Last night after the work shift took some time and watched the Sing Animation. I could not still get over this scene, so emotional! 😍
I’ve been reading „Chatting with San” postings recently; she’s an outstanding blogger and a true inspiration to us all; if you’re interested, check out her page. So, I was reading her articles and she had a 30-day challenge that involved getting rid of all sweets in the home and quitting eating junk food, as well as cardio and exercise.
I’ve been exercising for a while, but I haven’t paid as much attention to diet and nutrition. I’m trying to be more conscious of the meals I eat and to limit my intake of sweets as well.
Taking a look at my daily foods
I eat sweets and sugary foods 7-8 times a day. I started counting every sweet food that I eat: sweet yogurts, sweet bars, cakes, pancakes, chocolate, and even salty and fatty foods like potato chips, salty bacon chips, etc.
Taking a look at my diet I am ashamed 😩. I did cut out on the fast food as I don’t travel so much and I don’t spend time in the food court at the mall anymore, however, I am still dissatisfied. I also used to order pizza or crispy menus. Therefore, from a cheat day, I managed to turn every day into a fatty meal plan, without even knowing it.
My meals are disordered, as I change shifts at work frequently, from the morning up to the core hours, and end up eating and 12 AM in the morning. I am a huge consumer of coffee but in exchange, I don’t consume any alcoholic beverages.
According to the weighing scale, I am now 64 kg in and have 1.68 in height. Now, that is not my purpose. I wish to arrive back at 50 kg, as I used to be. In Julie, I have planned a little trip to Bulgaria (if the quarantine and Covid19 situation will calm down) and I don’t want to look like a chubby girl. I have to try harder to make a difference. For me and my health.
I want to replace all the sweets with fruit (orange, bananas, kiwi, apples) and salty foods with vegetables. It will not be easy because I am a sweet junkie, but I need to change this unhealthy food plan. I ordered fish oil supplements, iron supplements (because of my iron deficiency), and some Korean Ginseng Supplements. I will write a post with the new natural supplements when they arrive.
Today is going to be the first day of 30 days of changes. I have avoided every sweet food, had only an egg in the morning with vegetables and a chicken soup at lunch. The next meal will be somewhere between 7 and 8 PM with a few fruits and maybe cashew nuts in between. Also, I made myself a nice lemonade and prepared a large cup of water. The shift will be over at 1 AM after finishing all tasks.
If you have any advice regarding my diet plan and my 30 days challenge, I invite you to comment or join if you would like to, of course!
“Dare to Be
When a new day begins, dare to smile gratefully.
When there is darkness, dare to be the first to shine a light.
When there is injustice, dare to be the first to condemn it.
When something seems difficult, dare to do it anyway.
When life seems to beat you down, dare to fight back.
When there seems to be no hope, dare to find some.
When you’re feeling tired, dare to keep going.
When times are tough, dare to be tougher.
When love hurts you, dare to love again.
When someone is hurting, dare to help them heal.
When another is lost, dare to help them find the way.
When a friend falls, dare to be the first to extend a hand.
When you cross paths with another, dare to make them smile.
When you feel great, dare to help someone else feel great too.
When the day has ended, dare to feel as you’ve done your best.
Dare to be the best you can –
At all times, Dare to be!”
