I Heart Sweet Potatoes!

Good afternoon, its a rainy Saturday here in Bournemouth how is it for you?
We have that horrible light dusty rain that soaks you in minutes, not good when you've just straightened ya hair I can tell ya!

I was supposed to go out for a run this morning but the weather was really bad then so I decided to give it a miss, I may still venture out but no promises!

I've been playing with photo booth on my mac I wanted a new facebook profile picture!

I woke up early like usual (damn body clock!) and waited a while for breakfast then when hunger got the better of me I whipped up a yum yum yummy smoothie!

Blueberry & Vanilla Smoothie

1/2 c. soya milk
1/2 c. water
15 small ice cubes
1 scoop vanilla soy protein powder
1/2 c. blueberries
1tsp maca powder
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp xanthan gum
1/2 tsp guar gum

Topping - Coconut + Cinnamon - but anything goes really your choice

all in the smoothie maker whiz and enjoy I did!

Me and Emma decided to pop into town around lunch time and before we went I ate a couple of oat cakes with tahini (new addiction alert!!!!!)

I was kinda peckish when we got to town, having lots of food at home though I didn't wanna spend lots on a lunch out but we did decide a costa was in order : )
I finally tried a frescato for all my sins! I had a soy milk and coffee frescato and boy am i glad I did it was sooooooooo good! Worth the £2.95 I paid for it?!

We walked down to the seafront to see if there were any planes flying about but the weather got the better of us and we headed home...........

By the time we got back it was 3pm and I was ready for lunch, I picked up a sweet pot yesterday at tesco and new exactly what I wanted for lunch. Look at my heart shaped potato how cool,
I heart sweet potatoes

I also had a pot of reduced fat tuna mayo and sweetcorn which made a perfect topping : )

I also had some salad, I put my meal on a small side plate so I didn't go over board on the amount of food I ate and it did the trick I was definitely satisfied but not bloated : )

More photo booth playing!

Everyone on the course is going out tonight and as i said on my last post I had decided to stay in it seems they want me to go out, I just can't decide do i wanna hit the town and go dancing i do and I don't..........arrrrrgggggghhhhh what to do!?

Maybe if the rain clears and i can get a run in I'll go or maybe I'll go anyway or maybe I'll just stay in! Sorry enough now I'll let ya know what I did tomorrow!


Are you going out tonight?

I is I isn't who knows not me!!!!!!! x x


  1. I've never had a frescato, I love iced coffee though, what's it like?

  2. I have decided not to go out tonight. It was a tough decision that I've been debating since last night! But I was out last night and I've been busy all day, and I have a breakfast date with my sister so . . .

    God I feel old!

  3. have fun tonight if you do go out! i'm a home bird today, couch and jammies x

  4. Wondering if your decided to go out now! I stayed in and watched Twilight New Moon and ate huge amounts of banana and date softserve! Pity you had crappy weather. I must try one of those frescatos with soy milk, sounds yummy!

  5. I just came across your blog, and I'm liking what I see!

    It's never occurred to me before to top a sweet potato with tuna. I'll have to give that a shot some time, as I love both!

  6. Hello La Historiadora de moda, thank you for your kind words x x
