Our Caricature

I came here to share a little more about my life with you. Tomorrow Mark and I are having our 10th wedding anniversary. I hope to make a video talking about how we met with a few more questions I have been getting on my IG.

Mark, I want to tell you that it has been a wonderful journey to share my life with you. Even when I couldn’t speak English and all the funny situations we got through with that. We dream the same dream of  inclusion and a healthy lifestyle and it’s very special.

I am grateful for all the moments we spend together, all of them, even the “bad” ones make us a strong couple, the good ones made us more appreciative of life. I just want to tell you, that you make my heart dance and life is much better shared with you.  You are not only my best friend but the person I admire as a professional  with all  your work to promote adapted sport and as an human being. I am so proud to be your wife. I am the luckiest one in the world and so blessed because of it.

This video is on My Brazilian Youtube channel and I thought I would share with you one of the best moments of my life.

I need to say a special thanks to my cousin Moacyr for put this video together.

What I would say to finalise is: Believe in love, it will always find you.

Much love Sam

Review of Samsonite Bags for Wheelchair Users

I was so excited to receive my Samsonite cabin luggage and laptop bag back.  The cabin suitcase is personalized and came with my initials “SB” on it. It combines strength with lightness and is perfect for me when travelling only with cabin baggage.  In airports and shopping centres  I can easily attach the case handle over my backrest and pull it along. The quality is high with a number of great features including a retractable identification label. It has lockable zips and soft touch handles.

The laptop backpack is just what I have been looking for.  I wanted a stylish bag that allows me to safely carry my computer.  It is made to the very highest standards and has it’s of pockets for all the items that I carry with me on a daily basis. I chose black to match the backrest

5 Ways to Lose Weight

5 Ways to Lose Weight

Back Exercise at Gym

Some many assume that it’s difficult to keep your weight in check while in a wheelchair, but losing weight actually revolves heavily around your diet. Of course, staying active and exercising is a key component, which is why I always try to get to the gym each week, but nutrition is the main factor.

There’s a common saying that you can’t out-train a bad diet, and that’s why I focus on eating a healthy diet. Other than being dairy and meat-free, I try to keep everything as balanced as possible, because that’s what allows me to perform at my best. In fact, I don’t eat this way to lose weight, I eat this way as it benefits my body.

Ultimately, you should only attempt to lose weight if you truly want to. If you don’t, then be happy with yourself and love your body, because beauty comes in ALL shapes and sizes. These tips are just to give you some help for improving your diet if you wish…

Courgette Pasta

Pasta is loved by millions across the world, including myself, but excess carbohydrates are stored around the body as fat. So, to keep your carb intake low, then you can make some delicious vegetable pasta with courgettes. Slice it into strips, spiralise it in a pasta machine, and cook it. Then, just top it with your favourite sauce, and you’ll have a lovely meal.

Green Juices

It’s no secret that a lot of people hate vegetables. However, vegetables are a terrific source of nutrients, vitamins and minerals, which will allow you to maintain your good health. Therefore, why not try to consume all of the goodness from vegetables in liquid form instead? You can add vegetables, and accompany them with fruits and other things to improve the flavour.

Banana Ice Cream

Ice cream is one of those things that I love to snack on while watching a great movie or a binge-worthy TV series. Although, traditional ice cream is full of fat, and isn’t recommended for a healthy, balanced diet. But, there are ways to increase the nutritional value of ice cream, and a way that I love is to make my own banana ice cream.

Fruit for Dessert 

There’s no denying that having a dessert to finish off your meal is popular, but devouring a chocolate sponge or a sticky toffee pudding won’t do your weight any flavours. So, why not substitute those common, unhealthy desserts with a scrumptious bowl of fresh fruit? You’ll get the same sweet flavours, but without all of the fat!

Soups

One of the best ways to satisfy your appetite, and curb any tendencies to snack in between meals, is to enjoy a hot soup. When it comes to soup, its extremely quick and easy to make, and you can choose whichever ingredients you desire. For instance, you could have a basic tomato soup, or you could choose to fill it with tons of different vegetables.

Use these tips for your diet, and they’ll help keep your weight at a level you’re comfortable with. But, remember, you should always be happy and confident with your body no matter what!
