I had fun at body pump last night- hooray! I got home from work after such a busy day (lunch time meetings- bleurgh) and teated myself to some teapigs chocolate tea. As it was so cold, by the time the time came for me to leave, I was very tempted to stay at home. Anyway, I added an extra amount of weight to the squats track, as I am not finding this one as hard as the last one. The actual squats were fine, but it is getting the bar back off my shoulders that is so hard! I kept to my normal weights after that, and my legs werre really shaky during the back and lunges track- they were feeling the effects of the extra weights at the beginning! They are wobbly this morning too!
Once home I tried a Chocolate Banana Mule bar (a special re-fuel one).
It had a nice chewy texture, and every now and then a little crunch (13% almonds). The banana flavour was like natural dried banana coins (the chewy ones, not the ones baked in honey) but I am not keen on dried banana, so it was not my favourite. On the plus side, a 65g bar gave me 14g protein and 253 cals, and it seemed very substantial.
Also, I missed a parcel the other day and picked it up from the post office on my way to work yesterday. Look what I got;
What a cute bag. The contents are even better;
I cannot wait to try them! I decided to order the sample pack as I am running low on all things nakd, so I want to be able to order them so they come during half term.
I love the texture of the gluten free ones (esp cocoa orange and gingerbread) more than the normal oat ones, so I have high hopes for these. Andy decided he liked the look of the cocoa mint one, and I must say that looks like it might become my fave- a while ago on facebook and by email they asked for new flavour ideas- I think I sent them a massive list (carrot cake, peanut butter, cherry) and choc mint was one (I am not claiming credit, just saying how much I am looking forward to it!).
Anyone tried these yet?
Right, one more day (training) and then it’s half term. Hoping for a run after work so later guys!

Yes they are new flavours- you can order a sampler from the website for £3 or £4- I am looking forward to trying them!
Awesome you had a great Body Pump class. 🙂 I remember taking it and always being tempted to up the weights once a track started getting easier.but once I did, my body was *screaming* half way through!! Esepcially on upper body work.
Yeah, the shoulders especially is a killer track- I am sticking to the lower weights for that!
I tried the choc mint. I liked it but cocoa orange is still my fave! Mike said it tasted like viscount biscuits and it did a bit hehe
Yum- used to like those viscount biscuit things
