This week the featured blogger in my What I… blogger interview series is Sue from Fitness Chat
She is obsessed with fitness (hence the blog!) and really quite enjoys book reading, hiking, hair dressing, interior design, eating good food and watching documentaries and reality shows. She is also mom to two beautiful girls.
Read on to find out more about Sue…
I am a shy and outgoing person. I know people usually think I am unapproachable and seem stuck up because I know my shy personality gets in the way.
Yes, I know I am a fine cross between an introvert and an extrovert if there is ever such a thing. I know that I am special, I stand out in most cases and I have been told several times that there’s a ‘je ne sais quoi’ about me. I need to know what this ‘thing’ is.
I know fitness is life haha.
I love my two daughters to bits. I love Jesus and I love myself. I love life and then there are things and people that I have grown to love. I think sometimes I confuse what I like and with what I love and I will console myself here and say that everybody else does this. No?
Okay then, I love rain, I am one of the few people who is comforted by it – is there a word to describe us?
I love fitness (pretty sure this is obvious).
I love good food – just don’t ask me to cook.
I used to love my late mum. I used to love my late sister and only sibling. I still love them.
I am a keen reader. I read a lot of books but they have to be paperbacks because I am old school like that (I need to sniff paper if the book is a 5/5 – I can’t do that with electronic copies LOL). I try to read 1-3 books a month when time allows, which is getting quite rare these days. The kind of reads you will find me curled up on the couch with, are investigative and courtroom thrillers, and classics I missed out on when I was in high school. My favourite book has to be Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. The worst? No doubt the Alchemist by Paulo Coelho! I was once hooked on Jackie Collins’ books (rolls eyes) – I stole a copy from my mum when I was about 14 years old – you could say I learned a lot of shit from that.
I want so many things. My life has been one hell of a ride for so long and I want a lot of storms around me to settle. I want peace. I want to have what I want.
I want to one day be addressed as a fitness expert. I want to one day own a gym.
I want to overcome my fear of public speaking and this is quite odd because I did a lot of public speaking in high school.
I also want to travel to Japan and the UAE one day, there is something that intrigues me about these two cultures.
Let’s start with my face. I wear glasses but not so many people know this.
When it comes to clothing, I think I have more high heels than clothes. I own two pairs of really worn out flat shoes and I have no shame when I wear them because it’s just for convenience, not to look good ☺
I am comfortable these days in leggings and because I lift weights and squat, my quads have grown quite a bit, making it hard for me to find jeans that fit quite well. I don’t wear wedges. I also don’t I wear scarves because I feel chocked by them.
I need to buy a house!
I need to give the best of life to my kids and that stems from my need to be a better parent every day.
I need to go to Bora Bora for a 1 month holiday. Wait, is that a need or a want?!
