How many times have you seen a post like this on facebook or 9gag or twitter or wherever you spend you precious social media time?? Continue reading “Are you making conscious choices or just following the trend?”

I Grew a Beard

Okay here is the deal, I know I haven’t been super productive on the blog for a while, and to my regulars: I am truly sorry!

But fear not! It’s not because I haven’t been out and about, actually quite the opposite, I have been super busy, Singapore, Bali, New Zealand and right now writing from Lombok. So just because there haven’t been any posts going up, I have been saving them for when I have more time, which is right about now. Continue reading “I Grew a Beard”

I also skipped juice day this Thursday, I bet I even gained a bit of weight again…. So how do I attack this? What steps do I need to take to get back to transforming my self to the healthiest happiest me? Continue reading “Don’t let cookies get in the way of your success”

3 keys to staying motivated after initial success

Hanging in there

Something changes inside you during a transformation period, whether that being weight loss, training, muscle growth, diet, or even something that has nothing to do with health. The thing that makes it hard is routine. It just stops being exciting all of a sudden and all the workout highs and all the success kinda just turns into an everyday thing. So how do you keep yourself motivated when the shock of everyday life sets in? Continue reading “3 keys to staying motivated after initial success”

Super fast weight loss, fact or fiction?

Possibilities or limitations?

I love pushing the limitations set up by conventional thinking, testing out the classic sayings about how something needs to be done, in order to be healthy or possible. I know the old sayings are hard to let go of and leave behind, and they are not all bad and most of them have a great amount of truth in them, but in order to push the limits you have to say goodbye to all of them, and make up your own brand new set of rules!

Ubud foodie (guide 1) – Cheap and good eating!

Will this only be health food?

For a long time now, I have waited to write this Ubud food guide, because it’s going to take me forever. So instead of doing one complete guide, I am going to break it into bits. The first one in this mini series is going to be about the cheap spots, the places where you pay less than 50.000 Rupiah for your meal, the next one will be more of general guide, and the last one will then be about health food.

Vegan body building? myths and facts about training as a vegan.

Are you a vegan Jens?

I hate the expression ‘vegan’, because a bunch of people has taken patent on a word, and made up a bunch of rules of what it means and what you can eat, wear and do if you wanna call yourself a vegan. So NO I am not “vegan”, do I eat vegan? mostly yeah, I would say I eat vegan 95% of the time, but sometimes I’ll have some eggs, sometimes I’ll have ice-cream, once or twice a month I’ll even dig down deep in a salami and sausage pizza Continue reading “Vegan body building? myths and facts about training as a vegan.”
