This blog is written from experience. I am not a coach. I just write blogs on my reflections and if you would like to learn more then please read on.
How to Live Your Best Life is not about living in perfection, it’s more to do with accepting where you are at now and how you can make it the best living experience. Here are my rules:
1) Live your dreams and goals
I notice that whenever I have a thoughts in my head, my brain is subconsciously and sometimes consciously telling me that something needs to change. Everything happens with a reason and thought behind it. Be a leader in thought, happiness and action because in most cases you are going to be in control of your own perception, and horizons. Think deeply (not too deep) and execute that ambition when you are ready.
2) Acknowledge the bad and remove it
If you know there’s a problem or a bad feeling your best way to accept it for what it is to move on from it. Whether it’s a friend, a close companion or a bad scene, we live and we adapt. You have to be honest with your dearest thoughts and honestly stay clear from making that negative experience take over again. If someone or something is not serving you well then you should challenge it by moving all the way away. Distance yourself from bad energies.
3) Talk to your network or friends
There’s no doubt that talking to people is a highly effective way of being your best self because they are there for a purpose. They know how you work (well some of them). Friends and support networks are there to help you to take extra steps. Yes you might hold the key to someone’s future with one sentence or tip so make sure you always give as well as take from others because random acts of loyalty can bring you a step further to a space of enjoyment and life fulfilment.
4) Treat yourself with respect
Always shine. Like Rihanna says “Shine bright like a diamond.” I think this speaks volumes for how I think as a person (haha). Allow yourself to visualise and feel like that better person you want to be because believe it or not, if you don’t give yourself that internal power to scope out your horizon then you are missing your future. Be kind to yourself. Know your values as well as limits.
5) Think like an icon
Allow yourself to look and feel like a superstar. I’m not even joking. I believe that we can all feel amazing if you think like one. I’m not saying copy exactly what your role models are doing but try to be originally unique so you know when it comes to feeling great you’ll tick every box.
A fact of life is that well-being reflects my own character, behaviour, health and happiness. My health hasn’t always been a vision of clear warmth. How I feel is dependent on my humanity, concepts and needs as this affect part of my knowledge and thoughts.
For me, sometimes I wonder why the world spins like a thunderball of wildness and while there are my dreams and hopes I have to imagine and picture that how I live is determined by the climate of secureness within the air. It is like the pace is under a movement of natural intuition of a mind and the cycle and flow of being in a sensorial space.
How can thoughts be so deep? Thinking too much is positive or negative? In my honest opinion it is the biggest issue when I reflects on my own horizon too much. Such as my foreseeable future and my connections because in all honesty it can make me guarded and alone with myself. Why must my sensory and overloadness cloud my judgement and procedures?
Going too much into the long term vision can make my concepts so imperfect and boring because I dream too big and I want things to happen but I go off to another direction where things are pending in the frame but aren’t happening. I would say this is down to over-ambition and lack of perserverance and it keeps me guarded with an amazing imagination/congition.
Do you believe that what we imagine can become the scene or is it a fact of the social compass? To be continued.
It is not always easy. We can get lost amongst the wind of things. The flakes, the stems and air that we breathe is a metaphor of our own telling. I do feel like I am fed with labels and accords… I guess you could say I have a guard up a lot. It is a personal and sociological thing that comes from the dusts that we have to sweep away sometimes.
Human and nature comes from the grass of an everyday delightful smile that becomes reality from truth and honesty. If we are all in this ship together then we must be co-operative with the functional feels that we have to challenge and battle. I sometimes feel singled out and a thought of oppression can dwindle from within but I don’t let this foot stop working because it helps me to come out and celebrate my creative self and being.
I have gone through many challenges and battles. These two words speak words and wisdom. It’s how we look at things that matters. I am writing this blog to talk about what is going on inside for me. I may wake up with a mysterious sense of grit but I know that things can only get better.
Everyday, I feel like I am going through a spiritual sense of enlightenment vs entrapment because I have to find more peace to understand the recollections of my daily thoughts. I am a true believer of ‘higher thinking’ and how what you think is how you act. If you let bad things into your window of opportunity and seeing, then you let in bad troubles ahead which ultimately opens the doors for a rocky road. I take every single day with pride. I respect my days and my everyday accordances. It’s important to BE YOURSELF.
Comfortability is something that I work on. I have to open myself because I know that this life that we live is a perfect one for a perfect dream ahead because we have to say things as it is and accept what is going to happen and for what it is. I think this is why I have a tight social circle especially because I am working on creating valued connections and appreciating interesting friendships for the present future ahead.
