Crazy about Mac…

… Macbook that is (not McDonalds…). Yes, I took the plunge and instead of a new PC Laptop bought a Macbook (plus office for mac, an Ipod and a nice bag for that matter haha).

I am superduper excited about my new toy and love it dearly. It comes to class with me every day and I ‘play’ on it, trying to work out all the new and different things like applications etc. It’s really fun and I’m so glad I made the switch.

I still have my PC Laptop because aside from it needing an external keyboard to function (defeats the laptop purpose, really), it still works fine and since I wouldn’t get much money for it (2.5 years old) I keep it as a desktop PC at home. Also, because I can only use my work’s remote access on a PC, not a mac, so the PC can be my work computer haha.

Anyway, I have been busy with deadlines at work and uni, still settling into the routine of full-time study and part-time work and just lots of stuff on like presentations and fairs at uni and the likes. So that’s why I had to neglect the blog somewhat recently.

I think it is unrealistic for me to attempt a blog entry every day. I would much rather blog only once or twice a week but then write a really valuable and informative entry with recipes and pictures. So it’s quality over quantity from now on.

My raw food eating has been very poor recently. I mean I ate amost 100% raw but it contained lots of nuts, seeds, agave nectar, dried fruits, etc, so I am not very happy with that. My weight, funnily enough, hasn’t been affected but my mood certainly has and how I feel physically: sluggish, low energy, the likes.

I have been eating monomeals for breakfast lately – banana ice cream haha. I love it and it works for me but then I find it difficult to incorporate enough green smoothies because for lunches and dinner I really prefer salads or other crunchy, chunky meals, not soups or smoothies. But I’ll get there :-).

I have decided, since I already make a meal plan for my boyfriend (helps me plan the cooking and save money), I will also make a meal plan for myself and stick to it. That way I know when to prepare what meals and won’t get stuck in situations where I just binge on everything in sight :-).

Our apartment also needs a bit of attention on the tidying up side of things :-). I might have a whirl through today before going to class (but after my run).

I planned on doing Bikram Yoga for the first time this week but didn’t get around to it yesterday because assignment commitments took over. I really want to go next week though. Maybe I’ll make it to Sunday’s 10am class. I might not go to my normal class tomorrow because I want to run in the morning and will be going to the horse races (social club at my BF’s work is having an outing and hired a corporate box – they’re even making vegan food for me yay) at lunch time and to a social dance at night. So Sunday I should take up the opportunity. Then I know what it’ll be like before going to the early (6.30am) class on Thursday.

Yes, I have lots planned at the moment and feel somewhat stressed just because I have a deadline at work which means I might have to go into the office on the weekend (confidentiality prohibits me from taking home that particular piece of work). And then there is uni as well, I have an assignment for management accounting to do and a presentation for industrial psychology. And I also want to run on the weekend, as well as relax and finally use the ear candles I bought.

I’m sure it’ll all work out, I just need to make a good plan that shows me how to schedule everything and how to stay on track with all the tasks.

First things first, I better get on the road now. I’m planning an 11km run today, stretching my distances gradually.

I will make an effort to have a nice raw food post up on the weekend.

All the best my dearest readers and enjoy the weekend ahead (it’s Friday 7.15am here already hehe)

  1. Macbook rocks!!! And, yes, it’s more fun blogging when you feel like it and have something to say. No matter what 😉

  2. I just wanted to say that I feel the same way about meal planning; I plan what I will make for Cooked Husband but neglect myslef, and then eat whatever I find or even nibble some of his cooked stuff, then am disappointed in myself. I hope your planning is going well, and thank you for reminding me that I have been meaning to do the same for many months now!
    Great blog!

    • Hey Blanka,
      yes, it’s challenging to not forget about yourself sometimes :-). My meal planning isn’t going too well at the moment, I have to admit. But I am trying to at least do it for 1 day in advance, so I feel prepared for the next day when going to bed at night.
      Today’s plan is: green smoothie for breakfast, salad for lunch, fruit and vege sticks for dinner. A friend is coming around for afternoon tea (every Tuesday and she’s raw vegan, too) and we’ll do raw vegan ice cream sampling 🙂

  3. Raw vegan ice cream sampling sounds just fabulous! I wish I was there, and generally in NZ!Love the place, so green peaceful and beautiful!
    I will make a note for myself, maybe print an empty menu chart and fill it in with ideas, I have done it a few times and it helps to keep the focus. Even if you don’t follow it every day…
    Have a yummy day, it’s nice to connect this way!
