IT IS FRIDAY NIGHT, I AM the only one left at the office and I AM the only person left in the gym. I am not a mad workaholic that has gone insane, I am just very dedicated to the things that are important to me, haha… Monday is the first stop on our big tour around Sweden. I have in total booked around 5000 students and we have some of the largest companies in the world with us! IT IS FREAKIN INSANE! So you probably understand why the Project Manager is still at the office late and hitting the gym, when all the ”normal” people are celebrating the weekend. I can´t belive this is it! We are about to make this massive project happen….
Time to hit the gym again and then back to the office, I just cannot relax right now, too many antz in my pantz! Enjoy your Saturday guys!
Ps. Don´t forget Earth Hour tonight 20.30PM -21.30PM local time!!!!!!! Switch of the lights for the planet, let´s not compromise future generations right to this earth!
When you achieve something great reward yourself! Something I have learned during my years of studying is the importance of celebrating your success. I´m one of those people who is already on the next goal before I even celebrate and reward myself for the one I just achieved. What I have started to do is to decide the reward for a particular goal before I have even achieved it. This way I can force myself to take a moment and celebrate my achievements, and not rush into the next thing without rewarding myself for all the hard work. It is so important to reward yourself for all the hard work you do!
I have been craving new chucks for a long time and this was my reward for working so hard at work and lifting 80 kg with no problem.

Do I look BIG and BULKY? Well I wouldn´t describe myself as big nor bulky, more like toned. Toned isn´t that what most girl wants to be? Toned and defined muscles but not too much. Well if I told you that I deadlifted 80 kg today for 6 reps x 4 sets after squatting 50 kg for 8 reps x 4 sets would you believe me? Lifting heavy can absolutely get you big and bulky, but it can also get you lean and toned!
If you could half the time you spend in the gym and at the same time double your results, would you believe me? I have experimented on myself for such a long time now with both high reps and light weight versus low reps and heavy weights. Lifting heavy seriously works effectively! Again, I believe in minimal breaks between exercises as well as a balanced diet that won´t get you bulky.
It was such an amazing rush lifting that weight today!
This is what I am doing right NOW!
This is ”Day 1″ on my new program – I´m loving lifting heavy and lower reps at the moment! Notice that I have NO BREAK or just the time it takes to walk to the next exercise. That is one of my secrets to stay Fashionablefit! I have designed this program so that I have a three – day – split. This means that I have three different routines that I rotate over the week, so this week I will be doing ”Day 1″ and ”Day 2″ two times this week. That way I´m adding up to my five sessions. Get it?
You know what to do if you want to get on a Fashionablefit training program and get your hands on the two missing days :)
Remember my post ”MUFFINS THAT GETS RID OF YOUR MUFFIN TOP”?
Here is a reminder of this awesome recipe:

Enjoy my Fashionablefit muffins!
Strappy heels from ZARA – Do I need to say anything more?
”On average, organic is 25% more nutritious in terms of vitamins and minerals than products derived from industrial agriculture. Since on the average, organic food’s shelf price is only 20% higher than chemical food, this makes it actually cheaper, gram for gram, than chemical food, even ignoring the astronomical hidden costs (damage to health, climate, environment, and government subsidies) of industrial food production.” – Organicconsumers.org
After having really interesting conversations with my friend yesterday I got inspired to post this pic. I just believe it is so important to understand the difference between organic food and industrial food production. You may not feel a difference but there is a HUGE difference. If you have the time and you are one of those who belive there is not a big difference please read this >>
Have a great lazy Sunday!
// ANKLE BOOTS, ZARA / / PANTS, ZARA //
TIME FOR A CONFESSION – I think I´m a ZARA junky!!! One of the biggest trends you will se this spring and summer is cropped pants. I love the detailing with the gold buttons. The pants are in store NOW!
Time to get down to some serious training business! I have really neglected my training the last two weeks, so I´m really excited to get back into it. Next week is the week before we hit the roads with the ”Sustainability tour” (Hållbarhetsturnén), so I really have to make up for lost time this week. I´m pumpped, untz untz!!!!!

TODAY SUCKS! Cameron is going back to Australia today….. I promise that I will be back tomorrow with my positive attitude. I will be very sad but still focusing on all the positive things in my life at the moment. I know I will see him soon again (not that I think two months is soon enough) but I´m so sick of saying goodbye to people I love. So today SUCKS!
During sad and depressing times I always try to keep my diet clean. The last thing you need is to feel even more depressed over all that comfort food you just consumed. I believe that the good things in life are our rewards for working so damn hard. Using rewards when you are feeling blue will most likely just get you feeling even more blue. Eat junk and crap when you are happy is a pretty good principle!
Enjoy another Fashionablefit meal!
