Yesterday when I was going back home from the gym, I passed by my best friend’s house, and I saw her cousin. I, of course, stopped to have a chat. And daaamn, this girl have changed.
She is my age, she used to weight more than me, and now this chick looks even slimmer than me. And while I was giving her compliments, she stopped me and told me that it is all because of me. Because I inspired her to live healthy and workout often. Because she saw what I was able to achieve and she did it also……
I felt sooo proud! One of my dreams was to inspire others. I hope one day I can change people’s lifes to better ones.

10 shoulder press with 6kg dumbbells
10 swing with 10kg dumbbell
10 squat hold jump (he wanted me to do burpees , instead but I was like “hell no… next time”)
15 crunches at the hyper bench
15 hanging leg rises

How I liked it: It was nice. Not so intense, because I told him in the beginning I wasn’t so much in the right mood. But of course I worked my butt off again. :D Anyways, it was nice. We also talked about what I eat daily. He wasn’t so happy about it, and he gave me some recommendations. Also i decided that i’ll spend some money this month to buy some of the supplements he recommended (like protein powder, and sthg else, i forgot)
I finally found the way to not waste my time. - commit to things
I remember the past 6 months, which I spent abroad “studying” and partying and I hardly even found enough time to do only these two things… But finally I realized that I crave having some order in my life. A lot of my university colleagues there (everybody was foreign also) somehow managed to have a schedule , they managed to combine - studying, partying, working out, going to events, dancing lessons, other lessons… just about everything they usually do in their own countries. They were committed. And they knew how to manage their time.
I, on the other hand, spent time mostly, drinking, smoking, sleeping, and studying (besides going jogging twice and some travelling we did)… My problem has always been that I do nothing… i can literally spend hours sitting somewhere, on the PC usually, doing nothing, even when I know that in the exact same time I can do numerous other things.
What I decided when I came back, was to find things that will keep me busy. Like buying a gym membership, finding a job, going on more events, start going to side lessons. It’s a lot easier to manage time effectively now, since I know that I should do things and go places. Before I just didn’t have things to do, that is why I always felt bad for wasting my time.
That is silly. but i just recently realized that I have been lasting my time, just because I haven’t found things that I’d enjoy doing on a regular basis.

How i feel: Great! Today I finally went to the gym with proper shoes, and I felt the difference. I think I sweated more than usually, because I could perform the exercises more effective. (or is it because my sister was there, and i felt like on a competition, although we did almost completely different workouts) Sweat dropping on the floor ftw :D Today my sister spontaneously came with me to the gym… probably she won;t do it again. I told her to take it easy. But she is always trying to do more, so i think she didn’t like it. After the gym she was feeling tired and angry at the instructor. She told me that she didn’t like the breaks between sets/ Because she doesn’t have those 30seconds to laste of her day.Silly, right?… On the other hand, I always listen to what he tells me and I feel wonderful after every workout. That is the point after all, isn’t it?

the only type of being attacked I am okay with:
last night i had a dream that one of my neighbors (best friend) gets a dog… i was so happy in my dream.. not like if was my business at all :D when i told her she was like ” WTF are u dreaming?”…i guess i just like puppies and i want all the puppies in the world to be happy and loved (when I say puppies , i mean dogs all sizes, ages, and breads… for me they are like puppieees)
Every time I see a dog somewhere on the street i scream “Dogggiieee” , my friends find that hilarious… not to mention the jokes they make about me after when they saw me talking on skype with my dog :D:D
I accepted the offer…. i really hope that everything with the documents will be alright and I’ll somehow reach the destination safe :D
My first wish was Ibiza… but anything was ok
