Introducing the New and Improved Kelly

I started school the beginning of this month. I thought now would be a good time to make some changes to my life. I have had a rather tempestuous relationship with vegetables, basically my entire life. Sunday dinners used to be quite a traumatic event for me. I was forced to gag down my veggies, mostly broccoli. According to my mother, when I was very young, I used to love broccoli and orange ruffy (fish) - both of which I cannot stand anymore. I decided a couple of weeks ago I would try different veggies. I mean, there must be at least one that I like. I'll eat salads with some veggies on them but it's not a very wide selection. I have since tried broccoli (again), green beans, peas and yellow peppers. I can't say that I'm a huge fan of any of them. But, I'm still going to continue to try.

I also joined a gym. I got up at 7:45 on Saturday morning and signed up, paid my gym fees and actually worked out for about an hour. I then came home and made myself an omelet. Me, ms. anti morning woke up voluntarily at 7:45 on a weekend and went to the gym. I just want to make sure you all understand the magnitude of this action. I didn't go on Sunday but I went last night after work even though I was dead tired. I only did about 45 minutes because i needed to get home to do some homework.

AND this morning I got up early and went to the driving range with my dad. Other than mini gold, I have never golfed before. Let's just say that the dirt clods traveled farther than the golf balls. Despite my obvious lack of golfing experience, I actually had a good time. I'm pretty sure we'll keep going.

I also want to take Rock Climbing lessons. There's a three class course offered by Rockreation that I am thinking about taking. I probably wouldn't have time to do it until after my cruise but I think it'd be fun.

So, say hello to the new and improved Kelly. Here's hoping she sticks around.

Yay for changes in life. Keep up the golfing and I'll probably join you.

Those are great changes, Kelly! Rock climbing is really fun and an awesome workout- do you have any friends who rock climb? And have you found any veggies you like? Maybe if you play around with preparations you'll like them more. (Roasting them carmelizes the sugars and makes them sweeter- maybe that would be good?) Best of luck with the new habits!
