This week I am a pretty tired and grumpy girl as work really is nagging on me! And my home office day was cancelled due to my workload. As long as I cannot give workshops by Skype there is no chance staying at home at the moment. Luckily Friday is officially off as we go to my husband’s graduation ceremony. Well he graduated almost 9 month ago but the university hosts the ceremony only once a year. One good thing? It’s WIAW! My favorite blogger day! Thanks Jenn as always for hosting this!
At the moment I find myself repeating the same meals over and over again. I do not mind though. Why should I try to make me eat things I am not craving when there are certain things on my mind I really do want to have? So here you see my latest food love:
Yesterday morning I overslept. This really never happens to me. Another sign for too much work? I am sure and I can’t wait for the things to calm down a little. Only one week to go! I hate to hurry in the morning but I had no choice. I swallowed my tea in 3 giant gulps and threw together some food for the day. As I am really bad at meal prepping lately I went the basic route. Luckily I always have breakfast in the car so I did not have to change much. I had a super good cinnamon oatmeal with pear. Absolutely delicious and a repeater lately!
My mid-morning snack remained uneaten as I was stuck in a meeting. So I had meal #2 for lunch. Sometimes the most simple things happen to be the best. I had a huge veggie plate with some cottage cheese as a side. I always love the crunch of fresh veggies. A couple of years ago I would have never considered this to be a proper meal but now I am happy and pretty filled.
I was giving two workshops in the afternoon an therefore didn’t have much time. Luckily I had an 1 hour break in between. As I knew supper would be very late that day I had prepared a huge mug cake dough. Of course my current favorite: Gingerbread Mug Cake
It was so very delicious! Unfortunately I had forgotten to add the applesauce so it didn’t turn out the usual fluffy way but taste didn’t suffer at all!
I had a not so nice work evening as one of my program members didn’t show up for the workshop and we waited until 9pm for him to come. I was so exhausted that I almost cried! Madness always triggers my tears – embarrassing! But I made a friendly face and told the other members that I would deal with it. I was worrying about the right strategy since the guy is a Professor. But this morning I had a really nice message from him in my inbox apologizing!
We came home 10pm and there was no time to cook anything decent. So we made a few quick sandwiches. They did the trick for me and I felt better immediately. Nothing better to calm down a whiney girl than giving her some yummy much-needed food! Sorry for the recycled pic but I was too exhausted to remember taking a photo.
For today I have two more workshops scheduled. That means after today there are only two more left! YAY!!!! Though I really enjoy working with people and getting to know my program members better I couldn’t keep up that workload. At the moment I am making a brave face and keep drinking coffee 😉
Happy Wednesday Bloggie friends!
