This morning at about 7am I thought death was near ….. my glutes were letting me know where they were!!!!  After yesterdays secession the reverse lunges into high kicks were a challenge and then this morning they got another beating …. mmmmmmmm where IS that 20p so I can start bouncing it off my buns :-)

This morning after bootcamp I opted for a change in my porridge mixture, I was so sure deviating from chochamocha would end in the bin.  But I had already mixed up some crushed nuts, seeds and dried cranberries so they were ready to go.  30g Scotts original with 180mls Kara coconut milk in the microwave for 3min30seconds (probable 10 seconds too much as I had a minor spill - it was lacking the extra powder I think???!!!), then I plopped in a tsp of Manuka honey and 2tablespoons of my berry/seed/nut mix and it was YUM - I'll be having more of the same again tomorrow :-)

Honey, berry, nut & seed porridge = NOM-NOMs

16:17 and I have a house full of kiddies this afternoon, funny but its less stress than I think 'cos they entertain each other and don't actually need me, but I'd better start on dinner otherwise the troops may not remain so co-operative.
17:15 and they are all tucked round the table with a plate in front of them, all have carrots, 2 have burgers (after a manual mind change!), 2 have hot dogs and 3 have peas :-)
18:30 and the house is back to normal numbers. And here's the BIG thing for moi …... I did NOT eat any of the leftovers & there were plenty since my eldest changed from hotdog to hamburger once they were made ggggggrrrrrrrrrr but the poochies did lots of sitting and paw and had lots of treats :-)
19:00 kids bathing, bed time soon :-)
19:30 …... my dinner has been prepared for me and apparently it will be “THE best sweet & sour pork you have ever eaten”!.....bold statement me thinks …...

Sweet & Sour Pork
20:30 I'm stuffed & yes, yes it was the best sweet & sour pork I have ever had ...... most certainly better than last Friday's Chinese takeout effort :-) ..... hubby's friday night dish from here on out, he's cooked it to well :-)

Say something nice :-)
Love how my feet felt in my latest eBay delivery & my new jacket it's just soooo snuggly & my improving shape shows the jacket off very nicely :-)


... and before I loose sight of them here are my

  1. I love all your goals and agree that skipping seemed a lot easier when I was 6 than it does now! Full push-ups - phew that one would be a very tough one for me!

  2. oh I hate it when the porridge spills in the microwave! the bowl I use at work isn't quite big enough and I have to watch it like a hawk!


Thank you for your comments, I read & digest them all :-)
