HEALTHY LIVING: time to detox

Some of you may have already spotted a little detox-preview on my Instagram account (@vickyheiler), and so I thought it was time to give you a more detailed update after completing my first 2 days of nothing but liquids with Detox Delight. First things first: I know detoxing is experiencing a certain hype right now, and I know some of you are already sick of hearing about it. However, I am the kind of person that always needs to experience things in order to form an opinion. I don’t listen to judgements about other people, I try to get to know them. I don’t believe others when they say somethings doesn’t taste good, I like to try it myself. Naturally the same goes for detoxing!

HEALTHY LIVING: my 50-minute workout

It’s been a while since I last shared some of my workouts with you, so I wanted to give you a little update. Recently I’ve been running about 5-7km twice per week and have tried to hit the gym 1-2 times per week. Today was super rainy, so I decided to do a bit of interval training on the treadmill and work on my arms and abs. Personally, I feel that I can see the quickest results by combining high intensity interval training with weight training and some low intensity cardio training throughout the week. Here is what today’s 50-minute workout looked like:

RECIPE: sugar free chocolate chia pudding

I seriously used to hate breakfast! Well, maybe not hate (that is a pretty strong word), but simply didn’t feel hungry that early in the day and saw no point in eating without the desire to. So coffee on the go it was. However, since I’ve been working from home for the past 2 months, I’ve made it a point to start my day right with a healthy breakfast. Nothing big, but all the more nutritious to get my metabolism going. I usually have greek yogurt with fresh fruit or homemade bircher müsli, but recently I discovered my love for chia pudding, thanks to Kathi. I’ve been having it for the past week or so and am slightly obsessed, trying different variations on a daily basis. Today I wanted to share one of my favorite creations with you guys: Sugar free chocolate chia pudding! It literally tastes like nutella … just sayin’!

OUTFIT: sporty habits

Don’t ask me why, but my scale is currently trying to make me mad. I am not one to weigh myself on a daily basis since I have been around the same weight for a long time (which I am happy with). However, at the beginning of the Summer I started a new intense workout and have been SO good for the past 2 months. I’ve exercised between 3-5x per week and eaten fairly healthy. I was expecting to drop a pound or two before our trip to Portoroz, but instead gained some … So how do you stay motivated and keep yourself from eating cheeseburgers like there is no tomorrow? Cute workout gear! Seriously, it probably sounds so simple, but every time I add a new piece of workout clothing or equipment to my collection I get super excited about the first good sweat in it! Like my new Puma windbreaker, which I couldn’t wait to take out on a run earlier this week. Paired with a simple black and white look (which resembles most of my workout clothes) it adds the perfect highlight – not to mention the rosé gold zipper ♥ Soo, drumroll please for my new motivator:
