Murter, Croatia, 4/6-13/6

Ahh, holidays. The time for proper relaxation and carefree lightness — something that we all probably want. My boyfriend and I went to Murter last summer already but, since we enjoyed it so much, we decided to visit this beautiful Croatian islet one more time.

Vanilla protein latte macchiato

Sometimes, you’re just bored of coffee. Well, not really, but it gets to a point when even a cup of coffee just doesn’t satisfy your craving, either because you’ve cut your sugary syrups, flavoured creamers or… Or maybe you’d just like to try something new and squeeze some protein macros in while you’re at it. After all, who can say no to a tasty protein treat?

New adventures ahead!

As you’re reading this, I’m on my way to a nicer part of the world. I’m going to the Croatian seaside! So this is why this post will be short but sweet (yes, it’s scheduled).

I had a tough day at work, having to take care of everything by 4 pm. I also needed to buy some tidbits for the trip and pack up for ten days or so. I’ve discovered that most my shorts didn’t fit me any more, all of them were too big. This is what happens when you lose a few centimetres round your waist but you forget to check whether any of old shorts still fit. Oh well, I guess I’ll look like a clown, wearing oversized clothes. But summer getaways are great for wearing clothes you’re too shy to wear back home, right?

Currently

I was looking for some blog ideas and found Brittany Lesser’s post over here. It’s a pretty nifty idea so I thought I’d write a post like that, too. Perhaps an update every so often would be welcome, too?

London, 13/5–16/5

Finally! The photoshoot has been completed and my red rucksack all packed up. I wanted to travel with as few items as possible so I put everything in the mentioned rucksack and a handbag – luckily, Ryanair has become a bit more lenient when it comes to cabin baggage! Yay! It turned out that getting to the Trieste airport more than two hours in advance was a waste of time because the security check was crowd-free and, afterall, we had our seats reserved already so there really was no need to be the first in line. Since we had a lot of time to spare, my boyfriend and I answered a questionnaire about customer satisfaction at the airport. Some questions required us to THINK REALLY HARD because Italian English non funziona. 🙂

Spicin’ it up

TGIF. Today was my fourth workout this week and the first time I worked my calves since the end of the Maxx Fit Contest over a week ago. It’s hard to get back into the groove after nearly a week of not working out, and since calves are my weak point, it was all the more difficult to find the energy necessary.

For some reason, I’m always freezing when doing calves – maybe because it’s only a tiny body part I’m working on – so I need to dress super warm for it. It was no different this time round so I tried to do reps as fast as possible in order not to cool down. Worry not, I did every set with care and no muscles were torn! 🙂

Maxx Fit after Maxx Fit 2015

Hello, I guess I’m back in action once again, now on a new website*.

I participated in a fit contest and one of the requirements was to write a blog about my progress, including my workouts and meals. And guess what? I got so used to writing about my daily life over the past four months that now, when the contest’s nearly officially over, there is something missing in my life. Sure, I have other, more important things to write about but I suppose there’s nothing like writing about your daily shenanigans.

I don’t think I will post every single day but once every week should be manageable, right? Except that this time round, I won’t be writing only about fitness, or knitting, I’ll also try to include some other things like concerts, random thoughts, make-up maybe… Things like that. Whatever sparks my interest and keeps my creativity juices flowing, haha.

And to keep you interested, here’s the topic for my next post: London!

*You can find my old blog at bunnyechoes.blogspot.com. What are my reasons for moving? One of them is that I barely updated my old blog, which has been set up 6 years ago. It never had any specific purpose and the posts were published only now and then. I’m considering this a fresh start and a new blog seemed very fitting. Another reason is that once I changed the URL of my old blog, Bloglovin wouldn’t find its feed and I don’t want to spend time waiting for their reply to my e-mail query. Yes, I’m impatient!

Here’s to a fresh start!
