I’m back at work after a 2 weeks break – give me wine and chocolate.
It’s ok – as much as I love the holidays, it’s good to be back in a normal routine and actually do something else than just hanging around, cooking and working out.
Let’s start this week on a positive note with the marvelous diva!
It didn’t really feel like weekend, since it was weekend since 2 weeks anyway. BUT – good things happened anyway. FINALLY our new blankets arrived. It took me a lot of effort to convince the man that we NEED new ones – and then it took weeks for them to get here. At least they arrived before I left back to Basel and I could get one night of sleep in in them!
Sandro was out on Friday night and I had time to take care of my feet. Really important, I swear.
Later in the day we went to see Sandro’s parents, it was his Dad’s birthday. Always a fun event, love this family. We then went on – on a date night! It’s been way too long since we went out for dinner together – we just love to cook at home 🙂 We had a voucher which we won at a race last year and so we enjoyed it at the Radisson hotel at the airport in Zurich. I was very tempted to jump on the next plane.
We started with predrinks – I had a simple Campari Soda. Can’t go wrong with this.
They served such a nice bread basket with it – olive and tomato foccacia, grissinis and some kind of rosmary cracker. And you won’t believe it, but I had an Espresso after the meal. Shocking. I gulped it down with my eyes closed and grabbed the biscotti for rescue. Sounds stupid, but it’s good to have coffee in my belly after a meal. Despite hating the taste. I normally drink it with triple amount milk, but I didn’t want to fill me up before bed.
Sunday morning I was ready for a killing workout. I did legs and Bench Press at home and then cycled to the gym for some HIIT and steady Cardio. I prefer to do my strength at home, I have all I need here and don’t have to fight for the bench.
The lack of food pics will be compensated on Wednesday, promised!!
If you drink alcohol, what’s your favorite drink? Mine is obviously prosecco or vodka/campari. The drier the better – I choke on sweet drinks.
Where do your workouts happen? Home, gym, outdoors?
How do you drink your coffee?
