It’s 9 am Monday morning and I am already jazzed. My mind feels strangely disconnected from my body and if I had to describe my estimated cortisol levels the only words I can find are: sky-rocket!
Bla bla bal I know I should catch a breath and try to calm down bla bla bla stress is super toxic for me bla bla bla why not try yoga or meditate bla bla bla: shut up inner voice, ain’t nobody got time for that!
Not that I got this off my chest and finally shut up the inner (I do know reasonable) voice I get me a cup of coffee and allow me a few minutes of telling you what happened here the last few days.
Aaah that’s better! Coffee always makes me feel better! Though I am actually drinking a not so lovely flavor as I did buy new one but forgot it at home this morning 😮
Let’s start with something fun….
Last week was good! I went to the gym four times and I felt good after every single workout. Okay you know this kind of good when you wonder how you will ever be able to pull the rubber band from your ponytail or you need to wait to shower until your husband helps you out of your sports bra. And then when you finally feel the hot water on your skin you wonder how you will ever manage to wash you hair properly as shampooing with your arms over your head is absolutely out of the question.
But anyways, the weights were good, the times were good and I left the gym with a feeling of achievement rather than discontent. I have so many bruises on my forearms that I don’t dare to wear a t-shirt. No need to bring the poor hubby into bad repute 😛
All the chocolate again
I love to go to the shops and bulk-buy easter eggs with a 50% discount! This year I set my mind on stocking up on filled Milka eggs. You can bite off the chocolate cap and then spoon out the cream. My favorite ones are hazelnut flavored. I was clearly a bit excited and had to send visual proof of my prey to Stefan.
I was a bit overexcited to get my hands on them ever since I had a fabulous idea how to eat them. Slightly microwaved and spread on a slice of bread! Yes it was epic!
And because it’s the season of asparagus and because I nevertheless strive for balance in my life I made a batch of the lovely Asparagus Focaccia this Sunday! If this is balance I gladly take it <3
This time I didn’t use garlic for the marinade but my Wild Garlic Parmesan Pesto I posted last week and use for everything! What can I say? I am a garlic whore!
All the work
I am a super slacker and I reap the fruits of my labor right now. Means I am working all the time! Last Thursday I stayed in the office till 9 pm and on Sunday I worked from noon till 8 pm. I should be used to this. And considering how much I hate it I should have learned from it. But I didn’t and so I am left exactly where I am supposed to be: In a state of inner chaos where I desperately wish to be the post-office Alien from MIB2!
Ah yes and I even started to cancel meetings with friends I had arranged a few weeks back. Of course I was disappointed but at some point you have to come clear and set priorities. And it seems this was my point!
Now I am working till 4 pm and then I have 4 hours set for the data. Luckily the gym offers late classes tonight so I might even get the chance for a workout to close the day with.
Have a good start to the week!
