My long journey to a healthy lifestyle

As i mentioned before i'm currently into clean eating and exercises, but it's not like i'm crazy about diets and sport, neither do i desperately want to lose weight.  The reason why i decided to do it is because i want to have a nice toned body (currently my body looks like a pale marshmallow) not be ashamed of wearing very tight clothes and just feel good about myself really. I also have been feeling very exhausted during all these assignments time in uni and i didn't want to get addicted to energy drinks and coffee, that's why i started to think about changing my eating habits, but taking only a small step at the time. 
 The fights with my weight started when i was 12 years old. At that time i was a bit chubby but everyone tried their hardest to make me feel the fates person on earth. After all the bullying at school, hearing some offensive comments from my friends or even getting "are you really gonna eat all that?" from my family make me so angry and upset that i stopped eating for some time at all, then i started to drink teas without sugar, trying some healthy dishes without going all fuuu.  And after some time i started to look slimmer, i think it was also because my body was still growing and i didn't really starve myself all time, i always have been eating sweets and i will eat sweets till the day i die, but my main point is that at that time it was easier to lose weight than now. To be honest i don't want to lose weight i just want to learn how to stop myself of eating everything tasty in the house in one day and be able to eat only at times when i'm really hungry.

So now my current favourites in food and drinks are fruit and vegetable smoothies, cream soups, whole grain cereals, oat porridge and egg omelette with tomatoes. As a snack i choose to go with nuts, rosins and bio yogurt.

My favourite smoothie recipes are:

1. 2 bananas, 1 apple, 100g of strawberries and a bit of lemon juice blended all together.

2. 50g of grapes, 100g of a different kind of berries and lettuce mix it all together and enjoy!

That's all with eating, for my workouts routine i'm doing a bit of aerobics just to worm up a bit and then i'm doing a 30 min exercise of Pop Pilates from Cassey's Youtube channel

I will put these videos here in case if you guys will want to try them out

1. For warm up

2. Pop Pilates for the whole body and  a summer slimdown programme

A day in the life

Hello everyone i can't believe i've just finished my 2nd year in university (one more year and hello scary  adult world) time goes  by so fast and i'm scared that i might miss something out in this life. That's why after my long depression in winter, awfully huge amount of work and lack of energy, i've decided to man up and get back to business. 

I know it will sound cheesy but I'm trying to  learn enjoy all the good things i have now and take the most of what i have. I've wrote a list of books  that i want and need to read, find old movies to watch and cheerful music to keep myself a  company. Moreover i've finally decided to get my chubby bum into shape, so i found those really challenging pilates workouts with a great, but annoyingly enthusiastic trainer that i'm trying to do at least three times a week, so i could finally start feeling those muscles growing ! I actually trying to eat clean as well but i'm really rubbish at it. I can't resist any form of chocolate or  Neapolitan's ice cream as well as PIZZA oh i'm definitely addicted to yummy food. But the good thing is that i learned to like healthy meals as well. So my current favourites are cream soups and smoothies. In my next post i'll tell about my long and sometimes challenging journey to a healthy lifestyle ^^
But going back to my main point, as part of my own way of getting back on track i've decided to say "yes" to any kind of opportunity that would come out. I will be working as a volunteer on a Vintage Festival in Jule as well as working as an assistant in a private hospital so i could earn some money for my "independent woman" lifestyle. But at the moment i've already applied for Jeffery West shoe competition and i don't know if i'll be successful or not but it always nice to think that you've tried your best. In addition to that i've been helping out at our university's UON Fashion Graduate Show that happened last week. To be honest i always get a bit over excited about everything and when i picture something in my head it is usually totally different of the reality. So i was a bit disappointed of doing basically nothing for whole day, apart of watching the actual show, taking pictures and eating a lot of free food. But overall i enjoyed talking to people, watching some talented fashion graduates designs and catching a tan outside, and this experience gonna look good on my cv as well, so no regrets just loove .
Anyway this post is already too long to keep you interested that's why it's a picture time now!
