Still on track!
Sorry I’ve been MIA for a little while. I’ve been unwell and then super busy with work but I’m still on track! One thing I have been doing is 50 jumping jacks and 50 squats every morning bedore my shower. I think this a great tip for those who are just getting started with weight loss because it takes no time at all and is easy to build into your morning routine. I think some people get put off with starting a weight loss journey because they feel like it will be too hard to do and to keep up but these little tips are so easy!

I missed my group gym session last week because of work which made this week a killer. Never missing a week at the gym again!

Herb and garlic crumbed fish and vegetables for dinner. I added parmesan to the vegetables because I read today that it is the cheese with the highest amount of calcium. 40grams of Parmesan provides a female with half her recommended calcium intake for the day.
Oat cakes for a healthy snack!
I made these from a recipe in James Duigan’s ‘Clean & Lean Cookbook’ with a few additions of my own.
100grams rolled oats
200 low fat cottage cheese
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
(I added 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed and some strawberries)
Put all the ingredients, except strawberries into a blender and blend until smooth. When cooking them in a pan I used coconut oil and poured them into egg rings so they were the perfect snack size. Added the strawberries while they were cooking and flipped after 2-3 minutes. Once cooled I put 2 into zip lock bags for a quick grab and go snack!
Let me know if you try these and what you think of them. Enjoy!
