Sindy's Blog - August 31, 2006

August 31, 2006

Camp is officially winding down and I'll be headed back to California on Sunday. I can't believe how fast this summer has flown by. It really feels like it was just last week that I was freaking out about what I was going to pack and how I was going to battle bugs for eight weeks straight!

I honestly never imagined I was going to have this much fun. It's the first time I've really been away from home for this long (I've gone on short trips to visit Simon but I've never gone anywhere by myself where I didn't know anyone). I've met so many great friends who I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with through email and messenger and stuff. I think I might even plan to come back here next summer.

I know you guys are all probably wondering what my status with Connor is... Well, we both realize that while we like each other a lot, we live really far away from one another and it would just be too stressful to try and make anything really stick. But we are totally going to stay friends and he might even come out to California at some point. I'd love to go snowboarding this winter too, so maybe I can convince my mom to take a trip over to Colorado. (And if that doesn't work, I can always turn to my dad...).

Once I get home I'm only going to have a week to get all my stuff together before heading back to school! I still have to do some back-to-school clothes shopping and get all my school supplies. Hopefully my mom's already started to pick some of that stuff up for me! I honestly am so out of the loop about what the new things for fall are. I guess I could check out Kidzworld's back-to-school fashion guide.

What's on your back-to-school wish-list? What do you think the hottest trend is this season? I need all the help I can get.

Peace Out,
Sindy

    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.
