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…

A much needed Friday.

I have had a full day of studying today, it was much needed as I am currently dwelling in the field of childhood studies (as a complementary module for my psychological degree) and it is quite different to what I am used to. In other words, after three years of straight up psychology it is…

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….

If it tastes too good to be true then it probably is!

So I have been watching my food the past week as I have had a bit too much ‘fun’ as of late. Not in a crazy manner, but we have had friends over and naturally there have been a few dinners out and about. It does make it a tad more difficult to ‘control’ what…

Sunday Summary (Y17#40)

This week has been all about bouncing back from last weeks illness. It’s been lovely to finally get back into the groove of lifting weights and spending time on the various cardio machines. I have got this idea into my head that I want to do a 4 hours long session on the cross-trainer at some point….

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…

Resting day.

Three days of training are now done for this week and the first resting day is finally here before I take on the two last training sessions. I have just finished eating my oatmeal and I am currently trying to convince myself to face the downpour outdoors and head off to town. I am not…

Cauliflower favourite.

During the summer I have become obsessed with this simple and quick dish. It is perfect as a an easy post-training lunch or dinner as it is quite filling but yet light thus successfully dodging a ‘bloated’ feeling. In all honesty, I am all about convenient food and one requirement is that it has to be easy….

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…

My week in oatmeal.

I have changed my eating habits quite a bit the last three months. Instead of skipping breakfast in favour of ‘fasting’ and only eating lunch and tea (dinner) I have now made a point out of eating breakfast every morning. This of course goes hand in hand with my new training regime which actually requires…
