Sweet and healthy!

There’s a lot going on in my life at the moment. Plenty to do and to think about…

We all have cravings. I love chocolate and berries and… oh well, let’s be honest I love sweets! I could eat everything maybe except liquorice (sic!) But from yogurts to all sorts of puddings,  chocolates to icecreams…

That doesn’t really go well with healthy diet. But this one here does!

Greek yogurt

Unsalted pistachio nuts

Hazelnuts

Berries, I used frozen mix of berries

Dark chocolate

Irish marmalade (thanks Jason;)

Girl, do the squats!

Alright,  I’m not skinny – but that’s not my goal. While losing weight I wanted to keep my bum. That’s pretty much it, I want to fit and healthy instead of skinny and with a hanging ass;)

I still have a long way to go but hey, them squots helped!

My tips for ‘perfect bum and legs’

– eat healthy fats/oils
– drink green tea
– eat meat at least 3 times a week
– drink water, I drink around 6 liters of water a day
– workout
– learn to love interval training
– eat small portions but often
– plan
– squats, squats, squats!
