11:56am: April Showers....bring...
extreme weight loss? hahaha jk jk MAY FLOWERS! lol But i think it's time to go back to the numbers....no running away anymore...although I'm still in a really good workout routine.....i guess this year has been different in that way...it's been so easy to just go to the gym and work out for a couple hours...and I have dropped 7lb since December so at least I can be happy in that. I AM starting Insanity next Thursday and I am doing the whole 2 months of the program...I want to look really good for graduation...bc believe it or not folks on June 11th I will be a college GRADUATE ....no more school for me! yayyyy and by June 11th I think I'll only have 1 or 2 workouts left so at graduation I'll be able to celebrate that too.... here is my weight update and my plan

April 9th~ 170.5lb

May 1st Goal~ 166lb

and before I get into my "plan" this is my thinking....I only am taking two classes and working thnis quarter....so i do have loads of free time and since it is my last quarter I'm going to try to eat healthier but I'm not going to be super strict....if I plan to eat more I'm just going to work out harder and just hope that every week (at least during insanity) i'm dropping at least 1 or 2 pounds


Monday- Insanity, Kickboxing, hardCORE

Tuesday- day off

Wednesday- Insanity & swim

Thursday- Insanity & cardio dance class

Friday- Insanity & cardio dance class

Saturday- Insanity & either swim or spend an extra hour at the gym either running or on the eliptical

Sunday- Insanity & either swim or spend an extra hour at the gym either running or on the eliptical


Hopefully with the weather getting warmer I'll be able to take more walks/runs outside....and my friend Carly loves to swim and I know swimming would feel so good after insanity....so we'll see in a month how this is holding up lol

2:59pm: Beginning of March :)
February was good....not as good as I wanted though....I didn't hit my weight loss goal....but I'm still at a 7lb loss since Jan 1 so I'm trying to be super happy about that. I wanted to lose 11lb in 11 weeks....but I'm still 4lb away and I have about a week and a half left :-/ It is really hard to eat the way I want being in college....I want to go out with my friends and not feel guilty about a few beers and a slice of pizza but i always feel guilty....I'm trying to spend 2 hours in the gym most days... hoping at least I can battle my eating habits that way lol. I think that's why I haven't really gained much since January, I've been reallllyyy good with my workouts. I go to zumba twice a week (it's a fun, upbeat latin dance class) and kickboxing once a week....and the rest of the time I balance cardio with weight training. I can run a mile with complete ease....working my way up to 4-5 miles....then maybe I'll be able to start another round of insanity....trying soooo hard to be as CLOSE to 150lb as possible by June 11th....but i still feel so far away :-/ I think it's time to schedule my cheat days and healthy eating days....so that i only cheat a couple times a week....ugh....wish eating healthy wasn't a part of losing weight hahahaaha i can pretty much tackle working out on a regular basis lol.....

hopefully I can give you guys a weight update at the end of this month!!

4:55pm: January=success
I'll try to remember to update on the first or second to confirm this....BUT I think the rapid weight-loss has started (only took pretty much a month to kick in! haha!)...and I'm pretty sure I surpassed my 5lb goal for the month....although this weekend we have 3 guests at our apartment....and them wanting to eat out/drink and such has spoiled my eating plans kinda(pizza & brownies= christina death lol)....but I've still managed to go to the gym and workout....so I'm hoping beasting it out in the gym tomorrow and getting back to eating good all day tomorrow and monday will keep the weight off!.....i'm so excited tho! Funny how seeing those numbers change on the scale can keep your motivation and strength at such a high level! lol.....but i think this is mostly thanks to all the cardio i do at the gym<3 i love you bikes, treadmill and elipticals lol..... don't think I have much to update other than that...bc obviously being healthy/losing weight thing is going well....school is going well....and life in general is going VERY WELL....it's amazing what losing a best friend can actually do lol

