Leftovers = Easy

Hello Monday readers how's it going?! Did you have the day off? Or were you unlucky like me and had to work?

I woke up early to get my bag ready for the gym before work and also to pack lunch/breakfast.
For breakfast I made some low carb muesli mixed with soya yogurt and blueberries.

I also used the last of my cocoa almond butter from Deb's I'm definitely sorry to see that go!
I ate half of my breakfast before walking to the gym. I had a great workout today which was totally pain free whoop whoop!

15 minutes - cross trainer - intervals
25 minutes - arm weights - squats - lunges
2o minutes - treadmill - 2 min walk 6.5mph - 16 min run 8mph - 2 min walk 5.5mph
plank 1 minute
stretch

I had a FREEZING cold shower after my workout then sat in the morning sun to warm up and eat the other half of my breakfast, delish.

Work was kinda busy but boring so I was glad when it was time to have lunch. I had the best lunch LEFTOVERS! I love it when there are tasty leftovers it makes lunch so easy.

Ham salad with grated carrot, rocket, cucumber and the last of my yummy potato salad : )

I had 3 mixed berry oatcakes after, love these!

After work I went out for a drive with my friend, I so can't wait to pass my test now!

Soup for dinner with steamed broccoli and two oatcakes with homemade smoked mackerel pate.

This pate is easy to make and very very tasty!

Smoked Mackerel Pate

1 smoked mackerel fillet
1 tbsp soya yogurt
ground black pepper

And that's it! I'm pretty tired and I gotta wash the locks so good night peeps x x

Question:

When's you favorite workout time?

I find working out in the morning suits me best, as much as I love to exercise I find my morning workouts are much better than in the afternoon

P.S coconut n chocolate ground rice pudding maybe in my future............

  3. I don't know of anyone who had today off. I'm not certain but I don't think it's common in the US for ppl to have Easter Monday off.

    I like working out in the afternoon. But on the weekends, I prefer the a.m. since I can sleep in AND get it over with first thing.

  4. Oh Monday! I had to work today too. Seems like everyone is still on vaca though, so it wasn't too bad. Your oat cakes always look so tasty. I prefer mixing it up with half evening half morning workouts. I love the extra time I have at night when I work out in the morning though.

  5. I had yesterday off but am sorry to hear that you had to work..
    Working out in the mornings is great because you get the evenings off (as Erica said) but I also like going on a run after work for example as it relaxes me a lot :).
