A post dedicated to Jennifer Lawrence. I love her hair, body and that she is in the new hunger games movie. I also think her body/look is a reasonable goal for me since we have the same body shape and coloring. Shes fit, curvy and gorgeous!
1) I sometimes goof off when I say I'm doing something proactive!
2) I have a "beauty mark" on my butt and I love it! Wow TMI
3) I have super cute underwear but sometimes if I haven't done laundry for a while... I have to go for my ugly underwear and it honestly makes me bummed (hehe) the whole day.
4) I get hair on the tops of my toes (ew) and I shave it off ever so often.
5) I seem like a good girl but really there is a bad side in me that I don't often show. I can be crass and dirty when I want too... I just know how to hide it. For example I never ever swear out loud, but I say a whole bunch of bad words in my head instead.
6) Sometimes when I say I walked the dog "far" I really mean around the block. (Though not anymore!)
7) I'm addicted to the computer!
8)I don't usually take a shower everyday unless I work out hard but every other day. Do people really get that dirty?? I sure don't... Im always good until the next day.
9) I don't really live in Vancouver but very close.
Hmm... today Im not doing good but Im not doing bad. I need to really get in this! But I feel like I shouldn't push myself because then I won't stick with this.
So..heres the thing I ate really healthy until I had to make cookies for my Mom to bring to an event. I love making cookies. Im known for my cookies. If I could pick any job it would be in the baking field. So I think you can guess what happened. I ate some. I know... Its bad. Second day is a bitch? Thats what they always say at least. Heres the damage: 2 cookie dough balls and 2 small baked cookies...so four small cookies in total.
To help that will be my snack... and dinner I will eat a touch lighter. I am also planning to workout so hopefully that will help. I just cant make this a habit!
Tomorrow I am suppose to party with my friends but because I have so much to do right now with school, I might not make it. Which I guess will save my diet as well hahahaha.
I just gotta remember: You are BAD! You prevent me from wearing a bikini! You look all sweet and innocent but really you are just sugar and fat trying to cling onto my body!! Would Marisa Miller eat you? HELL NO! She would take one look and you and then look at her abs and say "You think I got this body from you? Google me and cookies...find anything? I didn't think so." Hahaha had to let that out!
Abs of steel? Yes please!!
Found some tips to get me some abs!
1. Kick up your cardio
2. Clean up your diet
3. Lift weights and engage your core
4. Keep your metabolism going by eating smaller meals instead of big ones
5. Drink more water
6. Do crunches
I don't expect to get abs overnight and I know it takes hard work and dedication but I think its good to aim at something hard. Even if you never get it... you achieve way more than if you didn't have that goal.
I don't know if many of you guys know this but in Canada...milk products are a lot of money and we don't have as much selection. So about once and month we head down to the states. So we were stocking up doing our usual thing in Costco...when I found a tub of Greek yogurt. I love Greek yogurt and I don't even care to know how much fat is in it. I know its a lot, but when something is so creamy and delicious you honestly don't care. However I sometimes check...and this yogurt is fat free!! A whole 0%! I was thrilled but also skeptical if it would taste good. But it does! It is super thick but just with no flavor. So this morning I put in cinnamon, a touch of honey and some frozen grapes. YUM!! Plus it has 23 g of PROTEIN!
So I went to bed at 11. Which is fine right, I wasn't feeling well, retired to bed early and just chilled until 11. Then I turned off all the lights preparing to fall asleep in minutes. However I could not turn my brain off. All I thought about was that Mexico is in one month. First I thought about how fun it will be going there with my best friend. But then I remembered bathing suits. Also remembering that my friend looks good in one. I then thought about what I should get. Tankini??... Oh no not a bikini. But its Mexico! Will I look weird with so much skin covered? Will I have to go for the bikini? But which one? And my stomach is not in tip top form. A little flabby. And my arms! A part I have hated since I can remember. However they are much nicer due to weight lifting a lot. But still! All in all!
So.... at midnight I was wide awake and felt like I needed to do something!! So I worked out haha. My arms literally hurt as I write this. I pushed them to the max. Do I count this for yesterdays workout or todays? haha. I guess it is technically todays. So that is 15-20 mins of intense cardio/strength training with pound weights and 10 pound kettleball. Hurt like a mother.
I have tried green juices before and actually don't mind them. The main idea behind them is to juice anything green and healthy. Usually the bulk of the juice is celery or cucumber and then other vegetables like spinach, green apples, lemons, and anything else green that you can find ;)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 cups spinach
2 cups cucumber
1 head of celery
Juice of 1 lime
Juice and then keep in fridge and drink at mornings and when you want to during the day.
It cleanses your body of toxins aka radiant skin!

Google it and you will find a whole bunch of information that will convince you to drink this raw super drink...even if you would rather it be something else haha.
Not sure who this is but I remember her being British. I love her curves! Even though I think her boobs are very fake!
I found this a long time ago and saved it. I saved it as size 8 girl..so since she is British that must be a size 6 US. Really my ideal body.
I need to take my dog for longer walks! I have to walk him everyday and because he's a smaller dog I tend to get lazy. I only go around the block usually, and while that does the job I think I should do better! I think a longer walk with be good for me and him! I just need to be determined to take him earlier and right away at 3:30ish since it gets so dark so early now. Even in the bad weather I need to be determined to take him!!
So like I said before..today was a bit tough to eat healthy. But I deff tried! So today wasn't bad.Was it the best? Ahh... no but judge for yourself.
Oatmeal with mixed berries and yogurt (together) Snack:
4 turkey slices
1 cup of green/fruit smoothie
large coffee with cream and sugar (Have to get stevia and milk so I can have that instead!)
Bite of pumpkin pie Lunch:
3 Turkey slices
3 tbs. of avocado Snack:
10 smarties Dinner:
1 cup of 2% cottage cheese
I only had cottage cheese and a apple later for dinner because Im feeling pretty gross right now. Might be getting something because my family is sick too.
45 mins at gym. Mostly elliptical then 10 mins of bike.
Today on my first day its been funny. I haven't told my family that I am committed to getting healthier or that I've made this blog... but for me to go on health kicks arn't super rare. Even if I don't do what I say, I always talk about healthy foods and have switched some products in my house like whole wheat rice instead of rice..etc. Which Im sure has helped me pretty much maintain my weight...and I think little frequent "splurges" got it to creep up slowly. Just enough for impact in the end..but not enough to get me concerned. Especially since I still fit into the same clothes. Maybe because I have more muscle now then before? Im not sure.
Anyways...off topic. What I was going to write about is that today my family has decided to do some winter eating. Which includes a huge costco pumpkin pie, egg nog, chips, and a HUGE bag of smarties. I've been good though despise that all. Usually I would join because it seemed normal when everyone in my family was eating it. But not today! I have a bite of pumpkin pie and about 10 smarties.
