Exercising during pregnancy


 I was always into sport. I think it all started with watching Olympic games on TV. My favourite olympic sports were: gymnastic and figure skating. 
To this day I have a scar under my chin, after practising my skating moves on the kitchen tiles! LOL.

At school I was always taking a part in a different sport competitions like : swimming, 60m run or speed skating. I need to say, I've never been extraordinary or great with this things , but I was good enough to compete with others. Last place in the competition it is also a place! Haha

But my true adventure with fitness started years ago when I visited my brother in Germany. Back then he was into gymnastics and he took me to his training. And from that very day I decided I want to be super fit! I left my previous job and I became a fitness instructor. That was 7 years ago, 

Now I'm 34 weeks pregnant and I still continue my training. The more my belly is growing , the less intense is my training, but I do what I can do and I always listen to my body. Sometimes it means just 5 minutes on Cross-trainer and some gentle stretching, but even in so advanced pregnancy I would use free weights and do some deadlifts or squats. 

Nowadays things had changed around , and seeing pregnant woman at the gym or rushing to yoga class with mat under her arm, it's not that controversial. In fact, there are studies which show that exercising during pregnancy has great benefits. It make you feel strong and it can prepare you for labour and childbirth.



Remember, before you continue your old exercise routine while you pregnant , or begin a new one, you should talk to your doctor.

I sit on the sunbed, one I bought 2 years ago and I listen to the sound of the ocean. It feels like we have never left this place. Just our apartment is better. We swapped bin view (#budgettravel ) for the ocean view (#bigspenders ).  And Canarian Princess is now with us. Finally at home. ;)
We wander around the streets and refresh our memories about things we have done and food we have eaten during the time we lived here. And we are doing so well with our Spanglish!

I still can't wrap my head around it! How the hell I became a full-time student?! I didn't plan it, that's for sure. But I got this idea, in the back of my head and then I sent an email, went for an interview and bum! I'm a Fashion Styling student :D


Let's go back to the day I went for another interview. It was a job interview for an office assistant after which I knew I don't want to spend my whole day in front of the desk, answering phones and dealing with complaints and queries. No! No! No! I felt it in every part of my body, I don't want to stay here. I don't wanna do what I was doing before either. I lost my enthusiasm although I was pretty sure that I'm going in the right direction.

I got an extra push from my career counselor and I sent an email to college with the question if I can still apply for this year although the course has started already. On the next day, I went for an interview, showed my artwork and became a Fashion student. I cri…
