Health for days journey – May 3rd (update)

Hey there,

Did you have a good day?

How are you?

I’m fine, I had a calm day.

Since I have a few things to show you, lets go straight to my to-do list:

  • Read blogs and comment and be up to date on the ones that I follow; – Still need to do a little of this today!
  • Make a list of all the Awards I need to post; – Didn’t get to it;
  • Unfollow people who never interact with me or haven’t posted in many months, or the ones I always read and comment but don’t do the same for me. I feel bad about this but I spend way too many time reading blogs and people don’t even seem to care that I follow them, so I will only follow the ones I like, the ones that interact with others and myself; – Done, went from following 700 people to following 300!
  • Fold and put away a HUGE load of laundry; – Did about half of it, still need to work on tomorrow;
  • Dry and put away the ton of dishes that I washed yesterday and wash the dirty ones from dinner. Story of my life is laundry and dishes, rinse and repeat! – Done. Not many dirty dishes for tomorrow!
  • Clean the kitchen and the living room, at least; – Cleaned the kitchen, including the oven and dusted the living room. Only need to vacuum living room tomorrow;
  • Take pictures and show you my new dressing table; – Done, will show it below;
  • Wash a few blankets and duvet and pillows; – Only 2 or 3 left to wash;
  • Interact on social media (I always forget to do this. People like whatever I post and I forget to return the attention. This bothers me way too much!! It’s just hard to keep track of everything, you know?) – Didn’t have time for it.
  • Talked to my mom and sister on the phone
  • Answered a bunch of comments and published 3 posts;

Food and water:

  • Lunch: Red lettuce, cucumber and raw onion salad with a little past and ground beef;  One orange; An espresso;
  • Snack one: three of those yogurt/jello thingies. They have about 40 calories each. I didn’t mean to eat 3, I meant to eat 2, but one of them seemed off, so I opened a third one to check it out and then had to eat the three;
  • Snack two: 1 piece of toast, half a mug of milk and coffee;
  • Dinner: 1 piece of toast, some tea with honey and a banana;
  • About 5 cups of water, plus this cup of tea. Not too bad;

I have no appetite today, have no idea why!

I’m grateful for:

  • The amazing weather;
  • Losing weight;
  • Drinking less coffee and milk today and more water;
  • The people that prayed for me when I needed them. Every thing is better now, my family member is still hurting and in a difficult situation, but much better;
  • Talking to my mom and sister;
  • A hot shower;
  • My green clay mask;
  • A happy dog;
  • A clean kitchen and living room;
  • Lovely friends!


My new dressing table:

The dressing table is just Rui’s old desk. I love the color and it fits perfect against one of my bedroom window so I had to re-purpose it.



I bough the mirror and a cheap IKEA blank bench to sit on. Super affordable dressing table. The pictures are not the best, I’ve just realized now. I might take new ones soon.

Some shots of my living room:


I love this towel because my mother-in-law embroidered it for me. She usually does this kind of thing for me as presents and I love them.

What do you think? I know, more pink.

  1. Yay! I didn’t get cut 🙂 And yay to weight loss 🙂 I am starting to get a little jealous of your beautiful house, but I absolutely love the house I have with my girls too. The other day though I would definitely be thrilled to have a bathroom the size of yours. Ours is even smaller. I need to start eating healthier. Some of yours sounded delicious, but I always feel to lazy or forget that the food is there. Here’s to remembering tomorrow.

  2. what a good idea. It annoys me the ones who “follow” for you to “follow ” them then never comment on yours or even when you do comment on theirs they don’t like your comment or say something. I am not sure how many I follow and i read them all and comment and like their posts…..and I get nothing…its frustrating..

  3. I love your little vanity dressing table set up. I really want one of my own but our flat is so day I’ll get one 😃
    Also i love the different shades of pink cushions you got for your couch. They stand out very nicely from the white 🤗

  4. Good for you for cleaning up your home and your following list! If only I was this productive today! I cannot understand bloggers who don’t interact with their readers! But you do a fabulous job of keeping up with all of your many followers 😊

  5. Yay for getting so many things done! It’s always sad to let go of certain blogs, but the reality is that we only have so many hours in one day. One of the things I like the most about blogging is the interaction. Hope you continue to have lovely weather!

  9. Hi Cheila, glad to see that you got a lot done. More importantly that your family is doing better even though the situation has not entirely improved. We must pray and trust that things will get better, so continue to support them as best you could. You used to follow 700 people wow! That is a lot! I totally agree you, this is a community and we should support and encourage each other. Glad to see you’re also trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Keep it up!
