watching my weight

So today was my first day on weight watchers. after watching tons of jHud commercials, and my classmates, i was finally convinced. i get 28 points a day, and an additional 49 for the rest of the week. I worked out and earned 4 activity  points (i still have no clue how that works). i'm going to try this for 3 months, and see how it goes.

Day one i ate one smoothie, which was no points. an apple. pizza which was 10 points, an apple, a frozen light dinner 7 points, and a salad and a cupcake totaling 11 points.

i'm going to need more fruits and veggies

Dear God,

i believe you created all things, know all things, see all things; i believe that nothing happens without your knowledge.  i have to be honest, i know there are a great many things that i don't know, nor do i understand, but i'm finding it quite difficult to practice the things that i've been taught. Loving others, forgiveness, turning the other cheek, etc. Around this time of year, i grit my teeth, cry, ask for forgiveness for my words and thoughts, pray for insight, and cry some more. 

God i know you've seen all the things that African Americans have, and continue to deal with because of peoples prejudice. But for the life of me i can't figure out why you see all, know all, and still allow awful things to happen to us. You created me just like this, but why.  Why create a people that others would deem inferior and mistreat.  All the while those people continue to prosper.

i don't understand it. i don't know why you allow it. i don't know how long evil will continue to prosper. and i don't know how much is too much for us to bear. But i do know that we have overcome incredible obstacles. let down naysayers.  and Continued to trust in You.

So please, please, don't allow all that we have gone, and continue to go through for naught.

i am not my hair

Hair, a woman's crowning glory. 4 months ago, i decided i wanted a change. my life was in shambles (ok a tad bit overdramatic) i was just in a car accident, and nothing was going right. so i decided to kick kinkiness to the curb, and relax my hair.  4months later, i've decided to grow it natural again. 

why,  you ask.  i miss my curly goodness. i'll be the first to admit natural hair is a lot more to manage, but i really enjoyed the look, and how it made me feel. so i'm going back to my roots (i need to find that tshirt).

i decided it would be easier if i just cut my hair, & maybe it would grow faster.  SN i'm rocking a short cut bob, and hoping for the best.

i'll keep you updated on length, trials and tribulations.

na na na na hey hey hey good-bye

Good Bye 2011,  hello 2012Happy New year!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Last year was great, the first 6months i lived in Japan, snowboarded, scuba dived, climbed a mountain, lost 30 lbs., survived an earthquake and made some amazing friends. The last 6 months i started school, moved, strengthended my familial bonds, loved on my god babies, met some new people, totalled my car, paid off said car, met a convict (-_-), visited TN, bought a macbook pro, and got a 4.0.  All in all it was a GREAT YEAR!

Now i'm ready for an even better year! i'm not going to list all my resolutions, but i am determined to just enjoy being me, trusting that God's plans for my life are far better than anything i could conjure. Good bye to insecurities and people who are not moving forward or hindering my progress, trying even more new things, and seeing this amazing world!

This year's phrase:
Won't He do it
