Sunday girlfriend funday

Do you like Sundays?

I mean, if you work and don’t like your job, you probably have a love-hate relationship with Sundays, am I right?

I used to feel a mix of “Than God I don’t have to work today” and “How is it Sunday already? I didn’t finish all of my weekend tasks, haven’t done anything that fun and tomorrow I’m off to a 60-hour work week”. Is this your reality? If so, I tell you: Leave all the shit undone and take the rest of the day to yourself. You deserve it. You’ll never catch up on laundry. N-E-V-E-R. Especially if you have kids so… Might as well let it go. Take the rest of the day and do something you love, give your body and mind some love and care before you tackled yet another week. I don’t know shit and my advice is not worth much but you know you want to do it. You just need to know you deserve it. Enough with my Dr. Phill crap.

I’m actually having a nice Sunday.

I’ve had leftover cupcakes for breakfast. With coffee. Yum! I’m about to go get ready and go have dinner with some of my favorite people, my girlfriends. It’s girls night. Not quite. Just dinner. Tomorrow is a work day. Not for me, obviously. You know I don’t work right now (although I’m always busy, have no idea why or even how. It too this time to rest and I have yet to spend a day on the couch during the week). I’m in desperate need of some girl time, so I’m excited. We’ll probably bitch about everything, curse life for being so hard and gossip about people we know. Just being honest. I’ll make sure to stay away from dessert, though. I have had so much sugar in the last couple of weeks days that I might get into a sugar comma any minute now. I’m a case of diabetes waiting to happen, seriously. And next week I have my brother-in-law’s graduation which comes with about 6 family dinners and lunches and snacks and Oh Lord, help me. I need a hamster wheel.

I need to rectify something. (Is rectify a word? It makes me think of ass, for some reason)

I forgot to mention three of my favorite bloggers on my Favorite Bloggers post and I MUST do them justice!!




I love you, I’m so sorry I forgot to mention you.

Do you know these amazing girls? If not, you’re missing out. Trust me!

So, I’m off to get ready. I’m so lazy. I feel like I want to put on something nice (which is hard these days, nothing looks good), do my makeup and all but then there’s a part of me that wants to throw on some leggings and call it a day. I need a shower, though. That’s not optional.

What are you doing with your Sunday?

Are you hangover? Need to know.

See you later.


P.S I just discovered 13 Reasons Why is getting a second season and I’m trying to find 13 reasons why????


Health for days journey – May, 2nd (update; My new studying schedule and a recipe!!)

Hey there,

Are you having a nice morning/afternoon/evening?

I had a good day.

  • I reached 900 followers!!
  • I spend the whole afternoon talking to an old friend, one of my best friends through Facebook messenger, just catching up. I am really happy about it. We hadn’t talked since 2014!! But I never forget about people, so I’m happy we talked;
  • I also “spoke” to my best friend Ricardo through Facebook messenger for a couple of hours. We keep in touch but not as much as I would like, so it was nice, as always.
  • I changed my personal Facebook profile picture and got a few compliments, always good for the ego.
  • People are happy that I decided to share my blog on my personal Facebook and a few friends have congratulated me.
  • It’s 11.05 p.m and I have already got 500 views. It has been a good day for views. 243 people have visited my blog today, so far.

Let’s see what I managed to accomplish from my to-do list:

