My obsessions

Ok I have been a horrible blogger!

First off it is my oldest niece's 10th birthday. Happy Birthday Sierra!!!!

Sorry this blog is going to be everywhere.

I have mentioned before when I get into something I kind of obsess over it. That could be good and bad. This semester is my first one back in about 7 years and I obsess over my grades. I worry about getting really good grades. Yes, I know no employee is going to look at my grades for employment but it's just something for me. It makes me feel good because I have struggled my whole life with reading a spelling (haven't you figured out by reading my blogs my grammar sucks).

My second obsess is my weight loss. I know it's not healthy to weigh yourself every day but I do. I helps me. If I lose I get excited and want to get back in the gym and continues to eat right. I want to keep the pounds falling off but if the number on the scale says I gained or staid the same I get my butt in gear. I watch what I eat closely and push myself in the gym. I do eat out because I don't want to cut things out completely but I weigh myself the next day to see what I am dealing with. This works for me. I still get Starbucks every big once in a while (closes one is and hour and a half away) and I eat my steak, cheese, and saucy gooey yummy food because if I say I can never have it again I will crash and stop eating healthy and binge eat but I have those few and far between.

Some of you know I did a Diet Bet online and loved it. I had to lose 4% of my body weight in 28 days. I had to lose 8.1 which I did plus some. My official loss was 10.2. I am really excited and I should find out how much I won soon. I also started another one. It keeps me on track because I do not like to lose money. As long as you lose it you get your money back and possibly more.

On another  subject, I have been thinking about finding a 5K around here but my itty bitty city doesn't really do much. I did fine a 5k in Roswell May 11 which I am going to attempt to do. I have been trying to get back into running again. I loved it but haven't done it in years. I have been doing some the past couple of weeks. I also have been trying to find other races but the only other is a Marathon, 1/2, and 5k on Sept 2. I was going to attempt to do the Marathon but the time line is cutting it close and I do not want to get hurt. Plus my husband has to work that day and if I am doing my first Marathon I would want him there. I have decided to just do the half marathon. I should have a good amount of time to train and not feel rushed. I will keep you guys updated.

BTW I need some new good healthy recipes because I have been making the same things over and over. Leave me a comment below with your favorites!!

  1. Thats a huge change! :) I wish I would get into the obsessive mood...but I cannot, I moan and vine but I still do nothing about it :( Grrrrr I need some motivation but its nowhere to be found! :)

    1. I know exactly how you feel. I started and stopped many times but this time it just stuck and the diet bet helped. I do not like to lose money.
