JOIN ME "DANI DETOX DECEMBER CHALLENGE"

Fit Yummy Mummy WEEK 4 transformation challenge continues....

YAY!!! I can't believe we're nearly half way through the FYM challenge!!! Time to crank it up to the next level as I have been a bit complacent. I still haven't managed to buy heavier weights, so this is my mission this week. My 4.5kgs dumbbells are like lifting feathers (well, not really but you know what I mean). Just need to build my strength a bit more and looking at buying either heavier dumbbells, a 10kg plate or getting a kettle bell? Or maybe all of the above??? What weights do you prefer to use?

I'll keep you posted with my new purchase/s. My real hassle with all this equipment, is storage! I have no dedicated place to store these guys so that's why I have been a bit slack purchasing them!

Oh yes, forgot to mention I was featured on Fit Yummy Mummy's blog on Saturday if you'd like to check it out. I'm so glad that I can be a great ambassador of Clubfym and encourage those women who are wanting to regain their body back after having babies. 15 minutes per day is all it takes me to get the results I have got, so I do hope to see you there!!!!

Workouts I completed my Transformation Kit workout yesterday and even managed to do my 12km run on Saturday. Pretty huge effort I think for someone that has only been able to run a bath!!! I am completely stepping out of my comfort zone and trying to embrace something I am not so good at!

Here is the scenery and running track I was running beside and loving every minute of it!
How divine is this running track ~ Lake Wendouree, Ballarat

Breakfast

Bircher muesli with strawberries
 
 
Ingredients
Oats
pepita seeds
sunflower seeds
2 oranges (juices)
1 lemon (juice)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 chopped dried apricots
Method
Soak above ingredients overnight and add milk and fresh fruit and enjoy!
 
Morning snack Yogurt with fruit
 
Lunch Smoked salmon and egg salad
Ingredients 2 slices of smoked salmon 1 tomato 1 handful of spinach 3 hard boiled eggs drizzle of olive oil & vinegar
Afternoon snack
Coconut banana protein smoothie
 
Dinner Broccolini with BBQ chicken skewers

The dressing 3 crushed garlics 1 tsp seeded mustard 1 tablespoon white rice vinegar S&P 1 tablespoon of olive oil

Add all ingredients together (except olive oil) then add olive oil last to emulsify this delightful dressing!

 

This is the dressing I poured over the steamed broccolini which I prepare in 4 stages. I also toast pine nuts and generously sprinkle over the broccolini, we love the taste!

1. Wash broccolini thoroughly 2. Steam broccolini 3. Place in cold icy water (remains green and fresh looking) 4. Drain in colander with absorbent kitchen paper

With the chicken skewers I pretty much marinated them in lemon juice, seasoned with S&P, 2 crushed garlics and tarragon leaves. I also leave the bamboo skewers in the tub to soak up the lemon juice to avoid them burning!

 

Off to bed early tonight, had vertigo all day today, very dizzy and light headed. I think it's caused by my pinched nerve in my neck. Not cool. Will go to Chiropractor tomorrow to check it all out.

Look forward to touching base with you all again! Have a sensational week!!!
