The Hunger Games

Some of you may have noticed that I have become slightly obsessed with The Hunger Games. I like it so much better than Twilight,(I can hear the gasps) and you all know how much I liked that series. I've decided this..

Twilight = slight crush. I liked the movies for what they were,but a lot of the dialogue from the book just did not work and came across cheesy.

The Hunger Games = wove..twu wove! (Princess Bride moment)

 Josh = Peeta

Jennifer = Katniss

The Hunger Games movie = awesome adaptation!

So cute...makes me smile every time I see it.

Me..and skinnier me

I've been going to Zumba classes off and on for the past year. In the last few months,I've worked out 3-4 times a week. I've been using the weight watchers diary app on my phone to keep track of my points. I'm proud to say that I have lost 25 pounds! I made that goal yesterday and a sheer feeling of euphoria hit me when I stepped on my scale! I haven't been at this weight for almost 2 years. It's so exciting and motivating! I've also been measuring my body for inches lost. As of right now I've lost 3 inches on my hips and 3 inches on my waist. :) I've made mini goals of 10 pounds at a time,all leading up to my goal of losing 80 pounds total.

I also have 2 other goals...

-exercising at least 4 times a week

-staying within my points range

 So far I think I have done really well. I have my cheat days and an off day now and again,but I haven't felt this good and motivated for a long time. When I look at the before pictures,I'm overwhelmed at the changes I see in my body.

BEFORE - This was taken 5 years ago.

AFTER - this was taken yesterday.
I still have a ways to go but it's all about baby steps,right?

It's been a loooong time..

...since I blogged. I don't know why I stopped posting as often. Oh,wait...yes I do. I figure I post enough of my life on facebook that no one probably wants to read about it here too. I know I'm going to regret not having posts from the last few months,since I plan to make a book of my posts one day. So I'm going to start blogging again. For the 2 people who still read my blog,I hope you enjoy having actual posts to read.
