EXERCISE “I do Becore it’s for full body toning, similar to Pilates. I go for walks and hikes whenever I’m in the mountains and I run to the bus. I love the feeling of being strong in my body as well as in my mind. I want to feel fit for fight at all times, I want that to be my mentality. I’m turning thirty this year, so it feels important to stay active.”
MOTIVATION “Freelance life doesn’t have a lot of routine, and this affects my training. But, it makes me long for it more. And since I find Becore so much fun it’s not that hard to find my motivation. I look forward to an aching body; I see it as my reward.”
PERSONALITY “Unfortunately, very spontaneous. It annoys me, but it’ because of my job."
STYLE “I like to dress in light clothing, I hate it when I feel too hot and sweaty. I’m most comfortable in a pair of tights, a sports bra and a top – that’s when I feel most flexible.”
IN MY GYM BAG “You don’t need shoes for Becore, which I’m happy not to carry around. I pack my sports bra, a top, a pair of tights and a water bottle. I’ll also bring a set of fresh underwear and skincare products for afterwards.”
One day in the life of Cecilia
07.00 “If I planned to exercise I’ll do it in the morning. I usually don’t eat much before working out, but if I’m really hungry I’ll have some yogurt and a banana.”
12.00 “For lunch I prefer to eat a big salad with salmon or chicken and I drink lots of water. For dessert I’ll have fruit, I almost always end my meals with fruit.”
15.00 “I often walk to wherever I’m going, that’s where I get my daily exercise. I’ll have a coffee or smoothie and a little snack.”
18.00 “I’ll cook dinner, usually soup. I love spinach soup with half an egg and a good crispbread sandwich.”
20.00 “My lack of routine reflects my diet as well, but I try to listen to my body instead of following a set schedule. If I’m still hungry in the evening I’ll have fruit salad, some chocolate or popcorn – and I always end my day with a cup of tea."
