Marry Christmas

Life hasn't turned out the way I wanted for the past 2 weeks. I have constantly been thinking about what I eat, though yet I haven't been able to actually stay on track and eat healthy. My diet has been full of Sugar and bad carbs. 
My body has been feeling sick, and my mood has been horrible. Yet I haven't been able to treat my body nicely and giving it the food it deserve. I look like a 5 month pregnant lady and feel like shit. 
I went on the scale to see how bad it was. Happily I only gained 1.1kg. 

I am sitting at Starbucks with a big frappucino trying to find my motivation. Ironic right?!

Thank god a new year will start soon.

Marry Christmas and Happy new year for everyone!!

Final status for my school project!

The 7 weeks are already over and it is time to make status on the project. As I was already in the progress of loosing weight then I honestly didn't change much. I kept doing what I already started, the Paleo lifestyle.

I made the goal to loss 3.6kg in 7 weeks, which would take me from 112.6kg to 109kg. It might not sound like a lot, but as I was already on the track of loosing weight I knew it wouldn't be going really fast. I still would have loved a better result but I DID LOSS 3.6kg. I hit my goal when it comes to the weight loss and that feels amazing. My total weight loss is now 6kg!

I also made a goal to walk 3 times a week and I was suppose to walk 30km a week by now. Let me be honest that didn't happen. It should have and I am kind of mad at myself for not doing it but the true is that the heat in Argentina is killing me! My body just can't work with 30 Celsius degrees.

The Paleo lifestyle definitely changed my life style, and I both feel better and look better :) Even though this school project has come to an end then my weight loss journey is still in the start phase.

This weekend will be a huge challenge. We are so lucky to have a visit from a German Girl who we meet in the state. I wont be able to follow Paleo for the next 3 days that together with Christmas coming up makes me a little scared. I have therefor made a pretty small goal for the last 19 days of December.

Next goal is to be 108 kg by the 31st of December.

Weight in

This week has been a mess!!

I haven't been able to get back on track, I keep finding an excuse to eat something unhealthy.
Friday we had dinner with Emilios parents, we had a huge barbecue with some cream mushroom potatoes. The potatoes was for 6 people and had 150g of BUTTER, 2dl of CREAM, mushrooms, onions and potatoes.. Not something healthy but it was soo good!!
Monday Emilio and I went out for lunch. I had a huge portion of delicious pasta with pesto, lots of bread and a cheese cake for dessert. It was good, but definitely not Paleo. For dinner Monday I decided to have sushi.. So yeah not a healthy day....

Looking back on the week I have to admit that I am more than happy with my 0.3kg loss!

Friday is the last day for my school project. So far I have lost 3.3kg during the project so I still have 0.3kg to go before I hit my goal.. Hopefully that will happen before Friday.

This week will be hard. A friend from Germany who Emilio and I meet in the US is coming to visit us.. We are so excited but I also know it will means some unhealthy food.

Bad week good weight in!

Food wise this has been a really bad week..! Thursday I had pizza and Sunday I had a HUGE ice cream. (If you ask Emilio he would tell you that my ice cream were small NOT TRUE.. Haha) Beside this two stupid meals, I did good the rest of the week.
My biggest issue is to be creative for all of the meals... In Denmark my lunch would normally be an open whole grain sandwich, which is so easy. But now with this diet, I need to figure out what to cook for both Lunch and Dinner!! It seems like we just keep eating the same 5 meals over and over again! Not that those meals are bad THEY ARE ACTUALLY REALLY GOOD!! But it gets boring.. I guess it is time to get some Paleo cooking books! :)

Christmas is coming up! In Denmark that includes tons of UNHEALTHY food.. I guess that is how it is all over the world actually, I just seems to like the danish Christmas treats more. I love Christmas and all of the traditions. This year will be different, as I will be in Argentina during the Christmas month. First of all the weather is different. I am use to snow or at least freaking cold weather! But now in Argentina it is freaking hot, we already have more than 30 degrees a day.. It is HORRIBLE!!!! Another very different tradition is the food. I am use to my duck, pork, caramelized potatoes, gravy and a delicious rice, cream almond dessert. This will all have to wait for next year, though I am planning on making a small danish Christmas dinner for Emilio and I for the 23th of December.. It is a hard time of the year, as I am missing my family as hell!! But I will try and enjoy it because next year Emilio and I will be together in Denmark celebrating Christmas..  

The scale showed a 0.5kg loss since last week which is perfect.
