The new year came and went, I barely stayed awake for midnight myself! One of my resolutions was to eat better and lose some weight. That resolution really became a need when I saw myself in some Christmas pictures, wow! So here we go, it is day four (I procrastinated starting my diet!) and so far I am down just two pounds but I feel confident that I can do better in the coming weeks. The plan is to try to post here as we go to keep myself accountable.
I would really like to lose at least 50 pounds by August, that is when I will be starting clinicals in Nursing school and our uniforms are all white… I will be nervous enough without having to get a HUGE white uniform that shows all my flaws!
One of my first steps is drinking more water- like any water is a change… I am horrible at drinking water usually. After four days of making sure I drink at least 60 ounces of water a day I am noticing that my skin is clearer and I am less itchy, and I am running to the bathroom like I am pregnant again but I am sure my body will adjust to actually being hydrated soon!
Stay tuned for updates and more pictures along the way, if you would like to join me in my journey let me know, I will be happy to add a link you your blog in future updates! Here we go!
