7 Day Wellness Challenge

DSCF1737

Good morning guys!

Today is the start of my “new life” as I am starting a 7 days challenge to get myself back to a healthy lifestyle. The reason I am doing a 7 days challenge is to not put too much preassure on myself and thereby fail, but instead set my self a goal of 7 days.

I have struggled to be healthy lately in many ways. I have been snacking overly and not eating enough nutritious foods, I have not been drinking nearly enough water and my work out routine has been long forgotten. In addition to that I have been struggling to get to sleep and have a good sleep routine.

By not giving my body the right fuel it needs it has affected other areas of my life. I am starting to fall behind on uni work as I am having troubling concentrating, I feel out of energy, and less happy and I in general dont feel well on a daily basis.

Last week I tried to change my routines, but it fell trough. I dont think I felt motivated enough and it was easy to fall back into being unhealthy after just a day or two. I believe that lifestyles can be quite addictive and that is what I want to change now! My life style.

So in the 7 next days I have decided to stay away from snacks, work out 6 of 7 days and have salad of vegetables with every meal. I will drink between 1 liter and 1,5 liters of water a day and take my vitamins. I will also get up before early and go to bed early, with the exception of the days when I am working late, on which I will go to bed once I get home.

What I am hoping to get out of this are six things:

  1. To get a better health
  2. To feel happier in general
  3. To have an easier time concentrating
  4. To gain HEALTH weight and not unhealthy
  5. To get a better healthier looking skinn
  6. To start a better lifestyle for my self that I can uphold.

I will fill you guys in every day on my feelings and progress and any challenges that I might come across. I hope to inspire some of you and be open about difficulties I will face. It will also be a good motivation for myself to report my progress on the blog. Hopefully it will be a report of successes and not failures!

Well guys, as scheduled I am off on my run and stating the first day of my new healthy life! Wish me luck!

If any of you have some tips, advice or experiences on this please leave me a comment!

Have a super day everybody!

Last Week and a New Focus

Good morning beautiful people!

I am getting ready to head out to work, but before I do that I thought I would give an update and a summary with the highs and lows from the week that just passed.

I have been away for some weeks now. We have had some highs and lows here that I have been working through. But it is all worked through now and I am back to normal, and hopefully will be better than ever!

In the week that was I have worked towards getting myself healthy and feel my best. After a few health scares and feeling unhealthy my focus has gone from heating and working out to look my best, so eating, living and working out in a way that benefits my health.
It is a work in progress and I have had good days and days that I have been less successful but I am getting there!
I hope that in this week I will not have any setbacks and be 100% dedicated to being healthy. I have realized that being happy and healthy is much more important than being thin, or have great skinn or being well toned and that way I feel more relaxed and much happier.

Well, back to the week that was.

High point of the week:
On Thursday Greg took me out for a super nice date! We went to central and ate tapas before going for ice cream. It was great to get to spend some one on one time without any distractions. The food was amazing and the company was even better!
How lucky am I to be with this amazing man!

Low point of the week:
The low point of my week must have been yesterday, when Greg and I was watching the Saints and the Broncos and just as we were getting super excited that they were about to win, the Broncos blocked the last field goal and we lost the game! We were so disappointed!

Surprise of the week:
Trump won the election! Like so many else I am just stunned that Donald Trump won the election in America. I was up watching some of the election and I could not believe he was in the lead. I was even more surprised waking up to the news that he won! Who would have though a year ago that he would actually be president. It just goes to show that anything can happen, so at least that is a good life lesson.

I have in general had a great week, and been getting on track with food, sleep and in general feeling very uplifted and happy.
Having said that I could not get to sleep last night, and ended up with only 3 hours of sleep so I am dreading spending 12 hours as a health care assistant today. Being on such a long shift in a job were you need to be very present for the residents and the people you are looking after is very challenging when being sleep deprived.
However I am determined to keep up a good spirit and just keep in mind that at the end of the day I will get a great night sleep. And keep the coffee coming!

Have a great day everyone!

New Week, Time to Take Action

New week new beginning!

For the past few weeks I have been too slack and unmotivated and not really getting stuff done. I have slept in late when every I can, I am quite sure that I have been eating chocolate for the past 14 days straight and I have forgotten what a gym is.

I can defiantly tell that it is affecting me. My skin is suffering and I feel like I have less energy and worse mood.

But that ends this week!

I really have to get out of this routine of that now, and bring productive and healthy routines back.

Since today is a new week, I have made up my mind to start today, set goals for the week and follow them!

My goals this week is the following:

1) No sweets on weekdays

2) Eat propper meals with nutrients

3) Drink enough water

4) Get a good sleep routine, go to bed reasonably early and get up early

5) Be as productive as I can everyday

6) Work out 4-5 times

Most of today has been spent at uni and I stayed reasonably healthy so so far so good!

I am excited to update you, and hopefully to have a great week!

I hope you also get a great week and that you have had a good start to the week today.
