Wellness and Weight Loss Wednesday

I have felt super motivated the past two weeks! As you can see on my goal star chart I have already reached 18 stars!

Not only is the chart motivating me but as well the fact that I am being better! When I started to do push-ups I could barely do one! At the moment I can do 10 in a row! I can feel myself getting stronger which is just the greatest feeling in the world.

What motivated me as well was picking out flowers for my 10 star price and just seeing the flowers every day as a reminder of the progress that is happening and knowing that in 2 stars I will go and buy a magazine!

I like as well the visual reminder what I need to focus more on doing and for example this week I am going to be focused more on drinking water! Something I just always forget to do.

My Monthly Goals: March Recap and April Goals

I'm quite happy with how March went! We celebrated my dad's birthday, days got warmer, I got some great grades and some just alright grades, got some project done that I have wanted to do for some time now. All in all I think March was success! 

1. Organize my closet (armoire)
I am so happy I set this as a goal and that I actually accomplished this goal! I did two videos about it so hop over to my YouTube channel to see those videos.
2. Wake up with the sun
This one did so not happen! 
3. Choose a goal for Lent
I chose to write for 40 minutes a day and wrote more about it right here
4. Lean 10 new words in Arabic
Another one that I didn't do this month! I think I will focus more on my Arabic during the summer.
5. Post 4 YT videos
6. Finish the 100 things challenge
Success, and I wrote about it here and here.
7. Keep on going with the Spending Ban
I didn't write about this one, but I kept on strong with my Spending Ban. I am going to keep on being on a Spending Ban for some time now!
8. Write or post on YT about what minimalism means to me.
I didn't accomplish this goal but I am planning on writing down my thoughts on what being a minimalist means to me and how I plan on getting there.
9. Get 10 stars on my Wellness and Weight Loss chart
I actually earned 16 stars and bought myself some gorgeous tulips! 
10. Do Yoga 3 times for 30 minutes
I did Yoga once for 10 minutes! Not a great achievement.

When I was setting myself the goals for April I had to be very careful since (hopefully) my finals will start in end of April!

April Goals:
1. Start following my daily cleaning schedule again!
2. Study hard for finals
3. Take pictures of a new place in Geneva
4. Try out a new recipe. 
5. Have 50 stars on Wellness and Weight Loss chart
6. Do Yoga for 100 minutes 
7. Post 4 OOTD
8. Finish the Project Pan that I have going on at the moment 
9. Sew 1 item
10. Set up a photography area

Friday Favorites and Flops #5

I haven't written one of these since October! But I want to start again since I like writing down during the week what was a favorite and what was a flop!

* I loved cleaning out my closet and donating all the clothes that I wasn't using, it felt nice not having these extra things hanging around the apartment!
* I've been doing pretty good in Uni and it makes me feel amazing when I get good grades.
* My hair is growing really well and thick, which is amazing since I was been shedding like crazy couple of months ago.

* I had to re-upload my Closet Clean-Out video on YouTube since I did something wrong and it wasn't in HD!
* It is ant season again and like always the ants seem to LOVE our apartment!

I think that is all for today!

100 Things Decluttering Challenge: 50-100

Who would have thought that the last part of this challenge would be so easy! If you are subscribed to me on YouTube (you definitely should I love making videos!) you might have noticed I posted a video about decluttering my closet.

As I was decluttering I found over 60 item of clothing that I decided to donate!! I as well decided to donate around 10 pairs of shoes! So items number 50-100 in my Decluttering challenge were all clothes!

I feel great getting rid of things and I feel like I am going more and more towards minimalism (well, my idea of minimalism) and wanting to own less stuff! I feel that both my blog and my YouTube channel will focus more about NOT owning things in comparison to owning a lot of things and being organized.

I feel that I still own a lot of clothing and I will work on not owning that much of clothing but I decided that with a lot of my things to wear them until I wouldn't want to wear them anymore instead of donating them right away.

I as well didn't want to donate a lot of my summer clothing since I will have to wear them this summer but I'll definitely donate them in the autumn!
