The weather has been so lovely over the past week or so. It’s been a far cry from the grey clouds and snow from not so long ago. Lighter mornings, blue skies and sunshine hopefully mean that Spring is on the way. Although it’s still a bit nippy outside and you still have to wrap up warm it’s nice to see the sun shining again.
I got a glimpse of my first signs of spring on my Sunday afternoon walk.
For this week’s WIAW link up party I’m going to share all of meals from Monday. I started the day with a workout at my new gym. I’m still just going with the flow with my workouts and I’m still loving this approach to exercise. On Monday morning I fancied a strength workout with 10 minutes of cardio before and after my strength training. The workout lasted for about 50 minutes.
When I got home I made scrambled eggs and fried some smoked bacon for breakfast. This was so tasty! Alfie had the same thing except with toast and he really enjoyed it too.
Mid morning I took a break from studying and made a chai latte with coconut oil. I cannot get enough of caffeine free chai lattes at the moment, yum!
I decided to have a working lunch and made a wonderful spinach salad. It included spinach, a chopped peach, organic French brie, plain almonds and dried cranberries…amazing! Using spinach leaves instead of normal salad leaves makes a nice change and a great way to get more iron into my diet.
The temptation of some barbecue flavoured Popchips was too hard to resist!
Later in the afternoon I snacked on a couple of apples and had a lovely mug of nettle tea to see me through the afternoon.
I also had one of the Alibi pretox drinks in the citrus flavour. This reminded me of the carbonated bitter lemon drinks my Nan used to buy ages ago.
Dinner was pretty fantastic! I steamed some broccoli and added some roasted squash to some smoked tofu, plantain and some sauerkraut. Ok, so it seems like a bit of mash up of different flavours, but it tasted really good!
Dessert was a couple of squares of blueberry dark chocolate. I love this chocolate so much. It’s definitely become one of my favourite dark chocolates.
I must have studied really hard on Monday as I ended up falling asleep on the sofa in front of the TV. Ha! That makes me sound so old, oh well, it will all be worth it I’m sure.
It’s so exciting to think that spring may be just around the corner. I’m so tired of dull and grey skies. I’m also looking forward to swapping my wardrobe around and getting my spring/summer clothes out, but I think we will have to wait a little for the temperatures to rise.
What are you looking forward to the most about the arrival of spring?
