May 10th.

Well, today is May 10th, and a lot of stuff happened and I haven’t talked about it, Anywho,

  • I’m on level 2 of the 30DS, today is day 16, I believe.
  • School is done in exactly 2 weeks. YAY!
  • The ship date for the yearbook is tomorrow.
  • Distribution is Next Thursday and Saturday.
  • AP Test is Thursday…. I’m nervous
  • My birthday is in a month and two days. AHHH 16!
  • I’m going out to dinner con las amigas tonight.
  • I need a new belt, it’s huge
  • Jillian Michaels is a serious ass-whooper. Level 2 is still killing me and today was day 5.

That’s my news,

Day 17- Do you have an eating disorder?

No. I don’t. But I hate people who make fun of those with eating disorders. It is a mental illness, nothing under their control. That’s why “Just eat a burger” doesn’t work.

The gods are not on my side.

Well. It seems as if every time I really get on track and make it far with the 30 Day Shred, something has to come in he way of my plans. In my last post, I mentioned my stomach bothering me and how I may or may not be lactose intolerant but let’s not talk about that, So, I had food poisoning, and then I missed three days of the 30DS even though I said they would happen. I figured I should not risk feeling sick for more days and when you can’t stand up without writhing in pain, something’s not right. We think I had food poisoning, but I don’t know. It wasn’t related to my cyst from my hospital visit in July, everyone though I was, but I’m sure it wasn’t… different pain in different places.

I really think that the workout ‘gods’ don’t ever wantย  me to complete the 30 day Shred. Why? Everytime I get far, like one week or more, something happens and I have to restart. I only missed three days so I started last Thursday and I will complete it (or so we hope) by May 24th, my last day of school. I’m on day 9 already, which by stating this, makes me realize how long ago, I made my lastย  post., Darn, Anyway, I’ll just pick up with the day I left off on for the 30 Days of weight loss challenge and I will be starting a new squat challenge tomorrow, I’m leaving for a party that gets over at 10:30 in about 5 minutes so I’ll start it tomorrow. My knee hasn’t been bugging me so I will try to finish the challenge. Woot.

Day 16- when did you first decide to lose weight?

Well, after 8th grade graduation. When a size 16 dress was snug and almost didn’t fit, after my doctor told me that my weight had skyrocketed. when I looked at pictures and my sister could barely wrap her arms around me, after I missed a day of school to avoid running, after I lost control of my weight and my eating habits, after my mom told me to ‘stop eating’ at a party, before I became me.


Well, you haven’t missed much in these past two weeks. I won junior class president. That’s really it. Yesterday was bring your child to work day at my school and on Thursday, we watched a birthing video in health. Children are adorable but having children doesn’t seem to fun. Anyway, I went to the cubs game yesterday with my mom, I ditched school, but whatever. It poured and poured but we stayed the whole game and the Cubs ended up losing by 1. IT happens. We were about six rows behind home plate. The tickets were amazing.

And that’s about it.

April Challenges 11, 12, and 13

Screen shot 2013-04-19 at 2.25.03 PM

Today i reached 200 followers so thank you all so much for reading!

I’m keeping up with the 30 Day Shred, I’m starting Level 2 tomorrow! Yay!

So, I would have posted yesterday or Thursday, had i not been worrying about the sink whole 10 miles from my house, the basement and part of my first floor of our school flooding, our new ‘skylight’ at my school, the railings at my school being squishy, having to take a different route to a stairwell being closed, and having one leak almost over my locker that made the ceiling about 5 inches lower than it should have been.

Feel free to take a look at all the pictures that were taken in my neighborhood. My aunt had flooding p to the ceiling of her basement, and many people had to evacuate their houses. It’s quite sad.

Anywho, that didn’t stop me from working out, and starting Level 2 of the 30DS today. I think I will start the 30 days squat challenge again today, Yay.

Day 11: “Favorite thinspo blog and why? I love because it talks about really common people have while losing weight and I can relate 95% of the time.

Day 12: What do you normally eat? weekdays I have three hard boiled eggs, and a banana or yogurt for breakfast. Lunch- apple, banana, yogurt, applesauce, granola/protein bar, something else of my choice. Dinner: it’s never really the same

Day 13: Are you losing weight the healthy or unhealthy way? I workout, eat right, eat enough, I’m assuming that’s healthy

Today is a new day

Today is a new day. ย 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. ย 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.ย  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.

Friday September 21st

Hello my readers. Friday was fun.

I woke up at 5:30 ish and had some toast. Love the new toaster. ๐Ÿ™‚ Then I went to school. Whoa, so I have a Math test on Monday, which I probably should be studying for but I wanted to write, so I am writing. ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s really all that’s going on in my morning classes. Except for the fact that my Spanish teacher is treating everyone in my class like we are 2nd graders. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but I comprehend Spanish much better than everyone else, and last year, we went at a pace that I was comfortable with, not now. we spend our class periods drawing and working on one packet instead of applying what we learn. It erks me. But, anyhow, then came lunch. I went and worked on my TV project again and I had to redo all of what I had done the day before. But, it’s all right.

For lunch, I had a sandwich, some applesauce, some grapes and a yogurt. I then went to all of my after noon classes and I was baffled when I got to Chemistry and my teacher attempted to explain our lab to us. He isn’t a good explainer… Anyway, we also took a quiz on 48 of the 114 elements. I got a 100%. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am smart. :). After school, we just had a golf meeting because we had played ‘so much’ golf in the past week, not really, but okay. After that, I went to my economics class to get help on the test we had just taken a few days before. I got a 74% on that test and that isn’t really a score I can live with, so I went and did all of my test corrections and boosted it up to an 84%. Thank god. I was going home with my friend whose sister teaches at my school but as we walked outside, none other than my dad was parked out front. I was quite puzzled as to why he had gotten off work early but I went home with him, obviously. I got home and did some homework and had some cashews. I didn’t do homework, but I did have cashews. I was going to go to my football game but it was raining and gross so I didn’t. For dinner I had some pizza. oh and in gym calls we did yoga, it’s quite relaxing.

I had a total of 1550 calories.

September 14th

Friday! I love Friday. what a fun time.

But, not when you get up at 5:30 and don’t have to be at school until 7:30, but whatever. I feel like getting up earlier makes me happier later in the day. Anyway, for breakfast I had some cereal, what fun, and a lemonade vitamin water Zero.

Then, I went to school. During Spanish (2nd period), kids sign up to bring treats on Fridays. Today, we had this Mexican sweet bread, quite good, quite good.

Then, not really relevant, but I completed my first interview for the yearbook. Went well, if i do say so myself. Then, I had my math test,ย  I got 1.5 wrong. Poop. Well, that’s okay. Still an A.

After math, i went to lunch. I had a turkey and cheese sandwich, an apple, a plum, and some applesauce.

Then, I had gym and we did yoga, and then, I finished my school day. I then had golf practice, which I learned how to hit a golf ball. Shocker right!? well, yes. My coach kept saying he was jesus because he perfected my golf swing. Hopefully it stick with me during my matches on Tuesday, Wednesday, ad Thursday. when I got home, I did some of my homework (I should be finishing it now, but I decided to blog instead) and had some cheese and crackers.

A while later, I did the 30 day Shred. Refreshing. I then had some applesauce, and went to bed.

Iย  had a total of 1450 calories.

Happy Shredding,