4:33pm: Everything's going well
first of all i loveeeee britney's new song.....but that should come as no surprise since everyone who knows me knows I'm a huge Britney fan....have been since I was in 6th grade when Baby One More Time premiered on TRL on MTV lol....

but anyways....everything is going well...still have been good about working out 5-6 days a week...although I think I need to up my cardio regimen bc I'm not losing weight as fast as I want (I've only had 3 really good cardio workouts this whole entire month)....my goal for january was -5lb and i'm only at -2lb :( so this week i need to lose 3lb....you'd think having a goal of just -5lb in one month would be easy....not for me i guess...grrrr...but I finally have $ to go grocery shoppin with so I'm going to get a bunch of veggies and fruits and try to lay off the bread as much as possible until february.... i like bread so much i'll eat like a slice for a snack....lol and i had quite a bit of fried food this weekend....so...yea...I've never kept a food journal in my life but maybe I need to start.... :-/

Yesterday I was so proud of myself though! I spent 40 min on a treadmill and burnt like over 300 calories between running and walking....and i ran a mile at a 5.2 speed....well i did it a half mile at a time....which is one reason I know i'm super out of shape...but hey...i'm workin on it I guess....running felt so good though....i've always wanted to be a runner....but I've been self-conscious and have never been that fit to just go outside and run like 4 or 5 miles at a time...that's one "new years resolution" so when I move to California if I wanna run along the beach in the morning with my future doggy lol....i can :)

I guess that's all for now....but if I make that -3lb goal by february there will def be a weight update soon! Hope everyone else is doing well.

7:41pm: Back 2 School
Well I'm not confident enough for a weight update....but personally and physically I've been doing a great job! for the past 2-3 weeks I've managed to workout 5-6 days a week...I can tell you I've already lost a couple pounds just coming back to school :) This quarter is going to be amazing...I love my schedule and love my classes....I really think this is the year for me.....I feel a lot of changes (and GOOD changes at that) happening in my life....I feel more confident and more outgoing...and in turn that's lead me to be healthier....yesterday i had a horrible headache...but i worked out anyway....and i don't think i've EVER done that before! lol I'm queen of the excuses....i mean anybody who reads this regularly might've gotten that gist(spelling?) anyway lol....however i did start off this year at the heaviest I've ever remember being :-/....which is why I haven't posted any # updates....but I am getting myself back on track....and life is looking pretty good right about now...I hope everyone else is finding some success through the first month of this new year!

1:57am: Things are still good
Nothing really to update on I guess just felt like getting my thoughts out again....I'm trying to stick to an exercise regimen....eating never goes as planned so i just "gave up" for the time being...holidays...and meeting friends and family at restaurants is just too tempting right now...but i know i eat better in athens...i'm such a weird college kid lol...my mom mentioned to me earlier how this break and for awhile now she's seen a new me kind of arise....i don't get mad as often...i'm laughing more and genuinely look like i'm having a good time with what ever my family or my friends and i seem to be doing at the time....and i feel those changes....I really think this is the time where i've stopped throwing myself a pity party and want to strive towards completing my goals for me....because it makes me feel good...and I've realized my old habits didn't get me anywhere in life...i was always on edge and upset about friends, family, my weight....and i want so many things and i am going to get them :) and I am going to be in control of what i can be in control of :)

