I'm back...sorry for the lack of blog posts this week but I've been struggling with this stupid allergic reaction I got on my eyes and we've all been ill as Emilia picked up a cough/cold from nursery and on top of that Eduardo has an ear infection! So we are all falling apart basically, ha ha! And the 29th (Leap Year) marked our unofficial "one year" anniversary of our legal wedding so we wanted to celebrate by doing something special. We had planned to spend the night in a hotel in London and I was also supposed to meet my friend Sabrina for afternoon tea & a pampering day but of course that didn't happen so I apologise that this has ended up being a very uninteresting and boring What I Ate post! But anyway...here's what I had to eat:
Breakfast was porridge with whole milk, a medjool date chopped up, cinnamon and a black coffee with a 1/2 litre bottle of water. After that I worked out with Lucy (9am) and we did a 20 minute HIIT workout which I included in my video. It's basically the same routine three times over!
Lunch was a toasted wholegrain multiseed bagel slathered in Philadelphia cream cheese with smoked salmon, cucumber and a homemade ginger tea for my throat. I also had another bottle of water which I started during my workout.
In the afternoon I had a black coffee & a little snack of natural yoghurt with some blueberries, raspberries and strawberries with a sprinkle of cinnamon. (Can you tell I love cinnamon?!)
I made wholewheat spaghetti with prawns, chilli, rocket & sun-dried tomatoes (recipe from Jamie's Italy book). This was yummy and super easy to make. Plus pasta is always a hit with the kids so it gets a thumbs up from me! I also drank another 1/2 litre of water with my dinner.
For pudding I was craving one of these cookies from our cookie jar...these babies are from the Waitrose bakery and are chewy, soft and taste homemade. I got three different types but this one is my favourite: white chocolate and cranberry. I had mine with a cup of warm skim milk which I heated up in our frothing machine.
Later that evening I had another 1/2 litre of water along with a peppermint & licorice tea and that was it for today! You can watch my What I Ate video including this week's workout below.
