Sunday Fitness Fix #4

Sunday, 28 August 2016

After our trip to Krakow where I ate like a baby elephant, I've been on a bit of an exercise kick. I think I've made peace with the fact that I just cannot diet, it's physically impossible for me to look at cake and not eat it's entirety. So there's no point in even trying anymore. I will just gym more, EAT CAKE and be merry.

I've been getting some really encouraging responses from you guys on my 3 other Fitness Fix posts, so I'm hoping they're coming in handy to some of you and you might be trying out some of the workouts, even if it's just taking tit bits of exercise ideas. It's like having workout buddies across the internet!

We've just spent the loveliest weekend up visiting family in Stratford Upon Avon and I wanted to thank them for having us with some baked goodies! 

But alas, it all sort of went tits up...

A Wedding Weekend in Krakow

Wedding Krakow The Betty Stamp

What a weekend! 

Krakow is hands down one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited. What a gem of a place. The sun was beaming and the main square was constantly buzzing with locals and visitors sprawled out onto the pavements in cafes and restaurants, supping cocktails and wiping plates clean of Polish stew.

*Zero Baddies* Banana Granola

The Betty Stamp Banana Granola Refined Sugar Free

This granola is the absolute bee's knees.

Honestly and truly.

I've had a bit of a complex about making this granola since I nearly burnt my house down last year in an attempt to make it...(I had the oven on grill by accident...with the door shut, MASSIVE freak out was had). I'm lucky both myself and the oven are still alive to tell the tale. The baking tray however is not. RIP.

Anyway, I feel like a cat that's got the cream, I've definitely found my weekday breakfast item to surpass all other breakfast items and I'm SUPER excited to share it with you all so you can bask in healthy oat-y, banana-y glee as well.

ZERO refined sugars in this recipe only natural sugars, so you can plonk yourself down with a smug smile plastered to your chops whilst tucking into a bowl.

Vanilla Beer Brownies

The Betty Stamp Vanilla Beer Brownies Recipe

I have a confession. 

I've never baked brownies before that weren't from a packet.


I know. BUT yesterday was the magical day when I found out what I've been missing all these years. 

With a little bit of help from Joe at Little Pod providing me with an absolute treat of all treats - award winning vanilla beer and madagascan vanilla shortbread! Vanilla beer to use in the baking, vanilla shortbread to use in my mouth whilst baking...

These brownies were...(big statement blooming)...out of this FREAKING WORLD.

Northcote Road Summer Fete

Sunday, 10 July 2016

I LOVE a fete. I really don't think there's anything better than supping Pimms, tasting food from all over the globe, breathing in that smokey sausage and cooked onion smell and getting your face painted.

(maybe that last one applied more 15 years ago...maybe)

Saturday Fitness Fix #3

Saturday, 25 June 2016

The holiday is looming! The bikini is staring at me. The gym is a calling!

I've had a couple of chub chub weeks which has been slightly crap on the old love handles, but this week has been a turn around one, packed full of gym time and scrummy juices! Well...also one not quite so successful green juice involving chia seeds that tasted of the ground but we'll skip over that.

If you're wanting a few easy to follow gym workouts, then give some of these a try, my whole body has definitely reaped the rewards and I've been sleeping like a log!
