I guess if I were really on the TV BLC I would be sent home! <BR> <BR> I have let down my team and I feel miserable. My laxness is causing us points but more than it is making me wonder if I am a good team member. I find excuses around the corner not to eat right or procrastinate. Last week, I barely exercised with the pretext that I was busy prepa...

The first time around, I really didn't get to my goal weight but I realized how motivated and challenged I was to know I have to publicly disclose my weight to my fellow team members, as well as my hours for cardio and weight training. In addition to that, I had also made new Sparkfriends. <BR> <BR> This time around, I want to make better than w...

I hope this finds all of you well and on your way to reaching your healthiest weight and fittest self. These past weeks have been very crazy for me and hence my long unexplained absence. <BR> I struggled a lot with work commitments as well as family life and bingeing added itself to the mix a couple of time. I didn't have to motivation to exercise and would find excuses to why I would not log in. This eventually resulted in a weight gain (sigh) ...

I believe it is good to share these goals with you my fellow sparkers for some accountability. <BR> To begin with: <BR> 1. Exercise for a total of 10,000 mins for 2013 <BR> 2.

I turn to God. I am a firm believer and my instinct always take me to Him, when I am stressed/troubled/unhappy or sad. <BR> <BR> 2. I make a phone call or meet with close family and friends. Unfortunately, my family leaves far away from me so I can only place phone calls at this time. <BR> <BR> <BR> 3. I go for a run. It relaxes me a lot! <BR> <BR> Mon, 17 Dec 2012 07:20:01 EST Day 7- NOT Binge-free http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5165214 <em>39</em> <em>39</em> <BR> So this blog was delayed because I had internet connection problems and no, it was a binge-free day. I abused of the fact that Sparkpeople increased my caloric intake because I was burning too much calories and in the process of adjusting my meal plan, I ingested a few too many calories in the form of the snacks. <BR> Disappointment, I know but I don't give up. <BR> <BR> <BR> Thanks for the continued support. <BR> <BR> Onto next time <BR> Keep on Sparking Thu, 13 Dec 2012 09:04:54 EST Day 6- Binge Free http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5163638 Tuesdays are my busiest days: work from 9.30am-9pm (I was actually able to get out earlier today because of exams). <BR> Yes, I made it binge-free, but I had home-made chocolate chip muffin (not sure how you will feel about it). We had a presentation seminar today and one of my colleagues thought we were to bring food today, but instead, it is next Thursday. <BR> To be honest, I don't call it binging because I limited myself to 1, just 1 muffin. I was offered several times other servings, but...

So, uh-hmmm, my eyes had plenty of times to look at the chips, chocolate, donuts, pizza, you name it, my eyes saw them. <BR> For some time, I had a conversation with myself. It went like this: "just have a piece of chocolate, you are in the caloric range, it wouldn't do you any bad"; "no, I wouldn't, I am binge-free for 5 days and I intend to stay that way, plus I d...

And for those who were sick, injured, etc, I hope you are getting better. <BR> Well, last week, I started a 21-day binge free challenge and I use my Sparkblog to keep me accountable. I had trouble earlier in the week with my nutrition intake (would be having a lot of sugary stuff at night), which prompted me to enroll in this challenge and to make myself accountable. I have to say, I don't regret it. I am proud o...

I think that the idea of me having to come here and talk about binging, helps me resist it, but most importantly, I have not had the urge. <BR> I just came back from McDonalds, and I didn't even survey their burger menu. I just went straight ahead to order what I had planned: Southwestern Salad with Grilled Chicken (no dressing). <BR> <BR> Today's meals: <BR> 1. Golean cereal with skim milk and apple <BR> 2.

To be honest, I am one of those individuals who didn't resist the high-fat, high-calorie treats during the Holiday, and it took me a while (only last Friday) to be able to go back on track. <BR> At first, I started feeling bad and ashamed, but then I remembered all the blogs I have read here on SP and all the encouragement I have received and continue to receive and decided not to let myself go down the spiral. <BR> So, ...

I am so glad I purchased it. The more I read, the more I am motivated to reaching my goals, especially on a day like today, where I was a little bumped that I was still in a plateau. The chapter of today, as well as my blog of a few minutes ago, really lifted me up. <BR> <BR> Today we talk about fire. What's this thing called fire? Well, fire, at Sparkpeople is passion.

This week, I made it into my meal plan to try a few recipes: 2 that I found online (with 1 from SP) and 1 from my very own creativity. <BR> Thanks to the Healthy cooking challenge, I have embraced the idea of meal planning.

Fitness is comprised of the building blocks Exercise, Nutrition, Stress Management and Sleep. <BR> To begin with, I thought fitness was only about exercising and therefore I was quite surprised to see that exercise is just a component of it. Fitness is more holistic in the sense that it involves the body and the mind. <BR> To begin with, Chris talked about something very poignant: we live in a quick-fix society...

As for me, I am soooo tired. I slept at 4.30am this morning and woke up at 9am because I had some errands to run. I am still up because I had an evening session that lasted quite long.

Today, after a long time, I met not only my caloric goal, but also my individual nutrient goals.

There I said it. <BR> I usually am not good for crying out for help, but I really really need it. <BR> I got back home on Sunday night (Thank God! And we have heat and electricity) <BR> But since then, I have not been able to go back to planning my meals, following a healthy diet (mostly, I have to admit I had chocolate chip cookies and granola bars) and tracking. <BR> *sigh* <BR> <BR> I hope all is well with you guys...

Because I am a creature of habit (i love to exercise at 7 am), I tried to convince myself that i could not exercise because it was late and I had much to do. It was partly true since I wanted to catch <BR> up with some grading I had to do. <BR> By 3.30pm, I took a nap and on waking, I had a battle with myself as to whether or not I should hit the gy...
