Tomorrow it’s all about the Orange. We all know that Oranges are bursting with Vitamin C, are a good source of Fibre, B vitamins, vitamin A, Calcium and potassium (Source: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/28497905/)

1 Orange

Half of a Banana

250ml skimmed milk

2tbsp Fat Free Yogurt

2 Ice Cubes

Method:

Peel the orange and break into segments. Peel and roughly chop half of a banana. Place the fruit, milk, yogurt and ice cubes into a mixer bowl. Blitz until smooth.

Give it a go! Here at Mums In Real Life, we’re always looking for new tips so please share yours 👍🏻

Brunch Anyone? *Must Try* Avocado & Egg With Tomato

Recently, we were invited to our lovely friends house for a work out in her garden gym followed by brunch. What lucky ladies we are!

We started off with a warm up run, followed by circuits of planks, burpees, skipping and squats. Some kettle bells were thrown in for good measure too. Oh! And a power hoop.

We definitely earned the brunch, we were really put through our paces but managed to laugh through all the sweat! Here’s what we did:

60 seconds of each exercise, 10 secs rest. Do each exercise 4 x times. Let’s do this!!

Round One: Squats/Leg Raises/Slam Balls

Round Two: Skipping (it’s tough!!)/Lateral Raises/Shoulder Press (with weight)/Power Hoop (if not, go for side plank – 30 secs on each side)

Round Three: Mountain Climbers/Sit Ups/ Burpees/Jump Squats

So, let’s get on to the food. Our gorgeous host made a feast for us!

We salute you, eggs baked on Avocados! Bacon lardons, how we love you sprinkled on roasted Tomatoes! Chives, you are a show stopper! Yes, at this point we were all STARVING!

Why not team up with friends to work out? You can motivate each other, push each other to work harder and reach your fitness goals together. Life’s always better with friends! We’ve been busy with our friends at Keeling Fitness and LA Personal Fitness working on an exciting collaboration which will be on its way soon – watch this space…

Thank You!

Here at Mums In Real Life, we are so inspired by others. Thank You for all of your support so far 👍🏻

It’s Bootcamp day (again!)

So, Tuesday rolls round again which can mean only one thing – Bootcamp! Today we mixed it up (actually, Craig forgot the gloves and pads) so we had a bonus circuits session instead. It was really challenging, great fun, and involved quite a lot of running so we burned more calories than usual too.

Today we did 1-10-1 which sounds simple, but is a really challenging workout. If you’re starting out, just work from 1-10 or set yourself a time limit e.g 20 mins and see how far you can get. Most of us managed to get from 1-10 an back to 8 – setting the benchmark for next time!

In other news – am running the 20 miler tomorrow with my running buddy. I’m absolutely bricking it (as my nephew might say) but have treated myself to a beautiful new water belt so I can rehydrate along the way.

I’ll keep you posted on progress tomorrow – wish me luck!

PS: Thanks to those of you who’ve been following the plans with us! As promised, Craig is writing a custom plan for beginners so keep your eyes peeled, it will be ready soon!

Tuesday is Bootcamp Day!

Ok, so I’m going to level with you here. Tuesday morning is Bootcamp day. Ordinarily. Today, I wasn’t feeling it. Legs achy, gale-force wind and rain – so I opted for fruit tea instead. (FYI I was sprung by Craig in Costa afterwards – Bootcamp Karma)

So I’ve sucked it up tonight and I’ve done a home workout based on Craig’s famous tonne up sheets. This is a good one as you can do it once, or if you’re feeling really hardcore you can work your way back up again when you get to the end. Who’s with me?

PS: Thanks to Craig at keeling fitness.com for letting me share. Watch this space for more!!
