1. The big things that you changed your mind about

The dream job you never thought you’d quit. The person you didn’t think you’d leave. The plans you had for the future that never came to fruition because something else got in the way. Life ebbs and flows and to keep up with it we have to do the same. We have to forgive ourselves for having the self-awareness to change our minds about the really big things.

2. The ways in which you fought through pain

The dark paths you shouldn’t have gone down. The crazy things you did in the name of coping that brought about more damage than good.

Day 2- Fri, 7th Nov 2014

Exercise: –

Breakfast: Uji Cha, Granola

Lunch: Gado-gado

Snack: Plain Fairy Cake

Dinner: Mixed Rice

Dessert: Iced Lolly

Didn’t wake up at 7.15 today and decided to sleep in. Slightly disappointed in myself for not making the effort to get up but I’m not going to let that get me. So back to the cleaning and doing work and while the weekends are my ‘cheat’ days, I’m going to try to be more mindful of what I’m putting in my body.

Cheers,

Day 1- Thurs, 6th Nov 2014

Exercise: 3km walk, Lower Body Workout (Popsugar)

Breakfast: Cup of Musli, Green Tea with Honey, Vitamins

Lunch: Mixed Rice

Snack: Plain Fairy Cake

Dinner: Mixed Rice

Dessert: Iced Lolly

Getting up at 7.15 when I knew I could be sleeping in was complete torture, but the weather was good and walking around without my phone and any social media sites was surprisingly nice. I didn’t feel sleepy coming back from the walk and in fact managed to go through both a drawer of clothes and also the shoe cabinet.

I knew I sucked at the lower body workout but my motivation is to be strong enough that I can do it decently in 2 weeks.

Not going to weigh myself and make this about chasing a number on a scale, but the aim is to fit better in my F21 skinny jeans that I can zip but am spilling out of by the end of the month.

Cheers,

Elie
