Happy Sunday! This week has definitely been a mixed bag for me. Subscribers to my newsletter will know I’ve been feeling a bit poorly and run down this week, although thankfully I feel much better now after some rest. A couple of days of not much moving has been helpful, although I still enjoy walking Finley to nursery especially when we have pretty blossoms to look at in the early morning sunshine.
Overnight oats with chia seeds and almond milk topped with mango and coyo coconut yoghurt
Green smoothie with spinach, apple and banana
Choc cherry oats with almond butter and amazing chocolate spread with olive oil!
Gluten free pancakes with almond butter and (not very tasty) strawberries
Sweet potato with feta and purple sprouting broccoli
Butternut squash, feta and courgette egg muffins with spinach
Wild salmon with new potatoes, butter and broccoli
Salad with butternut squash, feta and avocado
Chilli with sweet potato and black beans topped with avocado
Buckwheat wraps with home made refried beans, lettuce, avocado and salsa
I’ve been on a bit of a Mexican food kick this week. Those buckwheat wraps were so good! Chilli is always one of my favourite meals when I have a bit of a cold, I added some home made chicken bone broth into the mix for extra cold fighting properties too!
Finley watching us at metafit!
- Monday – 25 minute walk
- Tuesday – rest
- Wednesday – Metafit class + 1 hour walk
- Thursday – 10 minutes yoga + 25 minute walk
- Friday – Metafit class + 1 hour walk
- Saturday + Sunday – Rest
I started to feel a little better on Wednesday or pushed myself to go to Metafit class. Thursday I felt yuck again so skipped my planned run for some yoga, and then on Friday I was feeling much better so went to Metafit again. I did probably push myself to go as classes are off next week and I love them so much! This weekend I decided not to run and to try and just recuperate fully. I’ve found a really good looking beginners half marathon plan which I can start at the back end of May, so I feel much calmer about my recent lack of running!
I wore this yesterday for going to the cinema, a snap shot if you will! I bought those boots and the (maternity) cream coat from H&M in Brighton last year when we got caught in the horrid weather and they turned out to be great buys. Worn along with some leggings, the stripy dress I shared last week and my trusty back pack and I was sorted.
I received an amazing box full of Sanctuary Spa products as a welcome to the their blog team! I took some time out while Finley was at nursery to have a lovely bath and use some of these goodies. It feels like forever since I’ve had the time to enjoy a relaxing bath! Also…
