I'm back... I wish I was back earlier!

Sunday, November 04, 2012

I kinda took a break from Sparking for about 2 years... I thought I had everything under control. I managed to reach my goal weight of 54kgs back in May 2011. I was super happy and it helped me enjoy the outdoors a lot.
Among the things I did was a lot of hiking. I climbed at least two mountains and one which was the tallest peak in Malaysia, about 4200m! I went on a solo adventure to New Zealand, did some hiking up hills and glaciers, rock climbing, sky-diving and zip-lining. I had the time of my life enjoying my health and fitness.
Here are some photos.

Work also went well. I got a promotion and though work is at times stressful, I enjoy it a lot. Relationship-wise didn't go too well though. I broke up with my boyfriend of earlier this year and it has been difficult to cope with being single again. I became depressed and work became the only thing I have now... I stopped looking after myself... and now, I am back worse than ever. I had gained 12kgs over the course of a year. I hate looking at myself in the mirror now and when things aren't working out at work I just cry.
I decided to come back here and be surrounded by the positive energy of my Spark Buddies again... in hopes that I could get the motivation to pull myself back together. I am still sad... I really loved him but it just didn't work out. I need to be happy again.. and start looking after myself again. I hope I have the strength.

    Today really is the first day of the rest of your life. Sounds corny but it's true. Move forward doing what you can do, and eventually your immediate past will be something you will enjoy looking at.
