Haha yes 😜am I the only one who spends hours looking at food blogs trying to decide between cashew cream zoodles and paleo-cauliflower-whatever only to end up eating beans out of a can with a spoon? 😂🥄it's like my brain just can't deal with thinking about food anymore! I did add sriracha to my can of beans though 😏
Here's a snapshot of my LISS from the weekend: hiking up to Prague Castle! It may not look steep, but trust me - between all those buildings & house are cobbled streets at a 40 degree angle 😅 legs were destroyed, but the view was so worth it 😍 anyone else done this walk up to the castle in Prague? ☝🏼️
Good morning you lovely lot! So I am currently in bed with a cold 😷 and as I'm having as little chemicals and nasties inside me as possible, I am getting by with things like lemon and ginger! When I used to binge eat, I would get a cold every 2 months or so. Since recovering from the binge eating and focusing on health, I hardly get ill - the last time was end of 2015! Started the day with some brekkie - still loving these @hollandandbarrett buckwheat puffs with @lucybeecoconut maca, @adunaworld baobab, @pulsinandbeond why protein, @alpro Almond milk, @totalsweetxylitol and cinnamon, topped with @tescofood satsumas, @grapetreefoods coconut flakes, @sevenhillswholefoods goji berries and bee pollen and @wholeearthfoods hi-oleic peanut butter #fuelgood#shbreakfastclub Hope you all have a good day!
Before I even begin: hands up if you remember either of the first two vids?! 🙋🏻 I remember posting them way back in my first-ever round of #bbg, in Sept 2015 😅 If you saw them then, I just want to say thank you x 100 for staying w me on this journey. We have grown tog, and your encouragement has meant so much! ❤️ Okay, back to biz. Ystdy someone asked me abt push-ups, and it was perfect timing cuz I was planning to do a new #pepushupprogress post! The urge came aft I watched my workout vid fr ystdy, and marvelled at how far I've come w these!! 💪🏻 I'm not sure how many of you know this, but it wasn't so long ago that I was told by both a chiropractor and a physiotherapist that I needed to strengthen my upper body muscles-- not for some aesthetic reason, but as a health imperative; my neck/back/shoulder muscles were simply not strong enough to maintain good posture, and I was perpetually in pain 😞 This was before I even started on #bbg 👯 So I worked from the bottom up-- from trying (and failing) to do push-ups against a wall, against a bench, on my knees... To eventually doing my first unmodified push-up (top right vid). From there, I've sought to get stronger and stronger, working in different push-up variations, and trying to up my rep count 💪🏻 All this is to say that I GET how difficult push-ups are for us women. When I first tried to do them, I was convinced women just weren't built to do these. But then I saw @kayla_itsines absolutely CRUSHING them on her page, and I was like, damn. It CAN be done. And I've never looked back since. I really think we shldn't accept that "women's push-ups" are a thing-- like a freaking exercise should be gendered! 🙄 If you haven't already, see #pepushupprogress to see my struggle w these. My older posts go into detail about HOW I gained more strength, so perhaps those specific tips might be useful 👍🏻 Above all, this is why I truly believe in FUNCTIONAL fitness-- regimes that improve your
