Procrastinate no more- DAY 1

Good morning yall! A bright and sunny Sunday ☀️ I thank thee Lord 🙏🏻 I hit the gym today feeling pumped up after drinking a can of Red Bull (need more of those). I actually went to the gym at 5am and forgot that they opened up at 7am on a Sunday, which frustrates me so much, and I had to drive all the way back to my house, so I decided to do the laundry while waiting for the gym to open up. 

My workout routine today consists of :

  • Running
  • Cycling
  • Stairs (the most tiring machine ever)
  • Leg press

All done in about 1 hour 30 minutes as I have to rush back home again. Whilst I’m writing this, I’m going to continue doing Eagle Abs and Reverse Crunch at home. The stairs was my first time, and I swear to God it makes your heart beats so fast in 2 minutes, burn the calories faster, also makes you go “God I can’t do this anymore, I’m dying.” Or is it just me? Haha. Good day coming ahead! ☺️

Study ✔️

Workout ✔️

No fast food ✔️

My best friend is called procrastination 

I have an idea. 

Since I procrastinate in almost everything I do, I figured out a way to overcome it. Set a time frame, of the thing you’re supposed to do. Let’s say, workout. Workout everyday for 1 week. Not the hardcore kind of workout, just a light to medium ones. Just to make myself get back on track, and feel comfortable. Set a minimum of 24 hours for starters will do 😉

So here’s the list of the things I have to do within a period of time :

  1. Workout for 1 week (no matter where and when, for at least 30 mins)
  2. Study for 3 days straight. Really focus and give it your all. 
  3. Do not eat fast food for 1 week. (No more Mcd, KFC, late night drive-thru’s!) 

This is all for now, and it starts today, Sunday 17 September 2017 and I will update my progress here everyday. Include that as well!

What do you think? What do you do to not procrastinate? Help ya girl out. Have a great Sunday!

Doxy to the rescue!

At first, I am tempted to visit the Dermatologist to get a prescription on Roaccutane, but I was told there are tons of side-effects and from the reviews I read on Google….well it’s terrifying. It worked on some people but my doctor told me to try on Doxycycline. This is my 10th day popping em’ pills now and MY SKIN GETS WORST!!!! 

Here’s some picture for comparison :

It looks more inflammed and I have more zits popping as well. What I eat definitely contributes to this situation, I must admit. I’ve been stress-eating like crazy, I ate KFC 2 days ago, KFC again yesterday, and Pizza today, and I’m not supposed to eat chicken to heal my acne. I fucking screw things up I know ugh. Ok but I read some reviews and many said that this is normal and it takes a few weeks for Doxycycline to work, and the skin will like kinda get worst first before it calms down and get better. I have been prescribed with Adapalene & Benzoyl Peroxide cream and Cetrimide Lotion/face wash (which is an antiseptic and works wonder in removing dead skin cells!!! I swear I can see em’ drop when cleansing my face)  Doxycycline has to be eaten after meal and if not it will give you an upset stomach/nausea. When I was in a rush I just popped it in and not eat first so minutes later I vomit my stomach out. This happened twice and it felt so bad. I even took a pregnancy test just to make sure it is the side-effect haha! 


For now I am not going out at all, just hibernate. Crossing my fingers till my acne heals. Will be back with the update in like 3 weeks? Okay? Definitely not going to eat unhealthy shitty food again, will do a complete fucking detox, cut all the craps, hit the gym again and fix it once and for all. Thank you for reading! 

Throwback to my flawless skin..


I cannot tolerate 

I always think that I have a high tolerance with pain. If I see people getting sick and can still get up and go to work, I think I can do that also. When I had viral fever and had to be hospitalized for 6 days, the fever was so bad that I put my iPhone password in my Medical Id just in case I DIE. So that my mum can access my phone and delete all the stupid shits I did. May Julianna rest in peace. 

