Some days

Some days are better than others. That's the way it is. Whether you like it or not. Truly thought I was having a great day, until a few hours back. Poff! Something unexpected and, honestly, truly annoying and somewhat disturbing happened that turned "great" into "bad". So now I'm lying here in bed and getting angrier by the minute although trying really hard not to. I need a vacation! My tummy is not agreeing to all this negative stress! 
 
I need a cafe cortado! Bad! But it would make my tummy collapse completely right now, so I'm not having any although my nerves needs it bad! 😩

Hopefully this will sort itself out (with help from me and others) by tomorrow. Fingers crossed! 🤞🏻

To sum things up

Good weekend! Not much sleep, but what the heck, my summer vacation is closing in and with that quite a few lazy days. Had some great talks this weekend, which is always nice, and even got to spend a couple of hours enjoying the morning sun on the balcony. 
 
I love watermelons! 👌🏻 Perfect summer snack.
 
But I'm ending this Sunday with a headache from hell. It's a muscle just next to my right collarbone that's been bugging me since Friday and now it's determined to get my attention, by adding a headache. Pressing the muscle in my back makes the painful throbbing in my head intensify so I'm pretty sure it's the cause of my pain. Hopefully it'll be gone by tomorrow. Fingers crossed. 🤞🏻

Doing it

It's almost strange how something that was unthinkable just a few months back, now feels like one of the greatest energy boosts you could imagine - and therefore now a necessity. I'm talking about my morning workouts! I love my early mornings at the gym! 
 
I start off with a warmup run for about 12-15 minutes. That is about 5 minutes in an intermediate pace, 5 minutes of intense speed and 2-5 minutes of the highest speed I can muster! 
 
And when I'm done I'm so tired I can't even take a selfie without making it blurry! No different this morning! 😂
Today was arms, shoulder and back day, which is a hard one because it's my weaknesses, all three zones! But that only makes me more determined to work harder! 
Before I left for the gym this morning, I drank my first protein shake ever! As a first breakfast and pre-workout prep!
 
Star Nutrition Whey protein - chocolate and raspberries - and actually kind of tasty! I've always imagined them tasting really bad, but it proved me wrong! 👍🏻
 
When I got to my desk at work after the workout I ate a second breakfast, and again I focused on getting some extra protein included (and a banana). I love Barebells "coconut dream", it's super tasty! 👌🏻
 
We got some new chairs for the dining room at work today and the name couldn't be more suitable! Nerd chair! We're a lot of nerds at my workplace and I say that with pride! And I'm one of them! ❤️
 
I ended my active Friday with taking mini me to the stables and her riding lesson. And just as last time she rode Zeus! I love him, he's so so cute! I want to take him home! 😍

The rest of my Friday night will be spent on the couch! I deserve to be a bit lazy, don't you think, after doing so good in the gym? 😆 Oh, and by the way, I haven't had any sugar (not even dark chocolates) since last Saturday and I can honestly say I don't really miss it. Not anymore. The first three days was terrible! I missed my dark chocolate like a crazy person, but now the need is gone. So, if I'll keep this up I will be in good bikini shape when flying back to Spain in July! 😝
I hope you have a great weekend! ❤️

Prettiness

After work I went on a dinner picnic with my little family. The sun was shining bright and the temperature had reached a perfect + 27 C. To lovely to pass out on! Finally we can sense the presence of summer even here in Sweden! 👌🏻
 
So I kicked off my high heels and stepped out in the greens! Literally! 
 
We went to one of the 4-H farms here in Uppsala, in the outskirts of the city, and enjoyed our picnic and a walk looking at all the prettiness of this place.
 
There were a lot of pretty little babies, like these goats. If I wasn't a city girl I would love to have a goat! I think they're so cute, even as adults.
 
And mini me likes them too! 😍

Tomorrow morning I'm off to the gym before work. And I hope the running feels just as good as it did yesterday! Fingers crossed!

Good girl

I started my morning at the gym. Like a good girl! I love being the first one on the treadmill and start of my morning with a run! Especially when it feels so easy as it did this morning! Don't get me wrong, I was totally spent when I got off the treadmill and I was panting like crazy, but I didn't have to convince myself to keep running as I usually do, I just ran! And that inner voice of mine kept quiet the whole time! Usually it's repeating this mantra in my head; "Your body can't take more of this. One more step and you'll break. You don't have the strength and stamina for this, you need to stop!" 😝
 
I know, this picture is awful! All blurry and unfocused! But, I'm posting it anyhow because that is basically how I felt when I started with this leg exercise after my run! Tired to the bone! But so so happy! 😆
 
When I got to my desk at work I had one of these for breakfast! It was surprisingly tasty! The coconut flavour was perfect! And though small in size, it was still enough for me. 

