I sometimes wonder what life would be like if young people weren’t pressured into choosing what they want to do with their life, so early on. From the time they do their GCSEs, it’s kind of expected that they’re choosing subjects that will set them up at a good university and onto a good career path.
Question in point: Why do people need to desperately know what you want to do in life?
I wonder what would have happened had I not gone to university and instead just got a part time job and travelled the world. Would I be worldlier? Or would I just be stuck up and constantly going on about how spiritual my travels were?
Who knows, eh?
Lets not live in the ‘What if?’ but live in the NOW. As mentioned in my previous post, I’ve set some goals for 2015. I am pleased to say they are going well. VERY well, in fact.
#1 Go to the gym more – check
3 times a week, baby! I’m already starting to feel a difference, and I’m only just going into week 3. It also helps that Mutay is my gym buddy.
#2 Eat clean – check
2 weeks ago, I did a food shop and bought loads of healthy stuff. I’ve swapped out white rice for brown rice, quinoa and couscous. I’m eating more greens and I’ve discovered how much I actually love avocado and eggs. Oh, and Ukrainian food. Big up.
This has become my new favourite website: http://paleogrubs.com/
Peep these delicious recipes I’ve cooked for dinner these past two weeks (some improvised, some from Paleo Grubs and some from Kayla Itsine’s nutrition guide.)
I also ordered a steak salad for the first time when going out to eat, which was under 500 calories. Clap for me, pretties. I usually go for a burger. With lotsa cheese.
#3 Travelling – watch this space
There is nothing to report here, not without spoiling things. Excitement is on the horizon, though.
#4 Get organised – check
Actually remembering dates by writing them in my planner. It’s amazing. I’m being really good with saving my money and being more productive, as well.
I’m so damn proud of me.
