Day 1

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

I'm preparing for the Quantum Cleanse for 21 days and I thought that I should start with a week where I wean myself off the BIG 5 (Caffeine, Alcohol, Gluten, Animal Products, and refined sugar). Lucky for me I don't like caffeine and alcohol, I don・t like their taste and I・m allergic to alcohol. On the other hand I have no idea what food has gluten so I・ll just stick to oatmeal and red rice for carbohydrates. Now onto animal products and this one is going to be tough for me because I can・t live without my fish! 21 days without fish is hard so I・ll have to ease into it first or else I don・t think my body can take it especially since I run 4 times a week. Then the evil that is refined sugar!!! I have a hard time stopping myself from eating the sweet stuff like cookies and cake although logically they are the first things that should go when going on a cleanse but as of today I haven't had any refined sugar yet so I'll have to see how far I could go on this cleanse. I plan to start the cleanse on Sunday then see how far I could go, hopefully I last the whole 21 days without cheating! I'll be praying for more power!

  


Should've just rested

Thursday, August 11, 2011

Today I tried to do as much work as I could and I promised myself if I didn't feel like it after 10 minutes I could stop but I didn't so I just boxed instead of doing my strength training. But for some reason my monitor read only 247 after an hour of kicking and boxing I thought it would be more but my heart rate just wasn't going up.

I think I should've just rested.

  


The hard part

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

This is the part of the year when I get really close to my current goal weight but somehow I feel like I'm derailing in the sense that I start eating those high calorie foods that I've avoided for the past three months and somehow getting my workouts seem harder than before, I don't burn as much calories as I want to and my body starts to get tired easily.

I know that it's going to get harder as I'm nearing my goal weight but I know deep inside me that I want to feel the greatest before my 21st birthday. I've promised myself last year that before my 20th birthday I would have to be at my goal weight by I was again 5 pounds short of being there. I kind of stopped watching what I ate and I started being less disciplined with what I ate and my workouts as well.

I have to be able to do something to be able to overcome this wall if I may call it that. I have to promise myself TO KEEP GOING and TO KEEP RUNNING so that I may reach my goal. I won't be so critical as to when I would reach this goal weight but I will get there, and as of now my immediate goal will be to just continue losing weight and get to my goal no matter how long it may take as long as I don't gain from now on until I get there.

I'll try to blog as often as I need to because I think it helps in keeping my focus as well :) emoticon

    I think a lot of us are okay with losing weight, but when you get to your goal and have to maintain it's pretty scary. I know that happened for me. No more goals to reach. You just have to take 1 day at a time. I have been doing it for 2 years now. I still struggle, but my body has really adjusted and that's a big help. Don't give up and take it one day at a time!

rainy days :(

Monday, June 20, 2011

Weather today was rainy and cold and I didn't feel 100% during my workout. :( spent 110 minutes and didn't burn as much as I wanted to because the intensity wasn't high enough. I could have burned more than what I did today but oh well I'll just have to do better tomorrow. I have to do better tomorrow!

Changing my strategy

Friday, June 17, 2011

since 2008 I've been trying so hard to get to a number which is 125. Each year I would get so near that goal but then I find myself not paying attention to what I'm eating and slacking off during my workouts when I get to let's say 128 lbs. Then I would just go back to not caring about what I ate and let go for a while then gain a few pounds. Then when it shows through my clothes getting tighter I go so extreme that I would go all out with my workouts again and go on a crazy low calorie diet which works for a while but then I would plateau again thus the cycle begins again.

I could say that I've improved these past few years because I used to gain 8-10 lbs during summer vacation when we go on family trips abroad, but each year I find that I gain less and less during these trips. This recent trip that I had with the family to europe I gained a maximum of 6 pounds which is not ideal but good enough and by now I've already lost all of them and more in 6 weeks. I'm already down 8 pounds!

I realized that the reason I am not able to get past a plateau is because I stop doing what I have to do to break that plateau, I give up after a month and then stop paying attention to what I eat and stop doing the things that got me to loose the first 10 pounds! I always followed a time frame and once I'm not able to meet it I get frustrated and slack off.

This year I'm trying a different approach, I'm not going to go Biggest Loser on myself and set a deadline weeks or months later. I will be focusing on what I could be able to do right now that would help me slowly loose the pounds and not having to gain it at all anymore!
I'll be focusing on how this will be a real lifestyle change that doesn't end when I reach my goal, I would continue paying attention to my calorie intakes because this is where I fail every time. I'm an athlete so being active is not a problem however I tend to slack off when it comes to what I'm eating. Finally accepting that I would have to change how I eat forever is a hard thing to swallow because 16 years of bad habits don't just go away in 4 years' time, I would need more than 16 years to retrain myself to really eat clean healthy food to fuel me every day.

Each day I'm getting wiser and each day I try to do my best to make these permanent changes in my life. I have to tell myself that these changes are PERMANENT not just for the mean time, not only until I get to my goal weight but these habits will be FOREVER.

I'm trying to be permanently fit and healthy! :)
