Hello.

Ask me anything   I'm Emma O. I spend my days drawing, coding, eating, running and moaning. I've lost about 70lb and ran my first half marathon last year and will be training for my first marathon this year so I talk about running and weight loss quite a lot! I have epilepsy and tend to rant a lot about that. Oh and I like porridge/oatmeal a little too much...

Belated What I Ate Wednesday.

Breakfast: Overnight oats with strawberries, blueberries and half a scoop of vanilla protein powder.

Lunch: Salad with pastrami, roasted butternut squash, cucumber, tomatoes and spinach. A banana.

Dinner: Porridge with peanut butter, maple syrup and a banana. A slice of the boy’s meat feast pizza.

Snacks: 2 cups of coffee with milk (not pictured), cup of tea (not pictured) and a white chocolate and macadamia nut clif bar.

Dinner happened after I’d had the seizure and wasn’t in the mood for making proper food (plus we really need to go shopping). The boy ordered pizza and I caved and had a slice, I picked the smallest slice though…

Another seizure. It’s been 9 bloody days.

Damn brain.

Finally got my hands on the white chocolate and macadamia nut flavour!

Have to admit, I’m a tad disappointed. It’s a bit too sickly sweet for my liking…

Chocolate chip is still in the lead.

YES THANK YOU.

Out of all my married friends, us included, not a single one of them cuddles at night because at bedtime men turn into fiery space heaters from the pits of hell.

yup

Can confirm

I call Pete lava skin

Even with the air and fan on, the heat is strong with this one.

Jeremy and I only share the bed one night a week, but we ARE NOT cuddlers. We are both hot sleepers and need our space. (We sleep with a/c and a fan all year long, pretty much.) He even pushes all the dogs on top of me and then I wake up mid heat stroke with sweat drenched hair.

YES! Had to reblog. The boy refers to me as the human radiator and I also move around a lot, it takes me ages to get comfortable, cuddling is not practical! The only time we’ve managed to fall asleep cuddled up was one freezing winter when I lived in a terribly insulated house.

I think I deserve an award for most boring salad.

Spinach, cucumber, tomatoes and roasted (burnt) peppers. I’m not sure what I was thinking when I made this…

That’s the same with Bristol! You can’t live here without gaining some serious thighs :)

I think Bristol wins. I was there visiting a friend a couple of weeks back and he lives at the top of one of the steepest hills ever. My legs were aching by the end of the weekend! You guys have got some seriously impressive hills.

I got these Belvita breakfast biscuits in my great Yorkshire run goodie bag but they were crushed to pieces so decided to use them as a sorta granola on my fruit and yoghurt this morning. Was tasty.

I love how they’re marketing them as a breakfast biscuit though. You’d probably be better off just eating a digestive.

Wasn’t until I’d finished eating that I realised ‘Oh biscuits… flour… wheat… gluten…’ I guess I’m bound to have a few slip up along the way. I’m still not sure how strict to be or how long to test this gluten free thing out for…

Also while I was walking from the gym I overheard a girl saying ‘If I’m going to work in Sheffield I’m going to have to quit smoking, these hills are horrible’. Glad we’re making folks healthier! Ha! I’m sure everyone who lives here has legs of steel.

My shins hurt from yesterday’s 10k!

My shins have never hurt from running… it feels weird.

I’ve ran a 10k, made roast dinner (with gluten free stuffing and gravy!!!) and the boy has done some DIY. This is what every Sunday should be like!

Great Yorkshire run complete. About 10 minutes slower than last year but happy that I managed to run it all.
