ASHLAUREN9893's SparkPeople Blog ASHLAUREN9893's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Reviewing goals of 2014 So today I was just browsing around on spark and forgot I had a set of goals I wanted to accomplish in 2014. Well I decided its time to tell you how those goals <BR> <BR> My first goal was to hit my goal weight of 145 well lets just say that's still a work in progress still have about 50 more pounds to go. <BR> <BR> My second goal for the year was to run a 5K, that didn't happen either.

Its been a couple months since ive last talked to you. Life has been crazy the past couple months I just lost track of myself. <BR> <BR> The past two months have been very stressful for me mainly with school. I just feel like im wasting my money and time. So I have decided to take next semester off from school and just focus on me. I shouldn't say im taking it off, ill be taking one online class, but for me that's nothing. I honestly don't have a clue what I want to do with m... Sat, 6 Dec 2014 14:03:20 EST Goals in life This is the third blog I posted in the last 2 hours! I am on a roll tonight guys! <BR> <BR> My last blog I talked about who motivates me and in this blog I want to talk about my goals in life. <BR> <BR> Well my goals in life are to obviously lose weight, finish my associates degree, then move away and finish my bachelors. <BR> <BR> The past 2 years I have been back and forth with the idea of moving to Nashville to finish college then pursue a career in music business. Somedays I don't wan... Sat, 6 Sep 2014 22:46:06 EST What motivates you? Today I want to talk about what motivates me! <BR> <BR> Im sharing something with you that no one else knows in my life. I watch youtube videos every single day. Its not what you're thinking I don't go there and watch music videos and other random stuff. I go there to watch web series( I think that's what you call it). I watch CTFxC, Shaytards, CarlieStylez, CR247, Cole Swindell, and Luke Bryan. These people to me are extremely motivating! <BR> <BR> Ive been watching Charles Trippy of the C... Sat, 6 Sep 2014 22:24:52 EST Changes. Good hello spark friends! Its been about 2 and a half months since ive last talked to you all. Life has just been so busy lately to do anything. Between classes starting back up and working almost full time life has been hectic and I really haven't had time to myself at all. I know, I know that's no excuse to get off track to some people but sometimes you just loose yourself in this crazy world and just kind of put stuff on hold. <BR> <BR> I must say I did have the best summer ever! Through ... Sat, 6 Sep 2014 21:36:51 EST I really dont know what to title this blog... Lol Hello everyone & TGIF! My day has been great so far! I was actually off work today! That's the first Friday ive been off in a long time! Today has been a very nice and relaxing day I was a little rainy in the morning so I just laid down and watched tv. I just got done with dinner a couple minutes ago and now that it has cleared up outside I plan on going to the park to walk here in a few. <BR> <BR> I hopped on the scale this morning and it said I was already down 2 pounds, in just one day. ... Fri, 20 Jun 2014 18:47:14 EST Update Hello everyone!:) <BR> <BR> The past couple days have been okay, it hard getting back on track once you been off of it for so long! I weighed in this morning at 195 <em>198</em> I don't know why I let myself gain TEN pounds in the last 2 months! So far today has been a good day! Tonight once I get off work I plan on going to the gym for the first time in 3 months! I decided the nights I work till 10 ill go to the gym after I get off and the days that I am off I will just go on walks! I le... Thu, 19 Jun 2014 14:20:37 EST third times a charm right? Hello my lovely spark friends! Its been awhile since ive been on here (52 days to be exact). Just kind of lost motivation for awhile there, but im back! <BR> <BR> The last month and a half my diet has been horrible and my exercise has been slacking A LOT! I miss how I felt when I was working out, eating right, and losing weight. Im ready to feel that way again! The past couple weeks I have been eating horrible! Since I work at a grocery store im always picking up unhealthy things for lunch a... Sun, 15 Jun 2014 12:56:31 EST Finally realized. I finally realized that I wouldn't be able to succeed in my weight loss with my spark friends! You guys are so awesome and keep me motivated with your kind words. <BR> <BR> Over the past month I kind of just let myself go because I really didn't care. I use to get up and actually look cute for school last semester but this semester I really don't care. I miss feeling confident in the way I look. All I wear now is leggings and a hoodie to class. Its time for that to change I don't spend thous... Thu, 24 Apr 2014 23:45:30 EST Longest blog ever. After eating bad for the past two weeks, I've finally realized how far I have come in my weight loss journey. Its stupid of me to give it all up now. I just got to comfortable in the way I felt and looked that I thought I could eat whatever I want and I would be fine. Unfortunately those skinny jeans are getting a little tight. <BR> <BR> Im an emotional eater, ill admit it. I eat when im sad or bored. I haven't really brought this up on here but I might as well. I do have a brother, he is 2... Tue, 22 Apr 2014 00:53:49 EST Little update Hello everybody. <BR> Its been almost 2 weeks since ive been on here. School has been crazy thank the lord I only have a month left! I am so ready for summer! My eating has been hit and miss some days are better than others. And my exercising has been okay the past 2 weeks ive gone like 6 times. I just get so bored at the gym sometimes. Now that the weather is a lot nicer I am going to start walking outside a whole lot more! <BR> <BR> I can tell on the days I eat bad I am so sluggish and tir... Sun, 13 Apr 2014 13:56:12 EST APRIL GOALS!! Good hello everyone! Its the beginning of a new month and you know what that mean!NEW GOALS & a fresh start:) <BR> <BR> This month im not going to set any ridiculous goals like losing 20 pounds in a month because at the end of the month I just get depressed and disappointed when I don't reach those goals. So this month it will be smaller goals. I haven't weighed myself in about 2 weeks because I kind of fell of track there for awhile so im nervous to see what the scale says so ill probably w... Tue, 1 Apr 2014 20:32:46 EST Plexus Slim It seems like everyone on my facebook is selling Plexus Slim and from what I hear is it works and you lose inches like crazy! It is pretty expensive $100 a month! Have any of you guys tried Plexus Slim? If so please let me know how it went and your results because I don't want to waste $100 for nothing! <BR> <BR> Thanks:) Fri, 28 Mar 2014 19:44:50 EST Spring Break I have to admit this past week has been really bad on my eating and exercising! I haven't worked out at all this week and my eating is okay until night then I always end up eating something sweet and way out of calorie range. <BR> <BR> Really haven't done much this week because it was spring break and I really wanted to go to the gym almost everyday but I just wasn't feeling it for some reason. I just stayed home and relaxed most of the time. Everyone needs a little break from reality every... Fri, 28 Mar 2014 19:30:43 EST Stressed out Today has not been my day. This time change has got my sleeping schedule all messed up! So I didn't fall asleep until like 3:30 and I had to be up by 8, and my throat was killing me on top of that! I did go to the gym after class and it did make me feel a little better. <BR> <BR> I finally came to conclusion that there is no way I am going to pass my statistics class. I've tried the best I can but it just doesn't come to me and the homework my prof gives me is nothing like the test. It just ... Mon, 17 Mar 2014 23:02:05 EST Cravings Hello my beautiful spark friends! Hope everyone is doing good on this beautiful day! As you can tell I am in a great mood cause it is so nice out here in Illinois. I skipped the gym and decided to go on a walk outside & I feel great! <BR> <BR> The past week has been crazy like normal with school and work I really don't have that much time to do anything else. I have worked out the past 4 days and decided tomorrow will be my rest day because I don't have to get up early for school and I wor... Sat, 15 Mar 2014 19:42:33 EST Little set back Last week I ordered proactiv plus to start using on my face. I never really had bad acne to begin with just a couple spots I wanted to take care of. Lets just say it was a waste of $40! It came in the mail on Thursday so I started using it Thursday night then I used it twice on Friday as recommended. On Saturday I woke up with this horrible dry rash on my face! Parts of my face were red and my skin was so dry and itchy. And it burned so bad. So with that horrible experience in the morning, I ... Tue, 11 Mar 2014 17:06:03 EST Randomness Hello everyone! TGIF <BR> This has been a great week for me! The has been beautiful the past week and that just makes my mood 1000x's better! Been to the gym four out of five days! Now that's pretty good for me. My eating has been great too. Except for yesterday, kind of went out to lunch with my friend and had a little more than I planned and then I had a candy bar. but oh well, its in the past now and theres nothing I can do about it. Not beating myself up about it either. <BR> <BR> Other... Fri, 7 Mar 2014 13:01:18 EST first weigh in Hello everyone!

