Super breakfast

Standard

This morning ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚ I also got a little delivery from MMsports which i want to show!!!
Have a lovely day ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

After school snacking

Standard

My favourite part of the day is coming home after a long day in school and being able to make myself a delicious snack!Today it was an extra long day and it had gone many hours since i had last eaten(not good). So i made myself a snack of home made rice pudding, quark mixed with vanilla yoghurt, raspberries, walnuts & 2 clementines!!! Delicious, filling and perfect!

Whats your favourite snack?

My day and afternoon snacking!

Standard

After breakfast i headed to the gym for a short but intense shoulder workout… i wasnt sure if i was going to go to the gym or not, but i felt i really wanted to!! So i headed there for 50 minutes and did a killer shoulder workout, afterwards my shoulders were aching so badly!! hahah, they will feel sore tomorrow ๐Ÿ™‚

I know alot of people have requested i write out my workouts so i will try do that. But i never plan or write down my workouts, i barely count reps or sets either… and dont always know the name of the exercise id o as i find new ones which i try and love. So i cant promise ill write out every workout i do, as i prefer to just do what i feel like and enjoy my workouts than to think about numbers, reps, weights, sets etc ๐Ÿ™‚

After my workout it was lunch and an hours studying followed by an hours nap… and then my afternoon snack: My favourite combo right now: quark, nuts & raisins. And now lots of packing and cleaning!!

P.s the pictures were taken this morning.. so they dont show how i look or feel right now, hahaha.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

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… ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

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,ย 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Today my mum wants to take me out for lunch and im definitely not complaining ๐Ÿ™‚ Free food? Why yes… thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

(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!)

 

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!)

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)
