What to do next........

Is what I've been thinking over the weekend - I have gone from one challenge to a break to another challenge where all the work has been done for me - now it is time to think for myself and get to my target alone! I know I want to incorporate kettlebells into my training but dont know whether to stick to bodyweight stuff, go back to heavy weights or both - hmmm maybe a combination of all of it!

Diet wise I am going to continue to try to eat as cleanly as possible, I will only eat bread when absolutely no other alternative, sugar will be kept to an absolute minimum maybe the odd square of green and blacks if i have a craving! No alcohol but I will have my 1 cup of tea daily and greek yoghurt in the form of dairy.

My all time favourite breakfast is going to continue to be the smoothie courtesy of Rylan which I have now adapted to make just right for me:

1 pot of Fage greek yogurt fat free
1 small banana
1/2 cup of raspberries
1/2 cup of oats
1 scoop of cookies and cream whey
1 tbsp flaxseed
1 tsp ground almonds

It is truly yummy and keeps me full for ages and is made from all sorts of good for you ingredients, as the yoghurt is so thick i tend to dilute it a bit with water.

I miss my friend for working out with we always had a great laugh working out together so I will have to drag her out to catch up on some kick arse workouts!

It is my daughters birthday tomorrow so we will be going out for dinner to a thai restuarant - my absolute fave so tomorrow wont be the best calorie wise but I will try to avoid having anymore sauce than what covers the chicken!


  1. I'm no good at working things out for myself, I much prefer to have it handed to me on a plate and I'm then happy to do the hard work needed.

    I did a kettlebells induction and went to a couple of classes some weeks ago. I loved loved loved it. Unfortunately, it's the other side of the town where I live and timewise it was very difficult, add to that cost of getting there and back...

    if you want to come to North Swindon and open a class, please do!

  2. Hey hun, it's great having everything worked out for you, I wish I had someone to do it for me! However, I found I learned so much more figuring it out for myself and I love writing up new plans for myself.

  3. Hey guys - Lol Swindon is a little far but I'd love to otherwise x why not get your own kettlebell and do some of the things you learnt??
    Jo - I think its cos I am always doing it for others i sometimes like to have it done for me but it is about time i stopped relying on others and maybe trusted my own judgement!!

  4. love the smoothy recipe. Have you tried Tom V's oatmeal pancake? It looks great too.

    I can empathise with the struggle to find a way on your own. You have all the knowledge and experience you need to do it. I'm sure you'll do brilliantly. Good luck and keep posting.

  5. No i havent N x where is the recipe? in one of his books? Yes I can do my own just being lazy lol xx
