Today is definitely one for battering down the hatches. The rain is pounding against the windows and there is a duvet of grey clouds in the sky. I’m currently hibernating on the sofa with a warm mug of tea as I write and my salted caramel candle is burning making my living room all cosy; I plan to stay here for the rest of the day.
Yesterday was quite the contrary to my sedative state of today. I headed to the gym for an amazing workout, involving a 45 minute cardio session and a strength training session. Then went home to make breakfast:
I defrosted some slices of LivLife bread, which is bread with half of the carbs. This was fantastic topped with Justin’s chocolate almond butter and chopped figs. The Justin’s nut butter is from my latest order and my Lord I had forgotten how addictive this stuff is. I’ve found myself with a spoon in one hand and the jar of nut butter in the other and just eating straight from the jar. Not that I’m complaining as it’s bloody gorgeous, but I think I’m going to have to lock it away somewhere to save me from myself.
After breakfast I popped out to do a spot of shopping and to do the grocery shopping. I ended up being out longer than expected and unprepared without a snack in my bag. By the time I got home I was really hungry and ended up having a late lunch:
I made a three egg omelet stuffed with spring onions and Wensleydale cheese with cranberries and lots of spinach on the side…so good!
In the afternoon I got a couple of hours of work in just so that I have a head start on next week. I finished by 6.00 pm though and had a bit of a pampering session including a long hot shower, moisturizing with coconut oil and a mani- and pedicure.
Dinner was a revisit of an old favourite…socca pizza! It’s been so long since I’ve had one of these. I topped it with vegan pesto, spinach, grilled peppers and tomatoes and roasted chicken.
For dessert I had some stewed plums in gingerbread syrup, 0% Greek yoghurt and mixed nuts. The plums had seen better days so I decided to cook them down in some gingerbread syrup to make a sort of fruit compote. This went perfectly with my big glass of red wine, a great way to end my Saturday night.
