Afternoon cuddles

Holy Heck! Is it summertime in London or what? I don't think its been this hot since.....uhhh...umm......I don't even remember when! The sun is shining and people are outside in summery outfits. Sweet :) I went shopping today and enjoyed my last few days of freedom before classes start next week. I'll be attending classes full time this year from Wednesday-Friday. My Wednesdays are going to be the worst since I'll be in class from 9:30-6p.m.! Eek!
tuna salad from Pret after my PUNCH class yesterday.

So funny story, I told my instructor yesterday that I was going to skip some of the high intensity circuit stuff in between our punching combinations due to personal reasons. Oh and and when I say high intensity, I mean balls to the wall, give it your all until your face is red and sweat is dripping down your back! Throughout the beginning of class, I made sure to take it easy with my partner and not over exert myself. With the circuits, I did most of it but skipped the duck walks and walking pushups in between so I could catch my breath. After all that caution, my partner straight up leaves during the middle of class. And since our class was uneven, I paired with my instructor and did all sorts of fun, kick ass :) but high intensity combinations that included elbows, kicks, knees, uppercuts, jabs, hooks, etc.  I know I said no high intensity but I just couldn't help myself. Sometimes that adrenalin kicks in and you just have to deal with it. I'm sure this sounds familiar. In all seriousness though, my recommendation for people who are injured or can't do something high intensity and worry your instructor won't take you seriously, make him/her aware of why you can't do something, and in the worst/easiest case scenario, say your doctor told you not to do it.

We were lazy last night and ordered Papa John's in. What a deal for any pizza, any size, for £9.99. After dinner, I ended up falling asleep while trying to read in bed. I'm still working through this damn Optimum Nutrition book!
Blueberry oats for breakfast since we ran out of bread and I DEFINITELY can't eat eggs without bread!
In the mix:
  • 1/2 cup soy milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • frozen blueberries
  • maple syrup 
  • cinnamon
  • dash of salt
topping: almond butter for muah
lunch this afternoon was the jalapeno chicken wrap from Pret. It was mighty tasty!
Oh bt dubs- did I already mention a Pret opened up right near our flat? :-)
