I WILL do this! I WILL keep on losing weight and feel better and better about myself with each pound lost.
From now on i'm rewarding myself for each kilogram lost!!!
Starting with today, because i went from 76,2 to 75,6 kgs, i crossed the 76-mark, so here's my reward: shopping for something nice!

Something happened that is potentially good. But lets start at the beginning. In the past few weeks i have been lacking energy and willpower. Eating was eating (I mean i was eating a lot) and exercising was hard (i mean i didn't exercise). I decided to let go of exercise and focus on the food part (i know exercise is important but it's 80% nutrition and 20% exercise, so i decided that with the little energy that i have, i should pick the more important one sice doing both is verwhelming). But i couldn't stick to my decision to eat the amount of calories i set up (which is 1200 kcal) because i constantly overate.
SO, fast forward to the day before yesterday: we went to a doctor with David. He has a problem with his skin, it's not a big deal but it's on his face and head, it started about 7-8 years ago, plenty of dermatologists have been visited without any of them being able to help. So a few months ago David's mom sees on TV a show about health and illnesses, and a herbalist (i don't know the proper name for this, a doctor who cures naturally, with plants and natural products, with special nutrition and emphacises positive thinking)...so a herbalist describes David's symptoms EXACTLY, and he also tells that this is something that dermatologists diagnose what David was diagnosed with by all the dermatologists he went to, but none could cure it. SO we tracked down this guy, he's 76 years old and lives at 3,5 hrs trainride from here, so we decided to go to him, maybe he can help David. We went and the guy (besides prescribing special herbal things and pills) told David this:
- sugar (no honey, no FRUITS besides apples, no sweets of any kind)
- no meat (besides fish)
- no dairy products
This was really tough for David because he lives for sweets and meat was a fundamental part of his nutrition too. But this probably is the reason why he ended up with this skin problem (and he also has other smaller problems with digestion, etc), so he understands that he has to do this.
And i decided to do it too. I'm not taking the pills and herbal teas and other things of course (because they aren't the best for everybody and they are also freakin' expensive) but i am skipping sweets and meat (i'm not cutting milk and yogurt but i will cut all other dairy products too - luckily David doesn't like milk and yogurt so it won't tempt him when he opens the fridge).
I wouldn't want to have a lot of things in the house that would be tempting for him, i know how hard it is when something you really like is forbidden but it's right in front of you, it will also be easier to cook this way, and this meal plan will be beneficial for me too, i hope that this way it will be easier to stay on track. I also found it hard to say no to sweets and bad stuff that he was constantly eating, so from now on it will be much easier for me too.

So i planned my meals for 3 days - this was 3 days ago! :)
Day 1 was great! I wasn't hungry and i stayed in range!
Day 2 was bad. It started with me not being able to eat my breakfast+lunch (although i prepared it religiously in the morning) because i was busy (i only had my smoothie) and i ended up eating something not-so-good. This wouldnt've been a problem YET because i could've managed the rest of the day well BUT when i got home i got in a fight with my boyfriend and that made me attack the kitchen. The sad thing was that A LOT wasn't yet ENOUGH. I needed to eat more, my mind was fixated on food, i couldn't get enough. This could still have been compensated with only an hour of aerobics (which i did want to do) and i could've gotten back to a deficit of about 700 kcal for the day (which was initially planned) BUT a friend of ours called that he needed a lift because he got into a tiny bit of trouble (not legal :) ), so we went to pick him up and afterwards he asked if we'd like to go get pizza. We did go. I thought i'd skip the pizza and just drink some water since i filled myself at home BUT when we got there i noticed on the menu that they had the pizzas in mini size too (which wasn't too mini BTW) SO i couldn't resist and ordered one (although i pretty much filled myself completely at home just 2 hour earlier)...and i also ordered a 1 oz bottle of coke too, just for fun...
Needless to say, i didn't do that hour of aerobics after we got home either...
So yeah, day 2 - i messed up. :) Now that i think back it's kinda funny really. :)) It's funny to think back and see how i was twisted round and round by the THINGS that happened AROUND me without MY control.
Well anyways, today is a new day, it's day 3, 9 in the morning, i have my smoothie and first salad of the day prepared, so it will be good. I'm absolutely sure i won't starve today, i'm sure i'll have time to eat so it will be good. :)
Also, I will plan my meals for the next 3 days today after work!
Have a nice day everybody! :)

I've planned my meals for monday, tuesday and wednesday just now. I skipped tomorrow (sunday) because we'll dine at a restaurant and their menu's not on the internet so i have no idea what i'll have. I'm planning on consuming 1120 kcal on those 3 days. I'll eat the same menu on all three days. I'll be traveling on thursday so that will need planning but my wednesday will be free so i'll have the time to plan.
I realised that i'm basing too much on exercise and i end up not doing my exercises because i'm lazy and tired so i mess up and i get disappointed. I want to eat less food! Weight loss is 80% food 20% exercise. Food is what i want to focus on right now because i'm many times too tired and stressed to work out. If i'll manage to work out i'll allow myself to eat more (about as much as i burned actually). Also, if i eat more than planned i can compensate with doing a little cardio. I know how important exercise is but i'm in a state of tiredness all day long each and every day, i can't make myself go in the other room and i hate myself for it but i gotta make it work so this is my solution for now. Maybe 4 days later i'll learn that it doesn't work for me but i'll try. The meals i planned are great by the way. Grilled chicken salad would be the best name to call it, it has: 100 gr grilled chicken, 100 gr lettuce, 150 gr cucumber, 50 gr carrotts, 100 gr sweet corn, 150 gr mexican vegetable mix (cooked), 1 egg and 100 gr yogurt dressing. Yupp, that's about 800 g = 475 kcal. I'll have TWO of this, yupp, 2 salads and besides that i'll have a shake with 300 ml milk, 100 gr frozen cherries and 12 gr of Forever Lite Shake (it's a protein-vitamin thingie with vanilla taste).
I'm really eager to try this because I W A N T R E S U L T S !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
