Holy crap you have some self control lmao! I don't think i could ever do that lol. Right now my plan is to keep a food diary and every few days pick something to improve (decrease carbs in a certain area, switch out a snack, eat more salads, space out my eating more etc) and just keep working on slowly improving my diet all the while increasing cardio. Right now i want to lose weight but im more focused on slow changes towards long term improved habits then temporary things. A sauna would be awesome but the only ones i know of around me are for people to go spend the day at. If i ever become rich im getting one of those mini saunas in my house haha.

Sounds like your goals with your food are on track and pretty attainable. If your diet improves, maybe drop a fraction of your total daily calories and gradually increase your cardio there you have it ~ weight loss.

Hope you have a great weekend, anything exciting planned?

Hey. :) ya my current ideas about my goals for life is to shoot for attainable things and work up to them and make them set into my life style and not just something i have to struggle through every day lol. My basic ideal diet plan would be
Meal 1- Shake with fruit, coconut milk, protein powder, spinach etc.
M2-stirfry with lots of veggies and tofu and/or beans
M3-Something like trail mix, apple with pb, salad or etc.
M4 and 5-Protein shake before and after work out
M6-A healthy dinner with lots of vegetables and protein with carbs being moderate to low.
Then after dinner if i a hungry before bed i plan to just eat salads until i sleep :).

Lowering my carbs and eating more salad should lower my calories and every 3 days i plan to make a little goal to work on and i plan to start going to the gym earlier to fit in some cardio before i lift weights.

Friday i went out of town to work, did a wine show thing and ended up with 2 bottles of french wine that i will have to indulge in with my boyfriend at some point ;D. For the weekend i don't have anythng too fun planned. Have some school to work on and i am hoping to finish my schedule and goals so i can get fully started with them monday :).

Have been doing well with my diet. I feel like i have lost a tiny bit of weight too..maybe =). I feel happier with how my arms look as well. They look more cut i think. My current goals have been to not include carby foods like rice and pasta etc. with lunch (so big stirfries everyday for me) and to only eat salads after dinner. :)

My family and my boyfriend drove through laos where we stayed over night and then my boyfriend and i stayed with his family in Chiangmai (they live there) we stayed there for a little over a week and then drove back.

Do you know how to make uploaded ppictures come up smaller? Whenever i upload them they are so large xP.

Sounds great, that's a cool area of Thailand and so beautiful.
Normally I resize my photos online, I'm on my phone at the moment but I'll post the link to the site I use shortly. It automatically resizes to 50% smaller but you can change that it you want. Cheers MF.

Had a delicious smoothie today with a scoop of soy protein powder, spinach, a banana, and some soy milk with breakfast today :). Tomorrow i think ill have this with 1/4 cup of oatmeal instead of my usual 1/2 cup.

Had a good day. Good work out at gym :) my current work out is almost the same as a fitness model called Tamika Webber (she is on simply shredded). I really like how she looks and wanted to change up my workout so i took her work out and made some adjustments. For cardio i am currently doing 15 min on treadmill. 1 min warm up, 4 min jogging, 5 min HIIT, 5 min speed walking on incline. I keep switching it up so i don't get bored. I want to increase the time to 30 min and do the whole thing twice but i need to start doing better about getting to gym on time hehe. Also today i tried quinoa for the first time in a salad and YUM =) new salad food.
