No trainer session

Today was supposed to include a catch-up session with my trainer, but the poor dear dislocated his finger and broke a bit of it as well and is still trying to get it x-rayed.  I bumped into him on the way out of the gym, looking all strapped up but very chirpy (he's just like that all the time, I think) despite having spent 5 hours in the local A&E waiting for an x-ray that still hasn't happened!  Anyhoo, I had a gym session anyway, by myself.  Which was kinda good as I was apprehensive about today's session and what it might entail.  I did increase one thing in today's session; I upped the reverse crunches to 3x15 interleaved with the Swiss Ball jackknives.

Tonight is my night in this week and I've got some lovely beef chilli with softened courgette ribbons, shredded onion and toasted pine nuts on the side to eat while I read "Men's Fitness".  Lots of fitnessy people I follow have said it's good, so I thought I'd give it a try this month seeing as there's a freebie with it as well.  Let's see, shall we?

Oh!  And we has kitchen scales again!  Muuuch better.  I didn't realise quite how much I rely on them for most meals until the old ones broke.  It was quite unnerving, guessing stuff, though some measures could be approximated using tablespoons, cups and mls.  It's just not the same as weighing though!

S - Dorset Cereals bar; 3 berries and cherries
S - 1 scoop in semi-skimmed milk
L - salad; lettuce, sweet pepper, pomegranate seeds, celery, capers, cherry tomatoes, chicken fillet and lemon juice
