A girls got to have goals!

I have a few of them  for this month:

  • To modify my eating habits even more than I have. I bought myself a scale and have a meal plan, so all I need to do is get to it. I start tomorrow. I have an up and coming trip to Vegas, so managing my eating will be a challenge but, I am sure with Myfitnesspal and some restraint, I will be able to do good when it comes to food. I would like to see where I am at in 5 weeks.
  • To do 2 unassisted pull ups. Usually I need someone to help me get up there, but I am sure if I try my best I can get er done and feel like A BOSS!
  • To have better form when squatting with the bar. As I progress with my workouts, I am starting to do more, and I want to have the perfect form. I posted a video on IG of me squatting, and it was great, but I want to do better!

Sidenote: I would like to report, that I am on the verge of buying new clothes. My pants for work and leisure are all getting to be too big, and it shows. I wore some Skinny Jeans that were so tight at this time last year and now, they are baggy in the front and butt area. They also sag a little bit. This is not only exciting, but It lets me know, even if I do not feel the physical change, nor see it, it’s certainly happening. I hope that little side note motivates someone to keep going! Don’t stop! Results come if you put in the work and dedication!

 

 

Do you have monthly, or annual goals? What steps are you taking to achieve them? 

Weekend Recap

I had a very interesting weekend,

I started out the weekend taking the hardest test I have ever encountered, the GMAT. It was a doozy. All in all I will have to take it again, and from what I hear, I won’t be the 1st nor the last to take this path. Ouch, that is the 1st test I have failed miserably like that. I tend to pride myself in my smarts, but this test, well it outsmarted me. I am use to direct questions that have direct answers and this test is far from that, and on top of that it is adaptive, meaning, it adapts to give you a harder or easier question, based on if you get an answer right or wrong.

Cute right?!

Well, after that downer, I decided to regroup, and have a drink :-), a margarita, and go shopping at TJ Maxx. I bought a snazzy new sling purse, and some workout gear. I bought some nice shorts, and a sports bra.. I have an up and coming session with this guy who has a gym in his garage and he trains people in there. This should be fun. #GarageFit is what he calls it. I’m looking for a challenge and a trainer, so why not!

I ended the day by going to the beach with my friends and dog, and it was excellent watching the sun set. My dog also made a new doggie friend, Pepper, and learned that when it comes to food, he might get snapped at. Which is hilarious!

Sunday I slept until about 11ish and some friends called and we went to Kona Grill and did a little shopping at the mall. It was nice! I bought a necklace and a “Tom Boy” sleep set from Forever21. At Kona, the sushi was great as usual, and the Pot Stickers were yummy! I also learned, that I am not much of a drinker anymore. I haven’t drank really until this weekend, and one margarita, and a glass of wine made me very sleepy! I went home and slept for 2 hours straight! My friends called me old! LOL.

I ended my Sunday tweeting about love songs (I was in my feelings lol), watching True Blood, some of the BET awards, and texting a few people.

This week I plan on getting back on my bike, trying out the garage fit stuff, and running a mile to see if my knee is ready for me to hit pavement!

 

How was everyone’s weekend? Anything interesting go on?
