Yesterday I lunged lady before our training, as lately she has too much energy ;) Fortunately it helped and the ride was amazing. We managed to practice our new dressage program, which (as it turned out yesterday) is quite challenging for us. Hopefully we’ll work out all problems during winter :)

My today’s meal - fish and chickpea curry with tomatoes :) I mixed few recipes (because of lack of some ingredients :p) but the effect is delicious :)
Our last hospital visit was a little different as Maja accompanied us :) We had few nice conversation with patients. The most interesting took place on the seventh floor - we met an elder man who brought up the subject of Second World War and gave us a few historical facts :)
As i said, gaining muscles is now my goal. My weight wasn't stable during holidays and now I really need to pay attention to what I eat, especially as my appetite is not always present :( But good meals are an answer to this problem! Here you can see one of my high protein dinners - green beans, red rice and chicken breast in herbs.
As I mentioned before, my health issues made me really out of shape. I never thought that you can lose your muscles that easily! Yesterdays training, a casual 5 km run that normally wouldn't be a challenge for me was really exhausting. Today I woke up with muscles sores, which just doesn't happen! I hope I will find time to exercise and go back to the shape that I've had.
Yesterday I and Zuzia went to the hospital for the first time during this semester. Unfortunately we were quite short on time so we spent there only 1,5 hour. Still, it was really nice to recall those corridors and see smiles on patients faces :) we talked with few people, helped with dishes and cleaning. I missed it!
As I was having some health issues during holidays, now I need to really pay attention to what I put into my meals. That's why my yesterdays meal prep included green beans cooked in tomatoes, high protein feta cheese and barley. Yum! :) I recently started to add a bit of cinnamon to everything that I do with tomatoes - and trust me, I know how weird it sounds but it upgrades the dish to the whole new level. Just try this tip on your next shashuka/tomato soup/sauce :)
Due to some unexpected events and problems (ahh, mares and their hormones :p) I wasn't riding for almost whole august. You can imagine how weird it felt to finally sit in saddle on Saturday! I have a feeling that my training looked more like a comedy than a real work, but that's what breaks do :P now we need to get back to shape and prepare for next competition - final of Polish Championship in baborowko!
Yesterday's trip to the hospital was one of the nicest visits ever. We spent there almost three hours, just walking through corridors and rooms, talking with people. We met two elder, lonely ladies whose families didn't manage to visit them. It was clear to see that our conversations gave them a lot :)
