Its NOT About The Weight! Its NOT A Diet!

  So I have had some spectators saying that its not healthy for me to be weighing myself everyday. But I was only doing that to see how the 'Juicing' working. Anyway, I am not really even worried about my weight. Its way more about my health. I could weigh 160 instead of 150 and those extra 10lbs could be muscle because I am so healthy. And the juicing(I'm not doing it anymore) wasn't a diet. I was a "Reboot". I just wanted to get the the bad stuff out my system, and it worked.
 Anyways......, I am very excited to be going Strong4Life Post-Family Weekend on Friday. Its going to be so much fun. You always meet new people and learn new things. I love the counselors there. Everyone is just so friendly. I wonder who has seen my commercial. It has been very popular recently.

My FAILure

  I am so disappointed in myself. I SPLURGED. I couldnt handle the no meat & no sweets. I had a honey bun and a chicken wrap. Im so upset with myself. I am gonna get back on the diet tomorrow. But I dont even want to weigh myself in the morning. Just typing this is irritating me, I feel so weak. Like I have no self-control or will power. Its very upsetting. I hope that it isnt always like this. But I am just going to Forgive & Forget. Im gonna make my lunch and chop up my fruit  for my morning smoothie then read my book. So GOD BLESS YOU AND SPREAD THE WORD ABOUT MY BLOG!!

Very Tempting Day

My Kale Chips
  Today was a very tempting day. I had temptations everywhere!! This morning, they had tater tots during breakfast. In one of my classes, my teacher sells snacks and juices. During lunch, they had turkey wraps. All day! Just so many temptations. The one thing I will admit is I had a piece of a graham cracker. I feel guilty. But I am gonna exercise so much tonight.
 I made some KALE CHIPS. They turned out pretty good. They taste really good. But they have an odd texture to them. I still really like my homemade potato chips.
Oh yea!! Im 207.2lbs. Check Out My Weigh-In Page!!!

Hopefull For Tomorrow

  Sooooo...., I am hopefull that tomorrow goes well. But, at the same time, I know that I will have temptations at lunch time. I will try to not let it get to me. Many people are going to be very supportive. So just KEEP ME IN YOUR PRAYERS!

My Weight & My Morning Juice

  This morning I weighed 208.8!!!! Im so excited. Thats 2.2lbs down. At this rate I will be under 200 in no time. Now that I see the results of this, it makes it easier to keep going.
  My juice this morning was: pear, pinapple, peach, papaya, grapes, strawberry, & cucumber. It tasted really good. I was looking at some juicing recipes on . A good pain reducer is 1 lemon, 1 orange, 2 hard pears, & 2 apples. Im going to try that one day.

Day 1 of CHANGE

  So, yesterday was my first day of only fruits and veggies. It was so hard. I got a headache. And I was hungry, FAST. But I know that it will all pay off in the end. Oh yea!, yesterday morning I weighed 211, even. Last week I weighed 212.6 so I lost 1.6lbs this past week. I hope that this "diet" works well. I had so many temptations yesterday. But I think that they will start to go away. I just hope that when I get to school that it isnt hard to stay focused.

My First Juiced Juice

   So yesterday I made my first juice. When I say "juice", I mean that I cut up fruits and veggies and but them in a juicer. I used half of a lemon, a peach, a pear, an apple, and a carrot. I was afraid that the lemon would make it bitter but it actuall gave it a little tang that was surprisingly good. You could really taste the pears in there. But I think that it was an overall really good mix. It was so good that even mommy wanted

Sign Language For FUN
   So, I didn't make the step team. I shed like 4 or 5 tears, but I didn't let it get to me all day. I actually had a great day today. Im hoping to do something fun this weekend. Maybe shopping, movies, or a friend's house. I am going to pin curl the front half of my hair and flat iron the back half. I actually want to go to school on Monday; I have fun at school. But, notmuch happened today.
-Anything you want me talk about on here or do????

Mess Up - Step Up

  So, today, I had Karma(Westlake's step team) try-outs. I knew the step so well. It was pretty much perfect. We were auditioning in 5s. I was #6. So I found the girls who were #7,8,9, & 10. We were practicing together and we werent together. But, I told them that even if we sound all out off wack to KEEP GOING, because if you mess up and you keep going the judges probably wont care that much.
  When it was our turn to audition, Ms. Blackman(the sponsor) counted us off and we started. We werent together at all.. But everybody kept stopping and I didnt stop until Ms. Blackman told me to. Then #10 quit. So, Ms. Blackman gave us another try, and IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STEP, #7 & 9 stop and quit and mess up me & #8.. I was SO MAD, but I kept going to the end even though I messed up alot. After we finished, Ms. Blackman asked us what our talent was and had us do it. I sang "Price Tag" by Jessie J.
  As soon as I got out of there, I started crying. I was so dedicated and determined to getting on the team, and then, somebody ruined it for me. So I called my momma and she told me to ask for another chance to prove myself. So the captain talked to Ms. Blackman and she let me perform again. That time I did it almost perfectly; I had like one miniscule mess up but I kept going and acted like it didnt happen. That time I did AWESOME. I just hope I make it on the team. I will know tomorrow morning. I am gonna say a Prayer and I hope all my followers and readers will too.
