I'm naughty!.....

.....as I am blogging at work but I just wanted to share with you this....my work colleague bought me in a massive ryvita that she purchased from ikea... check it out;

Look how it compares to my hand!

We had great fun with this thing;

Here's my friend Adam looking through it and taking a bite;

I too had a nibble but this bad boy needs some hummus as it's a bit dry on its own.

Tonight I'm off to my last nutritional course & the course tutor will be handing out specific diet plans to each person based on their needs. In my 1-2-1 with the tutor I asked for a plan that will compliment my half marathon training, will help me lose weight & contain no meat!

My half marathon is in just under 9 weeks so I really need to pull my finger out and get some miles under my belt!

Catch you all later x

Didn't mama tell you to eat your greens?

This evening I wanted to get some greens in me so decided to make my first green monster!

I had to use frozen spinach as that is all I had;

I added a banana and some soya milk;

I really like alpro as it has a creamy taste-yummy!

May I present you with my first ever green monster;

I made enough so I can have one for breakfast too. Here is me taking my first sip....

Erm, do I like it?.....

Hell yeah! I like it alot!

Tonights dinner was I am sad to say a ready meal but I am trying to clear out my freezer. I went for a weight watchers mushroom & brocoli wedge melt, it actually wasn't too bad!

My simple but nice dinner...

After dinner I remembered that I had some applewood smoked cheese in the fridge and as my husband does not eat cheese it is acceptable for me to eat it straight out of the packet!

Naughty Amy! I'm off to bed now to have some cheesy nightmares with green monsters!

Last night i really enjoyed watching Run Fat Boy Run but was so relaxed and warm in bed as hubby had turned on the electric blanket i feel asleep several times so will have to watch it again fully in a couple of days when there is nothing on tv!

Today was back to work for me after not being well for a week and a half. It was difficult getting up as my sleeping pattern has gone out of the window whilst being ill but it was good to be back in the usual routine. I really want to start running in the mornings now it is lighter but i find it so difficult to get up! Really need to give myself a kick up the bum and tell myself to make it a priority!

For breakfast, i had a lovely cinnamon and raisin bagel with flora buttery and a glass of OJ, due to the lack of appetite recently this really filled me up and kept me going until lunch.

For lunch i had a weight watchers soup, i prefer to make my own soup but hubby bought lots of tins last week for me to have for lunch whilst he was at work.

The soup was really nice and low in fat, i also ate the nuts this afternoon but not the fruit - naughty amy! I will make sure i eat the fruit after dinner tonight.

I also had 2 rice cakes throughout the day, they are so yummy even though they make the office smell like someone has started a small fire LOL!

On the way home, i really appreciated my drive home, i used to live in Birmingham and the commute home would be on a grubby bus, through dodgy areas, stuck in traffic. Now i drive 10-15 minutes through the countryside. I wish it was safer to ride a bike on the main road but it is far too dangerous. Check out some of my views;

Below is the beautiful church that is right outside my house...

I'm home from work now having a cuddle with my fur baby. I think she misses me now i am back at work. I'm contemplating going for a run but am a little worried as i'm still not 100%, i suppose i could go for a power walk instead? I also need groceries so may do that this evening and start back running tomorrow. I'll blog later so you'll know what i decide!
