The Desire For Attention

hdbeocngim6ow3igjppt7_9k0ygj4iij3qjjslz1oz4

We are more than our bodies, but that doesn’t mean we have to be a shamed of them or our sexuality.

As women we are accused of seeking attention more than men are, whether for speaking out politically, for dressing a certain way, or for even posting a selfie. Our culture has a double standard that runs so deep, many women have actually built up an automatic defense—attempting to be a step ahead of potential critics by making sure we have “real” reasons for anything we say or do.

Often it’s men propelling these acts of sexism, but women discount one another too: Think about how many times you’ve heard a woman say about another woman, “Oh, she’s just doing that for attention.” Our society tells women we can’t be, say, sexy and confident and opinionated about politics. This would allow us too much power. Instead our society asks us to declare and defend our motivations, which makes us second-guess them, all while men do what they please without question.

I see it all the time, particularly when my girlfriends are getting ready to go out. They encounter this moment when they think, I don’t want to look like I tried too hard. They don’t want to be seen as desperate or vain. But my guy friends don’t think twice about whether this shirt or that cologne will make them seem attention seeking. The truth is that both groups want to be noticed. Yet we view a man’s desire for attention as a natural instinct; with a woman, we label her a narcissist.

Look at pop culture: Mick Jagger is 73, and he still sometimes wears his shirt open and gyrates onstage. We understand that this is a part of his performance and artistic brand. Meanwhile, when Madonna, who is 58 and a revolutionary in that same kind of artistic sexuality, wears a sheer dress to the Met Gala, critics call her “a hot mess” who’s “desperate.” But isn’t she just making one of her signature political statements about female sexuality (and, incidentally, about our ageist, sexist culture too)? In any case, they are both performers who undoubtedly like attention. So why does Madonna get flak for it while Jagger is celebrated?

It’s absurd to think that desire for attention doesn’t drive both women and men. Why are women scrutinized for it more, then? And if a woman dresses up because she does want attention, male or otherwise, does that make her guilty of something? Or less “serious”? Our society doesn’t question men’s motivations for taking their shirt off, or shaving, or talking about politics—nor should it. Wanting attention is genderless. It’s human. 😉

My 6 Steps To Getting Bikini-Ready In A Week

IS3A5301-Edit

Summertime means lots of days in bikinis and swimsuits by the pool or beach. I always try to stay bikini ready all summer, but when going on vacation knowing I will be without my regular fitness rutine and in a bikini all day, it’s time to really get it together. When I want to look my best in a swimsuit I have a few tricks I follow that totally help. These 5 things are what I do a week before a beach vacation to feel and look my best.

  1. NEVER Skip Breakfast. It will only slow your metabolism.

Last summer I was making fresh pressed juice every morning with fruits and vegetables and protein powder. This summer I haven’t really been doing that. Now I drink a healthy drink called Estrogenomics from Poliquin and I ad some L-Glutamine. It is a blend of pea protein concentrate, pea protein isolate, glycine, taurine, rice protein concentrate, and L-glutamine, dried cane syrup, fiber complex, oat fiber, cocoa powder, sunflower oil, bioactive immunoglobulin, plant enzyme and broccoli seed extract, I didn’t even mention all the ingredient’s because I don’t know what half of them do.. haha 😉 But I know it’s good for you – and my body feels good when I drink it. I always ad extra L-glutamine to my shake – you can order it HERE 😉 and HERE – This drink will give you a boost of vital minerals and vitamins you need for an overall good health and strong gut, your immunity will become stronger and you won’t get sick very often. L-glutamine promotes good recovery after a gym session and lots of other stuff.

convenient-to-bring-whey

After my shake I will eat a banan and then go for my fasted cardio rutine, which means my little morning run without a real breakfast.

I will burn pure fat IF I keep my pace at a jogging level, if you start sprinting you will start burning muscles because you didn’t eat a solid breakfast, so I wouldn’t recommend that. After my 20-25 min run it is time for a real breakfast – I eat 3- 4 eggs and cook it in different ways with vegs, rice or what ever I have in my fridge – Before a vacation I will probably skib the rice to become more lean.

