Health benefits of having a pet – part 2

Living with pets is great and it’s good for your health (as an animal lover, I can confirm this). I read an article that described the health benefits of living with pets and because I almost have all of the animals mentioned in the article I thought it would be nice to write about these awesome pets while comparing it to my own perspective.

In part one of this article I explained why my pets aren’t just the fluffy and feathery companions I share the house with, they’re part of my family. I also stated that with kids and pets,my family is pretty big! We couldn’t live without our pets, even though it’s a lot of work, they make our family life more fun!

Back to the benefits of owning pets. After part 1 you’re probably curious to find out more about health benefits of having a pet. In part 2 I’ll write about three more pets. Hopefully you already get to enjoy being a pet owner, if not, I hope this article might persuade you to become one!

3. Fish

Looking to bring some relaxation and calmness into your life?! Apparently, by watching fish you can distract yourself in a good way, says Dr. Becker. Many studies show that spending time in nature can improve your well-being. An aquarium or a fishpond in your garden lets you bring this in and around your house. One study showed when dental patients (that were about to undergo surgery) felt less stressed after gazing at a fish tank for 20 minutes.

Fishies2

I think this is so true. I have a fishpond with Koi’s in it (see the photo above) and I often do yoga outdoors beside the pond because it’s way more calming and relaxing. I wish I would do yoga like this every day of the year. Beside this it’s really fun to feed the fish, they’ll eat from your hands (mind you, these are not small fish, they’re huge, so it can be a bi scary haha).

On page two you can continue to read about great pets for your health.

4. Birds

Birds have been companions for humans for ages. Recently they have been recognized for bringing you health benefits says Gregg Takashima, presicent of the American association of human-animal bond veterinarians. Like fish, they offer ‘nature on demand’ so you’re basically bringing nature in and around your home by becoming a bird owner.

Keeping them is surprisingly similar to keeping cats or dogs; it’s really fun. They’re very interactive, especially the more intelligent ones. I currently have 5 birds, two ‘grown ups’ and their three hatchlings. To make the best out of their days and my playtime with them I let them fly freely every day. It makes them happy and lots of fun to interact with.

 5. Horses

Last on our list are horses! If you’re not familiar with them, they can be a bit intimidating. “By gaining control of a creature so much larger than you, you can gain control of a larger problem in life,” Dr. Becker explains. This is why horses are often used in animal-assisted therapy programs. It can even reduce stress hormones a 2014 study shows. Riding horses is a great workout; it improves balance, strength and it builds muscles.

My sister Katinka has a very sweet horse named Djinty. I can confirm that being around Djinty is a good way to relieve stress. Either through a riding lesson or by just working on her and being around the stables. She loves to be brushed, she loves to cuddle and I’ll become totally Zen in the process, it’s a win-win!

On the main photo you can see my sister giving Djinty a kiss and on this photo you can see Djinty and me!

This was part 2 of the health benefits of having a pet. As a pet with health benefits I kind of miss bunnies on this list. What do you think Fit Girls? What are your experiences with pets and the health benefits they provide? Are there more pets missing on this list? Well, let me know! As always I’m curious to find out.

20 facts about Fit Girl Safira Audrey

I noticed us Fit Girls were doing this sharing 20 facts thing and saw that it stopped somewhere so I decided to pick it up again and nominate someone else to keep it going! I think it’s always fun to learn random stuff about someone else so you’ll get to know someone a bit better. I’ll start by sharing ’20 facts about Fit Girl Safira Audrey’ first.

20 facts about Fit Girl Safira Audrey

1. I was born and raised in my hometown Gouda. I still live here and I love it!

2. My favorite country to go on holiday to is Brazil.  It truly feels like coming home when I go there. I love the pace the Brazilians live in, the kindness and warmth they carry with them.

3. I study communication and write for #FITGIRLCODE. I enjoy doing this very much! In my free time, I love stargazing, taking photos (and combining the two), hanging out with friends/family/pets and doing anything related to food (cooking, baking, eating..)!

10394516_1493293867599923_8057126928015277536_n4. I’m a foster mom and I own a mini zoo, so I guess you could call me an eager beaver. I like to work hard but I love to play hard. How do you keep yourself busy?!

5. I foster my nieces, they’re twin girls and they’ve just turned 13, yay! They’re mini Fit Girls who occasionally enjoy sports. You can’t imagine how much fun it is to live with these teenage girls <3

6. I have a weakness for animals. If I see an injured bird I will try to save it and when I spot a lost frog on the road, I’ll always try to bring it back to safety.

7. I don’t like going on holidays because I don’t like leaving my mini zoo behind. When I end up going on a holiday, I’ll video call with my dogs, bunnies and birds haha! What kind of funny things do you do on holidays?

