We had a guest (my stepson G) over the weekend, and I felt too awkward taking pictures of my food, so this time you’ll get to see what I ate on Monday, a typical day at the office.
Typical breakfast sandwiches, one with tofurky slices, the other one with peanut butter and strawberry preserves, packed in my favorite blue sandwich box.
Side note: Every Sunday night I make some sandwiches for my husband to take to work on Monday morning (he leaves at 5am!). I use a red box for his food, so we don’t mix them up.
Thank goodness we have a working microwave at work again! Last week I had to eat most of my lunches cold, which gets pretty boring after a while. Anyway, I had packed some leftovers for lunch: mixed vegetables (mushrooms, broccoli, bell pepper), marinated and pan-fried tofu, white rice, black soy beans, roasted sesame seeds. You could call it bento!
Dinner was even more leftovers. Somehow I made way too much food over the weekend. I had spaghetti, homemade marinara with zucchini and mushrooms, and topped it with nutritional yeast and arugula.
Dessert of the day were a few cranberry brownie bites. They came out a little crumbly but incredibly delicious. I love cranberries! Unfortunately, I can’t give you the recipe, as I got it from a book. (You can find the recipe here, but it’s in German!)
If you’ve been reading my blog for a little while, you know that I hate strength training. I know it’s important for my health and general fitness, but it’s just so boring. So I’m trying something new this month: Blogilates! Lovely Cassie has posted lots of Pilates videos, and even offers a monthly workout calendar. She recommends doing a mix of cardio and Pilates moves for 60 minutes total, six days a week. For me, that’s too much! There’s no way I can fit in six hours of exercise into my crazy-busy schedule at the moment. But, I try to do as much as I can, adjusting the plan to my own needs.
When it comes to working out, I love having a detailed plan, so I don’t need to think about what I should do next. Some of the moves in the videos are really tough, so I had to modify them, but so far I really enjoy this new plan.
You can find all of the videos, workout calendars, meal plans, and much more on Blogilates.com.
Have you ever tried Pilates or online workout videos?
