Mid-Week Catch Up – Week 4

This week we’ve both been feeling very tired, and have been going to bed exhausted most nights. So we thought we would see what we could do to ensure we didn’t carry that tiredness into our working days. So we’ve started with a meditative yoga session every morning. I (Jason) usually do some sort of yoga, stretching, or massage in the morning, but Sofi doesn’t. Next week I think we’ll make it more of an active session and maybe even do a session in the evenings before bed.

We’ve also gone back to eating porridge so we have a good source of slow-release energy. We usually eat porridge, but sometimes we mix it up during the week and have cereal or yoghurt. We’ve been making some more vegetable juices as well, rather than pure fruit juices.

Yesterday we had a nice green juice, although it was just the cucumber that was green! It consisted of 3 carrots, ½ cucumber, 2 oranges. Really good, and the cucumber gives it a really fresh taste 🙂

Today’s juice was the red devil above, which consisted of 3 small beetroots, 2 carrots, 1 apple, 1 blood orange. Absolutely delicious, and packed full of nutrients!

We will compile a list of juices soon to release as one large post, but in the meantime, we’ll keep posting some here and some on Instagram. You follow us on Instagram, right?

 

Unfortunately winter has decided to come back to Gothenburg this week, with more snow, some of which has settled. It wasn’t too slippery yesterday though, and I am planning on having a run at lunch today with some of my colleagues.

We’ll need fuel for both of these rides, and are planning to try out a new recipe for on-the-bike snacks, so keep your eyes peeled!

We’re thinking about going to the cinema Saturday afternoon as well…any tips?

Hope you have a good week,
Jason
