My top 5 fitness idols

Like every girl who loves fitness, I have people I look up to very much. In this blogpost I will tell you who are the most important ones.

  1. Kayla Itsines (@Kayla_Itines)

My very first fitness idol was Kayla Itsines because her program was the first program I followed. Before starting her program I used some machines in the gym but nothing consistent. What I think is very beautiful about Kayla Itsines is that she really wants to make women stronger, physically and mentally. Besides that, she posts progress pictures of women following her fitness guides who have gotten great results almost everyday. She also makes sure everyone comes into the spotlight once.

2. Dorine (@DorineFitt)

The second model I started looking up to was Dorine. I had been following her for a while and I saw she was making a lot of progress. She was different than Kayla Itsines, more muscular and actually I wanted to get a fuller look than Kayla Itsines. I also got a little tired of her fitness guides and wanted to try lifting real weights. Dorine was actually the only one I knew a little who did it, so I asked her for help.Β  Here we are a year later and I think she made a lot of progress.Β Yesterday, she competed for the first time and she ended second! I really look up to her for her perseverance and she really has a killer-body!

3. Amanda Finnie (@AmandaFinniee)

Amanda Finnie actually has a little bit the body of my dreams. She is the same age as me and I think it’s crazy she already has accomplished so much at this age. Some time ago I decided to do intuitive eating instead of tracking everything. When I was still doubting, I saw on Amanda’s profile that she has never tracked, neither counted calories. When I saw that, I decided to go for it because if she could accomplish this without tracking, then I can do that too, right?

4. Ray Sedrak (@the_nattyprofessor)

Ray Sedrak is actually the only male fitness role model I really look up to. Mostly I look up to women because I can associate myself better with them. For me, Ray is very special because he taught me so much! He gives super interesting information almost daily on his Snapchat and in his Instagram captions. Most of the time, this information tells about flexible dieting but also about training, supplements. etc. I tried different things he said and I was never able to say he wasn’t right about something! He is also very friendly. I contacted him a few times and he always answers. The coolest thing he ever did was he once gave me a shout-out. I was really happy!

5. Lauren Drain (@laurendrainfit)

Lauren Drain is one of the most popular fitness models in my opinion. Her pictures are a little spicy sometimes but I like that she is interactive with her followers. She once liked a picture of me and gave me a shout-out on Snapchat! What I also like about her is that she tries to not care about what others think. This isn’t easy of course. She used to be insecure about her quads because they are very muscular but I think it’s beautiful!

So, this was my top 5. I hope I can meet some of my fitness idols at FIBO. Are you going to FIBO? Which fitness idols do you look up to? I am curious!

love,

Jana

 

Healthy recipe: Tortilla with chicken and Mexican greens mix

Today the first healthy recipe with chicken. Tortilla with chicken and Mexican greens mix. A very useful recipe for when you don’t have much time and you can also make it for more days very easily, like I do sometimes to spare some time.
What do you need? (Recipe for 2 people)
  • 200 grams (7 oz) chicken
  • 400 grams (14 oz) Mexican greens from Albert Heijn (you can make this yourself but it will take some more time. The mix contains leek, French beans, kidney beans, corn, red pepper and white cabbage)
  • Tortillas

How do you make it?

  • Slice the chicken.
  • Put some olive oil in a frying pan (much healthier than butter).
  • Cook the chicken until it’s not pink on the outside anymore. You can add some chicken herbs if you want to.
  • Add the greens mix, put the stove lower and put a cover on the frying pan. Stir from time to time. When the greens mix shrank enough, it’s ready.
  • Take a tortilla and serve! I always add some soy sauce but don’t take too much because it has a strong taste!

I hope you like it. Let me know if you would make it!

First blogpost

Hi everyone!

Here it is, my first post in english. I’ve had a blog in dutch for some time now but because I noticed I had a lot ofΒ followers who don’t speak dutch on instagram as well, I decided to translate my posts into english.

From my old blog posts, I will only translate the ones who I think are still useful. Ofcourse, I will translate all the recipes and every post in the future. I hope you are as excited as I am!

Maybe I should introduce myself first: My name is Jana. I am 21 years old. I study commercial sciences on the university of Ghent. I love bodybuilding and living a fit lifestyle so that is what most things on this blog will be about. Do you still have questions or suggestions for new posts? Don’t hesitate to contact me!

Kisses,

Jana
