Funky Fitness Friday – ZRH

So I had orientation yesterday! I was quite surprised by how well my friends helped me prepare for university these last 2 weeks, as I actually already knew most of the info they told us and had done most of the things on their checklist. I was really relieved they showed us around the various university buildings as the Media and Communications campus is spread all over town… so it will definitely be an adventure getting from one class to the next! Among the people I had met, I felt like the super nerdy girl who was way too prepared, for whenever I asked the others about the books we had to buy or the courses they were taking, I received loads of confused glances, eye-rolling or pleas for help. Honestly, that gave me a slight boost of confidence, I guess 🙂 (don’t want to jinx it though!) Oh and also, I am not too worried about getting “distracted” from my studies as there were like 5 guys among the 600 girls….. some of the girls were really nice, and I already know who I can go to class with next week! Always good to have a study buddy for the first week 🙂 Workout-wise I’ve been trying to fit in as many classes as possible these last few days. I still didn’t make it to my favourite dance classes at Tanzwerk, but I plan on going tonight. I was going to go yesterday, but chose to spend time with some of the girls from my classes and later with my best friend instead. Also, I definitely need to cut back on partying, as my body really has not recuperated at all from this last half-year, and I don’t seem to be able to bounce back as quickly the next day anymore… weird development as I never used to have this problem, but I am taking it as a sign that I need more sleep and general “me-time”. Good thing school is starting on Monday 😉


Thursday:

Bauchtraining (yawn) and MAX. After falling in love with Les Mills CX Works, the standard for a good ab session has been set pretty high. I went to a class here titled “Bauchtraining” (ab work) but it was full of crunches with no breaks for 30 minutes. Les Mills taught me that there are so many other ways to train your core, and I frankly found the class to be very “behind the times”. I was very disappointed. The MAX class afterwards was fun though. It was basically a 30 min HIIT incorporating the step and various different muscle groups. There wasn’t much strength involved though, like as a cool-down as in Body Step, but it was good to do cardio for a change.

Friday:

Rest day from one night out. I was shocked how tired and weak I was feeling..

Saturday:

Stretching class: making mega improvements with my splits IMG_1654 Sunday:

Rest day, travelling back from Geneva

Monday:

I had all the best intentions in the world to start going to dance today, but just couldn’t muster up enough motivation… I made a pre-workout snack of egg whites and cottage cheese, but my stomach felt uneasy after and I just didn’t feel energetic. I went to town and bought protein powder and Kabocha instead. I’ve pinned a few recipes for protein energy bites and hope to make them this Sunday. I know that oatmeal is a great pre-workout snack, but I’m trying to find higher-protein and less filling alternatives for when I just need a boost.

Tuesday:

After not falling asleep until 3 am (apparently there was a full moon) I was still able to get up at 8 and go to Body Pump. We got to do quite a few tracks out of release 91! It is deadly with a capital D! In release 90 I was at a point in my training where I was able to increase the weights to 12.5 kg (either side) during squats. Now my legs were on fire with all the “bottom-half” squat-repetitions and had to decrease the weights again. Also, the triceps track is a killer… push ups, dips and using the overhead disk…. This release should definitely take my training to the next level! In the evening I went to a fixed-schedule dance class. I’ll be trying to go to this class (and Saturday’s stretch) as much as I can, and have marked it in my calendar throughout the semester, so that I have a bit of a fixed workout schedule. I will also try to always go to at least one Bodypump class, but will pretty much wing when exactly. Also I plan on spontaneously choosing dance classes (on either Monday, Wednesday or Thursday) and trying to go to crossfit twice a month with friends.

Wednesday:

Bodypump (release 90 again, so increased my weights as I know this release by heart). I wanted to go to dance today, but saw my favourite teacher wasn’t there. She won’t be there today either sadly, but there are more classes I enjoy going to today than on Wednesday so I plan on going anyways.

Thursday:

I had wanted to go to modern, but didn’t take my dance clothes with me to orientation (I’m “special” enough as it is with all my hyper-active, totally open talking…didn’t need to be a pack mule as well 😉 ). By the time it was over, I didn’t have enough travel time to go home, eat, pick up my clothes and go to dance by 5.30 pm, so I decided to hang out with some friends instead.

