After feeling so depressed today, I didn’t think I could salvage the evening. But I managed to do some cooking to process some of the GIANT AMOUNT OF VEGE AND FRUIT we were given. Tomato and onion base (herbs from the garden), vege and barley soup and some nectarines poached in honey.
The capsicums may not look like much, but they were delicious. Mostly stuffed with mushroom, a chopped tomato, a little almond meal, sage and oregano (and some tasty cheese because its Saturday!) When I sliced it open the scent of herbs filled my nostrils. The texture and flavour were great and it was a very delicious meal. I even have one left for tomorrow.
I tried out my new mandoline and I am in love. Just have to watch that razor in the middle.
I am mourning a little that I didn’t make anywhere near my 10, 000 steps today. Or even do any exercise. My calorie counter is looking sad – I’ve only got 74 calories up my sleeve, whereas over the last week its been more like 4-500. Oh well. I suppose this is what you get when you take a rest day!
You get a rest!
Today has also really made me think about when exactly I am going to do all this exercise and cooking I need to be doing. Which days will be my fitness and which will be my toning days? Is it reasonable to get up early or to exercise after work? How will it work in with boxing class? Should I add in pilates? (I hate pilates).
Food for thought.
