Oh my god I was dying on Sunday, nothing less than I deserved after drinking so much the night before 😦 But I was feeling pretty sorry for myself. My OH came through to pick me up in Edinburgh as we had a few errands to run. On the way home, and on my way back to my gym induction I might add, we stopped at a van for something to eat and I had, wait for it………. CHIPS AND CURRY SAUCE. What the hell was I thinking? It wasn’t even that nice but you know what it is like when you have a hangover and all your body is screaming for is grease. Well I ate it, felt sick coming back in the car and then had to run to make my appointment at the gym. I had been waiting a week for this appointment so I couldn’t cancel 😦
Luckily Chris, my instructor, took pity on me and let me take it easy. So I made it through the hour long semi-torture and now I have my routine for the gym sorted for the next 4 weeks. First day, Monday!
Well after the gym I walked on very shaky legs to go and get some supplies for dinner and then headed up the road. Promptly jumped into bed and whiled away the afternoon watching films. I watched the Freedom Writers, which I am currently reading, and I have to say it was fantastic. I think I had a lump in my throat the entire time, I thoroughly recommend, if you have time, you watch this film!
Anyway after an afternoon of feeling sorry for myself I dragged my sorry ass out of bed to make dinner. I made chilli, the recipe for which can be found here. I decided since I was “ill” I needed comfort food so I decided to make some mashed potato’s to go with the chilli. I know it sounds wrong but I tell you when you don’t feel great it is fantastic! Add some half fat cheddar and this is what you get:
