happy Thursday! Only one day to go until another weekend. Let’s start Thinking out loud! Thanks Amanda for hosting this link-up party 🙂If you want to learn more about the idea behind the link-up just click here
1. Just draw off inspiration
It’s only today and tomorrow and then I must have my presentation finished. What are my thoughts about this?
- My actual progress is not anywhere near my anticipated progress
- At the moment I actually don’t know what to present or how to fill 45 minutes
- If anybody asks me something significant I don’t know for sure I’ll know the answer
- I know that there are other people with only little progress but who cares about the others? I am responsible for getting the shit done.
- I am mildly freaking out but I’ve always been good at suppressing unpleasant feelings so I can still make a straight face and go to Crossfit
- Considering this I will have to stay at home tomorrow and appreciate the extra 2 h worktime I’d lose by commuting
2. Are you ready to make some noise?
Lately my annoyance had reached a new height. For the better part of the last two weeks there had been deconstruction work on the premises right before my office window again. To highlight the bloody details there was a machine throwing rocks in another machine which crushed these parts. Then the crushed parts were being transported over an assembly conveyer and piled up. You couldn’t bear to open a window though the oxygen level in our office was dangerously low. Pretty awesome working conditions 😛
3. I need you to scream, ’til your lungs get sore
Today is the last match of the preliminary round of the Soccer World Championship for Germany. And they are playing the USA today. It’s going to be an interesting game as in this group everything is possible! Most probably it’s going to be USA and Germany to make it to the last 16 but you never know this year! There’ ve been knocked out so many fantastic teams already that I wouldn’t be too shocked if Germany is being the next to pack their suitcases. Nevertheless we’re going to go to our good friends Chris and Dani today and watch the match together supporting Germany with a lot of screaming and shouting. And then we’re going to stay for celebrating into Chris’ birthday tomorrow. I am crossing my fingers for a nice reason to celebrate and Germany and the USA to make it to the lat 16!
4. I came, I saw, I conquered
I am right into my Whole30 now and so far I am VERY astound how easy and non restrictive the whole process feels. I am eating loads of fresh fruit, veggies, meat, eggs and nuts, drink a lot of water and feel pretty good. I feel tighter and leaner and I lost a little weight though I feel I visibly gained some muscles especially in my upper body. Maybe the combination of Whole30 and Crossfit finally does something good to my body. I am surely not going on a restrictive paleo style diet after the Whole30. I just love me my ice cream, cheese and white wine too much but I feel like I could conquer the world right now. Pretty damn good! This is for sure the motivation I need to complete those 30 days cheat free 😉
Is there anything greater than sucking out water out of a coconut directly with a straw? LOVE IT!
5. Now, can I get an encore, do you want more?
I am in a freakish good mood this morning. Maybe it’s because of the sun, maybe it’s because of going to Crossfit now though I am sore like hell from Thursday’s squats, maybe it’s because it’s only 11 days of work until the beginning of my holiday. Maybe it’s because I am having packed some fabulous eats and planned some nice hours with good friends. Maybe it’s because I had a holy lot of yummy coconut milk with my morning coffee and I can still taste coconut in my mouth. Maybe it’s because I listened to great music this morning that always cheers me up. Maybe it’s because I am writing a blog post at the moment what is frankly speaking one of the most satisfying things in my life I do just I do for myself. Maybe it’s because I know in only 8 h I will call it a day. Maybe it’s because though I am ranting a lot about my life I am pretty damn happy at the moment.
I am a moody person, you all know. But sometimes there are those moments that make you ridiculously happy. Save them, Appreciate them! Tomorrow is enough time for the next rant!
I think I just had an out-of-body experience! Did that happen to you before?
Now what are your mood boosters?
Okay guys I am ready for squatting now. No, just kidding. I’ll die for sure if we squat today!
Have a lovely day!
