Getting the 🎄😍

My day started with the cardio mountain!

The weather in Switzerland is so good now! First part of the walk is like this longer up its snow! I even saw a mare and her foal

Had a orange in the car before I headed to the stables

I started with grooming Alf’i, then he was on the treadmill I prepared food for Picsou and Alf’i for one week

Groomed Picsou and put him on the TM! Really grateful for the treadmill, cause Picsou is really to wild to hand walk for 45 min! Then he starts to make tricks to escape! And he is suppose to only walk or ride in walk and trot! So it’s a good alternative to use the treadmill

Jill also got her time! Grooming and hand walking! Even if she isn’t in training she is not a horse that gets wild! So it’s easy to go for walks with her

Duc and me rode in the outdoor! The washing places was occupied and I had to tack him on here! He has a saddle pad on from JS horse mades, you can find it on Instagram and Facebook

Dressage in the big paddock! Duc was fresh and happy to work! We did mostly transitions and work to make him loose in both sides! He was really good and easy today

❤️Francois picked me up and we went to buy a Christmas tree😍decorates it when we got home❤️ !

❤️Francois put the star on the Christmas tree!

So happy with the decorating and the tree😍😍😍😍🎄

New designs on the way

Cardio mountain today also! Getting colder so I’m so happy to have some good functional running clothes! Actually Norwegian brands, Kari Traa and Norønna!

after that I went to Lausanne to check out some fabrics for new Pro Horse items that are coming soon I hope! Had a quick stop at Starbucks before I headed to the stables

Dressage for the horses today also!

Teddy was so fresh! Haha! At one point he just made a screaming noice and started to jump around haha! But he calmed down and I was able to work him normal! Always with focus on the quality of the canter! Has also started to do a little faster and slower in canter now, and still are able to have a okey quality

Dressage for Ice Tea and Duc also! Both good! Easy to ride today! Did a lot of side movements!

Back home with my👑KING❤️

Staid a long time in bed with ❤️Francois this morning before I went for my cardio mountain!

Followed by a quick shower and change in to some nice clothes to have lunch with ❤️Francois and his friends

I was late in the stables and wrote all the horses inside dressage in low deep shape! They all behaved perfect!

Haha! Look how fluffy Duc is now! And look funny he stands on this picture

Trying horses in Italy

Slept at a very nice little hotel with a really good and cozy breakfast!

Adham tried many good horses! Adham came directly from a show jumping competition when he arrived in Switzerland! So he had only white pants with him! He luckily fitted a pair of JEM L! And looked really cool in them He really loved the pants and thought they was really comfortable to ride in! He also felt that he had super grip and that was good because the horses jumped GREAT Natale and Adham

I also tried this amazing horse Komodo! He is for sale so if someone is looking for a top GP horse, here he is! He is 11 years old and a real winner! Very safe to jump on

Also news, is that I got a dog together with one of my best friends Eyvind the name of the dog is Terry, a wire fox terrier just like tin tin had! He will live with Eyvind in Oslo!

To Italy

My morning was quite hectic! Did my cardio running in the neighborhood where me and ❤️Francois live!

Went to the stables, followed by some errands for Pro Horse regarding the new collection!

I picked Adham up in Montreux and we headed to Italy!

We arrived at 20.30 so quite late! Adham tried a really nice Diamant De Semlilly in the indoor before we went with Natale and Stefano to eat at a really nice restaurant!

I learned that every little town has their own pasta, and the pasta from Brescia was DELICIOUS!! Incredible!

Slept over at a really nice hotel not far from the stables!

Jumping day

Day started early with picking up my new friend Adham at the airport in Geneva! He was looking for some new horses and had his eye on Ice Tea. Although Ice Tea most likely was sold he was going to try him in case he was not.

Adham got along good with Ice Tea! Ice Tea was as always a very very good boy!

Afterwords I jumped with Duc! And Duc was really on fire today! He has not really jumped since the show in Milano, and was showing off today! He is just so super!has just two gymnastic exercises and a oxer and a vertical on the diagonal, a combination and a line over 3 strides vertical! Look at him

Next was Teddy! He has improved so much with these gymnastics! He’s front leg is perfection here and also he was hitting the ground more in the push off we also tried some bigger jumps on him! He did it well but would like more power in the push off on the individual fences! what is funny with Teddy is that he jumps better in the ring at shows! It’s actually incredible! He get a couple of new extra gears that he normally does not have! anyway I’m very happy with him!!

