I promise I won't be one of those weirdo people with hair touching their butt but I think I'm gonna let it keep growing for the time being. I know, you care so much.

March madness

At the end of this month it will be my one year anniversary with this blog. I haven't hit 30 pounds yet. I mean yes, I'm down a size, 20 pounds now, feel better, eat better (most of the time) and overall, proud of myself. But, I set out for 30 and damnit I have to do it.

The plan
Boot camp insanity.
I plan to go to boot camp Mon-Fri mornings. Ouch. It begins today. I did my work out for the day, tomorrow morning boot camp and so on.

Ahhhh. I don't think I can lose 10 pounds in one month but hell, 5? I don't know. I just need to step it up a notch. Help me?

If you read this and know me personally, help!! Be a supportive friend. Don't let me reach for those chips at the office (you know who you are), don't let me go for sushi with you (you too...), don't let me fail!!
By June??


8:00 a.m: Cup of strawberry, banana fruit juice. Look at me expanding from my usual of only water!

12:30 p.m: Mmmm! Overpriced but yummy. Tomato soup, black bean and avocado salad. I also had a few pieces of super dark chocolate.
3:00 p.m: I'm pre writing this knowing I'm gonna eat this later and I'm super excited about it. I'm having an apple with my homemade Nutella. Yay!

7:00 p.m: Salad. Kale, avocado (healthy fats overload today), tomato, salt, wheatberry, lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, cilantro, dried basil

Exercise (8:45 p.m): 30 mins on treadmill. 15 running non stop. Woohoo! I've never passed th 15 minute barrier. I always give up at 10. Today, 15, good. Next time I just gotta force it to 20. I always say this, never do it. Whatever. 262 calories. I'll take it.

Sunday, March 4, 2012


I realized that my entire life I've lived within 200 meters of a hydro tower. My parents had it right behind the backyard and even now my condo is right in front of one.

I don't like it.

I just googled and the # 1 thing it said it causes most is leukemia in children. Ummmm, yea. That hits close to home.

More reasons here for me to want to move.


Another iPhone post so it won't be pretty.

11am: almond butter on Melba toast

Friday, March 2, 2012


Yay Friday.

I just came across this little fun fact on the internets. Good to know! I need to get back to my eating almonds first thing in the morning streak.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and the almond is the most important morning food. Almonds contain protein and all essential minerals for the human body. Almond = "all world [al-mond], container of the 144 elements." When almonds are the first thing in your stomach after arising, they set the hydrochloric acid tolerance for the day, providing all-day protein digestion. When almonds are eaten first, they are efficiently digested since stomach acids are concentrated after the nightly fast. Click here for source.

9:45 a.m: Small avocado diced in a bowl, some sea salt.

1:00 p.m: Sandwich. Thick bready bread, avocado (I know, again, I forgot and it was too late, I had ordered it.), goat cheese, garlic spread, olive oil, arugula, salt. Some greens on the side.

1:30 p.m: Half a biscuit. Holy crap it was good. I don't know what was in it but I know I tasted butter so yea, I'm sure that was fatty.

Thursday, March 1, 2012


6:00 a.m: Cup of fruit juice. Protein bar

Exercise (7:00 a.m): 45 min boot camp

Today was good. There is a girl in my class who's been in it for like what 8 months? Omg. 8 months. Anyway, she's very much like me and lately we've been in the mode of doing more. So, I told her about my thoughts of hardcore March. The fact that March makes this blog one year old bothers me. I still am not at 30 pounds, feels so close. The plan is to go to the other boot camp that is Mon/Wed/Fri also. So 5 days a week now. DEATH! But I have to do it. So I've inquired. We are going to start next Wednesday if it all works out and there's space. If not, she's becoming my new gym buddy that I have to meet there so now I feel accountable. I feel good about it.
