There is nothing sexier than a muscular man in sweaty work out clothes.
5am alarm. Didn’t get up until 6am. Still managed to shower, get ready, pack all my stuff for school, and grab breakfast :) Today will be good :)
That’s a big gain, but I’m ready to get back in the swing of things. There’s been a lot of stuff happening (which isn’t an excuse), and I’m ready to forget about it all and focus on myself. Weekly Goals: •count calories. •eat breakfast everyday. •gym five days this week. Simple, but the basics are necessary at this point.
Enough is enough.
I did a lot of thinking this weekend. I have come to the conclusion that I need to start caring. I need to care about myself. Caring about my appearance, but only from my own point of view. Caring how I treat my body. Caring about what I am putting into my body. Caring about my morals. I haven’t been caring. I’ve just been walking through the motions of life, not really making it...
Tumblr Weekend Hiatus
I am going to use this weekend to charge my batteries and not worry about everything. That means no Internet. Just focusing on myself. I’ll be back Monday morning :) Have a great weekend everyone!
I need a break from life.
The BBQ chicken salad from Panera makes my tummy oh so happy :)
Bathing suits came in the mail! They are so freaking cute. Can’t wait to show them off this summer.
I just gotta say, I freaking hate seeing people hold onto the treadmill handles when they’re on it. I don’t even know why it bothers me, since it in no way affects me, but it drives me nuts. And it seems like the majority of people do it, too; whether they’re walking or running. I don’t even understand how you can hold it while running. Personally, it makes me feel so off...
I’m game! :)
I was going to weight myself this morning, simply because I was curious. But I didn’t. Because I don’t care. I know I’m still up a bit, but it doesn’t matter. I feel good. Last night when I was getting ready to see D, I looked in the mirror and actually looked cute. Weight is only one factor of the equation. I know that I am still overweight and still have fat to lose,...
Totally didn’t eat enough today. I only had an apple with almond butter, the tortilla thing I posted, and a little carton of chocolate milk. It definitely wasn’t on purpose and I’ll try to make up for it tomorrow. I also went to the gym today. 36 minutes on the treadmill and 20 on the bike. The D thing went okay. I am still a little confused, but it’s my fault for not...
Wearing running tights to the gym. It’s rainy and cold. And I don’t give a shit. Also, I’m seeing D tonight. We’re gonna go for a walk and talk. We’ll see what happens though.
The Spartan Warrior: Challenges →
thespartanwarrior: In each challenge is great opportunity. So step forward, meet the challenge, work persistently through it, and make the opportunity yours. It’s difficult, complicated, inconvenient, and demanding. And you are wonderfully able to deal with all that, to create a valuable outcome. There are plenty… ‘In each challenge is a great opportunity.’ This exact...
D texted me earlier and we’ve been chatting. I have been thinking about him lately, but mostly because I’ve been lonely. This should be interesting.
I seriously suggest checking out Victoria Secret for bathing suit sales! I just bought a bikini top and two bottoms for 26 bucks! Motivation!
The only thing worthwhile about this night time accounting class is the very attractive man who looks like a young Gerard Butler.
7:30am class. 41 degrees outside. Boring teacher who has talked about his life the last three classes. No breakfast, but I do have amazing coffee I made at home. Also, yesterday sucked. I ate too much later on in the night and had no motivation to go to the gym once my friend bailed on me. But I will go today after my class at 1pm.
When I went swimming with my friend the other day, her mom and brother were there too. We got to talking about the gym at school, and what they offer. We have a fitness center, which is where all the cardio equipment is and then a circuit of weight machines. There is also a weight room, which is all free weights. During the orientation, the instructor told us that women rarely go in there. I...
To Do List for the Day:
•Work: hopefully done by noon. •Lunch and errands with my mother. •All the homework (Italian assignment, flash cards, accounting assignment) •Make my notes legible so I will be able to read them later in the semester. •Gym. •Get everything ready for class tomorrow (snacks, gym bag). •Tidy my room for the millionth time. Ready. Set. Go!
Breakfast: Sourdough toast with almond butter and a third of a banana. During Class: Cashews and Kashi crackers. After Class: Grapes and carrots. Lunch/Snack: Chicken quesadilla on a Trader Joe’s corn & wheat tortilla. After Gym: String cheese. Mango peach coconut water. Dinner: Chicken wrap with spinach. Toasted crackers. Water: 3 liters. Overall, I’m pleased. I ate a lot of...
I think I am going to start posting my intake nightly, mostly for myself. I want some sort of accountability to myself, and all of you. I also don’t want to count calories again because I get to obsessed with the numbers. Breakfast: None. I didn’t have time and didn’t get back until 1ish. Lunch: Chicken panini on sourdough with mustard and spinach. Toasted crackers. Snack: An...
Instead of running tonight, I’m going swimming with my friend. Only in California can we go to an outdoor pool in the middle of January :) I’m not too excited about being in a bathing suit in public, especially after eating like crap for so long, but I’m glad to get some varied activity in. Also, my eating is going great today!
One liter of water down before 11am! That is how I know today is going to be good. I already did my work this morning, so the rest of the day will be devoted to cleaning, homework, and possibly Trader Joe’s to get a few things I forgot this weekend. I’m also going to prep everything today, even snacks, so I have no excuses. If my sinus pressure/runny nose becomes less...
Even thought I haven’t been feeling too great about my body, I needed new workout pants. Shopping probably wasn’t the best idea, but I got some great deals! I got a pair of Nike Pro Combat compression shorts. And Fila running capris. Also, eating is going well today do far :)
I woke up and actually weighed myself this morning. I haven’t been weighing myself regularly for at least a month, just a few times when I’ve been curious. The number I saw this morning was a number I never wanted to see again. But I wasn’t surprised given the way I’ve been eating. I was 190.2. I haven’t weighed that much in a year. I need to stop this. My...
There is a super attractive man that works at the Trader Joe’s near my house. I’ve never noticed him until today, but since the store is small, I saw him like five times today when I went. We made eye contact every time, and I smiled. But did I say anything? No, because why would I do a logical thing like that.
I’m afraid for the races I’ve signed up for later on in the year. Not really the half marathon, because I could probably bust that out now, moreso the full marathon in June. 26.2 miles is a pretty hefty distance (not that I have to tell you guys that). I’ve contemplated downgrading to the half, but I feel like I’d let myself, and everyone else, down. And I can’t do...
I went to the gym!
I didn’t time anything, but I was only there for like 15 minutes. The treadmills were taken, so I started on a spin bike and then moved on to the elliptical. I hate the elliptical, so that was short lived. Once the treadmill opened up, I set it to 5.5 and went at that speed for a quarter mile. Then I accidentally pressed the stop button. I turned it on again, at 5.5 and ran. I bumped it up...
I had my orientation for the gym tonight. We were pretty much just shown around the cardio center and the weight room. I’m going tomorrow after my class and will hopefully bust out three miles on the treadmill and do the weight circuit they have. Time to get my shit together!
Literally five minutes after I read lowcaloriemolly’s post about the bikini challenge, I got my package from Victoria Secret that had my bathing suit top. I tried it on, and it’s confortable, but makes me look like I have no breasts. Which I barely do, but I guess you can’t win ‘em all :P Excited for the summer :)
Drinking my second cup of coffee while listening to my mother get frustrated with her iPad’s autocorrect. Entertaining start to my morning :)
I just ate two zucchinis and a whole bag of frozen broccoli. Topped with marinara and parm. Someone posted a similar thing last night, and it gave me this idea. So whoever it was, thank you :)
