Looking back on July

Saturday, August 03, 2013

Hello everyone!
I haven't blogged or made a video for quite a long time and I think it is obvious that I need to cut my bangs!

How was my July? I am not sure where to begin with.

My exams went well more or less! As soon as they finished i took one week of holidays. I didn't go anywhere special, i was just hanging out with my friends and doing stuff that I like for one whole week. And most importantly I was neither thinking of any responsibilities nor stressing about a single thingfor one whole week, which was a great luxury for me!
After that week I started studying again, and along with studying came the stress of course....

The unfortunate part of my holidays was that while I had managed to lose a total of 9 pounds, during that week I gained the 6 of them back. And I haven't managed to loose these regained pounds eversince. The proved to be quite stubborn! So, this is something to keep in mind the next time I will have holidays! That I shouldn't let my temporary fun to spoil my past efforts!

Another thing that happened this summer is that I broke up with my boyfriend. We were together fora little more than 2 years. I think breaking up was the right decision, because we had not been making each other happy for some time. But it is tough nevertheless. There was a time that I was dreaming of and believeing that we would grow old together. So...that's over!

All in all no great progress with sparking, but I don't mind because frankly I was not very focused on it! I intented to put more emphasis on my fitness and exercise the last month, but I had a minor health problem. My doctor said that my immune system was very weak and that until i get better I should rest, take vitamins and try not to stress! (Big news!) And maybe I used this as an excuse to skip exercise some times. (bad Kiki)

I think that is all. It wasn't a fun month (except from the holiday week), but I am positive that better things are going to come in the future! And I am ready for them to come! Do you hear universe?

No, let me rephrase that! Great things are not going to come to me! They are are somewhere out there and I am going to go and get them! And so should you!

So a hug from me and many wishes for a great August!!!

PAS.1: I am currenty at my parents house, hence the cross on the wall at the background. I noticed it later, and I didn't want to redo the whole video just for that. I don't mean to insult anyone's failth or beliefs by that. Just making clear that it is not something I would chose intentionally as a backround for my sparkvideo.

P.S.2: How many times did i use the word "so"? The first one to count/guess right gets a special goody!

    Sooooooooo let me just say ........ I am also a "so" person ......... emoticon so it is ok with me! ............. I think it is understandable and great you focused on what you needed to .............. and I know it is easy for many to get carried away on the social aspect and neglect our exercise and food planning, etc ............. sooooooo on that, I am doing way less socializing as well! ................. I have to remember why I joined to begin with! ....... Best to you!

    Exam time is stressful, it is a time to take special care of yourself, so as not to get sick. I am glad the exams went okay for you. "Breaking up is hard to do" says Neil Sadaka, and it is true. But it is better than not being happy! Continue taking good care, get back to tracking and your weight will fall again. I see you are taking antibiotics - follow the Dr's advice, take them all.
    Have a great August! Let's get going good! emoticon emoticon

    4 " so's" plus the one where you are asking for a count! emoticon

    I know that stress is something that seems to sabotage me on a regular basis. We have no control over some of the things that stress us. Bad relationship can be stressful but hard to put aside. It's tough but I think you'll find that ending your relationship will be the beginning of new and better things. It's much easier to lose weight if you're happy! Go out and get those great things!

    It sounds to me like you DIDN'T waste your July! You took care of yourself. You rested. You broke up with your boyfriend, changed your life, and now you can go on to do great things!
