Thursday Tunes…

Hi genies

I usually get hooked on some songs and listen to them over and over again until I get bored and look for some fresh tunes…and then it starts all over again 🙂 So here are the songs that I’m currently loving…presented to you by Ed Sheeran, Troye Sivan and Ella Henderson themselves!

Enjoy!

Breakfast

Breakfast


I changed my breakfast up a little today and I did NOT – I repeat – NOT have soy yoghurt, but greek yoghurt instead 😉 I drizzled some honey on top and added a handful of fresh blueberries!

Instead of coffee I made myself a cold “hot” chocolate by mixing some almond milk,raw cocoa powder, honey and a tiny bit of peanut butter…sooooo delicious…and I didn’t feel as bloated and uncomfortable as I usually do after having a chocolate-y drink.

Lunch

Lunch


For lunch I had this amazing salad! Spinach leaves, whole-wheat couscous, pomegranate seeds, red bell peppers and a balsamic vinaigrette on top – that’s all you need to make healthy taste sooo good.

Snack

As the afternoon went on I had to have a little snack and I opted for a juicy pink lady apple and a crisp bread with some peanut butter.

Dinner

In the evening we had some lovely chicken filets with lemon sauce and basmati rice.

Aaaand to end the day we all had a small portion of cut-up strawberries mixed with some lime juice and sugar…yumm 🙂

Miss Minty

Hi genies

I’ve just painted my nails this minty green colour called Miss Minty by Gosh and I really like it! It needed two coats to be this opaque and the only thing I don’t like about this product is the tiny little flimsy brush that it comes with. But you know, it works, so it’s all good 🙂

#PA Update: Month 8

Hi genies

This month hasn’t really been as successful as I’d hoped it would be. However, in the beginning of the month I participated in a 5K race along the beach (it was hooooot), I started doing some interval training, I worked my legs more than I have in a long time so that they were sore for a good couple of days after that workout, I rode my bike a lot, went on long evening walks…and then I just got a little…lazy…I’m not even really sure why.

What I can say, though, is that there have been loads of changes in my personal life so that has probably taken up more space than it should have but oh well, that’s life isn’t it? 🙂

Motivational-Fitness-Workout-Quotes-39_Fotor

So even though this month started out great, it didn’t end the best way. But that’s ok. Again, for personal health reasons I won’t be able to do a lot of cardio workouts next month either so I just really have to find a way to keep fit and not lose my shape in spite of that. It’s a challenge but no one ever said it was going to be easy and I guess sometimes it’s also nice to change things up a bit…it makes you think a little outside the box and makes you more creative. So just bring it on! 😉

Eatin’ Raw!

Hi genies
IMG_2189_Fotor

I went out to grab a meal at a raw vegan place yesterday (I’ve blogged about it before – HERE‘s the link) called 42°Raw. I love how good you feel after having eaten there – you definitely feel very full but it’s in no way uncomfortable. You just feel really satisfied and like all of the well-preserved nutrients in the food nourished your body 🙂

I went for a delicious lasagna – sans pasta, meat, dairy…YUMM!
