Haha! OMG, I made it through the week!! Seriously guys, I wasn’t sure if I do. I mean, I am far from being a whiner, but this week – WTF?? Now after my lovely day at the ER on Tuesday, I woke up on Wednesday and felt totally fine. So I thought, oh, why not joining the Crossfit class at 7am? Yeah. At 8am I stood in the shower with terrible pain in my spinal disc and walking was an absolute nightmare. I tore something in my lower back and I could feel my nerves screaming down there with every move I made. Hm. Thank Boss for a standing desk.
I actually regret that I didn’t take a video of me stumbling around in dizziness and crashing against walls and of me lying with my feet up the wall on my yoga mat while watching trash TV and taking 15 minutes to get up and to the bathroom super-grandma-style. I think it would have been great entertainment.
But hey – it’s getting better! The ultrasound came out negative, they feared I had cracks in my throat/neck vessels. AND I can walk again and sometimes even sit. My body obviously wants a break. I get green light by next Wednesday to workout again, if everything heals well.
That of course is a challenge for me, but I take it. My body sends obvious signals, so now I can live what I preach and take a rest! I know I won’t turn into a whale nor will I regress in my progress – I will simply take a break, eat well and heal well.
Fortunately I only have some relaxing plans for the weekend, which is perfect. It’s high time to do some experiments in the kitchen, since it is WAY too long ago that I posted a recipe!! To not let you hanging without food in this post, I want to make a small recipe roundup for dinner ideas – which I still owe you!! Here are my favorites:
Pizza for dinner. Anytime please. Here’s Fajita Eggwhite Veggie Pizza….
More Pizza?? Glutenfree?? Of course!! Homemeade Flatbread Pizza….
And this one is one of my favorite. It’s so balanced, quick and versatile – you can make it with meat, fish or vegeterian. And while it’s cooking, you can sit with your
wine tea on the couch watching more trash tv relaxing. While the Crustless Quiche is in the oven!
You know I love ‘brinner’ (breakfast for dinner)….and if you want to have a fancy version, then I recommend you make it GREEN, as my green pancakes.If you feel snacky – try my different versions of hummus and dip your nachos and veggies in it! Can’t go wrong with that!
Speaking of recipes – I was contacted by Matthew from Predator Nutrition and he sent me an edition of the mini Questbar Recipe Book they created together with bloggers! I love Questbars and I think it is so cool what recipes people come up with. You will even find this girl‘s recipe in the book, so cool!
Check it out here! I have some inofficial Foodie Penpal exchanges going on again, means I will receive a few of the new flavors soon – I can not wait to eat them straight out of the package and try some of the recipes!!
Ok friends – I will go and take a walk – cause that’s allowed for exercise and it feels great!
Did you ever have a lumbago issue? No fun, I swear…
Did you already try the new Questbar flavor?
What is your favorite dinner dish?
