No time for June gloom!

Exciting, exciting... can you believe its JUNE?! That means, to me, its summer. I feel like every month I say, "can you believe its January, May, etc?" But seriously, June is big for me. It means I've been graduated for over 1 year?!?
I don't want to say I've accomplished nothing in that year (I did get a job and some other small things), but let's just say I'm far from what I expected. For example, I had envisioned being done with a personal statement, pre-req classes, and running multiple 5 or 10k races.

Ok, ok.. this isn't complaining and pity party time. Just wanted to say that I was a little disappointed in my laziness. And my whole reason for this story is to explain that blogging and my 101 list are a way of getting out of my funk. Get going. Don't let my twenties pass my by. Live it up (or something like that..)After reading reviews and opinions on Jillian Michael's 30 day shred, I finally dished out the $9 to buy it. Sometimes I go through the looongest process of rationalizing a purchase. I knew that $9 was very inexpensive, but I kept thinking "what if it doesn't work" or "what if I hate it." Really, that was just procrastination speaking. For goodness sakes, sometimes I spend that much on a meal! Day 1 starts now, I hope I'm not too out of shape!
#51 is drink at least 1 liter of water daily, but I just read on Mayo Clinic that its really is 2 liters for fluid maintenance. Should I change it? I usually measure my intake in units of "nalgene," and I do 1 nalgene no problem. Hmmm, if I'm going to be exercising I'll need more water too.

Also, thanks for the suggestions on how to organize. I was, and still am, a little overwhelmed. It's as if I was able to survive and organize in college, but it all blew out of my brain upon graduation. Here I go, I'm reverting back to intense college mode: complete with making to-lists of everything and micromanaging. Rawr.. Chaos and procrastination, you should be scared. Very scared.


  1. Good luck with the 30 Day Shred! I'd love to hear about your progress, and to see what you think about it.

  2. Good luck with the workouts and water - you can do it!

    I just wanted to pop over and thank you for entering my Karma Cards giveaway on Juliana's blog. We've got a few sets left, you're still keen (cough, shameless self-promotion, cough) ;)

  3. I love the 30 day shred! My favorite quote from the video .. "These abs don't come for free." :) Makes me laugh every time!
    One more thing.. I just learned in one of my classes.. fluid needs are constantly changing. Best gauge is the pea test. (light in color)

  4. Wow, I wish I had the same attitude about the $9. purchase...I'd have WAY more $$ haha..I waste so much on things I do not use, or that do not work!

    I drink SOOOO much water every day...my husband thinks I love water more than him, haha. The more the better, and it depends on your activity level and how much you sweat! I can drink 5 of those things!

    Lists are good...I need more of those in my life too, you just inspired me to get moving on that--where to start??
