I didn't have these for dinner but I so should have.
Instead I made this weird concoction of a packet of Brazilian flavour instant grains (wheatberry, quinoa and mung bean) with a little bit of mixed veg added that I then decided to blitz down into a mash.
It sounded good in my head 🤷‍♀️and also easy for Sonny to scoop up on his fork that he's so keen to use. Needless to say it ended up a funny tasting brown sludge, although not that dissimilar to refried beans so pretty edible. I mean I've sold them so well that if you really want you can see them in my story 👀
It's ok, I'm quite comfortable with the fact that sometimes my creations are spot on and others, mmm not so good. I'm sure everyone remembers their mum serving up some random shit from time to time... well I'm now that mum.
Anyway, these pancakes that we had the other day would've been a much better choice. 🥞
Pancakes: (roughly) 1 tablespoon oats, 1 tablespoon coconut flour, 1 teaspoon maca powder, 1 egg, 1 egg white, teaspoon baking powder, coconut milk and blueberries fried in coconut oil. Topped with @pipandnut coconut almond butter, pomegranate seeds and strawberries 🍓🍓🍓

But, if you want serious #abs go check out @kaliburns and @pro_vfitness_nutrition these girls are in my top ab goals list right now. 👆👆
Got a quick #workout in this morning, just 20 min on the treadmill and then some cable that I'll put in my stories, before Sonny woke up round 2.
It was mission impossible to get him back to sleep after a 5am wake up but I got there in the end and a small but significant workout was achieved. Mums - you know, you've got to act hard and fast before they wake up again!!
I have a couple of hours off this morning as granny is in to babysit and wtf am I doing... sitting in a car park on my phone 🤦‍♀️ Plan was to get my nails done but couldn't find anywhere last minute (should've booked somewhere!!) but hey ho. At least I can get a post done without trying to cook, hold a baby, remove a sharp object from his grip all at the same time. Although still not promising there won't be any typos 🙈
Just enough time left to grab a coffee so I'm off. Have a lovely day ☺️

Same bikini, a lot less boobage 👻
Pic on the left from a year ago, four months after having Sonny.
I think progress has been slow but steady. I have more muscle now thanks to ⬆️weight training and #HIIT which retains a little more muscle than long periods of LISS cardio.
No supplements other than occasional protein powder in a smoothie or pancake etc, multi vitamin and probiotics. My pre workout is a strong coffee or caffeine drink.
Eat mostly clean, protein with every meal.
And that's pretty much it.
Went swimming with the boy this morning and then collected the donations for our food bank which I help out with tonight. Pics in my stories, heart warming to see the generosity of people ❤️
Ok gotta go because Sonny is yelling at me. Have a great day!

#meatfreemonday looked like this.
Whole grain rice noodles with baby corn, sugar snaps, red onion and corn fresh off the cob (buy a while corn on the cob and slide a sharp knife down and cut off the kernels yourself, WAY tastier than canned/frozen) sautéed in soy sauce and chilli garlic salt. Then add edamame beans and pomegranate seeds.
We also had @goshfreefrom quinoa and sweet corn bites and a green salad.
I'm not gonna lie, Sonny wasn't into the noodles even though they had everything he usually eats in 🤷‍♀️but hello toddler life...eat something in the morning, hates it by lunchtime!
We thought they were good though and hopefully so will you. I really like these noodles from @morrisons that you just soak - meaning you have one less pan to wash #happymum

Hey morning everyone. So lucky for me the baby went back to sleep after a 5am wake up and I got my workout done. 30 minutes on the treadmill, fast steel incline walk followed by this barbell circuit.
▶️Thrusters
Not as polished as I'd like. Working on my front squat form and getting my hips lower (a flexibility issue as I have tight hips)
▶️Deadlift➡️Bent over roe
I like to keep going to get the HR up as well as working on strength
▶️Roll outs: I only go as far as my lower back comfortably allows, if I feel any arching I pull back, the movement should come from your core and obvs your upper body.
Husband is still sick, friends are sick, my parents are sick... thankfully I feel ok and Sonny still ok. Weighed myself today which I only do sporadically, but looks like I've lost a kilo after 3 days of illness. A lot of it will be water, my abs are definitely popping more.
Will probably do something active today with Sonny and get some healthy meals in. Have a great Monday x

#pyjamas were on at 5pm again tonight, rest day two is done. Feeling better but still like the smell of food cooking makes me really hungry or 🤢I can't decide. The subway for lunch was pretty good though, the roast chicken and cauli rice for tea was not. Bad food decision there picking up some pre packed cauliflower rice, it honestly tasted like horse manure ☠️
The fruit, Cheerios and Greek yogurt after saved the day though 😋
Took Sonny to the circus for the first time today. He loved all the lights and music but was a bit restless towards the end as it lasted a couple of hours. Great day out though, good value as I thought it would be less than an hour long.
Hopefully get a #workout tomorrow morning, we'll see what little mr decides. His current status is tired AF but doing everything in his power to stay awake 🙄
He's the cheekiest little moo on earth when he's like this. Literally the witching hour 👻
Hope you had a lovely weekend ☺️

