Soooo I'm starting a new "I'm thankful for..." blog, writing one positive thing daily that I am thankful for on that day! I decided to start a new one, instead of just continue with the previous one, because the last time I posted into that one was in March LAST YEAR! Yes, that is 2012! It just seemed wrong to continue a year-old blog post! :)) I can't believe how much time has passed while I didn't log in to Sparkpeople! So much good has happened in the meantime, and a little bad too but that's just life. :)
So here it goes:
Today I'm thankful for ... Sparkpeople! :) YES! :)It's obvious, but I just wanted to put it out there. I kind of "rediscovered" SP today again, after more than a year, it's been a long time coming now, since I have been struggling to find motivation. I'm one of those people who knows EXACTLY what she should and shouldn't eat, exercise, how much, etc. I know all the facts, I know what and how I should do this, but I lack motivation oftentimes and that interferes! Sooo I'm thankful for Sparkpeople, because being on the website today and in the past days has given me so much hope and joy! Thank you Sparkpeople! :) I'll be back with a new one tomorrow and I hope to keep this going every day! :) Take care everyone! :)
Today I'm thankful for ... my 10 days off and the empty house all for myself in those 10 days (until my boyfriend comes home at 6...), because these have allowed me to refocus to the truely important things: health, yoga, good nutrition, healing, self-love! :)
Today I'm thankful for ... living in a first world country where 'fancy' stuff like quinoa, stevia, etc. are accessible! I lived in Romania until a year ago, I'm not saying it's not accessible there, but it's much more expensive compared to the wages. Living in the UK, and earning a regular salary allows me to buy any 'fancy' food I want! :)
Today I'm thankful for ... the fact that I only work 4 days a week, not 5! True, it's 10-hour shifts, not 8, and with the lunch breaks and the road to and from work, and preparing in the morning it adds up to 12 hours, but at least I have 3 whole days off!
Today I'm thankful for ... the fact that I'm FINALLY off from work!!!
Today I'm thankful for ... the fact that I move around a lot at my job! I generally don't like working there at all, and it's only for an other year, until I move back home, I only do it for the money and because I didn't find any other jobs (we live at a region where unemployment is high and it's very hard to find a job). But, as I said, I'm glad that it a job where I walk around all day long, only sitting down in the lunch breaks, and I'm not just standing, I'm mostly walking, not fast though, just normally - so all in all it's really healthy and today I'm especially glad about this, because this week I overindulged two times in ice cream and each day I ate a little bit more than planned d(1200 kcal would've been the plan) and I thought I blew the whole week, but I weighed myself this morning and I actually lost a pound!!
Today I'm thankful for ... the fact that I'll be traveling home to my parents in about 5 days!! :) I can't wait! I'm gonna attend a good friend's wedding, I'll catch up with my family...the little things! :)
Today I'm thankful for ... the extra 2 days off that I got, unplanned! YAAY! I accomplished so much already thanks to these days off! :)
