For those of you in the UK, wasn’t the weather glorious today?
I woke up to beautiful, bright sunshine shining through my window, which is no mean feat considering there is a huge building opposite my flat.
How could I not feel good when the sky was as clear as this:
Today, for the first time in months, I went to the gym on a Sunday. And it felt so good, I was so pleased with myself. The gym on a Sunday is actually really nice, it’s fairly empty and lots of the people in there aren’t students. I managed 3o minutes on the stationary bike, 15 minutes on the elliptical and then a 5 minute cool-down back on the bike. Go me and my improving stamina!
I grabbed myself a new-to-me drink: Whole Earth Organic Sparkling Elderflower on the way back to give myself an energy boost. So tasty and refreshing.
After a shower I decided it was just too nice to stay indoors working so this happened…
Sitting outside Cafe Nero, drinking a strawberry frappe, they didn’t have any coffee frappes left :-(, and reading John Harvey’s Lonely Hearts. Time spent alone, reading, out in the sunshine and enjoying a treat – blissful.
I then came back, did some work, did some organising, rested my poor weary legs and back and then cooked myself a quick dinner:
I cooked up some vegetables (courgettes, mushrooms and cherry tomatoes) and then also snacked on several handfuls of spicy chickpeas and some dried papaya and coconut. Oh, and some dark chocolate, about two squares. Well actually, maybe three…
It’s been a lovely weekend 🙂
I have lots and lots to do this week, it’ll be busy but hopefully positive and productive. Only 3 weeks to go till the Easter holidays!
What have you been doing this weekend?
Did you have lovely weather where you were? Did you make the most of it?
Any plans for the week ahead?
