Hello everyone! Long time no see. I thought I would come up with a cool title this time -lol-
I miss tumblr so much oouch!! Anyways, on march 20th I decided to test some of my knowledge and take my theory test for car. I was just curious to see which questions i would get. I got 35 out of 45 questions correct and failed with 3 questions too much. -damn-. 540kr went to waste for nothing. Anyways I am very glad I took the test, because I go so many ideas from the test. Now I know what I should read more and prepare myself more on for the next test. It came as a shock to get so many mathematics questions. I will be taking a new test on april 3th-finger crossed-. I am reading like crazy for my next test, since I don’t know what I will be asked about.
I have also been extremely busy with work. My life pretty much consists of work and the road to a driving license at the momment.
Good evening to all of my lovely readers ;) I guess you are pretty much curious about what’s been going on in my life lately. Well I am reading like crazy for my theory test. I am 19 and still haven’t bodered to get a driving license. Well I am finally ready to drive a car; ofcourse it will take alot of time, money and dedication, but I know that at the end it is going to be worth it.
The title says it all! You have no idea how difficult it was/is for my body to start my intensive training again. One thing I can surely advice you about is; never start hard or rough. Cause that’s exactly what I did. I just registered at a new gym, and I thought I could do everything at the same time, but honestly my body didn’t agree. I ran 10Km in three days period with different strenght exerices, and on the fourth day my body said : take it easy on me. I became so tired and weak, it felt like I had been running 20km under 3 seconds. Since I have a free year from school until august, then I thought to myself, why not start exercising? besides it is a new year! Anyways I will exercise everyday, but I will keep my exercises short and easy.
Anyways that’s a short update. Take care of yourself, everyone!
Gosh! I have really become a lousy blogger. I believe that most of my reader (if not all) are very curious about what’s keeping me so busy, or what’s going on in my life. Well my life consist pretty much of work, food and more work! After going through some ups and downs, I decided to take a year off and work before starting university.
Some of the details of this choice were my decision, but most of it was god’s plans. We are so busy about planning our future sometimes, that we get lost and forget that there is someone bigger and mightier up there, who can turn everything around in just a blink of an eye. At the moment I am working in a hospital with disabled people. To be honest, I like the job! I won’t say I love it, since I don’t earn millions of dollars in a month , but for a beginner like me, the salary is pretty ok. As long as it gets me through the months, then it is pretty alright. It is pretty crazy how fast this year have flown by. We will be in 2014 in just two days, w-i-c-k-e-d- (lol) Anyways, this Christmas has been very different from all of my previous christmases. Not the food or the tradition wise, but my emotions, feelings and time have changed. I feel like so many things have changed so rapidly. Anyways I don’t want to complain, since everything happens for a reason. To sum everything up; I am happy and that is all that matters, also I miss blogging soo much!
Merry Christmas and happy New Year! Enjoy and have a lot of fun everyone, love you all..muuah
Hello everyone! Sorry for my small amount of blogging, oh gosh, so many things have happened in my life in such a short amount of time.
As I mentioned before, I was going to travel to London, well guess what? I had the best time of my life there. Two weeks in London felt like two hours. Time really flies when you are having fun.
The journey began on august 21th; mom and I took an direct flight from Tromsø to London, Gatwick. Which took three hours; we took off 9pm and arrived around 12 at midnight.
When we arrived at London airport (Gatwick) we took a black cab, which cost 75pounds from the airport to my aunt’s place. We arrived to my aunt’s place almost 1am in the morning. She and her children were sleeping, when mom, I and the cab driver woke them up.
The next morning, august 22nd; we ate a delicious breakfast and my aunt’s children went to school. My aunt decided to give us some tour around some of London’s most popular shopping malls. After having our breakfast we dressed up and went to a kiosk to buy a one week oyster ticket. We didn’t buy that much that day, since it was raining a lot, it was also a bit cold. We pretty much had to hurry up. Instead of walking around in the rain, we went to KFC and had a huge meal there. Gosh we got so much for just 15pound food. One of the things I mostly found cheap in London was the food, unlike Norway, where food is one of the expensive things. Quiet sad! But weight and health wise, it is also good.