**Please insert your own motivational quote here** I'm on a rest day. 🚷
🚷
I feel I should add that I'm not actually as curvaceous as this picture implies but it's a great angle 🍑👍
Pyjamas at 5pm for us tonight, rest day has been a dream. Busy doing nothing much trying to kick this virus.
Still no appetite so hello #cutting 😹
(I'm joking btw) making up for lost calories will be fun when we're all better. Hello mr buffet, it's been a while...😋🍗🍖🥙🥗
Anyway what have you been up to this weekend? Give me some #fomo 🤔
Happy weekend ☀️

Hey definitely a rest day for me today, turns out I was ill yesterday so nothing to do with taking vits 🙄. Gradually felt worse and worse with cold shivers and feeling horribly nauseous. I was lying on the couch praying for my husband to finish work so he could watch Sonny and I could go to bed. 🤢
An early night did the trick though and I feel much better today. I rarely get ill but if I do it doesn't last for more than a day or two, I'm sure it's another benefit of being fit and healthy.
Poor husband is suffering now though so looks like it's a day out for just me and the boy. I've not eaten much over the last couple of days as whatever virus this is has knocked me off my food so feeling like a skinny mini I thought I'd stick a skirt on 😜No workout today or tomorrow, going to take two consecutive rest days until I recover and I was in agony with DOMS after my kettlebell workout the other day anyway.
Have a lovely Saturday 😘

Hooray it's Friday and the sun is back ☀️
Did a workout today even though I'm aching after kettlebells yesterday. Mainly cardio -45 min on the treadmill and stretching after. Actually feeling a little sick today but it only kicked in after my workout. Just a question to you all - do your vitamins make you feel sick?? I only ever noticed after I was pregnant. I couldn't take them on an empty stomach. I know I should take them with meals but I always forget and take them later.. I took my multi vitamin and probiotics right before bed last night 🤔
Anyway I don't do illness unless I'm really really ill so away to take the wee man to the park. Enjoy your day everyone 💪#flexfriday

▫️Savoury pancakes ▫️
These were so easy and tasty, perfect for using up left over meat and makes an excellent protein based, low carb meal.
◽️Pancakes: 1 egg, 1 egg white, 1 heaped tablespoon coconut flour, a little almond milk. You could just use egg and milk like an omelette but the coconut flour gives a great flavour and also enables you to make it nice and thin like a crepe.
Once cooked on both sides let it sit under a tea towel for a couple of minutes which makes it soft and easy to roll. I filled ours with left over turkey bolognese but you could use anything. Served on a bed of salad leaves, sauerkraut, avocado 🥑beetroot dressing and hummus 🥗 🥞
Kiddo friendly too as Sonny gobbled this down, which is good news for us as 80% of his food still ends up on the floor 🙄

Hey morning everyone. Had just long enough to do this full body Kettlebell workout before Sonny woke up, followed by a cheeky 20 minutes on the treadmill after he decided to snooze for longer 👍
Love kettlebells cause they're just so easy to grab and get straight in with. Go as heavy as you can which gets your HR up quick so you're burning calories and working on your strength. I'm mostly using a 12kg here and an 8kg for the cross body ones.
Bit of life admin this morning, cleaning and the dentist then out with the boy somewhere this afternoon. We might hit the library and a play barn, canigeta whoop woop 🙈
Enjoy your day peeps. 😘

New hair, new brows.
Sometimes a gals got to do some maintenance 💋
Absolutely love my balayage hair with long layers curtesy of Paul @purdeyhairdresser, definitely check them out on Facebook.
Aaaalso... bit the bullet and got my brows micro bladed the other day. Eek, it's quite a procedure 👀 I wasn't exactly prepared.
Really happy with the result but they're a teeny bit darker than I'm used to so still getting used to them. They've also got some healing to do, so I can't wait to see how they turn out. Love how they frame your face and somehow make you look tidier. My brows are naturally a bit patchy and disheveled but Absolute Beauty did a fantastic job.
I'm no expert at being groomed... in fact as much as I love gel nails i'm terrible at getting them removed properly so my nails end up a right mess. Currently sporting some funky *tips* on my toes 👣...which are actually my last colour grown out!! No chips though thanks to the expertise of @kazukonailsandbeauty 😘thanks for helping me get away with not having them done for a few months 🙈
What grooming do you do and do you keep it up?! 💋
