Hi Ladies! How are you doing? For those of you here in the UK – how blummin miserable is this weather! Sigh….clocks gone back, dark nights…lovely.
Sooo…did you have a good weekend? As always, it was over in the blink of an eye and here we find ourselves plodding through Monday once again. Usually, Mondays are the start of the onslaught of the working week, however, now they just signify the start of the five day rundown til Phil is off again. I think husbands should be allowed more time off when they have a newborn….
Anyway, like I mentioned last time, I’m gradually starting to feel inspired in the kitchen again. I’m enjoying re-visiting foods that I loved prior to my journey into Bumpsville….yeah pregnancy had me wanting cheese sarnies and apple juice all the time! Speaking of bumpsville……
Yeah that was me in the hospital preparing for the emergence of this little fella….
Who’d have guessed he’d be so cute Anyway…..this week I’ve enjoyed lots of “old” things…….like pumpkin…..
Eggs have also been making an appearance (I need to change the name of my blog again as I am planning to keep eggs in my diet from now on) I’ve been reading about their health benefit s and they’re a nutritional powerhouse don’t ya know?
Phil makes the best omelettes Hmmmm….is that how you spell omelette?
All hail SOCCA!!! I blummin love socca!!! Cooked in a pan with coconut oil – this adds to the flavour and is waaaay better than olive oil in this instance. I promptly chopped the socca in half and made a tofu-salad-socca-sarnie and it was delicious! I sense a socca phase coming!
I’ve also been getting my daily dose of this……
Mmmmmmm!!! He’s just too yummy!!
Leo and kitchen crusades aside, I’m still gradually recovering from my C Section – it has been REALLY tough to be so inactive for the last 10 weeks. I know I have a newborn baby and have had “major abdominal surgery” (sick of hearing that!) but it has reached the stage where I really want to feel like myself again and thus get back into the exercise groove. I’m considering buying a spin bike so that I can work out when Leo takes his morning nap. That way I’ll not miss out on any precious time with him
I got quite annoyed with one of the midwives who said that I shouldn’t be exercising now I have a baby….oh yeah, I’ll just morph into someone else!!! Anyway…whatever…I have plenty of new fitness goals but more on those next time
love to you all!
