I had fun shopping in Helsinki with my mom and my sister today! I bought some sexy lingerie as a reward since I've been doing so this month :) We also went to a museum and had a lovely lunch in a cozy restaurant. Yesterday's bad mood is definitely gone now! I guess it was just the PMS then.
In regards to the blog I posted yesterday, I agree that denying yourself any food completely is definitely counterproductive and just not a good idea. My plan was to stay away from sweets (especially chocolate) till the end of the month and then, gradually and in moderation, add it back to my diet. I wasn't planning on removing it from my diet completely! However, now that the cravings have started full-force, I decided to have just a little bit of chocolate today to calm things down. And it helped! The cravings are gone and the chocolate didn't wreck my diet. Thanks to you guys, I feel so much better today! :)
ALSO, I LOST 2.2 POUNDS THIS WEEK! I weighed in this morning and was so pleased to see a new number on the scale! WOO HOO! I feel amazing. This time, I'm sticking to this for the long haul. This is my new life, this is the new me.

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!!!
