Virtual Me

Got this link from WW Challengers. My Virtual Model. Here's what I came out with - it's pretty good! Although scarry when I think about how big I used to be!

Then

Now

Soon


But I've been ever such a good girl today and actually got off my ass and gone to the gym - even though Yorkie is home, which I have always used as an excuse to not go in the past.
I got there about 9.30ish this morning all set up for a long gym session followed by a chill out in the sauna. I thought I better check out when the pool was going to re-open, and guess what! It's already open! Hooray!


And better still it's open to the public from 10am til 2 pm on a Monday! So I had the chance of a gym session AND a swim. And it gets even better! When I got up stairs to the gym the lady who does the Aqua Fit was on the desk and told me the class would be running today from 11am till 12 noon, and that's it IS one of the classes covered by my membership!


So I'm thrilled to bits with this. Did about half an hour in the gym, just doing my warm up, streches and weights, including 100 crunches on the weighted "Total Abdominal" machine, then I went for an hours swim (earning myself 3 WW Bonus points) and joined the Aquafit class (Another 3 Bonus Points).


Aquafit is SUCH a laugh! And not as easy as it sounds either! I thought it would be an easy option compared to normal areobics, but it's not! You're supported by the water so its easy on the joints, but the water resistance makes every movement harder so you can feel yourself working the muscels too!


Afterwards I went for a half hour long sauna, enjoying my free coffee and the chance to get my breath back before hunger got the better of me and I had to come home.


I feel SO full of energy now too, like I could take on the world and win! I've had a nice big ham and mustard roll, and a cheecky bag of cheese and onion french fries, and now I guess I'll have to settle into the whole work thing again. I've texted Andrea to let her know the pool is open and that Aqua Fit is great, hopefully she'sll come with me next week, but even if she can't make it the other ladies in the class are very friendly so I don't think I'll have a problem keeping going.

There's another class on a wednesday afternoon that I am THINKING about going to as well, instead of the Wednesday Gym session (or maybe as well). Andrea wont be able to make that one because it clashes with her picking the kids up from school, but there's no reason why I can't do both!


OK, I've droned on enough for one day. Going to get on with some work now.


Laters all!

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on
