I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas eve and Christmas day, or just had a wonderful "day" even if you dont celebrate :) I have had a lovely 48 hours and havent had time to blog as well as not having internet on my computer, but i thought now when i do have internet i would make a quick post about my Christmas.
In Sweden we celebrate on the 24th, so on Saturday morning i was up before everyone else and went out for a walk before i returned home and ate a christmas breakfast with my family. Then we had Christmas present opening, and i got some lovely gifts from my family such as a subscription for a vegan recipe magazine, also a chance to try out ninja/extreme obstacle course training with my sister, as well as some hair and body products which were all vegan and creutly free - apart from one product.
Then when all that was done we packed our stuff and the food we had prepared and drove out to my step dads parents place where we ate a christmas lunch and then we played some board games and such before it was bed time! All together a lovely day!!
Today, the 25th also started with a morning walk while listening to a podcast before i ate breakfast and then spent the next 4 hours studying. It had not been my plan to study at all, but as no one else was awake and i had no internet i figured "why not" and i find my studying so interesting so for me its no problem to study as i love learning more! And after that i ended up taking a nap and then woke up and ate my second lunch (as the others had eaten lunch while i slept), and then it was just family time before we ate dinner together and now there is some random old swedish film on TV which my family are watching while i blog!! Today has been another great day, but i am glad that christmas and christmas celebrations are over with now!!
And just like usual... i cant seem to avoid the food, weight and appearance comments such as "wow i eat so much", "am i really eating again", "i look too muscular", "girls arent strong enough so i'll lift the bag" etc etc and now i couldnt avoid the vegan questions either or the talk about hunting and fishing at the dinner table which made me lose my appetite completly (But it was just to eat nonetheless and tune out the conversation), and of course there was diet and weight and exercise talk during dinner but those dont bother me anyway. Those conversations dont trigger me, its just that i get tired of them.... i get tired that "normal and healthy" people have to bring up those conversations as well. Cant people just eat without commenting about what others are eating or talking about "good" food or "bad" food... its that type of thinking and conversations that triggers and can lead to other people developing negative food thoughts when others keep promoting that type of thinking. Its hard to formulate myself in words, but its just tiring and i know i amnt the only one who can feel that way during family gatherings... where the conversations are just tiring, hahahah. Luckily i could avoid the whole "are you single/in a realtionship", or "what happened with your ex?" conversations, haha.
Anyway, to not make this post too long I am just going to add a bunch of photos from my Christmas celebrations, and i hope that you have all had a lovely Christmas and comment below how you spent your Christmas :)
