Day 6, Part 1: Ireland/Scotland en route to Belfast
Stopped at Tollymore Forest Park to hike (and look for 3 Game of Thrones shooting sites...found one. Ran short on time for the others); Castle Ward Estate next. Very much Downton Abbey-esque. Lovely. And there was a bear. The last photo is a tunnel that was supposed to lead to the tower used in Winterfell shoots...again, ran out of time! We sure did try, though. #capricciocolumbus#Ireland#gameofthrones#wewerethisclose#tightschedule
Uma foto tão simples, mas que tem um significado tremendo. O tempo passou rápido demais, mas parece que foi ontem que cogitei estudar fora do país! Comecei a ver preços e a ideia parecia casa vez mais distante. Afinal, minha situação financeira não era muito diferente da maioria dos brasileiros. Trabalhamos desde muito cedo pra viver de forma decente nesse país. Por um momento pensei que não ia dar certo, desisti, chorei, voltei atrás, replanejei e aqui estou, literalmente a poucos minutos da realização de um sonho! Afinal, ninguém disse que seria fácil. Renunciei a emprego, família, pessoas que amo, algumas que fazem parte da minha vida desde sempre, outras que ganharam e continuam ganhando meu coração dia após dia. Obrigada a todos que ficaram ao meu lado, que me ajudaram, que me aguentaram. Quando tomamos uma decisão tão grande de mudança assim na vida, é o momento que você consegue entender quem realmente te ama e está ao seu lado, o resto era só conveniência. Hoje eu só tenho a agradecer por cada dia aqui no meu Brasil e agora, vem Irlanda, vem Cork que teremos muita coisa pra viver!! Eu to aqui com o coração apertado e aquele nó na garganta, mas uma sensação imensa de satisfação por estar realizando um sonho! Misto de sentimentos difíceis de explicar com palavras.
E se você também tem esse sonho, segue aqui o IG e aproveite todas as informações ❤️ 🇧🇷 🇮🇪 #intercambio#irlanda#cork#brasil#viajar#ingles#ireland#brazil#md4s

when trying to live a healthy life, does it sometimes feel like you’re just constantly being told what NOT to eat? That gets frustrating, right? It’s like, ok so what CAN I eat to make this still enjoyable and realistic for me?! Or did you find yourself thinking “well it ‘worked’ but I just couldn’t maintain it and still enjoy life”... about the program or plan you tried to follow?
Well I got good news for ya friend.
1: You can live a healthy life AND have those favorite foods for you. Carbs aren’t evil. And believe it or not, you can teach your goals while still having some of your favorite treats and drinks. That’s why I’m all about showing my clients how to fit those fun foods in and still live their life, while simultaneously honoring their body and health too!
And 2: it’s not you that failed or didn’t have enough self control. Most of those plans and programs out there aren’t built to be sustainable. You aren’t the problem. The diet is. And it’s not a good plan for you if you can’t see yourself still following it 2 years from now. So let me give you permission to shove that short term fix out the window, waive adios, and never let any of ‘em back in. #BYE
Let your healthy living journey empower you friends, not control your life or make you feel like it’s a constant pass or fail exam. The qualities of a GOOD plan for you?
1) it’s helping you get closer to your goals
2) you can see yourself sticking to it 2 years from now
3) it allows you to live the life you desire and doesn’t make ya feel deprived.
Who’s with me and choosing sustainable healthy living?! It may not be the sexy thing. It won’t promise you a magic pill and overnight results. It won’t take your money through slimy gimmicks of “lose 20 lbs in 2 weeks”, playing into your emotions.
But it will give you freedom. It will give you energy. It will give you LIFE to its fullest.
Ok now back to dreaming about this Irish coffee ice cream with brownie pieces cone we had in Galway😍
