My story

Here is my journey so far.

It all began when I and my family came home from our vacation in Thailand in June 2011. When I was looking through the pictures I saw that I didn’t look quite as I thought, or as I used to look. So that’s when I decided that I wanted to change the way I looked.

I began slowly with eating a bit healthier, less snacks. And I added a few workouts a week. I did mostly things like Zumba, Body balance, Sh’bam, Indoor walking and shorter running sessions (2K)on the treadmill. Of course I did some strength training as well, but not much, as you can see very clearly on how my body looks in the 2nd (skinnyfat and pretty weak). For a week or so I also tried to eat less than normal, but that didn’t help at all and it’s probably the worst thing you can do to your body, so DON’T!

[Calorie intake when losing weight: 1200 kcal at the end of the day (which means more than 1200 kcals consumed, and then worked off so that I landed on 1200 kcals)]

Before reaching the state I was in in the 2nd picture I decided to change both my diet and my workouts a bit. I was more and more sliding in to the clean eating – diet, and I added more running to my workouts.

After reaching the “skinny”-state (it wasn’t really skinny if you compare it to how skinny some people are), I needed to step it up a notch. Going to the gym at least 3 times a week, a little running on the treadmill (3-6 k) and lots of weightlifting and full body exercises! (On the 2nd and 3rd pic my weight is pretty much the same which means much less fat and more muscles on the 3rd) I try to eat lean and clean, but sometimes I need to eat some regular bad food to lol :). Nowadays I try to go to the gym 4-5 times a week and do cardio 2-3 times per week. I switch the fast carbs for complex ones and I try to keep my meals clean, but its hard when you live with somebody who needs to eat 3500 kcals per day and your family pops in every weekend with lets say, not so healthy food! :) But I try!

This picture is the last one taken of these! I'm still pushing forward and I will never stop striving for a better me, both physically and mentally! :)
