Social Media Addiction/Phyiscal Fitness

I lost track, but seriously, it's come to this: first thing I do in the morning when I get up is turn on my computer and check my facebook and twitter accounts. And I play Farmville. Everyday, without fail. And I've been playing since December. It's about time that I stop again. I deactivated Farmville for over a year for this very reason - I'm spending waaaaay too much time on this game!

So from here on out - the time that I spend on Farmville everyday will be spent looking for a full-time job and going to the gym to get some toning in. My health has been negatively affected by sitting around watching movies and playing computer games when I'm not at my sedentary office job. I've just been so physically and mentally drained with little to no motivation. Having been an athlete for most of my life I know that being physically active does wonders for body - both mentally and physically. I do know that I often feel 100% better after a good workout. Though knowing and doing are two completely different things.

With that, I'd to thank Kelly's Fitness for motivating me on the weekends!! 8am workouts on Saturday mornings can be a pain (literally), but it definitely puts the rest of my weekend into perspective and makes me feel so great!! It's also a great way for me to connect with my mom on a different level because we go together. We don't get to do a lot of things together, especially when it comes to sports and being physically active. Thank you Kelly, for giving us something to do together!

Accountability time. No more Farmville. My social media usage will be limited (a.k.a. no more stalking! I will call the person next time, instead of lurking on Facebook waiting for them to log in). My search for a full-time job will increase! How about a goal of at least 2 applications a day. Comment below if you're willing to hold me to these things!
