Busy, busy, busy day! Started my day with fresh grapefruit. I love red grapefruit, being 92% water it has so many health benefits! Grapefruit has several properties linked to weight loss, including its fibre content helping you to feel full while reducing calorie intake.
I started getting pretty peckish around 12pm so I had a bowl of fruit (raspberries, grapes and strawberries) with low fat cranberry and raspberry yoghurt to keep me going till lunch time. Trying to drink more water through the day and decrease the amount of tea I drink (oh but I do love a good cuppa tea).
Lunchtime came around slowly today, feeling the hunger I had a jam-packed salad full of fresh veg and potatoes. I love salad in summertime, but now we are getting into colder weather I would much prefer soup to salad. Counteracting this, I heated the broccoli and potato up and it was delicious.
Check out the salad I had today, easy to put together, and just 15 minutes of prep. Simples!
Finishing work slightly late, I missed the gym class unfortunately, but this didn’t stop me. I walked to the gym (1.8 miles) with all my work gear, and then dropped my bags off with Rory and complete a Pure Tone class.
A new class for me, and I was pleasantly surprised. It consisted of 4 exercises of 20 seconds each, then a 30 second break (jogging on spot), repeat 4 times. This was done with 4 sets of exercises (legs, arms, all body and abs). A good core workout was what I needed when I was still feeling sore from the day before.
Got home to Rory cooking a delicious spaghetti meatballs from the Slimming world collection, with a few tweaks. Will post this adapted version next week, so keep an eye out.
Another great day, now let’s see what day 3 brings!
