Time to lose some weight again

I am back on the smoothie drinking routine again, everyone. Every day! I haven’t had a healthy and nutritious smoothie in a long time. Just blending some kale, spinach, strawberries, bananas, almond milk and some honey. It’s yummy! It looks disgusting, but it’s yummy.

I am also trying so hard to lay off the carbs. No rice, pasta, potatoes, sugar and bread, at least for a couple of weeks. I need to lose some kilograms! I’ve been growing a lot, sideways, and it’s not good. The double neck that I developed has to go too! And I can barely fit in my jeans and shirts.

But it’s so hard! A struggle!

So, I’m trying to go down the healthy road again. A couple years ago, I changed my diet and laid off the carbs for several weeks, and I roughly lost 10KG! So, I’m going to try it again and eat more fish, vegetables and more fruits and stuff. I already laid off the carbs for two days now.

But, as I’m writing this right now at almost 2am, I’m so freaking hungry right now! I am having a huge craving for fries!

But I’ve done it before, so I’m trying to focus on that. I gotta stay strong, people! Struggle or not, I can do it.

I also laid off drinking Diet Coke several weeks now. I mean, I still drink it, but occasionally. But not two bottles a day anymore, like I used to. I drink loads and loads of water now and I feel the change and difference in my body.

Please send me some strength, that I can do this. No matter how much I’m craving a big fat burger with fries right now. Le sigh, right? Le sigh!

To be honest I don’t care about the amount of weight I lost. It’s more the amount of inches I lose. No more struggle to put on pants or shirts. Because all my shirts are all a size medium. And they’re starting to feel like size small to me. Ugh! Anyway, let’s see where this goes.


Eating like a bunny

I don’t want to make my blog all about me wanting to lose weight and about the stuff I eat. But, oh well! I started off my day with a glass of this juice, like a liquid breakfast! It’s just the juice and it was fulfilling. A blend of strawberries and oranges! Fruity, right? And plenty of vitamins too!

For dinner I had, again, only vegetables! I would have added fish or a bit of meat, but all I have at the moment is just vegetables! And I didn’t really felt like going out to get something. Frozen vegetables from a pack, already seasoned and ready to heat up in a pan! Carrots, peas, corn, mushrooms, silver onions… with a little bit of sauce! That was my dinner for today! It may sound boring to you, but it was actually pretty delicious! For the rest of the evening I will nibble on those snack carrots that I have! Eating like a bunny, aren’t I? LOL.

I weighed myself last Friday. I don’t want to weigh myself every day, otherwise I would go insane. So to see if I made any progress, I will continue doing what I do with the healthy eating and stuff, and weigh myself again next week, Friday! So there’s two weeks apart. What do you think?

In the mean time I will consider if I will use my crosstrainer for a little bit of exercise, but I won’t promise you anything. Also, I was wondering when my ‘cheat day’ will be! That’s the one day where I pig out and eat like… well, a pig! What did you have for dinner today? Make me jealous!


Getting rid of the holiday weight

The past couple of days I have been pretty annoyed that I gained a bit of weight. I’m sure a lot of people have that issue, right after the holidays. Feeling bloated, pants that are suddenly too tight, having to deal with a chicken or a rooster neck that wasn’t there before, being able to see your own cheeks when you smile… it’s frustrating! Around this time last year I lost roughly 10KG in about two to three weeks! And I noticed it too! I looked slimmer in the waist and face. And I didn’t do much exercise at all. Occasionally I took long walks outside.

What I did was laying off the freakin’ carbs. That means no bread, no pasta, no rice and no potatoes. Those are the main no no’s, at least for me. I was eating lots of vegetables, fish like salmon, and just meat but with moderation. So mostly just vegetables. I also ate bits of food every two hours, like one or two whole wheat crackers, fruit or yoghurt. I wanna go on that road again by eating healthy!

Starting today!

For dinner I simply had steamed cailuflower, grilled salmon and that’s it. Added a little bit of that powdered cheese and a little bit of garlic sauce. And it was tasty! When I lost weight last year that was what I ate a lot! For like several weeks. And for me the results were really showing! And I noticed it on the scale too! Now, this may not be the best or healthiest way to lose weight, but oh well! I am that stubborn!

Hopefully I can keep it up, because I am an emotional eater and I am eager to fall off the wagon! But let’s keep the faith! I will and must get rid of the holiday weight!
