Realistic Goals

19 Oct

So, carrying on with my last post, how can you shed those stubborn lbs?

Well, first of all…I’m writing this post for myself too. I think the first step is realizing that I/you need to change.

I don’t want to call it a diet…why? Because, I don’t want to live my life on a ”diet”, that’s just silly. I want to have a healthier lifestyle.

The main thing is water. People sometimes confuse thirst with hunger. So you can end up eating extra calories when an ice-cold glass of water is really what you need. Aim to have between 10-15 glasses of water a day, that’s roughly 2.5litres. “If you don’t like plain water, try adding citrus or a splash of juice, or brew infused teas like mango or peach, which have lots of flavor but no calories,” says Cynthia Sass, RD, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association.

Start by focusing on getting the recommended 5-9 servings of fruit and veg each day. It sounds like a lot but you can cram this all in all day.

Make your ”diet/lifestyle” change public. Tell people you want to change. It will improve your self-esteem and allow people to comment on your (hopefully) weightloss.

Give yourself one day off. That does NOT mean that you sit down on a Saturday afternoon with a bag of cookies and a big bottle of pop but treat yourself, have a slice of bread, have a cookie. One slice of bread and one cookie will NOT kill you and WILL NOT allow you to gain 5-10lbs.

Exercise: Aim to walk at around 6/7km p/h. 5 times a week. Gradually build this up to 7 days a week of one hour exercise. DO NOT over estimate what you can do at the beginning, remember your body has been in survival mode. You will only end up hurting yourself.

Have a red flag weight
Once you’ve lost the weight, you need to keep it off. This is where the red flag comes in. You need to pick a weight and vow to never get heavier than it again. It is normal for your body to fluctuate five to ten pounds. I recommend picking a weight that is ten pounds heavier than what you “normally” weigh and never weigh more than it again.

So those are my tips, it’s now time for ME and YOU to put them in action.

An example of a meal plan should be like this:

Breakfast:

Lukewarm glass of water with a dash of lime or lemon BEFORE food.

A handful (NOT A BOWL) of special K or Alpen/Muesli with either soya or skimmed milk.

Lunch:

A piece of brown/multigrain bread with flora NOT butter.

A cup of soup.

OR

Lean Meat with Salad

Dinner: Lean Meat with Salad or Salad alone with piece of fruit after.

This is my aim.

I will lose weight.

I will stop eating junk food.

I will exercise more.

AND I WILL DRINK 2.5litres of water a day.

I will be happy NAKED. LOL and ..when I reach that plateau and it won’t shift, I will resort to fat burning pills.

The wait is almost over…I’m a Gleek.

Who doesn’t still love Friends?

Can you believe it has been off our screens for 6years! It ran from September 22, 1994 to May 6, 2004.

I still really miss it, although, I can still watch the episodes over and over again which is fantastic!

Do you know that before the show went out on air for the first time it was actually going to be called Insomnia Cafe. How awful is that!

Friends had around 20million viewers a night on America’s NBC Channel.

There are ‘rumors’ that there could be a movie heading our way in 2011! Hope so!

Here are some bloopers from season 10..

Part 1

1minute 20seconds is hilarious! They actually should have put that! sooo funny!

Part 2

How I met your mother

2 Sep

I totally heart ‘How I met your mother’

I just finished fat00r and what better way to relax than some How I met your mother.

Barney is so unique, hilarious actually.

Funny thing is though, apparently he is gay in real life.. shocking eh?

This is one of my favorite shows. It’s up there with Grey’s Anatomy although Grey’s Anatomy definitely is my number 1. Mcdreamy and Mcsteamy = two hot doctors, how can you not love it.

I know, guys, you are probably thinking, oh not another desperate housewives, grey’s anatomy, house, friends

but really… How I met your mother is one of the best shows ever on television.

And, if you didn’t have reason to watch it before…you do now, latest news is Scherzinger  yes that’s NICOLE SCHERZINGER from Pussycat Dolls is set to guest star.. yes, that’s what I thought NOW you want to watch it.
