I run 5k for this little girl

She was about 9 years old. She was always told that she was chubby, bad at sport and that she really should lose some weight.

 

One evening her mother decided that it would be a great idea to go for a jog. She wore a pink tracksuit and looked like a little Piglet. She never went running before. She was gasping for air within the first couple of minutes and…

My Big Shift

August felt like the longest month known to men, yet also it feels like it went in a blink of an eye.

 

Big things happened:

  • I run my first 60 minutes, 7.5k . Me! The girl who at the beginning of the year was barely able to run 5 minutes
  • I moved my body consistently every day and actually loved it!
  • I doubled my business
  • I went on a girls…

The stories that keep you small

If you know me in real life you know that I am super introverted and pride of itJ

Hell, I even made up a story that I am the happiest working from home and not even seeing another human being for days on end. And honestly I can so easily implement that strategy.

 

I built another chapter into that story too: that I hate networking evens. Truth be told I went…

Are you feeling it too?

 

If you spent any time over social media over the last few days you might have seen the posts about: ”only six months of 2019 left!” and “2020 is going to be here in just short six months”, with the underlying message being: ”what the hell are you doing with your life”?

 

I wonder if that triggered you? Or maybe you are exactly where you want to be, on track…

What’s your life purpose?

Ever since I was little I was a little different. I liked to play alone, I liked to help around the house, and even then I didn’t have a sweet tooth:)

 

Ever since I was little I had an old soul, I think. I wanted to find my purpose in life. I questioned career advice given to me at school.

I had never been drawn to any of the traditional jobs…

What’s on your list?

I wonder if you are a fellow “Friends” fan? I must have watched all of the episodes multiple time and they still make me laugh.

 

Do you remember Ros’ laminated list of 5 celebrities who was allowed to sleep with?

 

Today I wanted to share my list, with a difference:) Because we’re not going to talk about sleeping with celebrities, but the experiences I want to have in my life:)

 

What do you want to do when you grow up?

“What do you want to do when you grow up?” my Dad used to ask me with an infuriating regularity. I hated that question because frankly I had no idea what the hell I wanted to do when I grow up. I was too busy being a teenager, having meltdowns and trying to get by at school.

 

The more he asked, the more annoyed I got, because I felt I…

My story

Last week you read an apology letter to my Body, and today I wanted to take it a step further and share a little bit more of my story with dieting and body image.

In this video I’ve shared what I was led to believe at a very early age, habits I developed and what I did to overcome them. I realised that what I was craving…

I cried in Rome

I spent four days in Rome recently crying my eyes out most of the time and I’ve never been happier.

 

These were tears of happiness, pure joy and gratitude.

 

20 years ago (can’t believe it’s been that long!) I spent 3 months in Rome, living with a host family and working as an au pair. It was the first time when I was going to be away for that long and…

A personal note

I’ve had an incredible, nourishing weekend. Perhaps one of those I will look back at and think: “it was life changing”.

It all kicked off with a lunch with a friend on Friday. We were meant to meet, have quick catch up over food, and then get on with our days. We parted 6 hours later because I had dinner reservation with the leading man of my life. We coached…
