•Roasted Butternut, lentil and brown rice salad• I have so little left in the fridge but managed to pull this together for lunch today. AMAZINGLY simple and delicious. Shopping arrives tomorrow 🙌 My go slow day has helped me recharge my battery. I’m planning another one tomorrow. I’m no good if I’m on zero. My motivation is very rarely a problem, but listening to my body is! So, going to try VERY hard to listen to my body a bit more, rest and finally shake whatever has had me for the last week.. 👑 I’m investing in rest .. #queen #foodforthought #eatwell #quinoaslad #buddhabowl #fitness #fitnessmotivation #eattherainbow #eat #eatforhealth #glutenfree #glutenfreemeals #glutenfreeideas #foodie #mealplanner #toastedsquash #autumn #salad #warmsalad #nutrition #kale #VEGAN #veganrecipes #veganfood #veganuk

•Vegan GF cookies? Well hello there beautiful• Actually I say that to most foods, especially chips 🍟 Did a 30 minute full body today instead of legs as I have a strained quad and bruised toe (oh hell I’m falling to bits! I have a sneaking suspicion I’m pushing my body too hard too quickly 🙄) Refined sugar free, vegan and gluten free... and totally delicious. From my @thehappypear latest cook book. Substitutions made: buckwheat for white flour; vegan choc chips ...

•A morning baking for an afternoon of eating• This is a sort of date and peanut butter cake! Not quite a brownie but look 👀 at it!! So delicious. It’s not too sweet and is a great snack for next week. I’m going to make a pouring chocolate sauce to eat with it! 😋 It’s #glutenfree #dairyfree #refinedsugarfree and easy to make. I got this book when it first came out a few years ago and still dip into it for recipes. I love the style and simplicity of it. .. #brownies #glutenfreeliving #glutenfreerecipes #dairyfreelife #vegan #veganrecipes #snacks #dates #gf #gfsnack #veganlife #veganinspiration #gfbrownies

•My favourite GF lunch• Roasted chickpeas in cumin seeds and bit of oil; fresh coriander and parsley; feta (omit for #vegan); tomatoes and chicory. I had this with roasted #kale mixed with #nutritionalyeast and some #quinoa Anyone else using nutritional yeast? What do you use it with? I’m a newbie using it... 🌱💛 .. #glutenfree #glutenfreerecipes #glutenfreefood #glutenfreelife #vegan #veganfood #veganrecipes #foodforthought #eatrealfood #eattherainbow #foodforfitness #fitnessfuel #fitnesslife #quinoarecipes #eat #foodlove #lovefood #foodie #fittie

•Donkey kicks? Yes please• I realised I may have got cocky thinking there wasn’t a part of me that wasn’t aching. @alexia_clark you proved me WRONG! 😂 Well I think NOW I can safely say I’m an aching mess! My arse is toast. On the positive side, it’s taken away from the focus on the DOMS I had yesterday and the achey shoulders this morning! Loved this lower body though, I genuinely had lots of fun doing it! Roll on challenge tomorrow 💗 Favourite moves today Queens? 👑 #fitfam #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #fitspo #fitmom #fitover40 #fitbod #mombod #postpartumbody #twinmum #strongnotskinny #100strong #queenteam #homeworkout #bandworkout #abs #doms

In a blender chuck in •1/2 large or 1 small frozen banana •a small nespresso coffee •a scoop of chocolate protein powder (I use @vegateam_uk ) •1/2 tbs chia seeds •1/2tbs peanut butter 1 cup almond milk DELICIOUS @chellespindler This is definitely your kinda thing! .. #vegan #veganprotein #vega #veganproteinpowder #mumswholift #queenteam #fitness #fitnesslife #protein #proteinshake #proteinshakerecipe #fitover40 #strongnotskinny

