Hello everyone & TGIF! My day has been great so far! I was actually off work today! That's the first Friday ive been off in a long time! Today has been a very nice and relaxing day I was a little rainy in the morning so I just laid down and watched tv. I just got done with dinner a couple minutes ago and now that it has cleared up outside I plan on going to the park to walk here in a few.

I hopped on the scale this morning and it said I was already down 2 pounds, in just one day. I think the first ten pounds will be the easiest to lose cause a majority of it is probably water weight the last 15 will be the hardest.

The past two days I have had the worst craving for pizza and taco bell. I was very proud of myself last night my friend had me take him to taco bell and I didn't order anything even though it smelled so good and I was craving it.

I've only been back on my diet for 2 days and I feel great!
Heres what I ate today!
-breakfast essential drink

-apple with peanut butter

-garlic and lemon baked fish(OMG so good)
- steamed broccoli
-watermelon and strawberries

I didn't go to the gym like I wanted to last night. Work was pretty busy and I was exhausted. But I am going to fit my walk in tonight!

Ill talk to you guys later.
-Ashley :)

Hello everyone!:)

The past couple days have been okay, it hard getting back on track once you been off of it for so long! I weighed in this morning at 195 emoticon I don't know why I let myself gain TEN pounds in the last 2 months! So far today has been a good day! Tonight once I get off work I plan on going to the gym for the first time in 3 months! I decided the nights I work till 10 ill go to the gym after I get off and the days that I am off I will just go on walks! I leave for vacation in 31 days! By the time it is July 21 I want to weigh 170! That's 25 pounds to lose in a month! I know I can do it but it will be a lot of hard work! I started meal prepping again today and that helps a lot!

Ill let you all know how my first workout goes tonight!
Talk to ya later:)

    Tomorrow is a new day. I too have a short term goal and that is to lose 6 pounds by July 4th. That will take me to 199 for the first time since I was like 12. I wish you luck and keep us updated!

25 pounds is a lot to lose in a month and if it doesn't work out -- just remember as long as you are going the right's awesome!

third times a charm right?

Sunday, June 15, 2014

Hello my lovely spark friends! Its been awhile since ive been on here (52 days to be exact). Just kind of lost motivation for awhile there, but im back!

The last month and a half my diet has been horrible and my exercise has been slacking A LOT! I miss how I felt when I was working out, eating right, and losing weight. Im ready to feel that way again! The past couple weeks I have been eating horrible! Since I work at a grocery store im always picking up unhealthy things for lunch and dinner when I do work! Individual digiorno pizzas have been my weakness along with chocolate, ice cream, pasta and pretty much everything!

In 36 days I am going on vacation to Myrtle Beach! & I want to be in the best shape of my life when I go! I have made a commitment to myself that starting tomorrow I am going to work out everyday & no cheat days until vacation! I am saying bye bye to soda and fast food until vacation! So today is my last day of unhealthy eating! Im ready to get back on track and start seeing results!

Thanks for sticking with me sparkfriends!

Finally realized.

Thursday, April 24, 2014

I finally realized that I wouldn't be able to succeed in my weight loss with my spark friends! You guys are so awesome and keep me motivated with your kind words.

Over the past month I kind of just let myself go because I really didn't care. I use to get up and actually look cute for school last semester but this semester I really don't care. I miss feeling confident in the way I look. All I wear now is leggings and a hoodie to class. Its time for that to change I don't spend thousands of dollars on clothes a year to just sit in my closet and not to look cute. Ill admit it, im just lazy lol. Thankfully I only have TWO MORE WEEKS of class left until summer vacation and I can not wait. I am so ready to be done! The past week I have tried my hardest to stay on track. I should have never gotten off of track to begin with because it is so hard starting over again with eating healthy when you really haven't in the past month. I can tell in my body that I have been eating bad my face breaks out like crazy, my face is swollen because of too much sodium. And im just so tired, I seriously take a nap every single day!

Here lately I have really been considering giving up meat. It just doesn't sound appetizing anymore for some reason but who knows I will probably change my mind tomorrow morning. lol

Ive also been debating if I should do a 3 day juice cleanse. Starbucks has a juice line now and it is amazing! Made with only fresh fruit. It is a little expensive to buy juices already made but it would probably be just as much buying fresh fruits and veggies. Im thinking about starting that on Monday. Anybody tried the evolution juice? I LOVE IT! Strawberry lemonade is to die for!

