no thank you grilled cheeses

Dinner yesterday was delivery from Empire Chinese restaurant- no excuses for my laziness streak but I really haven't felt like cooking lately.
yikes for the crappy picture-- special chow mein noodles
sliced beef with green peppers in a black bean sauce- this was the yummiest out of all the dishes!!
special fried rice
chicken chop suey- I clearly wasn't in the mood to take any pictures as all of them are pretty shittaay!!
The food was aaiight.. nothing to write home to mom about.

Breakfast this morning: Grilled cheese sandwiches sounded like a good idea at the time but by mid morning I was feeling really nauseous and lethargic.. won't be doing that again!!
grilled cheese w. spring onions
The idea of grilled cheeses came about because we didn't have any eggs and I wasn't in the mood for oatmeal.. note to self: always keep eggs in supply!!
new reading material straight from the U.S of A!!
So I went back to Sports Direct this morning because my trainers for lifting/cardio turned out to be for flat footed people so I went and exchanged them for these cute pink ones :)
came back from SD to make myself a quick protein smoothie before hitting the gym for a powerplate class. Creamy, cold, and delicious smoothie deets:

  • milk
  • frozen banana
  • scoop of chocolate protein powder
  • 3/4 cup blueberries
  • agave nectar

I think the frozen banana made all the difference to the texture of the smoothie. It was the first good one I've made in a while!!
huge plate of leftovers for lunch!
Today was just one of those days that I couldn't really motivate myself to do much more than the powerplate class. My legs felt like jello and I kept trying to push myself to run but my body stopped after 10 minutes. FAIL!!! Oh well.. I'll just have to make up for it when I teach tonight. Today's the start of my first Tuesday's teaching Zumba in Finsbury Park.. Yippee!!!
