Hørt i centeret // Heard in the gym

Hold op, hvor hører man bare nogle åndsvage kommentarer i centeret (underforstået: fitness centeret) en gang i mellem. Jeg træner ofte alene – og så kan man altså ikke undgå at opfange små dele af andres samtaler. De fleste sjove kommentarer kommer fra nybegynderne, så de er selvfølgelig lidt undskyldt.. men derfor kan jeg nu alligevel ikke lade være med at grine, når der bliver sagt åndssvage ting. Her får I lige et par eksempler fra de sidste par dage:

  1. ”Squat? Er det ikke en øvelse der kun er for drenge?”

Åhh jeg kunne altså ikke lade være med at smile og tænke, ”Bare vent min pige.. Squats bliver din booty’s nye bedste ven!”

  1. ”Altså jeg vil nok mest lave konditionstræning. Jeg gider ikke være sådan en med store arme.”

Nåårh ja, for det er jo sindssygt let at få store arme?? Jeg har snart løftet vægte i snart 2 år og mine biceps ligner stadig nogle små tøsemuller, haha. (De bliver stærkere, men ikke særlig meget større…)

  1. ”Er det den der maskine, der giver en stram fisse?”

Ja, det blev faktisk sagt – højt, så man kunne høre det i hele centeret. Gud,, hvor havde jeg svært ved at holde masken! (det blev for resten sagt om hip abductorene)

Jeg synes, det er meget sødt – og uskyldigt. De opdager forhåbentlig snart hvor fantastisk ”fitnessverdenen” egentlig er. Har i selv overhørt nogle sjove kommentarer?

Pictures from here, here, here and here

My gym has gotten a lot of new members during the last few weeks. That means A LOT OF new beginners! They are sweet, and they are innocent, but the surely have some stupid (funny) comments. They don’t have any experience, so they are excused, of course! But sometimes it is just too entertaining, and then I cant help smiling. I’ll give you some examples that will bright up this rainy Saturday:

  1. ”Squat? I thought that was only an exercise for boys?”

Ohh, I couldn’t help thinking ” Just wait sweetie.. Squats will become your booty’s best friend!”

  1. ”I’m a cardio girl, I’ll only do cardio. I don’t want big arms.”

Okay then, tell me about how easy it is to get big arms? I’ve been lifting for two years now, and my arms haven’t grown much. They are stronger yes, but not much bigger.

  1. ”Is that the machine that gives you a tight vagina?”

Yes, someone said that. Out loud. Everybody heard it. Omg, I almost couldn’t keep a straight face. (this was said about the hip abductors by the way)

I don’t know why, but I find this very cute, lol. Hopefully these girls will soon discover the real ”fitness world”.
How about you guys? Have you overheard some stupid comments?

Chickpea omelet

Skærmbillede 2014-09-06 kl. 14.57.40I made this a long time ago, but the recipe never made it to the blog. That is a shame, so here it is!
Ingredients:
– 1 whole egg + one egg white
– 100g of canned chickpeas
– 1 tsp. Salt
– A bit of olive oil for the pan
– Toppings: bell pepper, grated carrot, cottage cheese and extra chickpeas.
How to:
– Blend the egg and the egg white with the chickpeas and the salt.
– Cook the mixture like a pancake on a pan (middle heat). You can use some olive oil, so it doesn’t stick.
– When it gets a bit structure you can flip it easily.
– Arrange it on a plate and top it with your favorite veggies

Low Carb Pizza

Hallo out there!

Just thought I would pop in to share a little (and easy) recipe. I find that this can be eaten for lunch, dinner or even breakfast. I mean, who doesn’t love pizza right?

Today has been an easy day. I woke up at 8am and went out for brunch with some of my favorite girls. I only had one class at school – chemistry, my favorite (actually I’m thinking about becoming a doctor? Just an idea.) Later I’ll go to the gym – it is cardio day, so I’m taking two classes. It’s gonna be horribly hard, but I LOVE cardio classes at the moment – the music is loud and the instructor is amazing!

