Getting Better At This..

By this I mean keeping a journal. I have entered consistently since the 26th of November. Every bite, nibble or sip has been entered into my book. I'm glad I'm doing this because I can look back later and say I did this the right way.

On other matters, I am beginning to understand why so many people insist on a low carb diet for weight loss. Just eating right this past month has made it possible for me to drop a few pounds. It hasn't been easy but the journal has helped keep me accountable.When I overdo it, I make up for it in the next meal. I feel lighter this days. 

Exercise has been really good. I've been alternating between skipping and the elliptical so that my body doesn't get too familiar with one exercise. I'm even considering going back to my twice a day challenge where I exercise in the mornings and evenings. Maybe intense in the morning and then light in the evening. What do you guys think? 

This morning, I had to use a scarf to tighten my workout shorts and prevent them from falling as I skipped. I must be doing something right, right? I really want to hit Onederland so I can get myself this.

Yes, I'm a  huge fan of Armani Code. It's a bit high-priced in Ghana so I plan on spoiling myself once I hit Onederland. Perhaps a picture will help me work harder and be more disciplined. I'm ashamed to say that I have been so close to seeing 199 on the scale more than once. I don't know if it is a psychological thing that makes me self-sabotage. No more! I will get there this time.


  1. I LOVE low carb. Allows me to eat as much protein, and veggies (except potatoes) That I want, and a lot of fruit (minus bananas). Being active is key to a healthy lifestyle, just make sure you take rest days. Listen to your body. Sore does not mean good. It could mean injury. Important to keep in mind. Good luck!

  2. It's always great to reward yourself when you hit a goal. Use it as motivation!! :)
