I didn't think I'd actually use it. Yep.... I was wrong. That thing is taped to my mirror, and I rewrote it in HUGE letters. And I like colors, so there are colors. Here's a picture of my original goal sheet. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/3/l1377926819.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Some of the goals have changed, but generally speaking they're about the same. And some don't apply any more, like the bridesmaid ... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 21:00:45 EST 30 Day Shred http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5217883 So I've been working out pretty hard and been seriously counting calories. <BR> <BR> I FINALLY learned portion control and how to mange what I eat. Thank you to SparkPeople.com! <BR> <BR> I lost 30 pounds, but then Christmas happened.... It wasn't as bad as it could have been, but I still feel like I could have been more attentive to my meals and working out. <BR> <BR> However, my friend did the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and she looks fantastic! And she's kept up with it. And then m... Mon, 21 Jan 2013 23:40:58 EST Staying on Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5023279 After a weekend at home, the calorie counting kinda went out the window. Oops.... so I'm gonna get back on track. Classes start this week!! Woot! <BR> <BR> I have to make extra sure I stay on track here. I've got a wedding to get ready for <em>30</em> My best friend is getting married, and I'm the maid of honor. And with that status, I want to look good. Plus I'm going to try to keep the bride on track with fitness too. We'll be long distance fitness buddies. <BR> <BR> My frien... Mon, 20 Aug 2012 12:03:33 EST New Record!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5010978 Hi everyone!! <BR> <BR> So on top of doing Rugged Maniac, my friend and I have been running... ish. When we started we could barely go for a block without dying. Thursday, we went out for a jog with her dog, Maggie. It started to rain, and Maggie stopped. She was not a fan of the rain. <BR> <BR> Aside from Maggie refusing to move for a solid 5 minutes, we ended up jogging for 2 miles!! It's the farthest we've ever gone without stopping. We've been tracking out progress with the Map My ... Sat, 11 Aug 2012 13:46:20 EST Rugged Maniac http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5001796 Hi everyone!! <BR> <BR> So I've been working hard since my last post to get in shape for an obstacle course. I crawled under barbed wire, scaled barriers, trudged uphill, crawled through tunnels, and got covered in mud. <BR> <BR> Here's me and my brother finishing <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/3/l93919368.jpg"> <BR> <BR> It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done. But it was 100% worth it!! If you have the opportunity to do one of these... Sun, 5 Aug 2012 10:58:41 EST Getting Back in the Groove http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4712738 So, I haven't been as consistent as I wanted to be. But! My best friend is getting married and a bunch of my friends and I are going to sign up and do tough murder. I may die.... <BR> <BR> However, now with these specific goals in mind, it should be hard to get myself off track, and now I have an accessible support system. Woo! <BR> <BR> To top it all off, I joined and gym and got a personal trainer. Today, I'm so disappointed in myself, halfway through I got really faint and had to stop. ... Mon, 30 Jan 2012 16:50:27 EST What does this "Consistent" mean? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4514357 So... if you couldn't figure by the title, I'm having trouble being consistent. It doesn't help that my university thinks that I don't pay for my gym membership (which is included in my tuition). Still I'm half tempted to get a gym membership somewhere else, because the university is getting a little ridiculous (like not mailing me my diploma, I only got one reordered 3 months after emailing them and then finally marching in there and demanding a new one be ordered). So needless to say I'm ... Sat, 1 Oct 2011 22:35:06 EST Blaaaaaaahhhhh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4408029 After this whole summer of working pretty hard, I must say I feel a little disappointed. All that work and I only lost about 5 pounds. I thought I'd lose more. Don't get my wrong I'm not going to give up or anything (5 pounds is still better than nothing), but I'm a little disappointed. <BR> <BR> My parents and boyfriend say I look better, but secretly I don't believe them. I feel more energized and look forward to my quality exercise time, but I don't think I look any different. Regardl... Fri, 5 Aug 2011 00:09:05 EST Gah! The Power of the XBOX! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4331858 Today, I was energized and ready to go (at least as much as I can be when I wake up. I'm not the most active in the morning. I need time to turn on my batteries). I had my toast and yogurt, my morning snuggle with Bunbun, and was searching for something to do. <BR> <BR> Read? Nah, I did that yesterday. While I enjoy Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, I wasn't in a reading mood. <BR> <BR> Netflix? Nah, I do that everyday while I work out. Save the movies for later. <BR> <BR> Walk outside... Wed, 29 Jun 2011 23:51:44 EST So... The Final Harry Potter Movie is Coming Out Soon... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4329699 After having nothing new to say about what I've been doing, I thought I would share a little bit about quidditch. Seeing as the final Harry Potter movie is coming out soon, so to celebrate, you may want to get your friends together and play. <BR> <BR> -Equipment- <BR> <BR> 1. Brooms - you'll need enough for 7 people per team, so 14 total (normal size brooms hurt, so using toy brooms will work better). <BR> <BR> 2. Hoops - 3 per side, if you can't make them vary in height that's ok for sta... Wed, 29 Jun 2011 01:08:26 EST The Lessons Learned in One Day... Amazing Isn't It? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4319139 First off, a HUGE thank you to the comments on my last entry. Before I skipped off to work today, I saw them, read them, and was absolutely elated. So thank you to making my day start off really great. <BR> <BR> Also, I think Katy Perry deserves to be mentioned as well. Upon realizing that I had forgotten part of my work uniform while driving to work, the song Firework came on the radio. <link>www.youtube.com/watch?v=QGJuMBdaqIw </link> <BR> <BR> Not only is that one of my most favorit... Fri, 24 Jun 2011 00:11:58 EST Mom Saves the Day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4316886 Let me preface this by saying I have never written a blog post before. The only thing I have posted on the internet is my Facebook status, and even then maybe 15 people read those. So here goes. <BR> <BR> I thought first I would introduce myself. <BR> <BR> Hello SparkPeople! I'm Marianne. I'm 21 and... that's about it. I'm going to study to be a paralegal starting in the fall, and have a pet bunny named Bunbun. I also stopped playing volleyball to play Quidditch. Yes, the game from Ha...