2. I will always recommend loosing weight by changing your lifestyle eating healthy and exercising. But if you need a quick boost Iduva is a dietary supplement that can help you loose weight fast, and give you a good head start. Maybe you have been eating too many ice creams this summer and want to slim down quickly before your vacca. Iduva has weight-loss shakes and bars. Right now you can buy it with 20 % off the normal price, this discount will be available until Monday 15/8 go get your supplements now. click HERE and you will go straight to Iduva’s discount. Delivery is only in Denmark, so if you live abroad you won’t be able to buy it. Sorry ;(

3. Don’t eat 3 hours before you go to bed. I always want to eat a snack before bedtime, if I have wild cravings I will eat 1 peace of raw chocolate and drink another breakfast shake. On normal occasions I will usually eat something and not be a fanatic 😀

4. Get those workouts done, visit the gym and workout. Train like it is your last summer on earth. I seriously rip myself apart in the gym – no joke, people will be looking at me like i’m nuts, sweat dripping everywhere, tomato red face, terminator mood and ready to pass out after each set.. Go all GI Jane style, cos I know you want that bikini body! 😉

5. Eat as clean as possible, especially when it comes to snacks. I will swap my beloved crisps for nuts or fruits instead! Super boring yes, but it is only 1 week before your vacca.

6. Kick up your water intake big time and drink lots of green teas. It really is the ekstra step that makes my tummy look flatter.

My Top 10 Guilty Pleasure’s ;) What are yours?

As I secretly indulged in some of my favorite things this morning, I started thinking about guilty pleasures. The urban dictionary says guilty pleasures are those things we shouldn’t like, but we like anyway. I think this is a contradiction in terms. They are things we do but don’t talk about to anyone. If we really like doing something, we shouldn’t feel guilty about it, right?

CNN did a story on this last year entitled We men don’t have ‘guilty’ pleasures. According to that article, for men, “obsessions are points of pride, not shame.” I don’t think women should hang their heads in shame either. What are yours? I wonder if any of yours are the same as mine.

  1. Using a lot of time on Instagram filtering my pictures lol while eating raw chocolate with mint or crisps
  2. Listening to Celine Dion, Tina Turner or Whitney Houston’s old love songs (kinda embarrassing Go ahead, laugh it up)
  3. Watching any of the Alien Movies!! Specially Number 2 or 4  – Sigourney Weaver is the bomb and spending a random Tuesday afternoon watching those movies is heaven on earth to me.gallery-movies-alien-saga-gallery-16
  4. Listening to a Australien accent Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about a guilty pleasure – I could listen to a guy with an Australien accent talk all day long. I turn to complete mush. This is one guilty pleasure I don’t get to experience often, but when I do, I can’t get enough.
  5. Late night eating, I know it’s unhealthy and bad. But I can snack all night long, sometimes I eat loads of food just before bed time and feel like crap in the morning hahaha..
  6. Fuzzy socks that go all the way up to your knees in lots of colours, so cute and cosy I love wearing them and I know it’s ugly.Knee-socks-warm-striped-Fuzzy-Sock-long-cozy-feet-warm-winter-home-sleep-thigh-high-stockings
  7.  Reading gossip magazines. The magazines that are so bad, they are good. It is one of the easiest guilty pleasures out there. Just grab one at the supermarket for a few hours of indulgence. I don’t care that most of that celebrity stuff isn’t true; I just want to look at all the pictures and dream that I owned as many pairs of shoes as Suri Cruise.
  8. Sleeping late without being interrupted. Oh.. wow.. what a guilty pleasure. I haven’t been able to do this for months; lately there just isn’t room in my schedule. Do you remember when we were teenagers and we would go to sleep Friday night and wake up late in the afternoon on Saturday? Back then, I didn’t realize how indulgent that was. What I would do for a solid twelve hours of sleep right now. 🙂 Im crashing early tonight.
  9. Dancing around alone in my apartment it is strange but a guilty pleasure, I love it and it always makes me happy.dancing_with_myself_by_mykegreywolf-d8p49ta
  10. Spending hours on grooming myself, differen’t body oils and face creams, hair moisturizer, manicure’s, body scrub, perfumes I could use all day.  health-beauty-products

