I had a different idea for a post today, than the one you are gonna read now! But when I opened the empty word page, from nowhere, I remembered about a post, I wrote last year ( “What I learned in 2011?”). Then I thought “ Why not write a post like this for 2012?” Probably you are wondering why in the world you would care what I learned in 2012? Well, you never know…. Sometimes a person needs to read something, he already knows, in order to get all the pieces from the puzzle, which will help him realize what he went through, how far he has come and how much he grew on the way!
A couple days ago, I posted a picture of my lunch on my Facebook page. Then I got asked about the recipe, and because it is Sunday- a day for healthy recipes on my blog, I will share with you how to prepare this omelet.
How is your holiday week going? Mine is great! I and my machines haven’t cheated on our healthy lifestyle and we are still going strong in the gym! Besides that I have not cheated on my lovely, clean food and while others eat plenty of sugar and wheat, I am eating plenty of steaks and veggies!
Hope that you are doing great with your clean eating! No matter if you slipped a little bit, don’t beat yourself down, and just keep on preparing good food and lifting some heavy weights!
Meanwhile don’t forget to read my favorite reads of the week!
The other day I had a long walk in the park, with a friend, who always gives me the best advices or at least offers me a different perspective, so I could find the solution on my own! We were talking about my passion towards reading and my desperate desire to know A LOT, when he asked me, why I never write about supplements! I gave it a thought and I realized he was right! I write about everything else, but I rarely mention supplements! And by supplements, I am not talking about “The chemicals” that all women run from and a lot of man feel tempted to try! A supplement is just an addition to your diet!
Personally, I rarely take supplements( almost never), because I am not very consistent with them, and I could drink a bottle of vitamin C for a whole year, just because I forget taking the daily dose! But there is one supplement, which I often take- magnesium!
Nowadays, almost everybody, if not everybody has magnesium deficiency! It could be due to the lower quality of the food we eat! In the past, our ancestors used to eat food, which was richer in magnesium. And because there was enough magnesium from external sources, our body did not adapt to store it! And this is the way our body functions today! The bad news is that nowadays, we eat less of the foods, which contain magnesium! Besides that our consumption of alcohol and sugar is pretty high, and sugar and alcohol, increase the deposition of magnesium with the urine. The loss of magnesium could be influenced by the presence, respectively by the absence of some hormones. For example too much stress can lead to the loss of magnesium! That means that we are unconsciously robbing our body from magnesium!
That’s not a big deal, you’d think! But magnesium is (more…)
Lately , a lot of my readers, ask me some interesting questions! Interesting, in a sense, that a lot of people want to know the answer, but rarely find the courage to ask! Last week, I got such a question, and because I noticed that a lot of women are interested in the answer, I decided to pay special attention to it and share my opinion with you!
I want to ask you a question! Do you think that this way of eating and mostly, workouts with weights, have the same impact on every woman’s body?(…) When I eat in adequate quantities, I have energy, but my legs get huge. And when I limit the calories they don’t get big, but I can’t get the muscle definition I am aiming for. I don’t want huge legs, I just want some muscle definition and feminine body, like the fitness models on the pictures!
What impresses me is the discomfort of most women, who train with weights, that their legs are gonna get huge! Here comes the question, what is the definition of huge? My observations, show me that most women, find defects on their bodies, where in reality they don’t exists!
Some time ago, a really beautiful girl, wrote me a message. She explained how her legs become huge from lifting weights. She sent me a picture and tell you the truth she looked exceptionally… GOOD! She looked like a cover, fitness model!
If we don’t take into account the inclination of women, to always find something they don’t like in their appearance, I will share with you, what might happen, when you start lifting weights and eating the way I do! My opinion is based on my personal experience- what happened with me and what happens with women that I coach!
If, when you start lifting weights, you have some excess weight, at the beginning your body will probably start looking tighter, but your measures won’t decrease. Why? (more…)
If you are like me, probably you always find time to workout. No matter if you have to stay late at the office, if you are stuck in traffic, if it is raining outside, if you have to clean, cook, study or whatever- there is always time for a workout! Unfortunately a big per cent of people, claim that they have the desire to workout, but they could hardly find time to do it. If you are a person with clear, set goals, which require good time management, the excuse “ I do not have time”, rarely works!
