I'm alive

Thursday, May 07, 2009

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still alive and doing well. I know I haven't been updating lately but that's only because I've been ridiculously busy. I'm not kidding: I've had to study, study, study and study all the time basically. Now I'm finally done with all the stuff I was supposed to do and I can relax. I'm so incredibly tired. I almost feel asleep while taking a shower a while ago. My eyes were already closed and I was practically dreaming. That means I need to go to bed right now! I've been working out every day and I've managed to eat somewhat properly. I actually think I'm losing weight.

Anyway, I just wanted to update really quickly in case you're wondering where I went all of a sudden. Don't get me wrong, I love Sparks and I appreciate all the help I've gotten, but this can be so incredibly time-consuming at times. I thought it would be more important to study properly and spend all the free time I possibly could working out.

So I'm still on the right track! Hope you're all doing well! I've missed you and Sparks! :)

    I'm glad to hear that you are able to keep to your goals despite the busyness. I have been suffering from the same school bogged down busy that keeps me from SP too. It all will come to an end in time!

    Sounds like you have your priorities in the right place to me! I'm glad that you were able to find time to work out and eat right and everything as you hit finals--that's easier said then done.

    Study must come first because it is the most important thing right now. Next, good nutrition, exercise and adequate sleep so you can concentrate. THEN, when all your priorities have been met, the fun can begin. Never apologize for having to choose what is the most important.

Bootcamp - Day 13: An amazing day!

Friday, May 01, 2009

We went on a picnic today:

I'll post more pictures tomorrow - Google Chrome apparently isn't willing to co-operate with me today.

We had such a lovely day! We sat there by the lake Päijänne, enjoyed the sunshine, had some champagne and had some good picnic foods I had prepared for us. Granted, I overate. I don't even know how bad the damage is since I haven't tracked it yet (I will in a minute). Tommi and I went for a long walk later in the evening so I managed to burn some of it off!

Hope you all had a wonderful day too!!

Bootcamp - Day 12

Thursday, April 30, 2009

So, my day is almost over and I'm ready put on my pajamas and go to sleep. What a day it was! It seems I'm in a constant hurry. But fortunately I got tomorrow off as it's 1st of May (we call it Vappu here in Finland) and it's a huge celebration here. Parades and picnics and parties. I don't know if they celebrate it anywhere else than in Finland and Sweden - but just think of Labor Day, it's pretty much the same I think. I'm not exactly sure though. But it's a national holiday and that's fine with me; I could use a day off. Tommi and I were planning to go on a picnic tomorrow! That should be fun! Although I'm pretty sure I'll go way over my calories but we'll see. It's okay if I do though since I'm not going to hold back too much on a celebration that happens only once a year!

Today's been another sunny and warm spring day. I really enjoyed my 70-minute long walk and felt really good afterwards too. I also did a little cleaning at the flat and it looks all festive now! Haha.

I was just thinking today how good I feel. I suddenly realized that when I look in the mirror I no longer see only flaws and imperfections. I'm actually pretty happy with the way I look! It's such an amazing feeling and I'm thankful for it.

Enjoy your day! HUGS!!

    I see a beautiful young woman when I look at your pictures! When you can look at yourself and be happy, that is really all that matters. Enjoy your holiday and tell us all about it later! emoticon

Bootcamp - Day 11: Before and after and somewhere in between

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

I just found some old pictures on my laptop that I thought I'd share with you guys.

These pictures were taken in Italy five years ago (when I was 16). I weighed about 115 pounds.

Haha I look so young! My dad didn't even recognize me in that last picture when I showed it to him last weekend.

These pictures were taken in Turkey last August when I was at about 176 pounds. I had already lost about 14 pounds but I still weighed 22 pounds more than I do now:

HAHA OH MY GOD! I'm like: "I'M SO BUSTED!" Look at that pile of french fries... I'm glad I know better now.

I don't even have pictures of me at my heaviest (at 190 lbs) on my laptop but you can imagine what I looked like. Not pretty, I swear. But now that I'm looking at these pictures I have to say that I don't think I want to get down to 115 pounds anymore. Back then I didn't have almost any curves and I've gotten used to the idea that "real women have curves". Actually, I'm perfectly happy as it is. But I'm going to keep eating healthy and I'll work out daily, which I'm sure will make me thinner, fitter, healthier - and, if possible - even happier than I am today.

Hope you're all doing great!

    Good Grief girl. The results from the Turkey pics to now are phenomenal. You look outstanding. I know what you mean about knowing to do better than those fries, but OMG didn't they just look yummy! Throw a little low fat ranch dressing to dip those puppies in & "baby I'm there."

But again! You look fantastic...we all knew it, we all know it, and now you've got the before pics to prove it (though you were pretty there too...just a little heavier). emoticon

    I'm so happy that you realized you don't want to get that skinny! You're being realistic because you're not 16 anymore. I also realized that I have to stop wanting to be some crazy weight, instead I just want to be at my pre-pregnancy weight of 140lb. wich is normal and achievable. If I do loose more than that'll be a plus but not a must! Who hoo I rhymed! LOL!

    I did a similar thing today, going through pictures when I was 20 lbs thinner and just thinking back to how I can't wait. But then I thought about my goal weight (120), the last time I was that thin was when I was 14 years old. I'm excited to take 7 years off my fat, if you think about it that way it is a bit more cheery.

    Being thin as a rail isn't everything, as you found out! My daughter, who is much healthier now, said that at one time she was tired of looking like a 10 year old boy. That was before she developed her "curves". We always laugh about that. But she was 16 and embarassed! After 2 children, she says she'd never want to look like that again. Well, that day won't come again!
Enjoy your new life, where you are now and where you don't want to be again. You look gorgeous!

Bootcamp - Day 10

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Hey ladies!

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!)

Cute, non?

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.

    Well, I can guarantee you I wouldn't look like that in a bikini! You, however, should look just gorgeous!

    Dinner sounds yummy! Can't wait to see the "Beyonce-ish Transformation." You are lovely as is, but this should be pretty fabulous! I'm sure we won't have to beg you for pics!
