Day 1


so I am new to blogging so I should probably introduce myself...I am an 18 year old college student living in NY. I love partying, shopping, boys, and working out. I'm currently home on vacation from my first semester away from home and I am so bored, so I decided to create a blog!!

I have had weight issues in the past and I am gonna use this blog for inspiration and hopefully to inspire some of my readers. As some of you may know, it is SO HARD to be healthy let alone lose weight in college and even before college my weight has been CRAZAYY all over the place, but since this summer I have gained almost 20 pounds!!! I will try to write as much as possible here and I will write about my obstacles, the different diets I experiment with and things like diet and workout tips. I'm going to be downright honest with you guys, letting you know what things work and what things don't work. But, this won't be just about working out and losing weight, I'll be sure to fill you in in all my crazy times at school, going out, boys, and juicy gossip in NY =)

Soo, I just started getting back in shape. I have worked out the past 5 days. I usually do the elliptical for 30-45 minutes and lots of sit ups. Today, i did abs, lifted a little, elliptical for 15 minutes and swam for about 20 minutes...I used to run a lot and i did cross country and track in high school, but since gaining so much weight, it kills my knees to run =/ My first goal is to start running again and enter a road race in Central Park...

Today I am trying to do an altered detox diet...I had 1/2 a grapefruit for breakfast, a cup of orange juice, 1/4 a graham cracker, and a coffee. I had 1/2 a graham cracker for lunch with a few slices of orange and another coffee...I am pretty hungry right now, but i think I will feel better in a bit. I am making sure to drink plentyyy of water and take my vitamins everyday! I can get really grumpy when I am hungry because I get tired, hence the coffee, but I cannot live without coffee either way even though it is pretty bad for dieting. Oh well, we will deal with that later...

P.s. did i mention that the first thing my mom said to me when i got home from school before Christmas was "hmm, what have you been doing for working out? your thighs are looking too big and bulky, have you been lifting to make them like that?" UMMM HELLOO!!! NO!! Do you think I have time to go to the gym while im trying to ace these Finals?? I think not. thanks mom. at least I can always count on her to be brutally honest and motivate me to lose this weight.

P.P.S I am not sure if I'm ready to share with the entire internet community my current weight, but let me tell you it is disgusting. But so you know a ball park, my ultimate goal is to lose 50 pounds...lets see how this goes.. Thanks for reading =)