25. august- The boat party
Before travelling to london, my aunt invited me to a ‘’boat party’’ which was going to happen on august 25th, she told me to take a white dress with me. The party is based on everyone wearing white. So yeah, I bought a beautiful white dress in Norway. Instead of running around every single corner of London after a white dress. I went to the party with my aunt’s elder child, Aeyesha. We dressed up together and went there around 8pm. Again, it was raining on this day too. We were so pissed, but couldn’t do anything about it. We drove to’’Tower Millennium Pier ‘‘, A place near ‘’towerbridge/london bridge. Where we waited for the boat to arrive.
The party was such a blast. We ate countless amount of african food and danced the night away. The boat was driving right under the towerbridge. There was light all around the bridge. Gosh it was such a beautiful experience.
27. august- shopping at Stratford & good food
The next day, I decided to go to shopping. I saw a lot of amazing stores and bought lots of beautiful things.
This day was such a long and enjoyable day. We went on a long shopping trip around london. I saw alot of stores, I can’t even remember the name of all of the stores & malls I saw. The malls that I mostly shopped at was’’ Primark & forever 21’’. These are definately my all time favourites malls in London. After a long day, we came home and orderd some biffpizza , cheesesticks and watched some movies. The pizza was so delicious.
Sweet 27- Bithday
I was invited to a random birthday party. A beautiful, sexy and increadible smart girl turned 27. We celebrated her birthday at a club , with lots of drinks and danced the night away.
29. august-Greenwich park, oxford street, starbucks nando’s & London Bridge
This day was another amazing day In London. A friend of my aunt drove us way to Greenwich park. We walked around the park and as being a photo freak as I am, I probably took over 100 photos that day, just at the park. After walking for hours around the park, our stomach began to scream for food. We took a stop at ‘’nando’s’’ A really fancy restaurant, I must say. We ordered a really delicious group meal for about 27pounds. My favourite thing about nando’s is the refills of the drinks. You can drink as much as you want. After having something in our my hungry bellies, we went to ‘’oxford street’’. Gosh that street is full of stores, malls and most of all human beings. The street is so full that walking is almost like exercising. While at Oxford street and after the meal at nando’s, I started craving something sweet. I went to starbucks to buy some coffee, oh gosh starbucks was also full. People was standing/sitting in everywhere I turned my face to. I bought three large mocca for the three of us. Our final place to visit this day was London bridge. We took a DLR/train that took us straight to london bridge. We went on the bridge. Boats were floating under the bridge, and people were taking pictures of every corner of the bridge.It was so beautiful.! I bought a beautiful london mug there for 5pounds and a souvenirs for my sister’s husband.
September 1st –Buckingham palace, Big ben & London Eye
Around 1pm a family friend drove us to Buckimham palace. This place was so full of tourists and life. I saw also saw the big ben and London Eye. Words can’t decribe my experience. I wish I could see the queen though. Hehe
This is just a short version of my trip in London. Hope you enjoyed reading my experience. If you haven’t travel to London yet, then you should totally do so. The city is so full of life. My next travel destination will either be Rome or Paris
Just came from London, and I had the best time of my life. Gosh that city is so beautiful and full of history. I would love to share my experience with all of you, but I am too busy, haven’t even packed my things out of my suitcases yet. I will be updating my blog more frequently from now on.. !!One love!!
Hello blog, long time no update. I have been very busy with work and late shifts have taking most of my energy. For. Example yesteday, I worked from 10:30pm to 7:30 am in the morning. As soon as I came home; the the very first thing I did was to jump into my bed and sleep. I slept a lot, and when I woke up, dinner was already ready (lucky me, big appulous to my mother). Work have made me very (unhealthy as well) Not eating regularly and absolutely not (healthy) at all, anyways anyways, that circle of my life will never stop or end. Anyways anyways, I‘ll soon be travelling for summer vacation, I know it is a very late for a summer vacation„but that is what happens when you have to spend your entire summer on working to earn some money. I mean; we all need money to survive right?
