Where on earth does that expression come from? I know it means ‘not gonna happen’. I feel a google coming on . . .
“NOT ON YOUR NELLIE! (or NELLY) ‘Not on your life!’ An intensive tag, dating since the late 1930s. . . . Short for ‘not on your Nellie Duff!’; and ‘Nellie Duff’ rhymes on ‘puff’, breath of life, life itself. . . .” Says Sir Google
Every day is a school day 🙂
After my last post i decided not to go to the gym as the rain started pouring down and I thought I might do a DVD instead. It had been about 2 years since the last time I properly attempted Nell, and I found it sooo exhausting, so I thought it was about time I tried again. Hence the post title!
The location of the DVD was pretty good too, it was clearly a gorgeous day and the pool was nice. I prefer outdoor filmed fitness DVDs for some reason. This DVD is really hard, even the warm-up is hard but it’s pretty good for incorporating weight/resistance training in with cardio, I know I’ll be sore tomorrow. I skipped the upper body resistance session as my shoulder doesn’t like it. Though I did enough lunges and squats to have me walking like an old lady for a few days so that’s ok!
Lunch followed, I only felt like some toast and marmite, usually I want a lot more. I slept in today though and so breakfast wasn’t until half 10. I had this lunch at 2
Dinner was at 6- Sweet potato fries, sweetcorn and cod in batter.
I cooked 1 huge sweet potato so I have the other half for tomorrow’s lunch.
I missed my morning snack because of timings so I will probably have a big dessert in a wee while which will most likely be frozen yoghurt and strawberries.
My eats today are lacking in the veg department. I have plenty of fruit in the flat but I am pretty much out of veg. I am headed tesco ways tomorrow to pick up some things so I will be sure to pick up some veggie goodness.
I like to eat through the day so my main meal is still somewhere between 5 and 6 no matter what time I get up. I’m not sure why this is though! What do you do if you lie-in? Do you stick to the same numbers of meals and snacks as normal or skip one? I hope it’s been sunny where you are, we’ve had rain all day but it’s supposed to sunny tomorrow and I’m getting my hair done 🙂
