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…

Wednesday and a favourite breakfast!

This morning was somewhat magical, woke up fully rested and I love how the sunlight bounce against the white snow making it even brighter! Since I am a light fanatic, that is one of the best attributes of winter in my opinion. Anyway, started my morning with a favourite breakfast containing a lovely avocado (big health booster…

Sighing just a little bit, smiling just a little bit.

Weeks, months pass by in a flash, or so it seems anyway. I have had yet another break from writing here, not because I do not train or cook or maintain whatever needs to be maintained outside of here. My reason for not being here, is mainly due to the battle I am currently fighting…

Autumn is here and I am…well, tired.

We returned back home from our engagement trip to Greece the other week and since then I have truly struggled to get myself back into my former training routine. Not due to a holiday blues or anything along those lines, instead I think it has to do with autumn all of a sudden being here and all…

Sunday Confession | To push yourself or not.

This has been one crazy week, training wise I have been fine – better than fine actually as I had my best run to date on Thursday. Legs were in perfect symbiosis with the heart and lungs and I felt as if I could have gone on forever, and I almost did. Until I remembered that I…

Monday, and I love it.

I love Mondays, and the feeling of a whole blank new week ahead of me that I can shape however I please. Of course this is the privilege of someone who currently does not work, and yet have some time off until the ‘real’ student year begins. Monday equals a sweaty gym session for me which I love,…

Breakfast and Beetroot Juice.

Sunday, and I started my morning with a lovely breakfast and some beetroot juice. Must say that I had a rather lazy morning actually, much deserved after yesterdays kickboxing and static strength exercises. I love that kind of exhaustion that happens after a tough workout. I don’t think I ever feel so alive as I do…

If you cannot eat the rainbow, at least eat your veggies.

Simply cannot get enough of this dish at the moment. So ridiculously simple, so tremendously good. You have seen it all before, cherry tomatoes, yellow pepper, leek, courgette, aubergine, sun-dried tomatoes and once finished topped with some low-fat feta cheese. Heavenly good. I have spent a good amount of time at the gym today, focusing…

Weekend plans.

Summer is here and I cannot help myself but spend most of the days outdoors. It is far too beautiful to stay indoors in front of a computer. Don’t really want to focus on anything else but this fabulous season and the gorgeous weather! To recap a bit though, I received positive news from my…

Monday, let’s go!

Monday is here, I really love the beginning of the week perhaps because all my stats start ‘anew’ (garmin, fitnesspal, gym routines etc) and I feel like I have all the power in the world to make it the  best possible week ever. However, this very week may require a few changes when it comes to my…
