I will however try my best to blog when I can. <BR> <BR> So I'm back at it again.. A whole lot of sitting around and terrible food choices has got be right back to where I started. I was surprised to see 182 on the scale and yet not surprised at the same time. Ever since the photography job that I was doing that had me working crazy hours, it's been a total dow... Tue, 22 Jan 2013 23:41:41 EST ABCs about me.. a nice step into blogging again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5213792 I know it's been forever since I've blogged and it's really something that I have to make an effort to do. I don't really know why I put it off because it does help me stay on track. <BR> <BR> Either way, thought I'd ease myself in with one of those ABC about me things! Saw this one of my spark friend DARKMOON1025's page and thought it looked fun. :) <BR> <BR> A - Available or married? <BR> Technically neither, but my boyfriend and I have been together for over three years and I'm hopinggg... Sat, 19 Jan 2013 00:59:57 EST Over 4 hours hiking and my legs are killing me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4858182 So we went hiking again yesterday! It was a lot of fun but needless to say my legs are sooooo dead today! The whole hike took roughly 5 hours (that's including 45-ish minutes of rest/food time), but at the end of it my heart rate monitor read 3032 calories burned!!!!! I have no clue how accurate that is, but I have my height/weight/age all programmed in and the calorie counts it gives me for my regular workouts always seem on point so I'm guessing it has to be somewhat close! <BR> <BR> The h... Sun, 29 Apr 2012 20:47:52 EST Staying positive! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4854791 So I'm back in the 170's. It was kind of inevitable with how much sitting around I've been doing since I've been unemployed, along with some not so healthy eating choices and not enough exercise to balance it all out. <BR> <BR> I'm going stay positive though! I'm doing something about it now. I'm tracking my calories again, I'm making sure I'm working out at least 5 days a week, I'm watching my water intake.. Although it's extremely frustrating that I'm up at least 10 pounds from my lowest w... Fri, 27 Apr 2012 11:31:31 EST Trying Jillian Michael's Body Revolution! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4851686 So I'm trying out Jillian's Body Revolution! I started on Monday and it been good so far! I've been doing the jumpstart first week, so I've been doing both ST and cardio dvds. I haven't weighed myself in a couple months 'cause I just knew the seeing a number would just depress me and have the opposite effect that I'd like, so I came up with a solution! To get my starting weight, I took a photo of the scale without looking at the number, then got my boyfriend to take the info and erase the pho... Wed, 25 Apr 2012 13:08:38 EST Getting back to my creative, artistic side. :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4842984 It sucks being a girl sometimes! I hate that super fat bloated feeling you get during your TOM. D: <BR> <BR> I'm also bummed that Josh and I haven't been able to go out biking yet! The weather has been so typically west coast - rain rain rain. Seems like we may have a chance tomorrow though, yay! <BR> <BR> Since I haven't been able to get outside, I've been continuing to entertain myself with Turbo Fire and Zumba dvds. :) Also been going down to the gym with Josh to get in some strength tra... Thu, 19 Apr 2012 17:57:55 EST Bring on summer! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4837832 The weather is finallyyyyy getting nicer, so I'm really excited to get outside! <BR> <BR> Went on an awesome hike this weekend on the Jug Island Trail, up in Belcarra. The temperature was just right, not too hot. One of the great things about all the rain here in BC is that it makes for beautiful scenery on hikes! Everything is covered in such a pretty blanket of moss~ <BR> <BR> Here are a couple photos from the hike. :) <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/5/1/l5163296... Mon, 16 Apr 2012 14:34:49 EST Guess I should blog at least once before February! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4711353 So whatdya know, it's nearly February which means it's been two months since I've posted a blog! Where the hell has the time gone? Seems like it was just Christmas, jeez. <BR> <BR> I've been doing a bunch of running around trying to get all my programs done for school which starts up again on Feb 7th. I'm proud to say that I finished my final one this afternoon though! The way it works is that every cardio, strength and stretching/flexibility routine counted as one program and I had to do 20... Mon, 30 Jan 2012 00:00:45 EST Oh, hi there December. :D http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4607773 It feels like it's been forever since I've posted a blog! I guess it has been over a week, so that is a pretty long time... I dunno, guess my life just hasn't been very exciting so I haven't felt much of a need to do it although I know I should be even if it's only a few sentences! <BR> <BR> Well, it's finally December! No one can deny that we are now fully into the Christmas season! Yay! Even though I already decorated almost a week ago lol. I really do love the whole Christmas season.. it ... Thu, 1 Dec 2011 13:02:40 EST Time for a new start! