What a fabulous start to the year!
New years I celebrated with my friend who was visiting from Auckland. We met a group of guys in town, ended up back at mine for more drinks, then stumbled back out into town again and finally arrived home at 730am still drunk... did this stop me from going to the sunday market to buy fresh fruit n vege? No! I put a jacket on over my red dress and headed to the market. Luckily the walk there was sobering haha.
The guys we met invited my friend and i around for dinner on Sunday night. 2 of the guys are Chinese so they cooked us some traditional Chinese goodies while my friend and i baked a cake n brought that with us.
Last night I went back to one the guys houses and ended up staying there... nothing dodgy, just stayed up talking all night about life in china vs life here in new Zealand. Today I get home to find my flatmates mother wanting to teach me how to make Chinese noodles! I swear my house is like the cooking channel sometimes haha.
So already I've made many new friends this year. I find myself in good company and also find myself being constantly reminded that i am quite a catch. I've never been so confident and proud of my networking efforts!
Today is the last day of my holiday, si the last day of eating and drinking as I please. I have quite a gruelling workout lined up and i have cleared out the fridge, freezer and pantry from any unwanted temptations and replaced them with fresh fruit n vege.
I am in such a great head space at the moment and am craving my routines again!
I had predicted that taking a 2 weeks break would result in a whole lot of bingeing and laziness... when actually my only problem has been alcohol. That has been a problem because I have so many things to celebrate this time of year. But now the celebrations are finishing up and it's back to reality. I feel well rested and am really proud of the person I am becoming.
Every day is still a lot of hard work, but rather than resisting the hard work, I really enjoy watching myself grow as a person and I take a lot of pleasure in comparing myself to just 4 months ago.
Happy 2012 everyone! We're only 3 days in and I'm loving this year already!!
