Hey guys! How are you? Hope you’re having an awesome weekend!
Sorry I didn’t post yesterday but it was a weird and busy day!
This was my dinner thursday night. I didn’t really feel like eating it but I did anyways. Wasn’t in a good mood, at all. I felt bloated and ugh. And then I made the mistake of stepping on the scale. Yeah, big mistake. 61 kgs (134 pounds). I knew I was bloated but that put me in the worst of moods. It’s crazy how that stupid thing controls my mood.
Anyway… but just so you can see how crazy we are to let the scale dictate how we feel.. The next morning after eating breakfast…
… I stepped on the scale again. 58 kgs. 128 pounds. That’s a difference of 6 pounds. Overnight.
Of course I was relieved but at the same time I felt stupid. Because… why would I let it upset me so much? I’ve been eating mostly right, I’ve been going to the gym pretty often, I can feel myself getting stronger… slowly, sure, but I’m getting there. So why does that number matter so much?! I know this has been written about a million of times, but I think it’s good to remember. That number is NOTHING. It doesn’t matter. It does not define you, it doesn’t let you know how strong and healthy and beautiful you are.
ANYWAY (:P), after this I took care of some errands and then came home for a quick lunch. I was in the mood for yogurt, cereal and fruit. That’s what I had.
I also had two small toasts with queijo fresco and a square of dark chocolate. This lunch was all over the place ahah
In the afternoon I went to the gym with Filipa. I must say I MUCH prefer going to the gym in the morning. It’s just a whole different crowd and vibe. I did the usual cardio + weight training + abs and stretch. We got out of there at 5:30pm and we had to have a snack. Luckily they have a “café” at the gym, that has healthy options. We shared a sandwich that had queijo fresco, some lettuce and tomato… but I forgot to take a picture. BAD FOOD BLOGGER.
Came home and was E.X.H.A.U.S.T.E.D. I could barely keep my eyes open. I put on my pjs and went right to bed. Had a little something for dinner (exactly what I was craving, omelet with mushrooms and other veggies).
I watched some tv shows, read and commented some blogs (I’m still catching up!) and I think I went to sleep around 11:30pm.
Today I woke at 7:30am and had some yummy but simple breakfast.
We went shopping, bought some new and exciting things (food). You’ll see.
The organic veggies section. It’s a shame that everything’s so expensive. :/
Also bought a cute new blazer because I really needed one! My clothes are too big!
We spent almost the whole morning shopping so when we got home we only had time to put the groceries away and went to lunch! We went to a restaurant, I had grilled fish and steamed veggies. Not exciting, I like to keep it simple. No photos again (BAD BAD FOOD BLOGGER).
In the afternoon my mom, my brother and I went to Lisbon to get the suit my brother is wearing to his wedding! Yep, he’s getting married in November… in less than a month!
We were supposed to see some shoes and stuff, but we were all tired and just wanted to come home.
This was todays’ snack. Pineapple low-fat yogurt and bread with blueberry preserves (I think it was blueberry… not sure).
Finally… Here’s a sneak peek of tonights’ dinner!
Picture of the day!
Because that’s what the weekend is for!
Hope you’re having a great saturday.
