My day started with a sharp wakeup call from my puppy Flash, eager for a walk. A short drive to work followed by a bowl of low fat raspberry yoghurt filled with grapes, strawberries and raspberries. I’m not a big breakfast fan so yoghurt and some fruit is usually my go to breakfast at work.
Lunch time was my big meal for the day 🤤, leftover homemade green thai curry with half basmati rice and half quinoa (I like white rice too much to go all out just yet). Full of veggies including baby corn, peppers, sugar snap peas, tenderstem broccoli (the king of veg) and spinach. [image from dinner last night]
Late afternoon I started getting really peckish, so I had a quick go-ahead snack bar (3 slices forest fruits), not the healthiest due to the sugar content, but gave me the sugar rush I needed to get me through the rest of the afternoon and no excuse to not hit the gym (even though I did leave my trainers at home like a doilum!)
After work, it was time to kick my butt into gear, a short 7-minute run to the gym🏃♀️, a 30-minute circuit class which included slam balls, wall sits, burpees, kettle bell swings and many more torturous stations.
Sweat pouring everywhere, I ran the short journey home🏃♀️. I prefer to keep my workout short and sweet, circuits are the best for me as I like various exercises, I have a short attention span and get bored of working out really easily. Trainers help me keep in the zone and quick changes keeps me on my toes.
For dinner, I cooked a simple omelette filled with light cheese, peppers, red onion, tomatoes and spinach paired with tenderstem broccoli and some cucumber. Simple but delicious, full of protein and really quick to cook.
Today = success 💪. Let’s hope for many more days like this!
