The reporter.

Throwback Thursday.

You may read this post at call it a brag. It is, but I don’t care cuz´I wanna reach out and haters gonna hate anyway and all that. Same old, same old.

I wanna begin by saying that I wasn’t the first tryna make a crossfitpodcast run in Sweden, Robert Stasinski was. All cred to that man. Thank you.

I started my crossfit journalism way back, and I mean waaaay back. The year was 2013.
And I started out the classic way, by writing interviews. Here’s some crossfit athletes I’ve interviewd:
Philip Rylander, Mikaela Norman, Marcus Herou, Angelica Bengtsson, Bjork Odinsdottir, Alexander Elebro, Julie Foucher, Helena Falk, Patricia Strenius, Viktor Långsved, Emelie Smiding (personal favorite), Karl Dyall, Andreas Bergkvist, Kristin Holte, Carmen Bosmans, Hjördis Osk Odinsdottir, Linnea Fransson, Lacee Kovacs, Andrea Berggren, Christer Idland, Louise Tjäder, Lisa Bengtsson, Andrea Ager, Robert Manlove, Rikard Lanner, Chloie Jönsson, Calvin Kayser-Allen, Samantha Briggs, Jenny La Baw, Graham Holmberg, Neal Maddox, Nikolaj Rönnow, Jonas Colting and Carl Paoli.

Yes. You will find every single interview under the interview category.

And then I started my career as a flying reporter and my first mission was to cover the competition Battle of London (now called London Throwdown).
I flew over, met all the athletes like Andrea Ager, David Shorunke and the “MeatMonster” David Santa Cruz Borgstrand just to mention a few. I was i the media crew and had A BLAST!
That was (kinda) my first podcasting. 2014 in London.

And that’s just the beginning. I found a way to save and restore my old audio files and now you can listen to them on iTunes or acast. Wow!! You can call me hackerwoman from now on.
The list is long. I’ve made 32 episode so far. With awesome athletes and with my bestie Livvie.

Thank you for my birthday present. The microphone.

As you may notice, sound gets better along the way, hehe. I’ve got some professional help from a real media guy. Forever gratueful. The best crew in the world!

The newold episodes are out and about:
Joanna Swica, Le Man Throwdown, Akira Corassani, Mia Åkerlund, Adrian Skepi, Madeleine Vall, Christmas Abbot, Doris, Fredrik Paulun, Hatlex challenge, Linn Mattsson, Lårklubben (Cornelia & Lisa), Ivan & Martin, Roland & Cristian, Rena & Sascha, Best On The West, Jonas Olsson, Konstantin Avrarmidis Granlund, Roslagen Open, Joakim SJöstedt, Katti Housmandfar and David Santa Cruz Borgstrand.
Whatta joy!

Go ahead and listen:
Here: ITUNES

and

Here: ACAST

(That’s where you’ll find me and Livias epic episodes aswell.) Tune in and listen. In just a few days a new and VERY IMPORTANT episode will be released. You do not wanna miss that, hell no!

I’m on a mission. Gimme more!!!

Sledpull & press

It’s here!

Pay-daaaay! Food in the fridge and a lots of Karma to be bought! (The perfume, I know I can’t buy myself into Karma, duh!)
The scent from heaven sent from Lush. Best scent ever!
Need some Zlatan stuff too I think.

Started today with heavy presses. I thought I’d nail 40kg strict but didn’t. I made 37,5. How come that 37,5 comes up pretty easy (oh well), and 40 is like ERROR, can’t even get halfway through. Haha. It’s wierd.

After that I made some on the minute for 15 minutes sprints with the sled. Sledpush. OMG. I had forgotten about how nasty they are. Lactic acid in my legs were there to stay for 15 minutes. I wanted to give up 5 minutes in the workout. Did not give up. You just don’t give in. 45 kg back and forth. Burner!!!
Booty building.

Yesterday Robin said: “That was the nicest snatches you’ve ever made. Way to go. Keep on doing that.”
I’m on the right track here! He is picky so when he says it’s good, it really is.

