Eat. Burn. Repeat: May 2017

When I have bad news, I write an elaborate post explaining myself and trying to find excuses. When I have good news, I jump right in! So here we go! Minus 1 pound, guys! Trying Cross Fit I spent the first two weeks of May like a good girl, eating healthy and going to gym….

Eat. Burn. Repeat: April 2017

Minus 2 pounds, guys! Can I just start without any introduction? I am so excited I can barely sit down and write because for the first time since I have announced that I am trying to lose weight (and it was three months ago!) I actually have some result to show. In my first month,…

Eat. Burn. Repeat: March 2017

Never thought I would be happy to see the same damn number on the scale as 30 days ago, but, surprisingly, I am. As you might remember, it’s been two months since I’ve decided to take care of my body and lose weight. As if my body thought it would be a great joke, instead…

Thoughts on 1 Year of Food and Travel Blogging

Today the most incredible thing happened: I received an email from the past, quite literally. One year ago I have started this blog, but the road to the decision was a long one and full of obstacles. Obstacles that I created for myself in my own mind, to be precise. On hesitations… The truth is…

The Biggest Problem of Having International Friends

What comes to your mind when you think of a possible problem with having friends all over the world? The language barrier? Naaah, facial expressions, gestures and, especially, alcohol help a lot in improving communication. You will be surprised, how proficient your language abilities become after having a couple of cocktails. Cultural differences? Not that…

Midnight Ramblings About Finding Your Voice

Right now I feel overwhelmed, and that’s why this post is not related to food in any way. It’s just me trying to make sense of all the information I consumed in the past days. Thoughts in my head are flying around bouncing of my temples, stumbling upon each other and producing tiny explosions. Sometimes…
