Squats, Hemp Protein Bars and becoming a hot chick ninja

•••
So at the beginning of the year I was all "I need to get motivated so that I can get my sassy pants back on (like, pronto!) so that I can be that confident woman in heels (or Birkenstocks, whatever tickles my fancy for the day) sauntering down my local high street with careless, fun-loving abandon and loving every second of my life", which obviously leads me[...]

Dating a Gym Rat: This is What Happens…

•••
I’ve been lucky enough to have found a boyfriend that is very dedicated - not only to me, but mostly to the gym, being fit and living a healthy lifestyle! I get a lot of questions about this from my family and friends. Does he eat normal? Do I also eat like he does? Does he eat strange things? How much time does he spend in the gym? What does he train? Why i[...]

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[...]

Hello you guys! As you might have heard, some of the M&S girls are going to try 'The 12 week - bikini body program by Kayla Itsines'. Now, the thing is I did a 8 week kayla program not long ago and I thought it might be fun to tell you guys something about my experiences with it.

Bike Riding Through San Francisco

•••
Bike riding is one of the best ways to get to know a place.  By renting a bike and going around you will better understand the region and feel almost like living as a local for a moment.  You have to figure out the pros and cons of bike riding. As a positive point, you are also doing some exercise while travelling and it looks much funnier than being in a gy[...]

•••
Hello, Day 6! For those following along, I am officially finished with my Milk & Sugar health challenge and Reset body diet. For posts 1 and 2, see here and here. To recap, I started this challenge after a particularly lousy week and realizing all the amazing bloggers here at Milk & Sugar are crazy health nuts while I spend half my time eating [...]

Health Challenge #1

•••
How blogging with a bunch of models and health nuts has inspired me to not be a slob. For a week anyway. Anyone who has navigated over to Milk & Sugar’s author biographies will see that this blog boasts a number of beautiful, healthy, and, let’s be real, hot bod bloggers. I, on the other hand, am over here just eating a hamburger with a side of pizza. I[...]

Victoria's Secret: How to get an Angel Body?

•••
It's December, the time of the year you prepare yourself for a good TV show. Get some cheese, chips, wine and settle in front of the TV. The annual Victoria’ Secret show starts. The only time a year when your boyfriend doesn’t mind watching a fashion show. For a short time: I find myself in bikini heaven… And then I look down and start to realize: Damn, I go[...]
