I'll be honest. I'm having a bad day. A terrible day, in fact. One of those days when you feel frustrated and miserable and don't even know why. I just want to kick and scream and pick a fight with someone. Maybe it's because I'm PMSing right now or MAYBE, just maybe, it's because I'm craving CHOCOLATE so bad and it makes me so angry that I can't have any!!! ...Or maybe I'm craving chocolate so bad because I'm PMSing... WHO KNOWS. Uhhhhh I knew this was bound to happen at some point. I'll just have to suck it up now and stay strong. The cravings will go away eventually. My bad mood will go away. Tomorrow will be better. It has to be.
I consumed 1,342 calories today and burned 524 calories. Not bad! I just wish my bad mood would disappear, as well as the cravings.
Maybe I have to change things up a little to avoid boredom and to keep the cravings away. Try new foods and snacks.
I hope you are having a better day than I am!! Lots of love,

I'm going to update really quickly before heading to bed. It's been another healthy day for me! Ended up consuming 1,375 calories which is good! Tomorrow I'm aiming for around 1,200 calories :) I didn't get to do any cardio today except for the 15 minute walk to the grocery store because I wasn't feeling well. I think I might be coming down with something... I hate being sick :( Let's just hope I'll feel better tomorrow!
I created a list of monthly rewards today! I'll share it here with you guys tomorrow. Now I need some sleep!
Hope you are all having a healthy, lovely, AMAZING day!!

Today I ended up consuming 1,357 calories and I burned 290 calories by walking. I feel happy and content! This is going so smoothly now that I'm giving my body and mind time to adjust to the changes that are going on in my life.
I know I've blogged about this before, but I can't help it: today I want to post a few pictures that motivate me to do better. In the past, I used to have such unhealthy role models (emphasis on the word 'model') but I've later on started to think about how I'm doing myself more harm than good by looking up to those stick thin, 6 foot tall women that are on the verge of starvation. A few years ago, I decided to find new role models; women with similar body shape as mine and who are about my height. And what did I find? Kim Kardashian. She is the epitome of beauty. Her body is flawless, so feminine and curvy. And she's my height! Now, I do realize I will never look like her and it's okay! She's just a healthy role model for me to look up to. Whenever I look at pictures of her I immediately feel like I want to push it a little harder - and yet, I don't feel depressed about my shape or size. Someone she makes me feel like it's okay to be feminine, it's okay to be curvy (as opposed to when I was 12-14 years old and thought that women are only beautiful when they are size zero).
So, here she is, my number 1 inspiration when it comes to losing weight and looking good, Kim Kardashian:
Who WOULDN'T be inspired by her?
Hope you're all having a healthy day so far!!!

I did really well today! I did 85 mins of cardio and burned 441 calories. I consumed 1200 calories which was my goal for today. Perfect!
On another note, I'm feeling a little stressed today. I've recently had to make some changes in my life and I feel like I owe an explanation to certain people. I hate that. I shouldn't be forced to justify my actions when I know I've made the right choice.
Oh well, I might as well tell you guys what's going on. As you may or may not know, I've been studying journalism in a private school for the past few months. It's just a one-year prep-course but it costs A LOT of money. The spring semester alone would've cost me 1,600 euros which is 2,070 US dollars. My parents can't help me financially so I would've had to pay for all of this on my own. Now, the problem is that I don't have the money. I got a student loan but it just isn't enough since I have to pay for other things, too. I decided it would be best for me to quit the course since it's not like I would've graduated anyway (it's just a prep-course). I decided to focus on work instead (I work for a local newspaper as a journalist/assistant). The thing is, now I feel like people are judging me for quitting the course and I'm sick of explaining myself to everyone.
This is just stressing me out. I should learn to not care too much about what other people think. After all, you can't please everyone.
I better get ready for bed. Maybe I'll feel less stressed tomorrow.
