ramblings, HOT 100 challenge!!!

I feel like i need to sound all smart in the blogging world, but that's not what i want to do or had in mind to do with this blog. I wanted to use the blog for a venting of sorts of my mind and heart, and my weight loss and struggles with food, and if i can help other people along the way, then so be it!

And i definitely love the TOM, water retention, and how i don't lose much weight when i'm on my period. It's just absolutely wonderful. NOT!

I've worked out 3 days this week, and tomorrow will be 4! How exciting. Go me! I was always told how exercising, is good for my and will help bring down my stress level, and will help to not make me want to eat so much... and boy it is so true! What a beautiful thing. I really do feel better about myself.

I think having a goal to work towards- wanting to be healthier, being able to sit comfortably in airplane, looking at yourself in the mirror and not wanting to gag or turn away; it's a beautiful thing. It makes weight loss and all the hard work, more attainable. Making those short term goals, and things to reach work and work for not as painful.

I have like 3 or 4 boxes of clothes in my closet, i really can't wait to be able to wear those- and to try some of those clothes on that i haven't worn in months and years, and for the clothes to fit! i'm just so excited for this new me that i'm finding that will come to be. I am so excited to be losing weight finally, and doing this for me, and not because anyone else wants me to. I'm excited to lose the weight, and for it never to be found again!!!

I graduate from LPN school in 103 days! oh my word. That is so exciting and so scary! I'm gonna be a big girl again and getting out into the real word. I CAN NOT wait to play ultimate frisbee again some day.

that's all for now folks, keep it real.

PS- A challenged was posted by South Beach Steve, and i can not turn down a good challenge :) So here goes! You can read more about it, here!

The challenge officially started Yesterday, September 23rd, but we have until October 1st to post our information. The challenge will require weekly posting and updates. Part of the challenge, we have to set 3 goals to achieve for the 100 days, definitely my least favorite part.

1) I definitely will be sleeping more- It helps with weight loss, energy, and mood :)
2) I WILL exercise 4-5 times a week, and doing some weights too.
3) Continue to have good foods prepared and cooked, so i'm not tempted to stop for junk food and fast food after clinicals, school, working out, etc.
4) Be way more committed to Ideal Protein, follow the plan exactly, to maximize my weight loss!

This really is exciting! I'm so pumped for these next 98 days :) LET'S DO THIS!!! WE CAN DO THIS!!! Let's change America and the world, one healthier person at a time!
