Poledance

Today we decided to try out a poledance class. It was my first time so I had no idea what to expect. At first when we arrived the studio we were welcomed with a great atmosphere and service from the staff. The interior was very girly and princessy, which I loved! It for sure gave me the right type of mood before the class started. It was a lot of stretching, some strength excercises and some practice with the pole. Note that we’re both beginners here, so I can’t brag about any advanced tricks or skillsets. BUT it was fun! I loved it and I will definitely do more poledancing as soon as possible!

After our class we decided to end the night with some refreshments from Starbucks. I chose green tea latte with almond milk (instead of dairy) and Maddie went for iced tea with berries. 


If you haven’t tasted the green tea latte yet, your missing out!! It was amazing!

Legday 

Hola amigos!

Me and my gym partner Kanutte had the best (or should I say worst?) legday ever tonight! We went all in with supersets of different glute and hamstring excercises and trained abs inbetween the sets. This partnership will be the death of me, I’m telling you. 


^ little Kanutte under all those weights doing hip-thrusts. She’s hella strong.

After our workout it was time for a big dinner filled with protein.


Beans, chickpeas, lentils, baby carrots, and an apple. 

Now I’m off to bed letting my muscles rest, before a legendary back-attack tomorrow. 

Sweet dreams. ❤

Good morning!

As you all know, I prefer to start my day by spending an hour or two at the gym. Today is not an exception! Legday’s on the menu and I can’t wait to dig in. 


Das my bessfren^


Set the standard for today and work your ass off at the gym. I doubt you’ll regret it. 

Peace. ❤

Yasss

Finally, I can say that I am officially back on track when it comes to both excercise and school. I’ve had the best workout in a long time today, and my motivation is on top! Still, I have two essay’s and one presentation to finish before monday, but It’ll be alright. 


Anywhoo, I want your contributions on what you want me to post more about. More about veganism? Sustainability? outfits? Skin-care routine? Hair care? Anything else? Let me know!


Have a nice day, everyone!<3

This weeks…

What am I grateful for?

The intelligent, strong women I am so lucky to call my friends. They’re truly gorgeous inside out, and we share so much of the same point of views. I can’t believe I found them. Another person I’m specially grateful for this week is my roomate Monica, she’s  as kind as a person can be.

Ps: Shoutout to her for waking me up multiple times this past week. I am the heaviest sleeper ever, so she deserves all the credz she can get! haha.

What made me smile?

This weeks goals?

I was sick this week, therefore, I didn’t really set any high goals. This is what I wrote down:

  • Breathe
  • Survive

As you can tell, I made it. heh

This weeks best workout?

It has to be the one I did sunday morning. I decided to really kick it, due to my absence for the past couple of days. I ended up doing one hour of running and a full body workout afterwards.

This weeks song?

My love for beyonce’s new album “Lemonade” cannot be expressed into words. This song has been on repeat constantly, ever since it was released.

Good night everyone. ❤

Sustainable Lifestyle (part two)

The three pillars of sustainability:

Economical development

This is the issue that proves the most problematic as most people disagree on political ideology what is and is not economically sound, and how it will affect businesses and by extension, jobs and employability. Economic development is about giving people what they want without compromising quality of life, especially in the developing world, and reducing the financial burden of doing what’s right.

Social development

This pillar contains first of all; awareness of and legislation protection of the health of people from pollution and other harmful activities of business and other organisations. Secondly, the importance of maintaining access to basic resources without compromising the quality of life. Sustainable housing  and how we can better build the homes we live in from sustainable material, is also a hot topic today. The final element is education – encouraging people to participate in environmental sustainability and teaching them about the effects of environmental protection as well as warning of the dangers if we cannot achieve our goals

Environmental protection

The tremendous harm we do to our environment today is the primary concern for the future of humanity. Environmental protection defines how we should study and protect our ecosystems, air quality, integrity and sustainability of our resources and focusing on the elements that stresses our environment. In addition,it concerns how technology will drive our greener future; the EPA recognized that developing technology is key to this sustainability, and protecting the environment of the future from potential damage that technological advances could potentially bring

The primary goals of having a sustainable lifestyle.

  • End poverty and hunger
  • Better our standards of education and healthcare.
  • Sustainability to include health of our land, air and sea.
  • Tackling the effects of climate change, pollution, and other environmental factors that harms people’s health, lives, and livelihood.

I could have written so much more about this subject, but I decide to end it here. I’ll get back to it on a later occasion, I don’t want to overflow you with too much text and information at once.

Just some quick facts to end it with.

The main source of environmental harm

The meat industry/ animal agriculture – THE ONE INDUSTRY THAT HARMS OUR PLANET MORE THAN ANY OTHER.

  • A source of 51% of all greenhouse gasses.
  • A meatbased diet requires 18 times more land than a plantbased diet.
  • Responsible for 65% of the all human caused nitrous oxide emissions (a greenhouse gas with 296 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide).
  • Number 1 cause of rainforest destruction.
  • Responsible for 91% of the Amazon rainforest destruction.

Everyday ONE vegan saves:

  • 1100 gallons of water
  • 45 pounds of grain
  • 30 sq. ft. of forest land
  • 20lbs CO2 equivalent
  • 1 animals life
  • A vegan diet also cut our carbon footprint by 50%.

Being a superhero has never been easier. Go vegan.

Puh! that’s it for sustainability today.

Have an awesome day!

8 Reasons to smile

  1. Bernie Sanders is coming out with a new book soon. You bet I’ll buy it the very moment it’s out!

 

2. Newsflash bitches! It actually exists vegan bacon. So for all of you saying “you can’t go vegan because of bacon” (?!!!?), you can no longer use that as an excuse. Bye Felicia.

3. Somewhere in the world, this bookstore exists, I think it’s in Greece? If you know, please tell me! Regardless, I’ll find it, and I’ll use all my money when I get there.

4. Always remember; age is just a number! Time is an illusion, your spirit decides how old you are.

5. You can never be fully educated, there is always more to learn, read and be curious about. Be interested, instead of trying to play interesting. 😉

6. Let me introduce you to the longboardstroller, everyone. I repeat, longboardstroller.

longboard-wagon

When I become a parent, I swear, that kid is gonna go through so much shit like this. hahaha. I ain’t even sorry.

7. The Seabin Project.

Australian surfers turned entrepreneurs Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski are the founders of the Seabin Project. This simple little gadget is poised to make a big difference in oceans across the world. Designed to be set up in marinas and ports, the floating rubbish bin is powered by an on-shore water pump, filtering through water and collecting the garbage as it accumulates within the system. Low maintenance and low cost, the rubbish bin is highly effective and engineered to run all day, every day, slowly but surely cleaning our oceans.

8. There’s always coming a new day tomorrow. No matter how hard this day may feel, you can go to bed, wake up after a good night of sleep, eat a healthy brekfast and get a new chance to make that day better.

I hope this post made you feel better!

Good night. ❤
