But only a very brief one as I've pretty much been taking time out from blogging - not intentionally, it just happened!
My diet has been just crap. I really do need to get back to the gym, I think it'll be far easier keeping my diet on track when I'm exercising. I'm still partly blaming the weather, it's still so cold and miserable it's hard to get motivated at all!
Tonight is going to be spent watching election stuff on TV, currently Channel 4's Alternative Election Night which is making me laugh too much and really hurting my poor abs - my muscles still hurt from Tuesday nights Tae Bo Abs and Glutes - Billy Blanks is pretty tough!
What else...? I've said I'll run the Race For Life 5k in Aberdeen in June, I quite fancied doing a 10k but Race for Life is for a great cause and I'll be running with a good friend :)
I had quite a foody weekend, it was my boyfriend and I's anniversary on the Thursday, my mum her...boyfriend sounds so silly, but that's what he is, they came to visit for the weekend so we had a really nice Indian meal out on Saturday, as well as lunch at the International Market and a lunch at a castle, and I may have made the mistake of making a chocolate brownie cake and eating loads of it!
Our anniversary meal was at this great wee French restaurant Cafe Boheme, we'd never seen or heard of it before but past it onto the place we had planned to go to, which was fully booked so we went back to the French place and wow! It was amazing! I had a goats cheese tart for my starter, turbot in a creamy mushroom sauce for main and pudding was a chocolate mousse filled macaroon, some honeycomb icecream and a very rich dark chocolate mousse - all little servings as one dish, not 3 full desserts! Sadly :(
Our Indian meal was at Cinnamon where I had lots of poppadoms with various Indian dips, followed by massive king prawns cooked in cinnamon and coconut with a honey, cinnamon and almond naan bread - verr niice. The naan was amazing! I also had a nice sorbet/icecream thing which was free and therefore zero calories! :D
Some other food that I have photos of:
Lunch - oatcakes with goats cheese and chorizo. This was all I had to take to work for lunch, was a bit random but such a great combination.
Goat milk yogurt with chopped granny smith apple and plum, drowned in cinnamon with a blob of hazelnut butter - I normally have yogurt with frozen or fresh blueberries or raspberries but a reader suggested cinnamon in yogurt - which is gorgeous, wish I'd discovered it sooner! And after reading Salad & Sequins I've been inspired to get a bit more adventurous with yogurt! There's a sentence I never thought I'd say!
Do you like my little lunch tubs? They make packed lunches fun! [/loser]
2 chopped plums, homemade greek yogurt (yeah baby!), crumbled up fudge baby, cinnamon and maca - this would have been good if I hadn't put the fudge baby in the night before as by the time I came to eat it it was all soggy and rubbish :(
Smoothie with rice milk, hazelnut butter, banana and 1 scoop chocolate Maxitone Sculptress protein shake - my current favourite breakfast smoothie
Homemade greek yogurt with 1 scoop banana sculptress protien shake and crumbled fudge baby - fudgy baby was good with the yogurt, the sculptress shake was not! Far too sweet!
Today's breakfast - more of the greek yog with fruit salad and pumpkin seeds, love the chewiness these add!
Well that's quite enough of that, I'm going to each chocolate, watch TV and chat to my lovely friend Ivana
