I woke up with some serious DOMS in my arms this morning. I was a bit worried about doing my usual Davina 'Pump' DVD but I got on and did it, luckily most of the moves in the DVD didn't hurt the areas where I was sore. I don't mind a little bit of DOMS to make you feel like you've really worked your muscles!
Breakfast was a bowl of 'Bounty' porridge - banana, oats, chia seeds cooked with water with a scoop of chocolate whey and some dessicated coconut on the top.
Not quite like a Bounty bar but as close as I'll be getting any time soon!
I was famished by the time lunch came round and dug right into my salad which was the same as yesterday - mixed leaves, spinach, tuna, kidney beans, light mayo, spring onions, carrot, cucumber and cherry tomatoes.
Followed by a large portion of red grapes.
I was having to go to a late meeting so I made my afternoon snack a little bigger than usual with the addition of savory rice cakes to my usual babybel lights and apple.
By the time I got home I just wanted to make something quick and easy so I had a bowl of my favourite Courgette and Watercress Soup with another couple of savory rice cakes.
Followed by a large bowl of frozen raspberries in vanilla rice milk.
I think I'm going to have another nice apple later too.
Drinks - water, green tea, decaf tea
I got very excited today when my friend Charlie emailed me with the details of the EAT! NewcastleGateshead Food Festival. We have booked tickets for the launch event which includes loads of posh eats, local beers and cocktails! I can't wait, it sounds like so much fun and it will be lovely to have a posh night out with my best mate. Theres also loads of other little events going on that weekend including a fair trade market and a cupcake festival!
Have you been to any food festivals? I seem to be hearing about a few of them recently. I'm still counting down the days till Friday this week, I have a day full of meetings tomorrow and Thursday which means I'll get nothing done, but at least I have Friday free to catch up as best as possible!
