First Friday Fave…and it’s the best one EVER!! No, not breakfast believe it or not, but it was the generous and AMAZING responses to yesterday’s post!
£119 in one day?! That is SO amazing of you all, and seriously your comments and donations made me cry with happiness! Thank you all SO much!! And if you haven’t entered already to win a Garmin Forerunner or a Vitamix, or if you just want to donate to help Christian Aid help to tackle world poverty, then please see this post for all the details.
2. Katie’s Never Ending Oatmeal Bowl! She posted the recipe yesterday, and the minute I saw it I ran down to my kitchen to make it for this morning! And it was PERFECT (P.S. The photo below I have stolen from Katie, because I was stumbling around at 6am trying to find my camera to no avail. My brain doesn’t switch on until after breakfast sadly! )
Anyway, it seriously WAS never-ending!! SO voluminous and SO delicious!! I enjoyed it topped with lots of crunchy peanut butter, and it was HEAVEN
No shame in dessert for breakfast, or dessert-breakfast for lunch!
4. Being THE most forgetful person in the world. I hope there’s an award for that cos I would SO win it. You may know my amazing track record for forgetting my gym stuff. There was that speedwork treadmill run that had to be done without socks (I still have the blister scars!)…
…the time I forgot my shorts and had to workout in what I was wearing (skinny jeans)…
…and only a few weeks ago when I forgot my top and had to workout in my sports bra which made me SLIGHTLY uncomfortable to say the least…
…but today topped it all. Because I not only forgot my shorts, but also my top. Well done Emma. So at first I panicked. There was no WAY I could work out in the smart black trousers I was wearing, and my gym isn’t close enough to my house for me to just pop back! So I did what all normal people would do in that situation. I ran out to the nearest store to buy the cheapest sweats I could find, and less than 5 minutes later…
And because I’m super classy and totally cheap, I left the tag on the sweats so I can return them. Yes, I do want my £5 back thanks.
Did 30 mins of HIITs on the bike today, followed by this, and I am seriously seeing results already, and I’m only two weeks in! It is SO challenging. Should I post progress pics or is that too comparision-y? Anyway, this book is amazing, and I love how the workouts are so balanced so that you work most of your muscles in every workout rather than just a few at a time, which is what I used to do. Someday I’ll look like the woman on the front of that book
Mashed banana, crunchy PB and honey on toast. Honestly, my new favourite thing in the world.
7. Single-serving Chocolate Peanut Butter Lava Cake!! Recipe and photo from here. It seriously blows my mind.
Another AMAZING way to use peanut flour!! This is my new fave dessert and I will be making it pretty much every day until I run out of peanut flour I bet!
8. Tomorrow’s TEMPO RUN!! Tempo runs are HARD, but they are my FAVOURITE type of run!! I’ve been calling my physio pretty much every day (I think she hates me now) to make fully sure I’m ok to do it, so I’ve taken it super-easy on the mileage this week in preparation, but I have had NO pain at all since I started running again!! Tomorrow, I’ll be back on the track, looking as cool as ever…
Now THAT is good form. I think the elites seriously need to study me, or at least learn from me how to pose properly for a camera when running.
What are YOUR Friday Faves? Or Saturday Faves if you’re reading this then!
Are you a forgetful person? I forget EVERYTHING. I am probably THE most disorganised+forgetful person alive.
And for runners, do you have a favourite ‘type’ of run? Tempos are too much fun! And progressive tempos are even better!
Have an AMAZING weekend friends!! Seriously love you all!! <3
