I still haven’t found what I’m looking for

by U2

Hey guys!

Happy 2016 people! Have you ever felt like somethings missing in your life although you pretty much couldn’t ask for more in your life? I am at this kind of point in my yet still young life. Maybe that’s my nature, to keep looking. Maybe someone by my side? It’s definitely NOT kids, I can tell ya that!😀

However, quite a lot has happened, yet again. I really aim for more posts this year! I’ve been to Denmark, England and Spain in 2015 and had a wonderful Christmas as well as NYE.

So I basically wanted to keep you updated on whats been going on.

Its been a year now, that I am with my new company. Yey, time to celebrate huh? Meaning this year I am planning a longer time off. I wish or ask the universe to supply me with enough opportunities to acquire enough resources to take a whole month off. Yes. You read right. A whole month. May to be exact, since here in Germany you get a couple of bank holidays, so you can save PTO days🙂. Genius! I also was looking for a route to travel during my time off and fell in love with Africa. East coast to be exact. Mid-east. Kenya, Tanzania and Zanzibar. Sounds pretty awesome right? Currently it looks like I cant afford it, but keep reaching for the stars right, so I will be working on that. In case my plans do not work out at all, I will probably do some super last minute to wherever that is sunny and warm.

I rearranged my closet a little bit and want to sell a couple of things, too. My wardrobe is mainly filled with things I wore 10 years ago. Some of them dont event fit me anymore. The girls will probably know the problem. Are some of you on Kleiderkreisel? I will probably sell some items on there or on ebay. Or do you think you would be interested? Should I sell them on here?😀

So many ideas, so little time and only occasional motivation. About the losing weight not feeling comfortable.. I am still working on that. I got a gift card for the swimming pool and intend to go a lil bit more regularly. You know swimming tones the body pretty well.

I will probably try a video blog sooner or later this year, since it is always me being lazy to write down everything and I really wanna be in touch with you guys, hear your comments and thoughts too🙂

Furthermore I also bought a couple of new dresses that I would like to show you asap. I do have pics of them already, but just the I-will-try-n-see-if-they-fit-type of pictures.

So here are a couple of impressions of the last few weeks also of my baking „skills“

Looking forward to your comments.

Thanks for reading!

Hi guys!

It’s been forever! And as usual.. still haven’t made up my mind whether to write in English or in German. German is my native tongue though, I don’t know if I have ever mentioned that.

Anywho, as I am listening to the Common Linnets and their beautiful song calm after the storm, I am reminiscing a little bit and thinking that it’s time for a change. I don’t know how many things I missed updating you about, new job(s), apartments, people etc.

Did you know that they say that your body and mind undergoes a substantial change every 7 years? Who’s they? I forgot actually. Somebody told me that. Supposedly even your taste can change, think about it. Since I am 28 now and about to become 29, uh oh… I figured that I need a set of new goals, some more short-term but good for the long run. Like I wanna have visited Africa before I am 30 or something like it. So that’s next year. November 26th 2016 will be it, to see if I can challenge myself.

First of all.. as you might have noticed through my not so frequent writing, I am pretty much as lazy as anyone can get. If there is a easy way out, I usually prefer it. My hostmom once told me „The easy way, is not always the right way“, which is so true.

So I recently took a pic of my outfit, but I wanna make a change in my blog, too. It should not only be about „fashion“. Sure I still try to dress nicely, but as I get older sometimes I just prefer something that is comfortable. Do you know that feeling? Ideally it is both very stylish and comfortable. Like one of my new business dresses, that I will show to you guys later. Very stretchy, very basic black and white, but so elegant. Love it.

Back to the topic…😉 I wanna make a change of lifestyle sort of and make exercise or at least not sitting on my butt the whole day a habit. I have been browsing around Pinterest – follow me here – and found that what felt like a million people lost like half their weight and look amazing within a timeframe of a couple of months to a year. Very inspirational!! I suggest you do the same if you are thinking about the same. Makes sense, right?

