Playa

Yesterday was a supernice day, not to talk about the weather 🙂 I had a big dose of D-vitamin at the beach which was necessary after the past week we had with the most cold-crazy weather. My friend thought there was a little “too much” people at the beach, well, but it truly was, and it’s gonna be even more crowded in a month when the real season starts. We spent some hours in the sand talking and then we went to have some nice food at the organic wok market just beside the beach. I love their wok with rice noodles, chicken and green curry with coconutmilk, spicy and supertasty.

In the evening me and my boyfriend went to Feria de Abril, a big event in Forum that they celebrate once a year with a lot of flamenco dancing, lots of food and activities. We just walked around eating some churros listening to the nice flamenco music 🙂

Flowers

I love this shirt. It feels like flowers are coming back and I love all flowery tops and dresses. I actually bought it without trying it on first, but sometimes when I see something it’s like I can see how it fits. It was perfect to wear today at the beach with white jeans, very summerish 🙂 image

My boyfriends cousin has a supercute fashion blog that I follow and she always knows what to wear 🙂 If you wanna get some fashion inspiration check it out as there is very cute summeroutfits 🙂

Spa

The other day me and my boyfriend went to a spa at a ****hotel to “destress” a little. We have been staying at this hotel before so we knew the spa was good when we bought it, and it was only 19 euro for 2 buying it online! It’s a nice way to relax the body and mind a little in between stressful days 🙂 Just when I entered the spa I already felt so relaxed as the smell of the pools hit my face and the hammam minth smell that I just love made me feel so relaxed!

The spa is really good, they have “stonewalking”, nordic icebath, a session of different showers and pressures of water that you have to walk through, iceroom, hammam sauna and regular sauna, a pool with masagebeds under water and jacuzzis, and then jacuzziz on the side and sunbeds and a dark relaxroom with hot massagebeds. My boyfriend spotted a former FC Barcelona player in the spa so that was also fun 🙂

When we walked home I was sooo relaxed in my body and had to hydrate myself with a frozen yoghurt! And off course when you are feeling so relaxed you don’t really feel like cooking so my boyfriend ordered my favourite: sushi!

Tuesday

This morning we had such a beautiful sunrise whilst I made my morning coffee, it looked like a little heart between the buildings;

So yesterday I finally started the gym and it was such a easy thing to do! Sometimes I think that the more I overthink about one thing, the more energy it takes then actually doing what I should do 🙂 I have to say that even though I am not in the best shape right now, I actually don’t feel so bad about it. I will just take it step by step, and day by day I will feel stronger, healthier and have more energy. Today was my second day I went with my boyfriend and I felt very motivated and full of energy!

After the gym and supermarket I made a fast kale salad with salmon, honeydressing, sunflowerseeds and goatcheese, and had some pistachios on the side, super yummie!

Weight goals

I have decided to gain 4 kilos before the summer. I know it probably sounds odd, usually the opposite what people wants to do just before the bikini season, but for me it is due to health reasons. I need to gain weight to get back to my “normal weight” and to feel “physically healthy” again. Last year before my pregnancy started I was 52 kilos and after everything we went through I went down to 49, then luckily up to 50.5 during christmas, but now I am down on 50 again. My weight goal before the summer starts would be 53,5 or preferable 54 kilos.

For me it is very frustrating to not gain weight easily, the same as for people struggling to loose weight, it’s kind of the same thing and it’s hard, but everything is possible as long as you put your energy and mind into it 🙂 My boyfriend is my cheerleader and he really encourage me to gain weight, making suggestions to do gym (as it’s always better to combine gym +diet) and helping me to be aware that I may be eating too small portions sometimes, so it’s really helpful to have that support 🙂

Small things I have added in my diet to gain weight:

Peanutbutter; it is off course very fattening, but it’s also superhealthy if you buy a natural peanutbutter without sugar and palmoil.

Nuts as snacks; nuts are incredible healthy and the best is that they are full of calories, I love walnuts, pistachios, cashews, almonds and sunflowerseeds which are all also good for the skin and hair.

Coconutoil; I try to eat a spoon a day with greek yoghurt for example, it’s also supergood for my skin and overall health.

Almondmilk; I have it in my tea or in a smoothie, it’s not as healthy as people think it is as it contains a lot of sugar so it gives a lot of extra calories.

Bread; I love baguettes which are really not the healthiest options of breads, but every morning I start with oatbread which also contains a lot of fiber and not so much carbs, but I try to eat some kind of bread to every meal during the day to get some extra calories.

Pasta; I love pasta, but especially pasta with cheese or any cream sauce like pasta carbonara, it is a perfect meal for those who want to gain weight.

I also think that the best thing is not to stress about it because sometimes stress can have the opposite effect. Still eat healthy, but bigger portions and lots of snacks 🙂 The last few days though I have been eating a lot of chickenwings, nachos, bacon and hamburger so hopefully that helped my weight goal a little 🙂

Things I am into right now

Converse shoes; after the winter it’s always nice to wear sneakers again and I love my blue and white converse shoes, they are comfortable and match with so many outfits. I especially love white converse, they are timeless sneakers and match with everything without looking too sporty.

Coconut oil; I use it for almost everything, in smoothies, as frying oil, as face- and hairmask, as makeup remover and for so many other things. It’s superhealthy and so convenient to have at home and also works for both baking and cooking.

 

 

Salads; Everyone knows how healthy it is to eat greeny leafes but not everyone likes salad a lot, (I used to be one of them). Now I eat more salad then ever due to that I started to mix different cheeses, dried fruits, nuts and dressings to mix a tasty salad that is not only healthy but that actually has a lot of calories that makes you feel full.

Squats; there is a 9 minute video I like from youtube and it’s so easy to do at home. I also downloaded a app with a 30 day squat challenge so I can easily follow how many squats to do per day. It’s almost summer so time to start the challenge tomorrow 😉

Take away coffee/tea mug; I love those take away mugs so you can prepare your coffee or tea at home and take it with you to work or to the beach maybe 🙂

Beachwalks; living so close to the beach and with this nice weather it’s time to start powerwalking again 🙂

image

Nuts; for the moment I am very addicted to pistachios, which is really good because they are superhealthy and contains a lot of iron and antioxidants!

Weekend

Good morning Sunday! The weather looks as beautiful as yesterday but I am not sure what we are gonna do today? I’ve been up early fixing a little in the flat and soon I’m gonna prepare our Sunday bacon breakfast as we always have on weekends. I love bacon, egg and fresh baguette on weekends, and some nutella on the side 🙂

Friday evening we went to my boyfriend’s friends house and had a chill sushi night. They made all the sushi themselves and it was tasty and beautiful decorated 🙂

Yesterday me and my boyfriend went to the beach after breakfast as the weather was really lovely, spring- but almost a little summerfeeling as well. We walked so much, all the way from home down to the beach, we walked all the beachway and to Maremagnum (the shopping center) so yes we got a lot of exercise! We stopped for lunch at the beach at the organic wokplace and had a greencurry spicy chicken wok with coconut milk. It was a supernice day and it was around 20 degrees so most people had no jackets and people were in bikinis taking sun at the beach. It really feels like the summer is gonna be here in no time 🙂
