    thank you so much for your kind words It really is a self-confidence boost when your skin is actually doing what you'd like it to <3

    I'm back after a long while of not posting anything. All my hard work went downhill after only one evening of eating sweets. It was crazy. It's like all my bad habits came back rolling into one after I decided I would eat a couple of snacks. So I binged for a week or so. I think I was also mentally quite stressed - I got a new job which involves not only meeting new people but changing countries and city. I was in a state of ignoring all my feelings. Because while I am ecstatic that I am finally actually going to be learning new things and meeting new people, it was breaking me inside to leave my people. I was trying not to cry but that may have resulted in me needing to vent in other ways that I am actually sad of leaving (who would have thought - after 3 years of complaining about the city ), so I vented by eating. I also could not work out because I think I might have injured my inner thigh somehow. Sometimes I could not even move my leg. I think it's almost healed now, but not exercising for weeks was really not good for my mental health.

    Either way - I think I am kind of back now. I worked out again first time properly on Monday. Did a beginners' youtube video which showed me that my legs are strong but my abs are not Afterwards I did yoga in my garden. It was only 12 degrees I was told but it was the most amazing feeling I have had in some while. Birds, winds, river - ah it was a tiny piece of heaven

    I am not quite sure how much more I'll be updating here now - I also need to think about what I would like to have as goals in the next couple of weeks, keeping in mind that my new job will keep me quite busy and my brain will probably be quite tired. So let's see what I come up with. I am on holidays for 1.5 weeks more so I got time to think about it

    I hope you bees are all safe and well! Lots of love from this bee here!

    You're doing awesome on the snacks and sweets front!
    And working out, of course, let's not forget about that

    Might sound superficial, but a healthy skin is what I've been striving for for a long time now.
    This isn't superficial at all. A healthy skin that looks that way is a huge feel-good factor! I know where you're coming from (same problem, kinda) and it's such a massive boost to your self-esteem when your skin doesn't look like nuclear fallout all the time (I'm exaggerating, of course)

    Have a wonderful June, yourself!

    thank you I think it has, I took some days off from working out because it felt like my body wasn't doing so well with me pushing it so much. So fingers crossed it's gone now!

    Sundance haha I know right? I wish I could eat all the time but uff where would I be then? Probably rolling around somewhere ^^

    I didn't do any workouts Friday, Saturday and Sunday because I didn't want to exaggerate and push my body to where it didn't want to go. I'm a bit sad because now my streak is broken and I'll have to start again. However, on the other hand, I think it's good to take a break when my body calls for it. Better now than end up with an injury.

    I started again today, but very softly:

    Monday, 1 June - Consecutive workout days: 1
    Day 3, 30 days of yoga
    Day 3, core and back
    Didn't do the cardio trim today because I didn't feel ready for it yet.


    And with the first of June now here, I should probably do some reflection on my goals that I set a couple of months ago -

    Goal 1: 5 out 7 days a week eating clean.
    I believe I've done this the majority of weeks. I started a bad habit of having frozen pizza once a week but scratched that a week ago. But I do have to say, I've not had any sweets or have uncontrollably snacked for 76 days in a row now

    Goal 2: 5 out of 7 days a week work out
    YES! Definitely did that (with exclusion of last week due to not feeling so well)

    Goal 3: train ankle every single day
    Semi I think the majority of weeks I did it, just when I went for longer walks or moved the workout to the afternoon is when I didn't.

    Goal 4: Meditate 5 out of 7 days
    Nop, completely failed at this. But since I've added 30 days of yoga to my training schedule, I am now on a better path to do this.

    Goal 5: Weigh 60kg by 1 June
    In all honesty - I have absolutely no clue. I do not have a scale at home so I can't check. I've also been comparing measurements of my body and except for my thighs (1 cm less each), there is no difference. And since I am too critical with myself, I don't see much of a difference on my body either. However, I do see a difference on my skin. Ever since I've removed the amount of snacks and sweets that I eat, my skin has had less acne outbreaks, for which I am so so happy! <3
    And that in itself has helped me love myself just a tad more. Might sound superficial, but a healthy skin is what I've been striving for for a long time now. And it's gone hand in hand with caring more about myself which in turn has lead to move self-love. Cheesy, right? But oh so important.

