60 day challenge – Dias 1, 2, 3 e 4

O desafio consiste em 60 dias de dieta e treino para perda de peso e melhora estética.

Ele é composto por treino e dieta, sendo o treino feito de segunda a sexta, e a dieta a todo tempo. A alimentação deve ser low carb, sem gluten, com foco em gordura e proteínas, bem como vitaminas em geral.

Dia 1

Treino: Foi realizado treino de membros inferiores, nem todos os exercícios foram executados devido ao ligamento rompido, às vezes o joelho dói e tenho medo de seguir forçando para futuramente ter novas lesões. Gostaria de correr, mas devido ainda ao joelho, não posso, portanto sigo no elíptico, que me permite movimentos tem mudança de direção. A musculação é uma parte complicada, pois não posso colocar muita carga, mesmo assim, tento ouvir meu corpo e ver até onde o joelho vai sem dor, se eu iniciar o movimento corretamente, ele suporta maior carga. Treino sem joelheira, o que não é bom.

Alimentação: É a parte mais difícil, pois minha ansiedade me faz descontar tudo na comida, e depois de passar as festas comendo e bebendo livremente, fazer restrições se torna algo contraditório para mim, de alguma forma não consigo enxergar os resultados que posso ter. Tenho tido dificuldades para reduzir os carboidratos, bem como o açúcar, decidi que irei permitir açúcar durante a tpm, sendo algo fundamental para aliviar o estresse no meu caso.

Dia 2

Treino: Treino de membros superiores, o mais tedioso, não consigo forçar a carga nos exercícios de ombros e bíceps, o que não é bom, já que nesta parte não tenho restrições e posso livremente forçar carga.

Alimentação: Continuo inchada, não vejo diferença no meu corpo até então, tem sido difícil remover carboidratos, mas tenho tentado recorrer a ovos e carnes.

Dia 3

Treino: Novamente membros inferiores, foi provavelmente o dia que menos rendeu, estava completamente sem vontade de treinar e pulei um dos exercícios, não consegui aumentar carga. Acordei mais cedo nesse dia, achei que seria mais dinâmico, mas não foi.

Alimentação: O dia em que mais quebrei as regras, ingeri muito carboidrato, não conseguia parar de comer, me dei conta então de que estava ansiosa e descontando tudo na comida, isso na verdade já vinha acontecendo desde o início da semana, mas percebi apenas no terceiro dia.

Dia 4

Treino: Não treinei nesse dia, acordei às 11h e passei o dia praticamente inativa, a ansiedade foi mais forte e foi um dia em que me senti completamente desmotivada.

Alimentação: Menos descontrolada que o dia anterior, eu ainda senti bastante ansiedade, mas consegui segurar em alguns momentos, ainda está sendo quase impossível reduzir os carboidratos, nesse dia não tomei café da manhã.

 

Me sinto um fracasso nessa primeira semana, pois não tenho levado a sério o desafio, por isso mesmo decidi criar este blog para acompanhar, para que, de alguma forma, eu comece a encarar essa jornada com um pouco mais de determinação.

Instinto

Nós, seres humanos, temos instintos muitas vezes imediatistas. Sempre que algo nos sacode de alguma forma, seja uma perda, um término, uma decepção ou uma mudança brusca, temos a tendência a tomar medidas imediatas pra solucionar qualquer sentimento ou sensação que estiver nos incomodando. Achamos que precisamos sair do lugar naquele momento, estamos cansados de pensar, refletir e considerar tantas coisas.

A questão é que não percebemos que o imediatismo nos leva a uma agitação maior ainda, além de não organizar a nossa bagunça, nos faz agregar uma nova à anterior, aumentando a sensação de desorientação, nos deixando cada vez mais perdidos. Tudo isso ocorre por algo simples: Ninguém gosta de sentir coisas ruins como tristeza, decepção, raiva ou angústia, sendo assim, queremos dar um jeito de nos obrigar a parar de sentir tudo isso imediatamente, nos envolvemos então em um estado de inquietude, nos cobrando uma postura pra agora, nos fazendo perder a calma em busca de uma solução.

