I swear, I have a life outside of the box. It takes place in the minority of time, but it does exist. Last week I was out THREE times and one night I had dinner at home in front of the TV. I felt extremely classy. And why on Earth do I eat out of Tupperwares when I am home.
Even yesterday I went out with my former longtime personal trainer to eat grilled scallops – I swear, it’s no big deal at all to eat clean if you get served a plate of grilled seafood. Bloggerfail-like, I forgot to take a shot. But I did when I went out for Sushi last week.
This was the first round of All-You-Can-Eat style. Sushi came later. I had to force down the primal sounds that urged to come out of my eagerly awaiting mouth. Since I was in male company, I felt like I should dig out my lady manners. I know them very well and you are allowed to believe that. Back in the days, Mom set our cat behind our lower backs so we would sit at the front of the chair in a straight upright position. On some days when she felt extra dictatorial, she clenched newspaper between our elbows and ribs during dinner. I was a happy kid, no worries here.
You see, we’re all into Thinking Out Loud style. Welcome and thank you Amanda!
Naomi from Skins was so kind to provide me with a pair of Skins tights a few weeks ago. Now being a CrossFitter and training 5-6 times a week with all the things like Powerlifting, Gymnastics and several accursed WOD’s, it is absolutely essential to have gear that fits. Seriously, I had my fair share of curse attacks when I felt like my boobs are about to jump out the lazy sportsbra or my pants which glided in all kinds of dangerous directions during backsquats. It’s NOT acceptable.
I must say – without curry favor with the trademark – these tights are simply perfect. They ARE tight by all means, but yes, they fit. Even around my well-grown quads and glutes. I chose the new A400 compression tight and I am extremely happy with my choice. I never wore a compression shirt and I don’t think I want to (hello flattened boobs that give you shortage of breath?!) – same paranoia goes with the compression bras. But the tights, hell YES!
Highly recommended. Check out their website. Naomi sent me the tights for free. All opinions are my own.
Now before I go, a little more of my social life – one of the three nights out last week was a birthday party at my Besties place – and almost the whole girls crew got together! Nothing better than that. The next day I took the time to make pancakes and now: PLEASE share your ideas as to where the HELL my pancake skill has gone. Besides that this mess looks like some kind of the most damn ugly food that ever graced the planet, it was – besides the fresh strawberries – an edible punishment. I clearly shouldn’t use expired protein powder to make pancakes in the future. I might as well eat cardboard or strawberry decorated pieces of rock.
WAIT. Look, this is how they normally look like AND they taste delicious. Just in case you and me forgot.
Ever heard of SKINS?
Do you wear compression gear while working out?
When was the last time you made pancakes? Alright, FINE – it looks like I should practise a little more often…..