Not a few people think, that in order to have a good workout, you need to have a structured program, at least two free hours to stay in the gym, some additional time for all the rituals that follow the workout( I mean what you eat before the workout and after the workout). Truth is that this concerns only professional athletes. If you are a professional swimmer- yea, it would be normal to workout twice a day and meanwhile fit a workout in the weightlifting room. You will probably need to pay more attention to the food and supplements you take.
The problem is that most of you aren’t professional athletes, and have no intention on becoming one! Did you forget why you want to workout? Because you want to be healthy and fit! Well then workout in a way to achieve exactly this!
I remember the first time I decided to visit the weightlifting room. I spend a lot of time, walking around the building and I couldn’t find the courage to walk inside! Until then, I have never touched weights and I did not know what to expect. When I go somewhere, I love knowing that I belong there, and that day I was convinced I was gonna resemble a primal person, teleported in 21st century!
After a lot of hesitating, I dared to walk in the weightlifting room. I felt weird. The countless number of machines in the gym, overwhelmed me. They looked like an invention by some great scientist, and I had no idea what to do with them! Men, walking around, acting strong and staring with the bad look, only made me feel worse and made me ask myself, what was I doing there!
Obviously you are getting my idea, and I am no exception- as most of you are fearing to enter the gym, I did too. I hope that you will trust me, that after all it is not that scary, and now I am totally hooked and I never skip a day without entering the weightlifting room!
In order to encourage you to give it a try, I decided to give you a couple tips, how you could feel more comfortable in the weightlifting room!
We are constantly repeated the idea, that what happens now and what is gonna happen in the future is pretty much a result from our past. “The past” exists, as an obtrude guest on the present. At times we do not realize it, but a big part of our views, limiting beliefs, irrational impulses and prejudiced perceptions, took a deep root in the experience of the past!
I recently read a book, where the author expressed the following statement: “…to realize, that exactly the yet invisible future, and not the already seen past, creates every situation in your present. The problem is that until now, everybody has taught us the opposite!”
These word really struck me. They made me think about (more…)
This week, thanks to one of my beautiful clients- Alisa, I will share with you a delicious and easy recipe, which will bring more variety to your regular boiled eggs! Here, I want to say big thank you to Alisa, for her hard work during the past year. She has made a tremendous progress in the gym, she has become leaner and more athletic and it has been a pleasure to coach her and eyewitness her journey to a healthier and fitter life!
I guess that the end of the world postponed for a little bit, so today it is time for my favorite reads of the week! The past week has been really busy, because besides my usual activities I had a couple exams, which explains the shorter list of favorite reads for this week! But don’t worry! I promise to catch up with the reading and the sharing of outstanding posts!
Be good during the holidays! Don’t forget why you worked so hard all year round! Don’t blow everything during the next two weeks Eat meat and veggies and treat yourself with some raw nuts! Meanwhile find time for the list of my favorite reads!
Today I have the honor to share with you an interview with Rachel Gilmore. In a world where everybody is being fake, pretending to be somebody else, Rachel is one of people, who dare to be different! She is the kind of person who dares to dream big, has the courage to follow her dreams and become great! Rachel is the living proof that limitations do not exist, as long as you believe in yourself, and keep the vision of your dream alive! No matter what I tell you about her, it would belittle her great personality and the accomplishments she has achieved! So I will let her do the talking…
People often claim they are eating healthy. The problem is their worng understanding about what healthy means. There are tons of information in the media about what is good food and what is bad food, but truth is much of it is wrong and misleading. Thus, people who try eating right, instead of improving their health only make it worse! When was the last time you bought low fat milk? Why did you buy it? Because it is healthy? Low fat products, high fiber foods and other products claiming to be high- and low- in something ARE NOT HEALTHY! There is one rule, that you should follow in order to make right food choices…” If man created it, don’t eat it!”. Buy real food- meat,eggs,vegetables,fruits, nuts and seeds!

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
