Midweek and it's dragging

I tried the Nakd Cashew Cookie bar today and it was absolutely gorgeous!  Slightly malty tasting and the only ingredients are "dates and cashew nuts".  It came out of the wrapper a bit oily-feeling but that's probably just a bit of juice from the dates.  Really tasty, would definitely get them in the weekly shop if Ocado sold them!

For a mid-week slump day, I did pretty well in the gym; increased the weight on the squat and swing to 12kg which was quite hard towards the last couple of reps so was probably due as the 10kg was getting a touch easy.  Next point of attack will be the cross swing lunge thing and upping the dumbbell weight to 5kg on that now that my left arm is playing ball a bit better.  Rest day tomorrow and then winding it down at the weekend in time for Monday's triathlon.

Also, almost all of that extra kg is gone so I'll be ready to carb load on Sunday and put it all back on again in glycogen and water :o)

  1. Glad you enjoyed the cashew cookie bar!

  2. Thanks again! It was -really- nice; I think the best flavour of all of the Nakd bars I've had so far.