Found A New Born Bambi In The Grass

I am spending another weekend at our summerhouse in Denmark. Lovely area located at Møn. I was out walking my dog Coco Chanel and I found this new born deer hiden in the grass. I am a animal lover and it was wonderful to see such a tiny beautiful bambi. The mother was out and about all day, but came back for her new born before dark. I was getting worried, I went to check on the baby several times during the day. You can’t touch a new born deer or the mother might disown her, because of the different smell. So I had to enjoy watching. What a cute little princess or prince. High on nature and high on life. Everything is just more wonderful when it is a hot summer. image image image image

Hello Ladies,

A simple outfit like this one can look super cool. I LOVE COLOURS and I try to wear colorful outfits as much as possible. My skirt is from Diesel and my top is from Las Vegas, the brand is called YMF. My shades are from Ray Ban.

The point is sometimes less is more 😉 you actually don’t need much to look cool when the sun is shinning. Create your own unique style. I like to combine a sweet top with a raw skirt like this one, so you get a feminine, but cool look.

Today I have been tanning with my ladies and enjoying a very chill-laxed Monday, after a wild weekend.

More outfits coming up 😉 – thanks for checking in.

Muaaah

I am wearing my Superdry Leather Jacket, my ripped Bershka jeans, my Adidas Ritaora top (in love with it) and my Burberry bag. My shades are from Louis Vuitton.

Amazing summer day in Copenhagen, summer is awesome.

Do You Want To Get Serious About Fitness? You don’t need a gym. This article is addressed to the people who struggle, who don’t go as much as they think they should, who aren’t as fit as they’d like.

image

Some people go to the gym all the time. Good for them. This article is addressed to the people who struggle, who don’t go as much as they think they should, who aren’t as fit as they’d like.

Going to the gym is hard. You have to pack a gym bag. You have to go there. You have to change when you get there. You have to change and get home. All that and you’re paying every month for a membership.

The thing is, you don’t need a gym to get in good shape.

At-home fitness for the winners

There’s a reason you hear so much about interval training.

Short, intense periods of exercise are highly effective in boosting health, possibly more effective than long sessions of exercise. All you really need to get in shape is a short, well-designed workout routine.

The most famous is the 7-minute workout routine  All you do is 30 seconds of each of these exercises, with 10-second breaks: Jumping jacks; wall sits; push-ups; crunches; step-up (on chair); squats; triceps dips (on chair); planks; high knees / running in place; lunges; push-ups and rotations; side planks. If you aren’t sure how the different exercises are carried out, don’t worry they are very simple movements. Go on youtube and write the exercise you are in doubt about – a 100 video’s will appear and show you the correct movement.

Not feeling that? The four-minute Tabata workout and a 12-minute workout, that alternates high-effort bursts with easy jogs have also been shown to be extremely effective. There are others popping up every day. Creative types might even invent their own.

exercise squats grocery storeYou can do it anywhere.

What else can you do?

Simply running for five-to-ten minutes every day has been shown to give a major boost to your health. If running isn’t your style, five minutes of jumping rope, vigorously riding a bike, or really any activity that causes you to break a sweat will make a difference.

Me? I live near the beach. Why on earth would I run in a gym basement on a treadmill when I can run on the beach? Because I am one of the gym fanatic’s we hate. haha..;) I use the treadmill before I work out with weights in the gym, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it, there are endless alternatives, you don’t have to run inside on a boring treadmill.

Other ways I’ll look to get exercise include self-guided stretching, I am a HUGE fan of Yoga – I always end my workouts with some good long yoga stretches, riding a bike, taking the stairs when possible, signing up for the office sports team, and kicking a soccer ball in the park. When I am a good girl, I join one yoga class a week, it is conditioner for my body soul and mind. I’m also looking forward to doing more with a kettle bell, I used it a lot when I took the PT education in London. My teachers in london were Kettle bell fans.

