FOOD: before I started this whole project my eating habits were horrible because of some personal reasons. It’s still not what it should be but at least I don’t skip meals anymore, I eat more regularly and I try to eat as healthy as I can. That doesn’t mean I skip all the cookies of course.
Most of the time I start breakfast with (greek) yoghurt, muesli or Special K and some fresh fruit. Sometimes I add some raisins and honey to make it less boring. I also eat a lot of fruit, drink smoothies now and then for an energy boost and my new favourite snack is tangerines covered with dark chocolate (healthier than milk chocolate) and a pinch of sea salt. Further I don’t eat a lot of meat, but I eat a lot of vegetables and fish like salmon. Would you be interested to see more recipes on the blog?
WORK OUT: Something else that changed a lot is working out. It was never my intention to lose weight (I should gain weight to be honest) but get a better condition and get a little more toned. Still working on that part.
I bought myself a longboard which I enjoyed while it was summer but now it’s rainy and cold I like to work out in my room. I got a little help from blogilates and I gathered myself some handy exercises too which you can find here, here, here and here.
SPORTSWEAR: Working out is a lot more fun when you have cool sport clothes! When I managed to stick to my working out routine, I rewarded myself with a new top, or a new pair of running shoes. That way it’s easier to keep going. I found a lot (with discounts!) here.
DRINK WATER: From always drinking soda, I now only try to drink soda when I eat, just because I think it’s more tasty. In between meals I try to drink as much water as I can. I actually don’t like water so sometimes I add some lemon or cucumber to get some flavor. I know that I should drink even more water but I’m afraid I like my coke a day too much. It does justice for your body though, inside AND outside.
THE OUTSIDE: As much I want to feel good inside, it’s also important for me to look good on the outside. When I pamper myself with scrubs and bodylotions I get more aware of my body and it’s somehow easier to stick with my workout routine. Favourites are scrub from & Other Stories and Rituals and body butter from Kiehls.
So, that was it, let’s get started this new year, 166 days to go till summer so time to get bikiniproof!
