Day 4: After Dark

I am determined to stick with this photo challenge this month! So far so good.

If only I could say the same thing for the Shred….. I just can’t get motivated to get off my butt and do it. Although, I watched Extreme weight loss lastnight and that always gets me motivated but it was too late by the time I got done watching it. This girl lastnight started out weighing 314lbs (she was 400lbs at her heaviest but lost 100lbs on her own), at the end she weighed 155lbs! Wow! Talk about inspiring! I know I don’t have anywhere near that much to lose, I just want to lose 10-15 lbs and get in shape. If she can do it so can I! I’m thinking of joining a gym.
I’m still eating healthy. I made a porkchop and asparagus for dinner lastnight, I still haven’t had a coke…. although the other day I told my sister I wanted a Cherry Limeade and she brought me one from Sonic and it did not agree with me! No more of those for me! That’s just proof that I don’t need any of that in my body.

I’m currently reading


Karen Kingsbury’s The Chance.

I’m not too far into it yet but so far so good! I love her books! The thing with her books though is, she usually writes series. I don’t like series, I like stand alone books. This is the first stand alone book she has written in awhile so I’m excited to get further into it!


Getting Healthy!

Well, as you can see, I didn’t follow through with the photo a day challenge.. is anyone surprised?
I didn’t think so.

My family and I are doing a weight loss challenge from now until Christmas Eve(that’s a long time!). I’ve been doing pretty good on it! I haven’t had a single coke in 2 weeks. I’ve been drinking lots of water and unsweet tea. I’ve lost 4lbs so far in 2 weeks. I need to start working out but I figure eating healthy is a good start for now. Baby steps right? I have walked around the park by my apartment, it is almost a mile around. 2 days in a row I walked it twice around each day, I need to do that more often.

I’ve been eating healthier also. In the 2 weeks I’ve been doing this I’ve only had Taco Villa once and I felt extremely guilty after I ate a bean & cheese burrito without the red sauce, it’s only like 198 calories but I still felt guilty.

I’ve been eating a lot of salads, chicken, tuna etc. The other night I made a pork chop and steamed broccoli. It was really good! I need some new ideas and recipes for lunches & dinners so I don’t get burnt out eating the same things. I need a personal chef. That’d make my life a lot easier! Ha! Tonight I’m going to make another pork chop and I’m going to try baking the broccoli this time. It should be pretty yummy! At least I hope it is. I’ll try to remember to take a picture and post it.

I’ll leave y’all with a few pictures from a couple of weeks ago.