  • Stay out of trouble (There’s a bottle of coke in the fridge) and stay true to my health journey! – I drank a small glass of coke; There’s no hope for me.
  • Drink at least 1,5 l of water; – I didn’t pay attention, need to be better tomorrow. But I might have been close. I am drinking berry tea with lemon right now;
  • Drink less coffee and milk (I need to work on this in general); – Nope. Two cups of coffee with milk today!! I mean, it’s more milk and coffee (instant coffee powder), so more milk. It’s skimmed and lactose-free, but still;
  • Wash the dishes and make the kitchen spotless; – I did wash a bunch of dishes, but didn’t clean the kitchen. I have a new bunch of dishes from dinner, I’m a messy cook, everyone says so;
  • Do a ton of laundry!! (This task never ends); – It wasn’t that much after all, I must have been dreaming about laundry. I have a bunch to fold and that IS a nightmare!
  • Come up with a final draft for my daily schedule; – Done, will show it to you now;
  • Change our bed; – Will do this in 5 minutes before bed;
  • Open the windows; – Done. Several windows and the door have been open all day;
  • Stalk the mailman until he brings me a book I’m waiting for and a postcard from my dearest friend Dippy-Dotty Girl– Didn’t have to stalk the guy, the postcard came!!!
  • Stop Rosa from eating the mailman; – He’s alive, but she barked like she was going to eat him, helmet, bike and all;
  • Keep up with my blog reading!! – Will do so now, until I go to bed;
  • Make a list of all the Awards I need to write and post; – Absolutely forgot. Tomorrow it is;
  • Call mother and sister; – They both called me. My sister actually called me twice. And my mother has just teased me on Facebook messenger saying I must have nothing to do because I was online all day; 
  • Make something delicious for dinner. Mr. R might kill me but I’m thinking of a vegetarian dinner. I might make him some steak on the side if he complains too much; – I made something delicious, but I have no appetite so only Rui had dinner; It was vegetarian either, as you will see;


My new schedule:

Can you read my shitty handwriting? For a teacher I’m pretty bad!

So, the intention is to organize my days, so I can have enough time for everything, especially study for my final exams in July. I only need to do 3 exams to finish my degree, but I’m doing extra courses so I can have an extra minor in History. I’m also doing German, to complete the A1 level. I will do 8 exams, in July. I have 2 months to get prepared which is more than enough, since most of these course I have done and failed (which means I know some of the materials but didn’t do well enough to pass) and the materials are easy.

I like to multitask, especially at mealtimes. I usually have breakfast or lunch or my afternoon snack while blogging or reading. Sometimes I watch shows or videos or listen to music while blogging or reading blogs.

I forgot to schedule the time for my afternoon snack, but it should be around 4 p.m. I won’t be having a morning snack, because I’m having a late breakfast between 9 a.m and 10 a.m and an early lunch, at noon.

I’m also trying to give my blog a little structure. Just a little, because I love it the way it is, all over the place, posting when I feel like doing it. I will keep posting every single day, my health for  days journey. I decided that on Wednesdays, I will post all of my recipes for that week and meal plan for the following week, as well as a grocery balance. I thought it would be nice do a weekly recap/favorites on Saturday and to have a guest post on Sunday. Would you like to do a guest post for me? Email me 🙂

I have no exercise schedule for Saturday because I hope I can go swimming and I don’t have one for Sunday because it will be my rest day. We’ll have date night on Saturday, going out or staying home and doing pizza night or movie night. My cheat day will be Saturday or Sunday, I can only pick one. I have scheduled some time on Wednesday to watch some movie, there are a few movies that I want to watch that Rui is not interested in watching, such as old classics. I might blog about that movie, as I rarely do reviews.

My health for day journey posts will include the same as always:

  • What I eat
  • Water I drink
  • To-do list for the day
  • General news about my daily life
  • Things I’m grateful for

Now, it’s time to share the recipe that I made for tonight’s dinner:

Ground beef and vegetables pasta


  • 500 g of ground beef
  • 200 g of frozen peas
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1 medium red bell pepper
  • 500 g of whole wheat pasta
  • Garlic powder, parsley powder, olive oil, salt and mixed peppers according to your taste
  • Tomato pulp


  • Cook the pasta in boiling water with salt and a drizzle of olive oil (so it doesn’t stick together). It takes about 10 minutes to be done. Once cooked, pour the water and set aside.
  • Chop the onion and the red bell pepper and add them to a pan (I use a wok), adding the frozen peas. Drizzle of olive oil and let it “fry” while stirring;
  • Add the ground beef, stirring until it gets lighter instead of red. Add salt, pepper, garlic powder and parsley powder;
  • When the ground beef is almost cooked, add the tomato pulp and leave for 10 minutes in medium heat, stirring occasionally;
  • Serve the ground beef and veggies with the pasta. I added a red cabbage, raw onion and cucumber salad on the side;


Hope you like it, guys!

See you tomorrow!!
