I wish there was already snow where I live. It would make my walks a lot more magical!
Recently, I love taking walks and being in nature. It is far from the most rigorous form of exercise, but you do not always have to force yourself to sweat and be out of breath! On my walks, I get the chance to destress and reconnect with nature and my body. My body is not my enemy, it is my friend!
(Also, take a moment to appreciate the amazing photograph and the photographer’s tumblr!)
First of all, a huge thank you and welcome to all the new followers!
I am having the best intentions to be more active on this little blog again. My views on fitness, health, weight loss and especially writing about those issues have been very confused (will write a blog post on it) and on top of that, I did not live as healthy as I wish I would have. Therefore, I hesitated to post on tumblr. But I will be back very soon!
Regarding my last post (which was in German, so I thought I might explain it): This lovely girl, who writes amazing poems in German on her blog opensourcepoetry, responded to something I have written before on Viennese people and told me how there are also warm and friendly Viennese people and I compeletly agree with her! My description of them in one of my past posts has been a very generalised one and hugely influenced by my mood at that time. Thanks again for pointing this out to me!

Da hast du sehr wohl Recht! Ich glaube, ich habe mich, als ich diesen Text verfasst habe, gerade besonders über die paar unfreundlichen, schlecht gelaunten Leute aufgeregt, die einem eben mal begegnen. Und mir in meiner Heimatstadt wohl mehr auffallen und mich aufregen, als an Urlaubsorten, an denen ich meist recht entspannt bin. (Außerdem klingt auch der Dialekt der Wiener in meinen Ohren unsympathisch, was natürlich rein gar nichts mit den Menschen zu tun hat, aber leider trotzdem in mein Bild von ihnen einfließt.) Trotzdem hätte ich nicht so stark verallgemeinern sollen. Daran muss ich mich immer wieder erinnern! Danke, dass du mich darauf aufmerksam gemacht hast (und meinen Blick ein wenig mehr auf die warmherzigen Wiener gelenkt hast, von denen es ja genug gibt).
I am sorry for not posting in such a long time, but not really because I am not sure what kind of tumblr I want to have. I would like to make it more interesting / personal / pretty / relevant / passionate. We’ll see how it will turn out. x Lia
I could live off of sweets and chocolate and my family wouldn’t care.
But as soon as I prepare myself a salad to eat along with my lunch (fish and rice), my brother starts asking me whether I was getting enough nutrients.
I could go weeks without eating any fruit, and my family wouldn’t even notice.
But as soon as I eat an apple (along with my normal dinner), my mother asks if I was anorexic.
Really? Do you know anything about nutrition? How messed up is your perception of food?
Also, they don’t even care that I am unhappy with my body and most of all my life style.
It’s even more than that: They want me to stay the same, because losing weight can be restrictive and exhausting. They don’t see that the temporary hardship of losing weight is nothing compared to the pain I feel everyday because of the way my body looks and how uncomfortable I feel because of my life style.
I can’t wait until I move out and can decide on my own what food I want to buy and when and how much to exercise and don’t have to listen to their accusations of being anorexic. I mean, it’s them who are living a life style which is increasing their risk of diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, lack of vitamins and a ton of other diseases! Why they don’t want me to live a healthy lifestyle, that is also making me HAPPY, is beyond me.
