Slowly slowly

In the last week – despite starting to feel physically improved – I have been seriously struggling to find my motivation, except for when it comes to sitting about doing nothing at all. The usual get up and go attitude has been more along the lines of get up slowly, go unwillingly then finish early and have a little rest.

Being Insanely Healthy

The blog has been very quiet recently, mostly because I have been doing very little (except sleeping, which I have done in plentiful amounts), and certainly nothing blogworthy. I originally intended to spend all this injured downtime making incredible foodstuff and filling the blog with nutritious and wonderful recipes but there does come a time when you have so little to do, that doing anything at all becomes a real effort.

Green Pepper and Tomato Soup

If we are honest, whenever people purchase a bag of mixed peppers, they only really want the red, orange and yellow ones. The green peppers just aren't as sweet and tasty, so they sit about in the fridge until you either happen to make a curry that they can be thrown in to or they are wrinkly enough to be thrown out.

The Mildly Perilous Emsworth Epic

I am finally starting to come to terms with the fact that rest and relaxation is the only answer if I want to speed up the back healing process. As you all know, R+R is not something that comes easy for me and I have been trying to think up ingenious ways of doing little bits of exercise without hurting myself such as making far too many cups of tea to increase the amount of time spent lifting the kettle.

With relaxation in mind though, I headed off to Emsworth for a calm couple of days by the sea where I would not be in the danger proximity zone of the gym or be tempted to do anything too active. A land where the greatest danger would be the village patisserie.
