Last week I told you I would switch up my WIAW post and show you a different day instead. Unfortunately my Friday was really boring 😀 Nevertheless my food was really yummy. Happy WIAW and Thanks Jenn al always for hosting this link-up 🙂
At the moment I am sitting on my couch and I am sipping my first coffee of the day. As soon as I have published this post I will work on another survey for the law department of my university. We’re working on a study together and I have an appointment to show them the survey tomorrow morning. I still have a lot to catch up on but I am positive I will finish the work in the early afternoon. Fingers crossed 🙂 I have pushed through some great workouts these last few days and I am pretty sore. I love it 😀
But for now let’s look back on Friday…
I started the day with Amanda’s wonderful oatmeal cookie dough smoothie. This is one of those recipes where you can’t believe that you actually eat/drink something healthy. It’s so creamy and delicious! If you haven’t tried it I definitely recommend to go straight to your kitchen and make you one! And it’s so ver filling that I didn’t need a mid-morning snack.
So meal #2 was lunch. We made some great chili from ground beef, beans, corn and bell pepper earlier that week and these were the last leftovers. As a side I had a half sweetpotato with cheese. And just to let you know this was served on a dessert plate. Thanks to Arman I was made aware last week that plate sizes determine our perception of portion sizes and I really don’t want to mislead anyone here.
We hosted a workshop last Friday and so there were a lot more people around then on a usual Friday afternoon. I did not really work a lot. In between I had this lovely green raw protein bar which I had to divide and eat one piece at a time as it was so big and filling. I spend the rest of the afternoon chatting with my student assistant. She got accepted of a semester abroad at Bristol University. I am so happy and excited for her and I realized how much I would enjoy to spend some time abroad again.
As we had gone home early so the day before we had to stay unusually long for a Friday. I left the office around 5.30 pm. I picked up my hubby and we went food shopping. We had to get up on 6.30 am on Saturday for soccer practice so we had to do the food shopping on Friday. We bought a holy lot of greens, veggies and fruit and came up with a fantastic salad for dinner. I love huge salads like these. I topped mine with a holy lot of Guac and my husband took cheese instead. There were also artichokes and olives. Yum! We didn’t stay up long as we had to get up so early the next morning.
That sounds really lame for a Friday…
Talking about food always makes me hungry and I haven’t had breakfast yet! And I need another coffee! I wish us all a very productive day!
Happy Wednesday Bloggie friends!
