Business as usual

Christmas and New Year seem like distant memories now, and life's back to normal - thank goodness.

Training's done for the day and BOY, was it hard! I've been increasing weights and decreasing reps the past few weeks, but this week I'm doing sets of 15 - EEK!! Add in some treadmill running, interspersed with sets of box squats and I was a hot and sweaty mess. The gym's doing some renovations; let's hope it includes installing air conditioning. Meanwhile I'm test-driving a new gym on Friday, which should be fun. :)

I've decided that I seriously need to revamp my recipe repetoire. I've been very lazy lately, and consequently I'm feeling a bit bored with my food. Time to trawl through the recipe books for something new. I found a yummy-sounding recipe for Vietnamese prawn cakes last night that I'm dying to try.....think I'll hit the shops tomorrow and give it a whirl.

Right now I have an appointment with a tennis ball to do some myofascial release to try to fix the lower back pain I've been putting up with the last few days.

I was into the cooking thing recently. I did some good OP things with lentils, tofu (sorry) and tahini. Other good things with broccolini. Some more good things with grilled Mediterranean vegg, dry toasted fennel seeds and balsamic. I'll have to post them on my blog. Then there was Xmas and now i've got that blank how do you cook again? look on my face when i enter the kitchen. So i'm excited about your new food ideas!
