Bring it on!

Ok, I have to say I feel great when I put clothes on, go shopping or just look in the mirror these days. At day 1 I never expected to be where I am now. It has been and still is a lot of hard work and disipline which was harder in the beginning, but I still have to grab myself by the neck sometimes and stop whatever I'm about to do...But in the end it's worth it if you get results, and now is the time where I can really see they are coming. I feel awesome and more confident and for that I am so grateful.

My weight hasn't gone down at bit and that truly surprises me when I look at my body, because it is totally changed. It makes all the horrible ab exercises, excrushiatingly hard shoulderpresses, davincis and lunges worth it. I will love to do them anytime now just because I know they work. And as goes for eggwhites....well I used to hate them, still don't find them tasty, but I will eat them everyday if this is what they do....Bring it on, I'm ready!!!!!

Ok, so my stomach looks a lot better....

Ok, my body has changed so all my hard work is paying off after all. My stomach is getting defined and my love handles are completly gone. My legs are definitly tighter and my arms look great, at least to me...
So two sizes down in pants and a slim waist, it can't get better than that, or can it Patrick...

Love-hate relationship!!!

Ok it's official. I hate the said I would Patrick, but at the time we did 30 sec reps, now we have 90 sec. It's incerdible that 1,5 minutes can be that hard, but I said it: IT IS SOOOO HARD!!!!

Back in the game!

I'm back in the game. Even though I only flew for two hours and didn't cross any timelines on my way, my body feels totally jetlagged. But I pushed myself and said enough days wandering off the tracks, and I completed my workout. it feels fantastic to be back in the project 100%, and being back on the diet feels invigorating in a way. It's not difficult although I feel that I'm eating like a horse. That was one of the difficulties on holiday, to eat regulary and enough. I didn't eat unhealty or stuffed my face with sweets, I only had trouble finding food at the right times.

So on I go on my lonesome since both my co Pcp ers have taken a break. I hope it's not me guys, I know I'm a smelly fish at times, but hey it can't be that bad....

I look forward to the last three weeks on the journey to my better life, and I will give it everything I got. They say nothing comes for free, so here comes all my blood, sweat and tears!

Oh la la...

Ok, I'm on holiday in Mexico. And I'm NOT doing great with the project, it's not possible to be 100% true to the PCP while in Acapulco. Not so much because of willpower, which I have lost a little bit this week as well, I have to be honest, but just because it's bloody hard to get the right food to the right times....impossible and with people hardly understanding what you say, I ca tell you all that getting an eggwhite after my workout wasn't easy....I have been doing my full workout everyday, and for that I'm very proud, but for the diet that has been neglected a lot....Sorry!!!! I still am commited to completling the PCP, but I just have to be strong from next week and take my losses with a brave smile...It just couldn't be done, but I haven't strayed too far off course though...I have stayed on course with the breakfast, snacks have been whatever we'd find, lunch pretty good, but dinner I have to admit wasn't the smoothie, and I did have some carbs....I know I shouldn't have, but I stayed off the french until next week...hasta luego!!!!

Yet another setback!!!

The hits just keeps on way! Just when I have gotten rid of the flu, then I go and cut my hand, so now I can't use my left hand for anything....typical. But at least there are other things I can do, but it's not optimal for my workout....legs and abs are just some parts of the body, but what about the rest?

Hopefully I'll be back to normal in a few days....working out on a beach in Mexico...ahhhh...doesn't sound so bad does it?

Well, next blog I'll keep you updated on how that goes.....hasta la vista, baby!!!

A treat or a threat?

I was just told that we could have another indulgence in the diet. This time from 5-700 calories. I was very surprised by my reaction to this, because last time I planned for a week what I was going to treat on. this time my reaction was that I didn't want to do it. I just thought about how many hours I would have to work out to get it off again. I did have a cookie that I have been eyeing for a while and a handful of small licorice pieces, but what it did was make me throw up. It was a small amount of the calories that I could have had, but it ended up making me loose my lunch, so it was a complete disaapointment. So I have definitly changed a lot, since I started on this journey. Before I ate these things every single day, but now it makes me sick to think about putting them in my mouth. I would much rather have a handful of raisins or grapes...Funny how that happened!!!!

Yesterday I went to the Houston Rodeo. I had my smoothie dinner before I left, but five hours at the rodeo left me quite hungry. Everyone around me was eating all these yummy foods, but nothing that was part of my diet. I searched desperatly after something I could eat, something green, but nothing was found. It left me so frustrated at the choices of food at these events. They had nachos, hot dogs, pretzels, nuts, pizza and that sort of thing, but nothing remotely healthy. No wonder people get overweight in this society.....When i got home I had a salad, but woke up this morning with the worst headache...

The body is amazing...

No not my body, but THE body. I mean it adapts to anything really. I started out at one point and have now reached another, and now I couldn't even consider to move back. With all the changes, and ups and downs I've been through, I'm still amazed at where I am today. My body is changing in so many ways. It's definitly slimming and tightning, but also smoother skin, better digestion, better habits and less cravings, more willpower and an understanding of making choices...the right ones!!!!

I'm not saying that I will NEVER have a chocolate bar ever again, or NEVER want a bowl of cheetos, but I will think more about it, plan an occasional indulgence rather than have it whenever and in unlimited portions. I will think about consequences and what it actually does to my body, maybe even make decisions to eat stuff that does something for my body instead....

I feel I'm growing and becoming stronger day by day....

So I still stand b my statement, THE BODY IS AMAZING, maybe even mine.....?!?!
