My goals

Ćao svima!

Danas ću da vam predstavim neke od mojih ciljeva. Pisala sam već da volim sebi da zadajem neke ciljeve koji su ostvarljiviji. To sam i uradila. Ali, imam i neke ciljeve koji su mi konačni ciljevi tj stvari koje bih jednom volela da radim i kakva zapravo želim da budem.
Moji bliži, ostvarljiviji ciljevi su da imam manje od 70kg, da krenem da trčim i da pijem manje Koka-Kole.
Za prvi cilj mislim da neće biti nikakvih problema, dokle god idem dalje sa ovom dijetom. Ni Koka-Kola nije preveliki problem. Jesam, pila sam je previše, ali u poslednjih deset dana sam je mnogo smanjila, popila sam možda jednu čašu za deset dana. Trčanje je jedan od problema, jer ne mogu da pronađem vremena i za to, pored škole, časova gitare, glume i ostalih aktivnosti. Mislim da bi bilo savršeno kada bih ranije odlazila u krevet, s tim se i ranije budila i odmah ujutru odlazila na trčanje koje bi trajalo za početak dvadesetak minuta. To mi je najveći izazov i ne znam ni kada ću početi sa trčanjem, ali to je deo mojih bližih, ostvarljivijih ciljeva.
U one dalje ciljeve, teže za ostvarivanje i one ka kojima težim spada to da želim da imam 60kg, da budem redovan član teretane i da se hranim zdravije.
Na 60kg neću moći da dođem do završetka dijete, prosto nije moguće da smršam toliko za manje od dva meseca. Ali ako nastavim zdravo da se hranim posle dijete i da posećujem teretanu to bih mogla da ostvarim. Tako da ovi ciljevi zajedno funkcionišu tj ne mogu da ostvarim jedan bez drugog i to bi mi postao način života, tako da ka tome težim najviše od svega.
Pozdrav za sve! :)

Hey everyone,

Today I’m going to present to you some of my goals. I’ve already written about how I like to set myself goals that are more achievable. That’s what I did. But, I also have some end goals, that is, things I would like to do in the future, and who I actually want to be.

My closer, more achievable goals are to weigh less than 70kg, to start running, and to drink less Coca-Cola.

For the first goal, I don’t think there will be any problems, as long as I continue with this diet. Coca-Cola is also not that big of a problem. I did drink it too much, but in the last ten days, I’ve really cut down on my Coca-Cola intake. I drank maybe one glass in these ten days. Running is one of the problems, because I just can’t seem to find time for it, next to school, guitar lessons, acting lessons, and other activities. I think it would be perfect if I went to bed earlier, I could wake up earlier and immediately go running, which would, for starters, last 20 minutes. That’s my biggest challenge, and I don’t know when I will start running, but that is still part of my more achievable goals.

My end goals, the ones that will be harder to achieve, the ones I strive towards are to weigh 60kg, to be a regular member of the gym and to eat healthier.

I won’t be able to weigh 60kg until the end of the diet, it’s simply impossible to lose that much weight in less than two months. But if I continue to eat healthy even after the diet is over, and if I visit the gym regularly I could achieve it. So all in all, every one of these goals work together, which means I can’t achieve one without the other, and that would become my way of life, so that is what I strive towards the most.

 Bye everyone!

Back to 73!



Ćaos Blogger! 

Evo pišem ovaj post i ne mogu da opišem koliko sam srećna!
Znate već da sam jedno vreme dosta varala. Jela sam puding, čak i brzu hranu i pila mnoogo Koka-Kole. Tako da su mi se dve kile vratile. Onda sam odlučila da ne budem tužna zbog toga i da nastavim sa dijetom i zadala sam sebi cilj da više ne kršim dijetu, tj bar sledeći krug od četiri dana da ne prekršim. Nisam verovala u to što mnogi pričaju, ali istina je - mnogo je lakše kada sebi zadate ciljeve koji su lakši, jednostavniji i ostvarljiviji. Tako sam ja sebi zadala cilj da sledeći krug dijete ne prekršim umesto da sebi zadam cilj da više uopšte u naredna dva meseca, koliko mi je ostalo do kraja dijete, ne pojedem ništa što nije u skladu sa dijetom. Taj krug sam uspela i ostvarila svoj cilj i nekako ni sledeći nisam želela da prekršim, jer sam bila zadovoljna što sam ostvarila cilj, i to je dovelo do toga da sam ponovo na istom mestu gde sam stala! One dve kile koje su se vratile su sada ponovo nestale i ja sam se vratila na 73 kilograma i bila sam presrećna kada sam se jutros izmerila! Radujem se nastavku moje dijete tamo gde sam stala i novim ciljevima!
Između ostalog, danas mi je voćni dan i trenutno uživam u divnoj sveže ceđenoj pomorandži.


