Nutritional racists.

People told me to write more about nutrition, so here you go!
I’m studying nutrition, I’m a student and that sucks. And I’m a student in Australia and that sucks even more, just because the food is so expensive here. That’s the only bad thing about living here.
I love food.

This is almost what I eat for one week and for this I payed 120AU$, which is 800 swedish kr. I never bought food for that much money before!
So when you are in the store, you are running after the yellow label on the shelfs 😉

Look at this video my tutor showed in class last week.

 

 

A working body?

Before I moved to Australia I didn’t party a lot back home, mostly in the summer. But here summer is everyday, which makes it a little bit harder!
Back home I tried to stay away from gluten, lactose and sugar – since I got here it’s been going down hill.
I have a lot of problems with my body, and I am that kind of person that thinks that the body will feel and work much better if I eat food that is good for my body – that is why I’m studying nutrition. I find it interesting how the food works for and with the body.
I haven’t stopped believe in this I just have been to lazy to care about my body right now. That, on the other hand, needs to stop.
My body felt so much better before I got here.
So, I’m gonna try this again. Try to eat good and healthy food without gluten, lactose or added sugar.
But, my teacher in my nutrition class told us to be open minded, kind of ”forget” what we read about food and how it affects the body, when we started this program, so I will not be too strict.
But God knows I’m not perfect. I will drink alcohol sometimes, eat some candy, and even a pizza now and then, But I will try to take it down a notch, because I need my body and mind to work with me.

You don’t have to agree with me on this, but you don’t have to judge me either.
My medicineman back home used to say ”Eat with your brain, and not with your mouth.”

Okay. I will eat up my chocolate eggs. Because I bought them. And candy is sooo expensive here 😉

Today I’ve got an ass.

Today my two ladies, Elin & Linda, took me to the gym, and Elin worked the shit out of me.
This day will always be ”the day Penny got an ass”.

Let’s just see of I can get out of bed tomorrow. It will probably be amazing and exactly what I need.

One more day and then I have easter-break. With studying. Need to catch up on my sleep and my books.
I just submitted my first assignment, and I couldn’t be more proud of my self! I made it this far, so I think I will last a little bit longer!
Time to say hello to my pillow. I’ll probably give you another update tomorrow. Just wanted to point out the most obvious thing; I’m awesome.
