I’m so sorry I’ve been so quiet recently on my site! I am back!! I thought I would start with a what I eat in a day post as I have just joined Slimming World and I am loving every second of being on it!
So where do we begin? Let’s start with breakfast. As you may or may not know I work a job which requires me to be up at half five every morning and out of the door by half six so my go to breakfast are overnight oats!! They are high in fibre, free of fat and full of fruit (granted there are only blueberries in this pot but I had run out of raspberries and strawberries). If you are on Slimming World this would be one free food, one super free food and a healthy option B
After breakfast we move on to lunch and snacks. Yesterday I had two apples and an orange as snacks from breakfast to lunch and then from lunch to dinner. For lunch I had tomatoes with Tuna and sweetcorn (mixed with 1tbsp of mayonnaise) followed by a banana. I also chose to mix up my normal drink of water with a can of Diet Coke (it’s free). This filled me up until I was able to get home for dinner.
Dinner was absolutely delicious last night! I had made the Slimming World cottage pie over the weekend and cooked it last night to share with my mum. It was so filling and full of nutrients, I added more green beans and used some of my syns by adding gravy.
At about half past eight I have my final eat of the day and it is always a HIFI bar. This little taste sensation is the perfect way to end the day and the Salted Caramel flavour is by far my favourite!!
Overall yesterday I had around 10 syns and felt full up but comfortable. I am really learning to enjoy food for the right reasons!!
So that’s it for my first blog post. It’s good to be back and I promise there will be more to come!!

At the moment I feel like I am spending most of my life in either work outfits or workout clothing so I thought it was time I shared with you my top three workout outfits. I love working out and trying new classes and I love having a suitable but also quite a stylish outfit to wear to the classes I go to for example I don’t want to wear the same clothes that I would wear to a combat class, to go to a yoga class.
I absolutely adore these West Coast leggings from Alo Yoga they are available in three colours but ironically I would wear these to a Yoga class. The have a stirrup bottom so that they don’t ride up your leg but they still look acceptable enough to go bare foot at a yoga class if you so wish.
To go with these leggings I like a brightly coloured top such as this vixen fitted muscle tank in the colour atlas. This is also available from Alo Yoga and has beautiful detail with a sheer but not to revealing cut out.
To finish this look I would add: the Alo Yoga atlas glow bra which can be worn on its own with the leggings; these Nike Presto fly trainers in white and the sunset jack from Alo Yoga. This outfit is such a light and summery outfit and I think it is perfect for a yoga class whatever the weather.
My second outfit is what I am most likely to wear out running because I like aeration and not to feel like my clothes are clinging to me when I run. The main part of this outfit are obviously the running shoes and I like the Nike energy boost three shoes in all black.
I am in love with this Sapopa novita stretch-jersey leggings because they are mostly black but have the yellow and blue which do also provide reflection for darker evening runs.
The Under Armour show stopper spacer t-shirt is a perfect complement for this outfit and also doesn’t restrict your outfit to being all black. It is in a midnight navy colour and is light and aerated which is what you want when out on a run. To finish this outfit off I would have a high support sports bra such as this Ivy Park racerback stretch-jersey sports bra in black and this Lucas Hugh core stretch-jersey running jacket.
The third and final outfit is perfect for a high intensity class such as a spin session or combat class! the bulk of this outfit is Sweaty Betty but I find it very difficult most of the time to wear workout clothes from different brands. These contour crop workout leggings are jazzy but sophisticated and I love the pattern of them.
To go with my jazzy leggings I of course also have to have a jazzy sports crop which is a medium supprt bra as well and has a racerback for serious comfort and this oversized sweat which I adore for all obvious reasons in it one being oversized and two being black! I would finish this look with the New balance WX811 trainers in black.
So these are my top three outfits. Obviously there are so many more that I love and want to buy/own already but that’s the way it has to be! What do you like to workout in? let me know in the comments.
