Here is the truth.

Sometimes I use this hir' blog as a journal. I start a new post, write it out, and then leave it as a draft.

And I don't publish it.

Because it seems a bit too raw, a bit too real.  There are real life people I know who read this, okay?

But, that is the whole reason for blogging, right? To express yourself?

So here I am...laying it out.

There is a woman I want to "be".  I think I have glamourized her into this:

Well, sort of.  I mean, I don't want to BE Cameron Diaz.  But that outfit on my body.  Sure.  I'd take that. Have you seen "Bad Teacher"?   I have...bad film, but Cameron?  She's got a hot bod {especially for a 39 year old--but she hasn't had kids, right?  [wink]}.

Sort of the Ryan Gosling of females.  {Or Bradley Cooper, if he is more your type.}  Or George Clooney, Brad Pitt...Swoon. Ah, how I could go on...

My intent is to get to a point where I feel a BIT more like this woman this year.  I have said it out loud: "This is 2012.  My year of being healthy, losing weight (for the last time) and being 'the woman' I want to be."

But let me take a step back. What the heck is wrong with this girl?
Nothing, really. Except that she is bad at taking photos of herself in a mirror.

But she I want to be healthy and active.  For me.  For my husband.  For the two youngsters I hope to see get married and have children.  I have a previous condition that might make that hard, so...

So, lose weight?  I will.

So, get healthy? Sure thing.

So, run?  Yup, you bet.

Are you with me?  Come back tomorrow friends, and see how I am thinking I will do it... and join me.  Tell me if you want to be part of our "Game On" teams in the comment section!