8. I also have a weakness for humans. I studied social work before my current study and I worked with elderly people and children with disabilities.

9. I’m a middle child (don’t they say we’re the coolest haha?!) I have two older brothers (Reinaldo & Michel), a younger sister (Katinka) and a younger brother (Bjorn). Having all these brothers is what got me into football!

10. This is not really my natural hair color; well it kind of is but every summer my hair gets lighter because of the sun and I color it darker again. I have naturally curly/wavy hair but I straighten it because it’s so much easier to handle then.

5 inspirational #THICKFIT girls on Instagram

Just like I like my money right where I can see it, hanging from my closet, or on my shoe shrine represented by some 9 inch platform heels,  I like my bones with a little bit of  meat on it. Ok I lied, I like a whole lot of meat, especially when it is accompanied by muscle. When scrolling through my instagramfeed,  I’ve noticed this preference also applies to the accounts where I get my inspiration from. So I thought I’d share with you 5 inspirational #THICKFIT girls on Instagram.

1. Shaineree (@iamshisha)
This lady right here, hailing from Rotterdam, the Netherlands gives a lot of people a run for their money when it comes to showing how determined she is. I can only respect that and I salute her. Wearing the #THICKFIT crown like a #BOSS  and keeping it real all day every day.

2. Lita  (@followthelita)
When I say #QUEEN, I mean Lita. I mean her body, her drive, those thighs! Lita has been an inspiration from day one and I just love her positivity. Did I say love her thighs already? 🙂

3. Aisha (@proudtobeaisha)
Please allow me to introduce to you, also from Rotterdam,  Aisha. She just looks absolutely awesome, is so motivated, lifts heavy- ass- weights, has been around for a long while and oozes positive vibes. I like me some Aisha. Follow, follow, follow!

10 things to do while being injured and stuck at home

You got injured! What now?! When you’re injured, it’s especially important you take enough time to let your body heal. With a serious injury, you often find yourself resting more and exercising less or maybe not even at all. You’ll end up being stuck at home a lot more, bored out of your mind. To make it more fun, I made this funny list of things to do when stuck at home while being injured.

10 things to do while being injured and stuck at home

I’m currently stuck at home, I recently broke my rib by coughing too long and too hard. Oh yes this actually happened, it’s not a joke. It’s totally possible and very painful (don’t try this at home haha). It’s really annoying too because I can’t do a lot of things that I would like to do. Fortunately there are still things that I can still do. Such as; inline skating, low intensity weight training & light yoga. Always consult your doctor when you have an injury and you want to find ways to stay active.

I can’t run (I’m really bummed out about this) and I shouldn’t do any contact sports though I have to admit I played a friendly match of football with my friends (I’m only human). Being stuck at home more often than normally can get really boring. I found several ways to ease my boredom and I’ll share ten of those ways with you in this article, yay!

  1. Dress up

Don’t let it go(at)! If you look the part, you’ll feel the part!

  1. Tidy up your house

An organized home is a happy home!

  1. Find your special talent or learn a new craft

Remember to take it easy though, don’t hurt yourself in your excitement lol.

Continue to page 2 for more funny ways to keep busy when stuck at home!

  1. Give your pets some extra attention

Now remember, don’t smother, be gentle 😉 If you don’t have any pets, borrow one of a friend or a family member!

  1. Invite some awesome friends over

and play games with them, boardgames are optional too!

  1. Take a selfie or two

Do this in the garden, so you’ll get some extra vitamin D. Don’t forget to smile and show your dimples!

  1. Prepare a healthy meal for your family

No matter how delicious the dish is, don’t be greedy, share it!

Continue to page 3 for more awesome ways to keep yourself occupied! Exciting! YAY!

  1. Try some light yoga

Yoga is so much fun, it improves flexibility and it builds muscle strength. If this looks too complicated, just stretch!

  1. If you really want to exercise (because you can’t sit still like yours truly)

Do it moderately and responsibly, ask your doctor for advice about what you can and can’t do!

  1. You can always take a nap

When everything else fails, take a nap. There’s nothing a good nap can’t fix!

I hope you won’t need this list of activities, but if you do, I wish you the best of luck and hopefully you’ll have a quick recovery! As always, I’m curious to hear from you. How do you fit girls cope with being stuck at home because of an injury? What are your favorite things to do?

xoxo

My Christmas wishlist

It’s almost Christmas and that means it’s time for presents! I love to make wishlists. That’s why I wanted to share my wishlist with you guys! 

