I had the most amazing walk outside today. It was sunny and a bit chilly already, too. It was dusk. The sky was still clear blue and the sun was shining; it made everything look golden and soft red. Everything was perfect. At that moment I realized how much there is to see in the world and how amazingly beautiful it can be. I don't want to waste my life worrying about things that, in the end, are absolutely meaningless. I want to lose all that negativity and stop letting food control my life (it doesn't anymore, thanks to SparkPeople). I know I sound really naive and it all sounds like a big cliché but world really is a wonderful place and I intend to make the most of my life here!
It's not hard to resist junk food and candy and all that crap I used to eat in a daily basis. I know it's not good for me. I now know that no matter if I eat twenty chocolate chip cookies or a whole pizza soaked in fat, it won't make me any happier. It WILL NOT make me whole or safe or happy. Instead, it WILL make me feel absolutely miserable. From now on, I'm going to do my best to be active and find things that bring me real happiness and satisfaction, things that make the emptiness and boredom go away.
I think I'll start going to a yoga class or something.
Stay positive everyone! WE CAN DO THIS. It's never too late!

As I'm typing this, it's 10.30 pm. I'm looking out the window and I see the city lights spreading all over down below. I don't have much to say today but I made a promise to myself (and it's also one of my FastBreak goals) to update my blog here daily. Today was pretty much like any other Tuesday. I went to school at 10 am, had a few classes (English history and scientific writing), came home to change and pick up my wallet and went shopping for a few hours. I walked around for two hours, mostly window shopping and getting to know my new home town. It's so beautiful. The trees are starting to change color and you actually smell the freshness of autumn in the air. I came across a lovely farmer's market as well and I'm planning to go there again tomorrow when I have more time. In general, things are going amazingly well. I'm doing great with my new healthy lifestyle and I feel so different already.
I wish I had something interesting to tell you. Hmm. However, I'm tired and as I promised myself to get enough sleep every night I think I'll go take a shower now and go to bed.
I hope everyone is doing well!

I had a great day today. I had school from 10 am to 4 pm and it was really nice. I love learning new things about English literature, language, culture, history, grammar and whatnot. I never get sick of it. This week we'll also start to practice interpreting and translating different kinds of texts. I'm really excited!
Today I had three healthy and balanced meals, drank loads of water, ran up and down the stairs (we live on the 6th floor and the class room where most of my classes are held is on the 5th floor!) and walked for about 40 minutes. I feel amazing. Making healthy choices and small changes is much easier than I thought - and it'll make a huge different in the end! I'm eating much more vegetables and fruit these days and I'm seeing lots of other positive changes as well.
Let's hope my weight keeps going down and when I step on the scale again (when I visit my parents in a few weeks; I don't have a scale) I really hope to see a lower number than the last time!
Stay positive everyone! A demain,

I'm back, FINALLY. I haven't been able to update in a long time because we just moved and had to wait to get the internet connection up and running again. While I was gone I wasn't able to go through all the FastBreak strategies and I felt really bad because of it so I decided to start fresh and go back to the beginning. I'm going through the FastBreak stage again now. I just want to do this right this time. From now on I'll be tracking my intake and workouts daily and, of course, adding a new blog entry every day.
Although I didn't have SparkPeople to support me along the way while I was gone, I managed to stay somewhat focused on my goals and even lose a few pounds! I'm currently at 172 lbs. I feel great! I can't wait to get started with the program PROPERLY and lose the rest of this extra weight!
It's so beautiful outside. I love autumn. All the beautiful colors and that fresh smell of the autumn wind. I think I'll ask Tommi (my fiancé) to come take a walk outside with me. It'll be fun. Besides, I need the exercise!
