Last week, I gave a recap of all posts and videos during the confinement, today I'm going to give a very personal point of view of this.
I’ve wonderfully managed this quarantine, I even proclaimed myself Queen of Quarantine, beautiful as always even in pyjamas!
Ok, well, I'm going to be honest, it was time for the confinement to end because I was going to become an alcoholic, obese and crazy woman!
I didn't really follow the advice I’ve given in my article Quarantine (to re-read).
Aperitif every night, it was fun and it reminded me of the holidays, but the tomato juice and the cucumber were not really invited:
And yes, obviously we’re a lot to have eaten too much during these 8 weeks.
The good side is we’ve learned to cook with what we had in the cupboards, and especially we’ve discovered lots of new recipes.
Goodbye home delivery, welcome good homemade meals.
I was very lucky, my sister loves cooking, I’ve only had to enjoy, my curves know it!
Don’t forget Sunday brunch, on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday etc hahaha!!
My favourites: brioche bread with scrambled eggs and pan-fried foie gras, baked egg with cream / bacon and hazelnuts, grilled halloumi, whole hazelnut cookies.
So, nothing surprising I’ve gained 8lbs, being sedentary - understanding watching TV all day - especially when Gene Kelly and Franck Sinatra are in the same movie (Anchors aweigh).
Well yes, frankly the first weeks who wanted to sweat in their living room?? Personally, just watching dance and fitness classes on my screen, I was already tired.
Of course, when I started to feel squeezed into my pyjamas, I’ve made some effort, because there was no question of removing brunch or wine time!
Thanks social media and all the amazing people who helped us stay in shape or just not gain more weight.
The Wii Board helped too, out from a box in the garage, and apparently I'm a star…
I’ve sometimes occupied my time in an interesting way, doing a unicorn make-up for example, manicure included. Remember I love Unicorns (read the article again).
A few more weeks, and there was a good chance I stay like this permanently.
For once I can acknowledge the French Government for something ...
Then, we celebrated it with a Tropical Party! (Power to the Minions?!?)
I didn’t go out at all this week, it takes 21 days to change our habits, remember I've explained it in my Article Be Positive. So, I have 3 weeks to know what I'm going to do.
I started to make a list, in this order:
This is all I can do within a 62mi radius, unfortunately my family and friends are too far, patience ...
In the meantime, I'm working and napping.
But now I have an extremely difficult decision to make, which pair of shoes am I going to wear for my very first day out?
Ahhhh my precious shoes, I missed you, read again:
At the end of the article, the trailer of Smallfoot; no matter who we are, we can all live in harmony if everyone makes an effort ...
Love & Fun,
