Bună dragilor!

Astăzi am pentru voi un articol puţin mai diferit decât cu ceea ce v-am obişnuit până acum. Acest articol nu o să aibă ca temă fitness-ul, reţete sănătoase sau tipsuri despre cum să avem o viaţă mai echilibrată şi sănătoasă.  Astăzi veţi avea ocazia să mă cunoaşteţi puțin mai bine 🙂

Acesta este primul meu articol pentru cei de la Orkesta în colaborare cu WarchShop.ro, care au o simplă întrebare şi anume „Ce ai face dacă ziua ar avea 48 de ore”…. interesant, nu?

Nu am stat prea mult pe gânduri, deoarece eu chiar am o problema a „time managementului”, nu pot să îmi împart timpul în aşa fel încât să pot să fac tot ceea ce îmi propun.

Haideţi să vă spun ce aş face eu cu acele extra 24 de ore într-o zi.

  1. În primul rând aş putea să lucrez mai mult. Mulți stiţi deja că sunt antrenor personal, ador profesia mea, iar prin munca mea aş putea ajuta mai multe persoane dacă aș avea mai mult timp, deci, toată lumea ar avea de câştigat 🙂
  2. Aş avea timp să citesc mai mult. Cititul e tot timpul pe ultimul loc în zilele noastre, cel puţin la mine, deoarece tot timpul este altceva de făcut, ceea ce pe moment e mai important. Asta include să fac un plan de antrenament pentru un client, să merg la o întâlnire de afaceri, să mă plimb cu căţelul, să gătesc şi aşa mai departe. Așadar, niște timp pentru citit ar prinde foarte bine. Citit o carte, evident, nu articole pe internet sau Cosmopolitan 🙂
  3. Aş petrece mai mult timp cu persoanele dragi mie. Niciodată nu am suficient de mult timp de stat la poveşti,  de schimb de idei, împărtășit de experiențe.
  4. Aş dori să am mai mult timp pentru gătit, să încerc reţete noi și delicioase la care deseori mă gândesc, dar nu am niciodată timp să le fac. Ador să gătesc, aş putea să stau în bucătărie câteva ore bune în fiecare zi. 🙂
  5. Mi-aş dori să petrec mai mult timp cu căţelul meu,Jimmy, care are 14 anişori şi nu ştiu cât îl voi mai avea aprope. Mai mult timp ar însemna să mă ocup doar de el, sa-l piaptăn, să ne jucăm, să ne plimbăm, să-l duc la vânătoare de iepuri 🙂
  6. Aș dedica acele ore în plus pentru relaxare, aş încerca o oră de meditaţie, ora în care să nu mă gândesc că trebuie să mă grăbesc la dentist, la ora de aerobic, la masă, la întâlnire…etc. Să-mi eliberez mintea complet și să elimin orice stres cotidian.
  7. Dacă fiecare zi ar avea 48 de ore, cu siguranţă aş scrie articole zilnic, pentru că am foarte multe idei pe care vreau să le  împărtăşesc cu voi, dar timpul… e mereu o problemă. De fapt, lipsa lui!

Aş mai putea enumera multe multe lucruri pe care le-aș face dacă ni s-ar dubla timpul: aş face mai multe videoclipuri cu exerciţii, aş încerca un sport nou, aş viziona toate filmele noi care apar la cinema (evident, cele interesante) aş zbura pâna în Roma şi m-aş întoarce in aceeaşi zi 🙂 sau aş sta la plajă câteva ore bune… dacă ar fi o plajă la Cluj 🙂

1382374625Concluzia este faptul că fiecare persoană își face timp pentru ceea ce e cu adevărat important în viaţa sa. E vorba de a-ți stabili niște priorităţi.  E foarte uşor să ne găsim scuze  ca:  nu am timp să merg la sală, nu te-am sunat pentru că nu am avut timp, nu mă îngrijesc pentru că nu am bani, etc.  Dacă îți dorești cu adevărat să faci ceva, cu siguranță poți găsi timp pentru acel ceva. Timpul nostru este proiectul nostru, ne aparţine. Trebuie să preţuim acele 24 de ore pe care le avem în aşa fel încât, atunci când  mergem la culcare să ne simţim mulţumite si împăcate cu noi că am făcut tot ce am putut în acea zi! Și pentru că timpul se măsoară în ore şi minute, un ceas care să ne reflecte personalitatea este absolut necesar.  În acest sens, eu aş alege acest superb ceas Fossil.

