What are you looking forward to this week?
I am looking forward to tomorrow morning already (Tuesday) when I will have a long morning for myself. The plans are to get up at a reasonable time, have breakfast while studying and then go for a run before my two afternoon classes. Apart from that I am looking forward to Wednesday evening when Emma will come here and cook again, and then Thursday when we are off school (yey). In the evening I will go to Emily's to celebrate Thanksgiving with her and her American friends. So much fun! I am also looking forward to Friday when I'm trying a new club with Jenny. Too long ago since I saw her.
Which is the latest blog you have started reading?
Honestly I am not the biggest blog reader. I have a few that I have been following for as long as I can remember which are: Blondinbella, Kenza, Andrea Hedenstedt and Fitspooration. These four are my favorites. Apart from them I follow Sofis Foodstories, Sandra Beijer, my sister, Janni Deler, Victoria Tornegren and Alexandra Bring.
Are you cooking any good food this week?
Maybe not I am, but on Wednesday Emma is going to prepare chantarelle toast for us mmmmhmmmm. And on Thursday when it's Thanksgiving I'm gonna bring something yummy vegan. These past three weekds I have realised that my body is very sensitive to "bad" foods since I almost never eat them. Candy is an example. Today I had some and felt sick for a couple of hours afterwards, like my stomach was not in balance. Same with cookies and chocolate.
Mention something you reallly want to do this week that you will put time aside to do.
I am getting into a really good workout flow. Since I've been back in Paris for almost three months I have worked out a little bit, but more because I feel like I have had to than for enjoying it. Now, however, I actually get this good feeling that people talk about that they get when/after they have worked out and it is so rewarding. It has also come to my mind that I am very (and then I mean VERY) stiff so stretching is essential for me and I am starting to really enjoy it.
What word do you want to set the spirit for this week?
Hmmm. Tough one. Since I am a fan of words there are several ones I could include here. I would actually, to gather them all in one, say mindfulness. I want to feel good and happy and in peace with myself as I have been doing the past few days. No stress about long to do lists, I just take my time and do everything that has to be done and then I can enjoy my free time.
What did you do last night?
Last night... Oh yes, I had dinner with Emma and Jeremy, the most delicious tomato/kidney bean/pasta/gnocci with roasted cashews and pistahios and other goodies. I am usually not the biggest fan of pasta but with this sauce it was amazing. Thanks Emma! Afterwards we worked until 4 in the morning in a club, gotta pay rent!
A pic that symbolizes this day:
Okay so here I should put a not very flattering photo of my tired self today that slept four hours tonight. I even slept two hours after school (who am I?), buuuuut I don't have that (a shame) so here is instead a much more beautiful one of my simple dinner tonight. Spinach, sweet potatoes in small cubes, roasted chick peas and some corn with a crisp bread with tomato. Yes, I love this kind of food if you haven't noticed. Enjoyed this in front of a movie with Jeremy.
What did you have for breakfast today?
Last year I was so bad at breakfast. I stayed in bed every morning until 15 minutes before I had to be out the door. Now I have new routines that I enjoy way more, which includes eating breakfast. I usually go for a bowl of musli or my favorite at the moment; crisp bread with tomato slices and salt and peppar. My stomach can barely stand coffee anymore so I usually drink tea or a glass of orange juice. This morning, though, I was in such a rush since I barely slept tonight after the club so I just had an apple on the tramway on my way to school.
What time in the morning do you wake up?
As I mentioned recently, I am NOT a morning person. I wish I was, but I am not. I have late night habits which contribute to my moody morning mode, you could say. I usually get up about one hour before I have to leave to school which can be everything between 7 and 9. In the weekends it depends, but when I don't go out I try to get up around ten. I am really against wasting half of the day in bed so I always try to drag my lazy ass out of bed even if I'm a bit tired.
How do you usually look every day?
In the week I normally don't put any make up. Recently I've worn my black "suit" pants quite a lot since I think they are chicer than normal skinny black jeans. I also like to wear simple dresses and skirts, it can really brighten up a grey day in my opinion. The jewelry is my Tara necklace since more than 5 (?) years and hoops (not too big though, don't wanna look like P. Diddy's girlfriend <- that one only Emma will understand sorry about that). When I go to school I am really lazy with my looks so my hair is usually just hanging freely if it's clean or in a pony tail if it's not super fresh or if it annoys me.
