We are in the last quarter of 2010. And while I have been consistent in my exercise , attempts to eat well, and maintain my weight... I have not lost very much. I am thankful for the weight maintenance because we ALL know it's easy for weight to creep up. But now, in these last weeks I am ready to have a weight REMOVAL quarter.
In the next 13 weeks from 10/3/10 - 1/2/11 I want to lose 2 lbs a week. That will be 26 lbs lighter and it's at a healthy rate.
So, as I prepare for the years end, I just wanted to encourage everyone to KEEP IT UP! It is NOT too late.... start now, get moving, eat less, and MAKE IT HAPPEN!
p.s. my weight is finally moving down again! yay!
Goals for this last quarter:
 eat 1200-1550 cals most days
 burn AT LEAST 300 calories (on the days I work out) and work out 5 days a week
 Lift weights 2-3 days this week
 stretch daily. It can be brief... so I'm starting with 5 mins.
OK and my other goals are more personal, but I'll share a few.
 to spend time bettering myself.
 to have FUN again. I don't feel like I really have fun anymore. I've been pretty stressed and need to focus some of my energy on ME and on just ENJOYING life!
 to NOT give my time or energy towards people or things that don't want or APPRECIATE it.
 to give my all to school in the last few months before graduation!

within a challenge!
I decided to do a 30 day "eat food made at home" challenge!!!
I am on Day 2, and so far so good :-) Can't lie... I have been tempted a few times, lol, yep in only 2 days. I saw burger king and thought, well I could just grab breakfast before church and then I said... NO, I will just snack on these grapes and eat an omelet when I get back home!
Then I thought, (at a different time) I should just swing by McDonalds... I mean, after all I did just do a killer workout and I am feeling emotional... maybe I should just get something quick and easy... and then I thought, no I can just thaw a chicken breast and grill it real quick, and steam some veggies and it won't take that long! AND THAT'S WHAT I DID!
Oh so the details of my challenge are to eat *ALL of my meals from home... BUT, I get 4 FREE passes :-) I put those in to be realistic because I'm SURE there will be at least ONE time that I forget my lunch or have a lunch meeting that I need to attend, so I'm giving myself some leeway! but with only 4 passes, I'm being choosy!
So anyway, just letting you all know that this is my goal for the next month :-)
Hope you are ALL doing well!

Well... apparently time flies, when you are distracted.
I finished my internal medicine month and it was a pretty busy month working 14 hour days 6 days/week. Today was my last day... and I move on to another busy and EXCITING (I'm claiming it!) month = Child Psychiatry. p.s. ~ 7 months til I'm a DR!!! :-)
My weight has not really decreased much but I have been working out steadily and even counting calories and eating better foods. So now, I have to be patient and KEEP making the right choices. I am going through my habits with a fine tooth comb... and trying to find ways to make each step better!
I WILL REACH MY GOALS. AND ... I WILL be much closer to the final goal by the time 2011 rolls in.
Focus now, celebrate later.
I need results. I want results.... and I'm going to get them.

You spread beauty where ever you go and believing in yourself allows others to believe in themselves. - gonabfit
I am doing this for Her
The 19 year old me. 138 lbs. Too embarrassed to actually wear this bathing suit in public! I was in HAWAII! and I did end up wearing a bathing suit in public, but not this one because I thought my stomach and thighs were too big.
the runner in me 8.24.10 - Just ran 5 miles... nothing like a good sweat to clear your mind
the young girl who was teased for being fat. Though looking back, I wasn't.
and For HER...
the me who KNEW nothing could stop me if I tried... and felt free to be. Before I was taught by the world, that it was NOT ok to be different. before I wasn't enough.
I'm doing this for the HER in me. The one who was too afraid to accept the curvy shape I was given at a young age, too insecure to truly be who I am, the one who longed to be the PRETTY one, the one who wanted so badly to be thought attractive and accepted, who wanted to be healthy, who wanted to be loved. To the HER who never felt like ENOUGH.
WELL, to HER I say, you are loved. You were loved before you knew what love was. You are LOVED despite your thighs, your hips, your stomach-that is not completely flat OR a 6-pack. You are LOVED because you are beautiful. and the sooner you believe it, the sooner you can thrive in this journey called LIFE... because truly it does not matter what others think of you. I will tell HER that they are fighting their own battles, and even if they say hurtful things, it stems from their insecurities and weakness, not yours! Happy people don't go around hurting others. So send them a prayer and HOLD YOUR head UP. If I can do it for HER, I can do it for me.
Looking at the 19 year old Hawaiian me, I just think... It is soo sad that even then I felt self-conscious about my weight... that's how I know this is more of a self-healing journey than a weight loss thing. I was beautiful... and I SHOULD have flaunted every bit of the beautiful body I was given.... and even looking at the pictures of myself now, I know I am not satisfied but I DO NOT LOOK THAT BAD. I am going to APPRECIATE where I AM NOW, while I strive to improve myself... because tomorrow is not promised. And each day is a chance to enjoy ALL that I am. Now. at this moment.
why are YOU doing this?