I will update you guys a lot while on vacation…I am so excited . I am counting the days every single day hahhaa
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but in order to enjoy the very first meal of the day, it must taste delicious and healthy for you aswell. So here are some ideas, from me to my lovely readers/followers
hello blog, its been such a long time since I last updated you guys. well my life is a roller-coaster
I am working full this summer, and after summer I will be travelling to 3 destinations, not mentioning anything yet. I will blog about my journey every single day when the day arrive— anyways talk to you guys later ;) I am planning to watch two movies by J.Lo and enjoy myself„besides it is friday xoxo Teneh!
I recieved these brand new shoes from Nelly.com yesterday, and I am absoletely inlove with them. (I wanted to blog yesterday, but my internet connection was extremely slow). Anyways, I’ll be using these shoes alot this summer, probably in winter aswell. I ordered them a week ago and got them a week later (yesterday) for only 225kr for each shoes. The original price was 450kr or something for a pair. This is one of the reasons for why I love online sales, you get nice things at low prices ;D
wearing the shoes;) love love this shoes;) so happy now
I know, I know I am addicted to Calvin Klein cosmetics. I just bought this new spray, especially for my mom. I am not a huge fan of the spray, but my mom loves it, so in theory, i bought it for my mother as a birhtday gift. Don’t misunderstood me, I will still be sneak using this spray alot.
I bought this lipstick yesterday, while I was on a road trip to another city. It is absolutely gorgeous. The funny thing is; I have been seaching for this colour for atleast 3 months now, seeing it in a random mall was almost a miracle. I really love the colour.
Here are my two favourite lotions for stretch marks. I have been using Bio-oil for 1 and half year now, and to be completely honest I haven’t seen any huge change. But it makes my skin glow, which I love! I have just started using Weleda. I hope it is going to do as promised *fingers crossed*
Toner and Callus remover
I have been using this toner by revlon for 5 days, and I am totally in love with it. The scent is awesome and it gives my face a super glow. I really really really love this toner. As for the”intense callus remover” I haven’t seen any huge change on my foot, but I guess some products takes longer than other to effectively work.
Makeup and spot remover
”Clear & clean spot remover” is the best spot & pimples remover I have ever used. Very effective product, which I highly recommend for everyone that has some pimples or dark marks on their face.
”CK-foundation+powder”- I love this makeup. One of the best foundation+powder EVER!
”Revon-bare it all”-I have been using this makeup for almost 2 years ! It is very nice
Hello blog! It is strange to finally realise that I have become a bad and lousy blogger, but that’s life. Sometimes you have to concentrate more on other things. As being one of the most unluckiest person (in terms of school) I won’t be getting my diploma until the 5th of july, (If I am lucky). I seriously don’t know where to start. First of all I have eight or nine subjects at school, and I had five exams altogether. and guess what I heard on our closing day on friday?,That I passed everything, but unfortunately I didn’t passed the french exam. I was in a complete shock. I was like ”me fail in french?,comm’on that can’t be true” And I am still in a huge doubt till today. In fact everyone is in doubt. My family, my teacher, my bestfriend,etc.. Anyways my french teacher and my principal sent a complaint to the person that corrected the exam, and I will get the final result or verdict on july 5th. I feel like I did amazing. I just don’t know how to put my feeling into words. I haven’t cried my eyes out because of the news, instead I am trying yo stay strong and hope for a positive result. I can’t describe the fear of failing. Thinking about the feeling hurts more than the actual feeling. Since I know deep down in my heart, I didn’t fail. I wish everything was just a big nightmare, but unfortunately it is not. Anyways fingers crossed. I will update you guys on thr 5th of july, since I am very busy with work at the momment.No matter what the outcome will be, I will never ever give up on myself. Failure is not an option for me, atleast not after comming this far.
This have become one of my all time favourite breakfast since I started on LCHF. If I am not having,scramble eggs with cheese,tomatoes,hard boiled eggs, or coffee, then I am having this. I have a busy schudule, so this is the best breakfast for me (when I am in hurry).
