My Dad’s 50th birthday celebration! A picture of the whole family!

Posted on Jul 27, 2014 with 2 notesShare

Hello Friends!

It has been such an amazing yet tiring weekend.

  • Friday I spent all day in the library trying to catch up on my reading for my thesis but I didn’t finish. So Saturday morning I got up at 3am in the morning to read another 60 pages. 
  • It feels like I’m in summer school and I can’t really enjoy myself because I am reading and researching every day. I hope this all pays off in 9 months.
  • This weekend, we have been celebrating my Dad’s 50th birthday. I wasn’t able to get a solo picture with the birthday man because everyone was vying for his attention.
  • Saturday night dinner was at Oberuit in Lausanne with the family and my auntie and uncle who flew over from England. We had 10 small hot and cold dishes of Lebanese foods and two glasses of red wine and a lot of water to wash down that meal.
  • Sunday morning began with a morning worship at church then the afternoon was spent at Le Deck at Chexbres. The restaurant overlooked the vineyards and the lake. The first six pictures are from that restaurant. 
  • My food was amazing! I had spring vegetable risotto as a starter, pan fried sea bass with potatoes and leeks as a main and Caribbean chocolate soufflé with guava ice cream.
  • Seriously my food baby is serious right now. Tomorrow’s workout is going to be tough.

Bonjour tous!

Aujourd’hui, Je suis en Evians-les-bains!

A fun adventure in France for the day! ✌ I had a blast with both my grandmas, my brother and my sister!

I’m so dead on my feet right now. I’m just going to eat and pass out.

“You will be stupid. You will worry your parents. You will question your own choices, your relationships, your jobs, your friends, where you live, what you studied in college, that you went to college at all… If that happens, you’re doing it right.”

10 years ago exactly I set out on a journey, a journey of self-discovery and adventure. After graduating from university there was opportunity to stay in Canada and start my career but that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I knew I needed to leave the comfort of living in my city and with my parents and move somewhere unknown to me. I chose to move to South Korea, a country I knew very little about.  Since elementary school I have always believed that experiences (both positive and negative) are what help form a person’s psychological development and maturity. I was determined to experience a new culture, become immersed and adapt to my new life. My goals were to gain personal growth, knowledge, experience, and to regain my health back.  Let’s rewind to 2004: During this year I allowed the stress of school and other circumstances in life to discontinue any workout regimen I had and to stop practicing all nutritional habits I had obtained over the years from reading Health & Fitness magazines and books and I began emotional eating to cope. Within 6 months I went from a size 8 to a size 11/12 (just to give you perspective). All in all I gained nearly 40 LBS. As you can imagine, this was a low point in my life. There were moments when I gave up but there were also moments when a small part of me believed that ‘this can’t last forever’. I bet on that small ray of hope and I promised myself that one of my goals by moving away was getting my health and fitness under control. Over that year I managed to gain healthier habits and slowly lost the weight. I didn’t rush things as I was trying to figure out what worked for me and my lifestyle. I didn’t want to just ‘lost the weight’ quickly because I had tried MANY diets in the past and every time I would go back to my old habits I would regain the weight. This seems like a no-brainer now but back then I needed to experience it myself for it to stick. The point is, you can make a lifestyle change but only you can do this. 💪💪💪 #transformationtuesday

So much love for this woman.

Theresa is proof that if you believe in yourself, you can do anything!

“You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.”
