I desperately need more hours in the day. It’s frustrating to know that the day is coming to an end and I’ve hardly done anything productive. Most of my days start off very early but today I got to sleep til 8 am which I can’t remember when I’ve done last. Jumping out of bed, checking to my baby because I though he was already up. He wasn’t which made it possible to go to the toilet in peace and make breakfast. Between breakfast and my son’s first nap I managed to workout. He didn’t wake up before after my shower which was amazing, but after that the day just went into a blur.
We drove to his grandparents in the early afternoon and came home 2 hours later. That would give me more than enough time to do what I need to do. But between diaper changes, making dinner and giving my son a bath there’s not much time left for me.
I’ve been sitting at my sewing machine for the last hour but I just can’t get it to work properly. I’ve seen X amount of YouTube videos on ‘how to’. Everything from threading to sewing, but they all make it seem so simple and here I am still struggling. If I haven’t told you I got a SERGER for my birthday this year but it was bough on eBay so it wasn’t exactly brand new. I thought I could just sit down and start sewing but one problem after another started appearing. I’ve change both knives, needles and all 4 threads – and I still can’t figure it out. Why does everything have to be so bloody difficult with me?
That was my Sunday rant. I just had to get it out so that I wouldn’t go crazy. Sometimes I wish things would just be simple, but I guess that’s just too much to ask for.
Anyway, I hope for a better day tomorrow. Until then, goodnight.
It’s Monday and a new week has arrived. Yesterday was a long day where me and two other girls made a huge shopping trip. I bough some new clothes, food and (wait for it), a kettlebell! I wanted one for so long and I finally found one that wasn’t expensive. I knew I just had to get it because I’m sure I’ll be using it a lot! I’ve already tried it out this morning with a 20 minute workout. I’ve hoped in the shower and cleaned the house. It’s safe to say that I’m very proud, if I can say so myself. A perfect start to the new week. Now I can sit back and relax for the rest of the day. I’m planning on going out as well as soon as the little one has woken up, which won’t be too long from the sound of it.
Have a great start to the week!
There is only so much time in one day and when most hours go by to cook, clean, feed or change a diaper, there is only a little amount left. So you have to make the most of every minute especially when it comes to working out. I’ve found that multiple exercises put together is a great way to save time but also getting a full body workout. I stick to short workouts with a maximum of 5 exercises. If I want I’ll do a longer warm up, like today.
I started of with a 45 minute walk around the neighborhood to get my legs moving and body warmed up. When I got back home I only had a limited amount of time before I had to give the little one food again. So no time waisting I found 2 dumbbells & an ab roller. This is all you’ll need for this quick workout, and a couple of minutes to spare. I repeated the set 3 times with 12 repetitions.
If I can do it, you can do it too!
When you start your morning at 7 o’clock and already had your first workout before 10 o’clock you deserve a break, maybe even a mid-day nap. But before I head of to my own bed I wanted to share today’s workout with you. Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated but when you finally get that motivation grab on thigh and hold on to it.
Start with a quick warm up consisting 3 exercises that you do for 1 minute x 3 sets. Continue on with 12 repetitions x 3 sets with 5 kg weighs doing walking lunges, squats and donkey kicks. I also did standing leg lifts and used a thigh toner for my inner thighs.
Finish your workout with a stretch and you’re done. Focus on one body group for each session and find out how many repetitions you’re comfortable doing. Do not overload yourself with too many exercises, rather choose a handful and do those perfectly.
It’s been a good while since I’ve put on my workout clothes and worked out. During my pregnancy I worked out two or three times. Other than that I’ve just looked after what I ate. Staying hydrated and eating healthy, moderate meals. Now that my pregnancy is over I want to start my fitness journey again.
I was a big fan of fitness centers and trained several times a week. Now that I have a baby I want to incorporate my workout routine into my stay at home mum life. Already two weeks after my delivery I felt ready to start working out gain. But all the doctors , midwifes and other mums suggested to wait at least six weeks. In the mean time you should go for long walks. So I did, but yesterday, after five weeks and one day I couldn’t wait any longer. So I browsed through my workout playlist on YouTube and did a twenty minute post natal fitness routine. This was so tough though and I could feel my body was out of shape.
Now I’m sitting on my couch struggling every time I have to get up because I’m so sore. I know tomorrow will probably be worse, but I can’t wait for my second workout. The key for me is to stay motivated and change up my workouts so that I won’t get bored and quit. After all this is a life style and not a diet.
As we speak I’m uploading a new YouTube video. As soon as it’s live tomorrow at 12 p.m. I will link it here as well. Hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do. Cause I love to put my effort into these videos and editing has become quite fun! The videos will contain the things I love, like fashion & beauty. Look books, reviews, make-up tutorials, holiday videos and much more!
Today was a very chill day and I tried to enjoy it as much as I could before going back to work tomorrow. Luckily I only have to work 6 hours tomorrow and the upcoming week I have a lot of short shifts. I finished my usual Sunday cleaning, finally worked out again and I ate, a lot.
Since my internet is laging a lot right now I will cut it short and say good night. Sleep tight.
I can’t really explain my absence the last months. Sometimes it’s hard to describe feelings into words, and you have no clue why things happen. I’m only 19 years old and should have the whole world in front of my feet. But it doesn’t exactly help to hear all kinds of advice from colleagues, family or friends. There is no way they can put their feelings and trouble aside and look inside my head and see what is going on.
Everyone is going through something, cause we can’t always be happy – it is mentally impossible. For me, when I’m happy, I’m ecstatic. I’m on top of the world, like happiness is something I’ve never felt before. I have moments of happiness too but they fade away just as quickly as then came. And when I’m down I beat myself up over all the wrongs and should have’s. It’s hard to just be and let everything go because I always feel some sort of responsibility. At work, at home or to myself.
The day only has 24 hours, 9 of which go to sleeping, 8 hours go to work and 1 hour goes to commuting back and forth from work. Exercise takes about 2 hours, which leads us to 4 hours left to live. Is that enough, having 4 hours of spare time?
I’m just saying, there is not enough hours in the day to do everything we want or have to do. So spare with me, I’m trying my best.
Perfect way to start Sunday afternoon. Bowl of fruit, coffee and the most amazing yoghurt, literally felt like a taste sent from heaven.
Now some workout plans are due. Today I’ll do a killer butt & thigh workout at home.
So I just bought this book a couple of weeks ago on sale from http://www.getinspired.no
I’ve been wanting it for ages but always thought it was a bit too expensive for my expense. But as soon as it was set down on sale I just had to have it. And it is really a great investment, especially if you’re committed to write down what your meal and workout plan is.
