Almost Christmas

This weekend have been really relaxing so far. Watched a bunch of movies (many Christmas movies so I’m longing for Christmas now! Feels weird that I’m not going home to Sweden and my family and friends, but will have a great Christmas here with my love!)
But I feel like the time is going pretty fast, it’s almost week 10 of fall term and December! Excited about the future; with travels and the tennis season coming up and more! Just hope I can be injury free 🙂

We made some brownies that turned out well!

And we did some weights 💪

Tomorrow it’s the first advent in Sweden, so I hope everyone at home eats lots of gingerbread cookies and light up all the candles and light you can find 🙂

Thanksgiving Weekend

Have almost a whole week of from school and practices now, thanks to Thanksgiving, which we in Sweden do not celebrate… Feels really good and I hope it will be enough time for my foot to get better! If it hasn’t gotten any better next Wednesday I will get an MRI, but hopefully it will get better before that! Not going anywhere over the weekend, going to spend it here in Eugene with Daan. Just relax, do some weights, some shopping (BLACK FRIDAY!), cook some good food and watch a lot of movies 🙂

Right now I’m actually doing some homemade müsli/granola. Just a few minutes left in the oven. It’s the first time I’m doing the müsli in the states hehe. Will see if it turns out as good as it does at home!

here is a link to a older blog post with the recipe to the müsli:

Nike addict

Went to the Natural Grocers store this morning just to get some new ideas for food and I found this pumpkin spice tea from Celestial. It tastes like candy! For sure a new favorite! I have a lot of school to do this week so the tea will stay by my side while I’m studying!

I also got all the Nike clothes I ordered the other day, and I’m super happy with all of it. A pair of grey tights, a white v-neck t-shirt, and a bright pink/coral top with the text TNNS on (stands for tennis).

Back Attack

Did a morning back session today at the gym! Felt really good and I can feel that I am stronger (probably because I’ve gained some kilos since I came back to the states) and not done as much tennis/cardio these last weeks.

This is what I did today, mostly back but also some abs exercises:

  • Single-arm DB row 5 sets each
  • Wide lats pulldown (front) 5 sets
  • DB Flies 5 sets
  • Cable Row 5 sets
  • Back extension on ball 5 sets
  • Wide lat pulldown (behind) 5 sets
  • Feet on ball and roll the ball back and forth 5 sets (don’t know the name for this exercise)
  • Cable cross row 4 sets
  • Plank on ball 3 sets
  • Narrow cable lat pulldown 5 sets
  • T’s and W’s on bench 5 sets each

-and then I biked easy for 15 minutes while watching ESPN hehe

I also took a gym-selfie haha trying to see if my back actually have improved or not.. 🙂

Those legs!

Did my leg workout today instead, and had a really tough and good workout! My legs are actually already sore haha, must have pushed myself! 🙂

This is what I did:
-Squats 12 sets (increased the weight and decreased the reps)
-push press superset with -good mornings 4 sets
-leg press 4 sets
-leg press single leg 4 sets each
– abductor superset -adductor 4 sets
-deadlifts 3 sets
-leg extensions 3 sets
And then my legs were so tired I could barely walk haha. Did 10 minutes cool down on the bike and then stretch. The whole workout including the biking took me like an hour.
