Hi everyone! I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
Yesterday I went to Manchester to my baby nephew’s naming ceremony and was playing with my little nieces for most of the day. Those girls really do have some energy as I was exhausted when I got home. I love spending time with my my family and friends, it was a really lovely day.
The rest of my weekend has been spent chilling out with lie ins, movies and working today.
This week has included an awesome range of meals, so I’m just going to screen dump them all.
Vanilla Alpro soya soghurt with kiwis, pineapple, apples
Pear and Almond Green Smoothie based on my Almond, Pear, Pumpkin smoothie, but without the pumpkin
Peanut butter Cherrios with strawberries, a banana and Kara coconut milk
Lime and Coconut Curry with auberinge, mixed vegetabes and soba noodles…amazing!
Muesli with a chopped pear, strawberries and soya milk
A snack plate of grapes, raw veggies, hummus, soft cheese, almond thins, spicy almonds
A new snack and obsession from iHerb…so good!
Of course salads are never too far away in my list of eats and this one has to be my favourite from the week. It includes mixed leaves, carrots, tomatoes, avocado, red kidney beans and Sabra hummus. The buttery avocado went perfectly with the beans- definitely a great combo!
Oats with soya milk, fresh strawberries, figs and banana with maple syrup- such a fab breakfast!
It’s also been a great week for workouts too:
Monday: Yoga podcasts courtesy of Yogadownload.com, plus lunges, squats, chest presses and abs.
Tuesday: 15 minutes of high intensity intervals on the cross trainer and a 1 hour of Body Pump class
Thursday: 20 minute of high intensity intervals on the bike and cross trainer, strength workout 1 and 5 minute cool down on the step machine
Friday: 3.5 mile run plus abs and core exercises.
Saturday: 20 minutes on the cross trainer and bike, strength workout 2, cool down on the step machine.
I managed to increase my reps on my strength workouts this week for more of a challenge, but I think that I need to change my strength workouts up to challenge my body more, which I think that I am ready for. I have found some great workouts that I cannot wait to start this upcoming week. I’m excited already!
This week I have been going crazy over all the strawberry deals in the supermarkets at the moment and have definitely been making the most of them. I do love strawberries in every shape or form and I think they have to be my favourite berry with blueberries coming in with a very near seconds. I cannot wait for the summer for British strawberries to be in season again!
What is your favourite berry?
What have you been getting up to this week?
