I'm an adventurous, 22 year old girl with a lot of ambition! I love food and is in need to have a healthy relationship with it! I am currently living in Thailand where I teach english, but my heart lies in South Africa where my friends and family lives. I am very energetic and love the outdoors! Because of the lovely and delicious Thai food I have recently indulged in, I have packed on a few pounds. So now I am working on shedding them and the extra I brought with me from South Africa!

My Goals:
Firstly, I want to get my mindset right. Too often I had an unhealthy relationship with food, always feeling guilty when I ate too much or binged, but never wanting to face the problem head on. I've always seen certain foods as ''bad''. So for now I want to turn my relationship with food to a healthy one.
I'm sure when I get that settled, the weight would start dropping. I want to lose around 25 pounds. because I am currently living in Thailand, none of my family and friends (except my boyfriend) will see me in a very long time, so when that time come I want to look as fit and healthy as ever, leaving them in awe! Haha!

My Program:
My program involves counting calories. I try to stay between 1000 and 1200 a day.
I am also doing the Insanity workout program and have now started with my second week. I totally love it and can feel the changes happening in my body already!

Personal Information:
My name is Monique and I'm 22 years old. I come from South Africa but i am now living in Thailand where I'm an english teacher. I also have a bachelors degree in Genetics, Human Physiology and Psychology and hope to return to university to get my Masters degree in Musictherapy. If you have any questions you could comment on my sparkpage on even email me at euqinom88@gmail.com

Other Information:
I am a very colourful and creative person, and have many aspects to my personality! I love music and play piano, guitar and the ukulele (an instrument I mastered in Thailand) and also love to sing! I'm also an artist of some sort and love painting and sketching. I totally love baking and cooking and I'm always busy with new ideas! I love the outdoors...I like hiking and jogging with my dad who is a very big inspiration to me as he motivates me to stay healthy. He has been the perfect example to me of what a healthy person should be like, inside and out! I love going to the beach, my favourite place in the whole world is Cape Town, South Africa. I'm also a total Jesusfreak and will always give all the credit to Him. Without Him, I would be nothing...

    You burn 800 calories a day! That's so impressive! Wow! I hope that motivates me to work out more! My program is going well, I've been working out 3-5 a week. And I just started swimming again which I love. I have theumatoid arthritis in forty joints, so it's nice to have a workout where I can push myself and there's not a lot of joint pain.

    I'm totally with you on the eating too much healthy food. I ate like four apples the other day. It was like I forgot that that's still 400 calories! Embarrassing.
