Me and hubby at Adele's concert in Verona, Italy
Hi and welcome to my Spark page! My name is Andreja, I'm 31 years old and I live in Slovenia. I started my weight loss journey a few years ago when I found Sparkpeople "by accident", and it has been a great experience! Now, both my husband and I are Spark enthusiasts. I have lost a considerable amount of weight already, and I'm not giving up despite the struggles. I am getting rid of the excess weight for good! At the same time I am aware that this is not just about losing weight - it's also about feeling better about myself and most of all, being healthy. And it is a lifelong journey!
I'm always happy to make new friends, everything is so much easier with support from other people who are going through similar experiences - so please contact me if you want!
Cardio: workout videos 5 days per week; walking daily - 10,000 steps
Strength training twice per week
Tracking everything I eat, staying close to my calorie range
(5% Challenge commitment)
Eating within my calorie range (depends on my exercise, but it's quite small because I'm only 5'2); burning 3000cals a week with the help of workout videos (Turbo Jam, dance workouts and strength training); striving towards an overall healthy lifestyle with as little stress as possible.
I love reading (in different languages), Turbo Jam, walking...
Life is busy at the moment so I might dissapear for a while - but I always come back!

~~~~****~~~~ ""I CHOOSE"" ~~~~****~~~~
to live by choice, not by chance;
to make changes, not excuses;
to be motivated, not manipulated;
to be useful, not used;
to excel, not to compete.
I choose self-esteem, not self-pity.
I choose to listen to my inner voice,
Not the random opinion of others.
~~~I will choose to be me~~
~~~~****~~~~ ""What will you choose today?"" ~~~~****~~~~
It made me smile when I read your post! It was great to hear from you!!

“For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case,
too early to be whoever you want to be.
There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want.
You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing.
We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it.
And I hope you see things that startle you.
I hope you feel things you never felt before.
I hope you meet people with a different point of view.
I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not,
I hope you have the courage to start all over again.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald ~

Thank your for your comment on my blog. And thank you for reminding me that, yes we all have bad day, but it has to remain the exception. It doesn't matter how other treats me, if I let their bad manners dictate the way I react, I'm the loser. Changes begin with me.
Have a good day!

Eat the damn chocolate cake, get your hair wet, love someone, dance in those muddy puddles,
tell someone off, draw a picture with crayons like you're still 6 years old and then give it to someone who is very important to you. Take a nap, go on vacation, do a
cartwheel, make your own recipe, dance like no one sees you,
paint each nail a different color, take a bubble bath, laugh at a corny joke.
Get on that table and dance, pick strawberries, take a jog, plant a garden,
make an ugly shirt and wear it all day, learn a new language, write a song,
date someone you wouldn't usually go for, make a scrap book, go on a picnic,
relax in the sun, make your own home video, kiss the un-kissed,
hug the un-hugged, love the unloved, and live your life to the fullest.
So at the end of the day, you'll have no regrets, no sorrows, & no disappointments
Remember ALL these to live YOUR life to the fullest!
