Tired of emotional breakthroughs one day and falling back into bad habits the next day, I find that, after all, life is okay. It’s not about walking around every day being happy to be me and, but coping with everyday’s little struggles, accepting my own choices and not feeling like the world’s collapsing because of something that didn’t turn out as planned. I don’t like melodramatic people, so why be one?

How I did it: I went from 0 to 20 push-ups in just a couple of months by using the 100 push-ups program. I learned that going on to 30 would be a much greater challenge, and on the way I lost my motivation and focused on other things instead. Then in january this year I started following the old Stronglifts 5x5 program, which has 3 sets of push-ups in it, where you do as many as you can on all 3 sets. In the beginning I was struggling with doing 2… Read how I did it…
How I did it: I'm trying to stop spending all my time in front of the computer and I think quitting Facebook is a good step towards breaking free. I used to appreciate getting to know about events here and there, but I figured out I spent most of my time just updating my status or looking at my friends' profiles. I hope getting rid of this time thief will make me more productive. Read how I did it…
How I did it: Been thinking about doing it for a long time, but I wasn't sure if my face could "do" a short hairstyle because my facial features aren't that feminine, and I'm tall and flat-chested as well, so I'm afraid of looking too masculine. And I guess that now that I've done it, I look more like a boy. Anyway, my hair had to go because I was so tired of it and it didn't look healthy. So now I'm going to eat well, take care of my hair and hop… Read how I did it…
Still struggling to focus my energy on the things that are most important to me.
1. Cancel my credit card.
It cost my extra money just to have it, and even more when I use it. Also, there’s no point in spending money I don’t have.
2. Get all my papers from the university
A year after graduating, I still haven’t had this fixed. Time to get it done, if I’m gonna apply for a job.
3. Lose 5 kilos (to 65)
It would do wonder for my self-esteem.
4. Get a pair of glasses.
I’ve been putting this off for too long…
5. Find a job.
Because having money makes life easier.
6. Not care so much what other people think.
Everyone have their opinion. But why should I let other people dictate my life?
I’m still struggling with this, I have no idea what I should wear and I wish I knew someone who could give me some guidance. I have a weird body shape, I’m tall and look relatively slender, but a long back and short legs, relatively musclular arms (because of weight lifting), a slim waist and muffin tops even when I don’t wear jeans (need to get rid of that excess fat). So I don’t really know how to sort that out. However, I think I want to have a classic and timeless style, and a wardrobe consisting of mainly items of good quality that suit me well and can last me at least a few years.
