Sun Rise, Bunker del Carmel Barcelona

I am in need of guidance. While compulsively snapshotting the amazing view of Barcelona, I took a moment to sit quietly, look out and pray. I need something bigger than me to give me the answers. I hope that I find what I am looking for soon.

 

21 Days to Form a Habit.

I’m on day 2 of my challenge to change my lifestyle, lose weight and be a happier version of myself. Yesterday went well. I started using Herbalife again. I had a shake for breakfast and for lunch. I had a chicken breast with lettuce, tomato, mushroom, onion for dinner and I had 2 handfuls of almonds and cucumber as snacks. I had a a smoothie of milk, banana and a spoonful of protein powder after gym. I did a 50 minute zumba class in the evening. I’ve also started a piggy bank where I will deposit W1000 ($1) every time I exercise.

I still feel tired today. I tried my best to get great sleep last night, and I did – almost 8 hours, but I think my body needs some time to get over how I’ve been treating it lately.

I braced the scale and I put on 6kg from the 16kg that I had previously lost. It wasn’t the best moment of my life, but I am so determined to go above and beyond this time. I won’t lie, I still have this underlying lack of faith that I won’t lose any weight despite the hard work.

I will go to a Tae-bo class tonight, and eating has gone well today, too.

It apparently only takes 21 days to form a habit. Yesterday was tough, at times, but I kept telling myself that the beginning is always the hardest. I will get into a great routine that I love again.
