My trek towards healthier living.

Good afternoon World!

I’m not going to go on for long in this first post.  Once again I find myself trying to curb my appetite and waist-line because after a good almost year of being content with my progress, I have ballooned once more.  Within the past year that I have been off, I have graduated, gotten a new job, and gone back to my truck-driver eating habits.

That is all I am in the mood for sharing today.

See y’all later.

Hey there blogosphere world.  I have been AWOL for the past week due to final exams, an abundance of work, and Mother’s Day Shenanigans.  I am proud to say that I am down four pounds to 181lbs in total and am starting to feel some minor changes in my everyday gait.

I have started going back to the gym on a regular basis, doing my cardio and strength training on alternative days.  I am trying to keep doing ab workouts on a daily basis.  In the past my grandmother used to tell me that I need to work on my abs in order to work on my posture and it is beginning to pay off a little.  Although I am still prone to slouching when I am not focusing on my posture (like I am doing at the moment),  I have begun to pay more attention when I am in public or walking around with a backpack on my shoulders to the way I am standing.

On the first day I went back to the gym, I decided to go to my old, intense Zumba class.  Not a particularly great idea on my part, as it led to a lot of cramping the next day which made climbing the numerous stairs at my house and school a bit of a challenge.  However, I do not regret diving head-first into achieving my goals because I am sick of not feeling my best.

On the agenda for today is help work on the cleaning-out of the basement, do laundry, and exercise (weight training at home and Zumba tonight at the gym).   For now, I think I will start with a banana smoothie for breakfast.

Have a wonderful Tuesday everybody!

I feel a little bad because I have already had a minute stumble.  Yesterday I really messed up my eating schedule.  At work I ate a chocolate croissant which ended up being my breakfast and lunch along with a bottle of water.  I had to catch a study group at school afterword which ended up lasting from 4:30pm-10:30pm.  I had a bottle of water and a granola bar with me which was pretty good.  However, I ended up finally getting dinner at 11:30pm from a local diner which consisted of a burger with lettuce, tomato, and feta cheese as well as french fries.  At the same time I am proud of myself because I only ate three french fries and gave the rest to my friends.

Tomorrow I begin my 12-week diet challenge and my old exercising regimen.  Hope things start to look better.

Hi guys,
These shall be my daily musings and vents as I traverse the world as I change my eating and exercising habits.  Over the past three years I have increased my weight from 150lbs to  185lbs.  I am in the midst of figuring out the root of my issues and working hard to curb them before any health issues arise in my life.  I hope that in the future I will be happier with what I am doing and achieve the goals I set for myself.  If I misstep or fall far from my goals, I shall try even harder to achieve my next goal.

This week I am still 185lbs and hope to be 183lbs this time next week.  I am a commuter college student who works in a bakery, surrounded by a lot of temptations.  This week I shall start to phase breads out of my diet as well as sugar drinks.

I hope I make it.

Have a blessed day all!
