I thought I would try out the little workout generator on Sparkpeople, just to see what would happen. Let me tell ya, those little workouts are no joke. I did the 60 minute full body dumbbell workout at this link: <BR> <BR> http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitn<BR>ess_plan_generator_details.asp?id=125 <BR> <BR> I am already sore. Holy Moly. I knew I had a... Wed, 6 Mar 2013 00:02:59 EST Hashtag: Social Work Problems http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5249668 These past couple of weeks have been the most stressful weeks of my college career. I have had so much to do and since I am in a practicum 4 days a week, there is not much time to do it all. I'm pretty much working full time, plus overtime, for free. So that is my life at the moment. This past week has been especially bad because I felt like I had no clue what I was doing. It's like I have been a social work major for 4 years yet I felt incompetent. It also doesn't help that my BIGGEST pet p... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 22:02:47 EST Jillian Michaels http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5237111 So last night I decided I would do another Jillian Michaels workout. I have a kickboxing video (as I have mentioned before) that has 3 different workouts on it. I have only done one of the workouts on the video because it's my favorite one. I decided I would pick another one to do instead of my regular one. So I picked this ab workout kickboxing thing...it was workout number 3 on her video, if anyone has it. It was HARD. I survived the workout, but I knew it was probably going to be difficult... Mon, 4 Feb 2013 12:19:03 EST Fast Food Woes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5226627 So this week I have to go out of town for a training for my job, in which I have to stay in a hotel and everything. I leave today and I won't be back until Thursday. I am afraid that I will have to eat fast food all week. This is not only expensive, but also it obviously won't do anything to help me with my calorie count (or fat count...or any count). It's just not healthy. Straight up heart attack in my mouth unhealthy. Because I am sort of a picky eater, I don't like salad. So that proposes... Mon, 28 Jan 2013 07:33:18 EST You Win Some, You Lose Some http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5214408 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1154593966.jpg"> <BR> <BR> You know that feeling when you are entering in all the food that you ate at the end of the day (because you were too busy to do it throughout the day) and you just know you ate too many calories? That is how I have felt the past couple of days. I just knew that I overdid it when I entered in the food that I ate on Thursday. I actually cringed while entering it in. I was bad. I lost that one. However, it was not a... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 14:31:58 EST I'm Nuts For Hazelnut http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5209240 Let's say that my day started out by me waking up because I accidentally ripped my nose ring out of my nose in my sleep. Nothing like that searing pain of metal going through your nose in a rough manor. You would think that I had a horrible day considering that was the beginning of it (that is surely what I was thinking at 6 a.m.), but that is not totally the case. <BR> <BR> I did drink some delicious, sugary, calorie loaded mocha hazelnut coffee stuff. I did good until I drunk that damn cu... Tue, 15 Jan 2013 23:11:36 EST Beginning...Again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5207371 I don't know how many times I have tried this journey to lose weight. It's getting ridiculous, but I keep having hope that I will stick to it. I know I will stick with it this time. Today was day 1 of the new healthy me. I went grocery shopping last night and bought all kinds of healthy foods. I tracked my calories all day today. I worked out. I plan on taking my lunch to work tomorrow instead of getting fast food (though this is mostly because I am a poor college student and I can't afford i... Mon, 14 Jan 2013 20:49:55 EST
