Seafront Runs and Savoury Food

My god isn't it cold!? I don't know about you but I am really feeling the chill at the moment so I have been warming myself up through some good old exercise! If I get up and get moving it seems to sort me out for most of the day and gets the blood pumping so I am not as cold as I might be having done nothing. 

It may be cold but it hasn't stopped me getting out and jumping back on the running train, as you know I love to run but too much and my shins start to hate me so I have been doing walk runs this week along the seafront which seem to be fine, I've managed to do four which is pretty good if you ask me. Along with the runs I have been doing some strength training at home which has left me pretty sore but in a good way, I love me some DOMS! 

As well as upping the workouts I've been upping the veggies too and I am loving my meals this week, they are making me feel better after the over indulging. Me and Dale did a strength workout on tuesday night followed by a little run and to refuel had a yummy bowl of gluten free pasta topped with spicy tomato veggies and feta..delish! 

One lunch time I fried some sprouts and eggs in coconut oil and again had a little feta which is such a gooooooood combo you gotta try it! 

My favourite meal this week has got to be this cabbage, carrot and onion salad with tuna, olive oil and balsamic vinegar really simple but so flavoursome! I shall be making this to take with me for dinner tonight cause its an easy transportable meal that is filling and super tasty : )

I did another seafront run this morning at 6am with a client which set us up for the day. It was cold, windy, wet and dark but we went anyway, good right?!

Today is my first sleep in shift at work and I am excited to get the first one done, I am sure I will find it pretty strange at first but I am looking forward to it all the same. I also have my medication assessment today so fingers crossed I pass!! Its all very exciting to be honest and I am loving the new job and can just feel this is going to be a good year! 

Have a great weekend readers x x


Are you upping the exercise this month?

  3. With scenery like that, I'm not surprised that you got out for a run despite the cold. I love the look of your sprout dish, I had something similar to that during the week, yum!

    1. I do love living by the sea especially on days like that, gotta love a good sprout dish x
