Weekend indulgence

It is apparently a universal phenomena that when going on holiday you are overly optimistic about how much time/motivation you will have to work out. On a weekend away with friends, the girls planned to go for an early morning trail run and the boys bought P90X & Insanity DVDs. None of these activities occurred. I was slightly disappointed about missing a run on Sunday morning as the weather was glorious and a run would have been a great way to explore the area,  but as it was, the general overindulgence of food and booze may have got in the way of enjoying this view…

I also surprised myself by making both vegetarian and meat pizzas and preferring the vege version!

I used my tried and tested pizza base recipe by Lorraine Pascale, available online here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/prosciutto_mozzarella_98052

with the following toppings for the vegetarian version:

  • tomato puree
  • roasted red peppers (I used the brand Karyatis as they have a spicy edge which is just delicious)
  • green pesto
  • spinach, cooked in a smidgen of butter
  • mozzarella
  • cheddar

Unfortunately I now have the taste for overindulgence and my hard won pre-mini break loss of 8lbs has diminished to 4lbs and counting. Must must must get back to the gym.
