Fitness | How to avoid unwanted talks


Are you ready to talk fitness?? ;-)

How annoying is to be at the gym, minding your own business while working out, and having people staring at you or even coming to talk to you with "silly talks"?!
Yeah, it happened... and I don't like it.
What does make some people think that just because you're there that you have a "2nd agenda"?!
It is a fact that some people go to the gym not really to work out but to just socialize or even
to try to find a girl/boyfriend. That's fine for them, but just let me be...

After some thought and experiments, I came to a very nice solution that sort of "repels" those guys at the gym that think they can actually get something from you.
The solution was right there, in my closet.
I'm talking about those "bad ass" (some, even ugly one could say) metal festival (or band) t-shirts!

I have quite some of these t-shirts, thanks to my man's job, lying around totally useless.
Unless I'm doing a major cleaning in the house or moving houses, I won't wear them but now, they have a new purpose/mission!

It works like a wonder (unless your gym is full with metalheads!)!

Here some examples:

Put one of these on and nobody will even dare to say a word!

Don't get me wrong; I'm no anti-social or whatsoever, but I just don't like to be bothered. :-)
I go to the gym to work out and that's it!

If you don't have any of these t-shirts then I wish you good luck...
No matter what, go work out, get active and stay in shape!
Your body and mind will appreciate (and maybe even your ego/self-esteem, in case you hear
unwanted compliments every now and then).

A new adventure starts today!!!

Hello there!!!

It has been a while since my last post, but life has been busy as well. How have you been on that side of the screen?

Well, today I'm writing about a new chapter in my life that I am very happy to start. It took me a while to take this step for several reasons but now I'm on a roll!!
If you follow me on instagram or FB, you may have seen a picture of mine saying that I was about to start a new adventure, a 9 month adventure.
99.9% of people thought the same, but I'm very glad to tell you that, you WERE WRONG!!!!

No, my 9 month adventure is not called "pregnancy" but instead is called "Invisalign"! :D
I have decided to get braces and my treatment lasts for 9 months, in a total of 19 aligners (38 weeks). Today is my first day and so far all is going great! I do feel a little pressure on my teeth but no pain AT ALL!!

I am planning on keeping a little journey update as I know several people look for this kind of orthodontic treatment. I also read TONS of blogs/reviews and lost count on how many Youtube videos I watched.

But for now, that's all! :)
I hope you had as much fun with the prank as I did!

Pelos caminhos de Portugal - part 7 - Food in Guimarães!

Hello again!!

I hope you are not hungry when you read this, because I am about to show you some of the super delicious foods we had in Guimarães.
All our meals were at S. Tiago's Square because over there there are plenty of great restaurants and it's very easy to find. This square is right in the center so you can't miss it. On a square "next door" called Largo da Oliveira you will find nice pubs to grab a dinner!

In all places we went, the service was great, as quick as possible and the food was just damn delicious!! You always get a lot for the price you pay.
The most difficult part was always to chose what to eat; the options are endless and most of them I had not have in a while. Difficult...
Part of this trip was also meant as a new "food experience", especially for Portuguese cuisine is very diverse and "homey" and I was so happy to see that along the way, was enjoying it. Mission accomplished! :-)

On to the food:

  • Caldo Verde + Polvo à Lagareiro = happy me!!! Mr. man had for desert a little Toucinho do Céu which is an abbey pastry. We topped with some great wine and coffee afterwards.

  • For lunch with had a great Gilt-head bream (aka Dourada) on the grill with black eyed bean salad. Enough to keep us going the whole afternoon.
  • For dinner, I had squids in tomato sauce with potatoes. 
  • As a snack, with a salty pastries with different fillings. We call them empadas.

Did I make you hungry?? hahaha
On the next chapter: Vila Real!!!

See you soon!!
