New Years Resolution in July.

guess I'm starting my New Year's resolution a little late.
You know which one I'm talking about...

The obvious, "hey, I want to lose weight!" resolution. 

You see, I've never been the skinniest of girls, and it used to really bother me when I was younger but I never had the motivation to do anything about it. I was athletic in high school and I just thought I'd always live my whole life with my thighs touching because that's how it's always been. 

Here lately, I've gotten very comfortable in my skin. I was even starting to think, bigger is fine. Bigger is even possibly bigger. And I was okay with that.


The other night I was bored and shoving cookies in my mouth while pinning....(you know, pinterest! my new obsession)....and there were so many motivational things about losing weight. 
I dropped the cookie and got on the treadmill. I have been having troubles staying up until 3 am and having to wake up at 7 to go to work. Not good, right? A little thought came to mind...what if I run a little bit, I'm sure I'll get sleepy!
So yeah....treadmill. I ran/walked for 30 minutes. It felt good. It wasn't overwhelming at all. 
I got off and "oh what the hell, I'm going to get on the scale." 

How did this happen?!
Granted, I haven't been on a scale since high school and I'm now a senior in college! (well, I'm graduating in 3 years instead of 4, but STILL!) 
Needless to say, I'm embarrassed about this number I saw. It was definitely not a good number. And I'm still in shock.

And I've been on the treadmill every day since. 
But, with my lifestyle I didn't think that was enough.

So today I've decided to take another step. 
This is so totally out of my element, so I understand if you stopped reading way back at the beginning lol! 
But anyways, I joined Weight Watchers. 
I don't really understand it. It's a lot of points this points that. But I think it will make sense once I start eating. 

I just know, that I don't want to be chubby faced anymore and maybe one day, my thighs won't touch. 
I can't even imagine them not touching to be honest. 

Cheers to sticking with it?! 
And if you never hear anything about this again, it will probably because I failed miserably lol! But if it goes well, I'm sure you'll know! 

Happy running! 


  1. good for you! the best thing about weight watchers is supposedly you can eat as much popcorn as you'd like at the movies :)

  2. I think its awesome what you are doing and that you are doing it because it felt GOOD to workout! You really are perfect the way you are but I dont think it is bad to adopt a healthier lifestyle so that we can feel more energized and better about ourselves! Get it girl, I know you can do it:-)

  3. Oh boy. I am awful with diets as well, but stay motivated! Youuu can dooo it!!! I once wanted to try weight watchers and I used this website which has all the basic/generic foods converted into weight watchers points!! It helped a lot when I attempted to start that diet.

    Good luck girl :)
