Thank you all so much for all of your sweet comments about Hans’ 3 month job training. It makes me feel better to know that I have so many wonderful readers out there that are truly looking out for me. When I started this blog, I could never have imagined all of the beautiful things it has brought me- confidence, running, amazing readers, new friends.. It’s crazy what this little blog can do. Alright moving on with the mushy stuff, this is gonna be quick because Glee is on soon! I went to the gym for a quick strength training session to get out of the apartment and to try to stop feeling sorry for myself. It worked for the time being, and it’s a plus that I got a good workout in.
Afternoon snack was my daily apple. Happy to say it was a gala and not a honeycrisp. Ahh, yes.. curse me, I don’t like honeycrisp apples.. oh well.
Haha, how creative Haleigh. Since I normally snack on fruit in the afternoons, I tried to get creative with the photography instead of the food. I am not much of a snacker, more of a 3 square meals kinda gal. If I have a larger snack in the afternoon then I am never hungry for dinner. In my opinion, you need to find healthy habits that work for you and this works for me.
Dinner was fab and creative, however. I had the last of the TJ’s sweet apple chicken sausage with 1/2 cup cooked quinoa, spinach, and some almonds and dried fruit. The combo was väldigt gott (very tasty in swedish) 😉
I got asked in my earlier post if I could speak Swedish.. and the answer is yes and no. I can understand about 90% of Swedish, which means I can read it and I understand when other Swedes are talking to each other but I ,myself, am not a fluent speaker. Example.. If two Swedes are having a conversation I would often jump into the convo in English because I could understand what they said but I couldn’t express myself in Swedish. I can get around using Swedish in Sweden and I can have a simple conversation but I couldn’t have a complex convo in Swedish, if that makes any sense? It was the weirdest thing for me when I had lived there for almost a year.. and the first time I thought of a word in Swedish and couldn’t think of what it was in English. I had gone to the gym earlier that day and I was telling my friend that I had träningsverk.. and she asked me what that word was in English and I drew a blank!!! Finally, after several odd minutes of thinking I remembered that träningsverk was sore in English.. I was sore from my workout! haha, funny story.. anyway, I am getting off track here… So, yeah.. dinner was delicious! with a side of baked okra fries.
My sweet tooth was screaming loud and clear tonight!! I just could not ignore it so I dove into the depths of my freezer and found a chocolate peanut butter cookie from Penny’s low fat desserts.
The cocoa taste was very rich but I am sad because I could hardly taste the peanut butter. It was pretty good for a ‘healthy’ cookie and it satisfied my sweet tooth. For now.
Can you speak any foreign languages? I took Spanish in middle school, and French in high school and college but I think I am most comfortable speaking Swedish as my second language. I really love languages which is why it’s my major. Good night!
