Glow up diaries part one: the struggle is real


it's been a few crazy weeks but I finally wanted to  start my glow up diaries. 
I've been doing really good, mentally and physically. I've lost 8 kg so far, and i'm still going. I don't have a particular end goal in mind, I just enjoy eating healthy and working out. Of course I still have my bad days, where i'm being lazy or eat unhealthy but unlike before, I don't stress about it. My mindset has changed a lot over the past few months. I try to be more relaxed when it comes to, well, basically everything.
Meditating when I feel bad or stressed out works for me. I like to lay on my bed, listening to the sound of rain (thank god for mp3), and just focusing on my breathing.
When it comes to food, I still struggle a bit, eating unhealthy snacks during the evening. But unlike before, when I start eating a bag of crisps, I can't finish it anymore. I try to keep it to one unhealthy thing that day.
Working out is going great. I'm currently going 3-5 times a week, mixing up cardio and weights. I'm still a bit terrified of doing some exercises, but the things I know, I love doing.
And as a reward to myself, I bought shorts and dresses for the first time in 5-6 years!
Let me give you a few photo's from my life, a little peak at what I eat and do..

Glow up diaries

Hi  and welcome to my blog!

I decided to start the Glow up diaries on my blog based on the glow up diaries from Alivia D'Andrea.
I felt so inspired to do my own version of this that I decided to do this as well.
My life has changed so much in the last few months  that I needed a fresh new start. I used to have a lot more blog post on this blog, but when me and my ex broke up, I kinda lost my passion for blogging and deleted everything... It was a very difficult period in my life, but i'm thankful for all my friends and family for supporting me.
I don't have any hard feelings or ill will towards my ex, and i'm hoping he will find happiness again. He's an amazing guy who will always have a place in my heart, but now i'm focusing on myself, my health and happiness.
I used to be such an active person when I first started dating my ex, but after an injury I had to quit.
Him being a couch potato didn't really help getting back on track, so I gained weight, felt bad in my own skin and didn't find the motivation to start exercising again.
After my breakup I decided to focus on my mental and physical health. I started going on a run every week, went out with my friends a lot and did things that generally made me more happy.
It still is a journey towards being 100% happy with myself but i'm getting there, and i'm going to take you all on a journey with me! With this blog i'm hoping to inspire people who are going through something similar, who could use a little motivation or just like ready other peoples journey.
