Starting Over...?

Whoops, that wasn't a very healthy weekend! I mean it could have been worse... My dad and my sister came to visit so I pretty much just relaxed! I'm not even sure I can remember what I ate!

Saturday breakfast was an organic food bar

I love these bars, they are like a stodgier, chewier version of a Nakd bar and very tasty! This one had the added bonus of chocolate chips!

Lunch... um, I think I shared a plain ham sandwich with my sister! Dinner was good, we had a fajita feast! With all the trimmings! Plus lots of chips and dips and hummus, my favourite! I may have also had a few glasses of bucks fizz and a large toffee apple cider - this was amazing! It was on offer for £1, it would have been rude of me not to try it!

Sunday started with pancakes filled with dark chocolate spread and coconut butter, the warmth from the pancakes made the topping all melty and heavenly! This resulted in some late night snacking on three slices of toast with the same toppings - if I only I could find some sort of warm, calorie free vessel for the chocolate and coconut...

There was some lunch, chocolate and more chips n' dips in there somewhere. I had no dinner due to filling up on crap. Bad Stella.

So, starting over again this morning!

Breakfast: Green monster smoothie with spinach, spirulina, banana, vanilla rice milk and maca powder - delicious!

Snack: Satsuma and a banana

Lunch: Prawns in Nando's marinade with salad (iceberg, mixed leaves, spinach and spring onion) and a raw spich tomato/flax cracker

Snack: Maxitone Sculptress chocolate shake after running, and when I got home a Coconut Fudge Baby and some raw chocolate - very kindly sent to me by The Raw Chocolate Company, I had tried one of their bars before and thought it tasted lovely, the texture was great, but it left the most fowl aftertaste in my mouth that I just could not shake! Last week I tried some mesquite for the first time and noticed the same horrible aftertaste, after some googling I discovered that the raw chocolate bar I had tried contained an ingredient called Algaroba, which is basically the same as mesquite! So I emailed the lovely people at The Raw Chocolate Company and asked if they had any bars that don't contain algaroba and next thing I know three amazing sounding raw chocolate bars appear on my doorstep! Tonight I had a few squares of Lavish which is dark chocolate with orange. I like this. A lot. It could be dangerous. Oh and don't let me put you off the other flavours, plenty of people don't have the same 'issues' with mesquite as I do!

Far healthier than Terry's...

Dinner: Chicken chow mein (still to eat, waiting for my boyfriend coming home from some meeting about pool...)

Drinks: Coffee with coconut syrup, Teapigs, green tea mixed with fruit tea and water

Exercise: 20 min run at lunchtime - managed to keep running for 2 minutes instead of 1 minute today! And kept my recovery walks to 1 minute, was tough, but I feel like I can do better!

So far, so good! But my boyfriend has just arrived home with a tube of Smarties - they are for photographs but it's going to be hard not to eat them! Maybe I'll just have the orange ones ;)

And just because she is so cute, here is my little sister

    am starting over too. I wanted to punch my own face after stepping on the scales this morning :P

  2. Aw she is a cutie! I only recently realised they sold nando's sauces in supermarkets. I may be tempted to get some! Have a good day :)

  3. What a cutie! Well done on the running xx
