Last week has been pretty good in terms of work. The highlight of the week is definitely a successful meeting I had with a client and one of their VPs – this being one of the biggest organizations in the world – where the presentation I did was on point. Funnily enough, it was focused on an area where I don’t particularly feel that I shine and that definitely boosted my morale for the whole weekend.
Other than that I am focusing on my exercise routine – loving my evening HIIT workouts this time around – rebuilding healthy eating habits – I am obsessed with edamame pasta at the moment – and just enjoying the city in urban adventures over the weekends.
