Lizzie983's Journal, 12 February 2013

Yesterday I had such a wonderful evening! Had (German) dinner by friends, and after that one of them played saxophone. It has been great! It brought back good memories of when I used to live in Bologna and went to live jazz concerts quite often. I did not sleep as much as I needed, but it was worth it.
I am journaling from work today, trying to apply for jobs.
In a way, I feel like I am not qualified for many jobs but overqualified for many other ones. Let's see how it goes.
I am having way more coffee than my body can handle today, I hope I'll survive the working day and the swimming session of this late afternoon. Swimming 1.3km is my lowest aim, my highest is 1.5km for today.
Yesterday I went shortly to the small supermarket close home, to buy some breakfast items for this morning. I have to admit, it's not my favourite supermarket... I was struggling to find something I would have really eaten. The funny thing is that when I was on the low carb diet, my grocery shopping list was always the same and quite boring and it took me no time to buy the usual items. Now that I am allowed to eat everything again, I spend a long time reading all the ingredients lists and complain about sugar content, preservatives and all the chemical stuff in the food. So that I am always looking for the healthiest option for the item I am planning to buy.
This attitude is so different compared to what I used to do as soon as I moved to Germany. So many food items were new to me, so every time I was grubbing a bunch of items from the shelves just to ttry their taste, without thinking about health.

I am happy about my life and myself, and that's my gratitude list of today.

Have a good time buddies! Life is good!

Good luck with the job hunting! My grocery list is always the same, boring but safe lol! If i want to try something new I am like you, reading the label and compare different brands and count calories... it takes forever!

It is amazing how low carbing opens your eyes to ingredients. So happy that you are doing well. Sounds like a lot of fun last night. Good luck on the job search. I bet you are more qualified for many of those jobs than you think you are!
