Trying to get into workout routines 

Yesterday me and my girlfriend G decided to try to get some more heathy routines going in our life. So today were the second time at the gym in two days. Don’t know when that happens last time but feels good even if my body hurts but it’s in a good way.

The challenge is eat better Monday to Thursday and work out two times a week for 15 weeks. Got highly hopes for thi and so far it feels good. Any tips on good workout sessions?

Took this photo on my way home from the gym.


Trying Yoga

A few days ago I tried yoga for the first time in my life. I took a class at my gym and I didn’t know anything and books a 90 minutes of yoga that not where for beginner so I had to try hard to keep up. I have it all and think it turned out more than okay. In fact I liked it a lot and I will keep on doing it  I think it worked out quite well and I love to work out with my body as its only weight and the combination of strength and the mindfulness isa thing I really like. Then I’m not very flexible so I think yoga can do me good.

After the class I felt very relaxed and did so for a long time afterward. I really liked yoga and will probably try it more times in the weeks to come.

What a start of the week!

Monday and I’ve started of the week with running and now grilling some salmon out on the balcony. I’m trying to enjoy the last piece of summer and the early still rather warm autumn that slowly are getting closer here in Oslo.

Today have I also get selected to become a yelp elite ’15 member which I’m real see as an honor. I’ve been reviewing on yelp rather frequently lately and often I also try to share the reviews here on the blog. They are on there way but not totally there yet.

Also started making plans for the autumn and today I has also a great plans with a few trips to Sweden but also some great guests that will come and visit me in Oslo, work with the board I’m on and a lot of other things. Then this winter I’ve got a trip coming up. Think we will have a great autumn and winter together here at the blog.


Want to try Stand Up Paddleboard

Since last summer I want to try a stand   up paddleboard or a SUP as its shortened as I’ve learned along the way. I’ve been looking at trying this a long time now and this might be the summer when I can make it happened. I’ve so far scouted at least one sure location to try a SUP along the way of my road trip and I know probably at least one location in Sweden as well. But I hope I get to try this during my California road trip. 

Then a few days ago I also got a message form G’s sister that thought we should have one of these at the cabin in Dalsland so we will se if one of these end up there as well.

Have you tried SUP yet?


Rediscovered my Fitbit

A year ago I revived a Fitbit flex as a gift from my family and I used it frequently for about a month I would guess. But yesterday I picked it up and had it with me when I where hiking in order to track my movement and it worked so good that I’m using it today as well. I’ve now been using it for a couple of days and it really works in order to motivate my to go for that extra walk or get away to the gym. So far so good!


Pain, Sun & Wednesday 

I’m sore in my muscles since the last days workouts but I like it. In fact to be sore in my muscles after been working out is my favorite pain. However today have a been a day with just walking about 14 km but nothing more than that in order to get the body some rest.

As the headline might hint about have it been almost summer weather today which it should be I mean it’s almost June by now. That usually means summer even in Scandinavia. The plans for the weekend slowly take shape and we will see what happends.


At the gym

The hike yesterday in combination with a little bit of bad conscious and with the help from my Fitbit flex that I’ve started to use again I ran to the gym today.

The running is not really where I would like to have it but the gym felt much better than I’ve expected so a good feeling inside now after the workout. I’ve also tried a new gym. 

Now it’s just to keep up the good work! But I need inspiration so if you have any good blogs please leave a comment below.


Monday Hike

Today is a holiday here in Norway so G hand scouter a route that we went hiking today. The where about 8 km and up on a mountain with great views over Oslo. Where good weather and the routes are so beautiful and the nature is stunning. We where very tired afterward but very satisfied with the fact that we have been out and excercised. This is one of the best things I know about Norway to be honest and just want to get out hiking again soon. It’s also a great way to hang out for me and G and we enjoy these kind if things very much both of us. In fact if you visit Oslo or Norway I would definatley recommend to get out in a hike.


Perfect Swedish Day Off

Just got a perfect day off here in Sweden. All begun with a nice breakfast with banana pancakes this morning and after that I slowly moved outside and was laying outside reading the virgin way by Richard Branson and very good and inspiring book so far. After that we had lunch with G’s grandpa and her uncle and aunt.

After lunch I continued reading but fall asleep in the sun. So woke up an hour later and took a run with G not to far away and then I made some salmon on the grill and had to dinner with G and her grandpa it was a great day as you can see.

A perfect day to spend your last day as a 27 year old.
