Hungry day

Really wanted to go to the gym today but my mind won over my body and I protected my rest day. Rest days are important and it's sometimes hard to remember that.

Having not gone to the gym, my eating times are a bit different and that's resulted in being hungry at odd times (lord knows there's a lot of protein today so it can't be that); 1 hour after having my nommy lunch salad I was still hungry. Meh. Still, I am liking my yogurty breakfasts (greek yogurt with vanilla whey mixed in, fruit compote and flaked almonds on top):-

And there was a v. tasty dinner of Aberdeen Angus and cracked black pepper chipolatas on butternut squash mash (roasted and mashed squash is sooo intense and sticky and tasty!):-

Also, today had a cheat meal in it, due to extenuating circumstances, a medical need for tea and cake and wanting to be supportive and inclusive:-

Inclusivity tastes... OMG, SO GOOD! Morrisons Lemon Meringue Cup Cakes are DIVINE! They take a lemon sponge cup cake, make a cavity in the middle and fill it with lemon curd and top the thing with lemon butter cream and a tiny sprinkling of meringue crumbs. I've not had cake in a while and it was amazing. I could taste every distinct flavour; the butter; the icing sugar; the floury, fatty, sugary, moist sponge; the tangy, sticky, zingy lemon curd... But no, this is not the start of a slippery slide into stuffing my face with cakes, it was a treat, a cheat, a free meal and certainly has been counted in my food diary for today and I know it's empty calories but I don't feel guilty for eating it. I enjoyed it. I enjoyed sharing the pair that we bought and sharing the experience of the fabulous flavours.