Anyways.. Back to the recipe:

Image

Ingredients:
–       1 egg + 2 egg whites
–       a little oil for the pan
–       2 tbsp. tomato paste
–       5-6 pieces of sliced chicken
–       40 g cheese (I used 10%)

How to:
Beat and mix the eggs gently. Spread the oil on a medium heated pan, and cook the eggs like an omelet. Flip it around and add the fillings. Then leave pan on low heat and cover it with a piece of tin foil. Wait about 10 minutes and viola! The cheese is melted! Now arrange the pizza with lots of fresh veggies and ENJOY!

Perfect lunch on a Monday

What’s up guys? Are you enjoying this Monday? I sure am. My first classes were canceled, so I went for a short run in the early sunshine. (Okay.. the weather wasn’t that great, but anyways..) My mind wanted to go for a looong run, but I have trouble with my left hip and I have to be careful. After school I killed my back, triceps and abs at the gym! (Those gains better start coming!!!)

I had this PERFECT lunch as my post run meal! I won’t call it a recipe, just thought it could be an inspiration. Healthy doesn’t have to be boring.

Yes, I’m Angry

Hey Guys!

Am I the only one who is SICK and TIRED of these memes? I mean, who are you to tell me what I should look like? For some reason it has become okay to accuse people of being too skinny? Why? Telling people they are too fat has NEVER been OK, then why is THIS suddenly approvable?

And seriously? What’s with the men? Men want this, not that blablablabla… This is my body! I look like I want! Not the way some random man want’s me to look like. Isn’t that what’s important? That I feel happy about myself? Should I really try to look a certain way, just because “men” want a “woman with curves”? I know these images were probably made to help women feel better about them selves (and their extra kilos) but isn’t it doing the exact opposite?

These images make me think about the “men’s” roll in this beauty ideal conflict. Are men really the reason why women all over the world starve them selves and go on crazy diets? Are men really the reason why we go to the gym for hours each week? NO! They shouldn’t be! Healthy living isn’t a punishment! We should be working out and eating healthy because it makes us feel good, not to attract the most men. If he really loves you, he wont care about those kilos, right?

I’m saying this to myself as well as you guys. I need to remember this too. All our bodies are different – some are born with curves, some with muscle and some might be born “boney”.

For some girls these memes/images might be a confidence boost, but for others they can be very hurtful.

HALF MARATHON !!!

Hey everybody!

Image

Wuuuuhuuuu! I am officially the HAPPIEST girl in the world! Can you guess why??? Yes, I did it! I ran my very first half marathon, my first 21.097 km! After 4 months of training – we have been running in snow, minus degrees, rain, wind, after long school/work days and sometimes very late at night. Oh man! It was the biggest succes when I crossed that finish line, I almost cried of relief.

The day started at 7.30pm with a big bowl of oatmeal and a LOT of water. I knew it was gonna be a warm day so I made sure to drink enough! At 9am I got on the train with my friend. We sure weren’t the only runners in that train! It was filled with hopeful and enthusiastic runners, who were just as exited as I was. An hour later we reached the start area, which was filled with people. My friend and I found a spot to sit down, shared a banana and drank some energy drink. The sun was shining from a clear sky and everything was perfect. I wore my favorite clothes, my ankle was bound tightly (see why in earlier posts) and my running shoes were tied.
At 11 o’clock we were all ready to go! I remember standing there between the 7500 other runners. The music was playing in my ears, my hands were shaking of excitement and I felt AMAZING!
I ran the first two kilometers a bit quicker than expected, but I had to get out of a huge group of people. After that I slowed down and found a perfect pace, which I kept almost the entire run. I must say though.. I ran into a physical barrier at the 15 km sign. Uhh it was hard! The sweat was dripping from my fore head because of the heat and my legs felt tired. Luckily it only lasted about 3-4 kilometers – I just ran right through it! Instead of focusing on the negatives I tried to imagine how it would feel to cross the finish line. THAT really helped!
1 hour and 53 minutes and it was over. I had crossed the line and it felt SO MUCH BETTER than I had ever imagined. It was unbelievable! My dream (which I had worked so hard for) had come true. Yeah, I guess it is a feeling I cant describe.

Today I’m am very very sore.. everything hurts – my quards, my back, my hips, even my shoulders and arms! Haha! Better sore than sorry right? 😀

If anyone is interested in my time and pace:
