Sejuice me! Summer Slow juice recipes

•••
I wanted to incorporate more healthy food in my daily diet, so I decided I wanted to make more vegetable and fruit juices for myself. Juicing can be done with various kitchen appliances like a blender or centrifugal machine, but for multiple reasons (which you can all Google) I bought myself a new kitchen centerpiece: a slow juicer. (Slow)Juices are very co[...]

Diary Joyce: 12 weeks of Kayla's BBG

•••
Week 11 & 12: The last two weeks were a bit messy because of me moving in to my apartment. But part one of the BBG by Kayla is done! Because all the stuff were in boxes, making a shake was a big challenge. Unfortunately that's why I haven't made a green shake. I did however try to do the circuits as often as possible and I completed the LISS days by lif[...]

Diary Danielle: 12 weeks of Kayla's BBG

•••
Week 7: Last week I wrote about the fact that I have to take it easy with the Kayla BBG Program and that part hasn’t changed so far. I still have my injuries even when I slowed down with exercising last week. I did one our of spinning on Monday, one hour of Bodypump on Thursday and on Friday I did 45 minutes of cardio in the gym. I actually felt lazy after[...]

Diary Martine: 12 weeks of Kayla's BBG

•••
Week 10: Week 10 done already! Who would have thought that I would get this far (I didn't anyway)! I am proud of this, especially since I really had to push myself since week 9 because of some time constraints. Giving up would have been the easy way out... Although I notice I get stronger and I have this little voice in my head that keeps me going by sayin[...]

The journey of Yoga

•••
In the journey of Yoga we often question our daily practice. Especially when we start working on harder postures, which put us in physical and mental discomfort situation. Our breathing becomes irregular, the mind asks us why we are there and our body complains to pain. It is exactly at this point (which can come at different times for each individual) that [...]

Nectar of the gods

•••
When I became a vegetarian about two years ago, I chose - besides having less cruelty in my plate- to lead a healthy and balanced diet. My day-to-day included industrialized dairy, full of sugars and fats. Despite not having abandoned the consumption of dairy products and eggs, whenever I do consume them they must be organic and from animals bred free. But [...]

Cumbuco – Brazilian Kitesurf Paradise

Brazilian beaches are very famous worldwide and the practice of nautical sports is very usual along the coast. In the northeast region of this huge country you can find some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Therefore, there are hundreds of places where to practice Kitesurf. Today I’ll talk about one of these paradisiacal beaches: Cumbuco. This pl[...]

Discipline; How to get it and how to stay disciplined?

•••
Discipline, sometimes I have it and sometimes I don’t. To be honest, it fluctuates like the Dutch weather. I set my goal, plan my workouts and make grocery lists and I go for it, 100%. I manage to hold on to my schedule for quite long actually, so discipline is there, somewhere! But after celebrating my holidays I ALWAYS have difficulty finding my discipline[...]

Marathon: de theorie

•••
Ik droom van een marathon, breng ik zondag middag na het familiediner aan. Mijn vader verslikt zich in zijn koffie. "Ja, wij ook" schatert mijn broer(tje). "Ik meen het wel... denk ik toch", voeg ik toch nog toe. Papa zet zijn koffie neer en gaat voorzichtig verder: "Ik bracht jou toch genoeg algemene kennis bij opdat jij zou weten dat dat een afstand van 42[...]
