Did you enjoyed new years eve? I certainly did. I went to a party of my neighbours; Paul&Paul. It was so much fun. There were “old people” that I already knew, and new people that I got to know. I talked with people from all over the world, and I got inspired by their happines and positive thoughts.
Me & my wonderful mum
But it’s 2015 now, and I’m feeling brandnew.
I haven’t eaten any meat or dairy yet; I haven’t feel temptated, but I’m sure that’s gonna come up someday.
I ate a lot of banana’s the past few days and I’m feeling a bit like a monkey. All I do is peeling banana’s… I’m not at Banana Island, but it sure feels like it. I’m eating this much banana’s because I wanted to start the year with somesort of a cleanse, and it gives amazing health results. School is gonna start tuesday and I’m not really feeling like it. There’s so much to do in so little time.. But I need to be motivated: I’m in good health, I now I’m capable of doing it; so let’s do it!
Today I want to blog about sport. A lot of people seem to think that they are living healthy, when they eat clean food and when they stop eating sugar. But changing your diet doesn’t make you healthy, of course it’s a good begin, and very important. But it’s not all. Your diet can give you more energy, less pain, a better skin and a good feeling.
So when you can have all of that with just a switch in diet, why would you exercise?
Because exercise gives you a positive feeling; it makes you fit, gives you a good condition. It can be a stress-releaser, or can give you space to think.
I myself sport 4/5 times a week. It may looks like a lot but it really isn’t. I go to yoga once a week; yoga makes me feel good about myself, it makes me relaxed. It also helpes me to reflect things better. I run 3/4 times by myself; I like running. I like the feeling you get in your legs; like you can’t stop and your legs are taking over. I also like to run in the cold, and to warm up during my run.
I’m also part of a running club, we run on sundaymorning. We have a trainer Susan, she stimulates us to run faster, better and she gives us cardio exercises to help us improve distance.
It helps me to relax and clear my mind.
I hope that everyone can see the importance of sport; it’s not only good for your health, it’s also mentally a good thing.
I want to talk about work and the importance of it. I know that working is the way to get money, to live a good life without some worries.
But is that all? Shouldn’t work be more then that? I believe that you should get everything out of your life, to live life to the fullest. And work is an important factor in this process.
When you have a boring, lame job, with unpleasant colleagues; how on earth would you be able to continue that FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? Right. You won’t.
Work should be a fun place to go; a place where you meet nice, new and inspiring people. People who want to help you be the real ‘you’. People who aren’t judgemental, but honest.
That’s why I decided to quit one of my jobs. My (former) boss liked it to swear at people. He called us terrible names, and expected us to just listen to it. I couldn’t do that anymore. I didn’t want to work: afraid of what he might say. Isn’t that horrifying? So I decided to work for ‘me’, for what I bij wanted, for my luck and not only for the money.
I felt brave today.
Hey my loves!
why oh why do I use caps lock? Well because you haven’t seen me in a while. And I’m happy to announce that I’m back!
WHY have I been gone? I had a hard time dealing with life and with myself. I was more aware of my ED and I felt terrible. I didn’t feel like ‘me’ but it felt like there was nothing I could do. But I feel so much better now. I decided that I won’t let a disease rule my life. I’m not sure if this will help me, but it feels like it does. And I get a lot of support from m boyfriend and parents. I still have a disease in my colon, which is also a big part of my life. Living healthy and sport regularly should help me feel better. I always tried, but didn’t made it far because of my ED. But now, I will.
Will you continue this journey with me?
I wanted to write something about one of my favorite things in the world: BEANS! And peas too, haha. I Just LOVE beans. I doens’t matter which one. You can make endless variations with beans. And they are healthy. I made this bean salad (see top image) to bring with me to school, and eveyone got jealous. They were all like: “Woaah you’re eating so healthy, it looks so good! I wish I could do that!”
People often say things like that. I find it hard to understand, if you want to be healthy and fit, it’s up to you to actually do that. No-one can do that for you, you need to make the decision to stop eating crap and start eating healthy. So when people say that, I often start laughing, and tell them that this is a normal snack for me. That I like to take good care of myself, and that it isn’t hard.
But for some people it is. They make excuses not to eat good.
But please, stop the excuses and start the realization.
Start to take of yourself. Start to eat fruit. Stop the fat.
YOU can do this, if you love yourself, I wouldn’t be a problem.
Just give your body love, and it will love you back.
I wanted to show you some pictures of me before I start this RT4 journey.
Don’t mind my face, I was (or actually am) a little bit tired.
As you can see, I’m not really fat. But I do have some extra fat, fat that doesn’t belong on my body.
I want to get rid of this fat, and most of all become very very healthy. From the inside and the outside. I wan other people notice hwo healthy I am. And I want to feel better. I want to get rid of ed thoughts (which I actually have a lot) and just look good.
RT4 is gonna help me, I really now that this lifestyle can help me forever.
school has started today… But to be honest, I kinda like it. 🙂 Not just working, but learning things. I like to learn new things and I have a lot of cool subjects this year. I follow philosophy, history and a few other things. I hope that this is gonna be a fantastic school year, full of good grades. ^^ I thought about how I could get my nutricients in at school. HOW do I do that?? I thought about carying all of my banana’s, but I can’t keep 10 banana’s in my bag. And they don’t fill me up enough, I always crave after my banana’s. Even when I eat 6 banana’s… So I made a white bean salad with paprika and onion, a fruitsalad, and a salad made of tomtatoes and cucumber.
My lunchbox, a delicious and fresh salad. The girl next to me was also eating, she first ate grapes (healthy) but after that opened a Mars-bar (unhealthy!). I think I stared at her. How could she do that? All the fat,sugars,E-numbers.. All of these things are bad for us. It was weird, ’cause she was, or that’s how it looked, being a healthy person with her fruit. But unfortunately, not all of us take good care of our body.
