Weigh in Tiiiime!

Well, I'm a little disappointed.

I only lost 1 lb this week.

I'm doing everything right and I'm not sure why I didn't lose 2 this week.

I might have to make my workouts more intense.

So the goal for this week is to intensify my workouts!

And let's keep our fingers crossed that I lose 2 lbs next week!

The good news is, is that today I've reached a weight loss of 10 lbs!!

That's definitely exciting.

I have 10 more to go!

One Tree Hill


Day 21 - One of my favorite shows



One Tree Hill. Actually, this is my favorite show of all time! I have seen every episode and I have kind of grown up with these characters!

It first premiered in 2003 and when I watched the first episode I fell in love!

One of the characters, Brooke, is my favorite. She's so sassy and tells it like it is!



I seriously look forward to Tuesday nights when this show comes on! :)

Education


Day 21 - How important I think education is

Oh wow. I think education is so very important.

I think it's the best thing we can do for ourselves and I'm so glad I'm going to college.

I also think teachers are so underpaid that it bothers me so much and definitely gets my heart racing when I think about it.

Anyways..

Go to school, kids. ;)

Couch-to-5K

The first time that I actually like ran since probably middle school (for longer than 1 minute) was in January.

The reason why I never wanted to run before is beacuse I would get bad shin splints!

That's why I was scared to do it back in January when I started my journey to lose 20 lbs.

What I used to use, instead of the treadmill, was the elliptical or stairmaster since they weren't hard on my shins.

So when I tried it back in January, and actually didn't get shin splints, I was amazed.

I was also amazed that *gasp* I actually liked running!

Ever since January, I've been running a couple times a week (and doing circuit training on the other days) and I love it!

I do interval training on the treadmill.

It's where you basically sprint for a certain amount of time at a high speed, then bring the speed back down to a lower level and then walk for a certain amount of time.

I do sprints really fast for 30 seconds and then walk for 30 seconds for a total time of 20 minutes and I love it.

Yesterday I went out and even bought new running shoes!

Aren't they cute?

I think so.

So, anyways, now that I have found a love for running, I was thinking of starting the Couch-to-5K program once I hit my weight loss goal of 20 lbs!

So, I was wondering if any of y'all have tried this program and what your opinions are of it?

I'd love to know!

It'd be awesome to run a 5K!

Thanks, y'all! :)

Weigh in Tiiiime!

This week wasn't as good as last week but I'm still pleased I lost ANYTHING.

This week I lost...

*drumroll please*

1 lb!

To be honest I was a little disappointed at first.

I was expecting 2 lbs this week and to hit my halfway mark of 10 lbs!

But this coming week I'm going to work SUPER hard and hopefully I will hit it next Sunday!

I'm glad I lost something.

I have 11 lbs to go, y'all!

Disrespect



Day 19 - Disrespecting my parents

I have so much respect for my parents, and I know that back in my foolish teenage years that I might have disrespected them, but now that I'm almost 22 and somewhat mature I know that I must respect my parents.

I'm not going to say that I am very close with my mother, but I do know how to respect her, even if she's not respecting me. I live in her house and I do know that I need to respect her if I want to keep living here another 6 months before I move out in August.

Anyways, kids, respect your parents.

The end.




Day 30

Well, y'all, today is the last day of the 30 Day Picture Blog!

I'm kind of relieved. Is that bad?

Anyways...onto Day 30.

Day 30 - A picture of someone I miss.



My nana.

This is a picture of my dad and his mom (I call her nana).

I miss her so much.

I saw her back in July, but it's just way too long ago.

She used to live here in GA, but moved to FL about 8 years ago.

I used to see her all of the time, but now I see her two or three times a year and it sucks.

I hate it.

She seriously is the person I look up to.

I love her so much, it kills me.

She is the sweetest person you'll ever meet and the most caring.

I honestly don't know what I'd do without her and I hate that I only get to see her a few times a year. :(

Hopefully I'll be seeing her soon, though!!

If not, I don't know what I'll do!

Happy Valentines Day and 2 Years!



Happy Valentines Day!

Tony and I celebrated on Saturday since he has to work Monday and then Monday night he has to do homework.

He suprised me with a nice dinner at Ray's Killer Creek. I got a yummy steak dinner and he got crab cakes! It was very good!

He also got me a ginormous stuffed Basset Hound! It's ADORABLE!

I actually slept with it last night! Hehe.

He also got me sugar free candies, a chocolate rose, a nice card, and a rose plant!

I made him these and I bought him some Muscadine Juice from Whole Foods.

I also got him a nice card and made him one of his favorite foods on Friday night - Au Gratin Potatoes! Yum!

I also got him something else, but I'm not going to say what it is just yet because it hasn't arrived yet and I know he reads my blog sometimes! ;)

So, overall, a very great weekend!

We also rented Shrek Forever After! Loved it!

I did take one pic of the night. I just forget to take pictures. I really need to start getting better about this!

I think it's cute, though.




Today is also Tony and my 2 year anniversary! 2 years ago he asked me to be his girlfriend!

