i know… but i still wish everyone would like me.
I’m about to start my last year of college today, and I’m taking classes at a different school this semester. So I have to 1) travel to a different school, I don’t know where that school is (ofcourse I have google maps, but I’ve never been there before), 2) work together with different teachers AND students (we’re gonna work closely together and I’m extremely nervous they’re not gonna like me) and 3) I have to prepare a presentation about myself, which is causing me a lot of anxiety because what if I have a long or short presentation compared to the others, what if I make a fool out of myself, what if I’m the only one with a powerpoint, what if I’m the only one without a powerpoint…..
I hope that writing this off me and preparing will help. Wish me luck!
Day 5 - Please answer the following questions:
Tell us about your support structure. Who are your champions?
The support structure around me is really great. My parents are loving and supporting me to get healthy, although they couldn’t care less if I weighed 200 or 130 lbs. My sister is trying to get healthier herself too, and it’s great to work out with her. One of my work out buddies is also a very good friend, and another friend I sometimes eat dinner with we try to make healthy choices. Another very important person is my trainer at the gym. We have a good bond and he helps me with my food and work out routine.
My champion is my mom. She is always positive and helps me through things a lot.
How can you use these champions to help you be a success?
A thing I can do is talk to my mother about my struggles, so that she can motivate me to think positive. I already do that sometimes and it really helps.
Tell us about any people or things that make losing weight challenging for you.
I have to say that is also my mom, because she is eating very differently then me. She is trying to gain weight instead of lose it so she makes different choices. Other people are people like my friends, when we get together there is also yummy food involved, haha, and we always cook or bake together. :)
How do you plan to overcome challenges in this area?
When it comes to my friends: we don’t really get together often as a group, so when we do, I’m just gonna eat the yummy food and then try to eat healthy again first thing next day. Another option is to eat the unhealthy food with my friends in moderation, or make sure there are also healthy snacks.
I don’t think the issue with my mom eating differently is gonna be a big thing, I can overcome this by making sure I eat a lot of healthy snacks and drink water if I want to eat the unhealthy food that’s in the house.
in case you were having a bad day, here’s a picture of Yo-Yo Ma, the famous cellist, on the floor of a bathroom with a wombat
Bohemian Rhapsody is no one’s favorite song, but also everyone’s favorite song. Like, when someone asks what your favorite song is you never say Bohemian Rhapsody but when it starts playing on the radio I am pretty sure you crank it up and belt out every single lyric and you don’t even care you’re so proud.
Day 4 - Please answer the following questions. (Try not to focus only on a number on the scale but also what other changes you want to see / feel.)
What do you hope to get out of this 90 day challenge?
First of all I hope my blog gets more personal because I like personal blogs a lot and I want my blog to be personal, too. So I hope this challenge makes sure I post something personal everyday (which I am already failing in, haha). Also I’d like to find some new blogs and buddies on Tumblr that I can have conversation with. Last but not least I hope this challenge motivates me to lose weight, and makes me think about my motives, why I want this, and why I have certain habits.
What does short term (this 90 days) and long term success look like for you?
Short term success for me looks like losing bad habits and gaining good ones, and start making changes. Like when I reaaaaaally want to over-eat but I make the decision to do something else instead. Another short term goal is to start a good work out routine for me.
Long term goals are goals like reaching my goal weight, a better work out routine, no over eating tendencies anymore.
If you have an ultimate goal weight, what is it?
My ultimate goal weight is 63-65 kg, which is 138-143 lbs.
Is it in the healthy range for your height?
I am 167 cm or 5’5”, so that is in the healthy range :)
How do you feel about this goal?
I feel like it is very far away right now, but I can reach it. Maybe in a year, maybe two or three years. But losing weight or reaching a certain goal weight is not the most important thing for me anymore. Two years ago I almost reached this goal, but I was in a different place then, I don’t love myself like I do now.
Dang, it’s real pretty here 👋 oh and good mornin’ from my roof top tent
