Alright, the year is half-over. Time to check the progress of the goals that I made for myself at the beginning of the year!!!
1. Let go of "that person". I've recently ended a 2 1/2 year relationship, so I plan on leaving all the drama, hurt, anger, etc in 2009 and enter 2010 renewed and positive!
Update: This is still a work in progress but I can honestly say that it gets better every day! I won't lie and say that I haven't had moments of hurt or anger. Or that I have been perfect about not allowing that situation to take precedence over my life but... it's come a long long way!!
2. Take more time to count my blessings, really and truly, my life is on an upswing after a 2 year valley... but sometimes I allow myself to focus on the negative... in 2010 I will not let myself forget that I am blessed and highly favored!
Update: Yes! Yes! Yes! I have not forgotten that I am blessed! I have not forgotten that no matter how bad things are, they could be worse. I've been on a "fake it 'til you make it" challenge with my positivity and I must say it's working!! =)
In addition to my resolutions, I have a few personal challenges... these are smaller (to me) than resolutions and have a tangible end/result.
1. Maintain a 4.0 for the Spring semester (my first semester in college in 2 1/2 years!!)
Update: I didn't meet this goal ladies.... I EXCEEDED IT! My semester GPA was a 4.15! I'm on the Presidents List (never made anybody's list in college so far... lol). I made 2 A+'s and 2 A's...
2. Adopt a healthier lifestyle (not diet) and lose 25lbs by December 2010 (slow and steady wins the race...)
Update: Well.... lol! This is still my weakest of my goals... I've lost maybe 4lbs.. since January... that's kind of horrible! BUT, I will be joining Weight Watchers soon (when the funds are available) so I plan to really make my goal still! It's still very doable.
3. Relax my hair no more than 3 times in 2010... no excuses!!!
Update: So far, I've only relaxed once this year. I'm positive I will make this goal! Woot woot!!
4. My hair length goal is to reach APL (armpit length) by December 2010
Update: I'm 1.5 inches away from APL ya'll! So close I can taste it. I've moved my goal up to my birthday (November 10th) but I know I can probably make it way before then... maybe by Labor Day.....

The products that I use are bought with my own money unless other wise stated and are for personal use. I am not paid to show any products on this blog! Results are on MY hair, but that does not guarantee that products/methods/techniques will work the same for you (though I HOPE they do!!) Happy Hair Growing!!
