13 in 13 Update

Well, as most of you know, I committed to the 13 in 13 challenge in the end of December, and I’m pretty determined to complete it. Starting it is a must too, so let’s work on that.

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


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


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™‚

50th Post! :)

hello my dear readers. before I begin, I would like to thank you all for following me and reading my rambles and rants. 50 posts down, an infinite number to go. πŸ™‚


Anyway, So September 12th. A while back, not really, but still.

Anyway, I woke up and some Honey Bunches of Oats cereal and some milk. Woot, then I went to school. At school, I went to class, had a quiz in math, got 1 wrong, poop, and then went to lunch. I had some yogurt, an apple, a sandwich, and some applesauce. Then, I went to gym. I did 9 miles on the bike in about 25 minutes. That was fun. I see muscles in my thighs!! πŸ™‚ Woot

Then, I had golf. I shot a 58. Not bad, not bad. I also had some trail mix. OHHHH! I only had one bad hole, and by bad I mean really bad. I shot a 9 on a par 3 after losing 3 golf balls in the water. Darn.

When I got home I had a pork chop, some applesauce and rice.

All in all it was a pretty boring day, or it may be the fact that it was like 5 days ago (ish) and yeh, I don’t remember it all that well. Oh, I got my old golfing partner back. Thank you coach!

I had a total 1500 calories.


Happy Shredding,

July 17th. Exercise is fun

Hey Everyone.

So, today was fun. I woke up at 7:30, my body is ready for some early morning running, but I’m not, yet.

Anyway, for breakfast, I had some oatmeal and some raspberries.

Later, IΒ  decided to cut up the watermelon my mom bought. We, as in my sister and I, ate half of that watermelon today. It was a pretty large one and that was basically my snack and lunch for the day.

Then, for dinner, I had a grilled chicken Caesar salad from Panera. I get that every time I go to Panera, and I want to try some of the other salads. Any suggestions? there are many with fewer calories and those are the ones I want to try. They look good, but I’m afraid thatΒ  they will not be on palette and I will have wasted a good $7 of my parents hard-earned cash. Whatever, then, as I was prepared to just call it a night, my friend texted me. She wanted to go to the YMCA with her. I reluctantly agreed and thank God that I did. I got there, put my stuff in the locker room, and did a mile on the elliptical. I needed to do that so bad. It was so amazing. All I could think of was Elle Woods from Legally Blonde and her saying, “I just don’t think that Brooke could’ve done this. Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.” The last part doesn’t really apply to me, other than the fact that I won’t kill my husband… anyway. It was so nice. Then, I did a mile on the treadmill and her mom and sister were ready to go. So, we left.

I felt like I could do anything after that workout.

I had a total of 1089 calories.

Before I leave tonight, may I say that these past two days have been absolutely amazing. A dream come true. These past 2 days are probably in the top 5 best days for me, behind of course, being born. πŸ™‚

Happy Shredding,

P.S. I have officially decided what I am going to do about the No Junk Food Challenge and 30 Day Shred. I will have up to 5 things of Junk Food this week, as planned, but nest week as well. I have inspired my friend to do the No Junk Food Challenge minus no chocolate and one other thing. We will begin on August 1st along with that, I will legitimately start the 30 day Shred. Then after I complete one No Junk Food Challenge, I will allow myself 4 junk foodish items the nest week, then start the challenge, then 3, etc until I stay at one per week and then finally to having no junk food in my diet at all. I could start tomorrow, but I am going on vacation next week and I don’t want to break any habit. Also, not the 30 day Shred, because I don’t want to put too much pressure on my knee at one time. I will go to the Y and bike and swim and then work it back up to its full potential. πŸ™‚
