Ah, does anyone else feel like they just turned around for a second, and the next thing you know, summer was gone, autumn wind is slapping colourful leaves in your face and all of the sudden it’s so cold outside that your cat is much less interested in escaping through the window? Yep, it’s a sad, sad thing. But since I strive to be a cup-half-full kind of person, I like to look at the positives in each situation, and, in this case, a major plus is this – pumpkin season is here!

Simple skincare routine for the training girl: end the sweat breakouts

Just recently a friend of mine started training again in the pursuit of a better posture and improved overall heath. That’s great, of course, but the one complaint she got was that the frequent sweat sessions at the gym caused her to break out more than usual. That gave me the idea to share my modest skincare routine and the products that help me to keep my skin healthy and pimple free.In general…

What the Health: A critical viewpoint

You’ve probably already watched it, and if not, at least heard of it – the latest screamingly pro-vegan documentary, called What the Health. It’s all over the place and, honestly, I was getting sick of seeing comments like: “The film opened my eyes and I became vegan overnight.”I know it’s an extremely sensitive topic and everyone has something to say about it.

Oh, the sweet (not really) burn that an AMRAP workout gives!Yep, just last night I reminded myself exactly how much 20 minutes of constant movement can hurt you and simultaneously give you the endorphin fireworks. Boy, I love the endorphin fireworks! (Even if I had to agonise on the gym floor for good 5 minutes until I managed to get up.)If you are unfamiliar with the term, AMRAP stands for As Many Rounds…

Small Nike haul and how to buy gym clothes on a budget

When I was growing up, the idea of buying gym clothes was considered absurd. What was the point to buy new clothes just so you can sweat in them? I didn’t know much about functional clothes, nor about the importance of appropriate training shoes. So, the incredibly misinformed teenage me used whatever old and worn out sporty clothes (and shoes) I could find in my closet.But boy – how things change!Nowadays 2/3…

Lower back stretch routine plus Anterior pelvic tilt advice

I am the first one to rise my hand and admit of being guilty for being lazy and skipping mobility work and stretching. And yet, I would also be the first one to advocate it and tell you how absolutely crucial it is for the well-being of your body, especially when you put your body through stress of regular workouts.I think I’ve said it before, but here it is again – the time…
