Best Friends Forever: Jennifer Weiner

>> October 2, 2010

I have a thing for Jennifer Weiner books. I have to be in the mood, that girly, la-di-da... almost like a summery feeling to read them, but I like them.

The latest one I read when we went camping last month, its called Best Friends Forever

The book is about two former best friends, that I had sort of, lost their friendship at the end of high school. It's been 10 years since then, and when some crazy stuff goes down at their reunion, they are able to find their way to each other, and to the friendship they once had.






I really liked it. Y'all should check it out.

Week 2: Being healthy is hard.

>> September 27, 2010

This last week, I had every intention of being healthier, of being better.

I failed :/


(but I also didn't gain any weight.. so it wasn't a complete fail, right? 

I didn't lose any either... ) 



The goals.. revisited:

  • I drank more water, but I think I also drank more caffeine. Maybe I just drank more overall. It was a thirsty week? That doesn't make much sense now does it. 
  • I did continue to eat out. But I have excuses! (like that makes it better... ) it's been a crazy week with issues everywhere I look, not leaving a lot of time for home-cooked, pre-prepared meals. But I feel like I did better. I was trying to at least pay attention to what I was eating again. Instead of just ordering what sounded good. 
  • I did the 30 Day Shred, once. The goal was to do it twice, so at least I get a half point there, right? 
  •  The 20 sit ups... I DID do. But it about killed me.  

IN MY DEFENSE... I have been feeling sick, achy, nauseous, headaches, and now I feel a sore throat coming on. Why must I always feel yucky when the seasons change? I know, I know, its the changing temperatures or something. {does that mean now that they have the temperatures more regulated at work, that I could stop dying freezing, and getting sick?}


So this weeks Goals, are going to be the same.

  • DRINK WATER! I really need to start filling up my giant water mug as soon as I get to work; as well as soon as I go downstairs to do homework / blogging at night. I drink what's convenient, I just need to remember to make water what IS convenient for me.
  • EAT OUT LESS! I am determined this week to write everything I eat down. This way I think I will feel much more. ACCOUNTABLE. I need to Plaaaan my meals, and lunches so that I don't end up running to Taco Bell .. or Cafe Rio for Lunch. I need a plan. Plan. Plan. Plan. (the goal is to plan, in case you didn't follow my subtlety).  I also want to try one new healthy recipe this week. Any suggestions? ;)
  • 30 DAY SHRED: Let's go for twice this week. As I did once last week, one more time shouldn't be that hard.
  • 20 SIT UPS: I need to feel better about this goal, before I can move on to something else. I was originally thinking that I would do a "fitness goal" like this for a week, but maybe it should be more of a monthly thing. Thoughts? 
 And.. the Couch 2 5K... is again upon the hold shelf. I need to be stronger, more motivated, and have more time to be able to do that. Maybe in the Spring- my school load should be somewhat simpler then.


What do you do to stay motivated?
