Fotball Frue, written by Caroline Berg Eriksen, is by far my favorite fitness blog. Turns out, tons [ & tons ] of other peeps agree. This sexy lady runs the biggest blog in Norway…Oh, & she also happens to be married to a hot fotball player [ in the US, he would be a soccer player ], wrote a lovely book [ she’s 25! ], annnnnddd keeps in tip-top shape. Like, seriously AMAZING, Victoria’s Secret-model kind of shape.
When I found out she wanted to collaborate with TSC, I nearly died of excitement.
Anyway, you may have to translate her bloggie & trust me, this is definitely a ‘bookmarker-type blog.’ Here ya go, babes:
+ Inspiration to start blogging?
CBE: Just the fact that I was finished with my journalist education, I wanted some place to write whatever I felt like writing, & I was not sure how to get a dream job immediately, so I felt that a blog was a great way to start [ this was in May 2009 ].
+ Advice for new bloggers?
CBE: Think quality, not quantity. And don’t just post something if you do not have anything interesting to write. Have amazing posts, proper grammar, & take clear, beautiful pictures. The more pictures, the better!
+ Quick skinny tips or tricks?
CBE: Stay away from sugar [ <<< I completely agree!! Such a fab tip. ]! And eat nuts like cashews, macadamia nuts, &/or peanuts if you want a quick snack.
+ Weekly workout schedule?
CBE: I work out five to six times per week [ for about an hour to an hour & a half each session). Since running is what I love, I try to run about forty five to fifty kilometers a week. I also concentrate on my abs, my back, my butt, & my arms whenever I can. I’ll work my abs/back every time after my run, & then the rest of my body two to three times per week.
+ Cocktail of choice?
CBE: I LOVE a ‘Piña Colada’ & Martini Bianco vermouth with ice [ not together- haha, separately ]. But I try to stick to red or white wine on the weekends, but I drink A LOT of ‘Piña Colada’ cocktails & vermouth on the rocks during vacations.
+ Motivation to stay in shape?
CBE: I am going to be a mother one day, and I want to be in my best shape during & after the pregnancy. My dream is to show other women that a pregnancy does not ruin your body. This is my biggest motivation. Also I want to feel good about myself as I age. AND! I want my husband to think I am THE hottest woman ever. Haha :-).
+ Natural beauty remedy that you do?
CBE: I always rinse my face in the morning & right before I go to bed- no matter how tired I am. This is SO important!
