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 it). It's the thought that counts.
I WILL do it this time because I have a little dress that I would LOVE to fit into again. I have a formal dinner to go to in the middle of April and I can't afford a dress (again...poor college kid). I brought it back to my dorm with me and it is hanging on my closet door so I will be required to stare at it every day. I can do this. I WILL do this. I don't have a choice unless I want to wear a skin tight dress and look like a bimbo because it's too tight across my chest. Wonderful.
I was going to go to the gym tonight on my campus, however I realized that it is probably crazy crowded with college students that have new years resolutions/wanting to look good so they can be slutty during spring break. Also it was snowing and I didn't want to walk across campus and freeze to death. Therefore I did a Jillian Michaels kickboxing workout and it kicked my ass. Twenty minutes with Jillian Michaels yelling at me and telling me to kick an invisible person's face will make me sweat like I'm wearing ten sweaters in a sauna.
Also listening to 80's rock music is freakin awesome while you're kickboxing. It makes it a little more fun. Just a suggestion.
