I have to admit that post marathon I have been a bit slack with the fitness and health routine! In fairness I have been on holiday for two weeks, and definitely think a well deserved rest was in order after all that training!!
However it has come to my attention that tomorrow marks a month since the marathon! and subsequently also a month since I had run anywhere! I love running so this is just ridiculous and needed to be sorted!!
First five miler last night and it’s fair to say it did not got well! For some reason I can no longer turn my neck without a lot of pain!! Good work so far!
As running home was now off the table this evening – I thought I better kick start my new healthy regime with a healthier diet to make up for lack of exercise! I’ve been meaning to try this Carribean Chicken recipe from the Weight Watchers Cookbook for a while now so it seemed liked the perfect night to test it out!
*I added some sweetcorn, but without this it came in at only 8 pro points per serving
Ingredients for 2
1tsps Olive Oil
Calorie Controlled Cooking Spray
250g Chicken Breast
300g Sweet Potatoes
1 Garlic Clove
1/2 red chilli, deseeded
1 Red Onion
1 Red Pepper
6 cherry tomatoes
4 Pineapple rings in natural juice
1 tbsp Sweet Chilli Sauce
And then just whack them all in the pan – the pineapple, cherry tomatoes, chopped tomatoes, sweetcorn and banana – and simmer for 10 minutes
Take the sweet potatoes out of the oven and either serve on the side or combine with the rest of the mixture.
