In order to be a success,you have to think big.
It’s Sunday and I just had breakfast before getting to work on my many projects. What did I have for breakfast? Energy food! I had squash, broccoli, carrots , brown bread & a cut of steak. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. My breakfast is usually a good one during the weekends but Monday through Friday it’s all about fruit and yogurt! I know I won’t see results to my diet immediately but the more determine I am to keep to my diet, I know I will achieve my goals. Happy Sunday everyone!
I’m hungry and cold. My body is so use to eating whatever and burning it off that this new eat like normal people thing makes me think I’m hungry. I had a light dessert after I worked out last night. Dessert was a mini, mini bowl of vanilla ice cream with mini bite apple pie & caramel.
My birthday is only a few days away & with that I made a new commitment to myself. The past year I have been on a spiritual journey. I have been working on it. I’m not as angry as I use to be about life & I am now accepting that some things I have no control over. One thing I never had control over was saving my older brother’s life after he fell ill. Our birthdays we always shared & this will be roughly the 5th year I didn’t share it with him. The pain of losing him is still there but it’s not as painful as before. It’s like God took that pain from me…I feel like something better is in store & I’ll see my brother again in time. Life is short. But along with my spiritual commitment I am adding a physical fitness commitment to myself. I am setting a goal to workout at least 30 minutes to 1 hour everyday. I am setting my workouts right after dinners. I am keeping hydrated and adding of fibers to my diet as well. My main focus is working on my core. Since graduating college,I gained 25 pounds. What can I say? Baltimore has good food but I don’t want my weight to get out of control. So I am doing this for my health & well being. I am a firm believer that my body will take care of me if I take care of my body. Will keep you posted on my progress. – Fromgirltogirl
Discipline is hard at the start but flows naturally down the line. Think about that the next time you feel like you’re going to give up even before you start.
There’s no such thing as too much Preparation. Stay focused & stay passionate.
If you want to be respected like a lady, you have to carry yourself like a lady. Here is how you do it: For starters,don’t be desperate. Desperation is never attractive & will prevent you from getting what you want out of life. You won’t get that dream job if you are desperate. You won’t get that dream love of your life being desperate. All you will get is a case of frustration and depression. Instead learn to be confident rather than desperate and cocky. Cockiness is not the same as confidence. When you are confident, you learn to trust yourself and your actions. When you’re cocky, you make mistakes & forget to learn from them and progress your way to success. Be careful. Lastly, don’t forget to smile. The more you do it, the better off you’ll be. Smiling can open doors you never knew were unlocked.
Looking for ways to keep your tummy flat? If yes, start by eating a fruit first thing in the morning. I mean really eating a fruit first thing – even before you brush your teeth. Fruits help your digestive system ease up and prevent you from constipation. The result is a flatter and healthier tummy.
If you have a son, teach him early to not disrespect women. Teach him to not objectify women. Teach him not to be verbally abusive. Teach him not to be physically abusive. Don’t wait until he learns in the streets to be a “man”. Teach him NOW.

About Andy Suzuki & The Method
Andy Suzuki & The Method are proving that there is still songwriting and soul in pop music. The band’s eclectic instrumentation, featuring electric violin, djembe, and piano, pushes the boundaries of the singer-songwriter genre. Andy Suzuki & The Method capture the energy of Sara Bareilles’ memorable piano melodies, Ben Harper’s thoughtful lyricism, and Dave Matthews Band’s virtuosity, delivering an unforgettable live show.
The band formed at Brown University in 2005 when band leader, Andy Suzuki, met hand-percussionist, Kozza Babumba, through a mutual friend. After playing the college circuit for a few years, the duo met violinist Jason Gorelick in 2008. The newly-formed trio ended up playing their first show at Brown’s most popular venue, The Underground. It was immediately after this sold-out show that the band settled on the name ‘Andy Suzuki & The Method,’ marking their official beginning. The band has been touring the east coast ever since, building a loyal fanbase and garnering rave reviews.
NPR declares, “Andy Suzuki…is blessed with a velvet voice,” and Time Out New York praises the band’s “deadly way with melody.” In 2011, WNYC Public Radio named Andy Suzuki & The Method the #1 band in Manhattan in their annual Battle Of The Boroughs competition, featuring the band in 2 show-stopping performances at WNYC’s Greene Space. TheUrbanDaily.com recently featured Andy Suzuki & The Method in their ‘Top 25 Artists That Need To Be Heard in 2012’, asserting that the band’s latest release is proof that “there is still soul in music.”
