Honest Talk: a Woman in front of the Mirror

Have you ever felt disgusted at yourself? Yes, I said it out loud, with no nicer terms. Yes, I used a word that should never ever be used to describe any body, let alone our own. But still, I was looking at myself in some pictures and one of the parts of my body that…

#CoachingCami: Nutrition & IF

Dunque, questo post è un fuori programma, dovuto ai messaggi di instagram che ci chiedevano più informazioni su intermittent fasting e sui macros.Premessa: io non ho le competenze per parlarne in maniera esauriente, ma proverò a dirvi quello che sto facendo io. Da novembre ho iniziato a fare intermittent fasting. Ci sono diversi modi di…

#CoachingCami

Il mio ragazzo, di seguito indicato come il coach,  ed io abbiamo deciso di fare questa nuova rubrica. Da qualche settimana ormai, lui ha iniziato ad allenarmi con regolarità e da quando mi sono iscritta in una nuova palestra a Trent, si sta occupando lui di tutta la programmazione. Lui voleva dare a questa rubrica…

Hell Week: We are doing it AGAIN

A few nights ago, while I was eating a pizza with my boyfriend, I officially told him I was going to do two hell weeks this year. Last time I did it in November 2016, it completely changed my life and the way I approach life, challenges and everything in between. 27 months later, I…

day 60 – and now what?

So this post wasn’t planned, however, since yesterday’s post I got asked what the boyfriend/PT had already asked me on Saturday: what is your next goal now? Well, let me begin by saying that I would love to aim for a 150kg back squat because that would put me in the elite group of squatters (according to women my age). And…

“You’ve lost weight”

I guess there is no easy way to talk about this. So I am going to do it in the only way I know it, with the sharp, witty, honest talk I always do when it comes to such issues. I have lost weight. Maybe not as much as I’d like. Maybe not enough for…

day 39 – not quite there

Remember day 1? It’s been 39 days since then, 39 days during which I worked my ass off, dealt with life in between, ate as much protein as I could, jiggled in university, too many squats per day and many other things. I did NOT reach my goal of a 100 kg back squat by…

Jan, you were good. February, you could be better

It’s this time of the month. The beginning of a new chapter and a brief review of the previous one, hoping that for once you have finally learned the lesson. January has been good. Real good. I was very stressed the first 18 days due to an exam, that went very well, and then had…

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…
