Leaves and boots

It’s certainly been feeling a lot more autumnal in these parts this week! I just adore this time of year and I’m reminding myself to enjoy it as much as possible which this week has included some blustery but bright walks with Finley in the pram.

Eat

I’ve been on a porridge kick this week and my favourite way to eat it has been topped with Coconut Collaborative yoghurt! This was chocolate oats (just plain oats with cocoa powder added) topped with raspberry coconut yoghurt and a fig:

I also made toffee apple porridge topped with peanut butter. I used coconut sugar to sweeten the porridge and give it a toffee like flavour:

Juci wellbeing

Last but not least I was sent a 3 day detox range of juices from Juci Wellbeing. Obviously I didn’t do the detox with me breastfeeding but I did drink them along with my usual eats for a fruit and veggie boost!

Move

Outdoor gym

No structured workouts this week, not even 10 minute ones, however I have done some more walking! Yesterday morning James and I took Fin on a long walk and came across this outdoor gym which I thought looked quite fun for something to use in the future. Of course I had to have a go of some of the equipment quite hilariously for James!

Love

Durham

On Friday I tucked Finley up in his Kari-me wrap and we had a walk around Durham. I got myself a chai latte from Cafe Nero and looked around the market and the shops while Finley slept snuggled in to me. He got lots of comments from passers by! It was just so nice to be out and about with him after the last couple of weeks we’ve had. Also…

How has your week been? Are you feeling autumnal yet? Have you seen or tried an outdoor gym before?

    Feeling very autumnal, especially here in Ireland! Having a wonderful time away and enjoying family time so my week is great! I have tried the outdoor gyms near me I think they’re great to change things up x

    It’s feeling really autumnal here now – I even baked with pumpkin yesterday!
    I have only ever seen outdoor gyms on holiday! They seem like a great idea though.
    I had toffee apple french toast yesterday for breakfast- seemed like a great flavour combo!

    It’s almost summer here and we are currently having a long weekend of glorious sunshine! It’s been a loooong winter :-) so I am excited for BBQ’s, more beach time and it staying lighter later. I have never tried an outdoor gym but I am keen to try something new soon – I have my first half marathon next week since having my daughter almost 2 years ago so once I’m done with that I might have a break from running for a little while! Enjoy autumn with Fin and lots of lovely long walks!

    Madness – I’m drinking a chai latte in cafe nero right now! Great minds ;) there’s something about the changing season that makes novelty flavoured drinks so appealing…

    Love the look of those toffee apple oats too – I’ve started craving oats for breakfast again so this might be the gateway bowl!

    I must try that toffee apple porridge idea, it looks delicious! Definitely feeling Autumnal, with waves of feeling Christmassy too… I get overexcited…

    Sometimes simply walking as your form of exercise is the best! The toffee apple porridge sounds incredible, I’m having such a craving for apple crumble right now but the porridge sounds divine and of course, you’ve got to add a good blob of peanut butter to it! Do you cook the apples/soften them in any way? If so, when do you add them in?
    Can’t wait for your next podcast, I loved the last one.

    Oh yes i have tried out the outdoor gyms before but i have always keeled over laughing – so that has always prevented any exercise but I love the idea of them though!

    We have an outdoor gym thing near us…not sure if I’d ever use it! Right out in the open and a bit chilly! Hehe but I do think they’re a good idea. I could probably motivate myself to go use it in the summer if I felt so inclined. Maybe a quick run there, do some bits and pieces, and run back.
    Lovely boots! I love that it’s that time of year when the boots can come back out – oh and nice thick tights :-)

    I love Autumn so so much so I’ve been making the most of it despite being a bit windy at times too! So gorgeous :) And you look gorgeous too lovely!

    Oooh that toffee apple porridge with PB sounds so good! May have to recreate that soon!!

    Haha I’ve just been reminded of that outdoor ‘gym’ by the quayside in Newcastle..the worst place to put a gym when everyone is legless down there haa! :)

    I’m not surprised Finley received loads of attention, he is such a little cutie <3 Glad everything is moving along with him and his op too :)

    Yay, glad you got the book! Hope you like it! :) xxx

    Can’t get to the outdoor gym equipment in any of the parks in Ealing, it’s very popular and well used!

    Now it’s dark at 5pm, it really feels like autumn! It hard not to go to bed at 9pm every night.

    Durham looks lovely and autumnal in that picture! I’m just getting used to the fact summer is over, it is nice to pull out the winter wardrobe!
