I am not talking about the movie. I am talking about a real Hunger Games.
I have to remind myself every single time that losing weight doesn’t mean starving yourself. But, there are times that I am so upset that I have not lost any pound in a week. Then again, I have to slap my face to be reminded that I have to change the term ‘losing weight’ to ‘eating healthy’
This month is supposed to be the last month of this diet thing. For the second month, I lost 3kg. I struggled more as I cut the carbs off during the weekdays (at least most of the weekdays) and less than a cup on weekends. I can’t completely cut it on my diet as I still crave for it from time to time.
And yes, on the first day of 2014, I ate more compared with the last days. (Not too much!) Uhm, I don’t call it a cheat day but I felt a little guilty. I did not overeat but still – I am guilty, your honor! (How was your year starting, btw?) So, I gained the 1kg back. (Sigh!) But, that’s fine. I’ll just extend this diet thing until the end of February. (Whew!)
The things that keep me going are smoothies (and fruits). I’ve learned that black tea and green tea are good for weight loss. Sometimes, I drink a cup or two in a day and there are times that I put a bag (I mean the powder only inside the bag!) of black tea or green tea in my smoothie. Yes! Yes! If others put protein powder, I put tea. 😀 I am not sure if they have the same effect when you drink it. The reason why I put it? It’s because I am just lazy to make a cup of tea. Also, this idea came from my sweet and lovely friend on Instagram, Maria Ro. (Click here if you want to check out my Intsagram account, too.)
This can be done with any combination of smoothie. And I also add oats to some of my smoothies.
This time, I just put Raspberries, Grapes and Strawberries, plus oats, black tea and non-fat milk. 😉 And yes, ice cubes.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week ahead!