1/2 cup of greek yogurt
1/3 cup of cottage cheese
toppings: cinnmon or fat cree cacao (20cl per two tablespoons)
I will be posting new recipes of my dinners every monday from now on; By the way I am on a LCHF diet (which I have been on for nearly eight days now)-and I will stay on this diet for the rest of my life.* I don’t feel comfortable calling it a ”diet”, I would rather call it for ”a life style change”. The best thing about LCHF is that you can eat as much as you want. In another word; eat until you are satisfied. Since I started on this diet, my energy level has increased dramatically and I am never hungry. I eat around 2500cl per day. 95% of my food consist of fat, protein and fresh vegetable (google it if you want to know more about LCHF). Anyways I made this delicious soup for dinner today, after school.
full fat milk (3.9%)
boil the chicken in plain water with a little salt
pour 2 cups of whole milk in another saucepan
Let the milk cook in 1 min, using low heat*
Add mozzarella and cream cheese into the hot milk*
My plan tomorrow (sunday) is to stay home till 2pm since I will be working from 2pm till 9:15pm. And enjoy a good breakfast which will consists of: Greek yogurt,nuts, cottage cheese and Cinnamon- and ofcourse with a huge cup of coffee with full milk.
Exercises I have done so far this week. I also did some walking and strength exercises.Unfortunately I can’t exercise tomorrow since I have school from 8am to 1pm and work from 2pm till 10pm;=) I will also be working on saturday and Sunday. I will try to squeeze in some time for some exercise. fingers crossed
Today have been a really good day. My entire school went on hiking/skiing on the mountain, today. Which was really fun. we grilled and had many diffrent types of activities. We were there for about 5 hours, before returning back. After the hiking I decided to go to the gym, since I have been sick for awhile now, and haven’t had a proper workout since last week sunday. I soon discovered that I had tons of energy remaining. The end result at the gym became 10KM run on the treadmill, followed with some short Strength exercises.
Good evening to all of my lovely readers and ofcourse followers. I just thought about sharing ”my night skin care routine” with you guys. Basically what I do every single night before going to sleep.
1.Makeup Remover:I use ”Simple makeup remover wipes” to remover my makeup before washing my face with plain water.
2.Facial Cleanse: After removing the makeup & washing my face, I use ”Daily energising gel scrub, by Garnier to scrub my face.
3.Eye Cream: After cleansing my face, I use my ”derma E Skin lighten cream” underneath my eyes for my dark circles. I Gently apply the cream under and around the eye.
4. Lip Care: I always use my lip balm, since I live in a cold country. My lips always gets dry while sleeping. Applying lip balm before sleeping is very important too. This will remove any dry and dead skin.
5. Moisturizer: Sorry, but I have lost count of my moisturizier creams. But I am addicted with Palmers moistuizer creams. This is my last step of my my night skin care routine!..and ofcourse I always brush my teeth before sleeping aswell..hehe
note:I have not been diagnosis with any type of eating disorders, depression or addiction. As the title says; this post is very personal, but yet I know that there are tons of people out there who are going through the same problem.
It all began in March 2011, but I didn’t realise that I had a problem until september, after celebrating my 17th years birthday. My friends and I celebrated my birthday at a pizza restaurant. They ordered a huge pizza and had a delicious dessert. It was a blast. The next day (after my birthday) I made a huge list of the food I was ”allowed and not allowed” to eat. pizza and dessert was clearly out of the ”allowed” list. I decided to start slowly, since I love food.I read about so many different diets and about nutrients on the internet. Now that I knew alot about weightloss, the only thing that rremained was DETERMINATION. I registered at a new gym and exercised every single day after school. I mostly ran on the treadmil, which has become an addiction. I was also eating clean. Wholegrain bread, instead of white bread. Two months later, I started doing things that I never imagined I would do. I started hiding my dinner under my bed and pretended like I had eaten it; and threw it in the garbage bin the next morning.I would come up with excuses of having huge lunches at school, and therefore eating dinner would not be necessary. I would sometimes skip lunch and dinner and sleep on a hungry stomach. I did this so many times, which led to alot of sleepless nights and stress. At first my mother didn’t notice anything, but clearly she soon started to suspect something. She started commenting on how skinny I had become. I told her it was because of exercising. Which was absolutely true. I would run 10-12 in under 60min. After exercising at the same gym for 3 months, people started to stare at me alot, whenever I was at the gym. My sister and my mother started talking about unregistering me from the gym and threatened me to eat. I told them I wasn’t starving myself, but they never believed me. I didn’t lose that much, since I mostly binge, just to prove to my mom that I was eating. I only lost 8kg (17 pounds) in almost 3 months and still everyone around me was freaking out. While I wasn’t even close to my goal weight.
