Just a quick post to document my progress thus far. I've kept up the running, but the gyms open now so I've been pushing myself hard on the rowing machine, and cardio area. I managed to fast for 2 days due to the 40 hour Famine (google if you don't know what that is).
Third week weigh in: 97.5lb
total weight lost: 1.5lb
At least I lost weight, and I didn't give into temptation. I'm on my way to being perfect.

I was doing really well. i was running twice a day (10 mins in the morning, 20 mins in the evening) I had restricted myself to at most 500cal a day (264 on Wednesday). I did 74 crunches in between ad breaks of TV shows. i was doing calf raises while brushing my teeth. I even attended a hot yoga class with my friend. Then I slipped. My dad doesn't approve of my 'dieting' and his way of dealing with it is to give me the most shittiest food for your body. he offered me a cream bun. You know, white bread, whipped cream, icing sugar, a little raspberry jam and a huge dump of chocolate sauce. GROSS! I felt pressured, he was standing there with it all laid out on a plate, and that stupid smirk on his face. SO I ate it. BIG FUCKING MISTAKE!
But the results are
Starting weight: 99lb
1st weigh in: 98.5lb
Current weight: 98.8lb
Weight lost: -.3lb
Oh well, better luck next week right?

So week one of the competition has gone past and I have definitely not done well. All though I have been munching on celery non stop, I haven't been to the gym. Fucking gym owners! Someone had an 'accident' due to faulty machines so the gym is shut for 2 weeks while they inspect all the other machines! FUCK! I just went for a run around the park across the road, but that isn't much of a run. It took me perhaps 10 minutes. Please give me exercises that I can do until the gym opens again.
I've eaten 1,675 calories so far this week, but I'm fairly certain other participants have eaten waaay less than that. I really have to step up my game if I want to win this. I've only lost one quarter of a kg! I don't have any assignments this week, so I can direct all of my focus on losing this weight.
LET'S FUCKING DO THIS!

Hey, so I'm still sick as fuck but in think this may come to my advantage. I've joined a weight loss competition that began on the 10th. Rules are simple whoever loses the most weight wins. It goes from 10th of may to 10th of June. So each week I'll update my progress and give you all the details. There are about twenty or so others who are taking part and you can follow their progress here (www.americaneaglelove-missionbeauty.blogspot.com/p/mayjune-competition.html ).
i plan on eating really small meals and exercising loads, and fasting at least once a week. God I want to win. I live outside the US so I won't be receiving the cash prize, but the satisfaction will be reward enough.
Cheer for me my lovelies!

Ugh, I am so sick at the moment. My throat is flemmy, my head hurts and no amount of panadol will take it away, plus my limbs ache. My mama took me to the doctor convinced I have the flu, but he said I don't and that it's just a harsh cold. So here i am wrapped up in a duvet, a sleeping bag and two blankets (one woolen and one fluffy) with a hot cup of lemon, honey and ginger. I'm just about to watch Get Him to the Greek on my dad's laptop, and then perhaps I'll watch the first season of the O.C., which my mama kindly got me from the DVD store. I haven't been eating much and am feeling kinda down, and stressed as I'm getting quite behind on school work. But once I've worked through this cold I can focus my attention on being perfect. But until then I'm gonna ask my mama to make me some Mee Goreng noodles. yum!
p.s here's some fun stretches for you to try out. Do each one for no less than 20 seconds. Enjoy!
