Pear and avocado smoothie

Hey everyone, hope you are having a wonderful Sunday! It looks like it’s going to be a nice bank holiday in the UK tomorrow too. This week has been crazy busy for me, whenever I get back from a holiday I’m catching up, and with an added trip down to London in the middle (more on that in a sec) I feel more than ready for a relaxed bank holiday! Yesterday James and I headed to Newcastle and of course we had to pop to Olive and Bean. I’d already had eggs and avo for breakfast so went for the pear and avocado smoothie, yum!

The reduction in sugary sweet foods has been going well. I did treat myself to a post presentation frappe, and eat a small slice of cake on Wednesday, but that’s been about it :-)

Move

Not a great week workout wise, all I managed to fit in was a metafit class and a long walk on Friday. Next week I start a training plan for the Great North Run so I’m not beating myself up on having a more relaxed week as I know things will be getting a lot more active over the coming 16 weeks!

Wear

Mama and baby fashionMama: gold sandals: Primark, trousers: New Look, t-shirt: Zara, necklace: Present in Brighton. Baba: Denim shirt, blue chinos, nautical bib and t-shirt all H&M, shoes: mini club at Boots

I bought those pants in Brighton and love them, such a nice relaxed fit and they go well with loads in my wardrobe. I’ve also been wearing that necklace non stop! 

Love

Talk healthy to me

As some of you might have read in my newsletter this week, I was down in London to give a presentation to some big brands on healthy eating. It was a fab day, I travelled down on the train (upgraded to first class for just £10!) and my presentation went down very well so I was chuffed. Although I do get nervous, I love public speaking, especially when I’m so passionate about the subject! Also…

Other than tomorrow (when I plan to enjoy a BBQ with the fam and some yoga with Jo) next week looks like another crazy one as we are getting a new bathroom fitted along with several other bits of work in the flat. I’m not particularly looking forward to the mess, but can’t wait for the results, even if they are just so we can sell the place!

How has your week been? What do you have planned for the bank holiday? Do you like public speaking?

    Sounds like a great week! I hate public speaking usually! Although I find that once I’m into it I calm down and enjoy (?) it. But well done on your talk :) This bank holiday I am studying mixed with some home yoga and going on some walks. Have a great weekend! Lx

    Congratulations on the post going well, so exciting!
    Also can’t believe you put the dentist on your love list – I have total white coat syndrome + am terrified of dentists… I haven’t been for a few years now which I know is really bad :(
    Your meals look delish as always (especially the curry!) and it’s lovely to see Fin looking so sweet + adorable!

    I must try that M&S Salad – YUM! I was in there during the week and didn’t spot that one so it must be popular. Well done on your presentation! I had a presentation at work in the week and I was pretty nervous too, but once you start talking and ESPECIALLY if you are passionate about what you’re talking about, you just fly really and it’s fine.
    Love the trousers by the way, I’m really enjoying khaki coloured clothing right now.

    Tomorrow I think (don’t hold it against me if it doesn’t happen!) I’m going to do some YouTube videos, ah! So fingers crossed that’s done. Plus I’ll be doing a big workout session – a mix of a POPSugar Workout and some Yoga with Adriene. Hope you have a good bank holiday!

    Well done on the presentation, I had one on Monday on my nutrition course- I didn’t really mind giving the presentation, it was the having to work in groups and people not doing their part which annoyed me!

    Well done on the presentation! I am still terrified about having to speak in front of people. The peanut butter and strawberry wrap looks so good! x

    Very pleased your presentation went well :-)
    I really want to get a pair of the harem style trousers but I’m just not convinced I can pull them off you know? They just look so comfortable… I might shop around!

    Well done on the presentation- I think I totally missed this being away.
    I hate public speaking and dread things like presentations to parents, staff meetings or even assemblies when parents are there. I don’t mind it when it is just children though. It’s part of the job though, and the more I do it, the more I realise that the worst does not usually happen!
