I hate my weight. I know that it’s all down to too little exercise and my job doesn’t help that. I want to loose it, and I’m determined to do a lot to get there.
Today I weigh around 214 lb and I want to reach my ideal, around 150lb apparently. I also want to get down to a 34 inch waist (4” off now).
There’s going to be quite a few changes to my lifestyle to make this happen. Healthier foods, eating 3 meals a day. I’ll be cycling every couple of days, varying between high intensity hills and speedy uphill cycles. Less carbs, more protein… and push-ups in the morning.
I’ll be tracking my food intake, exercise and weight throughout the next few months and hopefully in the next couple of weeks I’ll have something to report.
Wish me luck.
... so I’m trying not to take too much with me. Most of the stuff is staying in my old room at my parents while I attempt to keep my list pretty spartan when I move to university again.
Wish me luck!
I just realised it’s the start of september and all I could think of doing was freak.
I’m hoping I’m going to be able to fit this in. I did NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) in august so I’d get used to writing every single day and it’s helped quite a bit.
I’m just hoping I’ll have the time. It’s a lot of words, and I’ve got classes and work and all the other things that come about with university. crosses fingers
I started my first podcast when I was fifteen, trying to find something new to enjoy. However, I got a bunch of listeners but my equipment was bad… so I gave it up.
I tried again, but felt demotivated after the first two months. The lack of feedback was one of the reasons.
I realise that something I need is a force that stops me being by myself. There’s only so much I can do on my own that will interest people, and I’ve already thought of something I could fill the gap with. Now is just finding someone local who shares the same thoughts.
So, last night, after a month of planning – I finally did it. I decided to take it gradually, and allowed a whole load of people watching it live to decide how far I went down. Right now, I took it to the clippers – and while I think it’s a little short, it’s ok.
Next time I think I won’t go as short, maybe a #2 or #1 – but all I have to say is that it’s different… but not bad…
Now, how to break it to family…
If you want to, you can see the videos of me taking it all of at http://is.gd/28Bn
You get used to paying someone for ‘gardening’ your hair every couple of months, and I’ve always felt uncomfortable going to barbers.
I want to do this ever since I moved out of my family home and 100 miles away. But I feel like I’d either be disowned from my mother or I’ll hate it and I’ll need to hide my head until it grows back.. But I’ll never know till I try (and make sure my other is far, far away…)
I was a little nervous before going in, but it was fine after it got started.
It’s a little stingy at the start, but it’s not as bad as you might think.
I’m personally happy about it and as it was pretty painless, would do it again and again.
I got an invitation to come to get my blood taken out of me on Wednesday. I can’t wait!
I’ve been wanting to do this for ages and I find it terrible that only 5% of the UK donate blood on a regular basis.
... is much cheaper. If I eat 2 packets of noodles per day and a Chinese supermarket packet of noodles costs 20-40p—that means it will only cost me about £3 a week on food. If this is right, then I’ll save a lot of money which means a lot more money I can spend on games and other things! Yay!
By the state of my room right now, I can probably guess I wouldn’t be such a good minimalist.
as last year I hardly read any books (I think the final count was 3). I’m having to kick myself back in order as I haven’t even started reading a book this month – so I’ve got 10 days to do it. I think it’s possible.
Another reason was after my uncle passed away he gave me many many books and I wanted to honour him by getting through every single one.
It’s better than watching TV I guess – although it will be difficult to make me stop watching the X-Files every afternoon!
... even back in the day. I still have Sega Master System II games I haven’t completed. It’s sad. I want to know the stories, I want to truly thank the developers who put in all of the work into each title I game by finishing the storyline.
I may not do every single side-quest, but as long as I finish the main storyline – my thirst will be quenched.
I still want to do this, but it either seems like the hospitals don’t want my blood or they can’t be bothered emailing me. People tell me it’s a pain but I know it’ll make someone’s life a lot better at little expense to my own.
Although I know it’ll give me a whole load more freedom – I just can’t afford it. The price of the lessons, of the car, of the insurance, the MOT and the fuel – no way.
I’m sticking to cyclying.
I’ve normally been alright with a lack of dental hygene, as while the rest of my family got cavities I was safe with none. While I still don’t have any, the dentist is warning me that my teeth are getting progressively worse – and I started brushing more.
It’s been great, and although a bit of a pain sometimes it’s made my teeth brighter and a lot nicer to be around.
I moved out of my home in September and it’s been great! I didn’t feel homesick, and met a whole load of different people. It’s a strange but gratifing experience and i’d definitely recommend it.
Went down to the Job Centre in the hopes of finding some sort of work, unfortunately I can’t seem to find anything.
I may have some uber temporary work but it’s just some web design stuff – at least it pays well.
I did this a few months ago and it’s really opened things up for me , and somehow made me feel more confident about myself.
