Spanish gym time

Being in Spain is not an excuse for not training. I have checked out different gym clubs in Barcelona but got lost in the search because there are so many. Therefore I decided to take a one-day pass at Holmes Gym which was close to my language school. This means, I was not lost on my way.

Well, besides taking a selfie in the mirror because I did not feel like asking a random person at the gym to take a picture of me. Everyone at the gym seemed very focused not their own training which I kind of liked. This resulted in me taking a selfie without no one noticing it.

I have extremly tight hips (as you might see). Therefore I have to lie like this for a min. of two min. in order for my hips to become more flexible. It hurts like crazy but I can see a small improvement. IMG_1144

After a hard core workout I went to treat myself with some good and healthy food at “Flax & Kale” which is a must go to in Barcelona. They have healthy food, funky juices, and great coffee (and an amazing cheesecake). Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

I ordered a veggie burger, the vegan vampire juice, and a double espresso. Followed by a cheesecake and another espresso.
