Workout

This fall I have been traveling a lot therefore I had to also adopt my workout to my lifestyle switching from 1/1,5 gym sessions to shorter but more intense trainings. So far my favorite time saver and overall body training, booty shaper and super fat-shredder is HIIT workout. It saves time and can be completed everywhere – even your hotel room in your undies (yep, not ashamed to admit that! saving space on those leggings and shoes in carry on bag).

 In my last trip (3days in Stockholm) I used my Seconds Timer app (which is so far the best timer ever for training and customized programs). Read More

Me & My Beau

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

First Nike event Milan – So Fast – check!

Happy Monday hot Milan! Ready to confront another work week? I am! Determined, charged and ready for new challenges and achievements – one step at a time!

If you were following me on Twitter and Instagram you already knew that went running a mile with Nike Training Club Milano to show how fast I am. and I must say, it went even better than I thought. Hadn’t been able to run more than a month not even talking about speed running, so was pretty nervous but all good that ends good and just jump right in and confront my fears just by Doing it without too much thinking! (too much thinking kills the courage, so I am not hesitating but just taking opportunities and accept challenges when they comes in front of me without much consideration if the feeling is right.)

It was such a great pleasure to meet and see so many smiley, active and positive people at one place and coming together to do something fit and just enjoy their Thursday evening sporty not by regular bar hopping and Milan apperetivos, even though there was a bar – a juice bar with a freshly squeezed smoothies to recharge our batteries after our mile along the Naviglio.

Workout

My long weekend getaway to Sicily (pictures will follow up on Sunday) is over and it is time to get back to my strict workout schedule. I know for some is hard to stick to workout routine and eating clean while on vacations and sometimes I completely agree it is OK to not be harsh on yourself during a getaway, especially a short one – like a long weekend and enjoy some traditional food and not stick to a hard core workout, because after all it’s all about balance. Hard work and some rest for body and mind.

Especially when you are travelling to a new places you know that you are going to walk a lot to explore the place as much as possible and this is a wonderful workout that’s actually does not feel like one because you are getting snappy with pictures, stop for a rest and walk again so in the end of the day you even had walked like up to 20-30 km. Happened to me first time In Paris that I walked 30 km and basically was dead by the end of the day), that’s why I know.  If you want to check out how much you make it in a day, while sightseeing, get yourself a Pedometer app for Iphone or Endomondo for your mobile device to count your steps and burned calories. I use both (depends which has still battery).

My case I knew that will take 4 days off from strength training at gym so worked out harder 31 day before (had a challenge) and stayed on a strict diet to prepare for this weekend to enjoy it fully and guilt free if I eat more than I should, of course I knew I will walk a lot and go swimming so still would have sort of training done. But now the weekend is over and it’s time to get back with training and shaping up body plan and as today is  WW (Workout Wednesday) than today is a good day to talk about booty shape up exercises and actually do them.

Honestly every day is a good day to shape up booty because let’s be honest – who doesn’t want to have a firm and round butt? Here is a 17 exercises for Glutes that you should know and include in your workout Read More

Travel: Phuket must see or Christmas getaway guide

Celebrating new Year at beach with bear feet is one thing that I can cross out of my Travel-Bucket-list because this dream was full filled last year at Phuket, Thailand – the ultimate New Year’s destination where the weather is perfect, ranging 23°C-28°C at December and ideal for hitting beaches in flip flops and summer shorts and not getting burned immediately.

Actually I did not go there for partying but to rest, relax and regain strength for new year to start it fully recovered. Previous year has been crazily intense in work, in private life, travelling and never manage to fully stop, think and relax so this trip was something I was looking forward for last quarter and was counting days (seriously – had a countdown – Day Counter application in my phone to motivate me and keep me going).

As a traveler that prefers to have a real, local experience wherever I did not book a hotel but rented a flat in a condominium via Airbnb.com which is perfect way to save money and have your own way. Read More

Healthy breakfast

Really important!!! to eat right and healthy (and not only after workout)! a nice bowl (Always tastes better if eating from your favorite tableware. like my Brazilian breakfast bowl and Blond Amsterdam “Miss Brains” mug. (Love this line of products! and you can buy them online! soo cute!)

so my breakfast was: oat flakes(in hot water) strawberries and dewberries together with fresh mint tea with lime. super antioxidant and full with vitamins and really refreshing, even in summer!
so let’s get healthy and fit!8-)

Travel
I did it! I finally did it! I tried Alpine skiing (in Alps). I’ve been living in Milan for over 2 years now and i had never been there. So few weekends ago received a proposal of friends to go skiing to a lovely city  near Trentino – Folgaria. As my friend has rented an apartment there that it was even easier to enjoy all weekend and do not stress about finding an accommodation (which, I must say during winter season is pretty tough).
