Outside the window, the sun is shining. I repeat, THE SUN IS SHINING! It's been doing that for the past eight days in a row. The forecast says it's not to last (derr) so I've been making the most of it: digging like a mofo in the allotment, walking round the yard barefoot, eating handfuls of blueberries and nagging Gareth about sunscreen.
Now here be links:
- Pea, Spring Onion and Rocket Risotto – Lately I've been revisiting old favourite recipes – the no-brainer ones that make busting lard fun and tasty. This Weight Watchers recipe is great – light spring flavours, yet cosy, because we're still in Scotland after all.
- My non-fat blog is back from the dead! Over there I'm also on mission to try 52 Perfumes in 52 Weeks – do you have any favourite scents? I've still got 39 to go!
- I love Amber and her Body Positive Yoga . I posted a link to her sun salutation modifications on Facebook last week but I also liked her Stop postponing your life until you lose the weight post:
“I want to start lifting weights so first I need to get stronger".
"I want to be a yogi so I need to get more flexible first.”
Do you know how people get strong? They lift weights.
Do you know how yogis do backbends? They practice yoga.
Hell yeah! I'm glad I didn't listen to that gloomy voice that said, "don't go to yoga til you've re-lost that lard". I've been consistently doing Pilates for over a year now, and yoga for about six months. I'm so much stronger than when I started, in spite of wishing for a yoga snorkel at times. If I'd listened to that voice I'd just be another year older and no bendier. With time and practice, I hope to backbend like Amber some day. Rock on.
