Week Two! If you broke your unhealthy habit for one week, congratulations! Why not try two weeks?
I didn’t break it because of the weekend, but here we go round two.
Weekly challenge: Get organised! This week try to plan tomorrow’s meal the night before.
Ooooh. This is a good one. I tend to do this anyways. Alright, tomorrow is Tuesday… it is eat out with Ben at the school cafeteria day! What shall I eat? I think I shall have a sandwich at dinner with a bottle of juice. Lunch is an omlete, nommie nommie! Breakfast will be banana with sugar and toast. :3 Goodluck to me!
Day eight: Name 5 things you like about your body (you can do it) and the one body part you’d like to change the most.
1. My eyes, they are a really pretty blue. Wouldn’t change those ever.
2. My lips. Love the colour of them, never have to wear much more than gloss.
3. Nails. They are long and always clean.
4. My fingers, they are long and slender and oh so feminie.
5. My nose. It’s French with a bump in the middle but it at least reminds me I am part of my family.
One thing I would get rid of however is my belly. It’s huge and just sits there. I look good front on in clothes but to the side I look like a monster. I’m confident but it would make clothes too so much better if it was gone. -looks down at stomach- GO AWAY! :3

I can eat a whole meal at Subway that is less than the Big Mac at McDonald’s. That is a shocker, well… not really. Monday is the day that I treat myself to fast food. I diet isn’t successful if I am just depriving myself of the foods I love. McDonald’s is my weakness and now I think I need to find a new friend other than the Big Mac. I should attempt to make the burger at home, can’t promise it will be any healthier for me though. Oh well, good luck!
Friday night is what brought me down. I went out to the bar with a few friends and went past my calorie count. I slept in, missed meals, ate fast food and more. My weekend diet blown. What I have learned from this? University life has made it so much harder to lose weight. You have to balance your schedule and pick priorities. You have the choose sleep, good grades or a social life. Some say you can only pick two, I can hardly balance one. Reflecting back on my weekend, I have come to terms with failure. Failure just means a new start. There is no need to say foget it, I’m never going to make my goal. You need to keep going. Everyday you eat right and exercise is one day more than you ever had. I’m going to keep my chin up and keep going for another week.
I’ve also been away from tumblr, so here are the questions I missed!
Day five: Is there any specific event you want to lose the weight for?
I love to look good in a bikini for summer. Residence formal is too close to loose weight for but it would be nice not to look like a sausage in a dress. Crossing my fingers for that one!
Day six: Have you ever been overweight or underweight?
I’m overweight currently. I use to be happy with my weight but it was something I did to feel better about myself. And it worked until I went clothing shopping. Again, I’m losing this for me, no one else but me.
Day seven: Do your friends and family know you are trying to lose weight?
Bless my mother’s soul. She tries to lose weight all the time but doesn’t stick with her diet at all. She thinks eating less calories means you’ll lose weight. There no exercise, she just sits in bed. I love her and wish her the best. But mom please, get out of bed and go more than skip rope for five minutes during commercials. <3
Do you work out? How many times a week?
Hell yeah! It makes me feel wonderful! I’m trying to work out for half an hour for two days in a row than take a break. Twice a week go to the gym, see how that works for me. Might buy dumbbells tomorrow at Wallie World.
Speaking of the gym! Today I went with my lovely roommate, Miss Kayla Ramsbottom. We went cycling and on the treadmill. Usually I am intimidated by all the hot guys that are there but I felt good about myself. Exercising seems to really empower me and make me fell good. Likely because afterwords I’m usually under my calories and can have a snack. However, I didn’t. I just sat and watched the rest of the Leaf’s game with Ben. They lost, boo! :( Still the work-out was great. Likely go again with Kayla whenever she asks. Maybe I will start doing some muscle work. Naaa! Lol.
Carloie Goal: 1300
Breakfast: Rice Krispies Cereal (with skim milk and some extra sugar) + water. 
Lunch: Two lunchables (turkey with crackers and cheese and Pizza — not my fault, I have class through a normal lunch period so I couldn’t go home to make real food) + water. 
Dinner: Pepperoni Slice (from Pizza Pizza) + Creamy Garlic dipping sauce + 3/4 Dr Pepper cherry flavour. 
Snacks: Chocolate Dipped doughnut + strawberry cheese strudel from Tim Hortons. 
Exercise: Treadmill running (30 mins) + Stationary bike lvl 9 (30 mins). [-574]
Water Consumption: 5 cups
Again, an unhealthy day but I was under my calories. I also exercised a lot of it off. I really enjoyed the gym. I think I need a shower, lol.
I am taking an introduction to Gender Equality and Social Justice at Nipissing University. Today we watched a video called Miss Representation. It is about the exploitation of young girls and women in the media. It touched me personally. I would admit the media triggered my want for weight loss (I wouldn’t be ignorant and say it didn’t). But this is a message for all women. Be who you are, not what is on the billboard or in the magazine. The models are images placed in our heads of something that we can never achieve. Instead of aiming to be perfect, aim to be happy.
I feel bad.
I followed my guide but around eight o’clock I started to want to really eat. I couldn’t stop myself. It was because of the stupid cheesecake after dinner. I was short 500 calories. I thought, let’s treat myself to cheesecake (since it was sitting in my fridge from the pizza I bought the night before I started my diet). I went to do some homework. I sit there and I am like, oh I want to nom something. I get up and I grab those toaster struddle packages of icing. Not even the struddle the PACKAGE! Then I chewed gum and ate popcorn loaded with butter and topping. I feel so bad because I cheated myself. I didn’t add it to my calorie count… But I feel so bad! Tomorrow I shall kick my ass while do 45 mins of exercise instead of the regular 30! Take that stomach of pure hunger.
Any suggestions for when I get the munchies bad?
Do you count calories? What is your daily calorie goal/allowance?
I don’t normally count calories but I thought I’ve give it a shot. It makes me feel better if I make exactly my daily allowance (which is 1300). I don’t stress if I go over it. I like a guideline so I am not binging like I normally do.
What is your MAIN reason for wanting to lose weight? (Be honest.)
I want to lose weight for myself. I hate looking in the mirror and looking good front on and when I turn to the side I see this lump of fat.
Also doing my BMI yesterday I was 1.5% away from being obese. That word is scary. It is scary because it means health problems. I never thought I was fat, just over-weight. It was lie I was telling myself for years. I want to healthy and average size. Give the baby poach over the abs. Give me thunder thighs over twigs for legs. Give me a long life over a heart attack.
