Weigh in

Hey everyone! I wanted to let you know I’ve lost 10.5 lbs since last week. That is all thanks to eating veggies and fruit.

So I cheated yesterday. I had gluten. I got sick. Real sick. Sweating real bad. It was gross. More details but I’m not gonna share. Heh.

Gross.

Well this is the weigh in update. I’m going to post a recipe and some food that people with celiac disease can eat.

2013 Bucket List

So I read somewhere that having a bucket list increases the chance of doing more with your life. I have dreams about going many places with my life. Maybe not within this whole year, but to make some of my dreams come true. Here is my bucket list for 2013.

Start a diet and maintain it for 30 days.
Volunteer to help for an event at work.
Run my very first 5k.
Return to college in the summer for my business degree.
See a musical
Visit my brothers graduation
Get a new car
Visit a state I’ve never been in before
Pick out where we are getting married with the date that we picked
Lose 50 lbs this year
Visit a museum I’ve never been too
Go to a theme park
Complete a sodoku
Paint my nails everyday
Watch every episode of doctor who to date
Enjoy the sunset
Go on a road trip
Actually make a project from Pinterest

Thanks for reading my bucket list. It is not the best but it is the start of something new.

My main New Years resolution… To lose weight…:)

Soon to be Mrs!

Engaged On Christmas!

You read the post title…That’s right. Your little writer on The Sam Slam is engaged! We are so excited.

 

We are so cute!

We are so cute!

I just wanted to say how thankful I am for his family. They are just the best. Words cannot describe how much I appreciate and love them. They definitely given me the best Christmas to remember.

Okay, so not only did I get a beautiful ring, I also got a Hello Kitty bike, an iPad mini, Tardis cookie jar, sonic screw driver (obsessed with Doctor Who!), a spanking brand new camera, and more Hello Kitty things, a stuffed Piglet…..and did I mention I got engaged?

I’m excited, who wouldn’t be?

So now the real challenge awaits…What type of diet should I go on for this wedding? Oh wait, I’m already on one. You know the one, where I can’t eat wheat, rye, breads, stuff that makes my stomach twist in knots because I’m allergic to all that kind of stuff. I’ve decided that going to get my 4th meal these days, aren’t the best option for me.

There is this girl on facebook who weighs more than me but lost 53 lbs, and you can tell a difference. She is beautiful no matter what, but she is losing the weight for herself. That’s what I want to do, I just don’t have the best will power. If I eat the food with gluten, I get sick. When I eat the food without gluten, I’m like a bright light bulb, ready to explode. I can tell you right now, I hate having celiac disease. Why can’t I eat all my favorite foods?

:)

🙂

It’ll be okay though. I am a little bit broke at the moment. (All of us get to these moments…) But once I do get caught up in all my lovely bills, I will be shopping for healthier foods. Right now, rice is my best friend. Tony did make me chili this weekend. It was delicious. And then I was hungry for pizza, and so I ordered it, ate it, felt horrible after I ate it..So it really does cost me when I eat something bad. So I’m just going to stick to my rice.

My apartment complex is big, so I guess I could go walking the whole complex, but it’s freezing outside. It goes into the twenties at night in georgia. WHO WOULD OF THOUGHT THAT WOULD OF HAPPEN? It’s depressing. I can’t wait till it’s warm and I can start riding my awesome hello kitty bike. 🙂 Best dayyy ever!

Well thanks for reading my rant.

Soon to be Mrs. 🙂

Fifty

Hello to all friends here on WP.
This is my 50th post here on wordpress, and I have made some friends. Thank you so much for letting me be an interest in your life.

I usually just post a poem, or whatever is on my mind. This post? Same thing. The only difference is, I want to tell you the things I’ve done recently that done with the number 50.

1) 50 Shades of Grey
2) 50 Shades Darker
3) 50 Shades Freed

That’s about it! I really enjoyed those 3 books. The first one is probably the most porn I’ve ever read in my whole entire life. I am sure everyone has seen this photo, but I just had to post it. The only thing wrong with this picture, is the fact that the two women are reading two different books, but in the same page. (What it looks like to me!) I was reading an article online the other day, and how this story came to be, is amazing. From fan fiction, to famous? That is amazing.

