Hey guys, I have been missing for around a week or maybe more. In that time I have been keeping myself busy and had started going to the gym again. I took this time to really think about where my life is going. And even though this post is not really related to anything that I usually talk about on my blog, I thought it was some what relevant.
The first thing I wanted to work on was my body. I know like many women, we all complain about what are bodies look like. I saw this recent study where women were asked to name the one aspect of their body which they loved, and 99% of women struggled to name something. I thought this was really sad, women have such a unique and fantastic structure and we should be proud of the way we are. However, personally I wasnt happy with my body shape either. I had gained alot of weight due to high levels of stress during the semester of University. Therefore last week I made it a goal that I would get back in shape and love the body I am in. This wasnt easy because I wasnt seeing instant results however now being the 6th day of my goal, I have gymmed 5 days in a row. I am so proud of myself and I am slowly seeing results and I feel more confident to wear clothes other than flowy tops.
The second thing I changed was my diet. I was over eating, thats not the problem though. I was overeating on junk. I often ate out 3/4 times a week and it was definitely showing on my body. I have switched to green tea and decreased my sugars and fatty foods. Instead I opt for healthier options. However, I find that completely taking out all the junk food is detrimental and often leads me to binge eat. So therefore I have resorted to a 80/20 ratio. Where I eat 80% healthy and 20% unhealthy (or something I love like tim tams :) ).
Ok this is the end of my rant :). Thanks for those who read through it! I will continue to upload more fashion and beauty blogs. I also have some DIY fashion tips coming up!
Keep Smiling :)
