Hey everybody! Happy Wednesday!
I’m updating later than usual, I had some things to do this afternoon.
Let me see…
Yesterday was a rather weird day for my appetite. My cravings were all over the place. I tried to resist as much as I could or else I would’ve seriously spent the day eating.
I made this for my snack:
2 small apples + cinnamon + low fat coconut yogurt. One word: Yum.
Dinner was veggie soup and a lemon yogurt (I was craving something sweet so that did the trick).
Today I woke up earlier than usual (6:10am), spent some time in bed thinking about breakfast and what I’d make.
This was perfect. Weetabix biscuit + plain yogurt + a banana.
I went to the gym but I honestly wasn’t feeling it today. I did the usual and though I didn’t work as hard as I usually do, I still managed to break a sweat. When I was coming home I ran into a girl that used to be on my class when I was in… 5th grade. We live really close to each other but are rarely together. We started talking and talking and talking…. no kidding, we spent 1 hour just talking in the middle of the street ahah It was almost 2pm and we agreed that it was time to go home and have lunch. I gave her my card and we’ll probably have some coffee next week or something like that.
Came home and prepared lunch.
It’s another mix, really. There’s potato, fish, egg, veggies. I added some olive oil for (more) flavor. 🙂
Then my brother and I went to take care of some stuff for his wedding.
I took a photo to show you my outfit 😛
Loose pants. I bought these a month ago, less even. They’re the ones I posted a photo of when I first started the blog. They’re already loose. This has been happening with all my clothes. Which is normal but incredibly frustrating (and not very good for the wallet). To make matters worse… I’m between numbers! One size is too big and the lower size is a little snug.
Anyway, I tried two pairs of pants but ended up not buying any. Also tried a cute shirt on. I really liked how it looked… and then I saw the price. 26 euros for a shirt? It wasn’t even of great quality! I think not. I left it there.
Then we came home, chatted a bit and had a snack. My bro had two slices of bread with PB and blueberry jam. I wasn’t that hungry but I knew I had to eat. This seemed like a good idea.
I have no idea what I’m having for dinner but my appetite is a little, uh.. nonexistent today. We’ll see.
One thing I wanted to talk about… I’ve been thinking about this since the beginning of the week. I told you about my little scale freakout, right? Well, after reading some stuff and really thinking about it.. I’ve made a decision.
I will be weighing myself only once a month from now on. Now, I could say I won’t step on a scale for the remainder of 2009, but I honestly can’t make that commitment just yet. I admire those who can. But I want to do this. I don’t want it to control my mood anymore. I don’t want it to control ME anymore.
I have to face facts. I’m at a healthy weight. Is it my ideal weight? Not just yet. But I am getting there. I’ve been building new and healthier habits. I exercise pretty frequently and I eat better than most people I know. I know my body and how much food it needs.
It took me a long time to be in this position.. and I just want to enjoy it. I want to look in the mirror and like what I see. I don’t want to look at it and think “I gained two pounds… let me see what’s different… OMG MY THIGHS”… No. This is no way to live. A body doesn’t change like that, even if weight does.
So yes. This is my decision. I know that it’s what’s best for me.
I just wanna be free and enjoy my new body and my healthy living.
What do you think? Would you be able to ditch the scale?
Here’s todays’ picture.
This is “a piece” of Lisbon, my home city. 🙂
