Where was I?

I think I left you after lunch yesterday. I followed that up with a big cup of Starbucks, my first one in over two weeks and I bloody loved every single sip - I'm such a sucker for Starbucks! It helps that there's a subsidised one in work ;) Afternoon snack was some yogurt with homemade rhubarb and ginger jam

I made my jam with dark brown muscovado sugar incase you're wondering why the colour looks so gross! This is lovely! The rhubarb came from my mum's garden :D

Before heading to the gym I scoffed some hummus and mange tout

This was not enough to fuel a full body weights session! I had to give in half way through the seated row and skip out on the chest press as I just burned right out. Still got in a 20 min walk each way and 10 mins of cardio before the weights.

After the gym, since the sun was out for a change, we planted out some of our veg plants as they had started to outgrow their pots - fingers crossed we get a decent bit of veggies this year - they are looking good. They should have gone out sooner but our weather has been more like it would normally be in March so it's been too miserable to get stuff planted out.

I was absolutely starving so had two crunchy oat/cereal bars to tide me over.

Dinner was turkey steak cooked in garlic and paprika with lots of onion, yogurt and parsley dressing and severed in a seeded tortilla wrap - plus another wrap toasted and filled with just yogurt dressing!

Bit low on the fruit and veg, I'm always amazed at how little portions of veg I get in a big salad! You've got to use a lot of lettuce or spinach to get up to 1 portion!


  1. allegedly a small Innocent smoothie provides two portions... that's how I build up my intake... but then again, I am lazy ( ;

    A smoothie would have been good actually - need to get some more fruit in or raid the back of the cupboards for some tinned fruit!

  3. You're too good; I just go down the corner shop to buy one : )

    Haha! It's the week before pay day and therefore use up all the random bits an pieces in the cupboards week! :D

    I really fancy one of those vanilla Innocent smoothies now...

  5. Top Tip: Raid the partner's coin jar [psst... you didn't hear that from me!]

  6. subsidised starbucks....thats a cheery thought after a crappy budget today! i love coffee. i have 2 cups a day. i remember reading about your new diet a few weeks back which was no coffee. is that when you last had one?

  7. Hello there
    i am so interested in how you work out calorie intake and exercise calories.
    I fill out a food diary daily in which i allow myself 1500kcals a day. I am currently 8st 11, have lost a stone since new year but cannot seem to shift any lower. As i am only 5ft one i know i could do with losing another half stone.
    I go to various classes, 8 a week including Body Pump, Body Jam, Body Combat and Body Attack.
    Im not sure whether i am consuming too many or too little calories with the exercise i do.? I eat healthy nutritious meals and eat every 2-3 hours to keep my metabolism ticking over. I portion control everything i eat so know what i am consuming on a daily basis, I up my protein intake with the help of diet whey shakes and bars. I am looking into getting the maxitone sculptress tablets and saw from your blog you had taken them, do they work, as really want to shift this last stone off and its getting me down :(.
    Sorry to bombard you with questions but i found your website so intriguing.
    Many thanks
