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…

DOMS and How to Recover Faster

We have all heard about them. We have all feared them. YET we never really know how to take care of them. We are talking about DOMS, that weird sensation you wake up to when you train really hard, and how to address them. Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is the pain and stiffness felt…

Recipe: A Heartyโ€‹ Bowl of Thai Soup

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…

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…

Winter Favorites

Isn’t winter your favorite time of the year as well? I love it — especially when I’m inside with a plaid on, next to a fireplace and with a glass of red wine in my left hand. But also out there on the slopes, skiing and drinking bombardino with my friends. Anyway, I decided to…

10 Facts about Me

You know that one of my new year’s resolutions is to write a post every working day of the week – at least – right? So I thought that despite having published almost 1000 posts, I never really shared a list of 10 facts about me… therefore, there you go! I speak 5 languages and…