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4596113 So I had a bit of a breakdown last night. I think it was big build-up of frustration from my stagnant weight, the raging hormones from TOM and just all around feelings of failure. Luckily, my amazingly supportive, loving boyfriend was there to comfort me and talk some sense into me. I realize that my TOM had a lot to do with my emotions welling over like they did, but it also made me think about what I have to do. <BR> <BR> So, what I've decided I want to do is pretend like I'm just back at ... Tue, 22 Nov 2011 23:10:37 EST Feeling Accomplished! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4590746 So I finally got the results back from my Fitness Theory exam and I got 98%!! Horrah!! That's better than I was expecting! <BR> <BR> Also, I passed my driving test! I've been putting off getting my license for yearssss and now I'm finally able to drive alone if I want to! The province of BC, where I live, has a ridiculous graduated licensing system which I won't get into.. but needless to say, I'm happy I don't have to drive with a supervisor anymore! <BR> <BR> What else has been going on..... Fri, 18 Nov 2011 23:27:03 EST Wedding Photos!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4585376 Not at all related to weight-loss, just wanted to post a few photos from my brother's wedding since they just got them back from the photographer and they turned out really well! <em>337</em> <em>129</em> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/1/l8106927.jpg"> <BR> All the bridesmaids! The bride's sister (the blonde girl beside her that looks just like her lol) was 9 months pregnant! She had her baby 3 days after the wedding! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.spar... Tue, 15 Nov 2011 12:17:02 EST Had some time to think http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4583059 First off, I really want to thank everyone who commented on my last blog post, it really helped me to put things into perspective. I still have a difficult time dealing with my stagnant progress, but I know that I just have to be patient. <BR> <BR> I think I really have to take all the suggestions that you all gave me and take them seriously. I know that the major thing that I MUST do is TRACK! I'm absolutely horrible at tracking. I don't know why I just can't get into the habit of doing it.... Mon, 14 Nov 2011 00:39:46 EST What am I doing wrong...? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4577999 I HATE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! <BR> <BR> I'm SO incredibly disappointed right now! What's wrong with me!! <BR> <BR> I've been avoiding the scale, just trying to focus on how good I've been doing and feeling confident that when I stepped on the scale my efforts would show. <BR> <BR> I step on the scale this morning.. 167... What the F*CK?!?!??! is all I have to say!! <BR> <BR> I feel like I've been trying my hardest to exercise regularly (doing both cardio and strength training) and I've been go... Thu, 10 Nov 2011 12:33:11 EST Doing well! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4567582 I feel like I've been doing well over the last couple weeks! I've been getting all my workouts in and my nutrition has been decent. :) <BR> <BR> I just wanted to show everyone the vision board I made too! I'm pretty proud of it, I think it turned out well. :) <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/9/l799197933.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Also, I found this website which has suchhhhhhh cute dresses! I'm considering making one of my goal reaching presents to myself one of these dress... Fri, 4 Nov 2011 00:05:31 EST Can't sleep.