Good things happens

DCIM100GOPROGOPR0994.I’ve experienced so much from I left Darwin and arrived in Sydney and I’ll about it in due time but the internet here is slow so I’d to wait until all my pictures was backed up before beginning to edit with them.

I arrived in Sydney Wednesday and have been busy spending my time with exercising, spending time with Fuzz on Bondi Beach and finding information for my future.

The sun is very strong in the morning so got my first sun burn from the chest and up even with 50+. The bnb I’m living in is so nice and relaxed and I love my butterfly/flower bed.

But! I had to make this post because these last days I’ve had some really amazing experiences:

  • Friday I was on the SUP board again and I didn’t fall into the water at all and there were waves = major progress in body control and strength – woo hoo
  • yesterday I wanted to buy a juice and it was a cash only place so while I went to an ATM a lady paid for my juice.
  • I learned that it’s pretty easy to get a student visa here in Australia, so tomorrow I’m going to Sydney to talk to three schools that teaches academic english. If I’m accepted I’ve a place to stay already.
  • I got my new swim suit today and it fits perfectly
  • today my flat mate told me to use her spices so I don’t have to buy new ones.
  • today I took a day off from boot camp and I’ve been working on my pictures and especially on starting my little side business on redbubbles selling my pictures and designs. Therefore I’m begging for help to spread the word. You don’t have to buy anything but please help me promote my stuff.
  • I’ve found three organic shops in Bronte/Bondi where I live and spend most of my time.

Things are lucking a little brighter so I’m very happy and grateful.

 

 

 

 

A lot on my plate

Dearest all of you.

I’ll be quiet the next days but I’m carrying on with my Pro Life Actions. My life is one big chaos right now in the good way. Since my commune closes and I’ve to be out the 13th of December I’m working hard on getting ready to move.

This weekend I’ve sold/given away a lot of my stuff. Soon I’ll only have what I’m travelling with.

In my few hours of spare time I’m working hard on getting my personal papers digitalised and getting the papers I need in the future translated and certified.

At last but not least I’m contacting Australian authorities and universities to make future plans after my travelling are done.

This is a lot of work but I’m so happy to do it because it’s my dream 🙂

101 things to do when you survive

Greig at the Richmond hot choccie eventIn the last year 3 men have turned my life upside down in the good way both physically and mentally. One is my surftrainer Dean Gladstone, the other is my PT Niklas Wintherbo and the third is Greig Trout from 101 things to do when you survive.

It’s Greig Trout I want to tell you about here. He has an amazing story to tell about turning life around and you can read it on his web-page. I had the honour of meeting Greig in person on a hot summerday in July 2015 and had 4 absolutely amazing hours filled with fun, laughter, care and mutual understanding. Then again in September where I attended Greigs hot choccie event on Richmond Hill where I also met the 101-gang. It was a day filled with hugs, love, understanding and bonding. Even though I haven’t had cancer the dyspraxia etc. has given me my challenges and Greig and the amazing 101 gang have accepted me with open arms and lots of love.

Greig is the reason why I’ve stopped using the word Bucket list. The word has a focus on using the limited time before dying. Greig has chosen to focus on the things to do after he faught the cancer. This inspired me so much since I prefer to focus positively on the time I’ve in front of me. Therefore I’ve no Bucket list any more but a 101 things to do when you survive-list. I might have a couple of more things on my list than the 101 things 😀

 

 

Reach your exercise goals faster – Get a PT

When I returned from Australia in February I knew I had to change my life and one area was to get much stronger. In the autumn I was 2 months in bed and 3 months on crutches because of the shingles and it cost me a lot of strength. I needed that strength back and build an even stronger body than that. Therefore I got a PT and did the impossible possible 🙂 – read more about my experience and advice on getting a PT when you live with dyspraxia

When hating running turned into a love story

Screen Shot 2015-05-27 at 21.28.02I’ve tried so many time to start running and I hated it. It was boring, I felt that my legs wouldn’t cooperate etc. BUT – 1,5 week ago I started running.

Why? –

I need to get my legs working and I need them to be my friends. To succeed that I’ve  to make them stronger  and running is a good way. You might think they now. It started when I was on vacation and I was out on Bondi Beach on a S.U.P board – I want to learn to surf and be good at it and to do that I need strong legs. Beside that I want to start sand running when I move to Australia because I love the ocean and the feeling of the wet sand.

That means that this time I’m doing it because I want to and not because I’m pressured to do it or have to do it.

My strategy this time

First I signed up at a 5 km run in August – Color Me Rad, to award myself with a crazy run.

Second I bought light weight running shoes made for front feet running. No big heal, no support, no cement shoes helping gravity keeping my feet on the ground and lastly on sale. That is a good start I can tell you. (I read a lot of articles before chosing shoes and talked to my PT so I knew what I wanted).

Third I found a program to start on for beginners from a store here in Norway specialised in running shoes. I wanted to have a good start. Some days I’ve to walk up hill and run down and living on a mountain I’ve no problems finding roads with a good slant ;-D

Last I dragged myself out of the house and began running. The first times was on a scale on 1-10 about -50 in motivation because of my bad experiences in my past. I often did my running first and then ended it at the shopping center to have a goal to motivate myself. So I did my shopping and walked home again.

To avoid tight muscles I use trigger point because else my PT will torture me once a week with his kind of trigger pont and I promise you one thing you don’t wanna experience that 😀

What happened?

Weird enough I did good in the running process and something just clicked in my heart. Saturday when I woke up I actually wanted to go running but didn’t because it was my rest-day.

Today I couldn’t wait going home and run. I got impatient in the sub-way. For the first time the ride was way to long. I happily dived into my running clothes and put on my magic shoes and off I went. While running I realised that I love running. STOP – hey what is going on here – did I just say I love running – what the fu.. – What has happened here.

Yes I’ve started a new love story in my life. I actually love running and it makes me happy running and listening to music just me and my magic shoes.
