Hi there, and thanks for visiting my blog!
I’m a Swede living in West Cork, Ireland.
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. But I started with bad timing – moving abroad is quite overwhelming, and at the same time I was doing a university course (online with a Swedish university) and I didn’t really have time to start writing anything proper.
I had some interesting plans with the blog, for after my course, but then came the pandemic, and I couldn’t do much about those plans. I wrote about life, music and the garden, but eventually 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, and later I started a photography blog instead.
After living a quite inactive and not particularly healthy lifestyle, this year I finally started getting my ***** together after my husband found a personal trainer and we both started strength training with him. Over the year, with seeing encouraging results, my interest in fitness and training has increased, and it’s become a much more important part of my life. You can read more about it in this post.
I’ve been browsing some running & fitness blogs recently and find it inspiring to read about other people’s training, achievements, and thoughts about it.
Recently after I had finished my studies this autumn, I wanted to come back to this blog and use it to share my fitness journey, 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 process, and things in between. But I’d also like to share about learning music, which is another passion of mine that requires the same kind of planning, the right habits, consistency, determination and perseverance.
I think I’m going to enjoy this and I hope you will too.
