Exercise makes me smile : )

Hello lovelies how are we today I'm A O K!!!!!!!
Wow its been a while since I've felt this good, I think its down to the exercise I did today and
all the fab nutritious food I've eaten. Right I shall start with breakfast, this was kinda weird
and its safe to say I wont be having it again! I made a warm smoothie in today's I added avocado and no chocolate it just didn't work for me but I put some raisins and dessicated (no sugar!) coconut on the top and ate most of it. It was uber filling and got me set for the gym.

I'm still taking it slow because hurting my back again is not an option! I walked to the gym then
started with 20 minutes walking on the treadmill:

I kept the incline at 1.0 for the whole 20mins-
1-2 - 5.5mph
2-5 - 6mph
5-6 - 6.1mph
6-7 - 6.2mph
7-8 - 6.3mph
8-9 - 6.4 mph
9-10 - 6.5mph

I did this twice through without any pain! I then did 20 minutes on the cross trainer. I set it on random level 10 and got a great workout from this. Tummy was next, I did 30 crunches middle and both sides then stretched and went to work feeling fab!

After the gym I ate my boiled egg for a protein kick, boiled to perfection yum!

By 12.30 my tummy was getting peckish so I quietened it down with a green monster this kept my hunger at bay til I got my lunch and 2.15pm

I popped out at lunch and picked up a copy of one of my fav mags and got to work on my lunch.......

I had a snack pack, red pepper sticks and mangetout, rice cakes with vegan cream cheese and an apple, delish. I finished work at 3.30pm today because I had to get home before going to see the back man. Boy oh boy does it KILL when he massages me but its all for the good of my poor back so I take the pain! He says its getting a lot better so fingers crossed it wont be long and I'll be back to my old self.

I was famished by the time I got home and new I needed a filling meal. Tomato and garlic beef mince with parsnip and sweet potato mash n a side of steamed veg which was indeed a filling meal!

Doc says more red meat i.e lamb/venison would be good at least once a week so I need to think of some recipes me thinks.........

Last but not least PUDDING! I had an old favorite tonight, ground rice with carob and dates, topped with Greek yogurt! Yep I've been doing ok with the low lactose milk so I decided to try some Greek yogurt because we got given a giant pot at the show on Sunday and its been fine
I'm real happy about this as I used to love plain yogurt : )

Day 2 of my 3 Months Thin challenge and all's good, I haven't eaten any sugar, no coffee has passed my lips and I have eaten pretty damn well don't ya think?! Plus my 10,000 step challenge has been smashed again I managed 13664!!!!!! I think tomorrow will be less because I have a driving lesson before work so wont get the walk in but I shall pop out on lunch I think so get the steps in, anyways I'm feeling sleepy and my fav trashy TV programme is on soon so I shall say farewell.


Do you find it easy to get your 5 a day?

What do eat more of fruit or veg?

I eat more veg x x


  1. all of your meals look SO good but that dinner and pudding hit it out of the park!

  2. I probably eat more fruit. I should work on that.

  3. I have that exact cup! And I love the pudding...mmmm, yummy! :)

  4. so glad you are feeling better!!! That's good to hear. Your pudding always looks tasty. I think it's pretty easy if it's there and prepped for me :) Some days I don't but that's ok too. Have a good week!

  5. Glad you're feeling so good! How do you make you're green monsters, that one looked chocolatey? Not protein powder is it? If yes which one do you buy? Interrogation!
    As for fruit & veg apparently they recommend 5-10 portions in USA! Actually it's not that difficult- I probably eat like 4 pieces of fruit alone a day and then another 4 of veg maybe? Got to love the healthy goodness. The shepherd's pie type thing looks good (I'd make one with veggie mince though :))

    Love xoxo

  6. Exercise definitely makes me smile too! I eat a completely vegan diet so fruit and veg along with some nuts and whole grains are all I eat. I eat more veg than fruit though because I have spinach in just about everything ( smoothies, salads, wraps, on pizza...) Bananas, apples, and the occasional fruit are the only fruits I eat on a regular basis. Oh forgot about avocado! Do eat a lot of those! I love red pepper sticks as well as a snack as well!
