My name is Danielle.
Recent college graduate, and a cashier at a restaurant that will not be named. Ever. I hate the fact I work there and spend every day submitting applications to offices so I can get away from the volatile environment of burgers and mustachioed female managers.
My best friend, Caitlin and I have decided to make this blog in an attempt to guilt ourselves into actually staying on the weight-loss bandwagon. Usually, we both will start diets and exercise regimens in good faith, only to suddenly stop working on anything two weeks later.
But this time has to be different. If I have to be stuck working at The Job From Hell with a She Beast as my boss, I could at least become comfortable with myself physically. And making a public blog where it becomes possible for strangers to be able to have written opinions on my progress, or lack thereof … well, there’s something scary about that.
Scary, but motivating.
And that’s what Caitlin and I need. Motivation.
So, hi. Get to know me:
- I currently weight 195 pounds. I am 5’10”. And my BMI is 28, making me overweight, getting close to being obese.
- My weaknesses are fast food, Chef Boyardee spaghetti and meatballs, Diet Coke, and fried things … specifically french fries. Oh … and sweets. Even though I don’t really like sweet things very often, I tend to eat them just because they’re there.
- I overeat out of boredom, and I rarely drink water.
My main goal is weight-loss, of course, but I’d also like to tone my thighs, upper arms, and my stomach.
This week I’m going to look at joining a local gym.
And I’m making an attempt to drink at least two glasses of water a day, and cut back on my soda and greasy food intake.
Wish me luck!
