The Zombie Apocalypse Blog is Up and Running!

Follow www.zombieapocalypsechallenge.tumblr.com! Once I get a head count of everyone participating, the action can really begin!

Thanks for your support in helping to start this up! 

Would you guys be interested?

I have an idea for weight loss that anyone could take part in, and it would be a ton of fun. I want to create a blog that is set in the times of the zombie apocalypse, where you have to eat what you can, and “run from the zombies”, and other activities that would give you a work out, while pretending that the brain munching dead are after you! For example, I would post things like: “You and your buddies are wandering around aimlessly, looking for something to occupy yourselves with, and you see a suit case lying under the rubble. Do two sets of weights to lift the ruins, and get to the case.” or “Holy shit! While you were sitting around the camp fire, sharing stories, when a few flesh choppers saw the smoke and found you! Run a mile to the next safe point!” The whole thing would go on for however long I decided, but, to people who I see are working hard, and losing weight while playing along, I would give out prizes from websites like Thinkgeek, and other zombie related toys. Maybe I would even throw in a grand prize, like new running shoes, or something crazy! 

It was just a thought, but I really, really want to do it. Would anyone be interested in taking the Zombie Apocalypse Challenge?

Went for a two mile jog uphill, in the blazing heat

As I was going, I saw an old classmate of mine from middle school walking home from school. He was the most popular kid in the school, and a total jack ass. As I ran by, he looked me up and down with a disgusted look on his face. I made a face as I ran by, something really unattractive, and his jaw literally dropped to the ground. Such a rewarding run. Right now, I’m making myself a green tea to help with detox, enjoying a glass of water, and googling good recipes with tofu. Any ideas, my fitblr community? 

I am so sick of being fat. I’m a sick of the long gazes at girls in bikinis, at myself in the mirror, at girls on the computer screen. I am sick of eating junk food. Of the bad, guilty feelings I get afterwards, of the lost satisfaction I feel after eating something unhealthy. I live once. Once. And I am wasting it on feeling guilty, fat, and helpless. Well you know what? No. No I am not. I am going to run. Everyday. Anytime that I can, I’ll be found running, or doing something healthy. I have gone to school every day, and looked around, feeling like the fattest ass in the room. I went to an amusement park, and watched my crush with some blonde skinny bimbo, and I know, in the bottom of my heart, everything society is, is a lie. It’s a joke. Skinny is a joke. Popularity is a joke. Everything I thought I wanted, it’s all a lie. But you know what isn’t? Fat. Fat is not a joke, in fact, it’s very real. And it affects almost half of America. What else isn’t a joke? Healthy. Skinny is a lie. Healthy, it’s real, but it’s so hard to achieve. I saw a blog that said “How to be healthy without really even trying”, and I was disgusted. Things that you strive for in life, they are hard fought, hard earned, and you do need to try. You need to work your ass off. So here I go, ready to work my ass off to get what I want. No dietary pills, no cheating, no starving, no anything that will impede me in my quest to get the body I want. And you’d better believe, when I come back to school, and I look at my crush, well, ex crush, and his girlfriend, I will laugh. Because I’m going to look great, and guess what? I have a personality to match. 

Here we go, to a summer of fitness.

Confession:

These past few days have been really hard. I’m afraid to get on the scale, and for that, I’m sorry. I got on the scale a few days ago, and it was my highest weight, and I burst into tears. I’ve been eating things that aren’t so good, because I don’t have the time to sit down and eat a salad or exercise like I should. I’m so busy with finals, all honors courses in a college preparatory school, that I am on a melt down. I’m sick of being fat, and it’s like I can’t get there. I see all these gorgeous skinny girls on Tumblr, and I think that’s supposed to make me feel motivated, to look like them, to be like them, to work hard, but it doesn’t. I feel horrible about my body, my weight, everything about myself I compare to these unrealistically skinny girls that society posts everywhere you look. It’s like they’ve burned it in my brain, if I don’t look a certain way, then I am not beautiful. And I know it shouldn’t be this way, that I should fee beautiful for who I am, and not what I look like. But it hurts so much. I look in the mirror, and I just want to take scissors and cut myself to pieces because I’m chubby. I want to be thin, but it feels like I can never get there, like it’s a brick wall, and someone just told me that I have to climb to the top to live. I want to, so bad that it’s killing me, but it isn’t physically possible. I can’t do it. What do I do? 

I feel like there are so many personal blogs, with all their stats and motivational pictures, which is great and all. I see all these pictures telling us to eat healthy, and somtimes, I’ll spot a good recipe on healthy food, but besides that, there isn’t a lot of good, healthy food blogs that give great food advice.

What I’m trying to say here is, what would you guys think if I started a food blog, with healthy and delicious food, for vegans, vegetarians, and just healthy eaters. Would anyone be interested in helping, or just checking it out?

I can’t believe I’m gonna do this, but…

Every question someone asks me, I will drink one cup of water. I need eight cups total… Every day, and I need some motivation to do it. 

Hell, I’ll even throw in a doodle with the answer. 

Bring it on!

Dear Chris,

You would be so proud of me today, I think this is the best diet day I’ve ever had, and I wasn’t even on the Medifast (I get back on tomorrow, in case you’re wondering)! I woke up at ten in the morning, and went down for breakfast, but instead, found my dad sitting there, sun bathing. He insisted that, before breakfast, I take Murphy out to run the loop. I argued and whined, but, without giving myself time to think about it, went upstairs, put on my running clothes, got my brother and my two dogs:

(Them at Christmas)

We went out for a two mile run, mostly uphill, before arriving home to eat a healthy breakfast of two eggs as an omelet.

But wait, it gets better. I wanted to go to a movie, but my mom insisted we go hiking, and I am so happy that we did. Going on a mile hike to a lovely waterfall, the same waterfall that was in the movie Tuck Everlasting (I don’t expect you to know it) was just what I needed. We climbed the waterfall and had a lovely picnic there of Spanish ham and water. My mom and I talked for awhile, and we came up with a plan, eat like a Spaniard. What that means in, eat a big breakfast, full of protein, so you can burn it off throughout the day, eat a small lunch and a small dinner, go to bed with nothing in you, feeling hungry. 

So, today I:

Ran two miles

Ate a nice omelet for breakfast

Hiked a good mile uphill

Swam a bit in ice cold water

Ate a nice, healthy lunch of Spanish ham

Ate a bowl of cereal for dinner

In celebration, I compiled a ton of gifs from my new favorite tv series!

errr I got bored

A Daily Jog with my Dog

I took a two mile jog with Murphy:

Here’s him as a puppy! But this is him now:

So anyway, I went on a two mile jog/drag with my doggie, Murphy, since I can’t exactly jog with my hedgehog… It was tiring, but I think I’m going to do this every day. Also, I went to a crab place and, while my brother got a entree that was 2040 calories, I got something that was 680 calories. So, today, I had a total of:

120 calories of cereal

A bento box

680 calories of shrimp and meat and vegetables. Actually, the 680 would include the big pile of rice that came with it, and no rice for me! 

Tomorrow I get back on Medifast, and go for another two mile run! I’m going to impress Chris by being 152 or maybe even less!! Here’s to healthy~
