there went January

Well, good gracious, there went 1/12 of 2013 and I think I had what? maybe 4 posts? Darn. I am just going to sum up my month bulleting things of course because that’s what I do

  1. I didn’t do the 30 Day Shred. I lost my remote control on the first, didn’t find it until the 10th and said screw it, I’ll wait until basketball is over.
  2. Our turnabout dance is March 16th (girl asks the guy)
  3. I’m going to ask someone (hoping that nerves don’t kick in).
  4. I had my interview for the leadership program.
  5. I wasn’t accepted into the leadership program. I know why, I’ll get to that later.
  6. I witnessed something I have never before witnessed at a basketball game.
  7. I made a shot in my game yesterday.
  8. I played about half of the game yesterday.
  9. I went to Gibson’s for my dad’s birthday last night. The Filet Mignon is to die for.
  10. I want one of those crumb scrapers from Gibson’s
  11. I watched ‘Easy A’ for the first time today.
  12. I went to the first badminton open gym today.
  13. I created my yearbook’s title page. It’s pretty awesome.
  14. My hair smells really good today.
  15. People annoy me. πŸ™‚
  16. I really think that’s it, but just in case….. Oh, I didn’t eat too bad this month, I’ll weigh myself next weekend.
  17. Basketball ends on February 7th, 5 games and 6 practices. I’m not excited or anything.
  18. The end.

1. I didn’t do the 30 Day Shred. I lost my remote control on the first, didn’t find it until the 10th and said screw it, I’ll wait until basketball is over.

  • Well, in order to do the 30 Day Shred, you need the DVD remote. My dad lost the DVD remote and I wasn’t able to start the 30 Day Shred. I will start it when basketball finishes.

5. I wasn’t accepted into the leadership program. I know why, I’ll get to that later.

  • This is going to be difficult to explain but here we go.
  • Actually I’ll make a little table thing and post it.
  • If you take a look here, you will find that the first picked person is always blonde, for the boys the rest are all brunettes, and for the girls the two oldest grade have two blondes and this year doesn’t. Next year there will be one blonde girl again and then the next two years there will be two blonde girls, and the cycle repeats. i live in a blondist community and go to a blondist school…
  • Girls Picked #1 Picked #2 Alternate #1 Alternate #2
    Senior Blonde Brunette Blonde Brunette
    Junior Blonde Blonde Brunette Brunette
    Sophomore Blonde Brunette Brunette Brunette
    Boys Picked #1 Picked #2 Alternate #1 Alternate #2
    Senior Blonde Brunette Brunette Brunette
    Junior Blonde Brunette Brunette Brunette
    Sophomore Blonde Brunette Brunette Brunette

6. I witnessed something I have never before witnessed at a basketball game.

  • Basically last Saturday, we were at a pretty scummy school. Nut like racial, but there weren’t very sportsmanlike and they were talking smack and pulling our hair and stuff. WTF.
  • Anyway, about a minute or so before this happened, the ref told one girl that if anyone on white (the other team) said one more thing, it would be a technical foul. So, I fouled this girl, and she let out an annoyed moan because she thought the ref said she fouled, even though she didn’t. The ref have her a technical foul and I ended up shooting two free throws. I made the first one. Woot

10. I want one of those crumb scrapers from Gibson’s

13 in 13 January Post

Question of the month: If you could wake up tomorrow and have everything the way you wanted it to be what would it look like? Describe it to us.

