It’s Thursday, it’s time to write = Thinking Out Loud style!
Linking up with the beautiful blog birthday (yesterday) gal Amanda over @RunningwithSpoons for all the crazies!
1) It’s a coffee kinda day
I normally limit myself to one cup of coffee a day, in the morning and that’s it. I completely believe that caffeine takes 6-8 hours to pass through your system so try to avoid it after 12 noon. Today however, I arrived in Stabucks and my body screamed AMERICANO PLEASE! So I relented… killer WOD this morning, absolutely shattered!
2) M3 Update
As I mentioned last week I have decided to start taking a magnesium supplement by Pure Pharma to try and help me achieve a deep sleep/ promote muscle recovery. Week one update – Getting to sleep great, deep sleep for the first few hours and then I start to dream again. However I am feeling more energised in the morning- win! In terms of muscle recovery, that has been awesome. Done some crazy workouts which would have resulted in major DOMS previously – now I have some aches but nothing to write home about.
Still only a week – and a week of my ‘time of the month’ (so British that I can’t say Period!) in which I always tended to have disrupted sleep/ more dreams anyway, so week two may be more representative.
Another update! The flies, touch wood, are pretty much gone from the kitchen! Yay! Went with Amandas advice of ACV and washing up liquid and being patient. You were right Amanda, being patient was the key! So pleased!
4) Phat Ball reaction
Loved the reaction to my fat ball recipe I posted yesterday! I didn’t know what the reaction would be – would most shy away with me calling them fat balls and the majority of folk still thinking that low fat diets work (!??!!!??!) or would folk embrace their nourishment. Seems like fat, or ‘Phat’ is king! Yay! Missed the post? Check it our HERE.
5) 7 Reasons you need a nap (or at least some downtime)
Read this great post by MindBodyGreen today about the benefits of a nap/ downtime and why we need it. I should probably read this over and over – do I always practice what I preach when it comes to this? heck no. Do I pick up my phone/ipod/ ipad when I should leave it be? yep. Do I try to keep going when I should shut my eyes for 10-15 minutes and rest? oh yeah! But I am trying to get better and reading articles like this proves to my head exactly why I should!

6) Schedule/ New Project
So this is the first week of my new blogging schedule – was it odd not blogging on Tuesday? oh yeah and will it be odd tomorrow? probably. But I am also looking forward to all my health coach training/ schooling!
I am also working on a project for the next month with my CrossFit box! All will be revealed next week but will keep you all posted and connected to it – want you guys to see what I am up to!
(Oh holy guacamole….)
My husband David wants to raise money for male health awareness this year by taking part in Movember… that’s where males for 1 month grow a moustache…!
Love the fact that he wants to support the cause, but cant help but cringe every time I think ‘moustache’! My dad rocks one, David I’m not too sure. Even asked him if it could be a beard, the answer was no!
(You do realise David now I have blogged it you have to do it!)
8) And last but not least… Off to the Expo!
Sunday is the day David and I are off to the Scottish Fitness and Nutrition Expo! Cant wait! Should be really good – there are some stands/ suppliers I am looking forward to meeting. Expect a recap…!
And there we have it! Back on Monday – seems so far away! But always present on Twitter @ChasetheRG – you following me yet?
Do you allow yourself to disconnect or nap?
What do you think of moustaches?
How many cups of coffee do you have a day?
