7 Kilos

That's what I lost in 34 days, 7 kilos... SUCK IT! I'm awesome, I'm great, I'm still fat but I'm fabulous! And I'm going to keep going on until I lose it all! Everything.

Now seriously, I'm really proud of myself. You people who know me well know that I generally don't love my self enough, but this is a reason to! I've lost a lot of wieght eating healthy without starving. And there is really no secret, it's just the power of wanting to do it, if you really want to, you just do. I'm not going to tell my weight until I lose it all, don't worry, though most people don't actually believe that is my real weight, but yeah, it is. Anyway, I'm going to tell you what my diet is, the original diet that the doctor told me to do, but I kinda skip, because she gave me like 6 meals, and who is gonna eat 6 times a day? I eat 3, I eat a lot, I eat enough, I dont starve, and I'm losing a lot of weight quickly.

Breakfast [07:30]:
  • 01: 4 Slices of Bread (34-37 k/cal per slice)
  • 02: With one of these choices:
    02.1: 1/3 of a Cottage Cheese Vase (3% fat or less)
    02.2: 2 Slices of Turkey Breast
    02.3: 2 Spoons of Hummus
    02.4: 1 Boiled Egg (3 Times a Week max.)
  • 03: Salad, lots of salad, with:
    03.1: 1 Teaspoon of Olive Oil
    03.2: 1 Avocado
Snack at Work [10:30]:
  • 01: A Fruit (any)
  • 02: 1 Glass of Milk (1%)
2nd Snack [13:30]:

    02.2: 1,5 Cup of Pasta
    02.3: Baked Potato
    (All 3 done without oil)
  • 03.1: 120 grams of Lamb Steak
    03.2: A full chicken breast
    03.3: Fish
    (All done only with one spoon of oil)
3rd Snack [18:30]:
  • 01: A Fruit
  • 02: A Yoghurt (1.5% or less)
Dinner [21:00]:
  • 01: 4 Slices of Bread (34-37 k/cal per slice)
  • 02.1: 1/3 of a Cottage Cheese Vase (3% fat or less)
    02.2: 2 Slices of Turkey Breast
    02.3: 2 Spoons of Hummus
    02.4: White Cheese (5% fat or less)
  • 03: Salad (Without olive oil or any dressings)
And of course, there is the great iDDR, dancing a lot, I'm burning a lot of calories, and walking and jogging almost 5 days a week, more than one hour, this is how I lost 7 kilos, and by the way, I only do Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner, I skip the snacks, and I don't do them at the same hours, the diet still works!

Love you,

This is one of my most awaited films of the year, the adaptation to Maurice Sendak's childrens picture book, who is going to be directed by Spike Jonze.

I don't need to say anything, just watch the trailer, and you have a couple of posters.

Dance Dance Revolution and Stuffed Peppers

This weekend (again, for those Spanish folks that I always remind them that the Middle Eastern Weekend is Thursday-Saturday) Efi came over, and so far the weekend is a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot, a lot of fun! He brought me a gift (how cuuuuuute), and a very good one. Its the DDR (Dance Dance Revolution, which in here is iDDR -the "i" stands for Israel). I've been waiting for this for so long, and I'm very excited! Since it also helps a lot to lose calories (By the way people, I lost more than 6 kilos in 1 month! ^^), and it's a lot of fun, to dance, to jump, to lose calories, and to annoy the awful and disgusting neighbours. I think it will take me only a couple of days to convince my mom to dance in it too.

And aside from dancing, which makes me more hungry, today Mr. Efi made a very special dish that I love (he didn't make it for me though, it's for my mother, but I ate more than her), stuffed peppers! You probably are wondering (if there is anybody who is reading this anyway xD), you are arab, you created the stuffed food... Yes, it's true, but Efi makes it a totally different way with a waaaaay yummier stuffed rice, which is 1000 times more complicated to make but totally worth it.

Kudos to all people who helped to make a regular Friday, a great day: Efi, Dahood, Hasan, Mom & Dad

Confessions of a Shopaholic

I have a problem with shopping, and not the typical problem that generally people have, no, I don't buy things that I don't really need and I don't buy compulsivly. My problem is, that whenever I want to go clothes for myself, I never do... I could just go around all the shops in all the city, and I wouldn't find something that I like, just like that. I'm just unlucky. And whenever I just go out to the movies or something, without any purpose I end buying clothes for a lot (a lot) of money. What happened today, I finished work early, so I called my friend Dido, and told him if he wants to go shopping, he agreed. We went shopping, I didn't find anything, and him, who last week spent a fortune in clothes, again, found things to buy for himself in almost every shop we went in. He bought him self some (pink!) trousers, a shirt, a (very expensive) pair of shoes, and even food! And I, just didn't buy anything.

Who got fortunate? My mom. In the end, when I just gave up, I decided I will buy something nice for my mother, since I haven't bought her anything in a while. I decided that I will buy her pretty shoes, from the new spring-summer collection. I found very pretty shoes for her EVERYWHERE! I hate women clothes and shoes generally, they have soooo many varieties and choices to buy from. When men just have jeans and shirts, it sucks. Anyway, in the end I bought her very pretty, really pretty, shoes, and when I just was going to pay, I saw a very beautiful bag, my eyes were shining, and it was black, the same colour as the shoes, I couldn't resist, and I also bought her the bag...

One week earlier, she gave me a gift card that she got from her work, and mainly that's the reason I wanted to buy her something. Well, today I spent triple the money she gave, and didn't buy something for me, it's all her. Mom's, they are just precious.... Anyway, she really liked them, and her smile worths all the money in the world (but tomorrow we are going to change the shoes).

Jewish Holidays and My Colleague with the Motorcycle

Bless the Jewish Holidays, I just love them, there are more holidays than working days, I just found out that I'm going to get two 4-days weekends, this week, and the week after. I'm just so happy. The Jewish calendar has so many holidays that it makes me glad to live in this country among many reasons, but this is the most important one! The Holidays, Passover, 2nd Passover, Sukkot, 2nd Sukkot, Shavuot, Hannukah, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur, Yom HaAtsmaut... Keep them coming!

And other good news of the day, well, you remember that the thing that made me happier when I found my new job, is that colleage with his car that lived close to me, unfortunately, he resigned and he won't be taking me any longer to work, which is very sad... Until came Mustafa! Other colleague, and the best part is? He just bought a motorcycle! A NEW ONE! And guess what? He picks me from my door to the work! And guess what? It's a motorcycle! So I don't have to care about the traffic... I can wake up at 8:15 a.m.!

My Old School! Could it be more orgasmic?

'Slumdog' star boards Schnabel pic

Freida Pinto has joined the cast of Julian Schnabel’s “Miral.” Pic is an adaptation of Italo-Palestinian Rula Jebreal’s book about Hind Husseini, who founded an orphanage in Jerusalem in the wake of the 1948 partition of Palestine and the creation of the state of Israel.
