Eating out of house and home

Hi all! Hubby and I are going to Barcelona for 5 days so I haven’t had a grocery delivery this week. Tell a lie, I had a massive delivery of cat food and treats šŸ™‚ but no real people food. I am attempting to eat just what’s in the fridge/freezer before we go and have […]

Work gets in the way of life!

Don’t you just hate it when you are in the middle of a perfectly good weekend, being productive, having a great time and then WHAM! It’s Monday morning the alarm is blaring away and you are left wondering how the weekend ended so quickly. I feel like every weekend I get busier and busier. Anyway […]

Healthy and not so healthy

In keeping with theĀ 80/20 rule of life I have one healthy recipe and one slightly less healthy recipe. I read a quote by Jillian Michaels where she said 80/20 is the best way to balance life. She stressed that eating clean as much as you can and cut out all preservatives and junk in the […]

Could summer be here?

It’s amazing what a little good weather does for the spirit and my willingness to run! Ha Forgive me father for I have sinned, it’s been xx days since I last ran. I totally blame my other half! He had an accident at his last mountain bike race and as a result, my exercise has […]

Awesome breakfast this morning!

Ok so it’s STILL raining and I am getting a bit fed up and only want to eat bacon for breakfast. So I thought I would try something a bit different and decided on green pancakes. After reading a post by Stuft Mama yesterday I decided to give it a try and boy were they […]

Sun? What’s that?

Well folks, it’s a record here in the south east of England, 2 straight days of sun! In June you say? How odd. I agree. So let’s make the most of said sun. Yesterday I was locked up all day in wordpress training (yes it is time to jazz up the blog). So I was […]
