It's been a while since my last blog. How was everybody's Christmas and New Years? Christmas was great and New Years was wonderful. I'm so happy to have made it to 2013. I plan to make this year all about me and doing what's best and right for me. No more doing for others. It's Erica time!
With that said I'm so excited and I just can't hide! I have reached my goal weight of 150 lbs and it feels so freaking good! It took me a long time to get to this moment but by the grace of God, my RNY, and help from my family and friends I have accomplished my goal. It feels so good to be able to fit a size 8 pants/jeans and a size s/m top. it feels absolutely great!
Now that I have reached the goal my doctor set for me I think I'm going to reset my goal. I want to be at a healthy BMI and in order for me to achieve it I must weigh at least 135 lbs. That's 15 more lbs for me to lose. I want to be at 135 lb before August 7 th which is me and my sister birthday. I think I can do it. It's only 8 months away which is far off but I know I can accomplish it. Look how far I've come so far.
I started 2013 on a new health kick. I'm trying to drink more water and get more protein. I'm also going to try to take my vitamins regularly since I rarely take them now. Yea I know, I know vitamins are important. I'm not going to lie a girl be forgetting about those darn vitamins. I'm also going to introduce new exercises into my workouts. Zumba has becoming boring to me and walking the treadmill has too. Plus I live in Ohio and it's too darn cold to be hitting up a track or walking out side right now. I signed my family and I up to the local YMCA and there are few classes that I'm thinking about trying.
I also resigned up for classes at Cleveland State since I took the summer and fall semesters off. I also changed my major because I don't think I'm cut out to be a teacher. I know me and hard headed kids is just not my thing. I am not trying to go to jail for spanking somebody's kids or putting my foot in parents rump who thinks their kid is too good to be bad. Nope not me. I don't deal well with blatant disrespect. I don't tolerate it from my own kids and I be damn if I'm going to tolerate it from someone else's kid. So, I change my major to Social Work. It's going to take me less time then my Education degree would have taken me. Only 4 more semesters including summers and I'm done. Then it's on to a masters degree in Social Work.
Life has been wonderful for me. I wish everyone as much success as I have had. Smooches!!!
