I started the day off with a bowl of soy-coconut-yoghurt topped with frozen raspberries, raisins, oats and a drizzle of honey.

For lunch I had one of my all-time favourite combos! Avocado and chili hummus on rye bread, sooooo good 🙂

In the evening I just had some left-over quinoa/lentil mixture from the day before and whipped up some veggie and tofu stir-fry, that I seasoned with soy sauce and spices, to go with it.

What If You Could Not Fail?

Hi genies

Sometimes it’s hard to figure out what you want to do with your life. Nowadays, there are so many options that we have to navigate our way through.
We are caught between the choices of what is reasonable and sensible – and what is it that we really what, unrealistic as it may seem. Expectations, societal standards, odds – all weigh in on our final decisions, which only makes it harder to see clearly.
Something that can be a good idea to ask yourself when trying to figure out what you want to do and spend your time on, are the following questions:

-What you would attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?
-What makes you forget time and space around you by taking you to your “happy place”?
-What seems so big and so terrifying and yet so exciting and amazing that you would try anything to achieve it?

Maybe it’s not one specific thing that comes to your mind, but several things or maybe deep down you know exactly what it is, but you’re afraid of what other people think of it or that you cannot achieve it. Whatever it is, try it out. Talk to someone about it, make a plan, take step by step, don’t give up and don’t let anybody tell you that your dream doesn’t count. Because it does. Dreams are there for a reason.

P.S. And don’t forget: Never a failure, always a lesson. So really, you never fail, you just learn and get to start again, wiser.

Countdown…

I know sometimes that is a hard thing to do, but always try to remember that it’s not about the destination – but the journey! Find something to enjoy every step of the way, it’s your life we’re talking about after all…and if you can’t: change it, try something new! You owe that to yourself and you deserve to be happy 🙂

Back On Track!

Hi genies
So I don’t know if you remember this…but in a post that was published many moons ago, I told you that I have a big fitness event coming up this fall…a half marathon! And even though I’ve known this for quite a while, I haven’t really put in enough effort to become a better runner. But that is a thing of the past! I have come up with a plan that I really hope is going to work out for me.
Last week I stumbled across an interesting article stating that if you have been an inconsistent runner for a little while and have fallen off the band wagon, in order to get back into it again and start seeing some results, it is a good idea to go running for 30 minutes five times a week for a grand total of three weeks. And that’s exactly what I’ve decided to do!
While I struggled a little with my breathing and my legs felt really heavy, I did it and I felt so great afterwards. So that’s going to be my challenge for the next three weeks and then I’ll take it from there. For the time being I don’t measure how far or fast I run, I just focus on hitting 30 minutes on my watch and enjoying myself as much as I can.

And I have to admit, it definitely helped knowing that when I got home after my run, eggs and avocado were waiting for me!! 😉
