Met my goals today

Thursday, March 12, 2009

For the first time since coming back to Sparks, I met all my nutritional goals! It's amazing how much you can actually eat and still lose weight! I know I don't feel deprived at all! It's amazing. I've been working out as planned - which makes me feel so good about myself! - and eating healthy meals regularly. I'm confident and happy. AND I'VE LOST FOUR POUNDS since coming back here! How cool is that!? I couldn't be happier. I feel fit, energetic, sexy and beautiful. I know I can make this dream come true now.

It's almost weekend again. Time really flies sometimes, doesn't it? I'm going to my parents' tomorrow and I have two different birthday parties to attend to over the weekend. Which means: temptations, temptations, temptations... But I know I'll keep it all in balance! Thank god I have Sparks to help me do that. It makes it so much easier.

I should put up new pictures on my page. I have so many new ones on my laptop! Maybe I'll do that tomorrow. Now I have to go take a shower and get ready for bed. Sweet dreams everyone!

A night out with friends

Saturday, March 07, 2009

I'm going out for drinks with my childhood friend and sister tonight. It should be fun! I'll try my best not to drink too much. I rarely ever drink alcohol so this is a special occasion of a kind. But I'm sure we'll have a great time!

I've had a great day so far. Healthy foods, walking outside, some shopping, talking with my sister... It's been great. And I feel great too. So much more self-confident and happy! I know I can do this now. I'm ready for it.

Have a great Saturday night everyone! Stay healthy and safe - and have fun!

Until tomorrow!


Staying on the right on weekends

Friday, March 06, 2009

It can be difficult. I've heard it many times: the infamous frase that goes "Weekends don't count". Umm, excuse me? Since when? Many people work hard during the week and lose it on the weekends. And, to be completely honest, I was one of those people. There's something very tempting about weekends. It's time to relax and go out, sit in cafés, go to restaurants, meet friends... It's awfully easy to believe that weekends don't count and it's completely okay to over-indulge a little - it's just a normal way to relax and charge your batteries before another week of hard work.

But who are we kidding? I bet none of us want to wake up on Monday morning feeling bloated and regretting having the whole pizza or four shots of tequila with friends. Of course, weekends ARE the time for relaxing and charging batteries - but for me, that means that I can start the new week with a positive outlook and a feeling of pride for making the right, healthy choices even during the weekend. And yes, I might have some foods I wouldn't have otherwise - but if I do, I'll do so IN MODERATION. It doesn't mean binging. It doesn't mean putting your diet on hold for Saturday and Sunday. It doesn't mean skipping your workouts. No. It means staying within your calorie limits, working out as usual, relaxing, having healthy and delicious foods and desserts that leave you feeling happy and satisfied (instead of feeling guilty). It means commiting to your new healthy lifestyle AT ALL TIMES.

And don't get me wrong, I like having a bit of ice cream, some popcorn with a good movie or some dark chocolate after a meal. If I deny myself those pleasures completely I most likely will end up binging at some point. It's better to include all your favourite foods into your diet but also remember that all of your food and exercise choices must stay in balance.

So, this weekend I'm going to:

- Work out as usual
- Stick to my meal plan
- Stay within my calorie range
- Update Sparks
- Have treats IN MODERATION
- Enjoy myself!

And I promise you: By doing all this, I'll feel much, much better when the weekend is over! Have a great Friday everyone!


Tired but happy

Thursday, March 05, 2009

This has been a pretty tough day with school from 10 am to 6 pm, a one-hour walk, grocery shopping, cleaning the flat and cooking dinner. But I'm glad I've still had time - and the energy - to do all the things I had planned for today. I wasn't feeling like working out after coming home from school but I did because I knew how proud of myself I would be for sticking to my plan. And I was right. I feel content. Today was another day of lifestyle change success.

I'm extremely motivated to do this right this time. And I want to stay motivated too when the times get rough and the cravings suddenly start. I just finished working with my Motivation Work Sheet and I'm going to hang it on my closet door (on the backside) where I will see it every day. I know it'll help me stay focused on my goals and remind me of what I really want - a brownie or a sexy bikini body for summer?
