Exciting times!

Hellooo lovelies!! Smile

I am so SO excited right now!! You’ll see why in a mo…that’s if you didn’t see my Tweet and guess! Smile with tongue out

Oh and I loved hearing your thoughts on my running epiphany yesterday, and why you run! And thanks as well for the applesauce tips you guys- never occurred to me that it would be easier (and cheaper!) to make it myself! Smile with tongue out

Breakfast was delicious- whipped cinnamon-banana oatmeal with dried blueberries on top.


Banana + blueberries = pure blissDSC05881

Today’s lunch to-go-go was leftover’s from yesterday’s dinner: lentil stew with spicy tofu. Doesn’t look appetising, but it was yummy and chocca full of protein and fibre SmileDSC05884

One of the things I get asked a lot is how I handle eating when out as a vegan. Unless I am eating out at a restaurant with other people, I usually just take my own food. Not only easier and hassle-free, but cheaper too! I usually make more than I need for dinner, then refrigerate/freeze and take for lunch the next day.

Also, there’s a serious foodgasm alert! If you haven’’t already done so, make these.DSC05907

Gina’s chocolate chip protein ballz! These are so quick to throw together (literally a few minutes and they’re done!), have just a few ingredients, are full of protein and goodness, and are unbelievably yummy. I may have eaten almost the whole batch…! Smile with tongue outGO, PEOPLE AND MAKE THEM NOW!!

Today was a BodyPump day! I worked hard today, really pushing myself, and managed to make it through the bicep track alive! Score! Open-mouthed smileMade doubly good because a cute guy said hi and chatted to me at the end! Winking smile

So now for my exciting news! Okay, so I’ve overhyped it, but…

AAAH MY FIRE SHOES ARRIVED!!! Open-mouthed smileDSC05898

There are actually angels in my head singing the Hallelujah Chorus right now!! Is it lame that I am this excited by running shoes? I say no, because they are racing shoes, and they look this cool:DSC05906

They are soo light (literally about half the weight of my normal Asics!) and even the soles are amazing!DSC05904

Haha and check this out:DSC05903

I. Love. Them. DSC05900

Seen enough photos of them yet? Smile with tongue out I can’t wait to run in them tomorrow!!! Open-mouthed smile

So I’m off now to eat dinner, and the last of these…DSC05911

…and then to bed, possibly still hugging these…DSC05914

So what ‘little’ things excite you that most people would find strange? Apart from new running shoes+gear, successful kitchen experiments is another thing that really excites me! On that note, there’s hopefully a perfected cookie recipe is coming at ya soon…!

And what was the last exciting purchase you made? Well after these of course, I’m gonna have to say the Lindt 85% dark choccie which I bought today! Smile with tongue out

Friday tomorrow! Have a great one friends! Open-mouthed smile

  1. Hooray for new shoes! Love the writing on the bottom too!
    By the way, I think that 230g lentils (in a box so soaked) would be about 80g dried lentils looking at the nutritional stats. 🙂
    I get excited abour everything much to the amusement of everyone around me- nice work on the biceps track too.

  2. I totally love it when I find something “rare” in a health store. The other day I picked up some brown rice syrup and coconut flour. I was so darn excited! 🙂 I’m loving your blog! xx
