My Sports

Hallo ihr Lieben,

ich habe mir vorgenommen in der Zukunft ein bisschen über das Thema Sport und Ernährung zu schreiben und mich mit euch auszutauschen. Ich bin kein Profi was diese Sachen angeht, aber ich glaube, es könnte eine Menge Spaß machen, auch eure Meinung dazu zu hören und vielleicht verratet ihr mir ja den ein oder anderen Tipp!

Ich wurde schon oft gelobt für meine Figur, aber ich möchte ehrlich zu euch sein. Meine Beziehung zum Sport ist ein bisschen kompliziert. Als Kind habe ich nur einmal pro Woche Sportunterricht in der Schule gehabt. Ich war ein etwas schwächliches Kind und bin einmal sogar beim Sportunterricht ohnmächtig geworden.

Auch habe ich nicht viel draußen gespielt mit meinen Freunden, weil ich den größten Teil meiner Zeit damit verbracht habe, am Klavier zu üben.

Also wie gesagt, spielte Sport nur eine ganz kleine Rolle in meinem Leben. Erst seit ein paar Jahren bin ich in einem Fitnessstudio angemeldet, und bin zunächst zweimal die Woche hingegangen. Danach bin ich umgezogen und das Studio ist momentan relativ weit von mir entfernt. Zu Fuß muss ich 20 Minuten laufen um hin zu kommen, und weil ich mitten in der Stadt wohne, macht es auch keinen Sinn mit dem Auto zu fahren. Das würde noch länger dauern.

Ich bin sonst sehr beschäftigt und so bin ich nun auf einmal die Woche Training umgestiegen. Manchmal schaffe ich es auch nur einmal alle 14 Tage. Ich bemerke jetzt allerdings keine großen Fortschritte mehr in meiner Leistung, deshalb möchte ich eine Lösung finden, wie ich zu Hause trainieren kann.

Falls ihr da Tipps und Tricks habt, würde mich sehr freuen und wäre sehr dankbar!

Ihr fragt euch wahrscheinlich „was kann ich von einer Person über Sport lernen, wenn diese keinen Sport macht?“ Die  Idee für diesen Teils des  Blogs ist, dass ich verschiedene Programme ausprobieren werde, und darüber schreibe.  Vielleicht hilft das auch jemandem von Euch, das richtige Programm für sich zu finden.

Ich habe mittlerweile schon viel Erfahrung, was funktioniert und was nicht. Ich bin auch jemand, der sich sehr schnell sehr tiefgreifend mit neuen Sachen beschäftigt. Meine Körperliche Konstitution hat stark zugenommen und letztes Jahr habe ich sogar zum ersten Mal Skifahren ausprobiert – und das hat prima geklappt!

Ich denke, das was mir am meisten geholfen hat, fit, energetisch und schlank zu bleiben, ist meine Ernährung. Das ist wirklich ein riesiges Thema. Wenn Ihr mehr Informationen haben wollt, lest weiter den Artikel über Ernährun…(Limk) . Ich habe sehr viel darüber gelesen und mich darüber informiert. Natürlich ist das alles sehr individuell, aber ich habe nun ein für mich passendes Ernährungssystem gefunden. Und ich weiß, wie ich in sehr kurzer Zeit ein paar Kilos abnehmen kann.

Ich freue mich auch auf eure Tipps für Fitnessprogramme oder andere Sportaktivitäten. Ich bin sehr an Experimenten und einem regen Austausch interessiert!

Eure Maryna

Hi guys!

I am planning on writing a bit about sports and food and to have an exchange with you. I am all but a pro when it comes to all of that, but I thought it might be fun to get your opinions on it and probably I get some advice from you!

I have been complimented on my body some times before, but to be honest my relationship to sports is a bit complicated. As a child I exercised only once a week during school. I was a very weak kid and even passed out during gymnastic instruction.

I neither did spend a lot of time outside with my friends because I spent the most time practicing piano.

