Let’s have coffee | 03/2019

Do you know how many times I’ve started a “let’s have coffee with me” post? I’ve started a couple of times already (since January) but I haven’t been able to finish any. Here’s attempt number 202384023402348023.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that, to be honest, there’s really nothing worth sharing in my life currently. My life revolves around work and strengthening and improving my marriage. That’s not a lot of things on my plate but it has put everything else, this blog included, on the back burner. This March I plan to do the opposite. I want my work to be on the back burner. February was a bitch work-wise and a client of ours had the audacity to call me unprofessional. Seven years working and this was the first time I was called that.

If we were having coffee, I’d confess that that moment was a wake-up call for me that I shouldn’t try too hard, lol. I got promoted and have a pretty decent salary – no reason to always be at my best when some clients are just pains in the ass.

Which brings me to some March goals. If we were having coffee, I’d share my health goals this month. I officially didn’t get my period for two months now (thanks, PCOS. no I’m not pregnant). The only reason I can see is the lack of exercise and my on-the-brink of being overweight weight. My plan is to lessen my daily calorie intake (counting calories using Lifesum app) and exercise more often (using the NTC app). I plan to document all that by posting weekly updates here. I only have to lose ten pounds (God, help me) and I plan to achieve this goal by June.

I got motivated when I watched this video by Ashley Choi on YouTube and her 20-day diet. While I was watching, I was very confused about her diet. I think her diet is to not eat. I don’t think that’s healthy but whatever works for her, right?

If we were having coffee, I’d have to be honest and say that this plan annoys me since I was already having my period monthly but I let it go. PCOS sucks so much but I hate myself more because I was already at a good place and I let it go. I try to tell myself that it’s okay but I know really it isn’t. 😦

That’s life basically. That’s what a normal life looks like. It’s boring, ‘no? Which just makes me ask myself what are we really doing here? What’s our purpose in life? What’s the end goal?

  1. I know our everyday life is not perfect but we must be positive, enjoy the small things and keep going! We have exciting days, we have boring days, the important is to enjoy it as never will come back! Keep going and get that March goals 😊 Have a lovely Sunday πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

    1. Thanks for this! ❀ I'm really lacking motivation lately. It's also the reason why I wanted to have goals this month. πŸ™‚


  2. I think your perspective on work is refreshing, especially in this culture where we glorify workaholism and being busy.
    I’m sorry your PCOS is acting up again. I have friends who suffer from that, and they tell me it really is a bitch to live with. I hope your achieve your goalsβ€”I’m rooting for you!

    1. PCOS is very tricky! I get fat easily but losing weight is hard too. There’s no middle ground. 😐 I’ll keep you updated and hopefully I lose some weight this month. πŸ™‚


  3. I think its great ur gonna stop pushing urself at work. I agree ppl are the worst sometimes and when u try so hard it feels like your efforts aren’t appreciated. We need to be more carefree with what we do and only expect the good things to come, i mean, thats how i wanna as i get older hehe πŸ’“
