Dry January

Did a partial dry January – I say “partial” because we celebrated my boyfriend’s birthday in Douro Valley, where the uberly famous Porto Wine is produced, so I decided that weekend did not count for dry January, and I would keep it for a week longer once we got back. But despite this exception, dry…

What’s in my GYM Bag?

My gym bag is huge. For some reasons, my very first gym bag was bright pink, something that made me feel super girlish and I did not really tolerate, but given how not girlish I am when I train, I decided to keep it, until I found a bigger one at least. The current one…

Recipe: Blueberry Banana Bread

It has been ages since I last did this super good banana bread… I was still living in my studio in Lisbon and life was very different. But despite the usual saudade that comes to me when I think about Lisbon, I need to share with you this insane recipe. It is packed with a lot…

I love soups, especially in winter. I find that a cozy winter Sunday must include a hot bowl of soup, spicy if you ask me, a cashmere plaid, a good book and a privileged view on the sunset, with a glass of wine in my hand. I made this recipe a while ago, but I…

A Beginner’s Guide to CrossFit

I have been there. Almost one year and a half ago I was walking into Crossfit Clusone for the first time and that was my very first time at trying Crossfit. I felt intimidated and worried, I did not know how much it would hurt. Yet, to this day never have I regretted the moment I…

Day 17 – I Am Afraid.

Between this week and next week, I am probably going to try my Back Squat PR. Remember on day 1, when I said I was going to work my ass off for the next weeks because I wanted a 100kg back squat? I literally worked my ass off, to get an ass. But let’s get…
