2011 was a tough year. Leaving Greece and a lot of friends, learning a new language and getting acquinted are just a few of the challenges I had to face.
Am I working out because of vanity? Someone asked me that a while go. Yes and no. Mostly no, even though people might not believe that. Yes, it's awesome to feel great and to see your abs for the first time in your life.
I have been on a quest to find a good shaker for both my protein shakes and my Results&Recovery Formula for a long time now. I tested a lot of shakers, from the cheapest plastic ones from the local grocery store to expensive and complicated thingamajigs from official body-building stores for which you almost need a manual in order to use (or clean for that matter). Either those thing couldn't even get through a simple session of shaking without spilling liquid all over or it took 15 minutes to take the things apart, clean then again about 15 minutes to figure out how to put the thing together again.
If you all of a sudden stagnate in losing weight or leaning out you are probably under-eating. Eating and giving your body the exact amount it needs, without feeding it too much or too little is a really tricky task on itself. Pack this on top of the whole exercise routines and you face quite a challenge if you want to stay healthy and keep reforming your body.
I love whole wheat bread but here in Greece it's hard to find the ones that really ARE whole wheat (it doesn't help that I can't properly read Greek..) and just because bread looks brown doesn't mean it's whole wheat at all.. So I had the plan for a while now to just make my own bread and here is the recipe of the bread I did a while ago.
