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…

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…

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…

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…

New in : Adidas, training performance hoodie!

November is here, winter is coming and along with that a very cold gym. I have been on the look out for a hoodie which is light enough to fit into my small Alexander Wang  gym-bag which I carry with me into the gym during training sessions. I like to have my asthma medication at…

Rise and shine lovelies!

Saturday morning and it’s time for a cardio session. Since I prefer to have an (active) resting day on Thursdays it has left me with a cardio session on Saturdays to keep my five days of training per week. Luckily I mostly enjoy getting up early in the morning, but today I feel pretty rough….

A day off!

Raw juice in the pic above: 3 small pears, 1 red apple, 150 gram blueberries and some cinnamon sprinkled on top! It is a public holiday in Germany today celebrating the reunification of Germany, as such everything is closed so instead of heading to the gym I have had a full day of studying. Admittedly, this resting…

To listen to my body.

I caught a virus last weekend and have been trying to take it easy and relax allowing my immune system a fair chance to deal with the situation. I have tried my best to rest up properly even though all I want to do is be active. It is the toughest lesson to learn when…

Tuesday is here and I am in love with the gym.

Tuesday already, I have had a grand start to the week though. Yesterdays gym session went swimmingly and I managed to add weights to some of my sets. It is a huge win when that can happen and I still can sustain a controlled movement and work the correct muscle group(s). I love to lift…

My training buddy.

Last Christmas I was gifted a fitbit from my brother in law and his girlfriend and it has been a true companion ever since. At first I didn’t think I was going to take to it at all as I have always been true to Garmin and fully appreciate the information it provides me with…
