Ask me more!   Weight loss Progress   

My life - Losing weight, lots of exercising, trying to eat healthy, and to be happy. Other facts: 30yrs old, married, building a house. SW:227lbs (21.3.14), CW:219lbs (24.7.14), GW:190lbs (8.9.14), UGW:132lbs (20.6.15)


* cycling to work and home, total 20km, 1 hour

* spending evening at the house, building Ikea wardrobe, 3hours

— 22 hours ago

My posts have been pretty blunt lately, so here are some photos.
I’ve been putting together big wardrobes. And that work still continuous.
There you can see the house at the moment. It will be white in few days. Guys are just painting it white. So that’s the house we are building with my husband. Here where I live (in Finland), it is like the basic dream of everyone to build and live own house with yard. Ours is almost finished. We should be moving in 3 weeks.
Last photo is about my new screwdriver. It has magnet on the tip of it so it’s easier to build the wardrobes.
So that’s my life at the moment!

Day 5&6:
- building Ikea wardrobes at +40C (about 100F) in new house. Several hours…

We can’t even open any doors or windows at the moment because the construction guys are doing some outdoors work to the house and they have sealed all the doors and windows.

I counted that there is 48 days left before my birthday.
I’ll definitely make the all better than previous. So when my exercise count is on day 50 then is my birthday. That’s definitely challenge to keep.

-30min cycling, 10k
-15min cycling, 5k
-30min gym
-25min cycling, 9k
TOTAL: 1 hour 40 minutes

Then I was being spontaneous yesterday and I joined new DietBet game that started yesterday. So my weightloss is on full speed currently!
I started today with VLCD shakes, and I’m planning to have a few day kickstart with those before I move to salads and other normal low-cal food.

Day 2
-30 min cycling, 10k
-30 min cycling, 10k
TOTAL: 1h of cycling, distance 20k

Then I’ve been cleaning the apartment. It’s super warm here. Tonight it is impossible task to get the apartment cool, because night will be warm too. And because we live in the first floor, we can’t keep balcony door open… I’m too neurotic to be able to sleep with balcony door open when there is tiny tiny possibility that some stranger can climb in the apartment and steal stuff.
