intermittent fasting, weight loss

Failed Intermittent fasting…

Well I didn’t fail but I did slack off! I got so sick about 3 weeks ago, with a horrible ear and throat infection and bronchitis! I had to miss 3 days of work just because I was that sick and could barely talk! On top of that my sweet sweet grandma passed away that week! So I was on antibiotics for almost 10 days if not more so I had to eat to take my pills even though I barely ate since I couldn’t swollen anything let alone liquid and pills. But yeah I got off the track of fasting and exercising! So tonight I decided enough is enough I’m going back to fasting! I’m starting to feel bloated again, I’m starting to eat more and crave sugar like there’s no tomorrow. I just don’t like this feeling anymore and want to feel how I felt when I fasted for a month! I wasn’t doing the 16:8 method as I mentioned, so I’m just going to continue to do why I was doing which was mainly listening to my body. If I was starving and was getting light headed I would end up fast before my 14 (my everyday goal was to fast for 14 hours) but I have done 15, 16 and even one 18 hour fast! So I know I can do it but it’ll just be so hard this week trying to retrain my body! So wish me luck!!! I want to document my journey to getting back on track on here!

Blogmas Day 20: where I want to be in 5 years!

In 5 years I would love for my husband and I to be parents and to be homeowners! Those are the two things we really want! I would like for us to have a successful career that brings in lots of money! I will also love for us to be living a healthy lifestyle meaning eating better and exercising on a daily basis! I don’t really have anything else that I can think of…

It’s so hard to know what the future holds, but we can only dream right?

Blogmas day 7: Earliest childhood memory…

When i think of my childhood, I always think of how fun, amazing, and “free” it was. I grew up in Armenia and moved to LA when I was 9 years old! When I was in Armenia, I remember always playing outside with my brother and our neighbors literally all day long. We never had to worry about being kidnapped or anything crazy like that; our parents would either be at work or at home cooking and cleaning.

I remember we would play hide and seek with all the neighborhood kids all the time, and I would last hours sometimes. I remember being outside playing in the snow; making snow Angels, snow mans, having snow ball fights. We had a tire swing and I would always swing in it and I remember one time falling down from it really hard… ouch!

Things are so different now a days, parents cannot leave their kids alone with more than a second, kids rather play on iPads or watch TV than spent every hour playing. I sometimes wish life was how it use to be…

Blogmas Day 6: someone I miss…

There are two people who I miss so so much, my sweet angel of a grandma and my amazing uncle.

My grandma who is my dads mom went back to Armenia a few years ago and I haven’t seen her since. If I’m being honest she is my favorite favorite grandma! She was the one who knocked some sense into my dad when he wasn’t fully accepting of me dating a non Armenian. I am like her in so many ways and I spent days crying when she left to go back to Armenia because I knew that was the last day I was ever going to see her ever again in person!

The next person I really miss is my uncle who is my moms youngest and only brother, who sadly passed away last year. Till this day I still break down and cry when I think about it. He was only 49 when he passed away, and I wish we had more time with him. He was so funny and silly, and we all miss him so much!

Blogmas day 4: 5 things I cannot live without…

It’s crazy how we all have a few items that we cannot live without on a daily basis; so I wanted to take a second to share five items that I cannot see myself without daily…

  1. My phone – of course, isn’t this an obvious one?
  2. My contacts or glasses. I need to be able to see and since I don’t have the perfect vision I need either my contacts or my glasses.
  3. Face moisturizer- my face is so dry and I cannot go one day without it.
  4. Coffee! I’m addicted, if there’s a rare day that I don’t have coffee then I’m drinking a ton of tea to get the caffeine in me.
  5. My wedding and engagement ring- I feel so naked if I don’t have them on!

What are a few items that you have to have everyday???

Blogmas Day 3: important person in my life!

My husband is honestly the most important person in my life! He is the love of my life and my best friend! I don’t think there was ever a person in my life who I was so comfortable and open with as I am with him! I am so grateful and blessed that he is mine (even though I don’t always show it but I really should) I don’t know where I would be if he wasn’t in my life honestly! I love you baby ❤️
