No fear...

I have always been fit--but with that, my weight has always fluctuated. I have a small frame, so even a little weight gain looks unflattering on me. Having been so active in undergrad and grad school, I need to spend a lot of time working out in order to just maintain my weight--losing is the true challenge.

I am a carb LOVER in all ways. I love sugar and pasta--two things that I know I have to curb if I want to make it to my goal weight. I also need to quit smoking as my way of ...

I am a carb LOVER in all ways. I love sugar and pasta--two things that I know I have to curb if I want to make it to my goal weight. I also need to quit smoking as my way of relieving stress because I know it is not doing me any good (UPDATED: BEEN SOBER FROM SMOKING completely NOT EVEN SOCIALLY since August 15, 2011). It's a horrible habit that I have to break---which seems more like the story of my life--a life of bad habits.


I have so many goals so I wanted to put them up here to remind myself of them.

~get to my goal weight of 120 (done)
~quit smoking for good (Accomplished!!)
~quit drinking as often as I do (done)
~find time for me to get more sleep and focus on stressing less (In pogress)
~run a 5K and follow through with actually doing it --Cleveland Mini Marathon October 6, signed up!! (DONE!!!!)
~go to church more often (in progress)
~balance in my life

Sometimes I think I need a kick in the butt to be where I want to be, but I know I can do it. It's the fear that holds me back. I can't be scared anymore. I know it is going to be hard. I know it is going to take commitment and a lot of work. I know its not going to be easy. But I owe this to myself and for once in my life, I need to be a little selfish.

So, here's to a new day, a new try, and no fear....

Rewards:
Lose 5 lbs: Nails (done)
Run 4 miles full out: body massage (done)
Lose 10 lbs: indulge in a few spray tans (done)
