I´ve had a wonderful week where I´ve been off work and taking care of my boys and enjoying the hot summer weather we have here right now with temperatures over +30 degrees! Wow=)
Haven't been this hot here since I was pregnant with Seth back in 2001. I still remember that HOT and heavy summer since I at my highest pregnancy weight weighed in at 90 kilos…puh! A lot of fluids of course but still, it was the heaviest I´ve been ever and I hope never again.
I am such an energetic person who loves to move fast. At work, I don´t walk slow, I walk fast all the time. And I´ve always been like that. Fast forward, going from one spot to another and at work I have always disliked to sit around doing nothing. So my summer job at the elderly home suits me perfect, since there´s always someone who needs help and time sure flies.
As you all know I love to exercise and now I´ve found the perfect exercise for me that really gives me that kick I need to push myself over and over. Crossfit! I started in november last year and the improvement I´ve done is magical. Not only have I lost lots of weight but also I start to get muscles and a strength that is awesome! Our bodies are made to work and if you like to really SWEAT and work super hard but with lots of team spirit around you - do crossfit=)
Here´s some sweaty pictures from my lovely gym Fnf4life=):
And not only do I get the best exercise but also I´ve met some amazing people at my gym and to get up there, getting a hug from them all before we start exercising is such a nice feeling and make me never wanna quit going there. How many gym´s have THAT team feeling??=)
I worked yesterday afternoon/evening and have some days coming before summer is ended and I hit university. I´ve loved to work at this place and I sure hope I can continue working there during my school and summer breaks. It helps me becoming a good nurse to be a part of this and see how our care of elderly works. So I thank my boss for letting me be a part of it this summer=)
Last weekend me, Johan and the kids (except for Seth who is a teenager and prefer to be with his older friends=) went to Hembygdsparken in Ängelholm. This is a great place for kids and it doesn´t cost any entrance so perfect for everyone. Here they have a huge playground with different areas for different ages to play in and then it´s also an animal park with animals such as hen, ducks, pigs, goats, horses, deer and many more. The kids love it and while me and Mio walked around one of the ducks felt like taking a nice bath in the little bath bowl and I captured it:
Here he/she comes to the bowl
Oh, this is sooo nice
Yay, I can fly=)
Look how clean and cute I am now=)
Such a lovely moment to watch and the pure joy afterwards when he/she felt good and not so hot anymore=)
Of course I took some more photos for you, here you go:
Soooo, some from last weeks stuff=) This weekend will be about family today and then off to work tomorrow. I´m also finishing some lyrics I´m writing for a song to be recorded for something in the coming weeks and I´m actually writing the lyrics in Swedish! And it feels good=) Fun to try out new stuff!
About my headline: You are the maker of your own destiny?
Well, I mean that if you want something done or changed - don´t sit and wait for things to happen! Go out there and start the change! If you want to change your body - start exercising, change your food, take a personal trainer and so on..
If you want a new career - check how to become it, then make a plan, apply to university, take courses, go for auditions (if music or stage jobs), network to get in contact with others, apply even for a job that you haven´t got any education for (sometimes you can get a job even without proper education if you really show you want to work hard to learn) and so on..
For me: I take new decisions all the time and I also am a very outspoken person so yesterday I put down some stuff to one I work with to get things rolling since nothing ever happens. If people don´t answer you or caring of your work, push and make them HAVE to do their work.
Cause it´s YOU and no one else who make YOUR own destiny in this life and believe me- life is to short to spoil on the wrong people or things.
A long blog post but that´s to make up for the lack of blog posts lately=)
ENJOY this weekend now!!!
