My 45-Minute Workout Routine

Four weeks from now, I will be basking under the sun in Ibiza, which means that bikini season is not over just yet. In preparation of our girls trip, I am currently trying to work out 3 to 4 times per week to get my tummy and legs a bit more toned. I usually like to mix things up, so those workouts consist of 1 or 2 runs, a little yoga or spinning and 1 gym session. Since I mostly head to the gym in the morning, I don’t have time for 2-hour workouts. Instead I like to keep it rather short and intense. It’s been a while since I last posted about my workout routine, so today I wanted to share my current favorite 45-minute workout routine at the gym with you guys.

HEALTHY LIVING: detox round 2

It has been almost exactly 6 months since the last time Kathi and I detoxed (check out our detox diary HERE), and in order kick-off the bikini season with a little help, we decided to go for round 2! Unfortunately, our schedules are so busy right now, that we were only able to squeeze in a 3-day juice cleanse, but I guess a 3-day cleanse is better than a no-day-cleanse, right? Since the last time around went fairly smooth for me (I didn’t get hungry at all during the 5 days and felt pretty good, even made it to the gym once), I decided to step it up a notch this time around and went for the Super Green Delight.

5 ways to a healthier lifestyle

Over the years, I feel like I have developed a fairly healthy lifestyle for myself, without obsessing over things too much. I enjoy the meals I eat, I have grown to love exercise and I am content with the way I look (most of the time). Personally, I am not a fan of certain diets, but instead prefer to make subtle long-term changes for the better. For me, radical changes are only short-term solutions, and in the end, I think it is more about being and living healthy. I do, however, think that a juice cleanse is an amazing thing. I did a 5-day cleanse back in December, and have noticed significant changes in my metabolism and well-being since then. To the point where I am actually already looking forward to the next cleanse in the Summer. But that’s off topic. Today, I want to share 5 ways to a healthier lifestyle, that will be easy to adapt and maintain over time.

HEALTHY LIVING: The Monday Ritual

Mondays aren’t always my favorite. It is hard to go back to emails and long to-do lists after all the weekend fun (I am sure most of you can relate). Lately, however, I’ve found a way to make Mondays pretty enjoyable. They are what I like to consider my “me days”. For a few weeks now, I’ve scheduled in my hot yoga class as an actual appointment in my calendar. It is at 5:30pm, which was usually almost impossible to make. There were other meetings or things that were prioritized, causing me to cancel on yoga and ending the day annoyed because I was skipping one of my favorite workouts – yet again. Now, however, that it is a fixed point in my agenda, it not hard at all. I treat it just like other appointments, with the same importance.
