As easy as 123

If you are not familiar with Overnight Oats, then this article will simplify your breakfast life, I promise! 

This is such an easy, healthy and delicious breakfast that does not include cooking or washing dishes except for one jar!

Personally I prepare this jar of deliciousness the night before and I grab it form the fridge the next morning.
This is a very filling breakfast so I usually enjoy it half an hour after my green smoothie and after an exhausting workout.

Spin that bike!

The first time I ever participated in a spin class was about 2 years ago and I seriously thought that this was my final hour! I was breathing so heavily that my heart skipped some beats!

To this day, two years later, my heart still skips some beats and my face turns purple on a regular basis! Why am I doing this to myself you ask? Well, because it’s by far the best and hardest cardio for my body!

I know I shouldn’t turn purple, but what can I say? I like to push it 🙂

All about swimming and my Interview with Coach Laura Schuster

Swimming, my first love and probably my last one too. My parents would joke that I swam before I walked and that my shoulders were bigger than my dads at times. Yes those shoulders! Let me tell you!

For years I had a love/hate relationship with my body! I was strong, I was healthy but I was muscular and kind of bulky. Swimming competitively for years, especially while growing up, does that. On the flip side, however, never in my life have I had back problems, all my joints are in perfect shape and even after years of smoking my lung capacity is awesome (that doesn’t mean you should be smoking and swimming). 🙂

TRX! 

I used to be one of these judgers, you know the one watching people hanging from these straps and thinking: “Well, this can’t be that hard!”
After all I was in shape, I swam, I ran and I lifted some weights, so I figured I am going to try this, looks more fun than actual work!

Boy was I wrong!! The first time I ever did TRX was in a 45 min class, after that I wasn’t able to properly sit on a toilet seat for three straight days. My but muscles where so weak after this workout that I had to grab the wall next to the toilet to sit down and get back up. I know this might be TMI for some of you but I wanted to get my point across! 🙂 Continue reading
