Love All Around
Hello lovelies How’s everyone’s Sunday?
My Sunday has been pretty swell I definitely can’t complain when it’s been jam packed with lovely things since the time I woke up
First off, I have to say that the weather here in London is unreal.
It’s nearing the end of October and we are having “BBQ on your deck” type of weather Now isn’t that just the best weather ever? I think so. I also think that I should buy a fresh fillet of salmon to BBQ this week on my deck seeing as how it is that type of weather and all
In other good news, I am sure my Mom will be happy to know my flowers are still alive and looking extremely beautiful
I knew it was going to be a beautiful day even in the early hours of the morning I was at the gym by 8:00; the weather was crisp, but the sun was out and there was not a cloud in the sky It was a perfect morning.
I think my workout may have even added to the perfectness of it all I don’t know where all of the love came from, but I love leg days now! I dreaded leg training in the past. Even this summer I did not look forward to it! But now, I actually look forward to my leg training on Sundays and Wednesdays! I am quite fond of my new love for leg training
It may have something to do with the results I have been noticing?
For my walking lunges today, I used a new method known as goblet walking lunges that I read about on Ben Bruno’s blog (you can also access the link and many more fitness related articles on my Learn page – I have been updating!).
The goblet walking lunges were so much easier for me since I find it difficult to get the barbell on and off my back multiple times. I definitely prefer this method and will be sticking to it (Make sure you try this out Christina!) Another great thing about the goblet walking lunges is the core work involved!
After my workout I obviously had to test out my new flavour of About Time protein, Cinnamon Swirl (Ok, so I actually “tested” it out last night, but I had it after my workout too!)
The review for this flavour is top notch, two thumbs up, and absolutely scrumptious I could definitely taste the cinnamon flavour and loved it Since I have so many cinnamon-loving readers, I highly suggest that you test this flavour out for yourselves You will love.
Like I said, my day was full of love, so I hope you all got the hint that there was some lovely food involved throughout my day as well
I have two new recipes for you all to try out Enjoy and let me know if you try one!
Pancakes are a great pre-workout meal right?
These ones are.
Fluffy Cottage Cheese Pancakes
adapted from Healthy Living’s Pumpkin Pancakes
1/2 cup egg whites
1/3 cup rolled oats
1 Tbsp cottage cheese
2 Tbsp pumpkin puree*
1 – 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
*The pumpkin taste is not detectible. If you wish, replace with any type of fruit puree or more cottage cheese.
Blend all ingredients together. cook in a non stick skillet over medium heat.
This recipe makes four very fluffy filling pancakes
The next recipe is for those who didn’t get enough avocado loving from my post a couple days ago
Please enjoy and relish in the creaminess of this meal I certainly did.
Massaged Kale Avocado Salad
I began with a bowl of beautiful kale (washed of course!)
Next, spend some time with your beautiful kale. Massage every leaf using 1/2 of an avocado.
Don’t slack on the massaging process No one likes a poorly done massage! Not even kale
Top with veg of your choice. I chose grape tomatoes and cucumbers!
If you wish, add some protein to the salad
Or add a lot like me
Maybe this recipe should have been for the shrimp lovers out there instead of avocado lovers?
Are you a shrimp lover? I think the picture explains it
Do you like getting massages? Love them
Do you like giving massages? For a short period of time… I get bored easily…
I hope you all had a lovely Sunday Enjoy the rest of your evening! I’ll see you tomorrow with another recipe that I am dying to share
Love and hugs,
