Hey guys!

Today I want to share a great healthy muffin recipe that i got from Tuuli (https://www.instagram.com/ttttuuli/.

I didn't do it exactly like she did, but the idea is same. I never follow recipes, I always adjust amounts by eye and do it in my own way. I have followed the recipes in the past, but they never turned out the way I wanted to, so now I just trust my inner "chef" haha :D

1 muffin contains: 130 kcal (7g carbs, 9.3g fat, 5g protein)

Ingredients:

40g unsweetened cocoa

35g whole grain oat flour

2 large eggs

60g unflavoured plain yogurt / greek yogurt

60g lactose free milk (you can use any milk)

30g coconut oil (melted)

sweetener (I used stevia, because it's natural and doesn't raise blood sugar + zero calories), add as much as you feel it's sweet enough for you

vanilla

20g dark chocolate (I used 85% dark)

45g almonds

1,5 tsp baking powder

pinch of salt

raspberries


How to make:

Whip eggs, stevia and pinch of salt. Add yogurt and milk, then cocoa, oat flour and baking powder. Then melt coconut oil and add to the dough. Put raspberries to the muffin forms ( I used silicone forms, because muffins come out from them easily and nothing sticks to the forms). Then add dough and put chopped chocolate and almonds to the top. I baked them about 20-25 min in 200°C. But use toothpick to make sure that muffins are ready and not raw. Every oven is different so it depends on that.


Next time I am going to double the amounts to make more muffins, this time I only got 9 :(




Kristo bought me new gym gloves, because I lost my previous ones. It's so much better to work out with gloves because hands and fingers doesn't slide when they get sweaty or whatever. And nothing doesn't rub them. Now it's so much better for me to do pull ups and lift heavy.

Right now I have actually nothing interesting to write, because I've been only at school and gym :D

But yesterday when Kristo and I went to Haapsalu, our tire broke. We both have never changed the tire, but Kristo handled it very well and fast :) He put on emergency tire, but it's just temporary and you can't drive with that a long distance or fast. We drove slowly just in case. Unfortunately every tire repair shop is closed at weekends, so we have to wait for the new week. For now we have to ride with train and buses :D Yay.

Hey guys!

Welcome to my new blog! This time, I decided to write my blog in English. The first reason is that I just want to improve my English and don't want to forget this language since I don't use it every day. And more important reason, not all of the readers are Estonian people, but I want everyone to understand my posts. I apologize if my writing isn't the best, but I try to not make much mistakes ;)


So.. yesterday I woke up and it was pretty hard to get up from the bed, because my glutes were so damn sore from yesterday's workout. To be honest, I wasn't sure at gym if my workout was good enough, cause I was tired and didn't have so much motivation as I usually do. Somedays just aren't as good as others. But these are my dedication and passion that keep me going, even if I don't want to. We don't get better at things if we do them only when we want to. But the glutes muscle pain I am having today, is definitely telling me that I did a good job with them yesterday. Booty's growing, yeyyy!





By the way, I received a package that https://vitamins.ee/ sent me for free, just to try out. I was so happy and grateful. It's my first time to try something out for free. But my review is still going to be honest about these products. They sent me Proteinella, which is like Nutella but way more protein and low in sugar. And they also sent me Protein Pancakes Mix, cookies and cream flavor.

My proteinella is white chocolate flavoured, which taste is exactly like melted white chocolate, and there's a slight protein taste too, but it doesn't ruin it. You can add it to the porridge, pancakes, toast or wherever you want to. It was really tasty and good spread for the pancakes. The 250g can costs 5.95 euros. There are 3 flavors: smooth&creamy, super cruchy and white chocolate. But just like Nutella, it contains a lot of calories, so don't over eat :D 100g contains 496kcal.

Pancake Mix powder smelled really good, really similar to Fast Cookies&cream pudding. There was also some little brown cookie pieces. It was really easy to make, just mix with water. Pancake dough was good and thick, didn't stick to the pan. They were crispy and fluffy, just the way I like it. Although the dough tasted like cookies&cream, the ready made pancakes were like regular pancakes. Don't get me wrong, they were still very delicious. But what I didn't like about them, was the ingredients like wheat flour and sweeteners (sucralose, acesulfame-K). I am trying to avoid these chemical sweeteners, which actually are in many many "health", zero calorie, protein products. But if you don't consume them a lot and often, then it's okay.

Overall, I really enjoyed these 2 products. I still prefer real food and real pancakes, but it's nice to have some easy,simple & fast desert like this sometimes :) Thank you vitamins.ee !




As I mentioned before, that sometimes there just isn't any motivation to work out. What helps me with that? How to get motivation back?

Usually there's just 2 options for me:

1) suck it up and still go to gym, for the great after-gym-feeling

OR

2) take a rest day or even 2 days and do something pleasant.

Second option is great, because if I don't go to gym that day then I am going to miss it so badly and can't wait to go back there again. Sometimes you just need to be away from somebody/something, to realise how important it is to you.

Yesterday evening Kristo and I went to spa. Swimming, hot tub and saunas are so good and relaxing, for the body and also the mind. Now I feel that my body is so relaxed and free, muscles are less sore and feeling so fresh.

For an extra motivation boost, I just like to watch slideshow about my goals. At the beginning of our relationship, we both decided to make a list about our dreams and goals of life. We didn't show them to each other until they were ready. Suprisingly, we both made powerpoint slideshows not just a list on paper or sth :D And what's even more important, that it was sick how much we had same stuff there! On some slide we had put even same photos. I can't believe how same we are :D At this point I realise that he's the one. Last year we both made a tiger tattoo on our arm, with the same tiger picture. And it was the first thing in our goals list that we made real. And many more are coming.


That's all for today, have a nice end of the weekend!
