Since 2009 when I first joined Spark, many things have happened: I ran a 5K, a Half Marathon and completed a University BA and MSC degree. I produced and directed three plays, I have become a full-time tutor, I've moved flat and I have picked up my violin again!

2013: I want this to be a year full of smiles :)
I have decided to quit being stressed and worried (it just makes you feel horrible) and start treating myself well. I have managed in 6 weeks to lose 4 kg and my AIM for this year is to drop the other 5kg and start to sculpt my body. I want to start maintaining my weight and be proud of myself.

***********************

I'm on this path, to be a healthier woman and to make the right choices for the rest of my life. I want to be a fit mum and a fit grandma and for now, a fit and healthy girlfriend!

I love to swim, bike and run. I'm also trying to practice more yoga and look to make it part of my daily routine. My biggest trouble is maintaining a healthy and mindful lifestyle. I am looking to challenge myself in the Long-term and through that I strongly believe I will achieve my goal weight and maintain it.

I am a very positive person and seek always to see the good in people and situations. I want to make sure that I always do this and influence others to do the same. I am on this journey not only to stay healthy but also to find peace and calm when I feel stuck in stressful situations.

'I have become my own version of an optimist. If I can't make it through one door, I'll go through another door - or I'll make a door. Something terrific will come no matter how dark the present.' - Tagore

I am looking forward to the challenges ahead! I hope to approach them mindfully and with strength.

    Glad to hear to had such a good workout. Just curious though...what did you put on that stirfry? I do not mind eating some of the same things over and over again if I could find some different seasonings or marinades that could change the flavor just a little.

    I know what you mean about the holiday season and living with guys who are not subscribed to your healthy living plan. My boyfriend is obsessed with chocolate and doesn't believe it's a meal without some carbs/grains! So I feel ya. But Paleo would still be interesting to try in January. Sounds like your regimen is really good without the paleo anyway!

    Thanks for the compliments! I feel like my lower body is looking toned, too but I always have issues with my midsection! *sigh* Anyway, I'm gonna go catch up on YOUR vlogs! I'll leave you my thoughts! :D
