This week has not been a great week with routines or habits… infact i have just sort of thrown all my routines, “have-to’s” and regular habits out the window because i have felt rather unmotivated.
Meaning, i didn’t meal prep either on Sunday or Monday (still had left overs and lots of lentil soup!). I haven’t gone to the gym/exercised as usual. Haven’t studied (though done all my group work, had 2 presentations and long lectures/presentations in school). If i am honest, i don’t know what i have done these past 4 days… because it sure hasn’t been anything productive, hahaha. (Well aside from all the school work and presentations).
I think i just needed some days off…. But now it is back to routines and habits and that means 1) Meal prepping. 2) Going to school to sit and study on my own. 3) Cleaning my room and that means hoovering as well. 4) Writing down goals and plans for the day and week – this helps keep me organized.
I have been living too much in the future – planning my apartment move which in 2 weeks time. Writing down what furniture and household things i need to buy. Thinking about how it will be when i move…..
Worrying about summer, summer job, worrying about autumn (as we have elective courses meaning that some are doing their studies abroad, some are working during the autumn term, and i can either apply to 4 courses, or do 3 courses and one course which means practical work…. and it is just giving me alot of anxiety thinking about this and having to have it sorted within the next few weeks.) as well as even more planning, emailing and other things on my mind…. basically meaning i am living in the future, dealing with anxiety and not focused on actually doing what is necessary right now. That’s life sometimes.
The first step however is meal prepping which you see below 🙂 Meal prepping means i save time each day as i don’t need to cook everyday or meal. It also means i eat right and get enough energy into me and it also gives me some structure to the day and week!
Meal prep this week:
Red lentil, carrot and potato soup
Fries – carrot and garlic and thyme potatoes (Also made sweet potato fries!)
Oven roasted vegetables
Anammas minced meat which i made into burgers and “meat”balls
1kg dried chickpeas which i have boiled and now made into hummus and beetroot hummus
And also have some tofu which i will fry up or add some sauce when it is time to eat
And of course avocados and frozen vegetables!
And breakfast and snacks – soy yoghurt, fruit, muesli, scones, tofu scramble, roasted chickpeas or edmame beans, soy protein powder
