Hi everyone! First of all, sorry I’ve been so MIA from blog-world the last few days! I’ve been busy with school and my computer had some problems, but they are all fixed now! I have a bunch of homework to finish this weekend, but I also want to do some experimenting in the kitchen and maybe go shopping for some winter clothes because it is freezing where I live! What are your weekend plans?
This morning I hit the snooze button about 7 times. Apparently I was already in weekend-mode and woke up half an hour later than usual. It felt so good to get some extra sleep, though!
I wanted a quick breakfast so I topped a piece of crisp bread and toast with butter and honey, had some raspberries and a Activia yogurt on the side. Plus, a cup of green tea to wake me up! :)
Lunch today was warm and filling! I had some Rewe Feine Welt Noodles, some steamed spinach and a two egg white omelet with deli turkey meat and Swiss cheese.
Since it’s pretty chilly where I live, I was craving a warm and comforting dinner! I had a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup (I also added one egg white) with a slice of fresh whole wheat bread from a local bakery. Yum!
Some other recent eats include:
Two pieces of whole wheat toast topped with butter and one piece of crisp bread topped with butter and honey. Plus, a banana topped with cinnamon on the side.
Bowl of Greek yogurt, soy milk, peanuts, organic chocolate cereal, frozen raspberries and strawberries.
Two pieces of rye toast topped with butter with a bowl of strawberries, raspberries and a banana topped with cinnamon and peanut flour sauce on the side.
Not so pretty looking bowl of oatmeal (made with water and soy milk) with raspberries.
In my previous post I asked if some of you were interested in a foodie swap and got lots of comments from bloggers saying that they would love to do one! So, if you’d like to do a foodie swap with me, feel free to e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org OR go to my contact page for a fill out form) and we can work something out! :)
Today I was planning on doing a cardio and weights workout, but decided to have a rest day instead. I think my body really needed the rest! I used to feel “guilty” about having a rest day during my ED days. Now, I’ve realized that they only HELP my body recover and HELP me to perform better during my next workout.
Also, stay tuned because on Monday I’m announcing another giveaway! ;)
Why do you think its important to have a rest day? What are you most looing forward to this holiday season? Ever have days where you press the snooze button a few times for some extra sleep?
