Hey guys, hooray for Friday and all. I was up super early this morning to try to get some Olympic tickets (didn’t get any the first time round). I got a confirmation code, so am keeping my fingers crossed. Anyone else tried this time around?
Anyway, first up, last night was the new body pump. I was not that excited by the music- one track was “Sweet child of mine” which I know will get on my nerves as I am not a fan of it. There was a Pink song (I think? Something about raising your glass- is that Pink?), but nothing that I was excited for right away. Anyway, it was good- hard work (the lunges have a load of squats in there too, and you do the hover at the end with feet on the step- crazy I have never done that before), but I am getting more and more stiff today!
I have been using stuff from the freezer (I love to buy bags of frozen blueberries, raspberries, cherries, blackberries, plus I freeze bananas once they go a bit brown, so there is a lot of fruit in there that needs eating), so here are some pics from the last few days:
Frozen raspberries (80g) whizzed up with a pot of chocolate alpro. Yummylicious. Seriously if you have not tried this, the do. Frozen raspberries on their own once whizzed up go like sorbet, but the chocolate and raspberry combo is amazing. But any thing would do – I have done it with yoghurt and stuff too.
Banana mashed with cocoa and tsp peanut butter, topped with a pear (great post body pump snackage).
Porridge with blueberries- I love how purple it goes 🙂
Blueberry porridge in pb jar. It was really pretty-purple and peanut stripes, but it did not come out.
So what would you do with frozen fruit? Smoothies? Add to muffins? (I love frozen blueberries in muffins). Other???
I am also excited as I have received a couple of packages;
Some lovely Righteous salad dressing (the raspberry and sweet basil looks so good, and it is fruity you see, so it fits). I am so excited to try these!
And some lovely coconut water! It is supposed to be hot this weekend so I shall need it 🙂
I am also so excited because for the first time in so long (seriously I cannot remember the last time) I do not have any work to do at the weekend!!!!!!! I am so excited!!!!!! What on earth will I do with my Saturday afternoon? Well, I am hoping to have a run in the morning, and then maybe sit in the garden in the afternoon! And maybe some baking for Sunday of course. Big plans I know! 🙂
So, any plans for tomorrow/ the weekend?
