Happy Monday! 😀
Did you have a good start to the week?!? I’ve been working on my presentation today. The way I see it is that it’s only 20 minutes of my life and like some of you said the audience isn’t there to pull me down and criticise me. I’m just going to grab the bull by the horns and go with it. All I can do is give it my best shot, and if that isn’t good enough, well at least I tried.
Although I’m not going to imagine any of them naked or in their underwear when I give my talk. Some of the academics are old men and ladies people…I mean come on..Ha!
For breakfast I had some super brain food in the form of chocolate and banana oats topped with PB…
This bowl of deliciousness included 1/2 cup of oats, ground flax, a banana, hazelnut and almond rice milk, organic cocoa powder and water. As well as PB I also sprinkled on some pumpkin mix for some CRUNCH.
For lunch I bought a Tuna and Three Bean salad bowl from Marks & Spencer’s as it was on some promotional offer, so I thought why not.
I also threw in some cute apricots and a pack of omega sprinkle into the mix too. The salad was lovely, but not amazingly.
In the afternoon I headed to the gym for a workout to break up my day a little. I did a 30 minute cross country workout on the cross trainer and 30 minutes on the sci fit, step machine and the treadmill, plus abs and core work. I did a short 10 minutes of intervals on the treadmill to test out the knees and they seem fine. I’ve missed running so much. All being well, I will go out on a short run on Wednesday morning, so I think lots of yoga and stretching is required for tomorrow.
Just remembered that I forgot to post about Friday’s workout: 30 minute hill climb on the cross trainer and 30 minutes across the bike, step machine, and adaptive motion trainer, plus abs and core work.
Tonight’s dinner was a tasty and delicious Coconut Spiced Vegetable Soup…
This really delicious, especially with brown rice at the bottom of the bowl to soak up all of the soup. I will blog about the recipe later this week! 😀
I have two weddings to go to this summer and I have know idea what to wear. The brief I set out for myself is that I wanted something simple that is easy to accessorise and wasn’t too fussy. Also, it has to be budget friendly as I have to buy an evening dress for Alfie’s Grad ball too. So far I’ve bought two dresses that fit the brief perfectly:
Blue floral dress, Zara at £39.99
Printed strapless dress, H&M, £29.99.
I really love both dresses for different reasons: the Zara dress is rocking my favourite colour blocking trend and the second dress has the same print on it as a dress that I saw in LK Bennet for 4 times the price. I can’t decide between the two, knowing me I will end up keeping both.
Which one would you wear to a Church wedding?
What would you accessorise each dress with and what colour would the accessories be?
