A Great Day

So I’ve kind of bored myself by talking about Whole 30 so much… Therefore, in my bid to stop overthinking and to make things a liiittle more interesting, instead of doing a WIAW today I thought I’d recap yesterday. Because yesterday was a great day and a little bit of positivity wouldn’t go a miss around here. 

Before I begin, however, I just wanted to say a huge thank you to those of you who left such lovely and reassuring comments on Monday’s post. It really meant a lot. Another reason why I love this community – being so easily understood by people who just seem to know what’s up!

Anyhow, yesterday. Why was it great?

Firstly, it kicked off with a CrossFit session (shocker, I know). But this was better than any old CrossFit session as it was full of my favourite things:

– Warm up run + 20 burpees (okay, so burpees aren’t exactly my favourite…)

– 5 rounds: 20 mountain climbers, 10 sumo deadlift kettlebell high pulls

– Deadlift technique

– WOD: 50-40-30-20-10 of deadlifts (40kg) and air squats. This was AWESOME. 

– Run (same loop as warm up) and foam rolling. Then I did a little work on my ankle flexibility because it sucks.

Great thing of the day number two. After my shower I put on a dress that I haven’t worn in a while… When I looked in the mirror I actually went ‘woah’, it was way looser. Now, this dress used to be a bit of a ‘booby’ (!) dress but now it is far more…appropriate! It was definitely a happy/sad moment. Sad as I always find change a little upsetting but happy because I know my body must be getting healthier. 

Thirdly, it was Day 15 – a.k.a. halfway – of Whole 30. And that is all I shall say on the matter.

Fourthly, I got to meet the lovely Claire of Flake & Cake for lunch in Wholefoods! If you don’t yet know Claire, head over and check out her blog – it’s awesome. She writes about her love for running, her journey through various dietary changes in response to her allergies (an eye opening read) and her adorable hamster Meeko, amongst other adventures! We chatted about all things paleo, food, allergies, blogging, running, CrossFit, friends, work and life! She was even more wonderful than I had hoped 🙂 Like I said earlier, it is just so incredible and inspirational to be able to connect with people who think about their health in a similar manner to how you do. Plus, it’s always good to not be the only one taking a photo of your lunch…

Happy BloggersHappy bloggers!

Wholefoods salad bar obviously added to the greatness… Well, I say salad bar, they had put all the bits we wanted behind a counter so we managed to confuse the poor lady behind with our multiple selections all in the same box 😉

Wholefoods SaladSalmon, butternut squash and ratatouille – deliciousness

As did this haul of goodies… Though I must say I think I was pretty restrained!

Wholefoods HaulCoconut yoghurt, plaintain, coconut flour, Primal Kitchen bars and a new face cream as recommended by Claire (I may have recently run out and I may have been using suncream instead…)

And great thing number five? Curling up on the sofa with coconut yoghurt and watching Footloose (the newer one).

This totally is how I dance…

All in all, truly a great day. Breathing happy.

What’s one great think from your week? Have you met up with any other bloggers?

  1. What a lovely day, so nice that you got to meet Claire too. 🙂
    Yesterday I had a lovely run through the fields- it was sunny but really windy so it really blew away any cobwebs.
    I have met a few bloggers- I am always very nervous about it beforehand, but it has always been really great, although slightly strange as we already “know” each other.

  2. I’ve finally turned on the computer so am able to comment on this – I read it on my phone but it wouldn’t let me comment (you’ve seen my dubious technology talents!)
    That Crossfit session sounds awesome, gutted I didn’t pick your brains about it on Tuesday. Foam rolling is something I definitely need to do more of, great that it was incorporated in your session.
    Thank you for saying such lovely things, I think I’ve blushed all three times I read this! It was so lovely to meet you and chat about all the great things we have in common, I had such a fantastic time with you 🙂
    Hope you liked the Primal Kitchen bars and the face cream, I’m obsessed with both (may have bought my sister some for her birthday haha!) xx
