I had a hard time coming up with a blog name, no matter what I came up with just didn’t sound catchy or good enough. I finally came up with one but then completely changed it to what it is now…Thoughts with Suz. And it’s exactly what it is, it’s my thoughts…obviously my blog is about my life blog along with lifestyle so it just made sense to name it that and I really like it! I blog about my struggles with my weight, about infertility, I share recipes, talk about life, my obsession with coffee, tea, and Disneyland and now my puppy! I hope you can follow me along this journey!
A while back I was kinda obsessed with Khloe Kardashian and got her book “Strong looks better naked,” and loved it. It inspired and motivated me to work out, work on my health, my body and to just put myself first. I remember I was on my fitness and healthy lifestyle journey for a good few months after reading that book and then I fell off the wagon. Since then I haven’t really picked up the book again, or maybe I did once after that but only read a few chapters only. I think I will pick it up again and reread it to see if it will again give me that motivation that inspiration to get myself back on track since I have been so off since this whole coronavirus started.
I have decided that I am just going to pause my 100 day fasting challenge for now. It’s such a stressful time right now and with me being extra extra busy at work I don’t get a chance to eat as I should do when I finally come home, I find myself stuffing my face with a ton of food and stuff before I start my fast for the night. I have been getting a ton of headaches too so not sure if it’s because I’m eating very little then a lot within an hour window that’s causing this or no. But for now while we are all dealing with this stressful stressful times and everything that’s going on in the world I will just stop and then continue when I feel ready and not so stressed.
Curious, how are you guys dealing with all this and trying to still lose or maintain your weight? Are you exercising? Dieting?
With everything going on I knew that I wouldn’t eat as healthy or as good as I would like so I decided to get back into intermittent fasting. I challenged myself to do a 100 day fasting challenge and to aim for 16/8. Today is day 11 and so far I’ve done good, there’s only been 2 days where I didn’t reach 16 hours and that is really ok. I did notice that 2 days that I didn’t reach 16 hours was because I ate past 7 pm the night before. For example last night my brothers girlfriend bought her new puppy to our house so I was distracted and played with the puppy for a while and by the time I got to eat it was closer to 7/7:30 so I didn’t finish eating till 8 pm so for it to be 16 hours I had to fast till noon today and that’s hard for me since I’m awake and working so early. I woke up this morning and was starving so bad so I waited it out for a bit took a shower and I was still hungry even after drinking water so I gave it and had breakfast so I only fasted for about 11.5 hours and really that’s ok! I’ll try better today by trying to finish eating by 6:30 or 7pm the latest tonight. I’m going to share my results here! I’m hoping this helps me shed a few pounds since I’m such a bad stress eater and like everyone else right now I’m under a lot of stress with what’s going on in the world. As far as exercise goes I’ve been trying to go on 2 long walks with my nanny kids a day and if we can’t then I have an elliptical at home that I’ll end up using after I’m off for about half an hour to an hour.
How are you handling the stress? Are you still keeping up with healthy eating and exercising?
A month ago I wrote my New Years resolution/goals for 2020 but then found a blog post where she talked about how she no longer makes new year goals but month to month so I decided that starting this month I will be setting new goals maybe even the same goal every single month. I wanted to share my February goals with you today.
Post 5 blog posts.
Lose at least 6 pounds, preferably 9.
Drink more water.
Be active everyday even if its a slow walk for 30 minutes…its something!
Happy November! It’s hard to believe that we only have two more left until we welcome in 2020! I wanted to take this month to do a blog challenge and for our day 1 its all about my blog…the meaning behind it and why I chose to do a blog.
As you can already see the name is Life thoughts and tea and the meaning of it is pretty simple actually, I wanted to blog about my life, my random thoughts all while sipping on a cup of tea or sometimes even coffee!
I love to write and I love to read books so I figured why not do create my own blog and write about it; so here I am doing just that and I hope you can follow me along this journey!
Hey guys – I wanted to take a second to share with you that my husband and I actually have our own podcast and we would love for you guys to check it out, subscribe, rate and leave us a review…it will help us out a ton! Thank you so much for your support!
Life with Coffee is the name of our podcast and you can find us anywhere that you listen to podcasts; just type in life with coffee and our picture should pop up 🙂 Thank you!
Even though I didn’t finish my challenge last time, I actually really enjoyed it and felt like it helped me in a lot of ways of making sure I read everyday and worked out as well; therefore I decided to do another one! This time I will be doing a 10 week challenge rather than a 6 week challenge!
My 10 week challenge starts today and ends on November 25th! This is what I’ll have to do everyday (minus the weekly photo) in order to complete my challenge:
• Workout everyday for at least 30 minutes.
• Drink a gallon or more of water.
• Read for 15 minutes or more daily.
• Write a blog post everyday!
• Intermittent fast. Minimum of 12 hours but aim for 16!
• Progress photo once a week along with measuring myself once a week.
I’m so excited, it has been about 3 weeks since I worked out but I’m ready to get back into it! I also want to eventually incorporate keto into my diet slowly!
