I had a fairly lazy day today and I enjoyed it very much. I began the day with a swim; 1.2 km (60 x 20m lengths) of breaststroke, front crawl and backstroke. I really enjoyed the swim today and then relaxed in the outside jacuzzi and the sauna.
I went for a coffee at Rebecca’s afterwards and stayed a while, sketching and chatting while she worked on some ceramics.I went home for lunch and was pleased to have some leftover Nasi Goreng for lunch. I added some extra spinach and cabbage when I warmed it up and served it with sprouted seeds for additional nutrition . This is mainly free and speed foods (rice, smoked tofu, onion, butternut squash, aubergine, green beans, chilli, spring onion, coriander and Thai basil) but I did cook the Nasi Goreng with oil (I estimate 1 tbsp so 6 syns).
Now I should really have got on with some chores this afternoon but instead I chose to potter about in Hastings Old Town with Rebecca and Fanny.
We walked down via the West Hill; a lovely walk with gorgeous views.
I love the brick walls, the higgledy piggledy rooves, varied architectural styles, twittens and alleyways. We emerged on the High Street.
We pottered along the High Street and then turned in to Courthouse Street which has an alternative and holistic health shop; Bio-five-O. They stock supplements and several ethical brands which was good to know and I treated myself to some new make up as well as some essentials. Everything I bought was vegan friendly.
We also went to one of the vintage/bric-a-brac shops which was much larger than I expected.The shop went on and on.We ended up on George Street and this one of my very favourite shops – reste. I managed to resist buying anything today. By the time I got home I had walked over 10,000 steps!
Back at home I ate some cashew nuts and almonds (HE B) while I made a light supper of steamed and boiled vegetables with gravy. My Dad would not be impressed at me using a packet gravy but as a vegan, it is much harder to make gravy properly! I enjoyed my very simple supper of boiled potato and green beans, steamed carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and brussel sprouts. 3 syns for the gravy.
So a good day of eating with 9 syns plus excellent exercise as I swam 1.2 km and walked over 10,00 steps, some of which was up hills.
I am however worried about weigh day tomorrow as I have had some bad days of eating this week. I have kept up a good level of exercise but over-eaten the wrong type of food.
