Looking forward to aerobics!

I am looking forward to that tonight- to leaping around the room to cheesy tunes!

I had to go to the doctors this morning, which I hate. I get very nervous going there, and always have very high blood pressure readings, which then makes me worry more in case I actually have high BP. Anyway, luckily the appointment was on time so I didn’t have to sit in the waiting room getting nervous for too long. I now have a special sheet of paper to record my own BP readings at home. Fingers crossed it will be fine!

After that I had to do shopping (last food shop before I go back to work and we can get it delivered again!)- but at that time it was nice and quiet.

I made some pasta sauce (basically it is roasted vegetables- this time various coloured peppers, tomatoes, red onion, with garlic, oregano and a little bit of olive oil)- which I will then put into little tubs and freeze- easy peasy work night dinner


I was supposed to be having people over this afternoon, so I made some cute little dark chocolate cookies from Hummingbird . But they keep dropping out so I may well have the radio for company instead!

I adapted the recipe to make half, and it still made 15 mini cookies:

Preheat oven to 170C/ 325F).

Gently melt together 100g dark chocolate and 25g butter (I used clover light).

In a seperate bowl mix one egg, 85g brown sugar and 1tsp vanilla and whisk together. Slowly add melted chocolate mix.

Then stir in 45g flour (I used wholegrain spelt from Dove’s Farm), 1tsp baking powder and gently mix. Then add in 50g chopped dark choc.

Spoon onto baking trays and bake in the oven for 10-15 mins. Mine only took ten mins as I like them chewy, and they will continue baking on the trays for a little bit.

Then transfer to a cooling rack once they have cooled a little.

I worked out the cals as 95 cals per cookie, so not bad for a little treat.

(Here is the pasta saue before I blend it up!)

I also had a look on healthy living blogs today. It is a new website, sort of a directory of all different blogs. If you want your blog to be on there, then you email them- details here:

To be included in the blog listings, simply send an email with the following information to healthylivingblogs@gmail.com:

  • Email subject line: MEMBERS
  • Your name (please let me know if you prefer to go by first name, first and last, or however you prefer to be known on the Internet)
  • Your blog name and URL
  • Your twitter username, if you have it
  • Your location (if you prefer not to disclose this information for privacy’s sake, that is completely understandable. We’ll simply include your blog listing in the a-z listing, not by location, too)
  • Any specific labels (i.e. vegan, gluten-free, weight loss, running, etc.)


I did it a few days ago and my blog is now on there πŸ™‚ and I have already had a nose around other people’s blogs, so it’s a good source if you are looking for specific blogs too.

In other news I have got confirmation that I am signed up to the Hers 10K, on the 11th October, so that is good as it is my first race since the St Albans Half marathon. I did the race last year, so I am hoping to beat my time, and as I know the course a little better I should be able to pace myself. Here’s to hoping anyway.

The only thing that annoys me is that the entry fee includes a T-shirt, but it is a baggy cotton one, which I would never wear. There is no option for not getting the t-shirt (which would be better as then the extra amount could go to charity). Or perhaps they could doΒ a more expensive entry fee that included a technical t-shirt instead? The two of us are starting to get a drawer full, as we both did the Herts 10k last year and the St Albans Half had a free t-shirt at the end too.

My fave end of course must is a medal (coz I deserve it) and a banana (coz I need it!). I have never got anything amazing in a goody bag- a few trial packs of muesli, cereal bars, energy drinks and stuff seem to be the norm.

So any fave race mementos? Or any end of race goody-bag wishes?

  1. I’ve only raced in a few 5Ks but placed in both of them πŸ™‚ In one I got a huge jug (that I’ll never use..it’s almost twice the size of my head) filled with candy that’ll never get eaten..I just don’t really have a taste for super sweet stuff anymore. Then second one I got a lunch bag thing which might actually come in handy. πŸ˜› But both of them came with the baggy shirts- one wayyy too big cause they ran out of my size. haha!