Goodbye arms.💀 You can join my legs. 💀 I had some DOMS in my legs yesterday but today THEYRE WORSE! I’m like a hobbling old lady! 😂 (How can it be leg day tomorrow? 😬🔥) Hello #shouldercapcrew 💪 though Thanks for the #armpump @alexia_clark Those pushups in circuit one- 🔥 @fortyfit.ammnyy I know you were in your element but I was dying by the end. I did all but the last 5 on my toes. 🙌🙌 New #pb 🙌🙌 Loved the rest and managed all 5 circuits today. The machine (me) I talked about on Monday is having a battery issue. 😂 Will need to scale things back a bit tomorrow. Mind willing, body not compliant! 🙄 Now, on to WORLD MENTAL HEALTH DAY ..... I am no stranger to mental health issues. I have spoken about it a bit on here and there is still such a massive stigma attached to depression and anxiety (my babies!) and such a lack of understanding. What I’d like to say is that you are not alone. So many people look like they have their sh*t together but so often we are are just trying to get through the day... So, to those having a tough time, I’d say, “Be kind to yourself”. To others I’d say simply, “be kind, you don’t know the struggles other people are dealing with” 💛💛 .. #alexiaclark #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #cfsrecovery #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnessjourney #fitnesslife #fitover40 #armpump #armworkout #workingoutathome #loveyourbody #strongmum #strongnotskinny #queenteam

•Celebrate your body• 👊 🎉 What I DIDN’T see... •strong shoulders •strength to hold a side plank •my firm(er) arse •my upper back muscles •working out at home •a body that grew and birthed 3 children (including a set of twins) •a mother •a wife •a daughter •a woman doing her best •CFS recovery •the dedication to show up •a body that has overcome so much •mental health that has overcome even more ————— What DID I see? ❌ •The bulge hanging over my crops. BUT I immediately stopped 🚫myself going down that negative rabbit hole •I made a conscious effort to reframe my thoughts, reframe the image of myself •Talk myself up •Appreciate and celebrate my body ————- It’s a work in progress but it’s why I’m tentatively putting this picture up instead of hiding it away ————— I am more than one picture. I am more ————— .. #fitness #fitnessgirl #fitnessmotivation #fitover40 #strongnotskinny #fit #fitnessjourney #strongmom #mother #backmuscle #wings

•LOVED THESE• Some days I feel like a machine. And today was one of those days! 😂 Super Sweaty 5 circuit blast this morning. Wasn’t too keen on the ladder set (I’m not a ladder set girl, sorry!) but I did like these oblique mountain climbers. I’m forever an inch worm and burpee girl 💕💕 (better not say the B word, I know @alexia_clark will make me regret it! 😂) How did the #queenteam do today?

•Recipe in saved stories• This @ottolenghi salad is sooooo good. I make it when I’m already in the house doing other stuff because it’s quite time consuming to make - the peppers are slow roasted, then cooled then peeled, and the aubergine is grilled (aka easily burnt), plus theres roasted garlic (obviously! 😂)which makes my hands smell very very garlicky!! All of which is a bit of a faff BUT WORTH IT! I PROMISE 🙏 ..

•And today we stretch• 🧘‍♀️ .. .. It is absolutely chucking it down here today so I did LOTS of stretching and foam rolling , along with a 45 minute yoga session. And boy did I need it! No filming or photos (mainly because I did it in the kitchen which is a bomb site of dishes, toys and crap everywhere) so I just switched off my phone and STREEEEETCHED out my aching body. ... Hope you’re all having an amazing weekend. .. #yoga #yoganewbie #stretch #foamroll #exercisemotivation #exerciseroutine #fitnessjourney #loveyourself #loveyourbody #fitfam #fit #fitover40 #queenteam #fitmom

End of BBG ➡️ AC only workouts. @alexia_clark .. Oh I find posts like these scary. I feel so exposed! 🙈😂 .. In the spirit of being honest I should say that I was not overly blown away by the progress between these two photos. HOWEVER, my workouts have not been consistent since July due to injury, vacation and then my month long virus. 🤢. What this photo doesn’t show is that despite all of the above, I AM stronger, there IS more definition and strength all over my body which the camera has not caught and I LOVE working out with my #queenteam gals. You are THE BEST 💕. Surely that in itself means I’m winning? ❤️ .. #queenteam #100strong #fitfam #fitness #fitnessmotivation #fitnesslife #fitnessjourney #fitnesstransformation #transformation #strongnotskinny #mum #mumbod #postpartumbody #workout #homeworkouts #fitmom #fitover40 #loveyourbody #mumtum