Wed, 5 Mar 2014 14:47:10 EST Cauliflower Pizza Happy Tuesday everyone! <BR> Tonight for dinner I decided to try something new! I made cauliflower pizza! & it was actually pretty amazing. I put 1/2 head of cauliflower in the food processor then once that was done chopping up I added one egg and some seasoning(little garlic, oregano, and Italian seasoning) then about 1/2 cup of mozzarella cheese. Once it was all mixed up I just put it on a pizza pan and shaped it into a circle then popped it in the oven at 450 degrees for 15 minutes. After ... Tue, 4 Mar 2014 16:53:34 EST Just Do It Just do it- that's what I told myself today because I was dreading getting my butt back in the gym. I just kept on reminding myself there are 1440 minutes in a day and you can dedicate 60 of those minutes to working out! I did get in 45 minutes of cardio in the gym. So I finally sucked it up and went. I am so glad I did because I felt great afterwards. I think for me its having the energy to get up and do it. I am looking into buying some type of energy drink to have before I go work out. <BR... Mon, 3 Mar 2014 23:43:06 EST READY, SET, GO!!!!! Hello everyone! It hard to believe its the first day in March already! As I said in Wednesdays blog March is a fresh start. I am going to push myself harder than ever! Now I even have more motivation to get in shape by summer because I will either be going to Florida with my friends or go to Hawaii with my best friend and his family to see his sister that just got stationed over there. More than likely Florida because we can drive and its a whole lot cheaper! When I go I want to be in the be... Sat, 1 Mar 2014 12:59:34 EST March Hello everyone! <BR> I haven't been on here for about a week and a half! Seems longer than that!

I hope everyone is having a great day! Finally I little bit warmer weather were I live! YAY!! I got my work out in last night only for about 30 minutes or so but hey atleast I did something. I have noticed my work out buddy doesn't like to push her self in the gym and it drives me crazy!

Mon, 10 Feb 2014 15:00:22 EST The Weekend This weekend I went to go see That Awkward Moment and it was hilarious! I am going to admit I kind of over did it on the snacks, nothing to bad but I should have said no to a couple pieces of candy.

Sun, 26 Jan 2014 17:03:20 EST Planning ahead so ive been thinking lately that it wouldn't be a bad idea to make out a meal plan for the week so I don't have to stress about what to eat and then I wont make bad choices!
