I grew up with beautiful, skinny friends. They were all so wonderful. Never once did I feel bullied or tormented for my weight...but I ALWAYS felt like the "fat girl" of the group...not because of anything they did but because of myself. I was pretty active through my adolescents, playing soccer, softball, and volleyball (rec and travel and in school) but despite all that I was still pretty overweight.

I've joined a challenge put on by Jess at Operation Skinny Jeans and I'm determined to not let this opportunity slip by me. I'm notorious for starting something and not finishing it. I don't want that to happen again.
Today is the weekly goal link up at OSJ. So here it goes.
I'm one for saying...tomorrow I will start exercising...not today...but tomorrow! You know what never works?? Saying "I'll do it tomorrow". Tonight, I will go out and start my C25K. No excuses.
In October of last year I gave up all soda and sweet tea. I was a diet soda drinker so no extra calories but I was filling my body with so much other garbage that are in sodas. I decided enough was enough. I was definitely "addicted". The headaches from not having my 3 or 4 a day sodas lasted for probably 3 weeks...that's not really normal for everyone.
It's now been 6 months of NO soda. I miss it occasionally because I like the bubbles...but I haven't gone back. I now only drink water...and occasionally add mio. Oh, I do have coffee in the mornings..but I rarely drink a whole cup.
Even though all I drink is water I want to track my consumption by making sure I drink 100 oz (about 4-5 of my tervis cups) of water each day.
I'm pretty bad about scarfing my food down. Like it's going to disappear if I don't shovel it in my mouth. I need to learn to stop, enjoy what I'm eating, and listen to my body when it says it's satisfied. Not clean my plate (despite what my mom told me when I was growing up!!)
I'm linking up y'all! (P.S. it just took me a good 30 or so minutes to figure out how to put this clickable picture in my blog....haha!!)
Have a great week y'all. I will try to come back and update about the house, we painted our master bedroom yesterday!!
