i love to sleep!

so idk why i’ve been going to bed around 4a and then waking up at 10a this whole summer. that’s only 6 hours of sleep! studies say we need about 7.5 hours of quality sleep per night, and if you’re a five-hour sleeper and start to sleep for seven hours a night, you will start dropping weight! it makes so much sense why i’m the weight i am since i don’t sleep as early and as much as i’m supposed to. 

so starting tonight, i’m going to start training my body & brain to sleep early (11p & 12:30a at the latest). yeah yeah, i know to some people that’s considering sleeping late, but for someone who normally goes to bed anytime after 2a, that’s a stretch! i want to start sleeping earlier once school starts too so i really need to get started.

my nursing friends told me about this thing called 7-7-10. you don’t wake up past 7a, you don’t eat past 7p, and you don’t sleep past 10p. this sounds a little too hard to adjust to right now, so ill work my way to that slowly haha.

i need some motivation

soo i was doing pretty good with working out in the beginning of june, but started slacking at the end. i figured i needed something to push myself to work harder so what’s better than rewarding myself with all the hard work i’ve done. i got this brilliant idea from one of my besties Rachel =) so here it goes:

  • GW #1: 150 - new running gear 
  • GW #2: 140 - ipod nano (for easier running)
  • GW #3: 130 - vince camuto pumps
  • GW #4: 120 - little black dress
  • GW #5: 115 - orchid tattoo on my left side

i keep forgetting that i made a bet with JP about getting close to my ultimate gw by next summer so i really need to stop being lazy and get on with my life. if i really want to lose weight, i really have to work hard for it cus it’s not going to happen overnight.

why is it so easy to gain weight, but so hard to lose it?!

ugh, this sucks. i’ve been so motivated the beginning of this month and then after the crazy storm hit last week, i just got hella lazy and stopped going to the gym. blahblahblah.

10) Your cardio machine is counting the calories you’re burning.

9) Women shouldn’t lift weights because it’ll make them bulky.

8) Heart rate monitors will let you know how hard you’re working.

7) Your weight is the end all, be all.

6) Low-intensity exercise burns more fat.

5) Chug a protein shake after workout.

4) You can spot reduce for tight abs or toned arms.

3) As long as I go to the gym 30-45 minutes, that gives me a pass to do what I want for rest of the day.

2) No pain, no gain.

1) Stretching will help prevent injuries.
