So the first half year of 2015 seems to be long gone:). Looking back, I did spend more time to know myself better and started the journey of conscious self – improvement since the beginning of this year. It’s going to be a life long journey but in summery, for the first 6 months I’ve managed to:
Have a healthier diet
My super power blender gets a regular workout nowadays. I bought it at the beginning of last year, when my wishful thinking was to have smoothie every morning. Of course it only happened once. That blender then retired to the cabinet for the rest of the year. Now I have smoothie for breakfast 2 -3 times on average and I started to plan our meals ahead. As a result (I think?), my skin tone is less dull and dry. My mornings are pretty productive.
In the past, apart from my very occasional yoga class, I hardly exercise (or move). Now I’ve incorporated pushups, plank pose and skipping rope into my weekly routine. I’m excising at least 2 -3 times a week, for 30 minutes each session. I know it’s still not enough but at least there’s consistency. A lot people do 5 times a week, 1 hour at least for each session. Wonder what I’ll look and how I’ll feel with that much excise? So that’s what I’m aiming for eventually.
Be more disciplined
I used to be an ideas (wo)man. Still is, but I cut back the time of daydreaming about ideas and take more actions now. The conscious self improvement routine is going to be a life long journey. Sometimes I keep thinking I’m the laziest person in the world: I need so much sleep: I’m so afraid of pain and I can’t resist the temptation of food.
But there’s always hope and it’s never to late to change for better. I’m comfortable and confident to say that some of the good habit will stay with me from now. There will be so much more to come!
Cheers to the second half year of 2015:)
