Hej!

Yesterday I used my new gym card for the 3rd time. And tomorrow I am going back there again to see a PT and get a personalised training program written so that mine and Chris' Bali Bodies challenge becomes reality.

We only did a light, cardio centered workout consisting of:
  • 1 min of fast-pasted boxing
  • 10 bent over rows, 15kg
  • 1 min fast-pasted step-ups
  • 20 lunges (10 each leg) with 2x10kg dumbbells
  • 10 burpees
    for 3 sets


Today, however, has been spent avoiding anything that even resembles exercise. Some fine examples are; watching more OITNB that what can be considered healthy, eating breakfast for dinner and playing The Witcher 3 although we already finished it + all DLCs :)

Until next time
Hejdå!

Hej!

Got an early start to the morning today (8:00 is early, right?) as me and Alice-Maria were traveling into Cardiff so that a, she could pick up her driver's licence from the Swedish consulate, and b, so we could drown ourselves in Swedishness and visit IKEA. Actually felt really good to leave Swansea for a bit and do some "exploring". As one must when visiting IKEA, A-M and I devoured a plate of meatballs before the shopping began, although it turned out to become more of a food-shop than anything else.

Once back in Swansea at around 16, I could not help but to fall asleep right away (and who could blame me? Shopping is serious business). Once I had woken up, me and Chris decided that we should go to the cinema, to see La La Land, and take the opportunity to also have some cheeky Nando's beforehand. I am not going to lie, La La Land was nice. The music is absolutely amazing and it leaves you with the urge to skip all the way back home. BUT: there is just something with artsy movies, especially artsy musicals, that is just lost on me. It is like I cannot see what everyone else sees in them. Why do they start flying in the middle of everything? I just do not get it. Could someone care to explain?

Until next time

Hej!

Yesterday was dedicated to three things: brunching, baking and spending some quality time with my friend Alice-Maria.

With February comes an old baking tradition in Sweden, that entails that one bakes and eat a treat called a "semla". A semla is a sweet bun made of the same dough as a cinnamon bun with the addition of crushed cardamom. Once baked the bun is filled with almond paste and topped with whipped cream. It is also common (mostly for aesthetic reasons) to sprinkle powdered sugar on top, as seen in the picture to the right.

Me and Alice-Maria also managed to find fresh yeast (!!!) at Tesco (!!!) in Swansea (!!!). For anyone not living in Swansea: this is usually impossible. Last year mom had send me some from Sweden by mail. I know that people here use either dried yeast or self-raising flour, but I find they are neither as easy to use nor as effective.

Until next time
Hejdå!

Hej!

It is now signed, sealed and delivered! On the 1st of October 2017 I move in to this beauty of an apartment which I will live in until the end of my studies. I am already planning out and looking up studio interior design ideas on Pinterest. But that will have to be in another post.

I am planning on moving things abound a little.
Firstly, why is the sofa in the way of the bed? And why is the sofa in the direction of the kitchen instead of the TV? I plan on placing the sofa in the middle of the room, closer to the TV, and then moving the desk out of the way.

Secondly, there is not really any place to sit down and eat, is there? So, the plan is to but a small table with 2-3 chairs behind the sofa. That way I can eat breakfast and watch Netflix at the same time! Genius, right? 😉

Thirdly and lastly (for now), I want to somehow create the illusion that there is a bedroom within the studio. The best solution that I have come up with is to apply a tension curtain rod, and a curtain, from one side of the room to the other. The rod would be placed between the walls parallel to the bed as seen in the larger picture.

What do you think? Any suggestions?

Until next time!
Hejdå!
