I’ll admit: I’m addicted to chocolate. It’s been like that for decades. Every day I drink 3 cups of coffee, and with the coffee I need something sweet: a cookie, a chocolate, a wafer – it doesn’t matter what, it just has to be something sugary. Most people call it sweet tooth. I call it an addiction.


Lately I started to feel I like eating more of it, maybe too much of it. I also noticed that I drink a lot but remain thirsty. Weird. But after having gestational diabetes twice, I know what it means… So I decided to make a change.

My nutrition had to change, better before diabetes will change it.

I decided to cut my Sugar habits completely. I know it sounds like I’m out of my mind, but the verdict of getting diabetes must be changed – sooner than later.

So I crossed my fingers and started: No wafers, no cakes or cookies, no chocolate at all.

I cut my carbs as well in order to not encourage my body to transform the carbs into sugars.

It’s not easy. But my health comes first.

My nutrition is now based on salads in every format, soups, quinoa with a lot more vegetables, one fruit a day and lots of motivation.
I need to be more organised in order to have all the vegetables I’d want and need in the fridge, but I know I can do it.

Few weeks have passed now and I already feel the change (and even see the it 😊)

The problems I had were gone now. I still feel the need for chocolate. But I can resist it and instead I made amazing energy balls (so easy and so Yummmm) So at the moment i’ll stick to it.

If you haven’t watched That Sugar Film – go and watch it quickly. It’s so important to see it, and it shows you and your kids the huge damage the sugar can cause.

Please, listen to your body, cut the amount of sugar, eat healthy.

Mother’s Day

Mum is the only one.
She is the only one who truly care.
She is always behind the scenes.
She is a lioness, fights for her cubs.
Mum’s job never ends.
Since her kids are born – conscience was born as well.
She deserves this special day just for her, for all the hard work she’s doing. She needs to feel loved and to be spoiled on that day.

Now, as a mum I understand the meaning of being one.
I understand the meaning of giving everything you can to your children, and making the best efforts for them.
I know I am not perfect although I try to be, and sometimes I get upset and go crazy – it’s not because I love them less. The opposite – I do it because I love my kids more.
(I remember, when I was a child my mum said to me exactly the same words… but somehow back then it didn’t seem right to me. I hope my kids will understand that earlier)

So I just want to say to all the mums who read these lines: Thank you for being there for your kids.
You are the best!!! Keep doing whatever you can do for them.
You are doing a wonderful job!

To my mum I want to say special thank you for being there for me whenever I need. I love you and miss you very much!
