Hi all,

Sorry I've been lacking in updating my blog this past week. This past Saturday me and Edison went to Yosemite over the day. It was so much fun and so relaxing! We have been planning this hiking trip for awhile now but for some reason we have always had to reschedule.... We left around 9.30am, got there 2 hours later, and went for a 6 mile hike. We would've went further but we got there so late and didn't wanna drive home in the dark, and 6 miles took about 2 hours with a break by the river. Also, Edison was craving tacos and beer the whole hike so we wouldn't have been able to go much further. When we got back to Fresno we obviously went to Edison's dad's and brother's taco shop Don Tachas!

Having a feeling this month is my month, cross your fingers that I'll get a job!! :) !

Got some Arctic Zero chocolate peanut butter ice cream at the store today. Heard a lot of good things about it and wanted to see how this "healthy" version of ice cream actually tasted.

... And it actually did taste very good and had a rich semi sweet chocolate peanut butter flavor. However, I did miss the real creamyness (if that's even a word) of real ice cream which I thought was missing. Although, I think this is a great alternative to regular ice cream for everyone having a sweet tooth at night. I know I do, at least. It's only 35 calories/serving vs. approx. 150 calories/ serving for regular ice cream.

In Sweden I've heard about many different healthy options for dessert with high protein and low sugar, but I haven't heard about many here in the states.. Does anyone know of any here in the U.S?

So much fun to finally get to play around with the ball after a couple of weeks with just gym, yoga and running. Definitely lost my touch a bit (as seen in the pics lol) so gonna try to incorporate some soccer drills into my regular training week now, to at least maintain my touches.

It's unfortunate that I had to put soccer aside once I graduated college. However, it's something I chose to do in order to be with my love and to take advantage of my 1 year working Visa here in the states. Definitely miss it, but should be out there soon again and can't wait for that day!

Last night we babysat Edison's brother's daughter Beli. She's so adorable and such a good kid, always a blast when we babysit her! So once Edison came home from his away game, we went out for dinner at Me-n-Ed's Pizza. followed by frozen yoghurt! When we got home, we just watched TV shows and relaxed until we fell asleep and in the morning we got woken up by Beli and Pepe jumping up in the bed wanting to cuddle. What a great day/night, my heart is full!

Graduation

3,5 months ago or 16 weeks ago, I graduated from Fresno State with a Bachelors of Science - International Business. Before I moved to the U.S I was "only" a C (G) student in English. Therefore, as a freshman I was struggling with adapting to the language and even understanding what my Professors were teaching us in class. As my days were filled with soccer practices, treatments/rehab, strength and conditioning, meetings, travel, study table etc. I felt like I was always running low on sleep in order for me to catch up on school work. Thanks to understanding and helpful friends, family, teammates, tutors, and professors, I managed to find a routine that worked for me. Once I got into managing my time well and planning my studies around my soccer life, I quickly adapted to the new language and school just became so much easier from that point on. That's when I started to set goals for myself, and really allow myself to excel as a business student and future business professional. Four years later I was absolutely ecstatic when I graduated with the highest school honors, Summa Cum Laude, Business Honors and NCAA Scholar-Athlete Honors. Through this experience I've definitely learned how goals can be achieved if you just want to. Literally, english was my worst subject back home in Sweden and here I am now.

Be yourself, push yourself, and don't let people bring you down! Set goals, whether it's in school, fitness goals, relationship goals or goals for your professional career. Be happy, work hard, be consistent and allow yourself to fail before you reach them! Anything is possible!

Nike Huarache 

This post has adlinks.

Been seeing so many people lately that wear these Nike Huaraches. A sandal ("Huarache") as a running shoe, weird right? Although, I wouldn't use these ones for running, as they don't have the same support as my new Asics does (which I LOVE!), rather I would use them for my everyday activities. I love number 1 and 3!!  The only bad thing is that I'm sooooo bad at keeping white shoes white.... 

Which ones would you guys choose?

Hello peeps,

Woke up feeling sick this morning so just been resting all morning. Feeling better now so went to cheer on CCC where Edison coaches. Thought it wouldn't be too hot sitting out here but I was so wrong! So I'm currently sitting it here in 90F (33C) sweating while trying to enjoy the game. I guess I can't complain, Edison used to sit during my games in 100F (45C) during my season so...

Yesterday I finished up painting our kitchen table and our chairs, so we finally have a good looking kitchen table! Yay! We also ended up using one of the five chairs, for the desk in the living room and gave away the brown looking one we had there.

It feels good getting our new place organized and get the decoration going. Next up is wall decorations. I have some different shaped frames (as seen in the last pictures), that I'm gonna try to put together in nice gallery wall! Let's see how that turns out!

Also, it would be awesome to know who you guys are and where you guys are from! Comment below and include your blog and social media too so I can check it out! 

Today's list

1. When you were younger, what did you wanna be when you grew up?

Lawyer, Professional Soccer player and owner of a chocolate factory lol.

2. Whats your best and worst subject in school?
I'm probably best in "fun" classes with a lot of numbers such as math, accounting stats.. Worst at artistic classes like music, drama, painting..

3. What did you do after high school?
Worked for a year at McDonalds (lol) and a telemarketing company before I left to study and play soccer at a college in Cali.

4. What was your first job?
Seller at Call-up, I believe.

5. What's your strong vs. weak sides as a character?
Strong side is probably that I'm very goal-driven and weak side probably that I'm impatient.

6. What would you want to work with if you didn't have the job you have today?
Well as of now I don't have a job, since I just got my Visa.But I'm looking to get a job in International or Social media marketing. However, I would absolutely love if I could play soccer at a professional level and live of off my blog on the side.

7. What would the worst job be for you?
Probably a job where you are a lot by yourself and don't interact with a lot of people on a daily basis. Maybe an author or something that's super hands-on like working in construction
.

8. 3 things you love to do 

1. Be active and train and play soccer. 2. Eat good food. Even though I eat pretty clean I seriously could never cut all the good food/candy/beverages out of my life. 3. Travel to new places. Wish I got the chance to travel more, especially to other countries, but haven't been a lot these past couple of years. Really want to go to Asia.
