On My “Act of Disappearance”

Hey, GUYS!

I have TONS of things to do today, my “to-do list” is enormous, but I just can’t take it anymore…

I need to BLOG!

Hahahahaha. I’m serious, guys! I missed y’all Alegre

You’re probably wondering why did I stop in the first place. Well, besides being SUPER busy with school-related stuff, my computer died Smiley triste

I know, terrible, right? And (almost) all of my pictures were there! Argh.

Thankfully, I have Mom’s laptop to rely on. Thanks, Mom Alegre

(Have I mentioned that she’s on honeymoon/vacation with my stepfather? They first went to Berlin, but they’re curently in Paris! Doesn’t she look gorgeous?)

So, let’s move on the fun stuff.. What did I miss?!

I know Gabriela travelled to London and met two lovely ladies: Carrie and Freya!

I’m also aware that Emma has learnt an important lesson while recovering from her injury – a Medial Stress Syndrome. {By the way… you’re AWESOME, girl! I’m sure you’ll get better soon and that you’ll join the running club in no time! You can do it, love! Smiley de boca aberta}

But, apart from that… NADA! Fill me in, people!

I wish I could stay and chat (write – you get the point), but it’s almost midnight and I gotta go to bed immediately!

So these are just some recent pics I took… Some weren’t really good, so – sorry!  I promise I’ll try my best to take more good-quality pictures Alegre

3, 2, 1… go!

As you guys may have noticed, I have a liiiitle Whole Wheat Banana Pie problem…

I mean… at least it’s healthy, right? It has bananas, oats, it’s whole wheat…

But, most importantly… It’s DELICIOUS!

I wish I could send you guys some WWBP right now!

As soon as I find a way to freeze and send it… I swear I’ll do a giveaway Alegre

Now, bed’s calling!

This time’s true – I’ll be back!

XOXO,

G.

Life’s What You Make It

I might be starting my post with a Hannah Montana quote…

But it pretty much sums up what I’ve learned on the past weeks.

First of all, hey everyone!

I’m sorry I left you for so long. I travalled as soon as my tests were over, and then time flew by… And here I am today. Trying to write a post about how I’ve been doing. Haha.

Oh, well. It turns out that my grades weren’t so good this bimester. Which made me pretty upset for a few days.

I’m actually glad I wasn’t able to post when I first got my report. It would’ve been a pretty depressive post. And, trust me – you don’t want to see me acting like a major Debbie Downer. I can play that part pretty well, if you let me.

It’s ok, though. I mean, grades weren’t so hight –  so what? Grades don’t define me. I’m much more then a bad grade in physics. Plus, there’s always the next bimester to dominate. 2nd bimester, beware – I OWN you! 🙂

Onto more exciting news, I’ve been attending English classes twice a week for a month now, and I’m loving it! It feels so good to be able to speak English and not be stared at. I absolutely LOVE English!

Recovery-wise, it’s been hard. I know they say that, when our bodies reach a healthy weight, they’re likely to mantain that weight… But that hasn’t happened to me yet.

Numbers say I’m at a healthy weight. But, apparently, my body doesn’t get that. My weight fluctuates a lot. I mean, literally. I can gain or loose about 3kg every week. And it all depends on how much I’ve been eating. It’s so annoying… my pants fit me, don’t fit me, then fit me again. Mom doesn’t want to buy me new clothes – she probably thinks I could afford to gain more… But I don’t want to. I’m done with the “eat, eat, eat” mentality. And everyone’s commenting on how great I look – they say I’ve gotten my “healthy glow” back. And I’m not even annoyed by those comments! I don’t consider those “real compliments”, but I no longer feel “atacked” or hurt.

Hopefully, it’s just a matter of time.

Until then… I’ll go with “fake it ‘till you make it” 😉

Food-wise… I’ll let you guys see for yourselves!

I promise to be back as soon as possible, but as you can probably tell, studies will be a big part of my life until July! Wish me luck, peeps 🙂

See you all in a bit!

XOXO
