I talked to my FiL yesterday and he was asking how I was getting on with the borrowed bike. The answer of course was that I hadn’t been on it since getting my job offer :-(. So this morning I hauled it out and went for a ridiculously hard (very hilly round here!!!) 20 minute ride. It was good, so I’m going to try harder to remember that I have it!
I planned on walking into Chepstow for a coffee as well, but unfortunately almost the minute I put the bike away and showered in preparation the rain started… and didn’t stop. Some of the time it was raining hard, some just drizzling, all of it unappealing. So I declared today a partial rest day and drove into town for my shopping (and coffee fix!) instead ;-)
This afternoon was taken up almost entirely with food prep for the week. I’m fed up of my evenings zooming by with no time for anything else so I decided to get a head start. I cooked up 6 bean burgers with the intention of having one for lunch six times (not in a row!); baked some tofu for the same reason; made enough popcorn for 2 days-worth of snacks (don’t want to let it get stale before I can eat it) and weighed out 5 portions of all bran with berries before making my lunch for tomorrow. I’ve planned several slow cooker meals for the week which will be prepped the night before, but I don’t mind that as I’m not looking to give up the kitchen altogether!
Breakfast: Toast with jam and cottage cheese
Lunch: Pea, mint & broccoli soup with LC on beer bread
Dinner: Slow cooked vegetable curry from the freezer with cauliflower ‘rice’ and salad
Snacks: Forest fruits protein bar (very nice but not as good as the Vanilla Honeycomb one from yesterday!) – no photo as it looks exactly the same as yesterday’s!
Greek yoghurt with all bran and strawberries;
skinny vanilla latte with biscotti
