I mean, I'm clearly sucking at it. It's been 2 YEARS since I've been serious and I'm getting really annoyed by it. And I know I know, "If you wanna quit whining about it, just do it!" and I SHOULD! In fact my momma gave me some inspirational words (that sadly were not meant for weight loss but for something else entirely, which....I'm not gonna go into. Too depressing).
She stated how much I was incredibly stubborn. That once I put my mind to something, I get it done. No matter what anybody tells me, I just fricken do it and am dead set on seeing to the end of that objective. If she and the rest of the family think of me that way, why can't I put that perspective into losing weight? I'll be honest, I know I'm really really lazy, but I also have to face facts that I am not happy about my body. And if I ever want to improve and make myself happy again concerning this issue, I should really stick to this. I have to.
I mean I'm not good at a lot of stuff, I need a hobby besides sitting around and reading the internet, and what better way than to lose weight and get into a better shape? If I can't go to school and if I don't have a car, I might as well just buckle down and DO IT!
So I'm gonna start completely over again. Going to see through this slowly, step by step, with my ultimate goal being to complete this within 2015.
Wish me luck!

Hey guys, long time no see. As you can tell, I haven't been on here for a while. That's because I went down an emotional rollercoaster ride, been baking/cooking up a storm (I had culinary arts mid-terms), and having work in general getting me off track. With Lent beginning and me giving up all kinds of red meat (except fish), I decided then and there to jump-start my plans and see what I needed to do.
The major thing I need to be consistent of is exercise, so I'm starting from day 1 for the 30 Day Shred DVD. I'm gonna try and get that to work around my work/school schedule. The other is to try to eat at least 4-7 veggies/fruits a day. Basically I just need to go back to what I did before and stick with it. I can't let anything hinder me.
Let's hope this week is great for me! Daily Weigh In's every Sunday until Easter (since that'll be my short goal for now)!

I usually call this my food journal, but today while I was browsing someone's Spark Page for inspiration, I saw that she stated that she kept a food journal instead of tracking her food here. I was very impressed by her (eating 9-11 servings of veggies/fruits, tracking it as a food journal and not worrying about counting calories, exercising 6 days a week) and I decided to see what was actually a food journal. I always thought it was this right here but she didn't show her food tracking in her blog. I'm probably guessing she did it in Microsoft Word, so I decided to google it and see what's up. The answers were pretty interesting!
I tried that format today and it was alright. It wasn't that great to me and I'm probably gonna try it out for a week to see how I do. If I feel stressed from writing it down from there AND from here, I'm gonna quit. If I succeed, well that's cool! My main goal wasn't from this journal but to be motivated, and it worked. She lost over a 100 pounds within a year and I hope to do that. A really good thing that stuck out was eating more veggies/fruits, and I need to improve on that. So no more eating just 2 servings of each. If I can eat at least 5-7 servings, I'm gonna be good. Let's hope I work on that well this week!

Man all this cookie making and stuff close to the holidays is really making me not feel like dieting this week. Like I really do not want to log in what I eat and stuff. I know I said in my previous post that I was just going to have one sweet dessert and salty snack once a week, but I completely forgot and seemed to push it out of my mind since I'm worried over what my family wants for the holidays. I WILL step it up next week, but this week? I have a feeling I'll gain all those pounds that I lost back.
The good thing I have been consistent about is my exercise. I haven't stopped yet and tomorrow will be my last day until my regular day off. I also have been eating with my calorie range, I just haven't been good at eating my veggies and fruits...
But I'll fix that next week.
