As you probably noticed on my Facebook page( where I often share Beti’s meals), I am totally addicted to Beti Dermendjieva’s meals. Last week I once again wished, that Beti is waiting for me for lunch, with this delicious omelet. I immediately asked her to share the recipe with me and now I can’t wait to share it with you. Try it and share your opinion.
One more great week has gone by! I hope that during the past couple days you’ve been challenging yourself to go out of your comfort zone and you managed to find out how much you are capable of achieving if you just dare to try. Today I will go to a camp, where I will have the chance to train with a junior basketball team. I can’t wait to go there. I have so many things I want to show and teach this kids. I wish that when I used to play basketball, somebody could tell me the things I know now, so I could keep myself injury free and be fit. So have a wonderful weekend. Eat clean and move more.
Meanwhile read my favorite reads for this week, while I am torturing the kids on the field!;)
IS:How did you get involved in fitness? Have you done any other sports before that?
Snejina Ivanova: I got involved in fitness, because of my boyfriend. We’ve been together for more than 3 years. He is a Republical champion in bodybuilding here in Bulgaria and he has been an athlete for his entire life. I’ve practiced box and swimming for a short time.
IS: Do you follow a nutrition plan? What doe sit include? (more…)
If you’ve already given a chance to the high fat- low carb(HFLC) eating and you are already noticing the positive results, this means that you are one huge step closer to a fitter and healthier YOU. There is still one mistake, that especially women who follow a HFLC diet make.. Tell you the truth, when I started eating like this, I also made the same mistake, which cost me a disruption in the balance, I had temporary achieved.
Well, it Is not just an exercise for the abs, but I needed to attract your attention in some way… 😉
I am not the kind of person who thinks, that workouts should be full of all kind of fancy moves, which should bring a variety. I look on my workout as a mean, to shape a strong, athletic body; to remove the imbalances and to feel healthier and better. For me it doesn’t matter if this means, doing the boring rehab exercises for my shoulders, every single time I am in the gym, or something of that sort. After all the gym is not a circus and you do not need to do hundreds of different exercises. Basic movements, their variations and some assistance movements are enough, in order to achieve your goals.
But I still love experimenting with core movements. I think that every trainee should make this a priority in his workouts. You can’t imagine how you could get rid of the unwanted pain, when you make your core stronger and when you strengthen your stabilizing muscles.
That’s why today I will share with you one of my favorite stabilizing movements, which (more…)
The other night, as usual I trained with clients until late in the evening. I left the gym late and even though I woke up at 6 a.m. and I was already tired… I felt happy. I was walking in the cold evening, and I felt endless satisfaction. And you know what? This is how all my evenings look like. This night was not an exception!
I thought about people, who claim that the world is full of bad, cruel people. I thought about those who claim that there are no moral and values left. And then I kind of felt sorry about them… I felt sorry, that we are all surrounded by the same things, but everybody has the freedom to focus on different aspects.
When people go to the park, some will focus on the trash on the ground, next to the trash can and then they will spend an hour, talking about it and the lack of true values in society. And other, will just go, pick up the trash and throw it in the basket… then spend an hour admiring the beauty of nature.
The same park… different eyes, which are observing it.
I once again thought that with our own imagination about the world and what’s happening in it, we are the once who attract our reality. I remembered a line from Percey Shelly’s poem, where it was said “the souls of (more…)
How was your week? Mine was wonderful, even though I had some unplanned obstacles, which didn’t manage to make my week bad! Every time when something like this happens, I keep repeating myself that when everything is over, it will at least make for a good story to laugh over in the future. Haven’t you noticed that more often than not, situations which might seem like an emergency today, always bring a smile and a good laughter, when everything is over?
That’s why I did not manage to read as much as I wanted, and I will share with you a shorter list, but the articles are worth your time!
Have a wonderful weekend and do not pay attention to the crazy weather. Take a walk and eat clean food!
Alisa Kovacheva: My name is Alisa Kovacheva and I am 23 years old.
IS: What do you do?
AK: I work in the IT sector, I work out with weights and I dance.
IS: Have you been involved in some kind of sports before you started working out with me and my machines?
AK: Yes. About 3 years climbing, a couple years of swimming and a little bit of volleyball, tennis and martial arts. I have never played professional sports. I worked out once or twice a week.
IS: When did you join my workouts?
AK: A year ago.
IS: How did you understand about my workouts and did you have some worries before you joined us?
AK: Gabriela Subashka was the connection between you and me, as well as your Facebook page. I needed about an year, before I finally decided that I want to work out and until I was brave enough to come. I was constantly reading everything you post and I was hesitating. Finally I made the decision and I’ve never looked back.
IS: What was on your mind, before and after the first workout? (more…)
How many pieces of fruit do you eat in a day? I read everywhere that fruits should be eaten in small quantities, but I just love them and if I don’t eat at least 3-4 apples a day ( at least one for a dessert), I just can’t go on without them. I wouldn’t trade apples even for chocolate. So what is your opinion and is there a point in following a low carb, high fat diet, if I keep in eating cheese and fruits?
When it comes to fruits, I hardly ever eat them. Sometimes during the summer I might eat some berries. Every now and then, I might eat one-two slices of apple or another kind of fruit, but I rarely feel like eating them. At the beginning when I started eating high-fat, low carb diet, I felt like eating fruits a lot more often… before I adapted to the diet! Since this happened I have absolutely no desire for carbs, but mainly for pork steaks and pork breasts! 😉 At the beginning it will be hard, but as the time goes by, you will automatically decrease the fruits. Back in the days, I couldn’t go without eating at least half a cake for dessert, after dinner, but nowadays I can not even imagine to feel like eating cake! My advice is to give a chance to low carb, high fat eating. You will see how with more consistency, there will come a time when your way of eating, won’t be dictated by your will and by the “knowledge of what you SHOULD” eat and how you SHOULD limit carbs, because you will just lose your desire to eat so much carbs and you will crave more fatty stuff.
Hello, Ines! I decided to try the high fat, low carb diet. I know that it will be extremely hard, because I am used to eating sweet stuff every day. I wanted to ask you for advice. Would you recommend me this way of eating and if you have some kind of tricks for tidbits like me? (more…)
Lately a lot of people have been asking me if I eat dairy products and if not, what is the reason behind my decision. Probably a lot of you are wondering why I haven’t written a post about dairy. I often know what you’d like to read, but I still do not write a post about it, because I need to decide what I’d like to share with you and what is just a useless information, which some of you will take too seriously and will risk losing the whole picture, focusing too much on the little fragments.

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!
