*Not meant to be cryptic, hubby & I have started up a new company, onwards and upwards :-)
I have been wondering round the garden and there are a few things sprouting up in our veggie garden, something I thought would never actually happen. I mean, you sew some seeds and then food will grow!!!! Really??!!
Butternut, carrots and corn in the background
Peas & Beans and spinach & broccoli to the right
We have been eating fresh salads from the garden and this morning I even picked a few dew covered kale leaves for my smoothie monster - DIVINE I have to say.
On the Food Front:
I am back to chopping out of my diet the following items based on the undeniable fact that they do not agree with my digestive system or my respiratory system, and that I am just basically a
nicer happier person without them!
The NO list includes, wheat, yeast, refined sugar and processed foods (as far as possible but I am flexible on this). For the immediate future I am sticking to sweet potatoes, butternut and wheat free pasta for "starchy carbs" and will slowly introduce others to include brown rice, baby potatoes, couscous and the like. Dairy is a touch-and-go subject for me because I'm sure milk does my sinuses no good so I'm sticking to Kara coconut milk & Rice Dreams milk for now. My cawffffeeeee of a morning will however still contain single (full fat) cream for the immediate future .... good lord I AM selective!!!!
On the Exercise Front:
We finally have all the pieces for the home gym in the garage and there is now no space what-so-ever for ANYTHING else!!!!! So Monday morning reared it's ugly head, as it does! The kids had an inset day so I HAD thought I might have a nice sleep in ...... oooooo nooooooooooooo hubby guilt tripped me the night before into getting up and working out, and I fell for it again this morning!!!! Boy am I feeling it!
I have finally gotten around to doing the "The New Rules of Lifting for Women: Lift Like a Man, Look Like a Goddess" routines, I think it must have been the LOOK LIKE A GODDESS part that caught my eye ;-) ...... EISH remind me next time it may hurt, in fact the book should come with a CAUTION sign on it heeheehee
No running as yet this week, I'll try pull that back into my schedule next week. I mean the Great South Run is only 19 weeks away, excluding this weekend that is and I feel like time is running out ..... it's a 10 mile race and my current slower than a snails pace and 2 odd miles is just not going to get me round so I DO need to focus here.
I feel like I am slowly getting my balance back in regards to all aspects of my life again, food, exercise, work, life ..... its hard and I can easily see how a few balls can get dropped every now and again. What I need to do is make sure that I juggle with bouncy balls!
I'm thinking that my blog name needs a change, yes "Eat Less Move More" is what got me fired up and going in the first instance but I feel this blog has evolved and is about more than just that now ...... over to guys, what do you think?
Before I sign off I'd like to welcome new blogger followers, its always great to have you aboard, don't be shy - all comments welcome :-)
