MINI ME

Yes I was a fat baby haha! Some of you have asked me to post some pictures from when I was younger so here we go. I don’t have so many here in Barcelona so I just posted the ones I have in my computer. People always thought that I was was much older than what I was and I was really chubby and quite tall. My cheeks didn’t stop growing either as you can see haha, those cheeks are totally from my dad. My brother has them and his children as well – The Lindmark cheeks. The blonde woman on the picture is my aunt Yvonne, she passed away 2006 in December and it was really hard for my whole family since she was very much the “centrum” for everyone. I really miss her! <3 Anyway can you see that it’s me in the photos or does it look like a completely other person? I really wonder how our future children will look like, we have very different features haha. He doesn’t have big cheeks at all and I’m quite dark compared to him. Our children will have so many different genetics hahaha..A bit from Asia (Sri-Lanka), Scandinavia (Sweden) and south of Europe (Spain). Can you imagine when people starts asking them where they are from haha..say whuuuut! Anyway do you want to see more photos like in my teenage years and this? I think in the bottom right picture I was around 10? Tell me if you want more! Love, N

_______________________________

Ja, jag var en tjock bebis haha! Några av er har frågat om bilder från när jag var liten så här har ni några. Jag har tyvärr inte så många här i Barcelona så jag la upp de jag hade på min dator. Folk trodde alltid att jag var mycket äldre när jag var en bebis pga av mitt vackra svall (skoja bara) nej men jag var en ganska stor bebis. Mina kinder slutade liksom inte att växa haha, har ärvt de av min pappa. Min bror och hans barn har likadana så vi kallar de för Lindmarks kinderna. Den blonda kvinnan på en av bilderna är min fina faster Yvonne som tyvärr gick bort 2006, saknar hennes så otroligt mycket <3 Förresten ser ni att det är jag på bilderna eller ser det ut som en annan person haha? Jag undrar verkligen hur våra (mina och Oscars) framtida barn kommer att se ut, jag och Oscar har ju rätt så olika drag. Han har inga gosekinder och är väldigt ljus i hyn. Våra barn kommer att ha så sjukt många olika gener. Från Sverige, Sri-Lanka och Spanien. Stackarns barn när folk frågar de vart de kommer ifrån haha..say whuut! Hur som haver vill ni se fler bilder från min barndom/tonår? Love, N

Good morning babes. Another rainy day in Barcelona. What’s wrong with the weather?? It feels like I’m in a warmer version of Gothenburg haha. I have a lot of work that I have to shoot today and tomorrow so it sucks that it’s raining. Regarding the video, sorry that it’s late we are planning another project besides Youtube that’s why it’s taking a bit time this week and Oscar has been in the mountains aaand we have a guest haha. So we don’t want to be the boring couple that has to work for hours everyday. Next week I will be back like normal on my Youtube and on the blog. I have not even posted 2 posts everyday here which sucks. Anyway it’s time for breakfast now and then I’m probably of to the gym. Not so much to do a rainy day like this. Love, N

_______________________________

Godmorgon finisar! Ännu en regning dag här i Barcelona. Va är det för fel på vädret? Känns ju som att jag är i en varmare version av Göteborg haha, så grått och trist. Har mycket jobb som jag måste fota idag så det suger att det regnar idag. Det är många som frågat om veckans video, förlåt förlåt förlåt för att det är försenat. Skyller på att vi har ett annat project vid sidan om, vi har en gäst från Tyskland här och att Oscar inte varit hemma. Det är inte ofta Seppi är här så vi vill inte vara världens tråkigaste par som måste fota hela dagen, vilket vi ofta gör på lördagar. Hur som haver det är dags för frukost och sedan ska jag till gymmet. Inte så mycket att göra på en tråkig dag som denna. Love, N

TRAINING TIPS / REPOST

Training & Food,Uncategorized

Since I have a lot of new followers on the blog and many people are asking the same – how I train. So I thought I would repost this post from January for my new followers or for you if you want to read it again! It was 10 months ago so maybe you are in the need of it again. Anyway here comes my best tips: 

My best tips to start your training:

Start eating healthy. When you start eating healthy (FUN recipes not just salads) you will see results very fast and that will keep you motivated with the training as well. Search for different healthy food blogs – you will find a lot! Since I started to eat healthy my skin has become much better, and I also feel so much better on the inside.

Don’t look at the scale. I always get questions like “What’s your weight?” and I mean… does it really matter? It’s about how I feel, not about numbers on a scale. Some people becomes too obsessed with that. Screw that and do ya thaang!

Variate your training. Try yoga, running, boxing… What is the thing that fits you? What do YOU enjoy? Maybe a little bit of everything? Go to classes if it’s possible. Sometimes seeing other people sweat is a really good motivation. At least I become so competitive in the class haha. Don’t be scared to stand in the front, you will give 110% instead of 80%. And STEP OUTSIDE YOUR COMFORT ZONE!! Try new things, don’t be scared.

