77Maria's Life List
How I did it: I did one or two boxes a week so I could balance unpacking with everything else. Also bought a huge book case and two filing cabinets which helped a great deal. Unpacking requires that you organize. Read how I did it…
How I did it: I found voter registration forms online at both google maps and the local city hall Website, but I also found them at school, so I just picked one up there and started to fill it out. However, I didn't realize that I needed 1. a stamp and 2. the address for the city's registrar of voters.Since I just moved, I don't have a local telephone book, so I went back online to get the address and finally mailed it in yesterday. Whew. It was just i… Read how I did it…
How I did it: I was the first in my working class family to finish college. To get good grades in high school, I skipped almost everything but school work, extracurriculars, and a part-time job (so I could buy new clothes and makeup, girlie stuff).I spent four hours a night on homework and did every extra credit assignment I could squeeze in.

Once again, muscles hurt so much because I worked out too hard.
I ran 5 miles in one hour
- slow to some people - but good for me. Just three months ago, my cardio fitness had slipped so much I couldn’t run for 10 minutes straight. So I’m delighted.
I’ve lost about 9 pounds since January, but I’m not working out every single day.
I don’t mind rest days but this is day II and my muscles still hurt. My next goal is to reduce caloric intake.
I’m one of those people who can inhale a box of ice cream in one sitting, so it’s important.
Weight steady after dropping two pounds two weeks ago—annoying.
But I’ve got so much work and stress that workouts have not been regular.
I’ll never make progress either unless I cut back on unnecessary calories. Calories are fuel
- you just should take in what you need - no need for extra.
To help me focus on my goal I wrote 99 on my left wrist. I’m at 130.
My goal is to weigh 99 pounds by August. That should be relatively slow and steady weight loss while keeping my energy up.
I also have cut eggs out of my diet—no meat, no fish, no eggs.
Next on the list to cut: flour and cheese.
To keep up my protein, I picked up a can of brewer’s yeast. This stuff tastes delicious and has 17 grams of protein in a couple of tablespoons. You sprinkle it on salad or mix it in water or juice. Love it.
I also drink Bragg Amino to make sure I have all the amino acids I need as I move closer to veganism. Awesome.
