Body. Is. Sore. Fancy giving me a massage?

Cue.. cute cat picture.



But just think we’re halfway there. It’s Wednesday afternoon which means there’s only 2 days before the weekend. Rejoice!

Before I get into my day, have you entered the super sweet Giveaway? Anyone can enter and you can have more than one entry! So get going people.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about my recent posts on eat responsibly and how eating a cupcake is healthy too. And even though I knew it, writing it and putting it into perspective like that has done wonders to concrete it a little more into my brain [and hopefully put it into action]. Its helped me with some choices of late I’ve had to make.. and yes, I’ll most probably expand on this a little later.

Anyways, my Wednesday started wayyyy too early. 5:30am to be exact for a 6:00am Body Step class. Lucky the members make it so worth it. Plus Body Step is super fun, no matter what time of the day it is.

Then a miracle happened because I managed to come home, shower and get back into my pjs for an extra 45 minutes of blissful, half-awake sleep. But boy when that alarm went off I was considering skipping my weight workout (yes I know, naughty me for doing two consecutive days of weight sessions- my body is paying for it now) but then I remembered the sexy guy I saw in the weight room yesterday, and the fact that I had Body Balance after and hopped out of bed. Ha.

I rewarded myself with a special edition to my breakfast- semi dried tomatoes. Ahhh this seriously made the scramble. [Speaking of tomatoes, I’m determined to make my own homemade cooked salsa- but don’t know how to can, gimme tips/recipes/how-to-can?!].

A full breakfast complete with water and vitamins.

Oh and check out my awesome pan.

We’ve always bought Circulon frypans since they’re non-stick, even though we’ve had plenty of issues with them- all our fault though.

First of all we were never told not to use olive oil and last time we purchased one we were put in our place. From then on we only used rice bran oil with it (mum is determined to always use oil- I’m the complete opposite). Then most recently we found out that you aren’t suppose to use high heat with the Circulon pans because it burns the bottom and defies its’ non-stick abilities.

So now we know and hopefully this one will last a little longer. I must admit it was absolute bliss flipping my egg this morning.

Then it was off to do a weight workout- the usual with the adjustments thanks to Tara @ Sweat Like a Pig!<– This girl knows her stuff. Followed by a much needed Body Balance class. Then it was home to foam roll, shower, prepare food for work and head to work.

I’m in a pretty lousy mood at the moment to be honest. My body is aching, it’s hot, I have to work till 10pm tonight and work has clients coming back which I’m less than thrilled about. I know, first world problems. Oh well, we all have these moments and hopefully mine buggers off soon.

I’m off to pep myself up with some blog reading, that always does the trick!

  • What ‘peps’ you up when you’re in a funk?
  • What little adjustment have you made to a meal lately that makes ALL the difference?

Daily Healthy Thought: Just because I feel down does not mean I’m putting myself in a bad situation.

Happy Sunday! Can you believe 2013 is almost upon us? It’s crazy how fast this year has gone.

This morning I did a Grit Strength class- the most recent release, and I just so happened to forget how friggin hard it was. Then a Body Attack class followed. I was a bit sore since  I’ve been a bit slack the past 2 days with foam rolling, thanks to the holidays and all that. So I came home and immediately got my roll on.

Around this joint Sundays are usually the only days we do pancakes and today I was really feeling one. I didn’t just want pancakes for breakfast so I compromised by having a piece of wholegrain toast topped with vegemite and a soft boiled egg. Saaa good. Then on the side I had one Oatcake.

The Oatcake was an eggless version of my Greek Yogurt Pancakes, and since it wasn’t overly fluffy or pancake-like I wouldn’t classify it as a pancake- therefore I introduce to you, The Oatcake.

I blended together, in my Vitamix, 1/4 cup of oats, enough 0% plain Chobani, 1/4 tsp of baking powder and some water to get everything moving about. Then I cooked it as you would a pancake and topped it with 1/2 banana sliced and a sprinkle of Natvia.

It was that good that I actually didn’t remember to grab a photo till I was half way through it. Oh and don’t judge, oatcakes are the ugly ducklings of pancakes. But it’s the taste what’s inside that counts right?


Today we will duck to the shops to do a mini grocery shop, meet up with some friends again to go to the Quarry, watch some more Jersey Shore, foam roll again, do some pre-new years eve cleaning, and just enjoy the beautiful sunny Sunday we’ve been given!

Do you judge food based on its’ appearance or are you a proud ‘ugly food’ eater?
