Came across this community..and well at present I really am in need of some support..Also willing to give it as well..

Ok my name is Rikki and I work as a Stablehand/Strapper in the Thoroughbred Racing Industry..And yes..That is what is bothering me at the moment..My work..

I have always had a passion for horses..Extremely obsessed you could say..They have always been a constant in my life but lately I have lost motivation, inspiration and my love for them..Everytime I am working with them I don't feel as close to them as I used to be..It is starting to bother me quite a bit because I am extremely dedicated..Passionate..Hardworking..Responsible ect ect..and I want to show everyone how hard I can work and how good I can be..But I feel that because I have lost interest in horses..I cannot use those traits to reveal my potential to everyone..I feel as though I am letting so many people down..

I really don't know what to do anymore..

1. Continue at Paul's for at least 2 months
2. Work and Condition Tobi
3. Start exercising and plan a new diet..

Ok so they are 3 goals..I am hoping that I can keep to them..

This is the perfect time for me to be setting goals. Due to a class cancellation I have from school until January 28th so I should be able to get all this done as long as I make a list that really defines what I want to do.

Go the gym at least 4 days a week
write for a 1/2 hour to an hour daily
organize my books
clean out my car
apply to at least 3 graduate programs
read up on 19th century philosophy to prepare for next semester
finish making the silk flower hair clips I started
make a recipe book with lots of paintings in it
finish the stregnths and weakness parts of my college/job interview prep
finish all genealogy research related to JN and get documents
prepare a list of museums to send my resume to
copy my decadence notes legibly into a notebook

I also promised myself I'd lose eight pounds between now and Feb 1st.

This list is overwhelming me to think about but I know if I concentrate on doing the first two things each day and then pick one other item on the list to do that day also, I can get most of it done. I hope...

De-Cluttering my living space....and other goals I'm working on

Cleaning my living space has proven to be a challenge, but very worthwhile. I love coming home knowing that my house is more organized. And living with a pack rat of a boyfriend it can be a chore let me tell ya at times. But so far so good. I still have a few corners here and there to attack and organize, but for the most part it is done. One of my final missions is cleaning out the garage. Which will take place this weekend.

After the house is completely orgainzed I will then be able to organize my brain. It feels all jumbled up at times. Which can be difficult to explain. But my brain feels so cluttered that in order for me to move onto other things in life I need to get rid of all the junk that is taking up space in there. Which is where my need for a more spirtual life comes in. I am very interested in the study of Buddhism and Wicca. Both practices are very interesting and have very valid points for navigating through this complex thing called life. I still have calling the Darhma Center on my list for things to accomplish in the year 2004. They offer intro classes so to speak on dfferent aspects of Buddhist teachings.

I'd like to set aside time each day for meditaion and yoga.

Also one of my goals for this year is to start walking.

And Joe and I talked last night. I think that we are going to try and eat less red meat. Eat more fish and chicken. By the end of the year I'd like to be more toned and healthy. I am not realy interested in losing weight, I just want to be and feel more healthy,and maybe have my thighs a little more toned. I am going to the library today and I am going to pick up some exercise videos. I 've set a goal that the first week I will use one video one eveing a week. Then second week I will use an exercise video twice a week and then the third week I will use the video 3 times a week. That is the goal I have set for myself. Use the videos at least 3 times a week and then supplement with other forms of excercise.

My progress...

I've lost, so far, six pounds!!

Also, I took a stand for something I wanted. I feel so good. Because of codependency, in the past I woulda caved and given others what they wanted, sacrificing my own happiness.

I've started a diet journal it is tori_amos_rocks

Joined not too long ago...

this is my first post.

Some things I am going to get working on in 2004:

1. Lose Weight. I need to lose a total of at least 110 pounds. I'm going to push for maybe half of that by this time next year. This is how I will do it:

a. Follow a low carb, low sugar diet. This will
consist of fresh veggies and fruits. My meat
protein will come from chicken or some pork and
maybe other poultry. I will replace pasta with brown
rice or wheat pasta when I feel strong cravings for
pasta. No soda. I will drink either lemonade, tea
(which I will have to get used to), fresh squeezed
juice or water.

b. I will start walking twenty minutes per day.
After one month, I will increase to thirty, then
45 then 60.

c. I will find a videotap for exercise I can do at
home when I can't get out for a walk.

d. I will find a support group for weight loss.

2. I will work on issues of co-dependency. I will try to read some self help books recommended to me by someone very dear to me. I will also find a support group for codependency.

3. I will work to get "healed" of depression by this time next year. It is my desire to be off of anti-depressants. I will first find herbal remedies. I will find a depression support group. I will see if I can somehow get to a counselor on a weekly basis and find a new psychiatrist as the current one doesn't listen to me anymore.

Does anyone have any recommendations? Will anyone hold me accountable? That's what I'll need: accountability.