Hey Blogger!

I’m sitting here, writing this post, and I can’t believe how happy I am!
You already know that, for a period of time, I’ve cheated on my diet a lot. I ate pudding, even fast food and I drank lots of Coca-Cola. So I gained 2kg. But then I’ve decided not to be sad about it, and continue with my diet, and I’ve set myself a goal, not to break my diet again, or at least not to break the next 4-day cycle. I didn’t believe in what many people told me but it’s true- it’s much easier when you set yourself goals which are easier, simpler and more accomplishable. That’s why I set myself the goal that I won’t cheat in the next 4 days of the diet, rather than not cheating for the next 2 months, which is how long I have left until the diet ends. I managed to accomplish my goal and somehow I didn’t want to cheat in the next cycle, as I was happy that I managed to accomplish my goal. And that led to me getting right back on track. I’m back to 73kg and I was thrilled when I weighed myself this morning! I look forward to continuing my diet right where I left off, and my new goals!
Among other things, today is fruit day and I’m currently enjoying a lovely fresh squeezed orange juice.

Mom's birthday

Ćaos!

Danas i juče je bio haos što se tiče hrane i kontrolisanja sebe. 
Kao što znate, ako ste čitali moje postove, mojoj mami je u sredu bio rođendan, a juče smo je sestra i ja odvele u Narodno pozorište. Juče mi je bio proteinski dan, tako da sam za ručak spremila meso sa paprikom, alevom paprikom, feferonima, paradajzom... Bilo je preukusno! Nakon toga sam otišla do Kneza sa sestrom i mamom i tu smo provele par sati i onda smo otišle u KFC! Naravno, tamo je sve preukusno, ali ja sam morala da izaberem nešto sa malo testa i puno mesa. Hvala Bogu, u ponudi imaju neki sendvič u jako tankoj, reš-pečenoj tortilji sa puno mesa i malo nekog ljutkastog sosa. Tako da sam to pojela za večeru, dok su se mama i sestra davile i u pomfritu i u soku i u sendvičima, salatama itd. Čudno je to koliko one puno jedu, a jako su mršave. Posle KFC-a smo odgledale divnu predstavu Staklena menažerija, moja iskrena preporuka za sve koji vole pozorište. Došla sam kući oko 12h i odmah zaspala.
A danas sam morala da pravim cheesecake, jer je mama odlučila da sutra pozove par prijateljica povodom rođendana. Sutra mi je dan ugljenih hidrata, tako da ću za večeru moći da pojedem jedno parče. Ali, danas je bilo užasno teško da sat i po pravim čizkejk, a ne mogu ni malo da probam. Pa, valjda se tako vežba izdržljivost!



Hey!

Today and yesterday, as far as food and controlling myself is concerned, was a total mess.
As you probably know, if you read my posts, my mom’s birthday was on Wednesday, and yesterday my sister and I took her to the national theatre. Yesterday was also protein day, so, for lunch, I prepared meat with peppers, grounded paprika, chilli peppers, tomatoes… It was delicious! After that I went to the Republic Square with my sister and mom, and we stayed there for a couple of hours, and then we went to KFC! Of course everything there is delicious, but I had to choose something with little dough and lots of meat. Thank God they had a sandwich in a really thin, well-done tortilla with lots of meat and a little bit of some hot sauce. So that was my dinner, while my mom and sister were drowning in french fries, soda, sandwiches, salads etc. It’s weird how much they eat, and yet are very skinny. After KFC we watched a lovely play by the name of “The Glass Menagerie”, I strongly recommend it to anyone who likes the theatre. I came home at about 12 PM and went straight to bed.
Today I had to make a cheesecake, because my mom decided to call a couple of friends over tomorrow, regarding her birthday. Tomorrow is carb day, which means I will be able to eat one slice of it for dinner. However, making a cheesecake and not being able to taste it was extremely hard. Well I guess that’s how you practise endurance!

Coca-Cola?


Ćao svima!



