As some of you may or may not know, I am a huge Nate Berkus fan. I think he does amazing design and is just an all around cool guy. I DVR him everyday and watch him while I run on the treadmill. Most every episode he reminds us of this- “If your living space is a mess, it will reflect in all areas of your life. Your home should rise up to greet you.” He says this much better, but you get the general idea. I have decided to take his advice one step further in two ways.

1) Get some of my lard off. I, by no means am morbidly obese. I am 5’8 and 158 pounds, but my ass is pretty much huge. I hate to blame genetics, but I come from a large-assed family and even when I was super tiny in high school, I wore a size 12 pant (which is currently what I am rocking now). So, as step one, I have decided to try the Beachbody Brazil Butt Lift. I have done P90X, and as much as I liked Tony Horton, I just didn’t care for the program much. Who has time to do yoga for an hour and 45 minutes? Pass. So, I am hopeful that this will be motivation/exciting. Will keep you all posted.

2) Get out of debt. Again, this is not out of control. I have 2 credit cards and a school loan. However, I want a house. And I realize that Dr. Big and I will always be at a standstill until something drastically changes to alter our finances. I am now following a budget and in November I will have one of my credit cards paid off. I also recently paid my car off, so I am doing it, it just takes time and makes me crabby. I like to shop….

Anywho, the reason I am writing about all of this is to keep myself accountable. I might even take before and after shots of myself…..before debt and after debt, of course. I hope you all didn’t think I would be taking pictures of my ass.
