Right now I’m in California (San Francisco to be exact) on a business trip. I lived here for 9 months and it’s been so strange to be back, since there are so many memories I have of this place. Since I’ve been back in town, I’ve hung out with my old roommate a fair amount and it’s been really inspiring to see how she’s turned her life around and it makes me want to do the same. She’s running in 5ks and marathons and raising money for various charities. She’s started working out and really focusing on improving her body and her health and that is inspiring to me. I really would like to live a healthier lifestyle and really focus on making my body the best that it can be.

I struggle so much with biting off more than I can chew and coming up with all of these lofty goals that never seem to pan out. I’m sick of it. I really want to have a new attitude about this whole diet, exercise, and life improvement plan. I don’t want to be complacent with where I am in my life. Health is one of those things that I’ve never taken seriously and considering all of the things that have happened to me in the past year *coughbloodclotcough* I really need to focus on keeping my body clean and healthy.

I want to use this blog to document all of that. I think that when I first started writing here, I was a little unsure of my purpose and not really thinking about what I need from this writing endeavor. Now that I have a better idea, I’m ready to start writing seriously and putting everything out there and focusing on finding a community and documenting my journey. I need clear, quantifiable goals and then I need to be serious about doing what I need to do to achieve them.

More to come…
