Oh golly, it’s been a while hasn’t it!?
I have been a bit quiet lately but been constantly thinking how much I really want to get back into the blogging swing of things. Having a busy toddler and trying to sit down at my laptop and blog are just not two things that go together, aaaggghh! Honestly every time I try and leave Rose (now almost 16 months) to blog for just five minutes, she is clambering all over my lap and trying to ‘help’.
So I’ve decided to, when I can, keep this little blog of mine updated. At the moment she’s sleeping so while I have a few moments to spare I’ll tell you what’s going on in Chez Treasure.
Well, our quest for a healthy life continues. Although we are not strictly Paleo all the time I do try and follow the Paleo philosophy at evening meal times. As neither Mr T or myself want a load of carbs right before we go to bed. So that’s working well. Other news on the health front is I have got myself a new blender/juicer called a Nutribullet. Actually I think the technical term for it is ‘extracting’ rather than jucing or blending as absolutely nothing you put in gets wasted or needs straining. It pulverises things like carrots, apples, ginger, nuts..the list goes on, into a very palatable smoothie or juice depending on what you put in. So I’m having a couple of juices a day and feel fantastic!
I’ve also been flat out in the gym doing regular spin classes, weights sessions and running on the treadmill. I have lost about a stone in the last couple of months, so things are looking up. At some point I will try and be brave and post some before and after pictures. I’ll also put together a little post on the juices and some recipes.
lewis and Holly are back at school after a lovely and restful summer holiday and are back in the full swing of working towards those GCSEs. Lewis is at a point where he is thinking carefully about his future career and what he wants to do and where he wants to study after his last 5 years at senior school wrap up next year. Holly is working hard and concentrating on her singing and music and thinking about what she could do for some work experience next summer, so it’s all quite busy with them at the moment.
Rose has grown from a crawling, gurgling baby into a walking and almost talking mischievous little toddler. She is so much fun, but very demanding of my time and attention. Which I don’t mind too much as I know it doesn’t last forever.
I’m going to tap up a quick post about things not to say to a new Mum next, as I was chatting to a friend recently and some of the things people say are bordering on the ridiculous! For now, I hope to be more present here and post with a bit more frequency.
