Fitgirlcode was started by myself and my best friend Chris. When we started Fitgirlcode we wanted to inspire ourselves to get healthy and fit, and what happened in this process is that we inspired a lot more people to do the same. We received a couple of e-mails from you guys asking us what we do to get in shape. Not just tips and tricks but what we eat, how we train and what we do. You asked for a personal exercise and food log. Well…here it is!
We’re all different
We used to live together, we are both short, have brown hair and are quite cheeky and energetic. However, we are also very different. Chris has a technical degree and I have a fashion background. Although we physically look a like, our bodies respond totally different to food and exercise. We are so different and that is a good thing, the world would be a boring place if we would all be the same.
Hey Chris and Aranka,
Can’t remember how i found your site on the internet but actually I’m lovin it. 😉
But i still have some questions and maybe you are not to busy so you can answer me?
Cause even though it sounds easy to say: “Just eat healthy stuff and do exercise and you’ll be fine” How did you two start? I mean what are you eating the whole day ? And with which exercises did you start? 🙂
This is one of the many and lovely requests we received and we sat together on how we could answer you guys. We are not personal trainers, nor are we health experts. We are just two girls who figured out the way to become healthy and feel better than before. And that is what we want to share with you. However, like I said in the beginning of this article, Chris and I are similar in many ways but also very different. What works for her, does not work for me. She has a different job, her body reacts different to exercise than mine. Chris eats very healthy she is true on her 80/20 rule (80 of what she eats is considered “clean”). And I am more on the 60% clean, 40% Kinder Bueno 😉
So, what works for us will not necessarily work for you. You will have to keep adjusting your food and exercise routine till it feels right, just like we had to. We did want to show you that we do eat, a lot and often might I add. So we kept our promise and filled in a food and exercise schedule for a week to show you what we have been up to. Please e-mail us your questions and we will keep blogging at your request. Also we will post more of our workout routine in video’s soon!

Explanation: Elevator sports is the name of a gym we work out. It is a total body workout for 1,5 hours and burns 1000 calories. We lift weights; do HIIT (High-intensity interval training), cardio, and squats. Everything is at your own pace and level.
