Good morning and happy first day of the week! If it’s not so happy, listen to this song……
It is such stunning weather here – we are truly blessed!! It’s marvelous.
My weekend started with a 10k run on Friday at 7am followed by a Yoga Class at Spirit-Studio. I was good with Yoga this week and my body thanked me! AND it was way too long since I went running outdoors for more than 30 minutes.
The views on the run were simply breathtaking.
After this ‘move-morning’ I fueled with a green smoothie (spinach, berries, coconut flour, protein powder)…....and then went over to Mom’s place to have my nails done. I don’t know if I mentioned it, but my Mom lives just next door – we can actually wave and yell at each other over our balconies. I think it’s supercool. She now bought a Shellac Set and we sit together every other week to do our nails. It’s perfect for me cause my nails are a mess otherwise. I went to snap some gorgeous pics outside…. …..and in the evening met up with Linda and her little sweetheart in the parc for a picnic. Saturday was a liiiiiittle difficult – but only a little. I had nothing planned and switched from being relaxed and happy about it to a little panicked that I could fall into a depression and loneliness.
BUT I did good. I took a restday, slept in, stayed in bed with my book and iPad until I was about to chew my arm off, and stayed in my pj’s until midday despite the gorgeous weather outside. Yes, I am allowed to do that. My food was all over the place though – I did not binge or anything, but I snacked along all day on clean and not so clean stuff. I felt guilty and fat, but I just distracted myself with other things. Like baking. I had an invitation for dinner in the evening and decided to provide dessert. Since months I wanted to make Amanda’s Flourless Chocolate Chip Almond Butter Muffins. Cause I do not own a regular muffin pan, I just made them as a cake. GEEEEEZE. When this piece came out of the oven, I surely had to taste test……omg. No words. SO delicious. I literally had to drag myself away from it to not eat the whole thing in one sitting. I was invited at my Bestie’s and her husband’s place together with 3 other friends and it was just a happy relaxed night with prosecco and good food. They whipped up an amazing dinner:
SUNDAY…..like last week, I had a workout date with Vanessa at 10am – 8k run and double unders / handstand practise in the street. I LOVE it. I added a small WOD after – 15 pushups, 40 lunges (20 per side), 1 min jump rope, 500m sprint – 3 rounds. I was so excited about my handstand progress I had to head inside and take handstand selfies. Yes, I am allowed to do that.
I made Sweet Potato Eggwhite Chicken Patties and more of the Coconut Berry Oatmeal Bake. This time I tripled the amount and made a real cake.
That’s my weekend recap – happy Monday everyone!
Did you do some mealprep this weekend?
Do you feel guilty when hanging around the majority of the day without being productive? I used to. Not anymore. I think I’m too old to stress around all day anyway 🙂
What’s on the workout plan this week?
