Super breakfast

Standard

This morning Β i managed to make a super delicious breakfast!! A normal and simple breakfast i.e quark, raspberries and almonds but i also added Green valley Ranch chocolate sauce to it!! Delicious, though i do admit maybe a little too sweet for breakfast!! But delicious nonetheless!

Today its school and im hoping to have time for a shoulder workout!!! Ive changed my workout plan a little and im going to see if it gives any affect… i will try write about the change once i get a chance πŸ™‚ I also got a little delivery from MMsports which i want to show!!!
Have a lovely day πŸ™‚

 

 

 

Birthday brunch

Standard

Hello πŸ™‚

Today is my birthday *woop!* *woop!* so i have spent it doing my favourite things – working out and brunch with my family!!!

It was leg day today – and im hoping that i will feel it tomorrow. I had cake as pre workout, so the energy was definitely there πŸ™‚ And after leg day all you want is food, so that is exactly what i got πŸ™‚

There was so much yumminess at the brunch i ate – LOTS of fresh bread, salmon, watermelon, yoghurt, coffee etc etc

 

Morning run & breakfast

Standard

Recently ive gotten my running motivation back and it feels like all i want to do is to run…. But because of my busy weekday schedule its hard to find time. But its about making time for the things you love. So i woke up a little earlier than usual on a weekend and drank some coffee and BCAAs and ate an apple and some raisins and then i went out for a run, I wasnt sure how far i would run…. a 5km, 10km, 7km etc… but i just kept running (with a break half way to do some stair intervals i.e run up really fast, jog down and then repeat how many times i like). My run finished at 6.6km and feeling energised and tired at the same time! My stomach was rumbling for a proper breakfast πŸ™‚

Today my breakfast was: chocolate egg cake & raspberries, quark, nuts, raspberries, an egg and my favourite celsius!!

My favourite combination right now: chocolate egg cake, quark, raspberries, nuts, an egg and a celsius πŸ™‚

Today im going to pack, clean and study as i have lots of tests coming up in the next 2 weeks and also….im moving house on Monday (and not to mention, its my birthday tomorrow!!!!) πŸ™‚

Chocolate breakfast

Standard

Its Friday today, meaning one day closer to the weekend and even one day closer to my birthday – Oh my gosh!!! Β For my birthday im planning to go for brunch and i cant wait…. brunch has to be the best food πŸ™‚ Waffles, eggs, fruit, yoghurt,chicken, freshly baked bread, lots and lots of coffee…. what could go wrong? πŸ™‚

Anyway, i had a dream breakfast today (as usual!), egg white chocolate oatmeal, rice pudding, raspberries and egg and coffee!! This is the perfect way to load up for my workout in a few hours…. im thinking deadlifts and some biceps and triceps πŸ™‚ I want to do legs though, but i need to wait another day πŸ˜‰

Are you working out today? πŸ™‚

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day

Standard

i am going to be a typical Swede, and start this post with Weather talk πŸ™‚Β Hahah. Yes.. i am the type of person who, if i am in an awkeward silence with someone i will begin talking about the weather πŸ™‚

But anyway, recently it has been around 10-15 degrees during the day i.e not so cold!! (But its getting colder from now on… 😦 )

But it means that the mornings have the perfect walking temperature. Its not so cold that your sweat freezes on your skin and you walk like an icicle, but its not so hot that you are sweating so much you just want to take off all your clothes and go lie down somewhere.

But its a good mix of, if you put on some dry fit clothes and a warmer – but light jacket, then you dont freeze and you dont overheat either ;);)

Hhahaha… all my years of morning walks ive finally learnt how to dress properly!!

 

 

 

 

When i came home it was time for breakfast and i must say,Β it was better than usual!!!

 

Yoghurt and quark & nuts, 2 boiled eggs, ginger flavoured cashews and coconut. (The 60g packet was easily eaten, they are sooo good. And whats better is that its all organic :)) & a Raspberry and Lemon Kombucha!!

I am going to write a review about both the nuts and the Kombucha πŸ™‚

 

Today my mum wants to take me out for lunch and im definitely not complaining πŸ™‚ Free food? Why yes… thank you πŸ™‚

Im hoping we can go to the vegetarian buffet so that i can eat as much as i want and not just be limited by the small portion i would get at a normal restaurant πŸ™‚

(And p.s… just because im going out to eat DOESNT mean i eat less ;);) Its not about compensating!)

 

Taking probiotics, not stressing and a little change in my diet = back to no bloating (unless i eat a big meal which is basically 6 times per day… but the bloating is pretty much gone and the pain!! Woop woop!)

 

Morning walk and breakfast

Standard

Started my day with a 6,5km morning walk (drinking coffee and bcaas before) and then breakfast afterwards. This is just a personal preferance of mine, as i dont like walking after breakfast. So i walk before πŸ™‚ But you get the same benefit no matter what time you walk!

Brekfast this morning was egg white oatmeal, cottage cheese, an apple, (and also milk), a questbar anda Β celsius!! (Loading up for a back workout, not sure how its going to go today… or if i even do strength training. Ill just wait and see how i feel :))

Ive also been asked how many calories i eat in a day and how much i burn off through exercise. 1)I dont count calories and 2)I dont think of exercise as burning off calories. Its not aΒ Plus/MinusΒ  thing for me. I am neither trying to gain weight or lose weight… i just want to keep gettting stronger. Feel i have energy and that i love what im doing, which i do. I do the workouts i have energy for and i eat what im craving… there is not so much more to it. Somedays i might eat 3500kcal, other days 1800… i dont really know. It doesnt make so much difference to me!! Food is energy, not numbers.

 

Sunday breakfast

Standard

Today is another study day and rest day. But its important to fuel yourself even if you arent exercising. So todays breakfast was a delicious egg cake with yoghurt, raspberries and nuts. 2 eggs and a coffee (and a short while later 2 handfuls of raisins and nuts…. Because i need study snacks!)

Fruit salad for breakfast

Standard

A favourite breakfast of mine recently is fruit salad. It gives me so much energy and keeps me full for a long time as well…. though i love oatmeal, quark or my sweet egg cake as well and they are all filling and give me energy. So each morning its hard to decide what to eat!!!

But when i feel i want to eat more natural – and not something warm, then fruit salad is the best!!! (At times my stomach can find it hard to digest so much lactose or egg, so then having other delicious alternatives is good!)

Breakfast: apple, orange, small pear, raspberries. quark, nuts… and more nuts πŸ™‚ & an egg and coffee (my standard!)

 

 

^^Realised that i wanted more than cashews πŸ™‚

 

Whats your favourite breakfast?

Night snacking – pancakes and casein

Standard

Tonights night snack was oatmeal pancakes, strawberry casein from MMsports, strawberries, cottage cheese, walnuts and tea!!! Delicious, though all that was missing was chocolate (would have made the meal a 10/10.. instead of an 8/10)

 

 

 

Morning walk and breakfast

Standard

To start off my weekend i did one of my favourite things which is a morning walk! I prefer to do mine before breakfast, because after breakfst i just want to sit and work on the computer! Whether you walk before or after breakfast or in the morning or evening doesnt make so much difference – so do what you prefer best πŸ™‚

Ive jsut eaten breakfast now, and soon its time for leg day!! *woop* *Woop*

Are you working out today? πŸ™‚
