As we are expecting visitors today, I baked one of my favorite cakes this morning: CHEESECAKE.

awesomeness in the making 😉

I am still wondering if I should try a little piece or not. I am only on day 6 of that stupid diet, which is increasingly driving me crazy!!

I noticed how living a non-carb life is changing me psychologically…not in a good way. I have so much stress going on because of the stupid job(which I HATE) and my annoying bachelor thesis. I am getting sick and I even had a nervous breakdown the other day because I feel I’m under too much pressure. This has never happened before and I’ve been under a lot of pressure in my life!!! I also miss my Finnish life and friends a lot. For this reason, I decided that maybe it is not good that I am so strict on myself at the moment. I am not completely giving up on the diet though! Just taking it a bit easier.

I also signed up for one (online) course this semester even though I already have enough credits. But I am very interested in that topic (principles of leadership) and I actually miss studying. I know. Nerd-Alert! Just got the schedule the other day:looks like I’m gonna be very busy during the next weeks.

Today I’m gonna give myself a little break! Going to Berlin with the family to see the (German) great-grandfather of comedy tonight. Booked the tickets over 6 months ago and I am so excited! Will tell you more about it tomorrow, I guess.


….and I’m still going on strong!

I noticed how much easier it is to control the hunger if you eat regularly. I have to eat 6 times a day now: Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner, dessert. That’s hard work! Sometimes I do skip meals because I am just too full…or disgusted by the food…like my dessert for example: sugar-free jello.

The last time I ate sugar-free jello was when I was living in the States. You could buy it in the stores and it was yummy. Unfortunately, I haven’t found stuff like that over here. For this reason, I bought this do-it-yourself-pack and just left the sugar out when I cooked it. I was soooo excited to eat it once it was done. I almost threw up though because it was so disgusting. I’m sure I’ll get used to it one day.(hopefully that day’s gonna come soon!!)

I had tuna salad for lunch today. I love it! Lettuce, broccoli, bell peppers, tuna & home-grown tomatoes. never knew eating healthy (and carb-free) can be that yummy!!

carb free tuna salad

The bad thing is that I still have a longing for sweet stuff sometimes and it is very hard to resist!!! I really hope those 2 weeks are over soon!! Because then I can at least eat fruit again…mmhhhmmmmm

A new chapter…day 1

I decided to change a few things in my life.

First off: I’m too fat and wanna lose weight. I’ve been planning that for years but somehow, it never really worked out. A few weeks ago, I read about the South Beach Diet. I tested it for a few days to find out if I could do it or not.

Phase one is so hard (no carbs at all for 2 full weeks)…but I think I can do it. So today was the official day 1 of my diet. I’m still in a good mood. Let’s see how long that’s gonna last…because I just love bread and rice and pasta and chocolate…and…( i better stop now before I start crying lol)

P.S. It’s gonna be a really awesome working at Mc Donalds seeing all those yummy things and stay strong. Oh man, what did I get myself into!?!?!?!
