Food & Active Log

Here we are at the end of the weirdest week. Woke up with my duvet in the centre of my bed and my torso and legs cocooned. I had cleverly set the alarm on the other side of the bed, so had to deconstruct to turn it off.

So I shot out of bed and did my morning work out. It warmed me up well and I didn’t realise the single digit temperature outside or the condensation on the windows. The workout was accompanied by a dance around the bedroom as I sought out something to where for work, and in more time than it should have taken I was power walking through the neighbour hood towards the tram stop.

Back to work for one day, I rode the tram right to the building. Managed to buy a pot of bircher muesli and greek yoghurt to accompany my morning latte. Talk about fire and ice in my hands. By the time I got to my desk the skin had reddened.

When the clock struck twelve, I took my daily walk to the train station but didn’t quite make it the Boost Juice bar. The cold winds and my lack of weather appropriate attire struck a chord as I passed the Mexican bar. The thought of something sizzling won me over in a heartbeat, and I nestled in for a Chorizo Burrito.

It kept me going throughout the day. I don’t think I even realised I was hungry until I got home at 8pm, cold and standing in the dark. The cold night air discouraged the evening walk home. But on a positive note, in a moment of guilt, I settled for a bowl of Alpen rather than indulging in Uber Eats. At 9pm I’m no longer hungry, but am left wanting for something warm and fuzzy.

So all in all, today’s food resulted in a high carb day and low active day. I guess I’ll start again tomorrow.