And it's not like he planned it out to be on Valentine's Day, either!

It just happened and I'm glad it did! :)

And I'm SO glad I said yes!

I love him with all my heart!

He's definitely the best boyfriend, ever!

I hope y'all have a WONDERFUL Valentine's Day!

Weigh - in Time!

Well, y'all, this week was a good week!

I lost 2 lbs this week!

That's a total of 8 lbs lost in 5 weeks! I'll say that's pretty darn good!

I have 12 lbs left to go!!

This week I actually started to notice the changes and I'm lovin' 'em!

I'm thinking that by the beginning of April I will be at my goal!

And I can't wait!


Spiders & Highs and Lows

Day 28 - A picture of something I'm afraid of.


This picture is so dsigusting! Ugh!




Day 17 - My highs and lows of this past year.

I had a ton of highs this past year. I had great memories made with Tony, I had great times with my family, the holidays were amazing, my 21st birthday couldn't have been better, I had great times with my friends. There were honestly a ton more highs than lows this past year.

The lows that I had were that I got into it with my mom a few times this past year. I'm not going to say we have the best relationship in the world, and it makes me sad of course. But we definitely had a few fights this past year that I wish we wouldn't have.

Anyways, I'm moving out in 6 months from today and I'm so stoked. I've never been this excited about anything! Eeek! :]

I Heart Family..and Tumblrs?

Day 27 - A picture of myself and a family member.

Well, I have TONS of these..but here ya go!

My sister, me, my nana, my cousin Bianca, and my cousin Alicia in a cabin in Nantahala, North Carolina in July of '10. Most fun trip with my whole family.

Hey, I figured if I was going to post a picture, why not one with many family members? :o)



Day 15 - My favorite Tumblrs.

What's a tumblr? Like Tervis Tumbler? I'm confused. That's why I'm skipping to day 16.

Day 16 - My views on mainstream music.

I love most mainstream music. It's not like I'm tryng to be like all the "cool kids" but I just love what sounds good, and most mainstream music sounds good!

I hope everyone is having a GREAT Thursday!

Today I've worked out, done laundry, studied a 'lil, and watched an episode of Oprah that was taking up space on my DVR.

Also, my mom's boyfriend found this dog on Monday, roaming around and decided to take it to our house!

We DON'T need any more animals here. Not gonna lie..I was a 'lil pissed when he brought this dog into our house.

Now my mom wants to keep it. Which is NOT a good idea.

It looks like a black German Shepard.

Y'all be the judge.


Yes, that's my slipper.





Tony and I plan on finding out where my mom's boyfriend found her and and putting up signs of her this weekend. She's such a sweet dog and I just know her family is missing her terribly.

On Saturday, Tony and I are going to celebrate our 2 year anniversary (which is actually on Valentines Day) and Valentines Day since Monday really isn't a good day for us to be celebrating.

We're going out to dinner (he's suprising me on the place) and then not sure what else.

I'm making him these.

Yum!

Have a great day, y'all!

Pictures and My Earliest Memory

Sorry for my lack of posting!

I've been super busy this week so far!

Day 25 of the 30 Day Picture Blog is to post a picture of my day.

Well, I don't have a picture of my day, sadly, so I'm going to skip to day 26.

Day 26 - A picture of something that means a lot to me.


This is me and my dog, Frankie. Or better known as Frank, Frankles, Frankster.

Animals in general mean a ton to me. I just care so much about them, especially my own.



And now onto Day 14 of this 30 Day Challenge.

Day 14  - My earliest memory.

I have a ton of memories from when I was little, but one memory that sticks out that might just  be my earlier is when I fell out of the car window.

My family had a lake house in Olathe, Kansas back when I was born to about 6 years old.

We used to go all the time in the summer.

The lake house was off a gravel road.

Well, one day, we were headed to the lake house, and we were on that gravel road. We were going really slow, probably about 10 miles an hour, and I was on my mom's lap.

The window was down and I was reaching my arm out trying to grab the branches on trees.

Well, I reached a little too far, and I fell out the window onto the gravel.

Now, I can't really remember how much it hurt or anything like that, but I do remember trying to grab the branches and falling out.

My mom said that I only had a few scratches.

I can remember that moment so well.

Kinda funny now that I think about it.

I hope y'all have a great Tuesday!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway!

You have until tomorrow (until 11:59 PM) to enter!

Vacation



Day 13 - Somewhere I'd like to move or visit

I love living in Georgia and there really is nowhere else I'd rather live to be honest.

There are a lot of places I'd like to visit though!

I mentioned on here before that I'd love to go to Australia and Hawaii.

So this time I'll name somewhere else!

I'd love to go to New York! Especially during Christmas time!




Weigh in Time!

Ladies! And gentlemen?

I lost 1.2 lbs this week!

I'm very happy with this number!

Like I said before, as long as I'm losing then it's all that matters!

I'm starting to begin to notice the changes in my body and I like it!

I'm down 6 lbs, with 14 to go! :o)
