BBQ time!

Maddie the barbecue master 😉

Hi lovelies! I was meant to get a blog post up earlier today but I just had to get myself sorted before heading into the office this morning so didn’t have time to properly write a post. Sorry about that!

I had a very busy but fun last day of my weekend. Sunday ended up being quite a nice day weather wise with the sun peaking out. In the morning I went to the gym and did some deadlifts, front squats and cleans as well as push ups and TRX core stuff. A fun mix of whatever I felt like. I can actually do a couple of push ups properly now. I couldn’t believe it when it happened recently. I’ve been practicing them so much so I was thrilled when I finally saw the hard work pay off! Straight afterwards I headed over towards Partick to have brunch with Faye because I really wanted to try out the new organic restaurant Down to Earth Organic.

I’ve been very excited for them to open and the pictures on their Facebook look amazing. I’m not going to say much about my experience but I will say that it was disappointing. Oh well sometimes it happens but I’m hoping they’ll turn it around, I would love for it to be good.

Anyway, it was great seeing Faye and hearing what she’s been up to. She was dogsitting little Opie and of course this made me super happy, dog obsessed as I am. He was so little and cosy to have on your lap so I sat petting him for ages.

Afterwards I ran home to get showered and then headed out the door to see my sister Ellie and her boyfriend Hampus. We wandered about in town and eventually got some nibbles to sit down and have in Glasgow Green. I went into Picnic to get a raw dessert because I really felt like having something sweet. We sat there for ages in the nice weather and eventually decided to have a barbecue all of us when Jamie got off work.

So in the evening we met up at Hampus’s flat and had a fun evening of barbecuing. The first of the year and it was delicious. We didn’t have time to prepare anything veggie so we ended up having some salmon skewers, halloumi, mushrooms and a salad. It was amazing! Next time I would love to make some veggie burgers or something. Think that would be delicious to barbecue.

We got home quite late and I was booked in for a session at G5 in the morning today but I decided to cancel it to get a good night’s sleep to start my week off nice and refreshed. Unfortunately that meant no gym today because it’s a bank holiday and nothing is open this evening but oh well. I’m going to train pretty much everyday for the rest of the week so I’m not feeling bad about it at all. It’s more that it feels strange not going haha.

I’m just waiting now for Jamie to get home and we’re going to cook dinner together and watch My Kitchen Rules. Can’t wait!!

Speak soon my dears xxx
