I firmly believe that our soul and body are so well connected that it is a genius mechanism. And that it is why it’s so important to look after both in order to achieve good balance, happy state of mind and feel good.

Spring brings better weather but also lot of people suffer from fatigue, mood swings and our immunity can be weakened. So it is crucial to do the best we can for ourselves. And by that I do not mean just to walk in to Dior and walk out with a new pair of bag (but would be nice cherry on the cake). So here are 5 things I like to do in the spring and that help me.

  1. Meditate in nature – Mediation in general really helps me on a daily basis. 10 minutes can really change how you feel and how you see things. What is also amazing is to meditate in nature and that is just by sitting in a quiet spot and letting your thoughts flow. Just take in what is around you and enjoy that moment.
  2. Take your workout outside – Working out is one of the best things you can do but working outside is another level. It is almost a way of meditation and if you are not that fit even fast walking is good enough, it will help your blood circulation and your mind.
  3. Exfoliate and use sun protection – In spring I am always motivated to look after my body more. I exfoliate a lot so my skin is fresh and bright and I use sun protection. These are the small things that will pay off long term.
  4. Eat your superfood – Spring also offers a lot when it comes to food. We have lot of seasonal food that will benefit you but the intake of superfood is important to support your immune system.
  5. Slow down if you need – Only you know how you feel. You have to do what your body tells you to do. If you feel you need to rest…then do it as you are the one running your life and body and nobody else will do that for you.

Let me know if you have any other tips that help you the most in the spring.

Pevne verim, ze nase duse a podvedomi ovlinuje nase telo a  opacne, je to takovy dokonaly mechanismus, ktery nelze osalit. A tak je dulezite se starat o oboji. Casto to, co je dobre pro nase byti je dobre i pro nase telo a obracene. Nejlepsi je, kdyz dosahnete balancu a citite se dobre a hlavne stastni.

S jarem prichazi lepsi pocasi, ale casto take unava, zmeny nalad a s nejvetsi pravdepodobnosti mame i oslabenou imunitu. Kazdy bojuje po svem a prestoze udelat neco pro sebe a pro radost muze byt, ze si do Dioru zajdete pro novu kabelku, je to hodne o kazdodennich malickostech. Je to o tom si najit cas pro sebe, poslouchat signaly naseho tela a neco pro to udelat. Tady je par tipu, ktere na jare pomahaji v mem pripade. 

Meditace v prirode – Meditace jako takova mi hodne pomaha, ale meditovat muzete uz i tim, ze si sednete v prirode na klidne misto a nechate plout sve myslenky, vnimate vse kolem a nacerpavate energii. Je to opravdova ocista pro telo i dusi.

Cviceni venku – Pohyb je vzdy dobra rada, ale co teprve pohyb venku v prirode. Je to vlastne takovy zpusob meditace, ale zaroven si zlepsite kondici. A staci klidne chuze sviznym krokem a telo vam podekuje.

Starost o pokozku a ochrana pred slunickem – S jarem se mi nastartuje chut se o sebe vice starat a tak si rada delam peelingy, at se mi obnovi pokozka a hlavne je treba se chranit pred slunickem. To vse jsou male kroky, ktere se dlouhodobne vyplati.

Jist vyvazene a dodat telu superfood – Unava jde casto ruku v ruce s tim, co jime. A na jare je dobre vyuzit cerstvych bylinek, ktere rostou a dodat telu to nejlepsi. Muzete si vyhledat ruzna superfoods a zvysit jejich prisun. Jaro nabizi tolik moznosti co se jidla tyce, tak toho vyuzijte. 

Zpomalit, kdyz vam telo da signal – Neni dobre se telu vzpirat. Kdyz telo hlasi stop, poslechnete ho. Jenom vy vite jak se citite, druzi za vas neudelaji to ci ono a nasledujici den, jste to vzdy vy, kdo se musi vzchopit. A tak se nepremahejte, pokud nemate silu. 

A jake mate na jare ritualy vy? Je neco co vam urcite prospiva? 

