So - I figured that I should make a goal of WHEN I want to lose the weight by.. Because I figured if I don’t have a time goal, then I’ll just keep putting it off..
My goal is my 21st birthday! Which is on the 27th September. I have approximately 17 weeks to lose 15kg. I think this is quite a reasonable goal.. in fact, I think if I work hard, I can do it before then!
Don't turn a bad meal into a bad week. So you made a poor food choice. You're human. Don't give up and throw in the towel just because you overate. Jump right back into things at your next meal. No biggie.
I didn’t forget about this - I was busy for most of the weekend so I haven’t on tumblr much! I did record everything though so here it is :) (must admit, had a pretty bad weekend for eating/exercising). Also, I don’t remember what time of the day I actually ate any of this, so i don’t know what I had or breakfast/lunch/dinner so It’s all just gonna be together!
2 cheese/vegemite toasted sandwiches
1 small piece of chocolate cake
1 weight watchers spag bol
Excercise: Does about 3 hours of being in the kitchen baking count?
1 piece of chocolate cake
2 pieces of pizza
1 piece of multigrain toast
1/2 cup pumpkin minestrone soup
1 cup of milk tea
Cigarettes: I don’t know actually. I forgot to count >.>
Excercise: About 30 min walking
So.. I shouldn’t bake.. because it makes me eat what I baked.. BUT it kept me occupied for about 3 hours.. and tomorrow.. I weigh myself, see if my bad eating has affected my weight loss.
But later I will remember to post my food for the day!
I want this blog to be about more than just a food diary. I have never wanted to be ‘skinny’. I simply want to be healthy. And that is what I am trying to achieve here.
For my whole life, I have struggled with negative self esteem due to my weight, and due to people telling me I will never be good enough BECAUSE of my weight.
I want this blog to help other people out there like me, who are struggling every day to deal with issues like this. I want everyone out there to know that they ARE beautiful, no matter what size they are. Because it’s true. You are beautiful.
Toasted sandwich w/ tuna, cheese, tomato and lettuce.
Snacks during the day:
200g(ish) raw celery
2 cups vanilla ice cream w/ chocolate sauce and milo
Cup of tea w/ low fat milk
10 cheese & bacon shapes
Weight watcher’s beef lasagna
15 minutes on elliptical
20 minutes walking/jogging on treadmill
So, I have gotten back into old habits of snacking when I’m bored. But that can, and will be fixed! As far as actual meals go, I generally eat pretty healthily.
It’s just the snacks I need to watch out for! Icecream and shapes?! Seriously.. I don’t know what I was thinking. I mean, sure, they aren’t that bad if you only eat a little bit here and there, but for someone trying to lose weight - I need to stay away from them!
But I’m not going to beat myself up for it, because that will just put me in a bad mood. I did do some exercise today, about 35 minutes all up. I started off small, and as the days go on, I will do more!