Friday:

Today I plan on going to Barre a Terre, jazz, and possibly urban contemporary. Let’s see if I actually finally make it for a change. I really wonder what is holding me back… Now I am off into town to buy some last-minute school supplies and more kabocha squash (I just roasted the second one I had bought and have eaten too much already) and bananas, as I am planning on doing another smoothie-packed day tomorrow.

Have a beautiful day and go check out Sam’s blog for more fitness fun 🙂 !

Funky Fitness Friday

The countdown has started: One more week until I finish my internship, leave Munich and return home, one more week until I get to go to my favourite dance classes, and slightly over 3 weeks until University starts.

Exciting times people, exciting times 🙂

Now since I haven’t been able to go to any dance classes in the time I spent here (I couldn’t find any schools near the office and any classes after 7 pm), I really upped my workouts and discovered a new-found passion for weight-lifting and Les Mills. I also set a goal to join CrossFit in September, which I am currently not sure about as it is making me feel slightly overwhelmed.

Every single time I have mentioned my fitness journey on here, I told myself I would write a more substantial, weekly workout post and mention how my body, strength and endurance have changed… but I kept on pushing it back. Weekends were cherished with time spent with my friends and less devotion to the blog, and before I knew it, it was Manicure Monday again and I still hadn’t shared my excitement for Body Step or Body Pump (let alone actually posting my manicure on Monday 😉 ).

Well, now is the time that will change. Better late than never, right? And I figured, while I am still not spending time twirling away at dance class, I would revamp “Funky Friday” and change it to “Fitness Friday” for the time being. (And seeing as I have fallen in LUUURV with the gym, you will probably be seeing a few posts along with dance posts when I am back in Zürich as well, with emphasis on university/fitness/life balance.) I am so glad Sam from Pancake Warriors decided to host a Fitness Friday link up! Great minds think alike: the timing couldn’t be more perfect! So after reading my week of fitness, head on over to her blog for more sporty fun 🙂

Fun fact: I told my favourite Les Mills instructor that I was leaving in 4 weeks, and he said he can’t believe the “happy sunshine girl” was not going to be there every Monday and Thursday motivating the class with smiles despite the intense cardio hour…. #sadface, yet it gave me a warm and fuzzy feeling. Going to the gym 3 times a week and staying true to your favourite classes really gives you that “home away from home” feel… I mean even the frequent class-goers are talking to me and asking me about my weekend now, and have invited me to their post-BodyPump hangout with protein shakes and Prosecco (too much fun by the way.. these people are a hoot and a half and have the best stories)!! It took 4 months for friendships to form and now I have to leave… 😦 But it’s nice to know that my happy and smiley personality doesn’t go unnoticed and that most of them are planning on visiting my fav gym in Zürich soon too 🙂

Mmmkay, lengthy, explanatory intro is down.. so without further ado, here is this week’s workouts:

Monday

Fueled by a banana and peanut butter I powered through two amazing workouts: First I found my “chi” in Body Balance before pumping my heart rate up in the Athletic version of Les Mills Body Step.

The athletic version is shorter and has 3 High Intensity “athletic” full-body circuit tracks instead of the more dancey “party” tracks of the usual class. I actually really prefer the athletic version of the latest release and hope I get to do it again before I leave.

I opted out of the Body Pump class after because I managed to make it to the early-ish Balance class. In lieu of the weight-training based class I decided to quickly work my inner- and outer thigh muscles, shoulders, biceps and back on the machines. I chose the machines that trained as many muscle groups as possible, so only had to switch 3 times! 🙂

Sidenote: my heart rate monitor died on me during the class 😦 But I think this could be a great experiment for me to learn to work out “just for fun” and to meet my goals – not for “burning calories”!

Tuesday

Les Mills CX Works, followed by the last 30 minutes of Body Attack (both classes start at the same time, but I like the extra emphasis CX Works puts on core and lower-back strength).

