Fitness | What I ate in a day...

Generally I try to eat healthily 90% of the time. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. If it doesn't work, I don't punish myself and instead I start fresh the next day.

On this particular Sunday, I had started early with all the boring adult jobs that need doing. The jobs continued until the afternoon which is why there is brunch and not a separate breakfast and lunch. It's probably also not one of my healthiest days ever and some adjustments are required....but it's all a learning process, right?

Anyway, here is what I ate:

Brunch:

3 Sweet Chilli Sausages, Turkey bacon in a bagel and a cup of tea. Not what I had planned to eat but my eggs went out of date :(.

Snack 3: 

Carrot Cake Cookies. I think I had about 3 of these as I was shooting photos for their post. They taste pretty good but there is more on that coming up later this week.

Dinner:

A bowl of Turkey Chilli with some cheese and (not pictured) Wholemeal bread. One of my favourite recipes to make.

Snack 3:

Smarties - my favourite type of chocolate. I actually wish they would do away with the cardboard tube ends and bring back the plastic tops.

Chocolate milk and more Carrot Cake cookies (They are seriously tasty!)

Life | Teacups & Buttondrops turns 6...


So officially today I have been blogging for 6 years....6 years! Never once did I think that I would still be be blogging 6 years later and still loving every single moment.

To celebrate this milestone, I thought I would delve into my archives and bring you a random selection of previous posts from over the years. I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did but I can only apologise for the poor quality of photos.
