Training doesn’t stop

My kitty woke me up quite early this morning and after only 6h of sleep I surprisingly didn’t feel too tired. Stupidly I had a latte around 8pm last night at work (FYI I don’t drink coffee at all) and the caffeine effect worked until about 2am and I couldn’t sleep.
Anyway… I still went for a run as planned, even tho half way it started pouring the rain. I ran 8.40km and it was one of the best runs I’ve done so far. I felt great and still had enough energy to run more but had to return back home and get ready for work.
I have explored new routes and met some geese on the way (oh boy they were quite aggressive as they had babies around).

Don’t give up even if the weather isn’t according to your plans. We are on the mission here to inspire others and most importantly to raise money for Matthias. Please click on the just giving donation button and drop us a £1 or few 🙂

Have a lovely day everyone. Keep moving! 😘

Breakfast Club Challenge

I just find myself invited to the Breakfast Club Challenge! Friend from Nike+ challenged me and loads other passionate runners to run 80.5km in 30 days. Great motivation to train myself towards the half marathon!

Teleport – Tuesday

How amazing it would be to get from one place to another within one second. Like in the movie JUMPER. Have you seen it? If not here its trailer here. So you disappear at one place and appear at another place. I guess it would be too messy, people would cut conversations short by disappearing. Maybe we would stop communicating with each other. What about privacy? How could you stop someone entering your house?

Loads to think about, but here on this blog we gonna keep it simple. So after Smoothie-Sunday and Motivation-Monday we created Teleport-Tuesday. We gonna share a place every Tuesday, where we would love to train for the half marathon.

Chocolate Avocado Mousse

There’s something about the dessert. It just completes a good meal and we all love them.
I love chocolate mousse desserts, but since I have started eating clean I have found a perfect replacement for regular mousse. And let me tell you…this tastes so much better.

Recipe:
4 very ripe avocados
1/2 cup of dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup of agave or honey
1/2 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 of almond (coconut) milk
1 tbsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp Himalayan salt

Melt the chocolate chips and let it cool on the side. Blend rest of the ingredients with the melted chocolate to get this lovely smooth chocolate mousse.
As a topping I chose to caramelise banana in coconut oil. You can add popcorn instead or any fruit you like.

Topping:
1 banana
1tbsp coconut oil
3 tbsp coconut or brown sugar

– melt the coconut oil and stir the sliced banana until brown. Add sugar to caramelise banana slices.
– once the banana is ready add it on the top of the mousse and place in the fridge to chill for at the least 3 hours.

ENJOY!! 😛

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

How to kill cravings: Raw chocolate cinnamon kale chips

We all get cravings and sometimes it’s hard to resist and yes I know… You go and clear the fridge or your treats cupboard. There is nothing wrong with occasional cheating, but we still can make the right choices when the craving time arrives.
Recently I have discovered kale raw chocolate and cinnamon chips. It’s a healthy option that will satisfy your cravings and at the end you don’t have to feel guilty.
You can buy these in Whole Foods store and luckily my local small nutrition store supplies them too. It’s definitely worth trying. If you are a chocolate lover, you still can have a piece of chocolate…just make sure you eat good quality dark chocolate and have just a piece. When you try to eat clean, make sure you avoid all the processed food, sugar and saturated fat.
We are training hard to achieve our goal of raising enough money for Matthias. Please support us if you like our blog and efforts.

Sunday Smoothie Recipe: Keeping it simple

Here we go it’s Sunday again and I can’t believe how quickly the weekend has gone.
We will be posting every Sunday smoothie recipes we like, have already tried or experimented with. Please feel free to comment and add more ideas. It would be absolutely fantastic if you could donate £1 or more if you feel like to help us to raise money for Matthias’ life saving surgery.

Today I decided to keep it very simple and used one of my top favourite fruits.

1 banana
Handful of strawberries
Handful of raspberries
1tbsp of chia seeds

Chop the fruits and add everything to the blender and blend until smooth. I usually pour little bit of water to make it less thick. But you can do it without adding any water, depending on your preference.
Sometimes I add plain soy yoghurt or Greek, however as I’m avoiding dairy the soy option works for me fine.
I hope you like this smoothie and if you do please donate ;).