 

 Reading books

I love to read. When I’m reading I have a moment to myself. I always get lost in the story and it feels like I’m in another world. My favorite writers are Nicci French. They write the most exciting books that you just can’t put away. You  can’t stop reading! This year I would like to have Complicit.

 

 

 

Jumping Ropejumping rope

As a kid, I loved my jumping rope. Good news, jumping a rope is pretty good for you. Fit Girl Roos already wrote an article why you should try jumping rope. This article definitely motivated me to try it! I found this beautiful jumping rope from Nike.

My hair always gets in the way when I’m working out. This headband is perfect and very fashionable! I can even wear this headband during the day combined with a casual outfit or I can wear it to a festival.

 

 

 

Perfume

By wearing some perfume you can feel really special and chique. This odour is an absolute favourite of mine. Too bad it’s so expensive… Luckily, here’s a little discount…  🙂

Print Jacket

Jackets are perfect for cold weather! The best thing about this jacket is that you can wear it inside out. If you don’t feel like wearing a print, you can always wear a black jacket. This jacket shows you the true meaning of multifunctional.

 

 

 

 

 

Gym Bra

If you are going for a workout in the gym and want to feel fashionable and comfortable, this gym bra is perfect for you. Combine it with a long tights or a muscle tee and show your strength!

Hoodie Yoga Comfy

Doing some yoga poses can be really relaxing after or before a stressful day. But some days drinking wine in yoga pants sounds like a way better idea. Go pour yourself a glass (or two)!

 

 

 

 

Long Sleeve

When it’s summer you easily go for a tank top or a T-shirt. Because the winter is much colder, you can go for a long sleeve. Nice and warm. Plus, this nice color will pimp up every outfit!

 

 

 

Jenny’s review on Jogha

Jenny from Healthyfans made an awesome review on Jogha: the new fashionable sports brand. Because we liked it so much, we decided to translate it and to share it with you! 

Jenny: Started as an idea, evolved into a garment to help you discover the badass within. I couldn’t really believe it. Your own brand of clothing?! That’s so awesome! Aranka, I am so incredibly proud of you. A couple of weeks ago, me and some other Fit Girls such as Annemerel, Esmee & Laura were asked to do a fotoshoot for Jogha. These pictures would be used for a spread in Cosmopolitan Magazine. If I wanted to join? HELL YEAH! Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it that day. I was really bummed out, but I had to do an important exam.. ARGH!

Winter Wish List

Hi Fit Girls! This article is going to focus on my winter favorites, I will share what I am loving and wish to have for this winter season! I hope this will give you some inspiration for your winter outfits. With no further due, lets get this started!

Something that I have been wishing to have is this amazing set of  headphones. They are cute, soft, they keep you warm while listening to your favorite songs! They are ideal since here in The Netherlands I bike everywhere, so it’s a good way to combine comfort, fun and fashion!

 

DSC_2398kopie kopieThe #FITGIRLCODE beanie! I love it, warm and comfortable! I usually wear it before and after going to the gym, and I get to say “beanie there, done that” every time I complete a heavy workout! This beanie is great for cold and rainy weather to keep you comfortable in style.

 

This blanket cardigan with a fun textured fabric, open front and wide-cut kimono sleeves is perfect for those days (Mondays), which are hard to get out bed! You can still feel comfortable warm and fashionable with it! Also It would look very good with the #FITGIRLCODE beanie!

Moving on to more sporty items, these working out tights are just great for winter. The marble print is amazing but it makes me think of ice and just reminds me the movie Frozen! Easy to combine with colorful shirts and trainers! Does’t it look awesome?

 

Here are the colorful trainers I would combine with my winter working out cloths. With a tone of grey and pink these fly knit trainers are lightweight and perfect for the gym!

 

Very Cute things right? It’s nice to dream about nice new things! 🙂 On the other hand what I wish the most for this winter season, is to feel happy, see progress in my fitness journey and see my family and friends happy! Like we all do 🙂 So ladies, what do you think? Cute items right? Let us know what is your winter wish list!

We are proud to present to you… Jogha!

You might have already seen hints of it on our Instagram account or Facebook… And now the day has finally come to launch my baby: Jogha, a new luxury sportswear brand. Jogha started as an idea and evolved into a garment to help you discover the badass within. Check out the story behind Jogha now!

Jogha was created out of the need of women to have both a high quality and fashionable sports outfit without having to compromise on either of these two aspects. Women who want to look good and get the best out of themselves, during their work out and after it. With these women as its muse, Jogha now launches its debut Badass Collection. The collection consists of fashionable prints straight of the runway, designed to mix and match and become your favorite outfit. The high-end materials make up the perfect fit and the moisture management materials ensure a stylish look and ultimate comfort during your workout.

