Sore af

I managed to squeeze in two workouts today, since it’s my day off. In the morning I did strength training, thereafter I hiked up a mountain with a friend. I’m pleased to say I’ll go to bed feeling amaze with todays effort. I’ll sleep like a baby. 


Today’s dinner was ofcourse packed with beans, protein and veggies.


It’s time to grow my muscles even more. I can’t wait to see my body continue to shape itself into the figure I desire it to. I’m truly addicted. 

Good night. Xx!

InspirationĀ 

I just came home from an early morning legday. It felt great, and it’s a better collection of equipment here. I appreciate that tremendously, since the school I went to didn’t have much to choose from. I didn’t complain tho, it’s about being creative and making the most of what you have. 

Since it’s a rainy day here, why not share some inspiration. 50% because I need it myself, and 50% cause’ you seem to enjoy these posts!


Have a great day!

My love

After two weeks I finally got a gym membership again and it feels SO good. Excercising definitely makes a big difference regarding my overall happiness. It’s like my daily hour of antidepressant, lol. No but seriously… 

I joined a gym that’s open 24/7, so that I can work out regardless of my sleep issues- which is the one and only reason I joined that gym! I’m happy with it so far and I look forward to keep building my muscles! I can finally have some peace of mind, knowing I’m back in the process.

Mondays

My biggest struggle during the weekends is not screwing up my sleep routine. As we speak I’m on my 27th hour without sleep, because I screwed up an layed wide awake all night with no chance of reaching sweet dreams. 


When these incidents happen it ruins SO much of my start of the week, whom I prefer to start of with a motivated bang! Oatmeal, coffee and a good workout early on before heading to work energized.

Keep in mind that I rarely drink and party, and no, I didn’t do it this weekend either. This doesn’t just occure on sunday nights but regularly at any day of the week. Does someone else have insomnia, and how do you cope (without pills)? I’ve been doing guided meditation but the wifi sucks in my room…

Since last time

…I’ve started working again at Avis. I worked there last year too, but not long enough to learn everything fully, and be confident in the computer system. I’m better than I’ve ever been tho, so it looks promising! 

…Had some quality time with my nearest friends and family, which has been a true joy! Unfortunately, I’m a sucker at remembering to take photos while I’m at it. I’m working on it and I’m going to get better! 


…Cut my hair a lot shorter than it was! Even though it’s something to get used to because it’s so different, I’m glad it’s done. I feel refreshed now that I don’t carry with me all the split ends and fuzz everywhere I go. 


…Read two books, “The Alchemist” and “#GIRLBOSS”. They were both a good read and you have absolutely nothing to lose by reading them too. It was wonderful to get an humorous and honest insight of Sophia Amoruso’s journey. And Paulo Cohelo serves words of wisdom on every page of “The Alchemist”. 


…Had some great outdoor workouts. I’ve mostly done cardio, so I’ll admit I’m worried about my booty gains… But it’s all good because I’ll get a gym membership tomorrow, and I’m SO stoked! I literally cannot wait to get back to the weights!!



Xx!

Norway’s national day!

Yesterday was so much fun! Magnus came here the day before to spend the night and have breakkie with me before the big celebration. Thereafter, I did my makeup and hair and brushed the dust off of my national suit. We ate dinner and dessert at my grandmothers house, it’s tradition. At night we went back home and enjoyed Prosecco on the balcony. 

^Photoshoot before starting the day. 

Usually norwegians go out in the streets, wave their flag and drink like there’s no tomorrow, but we decided to take it easy and cozy this year. 

How’s the national day celebrated in your country? I know I have readers from all over the world so I’d love to hear about yours. 

Home sweet home

After a long journey through airports and hours in airplanes, I can finally say that I’m back in Norway. It was quite a stressfree journey compared to my other flights back and forth to america, considering that I only had one stop in Amsterdam. Thank god! Amsterdam is one of my fave airports too, so that helped a lot. I’ve really been feeling Amsterdam the times that I’ve been there so I’d love to actually explore the city. I’ve never heard one person say anything bad about that place. One day I’ll fly back down there to visit properly.  

I also bought “The Alchemist” the day before I left – a book that I’ve been trying to get a hold on for over a year now.. Finally, it’s mine! I’m already halfway through the book and so far so good! A lot of good wisdom in it.

^The view over my hometown, Hell Norway. Yes, I actually come from Hell. Don’t mess with me. šŸ˜‰

The first thing that met me when I walked out of the luggage claim was my mom and little sister waiting for me with a mango smoothie from starbucks. How sweet is that? Refreshing to drink something fruity after hours of airplane food and coffee..

Now I’m going to pick up my car, finally!! I’ve been missing my mercedes so much!
