It’s February 1st! Hello, we meet again.
Such a great start, but terribly frustrating end to this Monday evening.
It’s safe to say that I’m kind of done with certain companies and their glitchy websites. Trying to take a deep breath and relax my mind, but it’s difficult sometimes.
Anyway, I have a lot of things to do tomorrow, so wish me luck, that my thoughts don’t get the best of me. Life is so messy at times, but here’s to me trying to persevere through the challenges it brings along.
May all of you have a much better evening, take care and stay safe.
Sundays honestly is my favorite day of the week. I don’t know if that makes me feel good about life, or just old? Also, the aftermath of eating junk food over two days was a lot. I actually don’t miss it at all, which is quite a new thing for me.
But, that’s just my thoughts regarding that. It does confirm to me that I feel much better eating meals that I cook from scratch, and it also saves me a lot of money in the long run, so that’s another positive way of encouraging myself to stay on track with my change of lifestyle and overall health journey.
I prefer to not call it a diet, because that can bring out some lingering insecurities of mine. All I can say is, I’m working on it. Moderation is key, so is a balanced lifestyle and understanding the importance of nutrition.
It’ll take time, but the end result will make all of this worth my while.
This past month or so has been a real eye-opener.
It’s February 1st tomorrow, which is really hard to believe, but time doesn’t stand still for anyone. Spent a lot of time reflecting and moving ahead and I look forward to this next month.
Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday, stay safe.
So, another day, another blog post that is uploaded late.
I would go to bed, but it’s the weekend and I have a lot of energy.
Might binge watch something on Netflix and write a bit of poetic material.
Feeling quite inspired, although I feel a bit strange after eating some junk food yesterday evening. Can’t wait to get back to my health based journey, which is right now. I’ve tried to reassure myself that it’s okay to have a cheat day once in a while.
Anyway, I do hope everyone is staying safe and well.
Have a wonderful weekend and take care.
Going to write a quick post for today.
Hope you all have a great evening.
The next write will be a longer one, I’m sure. Until then, I’ll stay off the web for now.
Take care, stay safe and be kind.
Halfway through the week and it’s mad how fast time seems to pass by.
Looking forward to a good night’s sleep, after I get some minor study done.
It’s been quite a bittersweet day, but all you can do is just keep certain people in your thoughts and hope they’re doing well.
I could go into further detail, but let’s keep it vague and not to mention, private. On a positive note, a sibling of mine has a birthday tomorrow so that’s something to quietly celebrate at home.
January went by quick, am I right? Lockdown and all the restrictions make most days seem identical, but all in all, as long as you’re staying safe and keeping yourselves protected, that’s the main thing at the moment.
Weather seems to be less cold today, which is nice. It’s dark outside by the time it’s 5pm, sometimes earlier than that. Hopefully, we get a bit of sunshine soon.
I’ll try and write tomorrow’s post a bit earlier in the day, if possible.
As always, stay safe and take care of yourself and others.
A late night addition to the blog, but I wanted to make sure that I kept up the daily blogging so here we are.
Another cold day, but it’s been relatively great. Honestly tired right now, going to sleep soon, I’m hoping.
Need to figure out tomorrow’s blog post content as well. I need to start a list of ideas, or something like it.
Anyway, stay safe and take care of you.
Sundays are bittersweet. They’re both relaxing and a tiny bit stressful.
For me, it’s been a wonderful day of productivity and I managed to get a lot done in a short amount of time. Tomorrow is going to be slightly different, but I am feeling good about it.
My only goal for tonight is to write this post early (kind of) so I can lay in bed and fingers crossed, sleep before midnight. Spoiler alert, it’s already half past ten and then some.
I need to set my alarms now, so I don’t forget and sleep too long. Might put on some music and drift off to sleep. Fixing my sleep schedule hasn’t been easy, I must admit.
Anyway, I’ll try and keep it short for now, I hope everyone has a good night, or day. Stay safe, take care of yourself and others. Be kind, happy and more.
Having the willpower to stay on track with exercise and eating well seems a lot more difficult during the weekends. I do enjoy working out, aerobic dance is fun, wireless earbuds have been one of the best purchases that I made in 2020.
I did plan to get another hour of exercise in before the end of today, but I already did 30 minutes and that was a good start. Incorporating that into my routine each day is something that I’m still working on, but the gradual weight loss has been very encouraging to witness.
During this lockdown, I’ve really been interested in fitness and overall health in general, which has been an interesting journey by all means.
The end goal has always been to become healthier, in a gradual, healthy way and I honestly do believe it’ll be worth it in the end. Patience is difficult, I am the most impatient person on this planet.
Positive affirmations help too, keeping track of your progress and just knowing that these things take time, there is no transformation overnight.
Remembering to be kind to yourself is important, I know I’ve had my fair share of insecurities. It’s always so wonderful seeing others be body positive, and it reminds me that I’ll get there too, eventually.
Getting older, you feel more comfortable in your skin, and that’s very accurate to some extent. It can be such a complex subject, especially in today’s society.
Regardless, I’m proud of my progress so far, and it’s nice to feel good about yourself. When I reflect back to how teenage me felt, I just wish I could tell her that things will be okay.
Anyway, excuse the long essay on here. Stay safe & well.
There’s nothing more satisfying than a complete list. All the things you wanted to do are done, what a feeling. Whether it’s chores, completing a grocery shop, paying certain bills or just being organized in general.
It’s small things like this, that make me the happiest, especially in the times we are living in now. It reminds me to not take anything for granted, and to know that things will be okay.
Starting this post a bit earlier than usual, which I’m happy about too. Leaving some things to the very last minute can be a recipe for disaster.
All in all, a surprisingly good, balanced day. I’m also happy about the fact that it’s Friday. Weekends tend to feel short, so I’ll be cherishing every minute of mine.
Before we know it, Sunday arrives and off we go to another week. Usually around the end of this month, I would have given up on my resolutions, but I haven’t, for once. That’s also something I’m proud of.
There might be times where I feel less motivated and inspired, but I always try to do my best regardless. What I’ve also noticed is my energy levels have been relatively good, better than before. Supplements have been such a massive part of that change, I am beyond sure of that.
As we near the end of January, I hope that February will be just as wonderful and motivating, perhaps even better. We can hope, right?
Well, I hope you all stay safe and well, and happy Friday!
Here I am, trying to finish my bottles of water needed, in order to complete my intake goal. Also recently started intermittent fasting, so the hydration is very important during these vital hours.
Working on my health has been a priority, and it will continue to be on the agenda as the year goes on, and I become fitter and healthier, not to mention, more confident with my body.
Insecurities suck, but I’m trying to work on those things gradually, understand what has to be addressed and improved. It’s not just the physical aspect, but the psychological as well. It’ll take patience with myself, something I often don’t have.
A sensitive topic for many, I’m sure. To be clear, I’m simply expressing my own experiences with it, but the subject can be complicated for many different reasons. The stigma, the shaming, the unrealistic standards we deal with on a regular basis. It can be a lot for a person.
As we evolve and grow, become wiser and stronger, I am certain that these things will be more understood as time goes on. Hold on to that hope.
