Welcome to the last MIMM Party in April. This week will be short since 1st of May is a holiday, woot! Let’s celebrate some more marvelousness over at the Healthy Diva’s Site!!
So let’s jump right into some weekend fun!!
Friday was GRIT-day as almost every Friday. GRIT is a 30 minutes very intense Interval training. Every time I go, I want to leave at the same time – it’s so scary. But after the workout, the feeling is great! I use to go with Oli, my gym-buddy and good friend and recently, Peter joined us and the fitness party is perfect.
These weights make me hungry. They look like pumpkin- or apricot pies. Don’t you think so?
I think I deserved a reward and was looking forward to my appointment….a trip to spaceland…..
The result is this – I was very adventurous and even dyed my hairline blonde… 🙂
First there was a package from one of my favorite blogger-ladies. We did an inofficial Foodie Penpal exchange and look what I got! Tons of healthy bars, nutbutter packs, a HOMEMADE SCONE, and other
crack goodies. Sadly, I have to wait till the Whole30 is over, but some anticipation feels just great!!
Besides that, my vitacost-order arrived and I am FINALLY stocked up on my favorite nutbutters. I also ordered some packs of the cacao coconut butter and let me tell you – it’s heaven. And paradise. All together.
AAAAND that wasn’t the last surprise….our barbell and bench arrived too and Sandro fixed it all, I was so happy! Now there will be some powerlifting happening around here….
Sandro was out on Friday night, so I had the couch on my own and was enjoying my #strangebutgood-meal….
Saturday morning, my friend Anne picked me up and I accompanied her to the garden’s market. She wanted to pick up several things to make her garden spring/summer ready, so I was more than happy to help her. The Market was huge and beautiful!!
After this restday I felt fresh and energized on Sunday morning and hit an Interval Cardio workout, the powerlifting I postponed to late afternoon.
After working out I spent some time at the computer until I was sure to eat the letters of my keyboard if I wouldn’t grab food immediately. I swear.
The brunch was a new recipe experiment, it’s blog-worthy and I will share it on Tuesday!
Sandro was away with his brother for wedding planning (Nooooonononono. Don’t get excited. His brother’s wedding. Not ours. Phew!) and I spent an easy Sunday with
stalking reading blogs, doing some meal prep, going for a walk and watch people and before dinner I rocked the new barbell for a 30 minutes weight lifting session.
Cookingwise I was lazy and just packed dinner into a casserole, poured over some spiced up coconut milk and threw it into the oven. Pretty darn simple and pretty darn delicious. The salmon gets so soft and juicy in the oven, it’s desperately tasty.
What did you have for dinner last night? Tried anything new on the weekend?
Hairdresser appointments – love them or hate them? I LOOOVE it. As long as it lasts not longer than 2 hours (most of the time it’s less), I love to sit there and bath in all the celebrity gossip magazines. P.E.R.F.E.C.T.
