It has been a busy week (but then again, when is it NOT a busy week ?) because I was in Istanbul for work. I left Tuesday, got back Thursday evening and am leaving this afternoon for the US. That left about 2,5 days and boy were they busy !
Even with travel, I did manage to exercise a little bit :
- Monday : tired !
- Tuesday: travel
- Wednesday : 6 km run in Istanbul along the Marmara sea
- Thursday : travel
- Friday : 9 km evening run
- Saturday : 40 minutes of upper body weights & ab work at the gym
- Sunday : 6, 7 km race
In addition to the exercise, the 2,5 days I was at home were jam packed :
Thursday evening I got back at 7:30 p.m. and had PTA from 8 to 11 p.m.
Friday I suffered through traffic to get to work early because I had early calls followed by meetings back to back. After work I did a ton of personal paperwork (taxes, school stuff, etc.) then went for my run. Did 3 loads of laundry. Cleaned the house (somewhat). Cooked (kind of). Started to pack for the US and watched a couple episodes of Downton Abbey.
On Saturday I got up really early because I am having my bathrooms retiled and the workers were coming at 8:15.
I then spent the rest of the morning cooking. I had a ton of fruits & veggies that had been on my counter for some time and didn’t want them to go to waste. As I knew no one would cook them while I was away, I spent a good 3 hours in the kitchen.
I had brought home apples from our country home a couple weeks back and they were just sitting there…. so I made applesauce, and loaded it with vanilla. It turned out great !
A big batch of roasted veggies, carrots & peppers.
Sweet potato patties from the 21 Day Sugar Detox Cook book. It is steam sweet potato, eggs, butter, a bit of gelatin and coconut flour. SO good !
My lunch plate looked like this :
We went out Saturday night for a friend’s house warming party, and I didn’t drink (much) or (over) eat because I was up at 6 this morning to get ready for my race… recap to follow.
How was your week ?
