Almost Winter Wonderland

It’s been snowing all day. I love snow. I love winter as long as there’s snow on the ground. And now there’s nothing but snow, so I’m stoked about it!

Snow makes everything so bright. Winter is so dark time here in Finland though I live in South-West. In Lapland sun even won’t rise at this time of the year. But in Lapland there’s always snow. Here in South-West of Finland snow isn’t certain anymore. I remember when I was a kid, there was snow everywhere at winter time. And we had so much fun playing on the snow: sliding down on a sled hill, building snow men and having snowball fights. Nowadays it’s always a ponder whether there’ll be snow or not.  Now I just hope this snow wouldn’t melt until spring. So we can have a WHITE CHRISTMAS. It would be awesome! I love Christmas, but I’ll write about that some other day.

I went about hour walk today.  It was about -5 °C (23 °F), but felt colder because of the wind. I couldn’t be there longer, ‘cos wind was so chilly that my face froze. It was good exercise, ‘cos snow was up to my knees. It was quite tough walk in heavy snow. But it was great in spite of the freezing wind. Luckily wind was behind most of the time.

PS. Photos aren’t the best ones’ cos there was snowing and it was too dark for my camera. I really need new equipment, but my camera will do until I have money to buy new great one.


I’m So Excited

This new life is great. I love it.


My plan for today was wake up early, eat good breakfast and do some exercise.


But I didn’t woke up until 10.30 am. Oh well, it’s was still morning though. Wasn’t it? I ate sturdy breakfast including two sandwiches and oatmeal, drank raspberry juice. Yes, that went like I’d planned. Then I left to do some sports. Beginning of the week I decided I want to go to swimming. So I did today. I swam 1,5 km (0,9 miles). Also I walked 3 km (1,9 miles). Wohoo. I felt so good afterwards. It always feels good after you’ve done some exercise. =)


After I got home I ate spaghetti with minced meat sauce. I think it was quite healthy though spaghetti wasn’t whole wheat. Sauce was healthy ‘cos besides minced meat there was carrots, onions and parsnips. Before bedtime I ate two sandwiches again.


I know that I should eat regularly while losing weight. In fact everybody should eat regularly to gain or to remain their ideal weight. I also know you should eat about 4 to 5 times a day. You should have a good breakfast, ‘cos it’s most important meal in day. I’ve read at breakfast should contain good amount of protein ‘cos it adds basal metabolism. It’s important increase your basal metabolism while you’re losing weight. Now I’m just writing about theory. I could do one or two posts just about theory regarding healthy eating and living. You shouldn’t forgot eat lunch, some healthy snack, dinner and healthy evening snack. I promise I would do something about my eating habits. This was just day 1.


And I’m so excited about this blog. I thought about this blog while swimming. I noticed swimming is also good for your mind. ‘cos you have time to think everything while you just swim. I came up with loads of ideas to put in here. So I think I keep writing. This is fun. Though, I’m little bummed out ‘cos I can’t use this wordpress as good as I’d wanted to. But I’m learning. So bear with me.


I’m off to bed now. Trying to write less confusing text tomorrow.

Introducing myself


This blog is about me. This blog is about my own thoughts and feelings. This blog is about who I am. This blog is about what I want to achieve in life. Whole purpose of this blog is to put my thoughts in some kind of order so I can figure out what have happened to me in last year and what’s going to happen to me in next year.

I’m 31 years old woman. A single. Overweight. Homeless. Feeling little blue. Yes I know, this doesn’t give a very good impression of me. Also I’m not so good writer. I mean I’m not too funny or don’t come up with good phrases. And my English is not perfect, not even close.  Maybe you stopped reading already, but if you still going on you’ll find out something about me.

Little over a year ago I lost my job. Actually it was my own fault. I was working as a nurse in rehabilitation ward in hospital. I’ve studied to be a nurse since 2002. It supposed to last three and half years, but I never finished. I almost did, but almost doesn’t count. I’d been studying little over 3 years, but I just didn’t finish my school work, because I was working. And loving it. So they just couldn’t keep me anymore in the work, ‘cos I didn’t have a degree.

At August in last year (2011) I had my final day at nursing job. Then it took a long time to talk about it to anyone. Actually, to my family I haven’t really talk about it at all. One of my friend just figure it out by herself and made me do something about my unemployment.

After Christmas 2011 I finally did something. I did go to employment agency. I got a job as a cleaner in pharmaceutical factory. About same time I decided to get my nursing degree. I just had to apply to polytechnic again. The polytechnic I got in was about 90km (56 miles) from my hometown. Luckily my aunt lives in that town with her husband and their dog. And middle of everything I found out that I have hypothyroidism.

I thought that studying would take at least a year but I wasn’t sure. I also gave up of my apartment, ‘cos I just couldn’t afford it as a student. Two weeks after school started I knew I only had to do one paper and five weeks practical training.

Now I’m happily back in my hometown, though I don’t have a home. Nowadays I live with my mom. Yes I’m over 30 and I live with my mother. OMG! Now I’m looking for work to get money so I could rent apartment just for me.

Top of all this I’m planning to chance my lifestyle. I’m really serious about losing weight. That means to chance my eating habits and my exercise. I could imagine that eating habits are quit easy to chance to right direction. I just have to leave candy and other sweets out of it. Exercise. Yeah I just have to get my ass up of the couch.

In this blog I’m planning to tell about journey in my new life. Let’s see what kind of journey it would be. Please join me. Feel free to comment and also suggest themes you think I should write about.

With Love, SonyaBlue
