Pleasure Before Pain

I bought a voucher for a Hypoxi treatment the other day. It's a new, ahem, cellulite treatment where they encase the lower part of your body (the "fatty part") into a pod with a cycling machine in it. They seal you shut into it via a rubber skirt and you cycle your little heart out until you raise your core body temperature and start sweating. They turn on a vacuum inside with the idea of increasing circulation around your cottage cheese bum and thighs so you whack those fatty deposits out and burn them off.

But I digress.



What I really want to talk about is this awesome spinach and feta Texas Muffin I got next door  at Coco Bella Espresso in Ascot. I hadn't had breakfast and the Hypoxi "therapist" told me I should eat something first before I started my session.

It was melt in your mouth, warm and butter and yes, everything IS bigger in Texas!

And yes...a muffin before a training session, I'm aware of the irony. Weight loss...fail. But gastronomy...success!!
