Physio update & Shirataki noodles

Hello,

Guess who got cleared yesterday for any reasonable exercise?

ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am beyond overjoyed, my physiotherapist said I don’t need to see him anymore unless my back pain returns 🙂 I can start including more plyometrics as long as I stay sensible and not overdo it, which is fair enough.

I didn’t think I would get the all clear so soon so was very surprised yesterday. I celebrated the news by starting level 2 of 30 day shred. Oh boy, did it kick my ass or what? I am redescovering my exercise DVDs as they all feel ”new” to me given how much more difficult and challenging they feel now. Definitely getting my money’s worth from them ha:)

This year I am trying to grow some veg and we got onto planting the seeds last night. We are planning to move it into the garden when things start sprouting. I am hoping to have:

Parsley

Dill

Thyme

Cauliflower

Broccoli

Mixed Salad

Aubergine

Beetroot

Cherry tomatoes

Here’s how it’s looking now:

Please note the ever so cute watering can in the shape of pink elephant (that was only 99p so a bargain in my book)

To break my habit of always eating omelettes and scrambled eggs I made another batch of Kristi’s egg muffins this time with Polish sausage and aspargus served with extra aspargus

I am seriously loving aspargus at the moment so picking up 2 bunches from tesco for 17p each was a godsend

I also finally got round to trying shirataki noodles:

Mr A served them with homemade tomato and onion sauce over chicken pieces and it was surprisingly filling considering those noodles are basically water and fibre lol

I should be ok with not needing to prep lunches for a couple of days as we also did a big batch of turky, veg and lentils stew last night.