Većina nas je "zavisna" od nečega. Neko stalno mora da jede čokoladu, neko ne može da živi bez kokica, neko toliko obožava kečap, pa ga jede uz svaki obrok. A ja ne mogu bez Koka-kole.
Uvek sam pila Koka-kolu, a prethodne dve godine je pijem svakodnevno i to po litar na dan. Znam koliko je štetna i koliko se gojim od nje i da mi se javlja i celulit, ali je i dalje pijem. Kada sam počela ovu dijetu, nisam je do kraja izbacila. I dalje sam je pila svakodnevno. Nakon više od 20 dana dijete ja je i dalje pijem, ali znatno manje.
Pijem je i sada svaki dan, ali po jednu čašu i težim ka tome da je u potpunosti izbacim. To će, kao i mršavljenje, biti dugačak i težak proces, ali bitno je da imam određene ciljeve u mislima i da radim na njima.
Ako ste ulazili na moj blog danas, videli ste malu anketu o Koka-koli na desnoj strani bloga, odmah iznad dela O meni. Molim vas, glasajte, jer želim da vidim koliko često vi pijete Koka-kolu i da uporedim sa mnom i uopšte današnjom omladinom.

Do sledećeg posta!


Hi everyone!


Most of us are “addicted” to something. Somebody has to eat chocolate all the time, somebody can’t live without popcorn, some people love ketchup so much, they eat it with every meal. I, personally, can’t live without Coca-Cola. I’ve always drunk Coca-Cola, and for the last 2 years I have been drinking it daily, about a liter a day. I know how harmful it is, and how much weight I gain because of it, but I still drink it. When I started this diet, I didn’t get rid of it completely, I still drank it daily, but only a glass a day, and now I’m striving towards cutting it out of my diet completely. That, as well as weight loss, will be a long and difficult process, but what matters is that I have clearly defined goals in my mind, and that I’m working towards them.
If you visited my blog today, you probably saw the small poll about Coca-Cola on the right side of the page. Please vote because I want to see how often you drink Coca-Cola, and compare it with me, and with the youth today in general.


Until next time!

An overview of todays's activities

Hej,
Danas želim da podelim sa vama pregled današnjeg dana.
Prvo što treba da znate je to da mi je danas skrobni dan(pirinač, krompir, grašak itd).
Danas sam ustala desetak minuta pre sedam sati. Kada idem ujutru u školu, obično ustanem ranije, pa pripremim ono što mi je tog dana određeno za ručak, to spakujem u plastičnu činijicu i u školi pojedem, a doručak jedem u autu na putu do škole.
To danas nije bio slučaj, pa sam se za deset minuta brzo spremila, stavila dve banane u torbu i sela u auto sa mamom i sestrom.
U školi sam te dve banane pojela.
Posle škole sam otišla do pozorišta da kupim karte za predstavu kao poklon za mamin rođendan(SUTRA JOJ JE ROĐENDAAAN) i dok sam se vraćala ogladnela sam. Pomislila sam kako bi sada bilo lako da samo odem do Meka ili da svratim u prvu pekaru. Na svu sreću, prošla sam pored nekog fast food restorana, gde se prodaju i krompirići. S obzirom na to da mi je danas skrobni dan, pojela sam krompiriće i zahvalila se Bogu, sudbini, slučajnosti što sam ih videla i nisam prekršila dijetu.
Večeras ću skuvati kući krompir ili ga ispeći i to će biti to za danas.
Odlučila sam i da vam postavim svoju sliku, da vidite kako izgledam nakon -4kg. Nemam sliku pre toga, što je užasna greška, ali nema veze.
Čujemo se opet uskoro!



Hey,
Today I would like to share with you an overview of how my day looked like.
The first thing you should know is that today is starch day which means that I should eat rice, potatoes, green peas etc.
Today I woke up at about 6:50. I usually wake up earlier, when I have school in the mornings, and prepare the lunch for that day, according to the diet. I then pack the lunch in a plastic container and eat it in school, whereas I often eat breakfast in the car, on the way to school.
However that wasn’t the case today, so I had to prepare quickly, I put 2 bananas in my bag and sat in the car with my mom and sister.
I ate those two bananas in school.
After school I went to the theatre to buy tickets for a play, as a birthday gift for my mom, (TOMORROW IS HER BIRTHDAYYYY) but as I was returning home I got hungry. I thought about how easy it would have been to just go into the nearest McDonald’s, or stop by at the first bakery. Luckily, I passed by a fast food restaurant where they were serving fries as well, and since today is starch day, I ate the fries and thanked God that I didn’t break my diet. At that moment I just thought it must have been either a very fortunate coincidence or destiny, that I stumbled upon that place. 
Tonight, for dinner, I will either cook or bake a potato, and that will be it for today.
I’ve also decided to post a picture of myself, so you can see how I look like after having lost 4kg. I, unfortunately, don’t have a before picture, which is a terrible mistake, but it doesn’t matter now.
Talk to you again soon!

