new cookbooks, arrived yesterday

I have personal training this morning, so a great way to start the day. While I'm not feeling too energetic just yet I am looking forward to it, especially the stretching exercises ... I know I'll feel wide awake after the session and I definitely need to be moving around more. 

I'll only have some fruit before the session (so my stomach isn't empty when I take my daily meds) and will have a brunch/early lunch when I get back. This is the one day where meal times aren't ideal ... it's the Canasta group this afternoon and they meet at 1pm so I need to eat much earlier than normal. I usually eat my midday meal between 1:30pm and 2pm but today will need to eat at about 11:45am so I have time to let the food settle and have a hot drink, get ready without rushing, and leave early enough to pick up JL on the way. I am enjoying the Canasta group though, so it's worth it!

I finished off my meal planning after the new cookbooks arrived so I'll cobble together a shopping list tonight. If I can get a slot for tomorrow I will order online and have it delivered but if not, will go into town tomorrow morning. I need to restock my homecooked meals as the freezer is looking rather empty and this is a good week to get started on that ... there's nothing in the diary until Friday.   


  1. I take it you bought one of those Instant Pots, I must have missed your blog posts about it. Have a good day doing your exercises and playing canasta and enjoy the rest of your week. xx

  2. I think new cookbooks are such fun - have a great time with yours and I'm looking forward to seeing and hearing about some of the outcomes. Have a lovely day. xx

  3. Your new cookbooks look interesting! Sounds like you have a fun day planned, even if it means having to adjust meal times a bit. Hope the grocery shopping goes well and you have a lovely day. :)

  4. Hopefully both your new cookbooks provide endless ideas for meals. I've just read an article about the importance of first thing stretching is so important & good for you, not just before exercise. I need to follow my cats lead on this :) Hope you have a good day.

  5. yes so that is for me in the early evening, when i have a yoga class, the not feeling to energetic beforehand, but while at it and afterwards feeling great!

  6. I'd be interested to know how the meals turn out.
