trying to get my shit together.

Hey guys,

so I thought I’d let you know what I’ve been trying for years and now seriously want to pursue… Get serious about working out and eating healthy.

I hope that writing this down and sharing my progress with you might actually help me do this for real now. I still have to figure out how often I can go to the gym now that university starts on Monday and I have a lot to learn about meal prepping. At the moment I will have Wednesdays and Fridays off, but I seriously have to find a part-time job. Being used to earning money and now being completely cut off, will definitely be hard. I do have a few savings in  my account, but turns out I’ve been spending more money than ever this past month. This will be a really hard time.

So, back to me trying to work out more and eating more healthy. I have a gym membership for about three years now and there were times where I went regularly and times were I didn’t go for months. I recently got back into going at least two to three times a week with a friend of mine. We’re usually just hitting up some of the courses that my gym offers and feel really good afterwards.
Thanks to YouTube though I’ve been following a lot of Fitness channels and been loving them ever since. Didn’t really change anything about my motivation in actually working out though. Yesterday I was at the FIBO in Cologne though and I actually got the chance to meet two of my favorite YouTubers (Nikki Blackketter and Rob Lipsett) – super nice guys by the way – and just being there and the vibe that was going on, made me want to be serious about this now. I can’t always just say I’ll do it, I have to start and once I’ll see the results I know it was worth it.

Of course another big part in working out and getting my body into the shape I want it to be, is eating healthy. I’ve been vegan for almost two years now and I have to admit I haven’t really been the healthiest one. I like to eat, I like food and I looooove sweets. In my opinion eating healthy doesn’t mean you’ll have to cut out special foods and all that – it’ll just makes you crave the more if you do – you just have to find the right balance. I thing that starting Uni on Monday will actually help me to get into being more healthy easier, because I am forced to meal prep as I have no clue if they have any appealing vegan options there.

So in the following months I’ll try to keep you updated about my progress with meal prep posts and maybe a few fitness posts, even though I’m not sure how to actually write and structure on (any tipps?). I also put it on my bucket list to get more into blogging now that I will have more time to dedicate to this blog. Hope you guys are excited and will follow my blog to not only see if there will be a transformation in my body, but also how things at university will go.

I’d love for you to share your stories with me. Just leave a comment and let me know if you already started working out more and getting healthy or if you do want to start with me – always makes more fun when you know you’re not alone and can share your struggles and experiences. Until next time – xo

 

PS: I also had to share the pictures I made with Nikki and Rob at the FIBO 2017.

Life changing decision?!

Hey guys,

I haven’t posted in a while. But I hope I’ll get the chance to post more starting in April.

But let’s just get into the reason why I named the post the way I did.
I decided to quit my job and go to university. I will be studying International Business Administration and I am suuuuuper excited about it, which makes me realize how much I missed studying.

The decision wasn’t made over night though. I knew I wanted to study for a long while and after finishing my apprenticeship, it just didn’t feel like the time was right just yet. I wanted to work for a little while, earn money and experience. Still, the decision to start now kind of came out of the blue, but I didn’t feel comfortable in doing what I was doing and I know that I don’t want to work as an assistant all my life. I need to challenge myself again, I need to learn more stuff and find a more fulfilling job.

I am super excited about all the things that are about to come and can’t wait for uni to start in April.

If you experienced something like that and kind of stopped doing what you did and started walking down a completely different path, let me know in the comments below as I would love to hear about your experiences.

See you next time  – xo.
