So today is February 6th, 2012 and I have made up my mind. I am not happy with the way that my body looks and I'm going to change it. I know that I don't have the best eating habits in the world and I know that I need to work out more. I'm not going to do anything too crazy right off the bat. I'm going to take my measurements and I'm going to post them. I will take pictures along the way but I won't post them until the end to show everyone where I was when I started and where I am when I end. Right now my weight goal is to get down to 175/165lbs. That's 120lbs so you do the math. I wear a size 18/20 pants and I want to be back down to a size 14. I'm going to track myself tonight and see how many of each that I can do to get a base. I'm going to start off slow though. Starting to add a new activity each week. Eventually, after about three weeks, I want to add in P90X for two sessions (six months) then do the Insanity work out. My goal is a year from today to be down 120lbs and in a size 14 and to be toned and fit. I am looking forward to this goal. If I can focus on this type of goal with school then there is no reason why I can't do it with something like working out?

I will post pictures in a few months when I'm not so embarassed of my tummy and what not : )

London Streets

London Streets
Roaming the cobblestone streets of London
I'm a lost soul in a world I'm unfamiliar with.
Hiding in the shadows, watching you walk by
Reaching out for you, just slipping past my grip.

My heart aches for the reality of human touch
For the warm sensation, for the rush.
My soul I would sell again just for the gift.
To have my lips tingle from the devil's very own kiss.

Crimson tears stain down my face so steady
Falling like angels among the empty streets. 
Now is my time to rise to regain my glory
An evil monster the priest can not defeat. 

Alone in a world that I have never known
Hiding in the shadows provoking your nightmares.
Take a boat ride with me to hell
Your soul is plenty enough to pay the fair.

Roaming the cobblestone streets of Paris
I'm a lost soul in a world I'm unfamiliar with.
My soul I would sell just for the gift
To have have my lips tingle just from your kiss.
Just to be human for a slight moment again
I'd give it all up, this pure life of sin.
To feel the love rush through my veins
At a speed my heart can not contain. 

But here I stand. Alone in a world I do not know
Roaming the cobblestone streets of Rome
Searching for my place in the chilled night
Battle sword in hand, read to start the fight.

Running back into the darkest shadows
The righteous want my head in the gallows.
Here I will rest my head and close my eyes
Rest my tainted soul in the shadows of the London Streets.