UN Diet

Ćaos,

pre svega izvinjavam se na dužini posta, tek nakon što sam ga napisala vidim koliko je dugačak :(

Danas ću da vas upoznam malo sa dijetom koju držim. UN dijeta traje 3 meseca, posle nje bi trebalo da dodje do promene metabolizma i sastoji se od 4 dana koji se vrte u krug: proteinski, skrobni, ugljenohidratni i voćni dan. Caka je u raspoređivanju vrsta hranljivih materija.
Za doručak je svaki dan voće. Po pravilu bi trebalo da se jedu dve iste voćke, ali ja uvek stavim razne vrste voća, jer volim da mi tanjir bude što šareniji, a i na kraju krajeva, bitno je da se jede voće, koje god.


Za proteinski dan većinom jedem meso pečeno u rerni, a ponekad i ribu. Nemam slike, ali ću ih ubaciti čim mi bude bio proteinski dan, a to je sutra. Ovaj dan mi nikada nije teško da izdržim, jer uz ručak ide i supica, bez testenine, naravno, tako da je ceo ručak obiman i zasiti me.

Skrobnim danima ili skuvam krompir, pa napravim krompir pire, ali bez mleka, ili pečem u rerni pirinač sa nekim povrćem, npr. iseckanom šargarepom ili paprikama. Pirinač me više zasiti od krompira, tako da uglavnom jedem pirinač, ali kada se desi da ga nema u kući i moram da jedem krompir pire, tada mi je malo teže da izdržim ovaj dan.

Ugljenohidratni je moj omiljeni dan! Tada za ručak jedem pizzu, ali bez salame, kačkavalja, itd. Volim da stavim kečap, pečurke, masline i par feferona samo da poboljšaju miris i ukus. Takođe, ovim danima je za večeru kolač, što se razlikuje od ostalih dana. Ostalim danima, ono što jedete za ručak, jedete i za večeru, ali pola mere. Nikad mi nije teško da izdržim ovaj dan.


I poslednji, voćni dan, ume da mi bude jako težak, ako pored sebe nemam voće koje volim. Voćnim danima se jede ceo dan samo voće u neograničenim količinama. Npr, ako u kući imam samo one zelene, kisele jabuke, mala je verovatnoća da će mi dan proći lako. Ali ako imam npr. mandarine tj. voće koje volim, ovaj dan ću izdržati bez problema.


Ova dijeta je definitivno najbolja dijeta koju sam ikada probala. Počinjala sam neke dijete par puta i bile su mi jako teške i nikada nisam mršavila. A sa ovom dijetom sam već smršala 4 kg, a uopšte mi nije teško da je izdržim.
Sa druge strane, rekla sam vam da sam kršila dijetu. Ja dijetu nikada nisam prekršila, jer sam npr. bila mnogo gladna. Daću vam primer da vidite kako ja kršim dijetu. Evo, npr. sinoć sam provela veče sa dečkom. Pre toga sam večerala i uopšte nisam bila gladna. Ali, njegova majka je spremila puding i on ga je tako lepo ''dekorisao'', da se meni odjednom javila želja da ga probam. Puding sam slikala, jer želim sve da delim sa vama.


Jutros sam razmišljala kada sam još kršila dijetu i shvatih da su to uvek bile situacije kada neko drugi nešto jede, odmah i ja uzmem zalogaj ili kupim isto. Znači, ja nisam stvarno gladna, već je to na nervnoj bazi. Pokušaću da od sada zamolim dečka ili sestru ili bilo koga da ne jedu baš predamnom, a nadam se da će mi vremenom karakter postati jači i da onda ni tu neće biti problema.

Ali najvažnije od svega, ja sam uprkos ovom kršenju uvek nastavljala sa ovom ishranom i nijednom nisam pomislila da odustanem od dijete. I sinoć sam jela puding, pa sam od jutros krenula sa voćnim danom i zadala sebi da sledeća 4 dana ne prekršim. I ipak, smršala sam 4 kg i neću se predati, nadam se da ću postići svoje ciljeve, jer se ovih -4kg uopšte ne primeti na mom telu, ali polako.


