Lets dust this off

Trying to make decisions in my life. Maybe journaling again well help me sort things.

I'm trying to quit soda. It's going okay so far but I need to plan better. I finally remembered to get mason jars so I'm gonna try infused waters.

I'm also trying to cut down sugar intake. Pat of it is over tag enough to feat sugar and is starting to tate bad to me.

I should start exercising too.

I need to work on my resume. High time for me to move on. I'm real tired of customer service. Let me shuffle paper or just deal with machinery. I'm over people.

I'm trying to go out more. Meet more people but people here are kinda hard to read.



I made a commitment to update and go to the gym regularly. I find it funny that I actually go to the gym way more than I update. I've been doing progressively good. I can do more than 30 minutes on the elliptical and I've increased the weights on the weights station. I skipped all of last week though. My dermatitis was getting really bad and I figured it maybe because of the sweating but like Wednesday, I finally realized I could ask the pharmacist for a cream and he recommended this psoriasis cream that seems to be working but I still took the week off.

Yesterday, dad got Sprint's family plan and I got a new phone! Samsung Galaxy S3(and a new number, you can message me for it). Rog is buying my old phone.

Codeacademy has Ruby now, so I'm giving that a go.

(no subject)

So I washed and retwisted my locs on Monday cuz I was too lazy to go with the 'rents to the hairdresser on Sunday. I didn't use any locking gel, I just rubbed my scalp with my tea tree/castor oil mix and it surprisingly stayed, Theyre a bit puffy now but I like it.

Also tried the elliptical Monday, while I love the treadmill it doesn't necessarily love my feet. I had tried the elliptical before but I failed horribly. So I thought I could do it now that I'm doing great on the treadmill. I was not ready. I realize now I didn't pace myself properly, so now I'm doing a mix of both til I get it right. I think I'm going to start the shred next week, we'll see.

good thing I'm better at exercising than I am at journaling

So I've been exercising 5 days a week, sometimes it's 4 or 3 but I'm still doing it. I'm also keen on my portion control. Increased the weights for my strength training and that went well as expected. The treadmill is a different story, I increased my top speed 4.0 and had to stop with less than 10 minutes to go. I honestly didn't think going from 3.8  to 4.0 would be such a big deal but it was.

I really need to get a job though. This house is not for me.

Working on my fitness

Went to the gym with my dad in the morning and walked with them yesterday afternoon. Went to the gym by myself today cuz he wasn't feeling well. Figured out the spinning thingy and did better on the treadmill. I got the Insanity DVDs. I have no upper body strength and my arms are very weak, so gonna work on that.

I wanna do a small herb garden on the patio. I think I've shortened the list to what I will plant now I just need to figure out what I'll need.

Reworking resume and cover letter, again. Doing two of each, one for IT jobs and the other for not IT specific jobs.
