And running I did!

Yesterday morning I managed to do a tiny morning run. It’s not much, but hey! It’s a start 🙂

Skiing makes me wanna go Running!


Just came back from a wonderful skiing holiday in Konigsleiten, Austria (of which you’ll see some pics below), which made me realize once more how good sports make me feel. Breathing in the cold mountain air makes me feel so healthy I wanna take out my running shoes and go for a run.

Which is exactly what I will do tomorrow. Dust off those shoes and go for a run in the cold (Amsterdam is freezing and snowy at the moment). Running has many health benefits, both physical and mental. Running reduces the risk of many diseases like coronary heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. On top of that it increases your mental toughness, if which you can never have enough.

So shoes…get ready!

2013 resolution: superfoods

Image

new year’s resolution for 2013: live healthier.

In my case this has nothing to do with losing weight, just with the fact that I want to appreciate my body more, and feed it with what it needs and what is good for her.

That means less fat, less alcohol (!!), less snacks.

But it’s not only less, it’s also more fruit (smoothies yum!), and more superfoods.

Superfoods are foods with a high nutrient content, and low on negative properties. Superfoods contain among others antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, and they help you to detox your body. Examples of

superfoods are blueberries, broccoli, kiwis and pumpkin. Superfoods are perfect to start a healthy living.

Amsterdam has two superfood stores, that also sells lots of superfood seeds and grains, next to the fresh superfood fruit and veggies. Quinoa, for example, is one of these superfood grains.

To support my resolution, and to make sure I keep it, I also started with a home study on healthy food.

I will keep you posted in the future on my healthy living quest. I hope I can inspire you to do the same!

Enjoy, xo Rosie
