I'm still hoovering around 150 lbs, would really like to lose the extra 20 lbs. so need to get serious. Went biking today for about 30 minutes, but haven't exercised for about a week. Instead of focusing on the negative, I will look forward and reach my goal!

My favorite jeans

Monday, May 03, 2010

in August of 2008, I have this really cute picture of me and my boyfriend when we went camping, and I am wearing my favorite pair of jeans. I haven't been able to wear these jeans for over a year. I have that picture posted next to my computer so I look at the photo regularly, longing to be that size once again. Guess what: I'm wearing them with room to spare today!!!! So even though my numbers aren't budging on the scale, I know that i am making a positive change in my life, getting where I want to be.

My hatred of photos

Thursday, April 29, 2010

So, yesterday, April 28th, 2010, I was feeling really great about myself: I pulled a pair of jeans out of my closet that are usually skin tight, managing to put them on with ease and not as tight as they usually are. Woo hoo! Went walking at lunch, came back on a pretty good high that I am getting where I want to be. Then photo time comes where I need to hold a footpole up next to a tree for a customer. I bring the camera back to send photos to customers, and am disgusted on how big I still look, regardless of the loose jeans. Discouraging, but still staying on track. Blahhhh!!!!

    I have the same problem. I have very minimal pictures of myself too. I hope someday I overcome this.

May 1st goal

Sunday, March 28, 2010

I work at a used book store/comic book shop and on May 1st, I have to dress up as a comic book hero for Free Comic Day. I've decided to be Poison Ivy (fits since I'm a botanist by day, book dealer by night), but not so sure on the revealing costumes they have. My usual everyday wear is baggy clothes that don't do anything for my feminine figure. This is going to be difficult to pull off since I am probably the most unfeminine female known to mankind. So my goal is to get confident in revealing my arms in public...going to be doing hundreds of push-ups (not really that much but if I dream, dream big!) daily and watching extra carefully what I eat this next month. We will see.

*UPDATE* May 3rd, 2010: I went to the event dressed up as Poison Ivy, and I felt really great about myself. Sure, there were parts of me I wanted to desperately hide, such as my massive calves and ankles, and didn't get my buff arms I wanted, but hey, in the spirit of fun I had a blast.

Reality has set in...

Monday, March 15, 2010

So, I always start out pretty stoked about an excercise plan and say 'Yeah! I'm gonna do it everyday!' and then the second day comes around and I'm either already bored or find excuses not to do it that day. And then I skip two days and I say screw it, this sucks. I'm gonna be unfit forever. and then stuff my face with those tasty powdered donuts. So, let's try this: no planning on what I'm gonna do daily, just that I have to do something. But that already sounds like a plan. hhhhmmmmm........I'll hafta think about this a little bit more.

    I found you from the blog list. I am exactly the same way! I've been starting, planning, getting excited and then not following through (right down to those donuts) for literally years now. Today is ANOTHER day 1 for me. Hoping to find a way to finally make a lifestyle change that lasts! Best of luck to you!
