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.
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…
…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!!
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. 😉
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!
Today we decided to try out a poledance class. It was my first time so I had no idea what to expect. At first when we arrived the studio we were welcomed with a great atmosphere and service from the staff. The interior was very girly and princessy, which I loved! It for sure gave me the right type of mood before the class started. It was a lot of stretching, some strength excercises and some practice with the pole. Note that we’re both beginners here, so I can’t brag about any advanced tricks or skillsets. BUT it was fun! I loved it and I will definitely do more poledancing as soon as possible!
After our class we decided to end the night with some refreshments from Starbucks. I chose green tea latte with almond milk (instead of dairy) and Maddie went for iced tea with berries.
If you haven’t tasted the green tea latte yet, your missing out!! It was amazing!
