Keeping it real

Real Military Fitness that is. I made it there Thursday night and this morning. Yep, feeling pretty darned pleased with myself, especially as I was out on the town lastnight. It also means my Indian meal this evening will taste that bit sweeter knowing I earned it!

I hope you're having yourselves a fruitful little Saturday so far, too. But, for now, take a moment to relax, kick back and check out my eats and treats over the past few days...

Thursday

So, I decided I was going to the bootcamp ball after all after some encouragement from my dear friends. I needed a little fuel before I set off so tucked in to smoked salmon and some almonds.

 
My friend was at the bootcamp class and we had a good laugh, which made the time fly by. It felt alot easier than the last session!
 
Back at base, I set about cooking this salmon recipe, which was just the ticket - light and fresh. Who knew anchovies, rosemary and salmon go together? I added some samphire for that seasidey vibe.


Friday

As it was practically the weekend I treated myself by topping my usual veggie frittata with some smoked salmon.

 
Lunch was some of that salmon I'd baked with Luann's kale salad, then a walk with DB. It was his birthday so I treated him to a stroll in my company in the FREEZING cold. There were little snowflakes and everything. I know, I'm too kind.

 
 Mustn't forget this golden nugget.
 
 
At 5pm we deserted the office ready for our team night out. It was two for one on cocktails at the restaurant, but I decided to stick to Sauvignon Blanc.

 
The plan was to stay within the NHS guidelines and have three 175ml glasses, but an extra one snuck in there somehow... still, I did okay!
 
Dinner at La Cantina was lush! Grilled red snapper with a chill and lime veggie stir fry and pan-fried chorizo and pico de gallo. I'd eat this again in a heartbeat - fresh, crunchy, tangy, salty.

 
I was a good girl and got a lift back quite early and a bit tipsy. Perfect!
 
Saturday
 
Even a fairly modest (for me) amount of wine lead to broken sleep and dehydration, so I didn't wake up feeling my best. But, I soldiered on and decided food would help, as would tea. They did. Another smoked salmon frittata coming up!

 
I got an email saying bootcamp had changed to 9.30am from 10.00am, so I hopped to it and walked the 30 minutes to the meeting point. It is still bitterly cold, but I had a great session - it was just me and one other girl, so practically personal training for £4! The sun started to come out and we were working out by the sea - I realised how lucky I am to have this 'outdoor gym' on my doorstep.
 
I walked home happy but washed out... lack of sleep followed by jogging and lots of push-ups = afternoon snooze on the cards!
 
I refuelled with a prawn salad with sweet potato and now I'm off for a bit of pampering at the hairdresser.

 
Laters, Taters!
 
 
What are your plans for Saturday night?
Indian meal with my mum and her boyf and then seeing Argo at the cinema.
