Five Faves on Friday

I would like to say it was the best week of my life, but it wasn’t. The first two weeks of the months are always very busy for me so I’m tired, as usual, but luckily, to make me happy, I could easily find things to love :)

1. My beautician is baaaaack :)

I lived in the suburbs for many years and found the world’s best beautician there, but I didn’t have time to visit her after I moved to the city centre. But now I’m sooo happy because she starts a new place not very far from me (only about 25-30 mins). It is literally the best news of the week.

2. Text after a good class

On Wednesday I had a class, where only a few people could attend but instead of this (or exactly because of this) the whole class was very good, it was fun and everything we need on a class. And it was definitely a hard workout. After the class, I got a text from one of the girls where she wrote excitedly how much she enjoyed the class. I love these texts!

3. honey

I don’t know why, but this week I became a huge fan of honey. I haven’t eaten honey for a while because I’m on a sugar-free diet and I rarely eat honey. But this week I had strong cravings for honey, so I put some on my food. These were perfect foods :)

The photo is an old one – we have this nice package for honey, I don’t know why, perhaps to make kids love honey… I don’t know. This is not the best quality but looks fun. Luckily, I got some very good organic honey from my mom. Mom is the best.

4. Rochelle

I found a new homepage that I really liked. You should check Rochelle’s page, too. She is totally for women’s and kids’ health!

5. AC is on

Quite a big heatwave started on Monday, we tried and tried, but finally we gave up and fought our laziness and cleaned the AC in the living room. Well, the workout in a room that is not sauna is much-much better. I love the inventor of AC! I rarely switch it on because I have headache and other problems with it, so usually I just switch it on for a few minutes while I’m in another room, then I do my workout in the not-that-hot room. Sometimes I feel, AC is a life-saving invention. At least, it is a workout saver because I don’t think I could have done my workout in my sauna room yesterday ;)

These were my favourite things this week, what were yours?

Five Faves on Friday

This week has been awful and really positive at the same time. It was about the extremities, things were either exceedingly good or awfully disappointing, but I guess this is the meaning of life, we have ups and downs.

if there are no ups and downs in your life

This week’s favourites <3

1. Melissa Bender

The best part of my week is that I’m very excited to start my workouts. Now, it’s always a surprise because it is not me who plans the structure, who has to think about the exercises. It’s just fun for free. And excitement. It was in January when I last had a session with my personal trainer (yes, because trainers visit trainers, too) and I really missed the freedom of the workouts, when someone else did every thinking. And not me. On Saturday, I started Melissa Bender’s 12 workout plan and I’m trying to stick to it. So far, it has been wonderful.

and I LOVE her assimetrical tops

2. My followers

I have two wordpress followers. Already. Thanks for following me <3

3. cider

I don’t drink alcohol too often, but sometimes it’s good to go out and socialise while drinking some. For many years, I was just drinking water when I went out with my friends who were huge fans of beer. And I’m not. But a few years ago I discovered we have cider. And since then it is my guilty pleasure. I like apple cider and cranberry the most.

On Wednesday, I “socialized” with myself and my drinking buddy, the “hippo in the jungle” and with a few workout plans I had to finish :)

4. Kinesio tape for pregnancy

I am also a Kinesio tape therapist and this week I had two pregnant women who I taped, which is funny because for months I haven’t had any pregnant clients for Kinesio. I really like working with them because the effect of the tape is immediate and I often get letters like “Even sleeping was easier, thanks” or “It worked! I finished work after 10 hours yesterday and I had hardly any pain in my back”. I love them. And they are always very enthusiastic and cute :)

5. almond + dried cranberry

I needed some midday snack but didn’t feel like eating anything, but then I found my hidden treasures: almond and dried cranberry. I like them separately, it’s not a big news, but together they are fantastic. Please try!

+1. Blogilates book

I received my copy weeks ago and I checked it then but put on the shelf for a while. This week I started to use it again, I like the style of the pictures, the design and how Cassey’s happiness glows and make me happy. It’s a good inspiration, too. I used some of her moves in the workout I wrote to my clients. They seem to like them ;) I love Cassey :)
