I woke up a bit tired this morning - I'm getting bad at getting to bed at a decent time. Ideally I need 7 hours sleep, so should be in bed by 11 if I'm getting up to do Jill at 6... Thing is, it's often quite late by the time I sit down and relax in the evenings and I always want to make the most of it.
Still, I trudged on with Jill and, as usual, felt better for it. As they say, 'you never regret a workout'. So cheesy. So true.
I'm still obsessing about my Paleo porridge, today with blueberries, raspberries and the last of the prunes from Sunday's dinner, topped with desiccated coconut. Still loving it. I also enjoyed two cups of tea with almond milk. Tried it yet? It's good, I tell ya.
I know what you're thinking. Where's Liquorice the tea cosy? Well, she was a little tired today so I gave her the morning off... (or I forgot to turn the dishwasher on before bed lasnight couldn't make my usual pot. Doh!).
The working day
Tiny apple snack time came at 10:00 (my usual tummy rumble time). Pictured with my ball from a leadership event. I wrote a phrase that resonated with me on the day on it. It means rather than thinking if I get what I need, then I can do what I want and be who I want to be, we should turn this on its head. So, you should act like and be who you want to be, do what you want to do, and then you'll get what you want! Does that make sense?! Did to me. Sadly, not edible, though.
12:00 salmon salad - kale, carrot, beetroot, cucumber, celery, red pepper, red wine vinegar, olive oil, pepper. Crunch, crunch, crunch, spill some down self, continue to crunch.
Pretty swiftly after I needed a hit of sweet/sharp citrus.
There followed a brisk stroll (freezing out!) to the shops to buy Lindt Extra Dark 90% chocolate to make peppermint creams again later in the week. It was good to get some fresh air as it was a long and busy day.
I had my last snack pretty early in the day so was famished when I got in and quickly munched two carrots before tackling the dusting, while Andy hoovered and swept. Cleaning done for the week!
Sausages, sweet potato mash and boiled Savoy cabbage and carrot. I also had a side of half a tonne of English mustard. Addicted. I'd selected five sausages for us from the butcher on Monday, and my two came out really tiny (still tasty) so the boy kindly agreed to swap for one of his bigger sausages... The End!
Question of the day: How much sleep do you need?
Seven and a half hours is perfect for me, but I tend to end up with six and a half, seven if I'm lucky, in the week.
Doubt I'll post tomorrow as I'm in London all day, so catch you Friday!
