Hi guys, I hope you have had a fab summer & made the most of this amazing weather, even now with October here we've still been so lucky with all the sunshine. I don't want to dampen spirits but with autumn/winter approaching this is when we start the beginning of our hibernation!! STOP! this year make a pact with yourself to get out and get some fresh air and exercise at least 4 times a week - a good power walk or a quick burst of 20 minutes intervals 20 squats, 20 lunges, 20 press ups & 20 burpees! It will make you feel better, warm you up and give you more energy. No excuses please! Similarly, start making very simple soups: vegetables (onion, garlic, celery, carrots) gently cooked, then add lentils, chicken, tomatoes, garlic and hey presto the easiest and quickest home made soup to glug down as its virtually calorie free and will fill you up.