Love Glamazon xoxo

I am the type of person that has got huge inner drive to be constantly doing something. I am always on the go, always filling free time with some activity and I find it very difficult to just switch off. I almost feel guilt if my day isn’t productive. I can say I rarely have days when I can say I did nothing. To me doing nothing is really is doing nothing…reading books, watching favourite TV show, having bath, pamper day and so on. However even on those days I always realise I did a lot whether that is work around the house or anything blog related. And I need to constantly find ways to justify why is it ok to have a lazy day and here is why…

  1. Balance is important – Keeping things in balance is important in most areas of our lives. You know it – balance, jing & jang, extremes are not good. So keep balance in between relaxation and work.
  2. Other people do that so can you – Every time I feel guilty again about taking things easy I think about other people and that we all do it sometimes.
  3. Do not force it – Yes sometimes we need to push ourselves for example when going to gym however from my experience if I am tired or not motivated forcing it does not end up well. You do not work as well and the result is not great either.
  4. Tomorrow is another day – If I decide to rest one day I have so much more energy following day that I manage huge amount of work and the quality is great.
  5. Love yourself – Loving yourself means also listening to your body and taking time off.

Jsem typ clovek, ktery ma vnitrni motivaci a nedokazu vetsinu dni zastavit. Musim porad neco delat, jsem rada produktivni a dokonce citim pocit viny, kdyz mam takovy uvolnenejsi a liny den. Nedokazu si pomoci, ale vycitky se casto dostavi. Jsem ten typ, ktery si pise seznam kazde rano s tim, co chci udelat a kdyz nezvladnu vsechno na na seznamu, docela tezce se s tim vyrovnanam. A tak take casto hledam ruzne duvody, abych se presvedcila, ze i takove dny jsou treba a klidne jich muze byt vic po sobe. A prisla jsem na tohle. Priste az si to budu vycitat, tak si prectu tento clanek :) 

  1. Balanc je dulezity – Balanc je dulezity ve vsech oblastech nasich zivotu a tak i balanc mezi odpocinkem a praci! Vyvazenost je tou nejlepsi cestou. Znate to jing a jang, vseho s mirou, rovnovaha….
  2. Delaji to ostatni tak proc ne vy – Tolik lidi v mem okoli ma dny, kdy zkratka vypnou. I prolezeny den u knizky a prochazky v prirode jsou treba.
  3. Neni dobre se nutit silou – obcas je dobre prekonat lenost, ale kdyz vam telo rika stop, musite poslechnout. Rika se, ze kazdy den se ma zit tak jako by byl ten posledni, tak proc se hnat neustale, aby bylo udelano to ci ono. A uz se vam nekdy stalo, ze kdyz se opravdu nutite, tak vysledek neni moc dobry? LOL urcite to znate. 
  4. Zitra je taky den – Moje zkusenost je, ze kdyz si opravdu lenosim, tak dalsi den mam tolik energie, ze stihnu dvojnasobek a ve velke kvalite. 
  5. Sebelaska je dulezita – Sebelaska je dulezita a to znamena, ze budete poslouchat sve telo a date mu vse co je treba a to i den volna.

5 Steps I have been doing to lose weight

I learnt over the years how to love my body. I went from somebody that controlled every calorie and worked out constantly until reaching burning out syndrome to  somebody that is all about balance and small steps.

However with age things are not going as easy as it was before and especially after I had a child. Certain parts are less toned than others so I decided to push a little bit harder before summer. And of course it is natural to fail here and there however as I said balance is a key. I have been focusing on 5 simple steps that are helping me to get that bikini body.

