Today I'm proud of myself :) I went to the gym for 1.5 hours, did my strenght routine and a good, intense 30 mins of bike. Burned more calories than spark is recommending me and I ate very well! My pie chart is almost perfect (fats/carbs/proteins).
I can already tell my abs will kill me tomorrow, and I am so tired right now.. but it feels good to have done it. Tomorrow, unless i'm too sore.. some more cardio :)

OH - MY - GOD - !
Ok so I calculated my food intake for today by curiosity.... man, I understand why i don't feel too good at the moment.. I'm over in all of the categories except for the proteins in which i'm in the range but in the very lower part.
I just don't know what to think.. I will definitively have to be more careful about what I put in my mouth!!
EDIT: -- PHEW! I just realized that I accidently added a food grouping that I created (but didn't eat today), so now i'm in the higher part of all categories, but still in the range. I will definitely try for smaller portions and more frequent meals instead of just a super big one. Will also try to not to eat late at night (generally having my supper 2 hours before bed..)
Gym tomorrow, wish me luck :)

I spent all of the afternoon reading posts on my SparkTeams and other realated nutritional and fitness articles, I am ready for this!
I said on a forum that my personnal challenge for the next week is to replace all binging eating by water! Aye :)
I also have some kind of a plan for my gym goals.. I don't know if this will be realistic for the first week as i haven't excercise in a long time.. but I will go 6 days per week, cardio everyday and strenght every other day with saturday off, to relax.
What I think I'll do (or try to see if it works) for my cardio sessions is, on strenght days i'll just do my normal 30 mins of cardio, mid to hard intensity and on the day where I only do cardio i'll try that "Peak 8" Mercola is raving about. I wonder if it's too hard for me, but it looks like a nice challenge and an effective one, too.
I'm wondering if it's too much exercise too, I don't think so because I know my body really needs it and I really want to see the pounds go down. I'll be careful with what I eat as in: no junk! smaller portions! water! sensitive snacks! Do you think i'm pushing myself here?
I also posted a comment on Eating Clean about how much fructose is too much fructose? Hope someone with knowledge about the subject will answer..
That's about it, for now.

I'm going back at the gym, it's not a choice anymore.. I'm so tired of that fat I don't feel like myself anymore. I removed all but two of my pictures because I look at them and just feel like looking at a stranger.
Lately I find my body changed, not that I took a lot of weight back but I don't know, I think i'm catching up with my age. I'll be 30 soon and so far i've, and others, always found that I was looking younger than my age, and my body was in a reasonable shape despite my bad habits. But now it's like my body is giving up? I had quite muscular and toned arms but lately it's like i've lose that little bump on the upper arm? It's kind of freaking me out, to be honest.. My skin seems so much fragile too. Aye :( It is true that i've been super inactive for the last 6 month to 1 year so maybe with a bit of strenght trainning and good cardio it'll come back and I'll stop discovering new stretch marks on my body? Please tell me so :(

I was soo so busy for the last 2 months, incredible! I havr my last class this Sunday and i'm so happy that finally it's gonna be summer for real! Planing holidays outside of the province and paying big bills is still a big stress but nothing compared to work+university+money problems.. Anyway!
I went for my annual exam at the gyneco and she found my blood pressure a bit high and asked me to be my family doctor so she can have a check on me from time to time. My pressure was super high, 150/100!! I wasn't feeling really well that day, lack of sleep, stress, it was like 40 celcius outside.. Anyway, I told her I would make improvements before I see her again in one month. I already did! I droped Red Bull completely, which is about the most retarded thing you can do to your health.. Disminished my espressos consumption too. I still drink a lot of water and introduced fruit smoothie on my daily routine. As soon as next tuesday i'm gonna be back at the gym, my next apointment with the doctor is in a month exactly. I can already feel some good changes. I feel lighter and can feel my pressure is lower as well. I'll try to have better sleep and I promessed my boyfriend we'd have a nice summer outside, so I plan on going hiking and kayaking :)) What i'm the most proud of is that I've been Able to detox myself from that nasty nasal spray stuff I was addicted on for a couples years now!!! It's a big deal to me. I notice that I don't wake up with headaches as much as I did :)) Yay! I'm very happy :)
