I decided to do a kind of diary on my blog to share my further experience to keep weight so that way I may motivate others for a heathier life style.
Today is the women day but only in communist or post-communist countries –China, Poland, and Russia. I got a rose from my husband and I made gift for myself – buying some clothes. In Shanghai there is good sale on 8th of March for women. Since I lost weight most of my clothes are too large. I had this weight pretty long over 3 years, some clothes are still ok, but I had to look into my closet and see what is still suitable. Well women … always a good excuse to buy new staff.
By the way I am not perfect nor ideal and not always lead healthy life style, often I am too lazy to do anything or just too tired, or eat burgers and French fries, drink too much wine, watching all day long TV instead of going to gym. But when I was recovering after my arms were broken I carefully watched what I was eating and if this helped me to recover faster. In additional I had to limit amount of food since I was not exercising at all.
So in the first period when you want to lose kg/pounds you need to have full focus, no crappy food, no fast food, only good healthy choices as you limit amount you deliver to your body and it has to be a good quality food.
I felt sick yesterday but started to treat myself with natural medication. Even thou I felt sick I have decided to run and manage 1h. Now I feel much better but I did not go for the swimming with my friend just in case. My daughter is alos a bit sick probably because of weather.
Weight today 130 pounds, objective 125 pounds.
Just a quick overview of my day activity (not much today) & food:
Morning (ha… I woke up at 10am, but understandable since I went sleep at 3am) 1h walking & jogging
For lunch 200g of chicken liver from Kate and Kimi with quinoa and black beans and homemade sour kraut
My husband did sauerkraut but it was very salty and I was drinking a whole day, was extremely thirsty but maybe this actually helped me to recover a bit.
After that I relaxed doing shopping and went to do nails too.
The nails paint becomes almost an art, look at these:
Well these are not mine, I have picked a bit crazy today:
In the evening cocked broad bean and sandwiches (German dark bread) with butter, garlic and ham.
I did also lunch for next day for myself to go.
Now before going to bed 2 glasses of Chinese Puer tea helps to digest and on top of it I love how it taste.
Tomorrow another day to go to work, seems like it will not rain so I plan to walk to subway as usual.
Today it was raining all day in Shanghai but without morning jogging I check my apps and did over 7K steps, hm… even I was surprised.
I still miss our cars we had in Texas:
I always wanted pick up and that was really nice to drive this car.
Toyota Avalon was a bit faster:
I can fully understand people in US, especially in Texas, find hard to walk, no pathways, and cars like that:
Why would like to walk?
Anyway if you want to join and let us track together our efforts and results …?
I am preparing the 2 weeks dishes & recipes suggestions, based on what I was eating. I will post it next weekend in both English and Polish languages.
Good night, looks like Puer Tea made me sleepy ..
