Day 3

Today is officially day 4, but it is my third workout, I skipped day 2. I got home late tonight but made sure I did the workout anyway, even if it was almost 10.30pm. The bonus was that my little ones were tucked up in bed and so today I missed out on the added challenge of small people sitting on my stomach and bouncing whilst I gasp for air and try to do sit ups.

Even though it's only day 3, I've already noticed some benefits in being able to do more of the program properly. I was able to do some push ups, albeit girls pushups and probably no where near deep enough. I was also able to do all of the star jumps. The only part that i'm still really having trouble with is the butt kicks. I do it as a step rather than the bouncy hop and literally kick my butt, haha.

Feel the Love Fridays

Feeling the love this Friday, with a sweet lunch for my girls and myself. Please feel free to add your own links in the comments box. If anyone knows how I can create a link up, please let me know and I will add that in.

Hope that you're all feeling the love this Friday (even during challenging times, like when your 2 and a half year old won't have a nap and instead finds ice-packs in the freezer and kindly offers to put them on your nose.....)

Have a great weekend :)

Baby and Kids Market TOMORROW

I've recently had a bit of a break from blogging. With the devastation around the world, it seemed as though talking about the details of my life was a little insignificant. I have missed it though and think it might be time for me to get started again.

This is just a short post, to say that i'll have a stall at the "Baby and Kids Market" in Flemington tomorrow. I'll be selling off a lot of the clothes and toys my girls have grown out of. If your at the market, come by and say "hi". I'll be at stall number three, the third one in as you walk in.

Wish me luck, I'm hoping not to bring anything home again!

Hazelnut and Banana Muffins

I couldn't resist a big bag of bananas at our local supermarket yesterday, when they were marked at a mere 50c. Instantly I thought I would make some banana cakes and pop them in the freezer until needed.

I happened to come across this recipe for a hazelnut and banana cake which looked delicious and decided to give that a try as well. I decided to make cupcakes instead of cakes and mixed my banana into the cake batter, rather than layer it on top, as suggested in the original recipe.

It turned out to be absolutely delicious and something I will certainly make again. I think that it would also be nice if you added a little fruit to the mixture, something like apple, blueberry or plum would work well. (They really do taste much better than they look!)

For those who haven't heard, the lovely Steph at has organised a softie drive, with the toys to be distributed to children in QLD who've lost their possessions due to the floods. I encourage everyone who can to get on board with this project, not only will the children get a lovely toy, it will be filled with love from the maker, extra special!
