The beauty of January/Ljepota siječnja

Updated: Mar 7, 2022


In December, I suddenly discovered that I was gaining weight again. I had nice new jeans, quite expensive, which I bought only a month or two ago and suddenly I couldn’t button them up. I tried on two other pairs of relatively new jeans and the situation was about the same. That’s where I decided it was about time I invested in a scale. When the scale arrived, a few days before the holidays, I realized that I had gained 4-5 kg ​​in the last 3 months. Just enough not to fit in my jeans. I decided not to think about it during the holidays. For many Croatians, the tradition of baking cakes is cherished during the holidays. Baking cakes is a process that I enjoy and that I managed to transfer to my daughter as well. I really love my cakes, from traditional Croatian biscuits “kiflice” and apple pies to tiramisu. Since I decided, without regret, to enjoy cakes and delicious food during the holidays, I gained another 1-2 kg.

No matter, it's time for corrections now and so, I enrolled in the gym yesterday. Since I just got over the covid infection, I feel much more relaxed and going back to the gym is appealing to me again. Shortly before that I went to town and bought nice new sneakers, for my pleasure and motivation. I like that my shoes and clothes for exercise are comfortable, but also beautiful. I am looking forward to going to the jacuzzi and sauna after exercise and to that wonderful feeling of cleanliness when leaving the gym after all these treatments. In addition, I return to a strict diet by which I restrict the amount of food I eat.

Every part of the year has something beautiful. I find beauty in January, and that is a return to the routine after the holidays, which can be lovely, but also often in some ways exhausting. January is a long month, currently wet and grey, but I feel joy and love in myself, so I look forward to it.


Love,

Kristina

Ljepota siječnja


U prosincu sam iznenada otkrila da sam se opet udebljala. Operem lijepe nove traperice, poprilično skupe, koje sam kupila pred svega mjesec ili dva i ne mogu ih zakopčati. Probam sa druga dva para isto relativno novih traperica i situacija je bila približno ista. Tu sam odlučila da je krajnje vrijeme da investiram u vagu. Kad je vaga stigla, par dana prije blagdana, shvatila sam da sam se u posljednja 3 mjeseca udebljala 4-5 kg. Taman toliko da ne stamen u traperice. Odlučila sam ne misliti na to u vrijeme blagdana. Za mnoge ljude u Hrvatskoj, za blagdane se njeguje tradicija pečenja kolača. Pečenje kolača je proces u kojem uživam i kojim sam uspjela zaraziti i svoju kćer. Uz to zaista volim svoje kolače, od vaniliji kiflica, makovnjače, pite od jabuka pa do tiramisua. Obzirom da sam odlučila, bez grižnje savjesti, uzivati u kolačima i ukusnoj hrani tokom blagdana zaradila sam još 1-2 kg.

Nema veze, došlo je vrijeme za korekcije. Zato sam jučer upisala teretanu. Obzirom da sam baš prebolila covid infekciju osjećam se znatno opuštenije i povratak u teretanu mi je ponovo privlačan. Kratko prije toga otišla sam u grad i kupila lijepe nove tenisice. To mi je za užitak i motivaciju. Volim da mi je obuća i odjeća za vježbanje udobna, ali i lijepa. Veselim se i odlasku u jaccuzi i saunu nakon vježbanja i onom divnom osjećaju čistoće pri izlasku iz teretane nakon svih tih tretmana. Uz to vraćam se strogom režimu prehrane po kojem preskočim doručak, a često i ručak. Večere se ne želim odreći jer u večerama najviše uživam.

Svaki dio godine ima nešto lijepo. Tako da i u siječnju nalazim ljepotu, a to je povratak u rutinu nakon blagdana koji su osim sto predstavljaju užitak često na neki način i iscrpljujući. Siječanj je dugi mjesec, trenutno mokar i siv, ali u sebi osjećam radost i ljubav pa mu se zato radujem.


S ljubavlju,

Kristina
