Weekly Wrap Up – Week 3

Sundays I’ll tell something about my week. Every Sunday I’ll set up some goals for me to do for the upcoming week and next Sunday I’ll tell how well I reached them.

MY LAST WEEKS GOALS

  • Eat regularly (at work this is a real challenge sometimes)
  • Keep drinking water
  • EXERCISE! EXERCISE! EXERCISE!
  • Go to the scale (I’m really afraid to do that)

It’s been a good week for me. Yay! I’ve been exercising. Not everyday, but almost. At my friends summer house I did some yard works and at home I’ve been going to walks. I’ve been drinking water and especially because it’s been warm. At work we been having troubles with air condition and it’s been hot in there. So I’ve been consuming lot of water. 

I think I’ve been eating quite regularly. Now I’ve been thinking do I eat enough. I haven’t been hungry but I really been paying attention to how much others eat. And I think I don’t eat as much and when you trying to lose weight you have to eat enough.

And I finally I went to the scale. And I’m so terrified about that. But I did it. 

So I’ve had a good week and I’m proud of myself. 

Now I have to go to work so I don’t have time to tell anything else.

GOALS FOR NEXT WEEK

  • Keep exercising
  • Keep eating regularly 
  • Keep going to scale

Weekly Wrap Up – Week 2

Sundays I’ll tell something about my week. Every Sunday I’ll set up some goals for me to do for the upcoming week and next Sunday I’ll tell how well I reached them.

MY LAST WEEKS GOALS

  • Drink water 2,5 l per day
  • Go to walk everyday at least for 30 minutes, longer if day off from work.
  • Eat breakfast everyday
  • Really lose some weight

I’ve been sick since last Thursday night and I haven’t been eating well since then but I really have been drinking water and some other liquids too. Today I’m feeling better and have been eating proper food: new potatoes, broccoli and some meat. I didn’t eat breakfast everyday. But I ate breakfast at the beginning of the week and I felt really good. And then I got sick 😦 

 Beginning  of the week I also drink quite good. I have one half liter bottle at home and one at work and I can fill them up. It’s easier to me to remember to drink, if I really have the bottle right beside me. So yes, I’ve been drinking water 2,5 l per day.

My next goal to achieve was to go do some exercise, to walk at least 30 minutes per day. I really didn’t reach this goal, not by far. Monday and Tuesday I was so tired that I wasn’t up to it. It’s just a stupid excuse and the one thing I want to change in my life. 

I really don’t know if I’ve been loosing weight, because I forgot to go to the scale at work beginning of the week and now I’ve been on a sick leave, so I haven’t had a change to use the scale. I don’t own a scale. But I think I haven’t lost any kilos or pounds

Well. this doesn’t look good. I achieved 1 out of 4 goals. That isn’t good at all. I’m so disappointed in me. 😦 I was sick, so that’s a one reason to fail, but still. I just have to think positively and there’s only one way to go now!

 

GOALS FOR THE NEXT WEEK

  • Eat regularly (at work this is a real challenge sometimes)
  • Keep drinking water
  • EXERCISE! EXERCISE! EXERCISE! 
  • Go to the scale (I’m really afraid to do that) 

Weekly Wrap Up – Week 1

Sundays I’ll tell something about my week. Every Sunday I’ll set up some goals for me to do for the upcoming week and next Sunday I’ll tell how well I reached them.

This first week didn’t go as well as I’d hope. I didn’t have time to exercise or I say so at least. Maybe I should have done something, but I just wasn’t up to it and I haven’t found my sneakers anywhere. Luckily I found cheap sneakers and bought them. Now I really don’t have any excuses to have some exercise. And I know that running or in my case walking outdoor isn’t the only way to have some exercise. I also could go to gym or swimming or maybe both. 

At least (about 2 weeks ago) all the snow has melted away. Yay! I really should take my bicycle out of the storage (read: from my dads place) and put some grease to the chains, check air in the tires and make sure that brakes works as them should (read: my dad’s going to do that all). I really like cycling so I hope to see my dad soon and get my bicycle. 

