My own challenge!!

17 Mar

Does it happen to you that you wake up one morning and feel like the day is gorgeours and then go to the gym and just feel you need to give an extra mile, then you just come back to your place, turn on the TV, and there you have the Best Loser TV Show?.. Gosh, that really motivates me to give that extra mile to feel healthier and in better shape. Not sure how long it will last though. :o)

Well, crazy as it sounds and letting myself influence by the best loser TV Show, someone  would say that i am gullible, I decided to start my own challenge.  Yeeeeiii!!!. It’s been almost 6 years since I don’t take food and exercising seriously and with the discipline I used to have.   I feel like Hamlet some times, to be or not to be, that is the question!!..I love food. Sometimes it is just like having an orgasm..well maybe not that much, or maybe yes..haha will depend on the who.. well let’s back to our topic, don’t get distracted!.  Food is delicious and I think we shouldn’t prive of it, we should enjoy it without regret and just take it all, but one thing is to do it from time to time and another, to do it every day.

Some of us, don’t have the metabolism as fast as others, so having lots of food every day will be pretty soon notorious in every part of our body.  So for some, that like to feel good with ourselves and care about being in shape, a good option is to exercise and eat well. You know it has a lots of positive things..bla bla bla.

So here my own challenge, reduce 3 kilos in fat, it seems few, but it is not!. Also, i would like to get more strenght.. so directions from the nutricionist:

1. Stop drinking alcohol during 1 month.. I am not an alcoholic but having wine from time to time or margaritas will not help, i will miss it.   I’ll do my best. I had already 1 glass.. šŸ™‚ nobody is hurt. And I have a girls night in a couple weeks, which we will have pisco!.. girls night without wine, margaritas or pisco.. ??!!
2. No Milshakes  šŸ˜¦ boo (1 month)
3. No advocado, olives..  (1 month)
4. No chips .. had already one little bag. I know I am addicted to the plantain chips!! I am guilty. šŸ™‚

Exercise Exercise Exercise

One month, one month!!.. sooo, this is it for now, starting this new challenge which I hope everybody encourage me to continue..

Well, I will keep updates on my blog about how this is going. For sure I will skip this guidelines during my staying in Peru, but but.. I promise I’ll do more exercising.

Also, I am already taking some very interesting classes, that you will enjoy it to know!. I’ll share it soon. You will enjoy it!

The force to be with me!


Third week and enjoying living by myself again….

12 Mar
Well It’s been already three weeks and I am enjoying the time at the apartment with my self, little Lucy and friends.
Have plans to paint the whole apartment but still haven’t bought the paint.  Deciding if I will do it by myself or hire someone to do it.  Well, let’s see, I know I will have it done and then I will be focusing with the furniture.. it is so hard to decide which color for the walls, it took me more than 2 months and at the end decided for earth colors.  So soon you will see.I will post pics with the new color.
The first weekend by myself i was super tired, my muscles was hurting as if I was moving all Hermes’ furniture, which didn’t happen hehehehe..It is not I am a bad friend, it is just tiring just thinking about it.. Hermes know me. I went to yoga and it seems it was a tough class because i felt that a truck passed over me.    The succeding weekend i was out the whole day doing something I don’t remember and at night went to this Brazilian Party which was pretty fun. However I wished they put on the lateral panels what was going on on the scenario as only the people on the front was able to see the show.

Sunday was pamper day, went to get a depilation and then some massages, love that day, you just feel like a princess. Then have some italian lunch with Karlita and back to home to get some rest.

Week days have been fun, I forgot how much i enjoyed when i go to the office. Pretty much, the latest weeks I’ve been going to the office, it’s being pretty busy but i enjoying every bit of it.  I learned that we need to smile to things even if sometimes it seems a little dark. A smile will only bright everything. Besides people i was working with are just great. In other words, I can say i was letting myself go with the system, and flowing with it. :o)

Something I need help SOS.. is with the cooking. Lately I haven’t feel with the mood of cooking, so I’ve been eating pretty much outside with friends, laughing, drinking.. (not and alcoholic yet, won’t happen this month at least, I’ll later why). It is so nice to not cook and just have the food already done.. it’s sth I can do it everyday!!.. don’t you?.   Maybe I will need to date a chef or someone that will love cooking, will make my life easier and enjoyable.. 
Well yesterday was Sushi night and today, i’ll cook some salmon and veggies.  That is pretty much how it’s been going..i’ll be in touch!