If I am really feeling dedicated, I use the 30 minutes before the next class (see below) to do a HIIT run on the treadmill. This would normally involve a very short warm-up jog, as I had just done an intense class and wouldn’t need much more, followed by intervals of extremely fast sprints and recovery jogs. Sometimes I also throw in a steep walk in between the sprints. Since I only mildly enjoy treadmill work, I always search for an excuse not to do it… so when a workout buddy asked me to join her for the last part of Body Attack I was all in 🙂

IMG_1647

Then I did Body Pump. I love the trainer on Tuesdays – he is so much fun and pushes me to work harder each and every time because I am there quite frequently. This means he will sometimes give me this look when we are putting weights on the bar, as if to say: “You can do better than that”. This time for example he came up next to me during the squat track and laughed at my attempt to attach as many 2.5 kg plates to my bar. He suggested to just go for 20 kg next time… yeah right, since when does 5 + 2.5 + 1 + 1 add up to 20? I might get there eventually, but squatting for 5 minutes with 20 kilos on both shoulders is definitely no joke, so I am currently happy with my “total” of 20 kg (FYI you are meant to increase your weight to double or triple of your warm-up weight)

IMG_1493

This time I also increased chest, shoulders and triceps by 1.5 kg 🙂 Slowly making progress!

I also increased the squat weight to 12.5 kg on both sides, but immediately regretted that because our trainer mixed up the songs…so it wasn’t the track I had been doing for the last 6 weeks (which I totally knew I could increase on because 10 kg were getting too easy). Nope, it was a really tough track with quite a few ultra-low squats… my legs were on FIRE! FYI: Trainers might start mixing the tracks after 6 weeks because new training plans are only released every three months! This keeps things more interesting, but also slightly tricky from a weight-selecting point of view…

After class one of the girls who always takes the same classes with me on Tuesday asked if I wanted to do some CX Works Core with her, as she had missed the class.. I was more or less dead, but was honored she asked me to be her “trainer”. I knew most of the moves, as I seemed to have picked them up quickly after years and years of learning choreography as a dancer, and used fun songs on my phone. She said I was really motivational and INTENSE and that I should definitely look into teaching because she would without a doubt take my courses… so I had yet another “warm fuzzy feeling” moment… question is: when should I train to become a teacher and when would I teach…? decisions… decisions…

Wednesday

After eating my dinner of peas, carrots and kidney beans at my desk at work, I head to my dance class. The first hour was an open class, where you could work on anything you found needed more attention. The second hour was a strength class, specifically created for dancers – it was tough, despite my improvements in BodyPump. This just goes to show that dancers don’t really need to go to the gym… they’ve got enough strength training in their daily routine. It also showed me that it is time to return to the dance studio and start cross training more 😉

Thursday

I took a rest day for 3 reasons. 1) my monthly membership had just expired and I didn’t see a point in renewing it for 1.5 weeks. 2) I absolutely had to go to town one last time before leaving Munich. This led me to find a Froyo place 5 minutes from my apartment… I am kind of glad I only just discovered that 😉 3) I finally wanted to actually get some sleep (didn’t work…at all.. ended up watching Weeds and getting hungry at around 10.30)

Friday

A sort of forced rest day, as I will be spending the afternoon in the train back to Zurich munching on my favourite Mango Curry one last time…

(last) Saturday

Stretching class designed for dancers. I am making MEGA improvements with my splits and back bends! Must remember to take progress pics! I am now using a block to get >180 degree angle in the splits… crazy, but doable and not as painful as I thought!

(last) Sunday

Rest day. Loads of much-needed sleep and replenishing my rice-cravings 🙂

This weekend I will be going to the stretching class again, a body weight strength class and Body Pump!

Have a great Friday! I’m just about to leave the office and schlepp my über-heavy, laundry-filled suitcase to the train station. ONE MORE WEEK TO GO!

With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo

 

Pump, pump, pump it UUUUUP

Yellow. How are you today? The weather in Munich is miserable with a capital EHM. Where is the gorgeous Summer we’ve long been waiting for? Talk about Summertime Sadness, people…

“The Queen is (most likely) not amused”

The only thing keeping me going during this dreary, rainy day is knowing that I will be going to my favourite BodyPump class this evening. I mean, not even tofu curry (and rice) made me happy – the HORROR! (I am now also craving chocolate.. carbo-loading…. I guess? )

IMG_1933

Ever since slowly seeing some results in terms of strength and how my clothes fit (no big differences yet but slowly seeing some changes), I’ve been better with a) my food choices (about 80% of the time, especially when not in Munich) and b) being disciplined and powerful at the gym. BodyPump is the class I try to never, ever miss. I aim to go 2-3 times per week, definitely on Tuesdays and Sundays, and if I can also Monday or Friday. It really depends on where I am and what my week looks like (and how much my legs hurt from squatting too low with too much weight 😉 ). Of course I could just do my own weight training, but I try to do those only once a week to work on technique.. I tend to not push my self as much in solo training sessions.

