Off to school

Monday, April 06, 2009

Good morning everyone!

It's 9.10 am here and I'm off to school in a minute. But not before having breakfast though! I'll have some plain yogurt with berries, water and green tea. I don't feel like eating much in the mornings but I know it's healthy to have at least something to get your metabolism working! Besides, I don't want to feel tired during my morning classes.

I was so tired this morning I could barely keep my eyes open. But I feel a lot better now! I'm excited about today. It'll be full of healthy choices and steps towards my goal. I'll ask a friend of mine to take a walk with me later today. It's so much fun to have someone to walk (and talk!) with.

I better go now or I'll be late. I'll have my vitamins and calcium supplements before I go! I want my body to get all the healthy things it needs.

(By the way, I always get really nauseous when I take my multivitamins. Does this ever happen to you?)

Have a great day everyone! emoticon emoticon

(Me right now trying to stay awake! Haha!)

    I try not to take any pills on an empty stomach becuase it cann cause problems. So, eat something first, then take your vitamins so that's not all that's there to digest. Breakfast keeps your body going so you don't lose focus later in the morning!

A relaxing Sunday

Sunday, April 05, 2009

Today was such a lovely, relaxing day. I got back on track, had a great time with my baby, made healthy veggie soup for dinner and just enjoyed myself. Now I better get ready for bed - school starts at 10 am tomorrow morning. Back to the usual routines! Easter is right around the corner already though and I got at least Good Friday off - maybe even Thursday as well! We'll see. Anyway, I'm off to bed now. Sweet dreams everyone!

That's me earlier today. I took picture's of today's outfit but I didn't have time to upload them on the laptop. Maybe I'll just post them tomorrow - or maybe not!

Sleep tight! emoticon

    I'm glad you had a relaxing day! (Mine was filled with crazy family, so I'm super super jealous!) I'm sure school will go well, have a good Monday tomorrow :D

That's it. I've had enough!

Sunday, April 05, 2009

So here's the deal: I woke up today feeling a bit hungry. My boyfriend T made breakfast (baguette with cheese and red peppers & chocolate cereal with nonfat milk). Before I knew it, I was eating the leftover chocolate from last night (yes, I had chocolate) and some liquorice candy while watching TV. And then it hit me like never before.


It was like I suddenly woke up from this haze I've been living in for the last few weeks and realized that I seriously can't keep this up without gaining weight. It's the reality of this situation. I think I've been avoiding the thought of that and ignoring the consequences of my actions but I no longer can't - and nor do I want to.

The truth is that I am going to gain weight if I keep eating like this. I'm going to feel miserable and my self-esteem and self-confidence will be shattered. I'll have to start over and lose all that weight once again. No, no, no. I am not going to let it get that far. I put away the chocolate and the unhealthy foods that cause me to get cravings and I made a promise to myself.

I am going to be my own best friend from now on.

I am going to take the best care of myself I possibly can. I won't destroy my health and confidence by overeating. THAT'S OVER NOW. I haven't been this confident in my entire life. I refuse to go back to my old ways. I know I have the power to stop that from happening.

Today I'm going to give my body a break. For the rest of the day (it's 2.15 pm here in Finland) I'm going to drink green tea and lots and lots of water and eat nonfat yogurt with fruit and berries. I need that. And I'll also plan ahead for the next few days so it'll be easier for me to stay on the right track.

I'll update again later and let you guys know how I'm doing! And maybe I'll even post a picture of today's outfit! (I love fashion and coming up with different outfits for myself; posting the pictures here is a great idea for me because it inspires me to look my best everyday and take good care of myself!)

    I love green tea-great idea! I usually drimk 8 cups of tea a day, also my water! Beats eating mindlessly. Reaching for tea or water helps curb cravings for something else. Most of our cravings are our body's way of asking for water-not food!

After reading a few eye-opening articles about motivation here on Sparks, I realized that the problem isn't the fact that I'm not motivated. Not at all. I still am determined to lose weight - I think about it all the time, I want it more than anything else. The problem is that I'm making really bad decisions at the moment. Everyone has two different sides to them: the hedonistic side that wants immediate gratification and is ready to give into cravings, and the other side that wants more abstract things, like weight loss, health, or to look more attractive. I've been giving into my hedonistic side lately. And to say that I lack motivation makes the problem worse because it makes it seem much more mysterious and out of my control. It makes me passive. I sit on the couch, eating popcorn and drinking soda, telling myself: "All I need is my motivation back and I'll be fine. I'll stop eating when I feel motivated again". Umm, excuse me? That's a load of crap. I AM motivated. The only problem is that I CHOSE to have popcorn and sit in front of the TV for hours on end instead of going for a walk and having something healthy to snack on. I made that choice, and I have to take responsibility for it. It may not have been a good decision, no. But it was my own valid, grown-up decision - and there are reasons behind why I made that choice.

The thing is, I have to get real about my situation. I make the decisions that make me or break me. You can't have your cake and eat it too - there has to be priorities in life. And right now my number one priority is getting in shape and becoming the healthy and happy young woman I know I really am. That means I have to stop blaming the lack of motivation for my relapse and be responsible for - and aware of - the choices I make along the way.

After all, I want to do this. I really want to lose weight and be healthy. I want to learn to follow a balanced meal plan and work out so that my body becomes strong and healthy. That'll feel so much better than having the entire cheesecake for dessert.