In all fairness, it was a good trilogy to read for females. I don’t see a man rushing to the book store to pick this up. I do see a man taking his girlfriend to the movies to see it. I just do not know how they are going to put this story into a movie. I wouldn’t take my grandmother to see this, that is for sure. I watched Magic Mike with my Er (Mother-in-law), and that was awkward. Will I do it again? Most likely. That was such a great chick flick, except for the two guys that sat in the front row and kept yelling. Sometimes men just ruin the fun out of everything for us girls…(I am not trying to put you men down in anyway, but if it was a women up there dancing on the big screen, you would yell at us to shut up. :))

My other half and I, saw the Amazing Spider-Man. It was such a good movie. If you haven’t seen it, please go! It’s much better than what else is out there. At the end, it says “Story by…James Vanderbilt” I told Tony how exciting that was…Then he realized he didn’t know who that was. Then I found out I confused myself with James Van Der Beek….Haha, oh well.

Are we still losing weight? I have tried! When  you are broke, fast food is cheap! I can’t wait until next pay day to stock my fridge back up.

SATURDAY!

News in my world:
Thanks for coming to my blog and reading about my personal life. I can be quite a catch. This past week, which was an awesome week, I got to have more time to myself. This time that I had, I relaxed, made dinner, and even caught up on a couple TV shows I have been missing. I also caught up on my sleep.

Pocket, my small dog, he’s a little bad. He’s finally survived a week without having an accident in the house. That is great, because that means he is finally being obedient. With him being over a year old, I thought it would be harder, but he’s being so good. Also, I will be posting a video on Wednesday starring him. He does something I would like to share with the world.

 

Android or Apple?:
I own an Android and an Apple product. Whatever you do, don’t ever ask which one I like more. I would never be able to answer that question. I love using my Android as my phone. I love using my iTouch for everything else. Tony just recently bought himself an iPad, which I use a lot when he isn’t around. I absolutely love it. The only thing you can’t do on the iPad is do word documents, which what this is. I usually type everything up before I post it. Sometimes, I even write it down.

The difference between Android and Apple App Market: Android has great apps, but not as great as the Apple App market. There are so many apps on the Apple market, I wish that Android had. I know that the Android Market is a lot bigger because of all the different phones that has the Android OS on it, but Apple is just amazing.

What is one app that you know an android user wouldn’t find on the Apple app market? Temple Run. I am so addicted to this game. Tony is addicted as well. Tonight, at our family’s house (with the UFC fights on), we are playing this game to see who can get the highest score. Tony so far has 205,000. I have 145,000. And the rest are under that.

What’s NEW and EXCITING for this week?
As seen on Yahoo news, maintaining your metabolism is good for a lot of reasons. So if you are trying to lose weight, or just to look fit, here you can find the top 20 ways to keep your metabolism good, or get it right the first time! 20 Ways to Speed Metabolism

What to expect by Wednesday?
My answer to that is simple. I want to have a planned out diet system. I want to see how long that can last before I try my next diet. Have you ever tried a diet that did work and kept off the weight? Please let me know. I would try anything.

Yours truly,

Samantha

New Year Resolution

This past week, I have decided to put my new year resolution to test. At the beginning of the year, I went to the doctors to get a check up and see how much I’d weigh. At that time, I weighed 4 lbs more than what I do now. That is two weeks later exactly.

I feel healthier, and I even act like I am healthier. I’ve done a lot of thinking and how to do this major change.

I have decided to change my eating habits. I am such an emotional eater, it is not even funny. I love to eat food. I’ll eat when I’m happy, I’ll eat when I’m sad, and I’ll especially eat when I’m upset. That’s who I was. This is the biggest change ever to me because, it’s something I really want.

Every morning before I take my dog, Pocket, outside for a walk, I will drink a glass of water. Water helps make yourself more full before you eat. It also helps your body digest the food you are about to it. When I come back in from the walk, I will eat just one slice of whole grain bread. White and wheat bread are bad for you.

I also write in my ipod what food and how many calories I eat in a day. I do not go over 1200 in a day. Instead of eating 3 meals a day, I eat 3 meals with 2 snacks. I also eat my dessert before I ate my dinner. It gives it a better chance to burn that calorie off. My dessert is typically that second snack in the day.

When you are bored, you eat. When I’m bored, all I do is think about food. I fiddle my thumbs and just think about how much food I want to eat.

I want to provide you with some information that I have found online that helped me lose this 4 lbs.

1.) Drink a glass of water before any meal.
2.) Eat a meal. In 3 hours, have a snack. After that, wait 3 hours and have lunch. In another 3 hours, have your dessert. Then wait 3 more hours, and have your dinner.
3.) Get rid of the bad foods, so when you crave them, grab an apple. (or something you know you will like)
4.) If you sit down all day, walk while you are on break at work.

I hope to share more information I’ve come to see.

Always,

Samantha
