Horrible day! And when I tried to replace walking with a stint on the elliptical walker this morning I only lasted about 8 minutes before a banging headache drove me off the machine and into the medicine cabinet! 2 ibuprofen and a hot bath later the headache is gone but so is the urge to train :-(.
Instead, we spent the afternoon finishing off series 1 of Mad Men followed by Dr Who and now sticking with the sci-fi genre for a TV night in ;-) We’re watching Stargate: Universe right now, and I have just one question: Why? Don’t get me wrong, its watchable enough, but compared to Stargate: SG1 and Stargate: Atlantis, it just isn’t in the same class…
Breakfast: Chocolate slow cooked oats (they were cooked in the slow cooker overnight with chocolate oat milk, then mixed with a little more oat milk and some chocolate whey powder) topped with some ‘almond butter’ – ground almonds bought at Whole Foods Market. I love these, and got some pistachio as well, but its really too grainy and firm to qualify as nut butter because there’s nothing – literally nothing – added, no salt, sugar or fat to loosen the texture. It also doesn’t really melt!
Lunch: 2 home-made black bean burgers (topped with a sliced up mini babybel light) with a monster salad
Dinner: Leek & potato soup and a wrap with LC and salad
Snacks: All bran with peaches; a new ‘Superfood’ snack also from Whole Foods – very tasty! Sorry about the rubbish photo, it looked just like a large ball of dark chocolate!
And a protein smoothie
Weight today: 10 st (140lbs) exactly – the lowest weight I’ve seen since just before I got married, I think! Weird… and probably just a strange blip on the scales!!! My calorie consumption doesn’t really justify it, that’s for sure…
