I can't believe I'm LITERALLY addicted!

Hello readers, last night I realized something pretty bad. It turns out I'm addicted to Dr. Pepper. I went a whole day without drinking any (I'd had it every day for weeks now) and I, literally, began having an attack when I realized we didn't have any at home.

I'm broke, I have no money, but I had to beg my mom to buy me some, which thankfully she did. She told me it was wrong to drink Dr. Pepper like you should be drinking water, but I can't help it, I need Dr. Pepper to get me through a day!

As for my weight, well I haven't weighed myself lately and I haven't done anything to help keep the weight off, so that pretty much answers that: I'm doing squat. It sounds bad, because I'd love to be skinny before I'm out of college, but it's just not seeming to want to happen.

Side note: I started college this past Tuesday and it's not half bad. I enjoy it!

Well that's all the update I have for you. I will need to work on my addiction and hopefully have better news in my  next post!

Back on Water...again.

I don't know what happened to me, but I went from my "water only" diet to drinking pop all the time again. Man, it's hard to stop something you love. But for the past 3 or 4 weeks, I've drank nothing but water. 

Well, that's not entirely true.

I had some fresh squeezed lemonade this week, because it was where I work and I had never had any before. Turns out I love it!! 

In doses.

I can't drink lemonade strait for a day, so I went back to water, but that aside, I've been on my "water only" diet for around a month now and it's working out great. Not drinking soda has been hard though. Really, really, super really, hard. Legit, when there are $.69 cent drinks at QT and pop where I work, it's hard to resist, but I've stayed strong and been drinking the water only.

I'm hoping that this will give me the energy to eventually do something productive with my butt like go out and jog or maybe jump rope!! I don't know exactly, but I know something will happen and when push comes to shove, I'll throw my butt out the door and do something exercise related.

Maybe I can find someone to play tennis with. Perhaps not. It all depends, really.

This is a specific challenge in itself for me since I've been addicted to Dr. Pepper and couldn't NOT drink it. I honestly almost slipped today too. I was SO CLOSE to drinking some soda, but I grabbed a water and drank that instead. PHEW! It was a close call.

Anyway, I guess that's all I have for  you now, I'll keep you updated on how things go and if I can weigh myself, that too!

New Goals for summer

Okay, I'm back with a renewed confidence. A lot has happened since school ended and I graduated high school (woot woot!), but nothing weight loss related. Until now. When I post this blog!

Okay, to start off, I am going to say that I've been a lazy couch potatoe and I can't believe I'm letting all my progress slide down the drain. It really sucks to see that my movitivation was forced upon me through school curiculum. It's sad and I feel bad about it, but it's just part of my personality, I guess.

Or not. I'm not sure.

But regardless, I need to stop being lazy and go out and do something about it. No worries, I will become a super charged, buff, extra awesome dude and look super sexy for Christmas... in 2050, maybe. Haha, I'm just kidding. I'll get my butt in gear and start doing something.

I just wanted to post this quick update.

Last day of high school

It's make it or break it at this point. I either have to have the motivation or stay fat forever. Trust me, I've thought hard about if I would have the drive to go out that door and walk, jog, or do any physically helpful activity and to be honest, I think I can do it.

Maybe I'll need a little more drive than before, but let's think about it. I will have the 8 hours I was at school to myself now. I can either work more or go out and take a jog/walk around my neighborhood. Trust me, I can do that and sleep in too! I know I can, I just have to believe in myself.

As for motivation, let's just say I want to do this for myself, as I have always wanted too.  I just hope the summer opens up some blessings for me, y'know? I wanna kick this extra weight and have a transformation! I know that that'll only happen with effort and laying off the snacks, which is SO HARD for me.

To be totally honest with you, I haven't changed my eating habits and I could only stay away from pop for around a month before I went back and drank it like water again. I failed. But I didn't stop. I'm really going to try over the summer to be a better person and break that habit.

Hopefully my next post will have a better update.

One problem after another

So I have been feeling pretty good lately. My heel only hurts when I walk up and down steps or jog/run. I did my first set of Power Cleans Wednesday in Weight Training! I was so happy about that, I decided I'd try it and I didn't feel any pain in my foot at all when I did! (It's a exercise that works your lower ankles, etc...)

I even played Ultimate Frisbee at church Wednesday and it didn't hurt either! It was so fun to finally be able to do something again. I NEED TO PLAY TENNIS!! I think I'll post something on Facebook or something to see if anyone wants to play tennis. I really want to start that up again this summer.

As far as weight loss, I have no idea how much I weigh. I will try to weight myself soon, but I don't know where I can find an accurate scale. I only have a week left of school and I'll graduate high school. I seriously need to take my weight loss seriously, because if I don't... Well my goals won't be made (and to be honest, I don't see it happening this late in the game).

Guess I will just keep on striving and hope for the best next year. On the plus, I'll look good by college, I hope. I'll keep in touch.
