Hi everyone. I am German girl currently living in the UK with my English husband and black lazy rescue cat Jenny.
I'm a freelance seamstress specialising in vintage inspired clothing that I either design myself or make from original patterns.
I am also a runner, walker, hiker and cyclist and enjoy being active outdoors.
I have given up diets an calorie counting and aim for healthy eating and giving my body what it needs plus the occasional treats. This works pretty well as my body rewards me with running faster and longer every week. I can't sit still anymore and therefore wont.

Member Since: 2/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 4,648

My Goals:
Running a half marathon race in October 2011. I have conquered the distance in a training session with my husband the other week and feel now ready to race. In fact, I can't wait.
Goal time is under 2 hours. Watch this space!!!!

My Program:
I run A LOT!!! I try to aim for at least 5 times a week varying my runs from sprint sessions to short runs to long and slow and anything in the middle. It seems to work. I do not follow a particular plan. I listen to my body and when it wants to run fast I make sure it does. Sometimes it just doesn't want to run at all, then I go and take it for ice cream. I deserve it, my body deserves it. I love my body!!! It does great things. I also do strength training 3-4 times a week for 15-20 min.
I have not joined a gym and don't think I ever will again. I spend a lot of money on gyms in the past and never went. My gym is the great outdoors, a fitness mat and some free weights.

Personal Information:
28 years old
married to a wonderful husband (who is very fit...due to his job... so I need to keep up with him)
loves vintage clothing, vintage lifestyle
is a seamstress, making vintage inspired clothes (just in case you are interested in that sort of thing)

Other Information:

    My trip was amazing! I'll check out your blog :)

    I ate pretty horrifically on the trip, but since it was pretty much a once-in-a-lifetime event for me, I promised myself i'd fully experience the culture of a country. Annnd fish n' chips is definitely part of the english culture, haha. But I walked an average of 4-5 hours a day and went on 3 different mountain hikes, so I managed to not gain any weight....just haven't lost more.

    I made my calorie limit a bit stricter, I hope that will jumpstart some weight loss :)

    Hey! Wie geht's dir? Ich war jetzt so lange auf den Projektwochen und konnte da kaum ins Internet. Wir waren mit einem Projekt für Schüler unterwegs, da arbeiten die kids in Workshops mit einer Internationalen Band und bringen dann ein Musical auf die Bühne- ist sehr spannend und echt schön.
    Aber du kannst dir vorstellen, da ist nichts mit geregelten Mahlzeiten, also war es sehr schwer für mich vernünftig zu essen ;-) und es gibt ständig Snacks und was zu naschen, jedenfalls viel zu viel Zucker! In der ersten Woche war ich auch noch krank und alles ging drunter und drüber. Zeit zum Sportmachen hatte ich gar nicht- oder wenn mal Zeit war, war ich einfach total k.o. Aber trotzdem waren die Wochen sehr schön, und ich habe auch nicht zugenommen oder so, bin natürlich nur etwas aus dem Training. Mal gucken ob ich es wieder zuück schaffen. Drück mir die Daumen! :-)
    Ab heute kann ich also wieder loslegen, es hat richtig Spaß gemacht gestern lauter gesunde frische Sachen einzukaufen!
    Wie läufts bei dir, was macht dein Training? Und wie fühlst du dich?
    Liebe Grüße! emoticon
