Weekend pancakes

Good morning guys and happy weekend!

Today is my work Saturday but I woke up feeling all types of happy for no apparent reason. I was also inspired to make this fitness friendly Saturday breakfast which includes pancakes.

I already told you that I am struggling to stay healthy and active during quarantine and I successfully turned it into my daily habit. I don’t skip my workouts and I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet. It is really paying off since I have been feeling much better and am able to cope with this current situation with a positive attitude.

My shift starts at noon and after that I will be resting and tomorrow I am going over to my sisters where we are celebrating Mother’s day. I can’t wait for my nephew to give me a proper workout because that child never stops. He is super active and is always running around. The last time I spent the morning with him my tights were killing me because he made me jump with him for hours on his trampoline. Yes, he has a trampoline (long story).

I am really happy about Croatia slowly going out of quarantine. Our bars and restaurants are being opened starting 11/5/ and there are less restrictions. We already know this will probably cause a new surge in the number of ill people, but I think that we will get through this fine because we became much more careful. I just hope people will still practice social distancing and keep themselves safe.

How is the situation in your country and what are your plans for the weekend?

A team building lunch

Hello everyone!

In the past few days I have been living my best life foodwise and beerwise. Yesterday I got up in the morning, had to do some shopping and then I met up with my coworkers at Stir Up. We had a brainstorming session and drank some coffee and then we went to have some lunch together and a few beers because we haven’t had any, how should I say, holiday meetup to just have fun and talk a bit.

Yesterday’s outfit looks good on a picture. The scarf and the pants didn’t like each other because everything from the scarf got stuck to the pants and I had to clean them every 10 minutes. But I still love it, especially the jacket!

lunch beer

For lunch I had tortillas because I couldn’t stand the sight of meat and fried food. I had too much junk food in the last few days and this was a better option. We had a great time at lunch and then I spent the day on the blog. I am looking for a new design, new theme for the blog, I want to customize it a bit. Small changes are always welcome.

Just want to remind you that you have until tonight to go and read our first Coffe date with Luna and participate in our gratitude post. I will be publishing all of your lovely comments later tonight.

As for New Years, I have some really special plans. I had some food, beer and movies. I will also be looking stunning in my outfit which is actually my leopard print payama. As you can tell, I do not have some special plans for tonight and I will be chilling at home but do share in the comments what your plans are!

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Dinner time

So, I’ve decided to do more random posts and I hope you will like it. Today I was running around my university getting all of the paper necessary to officially obtain my bachelor’s degree after which I had coffee with my friends and it started to rain like crazy. We had to get to the car and we were soaking wet. There was water literally pouring down my face and arms and I had to squeeze the rain out of my hair before getting into my apartment to have a nice, long shower. The rains in Zadar can get crazy, trust me.

The day after tomorrow I am going home to my mommy for a while so I have my “clean the fridge” action going on. I am absolutely against throwing food away and there’s a bunch of veggies and fruits in my fridge so I’m just trying to eat or freeze everything there is. This gives me the opportunity to eat large, delicious meals like this one.

I have me some chicken breasts cooked on olive oil, steamed broccoli and yellow beans, a bit of onion (love to put it in everything), some kidney beans, rye bread and tzatziki. One of the things people sometimes think is weird about me is how much I love to eat broccoli. I am the child every parent wants LOL.  I am trying to eat healthier and exercise and I just killed it with this dinner. I am so full!

For tonight I think I’ll tune in with some videos by Jay Shetty. I recently joined his Genius Group and I’m catching up with everything and all of the videos. I just find him to be so amazing and able to inspire people to become better.

I hope you are having a great evening or day (depends where you are from). Thank you for reading, love you so much!

Rainy Saturday

I set my alarm to 7 this morning because I have a bunch of studying to do this weekend and I really need an early morning to do my meditation, workout, cook, clean my apartment and everything else but when the alarm went off I just heard rain falling and couldn’t force myself to get out of bed. My will power was straight to zero. No. I just wasn’t getting up so  I slept for one more hour and then the guilt made me get my lazy ass up.

I made my yummy breakfast with some music in the background. Currently, still obsessing over Machika by J Balvin. It’s just stuck in my head since it came out. Also, loving the El Farsante remix by Ozuna and Romeo Santos. As you can see, I’m into this type of music.

My breakfast is pretty simple. Just some crunchy raspberry muesli with dark chocolate, an orange because I can’t eat my breakfast without some fruit and my hot lemonade. It’s just a half of squeezed lemon, some honey and hot water. I really enjoy drinking it to cleanse my organism and it’s also yummy, like a lemon tea.

Anyway that’s it from me this morning. I have to make my big cup of coffee and get down to work even though I just want to be in my bed and watch movies.

Enjoy you weekend!

Caramelized banana oatmeal

Good morning! I don’t know what time it is in your country (tell me in the comments) but here in Croatia it’s 10:20 in the morning and I’ve been up since 8. Decided to take a morning walk to clear out my head and run some errands and now I’m enjoying my delicious, sweet breakfast.

I wrote in my post Grateful that I’m a big breakfast enthusiast so I decided to share one of my favorite and very easy breakfast recipe. This is my caramelized banana oatmeal.

All you need is some oatmeal, a banana, honey, salt, coconut oil and cinnamon. You cook your oatmeal on the side and you heat up a pan. Place the coconut oil, honey, salt and cinnamon on to the pan and when everything is nice and melted place your banana slices there. Turn them once to get some caramel on the other side as well. When you place everything into the bowl add some more cinnamon or flax seed, as you wish and enjoy your breakfast!

In my version there is also a large cup of black coffee waiting for me because I have so much studying to do today. I was a bit disappointed yesterday because I found out I failed an exam. It was actually translating a text from Croatian to Spanish and I honestly thought I did a good job, but no. I failed. It’s not the end of the world because I have the right to take the exams four more times so I’m going to study really hard to pass it.

This is pretty much it from me today. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Lectures started

My head hurts so bad I can barely look at my screen. The weather is changing in Zadar and it’s causing me headaches. I hope it goes away fast because I can’t drink any more pills. Yes that’s right, I’m one of those people who drink a pill for pretty much everything. 

Since I’ve had that horrible headache the whole day my appetite wasn’t very big but I still had to eat something. This is my omelet tortilla. I basically put some olive oil into the pan, add half of a chopped up onion and some mushrooms and eggs to make an omelet. I always use something green in my tortilla, today it was lamb’s lettuce and I sliced a tomato on the side. It didn’t fit into the tortilla haha 

 

My first lecture was today. It was just great. Absolutely amazing. NOT! I love the professor teaching the subject but there will just be so much work this semester. It’s kind of freaking me out already. I went for a casual it-seems-like-I’m-trying look. In my estimation, I will be wearing sweatpants to lectures by the end of the week.  

Shirt H&M / Pants Espirit / Shoes Pull&Bear

This is it from me for today. Hope your day was wonderful and that you are happy! Don’t forget to stalk me on Instagram, like me on Facebook and follow me on Twitter.
