you might have seen on my facebook page that i do a lot of workouts at home. i do own a gym membership and i adore running outside but sometimes i really don’t have the time to get dressed and go out to do my workouts. doing workouts at home is SO easy and SO time efficient. there is no excuse not to do it.

I KNOW that those girls and guys instructing the videos are mostly always totally nuts. they creep the shit out of me. the way they yell and smile. but here’s my favorite videos, some are shorter, some are longer. even if you’re super busy, just doing a 10 minute workout will make you feel better – pinkyswear! fit and healthy, not skin and bones!

the freakin hardest workout i know. been doing it for years, still not managing to do it in the same pace:

oh and i ABSOLUTELY LOVE dance workouts. just like nicole richie right here. doesn’t it wanna make you dance??


deep frozen spinach + soy milk

alright, alright! this looks like the most disgusting piece of crap you’ve ever seen. but it’s spinach + blueberries that make this awful color. this breakfast smoothie gives you LOADS of vitamins for the day and tastes so yummy. perfect for people like me, that are always in a rush. just throw whatever you like in the mixer and ENJOY.


recently i have been talking about the olympics and sports with so many people, that i decided to start a column and post try to post about my fitness routine / nutrition every monday. they’re all gonna be labeled as fitness and they’re not only supposed to help me find motivation but also give you some motivation to take care of your health and bodies. i have had a very personal connection to how bad nutrition and little excercise can cause illness or even death. also i have been very sick of all those “skinny tumblrs”, where anorexic girls propagate a lifestyle that includes counting calories and starving yourself. i am in the lucky position that i was raised with a lot of self-confidence and i don’t feel the need to be skinnier that i can be or my genes allow me to be. everyone is different and it’s not about the number on your scale, it’s about how you feel on the inside. loving yourself if the most important thing in live, because it’s the only thing that will last when everything is said and done. sports and eating things that make your brain work will change your life – i promise! BEING STRONG ALWAYS FEELS BETTER THAN BEING SKINNY.
now i will stop talking like a freaking sect leader and start doing some pins on my brand new pinterest get healthy board.


i have had this blog for a long time now, but i realized that i have never written anything about my work outs here. sports are such an important part of my life and with my slight ADHD i really need to move, otherwise i’ll freak out. unfortunately there’s not a lot of time to do sports during the week, since i work full-time and i have blog related events almost every night of the week. BUT i am in the lucky position to choose between two really nice gyms and i try to go there as often as i can. next week i will be running a 16km run and i am trying to get prepared as best as i can. i decided to put together a little routine that always works for me:
1. warm up: cycling or cross-trainer 20 min.
2. strength: 3 x 15 sit-ups / 3 x 15 push-ups / 3 x 15 lunges
3. cardio: 45 min. running
4. cool down: 10 min. walking
here are some advices that will make your life a lot easier when you work out:
1. hydration: drink, drink, drink a LOT of water
2. music: have a good playlist prepared, music pushes you more than anything!
3. pulse: work with a heart rate monitor! it will prevent you from running out of breath before you have even started your workout
4. reward yourself: for every 10 min. more you spend on the treadmill, get yourself a little reward
5. keep a diary: take notes of your work-outs, you will see how much you have done and it will “force” you to keep exercising every week
6. buy fashionable active wear: this is probably the most girlie thing i have ever written here, but fashion is also important to me in the gym! it sounds extremely superficial, but i feel so much more better in cool active clothing (and i feel like a bad ass triathlon competitor or something)
7. S-T-R-E-T-C-H: stretching is SOOOO important for your entire body and the work outs coming. so never forget to STRETCH! (have i emphasized it enough with all those capitalized words and exclamation marks?)
after i work out i always have a snack on my way home, before cooking a proper meal. i mostly carry an apple, banana, a smoothie or some whole-wheat crackers with me. when working out it’s REALLY important to eat. starving yourself will get ya nowhere (old gangster lady voice)!
