Last night was foodie overload, full on calorific, none clean, none colourful, foodie overload..
Indulgence is fine; a few times a month I really enjoy being very indulgent and I try not to feel too guilty about it. The previous week had seen me celebrating turning 30 and lots of celebrations, meals out and treats were consumed and I’ve loved every moment.
As you will know life is extremely busy for me right now, so I was delighted when the lovely Rachel offered to share her tips on how she stays on track with her diet and balances a full time career with a long commute. As someone who used to spend two hours a day on the road, I know for a fact it can become rather testing and when you come home from a long day the last thing most of us feel like is setting aside a hour or so to make dinner.
Take it away Rachel… Continue reading
I had a wonderful and very mixed day yesterday, in the morning we got up early, put our scruffs on and joined our friends for my first ever paint balling experience. If I took one thing away from the whole process it was that paint ball’s really hurt in the backside and in the neck (oh my goodness, that was incredibly painful).
In the afternoon I went kitchenware shopping, this is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time and I was so excited with the anticipation of filling my kitchen with new items. It’s taken me a long time to become a home-owner, whilst my fella work’s endlessly on tiling and assembling showers etc I have taken to mowing the lawn, pulling endless amounts of Ivy off the outside walls and dreaming about remodelling my kitchen.
So that’s me.
I was going to run a race, you know one of those big event’s with thousands of people and me?
I’m the one who’s colour co-ordinated my outfit, who’s trying to look calm but worrying inside and spending too long thinking if the ‘Hilly’ on my compression sleeves look’s like ‘willy’.
The internet, it’s a huge, (sometimes) weird and wonderful place and I’ve collected a small selection of my favourite read’s from the last couple of week’s. This is a collection of advice, interesting articles, a workout and some incredible recipes that I’m really keen to try.
Over the last month or so time has been very precious to me, I’ve been burning the candle at both end’s and keeping a level of fitness/health has been hard.
Along the way I’ve had to tweak my workouts, plan my eating as carefully as possible and find the time to fit in all my other jobs. I know not everyone will want to get up at 5/6/7am and start working out, I know not everyone likes or wants to run or feel’s ready to lift weights.
I’ve made the choice to pop together a series of posts that focus on lifestyle tricks, a mini workout (that can be completed at home) and a recipe or two, which is healthy, fast and minimal cost.
