Weekly Workout Schedule

Weekly Workout Schedule

So recently… I have decided that I needed to finally start changing my lifestyle (this has nothing to do with a new years resolution… but rather looking back at some photos and going urghh). After doing some research, I decided that the Women’s Health Magazine offered me the best workout regime because of their detailed week-by-week workout plans. (click here to see detailed daily workout plans)

Some things that I’ve concluded will affect my goal to lose weight and live healthier:

1. Myself, I am always my worst enemy.

2. Cravings

3. The IUD. I have heard a lot of women complain about gaining weight and being unable to lose weight while using the IUD. I have noticed quite a bit of bloating since the IUD was inserted a year and a half ago.. I am hoping to disprove that the bloating is IUD related and that a healthier lifestyle will reduce or rid of the bloating.

Some Personal Information About Me:

Gender: Female

Age: 22

Height: 5’7 or 5’8

Weight Week 1: 165

Goal Weight (To be re-assessed later): 145

Wish me Luck!

Itsy Bitsy Spider..

I should have adopted a cat. They are furry, cute, and most importantly they eat spiders. I would not necessarily classify myself as a person who has an irrational fear of spiders; however, I have woken up from a dead sleep truly believing that spiders were crawling all over my face and body. I have also found myself trapped in the bathroom while a spider foe attacks me and takes claim to the tiled floor. In these situations, luckily, Trevor has come to my rescue and killed the giant spider before it could sink its vampiric teeth into my flesh. Unfortunately, it was also my fear of spiders that  led to his unhappy discovery that, in fact, girls do poop (He chose to believe girls “magically” did not). For couples everywhere, I would not recommend this method to overcome relationship barriers.

The Apple Man

“I can not date you if you do not get an iPhone!”

I should have known that it would not have stopped at the iPhone. But hey, we’ve all been there once; the puppy dog stage of every new relationship that lowers walls and clouds our judgement. Nevertheless, we worked out our differences, and an apple invasion soon became to take place in my tiny apartment. I should have known, it was inevitable. So why am I still surprised? A year later…. It is early September, and Trevor is accompanying  me to meet my parents for dinner. We have not seen each other in a week, and I am pretty excited for Trevor to be the first interest that I have ever had accompany me to my parents place. I notice that Trevor does not seem to share my excitement, and is constantly distracted by his iPad. Eventually, I speak up and point out to Trevor that he is being rude and should save his texting for later.

“This has to be done now, are you getting the iPhone 5C?” he says.

Oh no.. the dreaded Apple subject. There is no escaping it. I know what he wants to hear… but I still can not give him the answer he wants. The problem is that I will be away from home during the release of the new iPhone, and I was not excited at the thought of being phone-less for a month. Unfortunately… my parents got their first introduction to Trevor’s extreme loyalty to the iPhone, as he let his discontentment become known. Apparently, I couldn’t just own an iPhone, I had to also be diligent about upgrading it to the most current iPhone. My bank account hurts. The conversation has become awkward. Hide Me. Continue reading
