30 Day Shred

Marmite it seems is like by most who have tried it but many of you haven't come across it. Marmite taste like vegemite kinda, its quite salty and strong in taste. I agree with Theresa, its defo good if your feeling sick, marmite in toast is the perfect remedy I also agree with Adrien its great if you have a hangover! So the saying 'you love it or you hate it' is perfect really, if you see it you gotta try it! I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one with a vampire fetish too!

Today was a my day off : ) I woke up and had a big smoothie and boiled egg then it was off to my early driving lesson. I did bay parking today

After my lesson I had a big old cuppa coffee to gear me up for my new fitness dvd

Yep I invested in Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred! I've heard some great reports on this bad boy so thought I'd give it a go. I did 40 minutes (level 1 + 2) I had to modify some bits as the back is definitely not fixed yet but it felt good to get sweaty!

I grabbed a snack before running a hot relaxing bath, water + protein bar

I usually always shower but sometimes a deep hot bath is needed, today it was needed and I had a relaxing read in my hot bath, twas lovely!

My lunch just had to include some marmite after all the talking about it! I made walnut butter and marmite sarnis

I ate them with a big bowl of soup and some beets

I made some more protein bars today and after lunch ate the slithers of the end

To be honest these aren't that great so I wont be posting a recipe

I went to meet my friend from work and we went to see Valentines Day! Oh my god if you haven't seen this film go, its soooooooo funny and sweet, I loved it!

I was starving when I got back from the cinema, I needed a quick meal. I got this new curry paste today so thought I'd try it for dinner

I made soya mince with steamed veg and mushrooms in a tom and curry sauce. WOW that is some hot sauce. I definitely only need half a tsp next time!

I had some hummus to cool down the heat! I enjoyed the meal though

I needed a cool pudding to chill my mouth, I made some strawberry iced mouse with some chopped dates

This was cooling on my burning tongue!

I knackered so gotta sleep x x

Questions:

Have you tried 30 day shred, what did you think?

I really liked it and can't wait to be able to do all the moves

Whats your favorite hot (in flavor) food?

Mine is definitely curry, I also like the odd dollop of horseradish too!

  1. I haven't tried 30-day shred, but am so intrigued- I'm a fitness dvd addict and I don't know how I haven't managed to get my hands on this one.. are you in love or what?!

    My fave hot food has to be chili- or anything kind of tex mex.

    It always takes me a bit of time to click and realize you're in the UK, but I must tell you- we used to have a Marks and Spencer in Victoria, but it left- with all of it's humbugs and now whenever someone from my family heads to Europe they always come back with about 5 bags- you have no idea how lucky you are!

  2. Mmm I love green thai curry! I actually was just Thailand and took a cooking class and we made our own green curry paste using a mortar and pestle and it was SO FUN!

  3. Girl, I'm *really* loving your blog right now! I especially love your eats - they're unlike anything I see on the other blogs.

    Question: how do you make your smoothies and mousse? They look so thick and delish! I'd love to know your secret ;)

  7. I started the 30 days shred a few weeks ago but had to stop because my laptop is broken and I can't play American dvds with my lame DVD player.. :( But I agree: it's a great workout!
    Curries are fantastic indeed even though they don't make them that hot in some places over here! I also love hot mexican food.
