How do you typicaly start your day? With water, like I do? Or do you go shower first?
Every one does something different. And that inspired me to go look for other morning routines.
And I found the one of a Dutch health/cookbookwriter Rens Kroes.
She kicks her day of with this delicious detox drink.
It is warm, something that suprised me.
It’s really easy to make.
Detox morning drink
– ts cinnamon
– ts cayenne peper
– tbsp honey or maple syrup
– 250 ml hot water
Mixes everything (except the mint) together. Then, after a good stir, pput the mint on top.
It gives you some sort of an energy boost, and that’s what you want, to start the day.
I think I’ll be having this more often.
I have a lot of exames this week. It gives me such a lot of stress!
I try to relax by taking baths and go to yoga classes more often, but my mind feels still so full.
And on top of that I try to do Kayla’s workouts the best I can.
But I have very little time, and a lot of plans or things to do.
But I know, once I get used to Kayla’s regime, and when the schoolstress is over, I’ll be happy that I did everything I had to.
Good luck you guys!
I want to talk about work and the importance of it. I know that working is the way to get money, to live a good life without some worries.
But is that all? Shouldn’t work be more then that? I believe that you should get everything out of your life, to live life to the fullest. And work is an important factor in this process.
When you have a boring, lame job, with unpleasant colleagues; how on earth would you be able to continue that FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE? Right. You won’t.
Work should be a fun place to go; a place where you meet nice, new and inspiring people. People who want to help you be the real ‘you’. People who aren’t judgemental, but honest.
That’s why I decided to quit one of my jobs. My (former) boss liked it to swear at people. He called us terrible names, and expected us to just listen to it. I couldn’t do that anymore. I didn’t want to work: afraid of what he might say. Isn’t that horrifying? So I decided to work for ‘me’, for what I bij wanted, for my luck and not only for the money.
I felt brave today.
I forgot to log my eatingdiary! So let’s do that now. 🙂 I had a good day yesterday, lots f fresh fruit and a fabulous salad. I had an all raw day but not on purpose. I had to work till nine, and after that I didn’t felt like cooking. So I made an easy salad. But it was really good. Today I’m gonna put some more effort in my meals, I’ll be making pumpkinsoup and a large salad. I bring my salad to work, hopefully while it work out. (Most of the time it’s to busy to have a large and relaxed lunch, but hopefully it won’t today)

Hee wonderfull people,
how are you guys doing today? I’m fine, I’ve worked from 7.00-18.00 so I had a long day. I should feel tired, but I don’t. Maybe a bit, but if you think about the long day I made… I’m happy that I feel so well. I had an amazing dinner, thanks to a recipe from purplehouseblog. The soup was perfect, I even made extra for tomorrow.

Hey lovely people,
I forgot to post yesterday, I was so tired when I came back from work, I couldn’t find the energy to blog. I’m sorry! Whoever, today I could, so here I go!
As you may know, I love in Amsterdam and let me tell you one thing; It was terribly hot here today! I should be happy, but I had to go to work so I didn’t care that much. RT4 at my work (I have 2 jobs, today I worked in a bookstore) went well! I had the time to relax and eat, what made me really happy. I just came back from visiting a friend, he’s been in a car-ccident but is now on recovery. It was good to hear that he’s feeling better, and doesn’t need as many medication as before.
And now my foodentry. Let start with yesterday, day 1.
