Happy Wednesday and happy WIAW! Only one more day to go until we enjoy a lovely long Easter Weekend!
Two days after my first Half-Marathon I am almost back to normal! My legs are neither stiff nor hurt with any movement anymore. I’ve had a fantastic weekend in Vienna with loads of great food. I enjoyed pizza and burger, ice cream and coffee, we ate falafel at an oriental restaurant and had a lovely fresh pressed juice. Pure bliss!
So back at home yesterday my food rut was totally out-of-place. But I’ve learned a lot about and from my body over the last 12 weeks so I just drifted with the flow 😉 Many thanks to lovely Jenn, for hosting this fantastic link-up!
After a weekend off with no time for food shopping we had almost nothing left at home. Luckily we are usually well prepared aka have some chili in the freezer. So I had packed some chili and sweetpotato for lunch. When I arrived at the office I couldn’t warm myself to the idea of breakfast food and so I followed my cravings and started the day with my lunch 🙂
I had a morning appointment for which I had to drive to the main campus. After the meeting I went to an office supplier and bought a new filing system for my desk. Finally my desk looks tidy now. A huge win for my peace of mind. I had a nice chat with my assistant over a cup of coffee and then after a while I was hungry again. Time for my breakfast food! I had a bowl of Tibetan Chulfi, a porridge made of barley, tigernut and dates with some soy yoghurt and strawberries. Very yummy and very filling!
I cleaned the office and got through some paperwork in the afternoon and somewhere in between I managed to find some time of this lovely! Soy yoghurt with cacao and agave syrup topped with the leftover strawberries. I like pretty food 🙂
I had an inner debate all day long about weather to go to my Power Plate Workout or not. In the afternoon I decided that I could go. So after work we headed back to our hometown and quickly went to the grocery store to stock up on some essentials. Then I dropped Stefan off at our Soccer Club where he had to attend a coach’s meeting and I went to my gym. After my workout which went pretty smooth considering the state of my legs I stopped by my Mum for a quick visit. Later at home I craved cheese so much that I ditched my dinner plans and fried some Quesadillas for us!
This day went different to my original plans but nevertheless turned out totally right for me. So again a nice lesson in “Listening to your Body 101”
Today I have to stay at home as a carpenter is coming over to have a look at out leaking windows. Tonight I have soccer practice and I can’t say that I am not looking forward to move again. A little running and stretching will do me great!
Any ideas why cold lunch is such a great breakfast sometimes?
What do you do when your body craves different food than you have prepared or planned for the day?
Happy Wednesday Bloggie friends! Have a great day! 🙂
