Hello loves! I hope this week is treating you well. It’s been a very crazy week for me so far with lots of exciting plans coming together. There is so much going on at the moment that it’s hard to keep up, but everything is heading in the right direction.
Well it’s that time of the week again, it’s time for WIAWof course! So I’m going to get started with the low down of Mondays activities, where I was working from home and having a very productive day with my thesis.
Three ginger tea to start my day!
I had to be up pretty early to get to my doctor’s appointment (nothing serious just routine) so I skipped my usual morning workout and got up extra early and got some work done. There was also time for a lovely and relaxed breakfast.
2 free range scrambled eggs with a chopped peaches and fresh blueberries.
I’m loving peaches and blueberries together at the moment, such an awesome combo! It was so nice to have a leisurely breakfast on a weekday for a change too, so much nicer to be able to taste and savor every mouthful rather than shoveling it in as quickly as possible.
After my appointment I got some more thesis editing done but worked up an appetite. Since I was at home I thought I would take advantage of my blender and whip up a smoothie.
Banana, orange, and blueberries make a delicious smoothie. I was surprised by how sweet this turned out with just the natural sugars in the fruit. It gave me a much needed boost as I was feeling quite tired by this point.
For lunch I had a calprese salad with mixed leaves, mozzarella, tomatoes, basil leaves, black pepper and a small drizzle of extra virgin olive with a toasted whole meal bagel topped with lots of sweet chilli hummus.
This was the yummiest lunch; working from home has so many benefits especially in the food stakes.
In the afternoon I decided to take a break and read some blogs as well as prepare an afternoon snack.
Fresh fruit and Greek yoghurt are always a winning pairing for me and I had a craving for it so I added some Greek yoghurt to a bowl of red grapes with some Honey Seeds, so good!
I soon got back to work and actually finished what I had planned out for the day earlier than expected…yay!!! It’s always a bonus to finish early, which meant I could get on with some other projects that I’m working on too, go me! Then I got ready and headed to the gym to do workout Afrom my plan.
Later on I made dinner and lucky enough I had some of the chilli that I made on Sunday evening leftover as I didn’t feel like cooking.
This chilli is based on my Healthy Chilli recipe, but I used soya mince instead. It worked out great and even Alfie liked it too. Another meal that we can both eat even with our different diet preferences, I think I will be cooking with soy mince a bit more so that we can enjoy more meals together. Mine was served with streamed spring greens whereas Alfie had his with rice.
The evening was just spent relaxing with a mug of my current favourite liquorice and mint tea and some of my Mini Peanut and Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies.
A great end to a very productive day!
I’m so lucky that I get to write my thesis at home, I love it. Having my creature comforts around me and working hard in my yoga pants or sweats. I honestly think that I get more work done at home too, as long as I’m working from my dining table and not on the sofa in front of the TV. Plus it means that I get more time to spend making delicious food, what’s not to love about working from home?!
Do you get more work done at home or in the office?
What’s the most amazing thing that you have eaten today?
