Day 7 – 1 week down, 1 finished tattoo, 1 wet run and stock cube stress

No Comments

Morning

Well it’s safe to say my digestive tract has noticed the extra fibre. I won’t go into too much detail but don’t want to be too far from a toilet at the mo. I’m sure that will settle down.

Today is an exciting one, I’m having the tattoo of the Goddess Isis on my right forearm finished off. First I need to run and get some uni work done. Oh please let it be dry on the beach, I’m sick of rainy walks and runs this week, fairly sure Jasper dog feels the same especially after yesterday’s walk where his belly willy spent a significant amount of time in cold muddy water. He’s really not keen on his silly belly willy being submerged, he does this weird arch back to try and pull it out of water which is hilarious.

Later today

Well it’s safe to we weren’t lucky as far as avoiding the rain goes. In fact dog and I were drenched. My coach Hesus wants me to keep my heart rate down as I extend my run time. I’m rubbish at pacing so at the moment I’m doing 2 mins run 45 sec walk to drop my heart back down. Seems to be working ok. Although wet and windy it was still an enjoyable 5 miles up and down the beach. I tried to get a cute photo of me and dog at the end of the run, you know like other people do. I failed entirely so here’s one of me looking wet and drunk (not actually drunk of course, red eyed from the rain) holding an unhappy dog in the rain.

Suprisingly though my recover and heart rate generally seem to have improved vo2 max wise and according to Garmin my fit age is 26 well as I approach my 46 birthday in a few weeks time I’m happy with that!

Later, later today my Isis tattoo is finished and I absolutely love her

It’s also just such a cool little shop

Today’s food in pictures and words:-

Breakfast

Squished avocado with a bit of chilli and paprika on Nairn’s crackers.

Lunch

Roasted chickpeas, quinoa cooked in various spices, salad with apple, cashew nuts and lemon with olive oil dressing.

Dinner

Stuffed mushrooms (adapted from the Deliciously Ella original cookbook). I add spinach leaves and passatta. (Slightly burned today! Oops)

With grated and slowly stir fried veg, kinda a veggie bubble n squeek or cauliflower rice with other stuff if you’re a hipster.

Snacks

Salted popcorn, cocoa with unsweetened almond milk and chilli powder.

100% dark chocolate

I had a really argghh moment when I wanted to use a stock cube and couldn’t. I just wanted to make stock dammit. I need to find some sugar free stock. Then another when my husband brought home jelly beans from working away, I soooo wanted a jelly bean.

He did bring me back some Mandela tea though which is an interesting concept. Can you imagine a Margaret Thatcher tea? Would have to be a very traditional strong with milk. No sweetness allowed, or untraditional milks

Total sugars etc
