It’s raining, it’s raining….oh well, I think I have to get used to this dark and wet view outside for the next couple of days. When it’s weather like this I totally just want to be at home, curl up on the couch, knitting, watching nonsense on TV, drinking tea, eating soup and imagining how nice it ‘d be if I had the money and could stay at the fanciest Spa-hotel for days and get pampered every day. Wuahahaha.
BUT this is not the case, so I’ll just have to get the best out of it!
Like – eating chocolate. Yesssss, come here babe, I want you!!!
Yesterday I had another cosy evening with my best friend at my place. We do that sometimes on a Tuesday: Meeting at my place around 6:30 pm, one brings greens, the other brings protein (and chocolate). We cook, we eat, we chat and then we shut up and watch nonsense on TV. I just love to have a friend around, it doesn’t need to be an exciting event, it’s just so nice to sit together and enjoying the little joys in life. We always prepare so yummy salads!!! Like this one here – dairy free greek salad: Cherry tomatoes, cucumber, hard boiled egg, vegan tofu burger, Walden Farms caloriefree Thousand Island Dressing:
But yesterday we did not shut up. We watched our fave soap, but then we chatted – about so many funny and silly things that I just couldn’t stop laughing. We’ve known each other now since 29 years (we met in kindergarden :-)) and many times we have this non-verbal communication which I love so much between good friends. A glance – and you know what the other one is thinking. And sometimes we just have those silly moments and get the giggles – I really think sometimes I have to die. My abs are sore today, believe me!
When it’s rainy, dark and cold I love my workouts in the pool – especially when it’s free from other swimmers!!
Followed by steambath and sauna. Awwyeah! Rainy days aren’t too bad, right??
Still, I went for a run this morning. I did not run since the race last Saturday, I switched to the spinning bike or elliptical. But this morning, despite the rain and darkness, I wanted to get my booty out there, doing some sprints, tabata and clearing my head with fresh air. It was good and even better when it was over!
🙂 Some weightlifting will be happening later on, need to prepare for my January bootcamp with Shannon.
This is how my postworkout-on-the-go-breakfast-fuels look like! Here’s an eggomelett buried by a huge amount of spinach and a pear (which I ruined my shirt with – juice dropped down while eating it – I am so lame).
I got an Advent calendar from my Mom!! When I was a kid I used to get on with a little wrapped gift every day that was SO cool. She really did it so nice, it always looked so beautiful, all the little presents decorated with blingbling and stars. Today it’s just a little one with picures, but I still love it!!
I definitely need to get my christmas decoration stuff out of the cellar and create some holiday atmosphere at home!
Here’s another and – promised – the last picture of our party the other week. I can’t put it the right way though, don’t ask me why, Possibly because we are just too weird and make the system totally confused. By the way, I had no idea I had such an immensely giant mouth…..I mean seriously??!! I’m scared….
What do you like to do on rainy days?
Do you know these situations with best friends?
How do you manage it to stay healthy when you are busy on the go?
