I hope it’s a good one today – cause yesterday morning it wasn’t. Let me quickly tell you how I spent my whole Tuesday at the Emergency Room.
I had some weird issues with my ear since a few weeks now and sometimes a little dizziness once in a while – but it passed. I scheduled an appointment with my doc this Friday and thought I would talk to her about it then. So yesterday morning, I got up as usual at 5am and went for a 30minutes run. I came back and did some Tara Stiles Yoga and then jumped into the shower – when it hit. My head started spinning, I staggered around like a complete drunk. It was SO scary, I completely lost control over my body and only turning my head felt like I’m filled up with Tequila. Of course it made me sick and the next moment I hung over the toilet and empited what was in my empty stomach. In between purges I called a taxi and – don’t ask me how – made it to the hospital. They made several tests and checks on my ears and equilibrium organ – but didn’t find anything. I even have a pretty well sense of hearing. The neurologist also came and did some tests which were negative. So now I’m here, knowing nothing – I will have to go on Thursday to make an ultrasound of the carotid artery just to make sure.
Cross fingers I wake up all the neyt days without dizziness. THIS was a darn scary experience.
BUT – we’re not here to talk about how I made friends with the toilet, but what I ate past weekend! Thank you to our lovely hostess!
I was back in my own kitchen after my vacation and loved it. Let’s have a look at Sunday. I worked a back and glute weight session (still sore %ç&*&%/”*) in the morning WITH one of my new Sweaty Bands!! Thanks to this girl’s recommendation I finally found the headband that fits perfectly and doesn’t slip. I then prepared my traditional Sunday breakfast after: Blueberry Protein Pancakes. Here’s the mix: 1 scoop Protein Powder, 3 eggwhites, 2 tbsp plain soy yogurt, 1 handful blueberries, 1/2 tsp baking powder. They turned out so fluffy with the yogurt and the baking powder – AHAmazing.
The weather was absolutely wonderful on Sunday – we are blessed with temps up to 16°C – it feels like spring. I can not remember a February when we had warm temps like this. Anyway, I had a late lunch – I wanted something quick, so I made a tuna omelett on 2 quinoa/rice crackers and an unpictured side salad.
Snack/Dessert were 2 of the Light Chufa Dough Bites – I made another huge batch and I’m so glad I have more for the whole week! As said, you can sub the Chufa flour by Coconut flour, as long as you make them, cause they are really delicious if I may say so myself.
In the evening, I travelled to Basel to meet up with the girlscrew. I can not even believe we made it together that soon after the last date. It was Jack’s birthday and as per her wish, we went out to a Thai restaurant and had a great night with great food.
We finished fairly early, since it was Sunday and some of us had to travel back to another Swiss city. I curled up on the couch for some blog reading before going to bed and munched on one of these – totally obsessed.
That’s it Lovies, have a fabulous day!!
