Gotta Get It Together!!

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Gotta get it together because that's the reality of it all.

I got reaccepted into the Nursing program and started on Jan. 7. This is my second time around with this class so it should be easier...should be. Of course, nursing classes stress me out A LOT and when I get stressed I let it get in control of me and then I lose focus. I'd like to say that I won't let it happen BUT I know that's not realistic but I WILL work on it not taking over me completely.

Reality hit me too because my wedding is less than 10 months away!! AHHHH!! For some people that might seem like a long time away but really it isnt when I have 22 lbs to lose and maintain before then. I don't plan on doing any wedding planning while in school so I won't have that stress for a few months. The bestie (TASHISNOQUITTER) and I are trying to figure out a weight loss competition to do so we can both stay focused and lose weight for the wedding. We were thinking that whoever lost the most weight percentage wise would get their dress paid for. Like if Tasha won then I would buy her bridesmaid dress but if I won then however much her bridesmaid dress was she would have to put that amount towards my wedding dress. I'm already spending enough money on this wedding so I don't know what else would be enough motivation to not want to spend more hahaha

So here's the plan:

*Follow WW PointsPlus system. I don't have the money to go to the meetings but I still have all my stuff to be able to keep track.

*Zumba whenever I schedule is crazy so some weeks I can only go once a week and others I can go two or three.

*Make myself work out at home at least 2-3 times a week. I've pinned a crap ton of work outs to do so I just need to them or start Ripped in 30 up.

*PLAN ! PLAN! PLAN! I'm already stressed out enough as it is so I need to stay ahead with planning and with school work so I don't get behind and let the stress take over me.

*Eat out only one or two times during the week.

*Get to 160 lbs by the end of February.

    you can do it chicie! One thing that has recently helped with my crazy schedule is allowing myself just 20 mins. I can always find 20 mins. If i just do 20 mins, then i stop my DVD wherever I'm at; and I complete it the following day. It's better than nothing. And I find myself not doing the workout at all if i feel like i have to complete it because I will try to find time to do the whole thing, which is like, NEVER! =P

    Hope my tip helps out a little =)

    Yay! Your wedding will be here so soon. That is actually GREAT motivation - lucky you! I like an event that's far enough out (and meaningful enough) that it really excites me. You can totally do this! Good luck with Nursing classes & congrats

    Great plan! I'm sure if you stick to it you will be fine. Classes used to stress me out too, what helped was making sure I didn't save all of my school work for the weeknds. That way I had some free time to enjoy on my days off instead of spending the whole weekend stressing about papers, studying, etc.

    With such a busy schedule, it looks like you have drafted a good plan for sticking with your exercise and diet. Simply track your food, and tweak your diet for best rewards. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    BTW, congrats on the nursing program. You can do it!
