Date Night Vlog – A night in the woods

And then she started vlogging… But hey, you asked for it! At least some of you did.

 

Date Night Vlog - A night in the woods

For a start, I take you with me on a date night with Mr. Loca, accompanying him on a hunt (don’t worry, no blood was spilled) and enjoying lots of shooting stars.

 

 

Please tell me if you want to see more stuff like that. But be warned, my life usually is not that exciting!

My labor and delivery story

No breaking news: I had a baby in early March. And you are probably tired of me banging on about it.

But many of you asked for more background information, so I figured I would film a little video, taking you with me on the journey to the hospital and into the delivery room.

 

My labor and delivery story

 

Well, not really into, just narratively into, because

a) I don’t think anyone would want to see the bloody details and

b) I had many other things on my mind that did not include picking up a camera.

Lesley Fightmasters 30 Days of Yoga Challenge – The first week

The hardest thing about getting back in shape after having a baby is actually getting started. After weeks (or in my case months) of doing barely anything, even a short workout feels strange.

As days go by, you tell yourself you´ll start tomorrow. There is backpain from wrong posture, tightness in neck and shoulders from carrying the baby and a growing discomfort in your own body that makes you realize you should really, really get started.

Tomorrow.

But somehow tomorrow never comes.

When Inma from Sunshine and Glow, a fellow blogger and long time yoga lover shared her favorite Yoga videos to do at home, I knew that it was now or never.

 

Day one
Day one

 

I would do Lesley Fightmasters 30 Days of Yoga Beginners Challenge to get back into the swing of things. And to keep me on track, Inma agreed to be my accountability partner and do the challenge along with me.

So starting today (not tomorrow!) we will give you a weekly recap of our thoughts and feelings, through the eyes of an absolute beginner (me) and an experienced yoga lover (Inma).

Changes – Not my typical blogpost

As the title gives away, I am here to talk about changes.

Necessary changes, that I briefly mentioned here already and that are based on the changes my life has gone through.

How many times can I say changes in the first paragraph?

The Baltic Sea in winter

 

Many of you will know already, I had my second child this month. And if you have children yourself (or know someone who has and suddenly disappeared completely), you will know how little time is suddenly left in your day for all the things you used to do before.

Like, sleep.

Body image after giving birth

Now that you are reading this, Peanut will most likely have arrived and I will be completely caught up in the wants and needs of this tiny human being.

And while the first weeks (months?) after welcoming a new member of the family are usually spend in a fog caused by hormones, sleep deprivation and utter exhaustion, I know that I will someday emerge, look into a mirror and try my very best not to hate what I see.

 

Both are nursing bras... but they do have quite a different vibe to them, don't you think?
Both are nursing bras… but they do have quite a different vibe to them, don’t you think?

 

This post, of course, needs a disclaimer. I am fully aware of the wonder that growing a human being is, of the amazing things my body has done and that being healthy both myself and my child is the only thing that really matters.

But even if I tell myself that 100 times, and yes, I know it is superficial: I wished I´d look different than I do now anyway.