I knew and still know today that I have a long journey ahead of me to lose those weight. In 2012 I started eating alot and not exercising that much. Within january 2012 till date March 2013, I have gained all of those 8kgs (17pounds) that I suffered to lose, due to stress from my family. Loosing weight is constantly in my head, and now my new addiction is exercising. I must RUN every single day, even if I am sick to the extreme, even if I have an exam. When it comes to dieting and stuff, I still think about it EVERY single day. The only thing I eat right now is yunk,yunk and more yunk and I feel so disgusting about myself. I am trying to live a ”healthy lifestyle” and the most important of all; be happy. I know that the journey to ”happiness” isn’t going to be easy, the hardest part is reaching my ”goal weight”, which I definately will by the end of this year 2013.
Oh lord! Where should I start? This week have been so &&%# stressfull (no joke). School is taking the shit out of me. And as being a workout freak as I am, I can’t resist the gym no matter how many homeworks, tests, presentations and work I have. I just don’t know. Believe it or not I didn’t entered my house till 8pm just now, and guess what my next plan is? Study more. I think I have a presentation in biology tomorrow about criminal cases. Enough about my complains, let’s move to the fun part;
I mostly lost count of my workouts. Here is what I did yesterday & today. By the way stress have taken half of the energy in my body.
If you read yesterdays post, then you probably know that I was feeling very nauseous. I grabbed the 5 hours school- free opportunity I had and went to the gym around 9am. I must say that medicines are not the only cure in this world. Exercising can be very beneficial for our health as well.
40 minutes walk
Treadmill: burned 867calories in 63min. & ran 12km
I don’t know what’s going on with me, but I feel completely nauseous lately It might be because of my diet. I eat so random. Carby food such like bread, rice, pasta and potatoes makes me completely sick. I just don’t know what to do anymore.
I started my day with a bowl of delicious oatmeal…
It has been awhile since I ate oatmeal, because of my busy schedule. I feel so guilty about eating other crap on- the- go just because I don’t have 10-15 minutes to prepare oatmeal. I love oatmeal so darned much. I noticed that I had three packs of fresh blueberries in the fridge and the first thought that came in my head was to make blueberries oatmeal and ofcourse with some organic cinnamon.
I cooked 1/4 cup blueberries together with 1/2 of oatmeal. The end result was very good, but mom thought that it was completely tasteless ^lol^ I don’t like adding sugar to my oatmeal. Anyways 1hour after my breakfast I tried to do some dvd workout . Which lasted for 10minutes before I became bored and switched to some ab workout (dvd). Around 10AM. my mom, my sister, and I drove to some random school where there had flea market. I bought some cup and glasses and after being there for two hours, I became so freaking bored and drove back home (alone). Around 6pm I went to the gym.
I never realised how hard life was until I turned into an adult. ”young adult”. So many responsibility and so many hectic days. This is one of the reasons why I am still single. I don’t have time for either boys or facebook anymore. Working and being a full time student isn’t easy. Believe me it is pretty difficult. I was not mentally and physically ready for none of this at all. Unfortunately bills comes every months and I just have to face the reality,
Tomorrow (Wednesday) is going to be a busy day. I have work from 7:30am till 2pm ( we have winter holiday), then my sister will fix my hair, I have no idea when and how much time that will eventually take. I hope I will squeeze in some time for some exercising as well.
I won’t promise myself, but I will try to go to the gym tomorrow and do these:
Treadmill: (….)burned calories & run 12km in 65min.
I might seem like the healthiest person on my blog, but the truth is that I am one of the unhealthies person on earth. The only thing that have been saving me is exercising. I am additcted to running, which helps me burn most of the calories I eat.
Anyways I am always trying to create healthy meal plans, which contains as little fat, carb and sugar as possible. Oatmeal is one of my all time favourite breakfast, but unfortunately it has way too much carbs, and eggs has too much fat. I could have the egg whites, but I hate that one too. After researching for months, I have finally come to the result of my own conclusions.
