Procrastination

Sooooo…. I seem to be a few posts behind. Suck it up Sunday is not off to the greatest start, is it?

Allow me to explain: starting school was a bit tougher than I thought it would be. Eventhough I only have classes from 8.30am – 11.50am, there’s a lot on my plate. Mainly a lot of homework! Also, soccerseason has started again, so I’ve been working on match-days.
To top it all off, I’ve been sick for over a week, which meant no school. Really bad timing, seeing as I have my exam this Friday = 5 days from now! I’m 7 chapters behind, and I just can’t seem to pull myself together and study.
I really want to, because if I don’t pass, I can’t start ‘the real school’ and get My degree….
But I’m just soooo good at doing everything else… And I’m not talking about any productive stuff either… Noooo I’ve been watching every series possible, gone through every single pin on Pinterest AND watched so many videos on YouTube that I’ve lost count.
I can’t be the only one who’s like that, right? You know you’re supposed to do something that is really really really important, but your mind refuses?

Anyway, about my SIU Sunday updates…. It been going okay. I’ve been riding my bike a lot and making sure to eat as healthy as possible. The first few days I didn’t really notice any changes, but after a while, it slowly creeped up on me. My stomach started making some funky noises and some other stuff. I started to feel better but once I got sick, my healthy way of living went down the drain.

Now that I’m feeling better, I’m going to get back on track, because I can now see how much better I felt, eating healthy, being active and so on. So I’m jumping back on the horse tomorrow πŸ™‚

A little life-Update:
This weekend was supposed to be fun-filled – the boyfriend and I had plans to go to the movies on Friday and go to a housewarming yesterday, but instead I took care of my boyfriend who had been sick since Thursday…. He’s a lot better, thankfully, but it was a crappy way to spend the weekend. Luckily, he’s off tomorrow and Tuesday, so we’ll get a few extra days together πŸ™‚

Well… I guess I can’t put it off any longer. I’m giving myself 30 minutes to check Facebook, watch a couple of YouTube videos and after that: study for 4 hours! Sounds good, right? πŸ˜‰

Take Care πŸ™‚

Really want to do it

I am not happy…. Well, I AM happy, but there are certain things I really need to change.
Because I’m on anti depressants, there are some side affects… and those I am NOT happy about. I’ve been gaining weight. Not a lot, but enough to make me unhappy with what I see in the mirror. So I’ve started watching what I eat, and make sure that I eat at least 4 times a day. I try to have fruit and vegetables that I can snack on during the day and I feel a bit better already, which is a good thing.
The next thing I need to start on, is going to the gym. I work at a football club, and because of this, I get a free membership to their gym. So it’s actually pretty stupid, that I don’t use it! So I’ve written down in my calender that I have to go to the gym on certain days. That way, I knoow I’ll feel guilty if I don’t go on those days. I’m also planning on taking Zumba classes again. I really enjoy it and it’s an amazing workout.

Another thing, exercise-wise, is that I’ll be riding my bike to school every day, starting this Monday. It’s too expensive to take the bus every single day, so I’m forced to do it. This, too, will help tone everything.

I just hope I can do this – well it’s not like I have a choice. I’ve been thinking about doing a weekly log-thing. Writing down what food I’ve eaten, what exercise I’ve done, and maybe some recipes, as I’m constantly looking on Pinterest for healthy, fun food.

I think that doing that, will help as well. So, starting next Sunday (August 11th) I’ll begin my Suck It Up Series. I hope you follow it and if you have any tips, tricks or recipes, please comment πŸ™‚

Until next time πŸ™‚

Storytel

Wow, two posts in one day, I’m on fire!

A couple of posts ago, I mentioned Storytel. Well, here’s a little bit more about it.

Storytel is an app that let’s you listen to audiobooks. I’ve always loved to read, but lately I haven’t been reading and it has really been bothering me.

I recently became a Buzzador ambassador, where I get to try out different products and give my opinion on them. And Storytel is one of those things so I guess in a way this is a sponsored post(I’m new to this) but everything I write is my own opinion. Phew, just wanted to get that out of the way, now – on to what this is about.

Storytel let’s you listen to a bunch of audiobooks for a small amount of money every month. I’m not sure how much it is in other countries, but here in Denmark it’s 99 DKR, which is about 17 dollars every month. Pretty cheap considering how expensive books are.

I use the app pretty much every single day. I use it when I’m cooking, cleaning, getting ready in the morning, even at night to fall asleep to. It has a sleep-button I usually set for 30 minutes and then I’m sleeping like a baby.
Now, I know some people might think ‘Well, don’t you miss out on some of the story?’ My answer is: no. There’s also a bookmark option, which I use before I set the sleeptimer. That way, I can just go back to the last thing I remember and I’m all set πŸ™‚

So to sum this all up; I more that recommend Storytel and I’ll definitely continue my subscription πŸ˜‰

Proactiv

Eventhough I’m getting close to 30 (ugh!) I’m still suffer from breakouts. Mostly, like other women, it’s worse close to my period and, of course, when I’m stressed. I feel like I’ve tried everything….

Now, I’ve seen the ads for Proactiv a million times but I’ve never really believed in all the praises because let’s face it: they’re hardly ever true.
But desperate times call for desperate measures and so, I’ve bought a starterkit.
It includes the renewing cleanser, revitalising toner and the repairing treatment. As a bonus-thingy, I also got the daily oil control, the refining mask, green tea moisturiser and a pack of pore refining packettes.
I’m really excited to try it all and I’ll give you a mini-review in a couple of weeks πŸ™‚

R.I.P Cory Monteith

I woke up to some very sad news this morning…. Cory Monteith, known for his role as Finn Hudson on Glee, was found dead in his hotelroom in Vancouver. He was only 31 years old. I’m sure most of you know the he had battled with substance abuse for a number of years and went to rehab earlier this year.
It’s so sad that so many people deal with these kinds of problems…. A lof of people get through it but sadly, a lot of people don’t. My thoughs and prayers are with Cory’s family and friends and his fiancΓ©e, Lea Michele.

If you’re dealing with any type of problem and feel alone, just know that there are people around you who are more than willing to help you through it. You are not alone.

Just another blah feeling

Do you ever wake up and just have this pessimistic feeling? I do sometimes and one of them is today. I don’t really know why though. All I know is that it sucks.

All I can think about are all the tings I don’t have and all the negative things instead of all the good things… It is really draining and sucks the good mood out of everything.

I feel like I’ve tried everything but I guess today is just another blah-day….

A new year

Hello hello,

so, as you know, it was my birthday yesterday – I had a nice and quiet day though. I’m not big on the whole b-day-party thing, haven’t been since I was about 10 years old.Β 

I’m officially 29 now…. Which means I only have 364 days left in my 20’s… A scary though actually.

When I was in my late teens, I always pictured myself married with kids by the time I was 30. Boy did THAT not go as planned.

I’m happy with my life though – but I figured that I’d leave the 20’s behind with a bang!

….. I haven’t really figured out what that ‘bang’ is going to be yet, but I’m thinking about a lot of different things. Doing a 30 by 30 could be possible, but we’ll see.

Anyway, just a small post, letting you know that I survived my b-day – now it’s off to the postoffice. There’s a packet waiting for me containing som Vanish products. I’ve always wanted to try it, and when I got the chance through Buzzador (more on that later), I jumped to it!

Take care πŸ™‚
