Every day is a gift

I'm a thirty-something now, living and working as a dietitian in a small medical center in a small town.

I love exercise, nutrition, learning, MUSIC big time (almost all genres), hiking, the outdoors, magazines, theatre, learning about almost anything, cooking and eating, chocolate(especially dark), television shows, traveling and exploring new places, and most importantly my family and friends.

I had a quarter-life crises at 25 years old in 2006 and lost a shitload of weight and since then I've been passionate about life and the things I love. As of 2011, however, I have gained back 30 lbs of the weight I lost in 2006. I realize that fighting obesity and maintaining a healthy weight will be a lifelong struggle. I want to have a happy life despite the fact that I'm always going to be battling obesity.

A lot of this journal is just tracking my day to day life. Life is precious and I want to capture every moment. At times I use this journal for self-improvement purposes: losing weight, recovering from my long time eating disorders, anxiety, saving money, and dealing with my massive, longstanding issues with procrastination.

I used to mask my anxiety and ADD by constantly smoking pot, but I'm now trying to manage it by making lists and working on things in short bursts of productivity. I am obsessed with becoming more productive and successful.

I always keep it real, especially in my lj. However, I never give up on myself or achieving things I want. My perseverance and strong will to improve my life is my greatest strength. I'm always looking for ways to improve my life and be a happier, more productive person.

This journal has been and amazing friend and outlet to me. I don't know what I would do without it. I also can go on and on about my favorite tv shows, movies and music. Most entries are friends only, so feel free to add me and I'll add you back. I will be more likely to add people who don't know me in real life. Plenty of people read this who know me, and I'm fine with that, but I may be at my limit, since I write highly personal stuff in here. So basically comment and we'll see, heh.
