Actually, there’ll be more than three words (although still not many – I have lots of pictures!) – but I just wanted an excuse to make y’all listen to this song:
One of my ultimate favourites 😀
Ok, now onto my Sunday! As I say, more photos than talk 😛
The day started with my usual snackage, then a super five mile run (which totally put me on a runner’s high for the day!), done in 43minutes. It went well!! I’ve been doing some walking recently whilst running (30 seconds a mile), but I did NONE today; twas tres pleasing 🙂 When I got back, I cooled off with a quick 1mile walk with my mamma and Poppy 🙂
Then, I had a lesson on both Chika and Tig today. Wanna see some Chika and I photos!? They’re not the best, but considering she’s been back in work for about 2 weeks after a 3 month ish break, she’s doing alright 🙂
It took me ages to work out, but we are actually walking in the next photo – at first I thought it was some weird trot canter hybrid 😛
Lol, there we go…my mum missed us!
Chika, Poppy and I – Chika didn’t smile and Poppy was scared of Chika…but still, a cute photo!
I love Chika! Of course, she was super 😀 And Tig was a good boy too. Two horses behaving in one day…a rare thing!
Lunch – very repetitive I’m afraid…
BUT – the SUPER DUPER part of lunch was my dessert…Ohmygosh it was amaze! Worthy-of-its’-own-recipe-page-amaze in fact. Let me introduce you to:
Pear and Papaya Pudding!
- 1 very ripe pear
- some chunks of papaya – maybe 1/3 cup ish
- approx 120g silken tofu
- a splash of milk – 1/8th – 1/4cup, depends on your preference
- 1 tsp agave/maple syrup
- 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Blend blend blend, chill for 25mins or so (in every sense of the phrase :p), and VOILA!
That, my friends, was DELICIOUS!! Make it now, please 🙂
After luncheons, my mum and I took a huge giant road trip. In fact, it took a full TWENTY FIVE minutes, can you believe…why the epic journey? To go see Chahara’s foal of course!
Good news guys – HE’S GOING TO BE OK!! The Powers That Be made his leg much, much straighter 🙂 My aunt actually has a theory – Chahara is a little mare, and Mr Foal (no name yet) was born 8 days early. His leg has straightened out in about 8 days…sooo, it seems he could well have been squished in the womb and came out a little ‘undercooked’ as my aunt called it. Seems reasonable! Anyway – FOAL PICS!
So proud looking:
Hehe, he wanted to go play with the big herd!
Attempting to graze….he looks like a giraffe!
And some more…
Trying to run!
A bit of the other guy…
Other afternoon stuff – mucking out, short reading walk, snack:
Then dindins!! Ultimate favourite meal was on the cards – tempeh, with a banana-peanut sauce, durum wheat (yes, *sigh*, AGAIN….I’m so dull :p), cocoa-agave veggies (including yellow courgette, which is DELICIOUS):
Dessert – banana bread and yogurt [later on]. The banana bread was lovely, BUT I think I used too much banana cos it was very very banana-y on the inside…I almost thought it was undercooked! But the flavour was there so that’s the main thing 🙂
And that’s Sunday done!
Woop woop, I had my first day of volunteering at the charity shop today! I’ll get onto it later though. First up in the day was my 3mile run, as per the marathon plan. It went pretty good- I did 5k as usual, and did it in 26.10, which is a good minute faster than I have been going! To cool off I just did a 1mile speed walk.
Breakfast was a Fake Cake of sorts; 1/2 cup yogurt, 1 cup cereal, 1/2 banana, cocoa powder, all blended up and topped with 2 tbsp Grape Nuts and some tree bark:
Gets better every time!
I took Poppy out for an hour’s speed walk after breakfast, as well as doing some hair washing and packing my lunch….
First up was my new favourite smoothie!
- 1/2 banana
- 1 very ripe pear
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- BEET LEAVES!
Yes, it looks like swamp water..but it was seriously delicious!! The beet taste really came through, but in a wonderful way 🙂 *sigh*. Disaster did strike though – I blended it, took the lid off, thought ‘aaah I’ll give it one more whiz’……but didn’t put the lid back on!
2nd part of lunch was this load:
A seitan sandwich – 1 piece of my favourite bread, with cranberry and caramelized onion chutney, cinnamon, salad leaves and seitan:
As well as some baby carrot sticks and courgette:
Good lunch 😀 The afternoon was spent at my first day at work 🙂 I would talk about it, but this post is already very very long so I’ll leave it…
And now dinner – smoked almond tofu, cocoa rice/spelt/barley, and nutmeg/cinnamon coated kabocha,turnip, parsnip:
Fantastique folks, fantastique!
Dessert – wait til tomorrow! It will be a good’un though 😛
Sorry for the epic length post and for the quick finish! But my computer is MAJORLY threatening to crash with all the info in the post :s soooo, good night!
