IN's and OUT's


-Getting back to shape
During winter I tend to gain weight so during
the last week I decided to do something about it.
I try to exercise everyday. I'm not a gym person
but I enjoy running and practising yoga at home.
I also have Wii Fit- although it's not super serious,
it brings the variety.

-Living on my own
I've always shared a flat. Either with flatmates
or a boyfriend. For the first time ever I live on my own.
I'm not gonna lie- it was rough at first (it is still sometimes)
but I started to appreciate it. For once it's about what
I want. I learn how to be happy with myself.
Cos if I'm not happy with myself,
I will never be able to be happy with somebody else.

-Eating more reasonably

I don't call it a diet (this word makes me go: ewww lol)
I eat more veggies & fruits, control my portions
and reduce the junk food. I don't want to do
anything too extreme cos I know I wouldn't stick to it
for too long. I've been doing it for a week and I lost 1 kg
which motivates me a lot:)

-Drinking water
I drink at least 2l of water daily and I can't emphasise
enough its benefits! My skin looks better, I feel less tired
and it fills my stomach so I don't get hungry too quickly.


I've been dealing with a lot of stuff recently.
I can feel that both my body and my mind are exhausted.
That's one of the reasons why I became so obsessed with
changing my eating and fitness habits:)
(*look at INs*)

-Lack of sleep

My sleeping pattern is all over the place.
I'm a night person. I enjoy staying up to 4 or 5am
but college and work require being reasonable:)
Last 2 weeks were really tiring because I couldn't
sleep at night and I was like a zombie during the day
trying to survive. Then I used to have a nap in the afternoon
and of course still couldn't sleep at night. It was like a closed circle.
I'm working on that.

I'm learning how to control my shopping.
It's painful:/
