The top Five Superfoods
*Aloe vera has anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and anti-viral properties. This energy tonic contains vitamins A, B12, C, and E, the minerals sulfur, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium, as well as antioxidants, fiber, amino acids, enzymes, sterols, lignins, essential fatty acids and is naturally rich in polysaccharides. The polysaccharides that are available in aloe have a particular lubricating effect on joints, brain and nervous system and the skin. They allow our immune system to fight back chronic viral, nanobacteria, and fungal infections.
*Spirulina is anywhere from 62-71 percent essential amino acids. It contains beta carotene. It also contains chlorophyll, , and vitamin B12. It is actually the richest source of vitamin B12. B12 is important for healthy tissues, energy, and nerves…especially for strict vegetarians.
*Barley Grass has high anti-oxidant properties and significant levels of Omega 3 essential fatty acids, necessary for healthy cell wall development and brain function. Barley grass is also an alkaline food and helps keep the pH of the bloodstream at a normal healthy level.
*Coconut oil helps to balance hormones, stabilize blood sugar levels and boost the cellular healing process. It is also known to stimulate the thyroid and reduce stress on the liver and pancreas. This increases metabolism and helps us burn fat more effectively. Additionally, coconut oil increases our energy levels due to its very clean and easy digestive process.
*Chia-Chia seeds are rich in omega-3 and 6 fatty acids and much more ♥

I know I haven’t lost much weight since I started my journey 2,5 months ago, but my intention was to lose fat (not weight). The progress is slow, but I can see it from day to day. This picture is of my tummy after 2,5 months of working out 4-5 times a week and clean eating (80% of the time). I still think I have a lot of workouts to do to get the body I want and this picture motivates me :-)
so true!! i’m trying so hard to work on my posture. it’s so important!
How I got my splits!
Stretch 1 - Try not to let the front knee come beyond the toes. Having your toes on your back leg curled under will make it slightly easier for beginners.
Stretch 2 - Stand up with your legs apart and just get as low as you can go!
Stretch 3 - Sit back on one leg (so your foot is under your bum) with the other leg straight in front, and bend over your front leg as far as you can.
Stretch 4 - One leg bent in front and the other directly behind. This yoga pose is called One Legged Pigeon
Stretch 5 - Yoga mermaid pose, don’t stress if you can’t do this straight away, it’s a big quad stretcher, don’t force this - it’ll come with time!
Do all stretches on both legs!
- Do these AFTER you are warmed up (I suggest cardio) otherwise you may hurt yourself.
- Practise every day with one day rest and try to hold each pose for at least 30 seconds.
- It took me 1.5 months to get my right split and 2 months to get my left. Everyone is different so you could need more or less time than I did, but be patient!
- LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!! If your muscles are really hurting, light stretching only! Don’t force it!