❤️Francois and Adham

Me getting the ice for the horses and talking to Instagram

We went to holy cow and got some burgers, and afterwords I did my cardio mountain! saw some horses on my way up! So sweet, a mare and her foalon top! Such a pretty view, liked this so much! The cow on the green hill! Wanted to share it with you!

The love for the horse

Do you remember when you first saw the horses?

I do! It was love at first sight! I even got happy if I saw horse poop on the street! Horses on tv, horses in the field, people riding on horses!

I am a true animal lover! And I was happy to see all animal and birds also

Happiness was to be allowed to brush a horse! To give them a snack! Even to help mucking out and make the stall for a HORSE nice! It was so much fun!

And to be allowed to ride a horse! Or just sit on him a couple of rounds in walk on the ring riding, where your parents pay for a round was heaven! OH HOW I LOVED IT! And I’m so grateful that my parents let me do it! And that they paid that 10 Norwegian kroner to let me ride a couple of rounds on a horse!

And now, to many of us have forgotten all about that. Stressing trough the day with the horses, not enjoying to brush them, but doing it quick so you or your rider can ride them.

At the moment I don’t have a groom, and I have to say I really enjoy the time I spend with taking care of the horses every day!

I enjoy using a long time to brush them! And appreciate how blessed I am having 7 HORSES that I can brush and take care of as much as I want! 7 INCREDIBLE horses that are there for me everyday! 7 horses that are waiting for me, that are happy to see me, that want me to spend time with them! WOW! This was my dream for as long as I can remember!

Even if some of them are injured, they are there for me, and I can be there for them! When I was little and my pony Jolly Jumper was lame one year, I did not put him aside or assumed other interest! I still had the same fun coming to the stables, handwalking him! Brushing him, mucking out his box, preparing his food! Cleaning the tack just for fun!

And now just because Picsou is injured should not mean he should get less attention, i mean, he does not know! When I have a groom I also tend to focus on other things and the groom spend more time with the injured horses than me. And I guess thats okey! Because the horse still gets the time! But I can see how happy Picsou is that its me and him!

Look at him! I was cleaning his leather halter while he was wearing it! He stood totally still, even when I was drying it with the towel, and so happy just to interact with me!

Alf’i got a shower yesterday and a hair cut today! I like the hair cut straight off but not everyone agrees with me😂😂😍

Alf’i also got the braids! He’s happy

If was quiet quiet in the stables today even though it was a Saturday! Her is Quin! I think he looks good in this body even though he has not been ridden since May this year

I rode Teddy first, forest today also dressage for Duc! Who is doing well with his nose! Last days of antibiotics for him today Forest riding for Ice Tea too

In the evening ❤️Francois took me out on a date! Look at him 😍 I am so blessed ❤️Francoiswe both have come to like sushi very much

Duc is doing well

Since he had stitches in his ones yesterday he was surprised with a bag of cut up carrots today! it’s like when I was little, if I was sick I got to decide what was for dinner that day!

Day went by as always! Here’s Picsou on the treadmill! I find his coat really shiny and like a darker chestnut color now! Beautiful he gets a white hoof cream on his hoofs because he has a crack in one! This one is more moisturizing than the black one

Alf’i got a very very needed wash! With a big bucket of shampoo! I took the braids out and tomorrow I will cut his mane and make new once! I make them to make the mane stay at one side! And in cases like Ice Tea, Quin and Teddy also so they mane gets thinner. If you have the plaits in long enough hair falls off! And I don’t like to pull the hair off on the horses so this is the best solution for me

Ice Tea has had his mane plaited down almost since I got him! And now his mane is perfect

Teddy and me went for a forest ride! Galloped a lot and let him stretch out! He is very easy to stop! Haha, must be the easiest of them all! The other horses gets like! HEY YOU LETS GO! And they run so fast that they pretend not to hear my HooooHoooHOOOO

Duc got just a long hand walk today! The vet said I could ride him! But felt sorry for him, so I took him for a hand walk instead! and of course he gets water from a water bucket now! No chance he needs to use his poor nose to push on the water cup!

Got this beautiful drawing of me and Teddy’lino on Instagram

Exercise and riding

That’s basically how the days goes by! But that’s just awesome! Because that’s things I love!

So started the day with my cardio mountain! Grateful that it’s still so warm that I can walk more than half way up like this! With just a sport top, have a long sleeve to take the train down meet this cute tiger cat view is beautiful and they have put up some kind of little house here..? Not sure what is says, but it looks happy anyway!

