I have been absent from active sparking for a long time. I'm not sure if most of the people on my friends list even noticed, since I occasionally updated the status, but that's not the point.
Four months ago, I moved together with my BF and things are going great since then. Just as the picture above says, results will come to those who work for them. I did work hard.
I passed my first Latin course, ready to start the next one in two weeks – finishing off my studies earlier than I thought, hopefully.
When I injured my wrist (carpal tunnel syndrome / repetitive strain injury) during exam time, I had to take four painkillers a day to be able to write my exams. I passed all of them nonetheless. Although, typing still hurts if I don't wear a … what do you call it in English? Splint? Those things with a metal bar inside of them that you wear around your lower arm so you are unable to move your wrist.
I tried compensating not being able to bike by hiking a lot. Resulted in injuring my knee as well – so I had to take a break here. While I took that break, three weeks actually, I reached my goal weight. Sounds weird. I'm there now, constantly with some small peaks of 1 pound more or less. I begin to be very confident about my body and what I have achieved. I actually bought my first skirt in like … 10 years? I think so, at least. Might be a little more actually. My legs are still the part of me I like the least, but well. I'm working on that :) The weight isn't that important to me anymore. I try to reduce body fat.
I could write so much more, but yeah. Somehow I feel like I don't need to. Not sure if you know what I mean. It's also the reason why I haven't been as active here lately. I didn't even log in consistently. You know, I did my fitness nonetheless, I ate good nonetheless, I enjoyed myself nonetheless – all the logging for points, for whatever, the tracking, it all just became annoying to me. Even now, this blog is more like “I have to write something, damn I haven't done it for so long”. It's just something that feels more like a chore than like something I like to do and something that helps me at the current state.
Even though I reached the “goal weight”, I'm not at my goal.
Love to all of you, I hope you are doing fine. Remember, you can achieve more than you think you can. I'm sorry for the not-really-a-message-here blog.
