Happy Monday! Let’s start off with a big thank you to our hostess Katie:
I all honesty, I think it is ok to spend a Saturday morning/midday/afternoon/evening (you get it – all day) in the pj’s watching TV. At the age of 36 and while the sun’s shining outside. I think society would expect that I am a busy housewife, or a mother or business woman on a business trip. Nope. I behave like a lazy bachelorette in my 20ies. Which I am. At least the former.
Active weekends are overrated anyway. Baha, look – who’s – talking. But seriously – I was looking forward to this weekend at home all week – after all these crazy shenanigans past month I didn’t even remember how it is to be home alone and have some serious discussions with myself. Always a pleasure.
No reason to freak out – Mom was over and caught me with the camera while I was blogging.
And then she reminded me that I might want to sort out the ABNORMAL chaos I created during my busy week at home. Fair enough. You can usually tell the level of my stress by the way my apartment looks. And it really. Really. Really, really looked shocking – especially cause I started to change my linen and then stopped in the middle of this activity (cause something else crossed my mind – totally normal), means, my bedroom was covered with dirty linen, fresh linen, pillows, comforters and all the clothes I changed and left laying on the floor. The bathroom was laid-out with all kinds of cosmetics, water bottles and hair straightener. The entry was decorated with high heels (single ones – where the HECK is the second?!), sneakers and jackets laying in all corners. The kitchen – let’s not go there. I can’t even. I am SO annoyed I didn’t take a pic. Of the chaos, and of Mom’s face when she stepped in. Priceless. This was unique, even for me.
Anyway. I had some good, good training sessions this week. Wednesday morning 7 am – we did a Handstand Circuit which I LOVED – finally I could see that my almost daily handstand practise makes sense. And then we did this:
My reaction wasn’t this:
More like this:
Sorry Dino. Never personal. 🙂 We did the Handstand Push Ups with the band on the rack – I LOVED this! All of a sudden I could do assisted Handstand Push Ups. SO freaking cool.
Friday was Powerlifting. Best ever. We did Sumo Deadlifts and I managed 4 sets of 3x95kg (209,5lbs). Hmmyeah. Thank you Tom for believing in me 🙂
The filter is for you, Michi. 🙂
There are 2 rooms at our box that have the Zen – the little stretchingroom where I always do my mobility stuff, and the skillbox. As much as I love the main box which is huge and loud and fun and motivating – the quietness of those 2 smaller locations are the perfect contrast. It’s perfect to focus, to train awareness and to concentrate.
Girls night out! I met up with my crew – SO good to see them. We had a blast as always, my abs were sore the next day from laughing. It is known that my laughs are too loud, but the ones that happen with my family or close friends are unreal. Out of control. NOT normal. Maybe I should let someone video me next time, so you get an idea. Ok, maybe not.
We had GREAT food:
As mentioned, Saturday was spent at home, doing things and nothing. In my Pj’s and my scarf cause I am having a nasty cold. It was summer outside and I spent almost all day inside, cheering with my TV, staring at my iPad, having conversation with myself and going for short walks from the couch to the kitchen and back. Food, ya know.
At least I let the sunshine in….
And reading. Just be and read – perfect peace.
Oh, hey, wait, I went grocery shopping. Food, ya know. No worries, I changed clothes. Ok, that’s not entirely true, I just put on the jeans shorts over my pj shorts. Top stayed the same. #itsokbelieveme #evenifididntwearabra #itsok
And this beauty:
Acorn Squash. Will make its way into the oven soon sprinkled with ridiculous piles of cinnamon and eaten warm with chocolate dip.
May I introduce you to my new best friend? I decided to transfer my racing bike to an almost every-day life-bike. I changed up the clicks and VOILÀ! Ok, for the master transports I sometimes have to absolve, I switch to my old one, but this one is perfect to race to Crossfit and home.
I also got a new mirror for my dressing room.
Means, a new place to feed my selfie obsession.
Sunday morning I felt much better after a good night of sleep and was off to a glorious trailrun in the morning sun. Oh bliss.
Oats, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, 2 eggs, 4 eggwhites. BAM.
Rest of Sunday was spent sunbathing on the balcony, meal prepping, joining a Crossfit Class and doing some Open Gym strength. All in all, I did about 80 reps of barbell push presses. Holy shit.
Oh, and eating a huge dinner after all these mad workouts. It’s summer, and I am eating roasted brussel sprouts. What the fuck. I love them.
Plus tea and dessert.
PJ’s all day, yay or nay? (I am a rhyme genius)
Favorite way to eat eggs?
