Starting over

By HappySkinnyGirl

In the past few months I have been gaining weight and my set point weight seems to hover around 75kg (165.3 pounds). The good news is that I have found an amazingly fun and addictive free IPhone app called Striiv. It’s a pedometer with a built-in game and I’ve been using it daily trying to get in 10000 steps a day. I receive energy points and coins by walking that I can use to build stuff on the island to bring back the lost animals. There are steps challenges and quests to encourage you to walk more.

My goal for this week is to skip food high in calories and opt more for clean food. Also, right before bedtime I get these huge cravings that I can’t ignore. So I end up eating a lot of food like, instant noodle soup, cookies, rice and then some more. I tried oatmeal yesterday before I went to bed and I think it works! It wasn’t super tasty so I didn’t overeat and it stopped my cravings too. Plus I lost some weights this morning.

Weigh in

Up 0,7kg (+1.5lbs) this week, but what’s going to matter more is the monthly loss. I’ll keep pressing on!

Goals:
Next Week: Healthy breakfast and mid meals
This Month: Limit sweets, pasta and other junk food to once a week.
30 min. yoga before breakfast + 30 min. workout during the day.
Long Term: Lose about 24kg/53lbs

Weigh in

By HappySkinnyGirl

Weigh in: -1kg (-2lbs)
New weight: 73,9kg (163lbs)

I’ve moved this week weigh-in to Friday instead of Monday because it feels more motivating to weigh myself before the weekend. I’m planning to have a cheat day on the weekend. This will allow my weight to stabilize before the next weigh in. This week started off well. I lost 1kg (2 pounds)! I skipped noodles for breakfast and ate healthier in the mornings. I did 30 minutes of morning yoga 3 times and then a 10 minutes workout with Tony Horton. Next week will be the same, major focus on eating healthy breakfast and trying to add in more morning yogas.

Goals:
Next Week: Healthy breakfast, 30 minutes morning yoga
This Month: Limit sweets, pasta and other junk food to once a week. 30 minutes workout during the day.
Long Term: Lose about 24kg/53lbs

Making lifestyle changes that last

It’s been a while since I blogged, and my weight has gone up! I thought, with help of blogging, it would take a couple of years to lose weight, but I’m still struggle. Come to think of it I hadn’t really made any lifestyle change or it wouldn’t be any struggle, right? I’ve no motivations whatsoever. What can I do? I figured I would start with eating healthy breakfasts for 30 days or until it becomes a good habit and then move on to the next meal. I really don’t like to exercise, perhaps adding some easy yoga moves in the morning (before breakfast) will strengthen my mind and metabolism.
