Guys, I've been so horrible about trying to lose weight since 2 weeks before graduating.. For the past month I haven't worked out or watched what I ate. Luckily, I haven't gained anything. Which is a bonus..but it's not good enough. I haven't lost any weight either which is just as bad, in my opinion. I hate it.. <BR> <BR> I think my main problem is finding the time to work out. During school, I always had a set time to work out..whether it was right after school or at night. Now that I'm wo... Thu, 14 Jun 2012 10:35:03 EST Lots of change!! I am sorry that I haven't posted on here in a month.. My life has been so crazy busy!!! <BR> <BR> For starters, I am officially a high school graduate :) It's so crazy to say that. <BR> I went on a vacation with my senior class to the beach last weekend and it was AMAZING!!! I want to go back so bad :( <BR> <BR> I also got a job as a server. I like it a lot and I've made some good money for the most part. Bad news is that I've had no time to workout.. So I haven't worked out in 2 weeks. ... Mon, 4 Jun 2012 11:29:14 EST I haven't blogged in forever. This week has been crazy. Really, this month is crazy. It seems like almost every day I have something to do..blegh. I miss not having a life! :P <BR> <BR> Eating wise, I've done a really good job. I've been having a lot less calories on the days I know I can't workout. I haven't been able to workout after school because I've been doing lights for a school I'm not home till 10 and it's scary going to workout at night, haha. There's creepy men there.. So I decide against worki... Sat, 5 May 2012 23:07:41 EST Guys..big progress. I've always HATED shopping for clothes. Seriously.. normal stores never had my size and I hated the way I looked in everything I wore. <BR> <BR> My senior class is taking a group photo tomorrow so I decided I needed to buy a new pair of jeans because all of mine have become uncomfortably baggy. <BR> <BR> I've dropped 2 sizes. <BR> I couldn't believe it. <BR> <BR> I've worn a size 18 in jeans for the past 2 or 3 years. On a very rare occasion, I could fit into size 16 for one certain brand.... Mon, 23 Apr 2012 18:04:04 EST Triple C. Cake pops, carbs, and caffeine. <BR> That has been my life for the past 5 days. <BR> <BR> My class has to make and sell cake pops for an economics project.. Anyone that has made cake pops before knows that making cake pops takes a crapload of time and effort. My class has a bunch of slackers soo..only about 5 of us have done anything. <BR> <BR> Here's the number of hours of sleep I've received: <BR> Friday- 4 <BR> Saturday- 5 <BR> Sunday- 3 <BR> Monday- 5 <BR> Tuesday- 3 <BR> <BR> Killlll...

Mon, 16 Apr 2012 20:45:16 EST Prom #1! Last night was my first prom.. it was so much fun!!!! I wasn't excited about going before.. Last year it sucked and I didn't want to relive that again haha. <BR> <BR> BUT I'M SO GLAD I WENT!!! :) <BR> Okay, so I've never said anything about this before, but I am obsessed with Tongans. (People from the island Tonga.) AND THERE WERE SO MANY THERE LAST NIGHT!!!!!! :D :D :D :D I danced with one.. he was really cute and I was so happy :) :) :) hahah.. <BR> <BR> Sorry. Teenage girl moment there.... Sat, 7 Apr 2012 12:01:12 EST Update. Hello, all. I thought I'd give an update since I haven't really been blogging very much lately.. <BR> <BR> For starters, I have lost 24.6 lbs since January 21st. :) I am very happy about it but I think I've let myself start to slip. <BR> <BR> At first, I worked out every day for atleast 30 minutes. For the past month or so, I've only worked out about 5 days a week. I'm really disappointed in myself.. At first I thought it was okay because my dance and PE classes would make up for it..but si... Tue, 3 Apr 2012 17:57:29 EST :( Last Thursday I went to the doctor because my gash was turning red around the edges and tender.. She said it was definitely infected so she gave me prescriptions by mouth and a prescription antibiotic ointment. While there, she "cultured" my wound. (Took a big q-tip and swiped the area) The results came back in today. <BR> I have a staph infection. :/ <BR> I'm really freaked out.. I guess I shouldn't be..but still. I got new antibiotics so hopefully it will help. <BR> <BR> In good news, my... Mon, 26 Mar 2012 22:11:50 EST Woo! Last night after I posted on here, I decided to do a workout DVD because it was storming incredibly bad here. (I couldn't walk to the workout room because it was storming so bad.) I didn't want to not work out.. so I grabbed my handy dandy Leslie Sansone Boot Camp 