Yup, that was yesterday. Perhaps it was some kind of payback for Laura commenting that she learnt that running in the rain was not so bad- I agreed, and then of course, it tipped it down! As I was about to leave the clouds were black and Andy told me to take my phone (but I was not taking my belt so it would not fit in any pockets)- so I said to him that if it hailed he could come and get me! As I left it started raining really hard- the rain was going sideways as the wind was blowing so hard and it was stinging my eyes, and it was so hard to run in time as the wind was so strong! I also felt a bit tired, in a can’t-be-bothered mood. After a while the sun came out and it was a bit better, but I really felt like I had heavy legs and the last set of 185 steps per min was really tough. I had nearly talked myself out of yoga, but then I realised I would have to do it another day, and put that on here, so I did it!
I had a tasty dinner of half a baked aubergine with cannelini beans, passata and herbs and stuff, cooked beetroot on top of spinach and sprinkled with food doctor seeds (and topped with nutritional yeast). Yum. The beetroot turned the beans pink too! 🙂
I also had a snack of vanilla alpro, strawberries and some mango macadamia granola. Delish 🙂
Today after seeing Sarah using other dried fruits in her overnight oats, I decided to go with dried apple in my porridge instead of the usual raisins.
OK so it looks horrible, but really it was tasty- the apples plumped up overnight, and of course after being sprinkled with cinnamon everything tastes lovely!
Today I have an early dinner (so eat before body pump, as I did try eating after but by the time I got home it was 9pm and I was starving and felt a bit too weak at pump) so I never normally plan a snack between lunch and dinner. But, this means by the time I get home I am starving, and also get tempted by biscuits in the staffroom, so today I was being prepared (and having never been in the guides it must be impressive that I can be):
The nakd bar was for my morning snack, and the Eat natural mini bar was to have before I came home (to stop me being tempted by goodies in the staffroom- and it worked hooray).
Once home I had some chai tea (called “Baby it’s cold outside”- what a fab name) and an apple to keep me going. 🙂
So, I am already looking forward to the weekend (Silverstone yay!)- Andy is going with his Dad tomorrow to watch the practise sessions, and I am off to the waffle house (hoping that more people turn up this time hee hee)- it is going to be brilliant! Ear plugs at the ready 🙂
So, any exciting weekend plans ?
