well begun is half done.

As my first post, I will just kind of tell just a few things that may need to be known about me and why I created this blog. =) 
I will start by saying I am a sophomore at the University of Northern Colorado. This photo is on my very last day of my freshmen year. Yes, I look a bit dreadful, due to all the tears of saying goodbye and what not, but it does well to show my body. This dress really accents all the areas that I want to loose weight from. Seeing as the main point of this blog is weight loss, that is what I will be focusing on. However, I am sure I will throw in other fun topics and posts as well.
I am thinking that I will most likely do a post a couple times a week, just saying how much I have lost for the week, how the week is going, and how I feel about my overall health for the time being. But, I may throw in a few extra posts just to show some of my new finds in exercise, or even good-healthy snacks, or maybe fun stuff that is going on! =)
I know that this is a long time process that requires a lot of hard work, but I can do it! =) 

You will never reach your goal until you start to take action, any action.

Tonight after having a very healthy dinner, my mom and I went for frozen yogurt and then a walk/jog… after every lap I would jog then sprint some… Then, the VERY last lap I sprinted as hard and as fast as I could … and I just felt great. Haha, It was like pretending I was a sprinter! Kinda silly, but it was fun momentary motivation! =) Now, I just have to keep doing this!

This morning my little sisters said they wanted pancakes for breakfast… so, knowing that my grandma’s old recipe is not the healthiest of repasts, I decided to look up a whole wheat and banana recipe! =) It came out pretty fantastic!

Here lately, I have cheated bad… really bad… I ate carbs upon carbs upon sugars and more sugars! Oh, and did I mention, lots of calories?! I gained about two pounds back, and it made me feel pretty bad… specifically because my vacation, isn’t too far away! I only have about 3 weeks until I leave, so, that gives me three weeks to feel good in my skin, and have the confidence I need to have a good time on this trip! So, here I go, I am going to work hard, and get in shape… and do what I need to to lose this weight!


Don’t give up!
