Welcome to another round of MIMM hosted by my favorite Diva!!
Now don’t be angry at me, but I have to whine again a little bit. Nothing dramatic, but believe me, I am not very upset that this weekend is over. It was a shitty weekend, but hey, never without a little marvelousness! So let’s get this on first:
I started eating egg-free, gluten-free, dairy-free and nut-free this Friday, so I had to skip out on a few things….
So the downside of the weekend was mostly that Sandro and me didn’t get along at all. I have no idea what the matter was, cause there wasn’t really a problem – we just had disagreement after disagreement and our communication was totally off. Well, we’re humans and it happens. As big as the love is, sometimes we don’t really like each other…. 🙂
Then coincidentally after this week of talking about my food habits, my belly started its own life since a few days now. I know this might be TMI for some, but let me just tell you that if I didn’t pay attention, everyone would have thought I’m giving birth to a little baby in less than 2 months. Sweatpants and leggins were the only possible clothes for me all weekend long. FAIL.
To clear my head and getting some movement in, I went for a long and intense run on Saturday morning. It is a trailrun and one of my faves, but it is so darn tough, I can really only do it once in a while. The view was definitely worth it though. It was FREEZING, but beautiful!
Postrun breakfast – carboload! Running 90 minutes on an empty stomach gave me quite the starving mode. My very first egg-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and nut-free breakfast which was really really delicious. Just please don’t make me writing out these 4 words with every meal or I go I-N-S-A-N-E.
Then one more crisis appeared in the afternoon, when I FINALLY FINALLY picked up my Ninja blender – it DIED the second I plugged it in. I know. I’m blonde. Stop it. Sandro already told me enough times how blindfoldly it was to not think about the compatibilitiy of American and Swiss electricity. Now it’s dead and the process of getting it fixed or getting a new one starts. Major fail. But HEY – it’s ONLY a Food Processor. I’m alive – blonde, but alive.
Nothing that can’t be fixed with a little shopping. I wanted kettlebells at home since months now and I made a GOOD deal with those!! Additionally, I need knee socks for Crossfit. We do crazy stuff like climbing up a rope and believe me, my shins look like I had a big fight with a tiger (which I had of course and I won.). And why not some new shorts?
Some good food for dinner was a must too.
I slept like a stone after all these crises (I had to google plural of crisis, I wrote crisises first, duh – LOL) – and was awake and ready for the last strength workout of week 3 of James Wilsons program. These workouts ROCK. Ready to tackle week 4!!
Postworkout – FUEL! I experimented a little with the breakfasts this weekend – I didn’t want to load them up with carbs and protein powder all the time. So I found a lactosefree no fat quark which is really good and I hope it is ok for me to eat now. I mixed it with glutenfree oats, blueberries, a spoonful Vega Protein Powder and homemade chunky applesauce. Green Tea on the side. Pretty darn delicious. Rest of Sunday was lazy – belly and communication still acting crazy 🙂 though we made it for a long walk to talk some stuff out.
And to end this post on a marvelous note – in times like this, it is so important to focus on the big picture. Like – what all do I have? What is positive? I’m healthy. I’m fit. I have family, wonderful friends, a place to live and a great job. We all have ebbs and flows, it’s normal – the challenge is to grow with them instead of letting negatives bring us down.
Today’s a new start! Happy Monday!
Ladies – feel me on the days with sweatpants and leggins as the only option? (Please say yes)
Did you ever go trailrunning? One of my favorite workouts.
What is your idea for a gf, df, ef, and nf breakfast??
