Yay to the sunshine!!
The weather today is glorious down here on the coast and I am keeping my fingers crossed that summer is here and there is lots more sun to come. This month has started with a bang and already been a busy few days. I am also in panic mode because as of yet I am still without a bridesmaid dress for my fiends wedding on the 20th of June, EEEEEEKKKK! I do have a dress here but it has a small pucker in the material and with no more left in my size I am not sure what to do....so I ordered another dress which will be here tomorrow and fingers crossed it fits and looks good because its a beautiful dress and my favourite so far, only time will tell!
Over the past week I have been busy in the kitchen making all sorts of wonderful tasting food which makes me happy, I love creating new meals and love eating them even more!
Smoothies in a bowl are back and here to stay through the warmer months, I love that they are so easy to throw together are filling and contain lots of healthy ingredients. The perfect pre or post workout meal and I quite often have one for lunch too.
I don't think I'll ever get bored of eggs and mushrooms for a quick and easy meal, this had some lacto free cheddar thrown into the mix which tasted awesome : )
I had a friend round for dinner last Sunday night and decided to try out a recipe from a new cook book I was sent to review I can confirm that this dinner was delicious and I will be sharing the recipe with you in my review post so keep your eyes peeled for that.
A little while ago I picked up some Genius gluten free pastry from Tesco and I have to say its great. Gluten free pastry is so hard to make so being able to buy it pre-made is very appealing to me, I decided to put it to the test and made a feta, broccoli and mushroom quiche which was glorious. The pastry is delicious and it was nice to have something different, I never make quiche or pies because I'm useless at the pastry but not any more thank you Genius!
Eating all this yummy food is great but its a good thing I exercise! Luckily I love to get moving and my workouts at the moment are really challenging but also lots of fun, I like nothing more then getting out and about in the sunshine to do workouts when the weather is like this and I have been taking full advantage.
Saturday morning I took a client and my TRX to a local park to get our sweat on. One of us worked on the TRX whilst the other ran circuits of the park and then we would switch. It was a great morning, great start to the day and I definitely felt like I had a good workout.
Early morning power walks are wonderful along Hastings seafront in the summer and they are a great low impact workout to compliment the higher impact stuff I like to do.
I'm also loving early morning runs along the seafront too which will be happening a lot more while the weather is good.
Other workouts have been a mix of strength and HIIT, I'm loving the weights right now and am feeling a lot stronger which is a good feeling.
Look out for my book review post coming up over the next few days, while I am out having fun at the weekend! I'm working tomorrow night then Saturday night I have my friends hen party and Sunday I am off to the Wildlife festival near Brighton which is gong to be awesome I'll be sure to tell you all about it. Have a great weekend peeps x x
What exercise are you loving at the moment?
