HEALTH: WHAT I EAT IN A DAY

EN:

I have decided to take you with me on my fitness journey and show you what I eat in a day!

If you have read this article and if you have been following my Instagram stories, then you know that I have started working out again. Also, what I eat in a day has changed a lot.

I am planning to change my approach a bit, as far as my articles are concerned. I have noticed that up until now I would only give you certain pieces of advice, I would serve you directly the lesson, completely omitting the whole story behind them. Thus I have decided to become a lot more transparent with you guys, and share with you my whole journey, with both its ups and downs.

Therefore, I am super pleased to announce a new Category on the blog: HEALTH. Continue reading

FIRST DAY AT THE GYM – LIFE CHANGING

Yesterday was my first day at the gym ( from 2018 ).

I have posted an article two weeks ago about how exercising more is one of my 2018 resolutions. In the article I have tried to motivate all of you to workout and treat your body right. Because our body is one of your most precious belongings. Now, you might say “Well, Alexandra, it’s easy to tell us to go to the gym, when you don’t even do it.” And that is partially correct.

2018 RESOLUTIONS, PART 1 – READ THIS IF YOU WANT TO START EXERCISING MORE

EN:

You might say that I am a bit late with this post, but since I had to postpone the whole relaunch of my blog, I have decided not to share this article with you until now.

I want to begin by saying that there is no such thing as “new year’s resolution”. Only because January is way behind us, you have no excuse not to set new goals and try to accomplish them.

Therefore, I invite you to join me, and let’s create our 4th of March resolutions together. 😉 Continue reading

IS INSTAGRAM BAD FOR YOU? TOP 3 TIPS ON HOW TO USE IT EFFICIENTLY

RO:

 

În ziua de astăzi, Instagram este una dintre cele mai utilizate platforme de social media, având mai mult de 800 de milioane de utilizatori activi lunar, conform site-ului statista.com. Spre deosebire de Facebook, care promovează predominant interacțiunea dintre utilizatori și distribuirea de informații, Instagram țintește mai mult către simțul nostru vizual. Și, având în vedere faptul că percepem majoritatea informației din jur prin intermediul ochilor, putem spune că suntem programați biologic să fim avizi de hrană vizuală. Continue reading

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR TIME

EN:

Does it ever happen to you to just sit there and all of a sudden realize that you have no idea where the whole day has disappeared? Of course, you had an incredibly busy day, you did not waste a single second, you had lots of activities and goals to accomplish, yet you feel like the whole day has lasted for one second, you feel like you have just woken up at the end of the day, not knowing how you got there. This used to happen to me all the time until a while ago when I realized what the problem was: the fear of deadlines.

EN:

Caring about other people’s opinions is the biggest obstacle to your happiness, and the thing that will constantly draw you back and keep you from progressing in life. And why is that?

Glad you asked.

So many people these days, especially teenagers and young adults, tend to suppress their desires and even their true personalities because they fear of what other people would think about their actions. “What will my mom say?”, “What will grandpa say?”, “How will my classmates feel about me doing that?”. All of these are frequent and seemingly harmless obstacles, small thoughts which make you question your most genuine wishes and sometimes determine you to give up on some things, ideas or even precious passions of yours, because you are worried that your definition of “right” does not correspond to theirs.

SOMETHING ABOUT FRIENDS

EN:

“You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” – Jim Rohn

It is extremely unfortunate that so many people with huge potential are wasting their time and capabilities because they allow the wrong “friends” to influence them. And it is not necessarily about the fact that your closest friends have a big impact on your behavior, which is also true, but it is more about the people you choose to spend your time with, choice which tells a lot about your personality, expectations and perception of life.  Continue reading
