Ay, it’s the day before my longest run since my half marathon in March….I have 11 miles on the cards tomorrow! To be honest, I’m really really nervous. Running hasn’t really been going well recently and I’m very stressed about some other stuff at the moment, so I’m somewhat dreading it 😦 ohhh well. I better suck it up I think! ANYWAY – onwards and upwards!
I’m not normally absent on Fridays…but I completely didn’t have time to blog – work in the day, then cinema in the evening (and random jobs in between). Food wise –
An apple, wheatgerm and a date kept me going for my 5k run (26.50mins), and then it was onto breakfast. Yet ANOTHER green-less Epic Green Monster!! But fear not – I replenished my spinach stash today (Saturday) 😀
The g-less EGM was topped with granola crumbles, tree bark and dates, and a big blob of Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter was blended in the whole thing too 🙂
Very, very delicious.
Lunch-wise – a big roast veggie salad. Yellow tomato, celeriac, acorn squash, carrot and courgette, all roasted with tomato ketchup and soy sauce. Butter beans and the other half of the smoked seitan steak (from earlier in the week) completed the mix 😀
I added in a nooch sprinkle just before I closed the lid for good:
When I got home – after a pretty dull, uneventful, quiet day at work, I tucked into some cereal and yogurt, with some Hugh Jass strawbugs:
Hit the spot, ay 🙂
Dinner – cocoa lentils cooked with seitan and added soy sauce, with grey pumpkin, aubergine and parsnip:
Theeeen, it was off to das kino for TWILIGHT: NEW MOON! At. Long. Last. How long have I been wanting to see that film!? It was actually a little disappointing though 😦 the first half was pretty slow…but Kellen Lutz (sp?! Emmet anyway) more than made up for it 😛 Have any of you seen it? What did you think?
While I was there, I got some sorbet (sorbet is vegan! *Rejoice*) from the ice cream stand 🙂
Twas a planned day off today, so straight into breakfast I went – my final green-less EGM before I get to open my spinach :p
I used cashew butter instead of peanut butter in this mix, but it got totally lost – I couldn’t taste it at all! A waste of perfectly fine cashew butter if I do say so myself.
Still a fit-tasting breakfast though!
When I’d finished, I jumped straight onto Chika and took her for a fast 1/2hour hack. On the way home I just left the speed up to her, and she LOVED it! She bombed along with her ears pricked; so lovely!! And the best part is, she doesn’t pull either – my floppy reins and I were very happy.
As soon as mareface was done and dusted, Hannah and I went to collect a load of hay from my aunt’s house. Snack wise, I had 2 tsps of wheatgerm whilst making a bunch of phone calls when we got back, and before I knew it, lunch was calling my name.
Part 1 – I attempted to butcher neatly slice a beautiful sharonfruit:
Success? Yes? No?
I’m not convinced….I also had some roasted bean/corn things:
So tasty, and packed with salt – good for my run tomorrow 😛 Finally, I had roast acorn squash/leek/turnip/celeriac/aunt-grown beets and seitan (yes, more :p):
Verrrrry delicious 🙂
Randomly in the afternoon, I had the apple I was craving – not from hunger, just cos my body craves juicy fruit ALL. THE. TIME.
Snack wise (I use that term far too much :/) – I really, really wasn’t hungry, but I felt I should eat something to keep my carb levels up and so on. Soo I had a piece of seedy toast, with yogurt, a cereal sprinkle and some grated cacao:
LOVE that snack! It almost rivals cereal and yogurt…almost.
Dinner – another carb-fest! Kamut spaghetti, with a homemade tomato sauce, parsnip, grey pumpkin, aubergine and roasted spicy chickpeas….one of my top ten meals I believe 🙂 I’ll put the photos up tomorrow anywayyzzz.
My post-dinner job of the evening will be Poppy’s walk – I miiight have some cereal later, purely so I can – of course – keep my carb levels high. I REFUSE to give my body ANY excuse whatsoever to protest mid-run tomorrow – heck, I even bought some Lucozade Sport for the event!! WISH ME LUCK! 🙂 Any motivational tips!?
