Happy Monday everyone!!
I thought I’d start the week off with a few pictures I managed to snap and a little summary of my weekend. I had Saturday off work this week which was nice. Although I did get in a great workout…I felt like the day was a bit of a flop, I started with great intentions including plans of getting some (lots) of house work done as well finishing 2 of the assignments I’m part way through.
I didn’t manage to achieve any of these things though :(, spending the morning watching Saturday morning cooking shows (until 11.30am!!) going to my boxing class at 12pm then running some errands at the retail park, I ended up spending a good few hours browsing the shops and by the time I got home I was feeling pretty tired. Somehow I managed to spend the rest of the day catching up on ‘Call the Midwife’…so all in all I didn’t really do anything productive and felt pretty fed up, annoyed with myself and guilty by bedtime!!
Sunday was slightly better, with a SUPER sweaty Step class early morning followed by work at Starbucks. I still didn’t manage to get any housework or studying done but at least I earned some money!!
Tomorrow however…is a brand new day! and a chance to get those things done (I hope!)
I did manage to have some lovely eats over the weekend…and take pictures (!!)…
Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday (yes it was that good!) – super creamy vanilla, cinamon, egg whipped oats with toasted pumpkin seeds and homemade peanut flax butter…yummy and really helped me power through both of my workouts.
p.s. recipe to follow tomorrow 🙂
Lunch on Sunday…this was one of best sandwiches I’ve had in a long time!! I’m not sure if it was because I was soo hungry after my Step class or it was just a great sandwich! -smoked ham, coleslaw, cheese…toasted – enough said!
Dinner on Saturday night – buckwheat ‘pasta’ with ham, leeks, peas and garlic cream cheese
A super easy dinner for when I finish work late like I did last night – pan seared salmon with crispy greens
I’ve also been dipping into my Nutribox for lots of snacks..I don’t think they’re going to last very long 🙂
Hopefully today I’ll manage check off lots more things on my ‘to do’ list!! I think I might head out this afternoon for a change of scenery in the hope of it encouraging me to focus on my assignments….maybe a nice coffee shop with good wifi!!
Questions; do you have problems focusing on work/studying/assignments if your deadline isn’t in the near future? have you got any techniques to help you focus?
