A day ago, I told the girls in my office that sometimes, I carry around socks or underwear with me accidentally. Like, after laundry, they hide in the leg of my trousers without me noticing and all of a sudden fall out at the brim where my feet are. So yes, my undies fell on the floor in the office one day. At the very least they were washed. You might want to tell me that this happens to you as well.
That’s that. Welcome to WIAW.
Yesterday, I had breakfast at home. With the current circumstances I have to admit, that I have to MAKE myself eat. This is the rarest thing ever – me and my appetite are normally an unseparable merge, but as for now, it left me. I am not worried that it will be back soon. Therefore I try to make time to eat anyway – gotta fuel those guns, sorry.
Lately, I packed my breakfast again like I did back in the days when I went to the gym at 6am to save time. But yesterday I started off some work at home and took my time to cook an omelett and watch the sunrise. It felt like an award. (Not awkward, AWARD)
Mental note: Must give yourself more awards. It’s legit.
Alright FINE, it’s an ordinary Wednesday, let’s not get too corny here ok? We leave that part to my sweet blogger friend, Corny Cotter 😉
And since Wednesdays in boring lifes like mine means work, I cycled to the office shortly after 8am. Of course with my new dropdeadgorgeous bike.
Usually, I don’t survive a morning until lunchtime without some shoveling in between. Well maybe I would, but I am too lazy to try. Sometimes, the correlation between food and my mood is not hunger, but distraction. I just feel like I can forget the mess in my brain created by my work for a moment, when I shovel in some food. Ok, FOOD is not entirely true – I talk about a handful of nuts or a cracker. A bite.
I had a lunch date with a group of Ex-Co-Workers yesterday and we went to a little nice bakery-restaurant in the city. In opposition to what I said earlier, I was starving and when my plate arrived I couldn’t help but let escape primal sounds from my lips. It looked so good and it was just as magically delicious. It is SO rare that I eat vegeterian meals, but I seriously couldn’t complain about this baked potato with quark, salad and a crispy piece of garlic bread.
I went back to the office, got shit done and then cycled back home to fuel up for CrossFit Advanced at 7:30. It is tricky, cause normally by this time I am hungry again, but I don’t want to stuff myself before training. I guess you know that thing when you feel your dinner during your workout. It is no fun, right?
I still have pretty much all of my meals prepped – don’t ask me when it happens, probably at night half-asleep. But there is no better thing in crazy times than coming home to a fridge with prepped food. Oh, and Holy Shit, look at all that BOOZE!! WHERE the hell does this come from? Presents, I guess. I need to work on that decrease.
I went with chicken and Sweet Potatoes. The chicken was so dry I had to cough and I washed it down with so much water until it almost came out of my nose. That fact makes you go back to the first pic in this post.
Anyway. CrossFit Advanced was taught by Headcoach Ramon and he kicked our butts for 90 freaking minutes, obviously:Warm up: 5 burpees / 100m row / 20 Double Unders /10 Burpees / 200m row / 40 Double Unders / 15 Burpees / 300m row / 60 Double Unders / 20 Burpees / 400m row / 80 Double Unders Kettlebell Warm Up (12kg): 10 One-arm Swings / 10 Clean-Squats / 10 Snatches / 10 Windmills Olympic Lifting Skill Part: Split Jerk (4 sets of 3 reps) Strength Part: 4×5 Backsquat (40kg, 60kg, 65kg, 70kg) 4×5 Dumbell row on Bench Team of 2 WOD: 3 rounds of: 30 Deadlifts (70kg) / 20 Handstand PushUps or Kettlebell Push Press
I somehow made it home with my bike, kept on working while munching on something postworkout even though I wasn’t really hungry.
Questbar and an unpictured hardboiled egg was all I could stomach.
Have a fabulous day loves!
What do you eat before your workout?
What was today’s breakfast?
Do you tend to lose your appetite when youre stressed? I do. It’s rare, but when it happens, I know shit is near.
