7 Day Wellness Challenge

DSCF1737

Good morning guys!

Today is the start of my “new life” as I am starting a 7 days challenge to get myself back to a healthy lifestyle. The reason I am doing a 7 days challenge is to not put too much preassure on myself and thereby fail, but instead set my self a goal of 7 days.

I have struggled to be healthy lately in many ways. I have been snacking overly and not eating enough nutritious foods, I have not been drinking nearly enough water and my work out routine has been long forgotten. In addition to that I have been struggling to get to sleep and have a good sleep routine.

By not giving my body the right fuel it needs it has affected other areas of my life. I am starting to fall behind on uni work as I am having troubling concentrating, I feel out of energy, and less happy and I in general dont feel well on a daily basis.

Last week I tried to change my routines, but it fell trough. I dont think I felt motivated enough and it was easy to fall back into being unhealthy after just a day or two. I believe that lifestyles can be quite addictive and that is what I want to change now! My life style.

So in the 7 next days I have decided to stay away from snacks, work out 6 of 7 days and have salad of vegetables with every meal. I will drink between 1 liter and 1,5 liters of water a day and take my vitamins. I will also get up before early and go to bed early, with the exception of the days when I am working late, on which I will go to bed once I get home.

What I am hoping to get out of this are six things:

  1. To get a better health
  2. To feel happier in general
  3. To have an easier time concentrating
  4. To gain HEALTH weight and not unhealthy
  5. To get a better healthier looking skinn
  6. To start a better lifestyle for my self that I can uphold.

I will fill you guys in every day on my feelings and progress and any challenges that I might come across. I hope to inspire some of you and be open about difficulties I will face. It will also be a good motivation for myself to report my progress on the blog. Hopefully it will be a report of successes and not failures!

Well guys, as scheduled I am off on my run and stating the first day of my new healthy life! Wish me luck!

If any of you have some tips, advice or experiences on this please leave me a comment!

Have a super day everybody!

The day is finally here!

Good evening! I have just come home with Greg after picking him up at Heathrow airport. I cannot believe that he is finally here!

The funny thing it that it is exactly one year ago, I stood in that same terminal, getting ready to board my flight to Uganda, and had no idea that I would meet him there as another volunteer and fall in love.

We met when we were both volunteering in Uganda, where we worked at the same project, in a small village. I mostly worked in the orphanage and the health clinic connected to the project, and Greg did teaching and construction. Since then Greg has stayed with me in Norway and I have stayed with him in New Zealand.

Waiting for him in the arrivals gate at Heathrow today felt so special. So much has happened in a year and my life is very different now from what it was a year ago.

Life can be full of surprises, and now the new year can  begin.

Have a good night,

A New Year, a new beginning

Happy new year from London! And welcome to my blog! Although today is the second of January and not the first, I am saying happy new year today as my 2016 starts today! Firstly because after a great New Year’s Eve party with work, yesterday I was not exactly feeling ready to embrace the new year. But mostly because tonight I pick up my boyfriend Greg from Heathrow airport and we are starting our new life together. Greg is from New Zealand, and after being together for one year doing long distance and visiting each other, we are finally going to be living together and having a life together.

I will be blogging about our journey together from here, finding a home and getting settled.

As it is the start of a new year, I have of course made a list of New Year’s resolutions and this year I will work my best to follow them, and keep you in the loop as I do!new year resolution

Some might be more within reach than others, but it is a new year and a new fresh start and anything can happen!

I hope you will enjoy following my journey as I stive to become a better version of my self!

What are your resolutions?