*Must be the little diva inside me wanting to be noticed ALL THE TIME. Limelight, centre stage, the one with the massive smile and talkative personality to match: That’s where you will find me 😉 *

IMG_1921

It’s funny really. I was at a stretch class a few weeks ago working on my splits, when the instructor put my feet up on blocks and said: Work harder. She helped by pushing me down lightly… the pain was atrocious but all I could do was smile.. it’s like the 8th World Wonder or something..what is wrong with me? I guess I smile through pain? Is that… good? Hmm…

2553_10153460206235245_419014129_n

Fun fact: my name means happiness (sort of) and yesterday I learned that my last name could be some sort of derivative of people dancing with scarves. Interesting how names can unconsciously describe people…

Back to Pump.

My addiction has become so extreme that I have even shlepped my father to the class.

Post workout selfie

He isn’t as convinced… yet 😉

Oh and guess what: I have learned to embrace my round behind: It helps me squat 16 kg and is the perfect “accessory” on the dance floor. If that isn’t reason enough to love it, I wouldn’t know what is. My name on Instagram isn’t anoushaykin_it for nothing 😉

Sidenote: Does dancing like a mad-woman at a club count as a workout? I think it should… Oh and did you know that Vodka is vegan (love this by the way – I want the shirt!)

IMG_1885

I’ve managed to go:

  • Right after coming back from my vacation
  • after sleeping 3 hours and partying all night
  • with only 5 minutes to spare and missing the warmup

…now that is dedication

And I have not just fallen in love with BodyPump.. I absolutely adore all of Les Mills’ repertoire. For cardio I go to Step, for 6-pack abs I go to CX-works, for HIIT I hope to go to Grits (it hasn’t been released here yet)… I’ve even been to their yoga/tai chi/pilates class a few times.

I am HOOKED.. and even thinking about training to be an instructor. You know while also wanting to take up CrossFit, go back to yoga, be a choreographer, finish my BA, write a book….. – yeah we’ve discussed that.

IMG_1920

Stay tuned for some progress reports on my training sessions and life in general.. as you can tell there will probably be a few posts and recaps with my growing fascination of it all 🙂

Have a beautiful, yet rainy day! I am still craving chocolate!

Thinking out Loud & Obsession Alert!

It’s crazy really… working in beauty has left me craving less products. Weird how being surrounded by products 24/7 leaves you uninspired and uncharacteristically “lazy” when it comes to trying new trends or *gasp* removing your makeup.
I sure am glad I don’t work at a froyo store.. oh the terror of no longer wanting to eat the deliciously creamy, dreamy goodness.

Speaking of which, there is an I ❤ Leo froyo place here. Naturally we had to go…

IMG_1188

I also had some carrot juice, cause you always need a healthy balanced meal. Protein and veg for the win!

IMG_1183
Moving on, I have discovered some products I hope will be hopping on to my ever-growing (albeit more slowly) collection of goodies.

This eyeliner from my recent reblog: I have never tried anything but the nail polish by Chanel and I believe it is high time I take a leap of faith 😉

This nail polish I mentioned on Monday. Still love it – still want it.

Now for some random thoughts for Thinking out Loud:

  1. THE SWISS TEAM MADE IT INTO THE NEXT ROUND IN THE WORLD CUP! In absolute patriotic manner, I made a tomato mozzarella salad a few weeks ago for their first game and designed my plate to look like the Swiss flag:

IMG_1201

I then added basil and cream of balsamico which turned my patriotic contribution into a work of art 😉

IMG_1202

Oh and you guys… I ate gluten-free chickpea gnocchi on the side! It was ok-ish, but I was just so in love with the idea of chickpea gnocchi I just had to share this with you!

IMG_1205

 

Too bad the Iranian team didn’t make it any further… I was totally ready to eat loads of rice and yoghurt to celebrate.. now I’ll have to eat it to cheer me up… so win/win on the food front, I guess?

2.  Another current obsession: fresh juice. There is a Chiquita juice stand at the train station, and when I don’t know what I want to eat on my train ride back to Zurich, I get myself a papaya, ginger, carrot smoothie with add ins like aloe vera or propolis.

