You requested, I deserve. Here is ‘A day in my life-style’ – WIAW. Be prepared. It was a LONG day.
Big probs to Jen for hosting!
So. I present you past Friday. Friday is my day off when I can do whatever the fuck I please. Since I have a cleaning lady, I don’t even need to clean. #spoiledbratt I actually thought this Friday is going to be the most boring day in a long time, cause besides of 2 classes (CrossFit and Powerlifting) I had no plans whatsoever. WRONG.But wait.
I got up early enough to stretch and fuel for CrossFit class at 9am.
Below pic: don’t get this wrong – it is a super fake smile. I love to do my workouts in the morning, but I still always curse on my alarm clock for waking me up and forcing me to leave my favorite place – my bed. I crawl out and think ‘omg I can not wait until I am back here.’ And I ALWAYS swear I will be taking an afternoon nap or go to bed REALLY early. Both never happens.
If you are looking for a mindful eater, don’t watch me. I ALWAYS eat with distractions. Sorry, but I just feel damn weird if I sit in silence, staring at the wall and talking to a chair when I have my meal. So having breakfast is done with a side of emails. Good role model, I know.
Dino tortured us through a rowing/bodyweight warm up, strength part with floor press (58kg! Yeah!), double kettlebell swings and dumbbell rows. And this WOD.
My energy was UP and I practised more Double Under’s……25 unbroken and a fail of course. I did the 30 in the WOD! Getting better at it. But hell, legs. Stay straight!!
Now don’t ask me how THIS happened. Döne started dancing next to me and we decided to partner up. Nope, we didn’t drink. Poor Dino (coach) was slightly irritated. I can’t blame him. Did I mention I don’t take any caffeine either? Now imagine I’d drink coffee or green tea. That’d be scary. No one wants that.
After class I was JUST about swinging on my bike, when I got a message from Michael (coach) if I join him on a road trip to Fribourg (french part of Switzerland) to see the showroom of Reebok and make orders for the box. Don’t let yourself be fooled. All he wanted was someone to drive and pay for the gas. And maybe provides some silliness on the way. For me, it was a second of a second thought and then I went for it. I mean – a spontaneous road trip (I LOVE), and shopping the new CrossFit Reebok collection??!! Hell yeah. Screams a little adventure. Always up for these kind of things.
Let’s see. It was 10:30 am, I was unshowered, unfueled and I had some stuff to do at the office before we leave. So I cycled to the office in my bummy-outfit, fixed the things that needed to, took a fake shower, cycled back and off we went. Spontaneity at its best and how I love it. My lunch:
Oh, and just so you know how I walked around all day. OBVIOUSLY I didn’t dress up for a meeting with Reebok. I look like a makeupless homeless and Nike is the only brand there is.
It’s good that Michael and I share a same wavelength even though he misses out on 14 years of experience of life compared to me. Alright FINE, he is married and has a son, so he has this area covered, but no kidding. I wouldn’t go on a road trip like this with a humorless and dead boring person, and we definitely had a few good laughs.
Quick story regarding the car. It’s Ramon’s car (Chief CrossFit). I am still amazed by his trust and letting me drive without a doubt (many doubts I guess) . So. I had to drive backwards out the box and I might have been a little nervous. When I tried to brake, I accidentally hit the horn and at the same time the wiper went off by itself at the highest level (of course not on its own, but I didn’t realize I turned it). Ramon shook with laughter. Blondie in his car – it.was.THE.SHOW. Holy shit.
Back to the road trip. After almost 2 hours we arrived.
My second lunch: (I might mention, I had planned out a perfect meal-day and everything was nicely prepared. But yeah, life gives a shit about plans.)
Plus 2 beef jerky sticks. Oh damn.
We discussed with the Reebok man, talked and ordered. And then made our way home which got us completely into traffic. Detours after detours. More silly talks, curses from my side (Michi couldn’t believe my swearing. I know it’s horrible, but I can not help it. Bad drivers, STAY HOME DAMMIT!) and the whole music repertoire of Michi’s phone (Danish rap, anyone?! It’s pretty awesome, I swear.)
Plus a WOD:
Kettlebell walk (I am still SO irritated as to why the HELL I had to carry two 32kg kettlebells and the guys got the 15kg plates. #WTF)
10 x Plate-Floor-to-Overhead
KB Walk (Ugh.)
10 x Plate-Russian-Twists
KB Walk (I hate you, Michi)
10 x Plate-Sit-Ups
KB Walk (What the fuck is this, seriously)
10 x 32kg KB Swings
KB Walk (Anyone who talks to me, STFU)
10 x 32kg KB walking lunges
And then I cycled home. Still in the same clothes and unshowered. Sexay.
Oh my lawwwd. I came home with a I-don’t-even-know-what-I-want-to-do-first kind of problem, and ran around like a chicken with the head cut off. Cause I was A) starving like hell B) smelling (sorry) C) shortly before collapsing from low sugar and tiredness (I forgot to mention that I slept only 6 hours the night before) D) my apartment once again was drowned in chaos.
I showered. And put on fresh clothes. Still shabby, but SO nice to be home and fresh.
I am very well aware that there is a laundry chaos behind me. It stayed there for about 4 days. #fail
I feel the urge to let you know that there are days in my life when I actually wear proper clothes instead of workout clothes and sweatpants. And when my hair isn’t a mess.
1st course: Eggwhite Frittata Omelette with Sweet Potato
2nd course: Steamed Chicken with salad and peppers, kabocha on the side
3rd course: Cacao Quark and Almond Butter
Post-dinner was spent collapsed on the couch with multitasking on several technology channels plus TV. #addicted.
Ok guys. This is NOT a normal day of my life. Especially food-wise. I swear, I normally eat regular, clean meals 🙂 But then again, it totally illustrates my life – on the go, fun, irritating, silly, a little chaotic, spontaneous, active, crazy and lazy. My perfect mix. And believe it or not – I feel totally balanced in this jungle.
Do you eat mindful/without distractions?
Do you love road trips?
What do you like to eat on the go?
