Motivation-Bubble: Swimming…

Hi genies
One of my favourite exercises is swimming. When I was younger I even went to a swimming club regularly. Although I love it, I always had some sort of excuse not to go, I was either too lazy, I didn’t have time or I simply didn’t think of it (THIS POST by Rosie The Londoner reminded me of my passion for swimming again;) )…until today!

The public pool is only a short walking distance away from where I live (however, UPHILL…) and as it was a rainy Sunday, I didn’t really have any other plans for the rest of the day. So I decided to finally get going and swim some lapses! At first my goal was to swim for 30 min but somehow I ended up swimming for a whole hour. I really enjoyed it and I’m so happy that I finally went. Now I just have to try to make a habit out of it! Let’s see if I can do it! There are so many health benefits connected to swimming such as living longer, stress reduction, low risk of injuries, increased flexibility, lower risk of getting diabetes, a healthier and stronger heart and overall improved muscle strength and tone, (just to name a few) to keep you motivated to stay on track! If you would like to read more about the health benefits of swimming, HERE is an interesting article for you to read.

What is your favourite exercise? Do you like to swim?

Dinner

Dinner

Yup, I loooove pizza…so I couldn’t decide on just one flavour. So one half of the pizza is Margherita and the other one is Diavola which means one of the toppings is spicy pepperoni/salami. Yumm!

What is your favourite pizza topping?

Queen B…

Hi genies
I’m not a teacher, babe,
But I can teach you something,
Not a preacher
But we can pray if you wanna
Ain’t a doctor
But I can make you feel better
But I’m great at writing physical love letters
I’m a freak, all day, all night…

Hi genies 🙂

Breakfast

Breakfast

French Toast is not something I usually have for breakfast but I was really craving it…so I decided to treat myself to some! However, I kind of tweaked the traditional recipe a little bit – so I soaked some whole wheat toast in a mixture of egg whites and milk, fried it and to finish it off I drizzled some cinnamon and honey on top…YUMM!

Lunch

Lunch

My lunch consisted of some delicious left overs from the night before…homemade vegetable stew and polenta 🙂

Snack

Snack

It was a really rainy afternoon…so I just had to make myself some hot chocolate 😉

Dinner

Dinner

For Dinner I had some chicken curry on cauliflower “rice” (blend up the cauliflower until it sort of looks like rice and then fry it for a little bit) with salted peanuts and raisins!

That’s it! Hope you enjoyed 😉

Nude Nails…

Hi genies
Lately I haven’t been able to paint my nails with vibrant colours as I am working as a waiter at special events and my make up has to be neutral…therefore I have been loving nude nail polish! At the moment my favourite one is called Tickle My France-y by OPI!

I just love how elegant and “polished” nude nails look! What’s your favourite nude nail polish?

xx love