3 mile workout DVD. My mom came in my room with me and we did it together. I felt really good afterwards :) <BR> <BR> Today, I did the elliptical for 47 minutes. I've never done it that long in one day before. (I was proud :D) <BR>... Tue, 20 Mar 2012 21:38:30 EST This girl has been injured.. :( I haven't worked out in 4 days and I can feel myself falling off the boat. I'm going to workout in a few minutes.. Pain or not. I need to workout. I hate this feeling. It's not like I've totally eaten bad the past few days since being hurt.. I just feel gross for not working out. I feel like my weight is coming back and I don't it to. <BR> <BR> So my injury.. Friday morning, I tripped really bad and a rock stone went into my shin. I have a gash about 3 inches long, 1/4 in wide, and about 1/2... Mon, 19 Mar 2012 19:08:04 EST BUSY! These past few days have been incredibly busy. I'm sorry for not posting anything :( <BR> <BR> <BR> I can't wait till next weekend.. Hopefully I hit my 20 lb mark AND hopefully I will be under 200 lbs for the first time in years :D I'm quite excited. <BR> <BR> It is so gorgeous here.. I laid out by the pool for an hour. It was perfect. :) <BR> <BR> Tomorrow my mom, brother and I are going hiking. :D I'm. Pumped. :D <BR> Mon, 12 Mar 2012 17:33:08 EST Weekly survey.. Day three: Do you count calories? What is your daily calorie goal/allowance? <BR> I do count calories a majority of the time. I allow myself to eat up to 1100 calories a day. <BR> <BR> Day four: Do you work out? How many times a week? <BR> Yes. I love working out. I usually do it 6 times a week. <BR> <BR> Day five: Is there any specific event you want to lose the weight for? <BR> Prom, college. <BR> <BR> Day six: Have you ever been overweight or underweight? <BR> I've been overweight since... Sun, 11 Mar 2012 13:45:41 EST To be or not to be, interview, and being a senior. Gaaaah.. In my english class we had to memorize Hamlet's "To be or not to be" speech. I have been soooo nervous the past few days about it. (I'm the biggest procrastinator in the world..) I finally performed it today and I was SO RELIEVED when I was done. :) <BR> <BR> In my speech class we have been learning about what to do and what not to do in an interview.. and guess what? We were put to the test in a real "fake" interview for a job. I think I did quite well actually haha. I was extremel... Wed, 7 Mar 2012 18:56:10 EST Day 2. Day two: What is your MAIN reason for wanting to lose weight? (Be honest.) <BR> I have a lot of reasons for wanting to lose weight. I haven't been skinny since I was 5 years old.. so I don't know what the "skinny me" looks like. I want to know what "she" looks like. I want to find happiness with the way others and I see myself, inside and out. I want to be able to wear a tank top and shorts and not worry if people are looking at my stretch marks or my muffin tops. I want guys to be attracted ... Mon, 5 Mar 2012 21:31:22 EST 2 month weight loss survey My friend found this survey for weight loss so I thought I would do it every day.. here we go: <BR> <BR> Weekly challenge: Pick one unhealthy food or habit you have (eg. Artificial sweetener, chocolate, eating after 8pm, skipping breakfast) and aim to go 7 days without eating/doing it. <BR> <BR> I am going to stop relying on artificial low calorie products. <BR> <BR> Day one: How tall are you, what do you currently weigh, and what do you hope to weigh after the 60 days? (Be realistic). <B... Sun, 4 Mar 2012 08:37:38 EST Really tough week.. This past week was overall really horrible. Horrible especially at school. :/ and partly at home. Oh and partly with my diet/exercising. <BR> <BR> Let me elaborate.. Recently it seems that I've had this obsession with weighing myself every morning. Whenever it showed that I had gained weight, I flipped out. I hate this. I'm going to start telling my mom to hide the scale until Saturday mornings when I weigh myself. It's such a bad habit that has ruined my week.. Exercise wise, I did some for... Sun, 4 Mar 2012 08:36:42 EST Landshark. There's this video on youtube about a girl turning everything into a Landshark.. If you don't mind stupidity and language, I advise you to watch it. <BR> :D <BR> <BR> <BR> Today was a pretty good day, actually! In PE we are playing volleyball and it got really intense! Both teams kept getting into a tie so as the bell rang my team won the game :) Boooyaaaah! I have no voice from screaming so much hahaha. <BR> <BR> I worked out for a really good amount of time tonight. I upped my strength +... Tue, 28 Feb 2012 