Carbonara is my favourite go-to ‘cheat meal’ – this is the only time I’ll call it a cheat meal. It’s not cheating if it fits your macros! It’s simple to make, but the sauce traditionally contains a lot of cheese. So I thought I’d share with you my favourite recipe minus (most) of the cheese. The great thing about this recipe is that it also contains a good amount of protein!
If you live in the UK as I do, you're probably enjoying the brief 5 days of June sunshine that will probably be the entirety of our summer. Let's face it, we're not very well prepared when it comes to the sunshine. We aren't used to seeing that big ball of brightness in the sky, so we just run outside the second we see it and stay outside until it goes down. Returning back to our homes at the end of the day resembling some form of overgrown beetroot, unable to move or sleep properly. But each year, it's the same. We never seem to learn the error of our ways. So I wanted to share with you some tips to follow when it comes to staying safe in the sun this (albeit brief) summer.
Sticking to a new fitness regime or diet isn't easy, especially when you first start out. Many people struggle and will often quit within the first couple of weeks. So here are a few tips I've put together that helped me (and still do!) keep up my regime, so that you aren't one of those quitters!
I love eggs. Honestly, whoever thought it'd be a good idea to eat these things a chicken produced all those years ago is a total genius. I eat eggs whenever and wherever I can, they're the main reason I can't/won't become a vegan. They're just too good!
Women are scrutinised daily for everything we do. How we walk, talk, dress, what we eat and what we look like. This has ultimately created a world where some of us are scared to make our next move. (For any of those ladies who have the confidence to do what and how they please, I seriously salute you)
Some don't like leg day and many actively avoid it. But legs and glutes are two of my favourite things to focus on at the gym. There is a common misconception that in order to get that dream butt, the more training the better. Don't train legs/glutes more than twice in a week. You'll slow down the building process, your muscles need time to recover and grow.
Macronutrients, also known as macro’s, are what make up the calorie content of food. They are made up of three categories: carbohydrates, protein and fats.
I am always thinking about food. Even as I type this, I’m thinking about the fish I’ve put in the oven for my tea, along with the cottage pie I’m cooking tomorrow. So I thought I would share with you one of my favourite post-workout snacks.
Although I now go to my local gym for workouts, I started my fitness regime back up by working out at home. Not everyone wants to go to the gym and some find it much easier and more comfortable to do it at home. So I thought I’d share a few tips with you that helped me out.
I almost didn't go to the gym yesterday. The sun was shining as I left work, I was going to a gig with friends at my local and my glutes were still aching from my workout on Wednesday. (First day back after a few weeks out is always a killer!) But as I got closer to home the sun went in and my gym bag was in the car giving me a dirty look for not putting it to good use, so I just went on in anyway.
