About Me

Fit and Healthy After 40My name is Tamara and I currently live in Banja Luka – Bosnia and Herzegovina.

I have decided to start this Blog/Vlog to commit myself to stay fit and healthy.

I am 42 years old and have been pretty much into sport and fitness all my life.

After a death in my family I have been under a lot of stress and sadness and got very sick when I was 36 years old. I ended up in a hospital in Belgrade for 14 days. Luckily, I have recovered very quickly, but fear of getting sick again has made me start this Blog and my Youtube Channel.

Due to my misfortune at 36 I am not allowed to exercise rigorously, such as lift very heavy weights, do extreme HIIT training or extreme yoga poses, but I can do normal, moderate, everyday fitness with little challenges. I enjoy working out nearly everyday for 20-30 minutes, but I also like long walks and long and slow cardio sessions on my indoor bike and strider.

I make my own fitness rules and exercise according to them. My favourite style of exercising is using my own body weight, kickboxing, dumbbells and light kettle bells. I enjoy doing challenges (not extreme), sticking to them and finishing them.

Challenges are very good to build physical endurance and mental strength.

I am inviting you to join me on my journey, where I will share my fitness routine, food I eat, fitness challenges, recipes and many more things.

I would like to develop a health and fitness community for women over 40, but everyone else is more then welcome to join me.

Let’s do this together and become the best version of US after 40.

Don’t be afraid to make your own rules when it comes to your training. You don’t have to go to the gym. You don’t have to workout for an hour a day. You don’t even have to use any workout equipment. The choice is yours so don’t restrict yourself. – Zuzka Light
