Today I feel like I wanna go back in time a bit, so why not synchronise my thoughts with wearing a thrifted outfit? What can I say, that’s how I roll! But seriously now. I wish I could turn back time to those lazy mornings and instead of snoozing my alarm, to actually get my arse in the gym. I’ve been feeling really unfit in the last couple of months. Kind of like, you know when you run out of breath by chasing the last tram? Or by stretching a muscle after running for 10 mins. I started feeling like this and thought to myself this is getting way out of hand so I need to start working out properly. Well, I’ve been postponing it ever since this bright idea came to mind and now I really regret it. And I’ma tell you why: I am sick. I have been sick. And I am getting sick of being sick. It’s literally my autoimmune system shouting: “Andra, come on now, do something!”
And I get it.. but you see, I start feeling bad, then I get better, I go to the gym, then I get sick. And it’s a vicious circle. The fact that it’s still cold and rainy doesn’t help either. But I got it now, I’ve made a promise to myself that I’ll start being more active once this flu goes away. I’ll let you now how I get on in a month! Until then, learn from my mistakes and remember to stay active, go have some walks/runs or anything that keeps you moving – it’s the best medicine for your body.
I found this striped jumpsuit in a kilo sale, very fancy I know. I love sales like these, but I have to say it’s been quite disappointing lately. The prices seem to go higher, but the items are less interesting, more and more damaged..and it’s just harder to find a bargain. I liked this one though, I even re-negotiated the price. Got home very proud of myself and realised it has a whole in the leg. You see what happens when you’re out of shape? Even my fashion skills seem to fail me nowadays. But it’s all cool, I was able to fix the problem and I’m quite happy with the result.
What thrift stores do you guys go to around Manchester? Let me know, I’d love to try out new places!
