Progress

It has been almost a month since I have posted on here, wow!! However, that does not mean that I have given up on my diet and healthy lifestyle, quite the contrary, I am more focused than ever!!

During the last month I have gone to the nutritionist, a spectacular one by the way, and I have been following a meal plan! It is a little tough because it is so little food, and I have had my slipups, but after two months of being stuck at 60 kilos, I have finally gotten down to 59,5 kilos, only seven and a half more to go! Hooray! It is so great to see the 50`s on my scale finally! Yippee!

I believe what happened was that since I started gym (It has been a month), my fat began turning to muscle amd weighing the same, but finally my weight is going down again:) I am so excited!

Look at the progress pic, wow! It is amazing to see how far I have come and also.to focus on what needs work. I still have a long ways to go, but now I am really focused on being healthy, losing weight, and toning up:)

I have bought clothes that fit, I sold my old clothes that were not even possible for me to wear and bought new ones with the money:) I have been having fun playing dress up with my  new digs hehe I have also been focusing on going lighter with makeup and trying to look my real age, like so:

Yesterday I got a haircut and once I get zome products I am going to.try and start using wavy hair again. Here I  am after getting it cut yesterday:

Hair cut!

Also during this process of killing myself at the gym, I have gotten a new best friend:

Ok, JUST KIDDING on the last one haha, I couldnt resist, but in all truth the scale is my forever ally. Numbers count.

I have been going to the gym every morning from 7 to 8 20, at the most 8 30.  It has been pretty awesome, tough, but I feel great afterwards! I am so excited for this month to see if I can get down to 58 for my bday, that would be an amazing present!!!

Well, I need to get going but I will be back in touch sooner! Have a happy week!!

Happy Sunday from the little beggar!

Motivation Monday!

Hey there! It has been a while! Juat stopping by to say a quick hello before classes and ralk about goals!

I still havent gotten below 60, I reached a plateau. So, to help things along and overall be healthier, I joined the gym! Today was the first day and I did pilates! It was fun, a little too easy in my opinion, but still fun!

Playing.dress up:)

I have decided to quit lactose again, at least until I get down to 58 kilos. No more cheese, milk or other yummy foods:( but I CAN and will do this!

This weekend was fun, full and rushed but fun. We went to my father in laws lakehouse and spent the night Saturday.

Speeding Things Up

Well, I have been stuck at 61,0 kilos for the past three days. Ugh.

To try and get my weight down to 59 ASAP, here are my goals:

1) Start eating less. I believ ethat even though I am eating Dukan permitted foods, I am eating waaaay too much. So I will cut my portions down a bit.

2) For a week, starting today,  I will eat jello and ham for dinner. I will keep it light.

3) Go walking 5 times a week. I am currently walking twice a week durng the week and once on weekends. Now I want to walk four times during the week and once on weekends.

4) FOCUS. The wedding on April 30th is my next goal. I will get down to 58 by then. I have 15 days. Lets do this!

Failure and Keeping Your Head Up

Well, the title kind of explains this whole post. I went off my diet last night. I went to a birthday party and there was nothing really to eat except for fried foods because it was a bar. I ended up eating linguiça, frango a assarinho, a few inion rings and finally some meat. Since I had already screwed up my diet and I was desanimada, I went ahead and got something sweet to eat.

At the time, I wanted it.. and felt bad, but what’s done is done. I need to be stronger and keep my house stocked with good dukan things to eat all the time so I won’t succumb to tempation.

Today I don’t feel so bad about it, because I went to the supermarket and am doing the Atack Phase again, probably for another 5 days, or maybe just to the Cruise phase without tolerated food. I can’t decide which, but I have made the decision to carry on correctly. I will keep up all the work I’ve done and lose the whole process. I WILL get down to 52 kilos because I can and that is my goal and I will stay focused.

Yesterday was a holiday here in Brazil, so this is a long holiday weekend and I am really enjoying it, I haven’t done anything special except for going to the mall with some friends on Thursday night and to a friend’s birthday party Friday night. I have spent the day cleaning and organizing and I finally feel on top of things!

To relax I have been binge watching Drop Dead Diva while drinking coffee and coloring in my anti stress coloring book:) I saw a couple of reviews online and found out that they finally have them here in Brazil! When I went to the mall on Thursday I picked one up, it’s super fun!

After a couple of hours, here is the first page finished!

Now I am working on this one:

Saturday Afternoon PLans:) Binge watching series, iced coffee, and advanced coloring:D

And those are my extensive plans for the long holiday weekend hahahha… sitting at home and relaxing and not doing much:) I do have some paperwork I need to do, but it’s not all that difficult and I have the rest of the day to do it too:D

I hope all of you have a great Easter weekend!

Sucess and Skirts;)

good morning, well another day has come and i feel like i am just waiting… and waiting! i am really anxious for some paperwork to arrive so that i can send it off as quickly as possible. i am also anxious to lose weight quickly because i am tired of the way i look! i mean, i know it has improved, but it could be better, you know?

yesterday i stuck with my goal and only ate chicken, actually i did even better and had two chicken breasts in the morning and some for lunch with an egg. in the afternoon i didn’t have time to eat, so then i decided that i wouldnt eat at night. it was hard, but it paid off. today is a protein and vegetable day, so hopefully i will be able to eat a lot of salad, let’s see. friday is a holiday so everything and everyone is busy because there will be a long holiday weekend- which is A-MA-ZING!

Blurry, but you get to see the skirt:) Don't mind the mess in the background, I have to organize my closet hehe

yesterday i was able to fit into a skirt that i hadn’t been able to wear in a long, long time. i am having to put together different outfits since i only have two pairs of jeans to intercalate. in the mornings i mostly wear pants or long skirts since i work with kids and hve to get up and down, in the afternoon i put on dresses or skirts, also because it is unbearable to wear pants in the afternoon here in londrina.

i hope everyone has a great day and i will talk to you soon!

Chicken and White

Yesterday I ended up drinking a lot of milk and yogurt, so to make up for it today I am eating just chicken today.

I have weighed myself.at exactly 61 kilos, so I am eager for it to drop down soon. This morning I finally went walking for 40 minutes around the neighborhood…I wont be able to tomorrow, but I will on Thursday and Friday is a holiday so I am.going to try to go walking a bit more.

Completely changing subjects… I am beginning to hate how my clothes fit. They are getting baggy on all the wrong places. Ugh. I also have noticed that I am wearing a lot of black and white… but that is only because I have two pairs of pants…and both are black! One is borrowed from my mom.. the other is one I bought on my honeymoon. All the jeans I brought back from the states are huuuuuuge and falling down.

Baggy in strange ways :(

I believe that when I reach 57 kilos… I deserve a shopping trip. Which includes jeans and shirts that fit right. I will still have 5 kilos to lose, but then my clothes will be ridiculously large.

I am.totally crushing on Aline grey tshirts and the minute I find one… I am buying it!

Well, I need to get.going but I will.see you guys.soon!
