Recap on the day

I had a relatively healthy day.

Had a cappuccino on the way to work but I figure I am off them from 1st July as my alchemy of turning coffee into circuits twice a week starts tomorrow...

At work I had my usual porridge...

and nothing apart from a handful of nuts until lunchtime which was later than normal.

On way to work I had bought all the ingredients for a Vita-mix soup so I made that for lunch (raw ingredients mixed with hot water and blended).... delicious.

And for once I did not have it with bread... I was crunching on celery with a pot of humus to dip it in and had about 3 spoons of coleslaw.

Then the only thing I have eaten tonight is what I ate at the gym cafe after a swim which was a pasta salad with feta cheese and sun dried tomatoes. BUT with it I had a cafe mocha large, and a large cookie.

But the above is all that has passed my lips all day, so not bad. Oh but I have only had about 2 glasses of water all day today, and it has been 30 degrees which is HOT in LOndon - trust me..... so I shoulda been guzzling. Dr Robert O Young would recommend 6.5 litres of water a day, given how much I weigh!

And the twice a week circuit training starts this week and is booked for Wednesday and Thursday, urrrggggh and then I have a Race for Life 10k to walk and run on 5th July - double uuurrrgggh :-)

P.S. the soup contained:

2 stalks of celery
2 carrots
2 organic on the vine tomatoes
a piece of ginger
1/3 bag of greens
half a red bell pepper
an avocado
a table spoon of bouillon and 4 cups of hot water
Before you say my ingredients don't match the photo, I got the photo from Google Images...

I am so impressed Liska! You're doing so well. I love the raw veggie soup, too. Maybe some day I'll try it...

I had it for lunch again today, and I am still at work now, so had another mug of it. Yeah by now it was cold but still tasted good and I wanted to clean the jug so wanted to empty it.

Did circuits today and sweated buckets.
