Crusoe has the early-morning-just-waking-up-stares. I am just enjoying the cuddle.
Two main motivations: My life, and his.
Success is a mood that you choose, with every step. - Charlie Winston
Raw garlic, organic olive oil, salt, & a plate of toasted sourdough. Weekly treat for Crusoe & I.
Visual Motivator - because I want to feel great in whatever clothes I choose to wear.
There is a very simple little top waiting for me to fit into it...
went for a walk!
Breakfast and a board game! Making Monday mornings now healthy AND fun!
Mantra for today
Just taught Crusoe how to use the new kettle. He brings his sick mama a mug of peppermint tea (win), a brilliant book (don't tell him I just finished it), and my glasses. My day is complete.
New cookbook ordered - cant wait.
Summer nights. Crusoe has brought me eucalyptus and lemon myrtle leaves to crush, and inhale, for my cold. Love this boy.
I think he's making me some 'medicine' #yikes
Taking some time-out. Half hour of bliss reading and a perfect cold-drip coffee.
My favourite monthly grocery visit down the line. Most excited because now I have all my ingredients for some brilliant vegan sweet potato pancakes for this weekend!
Reminder to self
Taught the kid's art class then everyone ate together (vegan thai green curry) - Health. Community. #love
Getting me some muscle.
Today I was so creative! Made raw, cane-sugar free fruit 'jams' for yummy waffles and pancakes! (From my frozen blackberries and mangoes left over from an abundant summer) 1.blackberries, currants and cinnamon 2. Mangoes, peaches, cinnamon and vanilla bean. A small amount of maple syrup in each. Keeps in fridge around 3 days or maybe doesn't make it to the fridge! Tomorrow I'm just going to have the blackberry one with my homemade granola and some coconut yoghurt.
While The puppy was taking me for a run, I found banana crates and a funky bin left out for hard rubbish collection (ie free for taking) perfect for the new art studio! Sweat and art obviously go together! #recycle
After a long run. Snooze Time!
Buckwheat soba, tofu and vegetables. Mindfully made, one pot simple Sunday night dinner for Crusoe and I. I cleaned and decluttered the kitchen today and that action made SO much difference to how I thought about and prepared this meal. (Probs would have made peanut butter sandwiches otherwise)
Crusoe's Hashtag Breakfast! (Well he thought it was funny) Herb-crusted tofu sticks, avocado on ciabatta, and a raw mango peach compote.
A friend visited today. So a quick and easy lunch was in order while we chatted and caught up with each other.
Tweaking the plan...
Mango spinach salad and lentil apricot salad. Nom!
Not far, but the alternative was staying in bed, so, yay!
"They look weird, Mama - all that purple and orange" "I DON'T CARE LOOK LOOK MY SHOES ARE ALL BAGGY NOW!" Losing weight rocks. Loose clothes rock.
Eating out healthy - Saturday night I introduced my friend to my favourite vegan restaurant. We shared 3 dishes - 'nachos' and green salad and finished off with a delicious raw caramel slice.
Scorcher in Melbourne today 40C /104F...so what does one do but invite everyone for parents vs kids volleyball in the pool!
