I’m a very impatient person. I start things and, if there are not immediate results, I quit. I have done this with many a diet, many a workout plan, many a project. My family and boyfriend have learned from many an experience that when I say I’m going to do a long term project or diet, that they’ll be happy to believe me once they see the results. Which isn’t often. So I need some help.

I am setting a goal for myself. I want to run the Central Florida Warrior Dash 2012. This run is the weekend of January 21/22. I have 5 months to get in shape, run more, and eat better to prepare for this 3 mile run(I know what you’re thinking, 3 miles? That’s it? And you need to train?? Well let me tell you, I am THAT out of shape). So this is my call to help with my accountability. I need a lot of encouragement and help with this, as like I stated before, I’m not very patient. I want results now. By January, I’m hoping to:

  • Lose 15-20 pounds
  • Eat at least 1 day vegetarian a week.
  • Be able to run 3 miles non-stop

I will update once a week on my progress for anyone who is interested or wants to help me out. Right now, I’ve never eaten vegetarian in my life, so if anyone has any tips or yummy recipes, I’m all ears! Thanks to anyone who helps me through this journey!

About me

I told myself when I started this blog that I would not force myself to write. I would need to feel it and once I felt the urge, I would write what I felt. Not that I think anyone besides my friend A reads this thing, but in case anyone does, that is why I do not write often. I am not a very interesting person, and do not do many interesting things in my life, so I probably will not update on a very regular basis.

I’m not even sure that I’m feeling inspired about anything in particular today, but I feel like writing.

I think today I’ll write a few facts about myself, in case I have more than 1 reader out there

1. My nail polish is ALWAYS chipped.

Without fail, you will always see me with chipped nail polish. For some reason, my nails have a complete aversion to being completely painted. I will paint my nails, and without fail, same day, they will chip. I’m not sure why, but it can be pretty annoying. I always look incomplete.

2. I’m obsessed with cupcakes(well…sweets in general)

Seriously. It’s become a huge problem. I bought a 12 pack of mini cupcakes last Wednesday during my lunch hour(2pm-3pm), they were all gone by 6pm. I did not share. I love cupcakes and love baking. I once even considered going to school to bake. I’ve asked my bosses to cut my lunch to 30 minutes because I get into too much trouble having an hour to go to one of the many cupcake shops around my work.

3. My current job has made me realize what I want my major to be

After close to 4 years in school(I took some time off here and there and wasted a lot of time and money my first few years), I have finally decided on a major and will FINALLY be getting my AA in the fall. I currently work in customer service for a retail company, and working on this end of the job has made me realize that I want to work on the other side. I am now a Marketing major and will be applying to the Marketing program in the Spring. I am hoping to also minor in either Spanish or Advertising. I haven’t decided…

4. I am a child of divorce

And I couldn’t be happier. I’ve never once wished my parents had stayed together, nor have I ever known them together. I feel very blessed to have an amazing step dad as well as an amazing biological dad. I don’t think that people are meant to be together just because they have a child, and I certainly don’t believe it’s always better to stay together for the kids. My parents were 2 people who had a child who didn’t belong together. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

5. I’m not an outdoor person

I’m sorry, but given the choice of hiking or catching up on my DVR, I’m going to choose my DVR 9 times out of 10. I like the beach every so often, though due to my fair skin, I am unable to go to the beach for more than a few hours at a time, and like to go in my pool, but again, usually only outside for about an hour. My idea of “roughing it” is being without cable for a few hours or camping in a pop up camper that has air conditioner and a comfy bed.

So that’s me. I’m sure everything I’ve written here the 1 person who reads my blog already knows, but just in case you stumble across this and you don’t know me, welcome. I’m Sarah-too-boring-for-a-blog.
