I made a new fitness instagram account to keep me on track and also to be surrounded by people who are just as passionate, if not more, about fitness as I am. Follow me if you would like to be updated with my fitness journey/progress – what I eat – some exercises – random gym humor memes -and more 🙂

Mood: Restless but calm at the same time
Point to Ponder: I was planned for God’s pleasure.
Since I sent my laptop in, I have been laptop-less for quite awhile now and still am. no excuses though!
So this chapter talks about worship and how it is more than the customary belief that it is music for God. It is something that we should practice everyday in every moment. God loves it when we do actions that praise him and are for him.
Simple acts such as sleeping, eating, talking and walking should be done as though it is for Jesus Christ.
Something that I found interesting is that Rick Warren says that worship is not for our benefit. It is not part of our lives, it is our life.
Real worship is falling in love with Jesus – having a relationship with him.
The chapter asks what common task I can start doing as if it were directly for Jesus. Well…I know that I already like to speak to him constantly in my mind, especially when I am walking or before I go to sleep. I already do so even when I eat. But, I guess a new thing could be when I am baking, cooking, and cleaning.
Anyways, my dad is back and I noticed that I have been a lot happier. I no longer resort to food out of boredom and for comfort. The days don’t feel as blahh anymore. Still, I know that I hold a bit of anger in me that I am trying to let go of…
Psalm 149:4 – The Lord takes pleasure in his people.

Point to Ponder: This world is not my home.
2 Corinthians 4:18 – So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

1 Month of Insanity officially done; however, I see little results 😦 I just got muscle and my legs thinned out, but my face is still chubby and so is my neck sigh…so my roommate was like “hmm i don’t see much difference.” Cries* Losing motivation, but still going to do work and I guess try to lessen how much dried fruit I eat.
So I start Week 4 of Insanity 60-day challenge tomorrow and I was doing so great! I had lost 5 lbs and was feeling great, eating healthy, etc. and then suddenly one day I just lost it. I guess I didn’t eat as healthily as before or maybe it’s because I’ve been consuming more dried fruit (which doesn’t have added sugar mind you) but the next day I was up a few lbs! I found that so weird…it must be water weight I thought. However, I didn’t drink as much water as I did before…
And today, I just totally undid it by eating too much in 1 meal and then ending up eating a lot again in the other. I can’t believe I started binge-eating again! I have been snacking on dried fruit lately (weird because I used to not even like it). I know what I’m doing wrong though. I need to eat smaller, more frequent meals. I need to cut down on eating those dried fruits…moderation is key.
I need to snap out of this slump. I’ve been feeling really down and low in my self-esteem. I have been letting loose again. I can’t lose sight of my goal! I was doing so well and was feeling so great! I can’t believe that I’m letting all that hard work go to waste! I honestly don’t know how to go back though. I feel like I’m stuck as everything is piling up. I don’t want to starve obviously because that isn’t the way to go, but I feel disgusting right now as well. I will continue with the Insanity 60 day challenge though and try to eat cleaner and drink more water starting now.
Week 4 tomorrow huh? I can’t believe that I’m lasting this long and that I’m sticking with it! I hope that I really do reach that Insanity worthy body soon. I hope that I can stick with this and focus. I pray that I continue to not let myself down and not to feel so down anymore.
Best of luck to me! And I will update for sure after week 4 for a complete 1 month update.
Yes, this is the first time that I’m mentioning Insanity on my blog, but that’s because I wanted to make sure that I’m sticking with it before I write about it. I will try to do weekly updates now so that I can keep myself on track. Because I can feel my motivation faltering…
So today I start Day 1 of trying to update on what I eat and stuff. Although honestly, I doubt that I’m really going to keep up with these.
Now, I honestly am still so intrigued with the 80/10/10 raw vegan diet and really wish that I could do that and stick with it. Unfortunately, it is so tough while I’m in college and as a Korean who all my life have eaten cooked asian foods. So, I decided I’ll transition slowly. I’m going to try to make at least one of my daily meals be fully raw vegan. Today, I was successful. I had for breakfast a bunch of baby bell peppers, 2 plums, and a giant carrot. For lunch I had a concoction of protein powder and chia seeds.
For dinner though, I totally treated myself to Olive Garden. My friends and I went out today to watch Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 which was super cute~ I treated them all to dinner as well as myself and we ate a lot. Well, most of us hehe. It was yummy and not going to lie, the bill came out pretty high, but I guess it was worth it 🙂
I am still sooo full, but I really want mint oreos T^T How to stop such cravings…
