First I went to a yoga class which was fun but was really hard at the same time. I didn't realize that yoga would be so hard as it looks so relaxing. I really need to trust my body more and maybe it will become easier. <BR> <BR> After yoga, I went to Zumba class and it was really fun. The music was fast paced and the class was alot of fun but you get tired pretty fast. <BR> <BR>... Tue, 17 Feb 2015 21:38:26 EST Self Doubt http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5875487 I just started going to the gym and i'm learning that it is so easy to talk your way out of going. I used excuses like I don't have enough money or It's going to snow. It's either you want to lose weight or you don't. Simple as that. You have to really ask yourself how motivated are you. <BR> <BR> I'm going to yoga and I'm going to post pictures when I get home.

I got married when I was 22 and I thought tha...

So sick of being the girl that sits at home on a Friday or Saturday night. I'm waiting for God to bless me with a mate but it's truly taking a long time. Every time I meet someone the guy always turn out to be a jerk. I guess I have a " please jerks come talk to me" sign planted on my forehead. <BR> One of the main reason i'm trying to lose weight is because I want to look good for myself so that I can feel confident about myself. I just hope to look somewha... Sat, 6 Jul 2013 00:51:58 EST New blog post http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5409033 I found a new job. God is good.

Trust me when I say this .. losing weight will probably be the hardest thing I will ever do in my life. There is just many emotions that go into being healthy when your so use to just eating whatever and thinking it's healthy. <BR> <BR> Day one of the diet: I went to work and they decided to throw a party . I didn't eat much, but I sure wanted to. <BR> <BR> Day two: Day two was horrible. Simply horrible. I went over my poi...

I refuse to think I have a thyroid problem.. anyway.. I'm also getting into cooking my meals. This is so much better than going out eating all the time. Atleast this way I will know what food i'm putt... Thu, 17 Nov 2011 15:33:18 EST Tomorrow either my life will change or not. . http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4570305 Sorry I haven't been on spark people. I got an email and in it was a job offer. I've been busy studying my butt off for it.. I think it's just an assessment just to see how much I know in phlebotomy. I do have my certification but i'm still nervous. <BR> <BR> I'm going to work out tomorrow so I will hopefully feel alot better about the exam. It would be really cool to get this job because I really need the money. I don't have enough money to buy food or gas, or anything. Women like to shop...

I used to want to eat cake, cookies, drink pop, have chips and all that. Now it's not a big deal. It's not something I crave. I'm now craving fruit and veggies. I don't know what happened really. Sometimes you truly get tired of looking in the mirror and not liking what you see. <BR> <BR> I've seen alot of people drop weight and its h...

I had two new jobs but then I went down to one. I went thru all the training for the new job and now i'm just trying to get use to working and also working so close to home. God is really good. <BR> I'm now trying to get a phlebomoty job so that's taking up most of my time..

For some reason this week I have been so stressed out over many things. I graduated from my phlebomoty class and one of my clients is dying. Alot ot handle in one week I think. I think what I'm most stressed about is since class has ended I now have to look for a job. It's crazy when your dreams finally come true. I gues I just don't know how to handle it all. <BR> <BR> I worked on on Thursday as well as Friday and also To... Sat, 21 May 2011 23:54:37 EST Ready, Set, Go! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4242369 I created a challange for myself so that I can lose weight and have fun doing it. I am a biology major and I love science. There are a list a dvd's that I want. I figure why not make a challange out of it that way buying the dvd's will be more rewarding. I will first buy an good scale because the one I have now isn't working properly so i'm not really sure how much I really weigh. <BR> Here is a list of the dvd's that I would like to buy and how many pounds I have to lose to buy each one.

I'm still coughing, but I am taking medicine for it. I'm hopeing I can finish cleaning my room so I can get back to working out tonight before I go to bed. I went shopping today and I did buy alot of healthy choices. I did find out that I do retain water.This isn't a good thing when you are trying your hardest to lose weight. =( .. I was wondering why I wasn't dropping weight fast now I know. Anyway I won't give up. =0 Sun, 15 May 2011 19:50:01 EST sickness. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4222138 Today wasn't such a good day in my phelobomoty class. I got stuck in my arm 3 times and in my fingers 8 times. Very painful day. Nevertheless I love my class. <BR> <BR> I have really noticed since I joined sparkpeople that I have been eating better drinking more water. I have also be exercising alot more and I enjoy doing it. <BR> <BR> I have know come to brick wall.

Tue, 10 May 2011 02:14:54 EST Starting something new. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4211289 Hi everyone.. <BR> <BR> This weekend I will finally get to read and take in all that sparkpeople have to offer. I will be taking a full body picture of myself.Starting Monday I will use sparkpeople daily even if I didn't workout that day. Its sometimes hard for me to workout because I workover night and have school in the day time. After that i'm usually sleep. I think to myself if I really want to lose weight I'm going to find time to do it. I will be making a food list on Monday as well. ... Thu, 5 May 2011 00:51:45 EST The scale that never worked. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4018088 For some reason I bought a scale at Walmart (I love this store sometimes) and for some reason it isn't working. I don't think anyone can really gain 10 pounds in one day and then the next day lose it. I should have got the digital scale, but nooooooooooooo I didn't. I will buy another one once I get paid. I haven't been myself this week at all. I think it's really time for some prayer or some motivation =) Mon, 14 Feb 2011 21:23:09 EST ouch but in a good way.. =) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4005174 I'm kind of upset that I don't get to post on this site too often. I work overnight and I have an exam this Friday.. YAY! (not!!) =) My workout went great yesterday.. I can't wait until tomorrow. I get to do another fire 30 class. I think I have the working out down but I just need to get my eating back on track. I do get paid this Friday so I will be buying some healthy food. I'm just so happy to have found a website like spark people. It's really motivational. I just can't wait to buy my li...

I did post the food i've eaten and also I've been walking while watching netflix tv shows. I can't wait to post how many steps i've made today. I will be doing my 10 minute workout soon. I still have a cold today. =/ I don't feel all that great but I do feel great because my friend has now joined sparkpeople so I'm feeling motivated. I hope we both stick with this and have awesome weight loss rewards to post in the future. The snow is now cleared since the stor... Thu, 3 Feb 2011 15:52:37 EST Day One http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3975577 Today I wasn't feeling good and haven't for this entire weekend. I did workout a little but not as much as I would have liked. I am ready to start my workout for tomorrow. I am doing Turbo fire and hopefully I will see results. I actually like the spark-people exercise videos better. They are easier for me to do the moves. I just wanted to write this blog. I know I need to buy a camera so I can take pictures for myself for once. <em>277</em> Sun, 30 Jan 2011 22:28:04 EST
