MONDAY – GOODBYE MY FRIEND(S)
Having to leave London and my friends behind on Monday wasn’t fun, but we spent such a lovely weekend together that I can’t complain at all. We went to cool restaurants, had riveting conversations and laughed more than my stomach muscles could handle.
If you want to read more about what happened during my stay there, make sure to check out these two posts here and here.
Sitting in the airplane back home I felt a little lighter and I thought to myself that having friends that can make you laugh this hard is truly wonderful! I can’t wait to plan the next weekend together and to see what crazy conversations we’ll have then…
TUESDAY – WHY OH WHY?
Why oh why did I have to arrange to have a personal training on the day after coming home from a lazy weekend in London?!?
Quiet obviously, I must have lost my mind! What was I thinking?!?
These were pretty much my thoughts once I realized that Dario, my personal trainer at The White Rabbit, was waiting for me on Tuesday evening for a workout session.
Don’t get me wrong, Dario is a super nice guy and our trainings are always fun, but I did not feel like I could muster the courage to face that type of training after having done nothing for the past 5 days.
A little hour on my friend the static bike would have been nice – you know, to get reacquainted – but apparently that wasn’t on my training plan.
So I headed to The White Rabbit with just a slither of motivation and got ready to face the always chipper Dario – well duh, he doesn’t have to do the exercise…
Joke aside, once we actually started with the training, my motivation came back and it turned out to be a great workout. Not that I did a great job – honestly, I was pretty bad – but once we got through all the exercises, I felt good. My mood was better and I felt much more energized – something I would never have thought would be the case after such an intense training. Although, this time around I didn’t have to do the bear and the crab – something that probably helped my good mood too…
I am starting to realize that my body craves the training and I can actually do much more than I thought possible. Who knew that I, the little couch potato, could start craving exercise?!?
WEDNESDAY – ?!?
Why is it that I never have anything interesting to tell you about Wednesdays?!? What’s wrong with that day?
Oh well, I’m anyways going to write novels for the other days, so you might actually be happy if I don’t write anything for today…oh wait, I had a date with Mr. Static Bike for an hour. That’s something, right?
THURSDAY – BREAKFAST ART
As I had to change my nutrition for my #ChloeGoesSummer challenge, I had to find a new alternative for my breakfast. I used to always eat a little bread for breakfast, something that now definitely doesn’t fit my dietary plan anymore. Therefore, I have started a while ago to create smoothies or smoothie bowls for my breakfast. This is a really simple way to have a yummy and healthy breakfast.
One of my favorite smoothie bowls that I make on a regular basis consist of:
- One banana
- A hand-full of frozen raspberries
- A bit of cold coconut water
FRIDAY – STRIKE A POSE
This Friday was a bit special. I generally only work until lunch time on Fridays, but this week, my boss and I had an important meeting to attend to in the afternoon. I work for a company that will be launching a new Fashion brand in September and we were looking for the perfect model to represent our products in our upcoming photoshoot.
Choosing a model is an interesting process and we definitely found a few beautiful women that could match our brand very well.
If you are curious about this new brand that will be launching soon, don’t worry, I’ll make sure to keep you posted about all the details as soon as I can. As soon as the first product shots are available, you’ll get the inside scoop!
I can just tell you that I love the products very much and working on launching a new fashion brand really is an extremely interesting and challenging job, which I am exceptionally glad to have.
SATURDAY – HOW BORING
This Saturday isn’t even worth mentioning. The weather was an absolute catastrophe and definitely not appropriate for a Saturday in July.
When I noticed it was raining cats and dogs, I decided to stay in bed much longer than necessary and the only thing that really got me out of this wonderful, cozy place, was the fact I had a training to go to.
I headed to The White Rabbit and just got there in time to perform two rounds on the milon training cycle before they closed for the day – perfect timing! At least it made me feel that I had achieved something in that day, which was actually quiet satisfying.
Unfortunately, all my friends had other plans, so I ended up having a chilled night at home – not a bad thing, but not really what I was feeling like doing. I realized that I actually wouldn’t mind going out – something that seems very strange for me as I haven’t been interested in going out for the past couple of years – I guess that’s what happens when you’re suddenly single again…
SUNDAY – THE SUN IS OUT!
Sunday really made up for Saturday. The sun was out, I had coffee with one of my best friends and went to see the match France – Iceland in a public viewing site in the city with another one of my best friends. Ah, what a treat!
This day finally felt like summer had arrived and I couldn’t have been more thrilled about it!
After this beautiful day, all that was left was to write this update. So here we go, this was week 8. Make sure to keep scrolling to see my physiological update…
CURRENT MOOD : Happy, euphoric, ecstatic! 7 kg!!! Wow!
