Sweet Saturday

So glad I’m almost 100% again – just have a runny nose and a bit of a cough. Got up just before 7am and headed to the gym for a cardio workout. Did 20mins on the elliptical and 10min on the bike. Came home and had some cruskits with spreadable cheese.

A few hours later I made some breakfast. Today we (well Kevin and I) had scrambled eggs, baked beans and mushrooms.

We had been going to go on an adventure walk today but the girls were bickering so we decided not to bother. Instead we had a day at home – and I pretty much finished off plans for our trip.

The others had a jaffle for lunch but I opted for a salad with falafel and hummus.

I definitely had a case of the muchies with afternoon/evening :-(.

Terrific Thursday

Woke up this morning feeling very much like my normal self (but with a runny nose and croaky voice). I was going to take the dogs on a walk but then thought I could take them on walk after dropping the girls at school. Much better than braving the cold morning air.

I went downstairs for a cup of tea, showered, dressed and had some breakfast. I finally got around to eating 1/2 of the breakfast cookie I made the other day. It was a little on the dry side but still okay.

I got my bag all packed with water for both myself and the dogs… and I threw in a nut bar just in case.

We had a fantastic walk, which you can read all about here. It took us about an hour and ten minutes and I was exhausted and happy at the end. Will definitely do this again.

Came home and enjoyed a green smoothie.

I then got busy in the kitchen – making potato and leek soup, zucchini slice (for tonights dinner) and some of Angela’s Tropical Muffins.

Lunch was the last of the Mushroom Rissoto.

Had an easy afternoon. Enjoyed some soup for afternoon tea.

Followed by the last of the oatmeal cookies.

and a handful of tiny teddies…

The girls had singing lessons this afternoon. I wanted something when I was out but knew dinner was ready when we got home. Just had to prep some veggies.

Supper was, predictably, a tropical muffin. Oh, and a smidge of lemon fudge.

Tropical Muffins

Kevin and Amy were off for a day painting his office but they were kind enough to wait till I got back from the gym. Before I left I had a snack of corn thins with cottage cheese. I wasn’t really in the mood to eat just yet but knew it would be best before such an intense workout.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been on a Saturday morning and I surprised to have the cardio room to myself. It was just after opening at 7am but I was still suprised. I did 20min on the elliptical and 20mins on the bike. Back home I cooled down and had a shower. Around 9am Christy woke up so I made her some french toast for breakfast and I had an egg on toast with a cup of tea.

Since breakfast had been so late I didn’t bother with a morning snack, instead I had a very punctual lunch of leftover salad, a heaping of hummus, a boiled egg and slice of turkish bread.

IMG_0154

I really thought I’d be wanting to eat today but I wasn’t bothered. I had some grapes around 3pm.

IMG_0166

Then around 4pm a tropical muffin as seen on Oh She Glows. Yummy and healthy! Kevin and Amy enjoyed them too.

Around 5.30pm I was hungry but with dinner time fast approaching I decided on a green smoothie as I was a bit low of fruit & veg today.

IMG_0172

Of course, then I didn’t get hungry again. Amy had eaten around 6pm and Kevin wasn’t feeling too well so eventually around 7pm I decided to have my dinner. It was Mexican Rice – brown rice, TVP, corn, black beans and seasoning- topped with tomato and some sour cream. It was a little bland though and I didn’t really enjoy it much. I ate about 2/3.

Freaky Friday

A lovely morning walk – though a good bit chillier this morning. I’m in a bit of a slump because my weight loss is VERY slow and at the rate I’m going I will NOT fit into my jeans before our trip. And buying another pair isn’t another option – I’ve tried but I’m right in between sizes. The next size up are too big. I don’t want to gain weight so I therefore, have to lose a bit of weight – only about 4kgs so it’s still doable but I need to get a move along. Not that you’d think so by todays eats :-(.

There was other stuff conveniently not photographed :-). Not good. Definitely not the way to be fitting in my jeans, and hardly a fruit or veggie to be seen.
