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
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!
Once a year I try to do a blood test to see what my current health might be. One blood test will never tell me if I’m healthy, but I’ll have an idea where I might be at. I'm very curious and I like to check myself, see the changes in my body and blood… Continue reading What can your blood tell you?
The holiday season is almost here when we’ll meet with people we don’t have enough time to meet and we’ll eat things we usually don’t eat. BUT remember - holidays are never about food. We associate it with food. But imagine this – it’s Christmas Eve, you’re sitting alone, in front of the TV and… Continue reading How not to overeat during holidays
Remember how I said that running is not for everyone? I still think that, even though I run from time to time. I had put aside running since I ran my half-marathon in August because my goals were to build muscle mass and try out some strength programs, to see what happens. And I have… Continue reading What does running have to do with your heart rate?
