Can you believe it is Thursday already! I think when you take a trip mid week or have to travel it definitely makes the week go faster.
Thought it was time for another Thinking out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda over @runningwithspoons for some random blogger thoughts!
Ok so I began my last thinking out loud post commenting about breakfast but after this mornings breakfast I felt like I needed to do it again. While visiting my Mum yesterday she gave me some fresh free range eggs from a local farm so this morning I had them scrambled, with sautéed kale and a spoon of almond butter. Oh. My. Goodness. It was so delicious!
Sometimes I find just keeping things simple often make the most fantastic breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Oh and if you have never tried this combination, I would highly recommend it. Even simply kale and almond butter – who knew!
2) The choppy pixie
As I mentioned, I went up north yesterday to get my haircut. My hairdresser from back home in Inverurie, where I grew up, is absolutely amazing. She is so up to date with trends but also knows what suits people and I completely trust her. A good hairdresser is so hard to find!
I have had short hair now since the end of December and love it! But yesterday I decided to have it the shortest since getting it done; I went for a pixie cut! And I love the results!
Not only does it look great but I love the fact that washing my hair now takes next to no time, as does blow drying it. Styling it involves some wax and just going crazy with my hands through my hair – simple! I think short haired people have been keeping this wonder a secret for too long!
I will be so sad when citrus season is over. I mean can you imagine Christmas without Clementine’s and tangerines and then comes orange season. They are so juicy and full of flavour at the moment and £1 for 6 at my local supermarket is incredible – and did I mention they taste amazing?! So lets embrace the season while we can and eat them all up!
4) CrossFit Open
Tomorrow is the last WOD of the CrossFit Open! Although I wont miss the craziness of the WOD’s and the constant predictions, thoughts, hacks, re-do’s etc I will miss the community aspect of it. I love the fact that so many of us, all over the world, were taking part in this together – sharing the experiences (and often pain!) of the WOD’s and coming together to celebrate how wonderful CrossFit is! But we can all support athletes who will go on to regionals and then we have the games themselves in the summer! I will also miss judging – I loved doing the course and taking part in another aspect of CrossFit. Good times!
I guess this is the perfect topic to spur on from CrossFit! Both David and I know how restricted we are now with CrossFit until we get these knots out of our backs/ shoulders/ neck/ hips etc. We both do mobility at home and this has definitely helped but in order to really get at those knots we will need to go for some sports massages. When I was at Blythswood Square a few weeks back with my Mum I had a deep tissue massage – I could feel all my tension. The masseuse even said she barely scratched the surface I am rock solid! Eeek! So I think a couple of massages a month may have to happen – sound good? – Nope, sports massages are like torture, that you pay for!
6) Happy Mother’s Day!
And to end this thinking out loud post, I would like to wish my Mum a Happy Mother’s Day for Sunday! (Don’t panic, it’s Mothers Day in the UK and Ireland – not until May for those in the States and Canada!). I gave my Mum her card and present yesterday but want to send her lots of love via my blog and let her know how wonderful and special she is!
