Village life in the Summer! 10 mini videos here on this post

Village life in the Summer! 
10 mini videos here on this post. Swipe left after each one.

The St Helens village horticultural show Isle of Wight.

So no success with any of my veg entries this year. I entered beef tomatoes, mini purple tomatoes, and golden tomatoes,  runner beans, purple French beans and rhubarb.

My only 5 apples produced from my apple tree each had a single nibble from a passing bird out of them before I could pick them!

However I did win 2 x second prizes for my pastel artwork of the dog and my watercolour beach view from the decking of a beach house.

My two 2nd place wins earned me 80p. 
I will be going on a spending spree tomorrow. 
As they now say it's all in the taking part-not the winning.

Those who have known me for years in my cool urban London lifestyle would never have imagined me growing fruit and vegs and entering them in the local village horticultural society's Summer show.

Do stuff outside your normal fast paced hectic and often stressful life. It's fun. .

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast

Healthy low carb and protein post workout breakfast.

Scrambled eggs with organic butter, wilted spinach, and smashed avocado on seeded multigrain  toast. A nutritious breakfast to keep you feeling fuller longer with less blood sugar highs and lows. 
12 hours since last meal and this 1st meal of the day to help digestion.
I start the day with warm lemon water and then a small swig of Kefir with a liquid multi-vitamin mixed in with it.  All fermented foods help to promote good gut health.

Morning PT HIIT workout

Morning PT HIIT workout. 
Monday morning training with a mix of boxing, agility and core exercises.

As you can see from the video clip I'm not the best in fast side to side movements due to past injury restrictions and an element of caution!
(hip resurface and torn glute med 3 years ago,  and injured knee ligaments this March) 
However at 63 I am grateful to be fit and able to do everything I want to do from pilates and dance classes to horse riding,and paddleboarding. .
