So, I made all this on Sunday on my last day off. I took a rest day from the gym as I realised I hadn’t taken a day off since boxing day. I took the day to get rid of the Christmas tree, clean the flat and food prep for the week. Getting rid of the Christmas tree is almost as good as getting it in the first place! My flat feels so big now! It made such a huge mess getting it downstairs we spent 3 hours cleaning up pine needles! Another thing I bought and tried today is stevia. I have heard so much about it being a great healthy natural sweetener. I eat loads of 0% fat greek yogurt and this works great with it and has 0 calories! I found the spice mix for the chicken on this website.
