Happy Monday to you all!
I hope your day is marvelous so far! If you need some stuff to marvelous-up your Monday, head over to Katie’s page and check out all the MIMM posts from today!!
If the weather is playing its own game, there is not much you can do about it. Normally, this time of the year I walk around in shirts, ballerinas or even sandals, light blouses. Though lately, I rather turn to thick boots, warm rainjackets and gloves on my morning runs.
Well, since there is no choice and my vacation still 14 days away, we just make the best out of it, right? We started our weekend off with our friends at a great Greek Restaurant in Germany. So. much. good.Food.
Sandro and me didn’t spend too much time together lately cause I was away in Spain and we had busy weeks at work, him in Zurich, me in Basel. So we decided to plan nothing else this weekend and just enjoy the free time and chill. The weather was perfect to be lazy and inside. We went for a short walk in town, a visit at the mall and a break at Starbucks with my new favorite drink.
We thought about going to see the Great Gatsby in the cinema, but we didn’t want to leave the house anymore, so we stayed home and I created a new recipe – which was delicious&healthy and will be up on tomorrow’s post!!
I passed out pretty early. I was battling a bad cold all week since I was back from Spain and still felt a little under the weather. So a long good sleep was what my body was asking for.
Sandro got up early as he had a Tennis Tournament on Sunday, and I got up when he left. It was cold and windy outside but at least it did not rain, so I went outdoors and did 20 minutes sprints along the lake and 10 minutes of warm up/cool down. Coming home, I added an intense weight lifting session and finished off with ALL 4 Ab Burners from Gina. My abs were on fiiiiiire!!!
Even though I had a lack of appetite after my workout, I tried to get in some fuel about 1 hour later and prepared a delicious mess of dairy. As said before, I am trying to limit dairy to a minimum, but I love it and so once in a while I enjoy a bowl of my pimped sweet curd cheese.
Do you experience a lack of appetite after a workout? I can be hungry before and starving during the workout, but when I come off the shower, everything is gone. This really irritates me. Anyone knows why that is? I don’t like to force myself into food, but when almost 2 hours have passed after an intense workout, I just totally want to fuel.
I may or may not have shed a tear when I realized that I just finished the last package of this bliss……
I cheated on my beloved raw almond butter with this one several times now and I think I have to order more of it to continue this passionate-delicious affair…..
The rest of Sunday continued to be quiet and my laziness stayed strong. The weather did not clear up and I stayed inside except of a 45 minutes walk when Sandro came back from the game. It was great to have all day to finish my to do list (preparing the giveaway packages for the winners, unpacking last Spain stuff, clean up piles of clothes all around the appartment).
I was VERY much looking forward to dinner since I stock up on my favorite seafood, SCALOPS!! Despite the weather we threw them on the grill. Holy yumm……
Have a wonderful start of the week!
