Workouts to do on holiday & at home

Hey guys! When I went to Thailand I filmed some of my workouts for you guys so you could get inspiration for exercises to do on holiday without access to a gym or at home either outside or inside.

I know you can feel like you have no option when you’re traveling because you can’t seem to find a gym or you don’t want to pay for only a few days of working out, but these exercises are perfect to do anywhere and anytime! You don’t need any equipment either, but I would recommend getting one of those resistance bands as they are perfect to bring everywhere and can give you even better results when you are only using your own body weight.

I hope you can find some inspiration!

My Best Workout Tips

AE738AD5-EA58-4F4B-926A-5F2DBDC8E506

  • Find your own thing! Cardio, weights? Intervals, powerwalks, crossfit? I used to only do cardio (mostly because modeling had gone to my head), but now I’ve realised how much I love weight lifting. I also love intervals or running outside to clear my head. It always helps! But it needs to be outside, if not I just find it way too boring.

  • If you’re feeling super annoyed, angry, frustrated or sad – put on some power music and get to the gym to do your favourite exercises. I always feel like it in some way gives me my strength and power back. I can go back home, take a nice shower, put on some cozy clothes and think new thoughts with a much clearer head.

 

  • Good music or podcasts! Sometimes I want music that makes me give that last push, but somedays I get bored so easily and it can be more of a struggle to go – that’s when I love my podcasts. I usually listen to true crime, and having something interesting to listen to as I make my way to the gym and also do my exercises makes it so much easier on a more slow and unmotivated day.

  • Try new exercises! Ohhh so many times have I gone into a pattern of just doing the same things over and over… You get so bored. Trying new things is always a good idea, and it can easily make you go more often and generally do more work at the gym. Or outside. I find that if you look up the right pages on Instagram you can get some good, new ideas!

 

  • Consistency. If you want results, you can’t just do some sort of exercise once a week every month. It does take some dedication and discipline. The main thing for working out should be staying healthy, but even with that there’s many of us that keeps on saying “I don’t have time”.  You need to plan. Sometimes it might take an early morning or a late night to just get it done. Or if you don’t want to spend the morning or evening at the gym, it might take you putting your gym clothes in your bag for after work. Or that you get up from that couch one hour earlier instead of laying there with your phone in your hand, just scrolling.

  • It needs to be healthy. Too healthy can quickly get very unhealthy. I know. And I know a lot of you guys know. If you’re stressing too much about it, if you feel like you’re losing yourself in any way or that you’re just not okay with the whole food, gym, healthy, strong thing – then stop. Stop and talk to someone who will be there for you to listen and help you out. It should be something you do for the health of your body and mind, it should never go the other way ❤ That will never make you happy. It’s so important to not exclude the life you love to live just because you exercise. Pizza, snacks and lazy days are still so important.

New Photos From My Photoshoot!

Here’s some of my latest pictures from one of the photoshoots this week! I loved the vibes – the location was Downtown LA in the Diamond District. I have more pictures coming up as well – so stay tuned!

I woke up today with a cold and I think it’s a mix between lack of sleep and the air in this apartment. Not making it better because of all the fires going on as well, it affects the air for sure. I have gotten all my work done though, and now I have these last days to just have fun in L.A before I’m headed home!

Yesterday we were doing bonfire on the beach but I was literally half asleep the entire time. It was really cosy and nice, but when my body and head is tired I’m just not working properly. So we went back, the other girls went out and I took a long shower with the lights turned off, music and scented candles. It’s my new thing, lol. Always makes me feel so relaxed and good.

Now I’m gonna go to the gym! Hope everyone’s good!

Clubs, Modeling, Friends – in LA

Local time LA: 13:26 pm

Hiiiii guys! Right now I am DEAD, I had two gym sessions this morning. I was supposed to have a pt session first but they didn’t show up so I went by myself. Then I went to meet Emma, a Norwegian girl that I actually haven’t met before, but we’re from the same place – so it’s really cool being able to meet her here! We met at a different gym and had a session together, so that’s the reason for my tiredness right now. 

Other than that I’m going out for the first time tonight, and from what I’ve heard I think I’ll like it. It’s the same thing with promoters and that, but obviously I’ve yet to experience it in LA. I’ll take photos tonight and tell you guys more tomorrow!

You guys might know that I’ll visit some agencies while I’m here as well, I’m trying to do more commercial now – and as LA for sure is the place for that there’s also a crazy amount of models here. Or at least everyone decides that they are. But I’m excited to get some more experience in the industy here, and it would be cool to come back to an agency here sometime down the road. 

I’ll take more pictures for you guys as well, don’t worry! I’ve just been filming the last part of the vlog and just kinda finished my “settling in” part. So stay tuned!

Outfit from the day I got surprised! Love the blue together.

The video from this day is actually being uploaded now, so it will be out really soon! Excited to show you guys. Dan did all the filming and has also done all the editing. Will of course let you know when it’s out, but if you want to be there to see it first just subscribe to the YouTube channel here. 

Soon time to go gym now and finish up with the other video I’m doing for you guys! But first I need to unpack all my stuff, except for summer clothes. That’s gonna feel sooo good – to not live in a suitcase at home and also only packing clothes for warm weather, ah.
