Rest day

But it so nearly wasn't.  I nearly ended up going to the gym after work, but in some ways it's good that I didn't.  Today was always going to be a rest day, just because I ate/drank too much yesterday doesn't mean I should thrash myself to bits today to make up for it.  So.  Rest.  And I know I was going to eat to maintenance on non-weights days, but as I was about 500 over maintenance yesterday instead of 500 under it, I'm not going right up to maintenance today.

I was expecting my new bike to arrive today, but it's not coming until tomorrow now; photos as soon as it's out of the box, I promise!

Nice little evening snack; an after-dinner classic of (Pie D'Angeloys) cheese on (organic, wholemeal) biscuits with grapes:-

B - greek yogurt with 40g Dorset Cereals Tasty Toasted Spelt muesli
S - cottage cheese on Dr. Karg cheese and pumpkin seed crisp bread
L - salad; lettuce, sweet pepper, cherry tomato, celery, beetroot and roast chicken
S - MP beef jerky
S - 1 small tin of pineapple slices in pineapple juice
D - beef chilli with couscous, sweetcorn and peas
S - Pie D'Angeloys on Dove Farms organic, wholemeal digestives and white seedless grapes

Exercise - rest. YES! REST!

  1. I just bought some of that dorset cereal, I can't wait to try it x

  2. I think it's the nicest of the range; tangier, slightly salty tasting and with a nice crunch to it with the heaviness of oats in there too. Nomsicles!

  3. I'm loving the Dr Karg crackers - yum! I also had chilli tonight but mine was lamb - drool!

  4. They're so moreish those crackers! I'm a sucker for a savoury snack so they fit my snackiness very nicely. And the Sainsbury's Local 3 minutes from the house sells them 7am-11pm 365 days a year :o)
