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. 🙂

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
