and i'm soooooooo happy! For so long i've been wearing my busted vans, which i know are not appropriate, but when you don't have nothing you have to work with what you got.
I knew i wanted Nike because i love their designs and the features so i chose the Free TR fit, which is basically a training shoe that can be used for mutliple purposes. I read through a ton of reviews and everyone had nothing but praise for these sneakers. So i can run,walk,jog,fly you name it, i can do it in. Well not fly lol, but you catch my drift. So here are my new bff's (:
They are so comfy and i can't wait to try them out. I think i'll take them out for a walk tonight (:

So the month of February wasn't all the kind to me, or should i say i wasen't all that kind to the month of February?
Did i really give it my all like January? Probably not,
BUT i still managed to break 193 and lose a measly 2.4 lbs compared to Janurary in which i lost 9 lbs.
So the month of March provides alot of possiblity's for me. I can reach 60lbs gone, graduate from c25k , and be on the brink ofthe 170's. I had a reality check while i was in my little, lazy funk this morning and realised Spring is right around the corner and Summer is not far off.
My little equation:
Spring+Summer : + + more
This Summer, i can't be hiding behind hoodies and over sized t shirts. That's an absolutle no no. I want to be able not to feel self conscious of myself.
So my goals for March are as followed:
*reach 187.7 which means losing 60lbs
*reach 182 (the weight loss goal i set for the PUSH challenge)
*end March weighing 180.6
I know i have alot of work ahead of me. I've never lost 10lbs in a month, but there is a first time for everything (:
Also in March i want to focus on strength training. I'm really not a huge fan, but i realised it is a must sooo i'm going to do strength training in a form of a dvd 3 times a week for the whole month. Hence that's why "crunch" is in my title. I love doing crunch gym's dvd's because they incorporate so many dynamic things into the workout.
Best of luck to you all this March
It's time to some a$$ (:

This morning i eagerly woke up early so i could go to the gym and workout, and then come home and weigh in. I don't know about you guys, but every weigh in day i wake up feeling so queasy. I guess it's because of the anticipation of wanting to see if your hard work payed off.
My goals for this week were to get down to 190, and i kinda pushed my luck at wanting to see a glimpse of 180ville.
Well, i step on the scale and see 190.6 and i'm more than thrilled. i'm getting ready to board that midnight train outta 190ville
::choo choo:: lol
So my mom is in the kitchen, where the scale is. I had to move that things out of the bathroom to stop me from stepping on it everyday. And as always she says, "Well done" She then asks me what my ultimate goal is. I said 100, and she went like this:
and my face went from this to this
To cut a long story short, she thought 100 would be too much and said i'd be one of those people who loses all the weight and doesen't look right. She thought i'd be good losing another 30 and just focus on toning
I explained that i'm 5'3 and my recommended weight is from 120 to 140, which i have no desire to be. To be 147 would be good for me.
These health people don't know what their talking about. To me you look fine.
And that's how it ended. Well it ended with us both being upset. She claimed that i'm not good at receiving criticism and started apologising for saying her opinion. (I hate when parents do that) I was hurt because i mean she completely shattered me joy.
Anyway, i'm still going for that 100 because from the beginning of these journey my goal was to be in the 140's. I love you mom, and i know 99.9 percent of the time your right, BUT, this time i'm right and i'm going for it, and there's nothing you can that will change me mind.(totally sound like a spoilt brat lol)
Haha( the kid nelson from the simpson who always says that, that's how i'm saying this lol)
Have a great weekend guys

My 21st birthday isn't going to be like how others would explain it, but it was one that i was beyond grateful for. Earlier last week i was funk and i was talking to one of my closest friends on here, Becky(AFTERMYKIDS). Well, i explained to her how i wasn't looking forward to it because right now financially things are tough for me and my mom so i really wasn't going to get what i wanted. I felt selfish yet upset at the same time if that makes sense to you guys. I should be grateful that i'm approaching a big milestone because their are so many people out there who haven't lived to get to my age, but then i felt upset because i knew i wasn't going to be nothing special because of the tough time we're going through.
Well, fast forward friday i was miffed at the scale because it didn't budge. I called it a lint licker (orbits commercial lol) and went to check my email. I log in and i see 76 unread emails. Huh? . I'm thinking ok, it's not my birthday not unless i put the 11th instead of the 12th. I check my spark email and i see that fussy me is Done Girl Of The Day. My jaw literally dropped. I was in complete shock . It was just an honor to be DGOTD, and i want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for all the lovely notes and goodies you left me. They meant alot to me and just made the start of my weekend better.
By this time, i'm already overwhelmed and i check the next email and see that i'm a spark motivator. Again i say, "Me" All i could just do was stare at the screen in complete awe, and think again, what a great start to my weekend. Thankyou all again who voted for me.
I just had to copy it so i could see :
So fast forward friday evening. I had agreed to help fix some candy grams for our church fundraiser, little did i know that they had planned to little surprise for me. I arrive at my youth leaders house and they blew balloons and had a coldstone's oreo cake waiting for me with a gift. I was so surprised. Nobody ever does anything for me so i wasn't expecting this. Usually my birthday goes by like an ordinary day and i'd be lucky to get even 10 people tell me happy birthday, so this just made me so happy.
The actual day for my birthday my mom brought me a bunch of balloons a card and a little sentiment to show her love for me. I knew she couldn't do much, but what she did i appreciated it alot. Our church had a women's breakfast so we went and afterward she took me out to dinner. We went to Red Lobster and everything was delicious. She even got the staff to sing happy birthday to me, which i didn't want but whatever lol. She also surprised me with a delicious oreo overload cake from Baskin Robbins (yes i love oreo's and ice cream; that alone makes me smile lol)
And the love from you guys just made me feel so special this whole entire weekend. My inbox was constantly buzzing with congratulations and happy birthday messages. You all are awesome. Once again thankyou for making this a great birthday for me
