Another 6am start. Before heading out the door I started a loaf of bread in the breadmaker, then set off for a walk with the dogs. I was rather underdressed this morning as it was quite cold outside. It was still nice but my ears hurt by the time I got back. I warmed up with a cup of tea and a couple of crusktis and spreadable cheese.
Later I had a most unusual breakfast. A lentil pattie topped with BBQ sauce, a sprinkling of grated cheese and some tomatoe slices. Yum, yum!
Once I dropped the girls at school (had to drive them today as both are under the weather) I headed to the gym for my cardio workout. I did 20mins on the eliptical and 20mins on the bike. It was a hard slog but I got it done and burnt up over 380cal in the process.
Came home just in time to catch the delivery man delivering my new pots :-).
After my shower I enjoyed a green smoothie.
The only problem with doing such a workout is that I really am quite exhausted for some time afterwards. I did manage to cook some quinoa in my new pot for todays lunch, do a bit of ironing and I also sewed up a breadbag.
Around 1pm I was hungry enough for lunch. I had the red quinoa I’d cooked earlier, the last of the roast vegetables and some tofu with ketsup manis (love this). I ended up leaving a bit of everything.
Around 4pm I had some vegetable soup and corn thins with hummus.
Then it off to the groceries while Christy was at singing lessons. Back home I was rather hungry and dinner was not quite ready, so I finished off the hummus with a handful of vegetable tortilla chips.
Dinner tonight was Caribbean, Sweet Potato and Kidney Bean Hotpot. I didn’t have any curry so used cumin. I also subbed four bean mix for the red kidney beans, and served with some basmati rice. It was delicious.