In this week I went to 2 birthday parties and at work we had a potluck because of the 1st of the May, Vappu, as we called it here in Finland. I tried to eat within reason, but I did eat cakes, crisps, candy, fruits, peanuts, doughnut, pasta salads, green salads and so on.

And finally yesterday me and my friends were in fancy restaurant. Food was great, so delicious and I was eager to eat the main dish I forgot to take a picture of it. Desert was heavenly and also I remembered take a photo to you to see . Also I enjoyed wines and drinks during the evening. We had really fun time and it was great to see on friend I haven’t seen in 18 months.

GOALS FOR TO NEXT WEEK

  • Drink water 2,5 l per day
  • Go to walk everyday at least for 30 minutes, longer if day off from work.
  • Eat breakfast everyday
  • Really lose some weight

New beginning

Still looking for a life. I started this blog last November, but then I just got too busy or something else to write. But now I have decided try this blog again. Yay! It’s first of  May, so it’s great to start in the beginning of the month.

My life haven’t changed much. I’m still staying with my mom. I know, so embarrassing, but I have good reasons for that. I just have to save money so I can rent my own place. I have planned that just about two months and I’m on my own.

This is me

I’m still over weight. And that’s a thing I don’t like at all. I hope through this blog I have some change about my weight. I hope that when I’m writing my thoughts out here and tell you my challenge losing lot of weight, I will do it. I think it’s too hart to tell my friends and family (thought my sister is reading this) about my battle. If I’ll tell my friends about my battle I feel I don’t have change to fail. I really know that’s not true, because I have the greatest friends, but just don’t want to tell anyone who is in my life about this. And also, it would be awesome, when I’m losing weight and they just pay attention to it.  

One thing is good. I have a job. I have a great job. A job I just love. I’ve been working in ICU since end of January. And I just love it. Now I’m in my dream job! I just keep smiling everyday when I go to work and whenever I just think about my work place.

So I try to find my life again and I hope I can found it. I have plan to write weekly about my exercise, my meals and my progress losing weight. I also have a plan to tell about my apartment hunting and my life in general including my fun findings over internet or my shopping. Let’s find out how this second start is going to go.

I’m So Excited

This new life is great. I love it.

 

My plan for today was wake up early, eat good breakfast and do some exercise.

 

But I didn’t woke up until 10.30 am. Oh well, it’s was still morning though. Wasn’t it? I ate sturdy breakfast including two sandwiches and oatmeal, drank raspberry juice. Yes, that went like I’d planned. Then I left to do some sports. Beginning of the week I decided I want to go to swimming. So I did today. I swam 1,5 km (0,9 miles). Also I walked 3 km (1,9 miles). Wohoo. I felt so good afterwards. It always feels good after you’ve done some exercise. =)

 

After I got home I ate spaghetti with minced meat sauce. I think it was quite healthy though spaghetti wasn’t whole wheat. Sauce was healthy ‘cos besides minced meat there was carrots, onions and parsnips. Before bedtime I ate two sandwiches again.

 

I know that I should eat regularly while losing weight. In fact everybody should eat regularly to gain or to remain their ideal weight. I also know you should eat about 4 to 5 times a day. You should have a good breakfast, ‘cos it’s most important meal in day. I’ve read at breakfast should contain good amount of protein ‘cos it adds basal metabolism. It’s important increase your basal metabolism while you’re losing weight. Now I’m just writing about theory. I could do one or two posts just about theory regarding healthy eating and living. You shouldn’t forgot eat lunch, some healthy snack, dinner and healthy evening snack. I promise I would do something about my eating habits. This was just day 1.

 

And I’m so excited about this blog. I thought about this blog while swimming. I noticed swimming is also good for your mind. ‘cos you have time to think everything while you just swim. I came up with loads of ideas to put in here. So I think I keep writing. This is fun. Though, I’m little bummed out ‘cos I can’t use this wordpress as good as I’d wanted to. But I’m learning. So bear with me.

 

I’m off to bed now. Trying to write less confusing text tomorrow.

 

With Love SonyaBlue
