Yesterday I got most of this post ready to publish before bed and then forgot! What can I say, I’m not used to this posting every day habit. At least one good thing about blogging my daily food is that there is always something to blog about it.
So yesterday started with a lowly apple and some almond butter pre-gym,
My hip’s feeling so much better so I figured it’d be ok to workout as long as it’s a joint-easy session. And indeed it was as when I arrived at the gym ALL the cardio machines were out of use, apart from the rower. I’m not a massive rowing fan and was really looking forward to some time on the cross-trainer and bike. Not to worry, expectations were duly adjusted and instead 20 minutes was spent rowing. Time went quite quickly, thankfully! I also went on a couple of weight restistance machines and did some ab work (I made a stupid bet with a friend that means for the first time in years i’m working on my abs). On my return it was veggie juice time…
I haven’t had one of these for at least a week so it was majorly overdue.
Fast forward to lunch time when I was ravenous…
I’m not sure what bread this was- it was a back of the freezer find. One is topped with hummus, the other marmite =love (two-thirds of a slice was consumed with hummus prior to the photo and a load of carrots and hummus).
After lunch was the sweet stuff. Hannah, this one’s for you 🙂
Naturally more chocolate than this was consumed… For you guys who blog about your daily food, do you really take photos of and record every bit of food that passes your lips??? I’m not sure I can do that since I’m always munching whilst making breakfast, lunch or dinner… So far, I’m only featuring the highlights on these pages.
Post-lunch was studying that turned into a nap! I hate napping in the afternoon because I always wake up stressed. Stressed that I’ve slept, and annoyed that I haven’t been able to achieve what I planned to (I’m into planning). This makes me realise how important it is to adjust our expectations and be flexible in order to minimise the stress we experience in our lives. I think that’s my tip of the day! I woke up just in time for Tom to return from work and go for a run (him not me) before this evening’s shenanigans i.e. a BBQ with Tom’s boss, colleagues and partners. Since I’ve been burned recently by the old gluten I packed myself the following:
Roasted veg, which went from this,
It always amazes me how such a large quantity of veg can reduce to half the size after roasting. And large tupperware boxes are such a mainstay in my life.
Here are my salad toppers. I know I’m eating pretty much the same as last night but when you’re taking packed lunch for dinner, creativity isn’t a priority.
Tom and I went for a lovely stroll in the evening sunshine, and stopped off at a pub en route to the BBQ for a glass of vino and crisps (forgot the camera so there are no more pics from this point onwards). When we arrived at the BBQ more hummus, carrots, crisps and wine were consumed as well as olives and my packed dinner. You’d think I’d be tired of hummus by today but I most certainly am not (I know there are others out there who feel the same love for hummus… Elise, for example). I am a bit crisp-ed out though.
There we go for a second day of eats! I shall see you later with more food and fun…