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4560800 So I was just laying in bed but I couldn't for the life of me get to sleep. I just have so many things swirling around in my head right now... <BR> <BR> I just keep thinking to myself what the hell I'm doing right now. I feel like I'm completely wasting this opportunity of all this free time that I have right now. Sure, I've been working out and stuff, but not nearly as much as I could be. I know I don't want to overdo it, but I also feel like I'm really not giving it my all. I don't know wh... Mon, 31 Oct 2011 04:25:20 EST A little stressed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4554731 Feeling a little stressed right now... main thing is just being nervous about my test tomorrow. I'm feeling pretty confident, but I always manage to psych myself out before exams and stuff. I've been studying a lot and I think I'm in a good place. I just want to get that test over and done with! <BR> <BR> As for other things, still been job searching and trying my best to stay on top of my workouts. Had a really good workout today and I'm feeling good right now! I've been focusing a lot more... Wed, 26 Oct 2011 18:49:15 EST I love Fort Langley! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4541936 Josh and I went to Fort Langley this weekend and it was sooooo beautiful! I have to say that I just fell in love with it. It was just so inviting and romantic.. I could just see myself raising a family there. :) <BR> <BR> As we were walking along, I just had to take a photo.. it was so darn pretty!! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/5/7/l572437091.jpg"> <BR> <BR> And I also found the possible location of my and Josh's future wedding reception, hehe. The building just... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 16:01:54 EST Learnin' Learnin' Learnin' http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4541895 I've been learning a whole lot from my schooling.. there are some pretty interesting facts!! <BR> <BR> One of the biggest things I've learned is just how important carbs are (obviously trying to stick towards the more complex carbs when possible). I've learned that carbs are absolutely necessary for working out. I also learned that they are the main provider of energy for our brain and nervous system. You really should be getting 45-65% of your daily calories from carbs! My teacher kept driv... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 15:42:52 EST School, you are the death of me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4535913 I've been feeling pretty overwhelmed with all this school stuff.. this course is tough!! I had an idea of what I was getting myself into, but this whole fitness theory portion of the course is killer! It's all about health in general, joints, bones, joint actions, muscles and how they all interact during exercise. <BR> <BR> Needless to say, I'm not having a hard time with knowing where all the joints and muscles are, it's really a matter of the joint movements and how they coincide with the ... Fri, 14 Oct 2011 19:56:35 EST Feeling Frustrated!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4533924 I've been feeling so incredibly frustrated!! <BR> <BR> I've been on this plateau that seems like it's lasted forever and now I've been gaining weight!! I was wavering around the low 160's for monthssss and now over the last three weeks the scale has been saying that I've gained 4-5 pounds!! <BR> <BR> I quit my job a few weeks ago, so I've been at home a lot. I realize that I'm currently in a pretty sedentary lifestyle, but I was living one while I was at my desk job too!! I'm not sure if it... Thu, 13 Oct 2011 14:18:35 EST Back Again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4533033 Here I am again! I know I've gotten really good at this whole disappearing/re-appearing thing, but I know I have to start making SP a part of my life again! <BR> <BR> No excuses! I know that I'm truly missing out by not coming onto SP regularly. I know that when I was visiting daily, I was able to stay more on top of things in every aspect of my life. SP has so much to offer and I've just been stupid for not taking advantage of it. <BR> <BR> A lot of things have changed in my life recently,... Wed, 12 Oct 2011 23:45:45 EST Trying to change things up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3983285 So I think I'm gonna try to start doing a mix of my different workout DVDs along with going to the gym, so hopefully that'll help kick my body into losing weight again! I have quite a few DVDs so I'll try to do some different ones every day. <BR> <BR> Also, I've gotten into the habit of actually moving my body when I'm watching tv instead of just sitting there! Whether it be lunges, squats, pushups or ab work, it all feels better that just sitting on my ass the whole time! <BR> <BR> Also tr... Wed, 2 Feb 2011 09:33:53 EST Eating well until dinner... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3979901 Why is dinner always my downfall! I can control myself all day, but then we end up going out for dinner and I get a burger and fries.. In all fairness we were at a pub and there wasn't really anything in terms of healthy choices anyways but that's beside the fact! I have to learn how to work around social outings in a healthy way. Also, Josh and I reallyyyy need to start making healthier dinners again! We've been okay with making dinners at home but we've been getting lazy and they've been ge... Tue, 1 Feb 2011 09:39:31 EST Yeahhhhh, iPhone!