I'm having my final exams and essays, so I'll write this real quick (and I'll start writing my weight loss story again). I still exercised and ate as little as possible though... And, as I confessed, I started out at 70kg (154pounds...ish) a week ago (or so).
And... I'm at 66kg (148~149pounds) :D haha I'm so happy to see some progress! I hope everyone feels motivated to start working out!
Sorry for being so long gone! I couldn't follow up with this meals & exercises for two days but I will come back to the routine. I'll count today (22nd) as Day 5 and continue on with the dietary meals and exercises, so stay tuned!
Lunch (2:00) - six spoons of veggie pasta salad - tazo orange blossom tea - water
Dinner (6:00) - a bowl of spinach and lettuce with five cherry tomatoes - a grilled chicken breast - tazo orange blossom tea - tall ice americano
I'm pretty busy especially in the morning, so I was barely available to have a banana with a cup of coffee. Make sure you don't skip a meal! ....and I was outside for the whole time and the healthiest thing available was veggie pasta salad so I really had a minimum amount that would keep me full.
I couldn't take pictures of these but I will try to have all of the photos taken in the future.
Breakfast (9:00) - four cherry tomatoes - half a bowl of spinach (didn't finish it) - one-third of a green apple - three spoons of soft tofu with a spoon of soy sauce diluted with water*
- four fruit jelly
I kept breakfast veggie-friendly and still consumed some protein by having tofu. Tofu will keep you full until the next meal. I really don't like its flavour, so I added a spoon of soy sauce diluted with water to give it some taste. Let's keep the sodium to very minimum.
Also, treat yourself if you kept up with your own dietary program, so that you can remain abstinent from consuming too much sweets at once.
Lunch (1:00) - 3 spoons of roasted and ground grains - 250mL of skim milk - water
I hate grains but roasted and ground grain is in powder form of which tastes quite sweet. It's called "me-soot-garu" in Korean and you can find it in any Korean store. You can drink it like any protein shake, preferably with milk. Then, start diluting it with water little by little once you get used to its taste. If you don't like the taste of water, keep your milk skimmed. It's very healthy and important part of the dietary program.
Dinner (5:00) - two chicken breasts - five cherry tomatoes - one boiled egg - balsamic sauce - two bowls of lettuce - water - two cups of coffee
I'm pulling an all-nighter so I had to keep another portion of food (I still have one chicken breast and a bowl of lettuce still with me) in case I get hungry and eat chinese food. I'll try (and you should too, if you are following what I'm doing) to minimize the last meal of the day but I have to pull an all-nighter and I had no choice.
Because I have to pull an all-nighter, I didn't exercise today but I'll do so tomorrow :)
Wish me luck and I'll come back with the next lists of meals tomorrow!
(someone gave me a nice piece of advice saying that I should, for the first week, minimize the amount of food I'm eating and the calories I'm consuming FIRST so that my body gets a chance to get used to the changes (and start exercising the week after). I definitely agree and I'm considering it but I got my friend involved into this dietary program so I have no choice but to start exercising from tomorrow and onward.
* Drinking water is one of the most important things to do! Please drink as much as possible. 4-6 bottles of water would be the best.
From tomorrow and onward, I'll be posting something that I've been promising to myself for sooo long: my own weight loss story. I know I tried to dedicate this blog to cosmetics and cosmetics only; however, I just thought it would be interesting to share because weight has been such a huge part of my life as much as cosmetics have been. I decided to post this weight loss story here because:
1) I got tired easily and my body was becoming heavier and heavier.
2) I felt uncomfortable and found myself hiding from seeing others.
3) I wanted this weight loss story to be an inspiration for others in the future; I'm not saying I want to show off, but I just wanted to demonstrate how you can lose weight in healthy way, having to consume none of "weight loss miracle" products in the market.
It's quite private side of me to share but I will post my sizes WEEKLY so that you can actually see the progression. Daily, I'll list all the food I had for each meal and exercises I did (with exact number of hours and minutes).
