pump it up

started the day with 8.30am bodypump.
it is fun to feel the changes going on in my body. I feel how I get stronger and some days are just awesome. today I felt awesome at some things on the bodypump session. like legs, butt (squats), and back. things that still sucks are triceps, butt as in lunges and shoulders. haha just hate a few of them routines.

after the gym I went to buy some food for my cat. went home, packed, made lunch. down to the bowl for some practice, coached the kids. back home to get all my stuff, dropped Bella off at Emmas house, shes gonna take care of my tiger this weekend. (and yes I have the best friends everrrr.)

trainride to Copenhagen.

Tomorrow morning flying to stockholm for a weekend with team sweden. :)

gonna watch some tv before going to bed. another early wakeup call tomorrow.

today was a recovery day. I stayed in bed until noon, watched some movies and when I swapped bed to couch I was watching tv and eating breakfast. I finally showered and got ready to go to the gym around 3.30pm.

5pm grit strength 30mins
I finally pushed myself a little harder today. its hard to reach that level when you push your body to not even function for a short while. the sweat was dripping. it was awesome.
did some stretching routines afterwards.

met up the guys in the bowl at 6.30pm. on schedule: running. first day after my problems with my leg and so far so good. hopefully tomorrow feels just the same. about 2,5-3km today. pushing it a little bit more tomorrow. :)

swedish elite national championships

there is no better feeling than to strike when you have to to make it through or to win something. doesnt matter how small or big. you always out pressure on yourself and to stand tall and confident and succeed. wow. long time since I had that feeling and was able to do it. and this weekend I did it twice.
I doubled in the 10th to be 16th and be the last one to make the cut. I struck in the 10th to sneak into top 8th by only a few pins. ended up 7th overall.
I am very happy with my performance overall this weekend. also a very long time since I was able to say that last time. making progress, people!

big congrats to my team mate Jenny Wegner for winning the gold this weekend. so happy and so proud of you sweetie! you were awesome.
also to my other team mate Mattias Wetterberg for winning the silver!

day 2

squad 2
terrible day on the lanes. I couldnt find a place to get comfortable and didnt get the chance to relax and just bowl. I felt that I had to chase the whole time. awful feeling but I managed to do one good thing today. double to make it through to tomorrow. last one in the cut.

tomorrow is a new day. paris 47ft. everything can happen. im going for all or nothing. I have nothing to loose. nothing.


swedish nationals

day 1 squad 1
pattern: tokyo 43ft
1282 4th place
im very happy with how I bowled pretty much all 6 games. I struggled a little in game 4 and 5 but managed to end up good in game 4 for 190 but 5 was no good. 160something. had a few opens im disappointed with but that's history now.
ended the block very good with 244 and I feel ready for todays challenge.

getting ready to go eat breakfast with frida, bowling again at 2pm on Atlanta 38ft. top 16 makes it through to tonight at 8pm bowling on Paris 47ft. top 8 makes it to tomorrow, bowles on sydney 33ft.

wish me luck!!

ping pong

so the only plan I had today got changed haha. me, martin and john were gonna play ping pong but the 50+ tournament held in our bowling centre needed a pacer so I got to practice 6 games today. which I didnt mind at all, I was hoping to be able to bowl so this was perfect. only got to play ping pong for 20mins though but omg it was fuuuun. havent played it in such a long time.

bowling today went well. 1383/6 and my spare shooting is getting so much better.

after bowling I went out for dinner with my mom, dad and some friends to the family. restaurant by the beach, the view was amazing and so was the food.

got for the second time this week wear something different than workout clothes and bowling clothes. so when I haf the chance I put on a dress and made my hair a bit curly. mmmm lovely.

so tomorrow im leaving for Jönköping and the swedish nationals. very excited about it! fingers crossed. bowling first time at 5pm tomorrow :)


glad I went bowling today. good to get some games in for this weekend. we bowled on the deer-pattern. long oil patteen that is a bit tricky. this is one of the pattern that can be picked during the play offs in may so I felt I wanted to bowl on it in a different bowling centre. started out good but game 4&5 ended up terrible, my good look was gone. I moved left and I had a bad ball reaction no matter what ball I was throwing so in game 6 I move back out and played the gutter and shot 248 the last game. a little hard to figure that move out, 20boards to the right. oh well. I bowled good and controlled. too bad I had those two games. ended up like 40over or something.

