I actually did not eat a "baled potato" the other night, it was of course baked potato!
Very nice it was too! I pricked the baking potatoes with a fork and then rubbed with salt and olive oil, went for the quick option of microwaving as I was starving! Think I did about 15-20 mins for three small baking potatoes. Once they were cooked I/my boyfriend cut them in half and scooped out the middle, mashed it with some crispy parma ham, chives and cheese, stuffed it back in the skins, sprinkled a little more cheese on top them finished them off with 5-10 mins in the oven.
I'm not normally a big baked potato fan but cooked this way I absolutely love them! Is a bit time consuming and fiddly but well worth the effort!
I did take some potato photos but they are on my laptop at home.
I've been very naughty over the weekend and haven't' even tried to eat healthy! Also haven't done much actual exercising, mostly lots of walking. But the few interval running sessions I did do were great and I'm so glad I've gone back to running in that way. I also noticed I have improved massively, whereas with running slower for longer it felt like I made hardly any progress. For some reason I just find running faster easier, sure I can't keep it up for so long but I am finding myself able to go for longer over time. When I go slow it's quite painful, my joints all hurt and my shins just feel so uncomfortable, crank the speed up and that all goes away.
I have decided on an exercise plan for this week - featuring a few gym classes which I have never tried before, and to be honest I'm a bit nervous about! I'm not particular skilled when it comes to co-ordination, totally useless actually! I've avoided classes for so long because I'm afraid I'll be like some big idiot at the back of the class doing it all wrong and everyone will laugh at me. Now I'm sure people wont laugh, they aren't that cruel surely? And I imagine they'll be more interested in what they are doing. But I am pretty certain I'll look like a fool!
Anyway, the plan looks like this:
Monday - Boxfit
Tuesday - Spinning
Wednesday - Full body weights
Thursday - nothing planned
Friday - Treadmill intervals
Saturday - Body Conditioning
Sunday - Rest
