If you can do it now, than do it. Don’t keep pushing things off. My Poppop passed away last night out of nowhere and I thought to myself “I kept promising him that I’d make him dinner and a dessert for his birthday (which was a month ago) and i kept pushing it off thinking “i can do it next week” than the next week would come and I kept saying “ok next week”…and now its too late. I love you Poppop<3 tell nana we say hi.
An important message I believe everyone should take a minute to read or skim through :]
This past week I pigged out a little everyday but every other day I was working out for an hour. However, I did this because I realized last sunday that I’ve been torturing myself. I would only eat strictly fruit, veggies, and a little fish or chicken and whole grains. I would look miserable eating with everyone while I saw them eat whatever they want and still look the same. In my head I was thinking “if i eat that, i will gain weight and ruin all this hard work!” but now after a week of eating kinda piggish, I’m ready for a balance. In the beginning of this healthy journey, I ate a strict diet then last week I feel like I completely threw that out the window and indulged—ALOT…now I know what a healthy balance is. I finally feel like I can have a balanced healthy and yet indulging lifestyle—-not diet. I learned a lot these past couple weeks about how I need to indulge but also don’t indulge so much that i’m disregarding a healthy lifestyle. Through my struggles and accomplishments, I found a balance I can keep up with :] hope you all can do the same! Don’t let the numbers on the scale control you, don’t let society’s image thats suppose to be “beautiful and skinny” fear you, being healthy doesn’t mean being a stick, it means putting good food in and a good mental attitude and know that no matter what you’re beautiful and amazing, you’re unique! There’s 7 billion people on this earth, so there’s 7 billion different ways in being beautiful :]
You really need to celebrate every little goal you've hit, no matter how small it is.
Being healthy is a choice that will change your whole life and when you start feeling better inside/out and notice changes in your skin, smile, body, mental attitude and spiritual growth, that in itself is a MAJOR accomplish,so celebrate yourself! Even though you might not be getting many people’s compliments or the “OMG! YOU LOOK AMAZING”, the most important person to be your best friend and supporter is yourself. Value yourself! Say to yourself “Look at you! You’ve came a long way since last week, last month, or even last year! You made a choice that changed your life forever and your future self will definitely thank you for it!”—that itself, its the greatest feeling in the world that you can give yourself! LOVE YOURSELF AND ALL THE LITTLE ACCOMPLISHMENTS :]
came home had some amazing kashi cereal with a little almond milk and soon making a smoothie :] yum!!! I’m thinking avacodo, mango,peach and maybe a little other fruit or veggie. FEELING SO HEALTHY AND GOOD!
finally got to my goal weight, in a healthy matter where I’m still happy with what I’m eating and have occasional cheat days or moments :]
My best friend came over this morning who I haven’t seen in a month or so and made her an awesome breakfast
feeling like these healthy choices I’ve been making this past month will stay with me permanently
still need to make a few improvements on my “self love” issue
going camping this weekend with my boyfriend and his sister/her girlfriend—can someone say EXCITED?!?!?!!? :]
oh, and definitely pulling away from the negativity that I seem to be surrounded by with some people I’m around, so they’re gonig to start seeing me walk away from them until they decide that their negativity isn’t doing any good for themselves or the people around them.
hey, its a beautiful day today!! :]
****side note—-been repeating the song “We Come Running” by Youngblood Hawke
I should be telling myself every morning in the mirror, “You’re beautiful, worth it, and amazing” and look at all my good qualities, instead lately I’ve been noticing the way I’m talking to myself in my head and its hurtful. I look at myself and think “Ugh, look at you! you’re not thin, your skin is pimply, your hair is a mess..just gross!”—-This is wrong..terribly wrong! I gotta change it. I’m gonna change it.
We’re all beautiful and unique! Looking up “self love” on tumblr showed me theres thousands of people who are struggling but slowly succeeding with this and I want to get better with it as well. Definitely another goal of mine.
This morning me and my sister made smoothies! I made a smoothie with an apple, orange, lime, half a banana, nonfat yogurt, and 6 ice cubes..may i say it was delicous!!!! My sis made one with peanut butter, 1 1/2 bananas, chocolate protein powder, nonfat yogurt and some ice and she loved it. Smoothies are so creative and awesome… Smoothies are amazing!!!!! :] Thats all I gotta say.
So I recently blogged a few hours ago about how I’ve been eating healthy these past 2 weeks and when i was looking through a magazine to get a bikini for the summer, i felt like shit seeing all the girls perfect bodies. After I posted that, I was watching The Ellen Show and Ellen was talking with this lady about how amazing she looks on the front cover of a magazine.The special guest (i forgot who she was unfortunately) said that when she was trying to lose weight, she had an unhealthy mental attitude about it. She said she use to think “I wanna be skinny” and she felt like crap but then she changed her mental attitude to thoughts of “I wanna be healthy” and thats how she did it. I’m so glad I got to see that episode because it really spoke to me. I’m going to change my mental attitude and get healthy!!!
So I’ve been eating very well for about 2 weeks. However, I’m noticing I’m feeling like crap looking in magazines to find a bikini this summer and the girls bodies are so fit and beautiful then I start feeling like shit. I’ve lost 4-5 lbs and now I’m currently 138 lbs and would LOVE to get a few ideas on how to progress more. Help please!
So friday I went to NJ to see Muse and the opening act was Dead Sara, which I ran into and got their autographs and a picture taken with them..AMAZING!!!..after that we went to NY for the night and went sight seeing..I also tried thai food which was tasty! Yesterday I spent the day with Joe<3 after work andI took him to try thai food, which he liked it. Then we went out for ice cream and went to Walmart. All in all had an amazing weekend :] enjoyed every moment of it
