I am still here! Still fighting the good fight, although i have n't been sharing it with you! Since the challenge begun i have lost 8 kgs. It used to be 10 but that did n't last! This week is the week before my period. It is coming, any minute now, and i have been so hungry all the time. I eat and after 10 minutes i am famished! What is up with that? I also gave in into the ultimate temptation at this time of the month! Chocolate! You see, i thought this year i would be baking for everybody cakes. So, i took a small bag of chocolate drops and one of chocolate glaze. They both ended up in my stomach. In 5 days i ate them all and wanted more. I did not get any, but still i wanted it.
Other than that my eating was very healthy. Many mini meals(lately maybe too many!) and lots of vegetables! I have been consuming lots of water and teas, and coffees too(i refuse to quit!). My work outs have been pretty decent. Except for the week i have been sick, i go to the kick box practice 3 times a week and i have the bruises to prove it. That is a lot of fun. I still think i am dieing during the warm ups(or wishing it, so they would end), but when the kick box actually starts i am on fire. I even enjoy the bruises. They remind me of what i accomplished.
I decided that 4 times a week is a difficult target for now. If i go 3 times one week and 4 the other that would be 14 practices a month. Half of the month working out is still amazing!
Now the holidays are upon us. There has n't been a year that i have n't gained weight till now. Lets see if i make it this year. I think the key is to have some ground rules.
1. No drinking. That's a tough one, but lets face it, these are empty calories.
2. No more than a candy per day.
3. If there is pie on the table, no more carbs besides salad.
4. Working out whenever there is practice.
5. Lots of water, as little salt as possible.
I am wishing happy and healthy holidays however you choose to spend it full of love, light and magick.
