Blog #1 Intro: ROAR Truth
An Introverted, Strong 39 year old Women in a Millenial Instagram World
Hey there, Buffi here and this is my ROARsome blog. I am slightly unsure about entering the world of blogging as yet another “fitness blogger” in a way overly saturated market. From all the know-it-alls to those that think-they-do-but-don’t, it begs me to as the question (in a Carrie-esque voice, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about then you are too young to be reading this): is there really space for me? (Don’t answer that)
For my first blog, I am simply going to introduce myself and let you know a little about this blog, which of course is going to mainly be about fitness, food, health & beauty, a little bit of travel and all the same other shit everyone writes about, right!? But with a little extra ROAR.
So who am I? I am a passionate, loud, but secretly kind and gentle Emu (my spirit animal, which goes beyond the physical similarities of our backwards bent legs); a determined introvert (arg… I just died a little inside using that word… so overused). Is it just me, but isn’t everyone an “introvert” these days? I hear this word being used all the time, people passionately declaring they are introverts at the top of their lungs. Doesn’t seem very introverted to me.
And have you heard, all extroverts are in fact actually introverts. Therefore, if introverts are introverts and extroverts are also introverts, aren’t we all introverts? Yeah, I’m confused too. If we are all introverts, doesn’t that just mean that being introvert is normal? So let me start that again.
I am a passionate, loud and determined normal person, with all the same fucking insecurities like everyone else. I am a nearly-40-year-old woman in this crazy Instagram body-obsessed world, and if anything I would like to be part of the Insta-backlash, and agree with Trump on this one, its all “fake news.”
I would love more than anything to share some insights on health and fitness, yoga and meditation, and some shit I find funny too. I’m old enough to be life-coaching now too right? Without even having taken an online course in it, I’ve lived, I’m living it 39.5 years: I’ve passed! On a serious note, there are some “health issues” I would personally like to address. Coming from someone who has ridden the wave of anorexia, food-obsession, body-dysmorphia, drinking and drug abuse, exercise obsession, maybe I can help someone who is going through the same thing.
Heads up, I am now 3 weeks into my month vegan road test, more in another blog about this. I am really a massive Fegan (fake vegan, a word I created while on Project Runway): I cook vegan at home, (occasionally with my homemade chicken broth, yeah from a chicken, I love a Meaty-Monday to balance out the 6 days no meat, I think vegan food is great, but damn so is a real cheesecake. No one makes better cashew milk than me, and cashew milk F&$@s almond milk right outta the park! My vegan balls are healthy on-the-go snacks. And I do my best to be kind to animals and eat less of them, but the body knows what the body wants. Isn’t it better to be a little bit more vegan than not at all?
That’s all for today. But a little heads up on my new favourite Secret Spot for all things vegan from “fish” burgers to the best “snickers in town, head over to their cute location in Berawa.
BIG ROARSOME LOVE,
