Movie Inspirations

I was thinking yesterday that there are some Books that just need to be made into movies that haven't been. So I decided I should compile a list. So here it is, I will add to it as time passes (don't worry). 

-  Uglies, Pretties, Specials, and Extras. A book series written by Scott Westerfeld

-  Silmarillion written by J.R.R. Tolkien

-  ALL of the Narnia series books by C.S Lewis (not just 2 or 3 of them)

- Blink a book written by Ted Dekker.

Wow, it has been a long time since I have been on here, sorry anyone who may still be trying to follow my blog. Life has been busy, as it always will be. We now have a new member in our family, Raina, our precious little girl that we adopted from Oregon Dog Rescue. She is one year old and keeps us busy. Additionally I have applied to a Masters Online Program for the Health Sciences and should know within the next few weeks if I was accepted. Seeing as I have been SO out of the loop in virtual life I am offering up a gift of restitution. I am holding a drawing through Rafflecopter for a Mary Kay Satin Hands Set retailed at $34 just check out this link: to add your name to the hat!

Focus on Change

Wow, where has the time gone. I have been reading other blogs, I have been working on my diet, and even working on my physical activity since Christmas but it has been FOREVER since I have gotten on here and wrote anything. Apparently I am not a very good blogger, but I enjoy it and my stuff isn't too bad when I actually do it.  (•‿•)

Well, I might as well start from the "beginning". I've realized that I have been totally focusing on results and not being the best at trying to change my actually habits and thoughts. I decided that this needed to change! I got on Facebook {don't we all anymore?} and I made a group of friends who I knew were also interested in getting healthier and losing weight. I try to post at least once a day some sort of inspirational photo, status, or combination there of to help not only them, but myself at making it through rough patches and to stay motivated. A friend introduced me to Biggest Loser online and they have little challenges and such that you do. It was here that I found an idea that I have taken on and am making a habit. Every time I go into a restroom I take the time to do 10 squats while I am there {do this inside the stall unless you want to look a little funny}. It has worked out great! I am looking at adding a new habit soon and have thought about doing 20 jumping jacks when I first get out of bed {or something like that, holler if you have any good ideas}. I have also really tried to focus on the foods that I eat, not only am I trying to eat fewer calories, but I am really honing in on good food choices and then I will later spend more time focusing in on the calorie intake versus usage. I am eating lest white carbohydrates and am trying to eat more whole grains. I have learned that I really enjoy quinoa, barley, and wheatberries when they are prepared properly.  

I really feel good about what I have been doing and where these steps will take me. Still, my greatest downfall is still sweets!! I am consistently having urges to eat ice cream, chocolate, and desserts with fruits. I  know that as I get stronger in the habits that I am currently working on and as I chip away at my desire for desserts that I will be able to achieve that which seems impossible now.

My first "eat day", hurray!

Last night I ran through the Taco Bell drive-throu to get my husband some dinner and on my way home the wafting smells of his dinner were SO tempting and I don't even really like what he orders! Taco Bell has always been my favourite fast food restaurant and it's become the one thing I crave the most when I am starving, drinking alcohol, or what I always respond with when my husband makes me decide where we are going to eat. But do not worry, I resisted eating even a bite of his food and it was a little difficult.

The last few days the chefs have been making special dishes for the few people who have been working this week at it has been so hard to pass up on creamy-homemade alfredo (my favourite pasta) and Asian bbq london broil with yakisoba and salad with cranberry vinaigrette (one of my favourite dressings) the last two days. I am so excited to see what they have prepared for us tomorrow {my stomach trembles with anticipation!}.

I weighed in this morning at 165.4 lbs making for a grand total of 4.6 lbs lost!

All Over Again

I stepped on the scale last night and I was horrified at the numbers I read, it had been weeks since I had stepped on a scale and I had made very poor diet choices. I am currently at my heaviest ever; 170 lbs {only 1 lb more than my previous high, but nonetheless depressing}. With the strongest of determination I am starting off good. All this week I am still working despite the fact that there is no school because there are still lots of things done, but seeing as there are no students that means there are little to no food distractions. {Hurrah!}