  1. Hot water with Lemon – This is an old trick that always makes a difference. I have always been doing it however in the last few weeks I have increased the amount and I also drink few cups a day. It helps to detoxify your body and speeds up metabolism. Very cheap and simple step how to get flatter tummy.
  2. Weight and Fitness Vitamins – I used to be a huge fan of food supplements and then I had a long break until now. This is the easiest thing you can do for yourself is to get some good food supplement that will intensify your workouts and diet. I have been using Fat and Carb blocker from Super Smart. And I have also been using Appetite Control Formula. Now is the best time ever as they will really make a difference before holiday. I eat one pill of each with breakfast and then lunch. I have noticed results already during 3rd week of using them. The Appetite Control vitamin is brilliant and my cravings have been reduced massively especially in the evenings. You can get these 15 % off with a discount code GLAM1805 (not valid on products that are already in some promotion offer).
  3. Dry body brushing – If you want to minimise cellulite to create more toned image of yourself body brushing is the way. I have been always quite lazy to do this but again it is the easiest and cheapest method however with summer approaching fast I have been doing this daily before bath or shower. The skin definitely feels softer and I know that increasing blood circulation can only benefit me. And you can also start to use body peelings regularly.
  4. Working out – I used to be an absolute workout freak. I used to teach spinning and on some weeks that would mean 8 classes in 7 days. Wow. Now with a child things are little bit more tricky however I have been working out at home or running with a buggy. I can highly recommend Kayla Itsines workouts that are short and effective. If you have not tried Jillian Michaels 30 day shred that is also life changer if you want to lose weight urgently before holidays. I also go running with a buggy or take long walks and added weekly challenges e.g. squat challenge, pelvic workouts etc. It is about doing that extra to push yourself a bit more.
  5. Get enough sleep, do not think about losing weight too much and eat clean – Another quite tricky thing if you have a child is to get enough sleep. I used to use Liam’s naps purely for work and now in the last few weeks I have been trying to nap with him a bit more. He is an early riser and I am talking 5 am sometimes even earlier so if I want to make sure I sleep the naps are required. And remember do not feel guilty if you slip or have a big dinner here and there, bit of ice cream or lot of wine. The guilt is the worse and it is key that you feel good about yourself. The cleaner you eat the better. Just try to cut processed food and eat fresh. You will achieve results much faster than just counting calories and they will also be more permanent.

So please join me on my little fitness journey and let me know how you get on. The discount offer on the Super Smart supplements is valid until end of June 2018. Good luck everybody.

If you want to see more about my journey watch my video here.

Po letech muzu rict, ze jsem zacala mit rada svoje telo. To je pro nekoho, kdo mel posedlost vahou a hubnutim opravdu velky zlom. To vite, ze to obcas resim, ale kdo me zna pred par lety pochopi. Nemluvila jsem o nicem jinem a cvicila jako silena. Byla jsem takova dietova kralovna, ktera stejne koncila tak, ze nebyla az tak hubena a mrzuta z hladu. LOL 

Kazdopadne ted uz vim, ze je vse o balancu a ze nic se nema prehanet. Je dulezite byt spokojeny a stastny. Ted po diteti jsem se pred dovolenou rozhodla trosku zabrat, i kdyz se mi uprimne moc nechce. Radsi bych si sedla kazdy vecer ke sklence vina a dala si hamburger LOL. Ale techto par kroku a zmen me nezabije a jsou vlastne uplne jednoduche. Jak rikam, balanc je dulezity. 

  1. Tepla voda s citronem – Tento stary trik zminuju snad v kazdem videu. Teplou vodu s citronem piju rano na lacno. Je to super vec a pomaha se zbavit spatneho v tele a nastartuje metabolismus. Ted pred dovolenou jsem se rozhodla zvysit davky a davam si dalsi alespon jeden salek behem dne. Je to skvely zpusob jak se take zbavit tuku na brise. Coz je po diteti moje kriticka partie.
  2. Potravinove doplnky podporujici hubnuti – Drive jsem uzivala potravinove doplnky ve velkem. Pak jsem prestala a rikala jsem si, ze si telo necham radit samo a spolu s vyvazenou stravou to pujde. Ale ted kdyz jsem se rozhodla zabrat a zacala pouzivat tyto produkty ze Super Smart Vitamins a jsou oba skvele. Pouzivam Fat and Carb Blocker, ktery zabranuje vstrebavani tuku. A takhle kdyz chcete urgentne zhubnout je to opravdu neco, co vam pomuze rychleji dosahnout vysledku. A dalsi vyborna vec je Appetite Control Vitamin, ktery snizuje chute a to hlavne vecer. Davam si jednu tabletu s snidani a druhou na obed a uz treti tyden jsem videla prvni vysledky. Momentalne muzete pouzit slevovy kod na jakekoli vitaminy ze Super Smart a to 15 % – GLAM1805. Tento kod plati jenom na produkty, ktere nejsou jiz ve sleve a je platny do konce Cervna 2018. 
  3. Kartacovani problemovych partii – Dalsi stary a levny trik, ktery zlepsuje krevni obeh a take pusobi dobre na celulitidu. Pokud zlepsite stav sve celulitidy, tak telo pak vypada hned jinak. Je dulezite nechat krev proudit a k tomu staci se na sucho kartacovat treba pred sprchou. Ted uz to delam nekolikaty tyden a uprimne vam reknu, ze jsem nekdy pekne lina, ale vzdy se presvedcim, ze tech par minut me nezabije .
  4. Hybejte se – Ja jsem driv cvicila opravdu hodne a ted s Liamkem je to horsi, protoze nemam hlidani a manzel se vraci z prace opravdu pozde, takze cvicim doma a chodim behat s kocarem. Hrozne se mi osvedcily treninky s Kaylou Itsines, jsou kratke a efektivni. Dale muzu doporucit 30 day Shred s Jillian Michaels, za 4 tydny se vam hodne upravi postava. Ale ted jsem zabrala jeste vic a pridavam si ruzne tzv “weekly challenges” napriklad 100 leh sedu denne apod. Jak rikam je treba trosku pridat, pokud chcete videt vysledky za par tydnu. 
  5. Spanek, nevycitat si nic a jist “ciste” – Spanek je dulezity a to i kdyz chcete hubnout. Liam se budi hodne brzo a driv jsem pokazde kdyz sel spat pres den pracovala, ted se snazim si jit lehnout s nim a je to super. Citim se lip. Dulezite je take nevycitat si kazde sousto a kdyz ujedete nechat to jit. Ja treba mela ted sileny vikend – vecere, vino, dorty LOL ale co, dalsi den muzu zacit zase spravne. A snazte se jist cerstve potraviny, co nejmene zpracovanych produktu. To zabira nejvice a hlavne si vahu udrzite. 

