The Galaxy cookie crumble was for Liam
I've only opened the mint and the sea salt so far but they have been featuring in my snack plates quite a lot. I'm impressed with myself though - I've managed to stick to eating two squares at a time (admittedly sometimes more than once a day) which is a huge improvement for me. I always worry when buying chocolate that I'll eat it all immediately!
A couple of snack plates that I've managed to capture on camera...
|Lindt mint chocolate, brazil nuts, dried strawberries and blueberries.|
|Lindt sea salt, apple and a sauce made up of peanut flour, cinnamon, agave & milk.|
I loved the peanut sauce with today's plate. I keep seeing Courtney eating honey cinnamon peanut butter and this was pretty much the same thing. So tasty and, as I have a big bag of peanut flour in the cupboard anyway, it's much cheaper than buying lots of different jars of flavoured nut butters!
I haven't actually taken many photos of my eating today. The children and I had a chilled out morning at home. They watched Anastasia DVD and I did the annoying thing of taking photos of them...they looked so cute!! ;)

Then this afternoon we went out for ice cream (I had a latte, but also some of Toby's lemon meringue ice cream, yum!) before Izzy's swimming lesson. I hadn't been planning to take her as it's half term
Once we got home, I made pasta bake for the others but didn't eat any myself...as I was going to the gym! Haha, first time in ages. I'd actually been thinking of cancelling my membership but now I'm going to give it another month to see how often I go. Tonight I went with my sister, Sarah, which was good motivation - now she's moved back to our town I'm hoping that I might start exercising more often again...she's a good influence! And - the exciting exercise mentioned in the title - Sarah mentioned that she and her boyfriend were planning to go to Body Pump on Friday so I'm going to tag along! After reading about lots of you going to Body Pump I've really wanted to go, but our local gym doesn't do the class. I
Have you ever done Body Pump? What should I know?? How do you decide what weights to use? Etc etc!! And any other recommendations for "fun" classes to try? Once it gets warmer I want to start swimming again too - that's one exercise I do actually really enjoy, but the thought of the 15 minute walk home in the cold with wet hair is not appealing at the moment! Whenever I say that to my Mum, she does point out that I could dry my hair at the pool so I suppose that is a bit of an excuse!! ;)
