Sooo, after the last year ended well, the new year didn't start so nicely.
The house I live in was on fire (thank God no one was hurt, and the part my apartment is in wasn't damaged at all), my Granny got sick and is now currently with my parents to get better again. Some more things happened, that I don't want to make public, but it was emotionally exhausting.
As a result, there was no progress in my healthy living project, I was just rushing everywhere, trying to help, thinking too much and besides, working like crazy. Last week, I had a sit-down with myself and made a reality check. I made some decisions:
This year, I will focus completely on staying healthy and getting the best results possible in my exam in November. If I do well, it will be the last exam of my life. The grades I will get will directly affect whether I can pursue the career I wish to. It will be a bit crazy however, as it consists of 11 single written exams, each 5 hours long. It is very demanding mentally, emotionally and also physically, so I want to be in the best shape to get it done as sucessfully as possible.
I decided to take a break from the dating life this year. Let's face it, I haven't been too successful in that field over the last 2 years. I had dates with about 10 different guys (by dates, I mean having coffee and talking, nothing more), and not one showed deeper interest in me. While I will have to figure out yet whether I'm doing something wrong, or whether it is about my look, or whether the guys were nuts and I just haven't found the right one yet, I just can't take no more at the moment. Every time it doesn't work out, I have to build up my confidence again, and I'm sad and distracted for some days. I'd rather focus on improving my life, than letting this pull me down again and again.
So, for the last 10 days, I just ate healthy, ENOUGH and especially enough carbohydrates (no egg white omelets for me anymore, thanks) and even in that shourt amount of time, the results are amazing: I lost 3.7 pounds (or 1.7 kg), my mood is very stable on a high level, I'm much happier and alert than before and have more strength. I exercise again, about 5 times a week for an hour (P90X) and eat a lot of the so-called super or power foods.
So, the start has been made, I'm going to stay on track and just keep doing it, because apparently it seems to work :)
Happy day to everyone!