Hi,

Today I want to tell you a little bit about my diet. The UN diet lasts for three months,during this period, your metabolism will  change and there are 4 days you have to do over and over again. So, there are protein days, starch days, carbohydrate days and fruit days.
Everyday you should eat fruit for breakfast.
1. day - You eat meat or fish. And a soup also. This day is very easy for me, because I personally adore meat, and with soup lunch really fills me up, so I don't stay hungry.
2. day - You eat potatoes or rice with some vegetables.For me, the rice part is very easy, but potatoes don't fill me up that much, so I stay a little hungry and that's why this day is  a bit difficult for me.
3. day - This one is definitely my favorite! you eat pizza, but only with ketchup, mushrooms and some chili peppers. For dinner you can also enjoy some cake or cookies. And this is different from other days, because on other days I have half  the portion of lunch for dinner, and now I can eat something sweet.
4. day - The entire day you only eat fruit. Sometimes it can be difficult because I don't like all fruits. But when I have the ones I like, it's really not that big of a problem.
In my opinion, this is the best diet ever! It's not difficult and I've lost 4 kg. And I'd probably have lost more if I hadn't cheated. :) And I don't even cheat because I'm hungry.
For example, last night, I was at my boyfriends. And his mother made us some pudding. I just couldn't resist eating it. I put a picture up here, because I want to share everything with you. So, I actually cheat only when someone's eating something in front of me. But I've decided to ask them not to eat in front of me or just to leave, but as time goes, I will be stronger and, hopefully, that won't bother me.
But, the most important thing is that I never give up! Yes, I  may have cheated last night but today I'm eating only fruits and I have new goals and I'm going to do this!
P.S. Sorry about my English :)

Ćao svima!

Ćaos,

Ja sam Katarina (zovite me Kat), imam 17 godina i pre nekog vremena sam počela jedno putovanje.
Odlučila sam da promenim sebe. Pre tri-četiri godine sam želela da pišem blog, ali nisam imala o čemu. Tada sam se jako dopadala sebi. Bila sam sasvim fino građena, uvek sam se sređivala, uspeh u školi mi je bio izvanredan, imala sam mnogo hobija i u svima sam uspevala i misli su mi bile ružičaste. Sada su te misli sive, imam jako malo hobija i više ni ne znam da li sam dobra u njima, u školi nije baš najbolje - u Gimnaziji sam i jako mi je teško da postignem vrlo dobar i odličan uspeh, a moj izgled kao da je odjednom nestao. Ugojila sam se mnogo za tri godine, izgubila želju za sređivanjem i jednostavno se sebi više ne sviđam.
Ali to sam odlučila da promenim.
Pre dvadesetak dana počela sam UN dijetu i smršala 4 kile, u međuvremenu sam pomalo kršila dijetu, a pomalo vežbala, radila fitness, trčala... Odlučila sam da napravim blog, jer sam konačno našla nešto o čemu bih mogla da pišem - o menjanju sebe, o menjanju svoje spoljašnjosti, a samim tim i unutrašnjosti, o motivaciji, izdržljivosti i istrajnosti. Krenuću na jedno putovanje i deliti ga sa svima onima koji žele da ga prate i tako mi ga ulepšaju. Sigurna sam da ću naučiti mnogo toga na ovom putovanju, a nadam se da ćete i vi.

Hi,

I'm Katarina (you can call me Kat), I'm 17 and some time ago I started a journey.
I've decided to change myself. Three or four years ago I wanted to write a blog, but I didn't know what I should write about. At that time I really liked myself. My body was quite nice, I've always worn modern clothes and make-up, I had all the best grades in school, I had a lot of hobbies and I was actually good at them. My thoughts were all pink. Now those thoughts are grey, I only have a few hobbies and I'm not even sure I'm particularly good at them, I'm currently in high school, and most of my grades are bad plus my physique is gone. I became really fat in the last three years, stopped wearing modern clothes and make-up and frankly, I don't like myself at all.
But I've decided to change that.
For twenty days now, I have been on the UN Diet and I've lost four kg. Sometimes I cheat, by eating something I shouldn't,  but I've been working out too. I've decided to write this blog, because I finally found something worth writing about - I want to write about changing myself, mostly my body, but also my mind, motivation and persistence. I want to start this journey and share it with all the people who want to follow it and make it an easier and more fun experience. I'm sure I'm going to learn a lot on this journey and I hope you will as well.
If you want to contact me, here is my email: katsjourney01@gmail.com
P.S. Sorry about my English. :)
