Day 14: Recap

Another week, another recap

Advertisements

The second week is over. Time for a recap!

What was the best part of last week? 

The weather, meeting my new friend Angela and getting around to get some photography done. 

What was the hardest?

Following the rules – especially while being sick.

What have I learned?

That I need to stop wasting time on screens and focus on my life. Also, that I should stop watching shows about fake lives when I have my own, real life.

Three things I want to do next week:

a. Get back with medicine? 

b. Handle my finances

c. Get the apartment done to where we can visitors at any given time and not feel ashamed. 

Day 10

Rules followed: 5/8

The weather was gorgeous. I am big fall lover thus I had to be outside for the golden time and see nature’s most beautiful phase. Since my BF seems to be under a lot of stress lately, we decided not to use our phones (I broke the rule by taking pictures with it before popping out my DLSR) and instead search for serenity.

The BF chose a route to hike. It was bloody long. We got see the Löwenburg in Rhöndorf or let’s say we got to sit on ruins of a castle while we got to enjoy the most beautiful view ever – combined with beautiful weather. My weight issues were clearly presented to me on the way up as geriatric joggers passed me by while I couldn’t breathe and my heart was acting up. As a formerly thin person, I know how much easier moving around is once you drop a certain weight. I cannot wait to get there again.

My activity tracker counted 22.993 steps until midnight. After our hike we went to Ikea to grab a bite and then walked through the entire thing without buying anything (very proud of myself). Once we got home we took quick showers and changed, then hopped on the train to meet our friends. I felt glorious. Being outside isn’t really on my mind anymore but there is nothing more relaxing than a walk through the woods.

I ate some candy, I ate real food. I enjoyed it all. For my late-night-snack after drinking, I decided to let everybody have a bite to try. Hanging out with hungry guys is a good way to drop weight because they take giant bites. I only ended up eating half of what I ordered and that was more than enough. I felt fine not eating that much. Actually, that might be the biggest change I am currently experiencing: I get by with lesser food. The down side: The BF eats up my left-overs although he himself is very unhappy with his weight and he wants to drop some weight as well.
