Hey Friends :)
So my grandma passed away yesterday...what an emotional time. Yesterday my eating went to the trash. I didn't really eat during the day but my dinner was BAD. VERY BAD.
Dukan no no's indeed.
But I didn't beat myself up about it. I just woke up and got back on track. I know my grandma would want me to be as healthy as possible.
I just got my 30 minute run in, which made me feel a lot better. But I have to remind myself to eat every few hours or else I just..don't. I'm just now eating breakfast...it's 1:50pm. Oy! No bueno.
I'm not giving up. I will reach my true weight and be the best me I can be.
This ones for you grandma! Love you! <3 <3

I am a goof ball. I am a bad dancer. I love dancing. I love cooking. I'm a bad chef sometimes. I never give up on love. I love fairy tales (and I still believe in happily ever afters). I sometimes hate working out. I sometimes love working out. I eat clean. I am very into natural remedies. I love my family. I love myself. I am an actress. I am a writer. I am a director. I love to color. I love pandas. I think laughter is addicting.
People try to label me. They try to judge me before they know me. Which is silly to me. But I respect that in them. I think the beautiful thing in life is to have your own opinions of each and every thing out there. To never stop questioning. To keep searching for your personal truth.
A good friend of mine posted a photo that said 'I'm not fat, I have fat' which was pretty cool...and made me think deeply of my weight loss journey. For a long time I was fat. In my mind at least. And it stuck to me, the fat was controlling more of my life than I would want it to, and that wasn't okay. But I allowed it to happen.
Then one day I had enough. And the fat was lost. And I realized that I wasn't the fat-it was just something that stuck to me due to my own insecurities. My own doubts about myself. It worked as a safety blanket that turned out not to be so safe. I was being suffocated. I had scary moments when I would just black out. Pass out in random places due to having too much weight on my body. And not to mention the emotional baggage I was carrying around. Oy!
It was a mask that I wore, and I was finally ready to take it off.
I guess that's why losing weight worked for me this time. The shackles that I had enslaved myself to had finally been broken. Never to be pieced back together.
Meditation has helped me a lot. Finding myself. Eating clean, and exercise really help with the energy levels, and I have learned that 'inner-cise' (the work one does on yourself aka meditation) is just as important.
We can do anything. If we are ready to.
We get to write our own stories. And just remember--if someone is speaking negative of you remind yourself that it ISNT you're story that they are telling. It is their own. It is just showing their own insecurities.
Remember-your story has nothing to do with anyone but yourself.
Just as their story has nothing to do with you. :)
"What people think of you is none of your business."
I'm finding out new things about myself each and every day and it's so thrilling to me! I'm falling in love with who I am and who I'm becoming.
Best. Love Story. Ever.
And she lived Happily Ever After. <3

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Hopefully with 2011 being over then the hacking of my account has come to an end!
BUT! I do have a new video post for you guys!
It is my top five reasons why you should give Dukan a chance and how life changing it can be! Just a heads up Reason #3 got all weird for some reason :( But mainly its talking about how time is going to go pass no matter what, and the main thing that you have to think about is how do you want to feel when that time passes? :) The video is posted at the way bottom of this! You can check out my other youtube videos at http://www.youtube.com/bcherryhealth If you would hit 'Like' if you liked watching that would be outstanding! :)
How have you all been? I found this new exercise routine that I love, but is really really challenging! It's call Pop Pilates and it is TOUGH! http://blogilates.com/
Check her out if you want to be pushed! At the same time it is so much fun! Her site is pretty awesome too, she has some great recipes *even if you aren't doing dukan, and there are a ton of recipes that can be dukanized* and her workouts are intense! There is also some great information on the site that you can walk away with! She's very into clean eating which I LOVE!
What are your goals for the new year? I want to get to a size 8 or 6...that was my goal for last year but we found out that my grandma has cancer, and life went on hold for a long period of time (that's also why I haven't had time to deal with the changing of my passwords and such. So much emotional issues!) Stress built up fast, and the last thing my body wanted to do was lose weight. I wasn't sleeping enough, I wasn't eating enough. And I was just put on pause for quite awhile. Which is interesting because I still stuck with dukan. Those are the foods that gave me comfort, and I think it was just in my mind to eat what I was now used to. Weird.
... Although sometimes french fries still mock me. Is it weird that I just want a celebration meal with only french fries? Clearly...I haven't gotten over all of my old temptations yet haha oh well!
So I reckon that's why I didn't reach that goal yet, I am currently at a size 10 though, so I'm pretty sure I'll reach that goal!
I have recently become kind of a health freak and am always wondering what companies are putting into things, chemical wise. Not just with food, but everything! From hair care, to skin care, etc. I just want to be an overall healthier person in my life and I find studying up on this stuff is quite interesting! *And sometimes gross...haha!*
I would love to hear from you guys and see how you all are doing! Have you started Dukan yet? Still thinking about it? How long have you been at it? What's your favorite workout? I'm always looking for cool new ways to mix up my workouts and such! Anywho! That's all for now!
