It’s that time of week again friends! You know it…

…WIAW party time!! LOVE Jenn for doing this and I look forward to seeing everyone else’s WIAWs every week!! Mine is really What I…Tuesday but I’m just rebellious like that Winking smile


What I Ate

A few highlights from today!


Choco-Banana oatmeal with cacao nibs and a Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut butter spoon! That spoon I brought all the way back to the UK from a Jamba Juice in Hawaii! Smile with tongue out




Crunchy PB and mashed banana on toast- SO GOOD!!




Giant WW couscous, curried lentils, cucumber and cherry tomatoes. Followed by CARAMEL PUDDING with choc chips for dessert Smile


Afternoon snackage:


A Trek bar (refuelling straight after my run) and then a banana with PB&Co Cinnamon Raisin Swirl as a pre-yoga snack, and…


…figs dipped in TJ’s almond butter!! Open-mouthed smile




WW spaghetti with protein pasta sauce (1/2 block silken tofu+nooch+salt+spices/herbs) and a bowlful of broccoli. And dessert..


…my last packet!! I savoured every bite Smile


What I Worked

I had the BEST run today!!


I just felt so AMAZING the whole time! LOVE IT and I love my legs for not giving me any grief!!



Love means going the extra mile. So I went the extra mile to a shop and bought some ice.untitled

I’ll spare you the pictures Winking smile I didn’t do it voluntarily- my physio recommended I do this after speedwork and long runs for a while to help my muscles. I also did a BodyBalance class in the evening so I’m hoping no soreness tomorrow! 2773623927_7e2f9b6bae_o


Tomorrow is my momma’s birthday and I’m planning on waking up early to bake her a cake…I LOVE BIRTHDAYS!! Open-mouthed smile So I’m planning on giving her the Full Emma Birthday Treatment, which includes singing Happy Birthday 10000 times a day and taking her to our favourite restaurant where they stick a turban on your head, give you a Birthday Sorbet, and force the whole restaurant to sing a jazzed-up version of Happy Birthday to you:


My brother still hasn’t forgiven me for that incident Smile with tongue out


Best thing you ate today? Justin’s Peanut Butter Cups mmm…


What was your last workout? A run and BodyBalance!


What is your favourite thing about birthdays? CAKE! Obviously Winking smile And general birthday HAPPINESS!!


Have an AMAZING day friends!! <3

  9. Happy early birthday to your momma! I’ve had rather uneventful birthdays always (mine is always during our winter vacation) so my view of birthdays is skewed… but I love throwing parties and baking of course!

  10. Wowie I am ALL over that piece of toast with pb & mashed banana…sometimes the most simple food is the most satisfying…although I wouldn’t turn down any of your other eats for that matter :)!

  12. I’m slightly obsessed by that chocolate hazelnut butter, in fact I think I prefer it to DCD! I had an awesome 7 mile hill run this morning which was my best workout and the green smoothie that followed it was pretty amazing too!

    Your eats looks so good as always! I keep forgetting about figs, which is a shame cause they are so good! I havent tried to dip them in AB before, but I know I would LOVE it!
    Yey for good runs and strong legs! Take care of them! Last thing I worked out was a easy 40 minuts run and a2 hour walk this morning!
    Happy WIAW <3

  20. I’m so glad you had a great run! I was just wondering what to do with the figs I got the other day and I have my solution right here. Dip them in nut butter! :D My TJ’s almond butter is almost coming to an end. Need to restock. I’ve only had breakfast so far, but it was really good. Banana steel cut oats with pudding and granola. I think that’s my new favorite combination. Oh and happy birthday to your mum! :] Can’t wait to see the cake! My favorite part about birthdays, and the celebrating of course too.

  25. I seriously love looking at all of your eats for the day. But then I start drooling so it’s kinda an issue. Best thing I’ll eat today–I’m anticipating that I’ll be able to convince my lil bro to get fro yo (look at those rhymes!) so that would be the most yummy. Last workout-recovery run! Really relaxing but I got kind of bored…haha. Favorite thing about birthdays is making ridiculous cards and picking out gifts!!!
    Meg recently posted..What I wore, worked, and ate!

  26. Figs + TJs almond butter is my most favorite snack recently! Except I can’t seem to stop after just 2 or 3… :)

  32. Back when I was vegan, I used to make a pasta sauce that looked just like that! Except mine had blended chickpeas in it. So good!

    My last workout was spin class yesterday morning. It was deliciously sweaty. I feel like I can call sweat delicious on your blog, because you’re an exercise freak like I am. Hehe. This morning things are goin’ down in the weight room! Strength = sexy! :)
