HAVE QUESTIONS ABOUT ME?

All About My Journey

I was an overweight woman with 20 kilos more than I should be.
I started my journey with a non-surgical gastric baloon procedure.

I follow my diet properly and I exercised mildly.
After 4 months I will be running my half marathon.

HOW DO I DO?

WITH SWEAT AND TEARS.

I get up every morning at 06.30, which gives me sometime to spend by myself before the whole world starts calling, texting and emaling me.

I enjoy my morning coffee by watching mostly unfortunate news around the globe. I sometimes meditate before starting a hectic day to decharge my spiritual battery.

Breakfast is a MUST for my day to start. It gives me a great energy to start with.

I usually have unnccesarily long meetings in the day time. I have been trying to have my lunch properly but sometimes it doesn’t work. So I end up with late lunch early dinner type of a meal.

I prefer to have dinner with family and friends to catch up with them and share some quality of time together to discuss our daily urban lives and issues.

I am mostly in bed before 12.00 to get a quality of sleep until next morning biological wake up call at 06.30 sharp.

I truly believe discipline is the core value for all phases of life, both personal and Professional levels.

So I sleep and eat healthy in order to succeed in all marathons I run in the racetracks and offices I work in.

Daily exercises such as jogging, yoga or pilates are a certain part of my daily routine. I either exercise in the morning or in the evening. Timing is mostly depending on my personal trainer’s daily Schedule.

I do road-running in Caddebostan and Bebek racetracks. We get together once a week with Adidas Runners Club members for track attacks with 10×400 mt runs with short jogging breaks.

Forest run is also great for getting in shape for ultra trails and marathons I am dreaming to realize.

Shortly daily exercises, healthy eating and living in a disciplined manner are very crucial if you dream of running a real marathon.

I give an utmost attention to my daily nutrition, with the help of my dietician. She measures me every two weeks with the Inbody machine and modify my diet accordingly.

I lost 20 kilos within 6 months with my dietician’s great support. I never try anything different than written by her.

I try to eat raw food when I have no family and friends around.  I love adding kinoa, chia seeds, ginger and turmeric to all my meals where appropriate. I add cinnamon to my coffee or yoghurt at least once a day.

Instead of having chips, cookies or chocolate I receive sugar from fruits I have as a snack meal during the day.

Rosemary is my most favorite herb of all times. I cured my migrane attacks with rosemary tea. I use it while cooking or preparing my salad. I sometimes use it as a tea, especially when I have busy working days with loads of tensions.

I drink organic linden tea, green tea or herbal tea during the day.

Consumption of 2lt of water is also very helpful for my physical well being.

Life is a marathon and running is a true self-discovery.

Dreams To Catch

My dreams are to run for three marathons and one ultra trail in 2017. I am so passionate about all these hard to catch dreams.

Running in the stadium is like touching the sky as I close my eyes.

Each day I run, I rediscover my liberty.
