Rain rain go away!

Standard

It was absolutely bucketing it down today. White blouse + heavy rain = a very poor candidate for a wet t-shirt competition!!!

I’ll start by recapping on yesterday.

Had an awesomely sweaty workout first thing, burning muscles a-plenty.

Breakfast was smoked salmon and scrambled egg served on spinach. Yum!

I wore this dress to work, I love this dress, I found it in a second hand shop whilst in London and fell in love with it.

Lunch was a concoction of smoked salmon, cauliflower rice (I love this stuff!!!), spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers and olives with an egg.

Snack was a posh version of apple and walnuts- on a plate!

Dinner as you know was my lovely courgette spaghetti! Honestly, it was simply beautiful. I can see I’m going to have to ration this so as not to eat it 50 times a week!!! The pesto recipe I used is here, I used less garlic though and you don’t need the nutritional yeast.

Tonnes of water and herbal teas yesterday, I do love my tea 🙂

I went to a friends last night for a catch up and I ate a whole bloody bag of mini poppadom snacks! Felt so sick afterwards and had a bit of an upset tummy. Serves me right for being a glutton!

Breakfast today was a green juice followed by some hard boiled eggs. Sounds odd I know but my tummy still felt a bit delicate so didn’t want to overload it.

Huge mug of hot water and juice of half a lemon.

Boring outfit of a white blouse and black trousers today (I do love my colour) but added a bit of a zing with this necklace. This is from Hawaii and is made of Kuku nuts, my Dad bought this for me. Purple is my favourite colour 🙂

Lunch was a salad of spinach, tomatoes, cucumber, yellow pepper, olives, a hard boiled egg and pesto mayo.

I was directed to this link for 60 second mayo last night and I made it! Yummy and it really did take 60 seconds! I mixed homemade pesto into the mayo for a different flavour. The pesto I made last night was this recipe, really easy (again- I used less garlic though and you don’t need the nutritional yeast) You may have detected a theme here- I like easy!!!

Snack was celery sticks with homemade almond butter- so so easy. T’was very tasty. If you haven’t tried celery and nut butter you must!

This evening I went to Pilates after work, I love Pilates, always feel so stretched out afterwards, not to mention the burning core. Pilates was fab! We were doing press ups and variations of and I was the only one doing full press ups!!

Today I also did 10 minutes of full on intervals at the gym on the stationary bike of 20 seconds 85% effort and 20 seconds 35% effort. Sweaty mess! I also did my second run this week, I did it on the treadmill and went reeeeeally slow and only ran 1.5 miles. So far so good. Am very aware that the half marathon is creeping ever closer!! And I finally did a 15 minute dumbbell workout.I feel so energised when I do exercise that I really feel it when I don’t do any for a while. Do you feel like that? Obviously I make sure I rest as well 🙂 

Dinner was prawn curry served with cauliflower rice. This was absolutely delicious, and even better I didn’t cook!! Rob cooked it and has said it is a secret recipe, haha! How funny! It was really yummy though, I’ll have to tell him to make it more often 😀

I have booked in for my first ever Body Pump class! The only one I can really go to is on a Wednesday night and that is normally when I have swim training, but I haven’t signed up for the training over the summer so I have Wednesday nights free! How very exciting! So that will be next Wednesday. Have you tried Body Pump? What do you think?

I am planning on having a giveaway soon and I am super super excited about the bits and pieces!!!

Tomorrow is Friday, have a good one 😀