Takze do toho pojdte klidne se mnou, mame jeste par tydnu do prazdnin a to se da hodne zmenit. Slevovy kod na vitaminy plati do konce cervna 2018. Preji hodne uspechu a hodne sil. 

A pokud chcete videt vic, mrknete na moje video na tohle tema.

Fighting post baby issues with GP Nutrition

Sometimes I wish I could be one of those women that said they fit in their jeans two weeks after having a baby and left the hospital lighter than before getting pregnant. Or one of those women who say their baby slept through the night at 12 weeks. And trust me there are lot of people I know that had it this way. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.

Six months later I can finally fit in my jeans but I am still not there and I am up 10 times a night whilst I need to look after a child and run fully this blog. I need a fully functional body, I need energy and I need to lose weight. Who doesn’t?  As these are typical post baby issues most women have to deal with. Well, I cannot get more sleep as there is nobody to look after my child. I have no family here or nanny and my husband leaves 6:30 in the morning for work and comes back at 7 the earliest.

There is a next option that would definitely help and that is to eat clean food. As you can see I have gathered few books over the time and I know exactly how body works. It is about giving your body the right nutrition and balance everything out. It is a longterm solution for healthy body, great skin and sufficient amount of energy. However, these things can be so hard to maintain especially with lack of time. And then there is the other option to try to help and support your clean eating with supplements of different types. So I have partnered with GP Nutrition to try their offering to help me to fight all my post baby issues.

If you go on their site you have the option to do a test what programmes are the most suited to your needs. After doing the test I discovered (which is not a surprise at all) that my top ones are programmes SLIM Me, RESTORE Me and BOOST Me. These should really help to bring the best to my body and help to increase endurance, restore vitality, stabilise sleep patters and also balance my nutrition.

It is honestly perfect solution for busy lifestyle. Yes in my head I am always about cooking super clean dinners but the time does not let me to do it. Also on the days when I had an awful night with the baby I tend to eat badly and grab pizza instead of beetroot salad. I am sure you know the story.

What I loved about the package when it arrived was that the brand enclosed very clear intro about each programme but also easy instruction of how to use them. I am the laziest person when it comes to reading about these things so it was very handy. Second great thing is the packaging. No more excuses that the box is too big as everything is split into smaller sachets so you can take these with you. It is perfect even for a small bag or travelling. Very smart right?

And if you ask me if all this works? Yes, I have definitely seen some improvements and I have only been using these for two weeks or so. The biggest different I have noticed is when I used My Gel from the SLIM Me programme I feel my cravings are gone and also I am not that hungry. Isn’t that what we need after all?