Hello my dears!

Today I’m going to post a different kind of article, something different with what you are used to read on my blog. This article will not include fitness, healthy recipes or healthy lifestyle tips! Today you have the opportunity to know me just a little bit better 🙂

In collaboration with watchshop.ro , who asked me to write down, what would I do if the  day had 48 hours instead of 24, interesting question right?

I did not have to think too much on this subject, because I’m having a really hard time with managing my time. I never have time to do all the things I propose to do in that day.

So let’s see my list, what would I do with those extra 24 hours a day 

  1. First of all I would like to work more. As most of you know, I’m a personal trainer, I love my job, so working more I could help more people to get in shape and have a healthy lifestyle. This would be the best for everybody right? 🙂
  2. I would like to read more. Nowadays people put reading on the last place, other things are always more important. In that moment I feel it’s more important to make a diet plan or an exercise plan for a client, to cook, to go out with the dog etc.  So some extra hours for a relaxing reading would be very welcome.
  3. I would like to spend more time with my loved ones. I feel like I never spend enough time with them, a little more storytelling, just talk about our daily experiences and thoughts would be so good.
  4. I would like to have more time to cook. To try out new healthy and delicious recipes what I have in mind, but I never find the time to actually make them. I really adore cooking, so some more hours in the kitchen would be very nice!
  5. I would like to spend more time with my dog, which is now 14 years old, and I can’t know how much time he will be around. I would like to dedicate much more time just to him, to brush him, to actually play with him, to take him for a long walk or rabbit hunting 🙂
  6. Those extra hours in plus I could use for a good relaxation. I would like to try a real and intense mediation, to clear my mind, and for that one hour not to think about my appointment to the dentist, my clients, my work, meetings… To free my mind completely and release the stress.
  7. If every day would have 48 hours, for sure I would write an article every day, because I have so many ideas to share with you, but time is always a problem….I mean having the time 🙂

I could tell you more about what I would do if we had that extra 24 hours…but I would be dreaming too much I think. I would do much more fitness videos, I would try out a new sport, I would watch all the new good movies from the cinema, I would fly to Rome and back in the same day, I would go sunbathing on the beach…..If Cluj (my home town) would have a beach  🙂

270612The conclusion is that every person makes time for what is really important for them. It’s about priorities! It is very easy to find excuses like: I can’t find the time to go to the gym, I don’t have time to call you, because I’m busy, I can’t go to the hairstylist because I don’t have the money and the list could go on and on. If you really want something you will find the time for it. Our time is our project. We have to cherish those 24 hours we have, and in the night when we go in our bed to feel accomplished and proud that we gave our best to do everything we proposed.

Because time is measured in minutes and hours, a beautiful watch that reflects our personality is a must. In this case I chose this stylish Fossil watch. What would you chose from here watchshop.ro

Quick full body workout

Hey everyone!

Here is my new workout video. This workout is short, but super effective. It works your whole body, speeds up your metabolism, speeds up your heart rate and at the end of it, you will feel amazing!

You can do this workout at home, at the gym, in the park even in your hotel room, does not require any kind of equipment, it contains only body weight exercises.

In this video I am doing only one set of every exercise, but you have do 2 sets of them or repeat the circuit 2 or 3 times 🙂

Try to keep a good form while doing the exercises and let’s get started! Have a nice day guys!  😉

Unhealthy “health” foods

ImageThese particular foods can cause more harm in your fat loss goals than good.

