Things I wish to start doing

My to-do list:

So, I know April is almost over, but I am going to get a head start on planning big things for May.

I want to start making a “Goal List.” This is going to entail writing down things I would like to accomplish for each month. Things like finishing a book, walking a mile, stop hitting snooze so many times, and making the bed everyday for starters. As time goes on, my list will get more intense – maybe even with some of your suggestions! I think it will be a nice idea to physically see what I need to do right in front of me. It’s also a great feeling when you can cross finished things off a list! 😉
I think I will start posting these on the last day of every month for the following month. Yay, I’m so excited!

I also really want to dedicate more time to my blog. I need a hobby, an interest outside of work and relationships. I did have a Tumblr, but at the time I was just lacking motivation to keep it going. It just wasn’t what I was looking for-(nothing against Tumblr!) Maybe this time around I’ll do it the right way?

Stay tuned for May’s Goal List! 🙂


Current motivation

9 months = -30 lbs.

Since moving to the city in August of 2012, I’ve lost 30 pounds. And surprisingly, it’s just from eating right. “Right,” meaning healthier, more non-processed foods in smaller portions. I didn’t do any kind of dieting or avoiding any food groups. I just wanted to start eating better, and I did just that. And I’m not saying it will work for everyone, but being more conscious about what I was taking into my body helped me out a ton.
I also didn’t make the mistake of weighing myself everyday; and actually, we don’t even own a scale in my apartment. I happened to weigh myself when I visited my parents recently. Let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised to know that people weren’t faking it when they said, “Oh my, you’re just melting away!”

This weight loss is also without the gym. Now that I’m pretty much at a stand-still… I need to get to the gym to keep this up.

I already feel so much better about myself. T-shirts that were unwearable last summer are actually looking pretty decent on me. I’m excited to see how much further I can push my body.
