a day in my life

Hi guys

So it’s Friday, and we have Easter holidays here in Denmark. This means I have a chance to get into some healthy routines, adjust, do wedding prep, and clean our home. Today has been very productive yet chill. Yesterday was the same. I’m not being too strict with my habits or plans lately. I’m always experimenting to figure out what is working for me, and it varies a lot depending on how I’m feeling. Usually, this stresses me out; the fact that I don’t have one proper routine and just stick to that forever, but that’s just not realistic for me, I feel like. So now I’m at a place where I just accept that my routines and habits vary at times.

I started out today by scrolling through my phone: social media, emails, messages, etc. Then I stopped myself because I realized I was spending too much time on my phone, especially on Instagram. So, I put my phone away and started a 6-minute meditation session. After that, I wrote in my gratitude journaling.

Thannu sent me a message and a picture of her at the gym, and I thought, “Okay, I should go too.” We promised each other to send pictures and motivate each other, and guess what? It worked. Thanks to her, I managed to go work out. Also, I have a new simple training plan that I need to try out, and I finally got the chance to do it, and it felt amazing. I started feeling comfortable at the gym in Copenhagen, thanks to my personal trainer back then, so I felt comfortable doing different strength workouts. However, this time I had to try the new strength training plan by myself, and I hesitated to go to the gym because it was outside my comfort zone to do these workouts due to my anxiety issues. It’s a new gym, and I just need to get used to it and learn not to care about what others may think, even though it feels like everyone is watching. I’m proud of myself for sticking to the workout plan despite how I felt today.

When I got home, I took a long bath and made myself a late breakfast, which was more like lunch actually. I ate black bread with mackerel, carrots, and hummus, and it was delicious. After that, I started cleaning the apartment, but then I got tired and decided to take a nap. I’m not sure how long I slept, but it was at least an hour, maybe more! 😊

While my boyfriend took charge of cooking today, I quickly went to a Tamil pop-up store to see if they had anything interesting that I wanted to buy. I ended up buying a pair of earrings and some curry powder. When I got home, the food was ready! My boyfriend had cooked roti and chicken curry, and it was absolutely delicious. I was impressed! While we were eating, we watched a Bollywood movie called “Jaane Jaan” starring Kareena Kapoor. It was good and different compared to what I usually watch. The movie revolves around her character and her abusive ex-husband who refuses to let her go and pursues her when she tries to escape. I won’t spoil too much, but that’s the overall main story-ish without giving away too many details.

After some more cleaning and chatting with my sister over FaceTime, we watched another movie, this time with Priyanka Chopra called “The White Tiger.” It was also alright. I don’t think the movies we watched today were like “wow,” but they were both alright.

As for a snack, I ate a protein bar since I was craving chocolate. This protein bar is definitely the best one I’ve tried so far. I’m still new to eating protein bars, so I’m trying to figure out what I like.

And that was pretty much my day today. I’m writing this blog post as the last thing before going to sleep. I hope tomorrow will be just as positive and healthy as today. <3

Goodnight <3
