Yeah she does.
You know who needs to relax? Chika baby:
I adore taking photos of horse eyes 🙂
Poor thing, she is SO tense at the moment – after the hunt came through ‘our grounds’ (as the posh folk say :p) the other say – horses, hounds, horns – she’s been a tight ball of tension 😦 Soo today, to RELEASE the fury, I just took her in the school loose and let her do her thang 🙂
Ok, now I got a little carried away :p
How can you not get carried away, photographing Chika!!?? Good gosh I love this mare.
I lova ma baba.
BOOOOOyeah. I finished testing all my five year olds for my dissertation project todayio! And let me tell y’all, what a RELIEF to have that job done! It was kinda fun today – the five year olds I worked with were super sweet (and smart as buttons) and so keen to do the task. AND the school was SO lovely – it made me want to be a primary school teacher! Seriously, it was impossible to feel sad in a school like that. Bright and airy and fun feeling. *Sigh*
Before I left, I fitted in (is that a phrase, ‘fitted in’? Hmm) a workout – Jillian Level 3 30 Day Shred, and a few random other circuits and sections, total time – an hour. I ate a monster apple before, and then had some delish oats after 🙂 Today, I cooked them with a scoop of Vega vanilla-almond mix for an added protein hit:
That would be my own personal crack cereal on top. I’m a cereal addict when it comes to brown crunchy varieties…
`Twas horrendously yummy.
On the side, I had a lil baby orange – now I simply have to show you this photo, as living proof that I could peel the whole skin off in one piece 😀
I still feel so very proud of myself, when I manage that 🙂
Then it was school fun, THEN a baby pear, which I started to eat and then had to chop up cos I still have that nasty mouth ulcer 😦
The sting was worth it though! That beast was full of juice 😀
THEN there was a walk/run, THEN I made a real, proper recipe!
Curried cauliflower rice and lentils!
Hmm..I’m not sure whether to do the recipe today, or do it in my next post as this one is already photo heavy…..maybe next post 🙂 Here’s a taster:
I was actually really quite proud of myself for making something so tasty and different! Maybe I’m clawing my way out of that silly food rut I’ve been in!!?? Herrrre’s hopin’.
Afternoon activities included horsey playtime, flooding the field with water after I forgot to turn the tap off [filling their field water] for the second time today – I like to do my bit for the environment…! -, and baking mocha chip muffins, minus the mocha:
They turned out pretty well considering I didn’t have any soya yogurt, so subbed with 3tbsp soya milk soured with lemon juice 😀 genius right!? I got that tip off of the comments bit on the webpage 🙂 Oh, I am so resourceful sometimes.
So I got my green in me today too, in a form other than muffin cases – a banana-kale-chocolateVegaMix-soya milk green monster:
Doesn’t everyone top their smoothies with bran flakes? No? Just me? Oh ok.
Which was the carby greeness to balance out a chocolate-ofied meal!
Cocoa roasted veggies, with tofu marinated in cocoa balsamic vinegar. Bliss.
(by the by – if you’ve never had a green smoothie, I urge you too! You can NOT taste the green! Start with a handful of spinach, 1/2 – 1 c. milk, and a banana (plus cinnamon, nutmeg, peanut butter – whatever you fancy) and go from there. It’s delicious!)
Obvs I continued the chocolate theme with proper good dark chocolate for dessert 😀
But now, bed time calls me. it’s 11pm on a Friday night, and I literally feel like I’m going to pass out with tiredness. Since when did I become such an old lady!!??
Question: Favourite way to relax?
When do you go to bed? Are you an early bird or a night owl?
