New Workout Plan

Okay. You all hate me, I know. I did the unthinkable and stopped blogging for a total of...3 months and a couple of days. But if you guys will still have me, I'm back.

So, why did I leave?

A few reasons.

1. My job was making me seriously tired. Between working and making college plans and trying to spend time with my friends and my boss being all up my ass, I couldn't possibly have enough time to be on the computer. Through this, I realized that I was not making enough time for myself. And next summer, I am determined not to take a job, because it's not necessary yet (I'm only 18!!!) and it's not worth the mental stress my boss puts me through. The money was good, but I couldn't deal with the pressure.

2. I was out of speed. I hated telling all of you how terrible I was doing. Last summer, I had all these plans and it was embarrassing to admit that none of them went smoothly.

What I Learned...

1. The Freshman 15? Myth. I don't know how much weight I've lost because the scale at the gym at school sucks and is broken and they haven't fixed it. But every time I come home, everyone notices that I've lost weight. I've been eating semi-healthy and up until this week (midterms) have been exercising a lot. I have this awesome roommate that loves to work out, so I'm constantly reminded to go to the gym.

2. I need you guys. A lot. A support system is huge and I'm not comfortable enough yet with my friends here to tell them how much I NEED their support to lose weight. And even when I am comfortable enough with them, they won't completely understand the way you guys always have. And I'm sorry that it took me 3 months to figure that out.

I've learned a lot more, but you'll probably come to see that as I post more often. Basically, I'm back. And I would love it if you guys could forgive me and continue to support me the way you always did.

Here's the food I've eaten.

Tater Tots
2 strips of turkey bacon
Yogurt with granola

Chicken burrito
A LOT of fruit.

I'm about to go grab a power bar before I go to the gym.
And, of course, water.
Slice of whole wheat bread with a slice of turkey and a slice of cheese.

Elliptical, then bike, then elliptical for a total of 400 calories.
100 Leg Presses
20 Leg Lifts

In the meantime, if anyone has workout songs that they'd like to share, please post them up! The internet has been useless in this effect.

Thank you guys so much and I look forward to hearing from you and to looking at all your blogs as soon as I'm back from the gym.
