Non-weight scales victory

So… the scale is slowly going down, but besides that I’ll list those small signs of progress that I’ve noticed.

 

  • I can now skip the rope 10 times in a row, I couldn’t do freaking 4 when I started.
  • The jeans a friend got me in December that were tight, are now comfortable to wear,but not loose in the ass.
  • Been attending gym 5-6 days a week successfully
  • Finally deciding on making fitness my lifestyle
  • Adding cardio to daily routine
  • I allowed myself to skip gym a day when I really didn’t feel my best, attention, I wasn’t just being lazy.
  • Cutting down on processed food and gonna cook again

 

That’s pretty much it, will see measurements in 2 weeks.

 

 

 

I like to move it move it

Ya know I work from home, so no taking buses and stuff for me, I do prefer to walk if the distance is within 35 minutes though, but I don’t really go out as much so… I do attend gym and work out, lift weights and battle rope and what not, also afterwards I jump on the bike, but being sedentary the rest of the day isn’t good!

So, besides the 10k steps, I like to do something else, I’ll share some of my favourites but you an of course find something you like, YouTube has A TON of free workout videos, specially cardio which is what I am aiming for at home, you may choose Yoga, etc.

 

Wii games  (there’s many more but I lack the extras to play them, like the board) 

  • The “Just Dance” franchise
  • Gold’s gym routine cardio dance
  • Walk it out

 

So those are my choices, of course I got 8 Minute tae-bo with Billy Blanks if I go for a very quick one.

 

Enjoy!!

 

New rules

Ok so I was taking a hard look at my life, regarding my nutrition, my habits and all of that nice stuff. I checked MyFitnessPal app and discovered I have been eating WAY TOO much processed food.  ( First of all, none of the canned/packed food I eat has MSG, high fructose syrup, sugar as the first 1-3 ingredients, etc) that is tasty, yes, does it add up protein, yes, does it have a wee too much sodium? Yes and also, sadly it does have a wee too much fat ( I love fat, but this is not the fat that I’m looking for) and I’ve been relying on them excessively. I haven’t cooked in a good while.. so it’s time to change that!

I’m not saying I’ll never touch anything outta package, but I want to make that around my 15-20% food intake, not 90% lol, I’m gonna shake off the dust from my recipe blog ( I do have one) and cook again  :3 I’ll still have hummus and cookies and stuff, just you know, gonna make it fit better.

I also wanna re-incorporate vegetable milk ( the kind with no sugar of course ), more stuff like tofu and trying out tempeh too! Much more veggies and also eating enough.. FAT, yes, ladies and gentlemen, fat is GOOD for you, you need it for hormonal process and to make some vitamins travel and what not. With this I mean food like avocado, nuts, seeds, not to go and gorge on fries ( that’s a new food group, carbfats lol ).  And in the right proportion but I know for sure I usually eat fewer fat than needed. ( Most of my tasty packaged food takes away from fat macro, for example)

For the gym part, I am playing just dance or some light cardio daily, not a lot, more like 15-25 minutes, more for fun than anything but it’s a nice way to add activity.  I’m trying to do harder cardio, like really not being able to talk and sing lol, but for now I pulled off only 15 minutes, I’ll work towards 30 minutes or so  🙂 of course aiming to maintain an average of 10k steps a day too.

 

What aboot the booze? Ain’t nobody giving up craft beers, lol, but since this is going to be a lifestyle for me, I am going for  1-2, make it really count and on those days I found these tips, by a wonderful woman Sascha Fitness ( check out her SaschaFitness )

Drinking times:

  • Limit or avoid stuff like rice, oats on that day, since the body is already dealing with alcohol, which the body treats as damn poison by the way.
  • Limit or avoid the fats, cos your liver can only handle as much.
  • Load up that ass on veggies and protein.
  • Water intake should go up up up!
  • Drink slowly dammit.
  • I pre-add the beers I’ll have in a given day and behave accordingly
  • Eat before going out to drink!

Make your numbers right 😛

All in all, this is what’s going on lately, also got in touch with an old friend, been meeting new people.

As an aditional note: I am not quitting all processed food and drinks, not forever not for 3 months, because I want to make sustainable, life long lasting changes, not quick fixes, this is the first time I’ve said it, this is going to be my new LIFESTYLE. So I can’t do the things I did before (ditching all for a while then back to it)

Yes, this time (s)LRIG are quite important! And we get to see Ruuko back, and the other ones whose name I forgot, but we know them all from previous seasons, this is truly coming together in a big massive event, I seriously got all doki doki when Pirulul (Whatever her name is omg, I am so bad with names sometimes) finds Ruuko, I really want this to be the best season ever!

Suzuko! Chi-chan! The weird girl who wrote about wixoss! Ruuko! Carnival mofo! Everyone!

 

Mahou Shoujo Site (Anime)

I am uncertain about if I did review the manga or not…. I am pretty sure I did at some point…anyway the anime adaptation is here, if you have read the source you know it’s a dark, oppressive, depressing, helpless atmosphere, with bullying, physical and psychological abuse, attempted rape, self-harm and mental illness left and right!  It really isn’t for everyone.