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3977194 So I finally got a smartphone! Now I know what everyone means when they say that once you've had one you can never go back lol. Still getting used to the touch screen typing but I'm getting better! <BR> <BR> What I love about having it is that now it'll be alotttt easier to come onto SP whenever I want to! Of course this also coincides with my team being moved to a different floor so it'll be alot les easy to be on my phone at my desk without anyone noticing... Oh well, so is life. Plus, if ... Mon, 31 Jan 2011 12:36:02 EST Thank you, Mari Winsor! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3954021 Omg, let me just say that I did a short dvd workout of Winsor Pilates and it kicked my ass! I did the butt & thighs dvd and oh man, it definitely works them, that's for sure! <BR> <BR> My friend from work leant it to me saying that when she was doing it a couple years ago it worked wonder for her! So I'm really hoping that it can do the same for me if I keep up with it. :) I'd love love love to tone my lower half 'cause it's my major problem area. <BR> <BR> I've been doing pretty good with ... Sun, 23 Jan 2011 20:23:38 EST Winter blues http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3916272 I hate winter!! I don't know what it is, I just can't seem to get ahold of myself! This dreary weather and miserable are making me not want to do anything! I just want to be outside and be warm and do fun things! I realize I have the gym downstairs and the weather outside doesn't effect that in any way but it's just not calling to me like it used to!! <BR> <BR> Worked out Saturday, went on a nice 2 hour long walk with the bf on Sunday, worked late on Monday, was out and about all day today a... Wed, 12 Jan 2011 00:07:44 EST Survived the holidays without too much damage! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3904586 So I weighed in this morning and I'm only up to 161, so that's only 2 pounds up from when I weighed in about 3 weeks ago or so! Not great, but I guess alot better than it could've been lol. <BR> <BR> Finally got to try out the new gym in the new apartment we moved into and it was good! Really nice to get moving again! Really wish it was nicer outside so I could be out there though. D: Also, it's pretty much dark out by the time I get home from work and I don't wanna go running outside alone ... Sat, 8 Jan 2011 20:18:45 EST 2011 is off to a slow start! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3895430 A slow start at least in terms of my workout routine. x_x Unfortunately I wasn't able to exercise once again today! As much as I wanted to, the dentist's appointment that I figured wouldn't take very long ended up being 2 and a half hours!! I seriously don't even understand how it was possible considering all I had done was a cleaning, some xrays and a cavity filling! <BR> <BR> So tomorrow's gonna have to be my big start! I really can't put it off any longer, 'cause I know the longer I go wi... Thu, 6 Jan 2011 02:14:56 EST Ahh, a new year... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3886994 A new year and time for me to get back on track again! <BR> <BR> I've been in a major slump for the last month or so.. I really don't know where all my motivation's gone. Thankfully, I haven't gained back any weight but for some reason I just can't find that drive to get going again. <BR> <BR> In all fairness for myself, this last month has been pretty darn hectic. On top of the holidays, my boyfriend and I also had to deal with packing, moving and unpacking in a new place. I loveeee our ne... Tue, 4 Jan 2011 00:54:19 EST Short and sweet http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3727477 Just a really short blog before I have to go to bed! My shifts at work got changed, so I'm now starting a half hour earlier every day.. which means that my alarm goes off at 5:50am. x_x <BR> <BR> I had a great food and exercise day today! I'm really proud of myself! I've been trying to keep myself busy at night to prevent myself from snacking, so while I was watching Biggest Loser I made my nails all pretty then did some squats/lunges and ab work in front of the tv! <BR> <BR> I managed to s... Wed, 20 Oct 2010 01:37:24 EST Feeling fat lately, boo. