My day starts at 8 o’clock in the morning with a light breakfast and two cups of herbal tea. After that, I go for a walk with my Clooney boy during which we also do jogging for a bit. It’s kinda like a warm-up for me.

When I return home, I go out to the balcony ( turn on my favorite music), which has become a real home gym for me with all necessary types of equipment for my daily training and weight loss.
