I think everybody who lives in Cape Town, loves Cape Town – there’s just NO other way!

I have to give credit to my BFF Z1 though – without her I would not have grown to love the Mother City as much as I do! She took me to various coffee shops, restaurants and Markets {I’m starting to notice a weight gain pattern here Z1!?} which I immediately fell in love with; I took my family, friends and Boyf – to share with them the beauty in which we are surrounded!

The one place I came to LOVE is the Promenade – if you’re from Cape Town, you’ve been there! Although you’ll find a rather large number of joggers, strollers and Rollerladers you will soon come to notice the Beauty the Scenery offers!

I strongly suggest you take a stroll down one of the most beautiful ‘walkways’ in SA!

As mentioned previously; I have turned my life around – I came to a point in my life where I had to be Honest with myself! 

I started watching what I put in my mouth as well as how much exercise I do in a week – this seems to be the only {healthy} option out there and I’m sticking to it! Done!

So, this is what I have learned over the Course of {more or less} 4 months:

1. It is {VERY} POSSIBLE To say NO. Especially aimed at Sweet indulgences – the sugar will kill you!

2. It is possible {and VERY EFFECTIVE} to incentivise your Workout Routine. Work out 3 times a week for 2 week=new pair of Shoes. Your wallet and waistline thanks you!!

3. Loosing weight is Difficult. Deal with it!

4. What you put in your mouth; needs to be used effectively within your workout.

5. Working out doesn’t allow you to eat whatever the hell you want. This will ruin you. You will NOT lose any weight. {UPSIDE: You can indulge [after you’ve reached a stable weight] in something..NOT EVERYTHING}

6. Don’t REWARD yourself with food – in the end you are ONLY FOOLING YOURSELF.

7. Lastly – you will Thank YOURSELF for what you have achieved. You will feel better; your skin will look better; your hair, nails – everything will just be better!!

P.S – TOP TIP {BEAUTY}: Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise. You can Thank me later!

Happy Exercising!
