Maria M  Love my family/food/fitness/friends. Always work hard, play hard, live and let live.

Doing a little keto this week to give my "fat shredding" stage a little kick start...so no carbs apart from veggies since Monday. Had to test 2k row today, so that was interesting as felt a little sluggish this morning , and I did it fasted just to get it out of the way. Hit exactly ( to the split second ) the same time as June last year, so 7.55.3. I really don't like that distance , think I prefer 5k. But super pleased since I've only been back to crossfit a few months and not really rowed much at all. #progressnotperfection #2krow #fitafter40 #rowingwod #crossfit #crossfitgirls #keto #ketodiet #fatloss

Fizzy milk anyone? It's now been over 4 months of starting my mornings with this little drink....took some getting used to even if you have tried kefir before ( it's nothing like what you buy in shops). But I really feel the difference ( stopped and restarted to test this theory) and would deffo recommend this. Even if it tastes a bit yuck. #guthealth #kefir #chucklinggoat #chucklinggoatkefir #fitafter40 #healthmatters #goodbacteria #girlswholift #crossfitgirls

Plan was to loosen up my quads after still suffering from Karen (!!) on Monday. Not quite sure how that turned into a 5k row in a humid room but rather pleased with my effort. 21 mins after not rowing for months...30 secs slower than this time last year but my excuse is im a year older πŸ˜‚ πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻 #rowing #rowingwod #5k #progressnotperfection #crossfit #crossfitgirls #fitafter40 #crossfitbasingstoke

Let me see you stripped down to the bone...#depechemode #londonstadium #iphone6s #depechemodelondon

So I woke up this morning and I finally feel like its "time"! Time to get back on track - you know that moment when something clicks and you feel ready ? Since my hysterectomy in December and enforced time off from exercise, plus pressures of being super busy at work , and eating waaay too much bread ( I could live on sandwiches! ) I am not where I want to be. Almost a stone heavier than last year and feeling a lot less fit. Crossfit gym rejoined and back to eating decent from today ( I never start anything on a Monday or on the 1st of any month). No diets, no fads, just aiming at a sensible 1-2lbs a week weight loss and a 0.5-1% per week fat loss. This is is my favourite breakfast, I can eat this every day and never ever get bored - but from now it will be my weekend treat!
490 calories total - 40g fresh spinach, 53g slice of sourdough, 2 poached eggs, 2 bacon rashers, and 200g fried plum tomatoes - fried in 5g butter.
Tasty and filling - may adapt for weekdays and skip one of the bacon slices... or more likely swap to protein porridge - we shall see! Hopefully by July I shall be back to my normal self - wish me luck! * *

Another fun visit to the Dam. Love it's diversity - one minute you are checking out beautiful tulips and next minute walking past yoni art. And you always somehow end up in the cheese πŸ§€ museum. 🌷🌷🌷#travel #amsterdam #iphone6s #wanderlust

Snuggled on the sofa in PJ"s with hubs watching Designated Survivor & Vikings and munching on cheeky little smorgasboard of goodies ...perfect Saturday night. Oh how times have changed #gettingolder #whoevengoesclubbinganymore #saturdaynight

Christmas brekkie πŸŽ„πŸŽ„πŸŽ„ scrambled egg with chives, avocado πŸ₯‘, spinach , salmon and a thick slice of buttered sourdough . YUM. #christmasbreakfast #healthyeating #alittlebitnaughty #iphone6

First attempt at a 10k row....target was under 45mins so well pleased. Definitely not a fan of that distance though - 2nd half was a proper mental struggle... πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻 #rowing #rowingwod #10k #progressnotperfection #crossfit #crossfitgirls #beastmode #fitat40

Back in April when I joined @lean_body_performance sent Alex & Adam a similar pic from 2 years ago ( in my Insta feed) asking to get me back to the same condition as I was then ( since I was about 10-12lbs heavier). Took 3 months - was well worth feeling comfortable wearing a bikini again! A bit of accountability goes long way. @alexjamesritson @lbp_adamwillis #teamlbp #progressnotperfection #fitafter40 #girlswholift #crossfitgirls #holidays #protaras2016 #girlswithmuscle #beastmode