Try different exercises. Just write on youtube “leg exercise” or “abs work out” and 10.000 videos will pop up. I ALWAYS look at exercises at youtube and take inspiration from there, always adapting it to myself. I normally write down what I want to try and create my  training schedule from there. When I don’t have time to go to the gym I have a playlist of 20 minutes work out that I follow. Make sure to change it once in a while so you don’t get bored.

Buy new clothes! I love to buy new gym clothes in fun colours! It’s like “ok I bought them now I have to go!” haha..No but you can actually look pretty fab in the gym.

Music!! Aah I don’t function without my music. Favourite songs: G-Unit – Watch me, Kanye West – Black skinhead, Fall Out Boy – My songs know what you did in the dark (longest name of a song?!), Britney Spears – Work B*tch, Nicki Minaj – Feelings myself. If you want the whole list tell me!

Don’t compare yourself with someone else. Having a motivation picture is ok but don’t feel bad about yourself just because someone else is much fitter. You are YOU, and we are different. Some people gets abs in 2-3 weeks, some people in 6 months. Just don’t give up. While I struggle to gain weight and build muscles, someone else is struggling to lose weight. That’s something we have to understand as well. What’s important is to feel good on the inside as well, not only the outside. I love my body, but I have always been really skinny and weak..I’m striving for a stronger body. I know it will take a lot of time for me but from being the girl that couldn’t do a single push up to be able to do 20, I’m proud even if it’s a piece of cake for someone else to do 20 push ups. As I said, don’t compare yourself with someone else.

So these were my best “start your work out” tips. Do you want more work out posts? I have stopped a bit with recipes/training posts but I’m thinking about starting with it again, let me know! Love, N ♥

BIMBAS

Barcelona Guide
documents3

So yesterday we went to Bimbas which is one of my favourite places in Barcelona. I went there with Seppi (our friend from Germany) and Oscar. All of us rolled home after that haha! I have filmed a bit for next weeks vlog so you will be able to see what we ate. They have both sushi and Italian and it was the first time I tried the sushi, so yummy! Anyway very recommended if you are in Barcelona and you want to eat something good for a good price. Do you want me to tips more about shopping places and restaurants in Barcelona? I’m thinking about writing a new guide here very soon, let me know! Now it’s time to edit since Oscar is in the mountain, yes I’m learning 😉 Love, N

_______________________________

Igår var vi och åt på Bimbas som är en av mina favorit restauranger här i Barcelona. Jag var där med Seppi (vår vän från Tyskland) och Oscar. Vi rullade hem efter det haha! Har filmat lite vad vi åt för nästa veckas vlog så då får ni se vad vi beställde. De har både sushi och italienskt men det var nog första gången jag prövade deras sushi, so god! Hur som haver jag rekommenderar verkligen Bimbas om ni vill äta något gott för ett bra pris. Vill ni har mer tips när det kommer till restauranger och shopping? Har tänkt att skriva en ny guide, säg till om ni se en guide! Nu ska jag redigera en video då Oscar och Seppi är i Ordesa är på utflykt. Love, N

Faux fur: Zara // Top: Revolve // Jeans: Zara // Bag: Gucci // Shoes: Quanticlo // Sunglasses: Forever21

Hey babes! I’m sitting here with a small headache so I’m going to take a little nap to see if I gets better, normally a small nap helps. Oscar was having a cold tonight and I don’t know what sounds were coming out from his mouth/nose but I couldn’t sleep. Aaand I didn’t want to wake him up either since he had to wake up 05.00 today so I just pressed a pillow on my ear haha. Then I woke up at 06.00 when he left home so I have not been sleeping so good and I guess that’s why I’m having a headache. Anyway I have just been working from my little “office” in the living room and I went to the gym this morning. Going to the gym really early in the morning is the best thing for me, I get super motivated to work with other stuff and eat more clean the whole day if I start with a work out in the morning. Now to my outfit: I was wearing this yesterday and I really liked the combo of dark green / leopard. I saw the faux fur jacket in the store yesterday so Zara still has it if anyone wonder, and the price is 69€ is someone is wondering. Love, N

_______________________________

Hej godingar! Jag sitter här med en liten huvudvärk så jag ska nog ta en liten powernap, det brukar hjälpa när jag har ont i huvudet. Oscar var lite krasslig i natt men jag vet inte riktigt vad det var för ljud som kom ut från hans näsa/mun men jag kunde inte sova haha. Sedan så ville jag inte väcka honom heller då han skulle upp klockan 05.00 idag så jag pressade kudden mot örat för att kunna sova. Sedan vaknade jag 06.00 när han skulle iväg så jag har inte sovit så bra i natt och jag antar att det är därför jag har huvudvärk. Hur som haver jag har bara jobbat från mitt lilla “kontor” här i vardagsrummet och jag har även hunnit med gymmet. Älskar verkligen att gå till gymmet tidigt på morgonen, blir så motiverad med jobbet när jag väl kommer hem. Nu till min outfit: Hade på mig den här outfiten igår och gillade verkligen kombon mörkgrön/leopard. Såg förresten att de hade kvar fuskpälsen inne på Zara och den kostade 700 SEK om något undrar. Love, N
