This week’s Sport Shero
Hi there. My name is Carolina and I get to be the Hunkemöller Sport Shero this week – YES! I am a fanatical foodie with a massive passion for fitness. Alongside a full-time job as Project Manager at Hewlett-Packard, I am the blogger behind www.foodie-ness.com. Foodie-ness is a real foodie-meets-fit girl blog with tons of inspiration, motivation and support around nutrition, fitness and a healthy lifestyle!
I am 25 years old and for the past three years have been living the happy life of a real health freak. Before I turned things around, I had reached a weight of 67 kg (I am 1.71 m tall) and I was leading an unhealthy lifestyle. A good three years ago, I split up with my boyfriend and together with my (also single) housemate we decided to give ourselves a beauty boost, starting with a personal trainer! It was time for a huge change and I was totally ready to become the most beautiful ‘me’ I could be and work really hard to achieve that. And before I knew it, I had found a new love!
Fit and healthy living became my best addiction! With plenty of ups and downs along the way, I am now 13 kg lighter, with lots more muscle mass and a lower fat percentage. Much more importantly, I am now much happier and I shine! My own ‘journey’ prompted me to start the Foodie-ness blog. If I can do it, anyone can, and I hope that sharing my vision and experiences can help you get started or do more.
Foodie-ness is aimed at the healthy girl next door! I think it is important to offer a pathway to health and vitality that is achievable for any woman – any woman who does not aspire to be a fitness athlete but is looking for a fit and healthy body, any woman who doesn’t have time to go to the gym six days a week and weigh her food but is looking for a healthy summer-proof body and a responsible and tasty eating schedule. To put it another way, any woman who is not looking for a lifestyle that makes you want to take a break as soon as possible, but a healthy lifestyle you can stick to with enjoyment and a smile!
Together we are stronger, so take my hand and let’s get started! Every day on Foodie-ness you will find a new recipe, a killer workout, healthy lifestyle motivation and useful tips & tricks to make your road to health effective and fun.
