“It’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.”
A quote from a recently purchased book with the same title. I recently got back into the single life. And I’m now all about me, self-improvement and development. I have hundreds of goals I want to achieve in this short life we have been given, and I want to make the most of it.
Today I woke up early – and that made me happy. No alarm clock just woke up before 8 am and felt refreshed. And that’s one aspect of my life I want to improve. I have always been a person who could stay in bed for hours and hours. Sleeping to 11 or 12 am was normal on the weekends (or any day off for that matter). The more hours I could get in bed, the better. My life used to be all about by my sleeping habits, and not the opposite. Time for a change!
Breakfast this morning was simple – 2 fried eggs and 2 black puddings – did you know black pudding is a super food? Super delicious too if you ask me.
Later today I headed into down to get me some Nespresso, 4 new books and sat in the princes gardens reading in the sun. What a great day. It’s the simple things in life, isn’t it?
Right now about to get ready and head to the gym. Make good choices today people. PS. Next post will be about the carb cycling diet!
Right now, I’m loving life, I’ve got a clear head, I feel ambitious, I feel ready, I’m happy.
Last few months have been stress. Capable stress, but stressy. I’m half through my university degree, summer is nearly here and I have a new job! And it is one of my dream job (worth to mention I have quite a few dream jobs) !
So what’s my new job? I work as a freelancer – I work at home (how great is that!) – got myself a fancy new desk and a more good-looking than a comfortable chair. I’m working for Amanda Hamilton. A well-known nutritionist here in the UK. You can say I was over the moon when I managed to get into the world of nutrition before graduating!
So what do I do – mainly what I love – recipe development, food photography and some other bits and bobs. You can say that my fridge is stocked up with nutritious food all the time. (I’m not complaining tho.)
Now, with more time on my hands, I hope to put more effort into this forgotten blog. Share with you my knowledge and inspire you to make a difference in your life.
Will I continue on my diet experiment – yes I would like to. But right now I’m not going to jump on another one. I’m actually itching to compete again this year – so might start prepping in June. We will see.
Make it a fit day people!

Taken a bit of a long blogging break. Sorry about that. 1. Been holidaying 2. Macbook broke and 3 havent been inspired or had the energy to put any time into the blog.
Sorry! A lot going on lately and honestly not enough hours in one day to do everything you need/want to!
That being said, I want to start a new diet experiment soon. Next Monday in fact. Havent quite decided which one I want to go for, but I will update as soon as I know. In fact, which one do you want me to try out next? Let me know in the comments.
It’s soon to be a month since the festive season finished, and I’m still finding it hard to “go back to normal”. Still not really gotten back to a proper gym routine, and my diet have been more 50/50 than 80/20 which I prefer. For instance this weekend I have laid under the covers with a 2 day hangover instead of actually doing something productive and useful with my time. What a waste.
From time to time I miss being on a prep. I miss having a strict daily schedule, get up 45 minutes early to make sure I do my morning cardio, pack my gym bag and food for the day. Have an easy relaxed breakfast while watching my daily YouTube videos. If I don’t have a proper routine in my life, I get pretty lazy. I am a real lazy person. Which I don’t like.
The fact that I’m going away on a little holiday this Thursday as well is not helping. Is it ok to use a whole month to get back to normal?
I’m the kinda person who need new goals to work towards to stay on track. If I havent got something to challenge myself in, I get bored. And Netflix and series become my best friend. Normally I can easily find what to do next, but this year I don’t really know what I want to do? Start a new sport? Do another competition? Start a new hobby? Give me ideas please..
The festive season is over, a long holiday has been enjoyed consisting of family, wine, food and love. Funnily enough I do not want it to be over, even though I prefer having a routine in my life. But there’s something about Christmas that I feel like it’s the only time a year you don’t have any worries or concerns. If you eat cake for breakfast it doesn’t matter, if you spend over 2 weeks drinking, it doesn’t matter. Because its Christmas, it’s the time to enjoy and relax. I havent been in the gym for nearly 3 weeks! Not by choice, but the first weeks of December I got a bad cold, and unlucky for me it kept coming back. Then I went to Norway spending it mostly at my dads ski cabin, where a trip to the gym is pretty much impossible. But hey, its okay to take some time off and enjoy yourself. As they say, it’s not what you eat between Christmas and New Year. It’s what you eat between New Years and Christmas.
Surprisingly though, the scale have not even moved 1 kg up. Probably lost a bit of muscle mass, considering I spent most of my days laying on the couch with a glass of wine in my hand.
After the Ketogenic diet I felt amazing about my body, I got a six-pack for Christmas (and lost it over Christmas). I think dieting in a way before Christmas was a smart idea. If you follow me on Facebook I said that I was going to put up the summary about the Ketogenic diet a few weeks back. It was just in the middle of exams and my bloody cold, so I down prioritized that. My apologies. The next blog post will be the summary about the Ketogenic diet.
Leaving you with a few snap shots of my Christmas this year.
