Some days the spring weather just decides to peek out, and today is one of those days. After having done a halftime presentation of our finale thesis I took the rest of the day off, and that meant relaxing in the sun while watching the vampire diaries. With that I made french toast with sun-dried tomatoes, feta cheese and arugula, and “a side of” mushroom pasta.
The day has consisted of re-watching the vampire diaries, working on my finale thesis project and struggling to control my diet. After watching the vampire diaries finale I felt like I just needed to re-watch it all. Which in turn came at a really bad timing, considering I have way too much to do. But I am who I am, and am already at season 2 after watching for about 3 days… I have however been studying whilst watching, making it slightly half-arsed.
Throughout the day I have tried to remain healthy, avoiding my habit of constantly snacking and staying away from gluten. I had a bowl of vanilla yogurt (or cottage cheese as google translate told me) with kiwi and blueberries while I took a bit of a study break.
The day has been somewhat hectic, with two interviews booked and a project deadline at 5 pm sharp. The interviews went great and since we had a few hours in between them, a lunch out was in order. However turning in our finale project was not as successful as the interviews. Opening the model-file, we realized that we had a lot more to do than anticipated. However we finished everything and tried to make all our drawings into pdf:s, but the school computers wouldn’t have it and decided to just crash and freeze midway. Which in turn made us miss the deadline time, and at that point our mood just went sideways. Thankfully having understanding teachers, we were able to turn in our project a few hours later.
It hasn’t really been a productive couple of weeks. As usual I have directed my focus away from my goals and the things I need to do. The month of March has thus far consisted of partying, stress-studying and a lot of decision making. Mainly however, it has not consisted of a healthy diet, life style or exercise pattern. At this point it feels as if starting over is all I ever do, and I start over after a week or two. My unhealthy eating habits is to be displayed here, but for now, here is a picture of a delicious pesto chicken pizza I had the other day. The first picture is from a cafe where I sat and studied by myself, which is kinda big for me.
When I last posted it was still January and I had this picture of change for February. But that is what it all was, until I actually am at the point it will all just be a hope, a goal that I want to achieve. i have not yet managed to cut out gluten completely, nights and weekends are the worst, when cravings kick in.
At the beginning of the month I was rather ill, and now I’m swamped with schoolwork. But these are mainly excuses, so at some points during the week I try to get myself to the gym, and even though it’s hard, I restrict myself the best that my self-discipline allows at this moment. But all I can do is try and try harder every time, because this is something I want, and therefore this is something I am going to get, by myself, for myself.
I have however went to some workout classes and I must say that after finishing the full class I was kinda proud of myself. Because I managed to pull through at all steps, some that I have struggled with before. I personally see this as an improvement.
Just for the sack of a picture here is my lunch the other day, when my group project partner and I decided we deserved a proper lunch break after all the work we’d done.
I’ve been watching YouTube video after video, scrolling through Instagram with all these healthy fit models, and just asking myself “why can I not succeed with my goals?”.
So I set up my goals, this blog and now this will hold me accountable for what I do and what I don’t do. So now I’m here with my delicious smoothie in hand and filing up this blog. So let’s do this. 2017 we are gonna do this, I’m gonna do this!
