Whoa body pump was hard last night! As I had 2 weeks off I was kind of expecting it, but during the lunges track my legs were seriously wobbling like jelly near the end and I didn’t think I would make it! Once I got home (after a shower and putting on PJ’s) I sat down the watch the debate, and treated myself to one of the lovely dark chocolate organic bunnies (my prize- am I getting obsessed with this prize??) from the lovely nak’d people. I had a little look at the website and they do so many amazing looking things. I am most impressed by the ingredients list which is just organic cocoa, organic sugar and organic vanilla. They are very rich (70% cocoa) and perfect with a cup of chai.
After the debate and question time it was certainly bed time! Today I was paying for it; I managed a walk after work but am feeling so stiff! Have ten miles planned for tomorrow morning so I am hoping it will be better by then.
When I got home I found the Nak’d Cashew Cookie wrapper on the table (from the lovely folks and www.naturalbalancefoods.co.uk) … empty! To be fair I had left it out for my boyfriend to eat as he liked the sound of it. His review; “it was really nice, I thought it would be crunchier but it was soft”. I did take a photo of the wrapper (cute wrapper with bumble bee on it and everything) to be added later.
We had a nice dinner; sausage and bean bake (from Rachel Allen’s Bake) only with a veggie sausage for me. I used to love the Grassington’s courgette and pepper sausages, but I can’t seem to find them anymore and I keep trying other versions but I don’t like ones that pretend to taste like meat, and cannot find one I like. I also made some bread (maybe I should change the name of this to the Rachel Allen appreciate blog?)- after re-watching her on Bake I have tried to copy her kneading style from the cookery school bit, and it really works! I think it helps having nice flour; am still using Dove’s Farm Malthouse Flour which is super tasty.
I have spent a lovely evening chilling out in front of the TV relaxing before my run tomorrow.
