Achievement Unlocked: May 2017

Achievement Unlocked: May 2017

Just before writing this, I was:

Downloading some free fonts. :P

This past month, I achieved:

It was my birthday – not that that’s much of an achievement, but hey, I am still alive. Hahaha.

I tried on my wedding dress! It fits like a glove (save for hemming, which is totally normal for someone of my height), I got some shoes as well, and have been scouting for some jewellery. I also got more invitations sent out.

I went to many meetups, including a couple of workshops where I learned some JavaScript and Ruby. I was really pleased with myself for chugging through it all. If you knew me a year ago, you’d know I bailed on meetups very frequently.

I went to the gym seven days in a row. That was pretty hectic. Yesterday I went pretty hard on the bench press (which I don’t usually do), so this morning I woke up with my chest aching. Success. But that meant I didn’t want to go to the gym as per usual this morning, so I skipped, to let my body rest.

Speaking of the gym, I finally listed my old Lululemon gym clothes on eBay and I’m glad they all found new owners. 😄

I also made some achievements towards my 27 by 27 goals and wrote about them in my blog post Checkpoint #1.

This past month, I learned:

I learned how to build a React component! Thanks Chris. ☺️ And how to do some cool shit with an Arduino.

This past month, I got bored of:

I couldn’t think of anything, but I sure as hell got bored of commuting to and from work. 😦 Not much longer before we find a place and move, closer to the city.

But that’s OK, because I enjoyed:

Buying some new gym pants from Lululemon. They were soooo comfortable I wore them to work. I could probably sleep in them. ☁️

Today, something that made me happy was:

Being able to attend the SydCSS meetup because my friend Isabel had a spare ticket that no one took! It was a great meetup.

Today, something I could have done better was:

I ate two servings of chocolate: a mini Crunchie and a tiny packet of M&Ms. I honestly could have done better and only taken the one. Greedy Georgie.

Tomorrow, I’m going to:

Seriously relax once I get home from work. And have an early night.

In June, I’m looking forward to:

Visiting Perth again :) I will be there for two weeks and hope to have a pleasant time. Again, it’s not really a holiday, as I will be working remotely, but I think that having some space to myself and away from the hustle and bustle of Sydney will be good.

In June, I’m going to make the positive change of:

You know what, I’ve actually been sleeping earlier thanks to the gym tiring me out the more often I go. And I want to keep meditating. I have been using the app Calm as per Pauline’s recommendation. I am on an eight day streak and would love to continue it. It’s making me feel a little more relaxed at night but I want to do it more in the mornings when I feel like I’m in a mad rush.

One thing on my to-do list is:

I’m literally going to take a break and laze and watch a movie or something. I’m going to do literally nothing this weekend to let myself recuperate.

One happy photo from this past month is:

If I had to write a book or record a film about this past month, I would call it:

Life in Progress

After I post this, I’m going to:

Meditate! :)

Happy Belated Birthday, my birthday buddy!

I’ve heard how comfy Lululemon pants are. I wear yoga/gym pants routinely for that very reason. Also, they feel much better around my Endo belly than normal pants – like my work clothes, jeans, etc.

Every summer, we have BlogHer, which is similar to SydCSS, except to moves around each year to different cities. I’ve never been able to go due to scheduling with work or just not enough cash.

Hope you have a nice rest! You deserve it!

7 days in a row?! O.o Wow. That’s amazing. After my yoga challenge, I haven’t made any attempt on being more active. But May was still great! I’m glad your month went well too. I can’t wait to see photos of your wedding dress! Keeping it a secret until the day?

This month I’ll be pretty busy with work, I’m already ready for July, since that month will be a bit slower for me…work wise. But this will still be a great month. :)

The best thing that caught my attention : REACT! It’s a pretty amazing framework, right?

May looks super amazing for you. I wish I could have gone for 7 days a week to the gym too… but with shifting houses, and internship days coming to end soon, it was all very difficult. But I have started a dragbee challenge!! (yay)

Happy belated birthday! 🎂🎈🎉
7 days in a row? Wow. The most activity I’ve done in a row was 5 days of of the 7. I’m on the look out for new gym or running tops at the moment and recently found a pair of running leggings that I love, they fit like a glove and are so comfy to run in.

I’m glad your month went well and your wedding dress fits, I look forward to seeing photos of it and the big day in the future. :-) Do you have much more or plan?

I’m so proud of what you have achieved in this last month, from your fitness goals to learning new languages (I’m currently learning Ruby and Ruby on Rails myself ;)) Always here rooting for you and supporting you girl! You’re doing AMAZING. <3

I'm interested to know how your meditation practices are going! I hit my 365 days this Sunday ^_^
