Huuuuge Update

Monday, April 07, 2014

So that last blog about being semi back was clearly a load of horsewash. I'm at school - I figure I should be keeping my language clean.

Let's see. That dude I mentioned? In the last blog? That was all casual and whatever? Yeah. Moving in with him next weekend. INSANE, RIGHT?! Man. How time flies. I'm super happy with him and all that jazz. This being said... there's been a few pounds put on. And let's just say, I still don't love the flab going all flabby all over bed. emoticon

I also got a second job. So that's keep me mass busy.

Let's see. What's coming up?

APRIL - Next week is Spring Break. I'll have a couple days of unpacking, then home to California, where the man will join me a couple of days later and meet the parents. OH MAN. This is all just nutty. Big week.

MAY - Nothing too exciting, so I can really spend that time concentrating on me.

JUNE - End of school! Whoo! We got our school year extended a teeny bit - so that's the way that goes. Plus a short trip to Iowa to attend my godmother's funeral.

JULY - Go to Michigan to meet his family. OH MAN. Oy. This will be a slightly longer trip than his to California. So I'll be meeting a whole lot of people.

AUGUST - Florida! The trip is a mix of things. The bulk of it is for his birthday, but I'm doing a trip for him, so we can have some time away, just the two of us with no responsibilities (or very few) and I can have a short vacation before I start school again.

I'm at the same school next year. Don't get me started. I'm just going to go with it and hope for the best.

Now, with all of these trips coming up, I would really like to feel better about where I'm at in my fitter/healthier journey and so need to hold myself a teeny tiny bit more accountable.

I made a general list of goals, really just back to the basics. So I'll have my basics and then have one major goal a month, so I give myself a month to really work on a habit and once it's a habit, I move onto the next thing.

Basics:
-8 glasses of water/day
-2 cardio workouts/week
-2 bodyweight strength training workouts/week
-Keep calories between 1,300-1,600
-Track it all - even if I "flub up," holding accountable is key :)

April: Work up to 200oz/day
May: Calorie range 1,200-1,500
June: Ramp up the cardio over time to four a week
July: Ramp up the strength training to a personal trainer three times a week (purchased, but the few I've used have been eratic due to snow and schedules, so waiting until I actually can put it to use and learn something from it)

Beyond that, I'll decide which habit I need to return to. I think August will be all about planning, planning, planning. School starts and starting off on the right foot is the way to go.

Ok, so that's that. Let me know if I haven't updated on anything!!! :D

    Morgan! I'm so glad to see you back posting!

    Sounds like you've got a ton going on in your life. Congrats on the relationship with the boy and good luck with the move!

    I've been around, but mostly flying under the radar...just so busy with school and family responsibilities that I'm lucky when I can log in every day. I can't wait until summer vacation...

    I'm so jealous of all your trips planned, they sound wonderful! Don't stress out too much about all the family meeting (on both sides) and just enjoy yourself!!
