Good Friday asks for some good weekend recipe, right? This time want to share with you, my latest, sweet experiment – apple pancakes! Perfect as a sweet treat or as a power breakfast to substitute those morning oats!

I must say this Spring has been one, crazy rollercoaster: travels, impressions, new people, crazy feelings, long days and even longer working hours, dedication to get in shape ( because, let’s be honest-round is not the best shape, hehe), neglected friends and new, life changing plans for the summer.. But hang in there, will keep you posted on that part too! But for now, let’s get back to my latest fit breakfast experiment – apple pancakes!

Incredibly easy, fit and healthy recipe that even a newbie will master and impress a foodie!  Read More

Jump! Jump for my love! as Pointer sisters sings! Or jump because it’s good for you! Simple and yet so efficient! 

Did you know that just 10 minutes of jumping rope can provide the same cardio benefits as 30 minutes of running or two sets of tennis? it also builds up the functional strength that supports your everyday tasks ( like carrying heavy bags).

I have already written about including Jumping rope in your training routine but this time how to make it right and how to build up stamina to jump more ( just like Rocky). Read More

Last week Adidas Runners Milan organized another great event – this time just for ladies presenting the new UltraBOOST X runners shoes designer for ladies! And what’s the best way to experience the shoe? Of course to go for a run! And so we did.

Turned out that was one of the lucky ones that had a chance to bring these babies for a run! And must say it was great! So comfy! was slightly looking sceptical to them but after trying on I really can say that you can feel the difference on the feet when running – fits perfectly hugging your ankle therefore giving a great support. At least my impression. 

But apart trying on a new shoe had a great Milan evening run and a little bit of working out with Adidas Runners girls.

Here is how it went.

We all have some problematic zones we would like to improve in our bodies more than others. One of them are armpits and overall upper body which looks exceptionally bad, if not toned, in a strapless dress or naked back dress or actually any other tight garment for that matter. Therefore it’s important to include exercises in your workout routine also dedicated to your problematic areas like armpits. Afterall summer is coming and as we all know – 

sumemr bodies are made in the winter

SUMMER BODIES ARE MADE IN THE WINTER

Of course we want to rock those strapless dresses and overall feel good about our arms so let’s tone them! Read More

Do not go more than 3 days without working out.

When on road – I always try to customize my trainings in order to adapt to stick to my training plan no matter how hard it gets, I just always try to find a time to squeeze in a workout session or two to stick to my fitness goal. While in Japan last week I still managed to squeeze in a leg day, HIIT and killer abs workout sessions. Always sticking to the golden rule when starting any workout program:

n

Indeed when you skip one-two training days it’s most probably you will skip some more and will sabotage all your hard work of previous weeks! (Trust me – I know! So frustrating!)so just stick to the gold rule no matter how hard it gets. Of course there are exceptions, like sickness or factors you cannot influence, but traveling, YES, even for work, shouldn’t be one of them. And in order not to feel bad about not working out at all – just squeeze in some short training programs – like a compact workout for abs and core session. 

Abs are relatively easy to train Read More

It’s a proven fact that people who live in a big cities has more stress, anxiety level is higher and they rest less than the ones living in smaller cities and countryside. 

Taking me for example, been way more stressed than I have ever been last 12 months than i believe in whole life. Of course with the age (now I can say that officially) comes also more responsibilities, more duties and expectations are higher. From outside world as well as my own. I want constantly improve, I push myself more and rest less. Not only for work but also in personal achievements and even fitness, and not oftenly putting the mental health and mind on peace. which cause for accumulated stress levels which outbursts into a sickness.

I believe that I am not the only one, therefore sharing this message with all of you: 

It’s OK to give you an extra rest day

I have already shared couple of times my fitness power bars recipe with you guys but here is a slightly modified and updated version of the old muesli/ granola bars recipe. They say – third is a charm, right?

Made it to treat the family, friends and colleagues as made it way too many. But as a finger-lickin good ones – they were gone in a heartbeat! so tested, proven and approved even by picky eaters! (That’s why excuse the lack of the pictures – couldn’t fight off all the eaters!)

The good side making homemade power bars is to have them by your reach whenever sugar cravings crash. Easy to pack them away for your office snack or enjoy it post workout to renew that energy reserves after a hard training, or simply have a healthy kick-start of the day, whenever you choose – it will make you satisfied!  Read More

For many of us work week starts on Monday and the same for a workout, a new workout program, a new diet, etc. Everything in the end starts on Mondays. Which is cool for many people and used by 99% I know, but getting older (5 days to go-O.M.G.) I have realized that I don’t want my workout week to start on Monday. It just doesn’t work for me.

Why I don’t want to start on Monday anymore? Because it’s too much to handle and sometimes too long to wait that meanwhile you just find some excuses to be lazy, eat bad or postpone starting all that good fitness and training objectives that really could make a difference, so when monday arrives you already start with a guilt of missed/not done exercises, skipped diet/clean eating and being overall lazy – to sum up – you start with minuses and probably you are also less motivated.

When you are tired of tacos and fajitas and roasted chicken in Playa del Carmen, or you have stopped partying and wish to have some healthy meal and get back to your clean and healthy eating habits., it’s time to visit Bio-Natural vegan restaurant and shop. 

This place i first noticed while exploring Playa and instantly knew that this will be definitely my next favorite place in Playa. And I was completely right!

Away from the buzz behind the Shopping Mall on 5th avenue, but still in the heart of the city is located the restaurant we visited for a lunch and some grocer shopping for home cooking. (As we prefer always cook ourselves 70% of time when we travel).

The spot we choose for our lunch was facing the street just because we wanted to see the world passing by and also hide away from the bad weather and rain clouds that were coming and going all day.

Playa del Carmen Christmas getaway was like a dream come true! Putting bikini on during winter period and hit the beach, dance in the sand, swim with turtles and sleep under palm trees! This was probably one of the most longed trip I have ever had in my life – just to get away – far, far away where the sand is white, ocean is blue and the life is colorful just like the murals, city and people in Mexico.

Usually in adventures in new countries I plan many things I wish to try, taste and see, but this was slightly different trip – this trip was to seek a peace, relaxation and a proper getaway to recharge batteries, reflect and reconnect with the life, priorities and simply enjoy life. Read More
