Hello there and a very happy weekend to you, hope you’re having a wonderful one.
I’m working but it isn’t too bad so far. James has been away doing an experiment and is now recovering from his 2am starts – lots of sleep, video games and guitar playing here!
This week has been a busy one but a good one food and exercise-wise, I’ve felt pretty great and energised most of the time.
James’ absence gave me the opportunity to evaluate my evening routine and I’ve been trying to reduce the amount of screen time I get, especially close to bed time.
I turned the brightness of my screens right down and this made looking at my phone during the night (part of the job sadly) much less painful.
It wasn’t such a success when I tried to use my phone in bright sunlight the following morning though!
Oh so few pictures because I was on the road quite a bit (lots of Nakd bars) this week and James left me with a pack of chipolatas that needed eating.
Chipolatas for dinner for three nights in a row was a challenge, I kept it varied by alternating veggies and salad.
My best meal of the week happened on Monday, we went to Aqua and I adored every bite of their Tuna Nicoise salad.
It really is worth sampling their version, which features rare tuna steak, but if you want to make it yourself, Laureen has you covered.
Free range, organic, gluten-free chipolatas with sweet potato, red onion, salad and avocado
Vanilla coyo with raspberries
Wild salmon, salad, sweet potato and red onion
Sun: Run 10k with James
Mon: Walk Rufus
Tues: Sweaty Betty run club (hill training) with Laureen
Fri: Run 5.5 miles with Julie
Yay for a good workout week with some fabulous company! I even felt energised and stress-free enough to tackle two strength/interval workouts from Fitnessista.
They were hard, sweaty (check out my lovely red face in the above pic) and I’m still sore but felt great.
I was so chuffed to be able to walk our Borrow My Doggy friend Rufus twice this week, he was a little superstar and attracted many coos and compliments.
He definitely keeps me on my toes and by the end of our walks we are always exhausted but so happy too.
Yesterday morning started very bright and early with Julie. It was lovely to see dawn break around us and we were rewarded for our 6am rising with a gorgeous view.
I have a feeling this weekend will be very sedentary though!
* Do you manage your screen time?
* What’s your favourite salad add-in?
A boiled egg is always a favourite but olives are delicious too!
