I want change (not coins)

I want to change! But not alll of me!
I want to be better but it seems so hard
I want to lie in bed till its late, but there are so many tasks piling up
I want to eat what I want  like ice-creams and chocolate and dont want to be fat
I want to go shopping and have savings in the bank at the same time
I want to touch my world without leaving the comfort of my sofa.
Grow up! Get up! Take action, change is all I need.

(Rant Over)

I tell myself everyday and I mean everyday that tommorow I will be a better person. I know I have to take definite steps and be strict about it but its hard! I really do want to change so I can be a better person but its proving really difficult. It appears I am set in my ways! For example, I know I should eat more vegetables and fruits, but I load myself with carbs. I know I should exercise more, but I always seem to have an excuse not to go to the gym.

I have been thinking really hard and I think the time is now to indeed change these bad habbits. Its not going to be easy, but I must pay now to play later. So with this in mind, I have decided on these immediate steps and I will like you to challenge me on it every time you visit this blog. (This piece serves as a means for me to be accountable to you!)

1. Exercise for a minimum of 30 mins everyday (I have a workout DVD at home)
2. Eat Salad as a meal everyday and have at least 3 fruits during the course of the day
3. Cut out Sugar
4. Read something to help develop myself spiritually and in my career everday for at least 1 hour

My battle with acne

Pre - October 2010
Before I got pregnant over 2 years ago, I was one of those ladies with a blemish free face. I only ever had one or two pimples when it was that time of the month and that was it.  So about 6 months into my pregnancy, my face started erupting with pimples! You can imagine my horror when I looked into the mirror and not only had my face and nose doubled in size, but my entire face had spots! People said that I would be back to my old self after the baby came and I believed them.

Present Day
How wrong they were! My kid is 20 months old and I still battle with acne. I have tried a lot of treatments and just when I think I may have found the magic cure, the acne comes back with a vengeance! I have gone from expensive creams to the cheapest in my quest to find a cure. So I finally decided not to bother myself any more with expensive creams since they are not working.

I use body shop tea tree facial wash  and will start using natural products that can be found at home like bicarbonate of soda as an exfoliator, nutmeg and milk mask, lemon and honey mask and finally Aloe vera.

Fingers crossed something will work soon.
