I managed to eat well and exercise today plus eat out and resist amazing cakes and spend a couple of hours in the pub with just one glass of wine. All that temptation was resisted which is very pleasing but best of all I have had a lovely day.
I began with hot water and lemon followed by fresh mint in hot water. No time for the ginger shot today as Harvey and I had to be out quite early but I did manage to make my juice. All these fruits and veggies made the breakfast and supper juices which I was meant to blend with the avocado. I didn’t have time to blend with the avocado for breakfast or supper but the juices were very tasty anyway and I am sure I can make good use of the avocado tomorrow. I just had a small glass of green juice in the morning.
Harvey wanted to eat out for lunch so I thought we could treat ourselves and we headed in to Cranbrook to Cocolicious – have a look at their Facebook site here; https://www.facebook.com/pages/Cocolicious/371061445937
This is the counter inside Cocolicious which is full of completely amazing cakes to tempt you. I managed to resist all the cakes and didn’t even try Harvey’s delicious chocolate cake. I enjoyed a decent coffee. I enjoyed being with one of my favourite dining companions. And I really enjoyed these 2 salads; Chinese 5 spice chicken with asparagus, red cabbage, fennel and soya dressing and the grilled aubergine with chick peas and swiss chard with paprika and cumin dressing.Harvey had a taste of the chicken salad and enjoyed it so much he had a portion and then asked the owner when the chicken salad would next be on the menu. Apparently I have “so got to make that at home” one day very soon! I will give it a go little fella.
I then set off to play in a tennis match; it was the first round of the local club’s annual tournament. It was a perfect evening for tennis as it was mild, still (ie no wind) and bright. My tennis partner Annette and I
were up against these two very formidable opponents. Anyone local who knows Jane and Ginny may be impressed to know we did get a few
sets, games, points off them! It was an absolute pleasure to play against them and even more of a pleasure to share some wine with them in our local pub afterwards. The Milk House has become quite the place to go on a Friday evening and I saw lots of the local lovelies in there.
Back at home I enjoyed some celery and Camembert as I felt rather hungry, it was quick and easy and had no flour in it so I stuck to my rules.
