30 day abb & squat challenge: day 17

Today is the 17th day of my challenge. I can't believe I got so far! Some days like day 12 were really hard and some were easy peasy (day 13) but the overall benefit of this challenge is starting to show on my body and now it is way easier to do these excercises than at the begining. Not to mention the great feeling when you get to cross out a day after day. I made it more that half the way!
These last few weeks I kinda got really interested in my health. I started eating better: more vegetables, less chocolate (don't even ask how hard it was to eat less chocolate, I used to live on chocolate!). Of course there were some bad days when I slipped and ate a box of ice cream but there were more of the good days - days when I woke up with determination and went to bed with satisfaction - those days are something I'm proud of. I stopped drinking alocohol with the exception of drinking a glass of wine when I'm out with my girls. I started running again after the 5k marathon I ran last weekend (I finished the marathon, though it was really hot and hard, and I was sooo proud of myself) and I can even feel how much easier it is to jog and how much more toned and athletic my body feels - I really missed that feeling (I'm preparing a post about running by the way!). You know what they say - in a healthy body lies a healthy soul - now I truly understand what they mean by this saying. I'm feeling so much happier everyday and motivated to do all the stuff I need to do. I hope I'll never stop living like this.
In other news: These few upcoming weeks will be my exam weeks at the university. So to get away from all the distractions like facebook and internet overall, I'm going away to live at my grandparents' summer house untill my exams end on the 20th. Not having internet there will be a good thing for my studying but I won't be able to make any blog posts too, what makes me sad. I will only come back for a day to the city when my exams will take place. I'll try very hard to find time and post all the great stuff I have planned for this little space of the internet of mine, but I can't make any promises.
So have happy first days of summer. Make the best of what you have and what you can do. Stay motivated. And work as hard as you can if you need to!

Love, Kamile