Here is a meal plan that I will be sticking with for 110days, starting from 1st march:
1/3 cup of lowfat cottage cheese (53calories)
1/4 cup of fresh blueberries (21calories)
1/2 medium banana (53calories)
little bit of cinnamon
green tea or black coffee
total calories:127 calories
1 medium apple: 95 calories
1 cup of iceberg salad (10calories)
1/2 cup grilled chicken (141calories)
1/2 cup cucumber (8calores)
cooking spray (1 calories per spray)
total calories:160 calories
1 salmonfillet (200calories)
4 grilled aspargus (13calories)
water, water, water
cooking spray (1 calories per spray)
total calories:213 calories
Avoid eating after 6pm
Do not count the calories in tea or black coffee
Remember that the calories in your food will become higher if you use other cooking oil
Hello everyone. Words can’t describe how busy I have been lately. I just came from work. I had school 8am to 2pm and worked from 2pm till now (10pm). I have been feeling really down lately, because of some personal issues. Anyways I am finally home and guess what I will be doing next? Watch a indian movie called ”dulhan hum le jayenge” and eat some yunk food. Enjoy your friday night, everyone.
'Life will never be perfect. Therefore we should always embrace it. Smile although your heart is aching”.
Super quick workout before school (Exercise log 20.02.2013)
Treadmill: burned 430calories & ran 6km in 34min.
Walked to school (10-15min)
A quick workout I did this morning around 8.AM before going to school. You don’t need to run a maraton everyday. My goal is to run 10+km whenever I am on the treadmill, but sometimes you just have to listen to your body. I must admit that I could run faster, when it comes to the time, but my left foot was hurting me extremely much. I wanted to quit after 5min. but something kept telling to ignore the pain and just run
I have a sad and yet funny story to share with you guys..
After three hours of intensive biology lesson, I felt an insane urge to pee, so I rushed to the bathroom soon as the lesson was over. As soon as I finished to pee„ my phone sort of managed to fall from my jacket pocket and straight into the toilet. At the same time I was hurrying to be on time for my next lesson, which was history, since we were going to have a test. I closed my eyes and took my cellphone from the toilet and washed my hand at least billion times and used over 10liter of antibacterial hand gel. It’s been over 4 hours and my poor phone is still lying unconscious.
I have ordered some new skincare products which I am dying to receive this Friday ;) Stay tunned. I am a freak when it comes to taking care of my skin/body. Even a single pimple bothers the heck out of me. Anyways here are the products that I will hopefully be seeing inside my mailbox this friday:
Jojoba oil- for skin and hair/scalp
Scar gel (you don’t need to have scars, in order to use scar gel, right?) haha
Healthy dinner for under 200calories per serving (Recipe)
I just made a really quick and delicious dinner today! This dinner is very healthy and doesn’t take long to prepare, espesielly if you have a rice cooker. ( I will have the leftovers for lunch tomorrow).
1/4 cup of cooked jasmin rice
Cut up the mushrooms and onions
Add small amount of olive oil in your frying pan
add all of the indigredients in the frying pan and stir fry
Hello to all of my wonderful readers around the globe. If I am correct, it has been an entire week since I last updated you guys. I am sincerely sorry for that. I have been very busy and I have so many things to share with all of you. Get ready for another late night babbling from me. Anyways my mom has travelled to my sister, which means I am completely alone in this massive house. It’s kinda ok but also very boring and lonely. We have been talking on the phone ever since she arrived, and each time we talk, she always asked this question: ” are you bored, are you lonely’’. Obviously she notice the loneliness in my voice. And to make her feel happy, I always lie: ‘'No mom, I am not bored, I mean I have facebook by my side. Why would I be bored. I am just missing you”.
Anyways it has been three days since she travelled, and today (saturday) was the first day in a very looong time where I relaxed to the maxium and was a 100% couch potato. I litterly haven’t done anything thing than eating crap and playing the sims2.
My plan for tomorrow (sunday) is to do some morning workout at the gym and hopefully run 10 to 12 km. Then do all of my unfinished homeworks and eat ”healthy” food.
