Me & My Beau, Workout

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.

On Motivational Monday it should be all about motivation and inspiration to get you going so let’s not make any exceptions and will share you my motivation on the week.

So the bad news is that after 6 months fighting to get rid of the results of my summer intoxication in Portugal ( which despite on unfortunate events did not ruin that wonderful road trip). turns out that I have a partly conclusion – I won a gastritis! (yeah, how you get that in your twenties, you will ask? Well intoxication and stress, my friend. Stress is the root of the evil. Telling you!). 

Needless to say that have been quite down because of this – uncertainty, pain, discomfort, medicine, gym&workout skipping due to that, which has lead to a weight gain and slight obsession of losing the weight, work traveling and mental exhaustion of all work overload. So let’s say this fall hasn’t been the most relaxing, BUT finally I am one step closer resolving the issues – first, I have diagnosis and second part of exam results will come in 2 weeks.  Honestly I am quite glad of this diagnoses because I finally know what it really is and I can start fixing it.

Next is getting back in shape Read More

I have briefly mentioned already in my past posts that August was my get-away from society month to recharge and reconnect with my family and friends and above all my love. Also August was a month when I got married. ( However I don’t want to claim that I am not Miss Athlètique anymore, it’s still me! and always will be despites of the status! Reply to my readers question.)

When you get married, and oh, boy! you are stressed out to manage EVERYTHING and everyone but the satisfaction of all that trouble are just out of the window when the day arrives and even now – when you look back to videos and photos of that day and you take only the happy moments and faces. And no detail is significant anymore but the fun, love and joy you are feeling.

So here, some exclusive preview of how it went. Read More

Road trip from Porto to Lisbona – 3 friends exploring Portugal

Between the madness of organizing wedding and business trips I finally have managed to get my hands on my camera and to get all my photos on computer from my last trips including Portugal adventure.

Despite it was just couple of weeks ago, seems that year has passed by as so many things has happened in between. However it is nice to see the pictures and get that lovely nostalgic feeling of the holiday fun with my girls. Already can’t wait to go for a next adventure with them.

We voted for a road trip to get that freedom and luxury to choose what time to wake up, where to stop and what to see on the way so we rented a car. Less we knew that renting car online trough supplier and actually picking it up and having an extra contract would cost us double for insurance, but we learned our lesson to never take insurance online, but directly Read More

Popping-in at Marina Hoermanseder’s show during Berlin Fashion week

So I went to Berlin to see Marina Hermanseder show as part of our new and exciting collaboration between Sanrio and Marina for co-branded Hello Kitty line. The weather was wonderful:sun was shining and the Swarovski  embroidered crystals was sparkling especial bright giving a magic touch to the models outfits.

The line was colorful and fun with nice touch of Marina’s signature belts, bows and butterflies. Wonderful Louboutin sandals and heels gave extra glamour and summer chic to the collection. Needless to say that would love to have them all in my closet too. Both-outfits and shoes.
Here is my favorite picture from the show – with happy and smiley Marina herself after the show.

Oh, hello sunny Monday! Another weekend over and another work week is ahead of us with new aims, goals and plans, like, for example, getting rid of the toxins! we all, of course, have heard about toxins (A  poisonous substance produced within living cells or organisms that can be small molecules, peptides, or proteins that are capable of causing disease on contact with or absorption by body tissues interacting with biological macromolecules. Ref. Wikipedia). In other words toxins can badly affect your immune system  which are taken by environment and mostly by the food we eat causing diseases, allergies, sickness and for sever cases even death. 

There is no really a good way to avoid taking toxins by environment or pollution or people around you, but there is definitely a way to avoid them coming to your plate.

Here are tips for food shopping and label reading to avoid food contamination:  Read More

Today is first day in 7 days I am able to sit up straight an actually sit to the computer and do something. Been sick as a monkey for last week and basically all I did was staying in bed.

Actually cannot really recall last time I had so high fever, muscle pain, headache and such a bad smokers cough, if ever had one so felt even worse as not used to be set still for such a long time especially when I have so many plans and things to do. However not everything always depends on us and guess some higher power wanted me just to slow down and give my body and mind a break for a week…and I just had to let it. No gym, no workout, no working, no nothing – just bed, medicine and relax.

So my best components to survive this crazy week was : Read More

I believe that the last years the pace of life has definitely picked up leaving less and less time for our friends, family and especially for ourselves. This hectic lifestyle, when you try to manage everything: stay on diet, lose weight, increase muscles, sleep, travel, meet friends, relax, read a book (gosh, don’t remember last time when started and actually finished the whole book less than in 6 months), build your career and invest in your future, etc. Everything is sooo much that you just cannot manage everything or just living on the run and have to say “no” to things just to manage to get through the day.

For me it has been especially hard last month as been traveling every week, working not human hours and have no time free for nothing and no one, not even myself to stick to my diet and workout program I started as my new year’s resolution. And men it is so frustrating as I supposed to be arrived at a point I could show off my progress, but no, instead I am lacking sleep, taking 7am flights every week and working till midnight + skipping gym. To sum up – no good progress so far that makes me completely frustrated and upset and sad, however this feeling are not going to change nor improve the current situation so just need to make a choice how I wish to proceed: feel sorry for myself and drop everything or just pick it up and keep going!?(..what it will be, giiiirl? ) Read More
