Back at home

Tuesday morning I woke up at around 7am.  Not quite ready to get out of bed yet, I managed to stay there until after 8:30am.  Usually once I am awake, I tend to leap out of bed and start the day but since I am currently on holiday, I am making the most of lounging around.

When I did get out of bed, I fed Oscar and Riley and then made myself the usual mix of oats, peanut butter, soy milk, flax seeds and agave nectar.

The weather was looking decidedly average, yet still felt nice and mild (especially compared to a few weeks ago).

I completed around 10mins of circuit training at home before setting off with the boys for a nice long walk/jog.

We started off at a very slow jogging pace (they are so little I was worried I would tire them out too quickly!) and mixed it up between that and walking.
Of course, they wanted to sniff everything in sight so we did a lot of doubling up on sections we already walked around ;)  

Needless to say, when we returned, the little guys were knackered.  They drank loads of water and passed out on the floor for the next hour or so.
Don't you think they look like moustaches or eyebrows?  It is also pretty hard to tell which end is which!

My post run refuel was Fage 0% Greek yogurt, some Alpen blend muesli, a small banana and some agave nectar.  Very filling and just hit the spot.

During the afternoon I caught up on a lot of computer type admin work.  I also got this amazing nail polish for Christmas so I decided to put that on my nails while watching around 3 7 episodes of The Girls Next Door on E!.
 Just before dinner, I decided to prepare some of my Protein muffins for snacks during the next few days.  Knowing I will be off work, I tend to snack more than at my desk.  I don't know if it is out of boredom (no matter how not bored I am) or just because I can, but I do tend to snack more when I am at home.

So if you are the same as me, get prepared and make yourself some healthy snacks so you are not wasting all the good work you have done.

I also decided to tackle a recipe from BodyBuilding.com and will be posting that soon!

What are your go to snacks while you are at home? Do they differ from your work snacks?
