hqdefault
Meep meep, MUD!

Off road running should be any runners favorite (apparently, a lot of professional marathon runners practice off-road. – I’ve done my homework ; ) ). And here’s why:

Hey all,

Times are changin’. Well my life slowly is. It motivates and inspires.

Thats all for now, have a great day!

2015 Resolution Retry: 3 tips

new-years-resolutionsI’m not a ‘New Years resolutions’- type of girl. But hey, for many of us a fixed term or date actually works to start something good. And the start is usually the easiest.

So, the first month of 2015 is over now. Did you have resolutions but gave up on them already? No worries, you still have 11 more months to try again ; ). And summer is coming up (also a good motivator). You don’t need a New Years Eve to start something good. If you gave up already, theres no reason not to do a ‘Retry’.

Some people have asked me what I find is the best way to lose weight, stay motivated and disciplined.  So here are 3 tips for your Retry in the next 11 months: Continue reading “2015 Resolution Retry: 3 tips”

I’m back! -with some lessons

Hi, I’m back! Been gone for too long.. but as I said some time ago: I had decided it is okay to give yourself a break sometimes. Nobody told be to blog every week –well, nobody else but me.

I’ve had ups and downs like every other human being, busy with work and social life –building up my blog simply wasn’t the biggest priority on my list..


lesson #1 here: stay focused on priorities

and don’t feel bad for putting other things at the side for a while


But, however busy or sometimes down, my workouts never failed to make me stay positive about all, always! : )


lesson #2: Never stop exercising.

No matter how busy or low you feel. Workout GIVES energy in both body and mind..

it simply makes you feel goood (never see it as a ‘must do’- but rather as a stress relief and anti-depressant. ‘Cause it is ! ).

And well..  it makes you look fit too.. (love that pay-off!)

The importance of having gym buddies (for all shapes & sizes)

MjAxMy0zY2E4N2ZmZjdmNWVhN2U2_523748e0d59a5

People that don’t train usually don’t want to hear about your workout.  I do get blank faces whenever I start about it, all enthusiastic. At my second sentence I usually notice the “I really don’t want to hear about this, but I’m trying to look interested”-face; so I end it with a  “….in short: it was good!”. All good, I get it totally. But I do really enjoy ALSO having friends around me with who I CAN share ‘gym talk’ with. It’s fun and motivational too.

I’m realizing ‘the joy of shared interest’ is probably even more important for people with tougher ‘fit-goals’ to reach. People trying to seriously lose weight when others around them don’t have weight problems. Sure, all will be happy for you when you lose pounds. But probably wont get how hard it truly is to reach your goals (and stay there).
