Sometimes things are so overwhelming and so tiring you just feel like breaking down.
This week was ridiculously tiring. And I can't even explain why. Yesterday was pretty much a breaking point. I really felt like I was going to cry during training. Ever felt like that? It made me question why I was even bothering to put in so much effort into training, into judo, when I probably wouldn't get anything out of it. To make matters worse, yesterday's training convinced me I wouldn't be able to win this year's national school's competition.
The new IJF rules... the competitions... the schoolwork... the responsibilities... All of it really felt like it was weighing me down. What I really wanted was to escape and hide in my kitchen and just bake and cook my time away. I feel like a let down.
In times like this, all you really need is someone to talk to, someone who will listen and show that they care. And I'm really thankful that I have someone like that in my life.
Setbacks and obstacles aren't going to stop me.
The breakfasts of this week~
11th February 2013: Rolled Oats with Rendang
We had a family gathering for Chinese New Year that day and my dad made rendang so I thought why not top some oats with it? Haha I know right, rendang for Chinese New Year. It's like eating pineapple tarts for Christmas.
12nd February 2013: Almond Spread Swirled Polenta Squares
There's no story. I let them sit too long and they turned solid.
13th February 2013: The healthiest banana oat cookies on the planet
14th February 2013: Cream cheese scrambled eggs
Valentine's day. And you know why the lighting is kind of bad? Because I had school, on Valentine's Day. Sad life.
15th February 2013: Fluffy egg white oats with blueberries
16th February 2013: Baked Wholewheat Pancakes with Red Velvet Cream Cheese Rum Ball Bits
Long long long name. I'm using a left over valentine's treat for these.
