How are we doing gang? All good I do hope.
Firstly a few updates, my good ole Dad is slowly improving and recovering from his complicated femur break, he’s a bit more mobile but still on crutches and thankfully less grumpy too! He’s been to see the consultant who says he’s not in the clear yet but he’s healing well; so the big family trip to Venice to celebrate my parents Golden Wedding Anniversary is still very possible. On that note a big thank you for all your top tips in Venice added to the comments on my last blog, much appreciated, if there’s any others then fire them at me; the more the merrier.
If we fast forwards a couple of months it’s the summer! I don’t know about you but I need pull my finger out and get my butt in gear to shed those winter pounds. I’d also like to take steps to get my skin, hair and nails in peak condition before then too.
So I’m going to crack on with healthy eating, activity and exercise some control over my gluttonous feeding habits, lots to be said for portion control. In addition to all the usual moves I’m going to re introduce my summer smoothie into the mix, easily made in the old Ninja.
It consists of Kale, spinach, avocado, blueberries, broccoli topped up with coconut water or almond milk. Then add in the nutritious booster mix for the extra vitamins and minerals, plus it’s delicious. Also I’m going to start taking some supplements to help me along the way, Imedeen for my skin. I’m a huge advocate of approaching skincare from the outside and inside, it makes the difference.
