Photo Overload!

Yay! My photos have uploaded! That's lots of photos too, hope your ready for my uber photo post! It seems you can understand my sadness when the mac doesn't want to play ball.

So lets start with today shall we, and what a fab day I have had. I woke up early and discovered
an email from this lovely lady telling me I had won this fabulous giveaway! I can't believe it,
this is my first giveaway winning and what a great first it is! I made an egg to give me gym
energy then walked to the gym to get a workout in before work

20 minutes cross trainer
sets of squats, lunges and free weights
10 minutes stepper
crunches
stretch

I arrived at work to find my maca parcel had arrived! Yay I love the malty taste of maca

I bought some more powder and also decided to try these maca chips I'll let ya know how they go

I was pretty hungry after my workout so I popped to marks and sparks to get a fruit tray including grapes, mango and pineapple slices to accompany my first.........

Breakfast Cookie! I based my recipe on this one but changed it round a little. Yummy thus was so good I will definitely making this again, its perfect for breakfast on the go. Work ticked over during the morning and got busy over lunch, I hate it when that happens!

When I finally got lunch it was worth the wait. GF toasted hummus sarni with raw veggies

Followed by a protein bar. This is such a good lunch, fills me up till dinner.
I got a lift home after work as I had so much stuff to carry, I bought loads today, veggies, milk
my maca......

I made some soup when I got in and before whizzing it up I decided to have some with my beef mince in tomato and chili sauce it was a great dinner indeed

swede cabbage and celery curried yum

Pud - choco protein ground rice topped with milk and a spoon of almond butter, goooooooood!

I have the day off tomorrow and have a driving test plus need to right up the last of my 6th assignment. My dad has also offered to give me his free weights so we're digging them out of storage : )

Questions:

Do you use maca?

I do and I love it! I'm also hoping it will help with my crazy hormones!

Favorite sandwich filling?

I hardly ever eat them but lately I've been getting down with hummus and its a winner!

  4. I've never tried maca. Heck, I'm not even sure exactly what it is! *googles maca* :P

    My favorite sandwich filling is peanut butter and banana...preferably grilled! The ultimate comfort food, in my opinion!

  7. I haven't tried maca yet! I'm trying not to spend money on those things unless I really need too. I still have a bag of chia seeds I bought last year that never got used :P

    Favourite sandwich filling at the moment is protein powder goo!! I need to think of a better name for that though....

    LOVE the breakfast cookie. It's been way too long since I had one of those. And your protein bar looks awesome!
