Weekend Diet & Workout Ideas – Five Friday Favourites


It’s nearly the weekend whoaoaoah…

You need to sing that bit!

What do you folks have on the agenda?

We have a birthday party
(but when don’t you have a weekend birthday party when your kids are at school, does this last for the next 15 years???)

But then we are off to see friends on their beautiful sailing boat and I’m told the weather is going to stay as beautiful as it has been these last few days, so yipppppeeeee!

To round it off we’re heading to our beachfront hideaway for a Lazy Sunday.


Enjoy your weekends whatever they behold,  but before you get ready to chill let’s get back into our Friday Favourites
It’s been a while….

Friday Funny

Let’s start the weekend with a bit of fun.
This clip isn’t new but just in case you missed it last year, I thought it might make you giggle a little.

James Corden welcomes Alanis Morissette to perform some updated lyrics to her 1995 hit “Ironic.”

Super Healthy Muesli Bar

I like to call Sundays, Meal Prep Sunday and I’m telling you, this Sunday you need to get these yummy Muesli bars ‘prepped’ ready for the week ahead…
They are a delicious alternative to breakfast, in fact the perfect breakfast on the run if, like me, you get up and go at the crack of dawn everyday
Pair with a yummy skinny latte (adds 67 kcals)
a strawberry shake made from 150ml skimmed milk & 1 handful strawberries (adds 70 kcals)
or a handful of blueberries topped with 1 tbsp fat free greek yoghurt (adds 55kcals)

Deeeeelicious 🙂

Exercise of the week – Lying Pullover

The lying pullover is a great exercise to tone the arms, shoulders, abs and diaphragm and whilst lying on the ball you get a little instability to help tone the abdominals and shift that mummy tummy.

It’s a great stability exercise for the both the lower and upper core.

Exhale as you pull over
