At least that's my excuse for not posting for two weeks!
Last time, I was just about to do my first 10k, which was an absolute scorcher of a day. I did the race in 51:29 which I was pretty pleased with in that heat. We have no photos, sorry!
This week has been a bit crazy food wise, too much ice-cream and chocolate! I have had some tasty, healthy food in between.
Pre race dinner:
Salmon, kale, potatoes
Italian desserts made by our friends and sold at the farmer's market (flourless chocolate and rum for me, blueberry olive oil cake for him, plain yogurt)
Pre race brunch- organic sausages, leftover potatoes and kale
Dinner- organic ham hock soup
Roast lemony chicken, turnip mashed with kale and some coconut milk
Salmon and parsley en papillotte with roasty potatoes and steamed cabbage
Goat cheese duck egg omelette with roast broccoli
Homemade organic garlicky herby lamb burgers with collards in balsamic and soy sauce, lots of yummy black olives
Organic rump steak, onion and collard stirfry with the same balsamic+soy sauce combo
We have had lovely weather here, really very warm, like a summer's day in mainland Europe! Speaking of mainland Europe, we've organised our holiday, we're going to Andalucia in Spain for 11 days, but not until early September. Anyway, something to look forward to, and the weather's great here at the moment.
As well as walking, I've been doing lots of bodyrock, and this week I managed my first ever regular chin up! So happy:)
I'll be back later this weekend with a post about IBS and how I got around mine.
I'm away out for a walk in the sun!
