Sorry, i know i’ve been lacking in motivational pictures and posts these past couple of days. i’ll get right on to that for you:)
Hi! especially considering our country is pretty small. that’s cool:) same time zone is good, so you’ll probably be up when i am:)
you can’t just stop it immediately you need to slowly deminsh your intake so that you’re body gets used to eating less and less. start only having it once a day. then make the amounts smaller and smaller. eat it once a day, if you crave it again, eat something in it’s place so that your body starts to want to crave that instead. :)
sorry i’ve been slacking a bit with my posts. i’ve been held up at school working on things (even thought exams are over i have extra things i need to do raaahh). school is over thursday! whoo. so i’ll be on summer break and will be able to post every day hopefully:)
i went to a BATs (bum abs and thighs) class this morning. woke up at 5.15am! too early, i’m so tired now:P but it was great, if you have gym near you, definitely try one of these classes. it’s hard while you’re doing it but afterwards you’re like yeah! i feel great! :)
Also, i’ve been working on becoming organic for the past few months, it’s quite hard. but i’m allergic to MSG (flavor enhancer in majority of flavored or processed foods) and some artificial sweeteners and sugars. so i figured, for my new years resolution, i’d go full organic…but not like….only eating things organically grown, but just natural foods and things that are healthy for me, not too many jared foods with preservatives in them. i’m going to try my best on this, it’s been a goal of mine for a while and i figured, new year, new lifestyle choice.
message me your new years resolutions, i’d love to know!
you want to be bone thin, frail and almost breakable? just so light that you feel like there’s no way you could ever be big ever again? i understand. i used to want this, the average weight to me used to be disgusting too. i never used to listen to anything, i had this mindset i didn’t care what people considered beautiful or not. i wanted to be thinner than thin because to me, that was beautiful.. it was so bad that when my friends used to look at overly skinny girls and be like ew that’s so gross i’d look at them and wish that i was that.
i need to tell you that you need to change the way your perceive beauty and how you see your body. because that road that you’re walking is a incredibly dark and the further you go down it the harder it is to see. you keep walking because you think that going straight is going to give you the right answers but it’s not…soon enough you’re going to find yourself stuck and in a terrible place, you’ll be in too deep that you’re not going to be able to get out as easily and you got in. i know, because i’ve walked that road and i know what it’s like. i know it’s hard…to change the way you see and think about things.
but i figured now, being toned and fit is so much better. the average weight means nothing, really. if you feel and look good and you’re healthy then there’s nothing wrong with that. you should be looking at the way you are and the way you feel, not the number on the scale…because that’s not who you are. it doesn’t need to be about getting skinny and losing weight, it should be about getting fit and healthy. because in the end that’s the only thing that’s really going to help you and work.
i haven’t but i hoping 4 months maybe 6 months (depends) i’ll be able to:) thanks so much for the support:)
oh cool! i’m from New Zealand so we’re basically on the same time zone:) i’m so pleased it’s the break because it gives me a chance to really get down and work on myself:) that’s great. i’m happy i can help you. let me know how your progress is coming along over the break if you’d like:) i’d be happy to know:)
start only having a little bit each day. restrict your intake with smaller and smaller amounts until you only eat it every second day then every few days, then maybe just once a week and soon enough it’s not going to be a huge habit anymore.
i used to have an obsession with gum (mostly because i’m obsessed with dental hygiene and i wanted a clean minty fresh mouth all the time) but it started to get really bad and i’d go through packets of it a day. which isn’t good because the chemicals in some gums aren’t healthy for your body and in fact cause weight gain, but these chemicals are also addictive so it’s hard to quit. my new years resolution last year - well it was more a bet with my friends, they said i couldn’t go 6 months let alone 1 month without chewing gum, so i was like “challenge accepted” i’ll go a year. so i basically went cold turkey. which in a way was probably helpful for me, because not only did my best friends have no faith that i could do it but it was a challenge that i had to overcome so i could prove them wrong. so now it’s been about 11 months and i haven’t chewed gum since new years eve 2010. i no longer crave it.
i’m not saying that you should go cold turkey because i don’t want you to binge on it and then get depressed cause you felt like you failed ( i know what that’s like) but take it little by little, it’s been a habit of yours for a long time so you need to treat it with care and slowly push yourself away and not make yourself feel like you need it because you don’t. when you crave it try eating something simple and healthy and when ever your crave it eat that piece of fruit or something so that the craving changes to wanting that fruit more than the rice.
yes, do your cardio which is all that you listed above and afterwards do you muscle building exercises like crunches etc.
the cardio helps get your heart rate up and burn fat, which is essential for building muscle and toning it when you do you exercises.
cardio will help reduce fat all over your body. depending on what cardio you do your body will tone all over - if you do running you’re really working all your muscles so you’ll tone everywhere but other cardio that doesn’t work every muscle probably wont be as affective.
