I’ve been a bit unwell this week with the flu, so apologies for my lack of posts recently! I thought I’d do a quick update of what’s been happening in my life this week…
FITNESS: The past 2 weeks I’ve been getting on it fitness wise. I’ve got about 5 months until I go on holiday so I thought it was about time to start slimming down and feeling better about myself.
I’ve been at the gym quite a lot on my days off and for a session after work. I’ve got my own wee routine which I’ve been loving as well! I think that’s what you really need in order to keep yourself motivated.
I’ve usually been doing about 45 mins on the Cross Trainer, followed by some weight training, then either a walk/jog on the treadmill or bike to cool down.
FOOD: I’ve really been trying my best this week to be as healthy as possible, and this means trying to cut down on chocolate and sweets (all the best things!).
I tried mashed avocado on toast with scrambled egg for the first time ever! I hate to say it but it didn’t really live up to the hype 😦 maybe I did something wrong! Does anyone have any good recipes for avocado I could try?
I’ve also been using the Nutribullet a lot more this week. I’ve either been whizzing up a smoothie in the mornings before work or taking my time and having a smoothie bowl! To make this one I put some almond milk, frozen raspberries and mango into the blender and then pop it into a bowl and top it with some banana. You need to make sure it’s quite a thick consistency though. It tastes amazing! 🙂
MUSIC: I love using Spotify. I think it’s great value for money and I love having access to all my favourite and the latest music! The three songs I’ve been loving this month are:
Lush Life- Zara Larsson| Wild Things- Alessia Cara| Cake By The Ocean- DNCE
WORK: As I mentioned previously, I’ve been working lots this week. Which means, lots and lots of driving… Don’t get me wrong, I love my wee car! But hours on the road can get a little bit boring!
FRIENDS: Since graduating and joining the real world this year, I’ve been finding it difficult to keep up with friends. A lot of them are still at Uni and are busy with their dissertations. Although Whats App and that are brilliant for chatting, when it comes to actually seeing them it’s a bit more difficult to organise. So I absolutely love it when I get a day or night with them!
It was one of my old flat mates birthday’s this week so we all met up to celebrate in Edinburgh with dinner and (one too many) drinks! ❤
