Intermittent Fasting? Diet Update.

A few months ago I talked about why I’m not practicing intermittent fasting. In case you wanna read about this first, you can find the blogpost here. However, sometimes your eating habits change because of your current life situation or just because you choose to try something new. So actually right now I’m kinda practicing intermittent fasting by accident, just that it’s not breakfast I leave out but dinner. Before you judge and say it’s unhealthy, I only do it to lose weight etc. – wrong, that’s not the case at all. First of all: I actually never got the…

New Year’s Resolutions – 2018, I’m ready for you.

2017 is over and 2018 is here.. how quickly can a year go by, seriously? To me, this past year felt like the shortest one ever so far. However, my last blogpost has been about 2017, this one is all about 2018! Last night I went through my list of resolutions for 2017 and while I didn’t stick to all of them, it definitely could have been worse. This time I don’t want to list a lot of resolutions, just a few that are really important to me. So these are the things that I truly want to work on…

Memories of 2017

The end of the year has almost come.. time to take a look back. 2017 has been so different from what I thought it would be. At the end of 2016 I thought this new year is going to be MY year. That I would quit my job, spend the winter outside of Germany and so much more. But well, not really.. in fact, 2017 hasn’t been much different from 2016 and quite uneventful. No big changes happened – no travels, no new job, no new relationship,.. Anyway, I think every year shapes you and your life in a certain way.…

My 5-Day Juice Cleanse Experience

[Enthält Werbung/Contains Advertising]   I said goodbye to coffee, oatmeal, chocolate, nut butter, pancakes and all my other favourite foods for 5 days from 21th to 25th November because of a 5-day juice fast. For the fast I decided to use the juices from www.green-detox.de because I loved their products when researching for different companies. They offer a lot of different treatments. 1 day, 3 days, 5 days,.. and also with different products. I got my delivery on time as promised and felt very well supported during my fast. I chose the 5-day treatment with 4x 500ml green juice, 1x 250ml…

29 things I’ve learnt in 29 years.

Today is my 29th birthday which I consider to be the perfect day to reflect on a few important things I’ve learnt in all of these years that have passed. So let me share with you 29 things I’ve learnt: Now is the only thing that’s real. The past has gone, the future is uncertain, so be present in this very moment. You will feel stress and anxiety fade away. When one door closes, another will open – always. So don’t be scared, take risks, life will always go on. There is a very close connection between your body and…

To be free.

So far in my life there had never been a point where I loved everything I do – except for when I was a child, I guess (although even back then there had been days I didn’t wanna go to kindergarten). In school I had to do stuff I couldn’t stand all the time. After school there was a phase when I had nothing to do except for a part-time job at Subway (actually my favourite job so far) but on the side had the pressure to write applications and go to job interviews. I didn’t enjoy the job I…

Don’t be jealous, be inspired.

To be completely honest with you: I’ve been jealous of others a lot for a long period of my life. Thoughts that went through my head were for example “why is she so pretty”, “why does she have this hot boyfriend”, “her life looks so perfect”, “everyone likes her, why can’t I be more like her” etc. And let’s face it: I guess most people can relate. And it’s human to have feelings and thoughts like this. In fact, jealousy itself isn’t a bad thing. It shows us what we desire and how we’d like our lives to look like. The…

My 3-day juice cleanse experience.

I’ve heard so many people talking about their experiences with juice fasting or juice cleansing, whatever you may call it, so I decided to give it a go. Definitely not to lose weight because that’s not what fasting is about and even if you lose some weight, it’s not sustainable when you don’t eat a healthy diet for the rest of the year. I simply wanted to do this out of curiosity, I’ve never done anything like this before. As I said, I’ve heard a lot about it – good and bad things – so I wanted to try it myself to…

Reflecting on 2016 & New Year’s resolutions for 2017.

I found a little list of New Year’s resolutions that I made last year for 2016 and while reading through it, I had to start smiling because I achieved like 90% of what I wrote down or even surpassed my goals. I’m not too serious when it comes to these resolutions because I believe in setting new goals anytime during the year. I also don’t think you need to start with working to achieve what you want right at the beginning of the year. For example: A lot of people have the goal to lose weight but maybe the start of…

Identity Crisis.. at the end of my 20s?

When you are in your teens, you are confused. You don’t really know who you are or who you wanna be. You know that it is normal and you believe that you’ll have it all figured out once you’re and adult and “grown up”. And here I sit, more confused than ever.. For all my life I’ve felt this weird inner “identity conflict”. I feel too versatile to feel steady. I like so many different things that don’t really fit together and I get thrilled by different things, different ideas and different lifestyles so easily. One day I’m obsessed with this…
