Gimeniux's: Take Six - A new Start Hey, remember me? I'm that girl who was getting back on track, who said she was going to make it, the one who was so close to her goal, who lost almost 13% of fat, almost 20 pounds of pure fat after a two year journey. Yes, that's me, but i'm also that girl who failed not once, not twice, but so many times i don't want to count anymore. And today i'm almost back to where i started, i haven't weight so much ever, 155lb (70kg), that's just 1lb away from being overweight. Although i have 26% of body fat, so i'm more muscle than fat, still, i'm totally off track. So without further due, here are my goals, new year, new goals, i can make it. GOAL 1 - Goodbye Facebook I suffer from depression, and Facebook is one of my triggers. I like to share stuff with friends and family, but mostly i get discourage when i spend so many hours looking at profiles, news, photos, and so. The worst part is i became a slave of the likes, and i don't want to be. I want to be happy because i am, not by how many people like my pictures, or my profile. So i have deleted my account, i don't know if it will be definetly or temporary, Facebook says i have 14 days to regret, if not they'll delete my complete account. I just make a backup to have all of my photos. It's all for my mental health. GOAL 2 - Hello 100% Paleo I love eating Paleo, because it gives me energy it doesn't make my stomach hurt, it also make wonders for my depression. When i eat clean i almost don't have any episodes. Lately i've been feeling pretty bad but that's accordingly with my bad eating habbits. I say 100% rule, because i don't do well with 80/20 it always ends up like 60/40 or 40/60. All or nothing for me, thanks. GOAL 3 - 10K i'm going to catch you! Last time i was 1K away from making it, now i'm starting my training program from cero. So first i'll do the 5K program, then catch up with the 10K. But i'll get there, i'm gonna get there. Side Quest - Salsa Lessons I love dancing, i've been taking clases, but i'm afraid i'm about to quit. I need a little push to continue, i want to make this my quest, attend to every class this month. And practice at least once apart from the class every week. MOTIVATION I've spent years looking to become the person that is within me. I want to know all of what I'm capable of. What my body could be. I donâ€™t like to hide. I want my outside strong and imposing, to cause inspiration for me, for everyone. I want to see myself and feel that the future is worth the while. I'm doing this to smile. Want to live without getting sick. Be healthy and proud. I've been close many times. This time I will not fail.
Gimeniux's: How do you mend a broken heart? Why am i here? I feel lost, once more, totally lost. I'm starting once more. I did great two challenges ago, last one not so great, actually a total failure. But here i am, because i promised i would not give up. I am here, because i need to take care of me. I'm battling depression, i just broke up with my boyfriend. I need to love myself, i come to realize this is the only way i'll be truly happy. So here i am, trying once more. Thank you in advance to those who decide to come along with me in this journey. My heart is broken you see, not just because i broke up with my boyfriend, i did that just to focuss on me, being in a relationship can drain energy from you, it's exhausting. I'm broken heart because i have let myself down, i need to be at peace with myself. GOAL 1 - No more Facebook I keep losing so much time and energy watching everyone else's lifes, but i neglect my own. I watch happy pictures from my friends and i feel a total failure, even i know that no one facebook truly reflects the happiness or sadness of their lifes. I need to concentrate in me, just me, nothing else matters now. GOAL 2 - Make a healthy choice everyday I don't want to make to many rules his time. Every time i do and fail i stop trying. I need to begin again, babysteps, each little step has to be taken as a win. GOAL 3 - Smile and love myself I'll set up a personal dairy. Everyday i'll write how i feel and one reason why i love myself. Also i'll smile to me everytime i see a mirror. Side Quest - How about some origami So i'm an origami lover. I made plans long time ago to develop my passion into a bussiness. It's not easy, specially with the depression kicking everytime, it's terribly hard to finish anything i try to start. So i'll go slowly, i want to make a goal to invest everyday at least 15 minutes to develop this passion. I wanted to say an hour, but that's a lot for the moment, 15 min will do get my motivation back. Thank you all out there who stop to read this, i've been overwhelmed with all your stories, i guess there is always a reason to keep going. I'll update regularly, promise. So i've been told
