day eight.

Short term goals for this month and why.

What a perfect month to be asked this question! I think usually I would have made up goals because I felt obligated to because I am being asked.
However! I definitely have a goal for this next month!

Now I am a bit of a "health nut", and I do looove exercising, but because of my busy schedule (working 50 hrs a week) I seem to only exercise 2-3 times a week.
But, with that cruise coming up so soon, I am determined to work out 6 days a week and be EXTRA careful about what I eat because, honestly, I want to look AWESOME.
(am I vain for wanting that? wouldn't everybody like that?...)

Truth is, the heaviest I ever was was 167.
The other day I weighed myself at Evan's gym, and with my running shoes, I was 142.5.
I feel pretty great! it has been a course of a little over a year. and now that I'm going on a trip where I'll be practically living in a swimsuit, I'm excited to feel comfortable enough with myself to have pictures taken of our trip without having to cover up every second or checking EVERY SINGLE PICTURE to make sure I look okay.
I hope I don't sound vain, or braggy about this. I honestly just feel excited to have made it so far, because I feel like I work hard! and since it is my goal for the month, I thought I would share it.

  1. You go girl! I am not sure what cruise line you are taking, we were on Carnival. But I think most cruises have gyms. I can honestly say I didn't step FOOT in it, but thinking back--maybe I should have. First, it was surrounded my windows looking out to the ocean, kinda serene. Second--we ate and ate and ate. Which is one of the BEST things about cruises. All of the food is included and you can eat as much as you want. Chris isn't shy about saying he gained 15 pounds on our cruise. I wouldn't change eating so much, because it was REAL fun, but I think I would have worked out for 30 minutes in the morning every day just to get a head start. :)
