Rob & Chyna: But More So Rob

rob-and-chyna

I’ve been watching the E! channel new show Rob & Chyna. A show that I never thought I would watch since I don’t like watching the Kardashian’s show.

The best thing about this show is the relationship between Rob and Chyna. There have only been two episodes but I’ve learned some things. Rob and Chyna do not have a great relationship… according to those 2 episodes. I’m sure they really do but these episodes have shown me that both of them are kind of regular. Not that I really expected them to be extra, but I expected more in a negative way.

Chyna often speaks on how the media portrays her as some ghetto money hungry stripper. Before this show, I wasn’t exactly a Chyna fan, of course because I only knew what the media put out about her. However after watching her, I think she’s a regular person with regular problems. Chyna is pregnant with her second child and her butt is multiplying (according to her). She does not feel as confident about her body at the moment. I feel that it’s normal for her to feel that way and very relatable.

Rob is hugely insecure about his body and it is affecting his relationship with Chyna. He is so afraid of leaving the house and having the paparazzi take photos of him. Really, he is so disgusted with himself that he can’t go out and just be normal. It’s actually sad. But really I understand him and what he’s going through.

There were definitely times where I felt the same way that Rob feels, when I was gaining weight. It’s hard, you lose your energy and your willingness to put in effort. The days just fly by because you are on autopilot. Somehow you have to get it back together and I’ve gotten mine back. I only hope that Rob can too. I was really shocked to see a man who has “everything” you think you want, just want to stay in the house because he’s depressed. Like what are you depressed for? You don’t work, have to worry about bills, and you can hire the top personal trainers/chefs to help you get back in shape. That’s what I thought initially. But in real life, it doesn’t matter how much money you have, people go through what they go through. I’m just happy I’m not hiding anymore.

Watch the show or don’t watch the show. I’ll watch it just to keep up with Rob’s depression and the idiotic things that Scott Disick says. FYI – Scott is actually the best “Kardashian” lol.

Until next time..

Hangry Krystal :(

Who says being hangry isn’t real? I am a firm believer of it. By the way, I love The Walking Dead, I’m so excited for the premiere!

In the last month and a half, almost 2 months, I’ve really been on my working out and eating healthy “thing” again. Moreso lately, I’ve been eating healthier than in the beginning of those 2 months. My cheat snack was jelly beans, I love those things… except for the black ones. But of course, I’ve been weening myself from them and other empty calorie snacks. I have been opting for pineapples, grapes or even snack size popcorn to help to curb my snack cravings. It’s been going well until yesterday…

I was at work and very hangry. I really wanted a cookie, that my boss had. I ate my cookie last week. These cookies are from Eleni’s bakery (Chelsea Market) and are iced sugar cookies made into cool designs. They were sent to us to show how cool they are and to encourage us to partner with them.

I don’t think I’ve ever had a sugar cookie in my entire life before but Eleni’s gave me life! My mind had it made up that I needed to eat that cookie. (1) It was the afternoon and my energy level/blood sugar was so low since I hadn’t eaten any bad sugars. (2) I just really wanted that cookie. I envisioned that my energy would immediately spike once I ate it. (3) My boss would now give me that cookie. My boss didn’t give me the cookie because she said she was helping me with my weight loss.

She was right, but after complaining for 30 minutes, my lovely awesome amazing boss gave me the cookie. She is really amazing though, even if she hadn’t given it to me. I opened the cookie’s wrapping and I ate 1/4 of the cookie and closed it back…

My energy levels did increase and I had quite a bit of energy after that! The point is, I was very hangry and moody because I did not have sugar. That’s crazy to me! To know that my mood is affected by certain foods. I’ve known it before but I never really paid attention to it until yesterday at work. I won’t go back to jelly beans officially but I’m definitely realizing how sugar is like a drug. There are numerous articles on how sugar affects your mood and is very addictive. Maybe I’ll read some..

This is also why I don’t go on juicing cleanses or detoxes. I’m too mean when I’m hungry. So from now on, I’ll have some backup sugar in a small doses so I won’t turn into a raging bitch.evil_smiley_face

 

This Week’s Diet Failure

Eatting good beyonce

I’ve already failed by calling it a diet when it’s not, it’s a lifestyle change. This week I really failed at my lifestyle change…

I really tried to relax on what I was eating however a few random events popped up. I went to an Empire Watch Party at someone’s house that included wine, cookies, dip, and pizza. I failed.

I went on a date, I failed with wine and pasta. Then Sunday, I was unexpectedly invited to brunch and dinner where I had a burger and fries without the bun and pad thai for dinner. FYI: I’m done with my pad thai addiction, I had the worst pad thai from some random place on the lower east side. It was horrible and I’m sure it was the universe’s way of saying you should stop eating pad thai altogether Krystal.

I realize that unexpected occurrences mess up my meal planning. Lesson learned, plan better for the unexpected and get back on the wagon.

Next week I’m going to win. Yippie!
