You don’t have to be a champion to become a champion! this was the a motivational picture I got after finishing my N+TC workout yesterday morning before heading to my first business meeting her in Stockholm. It’s been a while since I could work out due to my dental intervention and frequent traveling lately, so this kind of motivational picture, popping up on my screen after a good workout, was exactly what I needed to start my day good and encourage to get back on track (and stay on it – as I will be travelling a lot upcoming months as well) with my workouts and training routines. 

However, travels are not excuse to not work out. Yes, it is more challenging, as you have to make an extra effort to find strength and motivation to work out after/before a long day of traveling and meetings but once you have squeezed in a workout in your schedule, even a short one, it is definitely worth it. I am completely honest when I say that I have never ever regretted waking up 1 h earlier before to have a 20, 30 or 45 min workout session before starting my day. It’s not because I wouldn’t love to sleep! No, no! But love for my body and workout benefits it’s grater than desire to sleep in, so I just get myself up and do a quick workout session that will energize me for the rest of the day. 

Usually I work out at my hotel room and having a HIIT or body weight circuit sessions as the hotel gyms are pretty useless anyway, if there are any, as it is pretty convenient and time saving. Also yesterday morning was the case and worked out using only body weight and my limited space in my hotel room.

Trust me, it is all that you actually need to keep active while on road as even a short training can be really effective to maintain the fitness level and stay fit on the road.  Read More

Me & My Beau

Every girl has her weak spots – some of them has bags, some shoes (we all love pretty pair of shoes, don’t we? ), some nail polishes and some other one beautiful dresses – for me it is something all of them but if I have to name my favorite one it is definitely workout gear and colorful outfits (including workout pants and leggings and shoes) and travel gear. When I travel I like everything to be organized and as light and compact as possible (so just in case I still can find some space in a bag for a last minute, must-have purchase).

Every time I head to Nordics or Baltics I check out their latest trends, sales isles and some healthy choices. and believe me or not – every time I find some really good value deal. (I like to consider myself as a smart buyer so I prefer hitting sales or go to some outlets or keep my eye out for some special promotions and to keep diversity I do that wherever I go -that’s why I have a wardrobe from all around the globe).

Outside is raining and you have no will to leave the house to hit the gym to go for  run still feel like burning some calories? Than we are in the same boat! I am currently for a business trip at Stockholm, outside is raining and still would like to do my cardio training but it is not possible as my hotel does not have a gym.. But what it does have is a space in my room and stairs – 5 floors of them therefore I will use them instead.

The best thing I have come up during my trips is a HIIT*  (High Intensity Interval Training) training on those cardio days. Not only because it saves time, space and needs no equipment but also because it burns more fat and faster than regular jogging.  Read More

At least 4 times I year I go for work to Stockholm and during my trips I have observed and learned some tricks and tips that must be obeyed once you are there! so why not share them with you?

Usually i do not have time for long strolls from one island to other ( however must say it is wonderful, especially in July), but I do have picked up some nice things from Swedes, like afternoon tea time – coffee brake – FIKA (pronounced fee-ka) usually it has been accompanied with a cinnamon sweet. my preferred is always cinnamon roll or bun. (It’s pretty easy to make and will post a recipe  ASAP). Cinnamon is my winter’s BFF. Sweds like to pop in a nice Cupcake and Bakeries to enjoy it properly. So did I.
