so I thought I’d just give you an all around update on my life, university, fitness, health, all that stuff.
Covering uni first cause I think it’s the topic I can cover the quickest. So I’ve been studying International Business Administration for almost two months now. I have to say that I am not really sure if that is really the thing I am looking for, but it’s just the beginning and I guess there’s a lot of base that needs to be covered first. Some classes are really interesting and some are not and I’m actually kind of nervous about the exams that are starting in the middle of July. I just hope that all goes well and I don’t have to do a class again.
Now onto health and fitness. I have to say that I have been really good with the fitness part at the beginning. Like I went to the gym 3-4 times a week at least and on the days I didn’t go I did some yoga at home. Lately I’ve been slacking, though. I just feel really down and don’t really have the energy to do anything. But, it’s finally starting to wear off and I feel more like being active again and am really looking forward to going to the gym again.
Health wise though I am struggling a little. I want to get into meal prepping, but can’t really find the perfect recipes. I usually eat what I’m in the mood for and as you know from my previous post, breakfast is the only thing I am actually prepping. I do prep lunch for mondays as I am at uni all day. Hope I’ll be able to do more of that in the future, as it will really help with being more aware of the calories and macros I eat. What I can recommend to prep though are rice dishes like the one I posed in my Favorite recipes post a while ago or wraps are an easy thing to prep as well. Just cut up a few veggies and you’re good to go.
Here I just added some Hummus as my sauce then put on some lettuce, spinach, cucumber, paprika and corn. Usually I also add some Tofu that I seasoned with some pepper and paprika then cooked it with some coconut oil and soya sauce and then cut into stripes and some beans, but I didn’t have beans at hand that time and was too lazy to prepare the tofu. But I hope you get the idea 🙂
I also started to increase my protein intake.
Here you can see some of the protein bars I’d like to eat. Most of the time I have one of them at hand to snack on if I didn’t pack enough food for Uni.
So here we have Veganz (they are currently only available in Germany, but if you’re from the US I can recommend trying the GoMacro Bars, which are also vegan and have a great message behind them), Clif Bar and the protein ball co. I also ordered myself the vegan protein blend by MyProtein, which I like to take during the weeks when I am going to the gym often.
I hope you got an idea on what’s going on in my life right now. Health and fitness wise I also decided to join a fitness community that includes 12 week challenges, which I’ll join around the middle of June. I will update you on that and tell you which one I decided on when I actually joined and am in the middle of the challenge maybe so I can also tell you about my experiences and show you some results. If you can’t wait that long, then follow me on Instagram as I will probably post something about it on there as well.
Hope you enjoyed that post and I’ll see you next time – xo.
