I am writing a book!

I have such exciting news for you! I am going to write a book!

When I started blogging in January of 2015 (you can read my very first post here) I had no idea it would lead to this! I had no idea that writing would become such a big part of my life! If you ask my teachers from school, there is no way they would have guessed this!

The more I blogged the more I found out how easy it came to me and how much I enjoyed it. I also received amazing feedback which of course boosted my confidence. So thank you to everyone who has given me feedback, you know who you are 😉

I started playing around with the idea of writing a book. How cool would that be? To have my name on a book. A book that I have written! With knowledge that I have to share! And that people would actually read!! Really really cool!

In my mind that would be something cool to do for the future!

A few weeks ago my health coaching school (IIN) started advertising a book course they offer. Again my mind thought, yeah I’ll do that some day!

But then something interesting happened. There was another little quiet voice in the back of my head saying: Why not do it now? The other louder voice said: Don’t be silly! I have nothing to write about and it’s too much work, I’ll do that some day.

For some reason I started paying more attention to the quiet smaller voice. Maybe that’s all the new meditation I am doing? Who knows 😉

In any case I signed up and the course started last week! OMG!

They encourage you to tell all your friends and family that you are on this journey, so this is what I am doing: I AM GOING TO WRITE A BOOK!

I don’t know anything about writing a book and I have no idea where to start, but I have faith and I know it will be an amazing journey! There is no time like the present, right?

What are you not doing that you want to do? Maybe it’s time to listen to that silent, quieter smaller voice in the back of your head? What is it saying to you? Want to share it with me?

9 Weight Loss Myths Busted!

Did you know that Europe had the second highest proportion of overweight or obese people in 2008, behind the United States? It is estimated that over half of the EU’s population was overweight or obese in 2008. Globally, the share of adults (aged 20 years and over) who were thought to be overweight or obese was estimated to be 35 %. This share rose above 50 % in Europe and the Americas [1].

Obesity is a serious public health problem, as it significantly increases the risk of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type-2 diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart diseases and certain cancers.

For the individual, being overweight is strenuous on the body and can be linked to a wide range of psychological problems. For society as a whole, it has substantial direct and indirect costs that put a considerable strain on healthcare and social resources.

Why is it so hard to maintain “normal” weight? The diet industry is a multibillion-dollar industry, so why is it not working?
