Summer '09

Saturday, July 18, 2009

Okay. It's been an entire 7 months since I started the SparkPeople program and I am ashamed to say that once the spring semester started up, I just lost all motivation. But now that it's summer, I would really like to lose the weight and be someone no one will recognize come fall. I've been going about it all the wrong way, not eating and starving myself. It's not healthy and I have to change. So here's to starting up again and hopefully losing weight the healthy way. I'm still at 180, but hoping to have some good news to report next week. (I'm going to be blogging once a week, just to have something to hold myself accountable to).

P.S. I also have to get myself back to normal sleeping habits. Going to sleep at 8 in the morning and sleeping til 4 in the afternoon is getting a bit ridiculous.

I am NEVER going home again/ New Years Resolution

Thursday, January 08, 2009

First SparkPeople blog and first blog of the year.

It seems that when I go home I lose all sense of self-control when it comes to food. It's actually easier for me to lose weight at school than it is to do it at home. It makes sense for several reasons. One, the kitchen is RIGHT there as opposed to down 8 floors and halfway across campus. Two, I can find anything in that kitchen when it feeds 4 other people. When on campus, I eat what I buy. Not a whole lot there considering I'm in college and broke. I don't starve myself either. When I'm on campus, I plan out my meals and buy what I need. Nothing more, can't afford it.

Poor excuses, I know. It's just that when I go home, this sense of lethargy and a general need to just lay around all day comes over me and before I know it, I didn't exercise or drink 8 glasses of water. Crap. SO. My New Years Resolution isn't to lose weight. It's to gain some freakin' self control. Which leads to weight loss generally, but it'll help me out in other aspects of my life as well. Yay for me!

So I fell off the SparkPeople bandwagon but I'm hopping right back on! I'm going to the gym today, had oatmeal and a orange for breakfast, and already had my first bottle of water and it's only 9 am. And I logged everything. I'm on the right track. Here's hoping I stay there.
