I suppose it’s healing time, because I’ll never be free to run away! Anyways before I turn this blog into a black hole of feelings I’m going to tell you that I’ve started on the review of Cinder (5 stars). I’ve also started reading Scarlet (The Lunar Chronicles #2)! 😀 I also have pictures to share from my latest tour with Five Impossible Minutes in Sweden!

I NEED TODAY TO GATHER MY THOUGHTS AND FEELINGS!

NIGHT; HOPE AT LEAST SOMEBODY IS THERE TO CARE! ❤

Exercise & Goals . . . Sleeping Well


Image

Part #4 . . . This is the last post on this category, there will be a last one though with my goals. This one is on sleeping, sleeping is the best and the worst thing a human has to do. It’s so annoying to be sleepy all day, and so good being fully rested. 

Image

There are many benefits due to sleeping correctly, and besides being rested… It has health benefits. First of all; sleep makes you feel so much better, and you feel energized. It’s said that you will improve your memory, live longer, improve your grades, spur creativity, less stress level, improve concentration and avoid depression. All of these and more is benefits that comes with being rested.

Image

When we focus on the health benefits of sleeping combined with training we see a huge difference from people who sleep 8 to 10 hours each night, to those who only sleep 6 and less. University of Chicago found out that people who slept well lost more fat combined with a diet (56% of their weight loss), while the others who did not sleep much actually lost more muscle mass. Another ting they figured out was that those who got less sleep felt way more hungry than those who slept.

I tend to sleep a lot when it’s weekend, but surely have to admit I’m bad at sleeping in the weekdays. 😀 I really try to go to bed early, but there’s only so many hours a day and way to much things that I feel like I have to do. For instance now; It’s 11:58 PM and I should’ve been in bed one and a half hour ago! 😮 Yup that’s me, but I swear that I’ll improve myself! 😀

What’s your sleeping habits? Do you like these posts, and are there anything more you’d like me to cover after these series of posts? 😀

Exercise & Goals . . . Eating Healthy


Image

Part #3 . . . Focusing on the whole deal of eating. There’s a bilion variants on what to eat and how to eat, there’s also a huge variety of diets. Everyday we see some sort of article or advertising on food, diets and what to eat and not to eat. It’s all very confusing to me and probably everyone else.

Image

What’s really eating healthy? That’s probably the question many of us ask ourselves. There probably isn’t an answer that is a 100% correct. Eating Healthy is in theory eating what is good for your body. We all have heard the quote “You are what you eat” it’s actually true. If you eat unhealthy it’s gonna affect your body at the end of the day. It doesn’t mean that if you’re not fat, that you won’t ruin your body. The picture above explains it all, because it’s true. You have to think about what you put in your mouth, because it’s the food that you eat that is the tools that will build and maintain your body.

Image

What to eat is probably the actual problem. You’ll need a combination of Carbs, Fats and Proteins at every meal. I don’t need to go in detail where you find these sources, but I’ll tell you this much that these help you keep a balanced blood level which also keep you energized and balanced all day. What not to eat is probably also an issue, but it’s pretty simple. Stay away from all sugar; it’s really really bad for you. Don’t eat fast foods at all; stay away from fried fatty foods. You can go on your lokal store and buy a salad instead of that Burger. There is also many points on dairy products as well, but believe me it’s a lot of healthier options out there. 😀

Another thing that is a common problem in today’s society is the over eating on carbs. Wheat, flour and grains is actually not that good for you. It’s not unhealthy, but did you know that our body had changed only 0,002% since Stone Age? They never ate flour, wheat and grain products like we do now. They didn’t have bread, wheat buns and bagels etc. Which actually means that our bodies aren’t used to eating that sort of foods. I actually doesn’t have to worry about that point, because I’m not receptive for that kind of food. I get a really bad stomach ache, but believe me… I eat that sort of products sometimes, because it’s so good 😀 Believe me donuts is tasty, and cake for that matter 😀

Image

Here comes the last truth in this part. It’s all about mental strength, and its true. In the end it’s you who have to take the healthy choices. When you decide to give yourself a snack you in the end have to chose between how unhealthy it’s going to be 😀 For instance; it’s summer and hot outside, and you and your family is going out for ice cream. It’s not healthy of course, but then you have the option of choosing Frozen Yoghurt which actually is quite healthy if you decide on having a healthy topping like strawberries and blueberries. It’s all about the healthy decisions.

I’m personally trying to balance each meal with a high fat, high protein and low carb sorta deal. I don’t eat bread, but I do eat crisp-bread because it doesn’t contain too much flour. Crisp-bread is also filled with fiber which is extremely good for you. I also try to maintain a great deal of vegetables and fruits, and at last the most important part WATER. 😉 Of course I do eat unhealthy at times, but I try to avoid it as much as I can 😀

I’m excited to hear about your eating habits, if you have any diets or anything foodish to share 😀

Teaser Sunday . . . Cinder, Marissa Meyer


Image

It’s Sunday again, and I tend to keep up with Teaser Sunday. This week I started a new book because I needed something new to read. The book is called “Cinder” and is written by Marissa Meyer

Image

“My only mistake was in waiting too long to be rid of you”, Adri said, running the washcloth between her fingers. “Believe me, Cinder. You are a sacrifice I will never regret.”

