    No ‘New Year, New Me’ bullshit

    Happy 2020! Finally a new year, and finally a new decade. Every new year I have this feeling of freshness. I’m not a big new year’s fan but I like the idea of a new year. Anything is possible (though, it always is)! And this feeling of freshness is often disturbed by all the things I read online, things I hear on the radio or from clients. We all believe anything is possible, but it often has to do with our looks, or how we have to change ourselves to fit in to this little box that we call society. Going to a fitness class this time of year and…

    From me to all of you: Have A Merry (stress-free) Christmas!

    The holidays are here, and the stress surrounding it is probably visiting as well! Stress is one of my biggest triggers for a massive flare-up. Many things play a part in my flare-ups, and sometimes it’s hard to tell which one is which – but stress is definitely one! Stress from going everywhere – being on time, spending time with family (God we love em’, but if you’re a lone wolf, introvert, or just simply need your alone-time it can be a freaking nightmare), getting in the car too quickly (whoops! A tear!), fighting with people in the grocery store – you get the picture. Stress we put on ourselves…

    Cashew and pumpkin seed bar

    I am not a cook, and I’m definitely not a baker – but sometimes you just happen to make something delicious and you just want to share it with everyone! The other week I thought I’d make some “healthy” bars to help me through long days at work, and also something that is beneficially for my body. This bar contains heaps of healthy fats which are good for the skin, hormones and for the brain! Makes about 10 bars: Ingredients: 2 cups cashews 2 cups oats 1 cup pumpkin seeds 15 soaked pitted dates 2 tbsp raw cacao 2 tbsp extra virgin coconut oil Maybe a little bit of water…

    Hearty apple crumble for either breakfast or dessert

    Fall is here – no need to dwell,  the delicious apples are here as well! See what I did there, hu? Went to the farmers markets the other week and got myself a big bag of apples that there was NO way I was gonna finish in time before they would go bad. So apple crumble it was. I am a big fan of breakfast and it’s my favorite part of the day (sad or not? That is the question). So I knew that I wanted to make an apple crumbled that I could eat for breakfast and eat as dessert – another favorite part of the day. So this…

    Pelvic pain & lower back pain

    I’m a happy person. I like being happy. I thrive when my happiness takes over my cells and gives me goose bumps allover. When the pain really affects me it’s like I become a completely different person. Everyone who knows me knows the energy that surrounds me when I am in pain, when I am not thriving. I have had really bad lower back pain for 13 years now, and my pelvic pain has been around for 11 years. I don’t know if I should really call it “my” pelvic pain, because I kind of take ownership of it in a way. I have a body, but I am a…

    Lichen Sclerosus & Maca root

    I’m always trying to find new, natural ways to help my Lichen Sclerosus, and one thing that has popped up is Maca. Maca is a native plant, a herb, grown in Peru. I never knew anything about Maca, and why it is good for you – but then I went to a health food store where a lovely lady introduced me to it. And since you all know that I am very open about most stuff, including my lovely yoni (life wouldn’t be as fun without it), I asked her what I could use for my vaginal issues and she introduced me to Maca. Currently I cannot find any research…

    Pelvic pain & oxalates

    When I went to my exercise physiologist for pelvic pain she lent me this book written about pelvic pain, can’t remember what is was called though? So if someone out there reads these types of books, please send me a DM with the titles. Because it was SO good and informative – and I wish they would have given this to me when I was twenty, because o’boy would that have helped me! Anyway, in this book I read about oxalates for the first time – and that they May have an impact on pelvic pain. Oxalates are present in the body, but they are also found in food such…

    For what reason do you eat?

    For what reason do you eat? This might seem like a basic question to most of you, but is it really? Yes, we eat to stay alive, but I believe we eat for different reasons. Maybe you eat to honor your body. Maybe you eat because you don’t like it (or the lack of eating). Maybe you eat to heal your body, mentally or physically. Maybe you eat to overcome a trauma, a breakup or your depression. Maybe you eat to fuel your body for a workout or a competition. Maybe you have a goal. Maybe you don’t. Maybe you don’t think about what you eat at all. Maybe you…

    Walk like you love your body

    I often hear people say ”I’m wearing this tracking device, fancy thing, to get to 10 000 steps a day”, which I think is great – then they continue their thought with ”Because I need to lose weight” or ”Because I eat too much of this or that.” If you just stop for a second and pretend like your weight isn’t defying you (because it’s not) and that you are as much worthy as any other woman or man that you are comparing your body to (because you are) – Do you know how much you benefit from walking and physical activity? Your bones will benefit from it (less physical…

    One thing you could skip this Christmas (definitely not the chocolate)

    The stress regarding your body image and what food you put in your body. One thing I would advise you to skip this Christmas is the stress regarding how much you eat and how you afterwards have to ”get rid of it”. We all know that what we put in our body needs to be used as energy to prevent the risk of gaining weight. Energy in – energy out. And this Christmas you might eat more than you intended to, as most people do every year. And that is okay. And you do not have to justify it with ”the new year is coming and I am going to lose…