This question was very troublesome. I love my life now. I have a roof over my head, a loving family, the body I never though was possible, great friends, I’m pretty smart, and I’m happy. Also, I have a newfound confidence after this summer of blogging and getting (somewhat) into shape. However, there are a few things that I would change or add about my life. For starters, I would be at my goal weight and more fit than I am now. I would be able to run an 8 minute mile. My family would be really proud of all I have accomplished and wanting me to continue, not telling me that I don’t need to lose anymore weight. I’d be able to cook. I’ve never really experimented with cooking and I would love to just create masterpieces out of the blue. My house would be clean, non cluttered, and I wouldn’t have to move things to sit down (not always, but when it happens, it’s annoying). I’d also be traveling. I want to go to Europe, and just experience new things. My goal is to have been to all continents (minus Antarctica, it would be fun but rather cold) by the time I die. And, I would have my license. I can’t get it for another 6 months but I still want the freedom, not that I’d be going many places by car, walking/running all the way! πŸ™‚

There we go, and along with my dream life, I have also been thinking about my 13 goals for 2013. I didn’t want them all to be weight goals, so they aren’t. I also didn’t want to have monthly goals, just 13 year-long goals, they’ll be completed whenever they are completed.

And, in no specific order:

  1. Complete the 30 Day Shred completely (hopefully to be completed this month)
  2. Be my goal weight which is losing 20 pounds (hopefully by May 24th 2013)
  3. Write a book.
  4. Make sure to drop weight and inches each month. I could honestly care less of how much, just some.
  5. Run a 5k
  6. Be able to run a 9 minute mile
  7. Get a jar, when something happens, write it down in the jar and at the end of the year look at all of them and reflect.
  8. Drink more water
  9. Cut out junk food
  10. Read. Read at least 20 books by the end of the year
  11. No excuses. This can get done, and it will, just no more
  12. Yet to be determined
  13. Yet to be determined.

There we have it, my 13 goals… err 11 for 2013. If you want to join me in the 13 in 13 challenge, join here.

Happy Shredding

Here’s to a New Year

Well, these past few days have been quite fun

  • I have committed myself to the 30 Day Shred, I will complete it this time, I know it,
  • This may end up being my January goal for 13 in 13
  • I put on three pounds…
  • I got a butt putt

Well, let’s begin,

I was at my grandpa’s house on Sunday for ChristmasΒ  with my dad’s side of the family. I didn’t eat much. For breakfast I had a yogurt and an apple. Oh, and a smoothie. And when we got there, I had some chips and salsa and a bit later, some pizza. I got 150 dollars from my grandpa, and aunts and uncles. Some socks from my cousins, and a ‘butt putt’ from my grandpa

Image

Yes. it’s for practicing my putting obviously, and when you make it in the hole, the butt farts. Yay for me. There are 6 different noises in case you guys were wondering, which you probably weren’t.

While I was there, I weighed myself. I have put on 3 lbs in the past two weeks, but it was later in the day, so not completely accurate. Whatever.

I have also decided to start the 30 Day Shred tomorrow. My January goal for the 13 in 13 will be to complete the 30 Day Shred, because, in all my attempts, I have yet to complete it. But that’s what new years are for.

Anyway, t-minus 3 hours and 18 minutes until 2013, so while I’m posting, I’ll talk about today

Well, Happy New Year’s Eve.

For starters, I woke up at 5:30. Why? Don’t ask me. Anyway, I, for some reason walked downstairs, covered myself with a blanket and fell back to sleep in my dad’s recliner. Which, I then awoke at 8, better, not great, but better. For breakfast, I had an apple and a cookie, not great, but it’s New Year’s Eve. I was thinking about starting the No Junk Food Challenge but maybe, continuing it fr longer than the 21 days, which I have only completed once. Oops. the last time, I woke up, thinking that the challenge was over on the 21st, not the 22nd. I’m terrible, I know. Whatever. I really want to cut junk food out of my life because I feel worse after I have eaten it. The happiness is only momentarily.

Any who, I then went to Target, didn’t buy anything, and then spent about 7 hours at my friend’s house. we had grilled cheese and tomato soup for lunch, with some barbeque Lays on the side. She was out-of-town for Christmas, and other than getting me a sweatshirt, she brought me back some pudding from a restaurant where she went. It’s like sitting on a chocolate cloud. πŸ™‚ So, we shared some of the pudding, and then we played Just Dance 4. I got it as a Christmas present and so did she, so we decided to play it. After that, we watched the Jane Russell and Jeanne Crain movie, Gentlemen Marry Brunettes. It was really good. And then, I went home.

We are having appetizers right now, anticipating the New Year. I can’t wait! Happy New Year every one!!! πŸ™‚

Happy Shredding

2012 in a Nut Shell

tumblr_lpqf7trR3x1qgz6q0o1_500

Well, here we go again. I haven’t posted in almost 20 days. I would like to say I’ve kept on track, but in all reality, I haven’t. Because my cyst appeared again, I was put of basketball, gym, and I had to rely on eating healthy to shed some weight. Which I did, but Christmas was three days ago and from the 22nd until yesterday, I kind of ate and ate. It wasn’t a lot of eating, just not healthy eating. I mentioned in my last post about how I was doing the No Junk Food Challenge, which I completed, and the Xmas squat challenge, which I stopped doing after day 5, because of long days, stress from finals, and I’m just a slacker. But, I am proud of what I have accomplished.

This year

  • I completed the No Junk Food Challenge 5 times
  • I got over my knee
  • I made 21 days on the 30 Day Shred
  • I got a B+ on my micro final
  • I lost 20 pounds since June (yep I’m at 160)
  • I have been eating healthy
  • I am enjoying exercise
  • I have created a blog
  • I have accumulated over 150 followers on this blog
  • I have written 81 posts
  • I have begun to like my body

I could go on, but I’ve realized that getting off track is easy, but getting back on track, while difficult, is a great decision. So, by this time next year, I hope to be on track, healthy, happy, and at my goal weight of 140 lbs or less. Let’s do it,

let’s take a look on these past 20 days

Well, I got back to playing basketball last Saturday, I played on Wednesday, we won. We lost on Thursday. Damn, We have another game today, wish us luck. πŸ™‚ I got all A’s in school minus micro with a B+, that’s okay. I have started seeing definition in my arms, I don’t know what from, but I like it. I got an ultra sound from my stomach last week and it seemed all good, so I went to the OBGYN and he put me on a birth control pill to “relax the ovaries.” That is all, ovary relaxing, nothing else. I got stuff for Christmas! Whoa, I know. I got a new camera. a camera case, I desk calendar, some Micro and Macro economics books, a sweater, a sweatshirt, money, pajamas, etc. It was a good Christmas, and on Sunday, I go to another Christmas party and I think tomorrow some of my friends and I are getting together and exchanging gifts then, so more to come. December, other than that, has been pretty boring, but that’s okay. My friend and I plan on going to the YMCA next week because we don’t have a lot of practices. So, that’ll be fun. That’s really all I have to say, So I talk to you all tonight or tomorrow. πŸ™‚

 

Happy Shredding

Today is a new day

Today is a new day. Β And soon it will be November, a new month. I have been very busy this whole month and I apologize for not posting since the first of this month. I said that October would be my month and at the beginning of every year I say it will be my year but who am I kidding? If I have one good month that won’t change me completely and the same goes for one bad month. I have to make my life my life and by doing so not harping on my mistakes but by commending on my achievements. I have to take my life one day at a time. Life is like a game of golf. You know what shot you just took and now it is the opportunity whether to seize the opportunity and aim for the green or just hold onto the past and end up in the trees. There will always be days when you are in the trees, some times weeks; but you can get onto the green, one shot at a time. Β So all of October I was pretty much in the trees, I was busy and so I didn’t post and so I got no comments from you readers which made me not motivated. I did the 30 day shred once and I stayed mostly on not eating over 1500 calories per day until his weekend. I don’t know what happened and quite frankly I don’t want to talk about it. I ate about 2000 calories one day and it wasn’t very healthy and that just led to more unhealthy choices and then it hit me, last night at about 10:30. I can change.Β  There are 30 weeks left until summer and I can get to m goal weight by then. I will get to my goal weight by then. I will ease my way into exercise as get back on track with my healthy eating habits. My new goal is to be 140 pound by May 24th, 2013. Which is the last day of school and 30 weeks from today. I can lose a pound a week and I will have the body I have always wanted. I believe I can and I will. Because this girl jut wants to be healthy.
