This is the first of a series of blog posts in which I write about apps and websites I use that (have) help(ed) me to lose weight.

The first one I wanted to write about is Daily Yoga, because I have been using it for half a year by now and am still incredibly happy with it. Please note that this post is not sponsored in any way, and really just my opinion about the app.

I have cut this review up in three parts, as I want to give you guys a general introduction on how the app works and give a bit more information about the free and premium version of the app.

Minor victories

When I was getting on the scales this morning I was expecting a small loss. I had been exercising quite a bit this week and had been mindful of what I ate. Imagine my surprise when the scales indicated that I weighed 67,0 kg. A 0,3 kg (or 0,6 lbs) gain compared to last week!

I was trying to analyze where I had gone wrong. Maybe I didn’t watch my food as well as I thought I did? Could I be retaining water? I eventually shrugged, sat down on my couch and had my coffee. I was still not going to let it ruin my day. Better luck next week.

After browsing on my phone for a bit I decided to get up and do my Yoga. After all it is my day of, so that means approx. 30 minutes of Yoga. In turned on my Daily Yoga app (review coming soon) and started doing the exercises. Now, somewhere at the 20 minute point the app asked me to do a tree pose. Now I have been able to do a modified tree pose, which looks like this: Continue reading

2017: goals and expectations

As promised, I will be entirely dedicating this blog post to my goals and resolutions for 2017. Just to keep everything nice and tidy, I have decided to divide this post up like the one in which I reflected on 2016.

Weight-loss

Well my first goal for this year is to loose the weight I gained during Christmas and New Years. I really decided to just let myself go, and deal with the aftermath once the holidays were over. And as today is January first I have immediately started to watch what I am eating even though my fiancé has really been tempting me with lots of yummy, not so healthy food haha.

Once I have accomplished this, I intend to maintain this weight for the rest of the year. Now, I know from previous attempts that this is going to be a bit of a challenge, but I have never been this determined to keep off weight before. So yes, I really, actually think that I have got this! 😀

Weight-loss update and new sleeping schedule

Apologies in the delay in posting. I had written the majority of this post on Sunday, but could not get around to finishing it as I was simply too tired. In this post I would like to give you guys a short update on my weight-loss, as well as a longer update on my experiences with my sleep psychiatrist.

It seems like my body really likes to stick around the 67.4 kg (or 148,5 lbs). Last week I managed to get down to 67,2, but due to a not so clever (or healthy) food choice on Saturday I was back at 67,4 on Sunday. To be honest, I am actually fine with this (not with the food choice though haha). True, I would ideally like to lose another 1,4 kg (or 3 lbs), but I am not really in a rush to do so. I already like the way I look and am really satisfied with my clothing size, so it’s all good. Continue reading
