So, to top off this absolutely amazing fun week, today I got hit by a car.
*end of sarcasm
Oh well. Luckily nothing is broken, just some scratches and bruises.
Okay, so filming myself. Definitely most awkward thing I ever did. Not sure if I’ll upload anything. Hihi. Sorry!
Let’s make a new year resolutions video! Whooo!
Hope I can fix it. If so, you’ll know soon enough. :D

Aww, that’s so sweet!
How much it took… Well, I think most of the weightloss has to do with your head, and your customs. The hardest part of it all (for me) wasn’t saying no to certain foods, or working out. The hardest part was changing bad habits, and learning new healthy ones. Some things might seem so innocent, but are actually what made you so big in the first place.
What I also thought was difficult in the beginning, was that I thought I needed something that had already been done before. Like, a diet or something. Here’s the thing. I hate cold food, and I hate salads. Then there is a bunch of other stuff I strongly dislike. Problem was: Going on a diet, made me having to eat that stuff. Yuck. So, looking at it like this. ANY diet wasn’t going to work for me, besides. Have you ever read Bridget Jones diary? There are exceptions, workarounds and variations on everything. If you eat the “variation” 3 times in a row… Well, you might be eating less healthy than you started out with in the first place!
I quickly found a way that worked for me. Foodzy. Foodzy.com is a site where you can track your caloric intake. This worked incredibly well for me. I didn’t really know what I was doing, but I was losing weight, and in the beginning of my journey, that was all that mattered. I kept to a maximum amount of 1200 calories a day, I went running 4/5 times a week, and I was cold and tired constantly. The thing that kept me going was my progress!
When I had lost about 14-16 kilo’s (30-35 lbs) my weightloss halted. I hit a plateau, and that was when I realised I was doing something wrong. I decided to read up on food. I quickly figured out I ate way too little calories, and still too much junk. You see, if you only count the calories, you can still eat shit, just not too much of it.
So now I eat a lot more, and healthier food. This has been the hardest part for me, because I can easily devour a cow when I’m hungry, but I don’t get hungry until the end of the day. I can easily eat nothing for hours and hours, and all the sudden feel like I will die without eating everything in sight.
So I guess I am a work in progress. It’s funny how eating only 1200 calories a day seemed like a challenge one year ago, because I thought it was so little. Now I think it’s a challenge to eat healthy, but over 1800 calories a day. Though by healthy eating I lose weight a lot slower, I feel like it stays away more easily. It’s all about the habits I guess! I lost 6 kg through healthy eating so far! Before that, 16 kg. So that brings my total to 22 kg. I think that’s pretty awesome!
