Journey To Being Healthy

August 24, 2017 – Thursday

I write this at 8:35am. I skipped school today because I’m ill and we’re currently on the way to the doctor. Since we’re still pretty far from my doctor, I decided to write this post to make me remember that I should start being healthy.

I am totally not healthy. They say that my skin is a lot less tanner than theirs, but the truth is, I’m pale. My skin is pale, my lips are pale and my eyes look like they haven’t been sleeping for years.

I went to school yesterday and honestly it was an unproductive day for me because I was just like sleeping even though my eyes are open. I am totally not feeling well yesterday yet I decided to go to school. Everytime we go outside I feel dizzy and my body temperature changes from time to time. I also went to the clinic twice yesterday but my body temperature was normal. I don’t really know what’s wrong with me.

So now, I’m waiting for the doctor… The nurse said she’d arrive at 10am. It’s cold here and at the same time, boring. I have nothing else to do.

Alright, update. It’s 15:37 already and I definitely forgot to update this post. The doctor told me that I might have dengue or UTI but that’s IF my body temperature becomes abnormal again. She prescribed me with two kinds of medicine, I think they are both antibiotic which will prevent me to have dengue or UTI.. Not exactly sure but I guess that’s it. I will take the meds for a week then I should start drinking the vitamins that she gave me. She prescribed me a vitamin that would help increase the iron in my body.

I hope this will all work out. I don’t ever want to feel this kind of illness again. It makes me want to pull off my head because it freaking hurts. Haha.
Okay. I should start with little changes in my food, exercise and my daily routine. I hope eventually this will all turn out well.

Food:

  • Eat a meal with veggies in it. Atleast twice a week.

Because I seriously don’t eat vegetables. My parents forces me to eat vegetables, but I don’t just like it. Ahhh. Lesson learned.

  • Drink more water.

I thought my water intake was enough, but still, I need to drink more. I should probably go for 8 glasses of water since I think I only take up 3-5 glasses.

  • Reduce drinking coffee.

Because sometimes I can drink 3-4 cups of coffee a day. Especially if it’s cold– ah, the struggle!!!

Exercise:

I’m still looking for a good exercise plan and 30-day challenges and such. I’ll update this as soon as I find the right one for me!!

My routine:

I can’t absolutely say what will be my routine because routines are hard to change. But I aim to be asleep already before 11. If you have read my after school routine, you guys know that after school, I sleep first before studying. I think I need to change that.

Hello everyone!! This was supposed to be posted yesterday but I completely forgot to. However here it is now.

Update on my body temperature, the on off fever stopped (thank you, Lord!) but I still get dizzy at times.

That’s it and I hope you’re all having a lovely time wherever you are right now!!

PS. Happy birthday, Elline!

    Jirah, I hope you get enough rest and recover well. I too have been working on my health and I am currently looking for an exercise routine that I can stick to. Take care and God bless. <3

  2. Praying you get to feeling better, and that you find the exercise that you will like. God bless you πŸ™‚

  3. Oh no! I hope and pray that you start feeling better soon! I definitely need to up my water intake…like a lot! I hope you’re able to get some rest this weekend! Take care of yourself dear! xo

    1. Thank you so much, Brittney!!! Water is the key to everything I guess. Haha πŸ˜‚β€

  4. Hope you feel better soon Jirah!

    1. Thank you, Pamela! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’“

  5. Yes, girl! Definitely drink water :). Lack of water intake for our body cause dizziness, but also headaches, body aches. Try to drink some water when you first wake up, and during meals. I like vegetables, but it’s possible you just haven’t found a vegetable you like yet πŸ™‚ Vitamins will definitely help πŸ™‚ and if you like cranberry juice that may help as well. All of those antioxidants. Nuts and seeds are also really good too πŸ™‚

    Thinking of you! I definitely don’t want you sick and feeling bad!

    1. Water is the key to fitness πŸ˜‚ My mum always tell me that, but I never do it. Lesson learned! I started eating vegetables now because I was forced to (haha) but I hope I’ll be used to the taste soon. Thanks for the tips!

      And ah thank you so much. You just made my day! 😭❀

      1. I’ve heard even for adults sometimes we have to try something ten times for us to see if we actually like it. Hopefully, this works for you.

  6. Aww I hope that you get well soon, girl!! πŸ’œ I’ll have times where I don’t exercise enough and eat not-so-healthy food (borderline junk) and I feel super fatigued and lethargic. Taking care of our bodies is sooo important, from drinking a good amount of water to exercising. Often it’s the little things our bodies need to feel better β˜ΊοΈπŸ’š praying for you! xxx

    1. Thank you so much, Maggie! Here’s to a healthier life! πŸ˜‚β€
