One Month of Intermittent Fasting…

2019-02-16 18.35.33

I started Intermittent fasting the evening of January 13th and it’s already been a month. I wanted to share how my first month of fasting went and what I have lost and learned.

My starting weight was 281.5 and today I am 278, which means I have lost 3.5 pounds in the last month. I also got off my birth control pill the same day I started fasting so I don’t know if maybe since my body is going through changes if its affecting the fasting too but we shall see. I am not planning on stopping fasting in a matter of fact I want to do this for as Long as I can. To be honest I’m also not so consistent with my hours. Theres days where I fast for 14 hours and days where I fast 16 and heck there’s days where I only last 12, 13 or 15 hours…it all depends. So maybe that’s why I’m also not losing as much weight as people tend to say they’re losing…who know.

(I am using the app called LIFE to monitor my hours of fasting)

One thing I have noticed is how less bloated I am and “lighter” I feel though which is amazing. I do get super bloated when I eat something heavy now though. The one thing I don’t like about fasting if how constipated I get from it…its annoying! But other than that it’s been amazing! I just need to be more consistent with my hours and maybe try to eat less during my eating window.

I’ll update again soon.

End of month Resolution Update!

I cannot believe today is already February 1st, how is that even possible??? Time is just flying by now…

Now that it’s a new month I wanted to share of how I’m doing on my new year resolutions.

  • One of my resolutions was to get healthier and exercise and I’m proud to say that I’ve been doing both. I mean I could be doing better but I am doing good. I’m doing intermittent fasting, exercising, and drinking more water.
  • As far as my OCD I’m also doing better, I try not to go to crazy on double or triple checking everything. Slowly but surely…
  • Honestly out of the 12 (I think) resolutions I made, those first two are really the only ones I have so far worked more so on. I’m trying to get better at the other things which were to read more books, be more confident/positive, cook more, practice photography, be more social and save money.

Hoping when I do an end of February resolution update, I’ll have more to list… fingers crossed!

How are you doing with your New Years resolutions???

Journey to a Better Me!

When we welcomed 2019, I got this weird feeling well not weird but great feeling that this was going to be my year. This year is going to be the year that I finally put myself first and work on becoming a better and healthier version of myself.

Two weeks ago exactly I started intermittent fasting in hopes of losing weight and getting healthy and honestly I have been loving it. I fast daily for about 14 to 16.5 hours meaning I do not eat or drink anything during that time frame except for water and black coffee. I can technically have black or green tea s well but I do not like my tea without sugar and honey so I rather stick to black coffee and water only. I have also started working out (this week more so than last week) and have lost a total of 4.5 pounds in two weeks.(WOOHOO)

I also got off my birth control two weeks ago today! I’m very curious to see how my body reacts this time around to it; last time I got off birth control to try and get pregnant, I gained almost 40 pounds within a year, broke out like insane and was so moody and tired all the time. Oh and I don’t get my period without my pill so we shall see about that too! I have heard intermittent fasting helps some women with their hormones and get pregnant as well so we shall see if it helps me with my crazy hormone imbalance.

I’m excited to share my journey with you guys!

Till next time….

2019 Goals!

“Make new year’s goals. The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.” – Warren McLaren

Happy New Year!!! I cannot believe that 2018 is over; it went by so so so quick. 2018 was an ok year for me, it wasn’t the best but it wasn’t the worst either; however, I am hoping to make 2019 my best year yet!

Every year I make new year resolutions and I never ever stick to it; well this year I really want to make goals rather than resolutions and I am going to try my hardest to stick to it and reach my goals.

Here are some of my goals for 2019:

  • Live a healthier lifestyle by drinking more water, exercising at least 3 to 4 times a week, and eating healthier.
  • Try to control and get rid of my OCD as much as possible; my OCD has gotten so bad in the last year with making sure everything is locked and that my alarms are on, etc. It is really really affecting me and I want to change it once and for all.m
  • Care less about what people think. I am so sensitive, emotional and such a people pleaser and I hate it…
  • Read at least one book a month, I have so many books that I have bought and haven’t read yet so my goal is to read more and hopefully blog about it.
  • Stop Procrastinating.
  • Practice photography and become more comfortable with manual setting rather than automatic.
  • Become more confident.
  • Be more positive.
  • Save more money and to stop spending on stuff that we don’t really need.
  • Cook and bake more (especially healthy options) and share here on the blog.
  • Be more in the moment especially with my husband; for example, putting our phones away at least for an hour or so and spending quality time together.
  • Be more active on social media and blogging by commenting on other’s posts and interacting with others more.

What are some of your goals for 2019???

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I hope you guys are having a wonderful time with whoever you’re spending time with or if you’re spending it alone, do something special just for yourself!

I wanted to share our very little tradition that my husband and I have for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day!

Usually Christmas Eve we go to my mother in laws house to spend time with them, open presents and eat tamales… yum!

Christmas Day we usually spend with my family! We open presents then usually my niece and I will decorate cookies together!

That’s really the only traditions we have, I’m hoping once we have our own family we can make more traditions!
