Healthy habits

Hello!

It’s the week 2 of lockdown here, it was meant to be lifted tomorrow but it has been extended for another week. My routines are completely off, I’m not wasting enough energy throughout the day so when I’m going to bed I can’t just fall asleep as I usually do as soon as I put my head on the pillow, and I’m dreaming alot and I wake up exhausted.

A couple of weeks ago I went to have my blood test done, and it came back last week. My cholesterol was a bit high, not much, just need to make a few changes, but was also lacking in b12, Iron and Vitamin D and my immune system was a bit down.

As I went vegetarian for about 3 months, I really increased my saturated fat I think as I’m not the best to cook wholesome food without meat, so now I’ve started to incorporate meat again – only organic though, and will exclude dairy and unhealthy fats as much as possible instead.

These are now some of my favourite food staples.

I’ve been doing 30 minutes of HIIT workouts in the morning for a couple of days, and tries to spend 30 minutes in the sun too. It’s just really hard with the lockdown as well, I don’t leave the apartment unless I absolutely need too. I just really hope that it will be over next week.

Walking brings me back to myself

Today I needed sun. And today was the perfect day for a bush / coastal walk. Re-connect. Recharge.

The calmness I feel around these surroundings. Around nature.

How grounded how feel when running my fingers through the seashells while listening to the waves.

I’m here.

I’m home.

Sunday

Hello!

On Sunday we woke up a bit later and had a really slow morning before making a move to Lane Cove National Park as I’ve seen they have a tiny waterfall there. As we walked along the river there we passed by a place where you can rent paddle boats (or whatever they’re called) and I screamed out of excitement and we just had. To. Do. It.

So peaceful to just float around the river, even if our legs got quite sore.. The rental time was for an hour but think we were back within 30 and didn’t even go chasing the tiny waterfall afterwards.. Haha.

Tomorrow is the first day off work week, today I have just been cleaning and doing laundry, went down to the pool in the building for a few laps to work on my conditioning as I’ve been a lazy muffin since… Can’t remember so quite a while.

A little update…

Oh dear, where did the time go? It’s been a while since I checked in here. But life has been a little bit of a roller-coaster lately and so much has happened. I got a new job. Summer is here. It’s almost Christmas. The year is almost over. But I’m excited. I feel like life is getting better. Like I’m moving forward.

I feel excited. For a new year. For what life has in front of me. It’s a nice feeling. The feeling of going in the right direction.

Today I’m having a day off. I have been to the gym. Picked up the weeks groceries (and they even added chocolate for my pick-up order, it made me so happy. It’s like they know me from what I usually order and gave me the healthier option) and now I’m laying in the couch going through stuff for work. Yesterday we put up the few Christmas decorations we have. I said “if we don’t even try to celebrate Christmas here, we will never get used to it”. It’s weird to celebrate Christmas in the middle of summer, but we just need to change our mindset.