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3724863 I dunno why, been feeling fat lately.. I gained a couple pounds back over the Thanksgiving weekend, so just haven't been feeling too great. <BR> <BR> Was kinda sick last week and didn't get a ton of exercise in, only 3 days last week. Had a super nice walk around Burnaby Lake though~ <BR> <BR> Have to keep on track with my food! Have to keep on track with my workouts! I vow that I will NOT gain back anymore weight! I'm determined to be well into the 150's by the end of the year! <BR> <BR>... Tue, 19 Oct 2010 00:13:23 EST Turkey Belly. x_x http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3709211 Omg, let's just say that this weekend definitelyyyyy wasn't ideal in terms of keeping on track. x_x It's a good thing that I don't go to my mom's place very often, 'cause I never get my workouts in and I always eat a ton of junk food. ~_~ <BR> <BR> That said, I had a really nice weekend! It's always great getting to spend time with family. :) It's been a long time since both me and my brother were able to go over to my mom's place at the same time, so it was awesome! Unfortunately, Josh coul... Mon, 11 Oct 2010 23:57:01 EST Pretty uneventful weekend.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3693036 Soooo my weekend was pretty dull for the most part, didn't do a ton of stuff, but it's always nice to have time off from work! Get to spend more time with the boyfriend and just do whatever. :) <BR> <BR> The one exciting event of my weekend though was girl's night! SO much fun! The only bad thing that goes along with girls night is the booze and junk food. ~_~ Have to admit that I consumed wayyyyy more chips than I should have. x_x I'm not gonna regret it though, 'cause it was my night to ha... Tue, 5 Oct 2010 00:37:15 EST Dance Dance, Fun! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3683763 I played DDR (dance dance revolution) today for my workout! SO much fun, I love it! You'd never really think of a game as being a /good/ workout, but it really is! It's pure cardio! I average about 600 calories lost per hour, the same as when I'm down at the gym! Plus, it's just so much more fun and it doesn't even feel like exercise! You get so into it that you don't even realize that your heart is racing til you're done dancing lol. I totally encourage anyone to try it if they wanna spice u... Fri, 1 Oct 2010 01:59:06 EST Here's trying this once again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3678369 I've been completely failingggg at keeping on track recently.. I feel horrible that I haven't even been on here in a couple months! <BR> <BR> In all fairness, I haven't gaineddd any of my weight back, but I certainly haven't lost as much as I could have! The last time I weighed in, I was 158, but that's still 18 pounds away from my goal!! <BR> <BR> I'm gonna try this whole blogging thing again! I think it's just a matter of fitting it into my routine! <BR> <BR> Guess we'll see what happens... Tue, 28 Sep 2010 23:49:13 EST Down another 5 pounds!! C'monnnn 150's!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3422145 Sooooo... I FINALLY weighed myself after a couple months and I'm down another 5 pounds!! YAY!! Sure, I'm kind of disappointed in myself that I didn't get even more done within this time, but I can't change the past so I just have to celebrate what I did achieve! <BR> <BR> I'm almost out of the 160's! Pretty freakin' exciting since before this year, I haven't been in the 160's for a good 8-9 years, let alone in the 150's!! I'm going through changes and it feels GREAT!! I still have a ways so ... Mon, 12 Jul 2010 01:03:37 EST Just a quickie! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3384679 Just a quick update before I head to bed! Need to get a good amount of rest! <BR> <BR> The last couple days have been going pretty well! Josh and I helped our friends move on the weekend, so that was a good 3 hour workout within itself! All went smoothly though. :) Hung out with our other friends afterwards.. had a game night! Fun times! Not gonna lie though, I had some chips and beer. x_x <BR> <BR> Sunday was a pretty lazy day, neither Josh or myself was feeling very good, but ended up goi...

D: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3365342 Hey everyone! <BR> <BR> I know alot of you have probably been wondering what the hell happened to me! I wish I had some marvelous excuse, but I really don't. Aside from being really busy lately, I have no great excuses for not coming on here... I feel kind of pathetic actually.. I feel like I've let you guys down 'cause I always said I'd be here for support and for the last two months I haven't... <BR> <BR> I'm really sorry! I really hope you all have been doing well! I know I'm not so impo...

I've been so freakin busy! <BR> <BR> Last week I got my learner's license on Monday (believe me, I know I should've gotten it earlier!), dentist on Tuesday, brother's girlfriend's birthday dinner on Wednesday, my boyfriend's birthday dinner Thursday, then had company over Friday! Finallyyyy got to get in a good gym session on Saturday! Sunday was super busy too.. got up, did an awesome super clean o...

