i. want. those. abs. :)
I got to sleep in today till 6:30am which was really nice, after having 4 days in a row of 5am shifts. Though i still feel like I can SO go back to bed right now. But I really don't want to waste the day so I still got up early. It's crazy how 6am is a sleep in for me!
Yesterday I worked in the morning, came home and basically crashed. I felt like a ZOMBIE. I am house sitting for my parents at the moment & their dog (though gorgeous and beautiful and cute) WON'T. STOP. BARKING. it just paces around the yard hyperactive.
anyhoo brekky yesterday was my rye toast/peanut butter/banana/honey combo and a homemade mocha
lunch when i got home was:
a protein shake
3 egg omelette with spinach, rocket, chilli flakes & parmesan cheese
I topped my omelette with some tomato salsa
after gobbling this down, i passed out on the bed for a good hour and a half.
then i had to drag myself out again because it was gym time :)
after the gym, visited ASN because Nick needed a new tub of Xtend, stayed for a chat with the boys then rushed home to cook dinner
on the menu:
Steamed asparagus & broccolini
It was soooooo good, i haven't had fresh salmon in a while & canned ones just do not compare.
this dinner was so quick and easy.
I used Masterfoods Moroccan seasoning which you can buy from the supermarket herbs & spices aisle
hope you guys have a good day, the weekend is almost here!!!!
looking forward to my bestie's baby shower and.. (randomly).. Pash party afterwards haha should provide some good laughs :)
