Victoria’s Secret announces bikini season … let’s get this workout done!

If you needed a little motivation today to get your workout done, this video should be just fine. I guess Victoria’s Secret is releasing their bathing suits collection tomorrow – they said “check out tomorrow” – and uploaded this video to have us waiting. As you may know, i’m slightly obsessed with VS and the angels so I had to post it. And can’t wait to see and buy bikinis – now let’s get in shape for summer!

Spread the love and get ready for bikinis!

I’m a boxer now (or at least for the next five minutes)

Today, I just did something that doesn’t look like me, that I would always say would be cool to do but that I would never actually do: I went to a french boxing class (difference with english boxing is that in french boxing, you can use your feet too).

I am really not good, seriously, but I guess nobody ever is on their first try. And I’m just terrified that if I continue, I will have to fight against a guy or even a way-better-boxer-than-me girl. Oh, and did I mention that the gloves are the worst thing ever? They smell like one million people wore them (which is actually true) and you just sweat so much in them, it’s disgusting.

Yet, I had a great time. I laughed a lot (I went there with a friend!) and I loved that with it I got my workout done in a cool, unusual way. A lot less boring than treadmill, believe me. I am a bit scared to continue, this is not my kind of sport but I think this could be a great experience. It’s about going beyond my limits, taking risk and fighting fear. In a way, I would much rather go back to my dance lessons, which I love deeply. But boxing can bring me a lot, on many levels.

This being said, let’s see how long this lasts ;)
Spread the love, xx

Post-Christmas Detox: Welcome fruits and sweat

We are all in the same situation right now. We all gained 3 – if not 5 – pounds during the Christmas week-end. I you didn’t, you are a lucky bitch, therefore, we hate you.

We now have to enter the sad world which is “post-christmas: welcome back to the harsh reality”. This crual world in which it is not okay to have another plate of potatoes or eat chocolate treats like it is no big deal. Finish. Over. The end. You will now come back to your sweet plates of salad with … Salad. And a few carrots. Yummy.

Since I am a very nice person, I am gonna share with you my little tips for losing the weight you gained. It is not easy though. We will have to suffer, loves. And we promise: we will be more careful next year (sure, sure!!)

What do I drink? Green tea. It is THE best for weight loss. I also drink at least 2L of water with half a lemon juice in it. And if you are really addicted to sodas, only a little diet coke is allowed. Don’t even dare touching alcohol! I SEE YOU!

What do I eat? Vegetables with just a little bit of vegetables. And fruits. Seriously, your stomack will thank you. Smoothies are your new best friend. Mix one fat free yoghourt with half a cucumber, an ice cub and mint leaves, drink the delicious mixture and thank me later. Your new dinner will be soup. It makes you feel quite full, it is super yummy and good for your body. Need a snack? Grapefruit is my god! If you want meat, your only options are chicken and turkey. Be strong, it will be worth it.

How do I move my body? I run. Go for a run at least every two days and run as much/fast as you can. Add workouts to that run. One workout idea: 20 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 20 lunges, 20 jump squats (repeat 2 more times). And dance. I put on super catchy music and dance like an insane person with my sister. Not only does this burn quite a few calories but it also helps you to relax and change your mind.

Good luck babies, we can do it.
