New Year Resolutions

I am a big "list person" I make a list for everything!!! Whenever I make a list I am bound and determined to finish it quickly and efficiently. I have made a list of some things I am going to do this year:

1. No carbonation for 11 months (You might say why 11 months and not a full year.... well I need something to look forward to in December)

2. Brush teeth twice daily (Now this may seem a little gross but sometimes when I am really tired at night I just forget. I am just going to make it a solid habit)

3. Wake up at 5:00 AM every morning (You may be thinking 5:00 AM!!!! CRAZY!! Well I am a morning person and do better when I wake up early and I heard that you if wake up at the same time every single day your body is healthier)

4. Work out at least 30 minutes a day 6 days a week (30 minutes should not be a super hard goal to hit)

5. No more Chai Tea (Since I turned 18 almost 7 years ago I became fond of Chai Tea. Chai tea contains a lot of calories and caffeine and that is why I am not going to drink it anymore.)

6. Have a treat on Sunday only. (I have a sweet tooth and love all cookies and brownies so to give those things up completely would just about kill me so I am going to limit my self to Sunday's. This does not mean the only think I will eat on Sunday is sugar but that will be the day that if I want to make brownies for my beehives (for all non-LDS friends a beehive is a 12-13 year old girl) I will eat a brownie that day)

7. Track Calories daily.

8. Make Lunches and eat less fast food!

Well there you have it, my 2014 resolutions!

Trying out this blog thing one more time...... Weight Loss

I have a problem keeping a blog... I also have a problem loosing weight.  I have heard that trying to loose weight on my own is not the best way to go about it, and that I should probably get people involved to help motivate me! SO...... although this might be embarrassing for me I hope that I can receive help and encouragement along my 2014 journey!! I will be posting pictures and (I am not sure if I am brave enough to post my weight yet) I will also be talking about some of the work outs I am attempting and the food I am eating! This will be a long journey and I hope that I can kill two birds with one stone .... blogging.... and weight loss! The next post will be a before picture...... (I am a little nervous to show it but I will soon get over it)
