It's been a month already?

WOW!! I cant believe April is over already. It just seems like yesturday I started my lifestyle change and now the month is almost over. I'm sad to say that I haven't been up on it as much as I should, blogging and other wise. But Im gonna get better.

The main reason for me blogging is to hold myself accountable for achieving my goals and plans and when I become stagnant in them. Bloggin everyday is also a goal as it reminds me and motivates me to get better in different areas of my life that I'm trying to change. Unfortunately I haven't been doing that, and like I said, I'm trying to get better.

The last couple of weeks have been uneventful. I've spent the days in bed, applying for jobs, reading, praying, and contemplating. I havent excersised at all on the account that I've been on my mentraul cycle (TMI i know :s) now for two weeks and I just dont feel like it. Yep, you read that right. Two weeks. That is something that is normal for me (or abnormal to some). Because of my weight and my lack of physical activity my mentraul cycle has always been weird. I could get it maybe a few times a year for about 5 days. But I guess if you become more active you're periods become more regular, so I figure my body is now trying to catch up to all the activity and the changes it's been going through.

But anyway, enough about that. I have a job interview tomorrow, my second this month, and I'm really excited. I've prayed and done everything I can and left it up to God to provide, and I have faith that he will supply.
The goals that I set out to accomplish this month, I can say that I may have accomplished about 50% of it. But that's fine.

Anyway, today is a new day and I want to cease it. I hope everyone enjoys the day and remember to do something out of the ordinary.

3 down 97 more to go.

Check out these pics of Jennifer Husdon. She is looking so beautiful and slim. She's definately my inspiration.

Today is workout day and end of the week weight in. I completed my strength training and did 30 minutes of cardio on my elliptical. Yes ya'll I finally was able to do the WHOLE 30 minutes. I felt soo good.
And guess what I weighed myself and I've lost 3lbs so far. I'm now at 247lbs. My goal is to loose at least 1.5lbs a week but you always loose alot more on your first couple of weeks.

When I started on Monday I knew that it would be difficult to do this program, but I'm dedicated to reaching my goal weight of 150lbs by my birthday next year. I've noticed that since I started my journey I've taken notice of how many weight loss shows are on tv, lol. Before I would just skip the it and turn the channel to something else that interested me. But now, I want to watch these people on tv and what their struggle is and how they're going through their journey. It's fascinating how much I can identify with some of these people when the veil of denial is lifted.

One thing that I definately need to work on is my eating style. My household does not carry alot of fruits and veggies and alot of the essencials needed to eat right, but I'm making the best of it. I'm still drinking my 8 8oz of water a day. Actually, it's more like 168oz of water a day. That's right. The glass I use is equivalent to 3 cups of water,so multiply that by 7 it's 21cups of water, multilply that by 8oz and you get.... 168. No wonder I can pee like a lemur.

I aint quitting yet. Who knows I may be looking like Jennifer pretty soon.
God Bless.
Today is Good Friday. And if you dont know what that means, it means that today our Lord Jesus Christ was taken to the cross to be crusified. The significance of today is instrumental to believers of the faith like me, not just because of the who Jesus is, but because of why he died. Jesus said that He came so that WE (you and I) could have life and have it more abundantly. Even if you dont believe, know that Jesus is for you and that today He died so that YOU may live again. He loves you so much that he layed His life down for your sake. Welcome Him into your heart today. You'll never regret it.
