Healthy Eating Plan

   Sorry there has been a lack of posts lately. I started ballet back up after my winter break this past Tuesday, and before then I was preparing for it by going to my old studio for several hrs. each day. And when I wasn't at the studio I was at home going on a walk or working out and stretching in my room. So, though it's not the best excuse in the world, I was quite busy.

   On another note, I wanted to tell you all about the diet that I've recently started. Honestly, it's not really a diet. It's more of a healthy eating plan. haha I decided that because I'm auditioning for the university level (pre-professional) at my ballet academy this year, I should start working harder than ever to make it in. So right after Christmas I started going to my old studio more often and for longer periods of time. I also starting working out more (especially to build core strength for balances and turns). But the thing I'm most proud of is my new "healthy eating plan". On the 28th of December I decided I was going to go without any sweets or junk food for as long as possible. Today is my 13th day of no sweets or junk food!! I'm quite proud of my small (but very important) accomplishment. I think because I live in Europe it's especially difficult for me to resist the temptation of all foods delicious, but not so good for me. Several times in the past couple of weeks my family has gone to France. And everyone knows what amazing desserts there are in France! But, much to my family's surprise, I resisted all temptations. I don't plan on stopping my "healthy eating plan" anytime soon. In addition to not eating any junk food, I've also started eating smaller portions. I already eat very small portions to begin with, but I think for my size I could eat even less and still have enough nourishment to keep me going throughout the day. I will try to keep you guys posted on how my "healthy eating plan" is going.

   Oh, and here are a few recent(ish) pictures of me.

These first couple pictures are from my family's visit to Mettloch, Germany.

This photo was taken at a German castle about 45 minutes away from my house.

Have a lovely day!
