Although I originally hail from George in the Southern Cape, I currently reside in Durbanville with my husband and two adorable Staffie dogs. If I am not working, cycling or running you will find me either enjoying coffee at a local coffee shop or drinking whiskey in the comfort of my own home.
Ever since I can remember, I have had a difficult relationship with food. As with many young girls, I became conscience about my weight as a teenager, feeling unhappy with my physical appearance. Sadly, I soon found myself counting calories, skipping meals and throwing myself into vigorous exercise to keep the pounds off. Unsurprisingly, my fixation led to a career in nutritional sciences (Don’t worry, the irony does not escape me).
Luckily, with the unwavering support from family, friends and some serious introspection, I have been able to embrace body positivity and self-acceptance. While I still watch what I eat and regularly exercise, I learnt the hard way that being healthy and happy is all that matters. Ultimately, it is not only about loving oneself, but finding peace with your body.