2011 is going to be my year....hope everyone else is doing well

2:25am: Wow it's been over a month
Sorry I haven't updated lately....it's not like I haven't had time...break has been kinda chill...which i lovveee....it has given me a perfect opportunity to reevaluate my priorities, spend time with my family and get refreshed and rejuvenated before my last 6 months of college start. Right now I'm feeling so confident and excited about my life....my life right now and my future life. I let my past have a death grip on me sometimes.....and the month of November really opened my eyes to how unhealthy that really is...if I don't come to terms with the feelings I've felt, the things I've experienced, and the bad decisions I've made....it will only drag me down....yes I'm going to have bad days...I'm gonna feel like breaking down and crying....but to have a bad day turn into a bad week....then that bad week turning into a bad month and so on is unacceptable....I deserve a long and happy life and (excuse my language) damnit if I let the worst get the better of me and let that slip away.....in high school...i was merely just confused and uneducated and I couldn't really stop that from taking things away from me.....but college...i should've known better...i was bound to go down "the wrong path"....and when i say this I just mean get close to the wrong people....not do good in classes.....take things for granted....fight with family (also me being a little overweight...not eating right and not working out definitely played into all of this)....normal things we all "get wrong" sometimes...but I let my bad attitude about those things take away from the quality of years I had....or most of them at least...I'm not letting it take over my last 6 months! i can assure you that....I am gonna battle my weight as best I can...I am going to go out...let my hair down and have crazy nights with friends...I'm also going to spend ample time studying and cleaning so I'm not freaking out at the end of the day....I'm gonna work hard at the market...I'm gonna live every moment like it's my last.....I wanna graduate and be able to think to myself..."I wouldn't change a thing and I loved every single moment of it!"....and if every low point in my life will bring me to that ^ because I had to get to this point to realize how much time I was actually wasting....so that I can have more life in my years and be better prepared for my new life in California come summer...then so be it!

well glad I got that out....lol makes me feel even better than I did before I wrote all that....on another note dieting and exercising is going well....holidays definitely has put a little damper on things.....but a week or so ago I sat down and wrote out a "plan of action" for my weight loss goals...and this week I'm gonna sit down and write out a whole bunch of goals....big ones and small ones...to ensure my motivation and dedication stay in place...i've been doing a marie clare workout, yoga, and a hot body boot camp dvd that i bought awhile ago....and let me tell you...I'm sore....so even though I don't feel like I'm "losing" a lot....I know the weight training and stretching is important to becoming toned and fit...so I'm trying not to put all of my goals in the "pounds department"...bc I do wanna be healthy in all aspects.....so I am going to try to be more strict with writing in here at least once a week....and maybe have more entries like this one....but I will for sure be writing again once I know for sure I have accomplished my first mini goal :)

8:01pm: Lovely time of the quarter
(time for a more personal, less weight/exercise talk kind of post) Usually I would be running around like a chicken with my head cut off....bc it's that time again in my college career....FINALS....lol class is over....one project, 2 finals a week from today and 1 next friday....but as you can see my schedule for finals is alot more open than usual....mostly bc i'm very close to graduating so i'm taking less classes than normal. I think I've finally wrapped my head around my current life....i'm in a really good place....yes i've had a few crying sessions this quarter....but I'm feeling really positive right now....i'm really excited to go back to my hometown for 6 weeks....all due to my amazing family & 3 best friends from high school who are back at home....my mom is allowing me not to work....at 23 years old...i really shouldn't have to ask during my winter break not to work....i just should....but...i'm in dire need of a break i've been taking classes since JANUARY and i didn't work over the summer....but i want some me time....and def want more family time....bc come june of 2011 i'll be living in california and a million miles (or so it seems) ....so i'm trying to justify to myself that 6 weeks without a paycheck is okay.....lol.....

but i've finally wrapped my head around the eating healthy thing....pizza....chocolate....and other things only in moderation.....i do feel myself feeling more confident....i'm trying to get back in the swing of working out 6 days a week....the last month or so i've been pretty good at working out 5-7 days a week.....the next thing is making some me time at the end of every day to either write songs or read....or whatever i feel like doing.....maybe writing in this thing most nights.....

