Manic day today!!

Today was a manic day at work. It was so busy and everything that could have gone wrong went wrong. And then to top it all off my Outlook decided to call it a day as I couldn't open any emails anymore. So tomorrow will have to go to IT to have it sorted. I have this before and IT told me that my Outlook might have been corrupted or infected!! Not good!!
But even with all the stress I had today I manage not to resort to food especially chocolate as I would have done in the past. Very proud of myself! I really feel like now I have turned a corner and can manage the stresses in life without going to chocolates. Although I am sure that some days I might still do it. But every time I don't I feel like I have achieved a big step in the right direction!! So all this clean eating (not 100% clean but definitely so much cleaner than a few months ago! So for me right now it is clean enough :)) is paying off and also cutting out pasta, bread, potato and rice is one of the best things I've ever done. I have to say when I am really tired and lazy I just want to eat pasta with pesto but apart from these moments I don't crave it anymore. Another very positive thing for me! Some people might say that you shouldn't cut out stuff of your diet. I totally agree with that but what works for me doesn't necessarily works for someone else. I am very much an all or nothing kind of person ... maybe something to do with the fact I am a gemini :)

Today my PT was back from holiday and we had a very good session... in the gym. I so hate the gym but I know it is good for me. That is probably the reason why I need a PT as I wouldn't be able to motivate me to do weights and stuff. And right now for me it is a good investment as it will make me feel better and look like a princess ... HA!

Breakfast: Porridge oats, sunflower seeds, skimmed milk and chocolate whey protein
Snack: Apple
Lunch: Peaches with tuna, egg mayonaise. (This is a dish our family used to have during summer) Dessert: 2 Nectarines
Snack: 100gr yoghurt, redcurrants, strawberries, blueberries and vanilla whey protein
Dinner: Same as breakfast - couldn't be bothered with cooking anything. My arms feel like jelly after my workout. I have to start to be more organised and cook something over the w-e and freeze it! Dessert: Grapes
Drinks: Cafe latte, 3L water and energy drink

Exercise: Gym session with PT

Life is not a dream. Life is trial and is stated in English Translation of the meaning of Qur’an: The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing). “Everyone is going to taste death, and We shall make a trial of you with evil and with good, and to Us you will be returned.”(21: 35)

Allah hath promised to Believers (Mu’min, one who has faith in Islam), men and women, gardens under which rivers flow, to dwell therein, and beautiful mansions in gardens of everlasting bliss. But the greatest bliss is the Consent of Allah: that is the supreme felicity (triumph). (9: 72)

For those who respond to their Lord, are (all) good things. But those who respond not to Him,- Even if they had all that is in the heavens and on earth, and as much more, (in vain) would they offer it for ransom. For them will the reckoning be terrible: their abode will be Hell, - what a bed of misery! (Ar-Rad: 18)
By (the Token of) Time (through the ages),
Verily Man is in loss,
Except such as have Faith (Faith in Islam), and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of Truth, and of Patience and Constancy. (103: 1, 2, 3)

Allah jalla jalaluh revealled Prophet Muhammad (pbuh): Say: "What has come to me by inspiration is that your Allah is One Allah: will yet herefore bow to His Will (in Islam)?" (21: 108)

It is very easy to accept Islam, only one Haqq (absolute truth) Deen (deen, the completely way of life). Your repentance is the testimony of faith. Revive by holding fast to the Rope of Allah (Qur'an). At first you must reject Taghut (Anything worshiped or obeyed other than Allah (jalla jalaluh)). Sincerely Say Shahada (Confession of a Muslim) for your eternal felicity and Do rescue! You should convert from kufr (denying Islam) and shirk (to float true and error) to Islam. Submit your will to Islam and escape the the effect of Shirk and monotony: ‘ESH’HADU ANLA ILAHE ILL’ALLAH, WA ESH’ADHU AN’NA MOHAMMED’EN ABDUHU WA RASULUHU’
I bear witness that there is no Ilâh (worthy of worship) except Allah (The Only One Almighty, Only One Rubb (Lord)) and Allah has no partners; and I bear witness that Muhammad is His abd (servant) and Messenger.
