Hi there, and thanks for visiting my blog!

I’m a Swede living in West Cork, Ireland. I moved here with my husband and cat in 2019, to enjoy the Irish countryside, short winters with usually no snow, music in pubs, and a better lifestyle.

I started this blog in February 2019. To begin with, it was meant to share my experiences of moving abroad, and to set up a new home and garden in Ireland.

I had some interesting plans with the blog, but then came the pandemic, and I couldn’t do much about those plans. I wrote about life, music and the garden, but I eventually lost interest and fell out of love with the blog. It’s been all over the place since then, until I closed it in the summer of 2022.

After living a quite inactive and not particularly healthy lifestyle, in 2022 I finally started getting my ***** together and started strength training with a personal trainer.

During the summer I started seeing results. This triggered an increased interest in fitness and training, and I wanted to do more. In September that year I decided to try running, and fell in love with it.

I started browsing some running & fitness blogs, and found it inspiring to read about other people’s training, achievements, and experiences. I also found a very supportive community of running bloggers.

I decided to re-open this blog to document my fitness journey and progress with becoming a runner.

Edit: Now, end of May 2023, an injury has totally stopped my running ambitions – I could potentially run again but I’m not sure I want to – as soon as I’m back on my feet, my 100% fitness focus will be strength training, with some additions of indoor cycling and rowing for cardio.

I use this blog as an accountability tool of sorts but not only. It’s meant to be an ordinary personal blog with a twist toward fitness and training, about my own strategies and progress, and things in between. But I’d also like to talk about learning music, which is another passion of mine that requires the same kind of planning, the right habits, consistency, determination and perseverance – aka Jävlaranamma.

I think I’m going to enjoy this and I hope you will too.
