Mule Almighty!

Goodness where has this week gone?! Hello sweet readers, how are you?
As you know I started at the gym this week and its been long days so I just haven't had time to drop in sorry! I hope you have all had a fab week and are looking forward to your weekend?

My week has been weird I had no idea how hard this was going to be and have been doubting myself all week, but I'm not going to beat myself up as its only week one and I was just getting a feel for the place I guess? I have big plans for next week but for now I'm just gonna chill for a couple of days. I'm off to Manchester tomorrow to see Roisin Murphy of Moloko and can't wait!

So I guess your wondering about the title of my post? Well the lovely peeps at Mule bar sent me the most generous package of their energy/recovery bars which are made from 100% natural energy. I have tried a few already and have to say I'm liking them very much. Chocolate fig fiesta was yummy : )

I also love the packaging!

Summer pudding energy bar

I liked the taste of the bar especially the little bits of fruit : )

After the past few days I've been eating: chocolate protein oats + almond butter, rice salads, coffee, cauliflower and lentil stew, blackberry oats, noodles with egg and veg, banana and muesli, mackerel.........

I have been loving the exercise too: running, PHA training, spinning, pump..........

Today started with a pudding breakfast!

Vanilla + carob protein oats with almond butter and carob chips!

Thank you Debs for my carob chips : )

I set off early to Brighton today and gave myself a private spin class, ipod on a complete sweat fest! I was also shown how to use the TRX bands. Oh my god this is the most amazing exercise equipment ever! I loved the tiny demo so much that Sunday I'm going to go and destroy myself on them! Love it! If you get the chance to train with them I highly recommend them.

For lunch I had noodles and veggies with a sesame oil dressing

I also had a chocolate banana refuel mule bar, yum : )

Spent the afternoon making a pretty cool business plan then home

Dinner was cauliflower and lentil stew with an egg and ryvita's

I love winter foods : )

I finally used the fig I bought the other day to make a fig and vanilla smoothie

Oh my am tired really tired its been a little over whelming this week to be honest so I am glad to be having a couple of day of fun to take my mind off things. I'm off to Manchester with my bestie Wayne and can't wait we're staying there tomorrow night after the gig then back Saturday. No plans as yet for Saturday but I'm pretty sure I'll be hitting the sack early!

Have a fab Friday my sweets x x x


What is your favorite exercise equipment?

New favorite TRX bands, I also love the bosu and stability balls and kettle bells


  1. I really want to try the summer pudding mule! must keep my eye out for it in the shops.

    My favourite bit of kit has gotta be weights. I'd be lost without them!

  2. I'm glad you have some fun weekend plans after such a crazy week. I love your photo montage of your eats. Looks delicious. I totally want to try these bars- they sound fantastic. ENJOY it. Favorite piece of equipment...hmm step?

  3. Hope you enjoy seeing Roisin Murphy, I love her style! My favourite equipment has to be free weights!

  4. Oohhhh so jealous you get to see Roisin - I love her! Take lots of photos x

  5. I've heard a lot about TRX bands, but I've never come across them. I'm just about to move gyms, and am excited by the wider range of equipment there. Think in the end though my favourite piece has to be the squat rack :D

  6. I've tried the apple and cinnamon mule bar and it was lovely. I had no idea they had loads of other flavours. I think they must be quite hard to find as the only place I've seen them is Whole Foods.
