Yaayy! Brit Chick Runs is up and running at last! After a few emails back and forth between me and Mr Tech Guy @ WordPress that is…I managed to work out the ‘quick’ method of importing all my info from Food Fitness and Freya over to here, but it kept telling me there was an error, or only loading half up…very frustrating! But, minus about 30 or so random comments and a few posts, everything should be working smoothly….
I’m just really quite sad that I’m at zero hits again 😦 I loved getting to over 10,000! Ah well :s
So, Sunday – EW!!
It’s SO SKANK outside! Raining heavily (the stables are beginning to flood) and cold and windy 😦 I was originally going to go for a run, but I scrapped that plan and instead just did some DVDs in my living room (after I’d had an apple and so on..I’m sure you know the drill!). It’s meant to be sunnier from Tuesday, so I’ll pick up running again then 🙂
Breakfast was somewhat delayed…my sister is competing Tig today in some showjumping, so in the morning she was cleaning all her tack, boots etc (hence the bags and mess everywhere :p) – she’d opened up the cupboard under the sink to get some stuff out, turned her back…and Carter went in! Except, the cupboard under the sink doesn’t have a back all the way up to the top, so he went over the edge, and disappeared! Like, completly vanished :s and he doesn’t know his name yet!! We have NO IDEA what happens behing the cupboard (ie if it links round to all of the cupboards or what :s) so we were pretty worried!! Eventually, after about 10minutes, we managed to get hold of him by the scruff of his neck (we couldn’t see him, it was a case of GRAB when he went past!) and drag him out. Phew!! He obviously had a great time, cos he kept trying to get back in:
Bless!! Kovac meanwhile was still mega cute as ever – he loves bags!!
Ready to pounce….
When I eventually did get round to breakfast, it was the usual: 1/2cup oats, 1 cup ++ milk, banana, nutmeg and cinnamon, and topped with 1tsp PB, 1/3cup Quinoa O’s and 2 tbsp Grape Nuts:
I ended up not riding – not only was it pouring, but Chika had put her back out after Wednesday’s escapades (though my mum is a horse back therapist, so she sorted it pronto :D), so she got a day off. So it meant I had an hour and a half free….I BAKED! At last, it’s been so long!! I did an apple cake:
Thankfully I did switch to a metal spoon before I folded in the flour 😛 We need that air!!
Apple slices were pressed into the batter, before I sprinkled it liberally with cinnamon sugar:
And baked it for 25mins:
I sent my mum and sister away with a wedge just before they left with Tig to go showjumping 🙂
Then came LUNCH! Albeit a very late one, I didn’t finish it til 2.50…. But still – I had 2 of these vegetarian burgers:
Which were baked in the oven with some cauliflower (I can’t believe I’m even typing that, considering my disgust for the vegeatable…funny how tastes change!), broccoli, cherry tomatoes and kale (added at the end), all covered with soy sauce and dried mixed herbs. I also aga-squished some swede and parsnip chips, then topped it all with 1/2tbsp Nutritional Yeast and a glob of brown sauce:
Nothing like a burger and fries on a cold day right!!??
On the side, I had a very very generous 1/2cup serving of Quinoa O’s (25g – what they call a serving :))
And the last 3 strawberries, with some mango chunks:
Lovely fresh finish to my meal!
And unsurprisingly, I now have to dash – Chika is neighing the roof down, so I better go turn her out so she can vent in the field, instead of in the stable :s
Have a good Sunday afternoon 🙂
