Workaholic

Working

Pros:

  • Income $$$
  • Restriction on food
  • Experience for the future (social interactions!)
  • Something to do!

Cons:

  • Less time to do homework
  • Tiring (My poor feet)
  • Less motivating to work out

So far working has not improved my healthy lifestyle. 😦 I have been eating big breakfasts, eating a little snack, drinking a small soy latte, and then eating a bit for dinner and a LOT of snacks afterwards till 10 pm. In addition to this crazy meal schedule, I have not worked out at all.

So here’s to a new month. July. July, you shall be the month of my transformation. Here’s to a healthy lifestyle and a healthy body.

The Need for Food

So much of my overeating goes to being bored and feeling “the need for food.” Last Friday I had the opportunity to start my first day at a retail shop. I had a green smoothie around 9:50 am and didn’t eat a snack till 2:30. Although I don’t recommend this, I realized how full and satisfied with my meal that I didn’t need to eat more for breakfast. The problem with not eating that long was my starving stomach at 3:30 when I was able to eat some food. It made my meal timing off, and my stomach couldn’t tell if it was hungry or not when I ate later in the day.

Too Much of Good Stuff

I eat pretty healthy for the most part. I make sure I get my nutrients. Eat my vegetables, avoid fried food.

But there are certain things that are good for you in moderation.

For example, cereal. My little secret enemy.

It’s fine if I have ONE bowl per day. And it’s healthy too! (Kashi or just granola) BUT having more than 10 bowls a day (no hyperbole there) is NOT okay.

Dear self, I know it’s yummy and healthy, but in moderation. I should know when my limit is and when I get addicted.

So here’s to continuing my health journey and changing habits such as too many bowls of cereal. (plus who likes farting too much? Not me!)

Sun-kissed and Toned

Last time I worked out was like a week and a half ago.

Sigh.

I NEED to workout. When I workout, I feel motivated to eat better. Today I stayed inside all day and ate 150% of my calories before 12pm. So I’m going to challenge myself starting tomorrow to run 3x a week, go to the gym at least 3x a week as well, and stay active!

They say at least 30 minutes of activity each day, but I want to lose weight! So I’m going to try to even incorporate some tabata and other interval training to burn some fat.
