Day 168 Where Have I Been?

I have lot to catch you up on for the past 11 days, but for now I am going to have to wait. I am currently on antibiotics and fighting a infection in my finger. I got a hangnail that got really infected , I went to the ER to get it lanced my finger didn't have much pus in the infection; it was mostly infected blood. The doctor was very surprised that they were no pus mostly blood and also very worried too. As I am writing this I am writing with one hand it takes alot of time to write this post.

Hopefully I'll be back in a week or sooner, it solely depends on how my finger is. I have lot to write up about my journey on getting healthy but it's going to wait until I feel better.

Question does anyone have any good suggestions to fight upset stomach from antibiotics?

179 Days To Reset My Life

The title is pretty interesting huh? Curious what it's about me wanting to really take control of my weight issues that I have. I have 179 days until my 24th birthday, when I was younger I had imagine myself being at a health weight by then and not being overweight. 

I have always been overweight except for a few years where I was at a healthy weight and I liked being at a healthy weight. I want to go back to my healthy weight , I want to be proud of myself and not unhappy with the way I look.So I look at the next 179 days as a chance to reset my life and to learn how to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

As of today I am typing this because I am going to be writing about this journey , I will still my vegan reviews of places and food. However I am going to blog about my journey during these next 179 days, it's something that is dear to me. I am doing these journey without a trainer or a weight loss program, this will be something I will be figuring out on my own.

Some thing's that will assist in me with this journey are my food scale that I recently had gotten, my dumbbells 3lbs & 5lbs, my Wii Fit Plus & Just Dance 3 game. Also the apartment I live in has a swimming pool plus a workout room with cable. I know that with the things listed above will help me during the next 179 days, now on to the important details where I am at right now.

My current weight is at 251.6 pounds as of right now, I used my mom's scale to get that number. I know I need a scale myself to keep track of my weight loss. My ultimate goal is to get down to 165-175 range I would be happy and pleased.

Wacky Wednesday at IKEA

Veggies I know I have been a bad little blogger , forgetting to blog  oops. I have been focused on loosing weight and trying to get myself ready for my family reunion next week. I always post on Instagram,  I usually post picture through out the  day instant of blogging it's easier right now. I got a infection in my middle finger on the right side from a hang nail and it's painful to use that finger.

However I had to write a post today I was in a blogging mood and I went to IKEA in Houston; it was fun. I found out today that IKEA has a cafe inside it which I never knew about until today. I was thinking right away that the cafe wouldn't have any vegan options well I was actually wrong. The IKEA actually had a section of there menu which was for vegetarians and they also listed a vegan option. 

A Picture that I love it's really bright in colors.
I decided to get the vegan option to be on the safe side because I have never eaten at IKEA's cafe. The vegan option was a daily soup that sometimes would be vegan. Well today was my lucky day it was vegan and it was chili; I was actually glad it was chili. It was way to hot today for a soup so chili sound good and in fact my mom who was with me recommend that I get fries too. She made the recommendation for me to put the chili on top the fries and have chili fries, it was the best idea. 

The chili was actually really good in fact it was even better over the fries, I know it was totally junk  food but it was good. The chili had LOTS of vegetables in it and beans so it was very filling. I was hungry when I was eating it so I didn't really look at the food.I did find a couple piece's of furniture that I liked that I will be getting later, me and my mom will buy our stuff at the same time to save on shipping. It's only $59 dollar to where we live which is awesome!

 I hope this wasn't too long of a post or boring. I would like to know what you would like to see me blog about I am not sure if you would like me blogging about my weight loss and my daily meals. Please let me know.

I Think Technology Hates Me

Hello Veggies,

Sorry about no posts for about three weeks, after I got the netbook I crashed it within the first 24 hours. Some how when I was updating the software on the netbook a virus got downloaded at the same time. That's why I had a huge absence from my blog with no way to update either.

I have so much to post here on my blog , lot's of stuff. I am going to be posting my food each day on the blog like what I eat on Friday I would post today; if I had taken pictures. Silly me! So today I will be writing up my blog posts today to future date them just in case I mess up the computer again.

Have you ever crashed a brand new computer before or ever?
