Have any of you guys been following Wimbledon? I just watched the quarter final match between Andy Roddick and Lleyton hewitt – it was such an exciting and tense match! It’s weird, tennis is one of those games I hardly every play yet I love to watch. Especially when Wimbledon is on – the whole country goes crazy for it! Good weather plus good tennis makes me a very happy blogger indeed.
Annoyingly, I forget to take my camera to work today. But luckily I’d snapped most of the days eats before I left the house. Breakfast was (of course) a bowl of Kashi Go Lean. The picture below shows the cereal as I took it to work – now imagine it with skimmed milk and chopped apricots and you’ll have some idea as to what the final meal looked like!
I had the apple as a mid-morning snack, along with some rice crackers and a cappachino. My thoughts on my first Kashi experience? I loved the cereal, but I didn’t find it very filling at all – my stomach was rumbling about two hours after I ate. I had about a cup full – how much do you all usually have? Next time I have this I’ll probably add yoghurt and some nuts to bulk it out a bit. And have a bigger bowl!
Luckily lunch was quite early as I had a meeting at one. Seriously, who schedules two-and-a-half-hour meetings for lunchtime?!
I made this wrap before I left the house this morning. In it I put hummus, spinach, tomatoes, cucumber and yellow pepper.
All wrapped up and ready to take to work…
I always find it so hard to get wraps to stay together – it took me about three attempts to wrap this up!
I treated myself to a cookie during the meeting (not the healthiest choice I know, but it was free and I was hungry!) After it was finished I was still starving. Fortunately I had this lovely fruit salad waiting for me in the fridge. I can’t get enough of fruit salad at the moment, so expect to see another one tomorrow! This time I had strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and grapes. It was divine!
Tuna steak was on the menu for dinner tonight. I was going to just have it grilled, but then decided to make some salsa to jazz it up a bit. So I chopped up some red onion, cherry tomatoes and yellow pepper and stir-fried them in a bit of olive oil.
The finished product…
The tuna was grilled on the George Foreman (I don’t know what I’d do without one of those things!) and I steamed some broccoli to add some greenery to the place. You can’t really see the tuna under all that salsa, but I assure you it’s there!
It’s about 8.30pm here at the moment and I’m debating whether or not to go for a run. I’m tempted to just have a lazy night in to be honest – I feel so drained of energy in this heat. Apparently June was the hottest month we’ve had in this country for three years. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining – I’m just not used to it!
Question of the day: What’s your favourite sport to watch? I love tennis and football (soccer).
