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 😀

Swedish:

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

Week 1 done, 11 weeks to go of my fitness challenge. Excited to see the progress in my body! This week was good got all 4 workouts in, my energy has been low so it has been a little bit of a challenge. But I pushed through it. Part of me feeling sluggish is digestive track issues. They got bad this week, so yesterday it got really bad to the point I was not hungry at all. So after work I stopped by the store to pick up some food to help alleviate the problem. Carrot, pear and pinapple juice are all great for the belly. So I decided to make a smoothie of the 3 ingredients yesterday. Thats what I had for breakfast and lunch too today, with my blueberry chia smoothie. And I feel much better, I actually ate some real food for dinner today. I am going to get some digestive enzyme supplements to help with healing my gut. Here is a great page to read about it http://whole9life.com/2012/09/digestive-enzymes-101/

I worked out at home in out little gym today, was busy during the day and I didn’t realise that the gym close at 5 pm. I decided that its not going to stop me from working out. So I did it at home. Only have 1 kg weights, but that perfect for most of the shoulder exercises i did.

I slept in today it was much needed 🙂 When I woke up at 10.25 I saw a text message from my lovely friend Henny. She wanted to meet for lunch at 11ish, since I needed to eat I thought it was a great idea to go and catch up over a meal. Jumped in the shower, got dressed and headed out. You can’t tell but she is pregnant with only 8 weeks to go before a new baby princess is born. After the nice brunch I went home and cooked food to take with me to work.

I had a lovely day today. I went to church and it was really good. I love Hillsong Church Stockholm. It took me some time to find a church when I moved back to Stockholm. I really love my church in LA Hope’s House and it was hard to leave and find another church home. However I did found one in Hillsong, I am happy. After church I went to eat with my lovely Josefin Pettersson, she is such a wonderful person supportive and just plane awesome.

Back home I wanted to make some quick food and made a mini 2 egg shrimp kale tomatoe omelette. So satisfying and filling. This works just as well as breakfast or lunch too 😀

Jag hade en härlig dag idag. Jag gick till kyrkan och det var riktigt bra. Jag älskar Hillsong Church Stockholm. Det tog mig lite tid att hitta en kyrka när jag flyttade tillbaka till Stockholm. Jag älskar verkligen min kyrka i LA Hope’s House och det var svårt att lämna den och hitta ett annan kyrka hem. Men jag hittade ett i Hillsong, jag är glad för det. Efter kyrkan gick jag för att äta med min underbara Josefin Pettersson, är hon en sådan underbar person stödjande och fantastisk.

Väl hemma ville jag göra några snabba mat och gjorde en mini 2 ägg räkor grönkål tomat omelett. Så uppfyller och fyllning. Det fungerar lika bra som frukost eller lunch också: D

2013-11-10 18.45.25

Recept:

  • 2 ägg
  • 1 hand full räkor
  • 1 liten grönkål löv
  • 2 cocktailtomater
  • 1 vitlöksklyfta
  • salt
  • citronpeppar

Gör så här

Lägg pressad vitlök, räkor och strimlad grönkål i en kastrull. Jag använde en mini stekpanna. När det tillagas, vispa ihop ägg och kryddor. Lägg tomaterna och stek i en minut sedan häll i äggsmeten. Tillaga i 4-5 minuter, sedan vända och koka i ytterligare en minut.  Servera och NJUT!