So I found out something yesterday (Thanks to Joanna Swica). This my friends is EPIC stuff. Old material is to be found. Old, juicy and fun!!
To be revealed tomorrow!!

Perfect

What if…

I finally locked up the secret to the clean?
No, I had not. Bollocks!

Anyways. I’m up, it was a nice morning for some training to get done. It wasn’t.
Restless sleep and then the cramps woke me up at 4:44 (thank you very much.) Aaaah you can’t even imagine the pain. It’s…it’s like…why don’t you just stab me with a knife and turn it sideways several times?
It hurts so much I wanna kick out the teeth of someone.
Gr8.
No point trying to sleep again, I went to the box and it was heavy. Everything was heavy. Except one clean maybe. Or was it the jerk?
Did someone steal my brain? It’s like I’ve forgotten about everything Robin told me. Hellooo scapula? No answer.
And my lungs? 1km run+100 double unders+50 wall balls. Time cap:10 min.
I almost died running in the rain, messed up the DU’s and got myself 20 wallballs in the end. And I think 50% of the wall balls  were no rep. Hands down.

Oh well.

Some Qigong done now (you heard me). I need to shift focus right about now. Oh happy day! Oh happy daaaay

I’m so ready for this Monday. Come get me, I’m right here.

Friday’s for lifting

Cinnamonbuns, deadlifts and inspiration.

That’s what life’s about in a way.
I’m so glad my inspiration to paint is back. It’s a serie of canvases, a triology is happening in my art studio (Yeah, I really want one, but for now, my room is my studio. Ok.)
La Femme, a true story in three sets of seven paintings. You’ll understand when you see them.

Deadlifts. I have a goal. 100kg, a nice lift.
Mhm. Working on that thing. Need to friendzone my CNS first. First thing first as always.

The goddamn rower killed me. 2000m for time, ugh! I have to split the distance in my head.
125m: Wooaaa there’s SO MUCH MORE TO ROW.
500m: Mmm, 1500 left 1/4 you got this.
750m: I have to correct the straps, no I don’t, yes I do, no YOU DON’T.
1000m: 50%!!!
1100m: FML.
1500m: I can’t slow down but I’m hearing my own heavy breathing dammit.
1750m: I have to correct the straps, no I don’t, yes I do, no YOU DON’T.
1876m: Juuuuuust a few strokes left, hang IN THERE.
2000m: I can’t, I can’t even! VOOOOILAAA!!!

Have a McFly day peeps. Don’t forget to match your socks with the weights.

I will spend the rest of my day watching National Geographics and figure out what Lush product I like the most.

My party

Ok.

So I wanna be a writer, an artist, a singer and a crossfit athlete in my life. There ya go. There we got it. Finally found it!
I wish the days had more hours.
No. I wish we had a system working in our favor, a 6-hour work day (including lunch of course.)
But for realsies, I strongly believe in that.
We still earn our money and we get more time to hang out with our loved ones and to nourish our passions and interests or whatever we like to do. Siestas and reading. Whatevs floats your boat.
I’ll vote for the party making that come true.
Or I’ll make my own party, and I would call it La grande cojones.
Would you vote for me?

Yepp. Liftig today felt goooood! Front squat with straight arms. Power clean with (hopefully) no bending arms anywhere. Please please body, can you just get it already?!
And then. Disaster. 80 wall balls with a lousy time. 5:15 dammit. Straight after: 50 burpee box jumps. Hello I’m smoked.
Abs abs abs.
Still fun though! Making progress!

Have a great day.

Fight the power.

As we enter

It’s raining.

Perfect wheather for a roadtrip! I wanna see the artsy artsy stuff Skåne has to offer. So I’m taking KAY for a ride right about now.

Woke up early and well-rested after a night of safe and sound sleeping. Thank you dreams.
Headed down to the box for some lifting and a little burner that went like this:
10 min AMRAP:
15 clusters
15 boxjumpovers
increasing weights 15-20-25-30-35kg and so on…
Yeah, paincave totally.

