Edit: Sorry for the long post. Got a bit exited!

Finally I found a place where I can write down some of the things that are on my mind. Well, I did know about this place before, but I haven't really taken the time or effort to start writing. I guess it's just about time it did something about it.

I've been reading a few blogs here and there, but I haven't found too many blogs about dads who exercise or lift weights. There are a few pages that call themselves blogs, but are basically just generic sites who wants you to buy this or that. There might be a few good ones, but there seems to be an opening for me here.

I do not claim to be a fitness guru, but I am genuinely interested in weightlifting. I try to lift weights about five times a week. "But hey, it said on your bio page that you have a job and two kids, how do you have time to lift five times a week?" you might ask. Well, I'll make a post on that later.

I also spend an evening a week learning Krav Maga. Status as of today: Brown Belt - one stripe. If you don't know, Krav Maga is an Israeli 'no compromise' defense system. I think it is totally awesome, and I have a lot to tell about this!

One night a week I also spend some time at my local church, trying to help out with administrative stuff. It helps generating that feelgood one needs in the stomach.

Video games interest me tremendously. I practically have no time to play, but I am still insanely interested, and try to keep up with what's hot and what's not. I currently have a PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, Ninento Wii and a PS Vita (and of course a lot of older consoles). I have a ton of games, but do not get to play them as much as I want to. Should I make a list of that too? Great idea for a new post!

I work at this small company called Sony. :-P This job helps me with my gadget cravings. After I started there my gadget budget has dropped significantly. I am responsible for cameras, PCs and Tablets for THE key customer in the Nordics. I enjoy working there, and look forward for all the opportunities and experiences this job will give me in the time to come.

What have I forgotten? Oh yes - music. I love music! I really enjoy going to concerts and spend time in front of my Klipsch system. Ah... so relaxing. What type of music do I like? Well, it's the type of music most people do not think of as relaxing: Metal. More specifically Black Metal. It doesn't have to be black metal for me to enjoy it. Just kidding! I also enjoy death, trash and heavy metal... Luckily I am blessed with a gift that lets me enjoy any genre! More about music later.

Last, but not least (probably should have started with this), I have my family. Liv- Kristin is my totally awesome wife. She loves me, even though I have quite a few quirks and am addicted to exercising. Together we have Matheo and Milla, who you will probably get to know quite a lot better in the time to come. I am sure they will hate me for sharing some of the things that happen here in the home, but hey, people need to know that they are not the only ones who are struggling, or feel awesome joy with their kids. Besides this blog is in English, and my local language is Norwegian, so it shouldn't affect them too much.

I will probably post a lot of things that you find uninteresting, but I hope you will enjoy some of it at least. To sum it up: weight lifting, Krav Maga, church, video games, job, music and family. And maybe some more!

My wife would now end the blog post by saying: 'Keep calm and bake on'. I think I will end this one by saying: "No more excuses! Push push push!"

Oh, and I promise most posts won't even be half as long as this one!