Next workout is on Friday morning, and I'll be the first one there just like today! Love, love, love my early morning workouts!

Cut it off

I cut my hair today, rather my hairdresser did. And I had her cover all my grays too. 🙊
 
I'm happy I don't have to leave the salon looking like this! The foil just doesn't do it for me! 😝
 
And the finished result was this, like 5 cm shorter hair. I know my mother would prefer me to cut off even more, having me end up with a bob (right, mum?). But! For once I'll learn my lesson and remember how much I always end up regretting cutting my hair short. 

Now I'm off to date my Kindle. I need to finish this book series I'm reading. Unfortunately I find it to get more and more boring, but I'm still gonna follow it through and read them all. Maybe the author just had a bad day/week/month and will snap back at it! I'll give her some extra time to find her way back to the greatness of the earlier books in this series (Gender game, written by Bella Forrest). How do you do when reading a book series and somewhere in the middle of it start to get bored or disliking it completely? Do you stop reading/give up, or do you continue on in the hope that it will get better?

A special day

May 15th is a special day in our family because we celebrate not one but three birthdays; my mother, my brother in law and my little boy Charlie the cat. So I'm sending them a huge congratulation here on the blog too! I hope your day was just as special as you deserved it to be! ❤️ 

 
Charlie wasn't happy though that I decided to take a bath on his special day, he wanted to cuddle and water and cuddles don't mix in his book. 😆
But he slept next to me all night instead. ❤️

Change of plans

I had a mentor meeting planned on Monday which had marked up all afternoon in my calendar, but it just got cancelled for unfortunate reasons so suddenly I have 5 hours free to get some more work done tomorrow. I haven't opened my email at work since coming home from my vacation yesterday, but I'm pretty sure I'll have a lot to handle so those extra hours will come in handy although I'll truly miss that mentor talk! My mentor, whom I've told you about numerous times, is the best and those talks is super important - helping me grow in my leadership role but also as a person, giving me perspectives and food for thought! We'll schedule a new meeting in June so I won't miss out, just wait a little longer to get pumped up with energy and ideas. 
 
But for now I'm being lazy, just as you should be on a Sunday, right?! 😋

Flying high

I'm home. The flight from Spain took us safely back home to Sweden and it was two love sick cats that met us at the door. Charlie has spent most of the evening in my lap, cuddling and purring like crazy. ❤️
 
We got to wave goodbye to Villajoyosa from high up in the sky as the route went out over the Mediterranean and not in over land. Fun! And the family members that stayed behind apparently waved back, but we didn't know that until long after we'd passed. 😋 They were following us through the app. 

Tomorrow our everyday life starts up again, first of with mini me's tennis lesson, and then me working a couple of hours to get back on track work wise. And as I went on a run yesterday, and ended it with intervals up and down three times in this steep stairs up a mountain, I need to rest my aching leg muscles! 😝

I hope you all have a great weekend! ❤️

Letting the pictures speak for themselves

I'm not going to write much today, instead I'll post pictures of this beautiful place and let them speak to you!
We've had gorgeous weather here today!
 
And I've enjoyed every single minute of it!
 
The view from our hotel room. 👌🏻
Mini me and her cousin walking to the restaurant yesterday where we celebrated my father in laws birthday. Such a great evening, so much love and laughter! ❤️
 
Tapas for dinner! 
 
And tapas for dessert!
 
Our apartment is in the white/gray house on the right, third floor.
 
And the alleyways are so cute!
 
 
And all the houses was originally painted in the same colour as the fishermens boats so that they could see and recognise their houses from the ocean. If you had a red boat, then your house was painted in that exact colour! 

Tomorrow we're flying back home again so tonight we got together the whole big family again for dinner. 
And when in Spain you just have to have some paella! 👌🏻
 
The waiter serving the Spanish delicacy! 
 
I will miss this view when coming out of the house! But we're going back in I July so I'll soon enjoy it again! ❤️
