Raising The Bar

In prepartion for "basic", as all the cool kids call it, I've started this little fitness log in a journal I found while tearing my room apart. I wrote in dates thinking it would force me to actually do the PT tests... Hopefully it works. I want to blow those minimum requirements out of the water by the time I leave for basic in January.
This little fitness log is also going to include one of these "What I Ate Today" type things. I'm kinda scared to start it. I don't know what the heck I eat and I have a feeling it isn't good...I'm starting it on Monday (because of course, you can't possibly start anything new on any other day of the week...). I've also started a really mean work out at the gym and I have begun using...the eliptical. I hate that stupid thing, but it makes me hurt and that has to be a good thing. I'm about to become a major gym-rat...

Also, I'm giving up one of my new favorite things...It's sad because I just barely found out that I love it.  It's...Pepsi Throwback. I am a Pepsi-hater and a strictly Coke-Drinker. But I decided to give this stuff a try and I love it. Sadly, it has to go. I don't care if it is made from real sugar, it's bad for me and will make me run slower. I'm sure of it.  Along with the soda, I'm changing my eating habits completely. I've been planning on doing it forever, and now I've got some major motivation. Hopefully I actually stick to it.

In other news, check out my cute little garden! It's kinda hard to see in the picture, But it's really flourishing and I'm so excited to harvest! Because I got it in the ground a little bit late, I won't be able to harvest until the end of August maybe early September. But I'm really proud of that thing and how it turned out. It was very theraputic to do it and it may have saved my relationship...They really mean it when they say that gardening is cheaper than therapy!

And that's that. See you next time!

Good luck! I've been doing the fitness & diet thing for a few months now (I just want to lose weight, I'm not joining the military) and gosh it is hard! (I actually just wrote a post about this week, haha) Soda is still my weak point; I drink diet but I am trying to wean myself off of it. Doesn't help that Mr. H is a soda addict and can easily go through a 12 pack in a night if you let him! :P

Yeah I have a soda addiction myself! But I'm working on it! haha I saw your post about it :) trying to find the fitness plan that works for you is really hard. Hopefully tracking it will help me get big and stong!
