sealion's Journal, 10 September 2013

I feel like I have no control over my diet recently. I want to eat healthily but I always make the wrong choices because I am lazy. I wish those days when I put 100% effort to reach my goal and my fitness level was good.

At the moment, I do not consider myself fat compared to when I first started fatsecret. I'm not skinny either. I'm alright. However, I'm tired of gaining and losing weight over and over again. Besides, I'm very weak. I did some heavy calisthenics (less than 10) and I felt giddy and nauseated. Oh my!

I have also been trying to update my diet calendar religiously although I do fail to record everything I eat some time because I snack too much tidbits. Calorie counting can be quite stressful for me at times.

I stumbled across "21 day no junk food challenge" and I thought why not. It may help me with start eating healthy again even though I will break the rules some days. It's better than not doing anything at all or binging furiously (I had lamington with thickened cream the day before). I hate binging but it's hard to resist it. I do not want to give myself any excuse. Frankly, I'm weak-minded.

For the next 21 days, my taste buds are refrained to go near:
- Chocolate (except dark chocolate)
- Candy
- Cookies and biscuits
- Cake and donuts
- Pastries
- White bread
- Chips
- Fast food
- Nutella, maple syrup and other spread-like things.

The challenge also comes with a daily question to answer, to help motivate anyone who joins this challenge as he/she goes.

Day 1: What is your current weight and what would you like it to be?
Day 2: What is your favorite part of your body?
Day 3: If you were at your ultimate goalweight right now what piece of clothing you buy/wear?
Day 4: What is your favorite healthy snack or treat?
Day 5: What is your exercise routine?
Day 6: Do you binge? If so, when was your last binge and how did it make you feel?
Day 7: What was the last compliment you remember receiving? What is the best compliment you could possibly receive?
Day 8: Have you got any tips or tricks to keep yourself from eating junk food?
Day 9: What is your favorite type of exercise?
Day 10: What do you like in a partner? (as irrelevant as this seems, I think they're talking about, like, a significant other...)
Day 11: Which part of being healthy do you struggle with the most? Diet? Exercise? Sleep? Mental Health?
Day 12: Why do you want to be fit?
Day 13: Do you have a special event coming up that you want to look good for? Who would you like to impress?
Day 14: Do you like yourself? How do you deal with negative feelings? What do you like the most about yourself?
Day 15: How do you feel after two weeks junk free? How have you found the last two weeks?
Day 16: Do you do weight training, cardio or both? What is your favorite and least favorite exercise?
Day 17: What are your top 3 reasons for being healthy?
Day 18: Do you go to the beach? Do you wear a bikini? How do you feel when you do so? Would you like to feel differently?
Day 19: Who do you look up to health/fitness-wise? What is it that you admire most?
Day 20: What is your ultimate fitness goal?
Day 21: How do you feel? Have you noticed any changes in yourself?

As mentioned, I do not know if I can stick to be sweet-free for 21 days. However, I promise I will get back up once I fall and I will never give up!
