Happy Tuesday Friends!
This should really be a Monday post but I just don’t know what happened to the day, somewhere between starting on a new programme at work and getting my life in order it just got lost. So instead, I’m bringing my weekend run-down a day late.
I had such a lovely relaxing Saturday down in London with some equally lovely friends. We went for a delicious breakfast at a way above average cafe over in North London, called Sunday.
I had avocado, tomato & poached egg on sour dough toast,
washed down with a refreshing mint tea.
I finally took my first trip to Wholefoods and was in my element…
I left with a bag of treats including my first ever Spaghetti squash that I will be cooking tonight.
We then went to a stunning bar/restaurant called the York & Albony where we treated ourselves to a bottle (or 2) of pink champagne, some scrummy bar snacks and a girly gossip!
It was then back home for a naughty takeaway and off to bed for an early night.
After such a chilled weekend and a well deserved break from the gym and a strict diet, I’m excited to get back into my training gear and head back down to the gym. I’ve decided to try and re-adopt some healthy eating & fitness habits I had & loved when I first started on my journey.
Firstly, I’m waiting for the rain to stop so I can get back outdoors and start running again. I love the feeling of running in the crisp morning air or a late night jog around the city, only to come back and slide into a hot bath with a magazine.
Secondly, I’m going to start adding green smoothies back into my diet. I used to love these and I seriously don’t know why I stopped making them. You can see what went into my smoothie below…
Finally, last month I listed a few goals to focus on and hopefully complete by the end of October. I really pushed myself in the gym up until I pulled my hamstring and managed to accomplish 80kg in my deadlift. I was stuck at a plateau for so long with this lift, which made this such a great personal achievement… so even though I didn’t achieve my other gym goal of my first pull-up I am still progressing in my journey and will continue throughout November.
