Today = dress, high heels and make-up a.k.a. back to work.
It felt good to be back at work and see my colleagues again. Do you also have the feeling that after a vacation you are ready for a fresh start, like at New Year’s for example? I always do.
One of the things I am going to do is turn of the laptop at 9 pm at the latest and do something else like reading or watching tv before going to bed.
I still want to reach goal weight. I’m going to try something different but before I tell you what I’m doing at the moment, I’m going to try it out for 2 weeks and see if it works for me.
My cook book collection (around 80 books). The past months I hardly used them. My “goal” is to use them as much as possible from now on. There are so many recipes in it that I haven’t made yet but want to try. When I use a recipe from one of the books I will mention it at the dinner photo.
As you know I haven’t been running all that much the past 3 weeks, wasn’t very motivated. In fact when I got up this morning to go for my run before work I had such a heavy headache that I decided to skip my run. Catch up on that run later this week. However when I was at work today I talked to a lot of colleagues and you know we will be running with a team in September. There has been a lot of talking about running today at work and it got me motivated again to continue my running schedule. This week is recovery week in my schedule meaning cut back in miles but next week it’s back to normal training and I actually look forward to it.
I did go to the gym after dinner for an interval workout on the stationary bike. I found a lot of interval cardio workouts for the cardio machines on the internet and made a workout book of it that I bring to the gym. Now I can do something different every time without getting bored. And this was actually the first time I wasn’t bored with cardio because of the interval. I did it for 30 minutes and after that did 8 minutes of abs exercises.
Friday, lunch date with R. I had bread (baked with the flower from the mill) with carpaccio. R. had bread with spicy chicken.
Monday: Cajun chicken breast (grilled) with rocket salad with red onion, oranges and a bit of olive oil (recipe from Ainsley Harriott – Low fat meals in minutes)
