I feel like I'm always saying "It's Friday again!" because the weeks just seem to fly by! We've had a seriously busy week this week once again and we'll be busy busy busy all weekend (babysitting, church and family things) and then all of next week as well. Tonight is our last night for our youth group for the term as the kids are off on school holidays so we'll get two weeks of free Fridays - yippeeeee!
But let me show you what we've been up to this week;
Recent Obsession: Corn on the cob and eggplant. My stomach just keeps getting better and I'm able to add more and more foods to my diet. Previously corn and eggplant were no-no's (as well as strawberries, grapes, snow peas, mango and coconut which I can now eat again!) but this past week I've been enjoying them with no issues! I am obsessed with baked corn on the cob <3 <3 <3 Up there is our veggie loaded dinner - baked corn on the cob with butter, mini cheesy potato bake, sauteed mushrooms and fresh veggie sticks.
Recent Cuteness: Miss Chanel Paige is always a source of cute in my life. Here she is post bath enjoying some time rubbish her face all over towels outside. It is seriously her favourite thing to do - she rolls around and has a big happy smile on her face the entire time.
Recent Love: A new recipe I've been working on! This is a Peanut Butter and Chocolate Swirl Bread that is low carb, grain free and high protein and so so so delicious! I'll be sharing the recipe next week so keep an eye out!
Recent Discovery: The MyCook! I went to the launch on Tuesday and now I seriously need one in my life. I'm not a fan of the Thermomix (I feel like it's over hyped and not very safe - especially with the steamer basket and plastic motor bits) but the MyCook (called the OzCook in Australia - but still the same machine Europe has been obsessed with for years) sparked my interest!
Recent Frustration: DOMS. Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. AKA: The current bane of my existence. You see, on Wednesday I did a super kickboxing workout and I felt great - until late last night when my arms and legs felt like lead. Today it's just my left calf that hurts (randomly - I guess I favour that leg?) but DOMS drives me nuts whenever I have it because I'll be fine on a rest day and hurting on a workout day. #FirstWorldProblems
We usually mix it up with 2-3 workout days and 1 rest day, depending on our schedules. I think rest days are super important - especially if you're doing high impact workouts. I used to skip them but now I know that it's more beneficial for us to have rest days. That said, I still walk for half an hour each morning because my day just doesn't go as well if I don't get out and get moving in the morning (because I'm usually sitting at my desk all day!) - and then we workout in the evenings when Jesse gets home from work.
Recent Happiness: Spring sunshine-y weather! I am loving my morning walks in the sunshine and getting to sit outside and eat my lunch in the warmth <3 Bring on summer!
Recent Joy that turned into Terror: This smoothie. It was increeeeeeeeeeeeedible - and then I came inside and spilt said movie all over the kitchen bench. Waaaaaaaaaah :(
Recent Must-Do: I've been loving the SIL Sister's in Christ Bible Study series and faithfully spending time in God's word each morning. I know a lot of my fellow sisters have been shy to comment but I'm still loving your emails and knowing you're reading right along with me!
But tell me, how has your week been?
What have you been loving this week?
