Feeling under the weather…

CK bralette / CK bikini briefs Do you know someone who never gets sick? I do. Unfotunately, I’m not one of them… Wasn’t feeling soo good yesterday and woke up this morning feeling even worse… I guess theres no gym for me today! Instead I’m spending my afternoon break in bed with homemade ginger/lemon tea and Netflix. By the way – that tea is the best thing if you’re feeling under the weather! Just grate some fresh ginger (about a 1×1 cm. piece is enough, but you can add more...
   

Pool days and sunrays

Yesterday I went to the pool at my friends house and the temperature was just right. About 25 degrees and not too windy. I feel it’s been a bit cold in Dubai for the past few months, so I haven’t had a chance to wear my swimsuit that I bought a few months ago – until now! And ooooh how I love it. It’s from my one of my favorite webshops Beachcity.ae and unfortunately it looks like it’s sold out… But I recommend you togo take a look anyway, they...

Focus Points in 2018

I don’t do New Years Resolutions but I do FOCUS POINTS. Go here to read about my reflections and achievements on the Focus Points from 2017. I’ve been doing these Focus Points for the new year since 2010 and I highly recommend doing them! I usually choose 3-5 Focus Points that are important to me. They have to be absolute musts for me to achieve. I write them down and then I just get to work at the same time as I continue to live my life to the best...
   

My Story – Part 2/3

Continued from My Story – Part 1/3 … One day I stumbled upon a website featuring interviews with fitness athletes. I started reading the interviews and their stories sparked a fire in me.They were all so positive about themselves, their bodies and their stories. And they shared their programs and tips on how to achieve what they had. And what was the one thing they all had in common? They lifted weights! It was my turning point. Inspired but those women I started on my first real lifting program in...

Lunch in City Walk…

I’m on prep for my competition, but I still enjoy going out to eat in Dubai. Health and fitness doesn’t have to be boring and one of my favorite things to do is going out for lunch or dinner. And I would be miserable if I denied myself that little everyday luxury. It’s all about making good choices! I love the atmosphere in City Walk. It feels like being in a “real” city where you can just walk around the streets and choose whatever cute little place you feel like...

My booty workout (full break down & video!)

Full description: Warm up: 10-15 min. incline walk A: Sumo Deadlift 4×6 (usually I do 2-3 warm-ups sets before) B:...
   

Reflecting on 2017

It’s that time again! Time to reflect on my achievements in 2017 and set new goals for 2018. I’ve been doing this before New Year every year since 2010 and I highly recommend doing it. I don’t like to call them New Years Resolutions, as I feel like that’s something you forget about midway through Januay… So I call them my Focus Points. I usually choose 3-5 Focus Points that are important to me. They have to be absolute musts for me to achieve to improve my life. I write...

On this day a Queen was born

Today is my 28th birthday! I love being the birthday girl, even though I rarely plan anything special. It’s just a nice day where I feel extra loved. Usually I just do something chill with friends or family. Today I woke up at 7 AM to do 50 minutes of cardio before work. Then I had clients, another gym session (abs, chest & calfs) followed by a meeting and more clients. And after aaaallll the business, the fun began! My friend Farhad’s birthday is the same day as mine, so...

Competition prep | Am I really doing this?

My long term readers will know that I’ve been eating intuitively for the past 10-ish months. The results have been beyond anything I could have imagined and it’s the best thing ever ever done for myself. ALL of my eating issues (I’ve had many through the years) have been fixed. Food is now something I enjoy, but it has absolutely no control over me any more. During my yoga teacher training we were encouraged to only eat two meals a day, a sort of intermittent fast. And I kinda just...
   

My story – Part 1/3

As a child, I remember feeling very insecure and shy in social situations. In addition to being shy I’ve always had a very strong personality and presence, and some people just don’t like me. During middle school I had very few friends to hang out with, no close friends and was bullied a lot. I remember I would always pretend to be sick so I wouldn’t have to go to school. I won’t go into too much detail with the bullying, but for a young, very tall, shy girl, it...

It’s Not Goodbye, It’s See You Later

For English: Choose your language by clicking on the “translate” flag in the top right corner of your screen. – – – – – – – – – Efter 5,5 gode år er det blevet på tide at gøre status over bloggens fremtid. Jeg har ikke følt mig helt forbundet til bloggen siden jeg rykkede sydpå, og det skyldes nok en kombination af, at jeg er flyttet så langt væk og at jeg selv har forandret mig meget i forhold til dengang bloggen startede. Dengang det hele groft sagt handlede...

Update fra Dubai

For English: Choose your language by clicking on the “translate” flag in the top right corner of your screen. – – – – – – – – – Så må det være tid til en update fra Dubai. Jeg har brugt de sidste par uger på at være tilbage på arbejde for fuld styrke. Det var været en lang og stille sommer, men jeg skal da lige love for, at der er kommet gang i den igen nu hvor vinteren kommer snigende. Udover arbejde forsøger jeg at få trænet lidt....
