Sunday 4th advent and it's 12 degrees in Stockholm. .... crazy. I remember back in 2010, my first winter in Sweden in 10 years and it was absaloutly crazy. -20 and so much snow and it didn't help that back then I was constantly cold due to low body weight and fat percent. ... it was a horrible winter, but now.... well I can actually wear tights again ^-^ I love it. Though feels a bit strange that it's so "warm" but the middle of December!
Anyway, today I started my day with a tough workout with my sister. Or well, first I had to entertain myself for an hour as she was late so then it was a mix of powerwalking, stair climber and some technique practise before she arrived and then the actual workout began. I call it 10-10-10. I.e 10 exercises, 10 reps of each and 10 rounds of that! ! I knew it was going to be tough and I warned my sister but I told her to just do what she was capable of,even if that meant 2 burpees instead of 10! But she worked super hard and adjusted the reps to her capability and did 7 rounds, but as I had set the challenge and workout for myself I did all 10 reps and 10 rounds even if I wanted to lie on the floor after the 4th round ^-^ afterwards I had to just lie down for a while before I could muster the energy to get changed!!! But it was super fun and I'm glad I worked out together with my sister, it's always fun with company!!!
On the way home I also bought a chocolate box for my family.... or well, I wanted one or two pieces so thought might as well pretend I'm doing it to be kind to my family ^-^ Hahah. .. the white chocolate was mine of course :)
This evening we're having a family dinner and watching a film. But first. ... a nap as I am exhausted, luckily I can blame it on my medication which makes me tired :) but who knew I would be 2o years old and rely on naps ^-^ Hahahah ha. Life's going to be tough when I'll be working 8-10 hours or in university from 8-5 and even more studying on top of that. ... but more reason to take naps while I can :) :)
I'm not even ashamed of napping anymore, I mean who wouldn't want to take a little while just to sleep in the middle of the day :) of course it may seem weird when i say I don't have time for certain things, but I am so mentally tired from my medication that even if I didn't nap I wouldn't get anything productive done anyway! !! ^-^
*change of plans had to help out with dinner so no nap ^-^ *
Below some photos my sister took while I worked out/afterwards. One sweaty mess ^-^ I don't usually post these types of photos, so hope it's ok for this post! :)