22:08:29 EST I werkout. Why do I love spelling the word "work" as "werk?" <BR> <BR> Anyways.. I haven't posted very much lately.'s what's new! <BR> <BR> I'm going to 2 proms this year and my school prom is in 6 weeks! (The other is in 5D:) and I have YET to buy a dress.. So yesterday my mom and I went to David's Bridal. We grabbed an 18 in this dress I liked.. I tried it on.. WAY TOO BIG. Can you say satisfaction? My mom could fit her hand in the back of the dress with more room to spare. We then grabbed... Sun, 26 Feb 2012 18:43:39 EST I'm not good at thinking of title names.. I'm in a poop mood today. (Nice word choice, eh?) I'm really sick of all of the immature people at school who think they 1) run the world and 2) do not have to follow the rules. Like..really? Grow up. You're 18. <BR> <BR> Anyways..I'm really tired from being up for the past 3 nights. Tomorrow is a half day from school! Woohooo. :D I'm excited. <BR> <BR> I fail at posting today.. Not..enough..sleep.. :( <BR> <BR> Thu, 23 Feb 2012 22:06:56 EST Just got home!!! I had an awesome weekend with my grandma. We found the perfect prom shoes and I dress I can order online :) <BR> <BR> My grandma had an elliptical bike that I worked out on one day.. It was awkward to work out on but I still did it. She said that there was a workout room at the hotel we were staying at but there wasn't one :( Diet wise, I didn't do too bad. The worst thing I ate was half of a chocolate chip cookie. I stayed within my calorie range :) <BR> <BR> I'm going to weigh myself tom... Mon, 20 Feb 2012 17:34:59 EST So this weekend.. I am going to visit my grandma..which means no internet :/ I'm happy though. I'm extremely sick of the city so it'll be nice to just be in the country for a few days :) <BR> <BR> This Friday I am going to compete at the state archery competition. I'm nervous and excited all at the same time :o I'll blog about it when I get home Monday ;) <BR> <BR> Speaking of blogging! You all should check out my personal blog. <BR> <BR> I just started it a few days ago but I'm goi... Wed, 15 Feb 2012 18:33:59 EST Disaster. Nothing's a disaster..just my fave song at the moment entitled "disaster" ;D <BR> <BR> Yesterday was a grand ol' day. (For the most part) My best friend Cai and I went to the mall to go dress shopping. Sadly they haven't put out all of the prom dresses yet so there weren't any for me to try on :(( It's alright though! We totalllly scored at American Eagle.. where we bought matching headphones. ($2.50..normally $16!) and we each bought a pair of shoes. I got a cute polka dot pair of vintage l... Sun, 12 Feb 2012 22:27:01 EST I was wrong! I lost 2.4 lbs this week! I'm really happy about that. I'm down to 211.1! I haven't been this low since 9th grade, I think! :) <BR> <BR> I got some of my senior pictures done today. I felt really pretty and I absolutely adore my photographer. (She's the mom of my older brother's friend..we've known their family for 7 years!) I can't wait to post the pics on here :D <BR> <BR> Later on today I'm going to start looking at prom dresses. I really really really hope I've made it into a size 16! B... Sat, 11 Feb 2012 12:53:58 EST Scholarships!! I just got my letter from the school I'm attending in the fall and I got a really great amount of scholarships!! I'm happy about it. My goal was to get more scholarships than my older did and I succeeded :) <BR> <BR> I stayed home from school today.. I've been really stressed out lately and my body has been taking a toll from it. I'm all good though! I caught up on Dance Moms with my mom.. (yes..we're addicted) and watched Top Gun. (I fell asleep though..eek) <BR> <BR> I suppose that's al... Fri, 10 Feb 2012 18:30:29 EST I feel like I haven't lost any weight at all this week :/ I've exercised everyday except Tuesday.. and I haven't a calorie intake over 1500. Blaaah.. We'll find out on Saturday when I weight myself, I guess! <BR> <BR> This week has been rough though. I've had a crazy amount of homework. (Luckily the biggest project ever isn't due until Monday.) Still.. it's pretty rough hahah :) I got a call from my older brother earlier. (My older brother is a freshman in college and I miss him a lot) He didn't do... Thu, 9 Feb 2012 20:49:11 EST SHIN SPLITS will be the death of me.. OMG. I'm dying!! We ran for 8 minutes in my PE class today and I tapped for over an hour in my dance class. Daaaaah.. I'm in so much pain :( <BR> <BR> Whether I like it or not, I know I don't need to work out tonight so I'm not going to. I mentally feel horrible for not working