Making 2014 all about me.

Happy New Year everyone! I know I've been mia for the last month or so but as I mentioned in my last post - working two jobs nearly everyday has me super busy as of late!

That being said, I'm going to start making more time for me. I deserve to have the things I want for myself and if I don't make them happen, no one else will. I'm going to find that little bit of time each day to workout and blog as much as possible about my daily ups and downs. Its what really worked for me in the past and nothing else has really gotten me very far between now and then. I did lose about 25 lbs last year but I'm nowhere near where I want to be yet. I just turned 28 and I want to make the most of the next couple years before I hit my 30s. I feel being at a healthy and happy weight is going to be a major influence on how I spend that time.

As of January 1st I finally decided that nothing was going to get in my way, including myself, so I put my money where my mouth is and became a Beach Body coach and signed myself up for the P90x3 challenge pack. I even paid extra to have it shipped as quick as possible. Hoping it makes it here in the next day or so. :)

In the mean time I have been upping my water intake, decreasing the sodas - diet or otherwise, not giving in to every temptation (admittedly in to more than I should have though), and remembering to think about everything I put in to my body. I also started the 30 day shred again on Wednesday with my 5lb dumbbells. Yesterday I only had a short time before work so I did 10 minutes of various weight exercises with my 10 lb dumbbells. I figured some workout was better than none and today I just finished doing another 30 day shred in between jobs. I'm about to have to head in to the 2nd one in a few minutes...

Over the next couple days, since I only work one of my jobs on the weekends, I'm going to do some more research in to what exactly it means now that I'm a BB coach(besides the discounted shakeology, YUM!), and also get logged back in to MFP and start tracking foods again.

I did take new pictures and measurements on the 1st but haven't had a chance to get themoff my camera yet. I'm sure I'll have those up tomorrow though.

Wish me luck guys, I hope you all find success and happiness in 2014 as well! <3 p="">
