This semester has been FLYING. I have so busy making sure I stay on top of homework and such, that I really have not had much time to blogged. A part of the reason is I just haven’t had much to say either. My motivation to exercise has been kind of up and down with the Maine winter, and my eating has been fairly the same. I am finally no longer bouncing back and forth between 187 – 190. I am now bouncing between 183 – 185, but that shows progress! So at least there is that.
I am really excited for this Spring Break… because I am actually going to go somewhere for Spring break. That never happens! The husband and I bought plane tickets to go back out to California, the beautiful sunshine state… because that is just what I need. Also, to be reunited with one of my best friends. I really cannot put into words on how pumped I am about all this. We plan on hitting up Disneyland, the San Diego Zoo, and Sea World. I also have plans to get a little hands on experience with dolphins! Say what? Yes. Dolphins. I am going to touch a dolphin. I so cannot wait. I have been a huge marine life fan since I was an infant. I even have a dolphin tattoo on my ankle. Yes, I am one of those girls. I also will get to see my first live Orca whale. Now, I am a little torn on this because… I really do not like the fact that the whales are in captivity. Though my husband did bring up a good point “would you visit a friend in jail?” And the answer of course was yes. So I am going to be visiting my Orca prison pals.
(And someday, just someday, I may break them free). I am having hard concentrating this week because my mind is so ready for vacation.
This picture was taken last May… and I cannot believe how much I have changed since then. I am 40 pounds lighter than I was in this picture! 40 pounds lighter now! I really cannot wait to take some comparison photos so you guys can see the changes too!
Right now I am maintaining an A average in all my classes, though Biology is proving to be challenging. I am currently hanging in there at an A-. I know, that is still fantastic.. but I really need to keep my grades up high to make sure I am competitive enough to get into an internship after I graduate. It’s a really competitive field! So that is a reason for my lack of posts as well. I am hoping as I get my mindset back into the game, I will post more. I have my most success when I put my story out there.
My goal currently is to try to lose 2 pounds this week to try to get as close to 180 – 179 as I can. Then I want to be down to 175 by the end of March, and then be down to 165 by the beginning/middle of May. I know I can do this!
What are your goals for Spring?
