Whole 30 day 18-20.. went to the summer cabin for the weekend.

Still doing a the whole30, however this weekend i did “cheat” on saturday when I went to a dinner we were invited to. I had some wine and sauce to the fish that was served. On Sunday evening on our way home I also ended up having kabob with rice and creamy garlic sauce ( i thought they were going to give me the tomato sauce). It was very interesting because I felt a difference really fast in my body. It is strange how quickly I can feel a difference. I will continue to do the whole 30, and even if i will not have done it 100 % correct I still feel like it’s been fantastic and I still have some days to go. I don’t feel like a failure, and no one should just because things didn’t go like planned. We just need to continue to do the best we can and not give up 😀

Went out dancing to a salsa club saturday with a few friends and it was fun, i am not used to wear heels anymore so my feet were killing me after a few hours hahaha. I love wearing heels so I guess I need to try to wear them more 😀 I must have missed the memo about it being a black/ white party. Almost every person in the club had a black or white top on hahaha. Oh and you can’t go out without taking the mandatory bathroom picture 😀

Whole30 day 3-5 done whohooo :D a new brekfast recipe up!

Helloooo 😀 The Whole30 is going great and I feel good. I’ve had some busy 3 days with work, friends and having fun. Went to pick blueberries on friday with my friend. We got these berry pickers which made it a lot easier to pick the blueberries. However we didn’t like the surprise of spiders, ticks and some other creepy crawly things that came with it hahaha. We will go out again next week to get some more blueberries before the season is over.

I also changed gyms yesterday, or I quit my old on friday and signed up at a new gym yesterday. A lot of my friends go to this new gym so now I will join them. I think it will help me and motivate me to go to the gym more often, also we can push each other too.

So on thursday I tried a new breakfast and it was very good. I had it for breakfast for 3 days it was that good. I could probably eat it for a few more days. But I decided to not do that it might get boring then hehehe

Whole30!!!! Yup I am doing another one :) Started today :D

Hey all 🙂 I’m doing another Whole30 and I need it. Been eating really crappy this past 6 month, I’ve gained some weight too and it is time to make a change. So I am kicking it off with a bang! Last time I ended up being sick and stopped it. This time I am going to go through with it and I hope i won’t get sick again since I was just sick for a few days.

I am really excited because my co-worker and her husband is doing it with me. Well she already started last monday. She was too excited and couldn’t wait. So we will keep eachother on track 🙂

I forgot to weigh myself this morning so I will do so tomorrow. I also need to measure myself and take pictures to be able to see the change better 🙂

Day 1: I had not bought any groceries before I started this morning so I didn’t have too much to use for breakfast and lunch. I did go shopping after so now I have some good stuff to cook with 🙂

  • Breakfast: Berry spinach smoothie with 2 eggs
  • Lunch: Zucchini soup with shredded chicken
  • Snack: 1 egg and a banana
  • Dinner: Jamaican run down ( fish stew) with cooked green plantain and kale

Time to do some dishes, Night people 🙂

Uh-oh this weekend was a challenge, but it’s ok.

The last few days I have been very busy and have not been able to post anything. I also deviated from the challenge, however I am back and I will not start over on day one but just continue a few more days instead 🙂

Last week was a challenge, I started a new job two weeks ago and there is so much to learn, and my head have been on overload hahaha. I also worked really late, and that I’m not used to. So I was kind of exhausted in my brain this weekend. On saturday I ended up eating at TGI Fridays had a burger with gluten free bun and a few fries, I also had 2 mojitos. And on yesterday on sunday I had nachos at my sisters house. My stomach ended up in so much pain after dinner yesterday it was still hurting this morning. I’m not going to punish myself for failing this weekend.. it is just getting back on the wagon again. Now 24 hours later my stomach is still hurting a little bit.

Today I had nut porridge topped with berries for breakfast and a purple green juice. For lunch and dinner I had taco pie i made last week 🙂

2015-05-11 07.27.01

The nut porridge is delicious and simple to make, I found this recipe online it is in swedish. I just used less to have a smaller portion.

Nut porridge

  • 1 dl (0.4 cups) nuts ( i used almonds and cashews)
  • 1 tbsp flax seeds
  • 1 dl (0.4 cups) coconut milk
  • 1 msk water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 banana
  • Cinnamon
  • Cardamom
  1. Put the nuts in a blender and mix the nuts until they are very small pieces.
  2. Put the eggs, banana coconut milk and water in a mixer and bled.
  3. Pour in the nuts and stir.
  4. Boil in a pot while you stir, until you’ve got the right consistency.
  5. Add the cinnamon and cardamom.
  6. Top with some berries. Enjoy!

I’m embarking on a 30 day paleoish cleaneating challenge…today is day 2 :-) and a smoothie recipe!!

