49 Days to Go!

It’s 49 days to go ’til the big day. There are still some minor and a couple of major things we have to accomplish. I’m still not too worried yet (I’m not sure when I would be), but there are some pressing matters that we have to attend to IMMEDIATELY.

On top of everything, I will have to intensify my training and if possible come into the gym 5-6 days a week from now. Weight training is still of primary importance to me, but I have to make sure that I am also doing lots and lots of cardio. The hardest thing is to eat clean. EATING CLEAN, during the holiday season is IMPOSSIBLE. I will have to try my best to filter out what I eat whenever we go out with friends too. I think I have to follow a strict “21-days to break a bad habit” approach on this one.

I think I also need to do yoga again. My sleeping pattern is weird again.

Please please please wish me luck.

Craving for Junk Food

This is one of the hardest habits to break. There are people who doesn’t like junk food at all (like R). Unfortunately, I’m one of the millions of people who occasionally crave for chocolates, chips, cookies, cupcakes, marshmallows, etc. etc.

I’ve kind of succeeded holding back a little on the sweets and the chips since I started with Camp Vitalé. The few times I caved in for those little suckers, I can’t shake off the guilt.

BUT. I turn into a little cookie monster when it’s the time of the month and I hate it! Even if I eat properly the whole day, I would crave for some additional nibbles.

How does one contain this anyway? I always end up feeling terrible during this period.

It starts with breaking the bad sleeping habit

I know that sleeping early is one of those things that goes hand in hand with being fit in general. This is one of the hardest things to do for me.

I am nocturnal. I function well at night. Or so I’ve been telling myself.

I have tried a lot of things to keep off the habit of  sleeping  very very late (or early in the morning in my case). Like weight loss, I keep on going back to a cycle — trying, failing, trying, failing.

The one thing that worked for me was yoga, a year ago. I was sleeping properly a month after I started yoga, probably because I am dead tired by the end of the day. I should probably go back to it and practice it more seriously.

I want to be one of those people who sleeps early, wakes up early and eat my breakfast. Because I wake up late all the time, I don’t get to eat breakfast and I know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

I am definitely a work in progress and there’s a lot of bad habit to break. And believe me, I am dead set on breaking all of them!