Having said that, I know myself and I know that I do not work well on „can’t diets“. Can’t have carbs, bread, sugar, milk, meat…whatever.. I can’t have Can’t diets. My body starts a riot and doesn’t lose a single pound and then when I binge a lil on what I crave, bam… there goes the pound or more. My craving is more built on taste anyways. I am a mixed eater I would say. I don’t need much, but I need sweet as well as savory during the day or I will feel like I have missed something. Don’t get me wrong, I also enjoy these 2.000 calorie desserts as much as you might do😉 But I have to limit myself with the portions there. To me being able to enjoy food and different tastes and reaching for that taste orgasm is directly connected to a high standard of life quality. Usually it is not the store bought kinds of food that give me the most pleasure I have to say. I don’t think there is a proper word in English to describe the „geniessen“. I guess, I think of myself as some sort of connoisseur, but only to my own demands for culinary bliss. That sounds pretty fancy, I reckon😀 Culinary bliss is what makes me happy, but so does being outside while the sun is shining. Today I think I rode my bike for two hours, without music, too, which very unlike me.

So before I bore you guys to death: I am planning to take pix of food that I make and eat, of course, and uploading it and keeping track as good as I can of my exercise and body change, if there is any. I will try to keep it up, at least as long as my roommate’s gone. Having only to care for yourself, makes it so much easier, to eat only when you are really hungry.

I already took some pictures and so far I am feeling rather motivated and committed to my cause. One very important reason why I really wanna do something now is, that I feel that it is starting to affect my health. I was fine with my weight and my looks, but now that it’s not getting any better, but it feels like it’s getting worse, I need to do something.

My questions to you: Do you feel the need to achieve culinary bliss? If so, how do you do it? How do you guys stay motivated or do you just love exercising for itself?

Looking forward to your comments. Please let me know, if I should write in German, too! Thinking about being more active on my YouTube Channel, too. I am a web prostitute (as my friend called me once) meaning that I am basically a member of every community.

Times are a-changin‘

Hey people,

again it’s been a while. As somewhat of an excuse: I’ve been on vacation in Southeast Asia for one month. Yes, one month. Sometimes you can get lucky even if we live in a society that is living by the maxime to be living to work and not the other way around.

I chose this title by Bob Dylan because my life has changed yet again and at the moment I have a lot of time to spend on my backyard for example. I am currently looking to change my professional perspective a little, but it is still work in progress. I’ll keep you guys updated what’s about to come or not.

Meanwhile I intend to spend more time on my blog as well. I am actually thinking about going to videotape each post. It would make everything a little bit easier, but I am not sure yet. What do you think of those video blogs? I think it’s kinda cool. Though some of you might love to read blogs and read in general, others get turned off by a lot of text, so why not make a video instead? We will see, or rather you will😉

Anyhow, as I mentioned I have been working on my backyard quite a bit. Before I went off to Asia I planted a lot of stuff, and made sure that I will have some kind of lawn when I return and I did. You can see that in the pictures. The most recent is that I changed some plants around and made another concrete fencing around the berries and my cherry tree. We will see if the raspberries and everything else will still bloom after that, I am a little worried.

Apart from all the gardening, I have been enjoying to be able to wear what I want lately experimenting a little bit again and being a little bit more daring than the last couple of months. So on the day I wore the outfit in the picture, I went to a lil sports event, as a spectator and somewhat cheerleader. Only to find out that the one I cheered for didn’t even see nor hear me, although I was yelling my lungs out. I guess he was in the zone. The thought counts right?🙂

Well, the sun was shining and I am as tanned as can be after Southeast Asia so I thought I’d go a lil bolder. Neons & pastels. I really like that combo I have to say. It gives it some kind of sporty feel. What do you think of that combo?

Important News: I am starting to sell some pieces of my wonderful closet. You can find me on Kleiderkreisel.

By the way guys, if you want to follow me on Spotify. You probably noticed by now, that almost all my posts have a reference to songs I like. So check out my playlists. I would love to see what you like to listen to. Remember spotify is free on a basic account.

So here the pix. Let me know what you think🙂

Thanks for reading
