Through the comments about the last post I got the impression that you guys are interested in the detox I am doing so I am sharing my meals for day 2 (yesterday), my workout routine, today’s outfit and a few pictures of my d.i.y. wrapbracelets. I know some of you had asked for instructions of the bracelets and headband I recently made. It’s hard to share a “how to” since the items are already finished and I can’t go back to show pictures of the process but I’ll try and draw up a little “how to” for the bracelets when I get the chance :) So here is my day in pictures:
detox day 2: outfit, food, gym & wrapbracelets.
After being way too cold yesterday, I wanted to be on the safe side today :) I am in love with my new blouse from Zara and I know I just recently wore it, but it’s so comfy and pretty I just had to get it out again today!!
Cheap Monday black skinny jeans
Scarf – gifted
UGG boots (tall / color: sand)
Nordstrom feather earrings
I like adding tiger nut flakes (german: Erdmandel Flocken) to my smoothie, they are a natural source of sweetness and super filling! They are kind of hard to find, so you might have to go to an organic store (Reformhaus). Maybe Farmer’s Market or Whole Foods might have them.
If you guys are ever interested in any of the recipes, feel free to email me. I mostly make them up as I go so I don’t have any links or books I could recommend but I’d be happy to write you an email with instructions.
I try to go to the gym every other day and since the weather is getting better, I am now trying to squeez in outdoor runs on my non-gym days :) Here is my current workout at the gym:
50 minutes cardio – treadmill
(25 min. uphill – 12% at 6km/h & then 20 min. running between 8.5 – 10km)
weights for the arms
(3 different exercises, 3 sets each – 20 reps)
(3 sets – 20 reps)
(9 sets – 20 reps, including side crunches & leg lifts)
With this workout I’m usually in and out of the gym in 1.5hrs, so definitely not too time consuming! I think it’s important to really push yourself on all these exercised, don’t go for the easiest weights or less incline, since if I’m already at the gym, I might as well make the best of it!! Also, I think that in order for it to be effective, it has to hurt! (However, I’m no expert so this is just my personal workout and my opinion of what works best)
Lastly, there are my wrapbracelets :) I totally love them and can’t wait to make more. The purple was my first, thats why one end is a little messy. I know it might not be everyone’s taste but I love the yellow with the black since it totally goes with my Michael Kors watch :)
Pheww, long post … hope you enjoyed the little update!
