5 Things I'm Working on

1. Being creative with my style, tricking people into thinking I am fashionable, and essentially, working with what I have. Do I have a lot of clothing items to work with? Not at all. Do I have massive closet space as a result of me selling/donating 90% of my wardrobe before traveling for 5 months? Yup! As I slowly start to rebuild my wardrobe, I learned that mint green goes really well with grays. Who knew?!

2. Making the time for it, especially if it's really important to you. While I'm still getting adjusted to a pretty demanding work schedule (M-Th 10am-8pm, F 10am-2pm), I'm realizing that I don't have a lot of time to do everything I want to do. One of my main goals is to continue working out and feeling good about myself so I make time for it, no matter how exhausted I am in the morning or night. I wish I had more time in the day - - but then I also realized wishing it does nothing. Don't try it. It doesn't work. Just schedule it and go.

3. Being nice to strangers, even at the gym. Even when they come off creepy and continue to talk to you about their recent business trip to California while you're doing crunches or stretches, and even more ironic that your name is Jim...from the gym. (Note: It will be my last week at this gym and will be using my boyfriend's gym starting this week...[insert sigh of relief])

4. Making my own meals and bringing it to work. There are days when I just don't feel like hard-boiling my eggs or making a sandwich the night before - - but has it been worth it? Yes, yes, and yes. I'm not really down with the vending machines that claim to have "food" in them. Highly processed and I won't get anything from it but bad crap into my system. Below you can see some of the groceries I tend to get (foods that are easy to prepare and some only require rinsing):

5. Taking it easy. Taking it slow. I tend to push myself and get discouraged. Sometimes I'll forget about the things I have accomplished and instead, dwell on the things I didn't get done. For every few things I do accomplish, that small goal that I didn't quite meet will nag the crap out of me. Why? My bad habit. I'm going to continue working on appreciating myself more. Otherwise, I might end up like the girl I met yesterday who only sleeps for 3 hours each night, and hates her life [true story].

Talk time: What are you working on this week? What kind of week has it been for you? Do you tend to wear yourself thin or the opposite?

  1. Ah, these are all great things to work on - health is the most important, and you really highlight that here!
    Thankfully, I go to the gym on campus, so it's mainly fellow students my age. Occasionally, I encounter an older stranger, but they're usually very warm and friendly. ^^

  3. Great things to work on this week! I'm working on being gentle on myself. It's the one week of the month where everything is let's say... more water filled and I'm craving everything that's bad (junkfood). I'm being gentle with myself and relaxing about it. Who cares.... it will all be back to normal next week ;) One bit of ice cream won't kill me... or maybe a couple bites.
    Have a great weekend!

    1. Hey Michelle! Absolutely, I'm doing my best to remember these goals and keep at it. Haha, sometimes it's definitely okay to reward yourself, everything in moderation is okay. Ice cream is bliss, in my eyes. Have a lovely weekend girl!

  4. Oh Cathy am going through such a weird phase in life where I constantly blame myself for everything and honestly haven't been doing anything of significance either. But reading your blog always gives me hope and cheers me up in the best manner. Please always keep writing.
