Week 1 - Day 5 update

3b52376f6daf304ade2ad896796c0e04.gif

 

Food: 5/7

Stretching: 4/5

Exercise: 0/1

 

Had a few vegan meatballs for dinner that contain about 30% chickpea/corn, it doesn't add up to much within a whole day of food but I might still count it as breaking my rule... we'll see.

Still not done any yoga or ballet practice yet. It shall happen during the week-end then!

Not stretched today, yet. If I do, I'll add it in tomorrow.

 

Otherwise, been feeling super under the weather this past couple of days.

I've really wanted to go crazy with my favourite comfort foods today but managed to stay reasonable and within my rules.

I hope motivation kicks back in for a wee session of yoga or barre, that's all i'm asking ^_^

 

Seeing everyone doing so well is helping for sure!

Let's breathe in. Try to centre myself.

Oooh, glowy sailor. I feel energised by the glow. Yeah, I was super tired yesterday and today in the afternoon. I don't know if I'm catching a cold, or if it's just normal variation in energy. I tried taking naps, but they made me more tired. All my nerd fitness nerds gave me the Bock (translate: goat? desire?) to go for a walk this afternoon. It perked me up much more than the stupid nap. 

I hope you start feeling better and get some Bock as well.

Oh man, looks like we both had a bit of a day yesterday. Hope today was better? 

 

As Harriet put so nicely, I hope you have more Bock aujourd'hui (My best Frangledeutsch) ;)

I hope motivation appears! But, if not, remember you can do it! These challenges aren't easy, and sometimes we need to fight even if motivation is low. But you can do it! :)

 

Thank you so much!

I did some cleaning around the house and I feel a lot more motivated, it always makes me feel better.

We can do it! :D

Week 1 summary.

 

tenor.gif?itemid=4709976

Happy Autumn Equinox everyone! I'm celebrating by eating lots and lots of grapes, how about you?

 

 

Food: 5.5/7

Stretching: 5/5

Exercise: 1/1

 

In the end, I decided to count my vegan meatball slip as a 0.5, but I also had a small bowl of granola yesterday, so that's -1.5 for me.

It's not great, but my other meals were so healthy that my gut feels really good already and that's the goal for this challenge!

 

I stretched everyday, I always feel so relaxed afterwards that I didn't need to coerce myself into it ^_^

Aaand finally did a beginner barre routine this morning, it was 33°c here so it was a hot workout! But after a shower, I felt so good! It was really hard though, just maintaining base positions was difficult. I really need to practice!

 

And now I'm dead. Good night guys, see you tomorrow for week 2!

Week 2 - Update on day 3.

 

Food: 3/7

Stretching: 3/5

Workout: 0/1

 

Finally took the first step towards my life quest. I got to the local social security office 45 minutes before opening time, so I was "only" number 20 in line. It does mean that I got to see someone really quickly and only waited 1 hour in total, yay!

Sadly, but as expected, I needed an extra paper :/

I now need to get a certificate of residence, which requires visiting at least two other administrations. There's several options for me to obtain it, so right now I'm trying to figure out which option will be the least painful xD

 

As Lady Amezan might say, hwaiting!

Woo hoo, I got quoted! :)

 

Congrats on starting the bureaucratic quest. Every time I go to the immigration office here in Korea, I end up needing another piece of paper. It's not the worst process--we can make appointments online ahead of time--but it still always takes more time than I expect, and feels confusing as heck!

 

I have to send a work-related email this weekend that will take 20 seconds of courage, so I'm going to try to take inspiration from your skirmish with the social security office. 

 

Time to gather my magical weapons and do the tough stuff. I hope the next stage in your quest is successful!

Good job with the paperwork. Ugh, it's so tempting to put it off. But you started, which is the hardest part.

 

Thanks! It does feel a little easier now that I took the first step. We'll see what happens this week ^_^

Yep, that's that only way to treat paperwork – take your shirt off and slam it. Wear knee guards. The actual bureaucrats, on the other hand, just need to be spoken to in a firm voice with heroic persistence.

So, it's time for WEEK 2 - SUMMARY!

 

awesome-anime-gif-6.gif

 

Food: 5/7

Exercises: 1/1

Stretching: 5/5

Life Quest: in progress

 

I stretched everyday and did my barre practice on Friday so the fitness part went well.

However, I did have granola as a snack friday and saturday evenings + my usual cheat meal, so that's not so great. Granola will be my demise!

I'm already getting symptoms, so let's do better for week 3!

WEEK 3 - DAY 1

 

Food: 1/7

Exercise: 1/1

Stretching: 1/5

 

Today was great!

I did my barre practice and added in a few centre exercises that kicked my butt and got my shoulders burning! It felt so great that I might do another practice this week, who knows.

Food-wise, we had guests and I cooked for a legion as usual (does anyone else have this paranoia of making too little food for guests?), so we'll be eating risotto for a few days xD rice is way less triggering for my symptoms, so I'm letting this pass as long as I eat lots of veggies and fruits every day.

Let's see what happens bureaucracy-wise!

Have a good week everyone!

Good job on last week! Yes, I tend to cook too much when people come over. Then again, you can't bake half a cake. Or can you?

You're rocking this challenge!!

 

I'm also a huge feeder when I have friends over. I blame it on my mother. Never run out of food, and never run out of drinks either! Even though I don't drink anymore I'd still buy like 2 bottles of wine per person for a big dinner :D you never know...
