This week was hard. My eating was not as good as it could have been and I didn’t workout at all. My life just feels like it’s going in hyperspeed now and I just want to pause. There is always a test, or a quiz, or a project, or a huge assignment to complete that I have to work on. I take the SATs soon and I have to start studying for them and there is just so much pressure on me now that I feel like I’m drowning in a huge pool. I’m trying to get it together but I have never been so underwater in my life, and I was a swimmer for most of my adolescence. I will try to do the best I can with this challenge even with everything else though. Continue reading
And I am done with 1st week of my Bikini Ready Body Challenge. I have to say this week has been a learning experience. I started off good and then started reverting to bad habits (starving) and then binging. I decided that I want to keep my calories between 1200-1500 calories so I have a bit of wiggle room. My workouts for next week are also shorter so I will be more likely to do them. My main goal for the next few months is to gain healthier habits and get to a healthy weight. As long as the scale is moving in the right direction I am happy. Here was my workout schedule for this week: Continue reading
One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to get to a comfortable weight/body. To get there I’m going to start posting weekly updates on my weight, diet and workouts. Hopefully I can help anyone who is trying to get fit. This challenge will go till June 21st which the end of school for me. I have lost weight before so I know what I need to do, I just need to do it. This program is going to be a similar format to Beach Body Bootcamp, which I did over a year ago. For my workout I think I’m going to try the Insanity Workout again. Continue reading
After seeing how much I’ve accomplished this year, it only makes me want to do more in 2014. I want to end 2014 in a better place than I did this year (whatever that means). I have new goals that I want to accomplish that I didn’t even think about this year. I mainly want to grow this year, so I will call this the year of growth and all my goals will stem from this idea in one shape or another. On that note, here are my 2014 New Year’s Resolution: Continue reading
This year has been such a growing experience for me. I lost weight and I gained weight. I got good grades and I got bad grades. I made new friends and lost touch with some old ones. I gained new sense of confidence. I learned so much about myself as a person. This year I realized that I have to love myself, fat or skinny, good grades or bad grades, friendly or mean, because I’m all I have. I learned that nothing is forever and I have to make the best of what I have right now. I realized that I can plan for the future but right now is what matter. I was scared to look at these goals again because I now that I have changed since I made them. I am smarter and more self aware now. I will go through these resolutions with a clear head and judge whether the person in 2012 would approve of how well I’ve done combined with my 2013 self who doesn’t see black and white. On that note, here are my 2013 New Years Resolutions in review: Continue reading
Since I’m back to blogging I figured I do a winter fashion post. I did a post like this in the summer and loved doing it so here is a winter version.
The basic white top, simple black skirt, warm long brown cardigan, black booties, black and gold bag, black turban and the unexpected printed leggings have warm winter look with a sexy pop. Continue reading
For this workout you can either run outside or on a treadmill. If you run outside, 1 is the easiest pace and 10 is you are sprinting all out.

I am so sorry that I haven’t posted in 2 months, that’s like 2 years in the blogging world. In August I went on vacation and then I was doing summer homework and then in September school started and it has been insane ever since. I’m taking 4 AP classes and am going crazy. I’m stressed out and strung out half the time. I also joined a couple of clubs (and quit cross country…not enough time) and decided that my friend and I are going to start a feminist/gender equality club at school which has also taken up some time.
