it’s HUMP DAY!!!! And Hump Day means home office day!!!! As I am writing this I am sitting on my sofa with a cup of coffee and I am still wearing my pajamas. AMAZING :-) I have some admin stuff do do today but I won’t work too much. I had a busy last two days and the next two will be maniac. I have 10 interviews scheduled for the next two days. That’s crazy! I don’t know what I thought when arranging the appointments. At least they will pass quickly but I am not looking forward to the headache that will hit me anyway. But for today the sun is shining and I have an amazing day lying in front of me.
Anbother great thing about Hump Day? It’s WIAW!!! My favorite blogging day of the week. I love all your food posts! Thanks Jenn as always for hosting this!
As yesterday was so busy I was surprised that I only forgot to picture one snack. Great job ;-)
I am still struggeling to get enough protein but I am getting better. Yesterday was the first day I got enough calories and an almost optimal carbs, fat, protein ratio. YAY :-)
Last Saturday I was a little crazy and bought 3 pumpkins. Yesterday I started the week of pumpkin with my first aquisition: Butternut Squash. So Butternut Squash was included in pretty much every meal. So yummy!
I usually eat Breakfast in the car on my way to work. And I am totally fine with that. When I woke up yesterday I was ravenous! So I rummaged through my fridge and found a yummy looking fig which I covered with hazelnut butter. Heaven!
This soothed my hunger till Breakfast. I started the day right away with the pumpkin craze topping my oatmeal with some butternut squash and seasoning it with a holy lot of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. Some 4-nuts butter was included as well. And of course there was coffee.
I swallowed an unpictured chocolate lifebar in three bites between my interviews. My interviewees were inappropriately not in time. The 2nd one came 30 minutes early! Not very polite! Am I too touchy? I think showing up 30 minutes early is a no go. 5 minutes I am all up to it but 30 minutes? I didn’t even have a chance to have my usual cup of coffee. Lucky them I was in a good mood. Caffein deprivation makes me pretty mean!
In the afternoon I finally found some time to sit and breath and I had a protein snack consisting of egg white, cottage cheese and a few cups of nettle tea. It was really good to have a moment for myself. And I needed to re-hydrate after talking and listening for the whole day.
Gosh this was yummy!!!
My personal trainer is on vacation. Lucky her! So I went straight home and spend the entire evening food prepping. More butternut was included of course. I cooked this delicious casserole. I used leftover veggies, butternut and some homemade bolognese made of lean ground beef and tomato. I also used some cheese :-)
Now I will get up properly and start working. Maybe I will even find some time to do the laundry. Sounds fun? No rot really! But the laundry is pretty much mount everest like. And it grows….
Later on I will spend some time with all the other wonderful WIAW blogger :-) Tonight I will have soccer practice and maybe I can sneak in some abs and arms time as well. So needed!
How did you spend Hump Day?
