Ok.. So I thougt it was about time to start a new journal.. My other one was getting old and things in my life are changing..
In one week, the 11th of August, I'm going to Rome. I will study italian, meet new people and have fun!
My diet and workout will also change.. I haven't been real strict for a while and that has started to show.. Workout wise I've been a good girl, but my food choices haven't always been the best... So, I'm starting the "for emergency use only" diet featured in M&F hers June/July 2001 issue.. Some people her might not agree with it, but it's what I've chosen to do..
I realise it won't be very fun always thinking about eating on the right time and always preparing food while being in Rome, but I see no other choice.. I've had it feeling fat and I have to do something! And I can't wait 8 weeks (the time I'll spend in Rome) to start it.. So, I'll do my best to make it work.. If I find it disturbing my life there too much, I'll have to come up with something new.. After all, these two months are supposed to be the time of my life..
I'm very nervous about this.. not the restricted eating part, I've done that before, but the leaving home part.. I will go by myself and I'll share an apartment with a bunch of strangers.. I feel like this is something I have to do to grow as a person.. Even though it might not seem so to others, these two months are a big step for me to take.. And I am sure I will have lots of fun!
Thanx babe! Yeah, I will be able to post while being there.. At least I think so.. the school is supposed to have internet available for students! I would miss you guys a whole lot if not able to post..
6 eggwhites with mushrooms.. (I was supposed to have oatmeal here too, but I missed reading that line and had to put it in meal 3.. )
4 oz sweet potatoe
1 cup mushrooms
5.5 oz chicken breast
1 tbsp sunflower seeds
5 oz tuna (I can't believe I was able to get it down! I hate tuna!..)
sallad with: cucumber, red pepper, lettuce
1/2 cup oatmeal (missed in meal 1... )
1 tbsp flax
Training today was 60 min running (pretty slow run...) and 30 min dancing/cooldown/stretching.. I ran with my Mp3-player today and I really started to feel like dancing.. But I didn't feel like doing Britney moves in the middle of the park where people were having picnicks.. So I waited until I got home and danced for a while! Had so much fun! I miss my old dance workouts..
Hey Nikegirl!! I like your new journal! I really need to start one for me.. but I am trying to come up w/ a new goal??
Anyway.. Everything looks great in here! Whats that "emergency diet" like In that old M/F magazine? I don't remember it! I know how ya feel though thinking you need to do something! Good Luck with everything! I can't believe your Rome trip is just a week a day!!!! You leave sunday? (thats my birthday! ) ANYWAY~
sounds like you had a blast dancing at home the other day! I do that too sometimes!! (when nobodys watching though cause I look hilarious)!
Take care sweetie!
PS~ HOW DID YOU EAT THAT TUNA??? I hate it too.. but I know I should eat it....any suggestions??
Kuso: I promise! I'll try to get a gladiator pose in front of the Coloseum! Or maybe you'd like a bikini pose in front of my room-mates better? Sorry man, aint happening!
Eggman: Yeah, I thought it was about time to start a new one! I'm liking the diet so far, though I've made some changes, there was way too little fat in it..
And I happen to be a very good Britney imitator! "I'm a slaaaaave for youuuu"
Princess: The diet can be found on the M&F hers homepage.. check it out.. though there's too little fat, so I had to change it..
Yep, leaving this sunday! That's your b-day? That's so cool! I'll be thinking of you sitting on my plane!
And about the tuna, it was really hard! It's so yucky.. But I'm learning to eat it, had it again today..
WOW GIRLIE!! Your diet looks Great!
I will check out that diet! Thanks for the info sista! How long is your flight going to be to Rome?
I bet u are a great Brittany imitator! Shes one of my fave!
I give ya two thumbs up w/ that tuna.. I just don't know if i can eat that or not!!
have a great day girlie!!!
Hey NG~ I was wondering if you would care if I did this "For Emergengy Use Only" program too/ start a new journal? I was thinking of doing the 8 week program instead though!! I really am thinking of losing this 7 lbs. I have gained~ And to work harder on my legs! Would you mind girl??
I don't want to copy you..thats why I am asking!
