About the blog

Welcome to the ‘About the blog’ page of “The journey to my personal legend”.

The story behind the blogname
If you’ve ever read The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho you will know what the term personal legend means. I can try to explain this myself, but in all honesty, who can do this better than Mister Coelho himself?

“It is your blessing, the path God has chosen for you here on Earth. Whenever a man does that which gives him enthusiasm, he is following his Legend. However, not everyone has the courage to face up to his own dreams” – Paulo Coelho

Call God whatever you want, I don’t care or mind. I personally believe in the power of the Universe. You know; what comes around, goes around. Karma. That kind of thing. No matter what you believe in, you can’t deny the fact that we’ve been put onto this Earth to fulfil a purpose. Whether it’s finding the cure for cancer or becoming the perfect housewife, we all have our own legend to own up to.

At this point in my life I feel like a big part of my legend is to become fit and healthy. It’s to lose all those extra pounds and inspire others along the way. I’ve created this blog so I can live up to this quest and take you with me on this journey. The journey to my personal legend. The journey to a healthy BMI.

I hope I can be your source of inspiration when you’re having a hard time. I am not a blogger who only shares her successes with her readers. That’s not what I’m about. Losing weight isn’t easy BUT it’s worth it. Guaranteed! I’d rather spend 3 years of my life working hard and shedding all those extra pounds than being overweight and feeling uncomfortable for the rest of my life.

What I like to write about and share with you:

  • My weightloss successes and struggles
  • My weightloss tips
  • Recipes
  • Home organization
  • Money organization
  • Personal projects such as ‘101 things to do in 1001 days’
  • DIY’s
  • Books, movies and tv-shows

And whatever is on my mind when I feel the need to blog. The main focus will lie on how to get healthy and fit in an everlasting way.
