College Girl Being Healthier

Well, if you haven't figured it out, I'm a college girl and I'm trying to get healthier. When I get out of college I'll be working in the industry of HEALTH so I have to practice what I preach!

<----This is what I'm craving right, so, so badly. I wish I had some dark chocolate chips in the house but they've been sold out of the grocery store for weeks. :
And I love fruit, but it just doesn't curb my chocolate cravings.
I'm waiting on my little mini pizzas to be done. They look yummy. An english muffin w/ sauce, garlic, basil, oregano, black beans, green peppers & low sodium mozzarella. Yumm

Motivational Quotes

"Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you that yells "CAN'T!" But you don't listen. You just push harder. And then you hear the voice whisper "can." And you discover that the person you though you were is no match for the one you really are." -Unknown

"You block your dream when you allow fear to grow bigger than your faith." -Mary Manin Morrissey

"Many of life's failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." -Thomas Edison

"Those who believe they can do something will find a way; those who don't will find an excuse." -Unknown

"Rather than aiming for being perfect, just aim to be a little better today than you were yesterday." -Unknown

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice your gift." -Steve Prefontaine

About Me

So I guess a good introduction would be telling you about myself. I'm 22 years old and live in NC and am a senior in college. I'm getting a double major in Nutrition and Psychology with a minor in Sociology. Basically, I was only majoring in Psych and minoring in Soc...couldn't find a job I actually wanted to do so I tacked on the Nutrition major. It's something I want to do and am so interested in. When I finish school (next december) I'll go through about a year long dietetic internship then sit for my RD (Registered Dietitian) exam. So, as you can see I HAVE to be healthier and be fit so my clients will take me seriously.

I love to work out and I love eating good, healthy food. However, I also love to be lazy and to eat sweets. Chocolate...that would be my biggest downfall. I've always been a sweets person. I could care less about fried foods, fast foods, and salty snacks like chips...but sweets? I've never been able to give it up.

Recently (december 2010) I finally was able to give up drinking soda every day! Woo! I have it every few weeks when I'm really craving it and then I don't want anymore for a while. I'm very proud of that.

Right now I'm on a P90X program. I love it. But I hate it. :) Some things are harder than others so I'm working on doing better. Right now I'm slacking on phase 1, so phase 2 I'm going to push harder. I like to run. Every month I do a 5k with my good friend/running partner (Becky) and she motivates me so much. I can honestly say she's one of my best friends because she motivates me to push harder, do better, be stronger, and just strive to be a better person.

My idea for this blog is to post my ups and downs, motivational pieces, anything that will help me and any of my readers.

PS: My goal is to lose 30 pounds and look lean. I don't want to be skinny, I want to be FIT!
