It’s been a while!
I’m going to re-publish all of my posts some day soon, but I felt the need to update here quickly that I’m officially back. In my last post I mentioned an upcoming trial, which is now over. I’m waiting for the outcome of that, and should get it by email within a week. The trial was such a life draining, traumatising experience and I truly hope to never find myself in that situation again. I guess I put myself there by having kids with the wrong man... 🙄 But I’m oh so happy they’ll be adults soon and they can decide themselves where they want to spend their time and when.
Meanwhile, I’ve been...
...on a funeral, because my grandmother passed away. Missing her.
...celebrated Christmas, new year and my birthday. Don’t ask me how we all did it because I’m old and I barely remember anymore.
...trying to diet! Trying!
...Decided to continue on being a stay at home mom for 8 more months at least!
...watched from beside while the hubby first got into aquariums and then ducks and the chickens and now we’re soon getting all of them!
...eating all the proteins. Every day, all day!
Pictures from my birthday. Such a lovely day.
As you noticed it’s been a lot about working out and eating correctly for me lately. The working out part is fine, it’s going ok and I feel that I’m a lot stronger. The eating part... Not so much. I’m still a chocolate addict and my food scheme is stuffed with protein, mostly soy protein, and almost none of what I’m usually eating. I’ve left out bread entirely, matcha lattes, golden milk, less vegetables, a whole lot more soy protein and preferably two big protein shakes every day but I can barely do one so that’s what I’m doing. I feel like I’m shovelling all the proteins and there isn’t room for anything else 😅
I understand that this is what I need to do in order to build muscles (that I didn’t have before this) but I’m really suffering 😅 it’s hard to eat this much proteins. Even if I know that my body needs them, it’s hard, because I’m stuffed all the time.
I’m seeing results. I’m a lot stronger in every part of my body. The hubby said my belly shrunk quite quickly and my legs are a different shape now. So I’m gonna keep going for 4 more weeks! 💪 after that my programme is over, but I’m definitely gonna keep on working out at home! I’ll see if I continue on the working out programme and leave the food part in the future.
I mean I love food. I breathe and live food. Food is my passion. So to have a ready scheme that says soy protein and rice... When I’m craving beetroot dahl with fresh parsley, is hard. I miss flavour and texture! I know people who are training seriously see food as fuel mostly and eat chicken without salt just to feed their muscles but a foodaholic like me don’t work like that. I can’t wait to cook again! But the working out part I’m not giving up. We’ll see how it goes when I’m back on my normal diet! :)
Babes lately. Soon it’s my oldest son’s birthday, he’s turning fifteen! Jikes! And Ines is turning four. So far teenagers are fun. Nice people to hang out with, all three of them. They’re still my kids, but they’re also my best friends it feels like. I truly hope for it to stay that way!
The next good thing in our lives: the local slopes are opening on Tuesday! ⛷
