Att tanka bilen

Jag sitter i bilen på väg till flygplatsen, Charlie, min chaffõr säger vi måste tanka.

Det är fredag eftermiddag vilket innebär TRAFIK! Charlie korsar en väg istället för att spara tid. Bensinmackskillen blir sur för att vi genade och bestämde sig för att vi inte skulle få tanka. Det står en madame några meter bort, Charlie får gå till henne, be om ursäkt för att han genade men hon sa fortf. nej.

Jag öppnade mitt fönster, sa med tårar i ögonen att jag ville hem och träffa min familj. Han gav efter att jag tjatat med sig och vi fick tanka bilen....

Kattis nails...

On of my childhood friends, that I still love dearly, probably has the nicest nails in Sweden. She has naturally perfect nails. I went to have a pedi today and I took a before and after picture to show you, im to embarrassed to show the before picture. Its bad when the pedicurist holds up a file and says, "Have you ever seen one of these??" (she wasn’t joking and she didn’t mean it in a rude way!!!) Well, since everyone can’t have as perfect nails as Kattis, I have decided to only show you the after picture...

Saturday was spent feeding the monkeys at the conservation center, a really fat monkey saw us first and ate all the bananas we brought without telling his "friends". lol! Every second bite he looked up to see if he had been discovered yet...

Im getting there...

My workout yesterday consisted of 30 minutes interval training on the treadmill and then biceps and abs.

Abs-exercise: Legs in the air, pointing straight. 15 sit-ups, rest for 10 seconds and then cross your legs in the other direction and do 15 more.
Repeat. 2 times. After 3 weeks of training I can actually both see and feel the difference. I notice that I’m getting stronger and I can now run faster for a longer time without rest.
I’m not used to be using weights when I’m exercising, usually I just run and do sit-ups. Hussein have taken it to the next level, we are using weights in most of the routines and I’m really enjoying it!
I can see the difference on my arms and legs, (very small, but yet there). I’m quite choked how quickly one can build muscles and strength.

We have been training 3 times a week for 3 weeks with Hussein.

My guards

Last sunday the guards in my complex wanted me to come and take a picture with them. The fotographer had a old system camera and the organised us with me in the middle. He took one picture and yesterday I got a printed, framed version from them as a gift! They had made two versions and put one up in their "office" on the wall.

My husband and I went to the gym this morning and afterwards I made breakfast, Anders made the decision to have ice in the cereals in the hope of that it would cool him down...
