Every morning you look at yourself in the mirror with a smile or with some criticism.
You want to reach your goal of being fit, toned, sexy or just trying to lose that extra bit on the hips.
Whatever your goal is, do not give up.
You are worth every bit. The road to your goal, might not be always that easy but is possible.

Concentrate on what is important for you. There will be friends, colleagues or family that will try to pull you down. All because they do not understand what you do or why you want to reach your goals. Do not focus on them. Yes, it can hurt but that should not stop you.


Trust that you can do this. Even when you see all these gorgeous women. Everybody walks their own road. Success in any form, does not happen overnight. Trust, know you will get there no matter how long it will take.
See yourself as the person you want to be.
When your vision becomes clear so too do the steps you need to take to make it happen. See all that is beautiful. Don`t concentrate on all the `defaults`.
Be true to yourself. Be totally and exactly who you are. Show yourself, shine your light upon the world.
Believe in yourself and all that you are capable of. Every positive step that you make, will inspire other women to follow and do the same.
The road to your goal can be the inspiration for others.


Dates and Coconut Brownies. No sugar no flour

Dates and Coconut Brownies.


In the morning I have my ritual of eating my healthy muesli. And for lunch a salad or meat/chicken with vegetables.

Later on the day I drink a coffee, preferable with something sweet.

Sweet snacks, to stop my craving. Then I think about chocolate….mmm. This is for me a no go. So I eat a piece of fruit instead. But doing this everyday gets a bit boring. A woman needs her chocolate, especially at her time of the month. When it is that time and I don`t eat chocolate, well look out. I can get a bit aggressive. So to save others and myself, I made these brownies.

The sweet base, comes from dates. The fine structure is made with shredded coconut and finely chopped/grained almond.

The brownies were already a success, when my kids were licking the spoon with dough.

When the brownies were ready, I wanted to photograph them and  share this recipe with you. So I prepared my photoshoot. Went to the kitchen to get a knife. When I came back, there was a piece missing! Looked at my youngest son, his mouth was full with chocolate. I could only laugh. I guess the brownies tasted good and approved by my kids. I went ahead and tasted also a small piece, my eyes closed automatically as I tasted the sweet chocolate. YES. I found a snack that I could take to work on and eat with my afternoon coffee or tea!


Makes 10 brownies

  • 200g dates
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • ½ cup ground almonds
  • Handfull of your favorite unsalted nuts, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup raw cacao
  • 2 table spoons coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt



  1. Start by preheating the oven to 180C.
  2. Cut the dates in small pieces.
  3. Put the small pieces of dates in your food processor together with the 3 eggs. Blend until smooth.
  4. Add backing powder, coconut and almond and cacao.
  5. Place into a lined baking dish.
  6. Sprinkle your favorite nuts on the mixture, press very softly into mixture, but still visible.
  7. Cook for about twenty minutes, until you can pierce the brownie cake with a fork bringing it out dry.
  8. Remove the tray and allow it to cool for about ten minutes – this is really important as it needs this time to stick together!
  9. Remove the brownies from the tray, leaving it another few minutes before cutting them into squares.

For some of us breakfast is not always the most relaxing moment of the day. Especially when you have kids that need to go to school. Before we run out of the door, we eat mostly Bircher Muesli. Normally we eat our Bircher Muesli with fruit as raspberries, banana and blueberries.

This time we looked at all the great fruit that we had and changed our muesli routine by using totally other fruit.



Serves 2


  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • ½ cap coconut water
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 papaya
  • 2 passion fruits
  • 1 ripe banana



The night before, put the oats, into a bowl or container, pour over the coconut water and coconut milk. Mix well, then cover and pop into the fridge overnight.

In the morning, chop the banana, into little chunks.

Slice the papaya open, take out the seeds and chop (don`t use the skin).

Mix well.

Cut the passion fruit in half and drizzle over you muesli.


A great meal to eat at home, or to take with you in a little container.

Tip: Make more, so you only need to take in the morning what you need.

You can make as well different muesli and safe in the refrigerator. This way your muesli tastes different every day.

Everything you wanted to know about Anja Zeidler, but where afraid to ask…

anja lekkertje maar dikke been

Anja is a well know fitness model in Switzerland. Fitness is her passion.

She started her modelling career as a young girl of 14 years old and appeared in different magazines like MAXIM, FHM and GQ.

At the age of 18, the ”fitness life style” was something that Anja started to love more and more.

Along with the new lifestyle, came a great fit body, that did not necessarily fit in with the classical modelling look. This did not stop Anja. As a smart young woman she focused more on the fitness part of modelling. This was with great success. She appeared in different fitness magazines all over the world.

Anja started out her fitness regime with high intensity workouts. To be more toned, she started to lift more weights.

When she is not in a photo-shoot, or doing other great projects, she can be found in the gym. Lifting weights for herself or helping other women and men to be more fit.










Anja wants to get the max out of her body and loves to inspire others to do the same.



What is the secret to get such a great body?

There is no secret. It’s not easy, because if it would be, everyone would do it. It takes a lot of discipline & willpower. The secret – if you want to call it one – is to believe in yourself, never give up & “Keep Going”.


Exercises that Anja does:

  • Weight training
  • High Intensity Training
  • Mixing up the training. Otherwise the body gets accustomed to the same exercises. Finding the right mix is important.
  • A good night sleep.
  • Massages and stretching.


How do you combine your business life with training?

Sometimes I ask myself the same question – its not easy to give 100% everywhere, but I do! So many people complain. They say they can’t make the time besides their work to go to the gym or cook some clean food. I might be even busier then them and I can make it – always.

It`s not about having time, it`s about making time.


Do you have any special goals for 2015?

Working out is always part of my life, that’s for sure. But this year I really focus on my business. I launched my own clothing line, my own Online-Fitness-Program & hopefully soon my own Supplement-Line for Women. My goal for 2015 is to get a couple “Self-Runners” started, that I can travel the world again in 2016! 

What will you generally eat on one day?

It depends weather I have a shooting for an event coming up, or if I’m “off season” & am putting on more muscle. Right now I’m leaning out, so I eat a bit less then I would eat during the winter.  A typical day starts with a cup of Oatmeal & Egg whites. For lunch I have mostly chicken breast & sweet potato with some vegetables. As a snack I have some good fats, as almonds or ½ avocados with a protein shake. Dinner, I mostly go for fatty fish as Salmon or Tuna and have a side of asparagus with that. To lean out I recommend to drop the total calorie intake, stay high on protein, moderate on carbs & keep the unsaturated fats high enough, they are important for women!


Anja likes to use her six pack bag, it is very practical.

We hope to cooperate more with Anja in the future as it has been fun to work with such a professional that is passionate about her own as well as  other peoples fitness lifestyles.
