Hi guys,

Last weekend I went all the way up to Santa Barbara where I ran my first half marathon. I was so excited about this because I worked hard to get in shape and to be able to run a good time. Continue reading

This week is the last week of school, which means lots of pot locks. For my weight lifting class we decided to all bring something healthy, so I decided to get crafty in the kitchen and make these delicious and pretty easy oven baked sweet potato chips. I just recently got these amazing jars at Bormioli Rocco and I thought they were perfect to present my healthy recipes in. What do you think about them? 😉 Continue reading

3-day juice cleanse by Jus by Julie


DSC_1332

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.

Take a break & enjoy the view


IMG_4196

Sometimes, people tend to overdo. It often happens to me and then I end up injured on my foot or back, or something else that makes me feel bad comes up. Whenever I run, I need to take breaks. Not only because I feel tired or because I’m thirsty. Sometimes I just take a break because, especially when I’m running at the strand, I’m falling in love with the view. Continue reading

Recipe: Guilt-free chocolate

One of my favorite snacks is chocolate. I know that lots of people will agree with me when I say that it’s not easy to say no to chocolate when it’s offered to you. I’ve been trying out quite a few clean recipes lately, but I have to admit that this is one of my favorite ones. What would you think of eating chocolate without feeling guilty about it? Wouldn’t that be amazing? For me, it sure is! The best of all is that it takes you no more than 10 minutes to make these raw, vegan & gluten free chocolates. Continue reading

Health essentials: Maty’s Healthy Products

A little while ago, I decided for myself that I would start living a healthier lifestyle. Every since starting school, I have a pretty busy schedule. I take care of the baby during the day, rush to school in the nights, make sure I follow my running schedule 5 days a week and do homework whenever I find the time. When everything feels like a rush in your life (Don’t understand me wrong, I love the life I’m living and I chose to be so busy!), a good night of sleep is extremely important.

I have always been a bad sleeper. I used to barely need any sleep. I was ok with sleeping 6 hours a night, but after I got mono/Pfeiffer’s disease about 6 years ago, I started needing much more sleep, which was a hard thing for me. The amount of hours you sleep is part of your lifestyle and suddenly I had 2 hours less to be productive during the day.  Continue reading