IMG_1174

IMG_1176

Makes for one happy train traveller 😉

3.  Oh and another thing: I  AM IN LOVE WITH JOMA JEWELLERY! I found the cutest bracelet the other day and absolutely had to have it…

IMG_1180Anything with the word princess always takes me back to this ecard. Always.

MjAxMi1hOTYzOGQ4MzQxMjRkNmE4

But seriously though…

Joma Jewellery also has a few other cute bracelets I wouldn’t mind adding to my collection…I’m such a sucker for cutesie things with fun little sentences and meanings…

4.  Another love/obsession: This song

IMG_1177

It’s so PWEEEETTYYYY! I listen to it often while stretching after my intense workouts..

5.  Speaking of which, I’m doing super-well with my fitness goals! (Not so much with my nutrition because we have had TONS of press events lately, but more on that in another post!)

I am so happy that my body is getting used to the exercise i.e. my fat burn has increased since my heart rate is slowly becoming more “athletic”. I think I’m finally ready to venture in to the world of Crossfit! I seriously cannot wait to join, but still desperately working on my pull-up!

IMG_1236

IMG_1265

IMG_1220And this wouldn’t be a Thinking out Loud post without some beautiful pictures of the sky from my travels.

 

IMG_1228

IMG_1233Oh and on a final note: This dog! He loves cars! I can’t get enough of the cuteness 🙂

Fasching, Day 2

Picture the scene: I leave for the office around 9, which in Swiss working hours is extremely leisurely, and get to Beauty bright and “early”; only to find myself locked out! No one else was there yet… I didn’t know where they kept the key to the door so I ended up camping outside the door until the Editor in Chief of the WHOLE MAGAZINE finds me like a lost puppy scratching at the door trying to find a way to get it open – not a pretty sight.

Upon discovering my predicament she sent me down to the main floor along with another intern to pick up the “krapfen”, which were specially ordered for today. Might as well do something useful, I guess… For those of you how don’t know, Krapfen are basically doughnuts filled with a multitude of delicious things, varying from Nutella, to applesauce – little bites of yum, terrible for my diet.

1958501_10153916281170245_1501715758_nNot really being able to get a grip on the concept that people working for a fashion magazine actually ATE anything, let alone a Krapfen, I walked back to my office in a haze without realising the door was magically opened in the short time I had left my guarding post. I left the other intern to deliver the doughnuts to the non-dieting employees and went to my desk.

OOTD :D (yesterday)

OOTD 😀 (yesterday)

One of my many tasks today was to try and test the JAWBONE Up tracking device. One of the many things I’ve been wanting to try lately was the FitBit flex, so you cannot believe how hard it was to contain my excitement when my boss dropped the bracelet off at my desk and asked me to test it for a week! You guys will definitely be hearing from me 😉

Another highlight today was calling a Swiss company to ask for the press release information of a sunscreen coming out in April. The reason I was enticed by the phone call was that I got to speak Swiss German again! You can’t imagine how much you start to miss your dialect when you have to speak “high German” all day – it’s weirdly exhausting!

I had the afternoon off because of Fasching – also the reason for the Krapfen this morning.  Fasching, also known as Karneval in Germany or Fasnacht in Switzerland, is a festival season that leads up to Lent where people dress up in funny costumes and parade around town. There is singing, dancing and plenty of partying. I, unaware of the celebration, didn’t realise I would only be working in the morning and leaving the office at one with confetti in my hair… thanks to one of our coworkers walking around with oversized glasses throwing the little itsy bits of colourful paper everywhere. Not knowing what to do, I tagged along with the other interns who wanted to avoid the festivities and joined them for chai tea lattes at the cute Barer 61 on the other side of town. I was really happy to see they could make everything with soy milk 🙂 It’s the little things..

After sipping the last dregs of frothy milk from our mugs we decided to walk to café Jasmin – apparently the oldest café in Munich! The interior was a gentle mix of light green and gold; comfy, cozy yet slightly majestic. Here I had some green tea and enjoyed an hour of people watching while gossiping with the girls about life 🙂

I have to say, while it might have been fun to see the people all dressed up in their craziest gear, it was nice to get to know the people I’m working with for the next month while enjoying a bit of the city I have yet to discover entirely!

Hope you guys are having a wonderful Tuesday 🙂

Thinking Out Loud Thursday 2

I ran out of my favourite foundation today and lost my inspiration to blog about my makeup selections for Beauty to the Pointe.. so what to do when you don’t know what to write about? Join a linkup as fun as this one! Thank you Amanda for hosting!