So sports only played a very little part in my life. Only since a few years I “enlisted” myself into a gym and went there twice a week. Then I moved and so the gym is now farther away from me. I have to walk for 20 minutes to get there, and because I live in the middle of the city it doesn’t make sense to drive there by car. That would take even longer.

I am pretty busy all the time with my work and that’s why I only do training now once a week. Sometimes even only once every two weeks. Meanwhile I don’t see bigger progress in my fitness anymore so I am thinking about a possibility to train at home.

If you have any advice for that I would be very happy.

Now you are beginning to ask yourself: What can I learn from a person about sports who isn’t into sports that much? Well, my idea is to try out different programs and to write about them and how they work out. Probably it helps someone to find the right program for him or her.

I tried a lot so far and so I have at least a bit of experience what works and what not. I am also a person who always digs deep into things right away. My physical constitution grew fast and last year I even tried skiing – that worked out well for me!

I think what also helped me a lot to get my physical constitution up and to stay energetic is my food. That became a huge issue for me. If you want to read more you can find the link here. I read a lot about nutrition and tried out even more myself. Of course nutrition is a very individual thing, but I found myself a way that works for me and that enables me to lose a few kilograms in very short time.

I am looking forward to your fitness advice or other sports related stuff. I am very much into experiments and a healthy exchange of ideas!

 

Yours
Maryna

  • I love your blog! However you exercise, make sure you do what you love- Mix it up, if it’s swimming, running, cross-fit, dancing.. And muscles burn calories..

  • First thing is knowing what you want to accomplish. It looks like your goal is to stay slim and trim and maximizing your energy level. You already are in great shape from what I can see so don’t go overboard with cardio because you may burn off too much. Sports are great options to stay fit, I see you have skied before so along with that option you have tennis which is great. Swimming works all muscles and racquet ball are fantastic workouts as well. Stay away from crossfit classes, it’s sort of a maniacal thing to me lol. Unless you were overweight then all of that intensity would help lose any extra pounds you might have had.

    • Thanks DJ you are right.
      My goals are to stay slim and get more energy.
      I don’t like cardio either and during summer i will do more sport outside apart from a few exercises at home!

  • Hi Maryna,
    I love training and, as far as I remember, I always trained myself; growing up of course, I had to change, remodule and reschedule my WODs, according to time, energy, goals, injuries, human relationships, and hopefully what I experienced could inspire you.

    From an aestethical point of view, you already look great, my opinion is that you don’t need to sweat blood to keep you fit, but first of all: you have to set your goal.

    Since I gave up with weightlifting, in 1996, I never went to a gym for physical training; but, apart other open air activities like play football, run, swim or cycle, I did the core of my training at home, without any equipment (calisthenics, you can find and example for women here https://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/beginning-bodyweight-strength-training-for-women), paying attention on movement and how my body reacts to exercises in order to avoid injuries.

    Given that, one of the greatest lessons I’ve learned in a life that, growing up, I fullfilled with tasks and responsibilities, is that the best time for me is the morning and a good training could be done at home, in few square meters and it doesn’t take more than 30 minutes (plus 5 to 10 for stretch and/or basic ashtanga yoga), the same time you need to go back and forth to gym. Moreover, in this way I accomplish the first task and I’ve the energy and calm for face whichever other task or challenge the fate would put on my way.

    I also spare around 2 hours for cardio activities (run/swim/cycle) on Saturday or Sunday and I only go to the gym for my martial arts training because there’s no other way to practice it.

    Diet is an important part of the training too; depending on goals, metabolism and lifestyle, choose the right foods and amount is crucial: carbs are good before cardio sessions but not for build muscles which need proteins, fruits are amazing but it’s better to avoid them in the evening due to their hi sugar, etc

    I hope that my experience could help and inspire you to live an healthier life.

    See you on instagram

    • Thanks a lot for your detailed comment!!!
      I think i would also like to do all my training in the morning hours, but i always have to teach very early so i can’t do it. But yes, you are right, everyone has to find his or her right time for sports.
