Really... I am going to do this!

I have been absolutely horrible about using this blog. Two weeks ago I went to the gym twice... working my way up to the 4 times a week I am supposed to be going. Last week I did not go at all. I am not sure why I have been feeling so apathetic, but I am going to get over it today. I have two reasons that I need to watch what I eat and how much I exercise... 10 year high school reunion at the end of April... College reunion of sorts in San Diego, Memorial Day weekend. I am going to blog at least twice a week. I actually do need this in order to CONSISTANTLY do what I am supposed to! More later this week! J

Slacker! :(

I have been a total slacker for the last couple of weeks. I had to take a week off when I got my teeth pulled (to avoid dry sockets) and then I was sick. That was another week off. I did work out twice last week... but seriously two times is far from the five that I promised myself. I did go to the grocery store and buy "healthy" food... now the issue is going to be making it. This is a struggle every day. I have two and a half months to slim down another 10 pounds, and while that sounds like a small amount... trust me, my eating habots and busy schedule do not lend to the weight loss needed.
I do have two pieces of motivation, 10 year high school reunion at the end of April and a newly planned trip to San Diego in May/June to see an old college buddy. I am sure that I will be on the beach and my friend is a guy... I cannot fail now. So, I am going to suck it up and do what I know I should... Here is to a new beginning in the second month of the year.

Some time off...

Yes, I am back. I took some time off to get my wisdom teeth (plus 1) pulled. Actually that was yesterday so I am still a little sore and drugged. For that reason, I am going to make this short. I have not been working out regularly because I have had a lot to do. So I have out it on my calendar as an appointment. I will see if that is going to work this week. I must admit however that school starts this week and I have less energy because I can't eat... but no excuses. I am thinking Sunday- Thursday giving me Friday and Saturday off. I will change the days if it is necessary. We shall see.
I am going to get something to eat, take some more vicodin, and going back to la la land. I will bw blogging on Mondays, Thursday and Saturdays... also on the calendar... let's see if this works a little better! :)

New Year's Resolution- yuck!

I realize that it is only January 3. I do know that, BUT I dont feel like working out at all. I ate very well today. For breakfast I had a banana, coffee, one packet of maple and brown sugar oatmeal with almonds and dried cranberries and a whole wheat english muffin w/ peanut butter. For lunch I had brown rice, broccoli and salmon and for sinner I had fresh shrimp pad thai. Not bad for the girl who has just realized how big (small) a cup really is. I thought that I would starve but amazingly I was full all day.
That is not the problem. I just don't feel like working out. I drove pass the Y today and the parking lot was PACKED. I really don't want to work out with a room full of people. I think that I am going to have to change my sleep schedule and work out in the morning before work. As much as I appreciate sleep, it would be a little better for me since not many people are resolving to wake up and be at the gym at 5:30 in the morning. I think I am just coming up with excuses not to be there- either way I am going to have to figure out something. I am not going to get to my goal without working out, and I am not going to be happy if I spend another year being the size that I am. All around catch 22... I will come up with something.
Good news for the day: I registered for classes for my first semester of pursuing my MBA. Bad news for the day: once school starts on January 17 I am really going to be pressed for gym time!!My plan for what will be done for the gym time needed will be coming soon.

The start of something beautiful.

This "journey" begins today- January 1, 2006. With this blog I am going to track my progress as far as weight loss, financial budgeting and personal growth. This year will be the best year of my life- because I am going to make it that way. Let the journey begin.
