"Trust The Awesomeness"
:v: Morning Workout
20 minute run
: good pace! You go, you.
+ 1 minute spring at the end
mandatory ab work:
10 knee-tucks x 7 sets
On the bars*

* I use my treadmill’s handles for this. I walk and then grab the handles and do knee-tucks ~ every 30 seconds.

Brunch
I had leftover moussaka from yesterday. It was cold but it was even tastier than the day before!
+ 3 blender waffles with powdered sugar and coconut juice

My current blender waffle recipe. Blend together:
2 cups almond milk, 1 tbsp ground flax seeds, 6 tbsps flour, 4 tbsps rolled oats, 5 dates, 1 tsp salt, 1 tbsp baking powder

Dinner
Improvised plant-based lasagna + grape juice

I had some lasagna sheets and I wanted to use them up. Plus, it’s Sunday and that's a great excuse to make something special. I made the mince using TVP and canned lentils and a ton of tomato sauce. The bechamel sauce was exactly the same as I used for the moussaka yesterday plus some nutritional yeast. Oh and I also had some Vegan cheese in the fridge so I layered that in too. It ended up being too salty but delicious nonetheless.

Looking at my meals today… :confused: I am seriously lacking in the veggie department. I’ll have to make up for it tomorrow!

:x: No evening workout
:v: 20 Minutes sauna

I am trying to do sauna at least 3 times a week (or every other day). It’s hard. I may have to start breaking it up with cold showers so I can do it longer. I sleep so well afterwards, though, it’s great.

This is the end of the day for me.
I hope you all had a great weekend! Hugs!

:loveu:

:v: Evening Workout

It’s been a long day. It's been a good day.

Overall I am happy with everything I managed to achieve today. I started working at 9AM and, apart from two breaks for food and the evening walk with my dogs, I pretty much worked until 8PM. I try to avoid working after dinner these days because my body started falling apart after 15 years of this kind of lifestyle... So now I go to bed early, listen to audiobooks, relax and generally schedule time off. I still don’t do weekends or holidays… but the kinder schedule is already mending me physically and mentally.

Here is a picture of Ollie chewing my fingers helping me today. No, he is not smarter than he looks. Yes, that’s a kitchen table.

I hope you all had a great Monday! See you tomorrow!

Huh, that sounds pretty familiar! Between insomnia and being slow to start (tasks / my day) but then tenacious, the overall vibe is to work until I am physically incapable of doing more. Or read, or game, or whatever it is I've sunk my teeth into that day.

Today, I finished my tasks and it's not even 7pm? What do I do with that. I don't understand.

It's been a while since I've seen your delicious foodstuffs... ah, and the other stuffs on your check-in thread... yeah, that matters, too... HAHAHA! Seriously, just wanted to stop in and say that I have noticed the void of your absence in my life.
