Well last week we had floods and this week we had snow!
Not that I’m really complaining, I think the snow just makes me feel even more in the mood for Christmas :-)
It’s been a pretty standard week for me, but I’m on leave today and Monday so I have a lovely long weekend, yey! Workouts have been pretty good…

- Friday: Gym workout – 10 minutes on each – cross trainer, bike, step machine, rowing machine
It was good to get back to yoga after missing last week although I don’t know how I manage it in those classes but by goodness I was aching on Tuesday and Wednesday!
Omelette with almond butter and jam, Home made apple and cranberry sauce (just chopped apples, frozen cranberries, a little water and agave cooked down) with full fat organic cottage cheese, Sweet breakfast scramble with chopped plums and tahini, Omelette with bacon, sausage and wensleydale cheese plus spinach, Lunch at my desk – cauliflower soup, corn thins with peanut flour sauce and a sliced persimmon, Salad with butternut squash and hummus
I also got back on the green smoothie wagon after yoga on Monday:
I realised that I hadn’t had a green smoothie in ages. This was so good! Kale, frozen blueberries, chocolate sun warrior, cacao powder, maca and unsweetened almond milk topped with dried mulberries, gojis, cacao nibs and coconut. I ate a lot more dried mulberries on top too, love em!
I also had this delicious dinner last night:
Maple balsamic baked tofu with a roast sweet potato and tahini plus coconut oil stir fried brussel sprouts, yum yum!
