Project Angel…

Hi genies
Today I have a little announcement to make which I am really excited but also a bit nervous about. For the past few years I have been trying to get into shape and lead a healthier lifestyle. However, I always seem to only stick to my goals for a short and intense period of time and then just forget all about it. I feel like I really want to change something about this and try to make working out and being healthy part of my everyday life. My main goal is not necessarily to lose weight but rather to gain strength and endurance, improve my health and feel good in my skin.

I love how I feel when I am eating well and working out and I don’t want to take my health for granted just because I am still young. So now back to my announcement – rather than doing a crash diet and really hard work outs for only a couple of months I have decided to take this journey a little slower and thereby hopefully making it stick and becoming a crucial part of my daily routine. I am embarking on an adventure that will lead me to a healthier and fitter self. I have planned this project over the duration of one entire year so that I have a lot of time to obtain -and especially maintain- my results. But why is it called Project Angel? Well, I thought the name was suitable as the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show airs tonight and all the models are really toned and in shape so they are a great source of motivation;) haha Additonally, I wanted to start my journey already and not only in January 2014 because I want to complete this task and stick to it and I feel like so many people have the New Year’s resolution to get into shape but somehow they let it slip after only a few months and I don’t want to be one of them. And of course the fact that I have started my little experiment now should prevent me from eating too much and not “moving” enough during the Holiday Season…hehe

I have split my project into 3 month-sections where I’ll be focusing on different goals in order not to get bored and to keep my motivation. To start off with I am trying to get back into the habit of working out by completing 10 minute work outs daily and running at least once a week. This way, I’m slowly easing myself into moving my body more but I’m not “killing” my motivation by forcing myself to achieve unrealistic aims that I cannot live up to.
I’ll soon be posting about the start of my project in a little more detail but I just wanted to warn you guys in advance…;) Maybe some of you would care to join me on my journey?

Take care!

xx love