I want better friendships because over the years my friendship numbers have decreased for a reason. At the moment, I am working on my own work needs and to support my future travel goals. I will make a better wealth and meet interesting more like-minded people. And you never know, maybe even find a perfect partner. Who knows…dreams are possible?
For anyone reading and hearing this, I hope that you realise that it’s okay to be beautiful and feel a sense of loveness. This year will be easier once the boat ships more east and towards the next destination. I motivate myself more and more and to surround myself with more. I am working on hobbies and interests at the moment because I think this is what helps me dream a truth. Hobbies such as dancing, singing and language learning and personal fitness.
I want the rest of this year to be a lovely one and for more dreams to be sold into the reality of everyday challenge, thought comfort and success and to be sunken into a golden leaf of tranquillity. May good things steer ahead and now.
Disclaimer: I am not a fitness specialist and my diet is not the only way of dieting. This blog is purely a reflection of my own experience and what I do on a daily basis to stay healthy.
If you’ve been following me since May, you’ll know that I set myself a daily diet challenge. My aim was to stay within a certain amount of calories and to track my nutrition everyday. Before I explain more about the ins and outs of my current diet, I’d like to share my overall progress so far…
On May 16th, I weighed 92.5kg (14.6 stones) and my body-fat percentage was at 23.8%. 25 days later (June 10th), my body-fat percentage is now at 20.9%. This was the result of a healthy diet and exercise routine. My fat mass reduced by 12% (fat tissue dropped from 22 to 17.9 kg). All in all, I lost 4.1 kg of body fat. It’s a really positive result for me because I’ve always struggled with my eating habits but sometimes you’ve got to start somewhere…
Before I talk about my diet. I want to explain what a low-carb diet means to me. From my experience, when I started, it was looking at my daily carb intake and reducing this number. 50 – 100g of carbs per a day is my ideal rate. Although, I also tried out a Ketogenic diet for 2 weeks which meant that I consumed 20g of net carbs. Net carbs are total carbs – total fibre. I will explain Keto shortly. It’s about making sure that I don’t have a carb surplus, a state when the body stores these excess carbs later on as fat.
To lose body fat, I’ve been keeping my calories below 1,500 a day (although calorie counting on a Ketogenic diet is slightly different). I include healthy fats within my meals. Chicken, salmon and tuna are really good nutritious dishes. Snacks-wise, I eat pecan nuts, avocado or almonds because they are natural, healthy sources of food with health benefits.
I normally cook with olive oil or coconut oil as this is a better oil to cook with. I avoid rice or pasta, but if I do eat this, it’s normally brown rice or wholewheat pasta. I normally try and keep my plate green and include veggies like spinach, kale, spring onion, etc… I include low-carb fruits, such as avocado because it makes me feel more full and it has a range of benefits on the body.
Exercise is important too. Instead of waiting for a bus or a train, I normally walk to my designated location. I have a pedometer on my phone which tracks how many steps I’ve taken and tells me how many calories that I have burnt. Skipping is really good too because it burns fat all around the whole body. I also dance once a week which burns approximately 555 calories for 80 minutes.
So I haven’t posted any dance videos for a while on here so I thought I’d share the routine I did tonight. It’s progress after all. Let me just say… calories were well and truly burnt today😩😩 The quick footwork was a mission and a half. Still learning though as we all do. I owe it to my dance peers who really do motivate me to give it my best energy. For me, dance empowers you to forget about things (that half of time don’t matter) and focus your energy on enjoying time with yourself. 🕺🏽 #beginnersstreetdance #danceclass #danceprogress #hobby #shortdanceroutine
I balance out the cardio with strength exercises within the gym. Some of the muscle training exercises that I practice are the following: sled push and pull workout, bench press and cable chest press. Sometimes, if I’m at home, I do push ups, abdominal crunches or leg lifts and this is because my initial focus was to reduce my belly fat.
So many people have asked me what this is. It’s not simple to explain but I’ll try my best. A ketogenic diet is a diet that forces the body into a process called ketosis, whereby fats are burned instead of carbohydrates for use as energy. In order for the diet to work, you have to consume high amounts of fat, moderate amounts of protein, and very low amounts of carbohydrates. When you are on this diet, it is important to keep your carbs below 20g, otherwise it is not effective. So all in all, you eat mainly fat to burn fat. Sounds wierd right? But if you want to know more in detail, there are some useful guides all around the web. It focuses less on calories and more on the fat, protein and carb ratio.
I will keep monitoring my diet as it appears to be effective. I will keep exercising, even if it’s just going on a 20-minute walk or jogging for 10 minutes. I will probably do another blog post on my fitness in the near future so do keep a look out on my socials below.
