My name is Yamila and I’m an active, food loving, sports minded, girl who is now living in Madrid, Spain.
I’ve always battled with emotional eating. When I’m sad, mad or even happy, I will turn to food as a means to cope or celebrate my emotions. I’m working on my relationship with food to make it less of an emotional connection.
How I Got Started: I started Just Eat Lift Sleep Repeat to document my journey (If you’re interested in starting a blog yourself, I’d HIGHLY suggest doing so). Starting a personal blog was one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life to keep myself accountable on my health. Anyway, if you’re on the fence of starting your own blog. DO IT!!! A year from now, you’ll wish you started today. Never mind, scratch that, you’ll wish you started yesterday. Moral of the story…best decision I’ve made thus far.
