Lately, I’m repeating activities on a daily basis. It hasn’t been pretty eventful this three weeks vacation (except for some spontaneous plans that happened - thank God they did) and I roughly have five days left before everything goes back to its normal phase: battling with my alarm clock at five in the morning, having scrumptious breakfast (because I wake up very, very late during vacation and I only get to eat brunch), struggling with the morning heat, traffic, and the crowd rushing to school or work, boring lectures and the school workload - oh please.
I’m not complaining tho. In fact, I’m quite proud of myself for keeping up with starting to live a healthy life this summer. Isn’t it ironic that the ones who give care to people around him isn’t caring enough of his own self? It has come to the point that I realized how irresponsible I was of my own living: not habitually exercising and sometimes skipping meals (thanks to people who constantly tell me I awfully gained so much weight) Now, I’m attending gym three to four times a week and I see that there’s definitely no time wasted in workout hours. I just wish school won’t stand in the way.
Relative to how draining and painful in the body this can get is the sense of fulfillment. So far, I’ve lost 7 lbs in the process! It was really hard at first because I never assumed how tempting it is to eat a lot after sweating off - you know the burned calories and stuff that you eventually have to replace; but I keep on reminding myself that all these things won’t pay off if I won’t be disciplined.
Aside from working out, I’m still trying to keep up with my 66 Films to Watch goal. I’m on my 23/66 film and I’m really glad that aside from having fun watching these films, I’ve learned and realized so many things in life!
and I still have this film (+ the few remaining shots in the camera) to finish over the summer. I wish for another summer getaway. Unplanned things are always the best!