Interval training, running, kettle bell, yoga, bike, stairs, sports — who needs a gym membership when you have all of that? (Competitive athletes, fitness junkies, body builders, and various people who for some reason find it convenient to go to the gym I am one of them. But you can get amazing workouts without the gym especially now, when its summer use the beach and parks – or anywhere. On my last trip to Las Vegas I did yoga on the airplane in the hallway, I am a little nuts – but sitting down for so many hours made me restless so I did some static yoga poses that got my blood flowing)

kettle bell

Not having a gym membership has other advantages. It gives you the flexibility to take the occasional class wherever you want. Try that boxing studio near work, make Saturday a yoga day, take a dance class. I can imagine It’s easier when you don’t have gym guilt holding you back.

Another great tip is to force yourself to get a bigger interest in health and fitness, by reading some basic facts you will get more motivation and curiosity, and try out some workout routines and healthy foods.

6 things to do if you want to become a morning gym person ;)

image

Im not a morning person.

I would sleep in until 11 a.m. every day.

Born out of frustration with myself for sometimes skipping the gym and going for a run, because it’s quicker and easier. I decided I’d go to the gym in the morning so I’d have no more excuses.

How hard could it be?

Turns out, very. Here are six things to try if you want to go to the gym in the morning.

1. Prepare everything the night before

Before I go to bed, I pack everything I want to wear the next day in my gym bag and lay out my exercise clothes and sneakers to wear the next morning.

Packing away my gym outfit forces me to take the extra step of removing it from my gym bag if I don’t make it to the gym. It’s a small step that’s just annoying enough to incentivize me to just throw on my workout gear and head to the gym.

Plus, if you already know what you’re going to wear the next day, it will save you time rummaging through your closet.

2. Set your alarm for earlier than you need to wake up

I’m convinced sleeping in and snoozing your alarm is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Because I know that it takes me about two tries before I actually get out of bed, I set my alarm even earlier than I need to so I still feel like I’m sleeping in.

Crowded New York subwayIf I can skip the morning rush, I’m happy.

Though I realize that it’s not technically sleeping in if you’re still waking up at the right time, I find I can lie to myself more easily when I’m drowsy in the morning and feel like I’m still getting some extra shut eye.

3. Find your motivation

Going to the gym every day is all about finding the right motivation. For some people, that might be trying to hit a goal weight, fit into a certain item of clothing, or look great naked. For me it’s looking great naked hahaha 😉

The gym I go to is a few blocks away from my home. It makes it very easy for me to reach it, I can walk or run there.

Whenever I’m feeling really unmotivated, I think about the feeling I have after I went to the gym. I feel AMAZING!!

4. Drink a lot of water

As soon as I wake up, the first thing I do is DRINKING as much water as I can. Not only has it been shown to have a lot of great health benefits, like jumpstarting your metabolism, but it also energizes me almost as much as cup of coffee in the morning.

Plus if you’re going to go work out, you should be hydrated.

5. Eat something

eggs with toast breakfastI eat eggs and some fruit maybe rice if i am doing weights, so I am sure I have enough energy. if I am doing cardio only, I eat fruits.

While some people wake up starving in the morning, I’m not one of them. Still, I find I workout much more effectively if I have something to eat before going to the gym.

Lately, I’ve been grabbing fruits like a banana or an apple before my cardio session, but any sort of fuel will do the trick.

6. Remember you just have to show up

The thing I tell myself as I’m dragging my feet out the door every day is that I just have to show up. Simply by touching my feet to the treadmill, I will have been successful. I don’t even have to go for a run if I don’t want to.

Once I get to the gym, I realize how easy it would be to start running. I mean, the treadmill is right there. And after a run, I could go shower immediately, but the weights are close by — why not lift for a little bit as long as I’m here?

It turns out, showing up really is half the battle in the morning.
