Scandinavia’s Biggest Fitness Festival! The Stockholm Fitnessfestivalen

What do you do when invited to Scandinavia's biggest fitness festival? Get on a plane! I had such a nice time going to the event with Johanna and Louise. We sampled protein pancakes, protein pudding, block chain amino acid shots, and all kinds of protein candies... in fact by the time the day was over [...]

BIKINI COMPETITION TRAINING: WEEK 20 OF 20! Welcome to London! Michelin stars and depletion therapy…

The week leading into the show? Well, it's hard to recollect. Literally. My diet became a true experiment as Johanna had me drinking lots of water early in the week, eating moderate carbs, and little salt. As the week went by I ended up with no vegetables, less water, no salt, and that's it! Lots [...]

Bikini Competition Training Week 16 of 20! A beautiful holiday, and a newly fractured foot.

This week has a wonderful start as Rasmus and I went on magical hikes and runs in his hometown of Ålesund. It's just a gorgeous city with wonderful mountains and trails; we took advantage of Sukkertoppen on a rain free day! It was majestic. As the week went on, and I was in "vacation mode" [...]

Bikini Competition Training Week 15 of 20! Tunnel vision is here, and so are the rituals!

I'm so grateful that this week went well. Last week was very difficult and I had a *lot* of let downs and disappointments. I took that negative energy and used it as ammunition to refocus myself and get my priorities in gear. It worked. Johanna and Rasmus have helped me tap into my meditation and [...]
