I’m not Quite Satisfied with my Body… Yet

Personal

I feel a bit hesitant about publishing this post since we fortunately live in a time where self-love and body positivism has a major presence in our society and I don’t want to knock or derail it in anyway. I’m completely on board with the self-love movement and I think it’s really important to have a healthy relationship with your body.

Even though I’m currently at a normal, healthy weight I still want to loose a few kilos (or lbs. for ya’ll ‘Muricans). I have a cute amount of chubbiness around my mid-section, but alas, I still finding myself wanting to get rid of it! I just don’t like the idea of yellow, stored, unnecessary fat around my organs. I know I could teach myself to love and accept it, but I’m young and want to push my body to new heights before it’s too late.

I hope you’ll follow my little weight loss journey here on the blog as I give you weekly updates on how it’s going. I don’t believe in dieting or hardliner restrictions I’m just going to try to swap guilty habit junk foods for more whole foods! I’m very physically active and I’m going to continue exercising daily.   

I’m convinced that for sustainable results I can’t starve myself by obsessively counting calories. Therefore, my strategy is to lose weight slowly so I can acclimate myself to a healthier lifestyle with greater ease. There is only one way to loose weight which is to burn more than you consume- no one said you have to burn it all off in a month!  

Remember that everyone is different so what works for me may not be the best fit for you!  Now that I’ve shared this with the Internet there is no going back! I’m so excited!

10 Awesome Facts about Me

Personal

I have always enjoyed reading clickbaity, Buzzfed-esque 10things about me posts! Here is my first attempt (its not gonna be my last, I love the simple, self-centered, trashy high it leaves me with!)

  1. I’m a morning person. If I sleep until 8 am I panic and feel like I’m wasting the day away.  
  2. I used to be a party girl out every weekend. NowI don’t really drink alcohol.
  3. Although I am clownishly clumsy, I have never broken a bone.
  4. My favourite animals are whales. Nothing beats aFriday night watching listening to David Attenborough narrate about these majestic creatures.
  5. I LOVE the ocean. I spent my childhood summers on the beach so I always feel like I’m home when I’m by the ocean.  
  6. I’m a fiddlehead who loves making messes almost as much as I love yelling at my boyfriend to clean them up!
  7. I am incredibly clumsy and am always breaking electronics. My phone has a giant crack in it and I recently stepped on my boyfriend’s Ipad, cracking the glass screen (not sure how much longer I’m gonna have a boyfriend…)
  8. I have been to the Danish Music festival“Roskilde Festival” 7 times in a row.
  9. I used to be prejudiced towards Americans and anything to do with the Unites States. Now I’m moving there to marry an American –Prejudice never gets you anywhere! 
  10. I like working with kids but whenever I see a green, snotty nose I want to puke and crawl into a cave far away from any children.

If you have any fun facts about yourself please share in the comments! It’s always fun to read!

Something About Living a Year in a Symbioses

Personal

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’m a romantic (hidden under mynonchalant facade) so I will dedicate this post to writing about my one andonly valentine Jackson. We met in 2017 at a Hostel in Montreal. We quicklyfound we had good chemistry (hostel style) and 8 months later he came to Berlinto find me.

When we met each other again we almost immediately became a couple and moved in to a 6 square meter room in an apartment together (with 3 random, creepy roommates). Our relationship progressed quickly and although we hit the usual early turbulence that couples face when they move in together, we realised we’re perfect for each other.

In the year we have been together we haven’t spent more than5 weeks apart. Jackson is the most fun, inspiring, and pleasant person to be around-I never get sick of spending time together! He always supports meunconditionally and knowing that he has my back makes me feel safer than I haveever felt.  

Although we have already travelled and experienced so muchtogether, I know our adventures are barely getting started! We are going tomove together to the United States and live our minimalist lifestyle in a smallSUV that we will call home (#vanlife but in a more fuel-efficient crossoverSUV). I can’t wait for all this to happen and I’m so grateful to have met mysoul mate in a time and place I least expected it. I feel like I’ve won thelottery of life and could not be happier!
