Goals and Books

I have got to get used to this blogging thing. I haven't felt that great today and so exercising is being pushed back until tomorrow. As far as eating, it's coming along slowly but surely. I am really craving a strawberry banana rendezvous from Coldstone Luckily, spending the money for it is what's holding me back. Sad, huh?

On top of OSN, I have decided to partake in the 101 things in 1001 days. I'm still compiling my list but I should have it posted by tomorrow (not that anyone actually reads this).

As for what I'm reading, I have to read Tolstoy's The Death of Ivan Ilyich and write a paper on it that's due Monday. Needless to say the reading is done but the paper is not. Also, I was able to read a little for pleasure last night so I picked back up reading Dewey. I really thought I was going to enjoy this book because I love cats but the author spent an entire chapter on the history of the town. I'm really struggling to finish reading it but I made a promise to myself that I cannot start another book until I finish it. I just got a few Sarah Dessen books over the weekend for cheap and I've got 3 coming from PBS that I'm excited about. Man, I can't wait until June 26th when I'm done with my mini-mester class.

It's no secret that I'm fat. I hate it but I am. To be honest, after I quit LA Weight Loss I gained back everything I lost plus 40 pounds and that depresses me. When I was at my old weight I always felt like a cow and after looking at pictures yesterday from that time, I found myself saying, "God, I wish I looked like that again."

Then I read Anna Marie's blog, Metamorphosis, and it totally inspired me. I wanted to get back into an exercise routine like I once did. Last August and this past February I signed up for this fitness program for women called Adventure Boot Camp..let me tell you that was the best decision I made. Granted, it's too expensive for me to keep on going every month but everything I learned from it was priceless. So, I asked Adam if he wanted to go running with me last night when he got off work and he did so we went! We decided for the rest of this week to start off slow (we'll go again tomorrow and do another mile) but next week we'll go 3 days a week and try to do at least 1 mile and then starting Monday I'm going to jump into doing the 30 Day Shred.

Losing weight isn't just a goal anymore, it's going to happen, along with getting myself to eat better. Thanks to all the girls on the NBC board, I feel so confident that I won't give up.