I think if i do this i can stay on the right track...bc what sucks is i feel like when one of those goes off track....everything falls off the track and i just feel lost....then weight starts piling back on...i put off school work....and i feel like i take 844905834299 steps backwards....so for break and for next quarter i need to come up with a plan and stick to it....

well i'm really not sure why exactly i wrote this lol but I feel better writing all of that down......cheers to living happy lives and staying on a positive track......leaving the negative energy and bad lbs behind!! lol

3:15pm: AHHH stress!
Well I have been really good about working out 5-6 days a week. I have one week of insanity down and the week before that I was swimming and doing a lot of stuff on my wii fit....eating has been so so....this past weekend was my birthday and I've been fighting with my best friend....so losing weight has been hard between stress and just plain not wanting to eat as healthy as I should....so I've gained :-/.....i'm really trying not to get down on myself bc I know that will just make the stress worse.....so I guess I'm just going to be making a list of things that I know will make me feel better about life and trying to do them...and for pete's sake i'm gonna keep working out! i'm actually reallllllyy sore today.....my thighs are still burning from pure cardio last night lol.....i'm still gonna work towards losing at least 10lb with each month of insanity....and i'm still gonna work towards 2 hours of working out most days of the week....i haven't been sweating as much as i have before doing insanity....which just tells me i am realllly unfit and can't push myself as hard as i could when i was 10lb lighter :(....but i can only go up from here right? :)

10:58pm: Haven't updated in a month!
Long time no update I know!! School is definitely keeping me busy BUT lately i've made a huge effort to stay on top of homework, projects, and studying so that I can fit in exercise 6 days a week and not feel guilty about it! I haven't lost or gained since the last time I've checked in...so at least I've stayed on top of it enough not to gain! I'm staying out of the 170s foreverrrrr :) starting insanity over again.....wow i feel like everytime i update this thing i repeat myself :-/....ughh life's hard...but i'm gonna work hard to overcome the stress and chaos of college and do something for myself...that I've needed to do ever since I was 13. The Biggest Loser really helped tonight....the one lady that got eliminated was saying how all you need to do is just make that decision for yourself and you need to just start living and enjoying life (i forget what exactly she said) and it just resonated with me. I am going to try to workout 2 hours everyday (mostly bc with insanity i need to really boost my fitness level to drop the weight i want and just SURVIVE the workout lol) but that'll probably only be for the first month bc if I can push myself really hard during the 2nd month being more fit -dropping weight shouldn't be a problem :) Cheers to really changing THIS TIME :)

Well I'm pretty much back to normal.......haven't been eating that well or working out.....but something is going good bc i'm back to 168lb!!!!!!! and I could not be happier about being out of the 170s......going to make a promise to myself to never go back there again!!! but tomorrow i'm seriously getting back on the wagon.....back to insanity and working out 6 days a week....and back to watching what i eat.....unhealthy things only in moderation!!

Well hopefully you guys won't laugh.....no I didn't fall of the wagon only one week into insanity lol....I probably did have a good loss this week but it's not a healthy loss....i woke up with a fever saturday morning and was pretty sick until right now pretty much....i'm not one to lose their appetite even when they're sick but this fever def made me lose my appetite....and obviously if i'm sick and not eating i can't be doing insanity....so I'm not weighing myself this week. Ughh hate when this stuff happens....and i don't want to put a gain up there next week lol so that's why i'm going to pass on the weighing aspect....::grumble:: and i was doing soooo well too.....guess tomorrow I'm going to have to jump right back in it!

it just talks about your struggle isn't really about food or working out, it's finding that self acceptance and love for yourself to want and do better....i know that is what my problem is...I have a lot of self confidence and self esteem issues that constantly makes me put other people ahead of myself and I need to put ME first always...bc not losing the weight lets ME down and I'd never wanna let other people down so why let myself down? I need to be a priority too!

