Year 1 Day 104 (Day 469)

Today is a new day, which is very encouraging. Last night I ate a little more than I had hoped but not a crazy amount, it was about 300 extra calories. So I am proud of myself that I limited myself to just those 300 extra calories instead of a lot more.

I just finished day 2 and only 28 days to go. And man, those squats and lunges are killer. Walking up and down the stairs are the worst, but it hurts so good. If I keep this up, my butt will rock ;) Plus hopefully I will have lost at least 1 inch in my hips and thighs by the end of the month. Today I did up it a little though, used the Wii remote controls as weights today instead of nothing. So it's a start, and I'm hoping by the end of this I will be able to use some 3-5 pounds weights. Also today I worked a little harder, currently I am unable to do jumping jacks so during that part yesterday I did modified jumping jacks. Well those don't really work up a sweat, so instead today I jogged. Doing that definitely worked up a sweat and I'm sure it burned more calories than my modified jumping jacks.

So today my fiance asked me a question and he was shocked that I wouldn't answer it. I felt bad not answering him but he asked me what my weight is. This isn't the first time he has asked a question like this, but he has never asked the exact number. In the past he has asked what my measurements are, because his family is making me a traditional Pakistani dress, which is so sweet. So he knows what my measurements are but today he said he was just curious on what I weigh. I know that it won't matter to him what the number is, he told me how much he weighs too, but it's different for me. My fiance is at the very bottom of the healthy weight range for his height, actually he's trying to gain some weight, but that's beside the point. He and I both do struggle with our weight, for different reasons. Honestly it's sort of funny, he always tells me how slim he is       and that's one of the things that attracted me to him. I have always been attracted to men who are slimmer and I don't think that he understands that, no matter how many times I tell him. Believe me, I don't think he could get much more attractive (so I thought I'd include a picture of him). Yes he is slim but I think he's gorgeous, plus he's so silly, which I love about him. :)

It's been quite tough for me this week when it comes to my eating. We don't have a lot of food options in the house right now, so I've had to have pizza for lunch yesterday and today. It all fits into my calorie goals but it's just frustrating because I really want to eat cleaner. I don't know how that will be possible if we don't have much food in the house, and what we do have is mostly processed. It's really difficult because I need to make sure that I eat enough calories throughout the day (about 2100-2200/day) Hopefully this next week we will have some healthier options available in the house. One thing that I really don't want to do is mess up on my eating, especially while doing the 30DS because bad eating will only take away from my results.

I suppose, it's time to get a few things done around the house before I have to start dinner for the family. So until next time.



  1. Bad nights happen. I was in a major snacking mood last night and had to just go to bed.

    With regards to your fiancé asking about weight, I'm not really sure. I think weight is so different between men and women. Guys seem to care less about their own weight number where as girls, no matter their size, I think tend to worry or focus on it more. He loves you though and nice to know he doesn't care and would live you at any size. You've hot a keeper :)

  2. Oops autocorrect...would LOVE you at any size and you've GOT a keeper :)

  3. I would not tell anyone my weight not even my bf of 3 years. I don't blame you at all. Maybe try explaining to him that its a difficult topic for you and that it isn't personal you just don't want anyone to know.

  4. Thanks ladies. I did explain to him that I don't like people knowing my weight, and he dropped it after that.

    I definitely have a keeper. He's pretty amazing :)
