You gotta do yourself a favour

And head to Kek's Good Food Blog stat! I just made the Casablanca Chicken (well, rather I chucked it all in the slow cooker this morning) and it is awesome. I had it with green vegetables as per suggestion and it was really very tasty.

I spent another day at home doing nothing except home related stuff interspersed with some computer time and some reading and now I've got a nice clean house and a feeling of returning sanity! I still have paperwork to tackle but things are shaping up rather nicely.

I have been trying to decide what is the next move for me fitness and nutrition wise. Shelley came up with the idea of doing another photo shoot in a few months time so I can be "fabulous at forty". I think this is awesome because I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the photos on Monday. And I think my plan is going to centre more around strength training as opposed to cardio because it's the biggest challenge for me. I want to focus on improving my strength! So the first move is for me to start prioritizing it more - that is I'm going to start with strength training, rather than cardio (I prefer to do it the other way around) as my first port of call.

Heading back to work tomorrow. I've got meals all planned out and all I have to do now is plan my workout.

Glad you liked the recipe - it was pretty awesome. Ah, who needs modesty? ;o)

Hey Liz

Glad to hear you're on the mend and feeling like your normal self.

I can highly recommend the fit-and-fab-at-40 photo shoot! I'm so glad I did it, and the memories for me will last a lifetime! I'm now thinking of doing a photo shoot annually as my body changes and I hopefully put on more muscle.

Do you have more pics to share?
