I might just cry

What for Mr. God!
All went pear shaped yesterday.
I may never recover.
Azerbaijan won Eurovision.
Instead of the hot Swedish Guy, the sand artist of Ukraine or even the cute Estonian girl singing about her night out in NYC.

It is official, Europe has no taste.

Winter is coming.
My jeans don't fit. It is not like I have grown any taller, they still fit length wise. 

So: the solution started today. Regular exercise and healthy lunches. I eat well when I am at home, but I make my own school lunch and I often can't be bothered to whip up something balanced.
The commitment I am making when it comes to food is to make myself a healthy (not to mention delicious!) lunch, normally in the shape of a bento. 

Yesterday, my lunch was created. Firstly with a trip to the supermarket (walking the long way, exercise+vitamin D!) to buy shiitake mushrooms, salmon, sesame seeds, bok choy  and coconut water. The coconut water was just something that made me curious,and was actually really good!

I then fried the fish in some ginger, soy and sesame seeds. I had to make sure it was well cooked because it had to go in my lunch box for a few hours un-refrigerated. I then mashed it a bit so it was in small pieces and added some fresh chili. 
Now to shape the rice balls! I got a small dish and pressed the warm sushi rice into it so i had  space for my salmon. Then it was just a case of putting more rice on top and turning them out on some nori! At the same time i steamed some vegetables as a side.

So - there is lunch, now to do some exercise. Ballet tomorrow and then I will have to drag Wills out to do some softball training on the other days.

I feel like such a teenage girl, I am not dieting as such, just aspiring to become more healthy. Still, feel a little bit ridiculous, but I have a bush-walking camp coming up and I want to be able to climb those mountains without dying ;)

So, if for once I can actually commit to something for any real period of time, it will be a miracle!
Wish me luck!
