So it’s been a month.

And I’ve done nothing.

Apparently I need some sort of accountability program that’ll help me.

Anybody wanna have weekly check-ins with me? :/

I don’t even wanna get on the scale but I gotta to see my new starting point. :(

I’m getting back on track.

It’s this whole New Year thing.

Normally I believe that you don’t have to wait until the new year to start chagne something, but it feels like a fresh start.

So! You can all look forward to:

  • Weekly Wednesday Weigh-ins
  • Work-out updates
  • Possible progress photos

Also, add me as a friend on MyFitnessPal. I’m Slimcanuck.

Because by this summer, I’ll be in a bikini! (AND LOOK AWESOME)

I’ve posted this as a question before, but this is one of the major things we need in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
Between school, sports, jobs, assignments and trying to have a social life, the first thing we sacrifice is SLEEP. The truth is, our bodies need sleep like a fish needs water.
Sleep helps consolidate your memories so that you have a bank of information and experience when      you need it. So, no matter how hard you study, how much you try retain all      that information, you still need to sleep to let your brain process all that      information you’ve gathered. 
Sleep also helps maintain your metabolism, essential for weightloss. Have you noticed that when you don’t      get enough sleep, you tend to crave carbs and sugar more? If you’re trying      to loose weight, healthy sleep is ESENTIAL to helping curb those sugar      cravings, preventing you from loosing that weight. 
If that isn’t enough, during      sleep, skin makes new cells twice as fast as when youre awake, repairing the environmental damage and healing      acne blemishes.
