I feel like during this absolutely hectic, stressful, exhausting, mind-consuming and mind throbbing few weeks of exams and school and crazy we just have lost contact. I feel like we're strangers! And thus a currently post is most definitely in order so we can catch up on current favourites and life of the moment!!
So yes, as mentioned above I have just gone through the fun-ness of two weeks of mid-yearly exams and yes, they did nearly kill me (don't know how I'm going to go through all that agin for mocks and then WACE- Western Australian Certificate of Education in case you were wondering). Which also means I have just entered into what could be considered a bit of a down period in terms of school work (no doubt back at school next week teachers will be assigning all of our last tests for the term!) and thus a bit of down time and relaxation for the brain. Always a nice thing.
But let's get into the specifics of this currently post in my life:
Majority of my workouts have left me feeling strong, powerful and I've ripped through them with energy, motivation and determination; something that could have ultimately be sapped from me from all the studying I was doing; so I am incredibly thankful my body knew it needed to move and got on with it!
I've definitely done a lot less running because cross country had my legs working so hard and the carnival was last Thursday, so I rested my legs in preparation for that and now I'm giving my body a slight rest in terms of running for a bit so I don't burn out and start hating the sport that's given me so much. Again.
Instead as that little baby bicep up there shows, I've been working a lot more on my strength training (both with weights and Blogilates toning videos) this has just made me feel so strong and amazing. Also VERY hungry!
In terms of food, I have gone into another one of my phases of obsessions. This has been going on for a while now. Home-made cookies for breakfast, when I used to have roasted potatoes every second day, that time when smoothie bowls were a regular occurrence atleast 3 times a week, oatmeal every day and now?
And of course my absolute favourite smoothie ever:
I think my other obsession, on the slight down-low as my smoothie obsession seems a little more persistent, is this guy:
Finally I have my lazy lunches and dinners to show you can still get in all those good nutrients with minimal time in the kitchen!
Roast potatoes (sweet and regular), steamed peas and fresh celery and cherry tomatoes sounds pretty good!
Celebrate with a microwave rice bowl with a rice and quinoa cup heated up with tomato, capsicum, celery, peas, corn, four beans, spinach and hummus until nice and hot and delicious!
Ok, I feel like this post is getting relatively lengthy (that's how long it's been since we've had a good catch up! So I hope you enjoyed this currently post, I do like writing them, gives myself a snapshot of what's going on in my life making some positives/ negatives more evident!