If that’s not awesome enough for you, let me explain how this idea came into my head and how it evolved into something actually tangible. I have always been an entrepreneurial spirit and cherished the dream to start my own business someday. When I was looking for fashionable sportswear, I could find lots of high quality gear but nothing that matched my inner fashiolista. So I decided… Why not make it myself?

The ones I cannot thank enough in this journey are all of you. Yes, you, you who are reading this right now. You Fit Girls have inspired me and have given me insights into what women are looking for in their ideal sportswear. And that’s how Jogha came into existence, a brand for strong women who chase their dreams. I think it’s safe to say that we all believe that if you feel good in what you wear, you can excel in what you do. Let’s excel in the gym. In our yoga class. In our daily morning run. Let’s discover all of our badasses within!

SO, #FITGIRLCODE COMMUNITY: THIS ONE IS FOR YOU: WWW.JOGHA.COM

 

Love, 

 

Aranka

Summer wear: Playsuits

Last minute vacation to Aruba. And I totally was not prepared at all. The weather has been so different that I have my winter and my summer clothes hanging together in my closet. It was only then when I realised that I do not have that much beachwear at all! 

There is this little cute store in Rotterdam called “Imagine by Kim”. I came there the day before my flight and I wanted to have something classy for a night out, something easy to wear and something for the beach. I found this amazing playsuit a.k.a. romper. I could use it for all three purposes: classy, easy to wear and also wearable on the beach! This is the first time I bought a playsuit and I kinda fell in love with it. They are so easy and the only thing you have to do is add the right accessories. Since then, I’ve been looking like crazy for more cute playsuits – here is a selection of my faves.

Shopping time!

 

Playsuit1

 

Asos

This tropical playsuit can go to any sunny destination! Wear it with your flipflops or wedgeheels. This would have been perfect in Aruba!

 

 

playsuit2

 

 

Nelly

This one is still cute in the fall or on a lazy late summer night.. I really love this one. Must. Have. It.

 

 

 

Playsuit3

Asos

Oh my, this might be my favorite. I bought one quite similar actually! This can be worn all summer long, but also afterwards when you go out for a party or drinks. Love it!

And here is mine! What do you think? I am a big fan of playsuits, the only downside to them is that you have to get half naked  if you want to go to the bathroom 😉

 

 

Fashionable Fitbit Collection by Tory Burch

Us Fit Girls, like to keep track of our progress as best as we can and there are several ways and gadgets to help us do that. There’s the Nike FuelBand, the Samsung GearFit, the Fitbit, the jawbone and so on…. Another thing they have in common, besides counting calories and telling the time is that they are plain dull and some quite …ehmm…ugly. Fortunately, there’s now a fashionable Fitbit collection by Tory Burch out on the market and it looks pretty cute! 

434439-fitbit-tory-burch-accessories

Fitbit goes fash

This is how the Fitbit wristbands looked like before Tory decided to give them a fashionable upgrade. The thing with these types of bands is that they tend to have this cheap feel to them (even though they are obviously not), they are dull and unattractive and just don’t complete the look unless you’re sweating at the gym or out for a run! Since you can essentially plug the actual measuring device from one band to another, why not give it a better look?

Rainbow Swirl Miyogi

A little while ago I woke up to a fantastic surprise. My boyfriend wanted to surprise me with a Miyogi! It was my birthday and he wanted to make me a birthday Miyogi. I was blown away by his sweet act, but mostly by the choice of ingredients. He knows how to make a girl happy and shine like a rainbow. Here’s why!

Chocolate is a girl’s best friend, we all know that. My boyfriend said to me: Today is your birthday so you must cheat!! He added a secret ingredient what made this Miyogi the best B-day Miyogi ever!!! The secret ingredient: M&M’s. Oh how i love these, especially the ones with the peanuts inside. Once the M&M’s were added to the Miyogi, it started to colour the yogurt as well. It was so colourful what made it taste extra good!! That’s why I called this Tizi’s Miyogi: Rainbow swirl

B-day happiness in the morning

The fruits in this miyogi are: Apple, Banana. Secret ingredient: M&M’s
M&M’s These colour coated, chocolate filled, button shaped candies. Once known as “Smarties”, Mars Company started producing these babies in 1941. The original once are filled with only chocolate and nowadays there are twenty-seven different kinds of fillings: milk chocolatedark chocolatewhite

Happy BFFF Day

You workout together, sweat together, motivate each other and share all the ups-and-downs together. But this time you want to give her something more than a high five. Surprise your BFFF with something nice to show her that you’re proud to have a friend like her. Tell her she’s the best and motivate her to keep going. But what do you give a Fit Girl? I made you a small list for a big smile 🙂
