Welcome to a marvelous Monday!!
I hope the weekend has been treating you well. Mine was pretty good, so let’s jump right into the recap. Thank you Katie for the marvelous host!!
Friday night we had a girls night out in Zurich – I LOVE it, it’s always a blast when the 5 of us are together. Unfortunately one became sick and we remained the 4 of us.
Predrinks at Jack’s place…
Then we had dinner at a fabulous Italian Restaurant near her home. After drinking more champagne while waiting for the food, it finally arrived – I had a grilled ‘dorade’ (gilthead??) with oven vegetables – it was worth the wait. SO GOOD! I also had a bite of the tiramisu – when I remembered that I don’t like coffee. Awwyeah. But then I had a coffee. Why am doing this?? Probably because I had Limoncello after my main course and got drunk without even realising it. This stuff is nasty.
Good thing we skipped clubbing and went home after a hilarious dinner!
Saturday. Someone please remind me what I did Saturday – I have no freaking clue! All I know is that I spent the morning in my pajamas and breakfast on the couch in front of the tv, reading blogs, eating and watching soaps. Love these kind of weekend mornings. #sorrynotsorry. I was still so sore from Crossfit and weightlifting, so I made a huge effort to move as little as possible. Win.I think we went out once to do some grocery shopping and have a coffee at Starbucks. Honestly, who am I, ordering coffee wherever I go?? I guess I thought I would like it if I order it with 3/4 of milk in it. With my current sensitivity, I ordered soy milk. It was gross. Even with ridiculous amounts of cinnamon. I took a bite of Sandro’s ‘duffin’ (Donut/Muffin – get it?) to compensate. Fail once more. I might stick to chicken, broccoli and lemon water in the future! Or at least prosecco and chocolate. Speaking of, that was kind of my lunch. Not the latter, but roasted chicken breast, lamb lettuce, balsamic vinegar, a sweet potato and red beans.
I passed out way too early for a Saturday night, but my body obviously was still catching up on sleep. Sunday morning, I felt well rested and went for a 50minutes run, followed by half an hour of Tara Stiles Yoga. I had to skip my Yoga classes this week due to my working hours, so it was highly needed. I love this session to open up the hips. Feels so good.
Postworkout breakfast were Protein Blueberry Pancakes!! I smothered and dipped them in soya/PB2-yogurt. Oh my , I missed them so much. Even though I am supposed to be eliminating the eggs – they have to make an appearance in my meal plan from time to time.
Sandro was off to the baptism of his godchild and I did some more office work at home, meal prep AND experimented with a sweet treat for Davida’s Valentines Bake Off. If you want to participate in the bake off, here are the details! Recipe for this one is coming on Valentines Day when I’m on my way to Spain. Haha.
My friend Anne came round later in the day for an extended teabreak and chat (and taste testing the above BALLS) until it was time for dinner, which consisted of leftovers. Chicken, Asparagus, Broccoli, Cherry Tomatoes. That’s it – back to the Office today for 3 more days and then 10 days off!! YAY!
What did you have for dinner last night?
Predinner Drinks are called Apéro here in Switzerland and are very popular – sometimes it’s not even followed by dinner, only drinks and appetizers. Is it popular where you live?
Do you take restdays?