(I know I'm up MUCH later than I should be.) <BR> <BR> I wanted to let you all know that I am now the proud owner of a pair of size 11 jeans! For the first time in.. who knows how long! 8 years? 9 years? I really long ass time, let's just put it that way! <BR> <BR> I'm feeling SO good! I can't wait to go down yet another size!! <BR> <BR> This week hasn't been a great week for working out, just 'cause I've been super busy. Went on another 10K walk aroun... Wed, 14 Apr 2010 02:31:46 EST Reallllllly need to get back into my routine! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3059248 This past month has been really off for me and I'm not liking it! I've still been losing weight... slowly.. but definitely not shedding the 2 pounds a week that I was before. I think between moving and everything else, it's been hard to keep on track! <BR> <BR> Right now, I'm sitting at 168 which is AWESOME! I can't even remember the last time that I was in the 160's so it's a HUGE accomplishment for me! I can't wait to see how the 150's and less feel! <BR> <BR> I think I've decided that I ...

Life's been hectic though! I totally hate that I can't go on at work anymore, it's such a pain in the ass!! I'll try my best to be better though! I really do miss reading all your guys' blogs. D: <BR> <BR> What's been happening with me lately? Been organizing and packing still.. have a bunch more to do too. Been working and exercising as normal~ All the hours in the day just seem to pass too quickly! ... Sat, 13 Mar 2010 04:43:01 EST Quick blog! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2971551 Hey all! Sorry I've been so MIA lately! Now that I can't go on Spark at work, I have to make sure to make the time every night to do it. x_x I'll just have to change around my routine a little bit!! <BR> <BR> I didn't weigh in this week 'cause it's my TOM, so hopefully I'll see an awesome number next week! <BR> <BR> Yesterday, my boyfriend Josh and I walked around the Stanley Park seawall, which is 10km! SO pretty! We also walked all the way there from the train station and all the way back... Mon, 8 Mar 2010 03:14:14 EST 101 mini goals for 2010! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2947913 Stole this idea from MAGPIE17 'cause it really made me think of what I want to accompish this year and she's been doing SO freakin' well with hers!! :) <BR> <BR> So after quite a bit of thought, here are the 101 things I want to do this year! <BR> <BR> 1. Start getting volunteer experience working with children before going for my ECE diploma. <BR> <BR> 2. Get rid of all clothing and shoes I don't fit or wear anymore. <em>9</em> <BR> <BR> 3. Use up all the bath, beauty and bodycare pr... Tue, 2 Mar 2010 11:18:32 EST February's progress and thoughts on weightloss. :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2944788 So I'd say that even with some minor setbacks, February was pretty dang successful! <BR> <BR> I started out the month at 178.5 and ended it at 172.5! A 6 pound loss, I'd say that's pretty awesome! Mind you, I did have a week of only maintaining 'cause it was filled with not-so-great eating and not enough exercise. <BR> <BR> I'm really excited to see what March will bring me! I think with the Olympics being over now, it'll definitely cut down on the amount that I'll be going out and the posi... Mon, 1 Mar 2010 19:01:43 EST Actually down another pound! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2933381 Just wanted to make a quick blog to say that I actually AM down another pound, woohoo! <BR> <BR> So I guess it really is true that your weight fluctuates every day lol. So that's pretty awesome! I've been relatively consistent with losing 2 pounds a week! Awesome! <BR> <BR> Did everyone have a good Friday?? <BR> <BR> Go Canada Go!!! We're #1 in gold medals right now!! Two golds, a silver AND a bronze today, yay!! <BR> <BR> The second half of the last period of today's hockey game what fre... Sat, 27 Feb 2010 00:32:29 EST Playing the game as best I can! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2927141 So I weighed in this morning and I'm only down a pound this week.. which is great and all.. but kinda sucks since I only maintained last week, didn't lose. x_x <BR> <BR> I forced myself to stay positive though! I KNOW I already feel better about myself! My legs are sore today 'cause I really pushed myself in the gym yesterday! <BR> <BR> I think the only thing that's making me really impatient is getting into the 160's! Just because I can't even remember the last time I was there. It was a l...

Today isn't any more exciting! <BR> <BR> Haven't really been up to much lately, just been working, exercising, spending time with the boyfriend and relaxing at home! <BR> <BR> Hope everyone's enjoying their week so far! More than half way done now! :D <BR> <BR> I have to work again this Saturday, so lame. D: <BR> <BR> I mayyy be going out tonight, depends on whether or not I hear back from my friend! Too bad the weather's crappy again. x_x <BR> <BR> This pi...
