So, I went on a diet around April of last year and I actually lost about 12 lbs! I was actually able to maintain it for a little while and then the holidays came around and I gained pretty much all of it back. Oh, I was so close to reaching my goal weight (about 10 more lbs) and of course, stupid me, slacked off! What is it about the cold weather that makes you lose focus and motivation? Maybe it's the lack of sunlight? If it is, then I definitely can't live in Alaska! Haha.

Well, the Spring is finally upon us and I think I should start back up again with this diet and hopefully, I can maintain it this time. I really want to lose weight, start eating healthier, and not spend so much money on junk food. I guess my first challenge is to resist temptations. I still live at home and let's just say it's going to be super hard to start. It's going to be hard when I'm going through this journey alone and everyone around me is just eating whatever they want. I then have to start cooking at home every day and prep meals for work. I have to make sure not to get lazy and make time to do this. I think that's the second challenge. Time management is key. Also, I have to make sure I do some kind of exercise each day. Running or even small exercises (my third challenge). I know they have a bunch of them on Pinterest that I can print out. Haha. 

I really hope to start this week. I figured if I blog about my journey, it'll be a way for me to stay motivated. If you have any suggestions on how to stay motivated or even workout suggestions, please leave me a comment! Thanks!

song of the moment...

Justin Timberlake - Not a Bad Thing

Omg. I'm currently obsessed with this song. I can't stop listening to it! It has such a great Pop and R&B feel to it and it gives you that feeling of wanting to fall in love. Almost like having butterflies in your stomach, but not...well at least it does for me. Haha. Even the lyrics are super sweet. Well done, JT. You've outdone yourself once again. Was this song written for me? It's ok...we don't have to tell Jessica Biel.

Now, go check out the music video that came out yesterday. Trust me when I say this, but you're gonna want to see more after you're done watching it. Just don't get mad at me like other people have. Haha. ;)

book two.

Sorry for my absence again, but guess who finished book two?! I did!

I'm not gonna lie, but I got into a weird funk last month and did not feel like doing anything at all. I did, however, start to knit a couple of cowls for some friends, which I still need to finish. I don't know what it was about last month, but I was so not motivated to do anything! Maybe it was the snow!

Anyway, the last week of the month, I finally realized that I don't want to be that d-bag that writes down all these resolutions at the beginning of the year and fail miserably by the next month. So, I grabbed the first book that I found in my bedroom and read it from beginning to end. This book was Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.

I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this book. I borrowed this book a while back from my best friend and never got around to reading it til now. I don't know what took me so long, but I really wish I read it sooner. It teaches you that many people today do not appreciate life and the simple things it has to offer. People today have become so materialistic and money hungry that it became so easy to take things for granted. This story has definitely opened up my mind and help me appreciate everything and everyone around me more than I already have, which I honestly did not think was possible. The book was an easy read and didn't take long to finish. Be warned though, it will bring you to tears. I feel like I was crying throughout the whole thing. I had to stop a couple of times to wipe some tears away cause the words were starting to get blurry. Haha. It's such a beautiful story and I highly recommend it. I can honestly say that this book helped me get out of my weird funk this month and I'm so thankful for it. I'm again motivated, especially to read more books and follow through with my resolutions. Now, your turn to read it! Go!