Then stables time! Normal, grooming my horses! having them on the treadmill or/and hand walking

Me and Picsou! He’s to wild to hand walk! Just to get safe to the treadmill and back is a victory for me😅

This day actually Duc got bitten by another horse in his nose! It was not one of our horses! But he has to sew around 20 stitches.. he did some dressage before that and was really good at training! me and teddy went in the forest and I let him gallop a lot! But here’s a picture from yesterday when I rode in the indoor! Am I the only one who like to ride with my jeans jacket?

Dressage with Ice Tea! he was super! Easy to bend both ways and listen really good back and forward! Very happy with him!

Exercising, meal plan and discipline

I have got about a thousand or more questions about my diet and exercise plan!

But what I do most likely is not the right plan for you, because I am me, and you are you! My body is build up more or less of one type of fiber and yours can be totally different!

My strength it that I LOVE to exercise! So I GLADLY do it, with great eager! Pushing myself is a joy! Except for the treadmill, please don’t Keep me on it for more than 30 min! Running outside, no problem! And it’s funny, a couple of years ago it was the opposite, running outside was something I disliked, but could gladly stay over a hour on the treadmill!

I always do some form of cardio in the morning! If it is running in the neighborhood where me and ❤️Francois live, or if it’s my favorite mountain cardio where I walk/run up a mountain and take the train down! Even if it’s cold or I don’t feel like it I minimum do at least 20 min cardio in the morning! Even those days where we have to go from home early. I force myself and use my discipline to just do it! It’s for me

When it comes to my diet I don’t exactly eat clean! I usually start the day with a banana and a protein pudding, and 0.5 liter water and a cup of tea! Then I do my cardio, after that I am most likely to stop at a gas station to buy a snickers and a croissant. So croissant 500KCAL , snickers 250z already there the 700kcal I burned during my cardio get filled up by shit I probably should not consume.

When I arrive at the stables I change my clothes and eat part of my salad, containing a apple, tomato, spinach, avocado and paprika together with ether salmon or chicken. Many times it contains a lot of taco sauce and cream fresh! Then I ride a couple of horses, and eat more of my salad. I probably also eat a pear, or watermelon or something else I like during my time in the stables!

I also sometimes have scrambled 6 eggs and put it in a container box together with some strawberry jam and some cut up apple pieces. That I also eat sometimes instead of the salad!

When I come home it’s dinner! It’s often sweet potato, cooked spinach, or Broccoli, fish or meat! We don’t eat a lot of pasta or potatoes at home!

But we do how ever go out to eat a lot, then I usually eat 3 courses, starter, main and dessert!

And we also have to count in the Mc Donald’s and Starbucks I frequently go to! I mean, I’m gold card at Starbucks

Not to forget that I also go to the gym in the evening! So I can easy eat all this!

But if you want to stay slim or loose with this is a diet I would recommend:

When it comes to exercising it’s most IMPORTANT TO HAVE DISCIPLINE!

Y O U H A V E T O D O I T

make a weakly plan, even if you start working at 06.00, make a plan that you run or power walk 20 min before you get dressed for work! Have a small round you do in your neighborhood that takes about that time, and make it a habit that you MUST do it Monday to Friday! Even if it rains or snows – You need to get around that round!! It does not take a long time and if you get vet or cold you are quick home anyway!

Next after work, make one day running or power walking, up hill is even better, check out YouTube or Instagram and find out what muscles you want to train and use t to learn how to do it! So after work min one hour exercising!

If you have the possibility to go to a gym that’s super! Choose one day to have off from training, maybe Saturday or Sunday! And one of the days instead of getting up in the morning for your 20 min round you do a 2 hour workout, 30 to 50 min cardio and the rest of the time to do different exercises to build muscles!

AND STICK TO IT! It’s only 2 hours of your day, and it’s to improve yourself! So do it for your own good!

here is a meal plan I made for Francois. And it’s good for anyone who want to eat clean, loose weight and be healthy

if you are in school or have a office job, snack on a lot of cut up cucumbers, they have almost no calories and will fill you up so you stay away from the sweets! Drink a lot of water! On Wednesday’s and Saturday’s you can eat what you want (within reasons) so if you craving for a Ben n Jerry’s on Monday, write it down on your phone and buy it on Wednesday! By doing that it will calm your craving and you’ll make it to Wednesday without sugar!
