First, I wanted to thank you for all the love and support I received on yesterday´s post. It meant the world to me, seriously :)
Now, onto today… I was wondering. It´s been exactly 1 month since I became 15! Time flies, huh? Haha.
So, having this in mind, I decided to make this day worth it. I´ve been 15 for (almost) 30 days now, right? And that´s something to celebrate ;)
Today´s breakfast was simple, yet different: 2 (I said TWO!) slices of whole wheat bread with cottage cheese.
I think I´ve been scared of bread for long enough. And what´s more constructive then facing my fears?
Snack at school break was the usual – an apple. I couldn´t think of anything better, specially because I knew I´d have an early lunch. So I guess it wasn´t so terrible…
At lunch time, I finally chose not to order salad for once in my life! Isn´t it another improvement?
Isn´t it beautiful?
I´ve had 1 1/2 slices of chicken pie, plus steamed zucchini, cauliflower and carrots.
Although I felt a bit full at the end, I knew I had achieved something. Besides, it tasted AH-MAZING.
As good as it looks. Haha ;)
After lunch, I stayed at school - I´m now part of a social project, who helps poor kids to learn citizenship values through little games and activities. I´m so excited! If you live in Brazil, and you study in a public school, you don´t stand a chance on getting into college. Only a few (like, about 10-15 of them, in the whole country) are actually good ones. I mean, they have a special system of quotas (which I think is really prejudiced… Anyway), but it´s really hard for a public-school student to be interested in learning, specially when they see all those smugglers and gangsters making lots on money wihtout having any kid of instruction.
But I´m facing this as a challenge – as I´m taking care of kids between 7 and 8 years, my mission will be making them believe in themselves. Believing in their own capacity, in their own strenght. They´re ALWAYS hope! Right?
I left school at 3 pm, and got home at around 4 pm. I managed to study for a little bit, do some homework, continue some researches… Then, by 6 pm or so, I went to the gym. It felt awesome! Poor gym guys – they had to watch me lip-synch all kinds of songs for a long time. Haha.
I did ~30 min on the treadmill, plus ~15 min of biking. Then, I did some strenght training for about 40 minutes. That made me so sleepy…
Fortunately, I had brought my stuff to take a shower at the gym´s changing room. Aaaaah. Much better ;)
When I got home, I waited for a bit – answered some phone calls, turned on my computer, did some blog-reading – and then had dinner. A really good one :)
I´ve had: steamed cauliflower, chayote, pumpkin and carrots, a baked sweet potato and a (demolished) slice of spinach quiche. What can I say? I love the crust ;)
Well, I guess it´s time to go… School´s until 5 pm tomorrow!
Hahaha. Have a great Wednesday, guys!