Btw. What is most likely to you? My hair is growing superfast. And the quality of my hair and skin is (I don’t mean to brag now but…) pretty damn great.
At the very same time I started to do these things as a routine:

1. Start my day with a glass of water mixed with:
½ tbsp honey
½ tbsp tumeric
½ tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
½ tbsp back pepper

2. Eat D-vitamins and some kinda kollagen-complex with vitamin C.

3. Take Hers. That’s pills filled with awesome stuff like royal jelly.

4. Eat more and variated.

5. Also, I love skincare. (But I dislike haircare. I would like a private hairwasher or something. It’s so boring and takes so much time!)

So stupid to start with everything at the same time. Now I have no clue what makes my hair and skin glowing. Bummer. Hehe.

Off I go. Hellooooo Österleeeeeen!!

(Frida had great hair too)

Happy bunny

Easter bun is so much fun.

Yepp. Yeah yeah yeah.

It’s been a while folks! I’m busy busy doing a creative project I’m dying to tell you about but I can’t just yet.
It is as important as well as it is fun working with. Wait and see.

Training is going great and I’m still making progress. Yaay!
This no-weighting-game-no-scale-no-food-measurement is stable but scary. One day at the time seems to be the shit to handle it all.
Proud.

Other facts:
1. I’m tryna understand my new awesome computer and I have to say that: just do it is a winning concept. It will not explode.
2. Also, I installed word now. (After 4 hours of “extract here” stuff.)
3. Will throw the compute out any second though because the adobe sound editing program is ERROR laughing in my face as we speak.
4. I took a 1 hour long powernap today.
5. Woke up with the worst ovary pain ever heard of. Kinda.
6. Will prolly spend the rest of this weekend reading and writing.
7. And then I guess I have to bungy jump somewhere to get that adrenaline rush going again.
8. I love to weightlift.
9. I will eat breakfast for dinner. Nothing wrong with that.
10. Revengeeee b*tcheeeees

Bye!

On track

Hm.

I think I’m improving my clean a bit. Let’s wait and see what coach says now shall we.
Ok hands down. One of the worst thing about filming yourself while lifting must be the frowns i make. Come oooon people! (me).
Well that and -WOOOW look how pale I am. I’m transparent.
I need to get a tan. I wanna go spraytan. Do I know anyone doing that stuff? Inbox me asap. I’m fading away over here.

I also found out I ain’t an Odd Molly kinda woman. Wtf?! Sometimes you’re just lost man. Anyway, it’s on tradera now. I can’t even look at it. What was I thinking?

And also, hands up those who think I should make a recipe book. Jen4jen goes writer, huh?
It would contain shitloads of breakfasts, more or less healthy cookies and easy made food to…eat.
What do you say?

Who doesn’t love pancakes? It sure ain’t no friend of mine.

Learning stuff

Monday is finally here.

Good training with squats and clean and running. I will say it again. Robin is such a pro! Greatness ahead!

I think three week has gone now since I made my decision. Life quality and riot no diet. I notice a difference of course. My thighs are thicker. I think it’s legit since I squat more aswell. Not so much signs of abs left, but the core is strong and I do have a better posture.
I also notice a difference in my limbs, I move smoother. I feel more energized and all of a sudden I wanna dress more female, like a woman. Soft colours, skirts, dresses.
And I wanna go to yoga! I’m thinking about bikram yoga, 360 bikramyoga-I’m in. All the benefits, all the sweat, the meditation and the feeling afterwards. Been longing for this. Imma go.

The struggle is real and it ain’t easy dammit. But it is going to be worth it, that I know.

Thoughts and things I’ve learned the passed week:

  1. Getting thicker thighs isn’t the end of the world
    2. To push with my legs when lifting. (Thank you thicker thighs).
    3. Missing someone is hard.
    4. That I have a happy personality with a melancholy soul.
    5. Trolls in social media are stupid.
    6. That life is to short to not eat chocolate.
    7. Not being pulled over by the police TWICE the same day is kinda the greatest feeling.
    8. That I wanna find a great coffee place to read books in.
    9. That I wanna sing jazz with my epic band asap.

Hollaaa at me! Great morningsession
5 ROUNDS:
25 goblet squats
200m run
10 burpees
Try it.
