I'm so lucky

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Today was another wonderful day spent in the sun with friends. I'm so lucky I have such amazing people in my life and a family that really loves me. Today I said bye to my parents and Amanda and Tommi and I headed back to Lahti. Now we're here at our lovely little flat. It's good to be home again!

It's supposed to be really warm and sunny tomorrow so Tommi and I are probably going to the beach for the day. We'll pack some healthy snacks to eat over there if we get hungry. I'll swim over there (that'll burn at least some calories, right? ;)) and work out when I get home in the evening.

I just LOVE summer.

Later ladies!

That's me just now, ready to go to bed.

Such a lovely day!

Tuesday, June 23, 2009

I had such a great time with Amanda and Tommi today. I woke up at 9, put on my bikini and went straight to the beach. It was really warm and the sky was that beautiful shade of blue that it always is in the summer. Amanda joined me an hour later and then we just spent a few hours lying there in the sun. I got a nice tan (I tan pretty easily) and had a lovely time. Tommi came to the beach too later and then we went to his parents' place to have a late lunch and just hung out. Then we decided to go for a bike ride together since it was such a beautiful day. After a two-hour bike ride I was completely exhausted but really happy that I finally got to work out properly! I fell down once though which wasn't nice. There's a small scratch on my left knee and it hurts a little. But it was still worth it! Then after the workout Tommi and I went for a little swim but the water wasn't very warm (I was freezing!). It was so much fun though!

I really feel like things are looking up for me. I have a good feeling about tomorrow!

Hope you're all well! I'm off to bed now, I'm so very tired. I think I might be coming down with a cold or something. Let's hope it's nothing!

Later beauties!

    I'm glad you had a good time. Take care of yourself & get plenty of rest, eat plenty of "healthy" foods & get your fluids.

Nothing new here

Monday, June 22, 2009

The reason why I haven't updated as much is simply that I have nothing to say. Things are still pretty much the same over here: I'm still trying to get my act together and start eating right (little luck). I want it so badly and yet I can't seem to get started. I'm really frustrated and a little depressed. Everything else is going great except this. I feel so stuck. I know what I have to do and when - and still I find myself making those same bad choices and coming up with excuses for eating too much and working out too litte.

Maybe tomorrow will be better.

    We all fall into a rut now & then, diva! You'll get back with it. Hang in there...we are here for you when you return.

    Hopefully tomorrow will go better! Sorry to hear that you have hit a rough spot.

Is it possible to figure out why it is you are making bad choices? Like, are you grabbing a candy bar because you are depressed, or in a hurry, or too hungry to wait for better food? Because if you know why you are doing it, maybe you can set things up to minimize that--like recognizing when you are eating because you are unhappy and comforting yourself in other ways, like writing in a journal or lighting a scented candle or something. Or if you are eating because you are too rushed for anything healthier, maybe making some healthy meals and snacks in advance, like over the weekend, so that when you are busy you can just grab and go and still eat something nutritious. And if you are eating too much because you are letting yourself get too hungry, you can try eating more but smaller meals and snacks over the course of the day.

The same thing goes for when you know you should work out but find yourself making excuses not to--what are your real reasons? Because if, for example, time is an issue, you can maybe find ways to squeeze in 10 minutes here and there instead of having to carve out an hour at all once. Or if you are too tired at the end of the day, try fitting it in first thing in the morning (which I have to do,, also, because I tend to run out of time if I wait until the end of the day, where as if I do it first thing it's done and out of the way). If you don't like the gym, find things you can do at or near home.

It's hard. And it's even harder I think to do both at the same time. I've been doing pretty good at the working out department--but failing again and again at eating right. It's either too much, or at least too much of the wrong things..... Sigh. Still working on it. But at least I'm starting to make sense of the trends when things go wrong so maybe I can do better next time.

I'm back!

Saturday, June 20, 2009


I'm back from the beach house now (actually I'm at my parents' now). We had a great time over there: lots of food, naturally, but I think I did pretty well. And now it's time to really start focusing on making those healthy choices and getting in shape. I really want to get in shape - for real now!

I'm so tired right now and I'm probably going to bed as soon as I'm done writing this. We had such a wonderful time over there at the beach house and stayed up late every night so I really need to get a good night's sleep tonight. That way I'll be full of energy tomorrow!

Saying bye-bye for a couple of days!

Thursday, June 18, 2009

Just wanted to let you guys know that I'm leaving for a couple of days. We're going to a beach house owned by Tommi's family to celebrate midsummer which is tomorrow (it's a huge deal here in Finland - people get together to celebrate and have bonfires and good food and music). I won't be able to update while I'm there. Just thought I'd let you know in case your wondering where I disappeared all of a sudden!

I'll do my best not to eat too much while I'm there. I'll probably be back here on Sunday! Have a lovely day everyone and take good care of yourself!!

Haha that's a picture of my 'new' hair like promised. I tried to color it very deep red-brown/mahogany but because it was so dark to begin with it just looks black/dark brown (especially in this picture). It looks different now though if you look close. It's kind of a softer shade now. I like it!
