Good afternoon everyone! How are we? I hope you are doing well :)
Yesterday before I went to bed, I said to Matt, let's go for a jog tomorrow morning! But when he woke me up this morning, do you think I wanted to go? No, that's right, I didn't. I'm not a big fan of doing any sort of exercise before I've had breakfast actually, I feel like I can't perform if I don't have any food in my body. Are you the same? Anyway, after my breakfast I actually thought, no Caroline, you have nothing to do at the moment and there's nothing stopping you from getting outside, except yourself. So, said and done, I jumped in my trainers and went for a power walk/jog around Albert Park. It was actually a really beautiful morning to do this as the sun was shining and it was really hot. I mean look at this view! I'm so thankful that our flat is just around the corner from this beautiful park because it such a good spot to go running/walking or to just relax.
Are you also one of those people who has to listen to music when you're out running? I definitely am. I don't like hearing my exhausted breathing haha, it just makes me think of the fact that I'm doing something quite exhausting. If that makes sense :) When I came home I didn't want to eat lunch since we had planned to have a picknick so instead I had one of these Atkins bars. It was my friend Klara who recommended this one as it contains basically no sugar or carbs and still taste good. I've never been a fan of protein bars as I just think they all taste the same, no matter what the label says. "Salted caramel cookie dough" my ass! I'm sure you know what I mean. This is not an attempt to promote protein bars as proper food is always the best option but, if you're on the go or need some quick energy, these are pretty tasty.
Now I'm going to enjoy a cup of coffee and my home baked cinnamon buns that I made yesterday. Have a lovely afternoon!