Hi i have been slipping for some time now. I have been eating to much of foods my body does not agree with. Like dairy (mainly cheese), sugar (in sweets, coffiee drinks, icecream etc.), processed food (chips, fries, etc.), even some gluten though extremely small amounts. And my body have been telling me to stop but i have ignored it. Now it is time to stop and get back on track eating in a way my body deserve. And for me to do that i need to challenge myself, i stay on track when i do. It is also a great way to kick start change and creating good habits.

My 30 day challenge will consist of paleo food, vegetarian food and raw food. That’s why i called it a paleoish clean eating challenge. And as always preparing and planning is the key to stay on track. Yesterday on day 1 i ate a delicious smoothie with eggs for breakfast, recipe below. For lunch i met up with a friend and had a salad topped with shrimp, snack was the same as my morning smoothie. For dinner i had salmon with oven baked sweetpotato.

Yummylisious smoothie recipe:

  • 1 banana

  • 1 small knob ginger
  • 1 tsp green superfood mix (chlorella, wheatgrass, ginger)
  • 3/4 cup water

Blend and enjoy!!!!! For the part i saved for my afternoon snack i added 1 tbsp chiaseeds so it would be more creamy.

Whole30 Day 27-30!!! Yummy recipes :D

Food food food food I love food 😀 I am learning so much and I am super happy for the internet and google. The inspirations are endless. On sunday I made some crock pot italian meatballs recipe below, original recipe here. On monday I ended up getting sick at work and I was sick all week ..feeling fatigue and heavy in my head with flu like symptoms. But my spirit is feeling fantastic hahaha. So I didn’t work out at all this week..letting my body heal. On monday eve I made some really good ice cream and on tuesday my friend came over for lunch and I made some delisious salmon with broccoli rice and of course some ice cream for desert 😀 She loved it by the way. She got so inspired to eat healthier now. Yes you can eat really really good and still eat healthy 🙂

So my Whole30 is completed and this time it was harder then the last 2 times, partially bacuase I ended up with stomach issues. So I had to eat more fruits and smoothies to combat it. Then I had to fast for my check up. I also had sugar at 2 different occations. However I am happy I did it and it may not have been 100% clean…but atleast I tried. It is better to attempt and fail then to not attempt at all 😀 I did inspire one friend to do it with me, and she did very well lost a lot of inches. I also inspired antoher friend to try it…the one I cooked for on tuesday ;D

The luscious ice cream OH it was soooo good.

Whole30 Day 23, Workout day 2 Week 3

Hiiiiiiiiiii I am doing great 😀 For the past 2 days tuesday and wednesday I had to take a brake from my Whole30 challenge, I went on a liquid fast to go to the dorctor for a stomach check up. Now I’m back eating solid food again, nice cause I was hungry hahahaha. Everything was good with my stomach YAY. I tend to have digestive issues so I think I need to include more probiotic foods in to my diet to help my gut flora. I will probably start with some natural supplement first. I will do some research and let you know what I find 🙂

On tuesday morning before my liquid fast started I went to the gym. I had more energy then monday so I could actually do the workout properly 😀

Week 3 Day 1 Hard, Whole30 day 22 finished!

Hello…. Today day 1 week 3 was really tough at the gym. I was motivated but had no energy at all. It was super hard to get through the workout, and I had to cut it short to go to work. But wow it was difficult to do without energy. I think it is due to me not eating enough food (calory intake) though I feel like all i do is eat hahahahaha and started to workout. So I need to eat more nutrient dense food. This is all a learning process and it is amazing to go through every step of it. Life is more about the journey, and a little less about the destination. Having goals are fantastic and a must in life, but the small steps on the way is what will take you there 😀

Hej …. Idag, dag 1 vecka 3 var riktigt tufft på gymmet. Jag var motiverad, men hade ingen energi alls. Det var super svårt att köra igenom träningen, och jag var tvungen att kapa det kort för att gå till jobbet. Men wow det var svårt att göra utan energi. Jag tror att det beror på att jag inte äter tillräckligt med mat (kaloriintaget) men jag känner att allt jag gör är äter hahahahaha och tränar. Så jag behöver äta mer näringsrik mat. Detta är en inlärningsprocess och det är fantastiskt att gå igenom varje steg av den. Livet är mer om resan, och lite mindre om slutmålet. Att ha mål är fantastiskt och ett måste i livet, men det är de små stegen på vägen som kommer att ta dig dit: D

Vecka 3 har lagt till en till dag till mitt träningsprogram, gick det från 4 till 5 dagar. Jag märkte inte det när jag valde det. Och efter två veckor till kommer det att läggas till ytterligare en dag, sex dagar i veckan för de återstående 8 veckorna. Wow jag gick från knappt tränar till 4 nu 5 och snart 6 PHEW hahaha CRAZY!!! Men jag ser fram emot att se resultatet och att bli starkare och tränad 😀 : D : D

Feeling fantastisic today 🙂 Im loving my new lifestyle. ..it is the 1st time i am actually not getting sick and following through with working out.

It has changed my life! Doing this Whole30 challenge is really helping me to get better.
