Let’s get this party started! WIAW party is the subject today so join in and check out all the What I ate Wednesday’s over at Peas and Crayons! I made sure to have some greeeeeeen in my eats these days!!
I have to throw in a short story before I head on to this Tuesday food. Sandro and me had our 31/2 years (three and a half – not 31 and 2….) anniversary yesterday. Don’t ask me how that tradition began, but we always celebrate this one more than the full year, probably because he always remembers it and I don’t. We wanted to take a picture of us, which turned out to be a hilarious fail. First of all, we both looked
fucked up pale, worked off, make-offed and tired and…..it took a little time to get settled….
…then we had no clue where the camera is…..
…when that was sorted out
we were already drunk couldn’t hold our eyes open…..
….and when we finally made it, we could only burst in laughter.
I got up at 5 am only to find ANOTHER bottle of champagne, PLUS a sweet letter and a gift voucher for a fancy SPA Hotel in Marbella/Spain for the next time we will be there (October).
Only 5 am in the morning and I was already happy. I jumped on the Spinning Bike for 45 minutes and after that headed off to the station to catch the train to Basel. My Go-to Breakfast was a piece of Banana Bread, a Protein-Plum-Coconut-Cookie and a Bowl of Low Fat Curd Cheese with Cocoa. No greens yet, besides the bowl!!!
When arriving at the office, I made myself a huge cup of green tea and an hour later I was already hungry again…..
I had a Lunch date at my favorite Sushi Bar with a good friend! I LOVE the Sushi Band. Despite being horrendous expensive, I am in love with Sashimi. And look, and I had some greens too!
When I come home after work and don’t go to the gym, I need some time to find my relaxation and inner peace before I start my evening. I don’t know what that is, but I do struggle a lot with the moment of ‘stress release’ when I come home and tend o fall into a slump. In my deep ED days, these were the moments where a binge started.
To avoid the slump, I found some strategies like a short Yoga session, meditation, a shower, a light workout etc. So to ‘beam’ myself to a sunny place, I did 2 Toneitup.com workouts (they are mostly taking place on a beautiful beach) and then did my daily hamstring-stretching-poses and hip-openers….just as my trainer told me🙂 To finish and relax, I went through a guided 10 minutes Savasana.
A shower after and I was a walking Zen-Tree🙂
The green Queen came for dinner!!!
In the mix: 1 Avocado (YES, a WHOLE!!), 1,5 scoops protein powder, 2 handfuls spinach. Since I tend not to feel very satisfied with a ‘drink’ for dinner, I chopped up some carrots to munch on. Nothing wrong with these orange babies.
Relaxing time is also dessert time. I always make sure to have some dark heaven floating around in my house….
Ok friends, here you have it – HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!
Do you have an afterwork routine?
