Travel Journal 1: Planning to Plan

As i have previously posted i have made the decision to go travelling. I am planning to hopefully go away in about a years time. I will document my progress from planning to travelling on this blog, alongside my other blogs.

At this very moment in time i have decided to travel but i am still trying to figure out where to go. I like the idea of travelling to america, australia and asia.

In america i would like to see a few of the sites and maybe go up into canada and see a couple of sites, perhaps spending 2-3 weeks travelling through america. In australia i am considering maybe going over to new zealand for a few days whilst i am there and maybe travel through the country for about three weeks before moving on to the next destination. I am having the hardest decision when it comes to travelling through asia, i am drawn more towards thailand, tokyo, etc, places with more culture tosurround myself with.

This journey is alot about culture and history and learning more about the societies i am visiting and travelling through.

I have also been looking at possible volunteering opportunities around the world and i am thinking of including some volunteering into my travels. i am especially drawn towards the volunteering opportunities about animals.

I am still trying to figure out where i am planning to go, and begin figuring out my budget for the whole plan. i have started to look at some costings but until i have a firmer idea of what it is i want to do i can’t get a finalised estimated budget.I am so excited about going travelling. this is something i have wanted to do for a long time and i now feel i am in a better position to go ahead with this plan. i will continue to update you as i make more plans.

Until next time…..

Starting a new healthier lifestyle!

Today i made the decision to change my lifestyle and make it healthier and more beneficial for myself. I have made this decision for several reasons, firstly so that i have more energy, secondly to ultimately lose the weight that i can’t seem to shift and fell better about myself, and lastly it is the first step in my preperations for me to go travelling. I am not planning to go travelling for about a year which gives me plenty of time to be in better shape for my trip.

I am going to do regular posts about how i am getting on with the changes, documenting improvements i have noticed or any difficulties i have had. i am going to share all the facts about what i am doing.

You are probably wondering how i plan to do this, well with the help of a friend (she is a wellness coach i know), i am starting on a plan with a company called Herbalife. I feel more confident using this then i have about other diets and health plans i have tried as i am going to have support every step of the way. She is helping to create a tailored plan for me that will help me get the most out of herbalife and help me achieve my goals.

Herbalife nutrition plans and products

At the moment i am waiting for my first assortment of products to arrive that are tailored for health, wellbeing, and weight loss in the most beneficial way. However before these arrive i am already starting on the tips she gave me on everything else i can do to improve myself. The first thing i have begun doing is consuming more water and staying more hydrated. She suggested i try and consume 2 litres of water a day, which seems like a lot for someone that doesn’t drink a lot of water. well with my first day done i consumed 1.5 litres of watre which is a great start. i also had a warm salad for dinner packed full of lovely yummy veggies. Plus i threw in a ten minute cardio session to see what my level of fitness was actually at, safe to say its not that high at the moment but that will soon change.

I am feeling really positive about this change, and can’t wait to share my progress with you. As i go along i will also share progress of my transformation via photographs.

Until next time……