Thinking-Out-Loud1. My work out goals for 2014 started off badly, but now that I decided to make myself a fixed schedule, things have been more “smooth sailing”. I made it to the gym twice this week and will be going again tomorrow. Today was a much-needed rest day!

IMG_1268

IMG_12532. …and what do you do on a rest day? You eat cupcakes…because that’s how it is meant to work, right? Eat clean only while training mean… or something like that 😉

IMG_1270

3. I have found a really nice nail polish remover, and while things like Liquid Sand and Glitter are still really hard to remove, it leaves my fingers extremely soft.

IMG_1256

I can’t wait to try other Josie Maran products!

IMG_1257

4. The Matcha Green Tea Latte has made a return twice since last week… there is no hope! 😉

IMG_1258

IMG_1266

5. I have the cutest dogs in the whole entire universe. Yes, I may have mentioned this before, but I’ve been hanging out with them a lot lately and they never fail to be CUTE! Check my phone – all recent pictures are of them (or of food!)

IMG_1260

Playing like a puppyIMG_1262

I caught her working on my computer….

IMG_1261

IMG_1259

They both hug the blanket! SO CUTE!

IMG_1263

Checking up on me… 🙂

6. I am in LOVE with this tea from Teavana. It is called Choco Caramel Sea Salt. Why don’t they have a store here?!

IMG_12647. I’ve changed my nail polish three times this week. That means my next three Manicure Monday posts are already written and ready! Now that’s what we call well prepared 😉

8. IMG_0968I bought one of these in the States because everyone else was using them too. I have to say, I like it, but want to try and make my own as well!

9.IMG_0930Class at Sarah Lawrence starts soon again and it will be really weird not going back. I really miss my friends back in New York and while I know that it is the right thing for me to stay here, I will be missing staying up late with a group of friends talking and meeting up with everyone at lunch. I’m glad though that I mainly miss the social aspect, because that is possible to keep up from a different country!

10. Our Christmas decorations are going back into the cellar tomorrow. I don’t know how I feel about that… the Holidays are officially over…

Thans for reading! With attitude and nail polish, Anoushé xoxo

 

 

What I ate Wednesday: Coconut Pancakes!


My day started with some coconut flour pancakes. I’ve been dreaming of pancakes ever since I made Greek Yoghurt pancakes based off of the recipe found on the link on Sunday for dinner. They were perfect and enough to fulfil any pancake fantasy (recipe coming soon), but today I wanted to make them slightly more “healthily”.

IMG_1232

 

Hence, the coconut flour.

IMG_1233I pretty much followed this recipe to a T. The pancakes looked so amazing in the pictures that I could not resist whipping them up myself. The recipe made enough for two hungry people, and I had plenty left over.

IMG_1237

 

I ate a few with sprouted almond chia butter and maple syrup, and realised I hadn’t let them cook enough. I put them all back into the pan, and they became slightly crumbly like Kaiserschmarn. This gave me the idea to top my second attempt with raspberry jam. Mhhhm 🙂

IMG_1243

After breakfast I took the dogs out for a walk and got ready for the gym. I went for a training session with my dad today, and boy was it tough!

IMG_1253

We trained for an hour and I was relatively famished afterwards. I was planning on meeting my best friend a half hour later, so I popped into this cute place call “not guilty” for a quick bite to eat. I ordered the Inka Salad, which had quinoa, avocado, tomato and cucumber. After ordering I realised they also had tofu, but decided I had eaten enough protein yesterday, so stuck with my order. It was really fresh and delicious!

IMG_1248

IMG_1245

 

IMG_1247

A short while later I sat down to another Matcha Green Tea Latte with soya milk. I was really craving something warm and sweet after walking around town in red 7/8 pants (I thought it was warm) and All Stars.

IMG_1250

 

IMG_1252

 

Tonight I’ll be going out for dinner with the Iranian girlfriends. I haven’t seen them in ages and can’t wait to catch up with them! I just checked out the menu of the Italian restaurant and will probably be going for something like risotto and vegetables. I’m trying to avoid wheat as much as possible because I’ve been noticing terrible stomach pain whenever I eat bread etc, so no pasta for me tonight! :/

How were your Wednesday food choices?
