Hey y’all! Happy Wednesday! I am participating in another round of WIAW – What I ate Wednesday, which turns out to be what I ate Tuesday. This fab camapign is hosted by Jen from Peas and Crayons, thank you!
What wiaw *isn’t* about…
So, let’s get started!
I had a little issue on Tuesday morning. I skipped my Crossfit training on Monday evening, because I had so many things to fix at the office (we are moving today, woot woot!!) and at home. I just felt stressed by the thought of changing and heading out, so I cancelled it. Of course the voice in my head was shouting at me, blaming me to be lazy (I did a 30 minutes spinning session in the morning though) and that I would transform into a fat, shapeless something, when I’d start to skip my workouts. Well. I felt guilty, but I wanted to let it go, because I knew that the voice was wrong. It was the first time that I cancelled a planned workout and besides that I am still in the ‘overexercising-mode’, so a rest day was much needed anyway. I called in an early night and was bright and awake at 5:30 in the morning. I decided to head off to the gym to move my booty and to sweat off these negative feelings. I hit the elliptical for a warm up, added a 20 minutes HIIT circuit with the jump rope, lunges and jumping jacks and finished it all by a few weight lifting exercises and stretching.
Good for me, I baked this cute little thing called Banana Protein English Muffin and the recipe is created by genius Danielle. I had some cherry tomatoes and a hardboiled egg on the side as I wouldn’t have been satisfied with this only.
After packing uncountable moving boxes all morning, I was hungry for my lunch! This is one of my favorite wintermeals! It doesn’t look very nice, sorry. But it was goood.
As usual, my body craved sugar after that delicious meal: These bars are SO good. There are so many different flavors I always buy them all as I can never decide!
The afternoon was long. The packing of these eff-moving-boxes seemed not to end. So I had to sit down after finishing it with a midafternoon snack with unpictured almond butter:
Did I mention my boss offered me a glass (or 2…) of champagne because of all the work? Of course accepted 🙂
Fresh air was needed after that day and I went for a short but intense run. And then I was so much looking forward for dinner! I warmed up a pumpkin-chicken-chilli for me and my man which I had in the freezer and it was the BEST – raining and dark outside, and us, sitting inside, cosy and warm with light, warm and comforting food. YUMM! I saw this recipe on Lisa’s site, I think she got it from Chelsea.
And this one I had to post. It was sent to me by my Mom and I love it. It’s me and her – I think I am about 2 years old and she is sweet 25. Her glasses crack me up!!
Have a fabulous day!!
