December 20, 2013.
So it’s essentially been 4 months since i’ve blogged. oops. this past semester was just insane, and a lot more work than i initially anticipated. however, with blood, sweat, and many tears, i made it through alive with a 3.8 semester GPA, for an overall GPA of 3.735. Not the best GPA but definitely not bad.
Small victory, I didn’t gain any weight this semester. I didn’t lose any, but I didn’t gain any. Which is amazing considering the amount of fruit snacks, fish sticks, crackers, pasta, and fast food I ate, and the amount of vodka, vanilla coke, and beer I drank. I got lucky that somehow it all disappeared.
This semester will be different though. There’s a girl I went to highschool with, she was a few years older than me and we were NOT friends. BUT she used to be 235 lbs and since the beginning of the year she’s lost over 100 lbs, just by eating right and doing a lot of cardio. That was seriously inspiration for me. If this girl can lose 100, I can lose 40. If she can run, I can run. I know it won’t be an instant process, but my Little in my sorority is going to train for Color Me Rad 2014 with me (MARCH 15, WOOHOOO! SO EXCITED!!) and I have a bunch of friends who constantly nag me to go to the gym with them. There’s also this detox tea I want (TinyTea from YourTea). I follow them on instagram and am in love with their success stories, and I asked for it for Christmas hehe. When i was talking to my dad about it the other day, i told him i’ll go back to being gluten free if I get the tea, so i hope that works.. because i hate being gluten free but if it comes down to it I can be. I have the genes for celiac disease but haven’t been diagnosed. I was gluten free for years and it sucks. But it’ll honestly be so much better for my health. And today I made a smoothie for the first time in months so that was amazing and delicious (tangerine juice, peaches, pears, strawberries, cucumbers, celery).
And with that, here are my New Year’s Resolutions
- Hit the gym at least once a week for an hour. That’ll do almost nothing but if I am low, I can always exceed my goal.
- Go gluten free. It’ll suck, but I need to do it
- Cut down on carbs in general, and increase the amount of protein I eat. One of my favorite snacks is already vegetables with Garlic&Herb laughing cow cheese, so I got the healthy snack thing down, I just need more protein.
- By the end of the semester, I want to be able to be happy with what I look like. Right now, i’m not 100% unhappy, because I’ve found a way to dress myself where I like what i look like (mostly) but I want to be able to wear my tight clothes and stuff without wanting to cry.
Happy holidays, everyone!
