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!


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!!


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. 

Two more days

Only two days left of my Minnesota year! I’m going to watch Julie’s and the rest of the seniors graduation on friday and after that it’s straight to packing and leaving. I’m going to spend a week with Maggie in Minneapolis afterwards, and I can’t wait for that to happen. It’ll be a lot of fun! May 13th I’m going back to Norway for the summer. I’ve been craving Norwegian nature, fresh air, water and food for so long! Coming back to it will sooth my soul tremendously. 

What are your plans for the summer? 



The weather in Minnesota is rebellious. It’s like a teenager going against it’s parents tradition of seasons, because it doesn’t want to follow orders. Two days ago when I was going for my morning workout at 6, I was surprised to see snow falling down from the grey sky. Being welcomed  “good morning” with minus degrees and snow crystals surely woke me up. It hasn’t gone away either, still living in this cold.. Haha:( 

How’s the weather where you live? 

Q & A

I just finished my workout of the day and I’m currently laying in bed freshly showered. I’m thinking we should have another questions and answers post, since it’s been a minute since last time. Ask me anything you’re wondering about in the comments and I’ll answer shortly.
