You decide.

  It is snowing, big perfectly white snowflakes outside my windows. I love winter, I adore snow – this is my season, and life could not feel any better right now. My parents in law left Germany today to return back home to England. Thus my focus is switching back to former training and food…

Refreshing warm lemon water and psychology thoughts.

I have spent the morning reading and writing down notes on various ideas for the next essay. It may sound odd to some, but I truly love the process of learning. I enjoy processing the information and allowing myself plenty of time to digest all new theories and concepts. When I used to study ethnology…

A splash of colour!

I found these colourful beauties in the veg shop earlier today and simply couldn’t resist! As my parents in law are visiting and we all are vegetarians it is nice to be able to serve something that is a bit different and a splash of colour is always welcome. I love that my parents in…

Study update and Lydia Elise Millen!

Life has been busy lately! Last weekend was spent celebrating a friend (and colleague to my fiancé)  who turned 30 and the past Monday was my birthday so naturally a few celebrations happened then too. On top of it all I have battled my first essay for this study year and I feel rather content…

Monday update

I am beginning to feel lazy now, no gym today either as I had to take our cat to the veterinary for a check up as the cold and cough has returned yet again. It is the less fabulous side affiliated with having furry ones that you love and have had the privilege to have…

Sunday Summary (Y17#45)

Not too much to report this week, the weight loss have been a bit slower but thats okay my body tend to have a few slow phases and then it drops a bigger number all of a sudden. I don’t worry about these things as long as I know that my training routine has been…

No rest for the wicked!

Finally Friday and after my resting day / study day yesterday it’ll be lovely to stretch out properly at the gym and then lift some weights. Most part of yesterday was spent battling my essay, its coming together nicely now even though I have yet to start writing. But the writing part is usually what…

All systems go, the results of determination!

Early morning and I am heading off to the gym for a weight session before I have to hurry back home to wait for the delivery of a package. I love that going to the gym is second nature to me and that I rarely lack motivation to get it done. As a matter of…

Quick lunch and then study.

Just back from the gym, fed the cat and I am now about to tuck into this lovely lunch! A simple salad with some gorgeous avocado to top it all off, yum! I have a busy schedule for the rest of the afternoon as I have to work on my essay which is due on…

Low-carb diets, why all the criticism?

Yesterday I was supposed to be working on my essay, but ended up reading various blog posts about nutrition, weight loss and different diets. Needless to say, I was a naughty student. Ever since I joined some kind of low carb diet (high protein and low fat) I have been amazed by the many negative…

Let’s get this week started – off to the gym!

Seeing that it is mere 3 degrees outside today I am one happy girl knowing that I have a newly purchased thick and long coat waiting for me to jump into when I head off to the gym. I don’t live too far from my training centre, but it does require a bit of a…

Sunday Summary (Y17#44)

Sunday is finally here and I was supposed to go to the gym for a cardio session today but it is raining cats and dogs outside and I actually decided to stay home. Rather naughty I know, but I have had a few nights where I have slept badly so I figured a full resting…
