As you read in my goals for 2019, ”health first” is at the top of the list. Exercise is being prioritised in the calendar, two sessions per week with my PT Pontus. Knowing my body goes hand in hand with my exercise and knowing what I need. I get a lot of help from Natural Cycles which tells me where in my cycle I am. I have the most energy when I’m close to ovulation. When it’s time for PMS, everything feels heavier. I need more sleep and my exercise routine changes slightly.
There’s a lot of focus on the USA for Natural Cycles right now. They’ve opened a new office in NYC, I’m going to try and visit them when I’m there. That’s very exciting!
But there’s a lot of exciting things happened at home too. Natural Cycles is available for purchase in pharmacies around the country, Aptoeket AB, Kronans Apotek and Apotek Hjärtat. It’s also available online with Sweden’s largest online pharmacy – Apotea. Right now, they have a TV campaign which you might have seen, but other than that they have an offer, 25% off Natural Cycles’ Self-Test. You can use the ovulation tests as a way to prevent pregnancy, they can help you get more green days but can also be used to plan a pregnancy. You can find the campaign here!
That I feel harmonious and that my life (despite everything) feels cozy and contains everything I need in life. I have time to rest, be creative, I have time for my job, being a mom and I have energy for friends. It’s not often daily life feels so complete. I always visualise how I reach a new level on the career ladder and ahead of each jump, something always feels a bit uncertain and difficult (there’s not a textbook to follow). Right now, I’m on a plateau where a lot is settled and I’m in a routine so I can enjoy things here and then it’s time to hit the gas.
The worst is definitely reaching a new stalker level. I’ve never experienced someone actually buying a flight so they can wait for me at home. But I’m trying to look on the bright side the new security team is being tested and our routines work.
This morning’s exercise!
… What are you looking forward to?
Åre! As I’m writing this I’m on my way to the airport to fly there. Two companies from our company group are having a conference here (starting tomorrow but those who wanted got to travel up ahead of the time) – and the co-owners of NTH will be there so there’s going to be a lot of strategy talk. Sometimes I have to pinch myself, being able to have a conference in the calendar that I haven’t organised myself but that I’m attending as a guest is so awesome. I’m a tiny dot in on the agenda for the whole day. Huge!
Something else I’m looking forward to this week is going to Umeå with the kids and visit Ida. It’ll be cozy!
What feels scary?
Last Sunday I wrote that I felt NYC seemed scary but leaving my comfort zone makes me feel good. When I look back at the week I’m proud of how well everything went. I handled the interviews in English and we signed a contract with the company I wanted Löwengrip to work with! yay! I grew as a person during the trip and I can tell how that gives me inspiration to more challenges. So what feels scary (good) this week ahead? My biggest fear is that I want everyone to leave the conference in Åre and feel appreciated. There are over 20 people now and that sometimes makes you lose a connection to the new employees. Everyone has a manager and I only meet them at board meetings. That means there’s always a bit of a distance and during a conference it’s important that everyone knows that we see everyone.
… What would you rather eat?
I’ve eaten a lot of delicious oysters in NYC? If you’re visiting and go to Williamsburg in Brooklyn, I suggest a visit to Maison Premiere. Yesterday I had a cozy evening with raw food deserts from Reload. I went all the way into city centre to get them. This week, Matilda has prepared this menu. The kids will be here on Tuesday.
I’ve bought a lot of Ralph Lauren in NYC, but the spring collection was completely wonderful and a lot of clothes got to come home with me. I’ll show you everything later…I also want a new car. I’m going to try a new BMW this week, I’m looking forward to that.
…What’s different this week?
That I found a spiritual coach in NYC! The idea is to meet whenever I’m there. How fun!
… What are your goals?
Picking up the kids on Friday after work, go to Arlanda and fly to visit Ida and have cuddles with her baby. Sally is also excited!
… This week’s insight?
That despite my 350 square meters, there wouldn’t be enough space for a man at home. That’s actually a fun thought. Every room is filled up and there’s no more space for shoes, clothes or products. 🙂
Sometimes my energy levels are a miracle, I don’t know where they come from but it’s my strength. Last night I only slept four hours after yesterday’s events. I got up at 8, had breakfast and answered a few emails, then I updated you guys and after that I was at Lyko Concept Skin for a face treatment.
Walking into the shop at Birger Jarlsgatan was so cozy, it’s a a pretty busy street with lots of traffic but I always feel safe with the staff because it’s so calm. As a public person and bad luck with a few crazy people, it’s become very clear where I feel at home and with which people I can relax and be myself around. Emma did a 1,5 face treatment for me, everything from cleaning my pores to eyebrow. Emma is so fantastic and it’s wonderful to have found the one.
I have my beauty team that I work with regularly. Other than Emelie who I see every day, I also have Emelie the hairdresser, Justina who does my nails every other week. Gaby does my spraytan every week and one a month I get my eyelashes fixed by Alicia. Everything happens at home. It sounds extreme but the majority of my work is being photographed, filmed or standing on stage. All morning are always content. It’s the priority and after that I deal with all the company meetings.
Anyway, I got caught up talking about work, I was going to tell you about my Saturday!
After the treatment I did a one hour exercise session with Pontus at Sturebradet. Deadlifts were on today’s schedule. I warned Pontus that I’m lacking in sleep and that becomes clear with weightlifting. But I still managed the weights well.
Afterwards, I took the car and bought lunch and then went home for some quiet time and meditation. Then I got myself ready for dinner. I got back home quite early because I was looking forward to a Saturday evening by myself.
The fire is lit, Sex and the City is on and raw food deserts in front of me. I was a bit nervous about the man the police arrested yesterday and thought I was going to be distracted by it. But because he flew in from France to come here (the downside to media expansion in several countries) and put up a lot of resistance when the police caught him, they’ve chose to detain him.
Oh my god, I can hear how I sound and how I’m getting used to it. It’s crazy how adaptable you are.
This post turned into something else entirely. My ideas was to tell you about how fantastic a childfree Saturday can be (even though I miss them). It has been fantastic. I’m really grateful to have both parts of my daily life, days with kids and my own days. I can’t think of a better combination. It’s like having two lives in one.
