Another extremely hot Milan weekend is over but luckily for me, survived it by the swimming pool as trying to get some color before heading for vacations this weekend to a chilly Latvia. As it has been extremely hot last month here in Italy and in general south of Europe, than being extra careful when getting exposed in the sun is extremely important, especially when the UV index is as high as here and humidity is more than 90%.

Here are 7 the most important rules about Sun I have learned from Women’s Health, Cosmopolitan and dermatologists. Read More


Another weekend has gone by and here we are on Monday, making lists and plans for the week ahead of us, well at least that’s me and how I start every week – with a reflection of the previous one and planning the things that have to be done, obtained and achieved this week. Of course there comes also motivation and inspiration dose, which is absolutely necessary to give the right tune to the week. The amount of it depends on results and sum up of the previous week. As last week was spent trying to lose that extra kg taken during my Sicily getaway. Must say I am half way there and this week motivating myself to lose the other half and a little bit more so today I need some extra fitspiration, motivation and maybe some evil sarcastic gym humor to get me going and if you are like me – keep reading.

Fit food & Drinks, Travel

Waky waky, it’s Friday! While most of people are on their way to work I am was off to airport to head to Palermo, Sicily where will spend this weekend! So excited for all the new experiences in tastes ahead, but first things first – today is Foody Friday and as this is a travelling post than wanted also to share with you my travelling breakfast secret and tip to catch an early flight/train and not to snack at airport on something unhealthy.

My solution, that work’s always is overnight oats. It’s easy, fast and so delicious. It is perfect, if you do not have time to prepare breakfast at morning, so you prepare it the night before and just eat it before hitting the road or option B – take it with you in a food container.

The recipe is simple Read More

TGIF! One of the nicest letter combination of whole week  – Thanks God It’s Friday! Outside is sunny and mind is travelling and alreayd planning new things for the weekend ahead! Could have been a long weekend, as on Tuesday is a national holiday here in Italy, so could have taken also a day off on Monday and just stayed in, BUT as I am going for a short break next weekend, for my bf’s birthday, than will be going to work on Monday.

As my fit challange with myself is still on and and deadlne is approaching, than must be stronger than ever, however sometimes you do feel like having something to sattisfy that sweet tooth of ours but the same time need to stay on the strict objectives, so I came up with a recipe (really easy-peasy one) how to have soemthing sweet and still stick to the deit plan.

Greek yogurt + some immagination is the key and you have a wonderful, low call, high in protein and anti oxidants dessert that can be eaten also at evening! Here is how. Read More

On Sunday at Milan’s artificial lake- Idroscalo was first Fitness parade – Milano Spring Parade with many courses, exhibitions and music to get prepared for summer, get in shape and move to the music. As one fit missy with an explorer spirit always try out new and fun things of course I headed there as well to see and try for myself several activities and courses.

In my to do list, after studying the program, was a stage – dance class with a MOMA (dance school in Milan) instructor, Zumba (to do some aerobics and burn some calories),  Kangoo Power class as well as Nike Training Club class. Plan thut burns, huh?  Read More

Today is first day of May and that means that here in Milan is opening of the World Expo whih will be for next 6 months. This time the theme is Feeding the Planet – Energy for life, so it means all about food, nutrition, living on this planet. Already set my plans to go to visit it and see all the pavilions for myself but will wait when the buzz goes down and therefore having an lazy day at home and cooking is one of my favorite thing to do.

This time I am going to share my newest experiment – bread – olive bread recipe.  Read More

Last week has been difficult for me to remain on track with my workout and diet as went to Germany for a business trip for 4 days, and always when travelling eating right is one of the hardest tasks to full fill especially when you have limited food options and are obliged to eat out. For me it has been always an extra hard task to do to watch out to those calories and find the right food and combinations to stick as close to possible to my eating schedule or to close as to daily caloric intake as possible.

Last trip has been extra hard for me as had days when I knew I am not going to see anything healthy for whole day (indeed, had offered just pizza for lunch) which was dreadful so I just did not touch it. To make matters worse I got to the dinner only at 20:00, luckily for me I had predicted something similar to happen so had an apple and a power bar with me to resist the day. Read More


This week Milan is sunny and can totally feel the Spring in the air therefore I decided that today I will go to work again with my bike – my lovely Mr.Holland.

As I have moved out of the city center than bicycle comes here handy to speed up things and also is a great way to exercise while you are not really exercising – just reaching your destination, which you would need to do anyway – one way or another, so why not use this occasion to burn off some calories and cycling is a perfect way to burn off calories, it is fast and efficient and no pollution!

Sometimes on Mondays we need some extra motivation and inspiration to make the week start right and set some new smaller goals and objectives to reach.

To do so – here is my weeks motivation – fit-inspiration to get back on track and dream big.
