In less than a month, it’ll be less than a year since the MCO in Malaysia began. So much has changed during this period, and staying indoors almost 95% of the time does things to your mind. So I ended up being physically active to pass the time and help my mental health. This has also led to me buying quite a bit of fitness related items.
I talk a lot about my fitness experiences on this blog because it made such a big impact for me. The progress has been rewarding, especially since I hit 89kg after years of being over 90kg!
But oh boy, talking about how much I spent on fitness related items sure feels pretty daunting.

It’s a new year! And you know what that means: new year resolutions!
With that said, I admit I’m not crazy over the whole “new year new me” mantra. After all, nothing magically changes when a new year rings in. But I can understand the hope it brings; of wanting to make new changes, of starting on a clean slate, out with the past and in with new possibilities!

Everyone participating in the challenge had been amazing and very supportive. Which was why by the end of the four weeks I actually succeeded in making some significant changes.

I have been working out for a while now, for roughly more than a year, with probably a combined two months break. The experience has been the most interesting for me thus far, which is why it comes to no surprise that I would eventually want to share my experience on this.
But I suppose it’s odd that I want to share something negative about it first! Haha!

There was a time in my journey of dealing with depression that the issue of resentments bared itself at me. I became aware that I was being resentful because I realised I was replaying in my head all the bad things the people around me, and those who left, had done to me.
I want to make it clear, though, that being resentful and being hateful are two very different things. Being hateful means hating others and wishing ill, but resentment means bearing a lot of pain and anger by replaying scenes in our heads that makes us feel that way.

I recently read a book called Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin that’s all about how you can develop better habits to get your life back in order. I’m honestly really bad with self-help books as eventually they tend to get preachy and it’s hard to find it relatable.