Today, I was in a rush and swallowed my prescribed medicine that is supposed to be eaten after meal but I thought oh I ate a lot last night, maybe that counts which did not 😂  It irritates my stomach, makes me puke in 10 minutes after ingesting, the vomit feels like it won’t stop coming out. I am never getting pregnant if this is what I have to go through everyday. Continuous vomiting. I can’t make it stop! I can taste my medicine coming out ugh what a waste damn it! For a second there, I really thought I was pregnant because I feel so sick and I keep on vomiting even when nothing comes out. Dramatic, I know. High tolerance with pain huh? 

it happens, and its normal

Lying to yourself on how you’re going to make your weekend a productive one, preparing a checklist of tasks for you to complete, imagining oh how good it feels to get that super due assignment done (at last) but end up watching movies…stress-eating…and sleep? Before you know, its already Sunday and it seems too late to get it all done.

Sounds familiar? Trust me, this is a repetitive shit I’ve been going through every weekends. The feeling of its too late and I shall continue to sleep can be put off by doing some things I found to work. This is a reminder for myself as well.

Clean your fucking room.

clean room

Open the window, let some fresh air and light come through, oh I swear to God this shit works. You suddenly notice how bad your room smells and that they all can exit through the window. No need for a massive spring clean, just grab a wet towel and wipe your tiles a bit, also the dust on your makeup table etc, change your bed sheet, reorganize your work space, put the books where they belong, do your laundry and especially for anyone with long hair, clean your hairbrush and your room that is filled with the fallen hair!!!

Do some ironing

Which is the last thing I would do (looks good to me, doesn’t need ironing right?). Sift through your wardrobe, choose a few clothes that needs ironing and that you will wear for the week. Spray some clean water onto any fabric that is super hard to iron. My mum always nag about how I never iron my clothes and it will give people a bad impression towards me being lazy af which I have to agree on. Thanks mum! A well fitted and ironed attire is the key to looking presentable.

Shower

I shower a lot okay haha. For this situation, hit the shower and take your time to relax, clean yourself properly and not with a rush. Slowly scrub your face, feet and body. The fresh feel with change everything. I woke up late and having not completed any of my work makes me want to go back to sleep and just forget about it. But I forced myself to shower, and that changes me. Emotional moment with the shower. I just feel like I can start doing my work right away, that’s what I mean.

Meet Siti

Stressing out about how I just want clear skin, lose 20 kg, finish up my assignment, and study hard for my exams.

But what did Julianna do? She ate fried food and instant noodle. She resolved to stress-eating.

And she’s even more stressed now 😂 

I wish I could just do all these in one day and see the results. Just get done with it. 

Ok back to Siti! She’s a persian cat of mine, around 6 months old. Siti is very shy at first but now she is so manja with me hehe. 


She looks dirty but she’s not haha! Siti is not totally white, she got grey patches here and there. What I observed from having Siti in my house about a month plus is that she loves to sit by the window in my room, she always lay down on my chest and sleep, Siti is energetic and not much of a heavy-sleeper like I am haha. She is still figuring out how to poop properly in the litter box I provided as she sometimes leave her poop uncovered, or her poop just fell out of the box, drops onto the tile 😒 Ew. 

Say hi to Siti! 🙋🏻

Julianna tries clean eating

I made up my mind that if I don’t change what I eat, all of my efforts working out would be a waste. Back in the days when I first go to the gym, I would drive up to Mcd drive-thru afterwards for a Happy Meal. I thought the kids portion would have less calories and won’t really affect me. 

AND I WAS WRONG! (obviously 😒)

With my (I would consider) serious pimples and inflammation going on my cheeks, and after a lil of research of the causes of my skin right now, I am determined to change what I eat. I am lazy to cook anything if I’m hungry at that time. I am impatient and want food to come to me as soon as possible 😂 So Mamak and Mcd are the closest to my house. Very dangerous you see…

All those fried food, lots of white rice, roti nan, thosai, roti canai…might have contributed to my skin breaking out right now or made it even worst 😭 I Googled some of the grocery list for anti-inflammation food and bought some of it right away! 


RM44 is the total 😂 I had exact RM44 in my purse at that time and had to calculate the total before lining up at the counter and not end up in a walk of shame! My classmate told me to start juicing, as she drink it as a meal replacement for the 3 main courses. It works as she said. I blended broccoli and apples and to my surprise, all those fibres really fill up my stomach fast! Burppp. I’m full! Infusing olive oil in everything I cook is what I’m trying to do, baking potato chips with a drizzle of olive oil, and putting some more on the sprouted bread oh yummms. Not really a pleasure for my appetite to be honest 😂 

Damn grocery shopping is even expensive now with all these clean eating happening!