just got back home, should I plan anything for my friday or just let it happen? haha


haha I need to stop making plans for my days cause they never end up the way I expect them too

its not a bad thing for me, im spontaneous so I dont mind. today I started with snoozing two hours and I never went to the gym. my body was sore so I thought a day without lifting weighta wouldnt hurt.
I ate breakfast infront of the tv, took a long shower, got ready to head down to the bowl for lunch and practice. but again changed plans. I was gonna pace for our 50+ tournament but one guy never showed up so I had to find somewhere else to practice/bowl. so..

next stop: hässleholm for the skåne-tour

wish me luck :)


even though I took a powernap after my body balance session and my first bowling practice this morning I still feel supertired.
relaxing day. wednesdays are my favorite.

bowling today was good.
this morning I practiced on short oil and I got to use my urethane a bit. love my natural ♡
and evening practice I got use my old defiant soul, a favorite that I put away like 6months ago cause I couldnt get it to work but no, hell yeaaaa. missed it!

also went to my physical therapist today and asked about my leg. hello there benhinneinflammation/periostitis/shin splints. not so awesome. hope its gonna leave me alone soon. 31 days left.

thursday tomorrow.
8.30am bodypump

that feeling

you know that feeling when everything falls back into place. when you finally figure our whats been bothering you and your game. that feeling is unbelieveable and I got to experience it today.
I was discussing with my best friend how weird it was that over a night everything could change like that and I have been working so hard so its heartbreaking how I can loose it just in a second when she said: well maybe you have been working so hard that you forgot to enjoy the game.

no more words needed.

I went down on the lanes.
took a deep breath.
let my body fall into my startposition without pushing it or overdoing it.
and just bowled.
amazing feeling.
I enjoyed it for the first time in a long while.
hate myself for letting that happen.

after bowling I went to the gym for grit strength and straight from there to meet up with the guys I bowl with for a tabata session with them. holy moly. body was shaking when I was done. prrrretty good. im sure im gonna be sore tomorrow. good thing is I have Body balance on schedule tomorrow and hopefully a run if my leg accepts it.

8.30am bodybalance
10am bowling
6pm bowling
and some work

bring on wednesday!

is bowling a sport?

for those of you who doubt it, take a look at this:


early start

I think I have to start this "clean-eating" thing a little earlier than planned. like tomorrow. cause today I kinda took advantage of it. pizza for late breakfast/lunch, fika blueberry pie and chocolate ball before 3pm. hahaha. love to eat. cant help it. luckily I keep moving my ass so its not that easy to tell.

5pm bodypump
long time since last time but damn it was nice to be back. my favorite leader too, Juliana. for me its important to have a good leader in class, someone that makes you do a little more. she can make me give a little extra.
so today I put on some bigger weights on a few parts - legs, back and biceps. also felt I could do more and better on the rest compared to earlier. happy times!

6pm house-league (6.09pm)
mom picked me up right away after the gym so I could go bowl league. still having some probs after the weekend. I dont really know what happened but something changed like over night. having such an amazing feeling while bowling to not even know what foot to start with.
its not THAT bad but still. I have to work more on my push-away and my start position so I dont fall too far back from the start, timing! lets work on this tomorrow.

now bed
tomorrow coaching, practicing, kicking ass at the gym, staffmeeting.
and day one of clean eating as in no candy, no soda and no fried food.

lets go :)

kiddo ♡

swim-lesson for kiddo
kiddo went back home
cleaned the whole apartment
moved around stuff
dishes done

all this before 4pm
I dont know where I got my energy from but damn I did good.
I have showered 3times today, maybe thats one of the reasons.

so how am I gonna spend my evening?
movies & pizza. gonna eat all the unhealthy stuff until the 17th this month.
having one month of "clean eating" before im running my half marathon. so pizza and candy. gonna eat so I have something to loose later ;)
