I feel embarrassed for even writing this blog but I think I have to do this as I have many people reading my blog.
So many things that have happened for the past two months, from traveling to moving apartments to getting married and so much more. Yes, I have to say that I should have given more time to blogging and vlogging, but I was too busy I even forgot about it.
Good thing is that I am back to my routine and although there are things happening here and there, I will definitely dedicate more time to blogging and making YouTube videos again.
Another note, I have signed up to run the half marathon in Sydney which will be on September the 17th. Because of lack of time to get a proper training I will not run a full marathon this time. But I feel good that I am going for a half marathon because I cannot handle the pressure of putting a 20 week trainings program into 8 weeks. No thanks, I am done with stress!
Anyways, talking about working out, I have been thinking about eating more healthy and changing some things about my eating habits. Today I started writing down the things I eat on a daily basis. I will be eating less meat and more vegetables and fish. Also, I have not been drinking any soft drinks since a week and I do not add any sugar to my tea or coffee for a while now.
I have been more aware recently about my lifestyle and I am ready to make big changes. But… big changes start with small steps 🙂
I hope you all are doing great, and I promise you that I will be blogging more often than I’ve ever done before. Send me a message if you wish to see a particular subject on maanitalk.com

My friend looked at me and dropped a question probably many has thought about: what if you had one million dollar, what would you do with it? Would you invest it, or buy diamonds or a big house?
I turned around and said with dreamy eyes, I would let the world travel through me. He gave me a confused smile and said what?! Yes, just like I said it I would let the world travel through me. He looked curious waiting for my explanation.
I would go to Italy and visit one of those old cafes and drink a freshly maid cappuccino. Then I would go to South-America and learn how to dance Salsa. I would go to the Himalayas and meditate, and go to a village somewhere in Africa to live with the locals for a few weeks and get water each morning. Go on Safari and see the wild life from very close. I want to go to Brazil and learn how to play football on the street with the guys. Go to America and eat one of the biggest hamburgers. Ooh and don’t forget about Australia, learn how to surf and enjoy the campfire on the beach afterwards. I would probably go to more places I don’t even know they exist, find out what cultures are there are and let life travel through me. At the end I want to end up somewhere on a white beach, take a sip from my cocktail and dance like no one is watching me. Yea, I will definitely going to do that. Close my eyes and let the world travel through me.
Then I opened my eyes, I saw him looking at me and said “you are so silly”.
My first day without cigarettes, man it is hard! I’m moving all the time and I cannot focus a 100% on one thing, I’m doing many things at the same time. Looking at my phone, blogging, writing my thesis, eating, thinking about running, thinking about when to book my tickets, where I should stay, who is passing me by now, what are people doing. ALL OF THIS at the same time in my head.
BUT until now I managed NOT to smoke, even though I want to run to the store now and by a new package.
So to keep my mind away from the cigarettes, I am now listening to some zen music.
I have read on the internet that eating bananas can help you stop quitting and also vegetables. They also recommend to not drinking coffee because it will give you the desire to smoke a cigarette as well. This is because smokers associated cigarettes with coffee. SO this morning I did not have coffee but a forest fruit tea. I also brought my vegetables with me to school. And one last thing is to drink lots of water so you will get the feeling of being full. Every time I think of a cigarette I take a sip of my water.
Last but not leasttttt is will power, I WANT TO QUIT PERIOD!