 

 

 

 

That was a quote from this book that arrose my interest even more. It’s a quote said by Adri, who’s Cinder’s stepmother. Her hideous stepmother which also is a strong symbol of the classic Cinderella story 😀

PS! Check out the new tab page I’ve gotten in my menu bar under REVIEWS -> BOOKS… -> On-Going Series.  

Have a wonderful Sunday, and once again take care of yourselves! 🙂 ❤

Sickness & Reading . . .


Image

It’s happy but sickness friday. Yes I’ve catched a cold or something, because my throat was killing me yesterday, and today I’ve gotten the headache so It’s been Friday a.k.a. relaxing day. It’s been a really good day actually. There have been some family troubles, because my brother have had some problems. It’s all okay now, but i’m a bit shocked still.

Image

I’ve spent my day mostly on my computer, but I started a new book today even though I’m currently reading two other books and have a small amount on wait. I have what I call a Unsecure Reading period. It’s the time when I just can’t stick to one book, and always feel like starting a new book… haha 😀

11235712_largeThe book I started reading many of you have probably heard of. It’s called Cinder” by Marissa MeyerSo far the book is amazing, really amazing. It’s about this girl called Cinder who’s a cyborg. The story is based around the story of Cinderella, but it’s a completely different story. The story happens in New Beijing, and Cinder has a beautiful, but threatening future ahead of her. Love it!

I went for some researching on Marissa Meyer’s blog, and she stated that she’s finished “Cess” which is the third book in The Lunar Chronicle. She said that ARC’s would be ready in June, and she also addressed an e-mail to her editor who delivers these ARCs… Use a few seconds to think of what I did 🙂 I actually wrote a mail to her publishing asking for an ARC to review. I wrote a nice mail about my blogging story, and how I rate and just introduced myself. I really hope that I’m one who get chosen to read and review that ARC 😀

Image

I’ve actually received ARC’s before from NetGalley, most of them in eBook format, but I didn’t have my Kindle then. I’ve also received one in paperback format. This is actually my second time requesting in person by e-mail, but this is the first one I’m actually super excited for and I have all my fingers and toes crossed. I’ll keep all of you updated if I get an answer 😀

Well this was basically my day, now before I go to sleep I’ll continue on reading Cinder. 😀

What are your Weekend plans? Have you ever requested any books/ARC’s before? What are you reading at the moment?

Good Night VitreousLifers, 😉

Exercise & Goals . . . Working Out


Image

Part #2 . . . Majoring on Working Out! Super excited on what your working out plans are. Your preferences, and your goals on being active and working out. At least here’s mine 😀

Image

I truly believe first of all that you gotta work really hard for what you want. That’s also meant in terms of training. You can’t go all easy and think you’ll get your results just like that. Training is painful, and of course not always fun. I love working out, but there are also times when I’d rather go to bed and stay there. 😀 When you work out you gotta give it your all, push your boundaries and just train so hard that you know you’ll feel sore tomorrow.

Of course not everything is for everyone. You have to find something you like doing, something you feel confident doing. Keep in mind this; I hate when people isn’t open to trying new things at least within training . . . I advice everyone to keep an open mind, because you’re just ruining it for yourself. I actually have an example; my friend Hanna hates dancing, she feel’s terrible about dancing, because quotation “I can’t dance”. She actually refuses to try Sh’bam or Zumba for that matter. In the beginning I also felt like that, but I tried it and loved it . . . Now I’m doing Sh’bam every Monday… It’s been my anual cardio exercise for weeks now.

Just to clear somethings due to the fact that I said that you have to work out until you’re gonna feel really sore. That doesn’t mean you’re gonna work out more or do the same muscles every time. You’re muscles need rest, and when working out certain muscles, they need a regeneration time of about 24 – hours. Another thing is that… It’s enough with 3-4 work outs a week. When I say work outs I mostly refere to strength training, because you can do cardio, or just go for a run almost anytime. At least as summer comes along, the feeling of running in the sun is basically like an orgasm 😀

Image

Finishing up this part I’ll share my working out preferences. I have a routine on when I work out each week and there’s no slacking. I have gotten a lot of help from a friend; Lasse who is studying sport. You never say no to a personal trainer, hehe 😀 He’s pushing me a lot and I like that, because you provide so much more when you’re under pressure.

MY PLAN

MONDAY: Sh’bam & BodyBalance (mix of. TaiChi, Yoga, Strength and Pilates)

TUESDAY: Strength training w/Lasse

SATURDAY: Cardio/Strenght w/Lasse

This plan works perfectly for me and my preferences. I really love running, and actually dancing too (who would’ve guessed) and this work out plan is a mixture of that. On Monday I get to dance and improve my balance and strength. On Tuesday I get pure strength training and at last on Saturday I get a majored training on cardio and endurance, and a little bit of strength as well. Aside from the work out plan, I have dancing on friday at school, and I also have a really active life already. I also walk a lot, take the stairs instead of the elevator and take small decisions that makes the day more solid and active. That last pointer is something everybody could do just to get started on an active lifestyle. 😀

Wow… Now I’ve finished part #2 and this part is a part I’m actually really happy with. Do share your thoughts and your workout plans and everything that has something with exercise and working out to do! 😀

Enjoy This Beautiful Week! ❤
