I didn’t lose any weight this week. What happened was I was trying to lower my calories intake but the cravings hit me hard. I did go over but not much. I went back to the routine but I didn’t feel I’ve enough energy so I set my calories a little bit higher than the week before. I’m not planning any exercise yet because I want to deal with one thing at a time. All effort is not loss because I’m learning to stick to good habits, and not go overboard when the cravings hit.
New weight: 67.8kg/149.5lbs
Last week was my birthday so I ate food that was high in sugar, and because of it my weight doesn’t want to come off as easily as the week before. I eat mostly prepackaged meals just to keep it simple with calories counting. I cook once in a while when I get tired of eating prepackaged meals. For breakfast I usually have Weight Watchers frozen meal because they have lower calories than other brands here in Sweden. Then for the rest of the day I can have anything I want within my calories budget. I use ShapeUp, an app that tracks calories. It’s so simple to scan in the barcode and then I’m done. I’m looking forward this week to lose some more
-0,9kg/2lbs lost. Yes!
I’m making commitment to get in shape before the year ends. I don’t want the next year to be the same as the last 3-4 years. I’ve had it! My mistake was I let the emotions run ahead of me. There are lots of great tips in “Die fat or get tough” book, how fat and fit people think. I understand it now, getting fit starts first in the head. I’m fat because I think fat. I already lost the battle when I see junk food and think yum whereas a fit person would think it as poison.
I better get in the game and start reporting my weekly result again. Mentally, I can handle my late night cravings pretty well now. The painful feelings are the same whether I choose to eat late at night or not. If I don’t give in to my cravings it’s painful. But if I do give into them then I still have this painful feeling of being fat. So I let the craving ride out and accept the pain. I would rather endure short term pain of not eating than long term pain of always being fat.
After having lunch at Huseliiharen we did a mini tour to marskarsudden in Utvalnas today.
Oh, how I love late summer ♥
It’s fabulous weather today and M’s father came to visit us from Stockholm. We discovered Gavle’s most cozy place to eat lunch at, Huseliiharen which lies on the coast of Engesberg marina. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing. On a day like this, I long to have our own beach house.
Favorite spot ♥
It feels like I’ve been away in Thailand for a month! It has been fun to meet all the relatives and got a chance to spend time with one of my best childhood friends. We visited her sugarcane plantation, picked longan fruit from her backyard, and visited historic parks. I’m very impressed that she takes care of the plantation all by herself! Unfortunately, we did only spend one day at the beach, so next time we’re planning to go directly to one of the islands.
On a casual fine day, it’s perfect for barbecuing! =)
