Monday May 2 2016

Well, it was almost a struggle to sit down and write this update! 

The other half and I decided to venture to the gym today as the weather was grotty, which made us decide we didn't want to go off on a long walk for fear of being caught in an almighty rain storm! As a result, leg day happened, and now my thighs, butt and legs are on fire. But, it's that good "I did something" kinda pain! Especially as I smashed my previous personal best on the Leg Press machine, managing 52kg!

Even took a picture, I was so proud of myself!

Pretty happy with my food choices today too:

Breakfast: 1 slice of toast with marmite

Lunch: Tesco sweet chilli chicken noodle salad with a packet of wotsits and a bottle of Trop50 orange and mango juice (all this came in at under 450 calories - BONUS!)

Surprisingly filling actually - and tasted good too!

Dinner: Mexican chicken again tonight - I will pop up a recipe for this, because honestly it's so filling and so tasty!

Nothing like some colourful veg to make you feel good!
So all in all, I'd say I had a very successful and productive Bank Holiday Monday! (I also cleaned the hob and it's now gleaming - it's the little things in life)!

I'm looking forward to getting back into a normal routine from tomorrow and introducing my new healthy choices into everyday life!

What are your plans or goals for the week? Let's chat!

Ciao for now!

Sunday May 1 2016

Can you believe it's May already?! I know - neither can I! Especially with today's somewhat cold, overcast weather! 

Today myself and my partner have been gardening (a rarity in our household)! Definitely a good workout though; and the garden looks much better for it!

Overview of today's food:

Breakfast: None! This is my worst habit - I really need to teach myself to eat breakfast. Maybe it will be my May resolution!

Lunch: Ham and cucumber sandwich on seeded batch bread 

Dinner: We're having a jacket potato with a nice big salad :)

Water: 1.5 litres but I've just got myself another bottle so on track for two litres!

Other than gardening, today has been pretty non-eventful, and therefore this is a bit of a short update!

Tomorrow there are two posts scheduled, so make sure to check back in! 

Ciao for now!
