photo (8)Having travelled to spain this summer(Awesome trip and a beautiful country!) I thought of writing a blog post on Staying fit during the vacation, which isn’t as hard as it seems! especially when there’s a lot of new and tempting food to try (Eg : my favorite Napoletana de chocolate in Madrid, Yumm !). However, here are top keys to stay fit during the vacation and enjoy it as well! :

1.Eat smart : Eating smart doesn’t mean being healthy 100% of the time, it means knowing “How and what to eat”. Enjoy cheat meals and signature dishes in moderation and mind portion sizes. I used to have a big breakfast in the morning hotel buffet(Important) to fuel my long day, and this included eggs, dairy, 1 whole grain serving, 2 fruits and a cup of tea (Avoided pastries and refined sugars)

2. Keep healthy and handy snacks: Each one of us bought their own healthy snacks, nuts and delicious fruits! Mini bite chocolate is also OK (80 calories /serving) as long as you mind the portion!

3. Remember to stay hydrated : During a long day of touring, walking & hiking, it is easy to get dehydrated, however once you have a handy bottle of water, staying hydrated is also as easy!

4. Stay active : The great things is that when calorie out is > than calorie in, or equal, there’s no weight gain! and in fact, vacation trips can increase your fitness level if you utilize it smartly. During our Spain trip, it felt like we’re working out everyday! from catching trains and buses, to walking for 10 hours almost everyday, finding certain museums and monuments by walking instead of buses, to climbing stairs and up hills, it literally was longer than the usual workout out of the day, so take the chance and expend the energy!

5. Vaccation done? ¬†Back on track! if you feel like you’ve gained weight, it’s never too late to get back on track.Start eating clean and get back to your training schedule by doing cardio! your body will respond to this quite nicely!

Remember, being Committed and dedicated to staying fit is more of a lifestyle which makes it more fun! rather than a burden ūüôā Enjoy it!

Something about them Auroras...

My obsession with this heavenly nature phenomena started when a Finnish friend of mine told me about it(since they have a lot of Auroras back there in finland).In northern latitudes they’re known as “Aurora Borealis” named after the roman goddess of Dawn “Aurora” , and the Greek name for the north wind, “Boreas” .When watching a video about how it looks like,i was literally in a state of trance from the start of the video till the end.It seemed like an unearthly form of beauty,it was just,too good,too good to be true…More like i was enchanted.Those colourful rays of light dancing in the midst of the cold sky,whispering coded messages and not leaving trails after disappearing ~ It makes me happy,it makes me think of how beautiful life is,but Foremost,makes me think of the power of Allah’s creation in giving us such a beautiful phenomenon that makes us ponder upon the beauty of life&Nature.And surely,if Auroras are too beautiful,then how beautiful is the one who created it? Whenever i watch my favorite Aurora video,I fall in love with Nature,more like,i fall in love with The Creator (Allahu subhanahu wa Taa’la)
