Okay well new journal time!
Hrmm... Just getting a little bored with seeing that OLLLLLLD journal. I'm very bad at keeping my own journal updated. especially since I work all the time and the journal skins are very confusing to me. So whats new with me? Well I've been working a slight change of life-style. I've been told of some very bad news lately which has spurred me to try and become a more healthier person. I've always been pretty healthy to begin with but this bit of news was very shocking to me. I'm not going to go into details about it but its enough for me to really start thinking about my own health especially since I'm getting to an age where I need to really start taking care of myself.
So what have I been doing? Well... I'm exercising! Trying to get 3.0-3.5 speed on the highest incline on my treadmill. get some squats and crunches in along with some pilates! (that stuff really makes you realize the muscles you never knew existed!!) And I've started doing green juices... juicing carrots, celery, cucumber, green apples, ginger, then blending in some grapes, kale and loads of spinach! turns out pretty good! great way to get fruits/veg in if your not big on those. I've been watching what I eat, trying to stay away from fast foods, preservatives, anything with too much sugar or fats... basically just eating healthy! and I've gone ORGANIC!!!!! bigger on my budget but I figure the more money I spend on buying the things I DO NEED... leaves less money for the things I don't. Which has actually worked out quite well for me! I'm not buying junk like chips or pizza or soda... cuz I'm so focused on buying stuff for my juicing and making healthy foods daily and making sure its all organic.
Another change is now that I'm making myself make time for healthier organic cooking... I'm making lunches for work! I can't eat the foods from the restaurants at my job because of my organic lifestyle change. So I have to bring a lunch where I know what I'm eating. (this helps me save money too cuz OH BOY are those restaurants expeeeeeeeensive!) And because I'm making lunches~~~ Why not make them bento???? So that's exactly what I've been doing this week! I'm pretty proud of myself! I've even gotten to use bento boxes I haven't had a chance to use yet! I have almost a weeks worth of bento lunches, I'm just waiting for my days off to post them all.
Speaking of Bentos, my Group :groupbento-love: is having a Sweets/Desserts Bento contest! Just started yesterday so if your a bento person and want to join, go check it out! I'm going to posting pictures of the prizes on there soon. Also I've been thinking of doing another bento trade... I'm going to the Japanese store this weekend to pick up a few things and I figure why not pick up some stuff for a trade as well? I really enjoyed my last trade and seeing all the neat stuff inside! (which btw I really need to post up the picture of that... sorry demi!!!!)
Does anyone watch a lot of youtube? I've become such a youtube freak! I watch a lot of channels and all the time. I kind of want to start making vlogs too! Maybe make some vids on bento making or perhaps games since I love to play video games... maybe a haul or two. But I'm a little hesitant.... I'm quite a boring person in real life! It would be interesting though if I had a channel with vlogs! anyway yea!