out but I'm in an abnormal amount of pain :( <BR> <BR> <BR> I hope everyone's days were better than mine!! :) <BR> XXOO Tue, 7 Feb 2012 17:17:25 EST I've realized lately that it hasn't exactly clicked in my mind that I am graduating in less than 4 months. That is absolutely craaaazy to me :o It's also crazy that I've grown up with a majority of my classmates since elementary school. (my school is from grades 3-12) <BR> <BR> Anyways.. Today! Today was alright. It was a Monday and I'm not a fan of Mondays..or Tuesdays..or Wednesdays..or Thursdays.. ;D <BR> <BR> I've worked out every day for the past 15 days (a new record for me) but I'm debating whether or n... Mon, 6 Feb 2012 17:43:13 EST Today I don't feel like doing anyyyything. I just wanna lay in my bed.. Which is what I've been doing for the past 4 hours. <BR> BUT HEY. <BR> <BR> It's the superbowl! My mom made quinoa chili :) my dad & brother made stuffed jalapenos, cheese straws, and potato fritters. None for Maddie.. (okay maybe one stuffed jalapeno ;D) <BR> <BR> I've been in one of those "moods" today. For some reason at church I was really restless and I couldn't stop moving around and I definitely couldn't pay attention to anything :/ I feel bad but.. what ... Sun, 5 Feb 2012 17:59:15 EST Costco My family FINALLY renewed our Costco membership. So. Much. Food. I was soo happy. For those of you who are not fortunate enough to know of the heaven on earth AKA Costco, they sell items in bulk and have really amazing products. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for it.. we bought so much great food today and all of it I can eat :D <BR> <BR> Besides that.. I am down to 213.5! I really would love to be under 200 by the end of February. I believe I can do it :) <BR> Also! Working out at 11p... Sat, 4 Feb 2012 14:10:46 EST Push up, push up, CHAPSTICK. Ignore my Jersey Shore reference.. <BR> <BR> ANYWAYS. These past few days have been really rough.. I'd like to point out that whoever said high school would be the greatest years of our life was lying!! <BR> <BR> I got a call from one of my closest leaders at church saying that she really needed some help with her kids because 17 years ago, she was in a really bad car accident..and she hurt her neck really bad. To this day, it still bothers her to the point where she can't bend down or tur... Thu, 2 Feb 2012 20:50:48 EST Untitled. I feel like I've been on "pilot mode" the past few days. Why? Not really sure.. But it hasn't stopped me from eating healthy or exercising so I'm not complaining ;-) <BR> <BR> I think I have a pretty good relationship with exercising now. In my PE class, we have to run for 6 minutes straight. When my teacher first told me that I felt like dying because a) Maddie doesn't run and b) Maddie NEVER runs. <BR> To my surprise, however.. It wasn't terrible. I didn't go super speedy fast so I guess... Tue, 31 Jan 2012 19:00:56 EST Stop saying "I wish" and start saying "I will." I absolutely ADORE that quote. <BR> <BR> I feel like I should blog more than once a week so.. here I am :-) <BR> <BR> Today was really great. I woke up and even though I was cranky and didn't want to go to church, I did. I had a meeting after church which was very successful and afterwards my best friend, Cai (the one in the pic on my profile) came over and we worked out for 30 minutes and did some ab workouts by the pool. IT'S SUCH A BEAUTIFUL DAY HERE. After which my mom made us some deli... Sun, 29 Jan 2012 16:01:01 EST Week one: SUCCESS! I am happy to say that I lost 4.6 lbs my first week!! <BR> <BR> This week wasn't terribly rough. I can tell already by eating better and working out that I'm not nearly as tired during the day as I usually am. (As any of my friends..I'm always wanting to sleep.) <BR> <BR> Food wise, I did very well. I turned down a lot of food items that I know I didn't need and had small portions of the ones that I wanted to have. It's all about proportions, right? For breakfast, I usually had whole whea... Sat, 28 Jan 2012 09:07:06 EST Day one! The past few weeks I have realized several things. A) I am going to start my freshman year of college in 8 months, B) The reason for 90% my unhappiness always leads back to my weight, and C) I need to do something about it NOW before it's too late. <BR> <BR> I'm so sick of looking at myself in the mirror and not being happy with the way I look or the way I feel. I know I'm not the only one in my family who feels this way. I have two brothers, (19 and 16) who are both considered obese, a fath... Sat, 21 Jan 2012 13:36:16 EST
