Did everyone enjoy valentines day?

Mine and Mike's day started off with us eating breakfast together, he came downstairs whilst I made it for a change...normally he hides upstairs 'til it's done! Then we gave the house a once over, cleaned the bathroom, guinea pig house and hoovered etc (romantic...)

Valentines day workout!
10 Chair dips
10 Burpees
10 Neider press
10 Squats

x amrap (as many rounds as possible) in 20 minutes

I did 14 rounds

Followed by 15 minutes of continuous core work.

This week is a back off week so expect slightly less output, we have a back off week once every four weeks, it helps prevent injury and allows the body to heal so effectively we come back stronger the next week.

The rest of the day was spent relaxing together, we cooked a nice tea of curry and homemade chips then made each other desert. I made Mike peanut butter balls - these are really simple, peanut butter, applesauce, vanilla and xylitol, mixed up and formed into balls which you leave in the fridge. I don't really measure ingredients just throw them in but there is probably about 3 parts PB to 1 part applesauce, a teaspoon of vanilla and xylitol to taste. Mike made me heart shaped spelt pancakes.. should have took a picture, sorry!

We watched 50 first dates which happened to be on TV, I'd never seen it before but I enjoyed it, it was a lot funnier than I thought it would be. Then we watched Madagascar.. I'm a sucker for animated kids films!!

Hope everyone had a great day!


  1. i saw madagascar in theaters with my best friend. i can't remember how old we were but, aside from parents, we were by far the oldest peeps there!!

  2. Nice day. My DH and I did a 5k run race together in the city (San Fran), then came back and watched olympics that nite;-)

  3. Sounds like a wonderful day! Peanut butter balls--be still my heart! No chocolate involved in those??
    The achilles is definitely better, just not sure if it's all the way better. We'll see what tomorrow brings. Thanks so much for asking!
