How was your week? Mine is wonderful! The more time goes by, the more I learn to live out of the frame of daily routine and I learn to accept the challenges that every DIFFERENT day offers me. During the last couple months, I’ve gathered more experiences, than during the last couple years. Life becomes really “colorful”, once you have the courage to discover it and explore it and not just “securely” put up with it.
Try it yourself! You will find out how great it is to get out of your daily schedule. Actually, you will realize that you are doing a bunch of things and you are even more productive. Initially it is hard to deal with the guilt, that you are doing what you want and not just what you “should”, but then everything comes perfectly.

1.You will start liking your body and the negative thoughts, that used to overtake your mind will disappear. What are you gonna do with all this leisure time, that you will have left, when you do not need to check yourself in the mirror, every 30 minutes, being disgusted of your cellulite, love handles and out of shape body?
2.You will find it so much easier to find new clothes, because an athletic body, makes every piece of cloth stunning. You will stop wasting your time, running around the mall, trying on clothes and you will avoid the bad mood, which accompanies trying on new clothes and the dissatisfaction of your reflection in the mirror.
3.You will be able to do your favorite housework activities. Lifting a box from the ground, won’t curse you to hurt your lower back and you won’t be dying in pain for the next month or so.
4.You will start approaching food, not as your enemy, but as your friend. Are you crazy? Now your relatives will have to cook double portions, so you can be fed!
5.You will be able to sit around the table and you won’t just stare the steaks. Now you will be able to eat them, because when you train, your body will know how to use the food and it will actually need it. You won’t be forced to get satiety, with eating just the garnish. You will be able to eat from the main dish, without feeling any guilt!
6.Your health status will dramatically improve and with every workout and with every healthy meal, you will get further from osteoporosis and diseases. Feel guilty- you will rob the health care system, when you stop investing in it by buying tons of pills and visiting the doctor every week.
7.With every healthy meal and with every workout, your muscles and your healthy body, will eat cellulite and they will make your skin smoother. You will be proud by the way your legs look! Shame on you! Who is gonna watch the anti- cellulite cream’s commercials and then give money for them? (more…)
“Always turn your head to the sum- this way all the shadows will be left behind you.”- Walt Witman
I once again couldn’t wait for the morning. My body needed sleep and rest, but my soul was restlessly revolting. It was poking me to wake up and meet the new day- in the company of silence. There is something magical about the hours before the sunrise. It seems as if nature takes a deep breath, because it senses the coming of something wonderful, indescribable. Something that could not be stuffed into words and doesn’t have definition. Something, which is beyond the visible, but gets so deep and touches all your senses. Seems as if nature becomes silent, in the eager anticipation of the first morning rays. A light, which silently and tenderly, sneaks through the windows and makes its way through the thickest woods. A light, which sneaks in the room and tenderly fondles my tired body.
The whole nature is being silent, in anticipation for the moment when darkness will say goodbye to silence and will yield its place to the new day- the new beginning.
I love silence. Seems as if there is nothing in it, and in reality this “nothing” is my everything. One of my favorite qualities of silence is its emptiness… and the freedom to fill it with whatever I feel like. And today, I want to fill it with myself.
Silence gives me space to breath into life, what is otherwise left neglected. It gives me the opportunity to give life, to all the things, which bring meaning to our existence, but the things that are patiently waiting behind the door of our fast paced day and never dare to ring the bell- scared that there is nobody to hear them. Scared that the meaning is (more…)
How is your week? Mine is great and I am really content with my workouts and the way I feel. It is unique, when you get to feel every little movement, which your body performs and when you are able to feel your muscles activating properly. If you are still hesitating, about training, do not postpone it anymore! Make physical activity your primary need and you won’t be sorry! The human body is meant to move, not to be sedentary.
Eat good, quality food. Take more time for your health, because it is the base of each dream and each endeavor. If we have health, we can achieve everything! Take care of your health, instead of wasting it and then trying to return it back.
Have a wonderful weekend and find some time for my favorite reads.
We whine that life passes by us, we feel like victims, like people robbed by opportunities and pleasure. We feel scarcity in a world, which is full of abundance. Do you really think that life leaves us at the sidelines? Or maybe, we are too blind; too overburdened by the frame, in which we are trying to stuff the meaning?
We give definition to every emotion, every feeling and experience and when “the word order is changed”, when “a comma or a dot is missing”, we carelessly ignore what’s going on. We deny the opportunity, just because on the surface, it doesn’t fir the “right”definition.
We work with absolute values, in a world, which is a personification of relativity.
What do the conditions of life really express? We blame others, we blame our bad luck, but how often do we stop to rush through life and take a short glimpse, a closer look at it? How often do we stop, in order to observe how life happens, while we are running through the present, running out of breath toward a future which is just an illusion?
What do the conditions of life really express? Probably clothes, carefully and methodically sewed by us… clothes, which are in direct correspondence with the model of thoughts, which we are hiding deep inside our subconscious.
The outer conditions, actually our whole life, the way we experience it, is just a parade of what we are nurturing in our minds.
We are absorbed in the gale of our own emotions. We are slaves to our feelings and we feel helpless under their control. And after all, what are the feelings? Aren’t they just our predominant attitude towards life? Aren’t your feelings towards me, towards the person besides you; the feeling towards a particular situation or job, just a (more…)
I think that one of the reasons we do not achieve our goals, is hidden in the fact that we rarely get to the essence of things. Usually we focus on the superficial, which brings us short term results and it just masks action and progress, which are cursed to a standstill and disappointment.
This is completely true for workouts and nutrition. In the past I used to desperately search for diets, schemes and methods, which could help me achieve the desired look and body. Each diet or new training program, was accompanied by a huge dose of enthusiasm, which grew into a confusion and dissatisfaction. As everything new, every different diet, which we try or every new training program, will initially show some progress; initially it will help us feel different. Usually the effect will last long enough, so we can get convinced that we found the key to our goals. Somewhere along the path, we start doubting- the results don’t show; we make huge efforts and we can’t understand what is going on.
After everything which I’ve done- in the gym, in the kitchen and in life, I got to the conclusion, that there isn’t a “recipe”, which contains all the desired actions, which guarantee us the results we long for.
I got to the conclusion that the only way to achieve your goals, no matter if we are talking about workouts or nutrition, or for life as a whole, having a philosophy, a concept about life is what matters. Having a philosophy, which is the base of every choice you make and every action you take.
Personally, I am a fan of minimalism. I think that a person, even if he is able to have much, should be skilled enough to satisfy with less. We should be able to explore life in its depths and take it down to its smallest building particles. Then, we should use them, so we can build what we are aiming for.
The path to each goal is just one- simplicity! Simplicity is not equal to easy. Simplicity is expressed in the ability to keep sight on what is really significant, instead of losing it in the sea of unduly items, actions and so forth.
Last week I had a challenge for you. I love the recipes you send me and the passion you show in giving your best to lead a healthier lifestyle. That’s why I decided to start something new- to introduce the opportunity for a guest post or in other words, to give you an opportunity to share your experience. We will start with the Culinary Column.Here you can read more. The first recipe, I received is from Malina Lazarova- these delicious vegetable pancakes with guacamole. The initial source of the recipe is Nadia Petrova from Nature Insider.

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!
