This week seems to have really dragged on, don’t you think? It has been a good week for me though, having cleared some shit from my personal life, saw some major progress with my running heart rate, arranged some fun meet ups with friends, re-joined the gym and re-discovered my missing mojo.
What’s going on in blog world at the moment?
- Well, lovely Gym Ninja is having a hard time at present, so I’m sure you will join me in sending her a big hug. As she doesn’t have comments enabled on her blog, if you want to leave her a supportive message on this post, I’ll make sure she reads them.
- Laura has posted some fabulous new recipes for you all to try, which has hopefully distracted her from her broken laptop.
- Gina is having a ball in the Bahamas.
- Katie made raw chocolate cheesecake – droooooooool!
I had a good day today, having found my missing mojo – hurrah! After my workout in the gym, I had a lovely relax in the sauna and it really did feel like I had come home. A few of the staff members said they were pleased to see me and asked where I had been, along with a couple of regulars, with one of them commenting how it was good to see I was still in shape – I’m always happy to hear a compliment :-D
I’ve had another good day food wise, second day in a row with no crap – amazing what a boost the gym has given me! My macros are still not where I want them to be but as I said yesterday, I’m focussing on eating well and eating regularly at the moment.
Breakfast was my usual bowl of porridge, topped with Greek yoghurt, blackberries, strawberries & pecans.
Mid morning was a latte, made with semi skimmed milk
I was unsure what to make for lunch as I forgot to defrost my chicken breast to make a salad and I had no tuna so I took 3 eggs and a wholemeal pitta and made an egg puff ala Fitnessista which I stuffed into the pitta and munched. It was actually very tasty and filling!
After the gym, I continued my love affair with Dr Karg…
And for a protein boost, I ate 2 babybel light..
Dinner was a delicious lamb chilli with brown basmati rice. I don’t often eat carbs with dinner but as it was my post workout meal, I went for it.
After dinner, I was craving something sweet and I remembered spotting a protein popsicle in the freezer a few days ago – yay!
