Hello I'm alive!

Monday, April 16, 2012

Hey everyone,

Sorry for the absence. I went to Seattle for an anime/Japanese culture convention over Easter weekend and I had to do a lot of homework before and after the event. (As well as work) I worked security for it so I walked like 8 miles a day and drank a looooot of water from my camelbak. My sleep really messed up over the weekend because I was going from 7-8 in the morning or earlier till 1 am that night each night.

Sadly I've been working a lot of morning shifts at work and that usually meant breakfast at McDonalds. Uggggh... I need to start waking up earlier to eat oatmeal and just snack on gorp during work. I still have my walking and water drinking habits from the con even though the walking has lessened slightly to about 2 miles a day or so.

I am still training for Bloomsday and I appreciate the encouragement. I decided to make a new goal for myself. Well here are a few of my goals:

Cut out as much sugar and sodium out of my diet as I can
Stop the fast food
Drop to 130 pounds by July 20th
Drink 8 glasses of water a day
Sleep 7-8 hours a night
Also, work on areas of my body that need attention so that my self esteem goes up: (example: Get rid of this acne that's on my face)
Less time on computer

I really hope that I can lose those 35 pounds by July 20th. If I did that would be awesome and I would be slimmer in my bathing suit. Either way, it is important that I lose the weight because it is a lot of unneeded stress on my cerebral palsy littered body.

    WOOHoo! When I don't get up in time to make something, I grab a Mrs. Trio Bar and Banana, controlled healthy breakfast and probably cheaper then fast food.

    That is a great list of goals. I'm going to watch Bloomsday from home this year but I think next year is definitely do-able - Good Luck and have fun!!
