Sindy's Blog - August 17, 2006

August 17, 2006

I didn't really expect for this to happen but... the rain has arrived! It's windy, wet and basically miserable. All of our outdoor activities have been cancelled this week and we've been scrambling to find things to do inside!

There have been lots of movie afternoons, craft sessions and board games. I don't know why I assumed that summer camp was just going to be sunny and hot the whole time, but I totally forgot to pack any anything for the rain. Luckily the other counselors have been nice enough to lend me some warmer clothes.

Connor has given me one of his sweatshirts to wear until we head home. It's way too big for me, but it smells really good and it's so warm and cuddly. I really have to watch myself cuz I feel like I'm falling for him - and I don't feel like dealing with a broken heart when September rolls around.

I guess I'm just going to have to do my best to stay strong. Maybe once this rain storm passes I'll just give Connor his sweater back. Yeah - that's what I'll do. That's what I should do, right? Ahhh, why do boys always have to complicate things?

Well, I guess I should get my butt back down to the mess hall and start helping with dinner. We're having pizza tonight so everyone's in pretty good spirits. We'll gorge on pizza and then have another popcorn and movie fest. I wonder if Connor will be there? I wonder what I should wear???

Do you have a crush this summer? What, if anything, have you done about it? !

Peace Out,

Sindy

    Should Sindy Give the Sweat-shirt Back?

    • No, it's cute that he lent it to her.
    • She should return it if she doesn't want to fall for him.
    • She can just return it before she heads home.
    • She shouldn't have borrowed it in the first place.

    EndlessDream is right. Skipping breakfast and lunch can result in stomach ulcers and sudden weight gain (had personal experience...), ESPECIALLY skipping breakfast! You have to incorporate exercise in your daily routine. Stomach and body fat is mostly caused by lack of exercise, and maybe that means you need to do toning exercises. Try doing simple exercise videos like the 3-mile powerwalk on YouTube (trust me, I sweat like crazy when I do those workouts). Anything that gets you sweating, is the kind of exercise you need to do.  I hated working out when I first started my weight loss journey too. I would always start wheezing every time I started working out. But after pushing through everyday, I think working out is one of the best stress busters I've ever had!  If you want to lower your appetite though, I suggest eating a full lunch and breakfast and skipping your dinner. If you can't skip dinner, then at least try aiming for an early dinner, around 5:30 or 6:00. Your body needs time to digest at least 4 hours before you sleep. I started gaining weight around puberty when I was 12, it could be the same for you too.  But honestly, there's nothing wrong with having consciousness about your weight. Now starving yourself and dieting is BAD, but there's nothing wrong with changing your lifestyle in order to be fit. It's a good thing that kids start caring about their health, and the earlier you start, the better off you are.

    You need breakfast and lunch. Starving yourself, even if you aren't hungry, makes you loose energy to the point you could pass out from not eating. Keep your diet healthy. For breakfast, at least have yogurt, fruit, and juice. Drink at least 4 full glasses of water a day. Trim down on the snacks. Everyone has different bodies and build. You may just be large-boned. And that's not bad! That makes you stronger and higher ability to gain muscle. Loosing weight doesn't happen over night. It can take months.

    For years my parents would tell me I'm skinny but compared to other people, my waist was bigger and I would always hide it. Though it was obvious I weighed more, I've only been doing this for a week and I didn't ever tell anyone what I was doing until my parents found out. I would skip lunch and breakfast and say I was full. I only ate a big dinner every night. Once my parents found out, they said it was unhealthy and if I didn't  stop, I would develop an eating disorder. I obviously listened to them, but I've tried as best as I can so far. I have barely lost any weight from exercise and my parents won't let me go on a diet because I already 'eat healthy enough'. I want to lose weight without exercising being 3/4s of my lifestyle. I know, I'm a lazy idiot for saying all this.

    Yes, purely for the fact that you should not "hate" your sister (or anyone, for that matter).  I'm guessing by "get in trouble for her", you mean she does something wrong and the blame is all put on you? Yeah, little siblings tend to do that a lot. My brother did for the longest time, until my parents found out how much a liar he is. She, hopefully, will grow out of this eventually. Either that, or your parent[s]/guardian[s] will eventually see through her. You lose your friends to her? By this do you mean your friends want to hang out with her and they want you to tag along and you don't? Or do you mean your friends chose your sister over you? If it's the latter, then perhaps you shouldn't have ever referred to those people as friends. You'll find friends who'll prefer you over your sister, I'm sure of it. The only thing I can tell you to do is try to get along with your sister. Every group of siblings has their cats and dogs moment in life, but they grow out of it (most of the time; there are, of course, circumstances where it doesn't work out that way). Please be grateful for your sister, even if you two fight a lot. You never know how much you need something until it's gone.
