On January 1st I declared: January diet? Nope, I bought bigger clothes. Skipping a diet does not mean that I’m not concerned about my health or fitness. I’m just no longer fixated on being “skinny.” More specifically, I’m not interested in targeting a number on a scale that requires me to diet year-long to stay there. ...more

Ok, I'm proud of myself. So far I've accomplished what I set out to do today. I didn't make it to the gym before class, sooo I decided to skip class and let myself sleep late. Then I went to the gym, burned about 300 calories on the treadmill, did a few sets on the ab machine, amd little work on the arms with 8lb free weights. Next I took a nice long shower, even used some body lotion afterwards. Well, all that workin-out and showing kept me busy til 1:30pm, so I was too late to eat lunch with my friend, which meant I had to head to the dreaded commons all by myself.
