From 2016 to 2017

I have a lot to tell you guys!

A lot of new and exciting things have happened lately, goals I have reached, all new opportunities and much more.. I hardly know where to begin, so I will try to tell you guys everything and hope I remember everything. I haven’t been writing a lot lately, actually not at all, but I have been insanely busy with my education and just everyday life, my work / internship, my fiancé and my family, so I have neglected the blog, and I am sorry, I hope to have a lot more time from now on, to write, which I really love to do.

Love:

My fiancé and I are doing fantastic, he is truly the love of my life. Everything seems simple with him and I feel stronger and a lot more confident than I ever did before. He changed everything when he came into my life, and I have him to thank for a lot of positive changes in my life. – My education especially, I couldn’t have done it without him and his support, he is nothing but amazing.

We are planning a complete redecoration of our home, and we already did some of it, the kitchen is done all up, and is looking gorgeous! We got a new sofa too, and soon we will get a new TV unit and coffee table. My fiancé have always been amazing at DIY, and our kitchen is made by him completely, the tiling and everything.

We are having a lot of ideas for the future and its so exciting to be able to plan all of this together, I’m a lucky woman.

My education and work:

Well as you all might already know, I started my Care Helper education (SOSU hjælper in Danish), I went to Greve and got an internship, and I started my internship, and I met so many new and amazing people, the colleagues I worked with, have been nothing but amazing, and I felt part of the team instantly. I love working with elderly, and I feel like I’m making a huge difference in people’s life, by just being there and being me – what more could I wish for? – But I got luckier than I ever imagined!

Shortly after my internship, still half a year to go of my education, I got offered another contract by Greve Communes education consultant as an assistant, Nurses Assistant – or Care Assistant if you like. It’s huge to me, I will be skipping my Care Helper education and moving directly on to the Assistant education, the one education that I wished to have, the helper just being a way to reach my main goal.

I will be able to dose pills, do catheter care (flushing them out, insert them and change them), tend wounds – all sorts! I love it, it’s so exciting to me and I can’t wait to begin! I have already started to try different Assistant tasks just before the new year, and now I have a bit of school, I will proceed on the Helper education, until its time to start the Assistant education, which will be Feb the 20th. January I will be doing my internship at the same care center, and there I will be experiencing the work tasks of an Assistant, oh I can’t wait!

I can’t express how grateful and lucky I feel, and how much I appreciate this amazing opportunity, my work means the world to me, and my workplace too, I love my colleagues! I found the one thing that I want to work with, the rest of my life.

Exorcise:

I was the lucky winner of a fitness package from Club Matas, I won a Garmin Smart Scale and a Garmin Vivofit 3 watch!

the weight is Wi-Fi connected, it measures weight, body mass index, body fat, skeletal muscle mass and more, recognizes up to 16 users and have up to 9 months of battery life!

The watch features 1+ year battery life, it shows steps, calories, distance, intensity minutes and time of day on backlit display; monitors sleep, have an auto activity detection classifies activity type on Garmin Connect, it reminds you to stay active with move bar and audible alert and automatically syncs to Garmin Connect to save, plan and share progress.

I love the watch! Am wearing it every day, and It’s amazing, I walk a lot at work, I walk about 6,5 kilometers, for me that’s about 10.500 steps a day, and it shows how many calories I burn doing it, am quite loving this! So in 2017, its time to get fit and watch out for my body, I want to strengthen my back, cause in my line of work, I use my back a lot!

My Coca Cola detox:

I was quite addicted to Cola, I wrote a blog post about the addiction and what it did to me, headaches, dizziness, nausea and tremors when I didn’t drink the stuff, I had pretty much every damn withdraw symptom in the book! It scared me so much, that I quit drinking it, and It’s been a year since I drank the stuff and to be honest, if it wasn’t for my fiancé, I would probably be drinking it still. – I’m thankful, and very proud of myself, I actually stopped drinking that stuff and I quit an addiction! I don’t smoke, I don’t really drink – all I really did was drink Cola, but that was bad enough. Now It’s over and it feels fantastic!

Books:

I started to read a lot again, and I quite adore thriller books, am reading one currently that’s called ”The slaughter man” by Tony Parsons, in English. Have been thinking about writing some book reviews again, I love reading and if I find any good books, I might as well send some reviews your way!

Merry christmas and a happy new year!

Hope you all had a merry Christmas and a happy New Year, I sure did, I was spoilt immensely this Christmas, and my New year was calm and relaxing, just as both my fiancé and I needed. Christmas was spend with my family this year, with duck and a pork roast and all the trimmings us Danes usually have. New years were steaks and salad, cream potatoes and some gorgeous bread. It was highly needed, family around us and some us time, just finally relaxing, we really needed that.

See you guys online x
