Nothing all that interesting has happened since my last journal entry but since it's the new year, I feel compelled to write something. We don't really celebrate Christmas (if you watched my most recent YouTube videos) and only really celebrated it by having a cake. I told my mom that we should get the cake because it would have been a year since that whole fiasco with the shower tub and it having a serious clog in the drain. I said that we should celebrate that moment where we didn't shower for almost 3 days and it could've possibly went on for a week (lol).
Checked my academic progress report online since I checked my grades last week. I will officially be done in March. Onward, to adulthood! *cries on ground*. I just need to pass these last two classes, get the paperwork filed and have the fees paid, so my diploma can arrive in the mail. I JUST checked the date and I'll bring the paperwork in around January 21 or so.
I'm using my new running shoes now. I'm really satisfied with them because I don't need to double sock anymore. I also don't feel like my feet are being strangled when my laces are tied tight. I had that problem with my previous Asics Speedstars (hence the double socking and slippage on one foot). The pad on the bottom feels sort of odd when you begin your run but the sensation goes away after the initial run. It's like the floor is uneven and then it just goes away o_O. New Balance! kudos! (better be. They were like almost 60 bucks [orig. $90], but it's a worthy investment.)
As far as body goals, I have a hard time seeing differences in photos. I can't be the only one who flexes their stomach and then sometimes don't, meaning you end up tricking yourself and feeling like you're going no where. Maybe when I hit my 1000th mile on Nike+, I'll really notice something. If you look at it by numbers, my weight hasn't changed. I think I might have gained five pounds if you could my weight from the beginning of 2013. I do feel and see notable differences in my arms, legs, and chest though. Of course, losing the belly fat will be the most tedious, but I'm up for it. I'm 180 pounds (I'm sure at least 20 of those pounds are from fat), 5 feet 6.5, waist 32...T____T
