How has your day been so far? Over here in Finland the weather was lovely and warm today and I feel so happy since summer is so close already! I'm so not a winter person! Today when I went for my walk I was enjoying the beautiful day so much that I walked non-stop for an hour and a half. It felt great! We just had dinner (healthy baguettes with lots of veggies and low-cal & low-fat turkey) and I'm about to start working on some school stuff in a little while.
Oh, it's settled now - I have my hair dresser appointment on May 15th! Until then I'll work really hard and lose as much weight as I can before that - I'll reward myself by updating my style! As I said earlier, I'm planning to get more layers and maybe some highlights as well (not too light though, I'm so used to being a brunette! Haha!). I'm hoping it'll end up looking something like this:
I'm also gonna buy a bikini for the summer once I'm done with the bootcamp and look as sexy and firm as I possibly can after only a month of daily exercise. I'm thinking of something like this:
Cool, right? (Obviously, I wouldn't look as good/thin as her. But still!)
And, one day, I'm hoping too look a lot like this on the beach wearing that cute bikini:
Beyoncé definitely is my idol. She's such a strong woman with a gorgeous body and lots and lots of talent. I think we share the same kind of body type and, once I lose this weight, I hope my body will look a lot like hers. I have thick thighs (mostly muscle) and curves like she does:
She's so cool.
Ok, I'm gonna go now so I get at least some school stuff done today. Bye! Have a great day!
Oh and by the way, since you asked Lucygoddess, I posted a lot of pictures of Tommi on one of my blog entries a couple of days back! I'll add some pics of him to my album as well.

Oh gosh, what a day! As I said tomorrow, today was our 2-year engagement anniversary. Tommi bought me pink roses and we went out for dinner and after that we went to movies to see Accidental husband (which was so hilarious!). All in all, it truly was a wonderful day and I'm so incredibly happy that I have such an amazing boyfriend as Tommi. He's my everything.
Now, the only down-side is that I went way over my calories today. I'm not beating myself up for it too much though, today was a special occasion. Tomorrow I'm getting back on track, I swear! I walked a lot around the town today so I got at least hour and a half of cardio but I didn't do any strength training today. Tomorrow, tomorrow, tomorrow. I'll go back to my normal ways tomorrow.
I'm really tired now and I'm going to get ready for bed. Hope you're all doing well! HUGS!
Me and my sister this weekend. I love her so much!

How's your Saturday looking so far? I hope you're all doing great and enjoying the weekend! I know I am - despite a minor setback I experienced earlier today. You know how I said I really could feel and see that I have lost some weight over these past two weeks when I have been working my butt off to get my weight loss going again? Well, I was really excited - and a little nervous, too - to weigh myself this morning. I stepped on the scale, closed my eyes and hoped for the best. When I opened my eyes I WAS SHOCKED!! Get this: not only had I not lost ANY weight - I HAD ACTUALLY GAINED TWO POUNDS SINCE THE LAST TIME I WAS HERE!!! WHAT THE HELL??? I was so devastated and upset afterwards that I could've burst into tears. I told my mother about this and she just couldn't believe what I was saying. She told me she had immediately noticed that I had lost a lot of weight since the last time I was here two weeks ago. She said she was about to ask me how much weight I had lost. Well, apparently NOT A POUND. Quite the contrary. I don't know what to think. I feel thinner. My clothes fit better. And yet the scale doesn't agree with me at all.
I have worked out like CRAZY lately. I've been eatigd 1200-1300 calories a day. I've been a good girl - and quite frankly, I don't think I deserve this. THIS IS WHY I HATE THE SCALE. I was feeling so good before I stepped on it this morning. I was considering the possibility that maybe I've just firmed up my body a lot since and built more muscle (that happens to me very easily, thanks to the genes I got from my dad) and that's why the number on the scale hasn't gone down. Could that be it?
I try not to care about the scale. I try not to feel like a failure. After all, I've been doing really well and I'm so proud of myself for doing this for myself. But it would be really nice to see my work start to pay off, too...
I had a lovely day despite the weigh-in incident. I worked out a lot and did my 20 minutes of strength training like every day this week. I'm currently at about 1000 calories for today and it's 9:40 pm - I'll still have a little something healthy for a late dinner so I get up to 1200 cals.
I really want to see a change in my weight the next time I come here. And I'm willing to work harder if that's what it takes.
Hope you're all doing better than I am when it comes to weight loss! Enjoy your Saturday!
