Something you’re looking forward to this year
Well, I am looking forward to several things this year for myself.
1. Work – (not sure it’s a looking forward to thing or a want/need) Ok it’s a need! I need steady work from people who will pay me on time. Another great fact about living in the Caribbean/Trinidad is that there are a steady stream of shysters, con men or smart-men (as we call them) who solicit you for work and then just cannot pay or pay you half and there is little or nothing you can do about it especially in a country where no one enforces anything and the law is just something in a book that we can’t access. I have some solid work lined up and I am grateful. It should pay me well but I hope it brings more. I essentially want to continue doing films but I need something more steady to fund it because I am not taking money from our local Film company. Why? Trust me that is a whole other post. I want to open a business but more about that later on.
2 – Losing the 10 pounds I have gained in the past year. I am not FAT I just like to look toned and I like the feel good energy I get from consistent physical activity. 2010 was hectic and my usual exercise routine and eating habits were completly thrown out of sync. On top of this my boyfriend is considerably younger than me and weight is not an issue fro him. I however being female and over 30 have to consider a slowly declinig metabolic rate. We eat out a lot and our options are usually limited and more often than I would like to admit, I have given in to pizza and fries ice cream and a myriad of other treats. I also went to London last year for 2 weeks and I ate like a freakin’ horse plus there was mayonnaise and butter in everything which I usually don’t eat. I lost those extra UK pounds I put on but I need to scrape the rest off.Living in the Caribbean also makes it harder to find healthy eating options (life in a developing nation). Reality. So like this blog I have to discipline myself to stick to my excersise ( 5 times a week) and just saying no to unhealthy food. I am doing the p90X thingy.
3. Watching my niece grow – Sounds like a plant eh? She is 2 years old and I totally love that kid.
4. Travel – I may be heading to Barbados for a Film Festival my short is in so, Yay! Looking forward to that! But I want to go to England/Europe and really experience it better than I did before. I’ve only made it to London but it felt so rushed when I was there as I was quite busy when I went. Maybe South America is in the cards
5. Finishing the last two courses to get my B.A. in FILM
So that is it so far. I have to go and work out. Today is KENPO X. As write I am suddenly thinking of all of the things I want to do. Hmmmmm…….That’s kinda good 🙂
