Where is the best view in Sicily?

If I can tell you one tip about Sicily, which is totally worth the hustle, than it is – climb Etna, my friend! The best view ever as far as you can see! The air! the clouds! The experience! If traveling to Sicily than adding visiting Etna is a must! Even if not the fittest person or pro hiker – everyone will find something for their fitness level: starting from newbie to pro.

To be honest Etna was my main destination in Sicily and also in my Bucket list. Read More

A blissful road trip to Sicily’s east coast

Ever now and then a girl just needs to have her blissful getaway to recharge her batteries, wind her head and just enjoy the peace and quiet. Especially after having the most stressful summer of your life: long working hours and business travels, dealing with a distance wedding organization, which happens to be your own wedding. Needless to say that after all this is over you desperately need for some peace and quite to return to being just plain & sane you.  My inner self was saved by a sun catching and Ionian coast exploring in Sicily.

And it was just lovely! So colorful, sweet and simple that recommended to anyone to go for a roadtrip in Sicily and see for yourself! Read More

Summer has come to an end (even if doesn’t feel like that in +31C here in Milan already for weeks )and it means just one thing – it is time to get back to everyday routines and it is time to set some new workout and  fitness schedule, make some new goals, aims and challenges! ( not only inside but also the gym!). As it’s easier said than done than some healpful tips are always welcome! ( I am glad to share mine)!

After a long vacation in South of Italy and getting married! ( Dont’ worry will share  some pictures soon!)I will have to catch up with quite a lot of things, especially at fitness and healthy lifestyle level because the one who said that planning your own wedding will make you lose weight was definitely wrong ( my case at least!) and also visiting family in South of Italy where saying “no, grazie!” is not acceptable at the table when granny offers you another slice of home-made parmigiana or lasagna ( also you do not want ot say no to this treat).
don't say no to granny

You never say no to granny

I can bet I am not the only one to get back on track so here are some tips to get out of that post-vacation depression, start loosing that gained weight and get back in shape.
*Set a reachable goal
The best motivator is setting a clear and obtainable goal. Like loosing 2kg (gained in summer vacations) till winter holiday. (One of my goals too – get in shape for next holiday! so let’s do this together! )
It can also be a goal to get able to run 5km marathon and participate in The Color Run (the worlds funnest and colorful 5km ). I just participated again on 3rd September here in Milan! (Loads of colorful fun)!

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

We all know what is good for you and what should you be eating but sometimes, when the temptations are on every corner, (yes you,  delicious Italian gelato vendors, I refer to you) we forget about and just gave in to our cravings. As I am not in position to gave in to any temptations ( getting married and still under super-strict eating regimen) than I am here to share you some good tips for a healthy and balanced diet that might help you when you are doing your grocery shopping for the week.

Here are some tips approved by Women’s Health Nutritionist Eve Kalinik and me backing up the theory what should you eat for a healthy diet and weight loss.

June has been one crazy month with non stop travelling. Managed to visit Florence, Genoa, Nervi (in Italy), Lisbon, Porto, Ericeira and everything in between along the coast for pleasure, for pleasure but Berlin, Duisburg, Dusseldorf, and on top of that – Las Vegas for work. In short – I spent rushing from one place to another and trying to squeeze in all the works and duties, wedding organization and everyday tasks. And of course not forgetting about gym as well.

When traveling for work I always try to find a hotel with gym in it, but if not possible – going for a run in a nearest park if weather allows or workout at my room.

This time I was lucky as had been staying in this wonderful Vdara hotel and Spa at Las Vegas that had a great gym facilities. Here are some insight from my 6 am gym session. (Must say that noticed that gyms in Vegas are fuller at 6 am than at 10 am, guess jet lag and dedication is playing a big role there as well). Read More

Who doesn’t know Milan? Capital of Fashion, Design and Inspiration of many artists as well as models, starlets and celebs. A wonderful place to soak-in culture, get creative and be inspired. However last years been noticing that Milan is improving more also on healthy food trends and following the global trend for urban cities offering bigger and wider healthy lunch selection. What makes foodies, vegans and healthy eaters happier and life easier ( talking of leaving that pre-packed salad at home and going out with friends for lunch).

This time wanted to share with you one of my favorite, healthy hot-spots of Milan – That’s Vapore. This place is truly green (in thinking and interior) offering a nice concept lunches served in baskets that are freshly prepared every day. Milan there are just 2 places but they are expanding and opened their first place also in London (Baker Street) as well.  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

Fiber  is definitely not the sexiest substance on the planet but definitely useful one as the research shows that it definitely key on fighting to lose fat if consumed average 30g daily* however average European eats just 18g. The reason behind is that fiber keeps you satisfied and fuller with fewer calories for longer therefore preventing hunger cravings. 

It does not mean you have to go crazy scanning all the product labels next time you are grocery shopping, all right? Simple upgrade to your daily meals is enough and here is my top 10 to improve your fiber intake easily. 

 

Fiber rich foods

So just spice up your meals with shredded coconut, some chia seeds in your morning porridge or cocoa powder, some mushrooms in your scrambled eggs or popcorn in your midday snack and you will be feeling more satisfied and full that will eventually translate in eating less and therefore weight loss! Basically win-win situation!

Happy Friday and let’s spice up our dishes!

If been following my adventures than already know that last week were in Tel Aviv for work and as were there for 4 days than I had to adjust my workout schedule to the travel one doing my workouts on the road. Luckily form me in my hotel (Carlton – which, BTW, is A-mazing!) had also gym facilities so put my mind on peace and packed my workout equipment before hitting the road. 

As a determined lady who never skips leg day, I woke up along with the sunrise and to hit the gym. Not because I would be an early bird, but because when I am on the road there is just no way to find a time for an evening workout so prefer to rise with the birds to have one.

Isn’t the view lovely? This view is definitely worth the early wake up despite the hard time getting out of the bed. Read More
