One year transformation=)

Hi all,

Today I want to inspire to making a healthier life change and to understand that transforming a body and building muscles take time! No miracle fixing if you don't want to eat nothing, but consistency and discipline and hard work can make you change your body to a healthier and more toned one=)

Below is my own transformation in one years time and I´ve done cross fit regularly for the last year. Started out with 3 times a week and now I do 5-6 woods a week. When I started cross fit I almost died every wod and I didn't dare to do many of the exercises that I do today. My weight has changed and from last year I´ve lost 12 kilos in weight but thats not the most important thing. The most important thing is that I am strong and have muscles and not fat. 

I long to see where I am in 1 year from now=)

Sometimes I need to stop for a minute...

…. and re-think how I think of things happening. 

It´s easy to sometimes fall into a negative way of thinking without realizing it and then when thinking negative start to question yourself, your life and what you can or can't do..

I am a positive person but sometimes I do dwell over things and now I´ve been in a state where I´ve been negative for some weeks and yesterday after a hard wod I, by an accident, found myself in a yoga class for the first time in years. I normally am to "stressed" to do yoga and such calmer things and prefer to do more hard active sports, but I decided I wanted to try it.

the class was great and then when we started to lie down for the relaxation and letting go of the tension and the coach played a song that chanted: Life is magnificent - hallelujah and so on with such lovely voices I felt how my muscles around my eyes and in my face started to get "tics" and jump around and I felt how STRESSED I am!

In that moment, a feeling of sadness came over me and I felt that: "now I´m gonna start to cry and can't stop!"

But I said to my inner self that it was ok to let the feelings come and that I needed them so I only had some tears falling during the relaxation and then afterwards I went home and put on the music from Buddha bar, jumped in to the bath tub surrounded with lit candles and in the water I talked to myself. I said to myself:

"- Dear Anette, its time to stop chasing around and try to do EVERYTHING at the same time. Its time to do one thing at a time and focus on that. Not do many things half-hearted but one thing and go in for it. And let go of the high demands to yourself. Let go of the feelings of being a loser at some things in life. YOU are not a loser, we all make mistakes but we learn from them. Move on, one step at a time and let the past go. AND start to do yoga every week, read good books about a positive life and embrace LOVE from the ones that love you. And don't give a fuck of the ones not loving you, let them go!"

So here I am:

Starting a new way of living and thinking again. 2015 will be the year when I think of who I am, what I want more carefully and not jump on every single thing that comes to me.

As I said to my mum some days ago:

I guess I will learn - eventually=)

Like a tree I grow and learn through life…

Love and hugs!

Todays music=)

Hi all and happy Friday!

Here I am awaiting the storm/hurricane thats coming here at around 5 this afternoon and I´ve been to the gym doing both a hard crossfit wod and then a really nice yoga flow session=)

I realised during the yoga session that I need to stress down and ground myself. It´s been to much of conflicts and negativity the last weeks so today I´m taking back my calmness and one way I do it is to listen to calming music and my favourite is Buddha bar. So todays playlist is from them=) And I love that they both have some rhytm in the music but also calming sounds. I am an energetic person so I need some vibe in the music still=)

ENJOY!

Never give up!

Hi all,

Today I am SO happy cause I finally got in to Lunds university, where I have studied before and where I tried to get in already in september but didn't get a spot. I then tried to get them to transfer me but that was also declined due to them not having any spots free.

BUT I applied again and TODAY I got in!!!!

NEVER EVER GIVE UP on your dreams and goals!!!=)

And do you know that I believe in destiny? Yep, there´s a special meaning with this too, as with all things happening in life and I rely on guidance to make my life JUST as it´s supposed to be, even if I sometime WONDER why things happen=)

Lots of love!
