Hey hey hey everyone!
I am Yoggi! I am a regular Venezuelan girl living in Greece who, while being here, has discovered that health and fitness can be simple, fun and CHEAP!!
I am not a trainer or a nutritionist, i’m just a girl who was tired of being in the vicious cycle that is dieting and decided to try and find a better way, perhaps a more permanent and natural way to be in shape.
If there are any Venezuelans (or Latin Americans in general) reading this you know that fitness and health over there is a “no brainer”; there are plenty of affordable gyms, restaurants options with “diet foods” in their menus, as well as dietitians to help you loose weight. When I came to Greece, I realized that fitness was not as affordable or accessible as back home. I found gym memberships to be really expensive and restaurants to have few-to-none fat free/ healthy options to order from. Basically I realized that if I wanted to stay in shape (and loose the excess weight I was already carrying back then) I had to find an alternative and affordable way to do so. For the past 3 years I have been doing just that, and… it has worked VERY WELL for me, and now I want to share my way of doing this with you!
Coming to Greece and realizing that I wouldn’t be able to rely on a personal trainer for my workouts, afford a monthly membership to a gym, and much less to go nutritionist or dietitian to keep my weight under control and have the latests diets…was the best thing that ever happened to me! This experience pushed me to learn how to do these things by myself and in a way that was also affordable and easy.
I must say that I was never terribly overweight but I was never really happy with the way I looked either. I actually started my first diet in fourth grade of elementary school, when I was too big to fit into my communion dress! I have spent my entire life trying to reach my “dream weight/ my dream body” and since I started taking control of my own workouts and my nutrition, I can finally say that I am thinner, stronger and fitter now than I have ever been in my entire life! But this isn’t the exciting part, what is AMAZING to me is that I never thought I would be able to eat the foods I love and do the things I love to do and still be able to look the way I wanted.
I no longer diet or need a gym membership because I discovered a way to be fit, be healthy, be happy, and its all natural!! This is my way of Healthy, Happy Living…
