Letting things go, I’m really bad at it. Yet I realized that certain things on this island are not possible. I had a choice, let them go and be happy here or focus me dead and not be happy. I decided to choose to let go, something I could not, but in the first 3 weeks I even succeeded and I am proud of that.
10,000 steps in 1 day without being able to walk
If there is a country in the world where you can walk even worse than in Curacao, let me know. For myself, I would like to take 10,000 steps in a day, which I always updated with a pedometer on my mobile. The first thing I noticed when I landed on this island was that this new island girl will never reach 10,000 steps a day. They hardly know pavement and everyone does everything by car. It took some effort, but I decided to take the app from my mobile, am I happy to see again and again that I do not get my goals? No, certainly not, so away with that app.

Weighing without scales
It is retarded, but at home, I had to stand on the scales every day, I was lighter, my fat percentage has already dropped and so on. It is bad, but I wanted to be there every day, preferably twice in the morning and just before bedtime. If I could not stand for a day, I did not like that. Fortunately, I have been able to use myself in the Netherlands to get up once a week. Then I came here on Curacao, a studio without a scale, this took away so much stress and whining. I do not miss him, I suddenly do not care how much I weigh. It is a relief to live without that thing. Charlotte also mentioned this in the article below. Weighing without scales

Measure everything exactly
When I was making food, I wanted to know exactly the quantities. For example, my oatmeal porridge was 200 ml coconut milk on 40 grams of oatmeal and my coconut yogurt was 250 grams with 10 grams of oatmeal. Also in the evening, I wanted to measure everything, without scale and measuring cups that is very difficult. Everything is now (because it has to) on the bet and I can tell you, I like it secretly fine. It does not always have to be that precise.
