{WISE WORDS} BALANCE

I’m so balanced these days you can call me Buddha… OK so yes, I’m entering my 4th week of not working out and not eating such a balanced diet and I’m ok with it. I’m OK with it because…

10 positive things changing your lifestyle will do for you

I have seen so many positive changes to my well-being since this post that I think it’s time to put them in writing and maybe this will motivate you to do the same (if that’s what you long to do) because frankly, I think it’s worth it and every woman deserves to feel good. 1/It will improve your skin. Granted giving smoking in 2012 did wonder to my skin but replacing my coke zero by 2Lt of water a day and eating clean has massively improved my skin. I’ve never worn a lot of make-up but these days, I’m often surprised how nice and soft my skin feels before even putting some BB cream, considering I’m 46 years old and had no work done, Botox or anything. 2/You will radiant The skin is one thing but I think radiance comes from the energy you exude, the spark in your eyes and “you look radiant” was definitively the compliment I got the most at the start of my journey and giving up processed foods for foods packed with nutrients will …

My journey to a healthier, leaner, fitter version of myself Part 1. >> www.karinecandicekong.com

My journey to a fitter, healthier version of myself

  Since so many of you have been following my journey on Instagram, I thought it would be useful to share my journey to a fitter, leaner, healthier version of myself or “How to get fit and healthy in your forties” with more information than Instagram allows. So here are a few facts about myself: Age: 45 years (46 on 30/03/2015) Starting weight on 27/12/2014: 67 kg, current weight: 63 kg, weight loss: 4kg, height: 1m55 Fitness: @Kayla_itsines BBG, Bikram yoga, cardio classes at the gym, 45 min. walk to the office Nutrition: 90% clean eating. Alcohol once a month. Health: BMI overweight (calculate your BMI here), terrible IBS, occasional backaches Weight goals: 10kg in total (need to lose an extra 3kg on top of what I’ve already lost to reach a healthy BMI)

The art of letting go…

I wish I had more time to post longer posts these days but we are incredibly busy getting ready for the BODIE and FU pop-up store at the Vipp flagship store in Copenhagen and finalising our debut print collection. So rather than getting completely stressed out, I’ve decided to “let go” and do short blog posts until time is on my side again. One thing I really enjoyed reading last weekend and which I think you will enjoy too, was “How Mastering the Art of Letting Go will Change your life” by Leo Babauta. Babauta says that we keep things (clutter) in our home for various reasons. They make us feel secure and safe, they give us comfort, memories and hopes for the future and I can see that. Most of the things in my home are there for a reason and I suspect in yours too…and often there is an emotion/souvenir attached to it. I wrote here how I was starting to let go of the idea of becoming a mother again but this …
