Blossoms

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.

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!

Move

Finley at metafitFinley 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!

Wear

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.

Love

Sancutary Spa products

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…

James buying me The Staves and Laura Marling’s new albums // going to see Avengers movie which was AWESOME!! // general awesomeness of the Fabulous YOU course launch // iced lattes // sunshine // Finley finally sitting up without losing his balance

So yep, I have been feeling a bit sorry for myself this week, but I am feeling much better. Just a little reminder for me to make sure I get more rest I think!

How has your week been? What have you been loving this week? What are your favourite foods when feeling under the weather?

    I can’t get enough of Mexican food lately either. Mexican bowls for the win!
    Chocolate spread with olive oil? Sounds really interesting. Those gluten free pancakes also look amazing.

      That spread is so good, I think I need to try and recreate it!

    Mmm those wraps look delicious- I love something like that crammed with veggies and lettuce and avocado.
    Glad you are feeling better now, and as for the running, as I said before you have loads of time, so don’t stress about it.

    I love taking naturally sourced vitamin c, carrot and ginger juice and hot baths with essential oils in and i tend to have to eat often when I am run down – I get more hungry than usual for some reason:) Glad you feeling better!

    Sorry to hear you had a bit of a bumpy week – fingers crossed next week is so much better. Chocolate spread with olive oil sounds unusual but seriously amazing and indulgent, do tell more! I’m totally jealous of all of those Sanctuary Spa products – they do some lovely things. I love that 5 Minute Thermal Detox Mask, it really is fantastic at drawing out any impurities and just giving your skin a bit of a boost. They have a lovely body lotion too with ginger and jojoba that is heavenly. Enjoy!

    I’m currently feeling exhausted having worked non-stop all week for Uni work and work work – I feel I could collapse in a heap! My favourite food to cheer me up, and currently too, is without a doubt strawberries – I’m loving that British strawberries are already available! For a super treaty update, 1tbsp nut butter of your choice + 1 square of dark chocolate (85% is best), in a ramekin, melt in the microwave and have it as a nutty, creamy dip with your strawbs – yum!

    Hope you’re feeling better Laura! Definitely best to take a rest, better to recuperate than push on (I need to remember to tell myself this once in a while!!). Love your Body Shop post :)

    Hope you’re feeling better! Sorry you’ve felt so rubbish.
    But I’m so pleased you’ve found a good running plan – takes the stress out of it a bit :-)

      It really does make a difference knowing I have a plan to fall back on!
