Didn’t sleep too great again last night but I treated it as an excuse to get up early and breakfast early so I could 30 Day Shred again before going out for a walk this morning. That was the 4th or 5th time I’ve shredded, more than I generally use an exercise DVD, so that felt good. Leaving it alone all last week was a bad idea as everything made my arms burn like hell, but I certainly felt like I’d worked out despite the wimpy weights and still being at Level 1. I must admit its probably the fastest, least boring 20 minutes training that I do, which can’t be bad! And it left me feeling kind of wobbly afterwards, which is always good!
My walk was a little longer than usual and I enjoyed the bright sunshine all the way – plus lots of kisses from my favourite German shepherd dog. She lives down the road from me, loves me passionately (and its mutual!) and just got back from a 9 week holiday – so we have a lot of catching up to do!!! I missed her soooo much, I just floated home with a smile on my face a mile wide. No-one and nothing makes a girl feel as loved and appreciated as a dog who loves her!!!
I did feel a bit wobbly after lunch with all that training, but rather than dive head first into my remaining frozen fruit cake I settled for an afternoon lie down upstairs – far from the kitchen!
Breakfast: All bran with peaches and a poached egg on nimble toast
Lunch: Vegetable soup with a LC and red onion sandwich – and a few pluots & raisins
Dinner: Quorn – red lentil Bolognese sauce stuffed into a roasted butternut squash, served with salad – including half a baby avocado for healthy fats.
Snacks: Protein smoothie (my first for days), Greek yoghurt with honey & cereal. Oh yes….. and I may have somehow found a gingerbread Easter bunny in my shopping trolley this morning, which I was forced to dismember viciously and devour with slightly worrying relish!!! I might have undiagnosed violent tendencies…
