What more baking?

Yes I am afraid that is how I spend my days!

But first I decided to get rid of my old trainers as during my run yesterday it felt more like they were made of cardboard than rubber or anything. (To be fair they have done over 600 miles, well, I say they have done it, I have actually run that far but while wearing them) so I took out the sensor and put it in my new shoes.

Now I have a run planned for tomorrow morning, and have just seen that it is supposed to be raining- so they are going to get wet. But I must not be precious about my shoes- they cannot stay pristine forever! I will always have this picture anyway!!

Also now exciting news is that I am back to having tea- big news I know! I popped to see my Mum this morning and even had a cup of tea there- all is fine on that front I feel ๐Ÿ™‚

Lunch was delicious- I saw these Food Doctor pittas and decided to try them- they are wholegrain and have seeds and whatnot- turns out they are delicious too! I can’t believe all these years I have been putting up with supermarket wholemeal ones. These are the business!

The combo of cream cheese and beetroot was too good to miss (I think if I made this to take to work it would be a soggy purple mess by lunch so I am taking advantage of the holidays)- plus some sweet chilli oat bites. These were not very spicy at all- I much prefer the onion ones I had the other day.

I have been getting busy in the kitchen again;

And with the creation of the pumpkin tofu pasta, there is still some pumpkin puree left, so I might attempt pumpkin cookies later in the week. Or I may just add it to my porridge.

I also made some spiced nuts and some brownie cupcakes (recipe to follow) for when I have some friends over tomorrow. Although I dropped one of the cupcakes on the floor, face down, when I was putting them in the tin- booo.

Mid afternoon was a snack ofย a Mule bar and some mint tea;

Now I am back on the tea I can start trying out the cosy teas- hooray ๐Ÿ™‚ The Peppermint one was lovely- not too strong a minty taste but light and refreshing. The Mule bar was quite nice, but very sweet tasting- I preferred the apple flavour (shame they don’t do those ones in tescos) but this one was still good and provided me with some energy for aerobics.

Aerobics was hard work, but it is hard to take it easier (unlike running when you can slow down, you have to move with the music and keep up with the line)- some good tunes helped though.

My late night snack was scrumptious;

Some muesli topped with vanilla alpro and a little blob of my home-made chocolate pb (which I did keep in the fridge in the end). Scrummy ๐Ÿ™‚

I am off to cross my fingers that it does not rain too much tonight- night ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Funny that, with the trainers. If I get a white pair I’m usually really keen to get them a bit grubby and feel self conscious at their brightness; though once they get grubby I fell self conscious in wearing them to the gym…

  2. Aww, I’m really precious about new shoes too. It always seems to rain whenever I get a new pair (4-500 miles for me…mine are totally knackered come 600 miles!)

    Yay for a return to your tea-drinking ways too ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Rob- I never thought of it that way around! I suppose once they are muddy it is like proof that I use them to run in!
    Laura- love the idea of pitta pizzas- although it reminds me of Home Ec at school- we always seemed to make pizzas like that.
    Ffion- yeah try one it was amazing ๐Ÿ™‚
    Jemma- I had a brownie cupcake today and I was not dissapointed.

  4. Yaay for new trainers! You made me laugh with your little pep-talk to yourself on not being precious about them too. I’m like that, which is crazy, because they are inevitably going to get messed up! They do look so pretty when they’re new though. And I love the purple..

    Ooh, maybe I’ll treat myself to some new ones too! ๐Ÿ™‚

    ps — I love beetroot sandwiches!

    1. Well I do get a bit obsessed with keeping them looking all nice,which is silly as I run around a park and in muddy puddles all the time. Good old sweatshop sale is all I can say!