Charmed yet? Well, I highly encourage you to watch if you liked stuff like hmm let’s say Jigoku Shoujo, (oh the wortst is the protagonist’s brother I think) and even that doesn’t get as bad as this one, I promise, it’s different of course, but in comparison the bullying and abuse in JS is like a stroll in the park compared to this title!

You should really check it out, it looks very good, it’s only the first episode out and I’m already sulking on my chair lol.

If you like feel-good stuff, this is NOT for you, at all, like don’t even think about it, if you embrace the dark side as well as the bright one like me though… please go ahead. Ah right, it does have some sort of yuri, I recall but amidst the total despair it really doesn’t do much for me.

PS I read comments on the episode and some people think the bullying is “too over the top”, like bitch please, have you ever heard of the “concrete girl” or read “vengeance classroom”? THAT is serious bullying, this is, well even light in comparison, I know outside Japanese culture this stuff might seem almost impossible to happen but if you do proper research you’ll find it possible indeed.

Seikon no Qwaser (Manga)

I was wrong, the manga starts off sorta meh BUT it does get so, so, so, so much better than I could had ever imagined, surely there’s a lot of breasts cos holy milk duh! But it’s not merely fanservice, most nude scenes are..well not what I’d call sexy ( we do get so see more of Katja’s special treatment for Hana woot) but she also gets on with other women, which I didn’t like so much, but being the empress and all, I guess it’s fine.

I see now why the second season of the anime ended like that, it’s a shame there’s no third season or a movie, the material after that is AWESOME, it’s when shit gets really interesting.

Hana even gets some weird electric power, come on, animate that!!!!!

So, I did like the anime cos it had more Hana and Katja but the manga story is so interesting past where Sasha and Hana infiltrate that school, damn.

When you throw the coin and it falls on your face later on

..That’s supposed to mean like you tell people something or give advice and eventually you come to fully understand it and see how you are so not following your own words. I don’t know why I used a coin as metaphor..anyway

The thing is this, I used to have these very important things that I wouldn’t tell just anyone, like most people do, but for me those ended up being an anchor, a point to be exploited and something to get angsty over, so I decided to throw it all away, yes, I tried having a boyfriend and being “normal” (obviously didn’t work,I just felt bad cos I did it late in my life rather than early, as it’s more common, but that’s utter bullshit, I hit bottom rock, I really disliked myself the worst so at that point I didn’t give a flying fuck,  I also even ate meat again (mind you ask, this was horrible for me, but I hated me so much, so deep, it suited me well, for being what I was, is what I was thinking) gladly this last part didn’t last long cos I just couldn’t do it and well, that relationship ended and then I lost all the extra weight and some ( I gained around 25 kilos, 55 lbs) , but I still didn’t heal my mind so I had this girlfriend..hmm how to say it.. I thought it was my last chance so I settled for it, I did hit the gym religiously, I was at my lowest body fat ever, was I happy? fuck no.)

I also did drugs, I used to cut myself, hmm, I had a “light” eating disorder, I took medicine for my mood ( dunno name in English haha), I tried not to cry for so long, then I cried a lot, now I can cry easily sometimes and I don’t care, there is not only one way to live your life, I had very complex and interesting shit going on, I own all of it, I’m not ashamed, everyone can know, I’m a damn open book, this is what has been part of me but it’s not what I am now.

Then we move forward to German ex #2 ( I need to come up with better nicknames lol ) well, I wanted to save money to go visit so when I met her I was less fit that when she came visit me, I also ate a damn lot of snacks, was that her fault? Gods no, but it was a clear sign that I needed to fix something within me.  Of course the uncomfortable feeling and the lack of action also led to boredom-eating lol, so I gained..like 9 kilos that time, I’m still shaking them off, it’s been almost 2 years xD

My point is, I told everyone to be good on the Easter long weekend and watch their meals…what did I do? I had way too many beers and had fries too, I really need to do as I tell others, freaking eat before going to to drink, cos then I don’t feel like eating crap AND going out with a set amount of money, not with a freaking card, if I can stick to these precepts for 2 damn weeks I’ll be good for life.

I..think I’m afraid, I am afraid I won’t be able to get back to that fit style I had back in 2014, alas I didn’t have an ass so I wouldn’t trade that haha, but yes, that is what is going on, if I do well with my macros and activity but “fuck up a bit” then I have an excuse to say I’m progressing very slow, or even getting stalled. You see, I don’t believe in heavy calorie restriction, that makes me cringe, so I have 200-400 less calories which I make gym account for, I go 5 days a week, 3 are def more demanding than the other 2, and I aim to walk an average of 9k steps a day, some days I go over 15 some days I barely hit 7k. I’ll add some dance cardio in the mornings, starting with 3 days a week, see how that goes. I am just afraid I’m a wee too old to look as I want, make no mistake, I’m not a shallow fool, I wholesomely believe how one person’s look is a direct reflection on how they are feeling inside about themselves.

So, with that out of the way… I’m sure I’ll be fine.

Dafuq is wrong with this song? I thought it was about like religious stuff or a very energetic girl named Gloria! Nope, bitch was hearing voices in her head  :v
