Getting Serious

I notice that when I don't keep up with this blog, I tend to gain weight. Last summer, I was in the 170s when I kept up with my blog. I slacked all school year and I'm 30+ pounds heavier and the heaviest I've ever been in my life. On the plus side, I don't look like I weigh 200 pounds, but that can also be a negative. I have embarked on a new plan. I'm doing the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred, and today was day 1. She's a tough trainer and she'll have you sweating through this quick 20 minute workout. I felt ready to give up at some points during the workout, but I pressed on.
On a side note, I weighed myself last week and I was 205 pounds. That number scares me. I know I may have been bloated due to my cycle being here, so I plan on weighing myself this coming Tuesday. I still can't believe that I gained 30 pounds in a school year. I vow to never be in the 200s again in my life, and I will keep that promise because I don't like what I see when I look in the mirror.

Setbacks...not Failures

I weigh approximately 205 pounds as of yesterday. This is the heaviest I've ever been. This summer is the time for me to settle down and really lose the extra 80 or so pounds I'm carrying around on my frame. I'm pretty sure that's the reason my feet fall asleep so often. I'm going to try and update often and I'm hoping to weigh significantly less than I do now with a combination of healthy eating, calorie counting, and exercise. I'll be an even better version of me! So I see this not as a failure, just a MAJOR setback. Skinny jeans, I'll be seeing you soon!

So today is Day 2 of Lent and I'm really craving something sweet. But of course, I gave up sweets for Lent. I think it's a good exercise for me to complete. I also gave up cussing, but that's another story. So I decided that since I was really leaning toward eating some of my stores of sugar on a certain shelf in my room, I would write a post instead so I could hold back the cravings. They are slowly going away as I write this, but I still really want some Girl Scout cookies or Hi Chew candy. But, if I can stay strong, I'll be really happy about keeping this resolution.
