Because Friday the 14. Of February was Valentine’s Day, it would not be appropriate to write about healthy food and fitness.
Yes, I did go to the fitness club, but then my fiancé took me to a gorgeous restaurant in Ljubljana, which also happens to be one of the best in our country. I would love to share some pictures of the food, but I am afraid that we did not have the time or the patience to take them. We were hungry, and the food was magnificent! Maybe not the healthiest, but on some days – who cares!? What’s the point of being fit and hot if you don’t afford yourself some decadence from time to time? It is all about the balance. Everywhere, not just with food. Some authors even claim that putting crap into your body, BUT ONLY OCCASIONALY, actually boosts one’s metabolism. Go figure… what a nice excuse. J
Bottom-line is that we had an amazing evening and who wants to count calories on a beautiful evening.

As far as fitness is concerned, I would love to put some pictures before/after on my blog, but I am still a bit unsure because my belly in not looking the best – I have a big psoriasis rash on it.

About my wedding planning ...

Planning wedding is quite a lot of work. I thought it would be easier. Because we will have a small wedding with our relatives and closes friends I thought that everything will be sorted out very quickly. I guess I was wrong.
Until now we have found and booked the restaurant. Because we both love good food and wine we made sure that we don’t have to worry at least about that. Testing day was great, and some connoisseurs even say, that should there ever be a Michelin guide for Slovenia, this restaurant is one of the first in line for the stars. Jummy!!
I don’t wish to spend a huge amount of money for my wedding dress, so I was thinking of ordering it from China. Have any of you got any experience with Chinese custom made dresses?

I will make invitations myself. I think it is nice to put something personal in it. I found a few nice and chick designs but I am still not decided what to do.
Did you make the wedding invitations yourself? Where did you find ideas?

Honeymoon ...

We would love to go to Thailand.  Because we have never been everywhere outside Europe we think it’s time. For now we found that the plane tickets are quite expensive and that the country is very pleasant and a lot different from Europe.
Have you ever been to Thailand? What do you think is the must see/must do there?

About my dog..

Do you remember my little puppy post back from October? The little monster is now almost grown up, but still small. She has such an amazing and naughty character. A typical bulljack.

Love, P.

A week or two ago, my boyfriend started reading The 4-Hour Body by Tim Ferris. He was so into this book, he constantly keeped me updated with tips from the book. And because I am on the market for good tips to get fit and healthy I incorporate a few of them to my everyday life. Also, I try to not do the most obvious mistakes. Like eating chocolate and carbs in general.
  • I often start my day with grapefruit juice.
  • I eat breakfast every day. And I mean every day.
  • I am NOT eating chocolate, sweets, deserts,… practically anything that contains sugar.
  • I canceled processed food.
  • I am trying to put cinnamon in my green tea sometimes.
  • I cook A LOT.                                                 
  • I try and cook every day something new healthy.I went from hating avocado to loving it.

So, because I go to the gym three times a week (even though it’s not compliant with Tim Ferris’ methods), you can expect my “Get Fit Diary” every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.

I joined a fitness club in October and only did cardio for three months. Then I added just a little bit of weight lifting and I love the progress that I’m making.
Now I do 10 to 15 min to warm up, then I proceed with weight lifting for 45 to 60 min with light weights and finish with 10 to 15 min running on a treadmill. I am doing this for one month and a half now and the results are showing quite well. I alternate chest/back exercises and work my legs every time, because it is important to have strong big muscles, the bigger they are, the more fat they will help burn, even on idle.

Yesterday was Wednesday so I did 10 min cardio – running. Then I did 60 leg raises on a “leg-raising rack”. Then I did my back routine. Next were four series of 25 kettlebell swings.”Kettlebelling” surprised me, because it looks easy, but is actually quite intense. This exercise is also suggested in The 4-Hour Body as one of the best if not THE best for shaping a woman’s body.


Yesterday we had chicken and my version of guacamole that was actually a salad.


Yesterday I had a weird and strong craving for fried chicken. So instead of abandoning the idea as a mother of all bad ideas when trying to get in shape, I went and did it properly and with as few sinful ingredients as possible.

  • Get a nice chicken fillet.
  • Cut it in steaks, bites, chunks, whatever you like best.
  • Dip the chicken in plain yogurt and forget it for 4 or 5 hours.
  • Take the chicken out of the yogurt and season it with salt and paper (no need to take all yogurt off, just take the meat out and leave it “wet”).
  • Dip the meat in breadcrumbs and put it in a nicely hot pan on some good olive oil. Notice how I wrote put it ON, not into!! We’re not frying here! Frying sounds like something we used to do. 

Avocado salad

  • Cut avocado, tomato and onion to small pieces.
  • Season everything with salt, paper, a little bit of dried garlic.
  • Pour on some yogurt
  • Mix
  • Enjoy.

Wow, I didn’t even realize how simple this recipe is until I wrote it down. A really tasty one, also.

Love, P.

Hello, lovely people, long time no see:)
As those of you might have noticed, I kind of disappeared some time around October. I wouldn't exactly say I had nothing to write about, I was just setting my priorities straight. Plus, I got engaged.:)

One of my new year's resolutions of 2013 was to start blogging. I managed to post my first post somewhere around the end of the summer and then it took me three months to put everything on pause. This year’s resolution is to re-start my blogging. As you can see it only took a month to move my ass this time. Woohoo:D

I just want to share some random stuff with you today.
So far, 2014 seems like it will be “the big year” for me because I’m getting married in the end of the summer. But until then, some 'very important' things have to be done.  And it just happen to be, that they are blogging-friendly and should give me a lot of topics to write about.
As almost every girl knows, a wedding is the ultimate look good/feel good day, so I thought I might as well embrace this stressful year to kick myself in the (sometimes lazy) behind and get going!
So far, I joined the fitness club and  got myself in a much better shape already, started cooking and eating better and got myself completely off alcohol. So far, so good. J

So this blog (at least until september) is now officially dedicated to general fitness, good looks, good (and healthy) food, and of course wedding planning with saving advice.

What do you think about the master plan?

Love, P.
