I’ve always been a huge fan of quotes. I used to sit for hours and simply read different quotes on diverse websites. Also, ever since I started reading more books (read more about this interesting story here), I began building my own quote collection. I think it’s just nice to sometimes sit down and have a look at the list of the books you’ve read and read the quotes you’ve found inspiring for some reason. This year, I already made it to read about 35 books in total. I didn’t like them all, but 25 of them were really great. I’ve highlighted many quotes from each one of them and today I’m sharing my favorites. I´ll also include a short story about why I liked them. 🙂
I know we all live in a very busy world and can’t help ourselves but think we don’t have any spare time for our hobbies like reading, playing music or whatever each one of us enjoys doing once we “find some time”. I kept promising myself I would read more once I do “this” and once I finish “that”. However, at some point, I actually confronted myself with my own lies and had to admit how often I was indeed lying I didn’t have the time. Humans are champions in finding lots of excuses and there are always countless to-dos on our list. So, how can we find the time for our hobbies??? Well, we either learn to find some time to do those things we enjoy so much or we get old by wishing we had the time to do so. Today, I would love to share my story with you and help you find that spare time for your hobbies like reading more books. Furthermore, I’m sharing the list of my favorite books I’ve read this year and I can assure you I really loved/enjoyed all of them.
Ever since I’ve started working out, somehow I’ve mostly focused on my glutes. I just wanted to build that booty (which I didn’t have at that time :D) and I started doing butt-lifting exercises like crazy :D. Literally every other day! I’ve been pretty much neglecting other muscle groups (especially on the arms), which changed in the meanwhile and for quite some time now I’ve been diligently doing exercises for the whole body 😀
However, the leg day and especially the glute workout is still my favorite workout. I’ve tried dozens of exercises, changed the workout plans, but over time I’ve developed a certain love for special exercises which have turned out to be the most effective for me and today I want to share them with you. Now here are my top 5 butt-shaping exercises you must include into your workout if you want to build that booty!!!
It’s been a while since I shared some random facts about me on our blog. I love to read that kind of articles about others, so I decided to put some facts about me together, so you can get to know me a bit more and maybe you could recognize yourself in some of the facts. Let’s get started:
Recently I’ve decided to change my focus on Instagram and now I’m sharing my workout routine more often with you. Ever since then, I’m often being asked questions such as: How do you work out exactly? Which exercises do you prefer? How often do you work out? And much more… With the beginning of this year, I’ve got more active when it comes to fitness and I work out up to 6 times a week. I’ve become much more interested in this whole topic, I inform myself much about it and consult pros. With the help of some experts, at the beginning of April, I’ve finally got my workout plan, which I want to share with you today – the whole plan and all exercises :).
I stick to a 3-day split workout plan (also called push – pull – legs or PPL) with an extra cardio-day, but I will change the particular exercises every 12 weeks. Generally it is recommended to change (not the workout routine), but the single exercises every 9 – 12 weeks, because the muscles get used to the movements, which may lead to the problem that you can’t see any more progress after some time. The workout plan I’m sharing with you today is my plan for the period of 12 weeks (beginning with 1. April 2018).
So, if you want to know what is understood by a 3-day split and have an exact workout plan, then keep reading :).
The lemon-blueberry poundcake is one of my favorite cakes of all times – it is fluffy, fruity, not too sweet and on top of that ready in less than no time :). Some time ago I stopped using dairy when cooking at home, which was the reason why I hadn’t made this cake for quite some time. The original recipe included dairy products, however, a couple of days ago the cake came into my mind and I decided to try and change the recipe slightly. I tried to use some vegan substitutes and loved the result. That’s why I just have to share it with you guys!