O problema dessa teoria é que ela quase sempre não funciona. Se já estamos uma bagunça, obviamente precisamos de calma, se já estamos perdidos, obviamente precisamos nos encontrar. No entanto, a jornada para o autoconhecimento não é fabricada, ela acontece assim que aprendemos a permitir que ela se inicie. Se estamos de repente estamos sozinhos, a resposta nem sempre é encontrar outra pessoa, se perdemos alguém que amamos, a resposta nem sempre é tentar não sentir falta, se perdemos algo que tinha grande importância para nós, a resposta nem sempre é imediatamente tentar conseguir outra coisa para tomar seu lugar.

Coisas e pessoas vêm e vão por algum motivo, mas elas podem ocupar um vazio, ou apenas ser um anexo em nossas vidas, e a partir daqui já não me refiro aos parentes que se vão deste plano. A partir daqui me refiro à nossa incapacidade de adaptação às mudanças, já que sempre que algo vai, em vez de fecharmos aquele vazio, procuramos preenchê-lo com outra coisa. Veja, talvez seja melhor em vez de agir, ficar em espera, meditar sobre o que aconteceu, entender o que sente, se perdoar, perdoar o outro e fazer as pazes com o ocorrido, talvez depois disso seja possível refletir com mais clareza, talvez depois disso seja possível saber exatamente qual atitude tomar para seguir em frente.

Em vez de tentar mudar o que sente, abrace isso, entenda-se, ‘conhece-te a ti mesmo’, como disse Sócrates. Muitas vezes não sabemos lidar com as decepções porque pulamos a parte em que deveríamos entender o que sentimos, quando resolvemos mergulhar na próxima história.

Não procure o próximo passo, deixe ele vir até você.

Distrações

Todos os nossos dias são corridos, não importa o que façamos, sempre parece que o dia deveria ter ao menos 30 horas. O que é um pouco bizarro nos dias que não surgem tantas coisas para resolver, deveriam ser dias calmos, demorados, mas não são. Talvez a gente não se dê conta exatamente do tempo, ele é bem relativo, quando estamos numa tarefa legal, ele voa, quando é algo chato, ele se arrasta lentamente.

A questão é que de uma forma ou de outra, estamos sempre fazendo algo, seja útil ou não. Espera, algo não útil? Como pode? Com tantas coisas que tenho para fazer, como eu iria conseguir ocupar algum tempo com coisas inúteis? Impossível.

Não, na verdade é bem possível, quase que tradicional, no dia-a-dia de qualquer pessoa. Quanto tempo passamos relembrando coisas que não temos como resolver? Quanto tempo passamos rolando a Timeline de redes sociais sem nenhum objetivo específico? Quanto tempo passamos em uma conversa que não passa de um bate-papo? Calma, não estou aqui pregando que devemos eliminar todas essas práticas, mas concorda comigo que existe um limite?

Nossas vidas passam com distrações, coisas que passamos uma ou duas horas do dia fazendo para absolutamente nada, por absolutamente nada. As distrações geralmente levam tempo e nada dão em troca, e a desculpa mais usada para se mergulhar nela é: trabalhei/estudei muito hoje, preciso de um descanso, eu posso me dar esse presente.

Sim, você precisa descansar, mas não incontrolavelmente, muitos deixam de terminar coisas, aprender outras e atingir níveis maiores por estarem extremamente distraídos. Precisamos urgentemente aprender a controlar nosso tempo, a identificar quando uma distração está nos impedindo de atingir algo maior, já que nós somos os responsáveis por tudo o que acontece, tudo o que melhora.

All I have

This week I had a moment of learning that I had to share here. Okay, so, to situate you I need to tell about this guy I met in high school (I’m graduated in college now, Civil Engineering) who went to college with me, only he graduated in Electric Engineering. We hooked up for a few years, nothing serious, he never wanted, so you imagine how many times I had my heart broken with that one.

♥♥♥

After graduation he left to another state and we didn’t end up well, ’cause he just left with no goodbye and I ended up hurt again, to I decided it was over, no more of him, enough, he didn’t treat me so well… While that I started having a crush on this other guy, he was like an angel, so polite, so nice. So I looked him up on instagram and started contact, in person he would be so nice, he asked me about my life and everything, but online, in messages he wouldn’t even answer, just ignored me several times.

