Found some old pictures...I can't believe how I used to look!

Friday, November 18, 2011

This morning I was going through some old webcam photos (when I should have been finishing my paper...woops?) and I can't believe how far I've come this past few years. These were taken two years and about 45-50 pounds ago...ugh the chubby face! It's obvious how uncomfortable I was with myself.





And now :) I think I look so much happier, do y'all agree?


I love (and also hate) going through old photos like this. It's a reminder of why I chose a healthy lifestyle, and it also keeps me motivated. But I also can't believe how I let myself get that heavy. But the important thing is that I changed my eating habits and sedentary lifestyle, and I'm happier and healthier than ever.

Size 4 skinny jeans & tattoos!

Saturday, November 12, 2011

Yesterday I gave myself the day off from school (the only class I had was my gym class, so I missed my workout) because I wanted to get two tattoos since it was 11/11/11.


The first one behind my right ear is an asterisk. Andrew McMahon, lead singer of two of my favorite bands (Something Corporate and Jack's Mannequin) is my hero. Back in 2005, he found out he had leukemia, underwent two rounds of chemo, radiation therapy, and a successful stem cell transplant from his sister. He's now cancer free. He's an amazing person and one of the sweetest, most inspiring musicians I've ever met. He uses an asterisk in all of Jack's Mannequin's album art, which is why I got an asterisk. Also, in my favorite Something Corporate song, he makes a reference to 11:11, which is why I thought it was appropriate to get the tattoo on 11/11/11!
The second one behind my left ear is a lightning bolt. Basically, I got this because I love Harry Potter. I grew up with the series and films, and I am part of the Harry Potter generation. Also, J.K. Rowling is an amazing woman. The books are so much more than just about magic, witches and wizards. They're about the power of love, bravery, hope; so I got a lightning bolt to represent that (because of Harry's lightning bolt scar) Yesterday, the last Harry Potter film came out on DVD, so again, I felt it was appropriate to get this.

AAAAND I finally fit into my size 4 skinny jeans that I bought over the summer! HELL YEAH!

Happy Saturday!

Saturday, November 05, 2011

What a week... it felt like the longest week ever, yet it flew by. On Sunday, the boyfriend and drove up to Albany to see Mat Kearney. It was fun, and Mat was good live. I had a large amount of school work due this week, plus on Wednesday I drove 3 hours to Rochester to see Taking Back Sunday live (WHICH WAS AMAZINGGGGGG), stayed the night at my sister's dorm, then drove 3 hours back home to make it to class Thursday afternoon. All the craziness this week caused me to forget an important deadline for pre-enrollment next semester, so I lost my place in two classes, one of which I need to graduate, so hopefully there will be spots left by the time I register.
Tonight I'm busing tables at the Gala for the hospital, so I'll be working 4:30 until probably 1:30am. It's gonna be a long night but I need the money. In two weeks it'll be Thanksgiving break and I can't wait, ugh.

  


If you have a facebook, please help me win a contest! It will only take seconds!

Thursday, October 27, 2011

I entered a contest to meet one of my favorite bands, and in order to win I have to have the most "likes" on this one wall post. I have a ways to go because someone has 180+ likes so far. PLEASE HELP! All you have to do is click "like" and that's it!!

Jogged for 2.4 miles nonstop today.

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

I wasn't going very fast of course, but still, no walking whatsoever. Never done that before. So this is a new accomplishment for me, and I'm proud of myself. Shin splints are gone so my nice jog was pain free.

    Kudos to YOU! I know how great that felt for me last year when I started doing that in preparation for the Binghamton Bridge Run...you ought to think about doing that 5K...I've already signed up and I'm FAR from any serious kind of runner! :-)
