Hey everyone! 🤍 Today I’m talking about what I did in the month of January! I feel like every year for me, except for this one, January has always felt like such a long month! Then the next months just keep going by faster and faster. Did January go by fast 🏃♀️ or slow 🚶♀️ for you??
Starting off with the New Year, I was in Chicago! Sadly, I had a bad experience this New Years. Which is unfortunate. My boyfriend and I went out to eat some sushi. 🍣🍱 It was delicious, but my throat started to close up. It was sooo weird to me because I didn’t think I was allergic to anything and I still don’t know if I am or not. I just kept drinking water more and more and I could feel my throat getting closed up even more! I started to get chills and my stomach started to turn! Of course, it was 11 PM! So, nothing was open! I called my mom panicking because I had NO IDEA what to do!!! I was freaking out. We walked back to our hotel and once we got straight into the room, I was on the toilet for the rest of the night! 🤢😷💩 It probably didn’t help that we drank A LOT before we went to get sushi, but I wasn’t blacked out or drunk. 🤪🍾🥂 It was going to come out both ends. (Sorry TMI) I spent so much time in the restroom, my boyfriend had to come in and check on me to see if I was okay or not. Sadly, the night ended and thankfully by the morning I was feeling better! I still don’t completely know what happened. I don’t know if I’m allergic to something or if I got food poisoning. It was such a strange experience! (Here is a picture of me before we went out, not knowing what was going to happen to me. 😂😭)
Here is a picture the day after what happened to me!
Moving onto the next couple of weeks. A brand called Gleamin sent me a product, which was the first ever brand to do that! So, that was super exciting! Go check them at! https://gleamin.com
I’ve been really challenging myself this year because I always say that I’m going to do this and that, but I usually never do. Which I’m getting sick of my own shit because nothings happening and it’s no ones fault, but mine. Like saying I’m going to get in shape. I’ve been saying that for like the last 4 years, but it never happens. So this year I’m really trying to hold myself accountable to that. 🏃♀️💪 I’ve been trying to workout at least 3 times a week and trying to eat healthy. 🥗 I have a really bad habit of eating anything and everything I want! 🍔🍟🍕🍤 Food is just soooo comforting! Also, I’m trying really hard to not procrastinate as much. I get really locked into my phone and I’ll catch myself just scrolling through social media, which is THE DEVIL! 😈 Because time goes by SO fast 🏃♀️ and you don’t even realize it. So, I actually set timers on my apps ( which you can do if you have an IPhone. 📱 It’s through screen time.) So, I can basically only go through my apps for 5 mins and then it’ll remind me to get off. 📵 This has been such a huge help because I swear I could be watching mukbangs and dumb videos all day long!
I’ve been really trying to get creative and trying to take more pictures 📸 and creating more videos 📹 and blogs. 📝 It’s just something that keeps me moving and I love taking pictures and video. I have a love- hate relationship with editing though. 💔 I love testing out my creative ability because I really believe that we all have a creative mind, we just need to open it. Which I’m still in the process of doing. 💘
I have been writing down my everyday activities this month on my notes app on my phone. 📱 I really love doing this. Just to see what I do with my time during the day and to see how I felt and I can go back and reflect on what happened. This has actually been super super therapeutic 💆♀️ for me and I really hope you try it out yourself too! It’s just like a daily journal that I do. I personally like typing more than writing. Lol, mostly because I think my handwriting looks like crap and my hand cramps up really fast. ￼￼￼🤚 It can be time consuming, but I love it. I usually do it before I go to bed. Some days I write a TON and other days. It’s like 3 sentences. Haha. 😝￼
I finally went and got my eyes checked to get new glasses. The last time I got my eyes checked was like 6 years ago… hahaha. 👓
I’ve also been to the dentist like 3 times. Which sucks booty! I hate the dentist so much!I had to get a cleaning, a filling, and a crown put in. Sadly, I have to go again next month because they have to put in my final crown. Which is basically like a fake tooth. Lol. The aftermath was painful as ever. My whole entire face was so sore and my gums ached. I was icing my face with some veggies because we don’t have an ice pack. Lol 🦷
Surprise, not surprise, I freaking rolled my ankle once again! I tend to roll my on my ankles a lot and therefore they bruise super badly. Thankfully, they never break or sprain. But it’s still painful to walk on. 🦶
This might not seem like much to some people, but for me, I feel soooo good where I am and I’m really excited to see what’ll happen in this this year! If you haven’t checked off anything from your New Years resolution, no worries! 😁 There’s always time to start! One of my favorite stories is about Colonel sanders, the man who created KFC. 🍗 He didn’t even become successful until he was like 70 or something, so don’t sweat it! ￼
Hope you guys are having a phenomenal year so far! Let’s get this bread y’all! 🍞
