2 days eating and exercise in one post today. I was out last night hence no blog and this will be brief as I am very tired and actually want nothing more than to curl up in bed with my book. It is sub zero out there but I have managed to eat salads and plenty of other healthy food. It was minus 5 this morning, according to my car thermometer! Some bad food too !
While I was waiting at Monmouth on Tuesday morning for my once a week latte, the Ginger Pig van arrived and 4 porters scurried around unloading it. Rather them than me.
At lunch time I walked over London Bridge to the North side of the river and back, whch is at least a mile. For lunch I went to Pret and bought a chicken soup
I was out last night visiting some one I am extremely fond of and who is very special to me. Gail, who we met when she became our au pair when we were children. I hadn’t realised how close she lives to my office. I thought she was nearer Charing Cross but I was wrong and it only took me about 10-15 minutes to walk there. I am going again! We had a very cosy cup of tea and flapjack beside the fire and then headed out for supper.
We went out for tapas round the corner and ordered 4 dishes which we shared: tortilla, garlic prawns, grilled vegetable salad and spinach with raisins and pine nuts. It was all good and the prawns and spinach were fantastic.
Now this was naughty. One scoop of salted caramel ice-cream and one scoop of lime and cactus. Both were really good. To aid digestion we had a glass of red wine too.
I popped round the corner for lunch with Kevin to the usual – TAS cafe. I had 3 salads: spinach and apple, chick pea and tzatziki (yogurt and cucumber).
The spinach and apple is my favourite. They use a green apple which tastes fantastic with the spinach plus sesame seeds for protein. Really good.
I was very tired when I got home. Today was challenging for a variety of reasons so I wanted to eat quickly. In to the pan went a huge amount of kale, left over quinoa tabboule from Saturday, 2 eggs and some smoked salmon.
So there it is. 2 days eating. Trying hard to stay healthy in such freezing weather when you really want hot chocolate and hearty stews and warming carbs. I am not on top of my points. Last night I was not sure how to work them out and today I was tracking until lunch time and then too busy tonight. I know for sure that I was over yesterday but I am quite confident I am ok today so hopefully it balances out.
So there we are. Now I am off to bed with The Hundred Year Old Man Who Jumped Out Of The Window. Good night!
