Hello, and welcome to India Hattersley.
I’m 24, born and bred in Yorkshire and now living the big city life down in London. India Hattersley started back in 2017 after graduating from university, when I wanted to document my month travelling around the USA before embarking on ‘real life’…
It’s safe to say that my blog and I have evolved over the last few years as I’ve explored travel, food, general ‘lifestyle’ and now venturing into fitness. It’s been a creative space for me to share my passions with my friends, family and followers.
Working full-time has meant that I’ve had to truly live and breathe a ‘balanced’ lifestyle to ensure that I’m getting everything I want out of my waking hours. It’s definitely taken a while, but my life is now on the track that I have been searching for and I couldn’t be happier.
In 2019 I decided to go vegetarian, having experimented with ‘Veganuary’ and the likes – it’s one of the best life choices I’ve made both for my mental and physical wellbeing. I also took up kickboxing (not the proper ‘get-punched-in-the-face’ type, but circuits/fitness) and I’ve never felt fitter. I really feel like I’ve found my groove! I’m not, for one second pretending to be a qualified nutritionist or personal trainer – simply an individual with a passion and drive for leading a positive, balanced and REAL lifestyle!
I (along with many of you) spend far too much time on Instagram, watching the perfect lives of others and have now accepted that I am never going to have abs of steel or be able to workout twice a day with a personal trainer – I don’t have the time or money, but in reality I also just really like cake!
Through a balanced regime of eating and working out, I’ve seen my life completely change for the better – I’ve grown in confidence, quashed negativity and seeking new challenges. I want the same for everyone else, and hope that my blog can help with a bit on inspiration along the way!
