So, the day is almost over and I'm glad to tell you that it went really well. Friday is my official treat day (which basically means that I'll have a bit of chocolate in the evening while watching a movie with Tommi). However, it used to always turn into a binge which would end up ruining my evening and making me sad. This time I decided to keep it under control and enjoy my Friday night. AND I DID! I used to have popcorn and chocolate and ice cream and lots of other stuff that made me feel miserable. This time I had a bit of dark chocolate and a few glasses of Coke. I still ended up going over my calorie limit but not as badly as I used to before. I'm definitely on my way to a new kind of lifestyle! I refuse to feel guilty now. I won't ruin my lovely Friday night by feeling sorry for myself. Next week I'll make sure I won't go over 1550 calories and I'll feel even better! Live and learn, right? :)
I decided I needed to find a healthy role model. You know, someone to motivate me to get fit again. In the past, I've often admired models (like, really stick-thin ones) so I wanted to find a healthy, curvy, sexy woman to look up to. A more realistic goal, something to keep me motivated. AND I FOUND ONE. Beyoncé Knowles. I've loved her for years. She's such a beautiful, talented and sexy woman. A real motivation! No more looking up to stick-thin models. I don't even want to look like that! I want to love my curves! I think me and Beyoncé have a similar body type so that's what makes it even more motivating for me.
Ok, that's enough for today. Tomorrow is a new day! Hope you're all well!
