My spring jacket and more delicious food β˜‰

This is the first day this year that I wear my spring jacket. Feels awesome! 15 degrees celcius and a bit cloudy. Perfect weather to go shopping 😊

We had a lot of fun in Jânkâping, lots of shopping, playing and just having a good time. After we went back home we had some fries at my favourite diner again. 😍

30 years of hating myself β€

A friend triggered me into thinking a little this morning. I realized that after having spent around 30 years absolutely hating myself and hating my entire body and face – hating everything about me – I still have a long way to go. 🌟

But I will not give up, I am still on my journey, it is a never ending journey. Some days I feel better about myself and some days I don’t. I am making slow and steady progress. It is all in my head, all about my thoughts, and I have already come such a long way! 10 years ago I was a completely different person (even though I looked exactly the same ). These things cannot be seen, it is an insecurity within. ❀

Lovely hair with Body Shop’s banana shampoo πŸŒ

I adore Body Shop’s banana shampoo and banana hair mask. It has the most delicious scent and it feels so good for my hair.

The key to my happiness? Chocolate 🀣 πŸŒΉ

For more than 15 years I have eaten 1-2 kilos of milk chocolate every week. Chocolate has been my way of soothing myself into feeling better.

When I was a little girl I used to mix flour with sugar and butter and eat, or candy, cookies… or anything else that was sweet that I could find. I even bought ginger bread dough and hid in my room. 🀣

When I had given birth to my baby girl ( in 2014 ) my desire for milk chocolate went away and I started craving Nutella instead. I ate more than 50 kilos of Nutella during my first 5 months after giving birth. 🀣 Then I got pregnant again (in 2016) and got a new craving; powdered vanilla flavoured sugar. I ate lots of it! For almost 2 years. Now my craving is mud cake – kind of like a sticky chocolate cake. I have made one mud cake every evening for the past couple of weeks now.

I have always used food as a way to sooth myself and celebrate the moment.

Choose what feels best to you and allow your body to thrive πŸŒ±

It is not so much about the choices you make, the food you eat or what remedies you might try but how you feel about the choices you make that makes all the difference.

How you feel and what you think and believe affects everything that happens to you – even the way your body responds and how it reacts.

Don’t compare yourself with others and the results they are getting – use the good-feeling examples of others as a source of inspiration and follow what you feel most called to. Listen to how you feel about the different paths avaliable and work on feeling good about the choices you make. 🌱

Break free from your eternal winter – it is time for you to thrive β€

Act like you love yourself β€

Tend to your most important relationship and all other topics will work out beautifully well for you β€

Afraid of carbs? No, I love carbs!

This is what my breakfast looks like. Two sandwiches with peanutbutter and jelly. I always have a big glass of rice milk with that. The other 7 sandwishes I bring to work – as snacks and lunch. (If I don’t eat lunch at a restaurant with my boyfriend like I did today: )

White rice was the foundation, then lots of gravy and vegetarian alternatives. Lovely!

When I get home in the afternoon we have dinner together – my plate is filled up with white rice, gluten free pasta or potatoes as a basis. I add a lot of gravy and veggies.

After dinner at home I always have two more sandwishes a few hours later, and a big glass of rice milk. Sometimes I also choose something else as a late night snack – it depends on if I get hungry again or not.

I am pretty much a carb lover – it is what suits me best. I always listen to my body and what I feel would be most delicious to me in the moment. I follow my bliss.

Your body has the potential of being as young and as vital as it has ever been β€

Mind over matter – it is all in the attitude. What thoughts are you thinking daily about your body, your health, your vitality and on all topics in your life? It may seem insignificant but it is the little daily thoughts that matter the most. These thoughts affect how you view everything in your life and most importantly, they affect how you feel.

Fountain of youth begins within, with the thoughts you choose to think daily – about all topics. Not just about yourself, your body and your health but your thoughts about everything.

Each time you think in lackful ways – no matter the subject – it takes its toll on you and your body. And you can do something about that! ❀
