3-day juice cleanse by Jus by Julie

Just like for a lot of girls and women, it’s really hard for me to lose weight and to obtain the weight I have. I usually don’t really care about the number, but if I weigh in every once in a while and the number is really high, that’s a real disappointment for me. I work out a lot, which means I need a lot of food, so I stopped doing crash diets months ago, because they never help me anyway. I believe that changing your eating pattern helps way better to actually reach your goal weight.

On May 10th I’m running my first half marathon, and I felt like I was gaining so much weight lately and I was losing my motivation to really go for it. I just came back from a late birthday weekend with cake and cookies, and I loved it, but it just isn’t good for my body. I’ve been wanting to try a juice cleanse for a while now and after I read about Jus by Julie, I thought it would be the perfect occasion to start over with a clean body, great workouts and great self-confidence.

LA winter calls for an ice cold green drink

You’ve probably saw it already on the Instagram posts of your favorite LA bloggers, but in case you didn’t I can assure you… This year’s LA winter is hotter than ever. With temperatures around 85 degrees Fahrenheit (+/- 30 degrees Celsius) it is almost too hot to go for a run, which isn’t really good for my training schedule. 😉 On Wednessday I went for a 6 miles run and after 3,5 miles I had to take a break because I couldn’t stand the heat anymore. Anyway, with these temperatures it’s really important to keep hydrated, and what’s a better way to do that than to make a delicious green drink?! Continue reading

Spinach smoothie with a touch of lemon

As promised in one of my previous posts, I would share my healthy recipes with you guys. I know lots of people who currently have exams and I think it would be great for them to drink a smoothie a day. Like that, you get enough vitamins to get through the day, you feel more energetic and you are working on those health resolutions that you’ve set on the first day of the year. Continue reading

Pink smoothie


DSC_9491

Hi everyone,

Today’s post is all about health. I’ve listed several new years resolutions for myself and among them there are those typical resolutions about being healthier. I always put those in there, and even though I think I was pretty healthy this year, I’m going to do even better next year.

I figured it didn’t make sense to wait till 2014 to eat/drink more vitamins, so I decided to make my first smoothie today already. I made this recipe up, and I hope there will be many other recipes to follow in the next couple of months. Continue reading

Pink Brunch


Pink Brunch

Exactly 1 month ago my friends and I organized a pink brunch just for the girls! The concept is really simple: You bring all the yummiest stuff with you and try to have a touch of pink in all of it! We had fruits, freshly squeezed orange juice, pancakes, cupcakes, bagels with salmon and Philadelphia… Ok not everything was pink, but at least we tried!
