Hey you lovely people. Thanks so much for the lovely support and comments regarding my last post. It really meant a lot to me and I was smiling so much by the end. Thank you 🙂
Well, it’s Wednesday. Dare I even mention it for fear of jinxing things, but my hip feels a lot better and my knee is definitely getting there. Specifically this is what I’m doing:
OK, maybe not just nothing, but in terms of exercise I haven’t gone to the gym. I haven’t run. I haven’t even done that stupid tester run down the corridor when no one’s around – please tell me someone else does this? You know, you do a few running steps to ‘test’ things out. I haven’t even done that.
Instead I have been giving Alfie a longer walk in the morning…he’s loving this week, the furry little traitor 😉 and a longer walk in the evening.
Nothing major though. And working on my planks. FOUR AND A HALF MINUTES!!
Excuse me while I celebrate a little – a PB I can physically achieve right now. Hurrah.
Incidentally a man at work who cycles a lot happened to mentioned planks to me the other day. I loved that I could tell him I can do a 4.5min one. He got down on the floor there and then and attempted it himself. 1.5minutes. Not bad for half way through a day in the office!! And now we’ve launched an Office Plank Off for December as a competition. Amazing.
But yeah apart from doing planks, I’m also taking Ibuprofen and foam rolling. That is it. Come on Saturday – I’m going out of my mind with energy here!
But onto things a bit more exciting. FOOD. In line with WIAW, let’s cheer things up a bit round here!
I had the most INCREDIBLE slow cooker meal on Monday night:
Bacon, Squash and Goat’s Cheese Mess
All I did was chop up a load of veg (onions, courgettes/zucchini, mushrooms), a load of chopped squash and sliced up four slices of bacon (I got the ‘healthy living’ ones with the rind cut off as we’re not fans of the fatty bits so the slices are smaller) and cooked it in the slow cooker for 8 hours. Then I crumbled goat’s cheese on top and allowed it to get all melty and then promptly scoffed the lot. Oh my gawwdd it was good.
Still loving the slow cooker soup as well. The flavour last night was Pumpkin, Coconut Milk and Chickpeas.
Pretty much same as previous soups, just with pumpkin. A hug in a bowl.
Right, I will leave it there. Have a great Wednesday!
What meal has rocked your world lately?
Do you go to food for comfort when you’re sad? I wouldn’t say I do but it helps to have different things in your life to take your mind off things, like a good meal. But I can’t be more grateful to my family and Ben right now. They’re definitely my rocks!
What’s your favourite soup?