    So with that I would like to close today's entry, wishing everyone a wonderful month of June, with a bunch of self-love <3

    Belated happy badge day

    For some weird reason, I don't mind this slight hunger because it means I can eat when the time to eat comes. I am so disappointed when it's time to eat (like breakfast, lunch or dinner time) and I'm not hungry
    I can relate

    Day 1 cardio trim 💃
    Day 1 back and core💃
    Day 1 of 30 days of yoga 💃

    This was so relaxing! Which might have defeated the purpose of cardio trim but I am feeling like a cold is around the corner do I didn't want to exaggerate the exercise. I very much loved the first day of the yoga programme 😍

    Ankle exercise 💃
    Clean eat 💃I had a little bit too much to eat for dinner but still ate well.
    Meditation 💃 counting the yoga as my type of meditation

    Day 2 cardio trim 🎈 Day 2 back and core 🎈
    Day 2 of 30 days of yoga🎈

    Using random emojis because I feel like it I was very nervous today in the morning because I interviews for a different role today. Yoga helped a little to calm me down.

    Ankle🎈
    Clean eat - dont know yet
    Meditation 🎈

    It's almost Friday!

    Ok, I got it, next plan is:

    Cardio Trip programme - I need to add more cardio in my life because I want to be fit for when I get my scuba diving license (not there yet, covid got in the way, but I understood I need strong strong lungs). Starting with this programme and then I hope to add some running
    30 days of yoga - I think this will actually help me with doing more meditation
    Back & Core programme - I am sitting way too much, working too long hours so I am hoping this will counter balance what I am doing to my poor body

    If you think it's too much, let me know, happy for some feedback I actually wanted to do the Avatar Upgrade programme but it says not suitable for beginners and since my knee was acting up today and my ankles are not steady yet, I am going to avoid that. For now!

    Sitting here in the dark, should probably turn on a light But I am already excited for tomorrow to start a new programme! Ah, don't you love it when you finish one and get to start another?

    Fremen VacTom TheLibrarian Thank youuuuu! It's great to share successes and have you celebrate along I am not even close to getting the same amount of badges you have but I looked at my profile today and it made me smile to see I've come along a little since the beginning of this year <3

    ❌Clean eat - Uff I had a frozen pizza again. I had actually wanted to cut down on those because I'm getting too used to them but I couldn't stop myself, I was in such a hurry to eat something today for lunch.
    ✔️Workout - hmm... semi, I had a swim today (though nothing too heavy), a walk and danced around in my house. I am going to count it, especially because my body needed some rest after AoP
    ✔️Ankle
    ❌Meditation

    I still don't know what to do start from tomorrow! I think I'm going to browse through Darebee's amazing resource library, let's see what I come up with

    ❌Clean eat - Huge burger and onion fries. Not doing that again It was delicious but uff I was so stuffed for hours and I really don't like that feeling. For some weird reason, I don't mind this slight hunger because it means I can eat when the time to eat comes. I am so disappointed when it's time to eat (like breakfast, lunch or dinner time) and I'm not hungry

    ? Clean eat - Not there yet.
    ✔️Workout - AoP Day 60!!!! I AM DONE! Celebratory time! I also realised I had not ticked AoP Part 1 on my profile so I'm getting two badges today
    ✔️Ankle
    ❌Meditation


    I am not quite sure what to do now. I don't want to do another 60 day programme because I got bored along the way which means I take so much longer to finish it. I also want to get back to yoga. Maybe I'll set up a training plan which includes random Darebee workouts plus the 30 days of yoga and/or some wonderful yoga videos. I also need my body to recover a little from the last couple of days of finishing AoP I also want to change the format of my logs to something that will make me excited about updating more regularly... And finally, this weekend marks the end of May which means I will check whether I've reached my goals that I set myself at the very beginning of this thread! Don't actually have a scale but lets see

    Either way, I am happy, it's the start of a new week and the air feels fresh! I hope you're all safe and sound!