Nekdy si preju, abych mohla rict, ze jsem jedna z tech zen, co se dva tydny po porodu vlezla do starych dzinu a odchazela z nemocnice s min kily nez pred otehotentnim. A nebo jedna z tech, kterym miminko spi celou noc uz od dvanacti tydnu. A sama mam ve svem okoli nekolik takovych zenskych. Ja to  bohuzel nejsem. 

A o sest mesicu pozdeji konecne muzu prohlasit, ze se vlezu do starych dzinu (i kdyz to jeste zdaleka neni ono) a hlavne jsem vzhuru v prumeru tak sestkrat za noc. O to je to tezsi, kdyz prakticky nemate materskou, protoze uz po dvou tydnech jsem jela naplno s timto blogem. A verte mi, ze je to prace na plny uvazek. Spanek nespanek telo musi fungovat. Jako kazda mama musim rano vstat (nekdy i ve ctyri) a uz jede klasicky kolotoc – dite, jidlo, pleny a to vse bez chuvy, babicky, sestry a jedinou oporou je muz, ktery vyrazi do prace 6:30 a vraci se nejdrive 7. 

Jak vidite za nejakou dobu jsem shromazdila nejakou literaturu o vyzvive, jidelnicku apod. A presne vim jak telo funguje. Princip je jednoduchy a da se rici, ze dosahnout idealni vahy, dostatku energie, krasne pleti a zdravi je hlavne o jidle. Jde o to se vyhybat polotovarum a jist nutricne vyvazena jidla v nich je jenom to co si telo dokaze opravdu odebrat a vzit to nejlepsi. Je to trosku slozitejsi, ale to si samy muzete precist a zjistit. Kazdopadne tyto veci muzou byt slozite, pokud mate uspechany zivotni styl jako ja. A pak existuje druha moznost a to podporit vase “zdrave” stravovani vyzivovymi doplnky. A to hlavne pokud jsou vytvoreny na presne podobnem principu jako “clean eating”. A proto jsem se spojila s GP Nutrition, ktera nabizi nekolik ruznych programu. A spousta z nich vam pomuze se zbavit presne takovych problemu jako mam ja po diteti. 

Na zaklade testu, ktery si muzete udelat na jejich strankach, jsem zjistila, ze nejvhodnejsi programy pro me budou SLIM Me, RESTORE Me a BOOST Me. A neni to snad ani prekvapeni. Diky neprospanym nocim potrebuju vytrvalost, zvyseni energie, zvysit kvalitu spanku a take upravit svoji zivotospravu. Nemyslim si, ze jim uplne spatne, ale napriklad v ty dny, kdy mam za sebou krusnou noc a ceka me spousta prace a schuzek a to jeste s ditetem velmi casto sklouznu k zabijakum jako je pizza, kava, vino apod. Bohuzel. 

Po vybrani nejvhodnejsi programu pro vas vam bude balicek dorucen a k nemu jsou prilozeny take instrukce a benefity vaseho programu. To se mi strasne libilo, protoze vse vypada prehledne a strucne a ja jsem ten nejhorsi clovek co se tyce procitani si nejakych letaku a vyhledavani toho, jak se vyrobek pouziva. Dalsi vec, ktera me nadchla je tak baleni. Nemusite se vymlouvat na to, ze vam produkt prisel ve velke krabici, kterou nechce tahat sebou. Vse je rozdeleno do mensich baleni, ktere si muzete vzit kazde rano ci do letadla. Jsou tak kompaktni, ze se jednoduse vlezou i do male kabelky. 

A po vyzkouseni techto programu musim prohlasit, ze jsem spokojena. Nejvice jsem si vsimla toho, ze kdyz opravdu pravidelne pouzivam My gel z programu SLIM Me, ze mam mensi zavaly chuti na sladke a vubec mensi hlad. A o tom prave je vyvazena strava a dulezite veci jako vyvazeni hladiny cukru v krvi. Vsechny tyto produkty jsou navrhnuty tak, aby vase telo bylo vyvazene a pokud jste jako, ze nemate cas si pokazde pripravit super zdrave jidlo, GP Nutrition je skvele reseni jak do tela dostat dulezite prvky a zbavit se ruznych problemu a to nejen tech po porodu. 

Pokud vas produkty zaujaly, muzete je poridit se slevou 10 %, kdyz zadate kod Glamazon1.

LOVE Glamazon xoxo
