New years resolutions

Hello!

I thought I already posted this one, but I saw I didn’t. . Oops. I know it’s now January,  and that were almost going into February. That doesn’t mind. My resolutions can’t be done in a month, so I’ll still post them. I would love to check out new blogs BTW,  so please like or comment. Then I can find your blog easier.

These 4 things are all goals, although I already do a lot of them.
My resolutions:
Eat less junk and do more meal prep.
Most of the times when I forget to pack lunch or dinner, I forget to eat in college. Then when I get home all hungry, I eat easy fat food. Sometimes sugary things, sometimes take away. I want to meal prep more, so there’s always something healthy (or somewhat healthy) in the fridge to grab.
I want to gain muscles.
I’ll make a post about my body later. But what I can tell you now; my arms look skinny but they have no muscles. My legs are the opposite; I run and cycle a lot so they contain a lot of muscles. I’m just not in muscle proportion, haha.
– I want to do more with friends and keep better contact.
I love my friends, they are my

family

,

my support and my savers. I am so busy with school and work, that I sometimes forget to seek contact. I want to change that and see them more often.
– I want to feel good about myself
I don’t hate my body, but I struggle with habits I have. They make me feel insecure. I want to change, or make a start to change them. I hope the “new” me can give me confidence.

Have you made resolutions? Did you manage to work on them?! I’m curious!

Love,
xx Jazzie

BBG week 4

Hey everyone!

yeah, I’m already on week 4 of Kayla’s program. I’m starting to enjoy it, it feels nice to work yourself in sweat. ALthough it’s still hard to do it on school or work days. Like yesterday, I had school and a tea date with my best friend. I was back home around 9, and felt so tired.
So I did it the day after. I don’t think that’s a big problem.
I also have a question: Do you guys drink?
It’s, like we call it here (roughly translated) “partyweek”. It’s like carnaval. All the bars in my village open the doors, they sell drinks on the street. There’s also a fair; with a lot of fun things. Everybody meets eachother; we drink, we laugh, we recollect memories.. And everybody drinks.
I don’t drink much, but I also drink a few glasses. What do you think about that?
Here are my results from this week:

I hope you’re enjoying it as well,and that we can see some results in the following weeks!

Running is that bomb

Hey readers!
How is your day? I’m  currently sipping on my mint tea,  and sitting in the sun. Could life be any better?  Well maybe. I just had exams all week long, and I have one left next week. But I’m  currently focussing on tomorrow: I’m  gonna visit my university!  I need to make some sort of a test, and depending on the results I get in. You might understand how nervous  I am. I really want to get in. I ran, to relieve me from the stress.

And it helped. I’m  feeling more relaxed now. What is your trick to relax? Do you also go for a run? Or do you start reading or eating?
Love,

Feeling a bit sick, but got myself delicious soup!

Hello!

Remember my post about my cold feet yesterday? I should have known, haha. I was cold all day yesterday and today, and I didn’t knew why.
Untill 3 o’clock. I felt horrible, I had stomachpain and threw up.
I’m feeling a bit sick now.
I know that a lot of people have the flu, which is strange ’cause it’s already spring and almost april! Shouldn’t that be over now?
I also always thought that all of the RT4/vegan people had an amazing immune system, but clearly not, haha.
Thank God I have the best mum, ’cause she made me this amazing soup. This is currently my state of mind:

I call it; ‘Bored and feeling like crap’. Hooray.

A delicious vegan soup, with a lot of veggies! She really put everything in it. If this isn’t gonna make me better, what will?
At least I’m getting all my vitamins in. 🙂
A completely different subject; but do you guys have an Instagram account?
I do, and I’m looking for some refreshing, new accounts. So if you want me to follow you, post your name below.
Mine is the same as my blog: @rawjazzie.

Life goes by, and so do I.

Hello!

I’ve had a busy time. And not always in a good way. My grandpa died. And I got a new job, school is just the same (still a lot to do) and so am I. Or not precisely.

Not a lot changed, but I’m trying to make a change towards my attitude. I’m not your typical bitch, but I can be pretty rude sometimes..
I’ve wanted to change this for a long time, but it’s hard you know.
I’ve been this way for a long time, so why should I complete this change?
I think it’s because I really want it. I need it.
I need to be more loving, careing, and just relaxed.

I got this insight yesterday. That it’s never to late to make a change. That I want to be that loving- girl. Now that I don’t eat animalproducts (just veryvery occasionally, but almost never) anymore, it’s time to take it a step further.
Not only for the love for animals, but also for the love for people.
It’s not that hard to give someone a smile, to be more patient and to help the ones in need.
I’m just gonna give it a try.

Love,
xx Jazzie

Hospital food; while being a vegan

Hey people!

Time for another blog! Not a happy one this time, ’cause it’s about my last hospitalization. I went there for my IBD. It wasn’t long; I’m back already. But it was hard.
Not only the pain, but also the food. Food is an important factor in my health. If I eat proper and clean I have less pain and I recover in less time.
People with IBD often eat glutenfree and fatfree. So you would say they keep notice of that in the hospital.
Well, think again. I asked them for a vegan meal and that was were they made their first mistake.

Vegan? So you don’t eat meat then? It says here that you can have anything, so would you like the spaghetti with tuna or the patatoes with salmon?

I didn’t even know what to say.
Eventually I got my voice back and I said that I didn’t eat meat, fish or dairy because of my illness. (Thats not the only reason but I doubt that she’ll got it so I tought this was okay)
That she understood. I asked for some veggies, fruit and plain rice.
Within 20 minutes she was back with a small plate of rice and veggies and – Hallelujah- 6 banana’s.

Being a vegan in a hospital. It sure ain’t easy, but I managed.
I hope that next time I find someone who understand me, and the importance of clean food to a healing body.

Love,
