Have I told you about my Mid-Year Resolution? I figured I could make one and start a few changes in my life this June. Not everything starts on the first day of the year nor the first day of the week.

I’ve been thinking a lot this past couple of months about trying to lose weight and I’ve been really trying. The thing is, I’m not really losing any. I might have lost a few pounds on some of the days but I just gained it all back the following week. I guess what I really need to do is a lifestyle change. I know it’s gonna be hard, specially when you get invited to try really nice restaurants but I just have to embrace the change that I want if I want it to happen.

Also, I don’t just want to lose weight…I want to eat healthier — be healthy and be stronger at the same time. I got sick with  coughs and colds for three weeks last month. Yes, my immunity sucked. It’s time to make changes.

I have to let go of my bad eating habits and start a new one. I know this is probably the hundredth time I’ve said this but this time I’m working towards a goal: I want to be pregnant next year. It’s hard to do that when I have all this extra weight hanging around.

I pulled up a chair, made myself this Cherry Limeade and started thinking about the things that I would like to change.

My first step is to probably let go of fastfood and restaurant food and start eating more homecooked meals. That way, I know what goes into the food that we eat.This is gonna be super hard and I bet you’ll still see a lot of restaurant features in this blog but I’m hoping that I could lessen it. If ever I indulged, I’d probably balance it out the following day by eating whole foods.

I also want to practice portion control, something I’m really bad at because I have a tendency to always supersize everything.

There. First two changes I made this mid-year.

Oh, I also started injecting some 30-minute exercises in my day. This is sustainable, right?

  1. Gorgeous photos. I haven’t eaten out much for a long time. I did yesterday and it felt like a real celebration – something you don’t get when you eat out often. Plus, I really like my own cooking. 🙂

  2. I know what you mean!! I am also trying to lose weight but my hubby is always whipping up some delicious meals! Gahh so difficult!

  3. I’ve read somewhere that Lime juice can actually help you lose weight, the healthy way. 😛 What it does is it rids your body of toxins, gives you Vitamin C and helps you to suppress the munchies, perfect if you’re like me who loves junk food. 😛

    Ooh, getting pregnant can be tricky when it’s planned, it took us 2 years to conceive Lucas. 😛 Here’s to being preggy by next year! 🙂