♥♥♥

So this one time I sent him another message and he took 2 days to log in and see, after that I sent another apologizing for disturbing him and guess what: nothing, like I was nobody, not even a single ‘sorry I gess you misunderstood me, I only like you as a friend’. A week later after dreaming twice about the guy who left to another state I had to get in touch as a favor to a friend, to get information on internship.

♥♥♥

He was the same, treating me so well, always replying my messages, worried if I was fine, if I was working… You see, I don’t mean he’s my soulmate or anything, I don’t even expect us to be together. What I mean is sometimes we’ll find people that care about us, but only ’cause they don’t spend the whole day telling us that, we tend to not see how much they care, while others we find seem to be so nice, angels, and deep inside you find out they never even cared about you.

♥♥♥

There’s no such thing as perfect or soulmate or ‘compatible’, life happens in the most crazy ways, is just happens. I realized how much I didn’t value the times he said he was happy for me, the times he read every message I sent saying how much I hated him and still would welcome me with kindness everytime I needed him. You see, I thought he didn’t value me, I was wrong. And I’m only happy it’s not too late. After feeling so down, another heartbreak, he was there to lift me up. We’re fine, we’re friends, and I’ll never let him go again, I need people like him.

Down days

This one was, no doubt, a very hard week. Last saturday my dog had a surgery and I spent the past 5 days barely sleeping, worried sick with him. So today, after 5 days of exhaustion, I had to take him back to the Vet, ’cause the spot of the incision was a little infected, he’s fine btw, getting better, slowly.

Besides that I had a work meeting – I work with interior designs – and I couldn’t stop for a second to relax, I didn’t want to relax, on the top of all that, there’s this guy, of course, a guy. I could easily say I love him, but unfortunately he doesn’t feel the same about me, I should be already over him but it’s kind of impossible for now… I’ll get there, eventually. So all that, the exhaustion, the concern with my dog, the meeting, the guy, the feeling of desperation for not being able to be with the one person I truly like, that took me down today, pretty hard.

‘Cau I’m too old to be a drama queen, I can’t show anything, I have to smile and if someone notices I’m kinda down, I just say ‘a little tired, it’s friday after all’ and pretend that’s the truth. So at night, after finally finishing all I had to do, I had to go to a store, to get a new blanket for myself and while waiting to pay for it and leave, I saw a woman with two kids and both of them were so excited to me shopping on a friday night, excited to have something different to do. That reminded me of my childhood, we only have school, no worries about anything else, and things like going shopping seem so interesting…

There I was, tired, crazy to leave the store and done, so done, with this day, this week and I reminded that me from 15 years ago would be so happy to be there. When did life become so not funny? When did we stop our lives at any problem? I swear, I barely did what I had to do today, so sad, so upset for the dog, the guy, the time I couldn’t sleep. Yeah, I know we all have our ‘down days’, and I’m happy to know tomorrow is another day, and it will pass. But for now I don’t wanna be like this, I’m sad, I’m hurt and I don’t wanna be.

Changes

People talk about changes all the time. If you’re not happy, change, if you want to be a better person, change.  What people don’t talk about, is how hard it is to change, they make it look so easy and we frustrate ourselves ’cause it feels like we’re so beneath everybody else that we can’t even change our lives.

Wait, changing a life is hard and it is to everyone! If you strugle to be a better person, you’re just human and not even for a second beneath anyone. And who said it should be easy? Who said we could stop doing something we don’t even notice we do in a heartbeat?

That’s what we see today, people believing they’re bad ’cause they’re human. So here’s my proposal: Change, there’s nothing wrong about it, but change slowly, be patient, forgive yourself and believe that today you’re better than yesterday, and tomorrow you’ll be better than today. Be kind to yourself, the world is already filled with bad feelings.

Resilience

Recently I’ve read about resilience, it’s true meaning, and I stopped to think deeply and ask myself this question: Am I a resilient person? Reading about the chacteristics of a resilient person I realized I’m not.

If you google ‘resilience’, you’ll find this: “The capacity to recover quickly from difficulties; toughness.” but it’s more than that, and opening other links about self knowledge I found other infos about it. It’s not enough to just go through the difficulties, anyone can do that, we suffer, we cry, then we recover, that’s not sheer resilience.