*Sorry for abandoning you guys for the past month. Starting tomorrow I am going to try to log on everyday. Im posting another blog tomorrow so stay tuned!

    Hey girl! I'm sorry you temporarily lost motivation! That's why SP is so awesome! I'm not on here as much as I should be but if you find some great people to connect with then the battle isn't so hard! I haven't tried Starbucks' juice line. In my opinion though, if you are going to juice and you have the money, you should do it yourself because you know that the fruit and veggies you are using are 100% natural. They have to add preservatives and other chemicals into their drinks in order for them to stay "fresh." When you make a juice at home you are suppose to drink it within an hour so you get all the nutrients. I was vegetarian for about 6 months and now have been vegan for another 6. It's a great way to lose weight and feel amazing! Maybe try cutting out meat for a week or two and see how you feel? That way it's not so overwhelming! Good luck! Let me know if you need any help or motivation!

Longest blog ever.

After eating bad for the past two weeks, I've finally realized how far I have come in my weight loss journey. Its stupid of me to give it all up now. I just got to comfortable in the way I felt and looked that I thought I could eat whatever I want and I would be fine. Unfortunately those skinny jeans are getting a little tight.

Im an emotional eater, ill admit it. I eat when im sad or bored. I haven't really brought this up on here but I might as well. I do have a brother, he is 24. My brother and I were really close until he went behind my back and started sleeping with my best friend from high school about a year and a half ago(shes 20 now). That's when our relationship went down hill. If I ever tried to get with one of his friends or even try to talk to one he wouldn't have it, never have. He tried to hide it from me for a couple weeks and when I confronted him about it he denied it, lets just say we both said some things we shouldn't have and we didn't talk for 2 months. I tried to tell my brother about her, but he didn't listen. She had a kid right after she turned 16 and I saw first hand how she talked to the father of her baby and I didn't want my brother to be treated like that so that's why I didn't want him to be with her. About 2 months after me and my brother stopped talking he apologized and so did she about going behind my back. I told him just to be safe cause I just had a feeling he was going to get her pregnant. And about 3 months later she got pregnant.

She didn't want to live by her parents rules so she moved in with me and my mom, my brother was still away at school. She had no job, one 3 year old, and a baby on the way. She pretty much lived off my mom for almost a year. My mom bought her and her kid stuff all the time, didn't make them pay rent or pay any bills.

My brother moved back home in August 2013. Hope was born October 30, 2013 Everything was fine and dandy until she started saying stuff about my mom and me to MY own cousin. She was saying how I was never home and didn't do anything and how my mom didn't pick up after herself and how she was stuck with all the cleaning. My mom has 2 jobs, she had to get a second job to support my brother, her, and the two kids. I am a very independent person, ive had a job ever since I was 16, always paid for my own stuff, and bought my own car when I turned 18. I don't depend on my parents. It doesn't bother me one bit that she was saying stuff about me, but when you talk bad about my mom that's been nothing but nice to you for the past year, that's when I get angry. So being the person I am I said something to my brother about it, and that just started a huge fight, it all started on Thanksgiving. They moved out the next day.

I haven't talked to my brother in over 5 months. We see each other here and there but we don't really talk if we do its short and only a couple words and you can just feel the tension in the air when we are in the same room. I know my brother is going through a hard time because he is pretty much raising two kids on his own (while she is out with her "friends" until 5 in the morning), one of them isn't even his. I can tell he is unhappy in his relationship because he tells my mom and dad all the time he is. I want to reach out to him and let him know im there if he wants to talk to anybody about it. After all, he is my brother and I will always love him and Hope. I can just tell in the way he carries himself that he is so worn out, unhappy, and depressed. But i don't know if i should. I will admit i am very stubborn, usually after a fight i wont be the first person to contact the other, they have to contact me if they want to talk. I just don't know what to do... Even though i hate to admit it, it really is starting to affect me, i have been eating so horribly lately its not that im depressed just worried. My brother was my best friends, he was the only one i could talk to about anything. I just really don't know what to do?
