ALMOST THERE 

I am still recovering from the surgery but I must say: I am almost there :) I felt strong enough to start with some running and abs routine this week. On Thursday I was so happy I went for a run that I started too quick and in the end I got a stitch after the first 5 min! You know when you want something so badly even pain will not stop you? It was exactly my Thursday’s run. I wanted to continue with the exercise throughout Friday and the entire weekend but Friday evening turned out to be a very lazy time with a book, a nice green tea and a comfy blanket. Green tea – this is quite surprising as if you had asked me two weeks ago I was high on caffeine from God-knows-how-many-coffees-a-day. After the surgery, however, something changed and all I crave is a nice cuppa. I hope this continues!

Jeszcze do dzisiaj dochodze do siebie po ostatnim zabiegu ale musze przyznac juz jest duzo lepiej. Na tyle lepiej ze w czwartek poszlam pobiegac. Z tego szczescia zaczelam szybkim tempem I niestety po 5 minutach zlapala mnie kolka. Tak bardzo chcialam sie poroszac ze nawek kolka mi nie przeszkodzila. Chcialam kontynuowac z treningiem przez reszta tygodnia ale niestety stety piatkowy wieczor zakonczyl sie pod kocem z zielona herbata i ksiazka. Zielona herbata – troche zadziwiajace poniewaz gdybyscie mnie zapytali dwa tygodnie temu na pewno dobrej lekturze towarzyszyla by mi juz czwarta albo piata kawa. Teraz filizanka zielonej herbaty w zupelnosci wystarcza. Mam nadzieje ze to sie nie zmieni!

On Saturday morning, off I went for another run. This time I started quite slow and continued with the same pace almost during the whole run speeding up only during the last 10 minutes. Great slow pace run it was! Plus some more strength exercises: 200 squats, 160 side planks abs (love them!) 200 regular abs. I finished the weekend with one more run – this time only 25 min plus 40 jumping burpees, 160 side plank abs and 200 regular abs. I felt great throughout the weekend.

Sobotni poranek zaczal sie kolejnym biegiem. Z tymze tym razem zaczelam powolnym biegiem i tak tez przebieglam cala trase przyspieszaja przy koncowce. Powolny bieg ale czulam sie rewelacyjnie! Dodatkowo troche cwiczen wzmacniajacych: 200 squats, 160 brzuchow w pozycji plank bokiem, 200 brzuchow. Weekend zakonczylam 25 min biegiem oraz z 40 burpees z podskokami, 160 brzuchow w pozycji plank bokiem i 200 normalnych brzuchow. 

imageMy cousin’s wedding is coming soon so I had to do some shopping. I am in love with clothes from a Polish brand Taranko. The quality of their materials is exceptional and you can also order online. Little package but so much happiness :)

Slub mojej kuzynki zbliza sie z szybkoscia swiatla wiec trzeba bylo zaopatrzyc sie w odpowiednia kreacje. Juz od jakiegos czasu zakochana jestem w polskiej marce modowej Taranko wiec i tym razem nie moglo byc inaczej. Najwyzsza jakosc materialow przekonala mnie do Taranko od razu. Dodatkow mozna rowniez zlozyc zamowienie online. Mala paczka a tak cieszy :)

imageTalking about happiness, I am thrilled to share my life with someone who is a real partner to me. It is only 5 weeks until our weeding date and we are looking forward to having our family and friends all together dancing, singing and what not. Then off we go to our honeymoon. Guess where :)?

Wspominajac o szczesciu nie moge nie napomknac o Nim z ktorym ide przez zycie i ktory jest prawdziwym partnerem dla mnie. To prawdziwe szczescie. Za 5 tygodni nasz slub i juz nie mozemy sie doczekac tych tancow do bialego rana. I oczywiscie nie moze zabraknac miesiaca tydodnia miodowego. Zgadniecie gdzie sie wybieramy?

ON AND OFF

Hello World!!! I can easily say :) and this is because I have been sleeping for the past 4 days – night & day ; there was a little bit of work, barely any food and my cozy pillow – ohhhh…you know this place Utopia? ”Ohh crap, she is up” – I wonder how many will say or think that tomorrow ;) During my sleep breaks I definitely missed swimming and this breathtaking view. It may be another three weeks during which I will see no pool but hey it’s not forever, is it?

My Experience as Part Time Vegan – Guest Post by Johana Garcia

Ever since I came to England 5 years ago, I’d been fighting against my weight and working out had never been enough, finding very often myself starving in all sort of diets and always guilty about all I ate.

One day, someone introduced me to Veganism, the magic adventure that changed my life.  I have to admit I had no idea what I was about to go through and didn’t even know there was something more strict than being vegetarian.
