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

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!!!!
Well, November is here!! New month, new start right?? Well, I wish I could say that I am going do this and that I will succeed. This semester of nursing school has completely exhausted me mentally and physically. Any spare time I have I want to sleep. My mind set is totally not in "healthy life style mode". It's in "pass this semester of nursing school mode". My stress level is is wayyyyy up there. I feel like I'm neglecting my daughter and boyfriend because all of my spare time is spent studying or sleeping. It sucks right now but I know itll all be worth it in the end. Sorry, for being a Debbie Downer.
My plan this month is to take it one day at a time. I will watch what I put in my mouth. I need to stop going through the drive thrus and out to eat so much. I will try to get my heart pumping as much as I can throughout the week. My boyfriend bought the Move for PS3 and he bought Zumba for me so there's no excuse because I have it at my own house. I definitely need to stop being a procrastinator with my school work cause this increases my stress level majorly!! I need to remember why I want to do this. I need to get my mind in the right place...
