It seems so easy; you start eating healthier, train more and you’ll instantly change into your insta idole under which pictures you always comment ‘#goals’. Nonetheless your motivation is usually completely gone within 2 weeks. You end up at the sofa buried under a mountain of unhealthy snacks. The only “training” you’re still doing is bringing your hand filled with food to your mouth. Cause; ‘that counts as a bicep curl right?’ No, not really. So how do you manage to change your lifestyle?  Continue reading

Hey guys, 

As you might have noticed by the lack of new posts, I’ve been totally neglecting my blog. Or well, that’s what it seems like and that’s how I felt about it. Right now, while typing this I realized that neglecting isn’t the right word. I’ve been thinking a lot and have actually written some posts but I did not publish them. So what have I been thinking and writing about? Continue reading

Hips don’t lie – sport injuries

Just Do It

After not having been to the gym for almost a week I decided to go with my friend. Happy of the thought of finally getting some action again I began my walk home from work.

As you might have read before, I gained a lot of weight in my gap year, to be a bit more precise; 7 kgs (15.4 pounds). Somewhere in the end of September/ beginning of october I decided to make some changes. I did not follow any type of program or diet, so what did I do? Continue reading
