Healthy protein breakfast after morning Pilates to keep energy up during the day

Healthy protein breakfast after morning Pilates to keep energy up during the day.

Omelette with spinach, mushrooms and cheese 
and hot water with lemon to start. 
Leaving 12 hours after the last meal the day before so the body has a chance to digest and if you like- giving it a chance to fast in that period

A cheese mushroom and spinach omelette .Yes you may have spotted Ketchup in the photo. 
Although Ketchup has sugar which I exclude from my own eating regime and recipe suggestions,  just sometimes a little taste of what you fancy is better than total denial so you dont crave.

Tuesday morning early HIIT boxing training session

Tuesday morning early HIIT boxing training session.

Love boxing for having to be mindful, be in the moment and focus.  Also brilliant for cardio, toning, upper body, arms, waist, glutes and legs
And also the brain for remembering the sequences. HIIT is the best way for helping increase your metabolism for most efficient  weightloss (of course together with how you moderate your eating).
You dont have to be young to start a new sporting activity. #nevertoolate. I'm 63.

My homemade beef bone broth for Sunday Night supper

My homemade beef bone broth for Sunday Night supper.

When I'm by the seaside I'm permanently hungry! It must be the sea air. 
So the next 2 days will have 16 hour breaks between the last broth at 6pm and breakfast the following day which willl be at 10am after an exercise class. So basically squeezing 2 proper protein and healthy complex carb meals into an 8 hour period.
The bone broth was cooked from grass fed beef short ribs which had been previously slow cooked with vegetables, onions and garlic as a dinner the day before.

Chargrilled organic lamb cutlets with a 'swoosh' of houmous (trying to be decorative and chef-y) with buttered cavolo nero, carrots and  broccoli flowerlets. Colourful, rainbow, dark green and purple vegetables are all full of vitamins and minerals. The more colour you add into your vegetable choices the healthier the benefits. 
Butter on the vegetables for good fats.

Loved Ice skating at the Isle of Wight rink before it closed down over a year ago

Loved Ice skating at the Isle of Wight rink before it closed down over a year ago. This is one of my efforts from then and before my weightloss journey too.
Lots of open air Christmas rinks open now.
Will post my recent effort at the Natiral History Museum later today.
Its great exercise for core stability and glutes. 
Also a sense of achievement the longer one stays upright!

Quick healthy scallops, chorizo and prawns recipe

Quick healthy scallops, chorizo and prawns recipe.

Pan fry scallops in a very hot pan with butter, olive oil or coconut oil. Sear or brown them very quickly so they don't become rubbery.
In a separate frying pan heat the chorizo and already cooked new potatoes until browned.
Lightly boil tenderstem broccoli and add the samphire at the last minute.
So quick and easy and yummy.
