Giving myself a chance!

Sunday, May 31, 2009

(I'm on the left, with my friend Anita on the right)
Hello everybody!
I haven't written a blog entry for almost two months now. I'd like to start writing a blog entry each day from now on in which I will write about what I exercised and ate that day, how I felt, etc.
I don't know if anybody will ever read them but I really need to express it, because, during the day, when I start to get angry and think of turning to food for comfort, of when I feel like I don't want to exercise because I'm not in the these moments, if I think of the fact that, no matter what happens during the day I'm gonna have to write it down at night, well....maybe it will make me want to do better.
I want to focus on 6 things:
-doing my exercise
-eating the right foods in the right quantities
-working hard, doing the best I can in our store (my boyfriend, Cristi and I have a chinese fast food)
-sleeping 8 hours
-being in a good mood
-not fighting with Cristi

I don't want to make this blog post very long, I will get into detail about many things later on.
So today: I did not do my planned exercise at all, I overate, I DID sleep 8 hrs (this one is the only good one), I didn't do everything I could for the store, I wasn't in a good mood at all, I DID fight with Cristi.
Oh well...I did have the chance to do all these things the right way, yet I didn't. But I have a good quote: "Start every workout with a clean slate; every meal with a clean plate." This is exactly what I'm gonna do. I'm gonna start tomorrow with a clean mind, not thinking about how bad yesterday went, but thinking about what this new day can bring. I know I'm not gonna be able to exercise tomorrow because I won't have time (although I could make time for it if I really wanted to...), but I have all the chances to eat right, work hard for our store, be in a good mood and get along well with Cristi.
I'm trying to make a habit of posting my blog entry every day, because it keeps me motivated and I would love to post things that I'm proud of.
Next week will be WEEK 1 of my program and I'm starting tomorrow morning with a clean mind.
So, I'll be back tomorrow night for updates.
Love for everyone,

BIIIG confession!

Sunday, April 05, 2009

I measured my weight today. I hate myself. I'm 156. My highest weight ever was 163, so I'm pretty close to that. I had 142 when I stopped my 'diet' 4 months ago. I stopped it because I had to start working looong (14-15 hour) days, I ate very calorie-packed foods, I ate much at a time, I didn't do any exercise...and here I am. Sometimes I ask myself that, if I had known that this was going to happen, would I have started, at the age of 21, to do this business? And you know what? I wouldn't have started it, if I would have known that this is the price. I'm not the person who blames it on bad luck/others/circumstances/bad karma/whatever, I'm the kind of person who says 'if my mind conceived it, I can achieve it'. But I'm stuck. Both financially, physically and mentally. Even in my relationship. Even with my friends. And the way out of this means more work. And, after all this, it's hard to even think of more work...but unfortunately I don't have a choice...

    Don't think of it as work! Think of exercise and healthy eating as blessing your body! :) It'll thank you for it.

Baby steps are the way to go! You can do it!

Perfect food-tracking yesterday - finally!

Monday, March 30, 2009

So yesterday was the first time in a long time that I managed to track everything that I ate! And I also ate healthy things too, like chicken breast and 3 types of fruits and I'm feeling pretty good about myself right now! :)

    I don't know why, but I've been religiously tracking my intake every day since joining on 3//9/09...very honest too!

I'm sure this get's a little tedious over time, but it's supposed to give you a handle on where the calories are coming from, and it works well in my current stage here.

Good luck w/your tracking.

tracking food...

Saturday, March 28, 2009

I started tracking my food, but it's pretty hard. I track my breakfast perfectly 'cause that's the only meal that I actually plan and have time to plan, but after breakfast I start not taking care of what I eat, because I get in the store, and I taste this and that and a little of this, a little of that, and I don't track it's not good. Plus not only am I a delivery-girl, but at the afternoons and all day on saturday and sunday I am serving, which means that I'm next to the food all the time...and it's delicious, so I taste and eat...and I'm totally out of tracking.
We'll probably hire a girl in a few weeks to be serving so it will probably be better...


Tiny but great news

Friday, March 27, 2009

I started tracking my food again, isn't that great? It's hard because I 'live' in a chinese fast food and I don't have the nutritional info for them and I can't find them on SP (european chinese is different from american, and SP only has the nutritional info for american chinese food), but I eat simple things that can be tracked.
Also, guess at what hour did I wake up this morning? Not 6 as usual, not 7, not 8, not 9 but 9.30!!!!! Oh, small pleasures in life! I had a great breakfast with eggs, ham, radishes (tiny little bit of chocolate too...), and I'm full of energy now and ready to kick some....okay, I'm not gonna kick anything, but I'm ready to this day!
So, everybody, have a great day, the sun is shining (here at least), I wish you a great day! :)
Take care,

    How wonderful for you I am so excited! I am looking very forward to April and getting my sparkrestart!!! It makes me very happy to hear that you got to sleep in a little. Also happy to hear about the nice weather I think when it is nice out the day always goes a little better.
