Friday roundup...

I have been struggling with muscle aches from my fitness classes but I am persevering. Yesterday's class was held out of doors. We did 30 minutes of quite easy cardio then took our yoga mats under the shady gum trees and did leg lifts and tummy cruches with hand weights included. Wow, I can feel all those muscles today! It was so lovely, lying on the ground looking up at the sky through the trees, with an Enya CD softly playing in the background. We all go at our own pace so I didn't do some of the arm/weight exercises so my shoulder doesn't get aggravated. That is the good thing about this class - we can go at our own pace without feeling like we are failing. Sheryl is a bouncy, very energetic coach and sometimes I just march on the spot if it gets too hard and fast. But that is okay.

Tomatoes on toast - a favourite breakfast of mine...

Turkey, cranberry and salad lavash bread wrap - delicious!
~
Fresh fruit and yoghurt...

On the mornings that I have exercise class, I come home and have scrambled eggs on soy/linseed toast. Good protein.

We had to go out for dinner on Wednesday night and I chose a healthy option. The King George Whiting was supposed to be battered and come with fries but I asked for it to be grilled and said no fries please! It was delicious with just the salad. I didn't even touch the tartare sauce.

My roses are just starting to pop...

The garden has filled in since I weeded all those weeks ago...

Bonnie likes to walk the balance beam...

We are off on a Ruby adventure for a few days to a pretty part of Victoria so I hope to get some nice pictures to share with you.

Enjoy your Friday wherever you may be. I am off to work then home to pack! I will need to take some healthy snacks/food with us. We will be having barbecue and salad Saturday night and Sunday we will make salad rolls so that shouldn't be too bad.

Cheers - Joolz
