On my journey to physical health and fitness I have started jogging every morning at my alumni high school track. For 30 minutes I exercise alone, then at 9:00 I meet a childhood best friend for an hour of walking and talking. (Great bonding time)
This morning I jogged two laps and a 100 continuously. (900 m) This may not seem like much but the previous day I jogged 800 m (two laps) without stopping. I increased my nonstop distance by 100 m! I am truly excited. When I was 165 pounds I could easily jog a mile, now at almost 200 pounds it proves to be much more of a challenge.
I’m working towards an initial goal of a 10 minute mile. That’s pretty slow, I know but I would be truly proud of myself when I’m able to do it consistently. Not that I’m not happy or proud of myself now, because I am. My body feels great! I love the soreness and tightening of my legs back and arms (due to push-ups). It makes me feel GOOD, like I’m accomplishing something plus I’m totally relaxed the remainder of the day.
One thing I’m quickly internalizing is our biggest competitors is truly ourselves. Every day you must attempt to be the best you, better than you were the day before. There’s no need to compete with the guy next to you running a 6min mile. Do the best YOU possibly can, and that’s all you can ask of yourself.
Have a great, BLESSED and productive day!
I’ll keep you updated on my physical improvements.

Sometimes in life we are met with obstacles and adversity; we have to change our perceptions. Look at obstacles as OPPORTUNITIES to excel and reach a higher level, in life and spirituality. Exude positive, loving energy and watch it return x10!

I have known I’ve wanted to be an entertainer since before I could talk. Singing and dancing for my mom and all her friends had to have gotten redundant and maybe even annoying at some point. I even auditioned for my first play at age four. But being born and raised in the wonderful delta of the great state if Mississippi did nothing to help my chances of entering the performing arts industry.
Now at age 23 I’m ready to launch my career as an actress, writer, producer and director. I don’t have much experience or connections but I have a whole lot of passion. Marry passion with hard work and persistent dedication and I’m sure to get somewhere, right? I absolutely love the arts.(visual, performance, audio EVERYTHING) I want a hand in every aspect of the arts; live/recorded theatre, film, music, spoken word, any and everything I can do, I will do it. Even things I can’t.(but to the best of my ability of course) behind the scenes, in the office and center stage.
I’m going to be trying new things and creating my own opportunities. Join me in this exciting journey. Share some laughs, see and enjoy overwhelming heights and experience ground breaking lows; maybe we’ll even learn something together. 😉 It is and will always be the process that matters most, not the destination.
