Parunāsim par veselīgu dzīvesveidu! Vai tu zini, kas tajā ietilpst? Pamats veselīgam dzīvesveidam: - fiziskās aktivitātes; - veselīga pārtika; - stresa menedžments; - izvairīšanās no riskantām substancēm; - miegs; - attiecības. Izdzīvošanas speciālisti allaž atgādina, ka mēs varam iztikt 3 minūtes bez elpošanas, 3 stundas ekstrēmos apstākļos bez pajumtes, 3 dienas bez ūdens un 3 nedēļas bez ēšanas. Kāds tam sakars ar veselīgu dzīvesveidu? Jāatceras,… Continue reading Vai tu zini, kas ir veselīgs dzīvesveids?
4.09. Week 28, which means - 3rd TRIMESTER. We have a flight to Greece today. The only bad thing about it - those damned compression socks! I really don’t know how people do it... I will be huffing and puffing and sweating. Any workout at the gym is so much easier than this. BUT getting… Continue reading Pregnancy diaries: Third trimester
Let me start off by saying – if you haven’t worked out before going into your pregnancy, you have no business going into it now that you’re pregnant. I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be active, but if we’re talking standard strength training, using weights, then this is not the time to start. If we’ve… Continue reading Strength training and pregnancy
01.07. My July is starting out with nausea and headaches again. It’s funny how you know all the things you shouldn’t do – like, you should sleep a lot while pregnant, but then a party comes along and you’re like – I feel fine and it’s no biggy to stay awake until 2AM. Well, it… Continue reading Pregnancy diaries: Second trimester
This is a super controversial topic. I know. A lot of the concern usually comes from a very good place, but as a trainer, I sometimes don’t understand the expertise on my pregnancy and training regimen from other people, so I decided on putting down what I think of it all... To start – I… Continue reading Pregnancy and running
APRIL 06.04. Hey, it turns out I’m pregnant… SURPRISE!!!!! I was about a week and a half after my appointment to my OB-GYN (because my period was late and I was blaming some hormonal imbalances or my thyroid for all of this mess), but then, out of nowhere, I got the sorest breasts in my… Continue reading Pregnancy diaries: First trimester
I have been thinking long and hard – how much do I want to share about my pregnancy. Should I share at all? Should I not? Many people are superstitious about this time of their lives. Well, I am not superstitious – not about this time or any other time in my life, really. And… Continue reading How my pregnancy story started?
So, you have decided that you want to achieve something. It can be any part of your life – fitness, love or work life – but you are ready to go at it. Even if you know where to start (because sometimes it feels like you don’t even know where to start the change) you… Continue reading Goal setting how to’s
The end of 2018 and the start of 2019 was hectic, to say the least. BUT – all things happen for a good reason and the reason right this time was – my Health Coach studies and an exam. Now I’m officially an American Council on Exercise certified Health Coach. These studies showed me so… Continue reading Health coaching? Tell me more…
At the early November of 2018, my friend and I decided to go to Amsterdam. Last time I’d been to Amsterdam was about 15 years ago, so I was excited. We went for the canals and… well… brownies, but I can tell you that I most definitely would’ve stayed for the food and the atmosphere.… Continue reading Hey, Amsterdam. You’re lovely!
