This really was a great challenge to have during the holidays and I was glad that I participated in it. Although I didn't do the greatest I was more mindful of my eating during the holidays. I hope we are able to do another challenge but till then I know what needs to be done to lose these pounds and to get rid of these inches!! Yall are AWESOME!!!!
Beginning of the Challenge
End of the Challenge
Weight: 165.8 (-0.4)
wasn't surprised that the measurements didn't change at all lol
I started Jillian Michael's Ripped in 30 the day before yesterday. It's a lot like 30 Day Shred but it has its differences so hopefully I don't get bored with it. And if I do, I guess I'll just suck it up and keep doing it cause I know I'll lose inches and that's what needs to be done.
I started C25K yesterday and it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. After running outside this summer I'm really hating running on the treadmill. Gotta do what you gotta do though cause I don't think I'll be running in the teen degree weather here in Ohio lol.
I also found these daily workout things on Pinterest. Like yesterday was do 30 mins cardio, 25 left leg lunges, 25 right leg lunges, 30 pelvic thrusts, & 30 min deep breathing. They're different everyday of the week. Thought I'd give it a try and see how I like it :]
I've been looking up more recipes and trying to watch my portions. Now I need to actually make all the recipes I've looked up and bookmarked lol
I start my last sesmeter of Nursing school on Monday!! It felt like it's been forever but at the same time it feels like it's come so fast. I am so excited and can't wait to be a Nurse (although I feel like I still don't know a lot lol). I'm very ready to have more free time and spend more time with my family :]
COUNTDOWN TO THINGS HAPPENING IN 2012:
Military Fitness Test - 16 days :/
25th BIRTHDAY - 5 weeks
GRADUATING NURSING SCHOOL - 16 weeks
1st Wedding - 22 weeks
2nd Wedding (St. John's, Virgin Islands) - 25 weeks
3rd Wedding - don't know the actual date yet but they were leaning towards Sept...
Losing a pound a week is not too much to ask for since I only have 20 lbs to lose. And if I do lose a pound a week then I'll be at my goal weight by the time the 1st wedding comes around :]
And Have a Happy New Year!! May we all kick bootay in 2012!!!!

I have two more weeks left in this semester...THANK GOD!! This semester has really taken a toll on me and I'm ready for an actual break from school. No more studying for hours, no more waking up at the butt crack of dawn, no more crying, and no more stressing over my grade!! I'm going to enjoy my break.
I plan on enjoying my break but my plan is to get more exercise in and plan my meals. I've been focusing so much on school that I rarely focus on planning ahead with this stuff and I know that's helped me out in the past. I think the extra free time will help me out a lot.
Every since I started the BLC I've slowly lost weight. It's not as much as I would like but to at least see numbers go down makes me happy. I'm so proud of all the other ladies and all you other sparkies. WE CAN DO THIS!!!!
I'm very excited to start this challenge along with all the other fabulous ladies doing it!! I definitely need this oomph since my military fitness test is in 9 weeks!!!! LET'S DO THIS DAMN THING LADIES!!!!
