Getting healthier

Hallo Leute,
so i just decided that I wanted to a little bit more sport. I am not extremly uncomfortable with my body but I would like it to see it a bit more defined. So maybe I can find one or two other people who also would like to get healtier or stay healthy.
First of all I want to introduce you to my rules:

1. Sport - three times a week
I am doing sport on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. I have sport at school on Monday and I let that count. There we are currently doing badminton and later in the school year we will do gymnastics and volleyball. On Wednesdays and Saturdays I will either do a workout or go jogging. As it is pretty cold at the moment I am not going outside right now. For workouts I like to do the workout videos from Xhit daily which is a channel on Youtube.
I like sport and for me it is easier to do sport than to eat healthy.

2. Water
I usually drink lots of water so it is not that big of a deal but I decided that I wouldn't drink anything else anymore on a daily basis. This excludes milk though as I use it for my breakfast and I also like to drink milk after a workout.

3. No chocolate
This will be so hard for me. I want to eliminate all chocolate and most of other sweets aswell. I am an absolute addict and really have to motivate myself to not eat any chocolate or drink a hot chocolate or a candy bar or anything like this. I am trying to do this until my birthday in March so it is only a month but might extend it until easter (but I would eat chocolate on my birthday :D )

4. Cheat day
Once a week a cheat day. I think it will probably will be Saturday for a variety of reasons. I already did sport day so it feels like a little treat for me. I always use to watch a movie on Saturdays and I want to snack something then. But I might if I go somewhere, for example a birthday party or the cinema. However, even on a cheat day I won't eat chocolate.

5. No food from the cafeteria
The food in our cafeteria tastes pretty good for cafeteria food. But is also is really fat food so I will to avoid eating it and make some lunch at home. I can already see that this will fail because I will forget to make the food in the morning but I will try.

So those are my rules and I hope I will get a bit in shape. If you have any suggestions or feel the same way as I do I would to hear from you!

Tschüss :)

Movie Review - Belle

The movie Belle is from 2013 and I wanted to talk with you about it because I thought it was a great movie. It was based on this painting:
The movie is about Belle. Her mother was black but her father was a white man and he took her to his uncle (Lord Chief Justice) where she grew up together with her cousin (the other girl in the picture). When they grow older Belle often isn't allowed to have dinner with her family when guests are around because that wouldn' be allowed. 
The movie tells the story of this woman and her cousin. Both are looking for husbands so it also has a really big romantic and of course dramatic side to it but it also is about politics. Especially a case in front of her uncles court about a ship with black slaves who were drowned and it is suspected that this was done because there was an illness and the slaves were more worth dead than alive.
That is also why I love the movie: Because it has the romantic side but then there is also the side about politics and I think they managed to put them into balance. Though it is not totally historically correct and most of it is ficton it is a wonderful story based on this picture where a black woman and a white woman are painted on an equal level. I thought the camera setting were nice as well as the lightning (but nothing special - just done very decently).

So just watch the trailer or tell me what you think about the movie (if you have watched it)



Tschüss :)
