Back in Business

Well, petition got DENIED!! Sad day. Very sad day actually, but I'm going to try to make it a good thing. It was denied because they want to keep students as close to 140 credits at graduation as possible, apparently, and I would be well over that limit. Personally, I don't agree with it but whatever! I can't change it now. So I am back to being a business major. I'm very confused at what I'm doing with my life. I'm trying to figure it out. Thank goodness I have two weeks vacation. Also, I have really until Fall semester until I'll really be in trouble if I don't know what I'm doing. No matter what, I would be taking IBC this next semester so I'm continuing with that and hopefully have things figured out by Fall. Pray for me! Please and thank you! See you in TWO WEEKS!!!! YAY!!!

New Motivation

This will be a quick entry, but I am happy to say that the Biggest Loser is officially over! I didn't win, but it's okay, I still lost weight and two sizes! Yay! I've been looking back at some old pictures of me and I didn't realize how big of a change I've made, physically and emotionally. (I'd show my before and after pictures...but that might be a little inappropriate haha) I was thinking about how I felt in each of the pictures compared to how I feel now and that is a huge difference. I used to feel so tired and lazy all the time but now I feel so much more energized and happy! I love it!

So I was very nervous that once the competition ended I would give up since I had nothing to look forward to. I let that happen on Saturday. I didn't work out, I ate terribly and I hated how I felt. That one day reminded me of why I was really doing the competition and it was to make me feel better. As much as I was mad at myself on Saturday for what I did and didn't do, it was good to remind myself of my actual goals and that I don't need a competition to stay healthy, I just need to remember how I want to feel about myself. So, I'm back on track. I've been working out and back to healthy eating habits again and I feel great! It's awesome to know that I can still be motivated without money in the back of my head. My ultimate prize is accomplishing something I didn't think I could.

Just to add a little extra for the post here is a picture from the first week of Biggest Loser...
At the beginning of Biggest Loser, I joked that this was the closest I could get to fries for 8 weeks, BUT I think I'm still gonna keep a pretty good distance from them. Just to be safe :) 

Oh! p.s. I just want to say thank you to everyone who helped keep me motivated and encouraged through this whole process! I hope I have helped all of you as much as you have helped me.
