New Tattoos and a Blogger Meet Up

I seem to be saying this a lot lately but where has the week gone!? The days have flown by since my last post on Wednesday but I can assure you I have not been neglecting you on purpose I've been super busy! I have been training clients, training myself, looking for jobs going to interviews as well as having a blogger meet up.  I finally have some time to sit back and right a post to share some yummy meals and my new tattoos! 

First up food...........

Giant coconut and blueberry smoothie was enjoyed. I haven't had a smoothie in a bowl for a while and definitely felt the need this was so creamy and delicious. I used full fat coconut milk, spinach, wheatgrass, frozen blueberries and a couple of drops of vanilla stevia, perfect! 

Today I enjoyed this bowl of chopped apple, 1/2 banana and almond milk topped with dry toasted almonds, coconut, pumpkin seeds and cinnamon

I made my first ever turkey burgers the other night which were so easy to make and even easier to eat! I  mixed some turkey mince with 1 chopped red onion, dried garlic, coriander and herbs then lightly fried in coconut oil. We ate them with salad and red nut pesto

This was the next days breakfast, leftover turkey burger, scrambled egg, cucumber and avocado, great way to start the day : )

We have been eating lots of chicken, above is garam masala chicken with salad and and sweet potato 

And this I had today for lunch, turmeric and garlic chicken n a raw grated salad.

So as you can see the food round here has been pretty good even if I do say so myself! I love that my food is so colourful : )

Now onto some other fun stuff! Look who I met up with yesterday......

Laura! She is staying in Brighton with her aunt so I got to meet up with my blogger bestie! We got a coffee and sat in the sunshine for a good old catch up and chin wag. I love meeting up with Laura, we get on really well and share the same views on so many things I just wish she lived closer. We didn't have much time so next time we will have to make a day date! 

And finally my new tattoos! 

I had these new additions on Tuesday. I got two cats one on each wrist at the back. 
I love them so cute!

And this beauty is on my right forearm. Gosh I am so pleased with this, my friend Ben who has done a few of my tattoos puts so much into his work. The tattoos are so detailed and perfect its a pleasure being tattooed by him! I will post some more photos of the tattoos in daylight once they have healed : )

In other news there is still no definite's on the job front, I had an interview yesterday which went quite well but you just never know with these things. I am waiting on another offer which is basically my dream job and I have all fingers and toes crossed that I can get it and when I do I will be telling you all about it but until then my lips are sealed! 

I have tomorrow off, I plan a morning workout then when Dale gets back from fishing we are going for walk. Pretty lazy Sunday really just the way I like it! 

Right time to snuggle up with Sid (my adopted cat if you didn't know!) on the sofa and watch a film. Have a lovely Sunday peeps x x