I'm going to work so hard these last two weeks of august! lol

I haven't been doing Insanity but I have been trying to workout regularly....I think I've gained a lot because of my eating habits...I put off grocery shopping knowing that the last two weekends in July I was going home
so working out didn't seem to help the cause. I'm starting Insanity for the 3rd time in a row :-/ UGH... TODAY!! and I'm swimming..I thought 168 was the worst number to see....now I just want to be in the 160s again.... :( I'm having such a hard time losing this weight but I feel very motivated to take insanity seriously and do my workouts outside of insanity like running, swimming and working out on the eliptical....I'll update you all in a week

So....I'm going to start insanity today....it was supposed to be yesterday but the first day is just a fit test and carly and I have already done 2...so we know where are starting points truly were so we decided to skip the fit test yesterday and do a workout of our choice. So everything is going good

yes I had a dramatic 5lb loss this week!! finals week and break week I was horrible with my eating and didn't work out at all...so working out regularly and getting back to eating healthier really did some good! Right now I'm just trying to average 3lb a week... so maybe next week I'll hit 166.5(then I'll be almost back to where I was in october lol ugh... lol)! My goal is to be as close to 140lb as possible by September! I think I can do it! and can i just say I LOVVEEEE SUMMMERRRR

Is it really JUNE of 2010 already?? ahhh the 6 month mark...how do years go by so fast? this is quite scary... but good news.... I keep losing weight! :) I've been doing really good with everything....I know sometimes the eating doesn't go as planned...BUT i'm making a vow to myself that working out is a must 6 days a week...and no matter what i'm doing SOMETHING 6 days a week....while doing insanity and the days after insanity...i need to get a grip on getting my butt off the couch and out of my bed no matter how tired i am....I think that is the key to me losing weight bc in the past year or so I've been improving so much with eating more salads and veggies and being able to say no to fatty desserts when I need to....just gonna keep on pushing! and btw...insanity sucks LOL...okay no it doesn't....it just kicks your butt and if any workout has the ability to make someone break down in tears that would be the workout lol

4:47pm: End of May Update
Life Update:
I decided to stay in school for two more quarters. I was really stressing about really not knowing what I should know going into the music business....so I added a business minor to complete my education....so bummer that there's more school in my future...but by November 2010 I will be graduated :) with that said

Weight Update:

I did start Insanity! Week 1 went very well. It's so hard....but I'm going to try to work my butt off to lose more weight this time. I've been eating VERY well for the past 9 days or so! I'm really proud of myself. However I only lose .5lb in the first week...which I was hoping for 3 or 4lb....so I decided when this happens (basically if I lose less than 2lb)...I change it up...sooo

Calorie Intake: 1750 (I've been taking in around 2000 a day bc with what I weigh and doing insanity that's what their book told me to consume)

and running for 30 min also everyday I do Insanity (of course not back to back and if I feel really hungry I'll increase my calories)

with summer quarter coming up this will be very easy to do with only taking 3 classes.

I'm weighing myself every week now for this reason...but I'm still weighing myself on the first of the month also bc that's closer to the bigger picture...(and also during my weekly weigh ins i keep my clothes on and weigh myself in the middle of the day) while monthly ones I weigh myself as soon as I wake up....sooo here's my info so far

May 2nd~ 171 (Monthly)

12:50am: May setback
Had a major gain since last month....this morning weighed in at a whopping 171lb :( ughh seriously spring is supposed to make it easier to get into a routine...but classes, graduation, and work are just stressing me out too much to really concentrate on things I want, need and should do :-/ i'm gonna try and get my head and body back into a good place though...in the month of april i think i only worked out 3 times....that is horrible....but i am starting insanity again on may 20th (that way i can be finished by July 22)....i felt/looked really good doing that and i have a wedding to be in- in july and i really wanna look good for it! and be in bikini shape for most of the summer....so hopefully i can get my running training started back like tomorrow....lol bc I know at this exact moment i'm sooo not ready for insanity lol this time through insanity i'm following their eating plan to a T....i think i didn't lose much weight last time bc i was consuming too many calories and not getting enough water :) Think I'm gonna start tanning a little too....going to be relatively skinny, tan, and blonde (no more brown hair for this natural blonde! lol) by July! LOL
