Are you ready – for the weekeeeend???
I am. I SO am. I know that is not a correct english sentence but it’s how I want to express how much I am ready for the weekend.
I have to be honest to you, I wasn’t in a ‘high’ this week. I also wasn’t in a ‘low’ but I definitely had better weeks. Nothing bad happened, but I am just so stressed out by the winter and by this awful weather. Yes, I know there are definitely worse things to be worried about, but this is what bothers my right now. The days are grey, it’s snowraining most of the days, it’s bittercold and wet. Going outside is always a drag and since I absolve my daily schedule with the bike, this weather does not make my life easier currently. And I miss the sun, I feel tired and sluggish and really can’t wait for the spring. I do compensate my stressfeelings with too many treats what makes me feeling guilty and which leads me to overtraining again. I could get by this week, but I struggled and am really tired and can’t wait to get some rest. And if you by now are bored and annoyed by my moaning please forgive me and keep reading, because now we get to the fun and marvelous things from this week!
I am a fan of staying at home all
day and night when it’s weather like this and pamper myself with this…..
I can not get enough of this nail polish lately, I just want them to be red. This one is called ‘RED – the fortune cookie’ which is the perfect name I think.
I ordered these 3 hairbands from Nike!!! I can’t wait for them to arrive. My hair drives me crazy when I workout and these are perfect and look so pretty.
Since I was already on it to do some online shopping why not get another bargain?? I mean….right? And I mean like really….these were on BIG SALE and will fly into my office very soon for only 37 CHF!! Yayness!
I love wearing heavy boots with skirts. Rock it.
Ok, now on to some food and activity. Regarding activity – I have some troubles getting up in the morning and take my pajamas off. Sorry for TMI, but the point is, that my back and my arms are SO sore from my heavy weight lifting workout, I really move like a grandma (sorry grandma). Foamrolling must happen!!
Not only my muscles were sore, my hands were suffering too – means, a beauty session with hand treatment is planned for the weekend!!
I still went to TRX Bootcamp class which wasn’t too bad as it was a lighter workout with a bit of Cardio, perfect for a moderate activity. On the weekend I will definitely have one full restday, truly needed!!
Did you see that a new #plantPower challenge is happening in the blogger world?? Heather and Kasey are rocking it big time and it is really cool. I am in this time since I missed the last one and went for a lot of fresh plantstuff.
For too long I wanted to try this recipe from Meg. I have no idea what took me so long. This is definitely one of the BEST brinners (breakfast for dinner) I had in a long time!!!I am stucked big time.
I made a small adaption by putting only 1 tbsp cocoa but added 1 scoop of Sunwarrior protein. It was to die for, yummmmmmm.
Ok friends, that’s it for today! I am off to Zurich later in the day and will be back here on Monday for MIMM, with all the weekend news!! Have a wonderful weekend!!
Do you like online shopping? Sometimes
when I am bored at work (oh, hi Boss!:-)) – if I look for something very specific it just saves time instead of going downtown and have to pound the streets. Otherwise, I love being in the shops and try the things on right there. And take them home right away!!
What are your favorite berries? Blueberries, Strawberries
Do you participate in the #plantPower challenge? Yes!! It’s fun, a good motivation, gives MANY new ideas and recipes and awesome givaways!!
