First weigh in

Hey bloggies!! :-) So I just got done doing an hour of yoga and in a couple hours I'm off for two hours of swimming so today will be great!! I really like swimming but I get tired really easily :-( but it's fun so I'll keep doing it! Any way, I weighed myself this morning and I weighed 159.6 :-D I haven't weighed 150 something in a long time. So I'm almost down ten pounds!!! So now that that's done lemme tell you a story. So on the last day of school I get told I'm in honors English, I did the over summer assignment and everything was fine. About 11 days before school starts I get a letter that says I'm in ap European history and I have to read "the prince" and answer 40 something questions....WTF!!!???!!? Why tell me now?! Idk, just kinda pissed at school but I'm a fast reader so I'll be ok. I can't wait for school to start, it starts in 9 days!! :-D ah I can't wait, well that's all for now, blog ya later!!

*Update* Sorry

Sorry I haven't been able to post lately, I've been so busy(how I got my blog name) so my first week sucked, I didn't exercise or eat healthy at all and I ended up weighing 168! That's the heaviest I've ever been and it was like a wake up call. So, it's been about 2 weeks since then and guess what?? I weigh 161!! I'm so excited!! Wanna know how I did it?? Okay so I have myfitnesspal and it tracks every thing I eat. I eat 1200 calories a day, I drink more water and I started exercising :-) I have swim practice almost everyday and on days I don't swim, I walk my dog for about an hour. So in 5-6 days I lost 7 pounds!!! So exciting!! Well, this was just a quick update, I promise that next Monday I will definitely weigh in and post!! Thank you for reading, blog ya soon, bye!! :-)

First workout

So the first thing I did was week one of my running program. It wasn't hard at all, It's supposed to ease you into running and it's working great :-D And then there was the workout......It's 30 jumping jacks and 10 crunches. I HATE CRUNCHES!! SO MUCH!!! Felling sore but It's worth, I hope it pays of next monday at my next weigh in. Even losing a pound will be a pound lighter! Well, after doing the jumping jacks I was tired, and hot. I live in washington and it's been over 80 degrees for DAYS! Like come on! It's supposed to be rainy and cold. But I didn't stop, I took a one minute break and drank a s**t ton of ICE COLD WATER!! So refreshing, and then I did crunches. My stomach still hurts but It will be worth it, I know it. Sorry for the short blog, I'm not much of a typer. I'm just hoping that you read my story, enjoy it and it motivates YOU!! So Long, Next blog will probably be on monday :-)

Here's the 12 week running plan I'm doing =)

Some Information

My name is amber. I'm a 15 year old girl in highschool just learning how to drive; and I've been trying to lose weight for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was little I was always just a little more chubby then most girls my age but I didn't pay any attention to that, not till about 3rd grade when my family moved to illinois. I was a very early bloomer and thats when I noticed(well my mom technically) that I needed a training bra. It's also when I noticed that I was quite bigger then most of the other girls. I also started having trouble with gym and running. So speed up to about 5-6 months ago, I decided to go veggie because I love animals. I lost 10 pounds and you could tell! I went from 158 to 148, I was so happy, but that was short lived. I slowly gained it all back, I was devestated and crushed. So speed things up a bit to now. I have tried countless times to start exercising and get healthy but I always gave ml up or quit, but this time it's different. I'm done being the fat girl, I hate being not able to run a mile in less than 12 minutes and I hate not being able to wear alot of cute clothes so I'm changing that. Tomorrow I start exercising. I found a twelve week running program that should get me started, after about four weeks though all start add some circuit workouts so basically this is a blog in making about my weight loss journey, which starts tomorrow. Can't wait!!

Some numbers-
Height-5'2 3/4"
Weight-166 <----the heaviest I've ever been

Well I hope you Gus follow me on this journey, I'd love the support and I'd love to here about your journeys to. Journey begins....................NOW!!!!
