It has been a while since I last posted. I was quite busy with work and low on energy. Now with my 2 week vacation I have a bit more time to write.
I work behind a computer all day, so when I get home I do not feel like using my laptop after that for something that requires thinking.
I have added some snaps from what I’ve been up to. Mostly work and gym.
A friend of mine started her accessories line and I really loved this blue beetle with this black leather. I just had do buy it and to be honest it is so far my favorite bracelet. This actually gave me inspiration to draw a beetle as well. So I had to take a picture of both of them.
Other news, I feel so good at the moment as I had a killer workout today and I feel quite strong. I feel my muscles and I can see my muscles.
I am slowly trying to get mentally ready for Saturday as I have a 7,7 km run coming up. So this week I am trying to keep my heaviest workouts at the beginning of this week and end this week with some lighter more cardio concentrated workout. Still some weights.
I am also trying to get enough sleep and make sure I do not get sick again. Hopefully this run will go much better than the one in May.
Last Monday the football (or soccer) season started. In September we have a tournament, some may remember my post about 2016 cup, it is the same Chef’s Cup. Last year I managed to go to practice only once or twice before the big event. This year I started training earlier.
I have been in the gym usually up to 5 times a week, sometimes more. I also have signed up to different races before, so I have to train my endurance. As cardio is so not my thing.
I already have my first bigger bruises from football.
My tattooing is also going well, if You follow me on Instagram You may have seen my latest tattoos from last Friday. I am so hoping I get to tattoo more during my 2 weeks off from work, in the beginning of August. It really seems like something I could do as a full time job.
My weekend went by quite quietly. I was at my parents house, played with my dogs and cats and didn’t do anything. Just rested and slept a lot. As I have had such insane weeks at work. Really needed this short holiday.
Did worked out on Saturday and Sunday, but it wasn’t this heavy workout I maybe normally would do.
Have quite few tattoo designs and caricature to do this week, so I am hoping to get on track with them. So it will be work and art filled week. But I am not complaining, I love tattooing and I cannot wait to get better so I can do these amazing pieces I see all over the internet.
Took some photos from this weekend as well.
Unlike last Saturday, this one went by quietly. I started of with sleeping in, was in bed until like 3 PM and then went to the gym. This time I went to another gym, closer to my house. It was bigger than my usual gym and had more room.
I loved how I got to do my workout without having to wait after someone. I usually workout at work, same building and that gym is quite small. It is good when one can be alone or max 2 other people. But usually by the time I get there it is quite busy.
I am thinking about getting a membership to a bigger gym, but at the moment I know that I may not workout as much as I do now.
At the moment all I have to do is go to is use the elevator and go up some floors. It takes just few minutes. If I go to somewhere else, I have to ad around 15 – 20 minutes to get there and the same to get back. I wish I had a car, it would make things so much easier.
Now I’m again laying in bed, as it is already Sunday, thinking about what I will do today. Biggest question is will I work out or not.
So I may have accidentally colored my hair blue. I thought I bought a conditioner which gives this silver tone to my hair but it actually made them look really blue. At least now I know that if I feel like I want some crazy hair I can use it again.
It does wash out in like 6 – 8 washes. Believe me, it looked better on photos than in real life.
It has been a while since I had a normal run outdoors. I usually for some reason run on a treadmill and every now and then participate in a running event with thousands of people.
This time me and my friend just went out and ran. We are both slightly out of shape when it comes to running. We are more strength and in my case, weights.
In August I have this 10 km run and I really want to get better by this time. Also I want to set some other goals for the fall, like I want to be able to to pull-ups and proper push-up.