I’ve read about the qualities of a resilient person and it talks about optimism, patience and calm, someone that focus on the solution from the begining. Basicly it takes being aware of the fact that one cannot waste time worrying, it takes facing the problems from their very first minute with optimism. Reading about it made me remember everytime I snaped over a problem, everytime I cried and freaked out instead of thinking about solutions.

I started questioning myself about it, why am I like this? Why do I get stressed with the littlest problem? Resilience, I need it, we all do… Sometimes we feel like such warriors ’cause we’ve been through so much, but have you ever stopped to observe yourself, or your acts? Have you ever tried to understand them and maybe change what needs to be changed?

Known as self knowledge, this attribute can help you with relationships on the outside. Experts on the matter say that in order to make good connections we need to know ouselves and the resilience is a quality that tends to make a whole life much easier.
So I dare you to question yourself about it, to discover who you are, change what you want to change, and embrace and love what is part of you, good or bad.

Where am I going?

Sometimes I hear a sad story here and there, and I feel like I don’t have such big problems after all, I get thankful for about 10 minutes, but lately I found myself sad most of the time. Before you think I’m depressed, easy there, I’m not… Yet. I don’t mean I intend to be, but I have to be careful.

Still I didn’t get to the point, depressed or not, I wasn’t seeing myself, so many of my posts talk about the way we should see ouselves and how we should doubt people when they try to convice us of what they think, but still, I wasn’t seeing myself. Dangerous behaviour ’cause you forget who you are, what you can do best, why you’re here… I saw myself in this situation: feeling forgotten, hopeless and pointless. See, there’s something weird happening to me this year, I’m losing friends, they’re very much alive, but away, some in heart, some in body (and heart to). You may think I pushed them away, but no, seriously, I didn’t, they just decided to change and somehow our resemblances were gone, we know each other, but we’re no longer friends.

It took me long time to understand I was stuck there, in the past with my old friends, everybody else was moving on, everybody else was growing and improving. Yesterday I told myself: ‘you know what? I don’t have to take this, I need to get up, move, leave my comfort zone, make new friends, worry less, study more, enjoy more, make my own life with what I want, what I think is best.’

So here I am, fighting that negativity, leaving behind who I was stuck, reminding myself that despite the loneliness, I am more, I can do more. If there is nothing else, leave, somewhere else ther’s something for you to do, someone for you to know. I need to remember how intelligent I am, how strong I am, how fast and centered can be, how I can handle any situation, how I can work harder and evolve everytime I push myself. You need to remember you’re not in the same place that you were 10 years ago, so even if it takes a long time, you can move, you have to move, I know I will very soon. Where am I going? Wherever I want, starting today.

Filter

We are human beings, we tend to have different personalities, different opinions and different perspectives, therefore, we’re never going to agree 100% to anybody at all. Still we’re used to show and recieve opinions as advices, but why do we rely so much on these advices?

I’m only 26 years old in this 4,5 billion years old planet, but lately I’ve noticed people don’t seem to want to get to know themselves anymore, they’re running around blind, not knowing if what they’re doing is right, if it’s gonna work, taken by insecurity.

This insecurity takes away our filter, that one thing that makes us question if that person is right about us. So you torture yourself ’cause somebody said you’re wrong in some situation, but you don’t even know yourself enough to know for sure it’s true. Understand some of our closest friends don’t know ourselves that well.

Careful with what you let people believe in, maybe you’re not what they say you are, and all you have to do is this: Get to know yourself and don’t worry about appearances.

Surprises

So here I am, 2 months in after the graduation day. I’ve thought about so many different ways to go, even having this big dream for my life, there are these different ways to get there. After graduation the fear comes along, fear of not getting a job, of nor being able to do what you’ve studied 5 years for.

At last your fears are gone, you start on something, you get a job or you just start on your own, the last one being my situation right now. And then you start thinking about how blessed you are, yes, you made it, but also, somethings that led you to that job happened without your control, it makes you think about the ‘what if’s’ and get surprised with the many good things that happen.

After understanding that, you get more thankful for the good things that happen and start believing more in yourself, you think ‘hey, my hard work is paying off, ’cause good things are happening to me’. Those moments push us forward, to keep going, to not give up.

So if you’re stuck in some fase of your life, don’t worry, it means you just have to stop, think and plan, and of course, believe it’s just a fase, life can still surprise you.

Good luck! XX