The first of these is orange juice. People usually start their day with orange juice thinking it is good for them. The orange juice you buy from the market is very processed, pasteurized, and very denatured, and it is not necessarily natural. It has way too much sugar in it, and that’s going to raise your insulin level really high, and as you know insulin is a fat storing hormone. If you actually eat a hole orange is way better!

The second one on my black list is flavoured yoghurt.

Flavoured yoghurts are full of sugar, corn syrup, food colouring, artificial flavours  If everybody would replace the flavoured yoghurt with plain greek yoghurt they could loose 10 pounds in a month. Make your own flavoured yoghurt with plain greek yoghurt adding real fruit.

The third ”health” food is sugar free products.

There are lots of sugar free products that people buy and they think it’s healthy. Sugar free puddings, sugar free candy, sugar free crackers, sugar free biscuits and so on. It is important to look at the ingredients list and see with what kind of ingredient is the sugar replaced. 90% of the time is maltitol, sucralose, sorbitol and aspartame. People should know that maltitol spikes the blood sugar even quicker and higher than sugar. Maltitol also causes intestinal problems and  bloating. Sucralose can reduce your natural gut flora; it can kill the good bacteria in your gut. That can cause problems like acnes.  If you crave candy, try eating raw cocoa beans. If you crave sweets you can eat dry fruits, like dates, figs or dried apricots.

The fourth on the list is whole wheat.

People should not eat anything that has in it wheat, whole wheat, that means cereal, pasta, bread anything that has in it wheat! Everything has wheat in it is processed, like cereals, bread, pasta. Usually are filled with junk like artificial sweeteners, flavours  colours  preservatives. The whole wheat bread is actually died brown. Things like cereals   are sweetened with all kinds of sugars, artificial flavours and addictive chemicals. Other reason is that wheat disrupts digestion. When you eat wheat it can cause constipation, bloating. When you eat wheat it can de-gradate the little villi in your small intestine. The little villi are responsible to absorb nutrients. When you eat wheat it covers and shortens the villi. The other thing about wheat is that it’s a very addictive food; it increases your hunger and craving for it. When you stop eating bread or crackers or cereal you feel you are hungry for it all the time, it is because you are addicted to it. This happens because the gluten polypeptides cross the blood ring barrier, and they actually acting in your brain like opioid is.

The fifth unhealthy “health’ food is diet soda

Diet coke is obviously thought of as a diet food, it has the word diet in it. Diet sodas are the worst; we can call them chemical soups. When you drink these sodas, you have chemicals in your body; your liver has to detoxify them. Your liver plays also an important role in your metabolism. When your liver is overloaded with chemicals like diet coke and all the other stuff throughout the day, it’s too much, it can’t function well. It is bad for your body!

The sixth “health” food is margarine

People think it is healthy because of marketing. Is being advertised as “better than butter” The sad truth is that even low quality butter is healthier than any margarine. Margarine is very high in trans fatty acids, which are pure poison for your heart. Trans fats are man made hydrogenated oils. Trans fats are made by adding hydrogen to vegetable oil. The process involves using harsh chemical solvents, high heat, pressure and metal catalyst. Which are than deodorized and bleached. Once consumed, trans fats are very inflammatory inside your body. Also margarine increases your total cholesterol and decreases your  immune response. The butter can be a healthier version for you, if you consume in small amounts.

The next one is vitamin water.

First of all it is loaded with synthetic vitamins, these vitamins are not coming from the nature, they come from laboratories. Our body does not know what to do with a vitamin that came out of a laboratory. Near these vitamins, contain usually around 13 grams of sugar per serving; we know that for every 4 grams of sugar it’s one tea spoon. Consider that 3 tea spoons of sugar is enough to suppress your immune system for 4 to 6 hours.

The last but not least are the fitness/energy bars

Usually the number one ingredient is corn syrup, after that comes the partial hydrogenated vegetable oil, soy protein oils, artificial flavours and colours. So this is definitely not a health food either.

We all should avoid all these foods and replace them with fruits, vegetables and nuts. If you get rid of those foods, your body will respond properly by burning fat for energy and giving you a healthy lean body.

Be aware!!!
