I am blessed with three beautiful, strong women in my life. These women have taught me I should always have faith. That it’s okay to stand up for myself. That so much is possible, as long as I keep on trying. And that I should enjoy life, every second of every day.
These women are my great grandmother, grandma and mama. I love them very much.
I took these pictures January 2012 and I wanted to focus on the ‘age’. That time my great grandma was 85, my grandma 64 and my mom 45. I love that you can see they have lived by the wrinkles in their faces and look in their eyes. They don’t like these pictures because they think they look old. The way I see it I showed how they really are 😉 Not that young anymore, but still beautiful!
I’ve never been the Sporty Spice. I’m the kinda girl that likes to do nothing and eat chocolate whenever she wants. I never gained a lot and as long as I didn’t weight more than 62 kilos I was satisfied. But something has changed. I don’t wanna lose weight; I wanna feel fit! I’m gonna run 5 kilometres in June: I’m joining the Ladiesrun Rotterdam 2013!
When I was in Barcelona I got really fanatic. I trained for a week almost every day and I was surprised how fast I lost weight and more important; how fast I was able to reach those 5 km. I run it in 30 minutes but when I came back I started to get sick and didn’t go running that often anymore, so now I gotta start all over again. Running outdoors is so different from running on a treadmill but I’m sure I’ll be good by the time the run takes place. Until then I’m having fun training, mostly because of the amazing running gear in my favorite colors that I got from my mom, a friend and myself 😀 and the app I’m using: Endomondo.
This app is amazing and you can use it for every imaginable sport!
June 9th: Ladiesrun Rotterdam!!!
