I love a quickie!
Especially when I am tired…so it’s just a little one tonight…blog post that is…my other half might get annoyed if I talk about quickies and little ones!
Today has been fantastic. Another day with the coaching crowd at uni and I have come away with lots of think about…but more importantly I have come away with some great feedback surrounding my coaching and my abilities etc. So things are going well and it is reaffirming my decision for a career shift. I will write more about it tomorrow as one of my personal development ‘things’ is trying to reflect a little more…so I need time to do just that.
There are two quickies that I thought I would share with you though…
The first is a shameful one, but I will share it with you anyway to show that I still have major food issues! Last night, my Tefal Actifry broke during the middle of dinner, so I quickly threw the syn free chips into the oven. When the rest of the dinner was cooked I took the chips out. However, some of them were still quite raw-looking. Any of you with food issues like mine will probably guess what I did next…yep…I chose the cooked ones for myself and put the raw-looking ones on my other half’s plate! How bloody awful is that?!
Whilst he was making his way through dinner he said, “I think we should eat the burgers and then I will stick the chips in the microwave.” Bless him, he is so bloody lovely and was so innocent to my evil chip plan. I felt awful, so confessed – half laughing and half crying as I did so. What a bloody terrible thing to do?! If he had done that to me I think that I would seriously have thrown the plate across the room…another example of a food issue and food rage that I still have within me.
Luckily – as he is such a bloody top boyfriend, well fiancé – he was not bothered…but he did say that I had to put it in my blog as an example of the type of behaviour I put him through. So here we are…don’t come to my house for dinner as you will end up with the shite bits!
The other ‘share’ for the day is that I have been a lazy madam. We were planning on going to the gym when I got back from uni. My other half got bored at lunch today though and went and did his session. He text me to tell me, but told me that he would still go with me if I wanted to go…but that the decision was mine.
Given that I am now at home in my pyjamas, I think you can guess that I did not go to the gym. I had an awful night of sleep last night, and it was a long day at uni. Gosh – you can hear the excuses tripping off my tongue, can’t you?! The simple truth is that, tonight, my pyjamas were calling me and I wanted to be lazy. I will ensure that I complete five workouts this week though…two down, three to go!
One of the issues here is the planning thing. Once I have planned something – going to the gym together – I like to see that plan through. If I get given an ‘out’ then I still find it hard to resist. As I sat in the car having an internal conversation – do I go, do I not go…the old me says pyjamas, the new me says get your arse to the gym – I spoke with my Dad…he told me to go and relax…and that was that. It was a good job that I decided to ignore his suggestion of cake at the weekend!
Other than this, not much has happened today. I was up really early, showered and at uni bright and early. Tonight I got stuck in traffic and got caught numerous times singing my heart out…to Justin bloody Timberlake! I am now on series 3 of Prison Break – and the tension is getting to me…Netflix really does have a lot to answer for!
Breakfast: Quorn sausage wholemeal rolls (2 x HEA and 2 x HEB).
I was nice and organised for uni in terms of food. Last night I prepared my rolls – the syn free Quorn sausages with spinach, tomato and cheese – which I enjoyed once I had arrived at uni. Lunch was also prepared last night and was more of the sausages chopped up and mixed with roasted red onion, pepper, courgette and spinach, and a packet of Ainsleys couscous. Dinner was lovely. I buggered up though as I had planned the broccoli and cauliflower cheese but had forgotten this when putting cheese on my breakfast rolls…so I synned the LowLow cheese sauce that I had with dinner. This was put with Quorn fillets, and my stock-baked potatoes, onion and carrots. So no syns left for the evening really – but to be honest, I felt comfortably full anyway and didn’t really feel the need to snack.
Exercise: Not much today – just mooching across campus a couple of times.
Thank you for reading…normal service will resume tomorrow!
